Austria may follow the US and Hungary in backing out of a United Nations agreement on migration, citing concerns about its sovereignty and potential restrictions on its freedom to act.
“We view some of the points in this agreement very critically. We will therefore do everything to maintain the sovereignty of our country and ensure that we as the Republic of Austria can decide for ourselves on migration issues,” said Chancellor Sebastian Kurz.
“It cannot … be that any formulations are adopted that could perhaps or possibly be interpreted to mean that migration can be a human right. That can and must not be the case,” added vice chancellor and Freedom Party leader Heinz-Christian Strache.
Hopefully, this new mainstream rebellion will continue to grow in order to challenge the unelected left-wing activists who dominate the halls of the UN and other global institutions.
Austria said it was examining the extent to which the agreement is binding. Some describe the compact, which aims to set standards for safe and orderly migration, as politically rather than legally binding. However, these international standards, once established, tend to expand their scope and power as time goes on. It’s better to defeat the deal in its infancy before it morphs into a life of its own.
Both Kurz and PM Andrej Babis of the Czech Republic will be under heavy pressure from the establishment to sign the deal. However, both campaigned and were elected with strong pledges to their people to oppose mass migration. The Freedom Party (FPO) is solid and will have a positive influence on Kurz but Othmar Karas and the “old OVP elite” are negative influences and will do all that they can to urge Kurz to embrace the position of Berlin and Brussels.
Babis and Kurz must also realize that opposing the EU on mass migration will be futile unless they also rise-up to oppose the UN on migration.
The UN and EU act as “sister” institutions and will bond together to push their radical, multicult manifesto of open-borders and mass migration on all. Angela Merkel and EU Minister of Migration Dimitris Avramopoulos are ardent supporters of this UN monstrosity.
The V4 Report believes the agreement’s final draft is deeply flawed and vague, with the potential to “handcuff” an independent nation from properly defending its borders.
For instance, with an eye on Australia, it wants countries to agree to use “detention only as a measure of last resort” and advises nations to “review and revise” laws and policies to ensure that decisions to detain are “based on law, are proportionate, have a legitimate purpose, and are taken on an individual basis” and should not be used “as a deterrent”.
In other words, the UN does not want any “deterrents” to migration. Yet, one cannot realistically stop illegal migration, deport migrants or effectively seal its borders without a policy of detainment, which is exactly why the open-border NGOs and wealthy philanthropists are pushing this UN Compact. The UN should be honest…they want to commit Europe and others to mass migration, especially from Muslim regions.
In our opinion, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and other CEE nation states must also reject the UN deal, which could dangerously imperil their sovereignty and freedom to make their own decisions on how best to protect their citizens and country.
“Safe, orderly and regular migration” sounds very familiar. It seems as if the EU Ministers and certain international philanthropists have been working closely with the UN “stakeholders”.
The UN pact, due to be adopted in December, should be unconditionally rejected.
