New York, April 6, 2018 - We have submitted our edits to the Revision 1 of the GCM.  I would like to make some overall points.

Consistent with statements made by several member states, we support adding language that makes it clear that member states should increase or expand regular pathways for migration. This should be a central goal of the Compact, which has the goal of promoting safe, orderly, and regular migration.  If origin countries have an obligation to accept their nationals, then destination nations have an obligation to increase legal avenues for migration, as they benefit from the labor of migrants.  Regularization programs should be part of this effort, as they can be tailored to long-stayers and other migrants in vulnerable situations in destination countries and provide these countries economic growth, social integration, and national security.

Nueva York, 6 de abril de 2018 - Hemos enviado nuestras modificaciones a la Revisión 1 del GCM. Nos gustaría hacer algunos puntos generales.

De acuerdo con las declaraciones hechas por varios estados miembros, apoyamos que se agregue un lenguaje que aclare que los estados miembros deberían aumentar o expandir las vías regulares para la migración. Este debería ser un objetivo central del Pacto, que tiene el objetivo de promover una migración segura, ordenada y regular. Si los países de origen tienen la obligación de aceptar a sus nacionales, entonces las naciones de destino tienen la obligación de aumentar las vías legales para la migración, ya que se benefician del trabajo de los migrantes. Los programas de regularización deben ser parte de este esfuerzo, ya que pueden adaptarse a los que permanecen mucho tiempo en el país y a otros migrantes en situaciones de vulnerabilidad en los países de destino y proporcionan a estos países crecimiento económico, integración social y seguridad nacional.
