New Report Says Zelaya Removal was Legal

A new report by the Library of Congress revealed former Honduran President Manuel Zelaya was removed from power legally and constitutionally. 
    
The report, released by Congressman Aaron Schock, contradicts the current policy of President Obama and most of the international community which insists that Zelaya be immediately reinstated. 
    
The ousted president has taken refuge in the Brazilian embassy, which is now surrounded by Honduran troops and police.
    
Zelaya's return is encouraging a new set of players, according to one Honduras resident who spoke with CBN News via Skype.

"His desire to return, and the international community, the pressure that they've put, has given some impetus to certain groups in the country, of a left-wing nature," said Daniel Dyer.

"Marxists that were, as I said before, they were not dead, but they were dormant," he added. "So they used what happened with Zelaya to come up into prominence and to start demonstrations and different things like that."

Along with the Library of Congress report, Congressman Schock said the U.S. should respect the removal of Zelaya and resume financial aid the country.

Sunday, Honduran officials gave Brazil a 10 day ultimatum to decide whether to surrender Zelaya for arrest or grant him asylum to be taken out of Honduras. However, officials did not state what would happen after the ten days.

Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva responded to the push from Honduras.

Da Silva said Brazil "doesn't accept ultimatums from coup-plotters."
