As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Beto Blames Climate Change for Southern Border Crisis

So Beto is going to fight illegal immigration with a carbon tax, I guess.

I mean, and these people think President Trump is insane, and they blame climate change for people surging to the Mexican border. Beto also warns, “wait until some countries in the Western Hemisphere can no longer support human life.”

Seriously? The temperature might go up a couple of degrees and life comes to an end in Guatemala?

According to the Washington Examiner:

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke said climate change is a reason so many Central American migrants arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border.

“There were 400,000 apprehensions at our border with Mexico last year. As you know, many of them were kids – kids who, if they were lucky, showed up with their parents,” O’Rourke, a former Texas congressman who represented El Paso, said at a campaign stop Thursday in Salem, N.H. “But increasingly, we are finding that those who are arriving are farmers from Honduras who are trying to plant what used to grow but does not any longer because they, too, are in historic droughts and cannot feed themselves.

“If you think 400,000 is bad, wait until some countries in the Western Hemisphere can no longer support human life, because that is the direction we are headed,” O’Rourke said.

  1. As usual – there are no words. The insanity is mindboggling. I repeat what I’ve said many times – these people think Donald Trump is over the top????

  2. Right now we are having a drought in Central America. It is just part of the current migration problem but not the biggest factor. The cycle will change and we will have plenty of rain. The Panama Canal is asking the shippers to lighten their vessels due to the shortage.

    Beto ought to put a carbon tax on other countries such as China and India.

    • You are so right about weather cycles: The SW had been wringing our hands worrying over a 5 year drought and then….it rained , it snowed, and did it again.
      AZ snow resorts are still open because the snowpack from last winter was so YUGE, and our prayers are answered – water is plenty now. Our lakes are filled again, the water retention areas are complete.

      California is still in drought mode because of their insane lack of good water management. They had more of the rain and snow than AZ enjoyed, but nothing much changed in CA.
