UPDATE: More information about the deliberations leading up to the decision to pull out can be found here. It is a must-read article at Breitbart by Neil Munro. The incomparable Ann Corcoran also weighed in.
The Trump administration has pulled America out of the United Nations global compact on migration citing American Sovereignty.
Ambassador Nikki Haley, U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations, issued the following statement:
“America is proud of our immigrant heritage and our long-standing moral leadership in providing support to migrant and refugee populations across the globe. No country has done more than the United States, and our generosity will continue. But our decisions on immigration policies must always be made by Americans and Americans alone. We 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 U.S. sovereignty.”
“In explaining its withdrawal Saturday, the US said the pact contains provisions that are inconsistent with the nation’s immigration policies.
While the US is proud of its leadership on migration and refugee issues, the global approach is not compatible with the nation’s sovereignty, according to Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN.
Haley said Trump made the decision, and emphasized that Americans should determine their own policies on immigration.
“Our decisions on immigration policies must always be made by Americans and Americans alone,” she said. “We will decide how best to control our borders and who will be allowed to enter our country.”
The United Nations global compact on migration was adopted in September, 2016.

In response to the news, Editor Trevor Loudon stated, “No nation can survive without the ability to control her own borders. This is a very positive step for America. It is great to see President Trump taking the reigns on this issue.”

Actually it would behoove the United States to get rid of the UN off our soil, tear down the building and replace it with a memorial that celebrates the wonder that America really is.
Also very seriously consider withdrawing from the U.S. or at the very least refuse to surrender our sovereignty to nations whose political and economic ideologies are inimical to the best interests of the citizens of the U.S.
As for the current state of our state with, recently, traitors at the highest levels infecting our government and society((many of which are still here). I think the great Roman orator said it so well,
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious.
But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at
the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries
his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those
within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through
all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.
For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents
familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and
unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he
infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.
A murderer is less to fear.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero
And further I say Naught.
UN peeps not happy.
This is one of the most responsible thing our President has done so far. Letting foreign nations decide how we run our country is insane. We see what has happened in Germany, in Sweden, and other countries where refugees have flooded their countries and overwhelmed the welfare system and put the very lives of their citizens in peril. We cannot let that happen in the United States of America.
