Pelosi Outrageously Claims Climate Change Has Led To ‘Humanitarian Challenge’ At The Border

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) spoke out on Sunday to outrageously claim that climate change has led to a “humanitarian crisis” at the border in which a surge of migrant children have crossed it.

Pelosi Talks Border Crisis

“There are more children, about 600, 700 more children, unaccompanied children coming over the border,” Pelosi said while appearing on ABC’s “This Week.” “This is a humanitarian challenge to all of us. What the administration has inherited is a broken system at the border, and they are working to correct that in the children’s interest.”

“I’m so pleased that the president, as a temporary measure, has sent FEMA to the border to help facilitate the children going from one 72-hour issue where they are cared for as they are transferred into family homes or homes that are safe for them to be,” she added.

“So this, again, is a transition for what was wrong before to what is right,” Pelosi said. “Of course, we have to also look to Central America, Mexico, and the rest. The corruption, the violence, all of that.”

Pelosi Bizarrely Blames Climate Change

That’s when Pelosi bizarrely blamed climate change for the situation at the border.

“My most recent trip to the northern triangle, that would be Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador. You saw the impact of climate change,” she said. “These people were leaving because of the drought.”

“They couldn’t farm, and they were seeking other ways to survive,” she added. “There are many reasons to go into this, but the fact we have to deal with it at the border, and some of the people coming there are seeking asylum.”

“I always like to quote our friends in the Evangelical movement,” Pelosi continued. “At one of our hearings, we had before the majority of the representatives said to us. The United States refugee resettlement program is the crowned jewel of American humanitarianism.”

“So we have certain responsibilities that we must honor,” she concluded. “We have to have a system that accommodates that, and that is what the Biden administration is in the process of doing.”
