Παγκόσμιο Σύμφωνο Για Λαθρομετανάστευση: Τα Ηνωμένα Έθνη Θα Αποφασίζουν Ποιοί Πηγαίνουν Πού Και Πόσους Θα Παίρνει Η Χώρα Σου ~ Global Compact For Migration: The UN Will Decide Who Goes Where And How Many Your Country Takes…! (Photo)
Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton has declared the Australian government will not be signing up to a major United Nations agreement on migration “in its current form” despite the fact Australia helped negotiate the deal.
The comments come after The Australianreported earlier this week that the Turnbull government had left open the door to withdrawing from the Global Compact for Migration that so far only the US and Hungary have failed to sign.
While the US dropped out in December, the government of Hungary’s anti-immigration nationalist Prime Minister Viktor Orban announced last week the country would also quit the pact.
Asked on 2GB by Alan Jones if Australia was going to sign up to the agreement, Mr Dutton said: “not in its current form. We’ve been very clear about that”.
“And we’re not going to surrender our sovereignty. I’m not going to allow unelected bodies to dictate to us, to the Australian people …They do not want us to go soft on borders.”
UN member states, led by Mexico and Switzerland and including Australia, helped negotiate the Global Compact for Migration and the final text suggests it could pressure Canberra to revise its immigration-detention policies and immigration laws.
The agreement’s final draft, released this month, says countries should agree to “review and revise” laws that sanction irregular entry and should not use immigration detention “as a deterrent”.
Mr Dutton acknowledged Australia had been involved in negotiating the compact but said Australia would not sign if “it’s not in our national interests”.
“We’re happy to negotiate in good faith but we’ve been very clear we’re not going to sign any document that’s not in our national interest and it’s not in our national interest to sign our border protection policy over to the UN,” the Home Affairs Minister said.
Despite taking a strong position on other international agreements, Labor has so far refused to take a position on whether Australia should sign the agreement in the lead-up to this weekend’s by-elections.
But the Greens are furious over any suggestion that Australia would not sign up to the deal.
The global compact for migration will be the first, intergovernmentally negotiated agreement, prepared under the auspices of the United Nations, to cover all dimensions of international migration in a holistic and comprehensive manner.
In the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, adopted in September 2016, the General Assembly decided to develop a global compact for safe, orderly and regular migration. The process to develop this global compact for migration started in April 2017. The General Assembly will then hold an intergovernmental conference on international migration in 2018 with a view to adopting the global compact.
The global compact is a significant opportunity to improve the governance on migration, to address the challenges associated with today’s migration, and to strengthen the contribution of migrants and migration to sustainable development.
However, this Global Compact for Migration raises serious questions about a White Genocide project…, since the flow of non-white migrants and refugees will be directed exclusively and only into countries with a white population…!
