Biden Admin Officially BLAMES The Weather For The Border Crisis

Written By BlabberBuzz | Friday, 22 October 2021 16:45

The Biden administration is "officially recognizing and reporting" on the "linkage" between climate change and migration after the U.S. experienced the highest number of border detentions in a single year since 1986.

Border Patrol arrests soared over 1.7 million during the 2021 fiscal year, which ended in September.

Officials rolled out a number of government analyses aimed at tackling climate change, which President Biden has warned will be the "greatest threat" to America’s national security in the coming years.

"It is definitely a security issue," an official confirmed.

The analyses fulfill requirements of Biden’s Jan. 27 executive order on tackling climate change – as well as his Feb. 29 executive order to rebuild and enhance programs to resettle refugees and get ready for the "impact of climate change on migration."

"These analyses will serve as a foundation for our critical work on climate and security moving forward," the officials announced.

The Department of Homeland Security is expected to roll out its "strategic framework" to tackle climate change, which would focus on "empowering individuals and communities to develop climate resilience;" "building readiness to respond to increases in climate-driven emergencies;" "incorporating climate science as a strategy for policy programs and budgets;" investing in a "sustainable and resilient" DHS; and "ensuring the DHS workforce is "informed by climate change."

Officials noted the DHS analysis and assessment marked "the first time the U.S. government is officially recognizing and reporting on the linkage between climate change and migration."

"The report identifies migration as an important form of adaptation to the effects of climate change," an official stated, adding that the administration described migration as a "purely negative coping mechanism."

The administration's goals have been "to ensure that migration, for any reason, is done in a safe, orderly and human pathway," an official said.

Officials also said the DHS analysis called for the development of humanitarian assistance programs to "help address the underlying causes of forced migration" and "displacement in the face of insecurity." Officials revealed it will also address how "individual human security can decrease the likelihood of migration."

"It is critical to approach these efforts in a way that acknowledges that, in almost all cases, climate change is not the sole driver of migration," the official said. "The U.S. has a compelling national interest in strengthening global protections for individuals and groups displaced by the impacts of climate change."

The official added that the administration will be working to identify ways to apply "existing protection framework" in the context of "climate-related displacement" to identify "gaps" where the United States could forge "new legal pathways to protection" for migrants impacted by climate change.

"Climate change will increasingly exacerbate a number of risks to U.S. national security interests," the official said, noting that climate change can contribute to "increased geopolitical tension" as countries "compete in the ensuing energy transition."

The rollout comes just weeks before President Biden and key Cabinet officials are expected to participate in the United Nations climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland, on Nov. 1 and 2.
