"It's monday time to pay the gangs. I'm bill newman and this is the civil liberties minute. That's the beginning of a recent piece about honduras by sonia's r._e._o. In the new york times that went on to report that the gangs of honduras extract an estimated twenty three million dollars per year from the owners of anything that has wheels this is a deadly serious business emphasis on deadly quote since two thousand ten more than one thousand five hundred hondurans working in transportation had been murdered shot strangled cuff to the steering wheel and burned alive while they're buses are torched and quote and the gangs are taking more steps steps to fully take over the police the courts and the congress the article disputes president trump's position that sending any money to central america is a waste of money money and explains how the money can be well and effectively spent by funneling it to honduran civil society groups instead of to the government that is indeed did horrifyingly infected by corruption and violence the article concludes by saying that such aid an involvement will require a long-term term ten or twenty year commitment quote but in the end it will be far cheaper and more humane to fund change in honduras than to spend the billions locking up asylum seekers at our borders.

"The supreme court has ruled that a towering forty foot tall Christian cross may remain on public land in bland, his Berg, Maryland. I'm Bill Newman. And this is the civil liberties minute, it's hard to reconcile this recent supreme court decision called American Legion versus American humanist association with the first amendment guaranteeing a wall of separation between church and state. The supreme court prior to this has consistently ruled that the establishment clause prohibits any governmental action that favours one religion over another.

They contain graphic accounts of prisoners being tortured burned raped sodomized stabbed and murdered in unsupervised dormitories. I'm Bill Newman. And this is the civil liberties minute, the just quoted New York Times article went on to report that Alabama prisons are lousy with corruption rife with drugs and sharp knives. They are crammed full of inmates holding two to three times their maximum capacity. And the prisons are way understaffed officers often stand behind a barricaded secure area Intel inmates who have fled to them looking for safety to go. Get a knife torture in Alabama prisons is not legal or constitutional. But it is and has been facilitated condone sanctioned and accepted these conditions continue because people on the outside generally pay little or no attention proving the max. Mm-hmm. That prison walls are men as much to keep the public and the press out as they are to keep the prisoners in.

"In New Hampshire. Governor Christie new has announced that he will veto the Bill to abolish capital punishment in his state, but I'm Bill Newman. And this is the civil liberties minute, but in both the house and the Senate the Bill in New Hampshire to abolish capital punishment passed by large veto proof majorities seventeen to six in the Senate and two hundred seventy nine to eighty eight in the house of representatives. So the Bill is expected to be enacted into all over the governor's veto the passage of the Bill to end capital punishment will make New Hampshire the twenty first state to abolish the death penalty and bills to abolish limit. The death penalty are pending in eighteen more states this year and additional states have imposed a moratorium on executions the death penalty as we all know is racist and expensive and ineffective and makes no one safer and rips apart the fabric of our society. It also makes mistakes. Resulting in the conviction and execution of innocent people. So congratulations to New Hampshire on this victory. For commonsense for safer communities, and for you, Mandy, and for providing more sustenance to the abolitionist movement and more proof that the death penalty in America is dying not quickly enough. But it is the civil liberties minute is made possible by the ACLU because freedom can't protect itself.

"On election day two thousand eighteen and overwhelming majority of voters in Florida sixty five percent approved a state constitutional amendment to restore the right to vote to most people who have been convicted of felonies and completed their sentence. And now, I'm Bill Newman. And this is the civil liberties minute, even though that constitutional amendment called amendment four with supposed to automatically go into effect on January eighth and allow former felons to register to vote. Just like everyone else the new governor. Rhonda Santa's has claimed that amendment four can't take effect until the legislature, which doesn't even meet till March approves implementing language advocates dispute that pointing to the fact that nothing in the constitutional amendment itself indicates that any legislation is required. Although some local election officials who control voter rolls and procedures may be swayed by the governor's statement in November two thousand eighteen more than five million Floridians voted in favor of amendment four on that same. Action day one and a half million Floridians the majority of whom are white and included twenty three percent of the African American community were not allowed to vote because of that state's felony disenfranchisement rule that amendment four repealed and reversed the constitutional amendment and the overwhelming support for it means it's time it's past time for the right to vote to be honored in the sunshine state.

"Can Donald Trump in the name of national security impose a tariff on peanut butter? I'm Bill Newman. And this is the civil liberties minute in late December at a hearing before the three judge panel of the United States court of international trade, the department of Justice's lawyer was asked this question which arose in the case filed by steel importers, challenging Trump's imposition of tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. Here's the constitutional conundrum. The constitution gives congress not the president the power to lay and collect taxes duties imposts and excises imposts is a good scrabble word, meaning tax and duty and excises means an internal tax think gasoline cigarettes, alcohol excise taxes, but in nineteen sixty two congress passed the trade expansion act of nineteen sixty two which gives the president the authority to fix tariffs when necessary to protect America's national. Security in the past in general, the supreme court has allowed congress to transfer. It's a thirty to the executive branch. However, this case could cross the line after all at the hearing, the government's attorney evaded the question on peanut butter because the short answer, it seems from the government's perspective is yes, enjoy that PB and J sandwich.

"Now who will police the police I'm Bill Newman? And this is the civil liberties minute in nineteen Ninety-four congress authorized, the United States Department of Justice to change the behavior of local police departments that had routinely engaged in unconstitutional, civil rights violations by using excessive force and engaging in racist practices, and or conducting unreasonable searches and seizures and misusing the power of arrest and for some years, and with some success, the DOJ used this authority through the use of court monitored consent decrees, essentially injunctions, but former attorney general Jeff Sessions oppose these decrease because according to sessions, they hurt the feelings and morale of officers and in a last-minute act just before Trump fired him sessions sharply curtail the use ineffectiveness of these consent decrees there will be far far fewer interventions by DOJ, far less oversight. Right and for much shorter. Periods of time sessions rule his memorandum stands as departmental policy. And so the answer to the question now who will police the police is maybe some state's attorneys-general or some local authorities. But certainly not the civil rights division of what is called the department of Justice. The civil liberties minute is made possible by the ACLU because freedom can't protect itself.

"In the new book insane America's criminal treatment of mental illness. The author OSA Roth makes the point that the country's largest mental health providers are neither hospitals nor clinics, but rather prisons and jails, I'm Bill Newman, and this is the civil liberties minute. Prisons in jails, where the mentally ill are warehoused locked up without access to proper treatment and abused and punish in ways that make their sickness worse. Sometimes much worse, think solitary confinement which Amnesty International defines as torture. Of course, having a mental illness in no way predicts that a person will end up in the criminal Justice system that's just plain wrong. But a person who ends up in the criminal Justice system may well have a mental illness or drug dependency. Indeed, twenty thirty forty sometimes even fifty percent of the men or women locked up in a so-called correctional facility suffer from a mental illness. Roths book does offer a sliver of hope by. Chronicling, criminal Justice, mental health diversion programs, those diversion programs work. They dramatically reduced homelessness and ER visits and police costs and the number of needed jail beds. But these programs are few and far between which leads Roth. To conclude that quote, we not only are failing the people behind the razor wire and their families, but failing ourselves as well.

"Thank you pope Francis. I'm Bill Newman, and this is the civil liberties minute. Pope. Francis has declared as part of the catechism of the Catholic church that the death penalty is an attack on Uman dignity, that the death penalty is wrong in all cases and that the church will work with determination to abolish it worldwide. There are many reasons to oppose state-sponsored executions, in addition to its immorality, the system that decide who lives and who dies is completely arbitrary, the race of the victim and the defendant and the place of the crime and the quality of legal representation determines who lives and who dies the system results in the government, executing innocent people. Capital punishment does not deter crime and ultimately brings no or little solace to a victim's family and it brutalizes all of us who are complicit in allowing it to continue in our name. These are some of the reasons that one hundred and forty countries in the world have abolished the death pen. As a matter of law or as a matter of fact, the countries that continue to carry out executions are China Iran Iraq Yemen and the United States of America which brings to mind the adage that person or country may be known by the company. It keeps. Civil liberties minute is made possible way ACO because freedom can't project itself.

"Workers in America have suffered a grave. Defeat. I'm literally Ledbetter, and this is a civil liberties minute with ICS l. u. attorney Bill Newman in the Justice, sided Janice case. The supreme court five to four decreed the members of the union who choose not to join, but who receive all of the benefits of membership. The pay, the representation have the right to receive all those benefits for free. They get a free ride if they wanted, and there is nothing the union or the other union members can do about that. Some commentators have described Janice as a conservative decision, but that characterization is wrong. Conservative. In the lexicon in tradition, of course, means respect for and adherence to previous decisions. It's called starry decisiveness and it's a venerable legal principle. The Janice decision is not conservative, if throws out story, decisive it overrules and over forty year old case that has been affirmed in the years since. A decision that was unanimous when it was made in nineteen seventy seven. What has changed is not the law. What has changed is the composition of the court. The Janice case erases a significant part of the power of the collective voice of public sector workers. With this decision workers have suffered a grave defeat. There's just no way around that conclusion. They sell. The liberties minute is made possible by the ICU because freedom can't protect itself.
