DHS Launches Climate Change Program as Illegal Border Crossings Skyrocket

'The Biden administration is living in an alternate reality... '

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) The Department of Homeland Security has announced the launch of a “climate change professionals program,” which will surely come in handy as a historic number of illegal immigrants continue to cross over the southern border.

The number of illegal crossings hit 2 million in 2021, setting a new record, according to Fox News. But instead of focusing on the leaky border, DHS officials have announced the program that will “focus on adapting to climate change and resilience.”

“The Climate Change Professionals Program will be instrumental in helping the Department adapt to our changing climate by providing hands-on experience and guidance to young professionals interested in climate adaptation and resilience,” said DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

The overall goal of the program, according to Mayorkas, is to create a new generation of climate experts and execute the department’s climate action plan.

While it is unclear exactly what this program will look like in practical terms, Mayorkas claims DHS can “remain mission-resilient while reducing [their] impacts on the environment.”

Many congressmen believe that the Biden administration is turning a blind eye to the immediate crisis at the border, where illegal crossings have hit record highs, according to US Customs and Border Protection.

1.7 million migrants were detained in the fiscal year for 2021—which ended in September—and the number of arrests being made were at all-time highs. The total number for the calendar year of 2021 is expected to be much higher.

“The Biden administration is living in an alternate reality,” Rep. Ashley Hinson, R-Iowa, said. “We’ve seen multiple reports of sex criminals and known terrorists trying to cross the border and cartels are funneling lethal drugs into our country in droves.

“The Administration needs to focus on stopping the surge of illegal immigrants and prioritize supporting our border patrol agents,” she said.
