For example, in 2017 a “voluntary contribution of €250 000 was made to the Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations for International Migration,” the Federal Government announced in response to a request by AFD MP Udo Hemmelgarn.
The background to the request is a report by the Federal Government on cooperation with the United Nations, in which Berlin prides itself on having played an active role in the establishment of the UN Migration Compact and the UN Refugee Pact.
Germany promoted the design of the two pacts “politically, in terms of content, personnel and finances”, according to the paper.
At the request of Hemmelgarn, about how onerous the financial and human resources had been that Germany has provided for the preparation of the two agreements, the government replied that the Federal Republic had for years been making voluntary contributions to international structures dealing with migration and refugees.
“Including the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary – General for International Migration, Louise Arbor, and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Filippo Grandi, through their respective mandates in the development of the Global Compact on Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration or the Global Compact for Refugees.”
Former Canadian Supreme Court Justice Arbour’s anti-family legacy includes being the only one among Canada’s nine radical Supreme Court Justices to insist on total criminalisation of all disciplining of children, and a leading example of such an unaccountable UN bureaucrat.
Speaking about the controversial proposal to have an International Criminal Court to prosecute what the UN sees as “human rights abuses”, Arbour insisted that the ICC “would have universal jurisdiction [and] all states would be required to co-operate. It would have coercive powers that would bind states to produce documents and evidence [and] it would be armed with the ability to get evidence it needs.”
She told the UN news site this week that the exodus from the Global Compact reflected “very poorly on those who participated in negotiations . . . it’s very disappointing to see that kind of reversal so shortly after a text was agreed upon”.
Hanne Beirens, acting director of the Migration Policy Institute Europe think-tank expressed concern that their globalist project would face too much opposition. “Now we threaten to go down a road where people can pretend this unilateral approach is not only feasible, but desirable,” she said. “But a containment policy of managing borders will only last so long until it falters.”
UN bureaucrats steering the efforts to achieve a consensus on global migration, essentially want open-borders. Arbour, who spoke at on December 4, at a preparatory conference held in Mexico to “take stock” of the Global Compact, condemned “pejorative talk of ‘illegal immigrants.’”
She added that the “Global Compact for migration is an opportunity to reorient the often-toxic narrative against migrants towards a more accurate narrative on migration that recognizes its overwhelmingly positive impact”.
