San Antonio politicians and leaders are working to get the Alamo designated as a United Nations World Heritage Site, which is part of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, or Unesco.

If that happens, the U.N. could have influence in the way Texas manages and takes care of the Alamo. Besides the Alamo, there are four other Spanish colonial missions in San Antonio considered for inclusion.

One state politician told BenSwann.com’s Joshua Cook that Texans got visibly angry when they heard about this. “Texans are incensed with the idea of this effort,” the state politician added.

But Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Peterson said that theories are incorrect: “Some folks might think that getting on this list means the U.N. has some sort of influence at the Alamo. Those folks must not be from around here,” Patterson said. “The people of Texas own the Alamo now and in the future. Nothing is going to change that.”

But, as seen recently, projects in the area of the Alamo are receiving extra scrutiny, to not interfere with the site’s World Heritage Site application.

One case in particular is a proposed 26-story hotel and time-share building atop the Joske’s Building at the Alamo Plaza, which could jeopardize the designation.

“No one on the council is going to do anything that jeopardizes the World Heritage designation,” said San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro.

Another interesting side of this story is Unesco itself. There is federal law forbidding the payment of dues to Unesco. The U.S. is two years behind in dues and could lose its vote on the group’s governing conference completely. There is a congressional ban on contributing to U.N. agencies that admit Palestine. Unesco admitted Palestine in 2011.

One politician expressed concern about the U.N. using its influence to diminish the 2nd Amendment at the Alamo.

In Texas this is a red hot issue. Texans are angry that the U.N. would choose the Alamo, a symbol of Texas independence, to gain more influence and a foothold in the U.S.
