“While the political debate about immigrants is often focused on controls at the border, the critical drivers are far from those borderlands. The climate crisis is going to continue to induce migration, particularly from Central America as a combination of droughts, hurricanes, and political and quotidian violence force an exodus. Meanwhile, an aging America will continue to have high demand for new workers to fill in and keep our economy growing.”
