Biden Considering Offering Asylum to People Displaced by Climate

President Biden issued an executive order on February 4 ordering national security adviser Jake Sullivan to produce a report by August 3 on “Planning for the Impact of Climate Change on Migration,” including options for protecting and resettling climate change-displaced persons.On Thursday, Refugees International announced the formation of an expert task force on climate change and migration in response to the same executive order.Referring to the “climate crisis” early this week, Secretary of State Antony Blinken asserted that climate changes are fueling the surge of migrants from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras that is currently overwhelming resources and immigration authorities at America’s border with Mexico.
