The United Nations doesn't recognize the concept of illegal immigration - and refuses to use that term when referring to foreigners who flout U.S. immigration laws by crossing the border without documentation.
So says Eric Shawn, whose new book "The U.N. Exposed," blows the lid off the corrpution, double-dealing and anti-U.S. resentment that permeates the world body.
"In U.N. world there's no such thing as an illegal alien or illegal immigrant," Shawn told Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly Wednesday night. "They call it an irregular migrant."
Legal immigrants, on the other hand, are referred to as "regular migrants," Shawn said.
"Basically they want them to have the same rights as the documented immigrants," the one-time Fox street reporter explained. "They say that in [their] convention."
"[It] protects the human rights, they say, of the migrants. It's been signed by Mexico, not by us."
Shawn went on to note that the head of the U.N.'s immigration agency is a Mexican official. "It's ironic," he told O'Reilly, "because Mexico has some of the toughest laws against illegal immigration."
Asked if official U.N. policy was to encourage open borders, Shawn told O'Reilly: "Basically, as long as it's legal. They're not for illegal immigration, but they try to encourage migration as much as possible."
