One Crisis is Enhancing Another…Climate Meets Border

The number of crises hitting the United States at the moment is significant. However, we’ll focus on two of them since they go hand-in-hand at the moment: climate change and the southern border.

Climate change is a crisis but there’s not much that we can do about it, especially when China and India (two of the largest countries to blame for carbon pollution) aren’t willing to do their part. Now, the southern border can absolutely be controlled. So, let’s take a look at what is going on at the moment.

Liberals are trying to say that the climate crisis is what is killing migrants trying to cross the U.S. border.

Man, they’ll say and do anything so that they can focus on the climate, won’t they?

It seems that they are focusing on the wrong issue. If border security was stronger, migrants wouldn’t be killed from the harsh weather found in the Sonoran Desert.

Crossing into the U.S. from Mexico is dangerous…especially when doing it involves crossing the Sonoran Desert when temperatures are easily into three digits. Undocumented migrants (read: illegal immigrants) are dying of dehydration and organ failure.

The Guardian reports the issue as “Migrants and asylum seekers trying to enter the US are often forced to traverse the harsh environment of the Sonoran Desert in order to avoid border patrols and fortified crossing points.”

Whoa, let’s slow that down and point out a few issues. First of all, most of the people trying to get into the U.S. don’t qualify for asylum. They’re seeking out something that they’ll never qualify for. Second of all, they aren’t “forced” to do any of this. They’re doing it so that they can avoid the patrols and crossing points that are a legal component for entering the U.S.

So, at this point, the liberals want to claim that we have to do something about climate change because the border crisis is really bad. We have to focus on climate change so that people can stop dying.

Hmmm, shouldn’t we be putting emphasis on a crisis that can actually be controlled? If we were to secure the border, people would stop risking their lives to enter the U.S. illegally. They would stop dying in the middle of the desert and they would stop breaking immigration laws.

New research shows that those attempting to cross the border are “disproportionately dying in a harsh stretch of desert that is becoming deadlier due to the climate crisis.” The report also goes on to say that in the next three decades, due to the world heating up due to human activity, migrants will need to carry 34% more water with them so that they can survive the trek.

At no point has the liberals considered that the migrants shouldn’t be worrying so much about the amount of water to bring with them but rather that they shouldn’t be trying to enter the U.S. illegally at all.

A researcher at the University of Idaho, Hallie Walker, explains that the extreme environments is “going to become even more extreme and push those levels to even further beyond what humans can actually sustain.”

Wait, so you mean that the human body isn’t meant to sustain walking across the desert for several days with little to no water? Shocking…

Seriously, the liberal arguments are really starting to become laughable.

Meanwhile, Kamala Harris is okay with watching hundreds of people die in the Sonoran Desert because she refuses to address the problem. She’s content with taking her time on the “root causes” as people are subjected to temperatures reaching 118 degrees.

The research has certainly highlighted two issues: climate change and migration into the U.S. What the liberals haven’t figured out is that only one can be taken care of immediately. Close down the border and watch as people stop risking their lives by trying to cross the deadly desert (that has always been deadly).
