Nikki Haley UN voteAn immigration watchdog is praising Ambassador Nikki Haley for telling the United Nations to butt out of the United States' immigration policies.

The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations specifically called out the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights after it condemned the U.S. for enforcing its immigration laws and called crossing the U.S. border illegally an "administrative offense."

"We will remain a generous country but we are also a sovereign country, with laws that decide how best to control our borders and protect our people," she responded. "Neither the United Nations nor anyone else will dictate how the United States upholds its borders."

Mehlman

Ira Mehlman, a a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, or FAIR, says Haley made it clear that the U.S. has a "sovereign right" to protect its borders and enforce its immigration laws.

"And we are not going to allow people to abuse the sovereignty of the United States," he says, "by just showing up here and trying to  take advantage of our humanitarian policies to get into the United States illegally."

What likely angered Haley, Mehlman observes, is the hypocrisy of the UN bureaucrats who denounced the U.S. but ignore the human rights abuses of other members.

"You've countries like Afghanistan and Venezuela, and Cuba and China," says Mehlman. "These are some of the most egregious violators of human rights in the world."
