UK government’s adoption of UN migration pact “all but violates” its pledge to cut immigration

“A leading immigration think tank has said that the United Kingdom’s adoption of the UN’s migration pact “all but violates” the government’s pledge to cut immigration.”

Alp Mehmet, Vice Chairman of Migration Watch UK, stated:

No government serious about reducing migration should be committing to it. As for our government, by signing up to the Compact, they are all but violating a manifesto promise to reduce immigration substantially.

Mehmet is correct. A major survey found that the UK public voted for Brexit because of the EU’s reckless immigration policy, so given May’s surrender, the Brexit vote has been rendered null and void. Back in February, May betrayed Brits and surrendered to the European Union’s open-door immigration demands for years after Brexit.

The UK is in such a deplorable state now that it refused to offer asylum to one of the most needy refugees in the world, Asia Bibi, a Christian victim of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws. Why? because the May government feared “unrest” from Muslims, who have rioted by the thousands in Pakistan, baying for Asia Bibi and her family’s blood.

“UK Commitment to UN Migration Pact ‘All But Violates’ Govt Immigration Pledge: Think Tank,” by Victoria Friedman, Breitbart, December 12, 2018:

A leading immigration think tank has said that the United Kingdom’s adoption of the UN’s migration pact “all but violates” the government’s pledge to cut immigration.

On Monday, the UK and 163 other nations committed themselves to the United Nations’ Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration — the first attempt at the “global governance” and institutionalisation of migration.

The UK’s delegate at the UN conference in Marrakesh, Morocco, the Foreign Office’s minister of state Alistair Burt heralded the compact, claiming it “tackles” illegal immigration.

Migration Watch UK fired back at the assertion, saying, “This is the wrong move. The word ‘control’ does not appear in the final text of the Compact.”

“The Government committed, 3 times in election manifestos, to reduce immigration by a lot (a goal supported by 73% of the public according to one poll).

“How is signing a Compact which binds the UK into ‘enhanc[ing] the availability… of [migration] pathways’ compatible with that?”

Alp Mehmet, Vice Chairman of Migration Watch UK, told Breitbart London, “This Compact is misguided and one that the UK should not have signed.

“No government serious about reducing migration should be committing to it. As for our government, by signing up to the Compact, they are all but violating a manifesto promise to reduce immigration substantially.”…..
