A new attempt to impose globalism unfolded in Marrakech, Morocco late last year, under the guise of helping migrants. Most of the 193 countries in the United Nations convened in order to create new international law to require every participating country to accept vast hordes of foreign migrants, and be subjected to this new form of globalism.
Any other president, Republican or Democrat, would probably welcome and join this undermining of national sovereignty. But President Trump lead the way in denouncing this virulent strain of globalism.
Called the “Global Compact for Safe, Orderly, and Regular Migration,” the Marrakech meeting would have prevented the American people from deciding immigration policy for ourselves. Trump posted multiple reasons why the United States and every country should reject this bad idea.
“We believe the Compact and the process that led to its adoption, including the New York Declaration, represent an effort by the United Nations to advance global governance at the expense of the sovereign right of States to manage their immigration systems in accordance with their national laws, policies, and interests.”
That sounds like something Phyllis Schlafly might have written during her lifelong opposition to treaties that undermine American interests. But the above statement was issued by none other than President Trump.
He continued: “Decisions about how to secure its borders, and whom to admit for legal residency or to grant citizenship, are among the most important sovereign decisions a State can make, and are not subject to negotiation, or review” by international courts and documents.
“Migration should not be governed by an international body unaccountable to our own citizens,” President Trump declared. He cited the Monroe Doctrine for the principle that we do not accept interference of foreign nations. In 1823, President James Monroe promulgated that famous doctrine against European nations intermeddling in the affairs of the Americas. It was based on the observation that the Old and New Worlds have different political systems and it is “dangerous to our peace and safety” to allow the systems to mix.
Likewise, it is dangerous to try to mix our American liberty and prosperity with migrants who may hate us, or at least not respect our culture and values.
