On Thursday, Kamala Harris claimed that climate change was the root cause of migration from Central American countries, a claim we’ve been hearing for the past month and a reason for Democratic leaders to continue allowing illegal immigrants into the country.
The Northern Triangle Foundation Leaders were in attendance. Harris claimed that because of climate change, the citizens of Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala who cross the southern border through Mexico face a failing agricultural sector, food shortages, food insecurity, and severe poverty.

Harris cautioned the audience that she wanted to give them hope.
“We’re looking at a lot of storm damage and drought as a result of the severe climate,” Harris said.
“Once again, we’re looking at climate resiliency, followed by concerns about a lack of economic opportunity,” she said.
According to the Biden administration, the area was ravaged by Hurricanes Eta and Iota in 2020, a climate event that continues to drive climate refugees to the United States. Biden signed an executive order in February directing the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs to draft a report on climate change’s effect on mass migration.
“We have to offer people a sense of hope, a sense of hope that support is on the way, a sense of hope that things will get better,” she says.
The problem, according to Harris, “will not be solved overnight.”
She said, “If it was simple, it would have been solved a long time ago.”
I don’t think this would go down well with the American people. With the influx of illegal refugees, many neighbourhoods are being ripped apart and shredded. Even though the United States has given their countries billions to stem the tide of poverty and starvation, most can’t read or write properly, lack of education sets them back, and children aren’t properly cared for in their home countries.
