The Trump administration is withdrawing the U.S. from the United Nations Global Compact on Migration.
In a statement Saturday, U.S. officials said the Obama-era deal was inconsistent with America’s immigration and refugee policies.
UN Ambassador Nikki Haley explained the move, saying the U.S. will decide how to control its border and who will be allowed to enter.
Haley said the U.S. immigration stance must always be made by “Americans and Americans alone.”
