Arizona Gov. Jan ‘the Klan’ Brewer demanded U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton remove a reference to the state’s highly controversial immigration law from a State Department report to the United Nations’ human rights commissioner.
The report included the Dept. of Justice’s legal challenge to the law on a list of ways the Federal government is protecting human rights.
In a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Brewer says it is “downright offensive” that a state law would be included in the report, which was drafted as part of a larger UN review of human rights in all member nations every four years.
“The idea of our own American government submitting the duly enacted laws of a state of the United States to ‘review’ by the United Nations is internationalism run amok and unconstitutional.”
Arizona’s SB 1070 mandates police and other public service people such as teachers, nurses and doctors, whose salaries are paid from state-funded sources, investigate the immigration status of people they suspect are in the state of Arizona illegally.
