U.S. Must Embrace Obligations of Global Citizenship and Ratify and Apply International Treaties


www.centerforinquiry.net

The International Court of Justice had ruled that the convictions of José Medellin and other Mexican nationals be reviewed because they had been denied their rights under the Vienna Convention—a treaty to which the United States is a party. The Vienna Convention requires foreign consulates to be informed when one of their citizens is arrested.

The Supreme Court’s decision forms part of a disturbing pattern in recent years in which the United States has either repudiated or refused to honor its international commitments and obligations. Since 2000, United Nations members have committed themselves to 929 new treaty actions. In that same period, the United State reversed its support for at least five major treaties, including the Kyoto Protocol on Climate Change, the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention, the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons Treaty and the International Criminal Court.

If they don't like us then kick us out. I don't feel like paying higher taxes for somebody to say a illegal alien in the US can't be charged and convicted of the crime of raping and killing underaged girls, and if thats the way they feel I don't want any part of there global citizenship.

All it means is that they need to contact someone from there country to setup legal counsel. . . The states didn't do that as per the treaty. So technically they can claim a mis-trial.

How did you get what you said out of.

?

If proper procedure was followed then all would be well . Ignorance of the law does not protect you from it.

Spreme court ruled that Texas has the right to go foward. So now there being told by globalist that they can't. So looks like the law is on there side. Globalist laws and treaties were ruled against by supreme court.

Washington - The US Supreme Court on Tuesday delivered a setback to President Bush's expansive vision of presidential power, ruling that a unilateral attempt by Mr. Bush to order state courts to comply with an international treaty violated "first principles" of constitutional government.
