US Pulls Out of UN Global Pact on Migration

The administration of President Donald Trump has withdrawn the United States from a United Nations pact to improve the handling of migrant and refugee situations, deeming it “inconsistent” with its policies, the US mission to the global body announced Saturday.
“Today, the US mission to the United Nations informed the UN secretary general that the United States is ending its participation in the Global Compact on Migration,” the Americans said in a statement, AFP reported.
US Ambassador Nikki Haley said the country would continue its “generosity” in supporting migrants and refugees around the world, but that “our decisions on immigration policies must always be made by Americans and Americans alone.”
Under Trump and his “America First” policies, the United States has withdrawn from several global commitments made under the administration of former president Barack Obama, including the Paris climate deal. More recently, America pulled out of the Paris-based culture and education body, UNESCO, accusing it of “anti-Israel bias.”
