Global Compact for Immigration: Bad for Europe
On 10 and 11 December, the leaders of the EU nation will head to Marrakesh, Morocco, to sign the Global Compact for Immigration.
This document, concocted by the globalist, multicultural elite of the United Nations, is an international set of rules to promote “safe, orderly and regular immigration.”
The document makes it very clear what the globalist elite wants to do with the West and its freedoms. It wants to abolish them. Article 33 states that our governments have to promote a “constructive perception” of migration. They are also told to “stop allocation of public funding or material support to media outlets that systematically promote forms of discrimination towards migrants” (art. 33c).
But what is ‘discrimination’ according to the globalist elite? The Global Compact makes this abundantly clear:
- doubting, for example, that migrants “enrich our societies” (art. 12);
- denying that we in the West have a duty to “facilitate safe, orderly and regular migration” (art. 18);
- failing to “provide newly arrived migrants with targeted, gender-responsive, child-sensitive, accessible and comprehensive information and legal guidance on their rights, including access to justice to file complaints about rights violations, as well as on access to basic services” (art. 19d);
- refusing to “ensure that all governmental authorities and private actors charged with administering immigration are trained on non-discrimination” (art. 29g);
- failing to “develop flexible, rights-based and gender-responsive labour mobility schemes for migrants, including fast-track programmes, by providing non-discriminatory visa and permit options” (art. 21d).
Children Rights Abused
Many illegal immigrants entering our countries claim to be underaged minors, even when they are over 18 years old. They do so in order to enjoy the protective rights which civilized countries attribute to children. Our rights are abused, but the Global Compact does not care. It orders governments to acknowledge “that anyone claiming to be a child is treated as such unless otherwise determined through a multi-disciplinary, independent and child-sensitive age assessment” (art. 28d).
Countries are also prohibited to send children back to their home country without first “ensuring that appropriate care and arrangements for children are in place in the country of origin upon return” (art. 37g). Given that Third World countries hardly have any facilities for children, once a child has been smuggled to the West, it will become almost impossible to send it back. And once a child is in, the entire family is allowed to come over under the rules of family reunification. The Compact wants to make this even easier, telling governments that they have to “facilitate access to procedures for family reunification for migrants” (art. 21i)
Human Traffickers Will Be Pleased
According to ENF, countries willing to accept immigrants have a right to determine in their own parliaments the conditions and criteria to do so.
That is not the opinion of the Global Compact. It states very clearly that allowing safe, orderly and regular immigration is an international and “collective” duty, which, if necessary, must be guaranteed through “the provision of financial and technical assistance” to other countries (art. 39a). To this end, “concerted efforts at global, regional, national and local levels, including a coherent United Nations system” are required (art. 40).
Collective expulsion of illegal immigrants is forbidden in the Global Compact (art. 24a). The criminal prosecution of migrants who have used the service of people smugglers is also forbidden (art. 25). According to the Compact, migrants who have used the services of people traffickers have to be permitted to remain in their country of destination (art. 26h).
Obviously, this will only enhance the business of the people smugglers and lead to even more uncontrolled immigration into our countries.
What About Our Rights?
The Compact also undermines the right of sovereign nations to guard and protect their own borders. “Border management policies have to respect the human rights of all migrants, regardless of their migration status” (art. 27)
While the Compact cares a lot about the rights of immigrants, it is totally insensitive to the rights of the inhabitants of receiving countries to safeguard their own identity, welfare and prosperity.
Why would the closing or managing of our borders be a violation of the human rights of migrants, as the Compact assumes?
It is simply untrue that restricting access to all immigrants is automatically a violation of the principle of non-discrimination and that sanctioning “irregular entry or stay” would be a violation of international law, as the Compact implies (art. 27f).
Why should European taxpayers be obliged to provide “access to free legal advice and assistance of a qualified and independent lawyer” to “all migrants in countries of transit and destination that may be subject to detention” (art. 29d)?
Why should detention of illegal immigrants not be allowed to be used as a deterrent, as the Compact states (art 29c)? It is the duty of every democratic government to fight illegality.
Give Them Money
Instead of deterring illegal immigrants, the Compact wants us to welcome them and shower them with all the basic benefits (read: money) of our European welfare systems.
It states that we have to “ensure that all migrants, regardless of their migration status, can exercise their human rights through safe access to basic services” (art. 31). And, in case one should have missed it, it explicitly adds that this also applies to “irregular migrants” (art. 31b).
Our European governments are even obliged to “establish and strengthen holistic and easily accessible service points at local level, that are migrant inclusive,” in order to “facilitate safe access” to these basis services (art. 31c).
They also have to establish “National Human Rights Institutions, to monitor complaints about situations in which migrants’ access to basic services is denied or hindered” (art. 31d).
All this will only result in making our countries even more attractive to immigrants.
Ideology of Multiculturalism
The Global Compact makes no secret of its real goal: to use immigration as a tool to enforce the ideology of multiculturalism on the West – in other words: “to promote acceptance of diversity” (art. 32a).
To this end, even our children will be used: Schools have to be “welcoming” to migrant children and offer “integration activities in order to promote respect for diversity and inclusion” (art. 32i).
The overall aim is to inform the public in the countries of migrant destination – that is us – of “the positive contributions of safe, orderly and regular migration” (art. 33f). The Global Compact goes very far in this respect. It even wants to interfere in our democratic electoral procedures by “engaging migrants to detect and prevent incidences of intolerance against migrants, including in the context of electoral campaigns” (art. 33g).
Even More Immigration
Although the Global Compact for Immigration does not have a legally binding character (art. 7), its importance cannot be neglected. Governments that are going to sign the agreement next month in Marrakesh commit themselves politically to its goals. Moreover, it has become common practice among activist judges in many countries, including at the European Court of Justice, to treat political declarations devoid of a legally binding character as part of the law that the Court has a mission to enforce.
Fortunately, a number of Western governments seem to realize how dangerous the Global Compact is for their own people, as it opens the door to even more immigration towards the West.
The governments of the United States, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Austria, Croatia, Slovakia, Bulgaria and Poland have already declared that they will not be signing the Marrakesh document. What are the governments of the other EU member states waiting for?
