As a growing number of people worldwide lean towards rejecting mass migration and multiculturalism, globalist billionaire and preeminent financier of radical progressive causes George Soros teamed up with New York City’s Mayor Bill de Blasio to defend and promote both on Monday and Tuesday.
As part of Concordia’s — a “nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that builds meaningful partnerships for positive social impact” — Annual Summit, timed to coincide with the U.N. General Assembly, Soros and de Blasio are hosting a “Global Mayors Summit” on “migration and refugee policy and practice.”
“The Global Mayors Summit invites municipal leaders, civil society, and international stakeholders to discuss how cities overcome obstacles to implementing policies that promote migrant and refugee integration, rights protection, and empowerment,” the Concordia website states.
The summit comes as U.N. members work on a new “Global Compact on Refugees and a Global Compact on Migrants,” which Soros clearly seeks to influence.
An article posted on Soros’ Open Society Foundations website on Monday lauds the efforts of Ted Terry, mayor of Clarkston, Georgia — which he calls “the Ellis Island of the South” — who will be featured at the Mayors Summit, and states that the Summit itself is “an effort to make sure that these positive voices from the ground are heard by national policymakers.”
“And, at a time when the shadows of xenophobia have darkened in both the United States and Europe, the mayors will have a positive story to tell — about how their new citizens have enriched their cities — economically, culturally, and socially,” the article states.
“Cities are in the vanguard when it comes to receiving and integrating new migrants, both from their own countries and abroad. So as national governments set out to draw up a new Global Compact on Refugees and a Global Compact on Migrants, it is important that the lessons learned by those on the ground, shaped by real experiences rather than theory or dogma, be heard,” it claims.
But the Summit also comes in the wake of a survey that makes it clear that the global public at large is becoming increasingly opposed to Soros’ vision of an open society. An Ipsos poll released last week revealed that a sizable proportion of people throughout the world are directly opposed to Soros’ vision of a borderless, nationless world.
The extensive survey — which polled people in Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, United States, Serbia, and Peru — found that 42 percent of people globally say that immigration has had a negative impact on their country. Only 21 percent said it had a positive impact.
Nearly half of those polled — 48 percent — agreed with the statement, “There are too many immigrants in our country.” Once again, only 21 percent disagreed. A total of 44 percent also agreed with the statement that “Immigration is causing my country to change in ways that I don’t like.” Only 24 percent disagreed.
The survey suggests that Soros, who has dedicated his life to encouraging multiculturalism and mass migration, is failing in his mission, and explains why he is pushing hard for immigration as the world’s leaders descend on New York City.
