Jorge Bustamante of United Nations to review immigration in Prince William County, Virginia

The United Nations' special rapporteur on migrants' rights, Jorge Bustamante will be paying a visit to Prince William County, Virginia to review their strict anti-illegal immigration ordinance (link). He'll be visiting Manassas and Woodbridge and trying to speak with local officials on June 10 and 11, and his visit might have been orchestrated by the extremist group Mexicanos Sin Fronteras.

Among other things, Bustamante is a Mexican citizen and partisan who wanted Mexican immigrants to the U.S. to become citizens of this country in order to push Mexico's agenda inside the U.S. This link has newspaper reports with him referring to "Nazi-style deportations" ("deportaciones estilo nazi", 5/25/2008, oem.com.mx/oem/notas/n710628.htm). Five days earlier (oem.com.mx/elsoldelbajio/notas/n704682.htm) he compared immigration raids to those carried out by the Nazis, although he said there were differences.

If you're in the area and want to do something, go to public events and ask those who support his visit to denounce his past statements and actions, then upload their responses to video sharing sites. Don't bother with rants, emotional or otherwise, and don't bother asking Bustamante something unless it's good. Concentrate on local officials or those who work for local groups. Kent Willis of the Virginia American Civil Liberties Union is quoted in the article, but his position on the visit isn't clear (although it can be assumed).

UPDATE: Here's video of a Lou Dobbs report on the visit: link.

UPDATE 2: Uh oh! From this:
A United Nations human rights official has postponed a planned visit to inspect the treatment of immigrant workers in Prince William County, according to the activist group Mexicans Without Borders. The group had welcomed the outside scrutiny, saying the county's illegal-immigration policies have "created a climate where suspicion and terror thrive."

Jorge A. Bustamante, a U.N. special rapporteur for human rights of migrants, called off a visit planned for yesterday and today. In a letter to Mexicans Without Borders, Bustamante cited "something unexpected of extreme gravity" that was "totally outside of my control" as a reason and did not indicate when he would reschedule the trip.

If he is anything like the Bustamante we had here in California, then you can expect nothing but pro illegal propaganda from this international beaner. Makes this American sick!

eh

So we've got an Hispanic who's going to, I assume, pass judgement on whether it's OK or not for the US to enforce immigration law (on the rare occasions that we do) in a locale where no doubt -- like most other places actually -- said enforcement most heavily affects Latinos. Why not?
