Hungary’s foreign minister Péter Szijjártó has condemned the UN Migration Pact for attempting to “legalise illegal immigration,” announcing his country will vote ‘no’ on the agreement in Marrakesh in December. Mr Szijjártó told media on Thursday that “The goal of the UN Global Compact for Migration is to legalise illegal immigration, which is totally unacceptable and violates the sovereignty of member states, including that of Hungary.”“The UN is making the same mistake as the European Union, which wants to base its own migration policy on mandatory resettlement quotas,” he continued. “The UN Compact is more dangerous, however, because it is a global initiative, meaning it will have a greater effect than [European] policy, and represents a risk to the whole world.” Confirming that Hungary will be voting “No” to the Global Compact for Safe and Orderly Migration … [Read more...] about Hungary Attacks UN Migration Compact for Attempting to ‘Legalise Illegal Immigration’

Meagan Flynn, The Washington Post Published 4:26 am PST, Friday, November 16, 2018 Lou Dobbs said it so casually that it sounded like common knowledge. "You know," the Fox Business Network host said on his show Thursday, "millions of illegal immigrants cross our borders, and many of them [were] voting in the past election that's what, just a couple weeks ago, and having an immense impact." Dobbs later asked, "Are we just sitting here, helpless against anyone who wants to cross that border, and to have their way with the American way?" He was chatting with David Bossie, a former deputy campaign manager for President Donald Trump. Since the midterm elections, no evidence has emerged suggesting results were tainted by illegal votes, from illegal immigrants or anyone else. The statement was par for the course for Dobbs, who was bashing immigrants before it was fashionable, citing misleading evidence or none at all. Last month, he invoked the word "invasion" dozens of times … [Read more...] about Lou Dobbs casually makes up story that ‘many’ illegal immigrants voted in midterms and had ‘immense impact’
