The UN Migration Pact has been out of the news cycle for over a year, leaving the mistaken impression that it has been abandoned in the midst of more pressing issues, such as the Central American caravans, the ludicrous Trump impeachment trial, and now the coronavirus. But the globalist-driven Pact is far from defunct. It was merely put on the back burner. With the coronavirus, it is now back at the worse time possible, under new guidelines, which include “steps that several governments have already taken to swiftly release migrants from detention and to provide access to healthcare, housing and other services regardless of migration status.” Not only does this threaten the security of the nations who implement these recommendations, but it also raises the question of who will pay for these plans, given the state of affairs in a depressed economy?
This is happening while the UN is “already under scrutiny over the supine posture of its health agency, the World Health Organization, towards the Chinese Communist Party,” and now “the UN may now be in for another wave of criticism as it uses the pandemic to push for open borders.” Its push should be vehemently opposed, especially now.
Fortunately, the U.S., Hungary, Austria, Australia, Poland, Israel, , Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Latvia, Italy, Switzerland and Chile have all refused to sign it or otherwise expressed great reservations and refused to commit, while Brazil withdrew.
Many jihadist groups have also seized the current COVID-19 pandemic as an opportunity, creating a “deadly combination” of coronavirus and jihad terror. Al-Qaeda, for example, views the virus as “Allah’s retribution, arguing that the West is immoral and in decline.”
To briefly recap the problems with the Pact:
The UN Migration Pact represents a catastrophic dismantling of key components of democratic institutions by the United Nations, a body that has increasingly allied with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). The Pact — officially named the “Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration” — indicates that it “offers a 360-degree vision of international migration and recognizes that a comprehensive approach is needed to optimize the overall benefits of migration, while addressing risks and challenges for individuals and communities in countries of origin, transit and destination.” It also states that “No country can address the challenges and opportunities of this global phenomenon on its own.”
In effect, it imposes upon the sovereignty of free nations, and it is administered by the OIC-dominated United Nations and by globalists who have relentlessly implemented policy to weaken Western freedoms.
“UN Urges Govts to Release Illegal Migrants, ‘Provide Access to Healthcare, Housing,’” by Jack Montgomery, Breitbart, April 30, 2020:
The United Nations (UN) is urging countries around the world to release illegal migrants from detention in response to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, and highlighted steps towards giving them “access to healthcare, housing, and other services”.
Already under scrutiny over the supine posture of its health agency, the World Health Organization (WHO), towards the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the UN may now be in for another wave of criticism as it uses the pandemic to push for open borders — highlighting states “responsibilities” under the contentious Global Compact for Migration as it does so.
“Yesterday, the United Nations Network on Migration released urgently needed practical recommendations with guidance for States and stakeholders on preventing and responding to COVID-19 in the context of immigration detention,” announced the UN Migration Agency, or International Organization for Migration (IOM), in an official press release.
“[T]he brief highlights steps that several governments have already taken to swiftly release migrants from detention and to provide access to healthcare, housing and other services regardless of migration status,” it continued approvingly.
“The Network’s Working Group on Alternatives to Detention – co-led by UNICEF, UNHCR and the International Detention Coalition – has developed this guidance in partnership amongst UN agencies and civil society… The Network calls on States to introduce a moratorium on the use of immigration detention; to scale up and implement non-custodial community-based alternatives [and] to release all migrants in detention into alternatives,” it added, suggesting that illegal aliens should only be detained as a “last resort”.
