The great Republic of Texas is telling the UN that it's so-called election monitors are not welcome in polling places in Texas and warned them to stay at least 100' away from any place where voters are casting ballots.
The Director of the UN's Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe arrogantly stated that the U.S. is "obligated" to invite the observers to monitor our elections.
Obligated? As a sovereign nation, we are not "obligated" invite you or any other third-world podunk piece of crap country to monitor our elections. It doesn't sound like Texas believes they are either, seeing they essentially just told you to kiss their Texas-sized ass!

Texas authorities have threatened to arrest international election observers, prompting a furious response from the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE).
“The threat of criminal sanctions against [international] observers is unacceptable,” Janez Lenarčič, the Director of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), said in a statement. “The United States, like all countries in the OSCE, has an obligation to invite ODIHR observers to observe its elections.”
