Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro rejects global migration pact

Brazil’s far-right President Jair Bolsonaro reaffirmed his rejection of a global migration pact, saying decisions about who was able to come into his country need to be “sovereign.”

His comments, posted in a series of messages on his Twitter account, reinforced Bolsonaro’s declaration before he took office last week that he was going to pull Brazil out of the migration compact that was endorsed by the UN General Assembly in December.
