Videos and photos of mass migration into the United States on the Southern border have been flooding social media for almost six months now. The images are gaining intensity. This week photos of a massive group of illegal immigrants went viral, and talk of stopping the invasion is heard from some corners of the country. Still, Americans are lacking an understanding of why we seem to be under threat of an invasion and what we can do about it.
“Remember former President Barack Obama signed the same global immigration pact that we saw destroy Europe with mass immigration. That is what Joe Biden has returned us to and now we are seeing the consequences,” Oscar El Blue, a media activist, told me.
“140 countries signed this compact including Obama and this is the reason behind the trampoline we see now with these huge groups coming into the US. Mexico even changed our Constitution to embrace this compact and this compact is also what is behind the African migration into Europe that has led to radical riots and destruction of those countries. This is the real Globalist movement,” El Blue told me.
“We, the Heads of State and Government and High Representatives, meeting in Morocco on 10 and 11
December 2018, reaffirming the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants and determined to
make an important contribution to enhanced cooperation on international migration in all its dimensions,
have adopted this Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration: ”
El Blue talked to Will Johnson, founder of Unite America First, about what he was seeing at the border as a result of unrestricted migration.
What the fight is all about:
TRUMP GOT US OUT OF OBAMA’S GLOBAL DISASTER
Remember, President Donald J. Trump ended the Compact. According to this press release:
“Today, the U.S. Mission to the United Nations informed the UN Secretary-General that the United States is ending its participation in the Global Compact on Migration.
U.S. participation in the Compact process began in 2016, following the Obama Administration’s decision to join the UN’s New York Declaration on migration. Unfortunately, the New York Declaration contains numerous provisions that are inconsistent with U.S. immigration policy 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.”
OBAMA IS BACK- THAT IS THE TRUTH
I spoke with El Blue, a media activist, a native of Mexico who reports on border issues for Border Network News about the return to Obama’s policies. He explained what was behind this massive movement of people into the United States.
El Blue reported on Twitter with footage of a mass migration of people, where law enforcement can not stop anyone, and I asked him why this was happening.

El Blue told me there is no law enforcement because of the United Nations agreement to assist the refugees and not harm them. He videoed exactly that.
According to Wikipedia, the compact is described as: “The Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM) is an intergovernmentally negotiated agreement, prepared under the auspices of the United Nations, that describes itself as covering “all dimensions of international migration in a holistic and comprehensive manner”
WHO IS BEHIND IT?
“The UN Global Compacts on Refugees and Migration”
The number of refugees and displaced persons world-wide has reached historic levels, with 70.8 million people having fled armed conflict and persecution. According to the United Nations, the number of refugees has topped 25.9 million, with the conflict in Syria alone having forced 6.7 million civilians to seek safety abroad. While hundreds of thousands of refugees and migrants have sought to cross to Europe via the deadly Central Mediterranean route, the vast majority of refugees – 85 percent – remain in developing or middle-income countries, with least developed countries hosting one in three refugees.
But armed conflict is not the only driver of displacement. Gang violence, grave human rights violations, disasters brought on by natural hazards and the adverse impacts of climate change are increasingly forcing people from their homes.
In response to this global crisis and to address future challenges, UN member states made a unanimous commitment in 2016 to the historic New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, in which member states pledged to create both a Global Compact on Refugees (GCR) and a Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM) by the end of 2018. The GCR and GCM are to outline shared responsibilities to protect those who have been forced to flee their homes and guarantee support for countries helping these refugee and migrant populations.
Refugees International has been actively engaged in the processes to develop these two crucial documents. Below are policy briefs, blogs, and media interviews in which RI staff convey their recommendations for crafting effective and strong compact agreements.
