Scandal: Head of UN Communications Incites Illegal Entry Into U.S. says ‘It’s Never a Crime”
[Sara Carter] “It is never a crime to seek asylum in another country even if one enters a country irregularly,” said Melissa Flemming, the Head of United Nations Communications.

Fleming continued to say in her Facebook post that “the right to seek asylum is enshrined in Article 14 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights & was made binding by the 1951 Refugee Convention.”

Fleming is an American, who last August was appointed by United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres as the Under-Secretary-General for Global Communications.

Since 2009, Fleming has been Head of Global Communications and Spokesperson in the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Geneva. The same organization that Rep. Ilhan Omar invited last week to take over the management of United States’ southern border.

“So we have to bring in the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees (UNHCR) – an agency that has the expertise and the training to handle massive flows of refugees humanely,” said Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) to a Minneapolis audience this week referring to the situation in our southern border.

#1 When any UN creature speaks, it should be immediately shot as an example to others. Put the UN in it's proper place, under our boot heel.

#2 Would it be so bad if America outsourced wetwork to Russia and the UAE ? Some people just beg the use of polonium and power saws.

#3 I suspect after the civil war, the UN will be a much smaller organization returned to Geneva.

#4 Ref #3: Yes, much smaller. A PO box in Sheboygan should suffice.

#5 Sheboygan is a nice little city on the lake. Don't go giving the UN folks ideas. With them, a PO Box will require 'staff'.

#7 As long as they understand any "staff" will be stuffed into the PO box to live and work, that's okay.

#10 I've always said we should move the UN to the center of the largest mass grave we e can find. If only so they can feel at home.

#13 If she's an American she should be withdrawn from any duties at the UN. If she is a bureaucrat that can't be withdrawn then her citizenship should be revoked and the UN can provide her with citizenship.

The right to seek asylum is not the case for all illegals. Such a statement shows she's a total moron or out to kneecap the US.

#14 I'm not a lawyer, but aren't asylum seekers required by the treaty to seek asylum in the first country they come to? So only Mexicans could legitimately claim asylum in the US. Guatemalans, Salvadorans, etc. who come in through Mexico should claim asylum in Mexico.

Of course, many of the "refugees" are coached what to say to claim asylum, even if they are just trying to sneak in.

#16 Asylum should be funded by charity not taxpayer extortion.

Once the charity money is used up Asylum seekers should look elsewhere.

#17 There was no boorish verbiage hurled
As the bright UN banner unfurled
On its HQ's rotation
To a new shithole nation:
The very worst place in the world!

An annual occasion, you see, which all the helpful class celebrated as a renewed opportunity for self-effacement and example-setting!
