And here is the President of Mexico at the epicenter of the tremors shaking the ground across the world with its push for ‘globalism’, the United Nations, reinforcing its mantra by telling them, and us, that “We must place migrants together with their rights, dignity and wellbeing in the center of the global dialogue.”
Once the left’s goal of ‘no global borders’ is achieved and we have no countries or states left with their own national identities, own cultures, own economies, what will be next? I suspect we will start hear things like… “Space,…to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.”
To which then we might add: “To tax where no man has taxed before.”
Well, there might be at least one positive outcome of globalism for some in the United States…Nobody will have to stand for a national anthem.
Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto on Monday defended the need to protect migrants and noted that “history shows that there are no barriers that can stop the movement of people.”
“There are no natural ones or artificial ones. For every river there has always been a bridge, for every obstacle there has always been a road,” said Peña Nieto in his address before the U.N. summit on refugees and migrants.
The Mexican president defended the positive role played by migrants in the cultures of the countries to which they travel and emphasized that the international community must improve their situation.
“We have a pending commitment to them that we all must assume, because migration represents not only the past and the present of mankind, but also its future,” he insisted.
Peña Nieto focused his remarks on migration and emphasized the positive characteristics of population movements, which over the course of history have spread traditions, ideas, knowledge, better technology and values around the world.
“Migrants symbolize the effort that has been made to move humanity forward,” he said, stressing that “movement is an essential part of being human.”
Peña Nieto noted that his country is “the origin, transit point, destination and returning point of people” and that it is “proudly mestizo, multicultural and diverse,” the result of multiple migrations over the course of history.
“We Mexicans firmly believe that mixing is the future and fate of humanity,” he said.
For Peña Nieto, the “historic” meeting on refugees and migrants being held on Monday at the U.N. proves that “mindsets” are changing.
“We must place migrants together with their rights, dignity and wellbeing in the center of the global dialogue,” he said.
With an eye toward negotiating the global pacts on migrants and refugees that will take place in the coming years, Peña Nieto said that a focus on human rights must be kept in mind that establishes obligations for countries along with a shared responsibility among countries of origin, transit and destination.
In addition, the Mexican leader said that those documents must recognize the contributions of migrants, contribute to eradicating intolerance, prejudices and racism and strengthen the ability of states to take care of those who arrive at their borders, among other things.
He said that Mexico had offered to host an international preparatory meeting in 2017 and “will continue working so that migrants are recognized as agents of change and development.”
