Kingpins Daily: Henry Hill
"Today's quote is from Mafia so Henry Hill an associates at the Lucchese crime family as many Italian Mafia. Al FISA COOLED. That is. He wasn't associate until his arrest in nineteen eighty off to wish he turned. Fbi informant eventually. He sold his life story to Simon and Schuster in the book. He'll explain the appeal of joining the mob at the age of twelve. My ambition was to become a gangsta. Be a wise guy to me. Being a wise guy was better than being president of the United States to be a wise guy was to own the World Hill. Wasn't the only little boy to see. The attraction of the Mafia lifestyle for decades in the twentieth century. Italian communities like Hills Brooklyn neighborhood. Brownsville showed children what joining one of the crime families could do for you. There was the wealth. The Glamour of the guns. The secrets and the rituals. The respect and fear of the community generally speaking the power joining the Mafia as hill put it was to own the world. Show the president of the United States might own the world too but he owned it from somewhere far away somewhere with alien rules kid from an immigrant family didn't know and thus was unlikely to aspire to in contrast mob guys are wiseguys as hill and his pals called them stuck around the neighborhood in their sleep cars and fancy suits. They spoke a language. The kids could understand a language drawn out of old world conceptions of honor and violence a language memorialized in storybooks in spoken around the dinner table by Sicilian. Grandpas and fact wise guys with such an integral respected part of life in many Italian American communities that they will also called goodfellas hence the name of the Iconic Award Winning Nineteen Ninety Scorsese Film. A film that was based on Henry. Hill's life story. The film like hills quote displays. Just how alluring. The life of King Pin can be despite the violence and despite the possible consequences which Henry Hill experienced in full as a young protegee of the Lucozzi organization in the early nineteen sixties. He was involved with arson gambling. Schemes truck hijacking loansharking assault and drug dealing in the early nineteen seventy S. He served four years in prison for extortion but once he got out he was back on the streets or rather at the airport. One of his most notorious crimes was the one thousand nine hundred seventy eight Lufthansa heist he and several other. Lucchese associates rubbed a cargo terminal at New York's JFK. Airport came away with five million dollars in cash and nearly one million dollars in jewels. It was one of the most lucrative cash robberies ever occur in the United States and hill and his cronies got away with it. Only a small fraction of the lutes was ever recovered and the only person convicted for the crime was an airport worker. Who abetted the thieves but hill didn't escape the law for long two years later in nineteen eighty? He was arrested on drug trafficking charges by turning informant for the FBI hill was able to weasel his way out of both harsh legal punishments and death on the streets at the hands of Lucozzi enemies after a stint in witness protection. He published multiple books about his life. And did the talk show circuit the glamorous life was still his for the taking but even getting out to the mob didn't erase the violence from hills life in two thousand three his son and daughter. Greg and Gina Hill published a joint memoir about their mafia childhood. It clarified the ways in which hills violence and drug use tore his family. Apart as Gina explained in an interview on Fox News on my seventeenth birthday. He beat me with an inch of my life and then he took a butcher knife to a picture of me. Henry Hill may not have served out the jail sentence. His crimes deserved but he and his family paid the price for his glamorous life of Mafia law the little boy in Brownsville Brooklyn got what he asked for but not perhaps what he wanted.

Between President Trump's Border Wall And The Rio Grande Lies A 'No Man's Land'
"President trump is moving ahead with his border wall yesterday. He signaled that he wants to divert three point eight billion dollars from the Pentagon's budget and set it. Aside for border wall construction that is on top of the eleven billion dollars already planned but down on the border of the project is wreaking havoc for landowners in Texas. It's being built right. Through the middle of many properties leaving thousands of acres in a kind of no man's land between the barriers and the Rio Grande and John Burnett reports this overgrown thorn scrub is the Nether world between the United States and Mexico to the north border fence to the south the muddy meandering Rio Grande. This was Fort Brown Memorial Golf Course on the side of the historic fortification. That gave the city. Its name but with the US government. I started building border. Barriers under President George W. Bush. The entire eighteen hole course ended up on the south side of the fence. Golfers didn't like having to drive through a gate and being walled off from the rest of the city. This spit of land suddenly felt unsafe. None of us come over here. You don't feel protected in any part of the land is south of the wall. Who'll yet Garcia is former president of the University of Texas Brownsville which used to operate the skull course but when the golfers stopped coming it went bankrupt today the clubhouse shuttered and the wants manicured Greens have returned to nature. What used to be a very active place very friendly place for students and far golf team and for Winter Texans has become a deserted sad desolate. No Man's land. President trump has pledged to build more than five hundred miles of new border. Wall out west. It runs along the straight land boundary with Mexico but in Texas that line is the curvy Rio Grande and because of flooding concerns. The Wall is often built some distance away as much as a mile north of the river. The defunct Fort Brown Memorial Golf. Course is a cautionary tale landowners fear. The Wall will effectively sever their acreage from the United States leading. It abandoned lawless and unprofitable so far fifty. Five property owners have gone to court to try to block construction to hear their concerns. I headed West on military highway. First stop is the River Bend Resort and golf club where the owners were planning a major expansion worth. Millions of dollars then came the border wall. The thirty foot wall through the middle of the property kills our project completely kills our project. Jeremy Bernard is part of the family that owns river band. Nearly seven hundred Americans and Canadians from the frigid north moved down here during the winter to enjoy. Short sleeves and Margaritas Bernard Parks his golf cart on the Levy. That overlooks the curved streets. Lined with fancy mobile homes and palm trees. This is where the proposed alignment is from Border Patrol. The problem with that is seventy percent of our property is south of the Levy that includes the REC center the pool tennis courts and fifteen of eighteen holes. All of it would be cut off by the wall. The frustrating thing Bernard says is they rarely see unauthorized immigrants and drug smugglers passing through here. His family is negotiating urgently with customs and Border Protection to move the wall slightly north. So it won't slice their property in half and yet Jeremy Bernard's politics haven't changed he remains loyal to President trump. And I've got friends that disagree with me and they say how could you vote for this man? What his wall wants to tear apart your community. The main thing I tell them look the thought that I'm going to agree. One hundred percent with somebody especially a politician is just outrageous. I just have an issue with the blanket. Let's build a wall everywhere as you continue on military highway urbanized. Brownsville gives way to fields of onions. Cotton and corn here. I find Richard Roy at his farm headquarters leaning on his pickup truck. He's this rich Delta soil all of his life I'm seventy years old and It just it's GonNa ruin my lifestyle here of been living in the country. I've never lived in town and To have that wall. There's just GonNa really disturb me but drawing Nosey can't beat Washington DC so last fall. He reluctantly SOLD THE GOVERNMENT. Aruban of land so they could erect the wall across his crop. Rose like Jeremy Bernard Richard draw supports trump and his all four increasing border security. He just doesn't want the wall in his property. I told him you know this stupid wall is going to have lights on it. It's GONNA be like being in prison while lights and everything and I said You put them lives up on me on my house. You know more. Shoot him out. Of course I have time to calm down. Joy has seen what's happened over the past decade to Riverside land that's isolated by the border wall weeds. Takeover and people are afraid to go there anymore on his farm. He's worried that bad hombres will cross the river from Mexico and threatened his farm hands. He says the wall seeds has property down by the river to Mexico. Like Tola Board. Joe I said look you know goodwill how you build a wall. All agents will done trolling up and down the law. They're never going to go on down to the river anymore. He yield back into the Rio. Grande is the first line of Defense Baloney. You just wait a few years. I shared these misgivings with C. Bp a spokesman responded the Border Patrol will continue to operate on both sides of the barrier to include the riverine environment further. They'll install electric gates with security codes to give landowners access to the south side of the wall. My Westward John. Across the valley terminates at the rustic campground of the Cavazos family. Fred is seventy and in a wheelchair. They were race here. My Dad taught me how to fish. Here OUTTA. Get a shovel and dig worms. He says they run a few cows but the main income is from tenants who built weekend shanties along the water's edge. A lot of time on boats a lot of own jet skis so they come down with us and sausages Saturdays and Sundays and barbecue. It's a hundred four and five so they feel great where you're out there jet skiing. The government wants to put the wall and a wide patrol zone. Along the north end of their property. Cavazos worries it will drive away. His tenants who may not want to be walled off from the rest of Texas like many large families down here the Cavazos clan is split someone to accept what they think is a generous offer from the government. Nearly four hundred thousand dollars for SIX ACRES BUT COUSIN. Ray who seventy-five wonders what happens? If one day they put the land up for sale. The problem is the devaluation of the property. Nobody wants to buy property. That's on the Riverside of the wall. So this is what the fight is going to be about ray. Infrared are fighting the government in federal court. They want to drag it out until election day hoping that the Democrat wins the White House and halts the border wall
The New Voters of Texas
"Earlier this week I had the opportunity to connect act with Oscar Silva of battleground Texas in Austin and also a failure Lonzo of Texas rising. She was calling in from Brownsville. And here's the conversation. We Ateya failure and Oscar. Welcome to Latino rebels radio. I think you've ever having me so talk to me. A little bit about what you guys are here for are alone. Why don't we start with you a failure because I do think when people talk about Texas and hearing about the electorate is changing aging? There's still a lot of skepticism. So tell me what you're doing and what's going on in the state now politically and what you're involved with. Well I work for a project of Texas Freedom Network called Texas raising which is essentially a youth leadership engagement program where we really are are trying to engage young people of color in a political process. So that means actually being on the ground in college campuses having meaningful conversations with people about what it means to be politically engaged. And I've been doing this for a while so I have seen the landscape changes in Texas. I've seen how young people are of color or more and more involved with every year And how really the in this part of the electorate is growing and the Latino population is going to be the majority in Texas in just a few years. Okay so yeah. A lot of my work is having those conversations registering people to vote And helping them really come into into their leadership. What about Oh you what are what are you involved with a sure? Well Texas about around Texas has been around for a few years. We are a statewide grassroots organization that works to turn Texas into into a battleground state by treating like on as villas mentioning. The lucky next population is incredibly important. Nationally it's not it's not the exception Texas so applying methodology that makes sense in our communities in a way that could make us more. Civically Gauges is critical for the success. Not only of progress in Texas but also that the union improvements in the betterment of the lives of our communities across the state in Texas as you know is growing state in out of The close to nine point five million that have been added in this country over the past Nine to ten years nearly a quarter of of that growth has happened in Texas alone and something that makes organizations like Texas Freedom Network Very important especially today is that most lapping XS in in in Texas are are was considered a young voter a young person. I would say just over half of our are that the population in our state is under the age of thirty four and super important is incredibly important increasingly important to make sure that we are taking account for that in in the work that we do so our organization or slightly offended like other partners that we have across the state continues to focus on making sure that the community organizing realizing that we are doing is relevant to our own communities of Latino across the state so let me ask each of you What are the obstacles some of the the obstacles or misperceptions about this electorate? Because I think we've been hearing predictions of Texas turning over becoming a purple state but it it doesn't seem like there's any indication of that. So why. Why is this different? Why are we looking at this now? In twenty twenty something different where at lease history would suggest that Texas is still really behind the Times so what are the obstacles. What are the Misperceptions Oscar? Do you take. I'm happy to begin but I know I know. Failure for will have a lot to offer a here especially both she and I are border. Kids in so We probably experienced these obstacles in in in different forms. I will say that I divide those From the top down into two categories there are obstacles that are just You know systemic obstacles to see what the governments of Texas has done in there are also obstacles on the side of the the people themselves are ourselves. Who are doing this work out? I will start with the I wanted. Somebody goes in Texas in even national news. Just the systems that were created to engage people. Naturally civically were not created in a friendly waiver natural organic way for us and so you start seeing that though the growth has been larger in communities of color it's XS one of five states where the majority of its inhabitants are people from from people of Color and so you don't see that reflected in its electorate and you don't see that reflected tip much less so in in its representation so In Texas specifically just becoming a registered voter is one of the hardest things that you can do even as a citizen of this country much more when you have a folks like myself for first generation Mexican Americans in or immigrants that are trying to figure out the system and and there are essentially Kerr parents altogether outside of its and is in franchising so there are some obstacles. I also think that a problem that we have all over or the place. And it's very very iced-up incinerated here in the State is the way that districts are drawn to to take power away from I'm from communities of color especially in the next is in two thousand eighteen. The midterm election. A A a a an election will forever remember here in our state in that. We're calling coming from. We saw that lucky. Next to increase their voting power by more than any other Ethnic group in the in the entire state in fact it was one hundred and twenty five percent participation level title to something was done correctly there but prior to that Specific steps taken to make sure that that power has been continues to be disseminated on the I was down the ally side One of the issues that I see is that the from the databases that are written for us to the strategies that are employed on the ground they all have models that were not originally originally catered to communities of color and more specifically to let the next I in two thousand twelve worked as a Latino vote director for President Barack Obama's campaign in North Carolina and I saw that a model that's employed very very very popular among progresses across the country in campaigns Does very well in wedding. Caucasian communities is pretty well in in black and African American communities. And it doesn't do so well in Phoenix communities it is just not natural inorganic and so so why is that. Why is that like what what what? I'm sorry fairly. I'm not trying to ignore you. I just I'm just wanting to get wanted to focus a little. We're going to talk about. I wanted to talk about the challenges. I because I know you guys have the solutions and I know that Monday is a big day. So we're GONNA get to all that especially the work that you guys are doing but Oscar. You mentioned that model. And why was that a problem and then a fairly. I promise you can jump in after this. Okay sorry about this. I'm just like so into it. I had ahead. I'll say and again filling offer a lot to this as well because I will say that To be able to know that a programs being successful you have to attach metrics trek sue. You have to make sure that things are moving along however the metrics that have been attached to alive. Our programs are a little too wonky for for what I would say my community itself and so in doesn't allow organizations sometimes because campaigns to to organize Alexi Cenex community in a way that makes sense to us of an easy example that is is how electoral organizations in campaigns tend to only organiz tend to only knock on people's doors make phone calls right around in election and we know that in Lawrence Communities Trust is a big issue. It's

Here's congregated in staying in those areas the entire campaign. It was like a bar in Staten Island Adelie in the upper west side <hes> Spanish restaurant in the South Bronx and I covered toward the Van Dyke houses in Brownsville and what was interesting being out there and I think we might hear some of this from the council member is that you know because people there are the issues that we talk about on the show and in our other <hes> doings are not theoretical there you know everything from race to poverty affordable housing public housing and Crime and some people had ideas and positions on some of the issues of the day that didn't break neatly across demographic or ideological vehicle lines.

Since of course you are much more familiar with it for listeners who aren't familiar with that event. Talk a little bit about the setting for what occurred over recent days so old timers day is an amazing event. We say it's a family reunion. It's it's an opportunity for families who come back home to Brownsville or if you're still here be able to connect with your neighbors your friends and get a chance to sit and eaten. Chad and enjoy music with people. You haven't seen in a very long time and so <hes> the it's an entire week so we'll have <hes> you know Wednesday.

Lieber say I love you. You know Brownsville we appreciate you. We had a successful old timers week you. I see you next year and the music stops got off the stage and just you know hugged each other walk through the crowd and <hes> next to you know we heard gunshots in this was it I it just went from a warm fuzzy beautiful feeling to just <hes> total shock and sadness split-second and so what did this event obviously. There's investigations going on <hes>. There's people <hes> trying trying to recover from wounds <hes> we know at least one person who was killed <hes>. What is this event mean to you say to you you know. What are you thinking a side from the shock of it happening. <hes> what's the what's. The meaning here is just a random <hes> occurrence current that might have been gang related and it's just it doesn't really mean that much or what does it mean <hes> so. I so for the event itself <hes> the shooting that took place at old timers was random. You know we have never had a a mass shooting in the middle of Brownsville. I'm Phil <hes> at any at a family event a community event and so this is random <hes> but at the same time it speaks volumes Williams to the access to illegal guns in New York and just across the country as well as <hes> you know like all of the mental health issues that <hes> so many communities are suffering <hes> from with and so for me. I just see it as a systemic problem of just just too many guns on our street just access to too many guns and we really need to get a handle of it and <hes> <hes> you know we talk a lot. Oh I've heard heard a lot about <hes> gang violence in <hes> you know the gang violence being associated with Brownsville and <hes> when you look at the media just comparing what happened browns with to compare what happened in California. We had a mass shooting and it was you know innocent. People were were shot. and <hes> we have a community that's really suffering traumatize from this random mass shooting when you say i'm i'm sorry i can't remember when you say that we needed to do something about it i think that was your words what should we do that's obviously the kind of fifty million dollar question is it more enforcement stop and frisk was was extensively aimed at getting guns off the street and to some degree it did succeeded that there are other responses to what kind of a mix of policies do you think is appropriate and i say on an i'm talking more when i talk about just like real gun policy and gun laws is it's really looking at it on the federal level right <hes> access to guns and you know we are not manufacturing guns in brownsville right and so we have guns that are coming coming into our communities and so <hes> and that's because there's just an open market you can you can purchase guns you know in other states and be able to get them here so we have to to do more on the federal level as it relates to access to guns now on a local level we need to be able to provide our young people with <hes> an incentive to to do the right thing you know instead of picking up a gun and <hes> i in having by like just negativity in your life provide that young person was something else else <hes> provide them with you know access to <hes> workforce development opportunities provided them with training opportunities on bears so much gosh that's happening we we see new york city being developed but we are not part of that process so you know and i've spoken to the mayor about this when we met on sunday <hes> our young people need to be able to be unprovided with job opportunities employment opportunities throughout the development of the city and and <hes> and we don't see that on a local level and so there are so many things as we've missed out on or been <hes> we've been neglected and not part of the conversation and so that's an opportunity to to really say what the needs are in our community and how do we prevent <hes> like the the gun violence and the gang violence on a local local level both local and federal rights say a little bit more on the local <hes> you know in your mind what does that look like in terms of how the city invest more were in a neighborhood like brownsville the rest of your district <hes> other areas of brooklyn the bronx <hes> other boroughs where <hes> you know oh employment rates are not the same as the city average there's more poverty there's more incidents of violence what is what does that look like what do you say to the mayor when you say a here's what my district here's what the community in brownsville needs and this incident should really be a wakeup call that we're we're not getting it <hes> it's the same thing i've been saying <hes> for quite some time even when we're negotiating the ninety two billion dollar budget that we have in the city we we said to the mayor that we need more <hes> you know signing programs more more funding for after school more funding for s. y. e. p. more funding for like like i said on by vocational programs in our school systems and not just funding for three k..

Trump said he plans to issue an executive order that would deny asylum to anyone who crosses unlawfully that would mean all immigrants seeking asylum. Must cross it illegal port of entry. But there's already a bottleneck at border crossings from San Diego to Brownsville a new crush applicants could make things. Worse says Michael Siefert who works with the ACLU in south, Texas. He says they watched the Brownsville Matamoros international bridge every day. Even if you.

"Roof foreign Brownsville or crossing the border in Tijuana. Not sure seventy four hundred migrants heading our way, if they get here if they enter in Brownsville, Texas, it will probably be Wednesday two weeks from tomorrow at best. If they choose to go further north near California near the Tijuana crossing it will probably be closer to mid November. If they make it at all they still have many many miles of Mexico to cross before they reach the United States. Well, a series of intense closed door meetings over at the capital of this great country, the department of homeland security on the Justice department the White House. The State Department are all trying to figure out what to do with these people when they get here. Now. Of course, we all know over the summer that the Pratt. The practice of family separation was just an atrocity. And a really bad way to go for the Republicans. And they might not want it reinstitute that recently say they're going to reinstitute that before the midterms. Okay. So the architects of that family separation policy have been working on alternatives, and they do want to announce something before before the midterms that can withstand legal challenges. All right. So here's what they wanna do. They want to replace what the administration describes as catch and release which means releasing immigrants from detention while they wait for their court hearings. There are five options, I'm going to give you the five, and then you're gonna call and tell me which one you like the best or you're going to say, no, no, your here's the sixth. And here's the solution to what we should do with migrants if they ever do reach the border. All right. Here's where they would go. The most talked about alternative is is some kind of variation of the family separation policy. Parents would be forced to. Choose between voluntarily voluntarily giving up their children to foster care or remain imprisoned together. So they either say, okay, let the kids go into foster care family in the US or they remained together as a family in a in a holding area. Okay. Now, the latter the holding area would require parents to waive their child's right to be released from detention within twenty days because as you know, under the Obama administration there was this policy of detaining, even children. But after twenty days, they had to be let go this policy would say, no, no, no. If you choose to stay together, you have to release your right to let the kids go and twenty days that's option one. Option to speed up the legal cases of migrant families and process them on a first and I out basis in the hopes they would get back to Central America quicker. Okay. Quicker. Option. Three strengthened the standard of proof on asylum cases. Okay. That standard has already risen up under President Trump. But now it would screen out more family during the very first stage of the process known as quote, the credible fear interview. So they raised the standard. You know, is this really asylum? Are you really having credible fear? And if you're not boom, you go back, so they would strengthen the standard of proof. Now, the final two ideas being discussed are the use of GPS ankle monitors and then the fifth immediately arresting anyone who receives a deportation order to ensure they leave the country it's five different options. I've new options immediately arresting anyone who receives a deportation. Order obviously means somebody who has already on the inside of our country. Do you like any of them? Do you hate them? All do you love them. All do you have a better option? My phone number is six five. One nine eight nine nine two two six six five one nine eight nine nine two to six this. Texter writes, can we detain the politicians from both parties that often speak rhetoric vitriol, but can never seem to get any immigration reform done. Preaching to the choir preaching to the choir. Six five one nine eight nine nine two to six do you like any of these options? Now, remember the most talked-about option is that variation of the family separation policy. So either kids go to foster care and the parents remain in holding cell. The second option of that the parents waive their right to the child to be released, but the family stays together in the holding cell while they are processed. Hey, George here is the only option lineup the greyhound buses put them on and drive them back twenty five hundred miles. Really, really simple. That's just not that simple. I know for you. It is I get it. But we do have Silom laws here in the United States. And it doesn't get that. Simple. Hey, your one three and five, please. And can I get an order of fries that? Somewhere. You can unfortunately here WCC you cannot, but you like one three and five. Speaking of numbers, six five one nine eight nine nine two to six you like any of the above six five one nine eight nine nine two to six for the White House is thinking about what to do with this migrant caravan when they arrive if come up with sort of these five options are any of them, good ideas. And if they're not bring it what's yours bring it six five one nine eight nine nine two to six I hate your. I would have to go with number five on the deportation immediately deport them immediately. Yes. That is immediately arresting anyone who receives an order of deportation to ensure they leave the country. Yeah. I guess if you don't pass the credible fear interview immediate deportation. This. Texter writes, I closed the border. We have our own issues in this country. Someone says I'm having credible. Fear living under Trump. Okay. I'm having credible. Fair living in Trump's America. And other texter writes, I hate your ankle bracelets are the most humane of those you talked about, but how long would they remain that way? You know? I don't see where there's a timeline on that just says the extended use of ankle monitors. I would assume that when you enter the country, you have your interview. And then while you're waiting your court date. You have the ankle monitor on, and you know, that's the problem people aren't reporting for their court date. So they can't find them. So I would imagine you would always have that on until your court date. And then if you don't appear they come and get you. So not sure how much longer after that you'd have to wear it. John is in Saint Anthony, John you have an option number six for me, sir. I say do on the Mexico Guatemala border mixed the Mexican government tried, but it was armed people reclining it. What we what the twenty five mile? Why? Not much. A net. I'm sorry. You cut out you cut out a little there. John. Okay. Put up a fan. We have two weeks to do it. That's about twenty five miles wide in an electric fence an electric fence. Oh my goodness. That seems extreme what about those who are true asylum seekers? What do we do with those folks? Say it again. Yeah. Popped up the fan. Process to go through right? And that's what they're all trying to do. They are all trying to get processed when they come. So I guess John saying just keep him outside until we can process them. All let's see multiple opt. Rob is in Minneapolis. Rob your thoughts one through five or you have another option for us. But my question is using it. How what we do? Why are we letting a minute they don't even have the paperwork to asylum. But don't you have to file Frassoni accepted before you enter the country itself? I think you can do that at the border at the border. I believe there are these points of entry where you file, although the president is saying you should file in Mexico. I guess for Mexico as Mexicans Mexico's asylum policy. But when you come here, I imagine you can file at the border, and it's just a hold up. Right. But then, but then why are we letting them eight if the pick not even finished yet? And that's you're talking about the problem that we need to solve. I mean, rob. This is exactly what congress should have self twenty years ago. You know, we haven't had immigration reform probably fifty years here in this country. And this is where we are now because we don't know what to do with them. If you go to Canada, we didn't know the law one time and had a friend with us. So we went to Canada and didn't realize you why she couldn't go to Canada, they stopped him in the US, and they turned him back. Your turn right back around during the loudest at the door. Yeah. You go right back. It's like making a u-turn you go right back, then the story because the DUI and you're hitting the nail on the head which is the problem of some people say they shouldn't even be allowed in. That's it rob that's but our policy is to let them in and process them and get them a court date. So you're saying don't even let him know can have a court date, but have the court then have the court of the quarter proof, then they could come through get the paperwork, but yeah, hold him in the country. They're coming from her there in the doors because once they get to the doors. You're right ankle bracelet while parasitic takes care of that problem. Rob Lanka question, sir. I appreciate the call. Thank you. Yeah. I appreciate it. Steve's in Minneapolis. Hey, Steve you like any of these options? Yeah. I do. But I think that one won't do it. You really have to the speeding up the proof of refugee status thing. I think that's got to be there because we've had a long history of saying that you know, seeking asylum is a balancing the whole family operation things. I'm holding to get into law. That's problematic. That's going to go to the courts because it sort of breaks the law, right? Even if they waive their right to be released from for the child to be released from detention within twenty days, somebody is going to file a some kind of lawsuit against that. So yeah, you're right. I think you've pointed out went through the same thing. Correct. Initially looked at that. And you know, they ended up with you know, what you quoted and catch and release in. And you know, so you have massive numbers, you know. And if if if if this. Migration comes in. And that's that's the answer. That's going to attract a lot more people to come in. And you know, you're absolutely right is ultimately the congress needs to come up with with my form. But it doesn't do was right now. We got a problem right now not a problem right now. So so I I do think they he is somehow speed up, you know, which way do they go legitimate refugees. And if they are. And you know, the existing laws real problem because there they can't just all come in there. I think that existing laws. Correct me if I'm wrong say that in general, there's only so many country for years, right? So. Ascertained awful lot at the border checkpoints. All right. Thanks for the call. Steve. I really appreciate it. I appreciate it. I see I see your calls. William John will continue the conversation. But it is five twenty two. I have to take a quick break. Do you like any of the five options that the White House is batting around? Or do you have your own six five one nine eight nine nine two to six on C CO? Dot com. Jordana here want to tell you about my friend, John Schuster. If you're selling a house, if you're thinking of selling a house.
