“When do you see the United Nations solving problems? They don’t. They cause problems. So, if it lives up to the potential, it’s a great thing. And if it doesn’t, it’s a waste of time and money.” – United States President Donald J. Trump

Under the Trump administration, the U.S. is leading the charge in pushing back against the U.N.’s migration agenda — a move that is picking up support from other countries and giving political cover to those seeking to join them.
The Trump administration announced last December that it would withdraw from the U.N.’s Global Migration Compact — due to be adopted by an intergovernmental conference in Morocco next month. Then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson argued last year that the compact could undermine America’s right to enforce its immigration laws and secure its borders.
“The United States supports international cooperation on migration issues, but it is the primary responsibility of sovereign states to help ensure that migration is safe, orderly, and legal,” Tillerson said.
The U.S. was the first country to withdraw, but it was soon followed by a stream of other countries pulling out of the non-binding compact, officially called the “Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.” Hungary, Poland, Austria, Australia and Israel have all since announced they will not sign the accord, citing concerns that it will limit the ability of countries to set and enforce their own immigration policies.
“We are committed to guarding our borders against illegal migrants,” Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said this week. “This is what we have done and this is what we will continue to do.”
“We believe that the Compact is inconsistent with our well-established policies and not in Australia’s interest,” Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said in a statement this week. “The Compact 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.”
U.N. General Assembly President Maria Espinosa on Wednesday defended the compact and said it also gave countries flexibility to shape their own migration policies.
“The Compact allows enormous flexibility for countries to use the parts of the compact that can be adapted to their sovereign decisions and existing legal frameworks…it is a cooperation instrument,” she said at a press conference this week.
The accord consists of 23 objectives for managing migration at “local, national, regional and global levels.” But many of those aims are vague, including objectives like: “enhance availability and flexibility of pathways for regular migration” and “address and reduce vulnerabilities in migration.”
James Jay Carafano, a national security analyst at the Heritage Foundation, told Fox News that the U.S. is right to be skeptical of global compacts that may seek to establish broad global norms, like a right to migrate, in part because they can encourage further dangerous migration and international instability.
“I think it’s actually a courageous act of American leadership where America is not just looking out for itself for but the world as a whole,” he said.
Carafano pointed to the recent migrant caravan moving through Honduras and Guatemala, and through Mexico toward the U.S., which the Trump administration has been eager to block from entering the U.S., and also forced migrations out of countries such as Syria and Libya.
“Now people want to create a right for anyone to have a right to global migration, which could create all kinds of problems,” he said.
Just as back in Washington, President Trump is calling for action against the incoming migrant caravan, at the U.N, the U.S. is expressing concern about the direction of a separate global compact — this time on refugees, over fears it too could infringe on a government’s sovereignty to control its own borders.
“The United States believes it is the primary responsibility of sovereign states to ensure that migration is managed consistent with each nation’s domestic laws and policies, and its international obligations,” a U.S. official told Fox News. “A government’s first duty is to its citizens – to serve their needs, to ensure their safety, to preserve their rights, and to defend their values.”
Isn’t it great to have a President stands up for America’s rights as a Sovereign Nation against the tyranny of the United Nations?
While Barack Hussein Obama held the Office of the President of the United States of America, he was bound and determined to make America into just another nation, assigning American Exceptionalism to the trash heap of history. His pure ignorance to America’s place in the world was overwhelming. Obama’s bowing and scraping, like a leader of a country who occupied a subservient position to nations filled with barbarians, who would slit every American’s throat, if given the chance, was a stunning example of this naiveté and downright ignorance.
After terrorists murdered four Americans at the US Embassy Compound in Benghazi, Libya, Obama stepped in front of the General Assembly of United Nations, like a little school boy, repeating the lie which he and his staff concocted, that it was some little unwatched Youtube Video that caused the Muslims’ actions over there.
There is a reason that the Headquarters of the United Nations is in New York City in New York State in the United States of America.
We are not their servants. In fact, the United Nations would not exist if not for America.
Obama’s acquiescence to the United Nations emboldened that body to believe that THEY were our, forgive the term, “Masters”.
The United States of America is a Sovereign Nation, created by the blood, sweat, and tears of men and women, who rise above those who do not believe in American Exceptionalism and our Sovereignty as a Free Nation, in stature, honor, integrity, and courage to the point where those who are the enemies of our country, Foreign and DOMESTIC, are not even fit enough to tie their boots.
We are an “independent state”, completely independent and self-governing. We bow to no other country on God’s green Earth. We are beholden to no other nation. America stands on its own, with our own set of laws, the most important of which is The Constitution of the United States, which guarantees us, as a Free People, the right to determine our own destiny, both individually, and, as a free people.
We are Americans.
We man up and we handle our own problems.
These illegal migrants are being purposefully sent to “radically change” America, just as the Muslim Migration into Europe has overtaken several countries’ cultures.
Only by standing up to the thug nations represented at the UN, like President Trump and Ambassador Haley have, will America be respected, and left alone, as the Sovereign Nation that we are.
Instead of bowing and scraping before the United Nations as his predecessor did, President Trump is leading by example and other nations are finding the courage to stand up for their own sovereignty against the U.N., as well.
America is no nation’s doormat, nor should we be their piggy bank.
It is a breath of fresh air to have a President who is putting AMERICA FIRST.
Until He Comes,
