750 million worldwide want to migrate.
Alarming, especially when one considers the agenda of the UN Migration Compact and the goals of EU Migration Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos.
The UN wants to establish a global blueprint for ‘safe, orderly and regular migration’.
Meanwhile, EU Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos wants to “commit” Europe to mass migration and claims Europeans must accept this mass migration from the third world as the “new norm”.
– The demand for mass migration is obviously there, but now the UN wants to develop the logistics to make it happen by turning illegal migration into legal migration.
However, it will not be Croatians or Czechs migrating to Sub-Saharan Africa or the Middle East.
The desire for relocation increased most between the 2010-2012 and 2015-2017 periods in a number of regions already known for sending migrants, such as sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East and North Africa.
On the other hand, roughly 18 countries attract two-thirds of all potential migrants worldwide.
One in five potential migrants (21%) — or about 158 million adults worldwide — name the U.S. as their desired future residence. Canada, Germany, France, Australia and the United Kingdom each appeal to more than 30 million adults.
* Anyone who thinks that UN ‘declarations’ are just benign recommendations or will not become the basis for future international law has a poor understanding of past ‘declarations’.
For instance, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is not a treaty, so it does not directly create legal obligations for countries. However, it is an expression of the fundamental values which are shared by all members of the international community. And it has had a profound influence on the development of international human rights law.
In 2012, the Strasbourg-based European Court of Human Rights ruled that Italy’s pushback policy on boat migrants coming from Libya breached international law, including the Geneva Convention and the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights”.
Those declarations and documents – and the laws that followed them – defined a person’s rights to seek asylum from persecution in other countries.
** The dynamics are alarming when one looks at the size of Africa compared to the EU. A migrant tsunami has the potential to engulf Europe.
However, the EU and UN are not interested in preserving the culture and way of life of Europe. The UN Migration Manifesto is the altar in which they worship upon.
The nations that already recklessly signed on to the Compact must reconsider. Of course, it can be done. The new leader of Brazil has already announced that they will withdraw from the Compact after they take office in January 2019.
More European nations should follow Brazil’s example before the UN starts delivering migrants to them in an ‘orderly’ way and on a ‘regular’ basis.
