Democratic Washington Governor Jay Inslee, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, told NBC’s Chuck Todd his plan to deal with the waves of Central American migrants seeking asylum at the southern border: “Attack climate change.”
“I would attack climate change because a lot of these people coming north are climate refugees. Not all of them, but a lot of them, and the fact that Donald Trump has waved the white flag of surrender is wrong,” Inslee said on Meet the Press Sunday morning.

Inslee, who is running a climate change-centric campaign, echoed claims made by a number of activists, experts and media outlets that man-made global warming is driving drought and crop disease in Central America, particularly Honduras, forcing farmers and laborers to head north.
Both former Vice President Al Gore and Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have made similar claims, linking mass migration from Central America to the U.S. to climate change.
