Trump administration schedules U.S. withdrawal from UN migration pact

[Ed. – Another good call.  The U.S. should manage immigration for our own nation, full stop.  Nothing meaningful to our interests is achieved by trying to comply with mandates imposed by outside entities.]

The Trump Administration announced plans to pull the U.S. out of a United Nations pact on the handling of migrant and refugee situations. The announcement came from the U.S. mission to the United Nations. U.S. officials said the program is “inconsistent” with American policies. …

Officials stated that the New York Declaration, a non-binding political declaration unanimously approved in a non-binding resolution in September 2016, “contains numerous provisions that are inconsistent with U.S. immigration and refugee policies and the Trump Administration’s immigration principles.”

The American pullout from the pact is scheduled for the end of 2018, AFP reported.
