State Dept. to Texas: International election monitors have “full immunity.”

In response to a letter dispatched earlier this by the Texas Attorney General regarding international election observers invading election polls this Election Day, according to the Department of State, these global election monitors have ‘full immunity’ from being arrested in the United States.


"…I’m not going to get into any kind of hypothetical situations or predict where this is going to go other than to say we have every expectation that this will be worked out and to state the fact, which is that under U.S. law they are eligible for immunities,’ said State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland. Reporters tried to get her to state explicitly that Texas could not arrest election observers from the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), but Nuland would only reiterate that OSCE observers have full immunity.
Attorney General Greg Abbott, R-Texas, warned OSCE that it ‘may be a criminal offense for OSCE’s representatives to maintain a presence within 100 feet of a polling place’s entrance,’ as The Hill noted…."   
Considering all of the election fraud that has been committed by Progressives, it can be said that the OSCE is a failure because they either missed all of it, ignored voter fraud and/or were complicit with the thugs committing such acts.
More importantly is the fact that the OSCE is not recognized or welcome on U. S. soil by the American people nor should they be.
Furthermore, I do not give a hoot about the State Department’s side of the argument, most of whom were not elected to office.
This American stands with Texas and welcomes the filming and arrest of anti-Americans monitoring our election process. Other states would do well to follow Texas’ lead.
Bully Pulpit
Who decided that the election poll invaders have full immunity?  They are foreign nationals NOT diplomatic officials and, therefore, not entitled to diplomatic immunity.

The implication by the State Department that foreign nationals have diplomatic immunity, in this case, U N election monitors is false and an attempt by the Obama administration to bully state and local officials, their law enforcement and the citizenry into submission.

Below is a list of polling sites along with the names of UN officials who will be monitoring the polls on Election Day.
