The Paris Agreement: Threat to American Sovereignty

The United States decided that rights of invaders do not supersede the rights of American citizens, and therefore notified the United Nations that it will no longer take part in the global compact on migration, saying it undermines the nation’s sovereignty.

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.

The US has been a part of the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants since it was formed last year. The declaration aims to ensure the rights of migrants, help them resettle and provide them with access to education and jobs.

It calls for the negotiation of a global compact on migration, which is expected to be adopted next year. The US said the pact contains provisions that are inconsistent with the nation’s immigration policies.

Get the US Out of the UN

Excerpts from 20/20: A Clear Vision for America:

International politics, like all politics, is a struggle for power. - Hans J. Morgenthau, Author, Politics Among Nations

Iran and North Korea are treated with as much formal respect as the United States and South Korea.

The American public is now ready to move in a different direction. Membership in the United Nations does not serve the best interest of the nation and the cost of membership is misused on worthless programs that do little or no good for the people they purport to help. It is definitely time for the United States to get out of the United Nations and the United Nations to get out of the United States.”

Do you think our citizens can accept a big departure from something they have grown used to for more than sixty years? Genie asked. Do you think the United States would be better off as a country if it didn’t belong to the United Nations?

Of course, they will when they learn the facts, Tom said.

The Global Compact on Migration is Bad for America

The Trump administration stopped participating in talks on a proposed United Nations agreement to improve ways of handling global flows of migrants and refugees, describing it as a subversion of American sovereignty. The decision was announced in a statement by the United States Mission to the United Nations, surprising migrant-rights advocates who called it shortsighted and counterproductive.

Many said the decision appeared to reinforce what they called an atmosphere of renewed American isolationism and exceptionalism at the United Nations in the first year of the Trump White House. Trump administration officials said the decision was not an American repudiation of cooperation with other countries but a rightful defense of the government’s power to determine who can enter the United States.

While we will continue to engage on a number of fronts at the United Nations, in this case, we simply cannot in good faith support a process that could undermine the sovereign right of the United States to enforce our immigration laws and secure our borders,” Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson said in a statement on Sunday.

The United States Mission said in its statement that it had informed Secretary General António Guterres that;

The United States has been part of the talks since they began in April, the outcome of a political declaration in New York by all 193 members of the United Nations last year in favor of protecting the rights of migrants and refugees by assuring their safe resettlement and access to employment and education.

The Obama administration was a strong advocate of the declaration, and Mr. Guterres has said he considers the agreement a major goal for 2018.

Nikki R. Haley, said in the statement announcing the withdrawal that the declaration contained;

Numerous provisions that are inconsistent with U.S. immigration and refugee policies and the Trump administration’s immigration principles.

Ms. Haley, a child of Indian immigrants, emphasized in the statement that "America is proud of our immigrant heritage and our longstanding moral leadership in providing support to migrant and refugee populations across the globe."

Our decisions on immigration policies must always be made by Americans and Americans alone.

This decision is the second major topic of a United Nations agreement to be renounced by the Trump administration in 2017. Six months ago, it announced American withdrawal from the Paris Climate accord to combat global warming.

Finally, an author who brings you solutions, instead of problems.

Americans have lost faith in their overreaching federal government. “We the People” don’t need to be overregulated or have their taxes misspent. Americans are victims of a crumbling economy, high prices and stagnant wages. They view government as bloated and politicians as corrupt.

They do not trust the leadership at any level. They see politicians of both parties as self-centered narcissists whose only objective is re-election. The author is like you, with one principal difference and 20 reasons for optimism. His “Vision” of America is “clear.” It is a vision of the Constitution and America the way it could be, the way it should be. The author’s eyesight is twenty-twenty.
