Trump defends America’s sovereignty

[…] The Trump administration has decided to withdraw from participation in the United Nations Global Compact on Migration, representing another significant departure from the global governance policies of the Obama administration. In September 2016, during the waning days of the Obama administration, the United States had joined with the other member states of the UN to adopt a “non-binding “political declaration, the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants. They agreed to undertake negotiations towards a consensus on international norms by September 2018 to help guide member states’ immigration policies.

This globalist stance from the UN is one of the many reasons why it should be dismantled. A country’s sovereignty is crucial if it is to remain truly democratic. No one voted for the UN to make decisions on immigration for their country. A country’s democratically elected government is the only group of people with the moral and legal authority to act on a country’s behalf.

U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said in a recent statement, announcing U.S. withdrawal from participation in this globalist compact, that “our decisions on immigration policies must always be made by Americans and Americans alone. The global approach in the New York Declaration is simply not compatible with US sovereignty.”

The New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, Ambassador Haley said, “contains numerous provisions that are inconsistent with U.S. immigration and refugee policies and the Trump Administration’s immigration principles.” The Declaration says, for example, that all migrants are “rights holders,” which are “universal.” It seeks a commitment to “strengthening global governance of migration.” It calls for applying international law to a state’s implementation of its own border control procedures. It calls for migration policies that promote “family reunification” –  a euphemism for chain migration. It stipulates that migrant children should receive “education within a few months of arrival” with budgetary prioritization to facilitate this, all without any consideration of cost, language issues or the impact of such prioritization on the funding of the educational needs of the host country’s own citizens.

Trump is leading the way and like with his stance on Jerusalem hopefully other countries will follow suit and tell the UN that they will not hand over their sovereignty to them and allow them to dictate how they should run their own countries.

Predictably, UN officials and open border advocates have protested the Trump administration’s decision “to disengage from the process[…]

[…] The UN can set in motion a process under which customary international law is created. […] A United Nations Global Compact on Migration may well fall into this category. Only if a member state persistently objects to a particular requirement of customary international law, would it generally be exempt from it. That is why it was imperative for President Trump to make clear when he did that the United States would not participate in the global migration compact and that it considers itself to be bound legally only by its own immigration laws.

If President Trump had not taken such action, and allowed the United States to join in with the other UN member states as Obama had wanted to do, immigration lawyers for plaintiff migrants would have another tool to use in end running this nation’s own immigration statutes. They would take their cases to enforce the migrants’ “universal” rights to sympathetic judges willing to incorporate the global compact’s norms into their judicial decisions. Activist, pro-amnesty judges would have a freer hand to twist the words of the U.S. Constitution to fit the global compact’s “international” norms. […]

[…] An immigrant who has entered a country in violation of the sovereign laws of that country is an “illegal immigrant” under the sovereign laws of that country. Ms. Arbour is seeking to turn this upside down by using the Global Compact on Migration as a normative instrument of customary international law to eliminate the distinction between legal and illegal immigrant status and confer “universal” rights on them that transcend a sovereign country’s own immigration laws.

This would effectively take away a country’s sovereign right to decide who can and cannot cross its borders.

[…] President Trump did the right thing in withdrawing the United States from this latest example of the UN globalists’ efforts to chip away at national sovereignty.
