Another win for the America First crowd! Under Barack Obama, America was steadily becoming a slave to globalism.
Pacts like the Paris Climate Accord required the U.S. to submit to rules crafted by outsiders. Every America would be forced to follow rules we had no say in. The accord was not brought to the America people. Congress wasn’t allowed to vote.
It was tyranny, plain and simple.
But that was only one move by Obama to force globalism onto America. He pushed the country to agree to ridiculous rules from the U.N. Again, not rules decided by Congress or the American people. Rules crafted by bureaucrats from other countries.
Of course, the rules dictated America’s policy on immigration.

The United States notified the United Nations that it will no longer take part in the global compact on migration, saying it undermines the nation’s sovereignty.
The US has been a part of the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants since it was formed last year. The declaration aims to ensure the rights of migrants, help them resettle and provide them with access to education and jobs.
It calls for the negotiation of a global compact on migration, which is expected to be adopted next year.
“While we will continue to engage on a number of fronts at the United Nations,” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in a statement Sunday, “in this case, we simply cannot in good faith support a process that could undermine the sovereign right of the United States to enforce our immigration laws and secure our borders.”
The US supports “international cooperation on migration issues,” the statement added, “but it is the primary responsibility of sovereign states to help ensure that migration is safe, orderly, and legal.”
In explaining its withdrawal Saturday, the US said the pact contains provisions that are inconsistent with the nation’s immigration policies.
While the US is proud of its leadership on migration and refugee issues, the global approach is not compatible with the nation’s sovereignty, according to Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN.
CNN and other liberal outlets make this seem like a drastic measure. Keep in mind the “compact” was formed last year. It was hardly a pillar of the United Nations.
This compact was a scheme to force the United States and other nations to accept refugees and other migrants. It would force us to face the crisis Europe is enduring. Millions of strangers would flood our country, all because George Soros or some other globalist says so.
Our migrant policy should be decided by our leaders, plain and simple. Those leaders—members of Congress—answer to the American people. If we don’t like the laws they write, we can vote them out. We can’t do that with members of the U.N. We might not even know who is writing these rules!
It was necessary to pull the U.S. from this compact. Our policies must reflect our values and concerns. We cannot allow rogue nations, corrupt bureaucrats, and foreign interests to control our country.
