Victory! Down Goes The UN Migration Pact! By James Reed
One good thing is that the UN Pact on Migration looks like it is coming unstuck, and at least is over for us for the time, but no doubt the elites will try it again under a new name, a bit down the track, when they think no-one is watching.
“More nations are joining the exodus from the United Nations’ (UN) controversial compact on mass migration, with legal experts now standing up to raise concerns about the drafting of the document and what legal implications signing it might have for countries party to the pact. President Donald Trump was the first to pull out of the UN pact on migration in December 2017, a move which prompted howls of disapproval from both the mainstream media and globalist leaders. Yet several nations from all over the world have outright withdrawn from the compact since initially ratifying it in July, or have signalled their intent to do so, as states gain confidence in opposing fashionable but dangerous deals that are not in their own interests. In comments that cut across the grain of the usual business and practice of the United Nations, President Trump said at the body’s New York headquarters in September: “Migration should not be governed by an international body unaccountable to our own citizens. “Ultimately, the only long-term solution to the migration crisis is to help people build more hopeful futures in their home countries. Make their countries great again.”
I am pleased to report that Australia has also pulled out of the Pact:
“Australia will not be signing up to the UN migration pact, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has said, explaining he was not willing to risk the government’s successes in fighting people trafficking. “The compact would risk encouraging illegal entry and reverse Australia’s hard-won successes in combating the people smuggling trade,” he said in a joint statement with Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton and Foreign Minister Marise Payne.
“We believe that the compact is inconsistent with our well-established policies and not in Australia’s interests,” asserted the ministers, adding that the document “fails to adequately distinguish between people who enter Australia illegally and those who come to Australia the right way, particularly with respect to the provision of welfare and other benefits.”
A bit of good news. Thanks to all of our readers who wrote to the politicians. Give yourself a clap and a pat on the back because you deserve it!
