Hey, we get it, you don’t like the weather getting political, but sometimes they just can’t help it:
“If you ask the climate migrants, who lived through the severe drought and the hunger that followed, they’ll say that joining the caravan was something they simply had to do.”

The video follows the trail of the migrant caravan from southern Mexico to the U.S. border in Tijuana, at which point the narrator says, “If they just crossed the wall — They are so close to their American dream, but have no idea how to finally reach it.” The video then cuts to audio of Donald Trump saying “The United States will not be a migrant camp and will not be a refugee holding facility.”
Meanwhile, The Weather Channel got slammed for getting political and helping carry Democrat talking points.
Didn’t know the weather channel had gotten political. Guess it’s expected with any media nowadays though. Sad

In other words, if people go about it legally it’s possible to gain entry to the U.S.
