Democrats Move to Create New Protected Class – Climate Refugees. The Goal Is Increased Mass Immigration

Democrats, led by Representative Lydia Velázquez, have unveiled a plan, The Climate Displaced Person’s Act of 2019, to admit a minimum of 50,000 ‘environmental migrants’ every year beginning in 2020, which would almost double our yearly intake of refugees. However, the lawmakers predict a significantly higher number since they cite data from International Organization for Migration (IOM) that suggests by 2050 there could be as many as 200 million individuals who might be included in their new protected class! US law does not recognize climate refugees, as global warming has yet to be proven. The bill unmasks the Democrat lawmakers’ true agenda – to open the door to as many immigrants as they possibly can.

Despite a record number of illegal alien apprehensions at the southern border in fiscal year 2019, Democrats have unveiled a plan to admit a minimum of 50,000 “environmental migrants” every year beginning in 2020. In short, the proposal being pushed by Rep. Lydia Velázquez (D-N.Y.) is the ugly stepchild of the Dream Act and the New Green Deal.

“America will continue to stand tall as a safe haven for immigrants,” said Velázquez of the Climate Displaced Person’s Act of 2019, which would create a new protected status for so-called climate displaced persons (CDPs) that would be separate from existing U.S. refugee admissions programs.

She also claims the bill is a reaffirmation of the nation’s “longstanding role as a home to those fleeing conflict and disasters,” but also updates our role “to reflect changes to our world brought on by a changing climate.”

Velázquez’s measure comes almost a month after Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) introduced a similarly ill-conceived bill to kill two special interest birds – mass amnesty advocates and radical environmentalists – with one stone.

What is most notable about this proposal is that it sets the minimum number of admittances at 50,000, which is a significant number alone in historical terms. Between fiscal years 2008 to 2017, the average number of refugees admitted into the U.S. was 67,100. If the U.S. took in the minimum number of so-called climate refugees, it would almost double our annual intake.

But, the lawmakers predict a significantly higher number since they cite data from International Organization for Migration (IOM) that suggests by 2050 there could be as many as 200 million individuals who might be included in their new protected class.

There are numerous flaws with the proposal, including the fact that more than 1.2 million Americans were forced from their homes as a result of natural disasters in 2017 alone. Before we open our borders, shouldn’t lawmakers concentrate on resettling citizens from FEMA trailers into new homes?

Second, why isn’t Temporary Protected Status (TPS) sufficient to handle those who are unable to return to their homelands due to natural disasters? There are presently 417,000 foreign nationals already in the U.S. under TPS, which is itself reason not to create a new program since it is slowly morphing into a quasi-amnesty for many.

Third, neither U.S. law nor international law even recognize so-called climate refugees, climate migrants or CDPs. The United Nations even concedes that the term climate refugee “does not exist in international law.”

All of the Democrat run cities in the US are as bad as any 3rd world country. In Pelosi’s San Francisco, they are even seeing a resurgence of diseases that had been eradicated in the Dark Ages, due to the filth, garbage and human feces on the sidewalks and streets, along with 1,000’s of used, bloody syringes lying around. For once, the Democrats should concentrate on taking care of their own districts and their constituents, and stop all the virtue signaling about Refugees and giving them a protected class status. We know and hopefully their constituents have finally figured out… Read more »
