Seems like there is lots of work left for the drafting committee..

Right now, participants are lining up to give their feedback on the draft of the Final PGA statement on migration, development and human rights to be submitted to the GFMD.

It is a long line while time is running short. Some people feel that is too Mexico-centric, while others are very passionate about the inclusion of  a statement that condemns “mass deportations by the yankees” and  militarization of the Mexican-US border.

There are also very broad statements regarding the definition of who is a migrant.

So, even if the PGA is about to end soon, the drafting committee has some work ahead of it (not unusual in fora like this one). I just wonder how they will put the revised version to vote?
