Great, so now America is being chastised for disrespecting human rights.

Courtesy of the AP:

The United Nations human rights office called on the Trump administration Tuesday to “immediately halt” its accelerating policy of separating children from their parents after they cross the U.S. border with Mexico, insisting there’s “nothing normal about detaining children.”

Ravina Shamdasani, a spokeswoman for the U.N. high commissioner for refugees, scolded the United States over the hundreds of children removed from parents who were jailed for entering the country illegally. She said that border control appears to take precedence over child protection and care in the U.S.

“The use of immigration detention and family separation as a deterrent runs counter to human rights standards and principles,” Shamdasani said during a briefing in Geneva. “The child’s best interest should always come first.”

Gee, who could have imagined that the United Nations might get upset if America started taking children away, housing them in what appears to be modified dog kennels, and then keeping them separated from family members for months at a time? 

You know I’m old enough to remember when America was the one chastising other countries for human rights violations.

    “Warrants obtained from the courthouse show that the man named in court papers was charged with 16 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor third degree and two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor second degree on Feb. 1, 2017.

    The charges are pending” “Greenville County Sheriff’s Office uncovered a cache of videos uploaded and distributed by Wall that depict young girls either nude or performing sexual acts on camera. Some videos include girls as young as 2 years old, warrants state. Many of the warrants state the girls in the videos were between the ages of 8 and 10. Some included girls as old as 15. In one video, according to a warrant, a young girl is seen performing sex acts on a dog.

    The warrants state that Wall is a self-proclaimed hebephiliac, an adult sexually interested in pubescent children.”

    “”I’m about to feel obligated to file suit against your newspaper for harassment,””
    “Wall was mentioned in a prior story in The Greenville News in July 2017 when the Sheriff’s Office announced the arrests of more than a dozen men in connection to an Internet Crimes Against Children investigation.”

    ““After the first bang, I heard at least 15 bangs,” Medina said.

    The campus monitor said the other security guard inside the building saw Cruz go inside and hid in a janitor’s closet when the gunfire began.”
    “Medina said school officials recognized Cruz as a potential threat due to his bizarre and menacing behavior before he was removed from the school due to behavioral issues.

    The former student wore a camouflage mask to scare classmates and wrote “666” and a swastika on his backpack, and he would hide behind poles and jump out to scare passersby.

    “We had a meeting about him last year, and we said if there’s going to be anybody who’s going to come to this school and shoot this school up, it’s going to be that kid,” “
