The United Nations General Assembly has adopted a global framework to “…step up and shoulder our responsibilities toward refugees,” explained UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed. Winning an almost unanimous vote, the compact includes 23 objectives for managing migration better at local, national,  regional, and global levels. The US and Hungary were the only nations to vote against the commitment; Libya, Eritrea, and the Dominican Republic abstained from the vote.
