The World Economic Forum is convinced that “climate refugees” will come in by the millions to the West if it doesn’t take sufficient action against global warming.
“More frequent and extreme weather events — including fires, floods, and droughts—could displace more than 200 million people by 2050 … [but] National-level barriers to the movement of people are increasing,” The World Economic Forum stated in its “Global Risks Report 2022.”
This report concedes that there is mass discontent with globalization and mass migration. From identitarian concerns to misgivings about the socio-economic impacts of mass migration, the WEF recognizes that there is growing resistance to mass migration worldwide.
It’s not just Europe and North America that are opposing mass migration, countries in South America are also becoming hostile towards the concept, which the WEF noted:
For example, Chile and Peru have reframed their migration governance mechanisms, which complicates access for migrant and refugee populations [mostly from Haiti] to essential financial and healthcare services. Meanwhile, restrictive policies originally grounded in public health concerns have not been rolled back, as indicated by sustained declines in issued visas for the United Kingdom and the perpetuation of Title 42 expulsions at the US border.
Neil Munro of Breitbart News called attention to the fact that the report received support from “two major investment firms, SK Group in Korea and Zurich Insurance Group in Switzerland.”
The report continued by noting that economic migration had significant benefits for both the country of origin and destination country. Per a World Bank report, economic migration “is the most effective way to reduce poverty and share prosperity.”
The report added:
Businesses in destination countries are at risk from a global worker deficit and demand-side shocks [loss of consumer sales] that could result from constrained migration. Migrant workers comprise an attractive consumer group that can contribute to developing domestic markets.
The report the WEF put forth is just another form of mass migration advocacy on the part of the globalist ruling class.
Munro noted that “Many U.S. advocacy groups are already pushing for population transfers — often under the guise of “climate refugees” — which could significantly increase revenues and profits for U.S. retailers and real-estate investors.”
Forget the rosy rhetoric that many NGOs and mass migration boosters push, calls for increased immigration are all about boosting profits for rent-seeking oligarchs.
This report concedes that climate migrants are economic migrants:
Climate change is a key driver of migration. It displaces people directly because of natural disasters, and it can displace them indirectly by encouraging economic migration.
This report calls for a global response aka globalism to solve this issue:
Better international collaboration is required to manage these flows to ensure that economic migrants are not exposed to exploitation and that involuntary migrants—refugees—crossing into other countries receive the assistance and shelter that they need.
Mass migration is an elite endeavor through and through. According to several polls, Americans are firmly opposed to labor migration while being lukewarm about other forms of immigration.
National populists have an easy issue to campaign on when it comes to immigration restriction. There are lots of Americans who are not fans of the economic dislocation and cultural upheaval that mass migration begins about.
Now, it becomes a question of building a faction within the GOP that can bring immigration restriction legislation to a vote. This will require national populists to bring their A-game during election season. Having the right ideas is not enough.
