UN Commissioner Says American Border Policies Are ‘Unconscionable’



In a statement dripping with hypocrisy and irony, the The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights took a shot at American border policies that have resulted in illegal immigrants and their children being separated.

Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein is the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, and in an interview on CNN he said:

“The thought that any state would seek to deter parents by inflicting such abuse on children is unconscionable … People do not lose their human rights by virtue of crossing a border without a visa.”

This is the same UN that has not only historically overlooked human rights violations by members of its own Security Council, but Al Hussein himself refused to condemn the terror attacks against Israel in Gaza just a few weeks ago.

Oh, and about that UN Human Rights Council, yeah … I’m not sure its members are shining examples of human rights …

The UN doesn’t have much credibility on this issue, so the High Commissioner can spare us the sanctimonious finger wagging and hand wringing about how we police our own borders.
