Donald Trump pulls US out of UN global compact on migration

The US has pulled out of the UN global compact on migration, according to this article from the Guardian. "The Trump administration has pulled out of the United Nations’ ambitious plans to create a more humane global strategy on migration," says the author, "saying involvement in the process interferes with American sovereignty, and runs counter to US immigration policies." The announcement came hours before a scheduled UN global conference on migration in Mexico, the aim of which is to publish a global compact "for safe, orderly and regular migration" in 2018, in time for adoption by the UN general assembly in September.
