Trump Administration Lags Reuniting Families Separated At Southern Border

"Lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union say they've been unable to find the parents of more than 500 Children who were separated from their families at the southern border. NPR's Joel Rose reports. The kids were taken from their parents under the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy. Two years ago, thes families were separated before the Trump administration ended its so called zero tolerance policy, which was intended to deter other migrant families from crossing the border illegally. Many of these families were separated in 2017 during a pilot program that was not publicly acknowledged at the time. And before a federal judge ordered the government to reunite Children in its custody with their parents. Lawyers for the O U, which suit to block the policy say they have been unable to locate the parents of 545 Children. Those lawyers believe about two thirds of the parents who have not been found were deported back to their home countries. Volunteers have been searching for them by going door to door in Guatemala and Honduras. Joel Rose. NPR NEWS

"If you're American, you probably think of free speech as the default. Just the way things are. And I. Don't know where it enters the stuff. I don't know if it's in the water or if it's in the kindergarten curriculum Evelyn. Is Not American, but it's only something that I have encountered faith in years is just like first amendment fundamentalism she's an Australian who lives in Massachusetts and she's one of most dynamic and nuanced thinkers. Online speech. She lectures at Harvard Law School. You came here to study kind of First Amendment Law to look at this stuff. As an outsider, what was your impression of the US fundamental adherence to free speech? I feel a little bit like gas lit as a foreigner when you come to America. As I did for years ago to Study Comparative Constitutional, Law, and free speech One of the most striking things about American free speech doctrine is this like this example of there were Nazis that wanted to march in skokie. I know jumping straight to Nazis his kind of leaping into the free speech depend. But Evelyn's describing one of the most famous first amendment cases when that really tests American values, the story goes like this. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, a group of neo-nazis wanted to march in the Chicago suburb of skokie Illinois largely because a lot of Holocaust survivors lived there seven thousand concentration camp survivors living in the predominantly Jewish Chicago suburb of skokie not surprisingly, there was a huge legal fight cokie officials a block Nazi demonstrations with court injunctions when the Nazis appealed to the State Supreme Court a judge has refused to hear the case. But what might surprise you if you don't know the story is that the American Civil Liberties Union indeed a lawyer with the ACLU defended the Nazis right to March under the First Amendment saying the right to free expression with integral to who we are as a country. It's just such an iconic story of the literal Nazis were going to be allowed to marching the street and as a foreigner you come here, new learn that and normally deland that it's it's not like these inconvenient embarrassment about Assessment Amendment Law. It's this like really proud one of the truly great victories for the First Amendment was that it will protect the speech that we hate because it is you know Betta to have it out in the urban it's better to meet it with county speech and we just can't trust the government to suppress as an Australian very striking. I don't even have a right to free speech. We don't have a bill of rights and our Constitution it's it's like a completely foreign idea this fight over unfettered free speech and in fact, where it collides with Anti Semitism and Holocaust denial broke into the news cycle again, this week, there's a split screen like the Supreme Court confirmation hearings going on on one side, and then on the other side facebook releases a blog post the company which has always said it values free expression above everything else announced that it would ban any content that denies or distorts the Holocaust. Two days later, twitter did the same thing. It might seem like banning Holocaust denial is a pretty easy call, but it was only a few years ago that facebook said, it wouldn't prohibit Holocaust to nihilism on its platform. which is part of why and says, this is a really big deal I. think this is like a really iconic moment in the history of the company and its thinking and its evolution around its rules. There is no more emblematic rule that facebook had about. To First Amendment Principles. Today on the show.

Good Monday dot com today. I, WanNa talk about how seismic shift this is if we think back to just two years ago. Mark Zuckerberg gave a very now well known interview to Cara Swisher. And said, she didn't believe that posts that deny the Holocaust should be taken down. I believe that our platform should take down because I think that there are things different people get wrong. either. I don't think that they're intentionally getting a wrong but I think that they. They might be but go home. It's hard to pune intent. Boy. It is a big journey from. People get things wrong even though I might find it personally offensive. To. My own thinking has evolved. The big thing that they always have hung onto was we don't WanNa be arbiters of truth, and we will not take content down purely on the basis that it's false. We might take it on the down on the basis that its nudity or that it's hate speech or that it has other sort of effects but we weren't take content down just because it's wrong and that's sort of what's reflected in that quote from Makoto Takhar Swisher is you know some people get things wrong sometimes and the the pandemic literally changed that decision overnight in the context of a global public health emergency they abandoned that they said we will take down. False information about the pandemic because it poses a public health risk, and now we're playing ball like now companies are taking content down on the basis that it's false and we're now seeing it in other areas. We saw it in the context of the wildfires in West my country was on file for months. In December and January, and there were lots of false rumors about the cause of the fires and facebook didn't take anything down and then Oregon was on fire A. Couple of months ago, and suddenly they were taking down misinformation about the cause of their as far as think a stock contrast as you can draw. It's still interesting to hear you peg this to the pandemic because I think about all the data points that came before that this is. After the two thousand, sixteen election, it is after the Charlottesville unite the right rally, which took place in two thousand seventeen. Do you think the coronavirus pandemic is it sort of launching us into a new I guess area of thinking about content and speech on its own or or easy it kind of a I guess a catalyst for something that was going to happen anyway. Yeah. You're absolutely right that it's only sort of it's part of the broader trend. It was a particularly visible and sort of obvious example of the trend in the same way that the pandemic has made many sort of fundamental. Assumptions structures in society more visible, and we've sort of seen progressively moving more and more along that line of sort of okay. We copies all speech all the time. Let's balancing trysts and draw the line and I think that the pandemic was just sort of another step along that road. If you think about it that way these announcements from facebook and twitter about banning Holocaust denial or in line with other content moderation decisions we've seen this year like the outright ban on Cunanan content. But in other ways several and says the decision. Holocaust. Denial marks a deeper and more fundamental shift in how speeches police online Holocaust denial is one of these iconic things about the first amendment and I believe that one of the reasons why facebook sort of stuck to that principle for so long of allowing on services was because it's still considered itself a fundamentally American company attached to these first. Amendment ideals is robust marketplace of ideas. Which is bizarre when you think about it these these are clearly global companies now and most of they US bases outside all over America but there was still something that it couldn't let go of and so I think it's really when Audience First Amendment land anymore like vc's we are now in this unknown landscape of trying to work out what norms we can attach ourselves to.

Google Toughens Anti-Discrimination Rules for Advertisers

"These days where you live in word can be dramatically affected by the ads you see online. That's also true when it comes to whether you can get a loan or a credit card. That's because advertisers love to use targeted ads to reach their ideal customers in this way, a Burger Company, for instance can avoid wasting its add by showing cheeseburger images to a vegetarian fair enough. But when it comes to housing, for instance, landlords in housing developers can use algorithms to choose not to show ads to people based on their race, parental status and more, the American Civil Liberties Union calls it web lining a digital version of the term redlining. That's a widespread practice that denied homeownership to black people on the Internet, if you're not shown an ad for housing employment or that low interest car loan, you don't know what you're missing for. Instance, if a company serves up ads for high paying jobs, only the men and not to women, women lose those employment. In this way, targeted ads can cause serious harm. That's the conclusion. Google drew last week on Thursday. The company announced that it's cracking down on potential discrimination by toughening up. It's targeted ad rules. Specifically, the search giant will no longer allow advertisers in these three groups to target users based on their gender age, parental status, marital status or Zip Code in addition, it won't let advertisers exclude ads from being shown to people based on these demographics according to Ad Week. Google claims its announcement. Announcement was not a direct response to ongoing racial justice protests. Rather the company says it's been working on the policy changes with the US Department of Housing and urban development or Hud since last year Google has prohibited advertisers from targeting or excluding people based on their race, ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation. For years, the new rules simply add to those existing requirements Google said, but companies rarely make these kinds of sweeping policy changes without something else going on, and here's what it is. Last March Hud charged facebook with housing discrimination based on the way it had allowed advertisers to target facebook users at the time Hud Secretary Ben Carson said, using a computer to limit a person's housing. Choices can be just as discriminatory as slamming a door and someone space according to The Washington Post. The department, let it be known that it was stepping up scrutiny on Google and twitter for the same thing, but if Google facebook and other online at platforms already prohibited targeted advertising by race, ethnicity, religion and other identity categories. How could that be? For one thing zip codes can be used as proxies for race. The Post reported which is why Google forbidding the use of ZIP codes in ads for housing employment and credit is such a big deal. Last March facebook agreed to overhaul its policies according to Ad Week. The changes Google announced last week or similar to those facebook undertook. It'll take some months to fix its algorithms to reflect the new rules. The company says it will definitely make the updates by the end of the year to what extent updates to personalized ads will actually be reflected in people's lives, which houses they may now consider buying or which apartments they'll rent which jobs they'll be shown online well those real changes. Maybe, be hard to see. But online rules, both reflect the culture and shape, and so the hope is that by cracking down on discrimination, online or offline lives will improve.

The indictment includes allegations, relating to Assange's agreement with Chelsea Manning to help hack particular password, and relating to a government database. But most of this was the. I charge that they floated that triggered the, you're there was an earlier indictment ride, just a few weeks earlier that indictment was for violation of the computer fraud and abuse act. This indictment is for violations of the espionage act, eighteen counts, and most of the indictment describes conduct that ordinary journalists investigative journalists national security journalists engage in every day. And that's why it's difficult to see where the government thinks the line is because virtually every story about national security policy, that's on the front page, and then your times, or the Washington Post is the result of conduct of the kind that is described in this indictment of his aunt. So what constitutional line is it that Assange is on one side of, and quote unquote, journalists are on the other side of, you know, that's the question that I think we need to ask you've been immersed in these issues for many years, especially in your. Work at the ACLU you one of the main people litigating on issues of drone warfare and targeted assassination, a lot of the information we have about those programs. Come from news organizations publishing documents, including WikiLeaks also publishing documents showing what many people would say are clear, workrooms, particularly the helicopter gunship attack on Iraqi civilians, and Reuters news journalists. We got about eight individual. How long crawling around down there, but we could. We could shoot more. Is there anything in this indictment, that would allow someone to say, well, this isn't journalistic conduct and Assange wasn't acting as a journalist, is there anything in the indictment that the Justice department is alleging about Assange and WikiLeaks under the espionage charges that computer hacking stuff that the New York Times, Washington Post the intercept would also be guilty of while. So I, I absolutely agree with you. That what we know about, you know, everything from the Bush administration's torture policies to warrantless wiretapping, all of that, or almost all of it comes from whistleblowers, people who are willing to violate the law, the espionage act because they thought that the public deserve to know more than the government was telling it as your question about, you know, what, what is it that somebody could point to in this indictment that, that might help distinguish us from everybody else..

We're a co production of the BBC World Service PRI and W G B H here in Boston seeking safe refuge here in the US from violence or oppression and other countries has long been legal. It's also central to this country's identity. It says so on the statue of liberty. But President Trump has argued that migrants are taking advantage of US asylum protections and that their overwhelming the system these migrants are not legitimate asylum seekers Trump has tried to clamp down on asylum claims in many different ways a few weeks ago. He issued a proclamation stating people crossing the US Mexico border without going through. Unofficial port of entry could not claim a Silom late last night a federal court in San Francisco temporarily blocked that ruling American Civil Liberties union attorney legal aren't argued that case league learnt, how did the court rule the court ruled in our favor and squarely held. That what the administration is doing is legal that it violates federal law enacted by congress. Congress has made absolutely clear that where you enter the country cannot affect your ability to apply for asylum. The president is simply trying to sweep away congressional law. The judge said he'll have none of that. And that Congress's enactment controls. Yes. So why is it not reasonable for the country's commander in chief to require asylum-seekers to present themselves at official ports of entry. The Leo answer is straightforward. And that's because congress has made a decision that people should be allowed to apply for asylum between ports of entry now to be absolutely clear about this. No one is condoning entering between ports of entry. Not congress not us. There are federal penalties for entering between ports of entry. What's going on? Here. Is that asylum is special? It's unique it's fundamental, and what congress recognizes what the international community also. Recognizes that there will be people who enter between ports of entry, and they need to be allowed to apply for asylum because they could be in danger where you enter has no bearing on how much danger you're in. And the judge also pointed out that sometimes people will enter between ports for a variety of reasons sometime they simply won't know where the ports are. Sometimes there could be criminal gangs, pushing them through to other places sometimes as is going on. Now, the administration will not be allowing people to play at ports were creating such long lines of people are in serious danger waiting weeks and weeks with little children in Mexico just to apply at ports. And so we're congress has said is look you're not supposed to enter between a port of entry. But if you do the one right you have is to apply for asylum because Silom is to ensure that you're not sent back to danger impossibly death. And so regardless of where you enter you must be allowed. To apply for asylum. The judge's ruling is only effective until December nineteenth. What happens then going back to Trump's ruling? No, the judge's ruling goes till December nineteenth when we have a plenary injunction hearing, he will then extend the Chiro or he could rule for the government changes mind. Either way I suspect that the losing party will take this case to the federal court of appeals for the ninth circuit. ACLU attorney legal.
