If you have been displaced by “climate change” don’t worry be happy, since the friendly people of the United States will let you in and immediately grant you legal status.
Senator Brian Schatz’s (D-HI) filed an amendment for the immigration bill Wednesday that would allow stateless people in the U.S. to seek conditional lawful status if their nations have been made uninhabitable by climate change. Schatz explained:
“The amendment I am proposing is quite simple. If enacted, the Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretary of State, may designate individuals or a group of individuals displaced permanently by climate change as stateless persons.
Again, let me be clear about what this amendment does. It simply recognizes that climate change, like war, is one of the most significant contributors to homelessness in the world. And like with states torn apart and made uninhabitable by war, we have an obligation not to deport people back to a country made uninhabitable by sea level rise and other extreme environmental changes that render these states desolate. It does not grant any individual or group of individuals outside the United States with any new status or avenue for seeking asylum in the United States.”
This is just ridiculous and is one more reason why the Immigration Reform Bill needs to be stopped. It is just getting out of hand with all the idiotic amendments. Why not stick to the 2007 comprehensive immigration reform package backed by President George W. Bush?
