UN Rights Experts Criticize Arizona Law -- Oh Really!

I for one am glad the UN has weighted in on the border issue on our southern border with Mexico. It's nice to see that they are not asleep, and are watching the sheep cross the border.
All the Mexicans who enter the US illegally want is truth,justice,work,and a American flag to fly. If the citizens of Arizona don't understand that, then they are racists, and most likely violating international law!

U.N. human rights experts say a new law on illegal immigration in Arizona could violate international standards that are binding in the U.S.

The basic human rights regulations, signed by the U.S. and many other nations, include a rule against discrimination and one regarding the terms under which someone can be detained.

The experts say the law could result in potential discrimination against Mexicans, indigenous peoples and other minorities.

The law allows police to question anyone they suspect of being in the country illegally. Critics in the U.S. say it allows police to engage in racial profiling.

The U.N. experts said Tuesday the law indicates a "disturbing pattern of legislative activity hostile to ethnic minorities and immigrants."
