House Democrats are set to introduce the first major piece of legislation to establish protections for migrants displaced by climate change, ramping up a push for a long-overdue framework for how the United States should respond to a crisis already unfolding on its shores.
The bill, called the Climate Displaced Persons Act, would create a federal program separate from the existing refugee program to take in a minimum of 50,000 climate migrants starting next year.
“We have to bring in more africans to stop the climate from changing!” said one House democrat.
“The other day it was terribly hot, but if we imported another 100,000 climate change refugees from Africa then things will be better” said House Majority Whip.
“I duns Know how Bringin in AFricans stops Climate change but I’m all for it!” Said a black senator.
