Biden slips into political quicksand amid Haitian migrant buildup

"Starting off the show. Tonight we have a discussion about joe biden. Apparently he's doing more deportations than trump specifically deporting more asylum seekers than trump did well. Yeah we don't have the other categories of deportations as the numbers that That we came across. And it's a shocking number. I don't know the entire number. But i have here the us Moved over six thousand. Haitian asylum-seekers from the border at del rio so that's just haitian asylum-seekers just recently with you know the whip's did see that. Oh i saw that very scary stuff. There was ice agents. I guess they're ice. Sported patrol agents. Scroll on horseback whipping people catalyst. Yeah like cadillac. Wrangling them with whips and hitting them with the long whip. It looked incredibly frightening and in and scary to be in that situation with a bunch of armed men on horses attacking people who are just trying to escape the hellish life of living in haiti. And do you think the biden voters expected this to happen because the people on the left like biden love to position themselves as the friend of the immigrants they acted like trump was the worst for immigration and right immigration. I mean right. When joe biden got elected like somebody. I know got a deportation letter. Just and they're telling him oh. It's been a lot worse recently under biden. They told him that his friends sorry like his friends. That like is also a legal immigrant. Types may know some other people like that well according to the same place that you're looking here. It's says twitter account. Aj plus they're citing cnbc saying that biden is using what's called title forty two to expel asylum-seekers without a right to a hearing so you know what asylum is right. Yeah when you leave somewhere that is you're gonna die there or they're gonna put you in prison for the rest of your life or thereafter you for for whatever reason and the numbers here are just shocking. According to cnbc under trump and remember trump had four full years. And we're not even through year number one biden four hundred and forty th over four hundred. Forty thousand people were Were expelled under this title. Forty two during the trump administration and six hundred ninety thousand have been expelled under the biden administration under title forty two so that's a tremendous level of increase because if if biden is able to keep up the same amount over the next three years. Yeah he'd be like twenty four hundred weight. It was six hundred ninety thousand right now so yeah that'd be well over two million people well so you know that is just absolutely horrifying because these people if they are indeed being prosecuted or persecuted. They're going to be sent back to likely their deaths or likely to a prison cell. Yeah it's probably worse for you if you try to leave and then they find out about that absolutely it is. Let's see there's other story here from cnbc biden. Administration appeals judges order. This is from less than a week ago to stop. Expelling migrants under trump era pandemic policies. So there was a judge who said they need to stop using title forty. Two and biden is appealing so this is yet another example of how joe biden is more like trumpy than the trump haters thought. That trump was like people hated trump for all these different reasons and biden has continued trump's policies and crank them up. Yeah my friend. Sent me this weird video of biden today. It was him when he was younger. You know he. He's always been in government office. So i don't know what his title was at the time but he was being interviewed. Probably a senator or something. Yeah and he was saying he was saying. What do people think. I care more about bosnia than haiti because it's white people in bosnia and it's you know black people in haiti and then he just went on and said well if haiti sank into the ocean. I wouldn't care just like that was his answer to that was like what is that supposed to mean. Well i'll tell you clear what it means. It means he has no empathy right to say that about another an entire group of people living somewhere on the planet to say they just if they just all died one day he would have no concern whatsoever for that and you juxtapose that against what he says while he's running for office which is to make himself seem like this all caring. Oh the democrats we care about people that's clearly. Bs tel aviv From penn and teller thought he was going to heal us all with his love. Is that what taylor said. Y- you read that on the show. It was numbered teller's lider new saying let pendulum but tell her was going along with pen from what i could see. So presumably teller didn't disagree otherwise he wouldn't have been in the photo op. Yeah just mixed them up. Sorry according to the story here. Cnbc biden administration appealing. A judge's order to stop using a trump era pandemic policy that allows for the rapid expulsion of migrants without giving them a chance to apply for asylum. So they're using covert as the excuse. The departments for his just cove it. That's why we had to have horseback riders with the because of it. It's just you covered. The department of justice filed an appeal of district. Judge emmet sullivan's ruling thursday bars. The federal government from expelling migrants under the public health law known as title. Forty two sullivan. The ruling to go into effect in fourteen days the appeal is the latest move by the bided administration to address the twenty year high surge of migrants from mexico and central america crossing the border illegally which remains a political flashpoint between republicans and progressive democrats title forty two is first introduced by donald trump in march of twenty twenty over concerns about the corona virus pandemic. It gave the government the power to turn back any migrant caught crossing the border illegally regardless of their country of origin to supposedly stop cove nineteen. So if you had managed to escape from north korea and you made it to the united states which is no easy task. Mind you. it's one thing to get here from haiti or guatemala. Or duress or something. It's a whole other story to get here from north korea. But if he'd managed to and they caught. You did it cover. Nineteen you gotta go back to north korea and you back to north korea where you would certainly either be put into a hellish prison labor camp and then of course all your family members have probably already been put into a prison labor camp. Because that's what they that's how they roll over north korea. If you try to escape or you do something bad. They punish your whole family for it. So you know you're going to prison and it's going to be like the worst possible prison labor camp experience basically on the planet right now if they don't just go right ahead and just summarily execute you but this quote from a man at the border a haitian man with two children.

She fell in love with an American soldier and moved to the US decades later, she learned that most of her family in Bosnia had died together near their home as she told the U. S.

Why Black Officers Find Breach Of U.S. Capitol Particularly Upsetting

"Law enforcement officers were overpowered by that violent mob in the nation's capital. Last week. Disturbing videos show that police officers were kicked and punched and beaten with flagpoles. One police officer was killed and another later died by suicide off duty. But there were also a few police officers that appeared to sympathize with the mob. MPR's Leila Fadel reports that for current and retired black police officers It was particularly upsetting. Last week sharing Blackman Malloy watched her former colleagues try to stave off Attackers of the capital alone. Black officer heroically facing a largely white mob as they first breach the building. A lot of them felt like they were all all along black when Malloy is a retired U. S Capitol police officer and the vice president of the United States Black Capitol Police Association. Which led a class action lawsuit in 2012 against the Capitol police for alleged discrimination. She's also the lead plaintiff in the historic 2001 class action discrimination lawsuit against the Capitol Police board. Our organization is calling for criminal charges against the sergeant at arms of the House and the Senate, as well as the former U. S. Capitol police chief who resigned after the attack because they loved them unprepared. She spoken to black police officers that were at the Capitol that day. They're traumatized. Some of the crowd called him the n word. Some are injured. They're also scared because they saw a few of their white colleagues show sympathy with the mob. Several Capitol police officers were suspended as the department investigates the attack on Congress, among them the officer who took Selfies with writers and another who popped on a mag, a hat and directed Attackers around the building. Blackman. Malloy says black Capitol police officers told her this about inauguration Day and then now you expect me to go stand beside an officer not knowing whether or not he's one of one of the terrorists, that's what that's what we did. Then Maybe there were some off duty police officers from outside D. C in the crowd. Police departments are investigating, and that's not lost on so many police officers around the country, particularly black police officers who faced discrimination on the force. Carl Shaw sued the police division of the city of Columbus for racial discrimination and settled for $475,000. You have good police also said you have actually saucers, and in my case, if it wouldn't have been for white officers standing up and risking their careers, wouldn't have had a leg to stand on. I just think we need to change the way we police and the hiring practices. Also the settlement, which conceded no wrongdoing included to demand that the retaliation he faced for reporting racism by superior be a fireable offense. Char retires next month. If you're trading black officers this way, What are you doing to the general public? Heather Taylor, recently retired sergeant from the ST Louis Police Department was texting with other black officers as she watched the attack on Congress. She thought about many of our fellow officers who made the assumption that Trump flags meant support for law enforcement, even when the crowds were incited by the president's lies and included hate groups. Meanwhile, black lives matter. Protestors demanding racial justice were treated as hostile. I don't know maybe realize that these people who are extremists who are militia Who are a part of these groups or about civil war. They want civil war They want to do away with the government and law enforcement has hair to him. Taylor most recently headed the Ethical Society of Police, a ST Louis police organization that addresses racial discrimination in the police force and the community. Okay, well, they're gonna shake I'm going to say that these people are going to turn on them that the police are going to see that the same people that you supported over African Americans in black lives matter. You're going to see that it's different that they're going to turn on you. Sure enough, it was worse than what we could ever imagine. In Minneapolis Metro Transit Police chief Eddie Frizzell says he did more planning for the Super Bowl in Minneapolis than what he saw in the capital last week. Now he worries about the expected armed protests around the country. This weekend. I served in Bosnia bright after the war to orange n aside, had taken place and we've seen what tyrannical regime will do to a country in Iraq. And all those experiences are all coming to a head right now. It gives me a frame of reference to take my experiences, and we have to actually apply them to the unknown that we're experiencing right now known that we're experiencing right now. Leila Fadel NPR

On EU's doorstep, UN raises alarm for thousands of young migrants sleeping rough

"Whatever. Two and a half thousand migrants and refugees have been forced to sleep rough in bosnia herzegovina for several weeks on the european union's doorstep despite the fact that suitable sheltered accommodation is available in an interview with you and uses daniel johnson. Peter our chief of mission in bosnia for the migration agency describes the of trying to find a quick solution to this urgent problem. You also explains why it's so important at all. Countries abide by their international commitments to helping vulnerable people in line with the global compact for safe or leeann regular migration adopted by majority of u n member states in december two thousand and eighteen years ago has been a transit country for migrants from greece trying to reach other parts of the european union. Since dan rea two thousand eighteen we've had a perennial problem of a lack of accommodation in bosnia herzegovina. Each window reface seamer thought john just but this year to challenge is actually larger because we have two thousand five hundred eight thousand five hundred refugees in bossier to gopinath sleeping in inhuman conditions. The reason for this is the ability of bosnian political system. If you want to decide where accusations should be because ironically or or cynically she won't. We actually do have sufficient spaces in two centers that we could open within twenty four hours but because a political resistance at the local level do locations. Dc's not happy so it's not a matter of the seasons. It's not a matter of money but it is a matter of political decision-making which obviously now he's ready urgent because the winter conditions are getting worse as we speak so you say that there's a problem of administrative procedure and there's also local opposition to housing the migrants. So that's a very difficult position for you to be in but as you say. The immediate problem is is really urgent. Because it's so cold and the camp that to the emergency count the leaper. Emergency tent camp burned down after being closed because it wasn't suitable for migrants didn't have electricity water. So what exactly is the un migration agency managing to do to help these people well. We're certainly pursuing a two track approach if you like the one we have increased our humanitarian assistance to people sleeping outside interest jackets winter. I sleeping bags sold packages we to get our partners. The danish refugee council and requested try to cover everyone while he's somehow reducing human suffering. Eat obesity does not provide an answer to the need for human accommodation while the other part of the work. We're trying to do trying to support the authorities at different levels to come together and to build a consensus as to where these new accusation could be. So these are the two efforts. But you're sort of stuck in as a un agency in the sense that while we have the resources it's not to or any other un agency to decide where my accusations should be that he's really up to the sovereign country in this case. Both here to go now to decide. I can just go to building erica. Dc sanal migrant accusations so. We're very much dependent on the local political process in while you can support while he can bringing ideas while driving people to get at the end of the day. You're dependent on local. Political decisions has the opposition to migration and migrants in bosnia. Been growing is it. I mean we're not talking about tens of thousands of people by any means are we know we're talking about today. In the county i would estimate about eight thousand five hundred. Marcus enrich In the country of three point five million inhabitants. That should not. I mean that he's not a a a large crisis by any stretch of the imagination There are two issues their first modern stint be located in two parts of the country canceling saudi avoid sonic canton and the frustration specifically again. He's as so being left alone in not heavy as sort of a national strategy. Few michael spreading these accusations center south across the country when it comes to the local population licenses. Debtors small minority that. He's very vocal on facebook older social media channels sometimes using a very phobic language my senses however that if you look at the majority of people they may not have wanted bosnia to become a country for transit migration but they do agree that while the migrants should be our country that they should be taken care of properly absolutely an just wondering what it is that the un migration agency needs to happen. Obviously you want to relocate migrants and for the most part they young men on the where are they from well in terms of the solution. The solution is relatively straightforward from humanitarian operational perspective. We need additional accusation in structures that are adequate ford winter. I think that's in terms of the solution where we need to go in terms of the makeup of the mike and refugee population. Here we have about eighty percents single males and twenty percent families with children and unaccompanied children usually boys between sixteen and eighteen for these families and children. We have sufficient activation so we don't have any families children or unaccompanied or separated children sleeping outside. The challenge faces itself with the single males in terms of nationalities. Biggest group Bangladesh of ghanistan north africa in iraq. He's the makeup of the population that we go have here. I'm what do they tell you. These these young men. Why have they come to europe. Well they've gone to europe of course. Individual circumstances differ but most of them have come to europe to look for a life somewhere fleeing conflict in afghanistan but many of them are looking simply to go to placing within the european union.

National Native American Veterans Memorial opens in Washington, DC

"Opens today on the National Mall in Washington, D C. It's the Native American Veterans Memorial. Native Americans have served in the armed forces in high numbers for more than a century. This is the first memorial to honor that service. Here's NPR's Quil Lawrence. The memorial is simple. A steel circle elevated over carved stone drum. It sits in the shade of the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian Kevin Go over, is a member of the Pawnee Nation and the museum's director. It's an article of faith in Indian country that Native American serve at a greater rate than basically any other group. So we wish for this to be a sacred place, not just for Native America. But for all Americans. The opening ceremony went virtual because of the pandemic. But here are a few of the people go over hopes will one day attend and sanctify the site. My name is Marcel Grande La Bull. And I'm from the two kettle ban of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe. You know? I'm 101 years old. No in 1940 for Marcela Lobo was a surgical nurse at an Army hospital during the battle of the Bulge Well, In December. I believe it was 1/16 of December. The Germans overtook the American soldiers. They wondered about putting in a hospital so close to the front lines, but they did. So we were there in leisure. And we had both funds night and day. At the time of the breaks through the growth of the bulge. Lobo says her own community always honored her military service. Now the memorial in Washington means the whole country conduce this same to be AH, thought like it was a great honor. My ancestors were warriors. I'm related to rein in the face who fought in the battle of the little big horn or greasy grass that they called it. My father was a Spanish American war veteran. My brother oldest brother was a veteran all down the line. But some native vets aren't as aware of their own family service. Yeah, my name is Colonel Wayne Don don has served 27 years in the army, including Bosnia and Afghanistan. You know, for a lot of years, I thought I was a first generation military person came to find out is both of my grandfather and uncles. And served in a territorial guard during World War two. That was an emotional discovery for dawn and a complicated one not just native Americans, but on the other minority groups, ultimately that they chose to serve to represent their people. And also to serve a country that this, you know, sometimes. Didn't have AH would've proved to be their best interests in mind, but they're still still did it, He says. Now that the country is wrestling with questions about racial justice, he hopes the memorial can play a part. Army vet Allan Ho feels the same. He's native Hawaiian saw combat in Vietnam. Then his two sons served after 9 11, his oldest son. Nine. No. Ho was killed in Iraq and he wass Credible young man. He was an officer, platoon leader, and he was killed in 25 in Mosul, Iraq. His younger brother's the staff sergeant. His name is Locke or And the meaning for a knock or is a warrior who is brave and courageous. Those are the stories of service and sacrifice. He wants Americans to hear it. The new memorial for native visitors, Ho wants it to be a validation and an inspiration. And then perhaps, who knows? Maybe some young Native son who experiences that memorial for this first time, we'll be in 50 years from now he'll be that the president of the United States who knows Quil Lawrence NPR news

Then trying to figure out what your picture is meaning when you roll all of those problems up off the higher level.

We do what we can there's no money will find some let's do something interesting that they can work with. Where do we need the citizens? What is it that we tell them and what is it that they give them and and and in Bosnia-Herzegovina normal thing is that these parties print a lot of off there along with some pencils on lighters or whatever and that's something that what is cool about it is the people who really like those especially in our lighters and what is interesting is that you get that and then if you smoke and you put it on the table and everybody sees off and that's a commercial For Those ads for the four people who actually looking at I think so because it's I don't know if you're familiar with the phrase swag in the US stuck can't get that's what it is and people love it and that's when it's cool off.

"Dead within their parties to change that those polling people who who know only one way how to play politics and say you've seen from history of what that way can actually do to Country like Yugoslavia then in Bosnia-Herzegovina, no, So anyway, I I recall with fondness that event. just because it is something that I was hoping at the very beginning of the campaign my campaigning 2018 that such things would actually happen when people would start making up its I'm thinking about people in the country rather than themselves trying to use the system as opposed to who gave to the system and just one final one and it's looking down the road a little bit but do you feel it? I'm guessing it is incumbent upon you when the results come in about measuring what is successful or what is not thousand people or you know, it's like okay. We only we won this many we're on top of the world. We didn't do this. I mean, there's going to have to be some dealing with emotions as to what how the thing is measured when it plays out. Yeah, well I have I had one experience from 2018 when we did extremely extremely young people and realistically expected that it's possible to win at that point. I thinking it's going to be a later on would be different story home. So I had to go back after the television interview to support yourself and basically home. Cheer them even though you were I was not invited shift for good at that point. So this time I'm by you feel like you're prepared for anything to celebrate or to say this and given the circumstances. We did our best of it so we could put it down many things. Now. We know that we need to change to differently start planning earlier build this infrastructure. Let's get to work with whatever happens. Beautiful result or or not so much. In either case you just have to keep going into better next time and keep learning so there will be no. No time for excessive celebration or sorrow no matter what happens. You basically just note it down. So this is what happened. How can this help us? Do better next time and just keep going. It's It is good. It's excellent. I'm really grateful that there is an idea that people embraced in there ready to run with them. And I think that is the key. We have to believe that it's possible and these Journeys going to be long I filled but it is going to be very rewarding. I know that the end will be rewarding if everything happens the way we wanted but even this journey, but it's uncertain even though we believe fully but it's uncertain given the immensity of the forces against us. By the one that is still computer for Germany. So I talked about that. That's an exciting time. I mean it's to see what this next how this next chapter of the journey plays out here in the next month or so, but it's it's fascinating..

Well kid, there were a lot of subtleties and that's what real Ruckus it's all about separating the chaff from the wheat, but the obvious messages will be rehashed over and over the fowl obvious things that were said by Mister Trump and mr. Biden you can catch on your podcast and mass media and and wherever you take in your news, but what I'm going to do is I'm gonna forget about my fact-checkers and forget about my constitutional historical professors and I'm going to talk about one key message.

Okay with all and I've just said talking to mr. Crum and the back of your head. The question comes out. Why vote now, this was something that was it was his life on by both the president and the vice president. Mr. Trump and mr. Biden. So I I asked a question. Why vote most of us walk around in a naively Elevate wage state of impunity. No one is going to forcibly tell us what to do or limit where we can go. Nobody is going to kick down our door or drain our bank account. But this moment in time there is a raised awareness of civil rights now hang in with me on this because I'm bringing it all to him ahead to a point. This might be illustrated by peaceful protest wage. The civil rights that is these folks would declare their First Amendment right of freedom of speech now, if you're pro-nra, then you might cite the Second Amendment of the Constitution the right page. To bear arms these and many other protections come from a piece of paper the Constitution and yet if not enforce the Constitution becomes meaningless Le meaningless still may I ask you to question? Why vote if we allow the provisions of the Constitution to be ignored just once and only a single part because we agree with the ideology and other people in charge at any given moment in time, then you might as well start a racing aspects of the Constitution that you and they don't agree with thus rendering our constitutional democracy damaged again, I ask why vote a damaged and ignored Constitution like a bad case of poison oak may seem superficial at first but not burn that poison oak and inhale the smoke what was once superficial is now internal and damaging your lungs the problem, is that a damaged Constitution like damaged lungs Mekong. Around for a long time without a quick fix the question why vote now evolves into who do you vote for? Who do I put in a position of power? Well Article 2 of The Constitution is impossibly vague about the president's Powers. But if we were to look back over the past one hundred years there would be no denying an increase in what are called executive powers powers that bypass Congress you would see that presidents during that hundred year. Ruled by executive power rather than by Consulting with off and getting approval by the Constitution as a constitution says and with these executive powers, they direct a massive administrative state with jurisdiction over everything from Environmental Policy to regulation of the airwaves throughout the last hundred years presidents of waged undeclared war without Congressional confirmation. This would include Harry Truman in North birth. Korea President Richard Nixon and Cambodian President Bill Clinton in Bosnia Franklin Roosevelt imprisoned over 100,000 Americans during World War II numerous presidential called in federal troops to suppress working-class inserections, which ended in American death recently President George W bush secretly authorized spying on Americans inside the United States without any review from the courts these unregulated Powers accrue overtime and remain as a part of the Office of the President Bush is why it's important to not just vote but to examine who you are voting for and perhaps asking how will they address these unopposed Powers executive powers off then a constitution and political scholars believe there is a very real chance of our democracy failing In Our Lifetime with tyranny taking his place. That means somebody could kick in your wage. Or somebody could drain your bank account. Someone could tell you when and where you can go the fourth President of the United States. I was James Madison said factions formed public opinion spreads quickly particularly on issues that evoke ideology and passion people become polarized and look for opinions that mirror existing beliefs and isn't that where we are now as a country as people forming ideology based on passion and political opinions that mirror existing beliefs, so I say vote and vote carefully because a person you put in power maybe the first nail in the coffin of our constitutional democracy think about it off and remember question conventional wisdom, and don't believe everything you think.

Where do we stand with this? Well. There was a lot of excitement that the united. States was getting involved in this process a couple of years ago. There was a sense Washington really wants it's gets are. Big International Agreement. This was going to be one of trump's moments of glory. That was going to get reelected. And so there was a lot of activity that was going on. By the United States role, the separate from the e U process switch continuing as you've noted since two thousand eleven. But recently it's basically collapsed in this collapse for number of reasons one because they would charges brought against the presidents of Kosovo. For War Crimes but also I think that we just up against the clock in the United States Rick. Grenell the US ambassador to Germany, who was handling this?

What what transpired? The the problem as Well. There's a whole range of problems. As again as you noted as being a range of agreements have been put in place over the past, a number of years most which haven't really been observed, but there's also been deep divisions within the European Union about what they want. Now there's been a number of proposals being coming forward a nice been suggestions that the President Sukasto vote and Serbia. Actually at one point very close to a deal, but controversially that would include some so the territorial swap and we know that Germany in actual fact Britain as well a very very opposed to this. The. Americans on the other hand seem to be open to the idea although they seem to be a rowing buckle now now. I'm so the probably essentially have is that we need a big picture secondments here and the Europeans have been pressing so small normalization agreements, which is all very well and good boots. As I'm saying I worked Cypress pathetic years, and these small agreements, a justice difficult to get into place, and even more typical in many ways to implement than actually spending time focusing on a big picture final deal, and so I think this is the real question about half now. Is it going to be back to try to get these piecemeal agreements that don't really work or all week in the focus on the big picture? Final settlements. Will really put this issue behind both Kosovo. and Serbia and of course that question becomes very urgent, because it looks as if the leaders of Serbia in Kosovo will meet face to face in Brussels later this week. Yes I'm I mean to be honest with you? I don't think anyone's really expecting that. We can see any big breakthroughs now. and I again. I'm I'm very very skeptical that you're really even knows what it wants. the IT could be a return to these sort of. These small bitsy talks which you don't get me wrong. These are important things that needs to be doubts which will make long foot for people in costumes survey much better. But like a Lotta people a my view is the you sold. If they were the big picture deal, anyway and so what you're doing is many ways wasting time on energy block treasurer on all these trying to get these small agreements, which in the end don't really get implemented because that fundamental big picture agreement so. I I think the big problem here is that it's it's. Europe's coming at the wrong way. I mean Europe officials as saying that resolution is the only way that Serbia and Kosovo seek to become members of the EU. Do you think that that's a big enough incentive? Well. I mean I. Get sent certainly in Kosovo there is. A growing realization something needs to be done so often. Votes Clayton dependency. The was that we go from. There was a we've got. The Americans behind US rebuilt the British the French recalled Germans. They're going to go out and tell. The world recognized Kosovo and in the first few years. That seems to be what was happening and we got to a point where about one, hundred ten or hundred thirteen of the one hundred ninety three members of the UN recognized. Kosovo But Russia and China refuse to recognize it, so that prevents full you and membership, but what we've seen in the past couple of years is Serbia's lobbied countries to withdraw that recognition of Kosovo is now recognized about ninety seven countries so I think in Prishtina this realization if we want to join the UN if we want to be a normal, fully accepted country on the world stage, we've got to reach a final deal with Belgrade. What is it that we? We can offer Belgrade. The Belgrade might be willing to accept. The trump is what it sink. President Sanctuary was willing to offer Belgrade's. The German said No. We're not willing to allow it to go that far because if you stop changing borders between Serbian, Kosovo. Even if this is consensual, you'll not problems north Macedonia and Bosnia so we we have a fundamental problem here of how we're going to deal with something that frankly speaking could be dealt with sally easily. If, there was sort of coincidence abuse amongst the Americans, the Europeans, subs and the Kosovo Albanians James. Thank you very much? Indeed, that's James Collins.

I mean are you still crafting some messages or responses to that to address that? Well we we aired some. It'll be published. Some our our expertise for finance treasury came up with several recommendations basically agree with With a set of the government's government proposed by me wanting to add to the few things that Small businesses suggested I. Well they think so. I agree that the government should take responsibility for those businesses who have suffered because of the government actions and that's what the government for you. Tell them he cannot. Work will make sure they have substance to to survive in so they they don't have to lay off people and you can actually get back to work as quickly as possible However those are temporary measures and We are talking in the. We are talking. We have been talking about the need for long longer term.

Capped to cut because the private sector took drastic capped in in in in their salaries because of the actions of the government We also saying to representatives at all levels though government directors in gouty boards in in in utilities publicly owned companies should take a huge payer and basically that money.

Better the whole healthcare system to be able to deal with this problem as well as for the improved Package for the helper to industry and whenever they came up with it should be just a is this the first step that should be second third and so on step so basically be trying to make sure. The government is responsible in an act of the act responsibly. Any responsive fashion but so far hasn't been encouraging in just one linesman just in terms of the general mood within the platform the members in dealing with corona virus in general but still having to focus on there may be elections coming up in the fall. Everyone's still upbeat. I assume. People UPBEAT In terms of the day especially now. They're seeing that things are happening. You know with Moore of US working sort of full-time this seeing more things happening. Is that that. Some problems are being addressed and solved so that gives them a greater level of inspection. We are unhappy with the number of people who have volunteered to be on the list for various seats at various levels so government We are surprised us because we short space the level of enthusiasm a number of people who are with us that the plenty of those who will say to me to of light to help but people are of people to try to figure out the reasons one it could be that we set.

Both nationalists voiced participating Nestle's interests and they have actually been working on their own solution and this has been happening for for ten more than ten years.
