Biden Pledges To Dismantle Trump's Sweeping Immigration Changes — But Can He Do That?

"Joe Biden has pledged if he becomes president to dismantle the sweeping changes that President Trump has made to the US immigration system but could buy Don't do that. As NPR's John Burnett reports. It's easier said than done. People most closely watching to see if Biden defeats Trump and reverses. His immigration crackdown may be beyond our borders. Some 700 migrants languish in filthy tents pitched in a public park amid mud. Maps and clouds of mosquitoes. The encampment is in Matamoros, just across the Rio Grande from Brownsville, Texas. They're seeking asylum in the U. S. But stuck here under a Trump initiative known as remain in Mexico while they wait there closely following US presidential race, says Carlo Garcia, an asylum seeker from Honduras. They buy the place our hope in Joe Biden, who's the Democratic nominee because he would shoot the immigrants very differently than Trump has. We hope he will. And change is all of this Trump has created. This is discrimination and racism. Trump is touting that program's success here He is at a rally in Yuma, Arizona. Last tough. We don't want him here. We want him outside. We got sued all over the place. There. We won. So now they don't come into the United States taken Wait out. While the president claims to have restored a broken immigration system, human rights advocates are appalled that what they call the cruelty of his policies. Oh, Marge. Odd. Watt is director of the L Use Immigrants rights project. What the administration has sought to do is to simply turn off immigration and to do it unilaterally. By presidential edict without the approval of Congress. That project should be reversed. And that's exactly what Joe Biden pledges to do. His position paper on Immigration 51 bullet points over 22 pages seeks to roll back Trump's accomplishments and reenact Obama era policies. If I'm elected president, we're going to immediately and Trump's sold on dignity. Immigrant communities restore our moral state in the world are our historic rolls a safe haven for refugees and asylum seekers. Biden says no more border wall no more separating immigrant families, no more prolonged detentions or deportations of peaceable migrant workers. He would restore the asylum system and create a roadmap to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. It's a long to do list. I don't think it's realistic that Biden in four years could enroll everything that trump dead. Sarah Pierce and another analyst that the Migration Policy Institute, a nonpartisan thinktank recently catalog more than 400 executive actions Trump has taken on immigration. From heavier border and interior enforcement to restricting asylum to slashing refugee visas to creating remain in Mexico because of the intense volume and pace of change is the Trump administration enacted while in office. Even if we have a new administration, Trump will continue. Tio have had an impact on immigration for years to come. But Biden faces a host of obstacles that could slow his immigration counter revolution. First, there's the specter of renewed chaos at the southern border last year groups as large as 1000 Central Americans at a time. We're waiting across the Rio Grande into El Paso to request asylum. The Border Patrol was overwhelmed and ended up detaining families in primitive, unsanitary conditions. And no one wants a repeat of that. Ron Vitello, former deputy commissioner of customs and Border protection, worries that Biden will cancel bilateral agreements with Mexico that have dramatically slowed the migrant flow right now decided that they weren't going to continue to help us. You know, people would start coming through like we saw the caravans two springs ago. There's no reason that it wouldn't come back as fast as it Wass. NPR asked a senior advisor to the Biden campaign. What would happen if the new president gave migrants of Green light? The adviser said. They're cognizant of the pull factor. Then there's the issue of the enforcers. Immigration agents have enjoyed extraordinary support from the White House, the Trump administration has bragged about unshackling them to let them do their jobs more aggressively. What happens if Joe Biden tries to put the shackles back on? That isn't something that the lights which you can't change culture within an organization that best overnight. Angela Kelly is a senior advisor to the American Immigration Lawyers Association. So I agree that it's going to be a long long road. A Biden presidency would also find itself skirmishing with conservative lawyers over its reversals. The way Trump has been tied up in federal court fighting the R. J. Hamann is with the Federation for American Immigration Reform. If Biden is elected, and his administration starts rescinding executive actions that Trump had firm legal authority to Dio groups like us will sue. That is a fact. Finally, there's the Pandemic and NPR Ipsos poll showed a majority of Americans support Trump's decision to shut the borders to all types of immigrants to stop the spread of the Corona virus. Biden has not said if he would reverse that order. So it's anybody's guess when the virus will subside and the nation can welcome immigrants again. John Burnett NPR news

"Weekend edition from NPR News on Lulu Garcia Navarro. Good morning and thanks for being here. This is America right now by the numbers. Some five million people have confirmed Corona virus infections. Just yesterday, 55,000 people tested Positive Cove in 19 killed 1100 people in the last 24 hours, and more than 30 million people are relying on some form of unemployment benefit. Congress has failed so far to agree on a new relief bill. So yesterday, President Trump signed executive orders to extend a number of temporary economic measures, and all of this is happening as we race toward an election in November. We're joined now by NPR's national political correspondent Mara Liasson. Hi, Mara. Hi, Lulu. So the president spent a lot of time slamming Democratic lawmakers yesterday and rolled out economic relief that we should say is temporary but aren't many Senate Republicans dead set against extending these extra benefits? Yes, they are. But they're also supposedly against any president. Usurping Congress is constitutional power of the purse that is the power to tax and spend. But politically for the moment, At least, this is a point for Trump. He gets to say Congress couldn't or wouldn't act. But I did, even though there might be a lot less than meets the eye with some of these executive actions. It's unclear if the unemployment extension will actually happen. And when it comes to the eviction relief, for instance, the memo he signed merely tells federal agencies to quote consider if evictions should be stopped. So maybe less there than meets the eye. Meanwhile, we should note that the pace of the presidential races, of course, picking up and Vice President Joe Biden is giving more interviews and doing more public speaking and Republicans are watching. And they have AH, weaponized some of Biden's answers. Well, some violins, answers have been what we call gaffes. He made another one while answering your question. Lulu on a panel consisting of black and Latino journalists. You asked him a question that would was very important to Latino voters in Florida. You asked him if he would reengage with Cuba. Here's what he said. What you all know, but most people don't know. Unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is incredibly diverse community. Incredibly different attitudes about different things. Unlike the African American community, why bring up African Americans at all, and suggests that they are monolithic in their views. So this is another gaffe. Biden's recent gaffes are often about African Americans. Remember, he said. If you're voting for Trump quote, you ain't black. They're always unprompted. And it's inexplicable, given the support he has among African Americans, given that African American voters saved his candidacy, But is this a winning strategy for the GOP? Well, look, they depend on Biden making gaffes. They're hoping to use them against him. But the big question is. Maybe this is like 2016 when all of the outrageous things that Trump said that Democrats thought would hurt him. Didn't Biden's poll numbers are pretty steady? Why? Maybe because this race is a referendum on the incumbent, and the big question is, Will it stay that way? Will trump succeed in making this race into a binary choice? So stay tuned for that. Indeed. NPR national political correspondent As always on Sunday, Mara, Thank you so much. Thank you. The federal agency in charge of naturalizing new citizens is being hit with budget shortfalls, paralyzing backlogs and possible furloughs. With less than three months before the presidential election. All of this is affecting who will be able to vote in November. Shannon doing of member station WMUR reports that hundreds of thousands of immigrants are watching their dream of casting a ballot this year slip away. We filled out your form. I think we have all the information that we need. A staff member with Boston based Project Citizenship is consulting with 36 year old angles Olive Arrow over the phone talking through the final steps of his naturalization application, Alright. Thank you very much Appreciate your Olivera was born and raised in the Dominican Republic. He sat his green card for eight years and applied for citizenship this year, hoping he'd be able to vote in November, expecting to get to write the book, But the timeline is not that good for that, So it's not gonna be possible. The process to become a naturalized U. S. Citizen takes about 10 months. That wait. Time has nearly doubled since 2016. U. S Citizenship and Immigration Services is facing a backlog and budget crisis. The agency is in charge of processing things like visas. Green cards, marriage petitions. And citizenship applications. USCs created a naturalization prices. That's Doug Grant, an immigration expert and senior fellow at the Federation of American Scientists. He recently testified before Congress by Ran's analysis. There are more than 300,000 people who in years past would be naturalized in time to vote but will almost certainly miss out this year. These aspiring Americans are young and old Republicans and Democrats living all across the country would normally be eligible to vote this November but still haven't had their interview. Many of these would be voters live in swing states, 40,000 are in Florida and close to 8000 in Pennsylvania, according to Rand, the administration sites the shutdown caused by the pandemic and more intensive vetting to root out fraud as reasons for the uptick in wait times. But sharp, very doll Adeiny, director of government relations for the American Immigration Lawyers Association, has a different theory. It's not about security. It's about deterring people from becoming American citizens doll. Dany also testified before Congress, arguing this is a strategic effort by the Trump administration to dismantle the legal immigration process. If you look at the policies that have been enacted They deliberately decrease USC, a sufficiency, slowdown, case processing and discourage individuals from applying. And although the claims are that it's for fraud detection or to weed out frivolous applications, there hasn't been evidence to that. Pandemic did shut down many USCs operations, including naturalization ceremonies. For nearly three months, the agency has resumed smaller, socially distanced ceremonies and about 110,000 new citizens have been naturalized in time to vote. But there's still a huge backlog. And last month, nearly 70% of the agency's workforce received furlough notices because there are fewer immigrants applying for legal status, and the agency relies on those fees. It has a $1.2 billion shortfall that will increase everyone's wait times, says Sarah Pierce, a policy analyst at the Migration Policy Institute. A furlough of the majority of US CS the staff would only add to that. So it would really slow the immigration system to a grinding halt without additional funding. The agency says. The furloughs will go into effect at the end of the month. And if that happens, there will be fewer eligible voters come November. For NPR news. I'm Shannon doing Here is.

"We've got an excerpt from town of Deads book about that failed acquisition of the French companies on mentioned and why nobody had he stopped it. It's on our website marketplace also there and you're gonna want to check this out. That old marketplace theme music I mentioned with the G audio logo in it there, it's kind of wild U. S citizenship and Immigration services, which is, of course, the government's main office for citizenship. Immigration services says it's going to have to furlough 2/3 of its staff. Unless Congress sends $1.2 billion its way by the first week of August. Why I hear you asking Because it's funded by user fees and as applications for legal immigration have dropped because fewer people want to come here. The agency is running out of money, and that means marketplaces and Mueller reports. For people trying to get work visas or green cards and already long and arduous process is going to get longer and more arduous. Suraj Beyonce came to the United States in 2000 to get a masters degree in computer science in North Carolina. He's been working under an H one B visa since 2005 and he got tentative approval for permanent residents four years later. He's been waiting for his green card ever since. After a certain period of thing. We just stopped looking Suraj and his wife, Karima, have two daughters. Born in America Arena is a dentist. And together they owned their own practice in New York, Pennsylvania, where the employees seven people, he still works in it and has to renew his visa. Every couple of years. There's like a sword hanging on your neck all the time because Unless you get your green card in your hand. You never know if what happened this your H when gets denied next time man in Shah, data specialist in Austin, Texas, is also waiting for his green card. But he's got a more pressing concern. Right now he needs to visit his father in India who has cancer. Chaz, waiting for immigration officials to give him documentation that will allow him to get back into America. If they're already backlogged and remove people. My body is it might even cause for the village. In a lot of ways. Charles experiences typical to be an immigrant in this country is to shift from one anxiety to the next Alan or is president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. He says. The U. S. C s budget is so dire because it is discouraged new applicants, double the amount of money it spends on fraud prevention and tripled what it spends on vetting. So the shortfall right now with the budget is for mismanagement of the government by imposing new regulations there weren't needed. USCs declined comment. The agency also made it Morrell offensive to apply for a visa raising fees earlier this year to make up for fewer applications. Richard Berk, CEO of envoy global Affirm that helps companies navigate the visa process, says Cos We're willing to pay those higher fees but just want certainty. Employers are worried that a reduction USCs staff could mean they don't get the workers that they need those that we serve you.

Unless Congress sends $1.2 billion its way by the first week of August. Why I hear you asking Because it's funded by user fees and as applications for legal immigration have dropped because fewer people want to come here.

After a certain period of time. We just stopped looking. Suraj and his wife, Karima, have two daughters. Born in America. Karima is a dentist. And together they owned their own practice in New York, Pennsylvania, where the employees seven people, he still works in it and has to renew his visa. Every couple of years.

The U. S. C s budget is so dire because it is discouraged new applicants, double the amount of money it spends on fraud prevention and tripled what it spends on vetting. So the shortfall right now with the budget is for mismanagement of the government by imposing new regulations that weren't needed. USCs declined comment. The agency also made it Morrell offensive to apply for a visa raising fees earlier this year to make up for fewer applications. Richard Berk, CEO of envoy global Affirm that helps companies navigate the visa process, says companies are willing to pay those higher fees but just want certainty.

Alarming surges in corona virus cases across the south and West have raised fears that the outbreak is spiraling out of control, and that hard won progress against the virus is slipping away because of resistance of many Americans to wearing masks in keeping their distance from others.

ICE Says Pardon Not Enough For Detained Hartford Woman; They Want to Deport Her Anyway

"I imagine you've been fully pardoned of your crimes but get punished for them anyway that's what's happening in Connecticut where immigration and customs enforcement is trying to deport a legal permanent resident even though her record has been cleared his Connecticut public radio's Diane or some reports the Attorney General there is fighting in court to force the federal government to recognize the state's pardons when she was four years old ways are Waltons mother brought her from England to Connecticut where she's lived as a legal permanent resident then during her turbulent teens Walton got caught shoplifting and conspiring to steal more you know if the crime but I also was three years ago when I was much younger well to speaking from an ice detention center in Boston she's there even though she's been fully pardon by the state of Connecticut for her crimes Abigail letters from people like saying my character and what not I mean you know everybody doesn't this get a party you have to be free of crime for a period of time when she got word in January that she'd likely be granted a full and unconditional state pardon Walton said she thought it would mean she wouldn't be deported for violating the terms of her green card should be able to move on with her life get a better job and do better for her family but paperwork for the pardon didn't come through till March one day after she was picked up by ice ran right after that you know was devastating right what's going on like why is this happening it does surprise me for a number of reasons Connecticut Attorney General William Tong says before ice always recognized Connecticut's pardons and under federal immigration laws if you receive a full absolute and unconditional pardon from your state you are entitled to an automatic waiver of deportation the federal government says it's just following the letter of the law at a court hearing in Boston earlier this summer justice department attorney Jessica burns pointed to the exact language of the immigration and nationality act we are interpreting the parting weaver which is part of the I. NA which specifically limits pardons pardons by the governor president of the United States but that's not how pardons work in Connecticut here the governor delegates authority to a board of pardons and paroles in Connecticut is not unique governors in six states delegate pardon power to a board and so my question is the Attorney General is why are you treating Connecticut different than places like Georgia again William Tong I hope that's not a partisan basis but it sure feels that way Connecticut's immigration policies are more liberal than George's in fact Connecticut just past one of the nation's most restrictive laws limiting when law enforcement can cooperate with ice attorney heather Prendergast of the American immigration lawyers association says that may be part of the reason that ISIS honoring Georges St pardons and not Connecticut's the only difference that I can see as someone who's not at the agency is that one state as policies that are arguably very favorable to ISIS position where as the other state does not not only difference will be and the sea with several Walton remains in an ice detention facility it's America you know so I figured every state will follow the same process in New York City hears arguments in her case on Tuesday the case is being closely watched because it could affect other immigrants facing deportation for NPR news I'm Diane Orson in new haven

"He wants Merican immigration to look, more like Canada's and Australia's they have a point based or America's system immigrants with higher. Qualifications would get more points. Trump always wanted to reduce family based immigration. If you're a foreign born citizen here, you can bring over your spouse or your parents, and today that's the dominant system and Trump. Complains that brings in too many unskilled immigrants. He wants to create a whole new visa category. The build America visa, what's been the reception to the plan, so far. Well, oughta even before he stepped up to the Mike in the rose garden this afternoon, the leaked version of his plan was being slammed from the left and the right immigration hardliners say it allows too many immigrants into the country every year, it would keep visas at the current level, which is about one point one million a year on the left, I called Ben Johnson. He's executive director of the American immigration lawyers association, and he says his problem is that Trump is pitting, one group of immigrants against another the idea that family migration is somehow a drag on the American economy of the American communities. It's just wrong. You know, the ability for people to live with their families as an important part of them being successful in their new country. And critics say one of the big problems with Trump's plan on on first glance is why and why it's going to face such opposition doesn't say anything about the nearly seven hundred thousand dreamers. These are the young people who were brought to the country illegally children. They now have work permits and protection against deportation. But it's. Tenuous and Democrats have been insisting from the beginning that the administration has to do something about the dreamers. This plan is also supposed to address border security and asylum applicants, what does it say about that? Well, there's not many specifics that he gave today at creates a self sustaining border security trust fund that will be funded. He says, from fees generated at the border crossings. He said his plan will screen out, Silom seekers who have frivolous claims of persecution back home, and they'll be promptly returned. But again, we need to wait and see the particulars of the plan that the White House should be releasing sin. Meanwhile, John Lewis situation like at the border at this point. Well, the White House continues to point to the crisis, the border to drive, the debate on his immigration reforms, a two and a half year old Guatemalan toddler died in El Paso area hospital just on Tuesday night, the Guatemalan consul says he had pneumonia he crossed the border with his mother some five weeks earlier. And remember, this is the fourth migrant child to die in the last six months, the crossing numbers are still out of sight, last month more than one hundred nine thousand migrants were taken into custody after crossing the border without authorization. The border patrol says it's so overwhelmed. It's building ten cities to house them there on the border, and it's resorting to fly them to other cities looking for detention space. And this is an especially dangerous time across the river spring, rains have swollen, the Rio Grande earlier this month, a raft capsized in the swift current and two children. Drowned that's NPR's. John burnett. Thank you for your reporting, you bet Audie. Alabama's governor Kay Ivey has signed into law. The most restrictive abortion legislation in the country. The law bans abortion in almost all cases, there are no exceptions for rape, or incest. In a statement released after the signing the governor acknowledged that this Bill may force. The supreme court to quote revisit the landmark abortion ruling Rovers has weighed that goal shared by our next guest. Erik Johnston is the president of the Alabama pro-life coalition. And he wrote the bell, welcome to all things considered. Thank you for having me, this print court has held for more than forty five years, that women have a constitutional right to access abortion, in the US as such this law is currently unenforceable. So do you agree with governor Ivy that the primary goal of this law is to get the supreme court to revisit Roe versus Wade? Yes, I agree with that in this way that we want to stop abortion of unborn children. And the only way we can do that is to go back and revisit the road decision. So this law is in effect vehicle to do that. But the real purpose of this law is to save the lives of unborn children, but it cannot as. As of now be put into practice. So that goal seems unachievable unless and until the supreme court overturns Roe that is correct. We expected to be holdings of unconstitutionality and the trial court, and then the pellet court and then we are hopeful that the supreme court will agree to review, the case at that point, the prominent televangelist, Pat Robertson, who's been vocally opposed to abortion believes this lawn. Alabama goes too far. Let's listen to part of what he said yesterday in his program the seven hundred club extreme all they wanna challenge, Roe versus Wade. But my humble is that this is not the case we want to bring the supreme court because I think this one lose. How do you respond to that concern that the state of Alabama is overplaying its aunt here? Well, no, I don't think so. I know that, that Robson is a lawyer preacher, and so forth and been around a long time. But I think he's very wrong on that. How this Bill offers probably the cleanest presentation of a challenge to ROY. Oh, that you could come up with, because it's just very simple. And its definition of what an unborn child is, and in the application of the law, merely saying that it's a crime to, to perform abortion, you're saying, because it's lack and white. It's a better case for the supreme court to take rather than something more incremental. Well, you know, you can't address the person who that issue of incremental basis. If you face had on what Romains you just have to have a very simple Bill simple statement of law to do that. The debate over this law broke down over whether there should be an exception for rape, and incest, and a final version does not include those exceptions, which means a man who rapes and impregnates, a woman faces a penalty that could in some cases, be less severe than the doctor who ends the pregnancy at the woman's request. Do you think that disparity is appropriate? Yes. If we are saying that the unborn child is a person, then he like you and I are walking around people if we are killed it's murder. And so we treated the same way where. Consistent the penalty for ripe is not as much because you're not killing a person. But if the US court determines row was incorrect and that the unborn child is a person, then that person should be entitled to all the protection of law. And so when you take his life, you pay the penalty for it that also with that kind of a penalty will stop there from being the back alley abortions as they say, because the deterrent will be significant this law does not punish women who choose to have an abortion, if you believe that person hood begins at conception and that abortion is murder. Would you like to see women who choose to end pregnancy be punished for that? Now it's been our policies in Severi, beginning that when we deal with the abortion issue, we don't penalize the woman she is already in a very bad situation, and we want to help her through that situation and by putting penalties on it just adds to that. So we've never put penalties on women. I know you haven't but if in your view abortion, is murder. Why not? Well, you say, well, she's complicit in the murder. Well, that, that is something that we have to deal with. But that is a choice that we made because she is in the middle of the process, and we don't want to make her an accomplice is that just a political choice. Now, I think that's the real choice that we want is we try to reach out to women. Our goal is not just to say the lives of the babies, but to help women most of the laws, we've done the primary goal was to healthcare of the win because of the substandard care, they receive an abortion clinics. And yet, this law does not allow abortion women's health is in danger. Only one woman's life is in danger, in that sense. It does seem to stop short of protecting women's health, while it has exception for life. It has exception for impairment of maitre, bodily function physically. It also has a suicide exception, and it has that emergency exception. Eric Johnson, president of the Alabama pro-life coalition who wrote the language of Alabama's abortion banned.

"Us to discuss all this is Greg Chen. He's the director of government relations for the American immigration lawyers association. Gregg, welcome to the takeaway. Thank you for having me Tenzin. So let's take a broad look across the country when it comes to the immigration courts and the government shutdown. What are we seeing what is most dramatic as the example of the story? Mr. OTS feeling shows is that the president's shutdown is jeopardizing the lives of asylum seekers and other immigrants who have been waiting often for years for their cases to be resolved. And what that means is that asylum seekers who are worried about their lives at that. They could still be sent back to dangerous conditions in their home countries. They're still waiting in limbo and evidence in their case could go stale witnesses who are going to provide declarations and information showing the persecution and the violence that these people have suffered could be lost. And so the. This shutdown is really making the courts, not operational at this point and lives are going to be people are really going to be hurt by this. What about attorneys how are they handling the situation? I mean, do they understand how this shutdown is affecting their clients? Well, we are still trying to figure that out and with fifteen thousand immigration lawyer members across the country. Will we are hearing from our members that they're having their cases be delayed and an off the docket and as judged habit or described the vast majority of cases in this backlog of more than he heard thousand cases now possibly more than a million. If all the additional cases are added as the administration has planned to do. Those vast majority of cases, those are the ones that are sitting on the dockets in the non detain calendar. These people that are not in detention of any kind those cases are being pushed off, and they will have to wait typically more than a year in New York. We're talking about probably not having your. Case go back on until two thousand twenty two or twenty twenty three. That's a few years out and attorneys are still trying to figure out what to do to make sure these severe delays don't hurt their clients as we mentioned in the introduction. There is a severe backlog of these cases even before the shutdown happened. We interview judge Ashley tab for who was with the national association of immigration judges. And she told us the following we need to remove the immigration court from the Justice department, the backlog that we're seeing now and the functionality that we're seeing now all stem from the fact that we have an immigration court run by a prosecutor. So it is absolutely indefensible to have a court that have that ability of a prosecutor to interfere and interested in the courts for non perspectives and policy. You can't have the executive branch responsible for the enforcement of the law. As well. As education of claims that are brought result at the enforcement of those laws. Greg your thoughts on that is judged tab adore correct is the lack of independence for immigration courts. Partly to blame for the backlog Ayla. The American workers cessation does agree with position that the immigration courts can no longer be part of the department of Justice controlled by the attorney general, and it's true that the backlog of cases was already very large before this ministration took office, but policies that the Trump administration has implemented particularly under attorney general Jeff Sessions and his successors seem to be taking the same approach. Those policies have made worse they are literally preventing the courts from being able to operate efficiently, and the are literally hamstringing judges from being able to manage the dockets. So that they can take the cases that are requiring more urgent review. So they can make. Those decisions appropriately in a timely manner. They're holding those up, and what's happening is a we are seeing that due process for asylum seekers, a console rights are being affected here. Do they have any to those those folks have any recourse, given this shutdown? I mean, or is it really just a question of wait and see and we've got about thirty seconds left. Well, the policies of the administration are being challenged in the courts now, especially decisions that will directly limit the right of asylum seekers to be able to get fair review of their cases. Those are going to be challenged by lawyers in the courts, we will make sure to stop this. The constitution protects the rights of asylum seekers who are seeking protection in the courts and the courts can operate properly to guarantee that that is just not the American way. Greg China's the director of government relations for the American immigration lawyers association. Greg thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me. Let's get more now on the politics of the government shutdown. Amanda terkel is the Washington DC bureau chief for huffpost. Amanda, thanks so much for joining us. Thanks for having me. So we're in a stalemate here day seventeen. Are you hearing any solutions that might get us out of this? No. There's no right now there is no meeting scheduled between the White House and congressional leaders. It seems like a speaker Nancy Pelosi who is of course, a democrat wants to start considering individual bills to that would reopen the government and fun individual agencies. But that doesn't look like it's going anywhere in the Senate because Mitch McConnell doesn't want to take up something that President Trump won't side. And basically, the dynamics are still you have President Trump who is insisting that he gets five point seven billion dollars for his wall. And you have Democrats who say no way, and until something changes there. Nothing's happening. Well in the middle of all this as we know there are people's lives hanging in the balance. We just did a segment on the impact of the shutdown on immigration courts people's cases that are being backed up, but outside of that federal employees are just not getting paid from judges to TSA workers. I understand the politics of this. But I'm just thinking is there anything that will break this other than? The president's wall. What is going to happen is there's going to be more public pressure. Lawmakers to do something you already have three Senate Republicans Susan Collins, Cory Gardner and Thom Tillis they're facing tough reelection races in twenty twenty. So maybe this is part of why there are speaking out a little bit more. But they said they wanna see some resolution and they're not standing with Trump necessarily. So you you talked about all these federal workers who are facing these tough circumstances who aren't getting paid. They're going to be speaking up even more as the shutdown drags on. It's now the second longest shutdown in history. And if it goes through the weekend that'll be the longest one ever. Well, that's what I was gonna say to. I mean, you think about just the TSA folks who are, you know, this could actually present security issues for a lot of folks, I'm wondering if you think that the public pressure will be enough to get some movement on either side here, I think it will be eventually definitely I mean, that's what's ended these shutdowns in the past. I mean. Do you think people think about federal workers is all being centered around DC, but that's not actually true federal workers more federal workers work at other parts of the country than in Washington DC. And so people are hearing about this from all over the place, and we've talked about the people who aren't working aren't getting paid. But then you as you said, they're all these workers who are working and who still aren't getting paid. And they have to figure out how they're paying for child care. They have to figure out how they're paying for their rent. And they have all these bills that they need to keep up with it. Just because their paycheck maybe coming. Eventually. That's not good enough. Yeah. I have a feeling a government shutdown. No matter what side of the political divide your on. It's going to be less and less palatable as people don't get paid as the weeks go on and you have taxis and coming up next month's is when people start filing to get returns and to get refunds and the IRS right now isn't equipped to do that. And so you're going to have people mad there. And then you have this issue of the national part at least. Seven people have died and national park since the shutdown began investigations into those deaths have been delayed because they haven't been able to have the workers to look into them. And so there's a lot of public safety issues as well. Amanda terkel is the Washington DC bureau chief for huffpost. Amanda. Thank you. Thank you. On the next on being visual storyteller. Myra Calman on the normal daily things we.

"Robertson, we have a collision there and that right on the eastbound ten for Pacific Coast Highway to the one ten downtown LA is taking you one hour and six minutes right now. Northbound four zero five at the one on one connector looks like we have a stalled vehicle and the number one lane. There aren't holy. Thank you so much. Appreciate it. More clouds tonight. Lows forties and fifties chance of rain tomorrow right now, it's sixty one degrees in Santa Monica at four thirty five. From NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish. And I'm Mary Louise Kelley, and we're going to take a moment now to examine the NRA's efforts to go global the American lobby group, I chartered in the state of New York in eighteen seventy one is today. Forging ties in Brazil in Australia in Russia. Polly Mawson's writes about this for Bloomberg in an article, titled NRA goes international in its mission to defend guns. Paulie mawson's? Welcome to all things considered. Thank you for having me. So walk us through some of your reporting, take Brazil where a new president gyro Bolsonaro has just taken office having made gun rights, a big part of his campaign platform. Did he specifically embrace the NRA? I think we'll scenario was great example of the internationalization of the National Rifle Association because both scenario and his son in fact, who as part of his campaign have really made an effort to make gun rights. A tangible concept in Brazil a country that does not have a second amendment the way that the US does. So Bolsonaro said that guns are a guarantee to freedom and this week president Bolsonaro actually announced that Brazil will move to make it easier to purchase a firearm. There that's going to be a really big change for that country, which leads the world in the rate of firearm stats right now. And then let's touch briefly on Russia where ties between the government and the NRA have been controversial to say. The least the case of Maria Buccino, the Russian national who cozied up to our leaders, and who now admits that she was trying to influence Americans on behalf of the Kremlin has made huge headlines. Here has the whole Bhuta episode harmed NRA outreach in Russia. I think the Boutin episode has brought a lot of attention to what that outreach looks like and for people that can be considered harmful because it's something that was really sort of happening under the radar before. And now that there's so much focus on this. Now that she has pleaded guilty people really scrutinizing what the NRA's relationship looks like with Russian every different way. What it looks like it conferences what it looks like with business dealings? What it looks like with Tina herself as well. A lot of questions being raised here in the states about what the NRA new and win about Russian efforts to influence U S politics. It's interesting because the. Nari presents itself as all American. It is the National Rifle Association and the national refers to the nation of the United States, but can anyone anywhere in the world. Join the NRA. So within reason anyone can attempt to join the NRA, but donations are a little bit trickier conjoined, but giving money to the RA's trick exact typically for political purposes. So if you're trying to influence an election from abroad as an NRA member that's not allowed. But if you just want to join and receive their reading material that isn't much easier thing to do and what we found out earlier this year. Because of a Senate inquiry is that there were in fact Russian nationals with rush new dresses that did have memberships to the NRA. The NRA, of course, advocates for the rights of gun owners to what extent are the interests of gun manufacturers? Also a factor in this trend. I think the interests of manufacturers you're very notable too the NRA because that is an extension of gun ownership. No, one will have a gun unless these companies are producing these firearms and one thing to really keep in mind here is that about a third of the American gun market is not actually all American. It's imports. And are there any numbers that we can put out there to contextualized this when we talk about the NRA's rising global reach. Absolutely. We can look at Beretta, which is a talion which pledged one million dollars to the RA starting in two thousand eight you can also look at Glock the Austrian company which also donate a really sizable amount and executives from those two companies are actually brought into the golden ring of freedom program, which is a part of the NRA. That's really reserved their mega donors, and if we look at a small that really notable donation, we should look at Brazil's. Torres with every firearm that's purchased United States. They give that firearm purchaser an NRA membership. So in twenty seventeen there were seven hundred sixty thousand tourists guns bought in America, that's seven hundred sixty thousand tourists purchased NRA. Memberships. Have you reached out to the NRA for comment on their global ambitions? We always do we have not heard back. Polly mawson's. She writes for Bloomberg. Thanks very much. Thank you. President Trump says his border wall is a fix for the country's broken immigration system. But the standoff to fund that wall has shuttered the very courts tasked with hearing immigration cases, some immigrants have waited years for court appearance, and until the partial shutdown ends they'll keep on waiting indefinitely. Jeremy McKinney is an immigration attorney. He's also a member of the American immigration lawyers association. Welcome to the program. Thank you very much. So how are you explaining this shutdown to your clients because I assume some aren't familiar with US policy may not know what's going on the wave we've explained it is to say that due to the government shutdown only detained cases are being heard. But there is a unprecedented backlog of about eight hundred thousand cases before they immigration court. And so right now the courts are only hearing a little more than five percent of cases that they could hear during this shutdown. Well, let me jump in here. So is this a phone call? That's like, hey, Jeremy. Panic, or is it like what do these calls sound like these calls sound like I'm supposed to get a decision on my Silom application on Thursday is that going to happen. And then I had to explain this case that has been going on for two and a half years will continue to go down the road to some unspecified date. It's a really tough conversation to have when that person and her minor children. Really don't know what the next chapter their lives is going to look like a lot of question marks. It sounds like these conversations. Right. So you're talking about this massive backlog. What does that mean for these cases right now? I mean, do they go to the back of the line? What happens here, we're not? Exactly, sure. Because we don't even know yet the exact number of hearings that had been cancelled we're waiting to hear about that. But for example, in in Charlotte, North Carolina that court is. One hundred percent non detained. And therefore, it is completely shut down hundreds of hearings have already been canceled to be rescheduled once the government reopens. I imagine that most of them will be moved to twenty twenty because the twenty nineteen docket is already full. How does this affect your clients daily lives in terms of their ability to plan for work or does it benefit them? In some cases. There is a resolution that is desired on both sides. The government many cases has an interest in quick deportations, certainly with this administration has stated in the past and my clients seek resolution of their case. And now that resolution is going to be prolonged by a year, in some cases, two years and other courts, it could be even longer. What's it like for you personally to hear this discussion coming out of Washington knowing that essentially the standoff is about? Immigration is about border security from what I hear both political parties in virtually every major politician in Washington is in favor of border security. It's all about what are we going to call it? Right. I believe Senator Graham referred to the wall the other day as a metaphor. So we're really shutting down over ninety percent of pending immigration cases. Over a metaphor. It offends me. Personally, the situation was already dire. And now this shutdown is just making it all the worse. Jeremy mckinney. He's an immigration attorney in North Carolina.
