United States withdraws from UN Global Compact on Migration

"The global approach in the New York Declaration is simply not compatible with USA sovereignty".

"I regret [the] United States decision to disengage from [the] process leading to a United Nations global compact on migration", Miroslav Lajcak tweeted after the decision was announced.

A spokesperson for the president of the U.N. General Assembly says the USA role in the compact process is critical and that migration's a global issue that needs global response.

The president of the U.N. General Assembly expressed disappointment and regret at Trump's decision, saying in a statement that no single country can "manage global migration on its own".

The U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, opposed the withdrawal, according to Foreign Policy.

Protester interrupts Roy Moore event: 'Are all the girls lying?'
They're the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender [individuals] who want to change our culture. On Wednesday he was sent to an Alabama church to pose as a Roy Moore supporter.

The US participation in the Compact process began in 2016, following the Obama Administration's decision to join the UN's New York Declaration on migration.

"To that end, member states agreed at the highest level to launch a process leading to the adoption of a global compact in 2018", said Brenden Varma, the spokesman for Lajcak, in a statement. "As such, it has the experience and expertise to help ensure that this process leads to a successful outcome".

The declaration says member states will work to protect migrants, attempt to integrate migrants, combat xenophobia and strengthen global cooperation on migration - among other issues.

The US has been a part of the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants since it was formed a year ago.

Negotiations on the GCM will be based on the New York Declaration, a document adopted by the United Nations in 2016 that commits to "strengthening global governance" and contains a number of policy goals that are inconsistent with US law and policy. We will decide how best to control our borders and who will be allowed to enter our country.

It's nearly time for this year's Supermoon!
So a winter super-moon looks bigger and brighter than a summer - but it's often harder for anyone to enjoy because of bad weather. When an average apogee occurs, the moon is furthest from the earth at a distance stretching to roughly 252,000 miles.

The announcement comes ahead of a scheduled three-day conference on the Global Compact on December 4-6 in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Outlining the main objectives of the future compact, the IOM cited the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015, that calls on countries to work together to "facilitate safe, orderly and regular migration".

The US has already pulled out of the United Nations climate change treaty and Unesco, the cultural heritage body, accusing the latter's leadership of an anti-Israeli bias.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres regretted the USA decision, his spokesman said on Sunday, but expressed hope the United States might re-engage in the talks.

It's not clear how many times he's played golf during those visits as the White House has not released that information. It is unclear, however, whether Trump golfs each day he visits a course or how many rounds he plays when he does.
