Filiz Garip, professor of sociology, writes in this Hill op-ed that de-funding climate change programs will undercut Donald Trump's goals for immigration, and explains why. 

“Combating climate change and protecting the environment, are the best ways to ensure that people have access to the basic resources and services needed to thrive,” writes Garip and co-author Amanda Rodewald. “There are well-established links between environmental degradation and conflicts, mass migrations, and refugee crises around the world, as has been seen repeatedly in the conflicts in Darfur and Nigeria and challenges in the Middle East.”
