US senators blast Arizona-China rights comparison


news.yahoo.com

A top US diplomat who reportedly compared a tough new immigration law in Arizona to China's rights record must retract his "offensive" remark and apologize, the state's two US senators demanded Tuesday.

Republican Senators Jon Kyl and John McCain accused Assistant Secretary of State Michael Posner of implying that the Arizona measure "is morally equivalent to China's persistent pattern of abuse and repression of its people."

I wouldn't be suprised if this guy hasn't read the Arizona law himself. Either that, or he has no idea on how bad China's human rights violations are. Actually both those scenarios are probably true.

I still don't understand why the US is apologizing to China over the Arizona law..
...oh well.

Yeah that remark was pretty groveling. Seems McCain is starting to grow some with his comments to Big Sis Napolitano yesterday. Also some Representative today was talking about new sightings of Mexican helicopters in Texas airspace, and the complete silence of the Executive branch on this subject. Makes you wonder who all is involved with this Southern Border problem.

Evidently the federal government doesn't care... which is why Arizona took matters into their own hands.
