Washington Governor and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Jay Inslee said Sunday that many of the migrants crossing the southern border are “climate refugees.”
“A lot of these people are climate refugees. Not all, but a lot of them. The fact that Donald Trump has waved the white surrender to climate change is wrong,” the governor said.
Inslee has made combating climate change the central issue of his presidential campaign and has tied it to other issues like eliminating the filibuster in the Senate.
Meet the Press anchor Chuck Todd asked Inslee about President Donald Trump’s proposal to have the government send migrants and asylum seekers to sanctuary cities.
