criminal for criticizing illegal immigration, sad that people support this, despite history proving that it will only be a disaster.
You are always welcome here, deusvult. Michigan (upper LP and UP) are a lot like Canada...without Trudeau.. :)
Doesn't matter ... it has to pass the UN Security Council, and will be vetoed by the US.
historical precedent + common sense
The US, China, and Russia always use their veto power on the UN Security Council to veto measures they don't agree with.
Common? Sorry, but this does not go before the council from what I can find.
(Hint: Not everything put out by the UN goes before the Security Council.)
I'm willing to bet anything involving criminal measures or immigration will go before the Security Council. I'm also betting that since this would affect national security of EVERY nation, it will go before the Security Council.
So back it up with a source. Your bets mean nothing.
Factually, it is a voluntary and non-binding compact, therefore it needs no approval by the Security Council.
So if it's "voluntary and non-binding", what are your panties in a wad about?
They aren't. I simply asked for a source from you to back up your ignorant statement.
The UN routinely uses "voluntary and non-binding" agreements to bypass approval of larger bodies. Once countries have signed, they are pressured to uphold their agreement by both the UN and the other parties to the agreement, 164 of them in this case.
Several European countries already have laws in place criminalizing opposition to immigration, pressure from the UN and other signatories almost guarantees more countries will now follow suit. Given Trudeau's track record, deusvult's concern is justified.
because when countries sign on to it they are expected to abide by the rule and any moron president or prime minister who signs on will abide by the rules. and secondly it becomes binding
"Non-binding" means even if you sign up, you don't have to abide by it.
So, to be honest, I don't know why any country who agrees with it would sign it - since it's no guarantee that any other country will follow it even if they do sign it. Then again, I don't understand why the UN allows countries with terrible record on human rights to be on the committees allegedly protecting human rights.
perhaps you missed the part where it becomes binding
we do certainly,
Not sure if you were aware, but a separate Refugee Pact was also signed and by even more than signed the Migration Pact (181).
Yup. There's a chart I saw (by the UN, I believe) that shows how many people are in each country and how many it is projected they could absorb. I'm trying to find it for you.
it shouldn't be forced upon people who don't want to support the migrant's how is it my job to take care of them?? my taxes or whatever is for my own country and people.
The un is nothing they can't force anyone to do anything. Glad trump wants to get rid of it.
Not accepting people who need help is bad, but dealing with a horde of people some of which aren't willing to integrate with your society is worse.
