THE INFLUENCE OF IRWIN COTLER AND UN WATCH
 
The panel's members — Santiago Canton of Argentina, Irwin Cotler of Canada and Manuel Ventura of Costa Rica — called for a formal investigation into the charges and asked the Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), Luis Almagro, to submit their report to the ICC.

Irwin Cotler is a member of UN watch a right wing group that has targeted socialist countries and countries that have criticized Israel. Venezuela has been their target since at easy 2012 when Caprile, a Jewish opposition Leader ran against Chavez. The head of the group is Hillel Neuer a lawyer from Montreal. The group was also concerned about Chavez protesting against Israeli treatment of Gaza and in 2009 and against the expelling of the Israeli embassy. On Chavez death,  Hillel Neuer, the head of UN Watch, a pro-Israeli front group referred to Chavez, internationally, as a “symbol of evil;” and decried that Chavez was given a one-minute of silence tribute at the UN Human Rights Council.
 
UN watch has targeted President Chavez over the years and has had an inordinate amount of access to the international media.. Disturbingly one of UN Watch`s directors is another Canadian, MP Irwin Cotler.
 
The NGO, UN Watch, targets specific states like Venezuela and leaders, such as Hugo Chavez and ignores the failings of other states, such as the US, Canada and Israel.

Over the ages, the United States has routinely intervened in Latin America, overthrowing left-wing governments and propping up right-wing dictators. President Obama pressed a reset button of sorts last month when he traveled to Cuba and Argentina. Now it’s time for him to visit a Latin America country that is geographically smallest but where Washington’s footprint is large and the stain of intervention perhaps greatest—El Salvador.

U.S. Marines in Honduras in July 2016. 

 

Central American migrants – particularly unaccompanied minors – are again crossing the U.S.-Mexico boundary in large numbers.

 

In 2014, more than 68,000 unaccompanied Central American children were apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico boundary. This year so far there have been close to 60,000.

 

The mainstream narrative often reduces the causes of migration to factors unfolding in migrants’ home countries. In reality, migration is often a manifestation of a profoundly unequal and exploitative relationship between migrant-sending countries and countries of destination. Understanding this is vital to making immigration policy more effective and ethical.

 

Through my research on immigration and border policing, I have learned a lot about these dynamics. One example involves relations between Honduras and the United States.
