This is "all" moot under international law. The United States is signatory to multiple UN Declarations on, for example, the Rights of the Child. Those signatory declarations have the force of "Treaty" law, and international treaties form the "supreme law of the land" in this country, under Article VI of the Constitution; not what Rick Perry "thinks."
You seriously practice International Law? I would expect someone who is practicing International Law to understand the ratification process better.
No "declarations" from the UN or any other organization or body carries the "force of 'treaty' law" or "forms the supreme law of the land" in this country'" under any article of the Constitution, until it has two thirds of the vote of the United States Senate.
Article II, section II of the Constitution:
"He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators Present concur". Any President of the U.S. can be a signatory to anything he likes, but until he has a two thirds majority of the Senate it has no more "Force of "'treaty' law" or "forms the supreme law of the land" than your grocery list!
That's something you learn in a ninth grade civics class, and something someone practicing International Law should certainly be well aware of.
FYI, "the Rights of the Child", lacking a vote of two thirds of the Senate, as yet has not been ratified by the United States and, therefor, does not form "the supreme law of the land", therefor, it has no more legal force in the United States than your grocery list does.
