Speaking in Lisbon at the Vision Europe Summit, António Guterres said European nations have no right to control their borders and that they must instead take in floods of the world’s poorest people.
“The idea that management of migration is a matter of national sovereignty is extremely limited. The truth is that in the meantime, the real controllers of international mobility are the smugglers and criminal organisations. It must be recognised that migration is inevitable and will not stop”, the socialist told the crowd of policymakers and researchers.
Regarding priorities for the UN, when he takes over from South Korean Ban Ki-moon as Secretary-General, Guterres said he already has “several items to put on the discussion table to drive positive developments” with regards to the goal of making Europe accept more migrants.
This will take place in the form of “develop[ing] legal migration opportunities as the only way to fight against criminal networks”, he hinted.
Guterres insisted that every European Union (EU) nation must be forced to “share the burden” of mass migration.
Despite having used the word “burden” to describe giving residence to large numbers of aliens, the 67-year-old went on to declare: “We must convince [Europeans] that migration is inevitable and that it is the multiethnic societies which are multicultural and multireligious who are building wealth.”
The UN’s next head acknowledged he is “not convinced that it will be easy, given the state of [public] opinion”. Calling for politicians to put “tolerance” and “reason” at the heart of their decision making, Portugal’s former prime minister urged lawmakers to prioritise “values” over respecting voters’ wishes.
This is the organization that Obama loves.....The U.S. should think twice about almost anything the U.N. says or wants their member nations to do..."Open borders"...Sounds like Hillary!
I am all for this as long as Guterres personally PAYS for them!
If he pays for them they will still become your neighbors and eventually your controllers....are you sure that's what you want?
The GOOD news is that this will force the EU to totally dissolve and then each European Country has a right to their own country and each can stop it individually. Perhaps it will be in Europe's and America's best interest to resign from the UN? Probably seeing that the communists run it. I hope Trump makes the UN pay for holding its headquarters in the USA.
Yes, Dictators Unite. Let them eat cake.
Bibi said it best: The U.N. started as a moral force, has become a moral farce.
This is just one more reason to get the friggin' UN out of our country and us out of the USELESS NATIONS ,when they say to ignore the voters then they are calling for a dictatorship. Tell to pack their crap up and get the hell. I bet if we had a reforendum vote to get them out of our country they would be gone. All they do is cost us money and undermine our way of life GET THEM THE HELL OUT and turn their building into a homeless shelter
Get out of the UN. They are totally worthless.
Hey, I'll vote for that !
since we're paying for most of the UN, how about we GET our conservative people in all the top offices...if not...they should pack up & go home!!!
I agree Hilary
It is made up of a large majority of dictatorial autocrats that are seeking to protect their own regimes. I think we should get out and start a League of True Constitutional Republics. That would eliminate a lot of false ideologies that pretend to be legitimate, including ones that claim to be protected by multiculturalism as religions.
