MIT Researcher Discusses Bias in AI and Facial Recognition

"And we need a researcher at the mit media. Lab who pioneered research into bias. That's built in to artificial intelligence and facial recognition and the way she came to this work is almost a little too on the nose as a graduate student at mit she created a muir that would project aspirational images onto her face. Like a lion or serena williams but the facial recognition software. She installed wouldn't recognize her black face until she literally put on a white mask. Boom we need is featured in a documentary called coded bias. Airing tonight on pbs. She told us about one scene. Where facial recognition tech was installed in an apartment complex in brownsville in brooklyn. We actually had a tennis association. Reach out to us to say look. There's this landlord. They're installing the system using facial recognition as an entry mechanism. The tenants do not want this. Can you support us. Can you help us understand a bit of the technology and also limitations. And what i found was the tennis. They are already had it and it was a question. Not just about the performance of these technologies you just. It seemed like every group struggled. That was the group and that was predominant in that building but it was also a question of agency and control to actually even have a voice and a choice to say. Is this a system that we want. you know. i feel like there's this kind of double whammy with this technology. Which is that. There's bias built in and because it is fundamentally good for use in surveillance and punishment it feels like it's almost disproportionately being used in communities where it is least likely to be effective or cosmos problem. Frankly absolutely and here we are seeing is that it doesn't work in terms of the technical aspects. You get identifications. You get false arrest and so forth but even if it does work you can still optimize systems as tools of oppression so putting in surveillance titles into the hands of police departments where we see time and time again. The over criminalization of communities of color is not going to improve the situation. It just automates. What has already been going on. There is now this industry of algorithm auditors being brought into tow companies if there is bias in their work cannot be a solution. Or are these problems to fundamental. I think there is absolutely a role for algorithm auditing to play in the ecosystem when it comes to accountability and understanding the capabilities and limitations of ai. Systems but what. I oftentimes see when it comes to algorithm make auditing is it's done without context so if you just audit an algorithm in isolation or a product that's using machine learning in isolation. You don't necessarily understand how it's it will impact people in the real world and so it's a bit of a catch twenty two and so much as we don't know how it's going to work on people in the real world. Should we deploy it is why you want to have systems like algorithm make impact assessments. Because it's a question of looking at the entire design. Is this even a technology. We want if it has some benefits. What are the risk. And importantly are we including the x. Coded the people most likely to be harmed if these systems that are deployed go wrong and i think that is an important place to include people right then beyond our ethnic. Auditing we really have to think about redress. So you can audit the systems right. You can do your best to try to minimize the bias. Try to minimize the harms. But we have to also keep in mind that the systems are fallible. There will be mistakes in the real world. And so what happens when somebody is harmed and this is part of ongoing work. We're doing with the algorithm ick justice league to look at. What does harm's redress look like in the context of an ai powered world. Where do you go when you're harmed and we want that place to be. I'm the algorithm. Make adjust asleep.

While Many Asylum-Seekers Start Entering The U.S. Again, Others Are Left Behind

"Long, perilous wait for hundreds of asylum seekers stuck in Mexican towns on the US border may soon be over. The Biden administration has begun allowing some of them into the U. S to make their cases for asylum. Reversing policies put in place by former President Trump. But now, as NPR's John Burnett reports, even more migrants are surging to the border. Sandra Zuniga and her son Elder, are some of the lucky ones. They were among the migrants stuck in a camp in Matamoras, Mexico, amid the rats, snakes, mosquitoes and mud. On Sunday, Zuniga and her son walked across the International Bridge received a notice to appear in US Immigration court and settled into a cozy condo in Brownsville, Texas. It's rented by a volunteer who befriended her. You said the thought Yesterday you had the glory be to God Day I arrived. I spent the whole day crying to end up in such a beautiful place with my own bedroom and bathroom way past a great test on the camp. Some people even doubted the existence of God. We overcame. Zuniga says she fled Honduras with her son to get away from an abusive husband and violent extortionists in her neighborhood. They stayed in the camp for a year, Trump had suspended most asylum applications because of the pandemic. Biden has restarted the process, and Zuniga is among the early beneficiaries of the policy change. She taught kindergarten it a free school inside the camp. She recalled, when her students realized that their ordeal was finally over, won't mean Yo causes billing me you're on. There was a little boy who told me goodbye crying. He always asked me teacher. When can we leave here? He gave me a big hug and said through his tears. Last teacher we are crossing over. There's some 25,000 migrants scattered up and down the border between Matamoros in Tijuana. Many have been waiting well over a year to press their asylum cases in the U. S. Happy experiences like Sandra's have created high expectations and anxiety among the others left behind. US. Immigration agents are admitting some asylum seekers who've been stuck in border towns under a Trump era program known as remain in Mexico, but they're doing so slowly.

Biden Pledges To Dismantle Trump's Sweeping Immigration Changes — But Can He Do That?

"Joe Biden has pledged if he becomes president to dismantle the sweeping changes that President Trump has made to the US immigration system but could buy Don't do that. As NPR's John Burnett reports. It's easier said than done. People most closely watching to see if Biden defeats Trump and reverses. His immigration crackdown may be beyond our borders. Some 700 migrants languish in filthy tents pitched in a public park amid mud. Maps and clouds of mosquitoes. The encampment is in Matamoros, just across the Rio Grande from Brownsville, Texas. They're seeking asylum in the U. S. But stuck here under a Trump initiative known as remain in Mexico while they wait there closely following US presidential race, says Carlo Garcia, an asylum seeker from Honduras. They buy the place our hope in Joe Biden, who's the Democratic nominee because he would shoot the immigrants very differently than Trump has. We hope he will. And change is all of this Trump has created. This is discrimination and racism. Trump is touting that program's success here He is at a rally in Yuma, Arizona. Last tough. We don't want him here. We want him outside. We got sued all over the place. There. We won. So now they don't come into the United States taken Wait out. While the president claims to have restored a broken immigration system, human rights advocates are appalled that what they call the cruelty of his policies. Oh, Marge. Odd. Watt is director of the L Use Immigrants rights project. What the administration has sought to do is to simply turn off immigration and to do it unilaterally. By presidential edict without the approval of Congress. That project should be reversed. And that's exactly what Joe Biden pledges to do. His position paper on Immigration 51 bullet points over 22 pages seeks to roll back Trump's accomplishments and reenact Obama era policies. If I'm elected president, we're going to immediately and Trump's sold on dignity. Immigrant communities restore our moral state in the world are our historic rolls a safe haven for refugees and asylum seekers. Biden says no more border wall no more separating immigrant families, no more prolonged detentions or deportations of peaceable migrant workers. He would restore the asylum system and create a roadmap to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. It's a long to do list. I don't think it's realistic that Biden in four years could enroll everything that trump dead. Sarah Pierce and another analyst that the Migration Policy Institute, a nonpartisan thinktank recently catalog more than 400 executive actions Trump has taken on immigration. From heavier border and interior enforcement to restricting asylum to slashing refugee visas to creating remain in Mexico because of the intense volume and pace of change is the Trump administration enacted while in office. Even if we have a new administration, Trump will continue. Tio have had an impact on immigration for years to come. But Biden faces a host of obstacles that could slow his immigration counter revolution. First, there's the specter of renewed chaos at the southern border last year groups as large as 1000 Central Americans at a time. We're waiting across the Rio Grande into El Paso to request asylum. The Border Patrol was overwhelmed and ended up detaining families in primitive, unsanitary conditions. And no one wants a repeat of that. Ron Vitello, former deputy commissioner of customs and Border protection, worries that Biden will cancel bilateral agreements with Mexico that have dramatically slowed the migrant flow right now decided that they weren't going to continue to help us. You know, people would start coming through like we saw the caravans two springs ago. There's no reason that it wouldn't come back as fast as it Wass. NPR asked a senior advisor to the Biden campaign. What would happen if the new president gave migrants of Green light? The adviser said. They're cognizant of the pull factor. Then there's the issue of the enforcers. Immigration agents have enjoyed extraordinary support from the White House, the Trump administration has bragged about unshackling them to let them do their jobs more aggressively. What happens if Joe Biden tries to put the shackles back on? That isn't something that the lights which you can't change culture within an organization that best overnight. Angela Kelly is a senior advisor to the American Immigration Lawyers Association. So I agree that it's going to be a long long road. A Biden presidency would also find itself skirmishing with conservative lawyers over its reversals. The way Trump has been tied up in federal court fighting the R. J. Hamann is with the Federation for American Immigration Reform. If Biden is elected, and his administration starts rescinding executive actions that Trump had firm legal authority to Dio groups like us will sue. That is a fact. Finally, there's the Pandemic and NPR Ipsos poll showed a majority of Americans support Trump's decision to shut the borders to all types of immigrants to stop the spread of the Corona virus. Biden has not said if he would reverse that order. So it's anybody's guess when the virus will subside and the nation can welcome immigrants again. John Burnett NPR news

"An event that occurred this weekend was really quite disturbing. which is the shooting at the conclusion of old timers day Brownsville? which is this terrific event ahead a chance to go once several years back kind of as a guest of Brownsville resident? It's is an amazing thing it's a great block party <hes> and Brownsville which is really one of the coolest most interesting and warmest neighborhoods of the city where people literally they come from Texas from all over the country back to the neighborhood they celebrate their friendships their family they talk about what it used to look people bring back pictures of old stores <hes> uh-huh and had these very textured nuance relationship with their their <hes> neighborhood <hes> it's a very popular stopping around for politicians because obviously a lot of people sitting around willing to take take your pamphlets and <hes> so we had this great event unfortunately marred by the shooting last week and then a conversation after that about whether this reflected on some some of the other issues that have come up in recent days around treatment N._y._p._d.. Officers by people with water buckets and whether or not cops are being told standoff smackers Asians by by the Sergeants Union had <hes> so we're going to have on <hes> speaker about that yeah. The city council member representing Brown's fills a leak amperage Samuel. She's joined us before talk about nature nature because she <hes> chairs the City Council's Public Housing Committee <hes> but this time she'll she'll talk with us more about her community. In Brownsville part of the Council Council district. She represents <hes> what happened in this in this tragic of violence that occurred really right towards the end of of the celebration on Saturday night and and then how the community is responding <hes> what she believes that her you know constituents need <hes> from city leadership resources <hes> you know I'll say before <hes> councilmember Samuel joins US actually when she was running for election <hes> the last election cycle actually moderated he primary debate in that's where in New York City especially in most Brooklyn neighborhoods <hes> you know the primary decides the whole thing I mean this was an open council seat and I got a chance to go out and moderate one of the debates I think it was six candidates. <hes> and the League Amber Samuel Wind up winning that primary <hes> by pretty solid margin <hes> but it was very interesting to be in the community there were there were the plate you know was it was small venue for the debate but it was packed and there are people really invested to see who the next council member was going to be here from the different candidates. We you know we really talked about issues particularly important to the to the Brownsville and surrounding communities which relate to access to healthy food poverty <hes>. How government is you know helping constituents constituents who who need help public housing of course which <hes> council member Samuel has worked in and now leads that committee so <hes> you know I got a sense of council member Rampart Samuel Pretty early on in that election cycle <hes> in two thousand seventeen and I was it was very interesting to hear her talk about some of these very issues that we'll talk with her? <hes> about when she joins US six years ago <hes> city and state and city limits teamed up to cover the two thousand thirteen election by focusing on areas of our voters. 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. You need a neighborhood that has almost exclusively black where many people were not upset about stop and Frisk and we're concerned about being pulled back and some but that was generational on some of it There is a problem but <hes> both at the appropriate response is and before we bring council Marie Samuel on the line momentarily just mentioned that <hes> later on the show will be joined by one of her city council collies Iliescu Council member Brad Lander also Brooklyn. WHO's GonNa talk to us about some different issues. Maybe some similar issues <hes> so stay tuned for that later in the show. We'll talk with Councilmember lander about city planning training school desegregation some of the other things that he's working on but now let's bring on city council member leak angry Samuel. Thanks for joining us here on Maxim Murphy. This is Ben Max from God the museum with Jarrett Murphy of city limit. How're you how are you? Thanks for having me good. Thanks thanks for being on <hes> council member. We were talking a little bit about out old timers day and what it is. I only went to once. I've heard a lot about it. 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. I'd say we had jazz night and then there's Latin night and there's a fashion show on Thursday and on Friday we had how a Hewitt who was the former lead of the Shalimar Lamar Group and <hes> you know we have thousands of people we shutdown Linden Boulevard and <hes>. There's a huge family fish fry where we feed the community community everyone gets to eat for free and <hes> and it's just a really amazing time in experience and on Saturday. It's the end end of old timers leak and this past Saturday we had several <hes> artists aren't be artists from the seventies and we ended by singing the O._J.'s family reunion like the last song that was played on Saturday night was family reunion and we just told everyone the crowd you know hugging. 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..

"Someday. Brownsville Brownsville, Texas, stealing seventy three today in Brownsville is different it. There is no place. I'm a geography nuts Depp. He will say when you were a kid. Did you love history? Now, I was obsessed with geography like this week this month, I've been studying the NEW GUINEA campaign, one of great joys of studying some of these military campaigns as you learn so much geography. Well, anyway, Brownsville is the only place in the United outside of key west. But that's not on the continent. It's the only place on the continental United States that has Equatoria weather. It's not the same same as Dallas or Arizona or anyplace else. I've had my eye on the weather and Browns. I always alter the winter. I look at look at Brownsville. It's insane. So someday, I promise you if I'm capable of doing. I'm getting myself a little condo in Brownsville. And I'll be there for. January and February because I've. The winters anymore as we get older as you're talking about Texas in general up until recently. In fact, this storm probably is going to change that they were the Lubbock had gotten more snow this year than Boston had. Funny times funny funny times again, you want to be part of the conversation. Comments questions, whatever it might be six one seven two five four ten thirty s the number six one seven two five four ten thirty or eight eight eight nine two nine ten thirty the toll free number eight eight eight nine two nine ten thirty. We'll before we get back to our conversation. We'll get Dan in Salem on the line. It's been waiting for a bit, Dan. How are you this morning? Great. How you guys doing doing pretty well? Started snowing up there yet. A little bit. Nothing too much. Okay. You know, two to four those were the good old days. You know? Yeah. We don't bought a slowing down a car forages. Right, mike. I think I do. You know, what I was living in Cambridge catcher rising. Did you play there? Oh, yeah. I I I'm proud to say I singled out Louis C K is somebody that's up and coming and I said. Have him open for me. I like him. Really? Yeah. The I love your history stuff. I just love this stuff. When I when I was a kid. I actually remember. I believe in you know. The thing that you're talking about peers. Isn't it true that president Pierce while he was? While he was president drunken road over some warming. On the carriage. That I don't know. I know that his son was killed in a train crash. Just be now. And this was hidden. No. You know? So what? He's the president, right? President do cannon. What did we got that? Lincoln. So I mean, I love history stuff that you do. I just woke up every time. I hear you. It's great. Thanks. And you know, it's weird to have a a comment that is. Three. Really? As usual. I really appreciate it. I take you for what you thank you. Hey question. Dan. Do you have a favorite president? Favor. President. Would probably be one. Can I have a picture of who it was? It was three days before he was assassinated. And it's just that that look. Was I. You know, he was so tired. You know? I mean, the poor guy. I guess that would be it. That's a good choice. Actually, I think Mike has a Lincoln story he'll be sharing a little bit. Now as as we're speaking. I'm I'm looking at up mental floss is the website. I just we'll see. Mu not have hit that woman with his carriage. It says. Right. Yeah. Pierces denied renomination by the Democratic Party in eighteen fifty six the only president to have been rejected so out of hand after being given the whole he has widely been quoted as telling you friend. There's nothing left to do but get drunk. Exactly. Yeah. Unquestionably drank heavily during certain periods is life and alcohol alcoholism contributed to a cost is death. Another story that Pierce ran over an elderly woman with his carriage is almost certainly false. According to historian, Peter Wallner, author of Franklin Pierce martyr for the union. Here's the quote, the fact that there are now newspaper stories about the incident. It wasn't mentioned in any correspondence convince me that it probably didn't happen while new told me. They say probably that leaves a little bit, right? No. Back at that point in time. Good to be president. Yeah. Almost as good to be be king. But it's good to be president. And you're right. Nickname was. Old old. Oh, handsome, Frank. That's right. And he was he wasn't married that I know he was married. In fact, his child was killed in a tragic train crash 'cause he was driving training. Well. Well, thank you for the kind words and keep listening. We're going to be well Lincoln story for you before we're done tonight. I sure hope so thank you. Catch. Your rising star was a great room. Wasn't it? It wasn't fat. Free. I I was writing for the herald in about communist spent a lot of time there over the years a great place. Hey, hey, thanks, Dan, be well, take care. I'll tell you my favorite catch story place. This guy I'm going to change his name. I love the guy. I still no change his name to Jones of. Okay. So Bobby Jones. It's not as last name at to protect the guilty. So bobby's has a habit of late of snapping at crowds, like losing an unstaged screaming and Fleming. I went to one show in Springfield and the staffers Santa you guys going to spit on the crowd sang, what are you talking about you guys planning on spitting on the crowd? And we finally got them to explain what happened the show had ended the week before with this guy. Jones had spit on the front stormed out of the room. So he's a good guy is a funny comedian. So he comes to an open mic catch just socially just to hang out. And he sits up at the dark corner of the room. And he's watching the show in front of him are two comics, and he doesn't they don't know that he's sitting right behind him. And one says to the other I had a rough night last night at such and such a club. And the other one says what happy says a Jones doubt. In other words, his name had become a verb. I snap. Oh. Yeah. Problem. And that's when I decided to move on. Yeah. To address this problem of my temper on stage, before of course, it was catch a rising star. It was Jonathan SWIFT's a great. Yes. And you mentioned Paul Butterfield. They open for him there. Teach you realize and professor Irwin Corey. And the Rick Danko band three different times. I opened now. That's a great and pretty motley sort meant. I thought professor Irwin Corey was really. Gifted and demented at the same time. Is that possible that makes gifted and demand? I remember him talking about guns worth the problem bullets with the problem. I remember that was one of the things the impression of a backstage, cutting the grass. Hour later got any grass. Well, thanks for being so friendly. I appreciate it. You know, you didn't say, you know, he's nice to meet you here. You're my opening act tonight, a good luck out there and for the rest of my life. I said to myself, even if the people don't like me, I'm going to introduce myself to the other couldn't performance for the rest of my life. Sadly, that's not a surprise that. That would have been the case. Of course, got any grass. I'm your opening act got Negras. I was at Jonathan SWIFT's again before became get your eyes. And I didn't good for you. Yeah. Been there a lot over the years. And I remember, I don't know. I I must have been covering it. Because I can't imagine why the particular at that particular time in my life would've gone Joe Tex is the headline act at Johnson the sex elects, Joe, Texas, excellent. Awful show. Joe's Melia, it'd chills Milligan in from some distance away. And. So the band's playing any he really is just punching the clock. And I don't know if you remember how it was set up Mike, and for people who were unfamiliar with the space, but it was kind of like a rectangular club with the stage along one or the short walls. And if you're looking at the stage from the audience on the right hand side was the bar and between the bar at the end of the bar between the bar on the stage was a pinball machine. I don't know if it was there all the time not, but it was there for at least a reasonable period of time of the big clubs lifespan and. Josiah's didn't have it. So I decided I'm bored. Play pinball. Plan. You know, pinball was you did that. Oh, so I'm I'm sitting here. I'm playing pinball. Suddenly. Joe stops the ban. And he goes into this extended rap about how the white guy on the club isn't paying him. In is ripping them off and trying to take advantage of the black, man. Meanwhile. You could hear a pin drop except for me in the conic is I'm going ping, ping. Do in trying to stop the thing. I've tried to stop it. I'm trying to make trying to find the volume which have tried to turn it down. I just think this is it I'm I'm not really gonna get out of this in the same kind of condition. I came into the I'm doing everything I never occurred to me that just. Jilted so it would stop. So he is going on and on about how he get ripped off by the club owner, and he's in. I know I've got this the sound effects the bells whistles, I learned after that don't play the pinballs would have this on regardless of circumstances are. Those one was just say sorry never gonna get out of here. Never gonna get through this again. Get dancing. Yeah. Get the answer. Joe tex. And also this this other. I can think about eight a couple of other little hits too. But not that night. Joe Joe Joe's, Mojo was not working that evening. I gotta tell you a two forty eight here.

Brownsville we say Brownsville rough because Mike Tyson was from Browns Browns will Brownsville was so rough Mike Catt to get out of Browns. And the people who play chess in the hood, the brothers, usually the cool guy dole guy. So they'd be talking to you trash talking the whole time you're playing and they're like Marie some chest. But your sister last night. The idea that the treadmill trash talk all the time. Is you get that in your head? You get used to being distracted by player while you're playing you just say cool. So now what I do commentary. I do the same thing. I try to bring that energy in that flow from the hood, you know, it's just normal. It's a game that many people have lauded as the ultimate think has game. You know, CEO's of said, you learn chess, and you learn how to defeat enemies in the boardroom you teach people chess tactics and life is that a thing.

Trump already sent more than two thousand national guard or the border earlier this year tobacco federal agents at the Brownsville VFW hall. A twenty year navy veteran named Juan Palomo wonders why active duty, and why now you have reserves and you have national guard. They use them every time that there's hurricanes flooding. What's the difference? Now, why don't they use them instead of taking people for active duty having a job to do already to come down here and police borders? The main caravan is estimated to have dropped from seven thousand to fewer than four thousand currently and it's still in southern Mexico but border agents. Say they'd been swamped with migrant families for months, brisk Cabrera is a local spokesman for the agents union. Everybody's making this huge deal about a caravan coming in caravans coming it's coming. We're getting five thousand a week in a real grand valley a week. That's a caravan in no self it's already here the problems here Cabrera is on the fence about whether the troops will help. He says the real problem is the asylum process that let's applicants linger inside the US for years, while their cases work through the overloaded court system yesterday. 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.

"Yes perfect so yeah it really wasn't i don't know from the production side no i think not only was there a big creative freedom there was a big financial freedom in that you know it's one thing when it's going to be financing smoke thing like see the money and be like we know this is going to happen and they're that fear was not there like it came as promise it came and so that also allowed for that creative freedom and for us to be able to just go out there and do do what we need to do and and go into the places that we wanted to go in brownsville to to make it happen so getting into the film itself i was on the edge of my seat the whole time but it's not a thriller and it's not an action movie like in a way it's a quiet movie so i was i was wondering from each sort of phase of production from screenwriting from shooting from editing were there things that you did sort of ratchet up a certain kind of tension i think from the shootings side of things a lot of the reference point so we kinda talked about were either you know for the bigger fight scenes you look at like raging bull you you know the rest are whatever you see those movies but actual depiction of mos universe is very intimate and very tight and so a lot of our reference points were like french movies like a profit or fish tank you know so it was really about like building a personal world in an intimate world for her and then having these kind of like team moments build out so at least from visual standpoint it was kind of how to make a sports film inside of a personal narrative and not have it be.
