According to Marcel de Graaff of the Europe of Nations and Freedom group, the Global Compact on Migration will be used to criminalize criticism of migration. He notes that the media may run into trouble if they criticize migration. This makes it more difficult to question the migration policy of governments, according to the MEP.
“On the 10th and 11th of December there will be an international congress in Marrakesh, Morocco, with regard to this Global Compact on Migration. And the participating countries are set to sign this agreement. And although this joint agreement isn’t binding, it’s still meant to be the legal framework on which the participating countries commit themselves to build new legislation. And one basic element of this new agreement is the extension of the definition of hate speech.
The agreement wants to criminalize migration speech. Criticism of migration will become a criminal offense, and media outlets, and that also concerns you, that give room to criticism of migration, can be shut down. The Compact for Migration is legalization of mass migration. It’s declaring migration as a human right. So, in fact, it will become impossible to criticize Ms Merkel’s “welcome migrants” politics without being at risk to be jailed for hate speech.”
