President Trump pulls U.S. out of UN global pact on migration

This surely will drive even more “Progressives” to scream at the sky.

AFP reports that in September 2016, the 193 members of the UN General Assembly — including the U.S. as determined by the Obama administration — unanimously adopted a non-binding political declaration called the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, which pledged to uphold the rights of refugees, help them resettle and ensure they have access to education and jobs.

On December 2, 2017, the Trump administration announced in a statement that the U.S. Mission to the United Nations had informed the UN Secretary-General that the United States is ending its participation in the Global Compact on Migration because the compact is “inconsistent” with U.S. policies:

“The New York Declaration contains numerous provisions that are inconsistent with US immigration and refugee policies and the Trump Administration’s immigration principles. As a result, President (Donald) Trump determined that the United States would end its participation in the Compact process that aims to reach international consensus at the UN in 2018.”

Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said that the United States would continue its “generosity” in supporting migrants and refugees around the world, but that “our decisions on immigration policies must always be made by Americans and Americans alone.” Henceforth, the United States “will decide how best to control our borders and who will be allowed to enter our country. The global approach in the New York Declaration is simply not compatible with US sovereignty.”

To no one’s surprise, the U.S. withdrawal from the migration compact elicited criticisms and condemnation:

  • Amnesty International slammed it as a “devastating abdication of responsibility in the world’s largest refugee crisis.”
  • UN General Assembly president Miroslav Lajcak of Slovakia said “migration is a global phenomenon that demands a global response and that multilateralism remains the best way to address global challenges.”
  • UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ spokesman, Farhan Aziz Haq, said: “We regret the decision but there is still plenty of time for US re-engagement. This should not disrupt the clear, unanimous outcome of the New York Declaration for such a global compact.”

Under President Trump’s “America First” policies, the United States has already withdrawn from several global commitments made by the Obama administration, including the Paris climate deal and UNESCO.

Almost all of the readers’ comments about the AFP news report are enthusiastically supportive of President Trump’s decision to withdraw the U.S. from the UN migrant compact. Here’s a sample:

“Keep up the good job Mr. Trump!”


“Thank you president Trump”

“Thank God President Trump didn’t get us involved in this mess.”

  1. European nations would be wise to follow our example. But also begin deporting the Muslim immigrants (preferably to some remote uninhabited, inhospitable location, it they want to survive as nations.

  2. That’s my President, that’s my man! He has demonstrated he is a man of his words, no backing down, and he demands respect from the UN, OAS, and every communist world organization created, Say NO TO ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, say YES TO BUILD THE WALL. THE ONLY DECLARATION AND PLEDGE IS TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, north, south, east and west, THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE FLAG, THE STRIPES AND STARS, FOREVER! God bless America and President Donal J. Trump!

  4. A necessary step taken on the road to Make America Great Again. When told that we must do something in order to go Forward, at least President Trump tells us where we are going. It sure beats the Pelosi Policy which would call for our finding out where we are going after blindly following orders given to get us there.

    If these united nations scum really meant to help the unfortunate who suffer the oppressive rule and internal strife of these rogue nations, they would attempt to affect the political atmosphere of these lawless countries, rather than burden the rest of the more fortunate nations with troubling masses of the most criminal. Undeniably, chaos is their intent, and more troubling, with the cooperation and blessings of our own government and naive citizens.

  7. Those that are screaming about this are screaming because of all the money they are going to lose by bringing in refugees (who knows if they are even real refugees) and giving them more than American citizens that go to work each day get. These groups that bring in these refugees make a bundle of money. In other words they sell out our country to line their own bank accounts.

    • MeThePeople . . . . Amen to that! For some time now the UN has been riding high, licking their chops over getting sovereignty over the United States. Their plan was to turn us into a third world country, rape and plunger our treasury, our land, and the product of US ingenuity. Thank God we have a President, although battered on all sides, keeps moving forward with decisions that really do . . . . MAKE AMERICA FIRST AGAIN!

    It seems odd to me that this need even be stated… But it’s a reflection on how the one-worlders view us — as the ATM machine they all have at their disposal, free to take our money, resources, military and recovery aid… our very country, at will, for whatever reason they deem necessary at the moment.

  13. More details emerge on US withdrawal from UN compact on refugees. US Ambassador Haley wanted to stay in, Trump said no!

    • Then Pres. Trump needs to fire Haley.


      • She won’t be missed.

      • I certainly do agree that the President should fire Haley. How wonderful that we have a leader who is so determined to do what he feels if right for our country, that he stays his course. God Bless him for that! You would just think that someone who serves at the pleasure of the President, would be smart enough to willingly go along with the President;s wishes. This leaves me wondering if Haley is a closet New World Order proponent!

        God Bless President Trump!

    • Best news ever! Keep it coming, POTUS Trump! > But you better keep an eye on Haley; or make it easy on yourself & get rid of her altogether.

      Better yet, pull the USA out of the UN & kick them out of the country. (It took the blackmailing of a former president, Woodrow Wilson, to get the USA involved in the original version of the UN, the League of Nations. So the fruit is rotten from the beginning.)

      Being the daughter of Indian immigrants, what did you expect of Nikki Haley? Plus the fact she said she was “not a fan” of yours during the Presidential Campaign, even though she, as governor of South Carolina, begrudgingly voted for you anyway since she said she “did not like either candidate.” I guess she thought you were “the lesser of two evils.” “Kiss her GOODBYE,” POTUS Trump!

  14. I agree with the President. The UN is corrupt to the bone. We should run from them as fast as we can.
    As for Haley, I am surprised the President put her in the position since they locked horns awhile back. Of course she wants to continue with the refugees, otherwise she loses her spotlight and that slows down her final goal.
