US - Opted Out

US politics for the past year for immigration

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/dec/21/us-immigration-policy-2018-travel-ban-migrant-caravan

 

Even as those living in the US unlawfully remain targets, the administration has sought to redefine what legal immigration looks like, too, slowing or halting those seeking to come to the country for a job offer, through their relationship to a citizen, or to find a home as a refugee or asylee.

 

US and other countries bail on UN aggrement

 

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/2018/12/10/world/europe/un-migration-deal-morocco.amp.html

 

More than 60,000 migrants have died in hazardous journeys while trying to reach wealthier countries, Mr. Guterres said. “This is a source of collective shame,” he added.

 

Under Prime Minister Viktor Orban, a fiercely anti-immigrant leader, Hungary has dismissed the compact as a “pro-migration document.” Austria, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia have also rejected the compact, as have Australia and Israel.

 

Note that this article talks only opinions and almost no facts about what the UN pact does.
