The US mission to the United Nations said in a statement on Saturday that the declaration "contains numerous provisions that are inconsistent with US immigration and refugee policies and the Trump administration's immigration principles".
But late on Saturday, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said the declaration's "approach is simply not compatible with US sovereignty" and that the US will instead define its own migration plan.
But our decisions on immigrant policies should be done only by the Americans.
The declaration called for negotiations on a Global Compact for Migration, aimed at protecting the rights of refugees and migrants and helping them resettle.
"The US Mission to the United Nations informed the UN Secretary-General that the United States is ending its participation in the Global Compact on Migration", the US said in its statement on Saturday.

Kevin Appleby, the worldwide migration policy director at the Scalabrini worldwide Migration Network, a New York-based advocacy group, said the Trump administration was "more interested in appeasing a small minority of Americans than working with the world on a pressing global issue".
"As a result, President Donald Trump determined that the United States would end its participation in the compact process".
Under Trump, the US has also withdrawn from many global commitments, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, the Paris climate agreement and UNESCO, the U.N.'s culture and education agency.
