EU Wails Austria’s Exit from UN Migrant Pact Aligned Bloc with Trump, ‘Damaged Us All’

Austria’s decision to leave the UN Migration Compact while holding the European Union’s rotating presidency brought “shame” on the bloc by aligning it with U.S. President Donald Trump, EU forces have angrily proclaimed.

At a debate with Sebastian Kurz in Strasbourg on Tuesday, critics including the European Commission president lined up to slam the Austrian Chancellor’s withdrawal from the agreement, which declares mass migration to be “inevitable, necessary, and desirable”, as the low point of the country’s six-month stint in charge of the presidency.

Jean-Claude Juncker, who has previously claimed the so-called Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration would somehow reduce illegal immigrant flows, said Austria’s refusal to sign was the only stain on an otherwise “really impressive” presidency, denouncing Kurz for sending out “negative signals” about the document.
