Migration is a movement that has blown up with the evolution of transportation, what would take months to years on boat 4 centuries ago, now would take at most 2 days. However, the current president of the United States, Donald J. Trump has a different plan for immigration in his country. He recently pulled out from the migration pact that was agreed upon with the former president Barack Obama. The migration pact stated that the participating countries would respect the rights of refugees and migrants and help them integrate into society. Trump believes that they should control how they want to treat their immigrants and refugees and plans to keep going with his “America First” policy.

Immigration is currently the only long term reliable source of improving the economy of a country. Ever since the declining birth rate in countries such as Canada, governments have resorted on accepting immigrants to compensate for it. On the other hand, refugees are people who had to run away from a place that they considered could put themselves in danger and everyone should be allowed to run away from a country that gives you that type of feeling. As such, I do not agree with Trump removing the US from the pact agreed upon by Obama in 2016. However, is Trump truly right in removing the US from the deal made with the other 193 members of the UN?
