US withdraws from UN migrant plan The U.S. officials told the United Nations it would withdraw from a global agreement on the treatment of migrants because it is "inconsistent" with U.S. immigration policies.

The U.S. Mission to the United Nations made the notification Saturday, two days before the start of a global conference on migration in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

The United States signed the non-binding New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants in 2016 under President Barack Obama. Member states signing the pact pledged to uphold the rights of refugees, assist in resettlement, and provide access to education and jobs.

"The New York Declaration contains numerous provisions that are inconsistent with U.S. immigration and refugee policies and the Trump administration's immigration principles," a statement from the U.S. mission said. "As a result, President [Donald] Trump determined that the United States would end its participation in the Compact process that aims to reach international consensus at the U.N. in 2018."
