Pseudo Intellectual host Lauren Chen explained the United Nations claim that living in someone else's country is a "Universal Human Right" is fundamentally wrong.

According to the U.N., Article 14 of the U.N.'s Universal Declaration of Human Rights: Everyone has the right to seek and enjoy asylum from persecution in other countries.

Lauren took a strong stance, and rhetorically asked, "I'm sorry, no. How on Earth is that a human right?" "You don't have the right to enjoy asylum in other countries. Where would that right come from?"

"That would be a privilege afforded to you by the generosity of the host citizens. It would not be a right that you are owed," Lauren said.

She went on to talk about the vague definition of the word "persecution" and how virtually anyone would qualify for asylum under the U.N.'s declaration.

Article 25 adds "Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and his family, including food, clothing, housing,and medical care...."

According to Lauren, what the U.N. is saying is that it's everyone's human right to just show up at your country and say, 'Hey, I'm going to enjoy asylum here.' And in order to not violate their rights, not only would you have to let them in, but you would also be obligated to give then food, housing and clothing.

"Obviously that provides huge incentive for literally anyone that's in a country that's worse off than the U.S. or Canada to show up and request asylum," Lauren concluded.

The clip concluded with the detrimental effects that the U.N.'s "relocation plan" would have on both the developed and developing countries.

"Moving everyone from developing countries into developed countries is not going to make developing countries any better. That's not a development plan, that's a relocation plan. And not only does mass relocation not help the countries of origin in any way, but it's also short sighted in regard to the well-being of the developed countries .... We're talking about mass relocation. we're not talking about resettling individuals. We're resettling groups," Chen explained.

She added that, "If there's one lesson to be learned about the immigration patterns of previous generations and immigration patterns now, it's that individuals assimilate, groups do not."
