Sanders: ‘I Would Be Positively Disposed to’ Expanding Asylum to Include Climate Refugees

Bernie Sander’s latest proposal is even worse than open borders. He wants to add a new class to refugee status, climate refugees.

It’s nonsense since under current US law, climate refugees would not be eligible for asylum. It would make the entire continent of Africa eligible to migrate to the United States as well as Central and South America. What makes this so bad is that global warming is only about redistribution of wealth and a means of controlling the population.

Even if man made global warming wasn’t a complete farce, the United States cannot solve the problem unilaterally.

During an MSNBC climate change forum on Thursday, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) stated that he believes he “would be positively disposed to” expanding asylum categories to include people who are pushed out of their homes due to climate change.

Moderator Chris Hayes asked, “Would you favor expanding the asylum categories, which are enumerated, right, to include a category for people that are specifically climate — pushed out by climate?”

Sanders responded, “I think that is absolutely something that we have to look at, and I think I would be positively disposed to that. But it has to exist all over the world. … I mean, it’s not just people in Latin America who would gravitate to the United States. It is people all over the world. And it means that we have to deal with the crises in these countries right now so that people can possibly stay there, and we have to welcome people all over the world.”
