U.S. civil rights advocates aired their concerns about the recent Michael Brown shooting to the United Nations in Geneva, according to a press call from the organizations on Wednesday.

“This issue was front and center,” Hilary O. Shelton, director of the NAACP Washington Bureau, explained during the call.

According to Shelton, Trayvon Martin’s mother Sabrina Fulton and Jordan Davis’s father Ron Davis told their stories about losing their teenage children in shootings in each of the pre-briefings of the process.

“I think that everyone was outraged and horrified to hear that, yet again, it had happened in St. Louis, Missouri,” he said.

The group of activists presented to a U.N. panel in Geneva, Switzerland, documenting their concerns of U.S. compliance with the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (CERD) treaty.

The UN has no business what-so-ever interfering in this! This is a matter for this country, and this country alone, to handle! Screw the NAACP! They ae nothing but trouble makers and cause more harm than good!

TRUE AND THE UN HAS NO BUS HERE WE ARE A SOVEREIGN NATION THEY NEED TO GET OUT OF THE US

Bravo brother!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Useless Nations should be removed and the building used to house illegals while they are being readied for deportation or to house the homeless,that would save us billions a year 

Obummer should tell the UN to stay the hell out of Missouri business. The racist Obummer is looking for an excuse to invoke Marshall Law. BEWARE Americans. This could be happen soon. The racist Holder, Sharpton, and Jackson are encouraging the riots. Just like they did with the Martin case. Let the FBI finish their investigation and stop the riots. Arrest any and all lawbreakers, white or black.

But not the illegal aliens

love the way you think kiddu

Obummer believes in one world government and that is the UN.  He is trying to make us subservient to it and the NAACP knows it. 

Why don't the NAACP concern themselves with the thousands of black youth killing each other is such places as Chicago, NY, LA, etc.  Oh, that's right, they are all Democrat run cities in Democrat run states, let the killings continue rather than criticize Democrats for not doing their jobs.......

Get the USA out of the UN, and kick the UN out of the USA! PERIOD! They are NOT our friends, PERIOD!

Totally agree with you, Frank! Absolutely! The UN is about as useful as tits on a bull!

That does have a purpose. It shows that his offspring can provide for their young

   WTF! Is this something that was slipped by this Nation into the USELESS UN. The NAACP are a bunch of Race baiters just Like Jessie Jackson and The Rev, A. Sharpton.

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
