Allegheny County spokesperson Andy Down, says the county Health Department is considering his options to control those football crowds. But they don't think it's gonna work. Because even if they limit it, they know that they're still going to be people in other places, Gathering to watch the games and that sort of thing. So most of the fans wore masks, but they were clumped together in the stands an apparent violation of county rules. There you go. See, people want to go these things And as far as I'm concerned, this is outdoors. People are outside of the fresh air. I find there's nothing wrong with this. In my opinion, I think it's a great thing to do. And I'm glad to see it. But isn't it something though, right? As soon as people start to gather like this Immediately start to talk about how do we lock it down? How do we crack down? How do we take away the fun? Shocking, right. I'm very, very happy to welcome to the program. The acting Commissioner of Customs and Border Protection. Mark Morgan, Commissioner. Welcome to the show this morning. How are you, sir? I'm doing Well, rich. Thank you very much now. Absolutely. Thanks for making the time today. This is an important point. We've been talking about the Uighurs and China and the oppressive regime that's going on over there. And the president and the administration, your agency taking some real important steps here. Tell us about it. That's right. In fact, CBP really has the statutory authority and responsibility to investigate any products or goods that are being made by forced labor. And the goal is to prevent those products from being introduced and the United States supply chain and that's what this week has been all about. We called him W Rose, withhold release orders, and what that does is. That means it gives tvp that authority on those entities that we've identified that we have a reasonable suspicion that bin With forced labour. We're going to stop them, detain them and prevent those goods from come to United States. And this week we do. Ah issued five of those sorrows to specific companies, mainly in China, but mainly in the Xinjiang region, and actually, this is an unprecedented number of we've developed, ate BR O's in China alone within the last year. I'm so glad to hear this because the forced Labour is taking place in the she Jang Uighur Autonomous region where the Chinese government is engaged in systemic human rights abuses against the weaker people. Another ethnic and religious minorities. And, of course, it already is. Federal law. Federal law prohibits the importation of of all goods and merchandise, which is made by forced labor and that's exactly what's going on here. So you're stepping up to stop this? And I'm really happy about that. That is absolutely right. And make no mistake. Look, I ugh, Listen, I need to understand that this is nothing more than modern day slavery. The atrocities that have happened are just unbelievable. In fact, there's one area that they called a vocational school. It's unbelievable. And what it is really is a concentration camp that support supplying the forced labour into a Serie of different companies. And then those girls were trying to be shipped over here. It's absolutely horrendous. And you know, Commissioner Mark Morgan is with me, the acting commissioner of Customs and Border Protection When I don't want to buy something an Amazon that's made in China. It's actually made in a concentration camp. I don't think anybody wants to do that. But we don't have the ability to know that. It just comes to our door. Otherwise, if nobody stops it with the point of importation, That's second, and that's a good point. I think consumers do have a little responsibility to do a little bit of checking to make sure so if you if you have information that something's coming from the sun John region, you really need to do a little bit more due diligence because again this is really the region that thes W ers are really target. But you also write the supply change. Very complicated. You know, you may have AH, ballpark. Materialise starts out from John John gets paid from forced labor. But then it goes to three other companies on a product has made before gets United States. So these investigations are very proud of office of trade here within CBP, because these investigations air challenging, especially in a government like China, they don't exactly let us into their country do an investigation. Yeah. So to that point, I agree with you, and we should do a little more due diligence as consumers. What? What's the best way to do that? We'll get a just try to get a really clear understanding where the product is coming from, you know and again, you know, and there's a little common sense approach. If you're buying a product and whatever the product is and you know, generally got, you know the market is $200 and where you're buying it from you're getting for 100 bucks. There's generally a reason why that and that's what that's another issue of forced labour is, is that It's taking jobs away from this company. It's thiss country. It's taken just an enormous amount of profit from a U. S based companies because, of course, the product one of these one what's one reason that use forced labor? It's a lot cheaper to make the product so that that should be an indication to the consumers. Well, Commissioner. Let me ask you, why have you two things? We've heard a lot about the wildfires that are out there I saw on Twitter. You pointed out that your agency is working side by side with the search and rescue missions that's going on in these. These. These just Catastrophic wildfires out West. Actually, you know what? I really appreciate you bringing that up because that shows an example. You know, part of our mission set. You know our mission we will say protect the American people. It's not just a safeguard the borders and right Now we're talking about protecting, you know, trade and protected, you know the prosperity of the nation's economy. But part of what we do is protect the American people. And where there's hurricanes right now we have resources waited to deport Hurricane Sally.

Iraq he is Mike Skerik hello representative how are you Sir how are you Wendy I am doing well okay so I was really delighted to be able to talk to you earlier this afternoon Sir because I think a lot of people need to know what this means why now and for how long what do you know well disposed to shelter in place notification was sent out the alligator alley essentially that is just reinforcing what the governor has already put out but for the folks out there listening the reason we're doing this county by county is because we have to hit a certain threshold of the number of cases Polk County before they're going to implement this so it's very possible we could see a similar notice sent out to other counties that are surrounding the area it's just those have not been sent out just yet we are waiting for some test results to come back which once we have those we should be able to make that determination all right congressman tell me is this how are you all handling this is this some something that alarms you as it alarms the common people out here who are listening because it is frightening we definitely have some busy day journal thirty nine right now but the biggest thing we want to convey to the folks out there home as well the business owners is that we are working for an end point on this we're not just going to let this the shutdown continue on forever we are going to try to give the governor some I guess parameters to work and our work with them if you will so that this just is not continue to drag on our economy and ultimately hurt several people for one case as well gosh damage done my man I just got mine yesterday and I threw in the garbage actually I shredded and I'm like I don't even want to have the ability to look at that because it's so sad but for all of you were listening right now the congressman has a has a great Facebook page and I encourage you guys to check it out and and why don't you tell them how they can find your information so they can follow along because I think we're gonna really rely on our elected leaders now more than ever to help us with factual and timely information Sir what absolutely so if you would like to look me up representative Mike scared I'm gonna look at my legislative Facebook page it will be keeping that up to the minute updates is forced out the grass but I will tell you when the right now some of our top priorities are trying to find medical equipment so all of the state legislators from across the Commonwealth have been tasked with trying to identify companies that are out there in the Commonwealth that may be able to supply these medical masks very safety equipment the first responders and medical medical personnel will need so if there are any listeners out there that have the ability to produce the faithful facial mask the N. ninety five mask any of those shields they can use in the hospitals please reach out to your state level elected officials and we can get you in contact with the PA chamber as well very state agencies that that will be assisting in these matters are so congressman this stay at home kind of shelter in place a fact is happening tonight eight PM and it's going to be in effect for two whole weeks so tell me what does that mean we can do so essentially organs and everything you can do now go to the grocery store go to your doctor anything that the necessity you can still go about your business the biggest thing is we just want to try to eliminate eliminate any sort of non commercial travel at this time if you look at the way these models spread on the more people that are out earlier on the quicker it's going to spread more people that'll have an impact on and ultimately it's just going to put a strain on the healthcare facilities we have all across the country so it it just based on the Pennsylvania model it does look like our numbers are increasing but our hope is we'll be able to flatten the curve a little bit here in the coming weeks right and that's certainly the objective alright so as for businesses we throw this nonessential word around so are the businesses that have been opened thus far gonna continue to be allowed to do so so again the thing sort of thing applies if you are in central business or your supplying other central business as an example that that came up the other day we had a company that makes powers all the power don't necessarily is in the central business they were working directly with one of our suppliers shipping Clorox all across the country since late so we told them please stay open please keep those you know those the the trucking routes right the supply lines open so that way people can still get the supplies they need because as we start to identify some of these companies within our Commonwealth that may be able to supply the rest of the country with mass we still want to be able to get some of those products I'm gonna throw you a curve ball here I did not set you up for this but I do know that when you're out and about in your meeting people and people are getting in touch with you there's always a silver lining there's always a slice of goodness out there do you have you bumped into somebody who's done something wonderful or a business that you'd like to tell us about you know what I I have been blown away at some of the businesses on thirty ninth district we have some tremendous restaurant that that really stepped up started offering meals to folks for free for their children you know different things like that so we really appreciate that but it it it's really just been great to see our community come together we had a a business that was actually investing in ice cream and right before they were scheduled to open but they had to donate that ice cream I believe to a bunch of senior citizen centers because they want to be able to let go through so there are lot of people are starting to starting to realize that people hurting people what people need to pull together here yeah I really think that that's one of the best things about the United States of America and we've always found a way to warm up for some stuff for cell blocks and you know bounce back a grade a hundred percent Mike you have my phone number now so please when you come across a good news story like that please let me know and I'll I will get it on the air because I think now more than ever I think we collectively need something good and kinda hold on to so I would be forever in your debt Sir so absolutely what they thank you so much I appreciate

What you need to know about the 'Presidential Alert' coming to your iPhone on Wednesday
"The T Mobile's. I I would be left to assume that FEMA we'll get that data at a much later date. Probably because there's a lot of it from those major terriers to tell them how many you're an Tommy phones. We're actually on the alert chief this obviously would come from FEMA in a case of a nine eleven or something along those lines. But do you have the capability at Allegheny county's nine one one center to send out alerts to my cell phone if there's something more immediate going on in the local area. We do not not directly we have that access indirectly. And it's more for ES system. The emergency alert system one we're more used to. But I have to let that up through the Pennsylvania emergency management within further if needed at a federal level. On that up to FEMA at that level. But we have access to it. But indirectly. So would would there ever be a time when you would text us? I it's highly unlikely, and I'm hopeful that I don't ever need to. But I will tell you that emergency alert system is used. Some of the examples alerts alerts that went out yesterday. But from the national weather service, our driven by the system, the wireless emergency alert system is just an addition to that again that we're probably not quite as used to. Well, I did get some alerts on the weather, and I do get amber alerts on my cell phone too. So L and by the way on your cell phone, you can opt out of those.

"Have some economic news it's positive I wanna talk about that today and. Just how much that impacts. You this is about the second maybe the third time. I've tried to launch this topic. I, wanted to do it yesterday obviously we have robust, conversation related to John McCain again, a, move away from that today presumably but again over the course of three, hours in particularly twelve to, three somebody will do something stupid that's short and therefore will. Have something to, talk about it and of course. I don't mean anybody in particular it just seems as if there's always something, that happens between twelve and three having said that I am focused on the, economic. News is being. A positive obviously Even more. Positive slightly so with the GDP for the second quarter being revised upwards to, four point two percent what's at dawn, for, you. And when I say I've, tried, to do, this, before I wanted. To do what I want to say the day that the inspector general's report. Came down. All five hundred pages and we were basically doing it in real time. In is that was happening. Obviously it blew away the one topic that I thought. Could sail through the course of. The, day but that's just how this works and speaking, of economics and dollars and cents, I, wanna talk about you in another area it's not a lot of money, relatively speaking it's one point, one six million dollars but the Pittsburgh Allegheny county sports and. Exhibition authority is, asking the rat of course that. Would be the regional asset district to earmark that much money about one point, two million in sales tech revenue next year to help with capital repairs and, improvements To PPG David Lawrence convention center PNC park in Heinz field Now again relatively speaking considering how much money has. Already been set aside already committed to an already funded publicly it's not as if this is going to make a. Break anybody to be perfectly honest about it unless it does and what I, mean by that is not even so much the financial part but the philosophical concept of. Continuing to have tax, payer money be dedicated towards these. Venues on the one hand that's a cost of doing business if Pittsburgh is, going to be a major city when it comes to sports we've, long argued that that's something that is important. To not lose and that. Would. Be a professional sports team let alone a convention center, also once you, start down this road which was started many many years ago this is just a natural extension of it again Supplemental addendums and agreements and things of that sort of only, added onto it for years now when, you consider, as well however that these teams in particular make an ungodly amount of money compared to. Well just about anything I mean sports franchises in the ranking rankings annually are a big deal not just league to. League but within each league and on the one hand we want to root, for our local teams to do really well in terms of value because at provide stability. And I guess some, feeling of civic pride if you. Somehow can on the flip side of that when they're making that much money, why something as small as one point two million dollars to come, from taxpayers actually they want to fund this. Through what's called a multi. Facility. Reserve fund and to be perfectly honest while this is, in addition to, about thirteen million dollars it's Annely put aside that Is allocated by the rat I have to say that this is more of a philosophical discussion, than anything else there are a lot, of people as pointed out in the. Post, because at this morning still aren't really particularly thrilled by how this thing. All started that's water under the dam on the flip side of that you're still, being asked to pay money One point two million. Dollars again when you spread it around it's the cost of doing business But why should you be doing the business is the. Question eight six six three nine. Hundred ten twenty eight six six three nine one ten twenty I want your thoughts on that and again we'll get more into the details as relates. To this, growth in. The economy that consumer spending which makes up seventy percent of the economy it's very very important when we. Go out to shop is is a huge indicator and the latest reports. And Associated Press show significantly that Home Depot Kohl's best buy target are actually having a resurgence there was a time when many of us thought that this was a stretch where we're going to see a lot. More bankruptcies and a lot more companies just. Not be able to stay with what was happening alternately result in, what's called a retail apocalypse well looks as if right now with the economy stronger more options faster at the brick and, mortar stores and previously where the case better and, easier websites and things of that Sort that a lot of these companies are doing much better and I've only given you a few Now once again a lot of this has to do with the fact that Amazon is dictated the terms of engagement and, Amazon is not only the big four hundred pound elephant in the, room on everything it seems like but. That's where many go in order to do their thing online and that's where people go, to shop, there's no question. That there are certain pieces of the puzzle that. Do fit more comfortably for, instance online than, others I'm not one, to want to buy clothes online I got, a feeling well first of all I never buy clothes but if I. Ever do go buy clothes I'm going to buy. Clothes that I could feel touch and as well we remember from the great days on Fifth Avenue downtown case could fit any man which is apropos to nothing except for the few that just got that So in some ways this is a response by these large multi multi billion dollar companies to Amazon, it's anti Amazon in that Spurs on all types of things such as how these changes have affected you. Have they affected you are you on online or more than you were five years ago, do you, anticipate continuing to. Be an online or are you getting more back. To the brick and mortar, and for that, matter the bigger question, that I have which I've been wanting to, ask now for forty eight hours is despite this economy being stronger their. Reports at about forty percent of American families struggle. To meet at least one of their basic needs last year including paying for food healthcare housing and utilities We need to talk about how to wrap our skulls around that because that's not, good enough despite what's, happening, at, the top That conversation and many more through the course of the next.
