Hail Ban Ki-moon!

This is a shoutout for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

On Tuesday, Ban called on both rich and poor countries to act urgently on pressing problems related to migration. The UN's top official told some 600 delegates at an international migration conference in Brussels to address growing issues such abuse and discrimation of migrants. He also asked richer nations--particularly, Japan, the U.S. and member-nations of the European Union--to create policies that are friendlier to migration, especially of people trying to escape poverty in Africa and Asia.

Ban has just become migration's biggest advocate. I'd vote him as President anywhere anytime.

The Brussels conference is the first in informal conferences designed to discuss the migration phenomenon. The next conference is planned next year, right here in Manila.
