The Trump administration is planning to create a new federal program to help cities prepare for the effects of climate change, including cities with large populations of refugees.
The Trump administration has long been supportive of a federal resettlement program.
The Trump Administration has long supported a federal resettling program.
Trump and Republican lawmakers have repeatedly called for more resettlement.
On Tuesday, the White House announced that the Trump Administration would be launching a federal program, called the Cities and Communities Resettlement Act, or CBSA, to help “provide federal support to cities and communities impacted by climate change.”
The Trump Administration is expected to release its proposal this week.
Trump has also proposed creating an Interagency Council on Climate Change and other “consultative panels” to explore solutions to climate change.
“This is not about us or our future,” Trump said in his announcement.
“It’s about the future of the American people.
I will not let our future be diminished by a handful of bureaucrats, bureaucrats who have no respect for our citizens.”
A CBSA program would provide a way for the federal government to “create a plan to mitigate and prepare for impacts of climate events and disasters,” according to a White House statement.
The White House said the CBSA would help cities and counties prepare for “an evolving climate that is expected and likely to become more severe than any recorded in human history.”
“The CBSA will help to ensure that localities are able to protect themselves, their communities, and their economies from climate change impacts that will cause significant economic losses and social dislocation,” the statement read.
Cities and communities will be required to “develop plans to mitigate, adapt, and manage climate impacts and disasters that may result from climate changes, including changes in weather patterns, land use, climate variability, and other environmental changes,” the White Court said.
Cities that receive federal funding under the CBDA could choose to apply for federal relocation assistance under the Interagency Refugee Resettlement Program.
Cities receiving relocation assistance could also apply to Congress to seek funding for their relocation.
The CBDA is a “new federal program designed to help the states and localities prepare for and mitigate climate change risks and disasters.”
The White Court added that CBSA funding will also help the federal agencies that provide refugee resettlement assistance, “including the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Agency for International Development, to provide technical assistance, training, and advice to help state and local governments prepare for climate change threats.”
Trump has also advocated for a more aggressive approach to refugees in the United States.
In April, the President announced a new executive order, the “Diversity and Inclusion for Refugees” executive order , that would expand the number of refugees admitted into the United State from 5,000 to 25,000, and would temporarily suspend the refugee program for Syrian refugees.
