Anti-America Democrats have devised a sinister plan to take in an additional 50,000 freeloaders per year under the proposed junk science “Climate Change Refugee Act.”
Democrat legislators have drafted a bill to import at least 50,000 “climate refugees” per year despite the damaging impact on Americans’ wages and rents.
The bill is titled the “Climate Displaced Persons Act,” and it offers green cards to “climate-displaced persons … [who] are individuals who have been forcibly displaced by climate change or climate-induced disruptions, such as sea-level rise, glacial outburst floods, desertification or fires … there could be as many as 200 million CDPs by 2050 globally,” said a statement from Velázquez‘s office.
“America will continue to stand tall as a safe haven for freeloader wannabes,” declared Rep. Nydia Velázquez (D-NY), who was born in Puerto Rico and chairs the House Committee on Small Business. She said:
Despite this Administration’s efforts to strip the world’s most vulnerable populations of refuge … this legislation will not only reaffirm our nation’s longstanding role as a home to those fleeing conflict and disasters, but it will also update it to reflect changes to our world brought on by a changing climate.
“The new program would admit a minimum of 50,000 CDPs, beginning with Fiscal Year 2020, allowing CDPs to access resettlement opportunities,” the statement said.
If Velázquez‘s bill becomes law, investors will have an economic incentive to lobby for raising the inflow far above 50,000 per year. The bill would also give progressives a new opportunity to raise their claimed social status by championing foreigners above Americans and would nudge down wages and force Americans to work longer hours to afford decent housing.
The economic damage to Americans caused by mass immigration is shown in Velázquez‘s district in New York, which already has a huge population of low-wage legal migrants and illegal aliens. The migrant population has spiked rents, forcing many Americans to live far from their work and pushing low-wage migrants into illegal apartments.
Wealthy progressives ignore this vast black-market sweatshop economy and its impact on Americans’ wages and rents, in part, because they are the beneficiaries of the cheap labor.
