Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš later confirmed the country’s UN migration pact vote. Babiš posted on Twitter that the Czech Republic kept its promise and voted against the plan. We stay true to our strategy against illegal migration and we will not accept a single migrant, he added.
According to AP, there were less countries in favor of the Pact now than in Marrakesh, where it was preliminarily approved by the signing of 164 members. On Wednesday, it was approved by an overwhelming majority, despite the US, Hungary, Israel, Poland and the Czech Republic opposing it.
The non-binding agreement is supposed to ensure secure and orderly legal migration. The talks about a global migration pact had started as a result of the migration crisis in Europe, which was the largest since the Second World War and arouse nationalistic tendencies.

A non-binding pact is a manipulation
The UN Migration Pact can simply become another threat to a free and wealthy world, it doesn’t matter whether the Pact is binding or not, said the Vice-President of CEVRO Institute and former Czech Ambassador to Israel Tomáš Pojar. Progressivists are trying to reach a global system of redistribution of people — little by little, step by step.
The Migration Pact helps illegal migrants
The recently approved Migration Pact is written in naive language and comes from a time when it was repeated that the wave of migrants heading to Europe were people fleeing war and oppression. It looks as if it was written by a union organization of migrants.
