"Derek carr has been the most out that way. So what have you thought about that. The development the progress you saw this team the readers for years Before even coming to las vegas and covered them there. Where derek car wasn't really making that progress where you saw him under new offensive coordinators and you saw him with different wide receivers and struggle was real in that time. I don't think he had the seasons he had wanted to despite what the stats were. So what do you see. As far as differences with derek carr this year between the last few seasons that you saw him you know what i think just confidence in entrusting his playmakers and building. A good You know relationship and chemistry with these guys because it's been a minute since we've seen car kind of ball out this way because we forget i won't point i think it was maybe twenty sixteen that he was an mvp candidate. He took the raiders to the play. Offs dow's before i think Jon gruden came around and it seemed like car was on the cusp of being. You know a very consistent top quarterback pro bowl quarterback in the nfl. Then he broke his ankle. He couldn't play in the playoff game. It was connor. Cook to remind. The raiders raider fast listeners. They know what happened in that game. But ever since that that you know situation with the injury he callosum swagger some confidence he was in. You know as mobile. He wasn't as you know creative and doing his crazy. Make playmaking kind of things that are used to do in the pocket. Then he had a quarterback change. Maybe gone to head. The razor flirting with other teams may be awesome confident of firm other quarterbacks. He lost confidence that way now. It seems like they're card does not care about what people think about him. He's kind of blocking out the outside noise. He's kinda maybe probably got in that. Tros from jon gruden And his gm. Mike may because guys like brian edwards zeta-jones hunter round fro. These guys are just killing. You know the office doing so well together with their car. And i won't want a guy worried about their car. He's looking too much for dan. Waller is just know. Where is dan waller and give him. The ball helped me out. Bill me out there and waller. That has not been the case this year. That first game against the ravens. He was doing that way a lot. Then he just started going. Brian edwards jones and hunter henry rugs and renfro and like okay. Now he has weapons and this offense is for real. So i think you know. Will jon gruden and their car. Doing they have been very impressive. And i think they've been a legit offensive of a team this year. All right. let's take a break right there when we come back more with gilbert monsanto previewing monday night football taking places so fi stadium stay tuned.

That was incredible. I mean do you really think lamar jackson was going to fumble again. No after that no did. I also think that they'd go hard count and have a false start on half yard one. How about the way they want it. Did you see gruden. Said they couldn't find the kicker. What do you mean. They couldn't find him. Marlton was on the sideline warming up and grew.

"All right guys that's going to wrap up all of our headlines. Let's start talking about the injury report. As we look really take a closer look at this raiders game, which has now moved to Sunday at four o'clock we'll start over on their side. They've got a little bit of a shorter. Injury report list.

Let's see your injury report talking about the raiders to report other the cornerback that they have. That's out on the Kobe list. I think I saw someone in the chat room he's not just a reserve cornerback he's one of their star safeties. Maybe. I don't have that name in front of because. He's just a backup. He's a backup cornerback. Well, there was a cornerback on Monday that got put on the list I think he's a rookie Damon. Net I WANNA say. And then there's safety. Abram he was their first round pick last year or early round I. Don't know if he was first early round So in the he got put on the list at the same time that the offensive line in Gotcha. That's probably who I was who I was seeing there then. So those guys are out but also on the injury report out for them as Brian Edwards in key. Nixon a wide receiver, a cornerback they were going to be out for the game again, I. Always say and a preference I. I'm a fan of the Tampa Bay buccaneers. I don't follow other teams like if you're not like a nationally known player on. I don't like I don't think about those two guys.

"Looks like they're loading up on that line. The Saints are they're going to come here they go. Shotgun snap pocket crumbles. Line drive thrown inside, dropped on a leap in the 50 flag is thrown going for the rookie Brian Edwards, who was trying to catch it against his chest. At midfield, flying down to 48. Passenger parents. Defense number. 23 ball will be placed in the spot of the foul automatic. First time pro bowler Martian Lattimore in the secondary for the Saints are usually a big fan of 34 5, winning the ball down the field, but he had one on one on inside fade route really good place to put the ball to the outside. They were kind of hand fighting the whole way. But Latimores Hay and got upon the jersey I can see why they called it but it would have been okay with a no call. Right? There's both guys were fighting back and forth. Later, 49 car under center first in 10 got the snap and hands off to Jacob's over the guard past 50 on the Raider black painted logo and gaining three between the hash march down to the 48 yard line up New Orleans. Minick on third quarter were tied at 17 this offensive line. This couple changes here for the Raiders of the offensive line positions and they really settled in here since Horse quarter three sacks in that first quarter kind of thought. Oh, man, they're gonna dominate all night long. They settled in And again short yardage situations not having to hold the football has been a big key when they've done a nice job here early in the second quarter, half painted logo. It's second down in 7 48 Yard line of the Saints Raiders on the move from our right door left shotgun snap prop back to line drive, throw quick cross caught by the tide and Waller between the ash market, the 40 taken down to the 38. Right down the middle of the field. Short little laser past picks up 10 and a first down for Las Vegas, spotted at the 38 of New Orleans. There give the Saints brought pressure, but nobody got near. Derek Carr, put the ball nicely right out in front of Darren Waller was good coverage right there, but the ball placed out in front defender couldn't get it. My snag. From the year by Darren Waller. Waller's caught seven passes tonight. Car is under center, his silver pants grass stained here is he's under center with the first in 10 38 of New Orleans. One running back, there's the stamp. The car drops back. Five winds up down the sideline over the shoulder. Catch Moreau down the sideline. $2015 sideline 10 far side tangled. He's tangled in about the seven yard line of the thinks what attention What a throw. It's a 31 yard catch and run first and goal to go Raiders Moreau in a little wing spot, right here on the outside receiver in a little bit of a slant to the inside and rubbed Malcolm Jenkins, forcing him underneath Morrow on that. Well rounded. What a beautiful throw by Derek Carr was like pulling a hand off.

"Might take some time. I don't think it's GonNa. Take as long as people might think. At clemson tanner amuse played played safety, but he played a boundary position that put him heavy heavy heavy in the run game, so and excelled in that area, for for the Clemson Tigers his safety background, and the four three nine forty speed that he flash at the NFL scouting combine shows that he's an athlete. So he he has a history in defense. He's going to be asked to do a lot of that at Linebacker, and he brings that skill set to the table with his speed and intelligence. He's going to be lined up against tight ends some running backs I think he's going to be able to prove with that athletic ability, and that safety background that he's going to be an asset in pass coverage. Coverage in addition to what he does in the run game and I don't think it's GonNa take him very long based on what he didn't college and the scheme that he was in at Clemson to make that transition linebacker. Keep an eye on Tanner Muse and my other guy is receiver Brian Edwards and other third round. Pick from South Carolina. I thought the Raiders steeled Brian Stall Brian Edwards in a normal draft he would have been a I first or second round pick, but the death at wide receiver this year was incredible. in the draft plus Edwards had a late season injury, and then got hurt again right before the scouting combine kinda sabotaged his assessment process, and for that reason he went to the third third round much of the light of the raiders, but you look at. At Brian, Edwards, six foot, three, two hundred and fifty pounds, a big bodied wide receiver. Who If you watch him on? Tape is a physical, tough hard nose receiver that goes up and competes and gets balls. He's big physical and is able to get us his body to his advantage. You also creates space downfield. He's got enough athletic ability at enough speed to be an asset in in long pass. The long pass game, but we're I think he's really GonNa Excel and where he's going to get on the field earlier than expected is using that big body as an asset in the red zone. We all know the raiders were great last year at picking up yards, and they had the seventh most or eleventh most yards in the NFL where they broke down was in the red zone. They couldn't translate yards into. Into points there are twenty four th in the NFL and scoring. That's not going to get it done. And what that means or what that meant was they just bogged down in the Red Zone? A lot of that was schematics. A lot of that was skill level. A lot of that was not the kind of weapons that you need to be able to excel at that point in the field, a guy like. That big body becomes a Goto tap of a guy if he can show that that ability at this level which I think he can, and he can become somebody that the raiders can rely on as a red zone weapon I think he gets on the field for that reason I can't wait to see what he can do in training camp. I wish I could've seen him. and all the other guys that I'm talking about during ot as we didn't have that luxury, we have to wait 'til training camp whenever that starts, but I'm fired up about it. Hey, thanks a lot for listening. You. Guys are really really appreciate the engagement.

"Everyone. This is Brian Edwards, and I'm cat Brooks. Weekday mornings, we host upfront two hours of conversation about what's in the news. And what should the politics technology and presents police what's happening in city hall, and at the state house in Washington and in the streets that starting at seven AM right after democracy now on up front. Last week. President Trump pulled the United States out of the intermediate nuclear forces arms control treaty with Russia. The IMF treaty was agreed to by president Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven and it was a major step forward in ratcheting down Cold War tensions. It's the only arms control agreement that eliminated an entire class of weapons land-based missiles with a range of up to thirty four hundred twenty miles the treaty led to the elimination and destruction of nearly twenty seven hundred missiles this class of weapons is especially dangerous as they have the ability to reach their targets in minutes, and thus are seen as I strike capable. That. Also means that an adversary might put their missiles in a hair trigger launch on warning mode. Increasing the likelihood of accidental or mistaken, launches with disastrous consequences the treaty was negotiated after enormous mass demonstrations throughout Europe against the appointment of such weapons on European soil. Situation is further complicated. By the fact, that the IMF treaty was negotiated in the context of the US and the USSR both abiding to the terms of the nineteen seventy two anti ballistic missile treaty. But in two thousand and two George W Bush withdrew the US from that treaty and the US began installing missile defense systems in some of the new NATO countries of eastern Europe, con Jalan and military analysts and columnists for foreign policy in focus notes that John Bolton Bush adviser at the time was a vocal advocate of getting the US out of the ABM. And now as the new national security adviser for President Trump has taken down the IMF treaty Bolton's goal, Helen and told Brian Edwards. Take her to the up front show is nothing less than the end of decades. Of nuclear plant and arms control agreements. It continues. The process of underlining the whole tapestry of nuclear weapons treaties. They date back to nineteen sixty three partial test-ban treaty that banned atmospheric testing, and you went through the nuclear non-proliferation agreement salt, one salt to the intermediate nuclear force cell cancer strategic arms limitation exactly that controls the intercontinental ballistic, and which is the strategic arms, reducing reduction treaties start one and start to what this does is. It begins to challenge that whole tapestry. And let me just give you one example of how this has worked out. In fact, is the reason we have crisis today when John Bolton was in the Bush administration. He pressed very hard to get rid of the antiballistic missile. Treaty and Bush withdrew and two thousand and two from the anti-ballistic missile treaty. The reason why we have a crisis right now and Europe with the Russians is because of that what happened was that we moved antiballistic missile systems. What they call ages ashore into eastern Europe on the on on the pretense that we were doing it to defend Europe from the Iranians that have do not have missiles that can reach Europe and have nuclear weapons in any case the Russians read it as it was aimed at them. This was anti-business missile system that was set up to essentially absorb any strike by the Russians so the Russians intern deployed this new cruise they claim it's not a violation. Who knows I mean, nobody's really negotiated the seriously? So because of the fact that the Bush administration withdrew. Drew from ABM and the United States, thereby set up anti missile systems in Europe. That's the reason why we have the crisis right now. So I want people to understand that this set of treaties are not just stand alone. It's gotta bid line of dominoes and the APM treaty went off when was. You know, ended that knocked the next domino to go was the I n f one the next one. It's endangered is nuclear non-proliferation agreement because if the United States deploys, medium range missiles in its allies country, South Korea or Japan or someplace in Europe. That will violate article one in two of the non-proliferation agreement which doesn't allow a nuclear power to deploy potentially nuclear missiles in non nuclear countries. Borders on the words, they could do it in France and Britain because their nuclear powers, they did it in Belgium or Poland or or something like that that would violate the nuclear non-proliferation agreement with the nuclear non-proliferation frame. It goes looking at a world in which we would have nuclear weapons in places like Saudi Arabia Japan, South Korea. South Africa actually had a nuclear weapon at one point Brazil and Argentina nuclear weapons programs, Iran. Suddenly we're living in a world of the nineteen fifties in the early nineteen sixties a really dangerous world. But this time with far more actors. Then we had in the fifties. And sixties. So let's set aside the kind of proximate argument for the moment coming out of the Trump administration, which is that Russia was violating this tree. Anyway. So I stay here saying speakers like John Bolton have had an agenda of getting out of these nuclear arms treaties, going back decades, what motivates that what upside with pulling out of disarmament treaties? Well, one of the things I it's it's interesting is at Bolton has been crawling for getting out of the IMF treaty for a long time. And in fact, he called for getting rid of the treaty three years before the Obama administration got information that they said meant that the Soviets the Russians were cheating on the agreement. Some of the words it doesn't have anything to do with cheating on the agreement. What Bolton and the people around him. Argument is that the United States should not be involved in any treaty, which restricts the United States ability to project military power. He which ties the United States hands is not in the interests of the United States. So they not only are going after. The non-proliferation agreement ABM treaty IMF treaty. At this point Bolton says they're not interested in doing anything about the start agreement which expires in twenty twenty one. The the first start cut nuclear weapons by eighty percent. A pretty big number and the second start agreement restricted the nuclear powers to fifteen hundred and fifty warheads one thousand five hundred fifty warheads. If we get rid of the start to agreement while nuclear arms race. That's what's going to happen. That's what Bolton and those people want they want. But it's the logic that the United States has the biggest guns in the room. The most developed military suggest unleash it. Potentially. And they should woods Bowman. Those people argue that the United States threatened to use military force. And used it on occasion that basically countries would let the United States run the world and the United States should run the world con-, melanin rights for foreign policy in focus, France and Germany have buried their differences on new European rules that could complicate plans for a gas pipeline from Russia to Germany after last minute negotiations today between the two European Union. Powerhouses ambassadors of you EU countries meeting in Brussels gave the go-ahead to a tweet proposal that will not threaten the politically sensitive project the agreement which only Bulgaria voted against sets the scene for negotiations within the EU for extending the blocks rules regulating gas deliveries to incoming pipelines like the Russian German Nord Stream to the Russian German pipeline is being. Built under the Baltic Sea to deliver gas directly to Germany for further distribution across Europe, increasing the routes capacity over what already flows through the first Nord Stream pipeline, IRA Spitzer reports from Berlin. In a dramatic turn construction of the eleven billion dollar Nord Stream two pipeline now appears to be on solid footing. Again, despite concerns over European dependence on Russian energy supplies, construction of the pipeline has already underway in the Baltic Sea. But the US and some eastern European countries have strenuously oppose the project France, reversed course, two times before finally agreeing to support the German position. According to a draft of the agreement seen by the AFP news agency, the agreement would give Germany oversight of the pipeline as opposed to the European Union. Germany hopes to open the pipeline by the end of the year. I read Spitzer Berlin. Congressional bargainers traded offers and work towards a border security compromise today that would avert a fresh federal government shutdown and potentially resolve a clash with President Trump. That's dominated the opening weeks of the new congress. Both sides negotiators expressed optimism that are cord could be we'd soon on a spending package for physical barriers along the southwest border and other security measures. Participants said the agreement would all, but certainly be well below the five point seven billion dollars that Trump has demanded to build his border wall and much closer to the one point six billion. That was in a bipartisan Senate Bill last year, the current resolution funding much of the government expires a week from today. The Trump administration said it will waive environmental reviews that would otherwise be mandatory to replace. Up to fourteen miles of border barrier in San Diego. The department of homeland security said it would issue the sixth waiver of Donald Trump's predators presidency. Under a two thousand five law that empowers the secretary to waive reviews required under environmental laws, if the border barrier is deemed to be in national security interests, those laws include the national environmental Policy Act the Clean Air Act and Endangered Species Act. The waiver helps clear the way for work to begin this month on replacing a second layer of barrier in San Diego. The barrier is a steel mesh wall that was built about a decade ago. But it can now be breached with powerful battery operated saws sold in home improvement stores. The waivers allowed the Trump administration to avoid environmental reviews and resulting lawsuits challenging violation of environmental laws. Immigrant rights activists say two bills introduced this week by Democrats in the Tennessee legislature will help restore public trust in law enforcement public services and state schools after last year's passage of anti sanctuary city legislation. Antoinette Kerr reports current Tennessee law mandates that state and federal agencies detain in report undocumented residents to ice it was met with controversy in last year's legislature. But still passed Steffi teacher of the Tennessee immigrant refugee rights coalition says the sanctuary city law has been a source of fear and confusion across the state. We've gotten calls from parents who are unsure if they should enroll their children in school fearful of going to the health department for even critical services people who are reporting crimes like domestic violence at much lower rates for fear that these routine encounters with the government will land them in deportation proceedings.

The Trump administration has moved to discontinue the program. Nick, Alexandra reports Vanessa Velasco is a bay area.

She was she grabbed way would Hornish living Taurean three languish investors funny. Some framed she was accepted to UC Berkeley, she's had momentous. Ed, you know as a freshman in. And for us. Dr Watson American dream. But President Trump has aimed his anti-immigrant politics at TPS holders, Trump removed TPS status for Salvador, Nicaragua Haiti and Sudan last year, the ACLU immediately sued to stop him. They argue that the president was motivated by his anti-immigrant political agenda instead of acting according to the legally required assessment of safety conditions in those countries. A federal judge issued an injunction that prevents deportation of TPS holders for now. But for Vanessa Velasco and for the families of more than two hundred and seventy thousand American citizen children in a similar situation. This means living their lives in limbo without TPS. She and her husband would have to decide whether to bring their American children back to a Salvador or to tear the family apart. We know that it will be left behind.

They want to demonstrate their humanity share their personal stories and underlying the contribution to this country. And their contribution is substantial one recent study by the emigrant legal resource center found that removing TPS status from Haitians Salvadorans and Hondurans would decrease social security and Medicare income by six point nine billion dollars and decrease the country's gross domestic product by more than forty five billion dollars. But TPS holders say it's not just about the money Vanessa Velasco plans to ask lawmakers to put themselves in her shoes. Everyone has family.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin Quietly Met With the Saudi Crown Prince
"Meanwhile, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin met with Saudi Arabia's embattled crown prince Mohammad bin Salman today, the Saudi foreign minister posted a photo of the meeting on its Twitter account and late today the eve of glitzy three day investment conference in Saudi Arabia. Mnuchin has said he would not attend the conference but would discuss counter-terrorism efforts with Saudi officials Daniel wrenches reports. The US treasury secretaries canceled participation in the future investment initiative, showcase for crown prince, Mohammad bin Salman, economic reform plans, but Steven Mnuchin hasn't cancelled his visit and says they'll continue to talks on efforts to combat terrorism financing and countering Iran. Meanwhile, the president's son-in-law Jared Kushner says they'll still in the fact finding phase while new surveillance videos released by Turkey sharing. What's he still to be a Saudi agent leaving the consulates wearing Jamal Kushtia clothes shortly? After the Saudi gentlest was allegedly murdered in. What appears to have been an effort to cover it up Daniel wrenches, Washington. President Trump's main reason for avoiding major punishment for Saudi Arabia's detention and death of Jamal Khashoggi is coming under fire the arms deal of one hundred forty billion dollars with the kingdom. First of all. It's hardly one hundred forty billion dollars worth. It's only fourteen and a half billion so far and some of that amount results from previous deal under President Obama. The rest is non-binding promises. Then there are the even more inflated claims over the number of US jobs created by the sale starting at four hundred and fifty thousand the Washington Post says that would be more than the three hundred fifty five thousand employed by the total US military manufacturing sector of the economy. Trump. Escalated that to half a million US jobs, then six hundred thousand and finally over a million best case estimate would be no more than forty thousand jobs reporter, Simon Mark says Moore, it's a very live issue following the acknowledgement by the government in Riyadh off two weeks of lies the journalist Jamal Khashoggi did die violently in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Earlier this month. President Trump says he has no intention of scrapping a weapons deal with Saudi Arabia that he incorrectly claims will create one million jobs in America's defense sector. The reality is that it won't do any such thing. And the British government is also on defy for contemplating weapons sales to Riyadh. Not least because of the Saudi led military intervention in Yemen. It is estimated to have killed more than fifteen thousand innocent civilians. Jeremy hunt is Britain's Foreign Secretary. We do not pursue profit at any cost the relationship goes. As well beyond the commercial side. There's a strategic partnership in the region to try and bring peace and constrain the destabilizing activities of Iran. Nonetheless. Of course, there are going to be very very serious consequences. I'm not gonna say that because I I need to look at this investigation. We he's independent done the business in terms of being credible. And we'll send you to see how the Saudis this is the crucial thing how they will say react to the findings of the investigation. Then we'll take out his his critics say there's no need to wait for the investigation. There're djing western governments to block arm sales to Riyadh with FSN spotlight. I'm Simon marks lake is a veteran for correspondent who specialized in coverage of the Middle East. His latest book is the Iran agenda today, the real story inside Iran, and what's wrong with US policy. He told as Philip mulberry on the Sunday show that while Jamal kashogi was a sharp critic of Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin. He was hardly a revolutionary and was in fact of Royal lineage himself, he doesn't he come from a wealthy well-connected family the name, Adnan. Associ- might be familiar. He was the arms dealer multi-billion multi-billionaire. That's his uncle multi-billionaire guy involved in the wrong contra and numerous scandals of years past apparently he did not like inherit or get any of his uncle's money. But that gives you an idea of the family. He was a journalist. He was a worked as a diplomat. He was worked as adviser to the top Royal family princes, and he was very much part of the Saudi ruling elite. But he had his falling out, particularly when Muhammad then bin Salman, the NBS came to power, by the way, you don't get elected in Saudi Arabia. You. There's over well over one hundred princes of the king, the king has multiple wives. They each have several kids, and there's a lot of backstabbing figuratively and literally that goes on in the Royal family. And so when NBS came to power was in the outs, and he went into exile in the US. He. When Virginia became a columnist for the Washington Post, and he was a critic of Saudi Arabia, but a from still within the system itself, he was not calling for the overthrow of the monarchy and establishment of a democratic parliamentary system. He wanted to see changes. In the policy, and he had some ties with Muslims with the Muslim Brotherhood, which is a political Islam is group of conservative nature. But generally does want to see changes away from the kind of ultra right-wing. Fundamentalist version of Islam practice. What's called Wahabism? That's practiced in Saudi Arabia. Well. This it would appear that Mohammed bin Salman. The crown prince is quite thin skinned and any any even minor criticism is not tolerated. Yeah, we'll remember when he came to power one of the first things he did was imprisoned a bunch of fellow princes and multibillionaires in a fancy five star hotel, but block them in and in some cases, tortured them into basically giving up billions of dollars in return for their freedom. And that the other example was remember he was lauded for allowing women to drive right for finally changing Saudi policy, but just prior to the implementation of that law. He arrested a bunch of women who have been advocating that. So he if there's going to be any change he wants to make it. He doesn't want any kind of grassroots efforts organized opposition. And that's what the murder was all about in his father. The king is usually. Portrayed as quite debilitated. And consequently. An ephemeral kind of leader. Yeah. I mean, it's the sort of thing, that's shrouded in mystery. But as far as I can tell the guy is out of it, mentally is not really able to govern day-to-day. And and NBS is the the functioning leader of Saudi Arabia KPFA upfront has Brian Edwards as demont harbor, but director of research and analysis at the center in Washington DC, why the crown prince appears to have been involved in a plot to kill kashogi for one thing. He had ever is a is one. It SM visas one and is series of a whole bunch of people who have been killed by been disappeared and prisons or anywhere in over the last ten fifteen years that has been the first day. He may not be the last really has this issue with the absolute ownership and absolute control. He he will what he gets out of it is he silences yet another voice that is supposedly that that was telling the truth about what Hamad. Projects for the kingdom. The future of the kingdom. On what besides economically polar, social, the tabby whatever a domestic job. She was basically bringing the truth to the world about what really means what they mean store. Have these these projects? Nobody wants nobody is. Trying to diversify its economy. Nobody is. Saudi Arabia for trying to shoot is regional, you know security, and he's the problem is how are you doing this? Gemology died because he basically. Some blame on Muhammed or not doing that. I think by by the country's what he gets out of it is again, like I said you side. That's his voice is decided this Levy have bring Lance economically, socially, or politically that the that the been ceremony has been trying to get over the last few years, but up until this point. Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince of Saudi Arabia had very effectively gotten most of the western media to frame him as little more than a liberal reformer inside Saudi Arabia, and kind of erase everything else that you talked about. Not to describe him as a tyrant consolidating power within Saudi Arabia, and certainly not to spend much time on the war. He's prosecuting in Yemen. This seems to be like the first major public relations. Disaster from Mohammed bin Salman. Do you think? He just thought killing a Washington Post turn A-List wouldn't try this kind of tension. I have a feeling that he's saying, but we'll draw special attention as far as he is. You have to also remember this person has only come on the scene over the last three years three and a half years. He had no political experience as far as knowing what the world is about. So as far as I'm concerned, it's a lot of hubris. He thinks that whatever he does is gonna be bought by by the international community, especially by by Washington. And unfortunately, American journalists have really fallen or the this thing. He's he's you know, he left women Dr. Big deal. I mean, this is their right? Why would why why should they wait for somebody to let them drive? I mean, it's absurd flor- Florida for American actually some other western Europeans. Why shouldn't you penalty for this? This is great. This is his decorum. Does the society? This is for me. A lot of people in the United States. Surprisingly, so sold sold on on on this agenda of liberalisation that they actually forgot that this person really doesn't know what he's doing. And now all the has all come to all the chickens have come home. And and no now, we don't know what the what the what the future of Saudi Arabia is going to be like because of this man in harbor the Arab center in Washington DC, an
'Abolish Ice' Rallying Cry Raises Tricky Political Questions
"Abolishing is has become a, rallying, cry for the democratic party's liberal wing. Including Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and upstart, house candidate Alexander or Cossio Cortez of New York who standard ten term. Congressman in New York democratic primary on today's upfront KPFA morning show veteran immigration activists Catherine tech Taqwa executive director of the national network for immigrant and, refugee rights told has Antonio Yukos's and Brian. Edwards St. Kurt that the problem is far, more complex than just abolishing ice a slogan is not a, strategy and that the slogan didn't quite capture the the, whole series of decades of policies that. Criminalise immigrants that really provide the mandate for is switches the instrument to carry Out this kind of community terror. That we've been witnessing and and it's all embedded within the, department of homeland security and the department of homeland security was created supposedly to guard our national security, and intertwined immigration policy within that context so to dismantle ice would be one thing but. It could another agency enforcement enforcing the same policies could take its place and the bigger hall really has to do with a transforming the policies which are complicated decades long that we we have that Really allow ice to carry out these kinds of practices so there's a lot of layers to what it means to abolish or dismantle ice and and even for for the general public but also for policymakers there's a question about whether in fact they can say we have introduced legislation. To abolish is but are they also prepared, to decriminalize immigration policy so I think we should do a little bit of, unpacking here just for the sake of institutional illiteracy because the the Republican attack on the apologize movement is this, means open borders In fact two different agency as I understand it customs and border protection. Patrols the border and the area. Around it intercepts people who've just crossed the border ice handles deportation proceedings inside the country they're the ones who go, pick, up people, at their home because of a speeding ticket they got five. Years ago they just trickled through the. System now and put in, jeopardy that's right the abolish ice movement is actually a relatively narrow focus on. That arm of the immigration enforcement apparatus right and you know as as slogans ago I think it probably does capture what is. Also taking place at. The board I'm I'm sure that's the intention and when most people here abolish is they're thinking, about the the agency border patrol as well and? Don't really understand technically you know the distinctions there are actually two eight sub agencies within ice there's one, for enforcement and removal from that's the one that we I think generally characterises As ice and then there's the investigative arm of of, ice, which which, also functions but it's true there those two and they work. In sync and increasingly what we've seen. Is that a lot of, the enforcement policies that Oriented towards. The border, have been, creeping inside so, you know, the border extends one hundred miles, so we're talking about enforcement even at the border that is regional in character jurisdiction of jurisdiction of of of the of the. Border patrol but it's you know it's it's again their agencies they're they're. Instruments of of policy and unless we change some of the. The laws that allow is an BP to to conduct itself in that way You know we will just be replacing one bad. Agency with another bat agency
