Trump to Pull US From UN Migration Compact

US pulls out of global compact on migration

"The New York Declaration contains numerous provisions that are inconsistent with United States immigration and refugee polices and the Trump Administration's immigration principles", she said in a written statement tweeted by the USA mission to the UN.

"The New York Declaration contains numerous provisions that are inconsistent with United States 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.

Under Mr Trump and his "America First" policies, the United States has withdrawn from several global commitments made under the administration of president Barack Obama, including the Paris climate deal.

The U.S. has announced it will be leaving the United Nations' Global Compact for Migration due to concerns it undermines U.S. sovereignty.

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley addresses a U.N. Security Council meeting about the ongoing violence in Myanmar, against Rohingya Muslims on September 28, 2017 in New York City. She believed the USA could influence the global negotiations on migration if it participated in the Mexico meeting, according to the magazine, but she was "ultimately overruled by the president". These commitments are known as the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants.

The decision to pull out of the compact comes as a number of countries are preparing to meet in Mexico on Monday for a global conference on migration.

The US decision to withdraw will delight Trump's "America first" political base, but will do little to improve his standing in developing countries. Trump has vowed to erect a border wall between the USA and Mexico, ramp up arrests of illegal immigrants and slow down legal immigration into the U.S.

Trump, who has championed the pursuit of a "foreign policy based on American interests", has threatened to quit a number of other global accords, including NATO, NAFTA and the Iran nuclear deal.

She explained the motives behind the move, saying that such domestic policy matters as migration decisions "must always be made by Americans and Americans alone".

While announcing the USA decision to pull out from the landmark initiative, Haley still praised what she framed as Washington's "long-standing moral leadership" in providing support to migrants all over the world, promising that its "generosity will continue".

"The president risks isolating the US for the sake of his own fans - and his own ego", the op-ed said.
