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

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.
