Plan in EU to Jail Citizens for "Criticism of Immigration Policies"

Immigration as a Human Right?

It's PC gone MAD in the European Union, where criticizing migration could become a criminal offense if a new law goes into effect.

From Express:

MEP Marcel de Graaff has warned EU citizens they could be “jailed” for criticizing migration policies if a new United Nations agreement is acted upon.

“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."

“The compact for migration is legalization of mass migration."

“It is declaring migration as a human right so it will, in effect, become impossible to criticize Mrs Merkel’s welcome migrants politics without being at risk of being jailed for hate speech.”

In 2015 Angela Merkel pushed for an open-door migration policy across the EU. Critics said the move was motivated by Germany’s need to boost its workforce by at least one million.

The document is an "intergovernmentally negotiated agreement, prepared under the auspices of the United Nations, that covers all dimensions of international migration in a holistic and comprehensive manner”.

Austria, Australia, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Israel, Poland, Slovakia and Switzerland have already stated they will not sign the agreement.

One of the “guiding principles” of the document asks for a “whole-of-society approach” to promoting mass migration, including the role of the media.

Governments are asked to “promote independent, objective and quality reporting… and stopping allocation of public funding or material support to media outlets that systematically promote intolerance, xenophobia, racism and other forms of discrimination towards migrants."

WIBC host Tony Katz:

"The agreement wants to criminalize hate speech, and 'hate speech' includes criticism of migration. Is this the society we want? Without freedom of speech, you can't be free; without the ability to say 'no' you can't be free. This is why political correctness is so evil - because it is about limiting free speech."
