The United States has withdrawn from a United Nations pact to commit to protect and preserve rights of migrants and refugees.

Donald Trump's administration said the agreement, known as the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, was "inconsistent" with its policies.

In September 2016, the 193 members of the UN General Assembly unanimously adopted a set of commitments that pledged to uphold the rights of refugees, help them resettle and ensure they have access to education and jobs.

A statement from the US read: "The New York Declaration contains numerous provisions that are inconsistent with US immigration and refugee policies and the Trump Administration's immigration principles.

"As a result, President Trump determined that the United States would end its participation in the Compact process that aims to reach international consensus at the UN in 2018."

The American Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said the country would continue its "generosity" in supporting migrants and refugees around the world, but that "our decisions on immigration policies must always be made by Americans and Americans alone."

If I was queen of the world....the UN would get a notice to evict all in 30 days then implode the building and build a  appt building.  Send the UN to Brussels.

It is time to boot the UN and cease funding the lunacy of anti American countries.
