Congress Considers Measure Addressing “Climate Refugee Crisis”

Rep. Nydia Velázquez offers bill that prioritizes foreigners over her constituents

Excerpt:

The “Extinction Rebellion” death cult is scary, but what may be even more terrifying is a proposal Congress is considering.

Our U.S. House of Representatives is reviewing a new bill to protect “climate refugees.”

The Climate Displaced Persons Act, written by Rep. Nydia Velázquez (D-N.Y.), would create a new federal program specifically for refugees displaced by climate change. If enacted into law, the U.S. would take in at least 50,000 climate refugees each year, beginning in 2020.

What exactly is a “climate refugee?”

The Institute for Economics and Peace, an Australian think tank, recently estimated that in 2017 alone, 18 million people — 61.5 percent of global displacements — were forced to move due to natural disasters. (Those natural disasters are not universally caused by climate change, but global warming is predicted to cause more frequent and intense disasters.) And while projections vary, sources agree that those numbers are going to get a whole lot higher. That same report noted that nearly 1 billion people currently live in areas of “very high” or “high” climate exposure, which could result in millions of people displaced by climate change in the future. A 2018 World Bank report estimated that by 2050, there would be 143 million climate change-driven migrants from the regions of Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa, and southeast Asia alone.

But, if we’re talking about legally designated “climate refugees,” there’s a much different number being thrown around: zero.

The designation of refugee has very specific meaning under international agreements.
A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee his or her country because of persecution, war or violence. A refugee has a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group. Most likely, they cannot return home or are afraid to do so. War and ethnic, tribal and religious violence are leading causes of refugees fleeing their countries.

And, because both the Border Wall and the Mexican troops have stopped the caravan, Velázquez is trying to create a work-around to bring in as many people as the Democrats need. After all, “climate change” can mean anything the activists wish it to mean.

Despite Australian cattle feed virtue signaling, the immigration policy is based on merit not who happens to show up on their island continent with a sob story.

Looking at the definition of refugee, most rightwing people, and especially MAGA hat wearing people, need to be granted protected refugee status from leftists for them to live without fear in any larger city.

This by the way will be the only legislation they pass other than another CR in the remainder of this term. Oh and an impeachment of our President.

And yet, I've got a nice shiny new 25c piece that says those same constituents will re-elect here. The English language is wholly insufficient to express my disdain of the voters of districts like NY-7 who would elect a person like NV. SHE, and others like Hank Johnson, Shiela Jackson Lee, and at least a dozen others, are PRECISELY why the founders gave us a Republic rather than a Democracy.

"A Republic, if you can keep it".
- Ben Franklin


Well, it WAS, but we COULDN'T.
