Texas threatens to arrest UN observers

LINK

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) also weighed in, tweeting “No UN monitors/inspectors will be part of any TX election process; I commend @Txsecofstate for swift action to clarify issue.”

Texas would lose if theis went to the courts. U.S. treaties trump state's rights.

What U.S. treaty calls for this? It is unconstitutional. We might as well as asked for England to have supervised our first election. That makes as much sense.

They would, after the observers spent some time in a friendly Texas jail.

The OSCE may be entitled to its opinions about Voter ID laws, but your opinion is legally irrelevant in the United States, where the Supreme Court has already determined that Voter ID laws are constitutional,” Abbott wrote. “If OSCE members want to learn more about our election processes so they can improve their own democratic systems, we welcome the opportunity to discuss the measures Texas has implemented to protect the integrity of elections. However, groups and individuals from outside the United States are not allowed to influence or interfere with the election process in Texas.”

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott further fueled the controversy on Tuesday when he sent a letter to the OSCE warning the organization that its representatives “are not authorized by Texas law to enter a polling place” and that it “may be a criminal offense for OSCE’s representatives to maintain a presence within 100 feet of a polling place's entrance.”

I hope it does go to court. The coverage in the media would open the eyes.

I hope the minute that they enter Texas, they are arrested!
