"And the polls are laws. We can do both. The immigration debate involves fundamental issues of national security and economic growth. Republican lawmakers seeking to limit immigration Not to eliminate it altogether, say it will help keep the US safe and protect jobs for native born citizens. But economists, many associated with Democrats say increased immigration would boost economic growth currently weighed down by falling fertility rates. Today by emphasize the contributions immigrants have made to the United States. Noting his own family came from Ireland Generations ago, Biden said the coronavirus pandemic where immigrants helped save lives as front line workers. Scientists and researchers and the recent Mars rover landing, which was driven by a team full of immigrants proved his point. According to new research, more than 20% of college educated immigrants in the U. S, or some two million people are either unemployed or underemployed. Ross Brown has that story. Migration Policy Institute. The institute's new research shows many foreign trained professionals end up driving a taxi or doing janitorial work to make ends meet. The report was created with Lumina Foundation Support or spokesperson Courtney Brown says failing to use those talents result in devastating costs to workers and the nation were hurting. Individuals were hurting generations of individuals, the states' economies and the US economy's because we're leaving all this talent on itself. We are not valuing what they're bringing here. Brown notes that Health care worker shortage during the pandemic as an example, as the crisis worse in some states reduced licensing barriers to tap the skills of foreign trained experts, she says. While the results were mixed, the efforts brought the issue to light. Brown believes helping immigrants succeed as an urgent national priority. The US faces an estimated shortfall of eight million workers between now and 2027. Amid declining birth rates and an aging workforce. She sees immigrants as a primary source of future labor force growth. Black immigrants as well as black native born are more likely to be underemployed. So an immigrant, perhaps from the UK or white immigrant, that's foreign trained. Is not as likely to be underemployed as a black immigrant. In addition to race and ethnicity, the study found English proficiency and legal status are strong predictors of brain waste, Brown says Lost wages from train migrants are estimated at nearly $40 billion annually. And as a result, governments lose $10 billion a year in tax revenue. She hopes President Biden's immigration reform bill will prompt positive changes. Support for this reporting was provided by Lumina Foundation. This is Ross Brown. New Mexico News connection for an immigrant who is a victim of crime seeking justice can be especially difficult. Minnesota lawmakers are making that process easier and then move, supporters say removes a level of fear, Mike Mohan reports. Right? The federal government has a way for foreign nationals who have been victimized by serious crimes to protect their legal status if they cooperate with law enforcement. They can apply for what's known as a U visa designed to encourage them to come forward without fear of deportation or retaliation. But Vienna I wrote the Immigrant Law Center in Minnesota says there's been issues in seeing this component utilized around the state. One of the requirements for getting the U. Visa is a certification from law enforcement with regard to that cooperation, and unfortunately we've seen in Minnesota that there have been instances where law enforcement hasn't timely responded to those requests for certification. She says that delay can make survivors feel even more isolated in cases of domestic violence or human trafficking. New language included in a public safety spending bills sets deadlines for police to wish you a certification. Some GOP lawmakers questioned if this allows people to exploit the process. Supporters say there are safeguards Move coincides with the Biden administration step to provide work permits for those with a pending U visa application amid a massive backlog by your cites many reasons why it's been hard for law enforcement to issue these certifications. Putting a lack of understanding about the process, but she hopes this prompts more survivors to come forward and see their cases solved. Our hypothesis would be that over the next several years, this is going to be a really great tool for law enforcement and then, of course, also a really great protection for victims. In addition to setting deadlines, law enforcement agencies have to identify a point person for issuing certifications while implementing protocols for language access. The legislative effort was led by DFL representative Sandra Face to says it provides transparency and consistent timelines. The spending bill was expected to be signed by the governor.

"Enough or enforce protocols strictly enough or get additional help to workers who were barely keeping it together but we learned from that failure as we have from so many failures. And when the second wave again to crass this fall turned to winter provinces across canada were ready and prepared to defend our most vulnerable especially in on. No i'm sorry. I'm actually being told that. Ontario has led the exact same thing. Happen all over again and that long term care facilities are experiencing another more deadly wave of covid nineteen. So to put it bluntly what the hell happened in ontario. Why were so few of the lessons taught by the first wave implemented in the second. Why are we still struggling to protect. The people we know are at the most risk. And what could we have done to avoid this happening again. Jordan heath rawlings is the big story. Cynthia mulligan is queens park reporter for city news. She also our reporter at queens park. Hello cynthia before we get to. What's going on right now again. let's just start with the spring because you also covered that what happened to long term care facilities at the start of this well. Despite what we saw happening in europe and the knowledge that long-term care residents would be incredibly vulnerable. They were hit so very hard in the first wave and it was devastating to watch We know that many many died in the first wave. We lost eighteen hundred long-term care residents modeling shows in the second wave. We will lose two thousand six hundred so for many. The question is why. Didn't we learn anything from the first wave. In also during the first wave family members will not allow to go into the residences. They were desperate for communication. Those who were able to communicate with their loved ones found that they were declining rapidly. And then we had that devastating report from the canadian armed forces that went into assist in some long term care homes not only in ontario quebec as well and they detailed absolute pictures of horror Residents being forced fed not cared for properly Moaning and begging for help for hours on end before anybody could go in but now during the second wave jordan family members are allowed to go in in certain instances if they're essential caregivers in some homes out of the the so-called and they're seeing firsthand. What the military witnessed in the first wave and their their anguish and and what they describe is horrifying and very similar to what the canadian military found so it does bent the question. How come we haven't fixed this for the second wave. How is this still happening today in this province. Well yeah. I mean you mentioned the report. That was going to be my second question. It's not like we don't know where this was screwed up the first time in how bad it got right so like what. What could we have done. What could we have learned but clearly didn't we're in the first wave. The government was trying to save hospitals. It cleared them out to sixty four percent capacity and it almost seemed like long term care homes were completely forgotten. they weren't provided proper. P p right out of the gate a very long time before the chief medical officer of health determined that staff member should not work in more than one home because they'll carry spread carry code from home to home even though we knew that from sars a report from sars what seventeen years ago concluded that staff me to stay in one workplace otherwise in this kind of situation it will spread like wildfire because of stop unwittingly spreading spreading cove. It and yet it took a very long time it was weeks for on -tario to only two mandate that staff could only work in one home weeks behind me see by the way and if you look at it in the first wave ontario has some three times more residents seventy eight thousand residents in long term care. That's three times more than b. c. And yet we had many times more deaths because bbc lock down faster now in the second wave. We know what best practices are. We know that paid sick days for example. Everybody's calling for that men including some mayors. John tory patrick round bonnie crombie and yet. That's not being offered. And you have to remember. These are people long-term care workers. Don't make a lot of money. They're being reduced to working in long term care home so they're making even less money and they can't afford to stay home they just can't and if the choices between putting food on the table what are they supposed to do so hate. Six days is one one critical area rapid testing there needs to be rapid testing and long term care homes and training and hiring if you compare ontario and quebec. Their situations were very similar after the first wave in the summer in june quebec announced it was training and hiring ten thousand. Ps ws ontario waited until september twenty first to announce a recruitment. There was such a difference in how they responded. Quebec was far more aggressive and they trained about ten thousand by or their goal was ten thousand by september. They had five thousand additional workers in place with a salary pension and benefits. So tell me how this happens. that we know what we should do and and we haven't done it and this is one of those places because i know it's your job to cover this government cynthia but I don't wanna just put all the blame on them. Necessarily but i'm trying to figure out how we ended up because it seems so senseless to me so.

"I WANNA take a step back for a second because happened in that. Park on the weekend didn't happen. In Isolation Premier Ford has been relaxing endemic restrictions in Ontario and he's released a series of benchmarks that he says on -Tario has to meet for those restrictions to keep being loosen and we need to keep in mind that all of this is dependent on the numbers. The truth is we can't fully predict where things will go. So what are people in Ontario allowed to do at this point because every province is different? Okay so the key changes that were introduced last Tuesday after the Victoria Day. Weekend where that retail stores were open whereas previously they could only do the most curbside pickup non-essential retail stores could open customers. Could go inside the other major thing that happened on that Tuesday after the long weekend was that non essential construction could resume But also a whole bunch of Outdoor activities were allowed so provincial parks have been open now Dog Parks can be open. there are restrictions on the size of social gatherings the maximum. You can have people who are not from the same household and that's whether it's a private space for public space. The chief medical officer has been very clear in the guidance on social gatherings remains the same Ontario schools are not open in the schools are going to continue to to stay closed until the rest of the school year. So they're not gonNA open any earlier than September The only day cares that are allowed to run are some are very small in home daycares as well as the emergency daycares that for the children of frontline workers and all of this that has reopened was all contingent according to their premier that Ontario being able to keep the curve down planking that curve. How is that going in Ontario? Yeah so the. The big criteria that Ontario set out around when they would start lifting the restrictions was to see the daily number of new cases had steadily downward for at least two to four week period and that curve started heading down Roundabout the twenty second twenty fourth of April. That's when The daily number of cases peaked. And then it started coming down quite steadily through. Tila about May the eleventh may the twelfth and then very shortly after that may eleven to twelve period just seemed to just sort of flattened a little bit? So you're ending up with you. Know three hundred or so Cases every day in in the low three hundred and then the province announced the lifting of the of the restrictions. And what we've been seeing since. May the eleventh or twelfth though is that after little bit of a few days of plateauing it's been just going steadily upward and upward and upward now back to basically over the last week having an average of more than hundred cases a day and so that means that instead of continuing to go down. It's gone up since that may eleven may twelfth trough the latest number on On Sunday four hundred sixteen new cases. there's a couple of interesting key factors here about these cases that make it particularly troubling. Most of the cases are happening out in the community not in the outbreak sightings of long-term care which was responsible for the majority of the cases and Ontario through April. So that's a concern because it means that it is spreading outside of those Congress care settings the other one. Is that the bulk of the cases are in Toronto and the Greater Toronto area. Now people often think that okay. Well that's because everybody in Ontario is in in Toronto. Gpa right well. It's actually account for less than half of Ontario's population but as accounting for significantly more than half of the new cases. Were Up to you. Know almost seventy percent of the new cases are happening in Toronto in the GTI and so it's a concentrated pandemic that's happening in the Greater Toronto area. And it's all spreading the community and I should say when we talk about the Greater Toronto area the GT a Mississauga. Which is a city just very close to Toronto. Essentially just outside of Toronto. The mayor of Mississauga Bonnie. Crombie has said. Look it's too early to reopen. This is the tale of two pandemics in Ontario. Unfortunately we are the outliers which is why we must take this slow and steady while. I understand the desire to move forward as a province. I truly believe that we need to tailored regional approach for the GT Ha so. It's not all politician reopen there. There is some pushback against the Primera. In all of this isn't there. There's also been some pushback around the question of reopening the entire province at the same time. Here this is a a situation in which Prima Ford is out of step with his counterparts in Quebec and Alberta Premium League premium. Kenny who preferred respects quite highly. Both of them They have brought in different phase out of their restrictions in different parts of the province so in Quebec because the pandemic has been you know far far worse in the Montreal area than elsewhere in the province You saw schools and and chops and things reopening outside the Montreal area. I on another date change for the province. Premier Francois go now says elementary schools in the Montreal. Region will not reopen until September computed that the conditions are not met in Alberta Pre Kenny. Cap The restrictions on in Calgary and in Brooks where where they've been a number of infections in meat processing plants whereas the rest of Alberta was allowed to have more freedoms we are proceeding with the next phases hairstyling and barbershops will be permitted to reopening Calgary and Brooks this upcoming Monday and I'm hearing from people in lots of different regions who are wondering why the same restrictions need to be put on a place like Thunder Bay that is sixteen hundred kilometers away from Toronto. That only has you know enough cases that you can count them on your fingers and that the restrictions were loosened in the Greater Toronto area which accounts for the bulk of these four hundred and sixty new cases. You just heard.

"Well after. Nearly forty years of CO hosting hockey night in Canada's coach's Corner Don Cherry very has been fired. This old comes after comments. He made on Air Saturday. Cherry started going off about people who don't wear poppies on Remembrance Day. I live in Mississauga. Saga nobody wears a very few people. Where pop poppy downtown Toronto? Forget it downtown trying to nobody wears a poppy. kice had this. You go to the small cities and all you know those the rolls unrolls you. People love you either. Come here whatever it. Is You love our way of life. You love or milk and honey at least you could pay a couple of bucks for poppies or something like that. These guys pay for your way of life that you enjoy in Canada. Condemnation nation was well very swift and after an initial apology a second statement came Monday from Cherries employer. Rogers sports net. This time. They announced he was stepping down today. Scott Stinson a national sports calmness with post media is joining me. We're GonNa Talk Don Cherry and his controversial legacy seen this is from burner heist gone. Hey Jane area good thanks for doing being this estimate. I know it's been a busy day for you okay. So let's her here on Monday afternoon. This statement comes out from the President of sports net brought yobs Lee on twitter and it says sports brings people together unites us not divides US following further discussions with Don Cherry. After Saturday night's broadcast it has been decided it. It is the right time for him to immediately step down and then right after that statement comes out. Toronto Sun Columnist Joe. Warrington says he spoke with Cherry and he's not backing down. Here's the quote. I know what I said and I meant it. Everybody in Canada should wear a poppy to honor. Our fallen. Soldiers are emotional about all this. Or you're okay. This is the way to do it. Let me put this way if you if you could get fired by the Boston. Bruins art okay initial reactions here. Well I was surprised I guess at the speed with which this went down though not. I'm not surprised in the sense of That there was kind of an intractable position. Here what Cherry said the other night. was already like Swiss list. Lead denounced by both sports net. And even by Ron Maclean. Colo's Don Cherry made remarks which were hurtful discriminatory which were flat out wrong. Uh I owe you an apology to. That's the big thing that I want to emphasize I sat. There did not catch. It did not respond so after that happened Yesterday okay being Sunday. It seemed like well. Something's got to give. The either done chair is going to have to apologize or they're going to have to move on and I obviously asleep. He decided he did not WANNA walk back any part of what he said. And so we're left with what we have today. which is that? They're they're moving up just for people who are just coming to this story I just want to Parse through some of Cherries comments briefly. So I on Saturday night. He starts by saying that. The People in Mississauga in downtown Toronto. Don't wear poppies. Don't tell Tronto forget it downtown. Toronto and so what do you make of that. Well I think the implication it is that he's saying there are certain types of people that he doesn't see wearing poppies and when he says people in Mississauga and people in downtown Toronto. I think it's pretty. It clear that he's referring to people of different racial backgrounds and that was emphasized by the new people remark. And the you know who come from wherever. That's where you're going. Oh that's what the Eaton's right. When he went a little bit further in kind of drawing between people from elsewhere in people from here that made clear that he was talking about? And that's where the comments became particularly untenable. You people that come here you love our way of life you lovo milk and honey money at least you can pay a couple of bucks for poppies also talked about you know when you go to small cities small towns you see rows upon rows of poppy he is. What did you get from that again? You're sort of going you know he's he's saying with really coming out and saying that people from the suburbs look one way they don't wear where Bobby's but when I go to the small towns you know without actually saying where they're more white. That's where I see now. I just want to add to Jamie like I think. That's a ludicrous. Statement statement from a factual standpoint. Lots of people of any kind of color racial background. Whatever you WANNA say? Immigrants Immigrants who wear popping of course. He's roundly criticized is here right. Like mayor of Mississauga. Bonnie Crombie a mayor of Toronto. John Tory basically re iterating what you just said like. What is this guy talking about? He has no idea what he's talking commode questioning the devotion of newer immigrants to this country. Please apologize to new Canadians. Who are very proud? New Canadians at are also a very proud of the rich history of of our veterans and proud that they came to Canada because of the rights and freedoms we all enjoy. And that's why they chose us and this also struck a chord because so how many people of color including indigenous people have fought for Canada particularly in the first and Second World War. Yeah I mean this is part of where the story is particularly uncomfortable because there are all sorts of examples of people of different backgrounds people different races. Who have had you know? Frankly much more involving Canadian military than Don Cherry ever had and he is he is very much been a spokesman and advocate for them and that is all admirable stuff but the idea That you have to have had some specific in you know frankly if they have a poppy on your sleeve or on your lapel to show your support for the Canadian military. Oh Terry is ludicrous. Because any number of people could have sacrificed their own. Well being put themselves forward have family members doing that kind of thing and can you can be from any background.
