Protection of Migrants in 2011

United States views on international law (based on the document “Digest of U.S. Practice in International Law”): On November 15, 2011, the United States joined consensus when the Third Committee adopted a resolution on the protection of migrants. After the Committee adopted the resolution, a U.S. delegation member delivered a statement that explained the U.S. position on the resolution, including U.S. concerns about it. The statement reiterated some of the points the U.S. delegation made during the Committee's consultations on the draft resolution and many of the points the United States had made in previous years concerning the annual resolutions on the protection of migrants. The statement is available at (internet link) see this world legal encyclopedia in relation with the year 2008 at 338-39; World Encyclopedia of Law 2009 at 242; World Encyclopedia of Law 2010 at 284. The General Assembly adopted the resolution without a vote on December 19, 2011. U.N. Doc. A/RES/66/172.
