Revisiting President Trump’s border wall promise
"Went and looked at the topics of the last presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Chris Wallace was the monitor. Here were the topics death and entitlement, immigration economy, Supreme Court, foreign hot spots and fitness to be president. Immigration You know, in the entire first debate, no mention of immigration in this next debate that's coming up Thursday. No mention of immigration in the vice presidential debates, no mention of immigration. Why Well for two reasons, number one because the people support President Trump's policies on immigration and number two They've been a resounding success. So God forbid, we actually discussed them on the national stage. Joining us right now is the acting commissioner of U. S. Customs and Border Protection. Mark Morgan. Mr. Commissioner, you tell me, but I mean, that's my take on Why No one wants to talk about immigration right now. Wish the president would talk about it a little bit more, because it's really one of the great success stories. Look, I think what as the commissioner, I could agree more your spot on and look, this is been on enforcement of all time. And I'm here as acting commissioner CBP and I can tell you that this is a completely a political statement and the successes that we have achieved and we have achieved. A lot of them on the immigration front is directly related to this president. And this administration giving us the tools and the network of initiatives and policies. We need to address the threat. That's a fact and talk about I can validate that. And I can confirm that with his many statistics there you are your listeners need. Well, Let's start with one of them that I saw earlier today, and this, I think, is the most resounding one. You inherited a lot of broken policies the administration did with regard immigration and the worst of them all, was the catch him released policies. In fiscal year 2019 you had to release over 230,000 illegal aliens who had been apprehended this year, 1000. That's in incredible. And then no, no, nobody. Those this nobody hears about this Mark Morgan. They don't learn your listeners to think about that. Think of 230,000 down to 1000. And why did that happen Because of this administration what Congress and I've said this for for the last two years, I'll continue say Congress has continued to fail the American people by passing a single piece of meat, meaningful legislation that would address this crisis and what happened there. That this administration did. They gave us the network of policies and tools we needed. And that's just not happening. Give you fact NPP the migrant protection protocol. Mainly, I think most people know that to be remain in Mexico that policy that initiative alone where we get Mexico to join us. His true partners was one of the cornerstones to change an end catch and release. One of the biggest pull factors like they knew that they made it our borders. We were releasing him that has ended completely as because of this administration. Of course, the entire immigration policy that the president proposed when he was running. Was well down to one issue, and that was the wall and we know you know, whenever I mentioned it, I always say, you know, he said he'd build a wall. He also said that he would enforce our immigration laws as written, which is frankly, more important than the Waller just is important as well. But the wall means something. Give us the latest on this wall where it stands right now. Ah, again, you're spot on. So you did do your homework on this one for sure is that it is about the rule of law That was still Congress to you Don't like the laws change him. That's your job, And I tell people that come after us What he coming after after us for we're just enforcing the curtain along the laws of the book that Congress passed, you know, like him additional petitioning. And and picketing in front of Congress, Not men and women of law enforcement. And right now it gets all naysayers. They said. It couldn't be done. We're at almost 375 miles of new Wall system and we're still comfortable with and is here As promised. We're going to be at 450 miles of new Wall system. It has been a game changer, Don't you Don't trust me. Go out and talk to the men and women there on the front lines. Protecting this border and you ask them, they'll tell you the wall was significant tool to be able to perform theirjob. Can you describe it Just because I know that there's a lot going into the border wall and the and the barriers there. How important if you can judge it this way. Is the structure itself. A supposed to that that I know you've got this wide expanse of cleared out area where you can drive your vehicles up and down the border for apprehension purposes, And that's almost as important is it not, sir? It actually is. We called wake all access roads, and that's why this wall is so much more than just steel and concrete going in the ground, and that's one thing we've been trying to get out there. It's just not amount of words. When we say it's a wall system. It has integrated lighting, integrated technology, state of the art technology and access roads if you ask a lot of border regions In some areas. It will be a toss up between the steel in the ground that access road, but luckily they don't have to do to use because it is part of Wawel system. They're getting all what's very important to is the wall system. It's actually part of a larger multi layer strategy of infrastructure, technology and personnel. A lot of people hear about technology. Well, guess what. We're doing that too. We've got a considerable amount of technology that we're on the Southwest border. I always say we need it all, including the wall.

Trump Administration Prioritized Border Wall Construction Over Other Options in Flawed Process, Government Audit Says
"Called President Trump's Border wall 1/14 century solution. They say artificial intelligence and new surveillance technology. Khun Secure the border without spending billions on steel and concrete. Now comes a government watchdog report that false customs and border protection for not considering alternatives to the wall. NPR's John Burnett reports. Trump's giant wall gets all the buzz. But customs and border protection is quietly testing a new generation of free standing surveillance towers on the Arizona border that could revolutionise border security. Telescoping towers are equipped with infrared and daytime cameras, along with laser range finders and illuminate er's that can zoom in on a target miles away for a close up there mounted in the bed of a Ford F 1 50 so they're completely mobile, and they can be operated remotely. They can tell an agent if the object moving north is a cow or a single migrant or a family camera. See, something is going to alert and send that information to an agent in the field. Directly. So if I have a phone now, my phone haven't app on it, And that information will come directly to me. That CBP is Kelly good as deputy executive director of the program Management Office. He's in charge of technology acquisition. I met him last march at the Border Security Expo in San Antonio, where domain awareness technology was the hottest gear with Trump's border wall Now approaching $25 million a mile, I asked Good. How much to the mobile towers cost, huh? The lesson 1,000,000 less than a 1,000,000. That's the same question the inspector general of the Homeland Security Department had last month, the watchdog released a report critical of the border patrols. Single minded fixation on a wall is the answer to border security. The inspector general wrote. Quote CBP is an ability to effectively guide this large scale effort poses significant risk of exponentially increasing costs. In fact, the audit said, Border Patrol insisted on a wall even though the agency's own internal analysis said technology and boots on the ground were smarter solutions in certain regions. Representative Henry Cuellar is a Texas Democrat from a border district where CBP proposes to build 121 miles of barriers. We now are in a time we can build this virtual border wall technology. We have that already. I mean, you got the autonomous surveillance powers. But there is a political pressure from the White House. They're saying build me the wall. Get me mild. Last week, Three landowners in the Laredo area filed legal documents in federal court trying to stop the government from condemning their riverside property for wall construction. One of their arguments is Thie Inspector general's report. Carlos Flores is an attorney representing the property owners. 10 years

Mark Morgan, CBP Commissioner Madeline And I've done some video interviews with Mr Morgan. Good people, man I truly appreciate you know how big my heart swells when I start thinking about border Patrol and customs and folks at CBP there an open book and let me tell you from somebody was on the front lines.

You know, they show you everything eighties and some of the weapons that they fire that you fire some of the weapons and get gun training. All that's beautiful people.

Portland Protests: Local Leaders Urging Feds to Leave
"In Oregon Governor Kate Brown and other officials are calling for the removal of federal law enforcement officers from the city of Portland. The Trump Administration deployed those forces, saying they are there to protect federal property in the city amid ongoing protests. But this week, officials from across the city and state and their congressional representatives have raised serious objections to their tactics. After camouflaged federal agents went into the streets with tear gas and tactical gear. Arresting protesters and taking some away in unmarked vans without the protesters have said explanation among those critical of the federal deployment in Portland, Oregon, Senator Jeff Merkley and he is with us now from Portland. Senator Merkley Thank you so much for speaking with us today. You're welcome, Michelle. Good to be with you. Well, you and three other members of Congress wrote last night to Attorney General William Barr and the acting Homeland Security secretary, Chad Wolf calling for these agents to be removed from Portland. Tell us briefly why you issued that calling. Have you gotten a response yet? This is an extraordinary circumstance. The customs and border protection and the marshals are deploying people to the streets of Portland. They're doing so at least the CBP forces, customs and border protection. They are marked just with a generic police. You have no idea who they who they represent. And then they're outside beyond the boundaries of the federal buildings, grabbing people on the streets, throwing them into unmarked vans, not disclosing even at that point, what agency they represent. This is the type Of unmarked paramilitary presence that you would expect in a dictatorship, not in a Democratic republic. It's absolutely terrifying to people. It's unacceptable. It has to end.

CBP Acting Commissioner Mark Morgan: immigration “daily encounters” in April decreased “more than 50%” from last month

"Them but I chose not to and instead they've chosen to release a few hundred. High risk detainees. But the problem is that isn't going to. It's going to save the lives likely. A few of those high risk detainees. What when Corona virus makes its way into detention centers and. It's already in more than a dozen nationwide. It's going to spread through. They're going to send many people to the hospital that is going to stress local hospital resources. That is going to make the risk of dying from Corona virus significantly higher for both people in detention at as well as for members at the local communities who are now going to see their local hospitals overwhelmed. Because I chose not to release people. Now you wanted to know what happens to people want their release attention so there's a lot of confusion around this. Many people believe that when somebody's released they often fail to appear in court or APPS. Gone to disappear but I've done. The analysis of this data and the reality is that the vast majority of people when they are released by ice return and appear for every single court hearing between two thousand eight and twenty nineteen eighty. Three percent of every single person was either released from detention or was never detained in the first place appeared for every single court here so less than twenty percent of people ever missed a single core Kerry and of those who missed court hearings. They often missed it because of government error. There's a lot of chaos and confusion inside immigration court system which has a one point one million case backlog and not nearly enough staff to ensure that all the paperwork is filed properly addresses are updated and things along those lines so quite often people miss court simply because the court didn't send them a letter in time one. Classic example of this is a study was done on people who had been ordered removed for Missing Court of Families who are seeking asylum in thirty six out of thirty six cases where filed motions to reopen to restart the hearing because an immigrant had been ordered removed for missing court. They weren't able to successfully reopen every single one of them because the fault was on the government and one great example of that was a person who received two letters in the mail. One day she had been released from detention. And told. We're GONNA send you a letter. Tell you when you're first court date is just make sure you go to your hearing and if you miss your hearing you'll get ordered deported. So everyday she checked her mail and then one day. She got two letters from the court. I was a letter telling her that she needed to show up in court the previous week and then the second was a letter telling her that she'd been ordered deported for missing that court date the previous week and so unfortunately that happens to a lot of people but what it really emphasizes is that most people. The vast majority of people when released from detention will go live with family lived with friends. They'll be able to socially distance and when the court hearing start up again. They're going to go to those court hearings and they're going to go through the process so a good follow up to that. Is what happening with the immigration courts. Right now it has been chaos in the immigration court system in the past six weeks. What's very clear is that they are the Executive Office for Immigration Review. The agency that controls the immigration court system was not prepared for a pandemic and it was not prepared for a world in which concentrating large numbers of people in tiny little courtrooms is not possible by early March. People were already calling for the courts to be closed because they realized that requiring people thousands of people every single day to dry from towns and local communities around the nation to the few immigration courts consist was going to be a public health nightmare but it took until Friday march thirteenth for to really start making any significant changes on March thirteenth. They suspended some initial hearings which would've affected probably fifty or sixty percent of all hearing scheduled in court and they put those on hold and then the week after that they suspended all non detained hearings which is about ninety five percent of all hearings but because they waited until mid to late March. The effects were already disastrous. At least two immigration judges have been infected with the corona virus. We know of at least one ice trial attorney which is essentially immigration court prosecutors. Who ADD is in at one? Point was in a coma I leave. She's gotten better though. I'm not sure. And we are almost certain that some immigrants went to court and likely became infected in community spread at small corporations. You know many people hear the word core and think of a big courtroom like they see on TV with you. Know essentially large amounts of seats in the back and a huge space but the reality is immigration. Courtrooms are usually in federal office buildings. They're small each courtroom may be fettes about a few dozen people at most. A lot of people like to crowd into really small waiting outside like being in the waiting room. But the doctor you're really crammed in. And so they were real doctors for community spread because it concentrate lots of people in small places and since then the immigration court system has still refuse to close all immigration courts requiring some people to continue to appear for hearings are continuing to go on in detention centers which continues to put judges attorneys and immigrants at risk brought this has also led to an unprecedented collaboration between the union that represents immigration judges the Union that represents ice trial attorneys and the Immigration Lawyers Association. Who Two weeks ago issued a joint letter calling for the to be fully closed and for all vital court matters to be transitioned to online hearings. Only a lot like what state and federal courts is done. And there's really one quote that catchers this desk from an anonymous immigration judge it was given to the Immigration Judge's Union. This judge who was a former military veteran said that I've never witnessed an utter lack of concern for people like I have here in my former life we treated captured Taliban and Isis could more humanity moreover I have never seen worse leadership. A crisis usually brings good and bad to the light. We have nothing but darkness. So as you can tell immigration. Judges are not happy with what their headquarters doing while. Thank you before we wrap up. Hamad I WANNA ask you about another part of the immigration system that has been affected by cove nineteen And to do that. I'm wondering if you can tell the story of Luis Molina who is a person you profiled in a piece you wrote earlier this week. Luis Molina is a fifty one year olds immigrant from El Salvador. He'd been scheduled to complete the final step in a year. Long Journey to become an American citizen on March nineteenth in Los Angeles. He was due that day to repeat the oath of allegiance to the US along with hundreds of other would-be citizens to give a little background. It's become a US citizen. Immigrants must go through this long and sometimes challenging process that includes an interview with an immigration officer test on American civics and English language but the final step is really really simple. Really easy It's repeating one hundred forty words in this celebratory event. That's often how than Cedars Convention Centers. Courthouses I've actually spoken at one. It's it's a really a lovely setting. But because of the pandemic these ceremonies have been put on indefinite hold and would be added citizens like Louise are worried about the chance to complete the process while thank you all for agreeing to get on the phone with with me today to talk about this. I know in your lives as immigration attorneys and reporters. You are incredibly busy at this time. We're running a little short. So what I want to do is ask each of you in turn What are you going to be watching for over the next several weeks? And what aspects of changes in policies that we've discussed that are cova specific. Do you think are going to stick around. And what do you think is GonNa Happen in the long and medium-term after the curve is flattened? Sure I think that the question of what happens in Mexico is going to be extremely important for not necessarily determining what the US's continued Boorda response looks like if we've seen one thing consistently from the trump administration. It's that no matter whether a lot of people are trying to come into the or very few they still take the attitude that anyone coming in is unacceptable crisis level a situation so we can expect that crackdown to last as long as they. Can you know uphold it against the courts if any litigation arises but how many people are trying to come in really is going to depend on? How BAD CORONA VIRUS? That's on the Mexican side. Even among among countries in the region the Mexican government was notably slow to respond. The President of Mexico has taken Eh is been one of the more weirdly blase leaders about the whole thing and so the chance that they that it becomes a serious ongoing problem in Mexico. That's now a very realistic possibility. So on the one hand that could have a deterrent effect on people travelling north through Mexico from Central American countries even from South America. Even what are often called extra continentals? People who you know fly from Cameroon or India into Brazil Ecuador and then travel all the way north to the US on the other hand. We've already were seeing an increase in people requesting asylum from Mexico as the security situation there deteriorated especially in states like Michio Akon and if that becomes if it becomes in endemic in Mexico in kind of a worst case scenario. It's totally plausible that a lot of Mexicans will try to escape to the US Corona virus. What the trump administration you know would decide to do in. That situation is unclear but it does mean that as much of a crisis footing as they're on right now in terms of the inner protecting exposure within the US. That could get much worse before it gets better Erin. The changes that are going to cost immigration system are unclear. I think you're going to see a lot of pressure from immigration restriction EST to cut legal immigration even further building what the trump administration has already done and expanding restrictions even more at the border. It's hard to see the trump administration lifting their new expulsion policy anytime soon. We know that absence a miracle. Corona virus is going to continue spreading across the world for months and likely through to twenty twenty one. And what that means. Is that as long as that's happening? The trump administration will have an excuse to continue doing what they've done wanted to be able to do ever since trump to caucus which is effectively shutdown all asylum at the southern border. So I expect that the so-called expulsions are going to continue for months or potentially longer absent a court order stopping them and when it comes to those held inside the United States the disruption immigration court system and immigration detention. We're GONNA continue out for quite some time but there will likely be significant pressure on the immigration court system from the White House to restart as soon as possible because every day that the hearings don't go forward the one point one million case backlog gets a little bit longer so inside the US. The disruptions could continue for months at the border. I expect them to continue barring a court order. leads to the end of trump's first term in office. In Hamad for me I'm going to be watching to see how corona virus spreads with a nice detention facilities. What the numbers look like in a week in two weeks in three weeks. And how ice handles potential outbreaks. In specific societies there are dozens of detainees who come down with Corona virus in single facility. What does the in that situation if these releases continue In what the numbers will look like In a few weeks the number of immigrants in custody at the same time. I'm really interested to see what. Uscis does in a few weeks and whether or not. They intend to open up their offices to the Public. Right now obviously. They're all closed in. What happens if they do open up these offices? What measures are they going to take to protect their employees to protect immigrants coming in for citizenship interviews and how they're gonNA handle a similar backward in citizenship and other really vital immigration Bassett's? We're GONNA leave their Dara Hamad. Aaron thank you so much for joining us today. Thank you thank you thank. You saw the l'affaire podcast is produced in cooperation with the Brookings Institution.

"Conditions for an infectious disease and so there have been already concerns about. It's spreading to migrants who are waiting on the Mexican side of the border Tijuana has really had it spread pretty actively There are concerns on the Mexican side of the Texas Mexico as well and then added onto. That is the question of what is happening to people. Once they get just expelled as part of this policy the Mexican Migration Agency doesn't appear to be doing a whole lot with Barrett taking a lot of responsibility. There isn't enough shelter capacity to easily build up and so the question is are people going to be actively dispersed to other towns which the Mexican government and international organizations have done some of in order to you know. Get rid of the crunch at the border. Are they going to be swiftly? Deported back to their home countries is they're going to be some kind of cluj together infrastructure that gets built up in the same way that a close together infrastructure kind of got built up for the folks that sent via remain in Mexico but fundamentally after an average of ninety six minutes in border patrol custody. Everything that we've heard from reporting from people on the ground is that people don't even know what happened to them they don't they don't know why they got sent back. They don't know if they're supposed to be. You know waiting or continuing to seek asylum or what age and so BA lack of proactive communication about this. Which does appear to be to a certain extent deliberate on the part of the trump administration lay their view appears to be that if they proactively communicate who is and isn't eligible to stay in the US that it's going to encourage smugglers to tell people how to get around the but the vacuum of information does mean that people who do get sent back. Don't have a great way to figure out what they do next now Hamad. Can you walk us through the last several weeks inside is detention centers around the? Us both for detainees in for employees es and again just give us the the scale in terms of numbers of places and people that we're talking about because I think that'll be really helpful for some unfamiliar listeners. Sure the mood inside. Ice Detention Centers has been incredibly. Tense Detainees hunger-striking protesting panicking about the potential spread of this disease within these cramped facilities. There've been allegations wag of so hand. Sanitizer HAS BEEN MULTIPLE USES OF FORCE. You know the deployment of pepper spray in these facilities in response to protests related to krona virus. In some places even guards are worried and have incomplete information on who has tested positive for grown of ours. I spoke with the first detainee to test positive for covered nineteen a few weeks ago and when I spoke with a Utah may the he'd been released at that point. He told me that he was convinced that others at the jail he was being out in New Jersey would come down with the illness and just a few days later. Somebody Nice detaining did those detention centers were there have been outbreaks. We've seen a few of these places where there have been a ten individuals who've been tested positive for for Calvin nineteen up to eight individuals who participate positive for cove in nineteen detainees especially worry One individual in a facility in Pennsylvania told me that he was losing his mind just in fear of what was coming next. So right now. Isis attaining Just over thirty three thousand people in hundreds of private and local county jails across the country that at this point is officials have reported publicly of a fifty confirmed cove nineteen cases within custody. That number's expected to to balloon in the coming days and weeks advocates book wave. That's you know. The number is actually higher than what's being reported. And there's allegations of a lack of testing lack of tracking these cases so the situation is really unfolding rapidly. So yeah there's lots of allow laugh to save what's been happening. And you mentioned that the first person who the first detainee who is diagnosed with cove in nineteen was released. Can you talk more about that? There's two things one litigation from immigrant advocates like the ACLU actually go into federal judges and getting orders force. Ice To release detainees in custody because they have underlying medical conditions or are elderly. Dozens of detainees that way at the same time I has been for the past few weeks looking through its roster Giannis for quote Unquote Vulnerable Emirates in custody is similarly elderly folks hope said found Rheinmetall conditions individuals were pregnant For potential release. I believe they found a six hundred detainees. If this oil and as of March thirtieth they released one hundred sixty detaining obviously advocates believe at number should be way higher given there are more than thirty three thousand immigrants in custody as Dara so just to kind of to explain. Why the pressure on ice to release detainees has been kind of so that has why. That's been the locus. Unlike people who are sentenced to a certain criminal sentence that is defined because ice detention is civil confinement. It's not entirely discretionary. There are some cases in which the law does. The people have to be detained but many of the people who are currently being detained don't fit into those categories. They're being detained because Isis made the determination that they would be a risk to public safety or that they would try to abscond and not up to their court hearings. There's a lot of evidence that those decisions aren't necessarily being made on a case-by-case basis that there are kind of top down directives to just detain everybody There have been lawsuits. The has brought in certain in the south in particular field offices. They're doing case by case determinations. The New York Civil Liberties Union recently revealed that they had found the foia evidence that the Algorithm the risk assessment algorithm that was being used to detain people. No longer spit out a recommendation of release. The only recommendations were detained and Asher supervisor and so what Isis doing by acknowledging. Now there are these there are high-risk who could be released. It is taking a step that it has not taken under the trump administration in being willing to you know to consider some people quote unquote save is of course those are. That's not to say that they're being totally unmonitored and does appear to be based on the risks of them contracting a virus while in detention rather than being based on. Okay you know. These are the lowest risks to escape. Detaining is as some kind of states and counties have been doing on that on the jail side but it has called attention to something that advocates Democrats have been saying for some time that I doesn't need to be detaining as many people as it does and that because it's all a matter of isis discretion. There's no there's nothing stopping it from releasing more people than it already has air. I want to turn to you to just ask follow up to what Daren Hamad. I've just laid out but I also wondering if you can explain sort of what will happen next.

"Are responding to cove in nineteen the changing legal landscape for those agencies before the pandemic and the challenges faced by migrants asylum seekers and the US immigration system during Corona virus. And it's the law fair podcast ice see. Bp and Corona response. Let's start with the premise. That the corona virus pandemic has significantly altered the situation on the ground. A little later in the PODCAST. We can probe whether or not. That's actually the case but with that is the premise. I want to begin with an understanding of the situation within immigration and Customs Enforcement and customs and Border Protection Prior to this crisis so with that. Dara can you describe the evolving situation at the border especially since the announcement of the remain in Mexico policy? And can you take until say the beginning of March when it became clear? The Corona virus would drastically impact life on this continent. What was the remain in Mexico policy? And how has it impacted the lives of migrants at the border and beyond so at the end of twenty eighteen then Homeland Security Secretary Christian Nielsen announced that the US was going to start sending people who who came into the US for the purpose of seeking asylum were caught by border patrol agents or presenting themselves at ports of entry back to to wait in Mexico for their asylum hearings non-mexican asylum-seekers since a lot of the recent wave of migration has been from what Amal Honduras No Salvador? This would allow them to have court dates. In the United States that they'd get shuttled back and forth into the US foreign Statement sent back to Mexico to wait. This started as much smaller policy. The Mexican government initially was trying to put limits on. How many migrants will accept but by summer of last year it became very widespread across the border. It's still fear radically in place for some populations even though with the corona virus restrictions on travel across the border. Nobody'S ACTUALLY GETTING COURT. Beats but the upshot has been that it started a trend that has continued through pilot programs that increased these with which people would have those claims heard and then get deported. The Cooperative Asylum Agreements with Guatemala Honduras El Salvador only Guatemala. One of which did actually been implemented and which has now been suspended because of the epidemic that all of these reflected a shift from the US engaging in either what it called catch and release. Which is he coming into the US requesting asylum and being allowed to leave iced and so being able to you know fight their case from within the community or having to detain people indefinitely to just getting people off US soil as quickly as possible it was basically a catch it expel policy some of those people did have access to asylum cases in the US for example remain in Mexico. Some of them were just kind of ordered deported swiftly but it allowed the trump administration to get people out of custody and avoid the concerns that were raised last year over conditions in border patrol custody over the kind of health risks that were posed when people were placed in these facilities that were quick to hold people and also to avoid the political damage. That comes with bad things happening to migrants on. Us soil as much as there was reporting from me and Hamad basically everybody else on the beat about the targeting of asylum-seekers return Mexico by smugglers as much as there was concerned that it was basically impossible to get a lawyer for your American court case from Mexico and lawyers aren't being given any access to their clients in courtrooms. There wasn't enough of a political outcry to really cause problems for the administration with that so it appears it appeared to have discovered that as long as you can find a legal way to get migrants off US soil. It solves a lot of the optics problems that are associated with having people come into the US Thank you Hamad. Your reporting has focused on the conditions of people who weren't expelled but who have still been detained Within the United States as well as the efforts that Dr spoke about to send migrants to third countries. Can you set the Pre Cova? Seen a little bit for us on those counts. Yeah I was saying. Before the pandemic the administration was really pushing full steam ahead with an agreement descend asylum seekers from Salvador Honduras. Guatemala hundreds had already been sent by February and the DA. Jazz was focusing on implementing. Similar deals with El Salvador Honduras. This was really the key. Focus making sure. These agreements were not only implemented but expanded to include asylum seekers from other countries like Mexico as administration officials believed it would be a deterrent to those making the journey to the southern border as far as the ice goes. You know the agency wasn't attending as many people as it was last summer when there was a peak of around fifty five thousand people in isolation centers of all time record. But I think it was about forty-one thousand in January there were indications There was going to be expanded Internal enforcement targeting sanctuary cities Which was likely going to make the ages even more of a lightning rod during a contentious election year. Obviously that's all been positive for them. D- think you so. The number has decreased from what it was last summer. But what was the situation? Legs of inside these detention centers for both employees and detainees going into the beginning of March. Would you feel comfortable speaking to say that you know as far as my work And I'm really focused on the medical care within these facilities and this is starting to become even more of a focus for Congress. Lebron an investigation opened into medical care with an ice custody. In December we revealed a whistle blowers claims that detainees were being given incorrect medication suffering from delays in treating a withdrawal symptoms. There was an individual who became so mentally unstable. Alas rated his penis required surgery followed on memo with an internal the age S Written by investigators out leading even more issues in a separate facility in New Mexico. So you could already see that congressional officials were going to be focusing on out within these facilities and Aaron. Now that Dr Ahmed have sketched out these policies. Can you dig into the how the legal architecture of the immigration system has changed since the beginning of the trump administration to as an endpoint a few weeks ago before the corona virus crisis really came into force? Yeah absolutely what we've seen under. The trump administration in many ways has been a dusting off and activating hidden weapons that were buried in immigration law decades or generations in the past we. I saw this in the president's first week in office when he relied on one thousand nine hundred fifty two law. Iana Section to twelve F to institute the first Muslim ban. That law had never been used in any way like what he used it in his first week and then We saw the effect of that had in the country and was eventually upheld by the Supreme Court nearly eighteen months later similarly with the remain in Mexico program The so-called protection protocols involves the dusting off another rarely used provision of the Immigration and nationality. Act that was added in one thousand nine hundred eighty six. The contiguous territory provision this law when passed in Nineteen ninety-six almost certainly never anticipated widespread programs. Used at the border to send tens of thousands of people back to way to Mexico and was as far as scholars can tell most likely putting the law in order for Mexican nationals who had problems entering the US that would require immigration. Judge to wait in their home country of Mexico and then come back to the border for one or two hearings to clear up whatever visa issue they may have had we also seeing similar things would be so called the silent cooperative agreements. That's another provision of law the safe third country provisions of asylum law that was added in Nineteen ninety-six and until now had only been used before an agreement between the United States and Canada with both of these provisions what the administration is down his take. Very broad statutory language and twisted even further creating wide scale and far reaching new programs that go far beyond what? Congress intended a good example of this is the asylum cooperative agreement with Guatemala and Honduras and El Salvador. All three of these countries do not have robust and strong asylum systems. We know that because many of these governments set at themselves and because of there is extensive evidence showing that yet the safe third country prevention requires the US government to certify that any person sent to those countries receive a full an affair access to an asylum process. So how can you send someone to these systems at through these asylum systems in Guatemala Honduras El Salvador? When we know for a fact that the systems do not provide a full and fair access to protection while you simply get the Secretary of Homeland Security in the Attorney General to sign a memo declaring on the basis of what evidence. We don't even now that these countries do in fact have full and fair asylum protection systems despite every single fact that shows to the contrary of course the trump administration has done this beyond just the border inside the United States. We've seen the public charge rule out provision. It's been in the law for more than a century. Essentially redefined in a way. That it establishes a brand new wealth test that will limit. Beagle immigration to the United States. We've seen an Isis gone actor. People who are taking sanctuary churches in order to avoid deportation orders and are utilizing provision law. That allows them to impose fines of up to eight hundred dollars a day for failing to depart the country which led to at least one person receiving a civil time for ice of more than five hundred thousand dollars now. They suffered a legal defeat in attempt to find them but they are still using these provisions of law which in many ways have never been used in similar ways before but I've been waiting and buried deep in the law for a long time ready for the trump administration to take a hold of them and Dara a lot of your reporting is source to people with Indie H S and within customs and Border Protection. How have they reacted to these to these upheavals? What's what's sort of the environment been inside the organization over these last few years and also GONNA kick this to Hamas at once. I responded because Hamad is is known within the beat for having ludicrously good the adjust sourcing but in my experience the overall attitude among you know among border patrol agents and officials is that they feel that they're finally being given the tools they need when the trump administration took office in two thousand seventeen and even before that when trump was campaigning. In Two thousand sixteen he made a big deal out of you know taking the handcuffs off immigration enforcement agents. There was this at the time was mostly in the context of ice because under the late Obama Administration. There were fairly well. Laid down guidelines are clearly down guidelines on who should be a priority for ice to arrest and deport within the United States but over the last year and change as the administration has implemented L. Abe's rapid processing pilots at the border. They've ended up giving a lot of authority to border patrol agents to decide what should happen to people weather. Somebody should be allowed to remain in the. Us sent back to Mexico to wait whether they should be put into a rapid deportation. Pilot won't give them as much access to an attorney as they would have in the United States or decisions that really are going to define the life or death of asylum claim and potentially if you the risk of getting it wrong is that you would determine the life or death of some of the person themselves. And they're being devolved down to border patrol agents. Don't have a lot of experience in this. You know there is some reticence. Among Border Patrol agents in having to like do the official work that was previously given to asylum officers pilot to have them formally take over. Some of those responsibilities has met with some frustration among both border patrol agents and asylum officers by in general because there's an institutional understanding among border patrol that most people who request asylum in the United States are either lying or like. Don't have a strong enough claim to be upheld. They feel that they're finally being given the tools that they need to have a flexible and effective response so that they're not being forced to hand over a bunch of people to get released into the United States..

"Each one makes you a little bit different little bit stronger okay todd so let's shift gears to talk about. CB P in general and then to the southern border in particular so what are the main missions of within within CPI. I mean we are the largest component within. Dhs We have sixty two thousand employees within VP. We have four operational components. We have the office of field operations operations that I lead. That's thirty thousand employees twenty four thousand of which are sworn law enforcement officers. We have responsibility at the lawful ports of entry. Those was three hundred and twenty eight airports seaports northern border southern border. That is our area responsibility. We deal with the trade the cargo the travelers who are coming through those was lawful ports of entry the second component the office of the Border Patrol about twenty five thousand agents they deal with the illegal crossings between the ports of entry there the the the agents in the green uniforms that you'll see you'll see out there are third operational component is our office of Aaron Marine and as the name indicates. They are pilots czar. Our boat operators are interdiction officers there and then our fourth component is the office of trade that sets the trade policy which we then execute within the office of field operations at the ports of entry so sixty two thousand employees total within CB peon rough budget rough budget the budget with field operations is six point five billion dollars. There's the overall budget with NC. BP over thirteen billion dollars I know because I used to be in the executive. Branch of our government does is a tough question but in the resources that you need well we always need more resources but within see BP I think we've been very effective in maximizing what we have adopting new technologies to meet the mission that we have we're we're rolling out technology such as facial recognition at the airports that is really helping us to identify those travelers that are of concern yet expedite those that are not we we have a great deal of cargo inspection technology that is quite advanced that allows us to increase our level of inspections so I think within see do a great deal to maximize is the use of the most the newest technology. That's out there that allows us to meet the mission so todd. What is Your Job Executive Assistant Commissioner for field operations. What does that mean well. I oversee and responsibility for all of the ports of entry for the lawful crossings that we have within the country so again thirty thousand people we process individuals that are trying to enter the country we process the cargo. That's coming in. We have responsibility for what is leaving the country as well so we are in all threats agency. The at the border are priority missions of course our counterterrorism first and foremost followed by narcotics interdiction. ensuring the economic security of our country that deals with our trade enforcement are agriculture protections those types of of programs then fourth of course is the facilitating the lawful trade and traveller in in and out of the country so so what's a typical day look like free typical days will focus on policy matters in terms of the actions that we're taking at the ports of entry will oversee a great deal of the enforcement actions we we seasoned credible amount of narcotics every day. We deny entry to people that are of concern for one reason or not will be engaged in those types of activities and then things such as the hurricane that we're dealing with now. CB P. has a tremendous response into the hurricane zone with our Aaron Marine assets to assist in the recovery of what's going on down there so in terms of counterterrorism. What's your primary concern is. The northern borders at the southern border is at airports. What's your main concern. Our primary concern is on the land border in the air environment. We have advanced danced information on everyone before even set foot on an airplane to come here so we can do a great deal of research and vetting on those individuals before the ever arrive. If there's individuals of concern we can even deny boarding so they never make it to a plane to come into the United States the land border. We don't have that ability the individuals present themselves from Canada Canada or from Mexico right up to the officers at the primary booth. That is the first time we have information on them. We will run our checks. We'll do our vetting. We will do our interview. it's a much different environment than what we see in the airport environment. I am more concerned with our northern border threats than our southern border threats in terms of the Counter Terrorism Mission the immigration system in the laws of Canada are very welcoming to individuals who certain parts of the world that we are concerned with we always want to make sure that they have been properly vetted by our Canadian partners before they before they avail themselves to different privileges that being within the Canadian immigration system afford them but from a counterterrorism terrorism threat. I have a greater concern for the northern border than I do from the southern even in terms of Canadian citizens becoming radicalized and then coming to the United States yes. I think that's an issue yes yes so I would imagine that your officers conduct operations every day that impact national security yes so the introduction of narcotics and terrorism peace. Can you give us an example of one of those sure I think in area that most people are not aware of is the the positions that we take within the international mail branches and the express courier hubs. FEDEX UPS UPS or DHL. Those types of carriers with the growth of e-commerce tremendous volume comes through that system so were two point two million parcels a day come into the country country through the mail and through the express career every one of those parcels could be a threat pathway for narcotics the fence and all that we've heard so much about for false documents for war you know monetary instruments false currency things of that nature so every one of those two point two million packages presents a threat for us. We use technology. We use canine. We use the officer intuition to try to screen out those that are of concern interdict but that is activity that takes place behind the scenes that most of the folks are not aware share of that is a very heavy focus of you find things every day. We find things every day every day. It's a target rich environment not only for those types of higher level threats but things such as the intellectual property rights things of that nature you know counterfeit prescription medicine we find a great deal of that we seize that turn that over to the FDA so we do focus because an awful lot on the male and the express curry environments as well as we do on the land borders so todd the southern border preps the best way to do this is talk about the flow of migrants greatness and maybe you could talk about the trend in that regard for higher officers have to handle that walks through that whole thing sure and you know just is to get it started again. I'll be speaking from the ports of entry so the lawful crossings but the trends that we see at those lawful crossings. Mir what we see between the lawful crossing the border. The border patrol handles yes sir so we go back to two thousand fourteen which was really win. The most recent wave of migrants started coming in two thousand fourteen. What we really saw a lot of was the unaccompanied alien children and in two thousand fourteen the majority of those were entering illegally between the ports of entry. The border patrol had responsibility to apprehend beheaded them turn them over to health and Human Services for care. it really was not an issue at the ports of entry two thousand fifteen. The floor is settlement was modified. We've heard what about the flora's settlement which set certain conditions for care of the migrants that are in our custody it also set certain limitations as to how long individuals can be retained in custody custody prior to two thousand fifteen the floors settlement applied only to unaccompanied alien children two thousand fifteen that that settlement was modified hi to include accompanied alien children so that's important because what we started to see then in two thousand sixteen was a large increase of family units adults traveling traveling with children because they understood that the changes to the floor is agreement also now meant that we cannot detain family units for longer than a reasonable amount of time which the courts have indicated is twenty days so visit Unaccompanied Alien Child. They're released within twenty days and now as a result of the two thousand fifteen modification family units are also released within twenty days so as a result of that starting in two thousand sixteen we began to see a huge increase in the family units that were coming across both between the ports illegally and at the ports within our ports of entry as well the demographics really shifted prior to that it was primarily adults primarily merrily of Mexican origin that we could quickly process and repatriate right back to Mexico with that change in two thousand sixteen we started to see the family units primarily from the northern than triangle which cannot be quickly repatriated they have to be held before they can be presented to an immigration judge for final determination as to their credible fear claims that started to really tax the system in terms of the volumes that we're seeing the custody the care issues so two thousand sixteen we really became quite overwhelmed with the family units it's so they show up at a port of entry and they raised their hand and they say I want asylum in the United States of America yes and what happens at that moment at that point are CPR BP officers at the border. We do not adjudicate those claims all we do is basically begin the process so we will fingerprint them. We'll take a sworn statement from them. We will take any of the documents Minson deputy documents that they have we will do our checks and then basically set them up for processing and they will then appear before an asylum officer with US citizenship ship immigration services but it takes some time from when they arrive at the port of entry to when they actually have that initial hearing in the interim each time is that I it can be quite it can be lengthy. You know it's definitely beyond the twenty days in which we're allowed to hold folks so we initially will turn them over to. HSI immigration and customs enforcement the enforcement removal operations. They're the ones that are responsible for the long term detention so they will hold the family units while they're waiting to be seen by. I and asylum officer officer and then a finally an immigration judge has the final say as to the merits of their claim that hearing maybe several years down the road so they're no longer held in custody either released into the community at several years they will report before a final immigration judge for that final determination so they know all of this they know all know all all of the when they show up and raise their hand and say seek asylum that they've got some lengthy period of time or they will allowed to be in the United States and and essentially actors Americans that's correct and again they know they will be held for a short period of time and then they will ultimately be released waiting.

"They're throwing up concertina wire. We know that the fact that their deployment is they're really there to back cbp custom's and border patrol agents. But the show of force at least in those pictures there, and in numbers, and in the president's word woods is in is one of a imminent. National security threat is the caravan a threat that the US military should be responding to no indication that it's a national security threat. Jim, you know, when you talk about a threat assessment, the military does threat based operations, they say what is the danger? What kind of things are happening? And what do we have to pose against that danger to prevent bad things happening all the threat assessments have been done on that have been done on this convoy show that it's not a national security threat. There are certainly people moving they don't know completely what that convoy is made up of but the amount of forces going there don't seem to be in line with what the threat analysis says it's straining the operational tempo of the force. It's degrading readiness of the places where these soldiers are coming from. And it's extremely costly. All of those things make a difference. And you know, the chairman has to give advice to the president. He gives his best military advice on what the president needs. When he says, hey, I'm the civilian leader. I want to do something president doesn't have to take that advice. But if he doesn't and he tells the military to execute they execute, right? Hey, they gotta they gotta listen to what the commander in chief says this is listen to what the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff listen to how he described the. The mission. And I want to get your response. There are there is no plan for US military forces to be involved in the actual mission of denying people entry to tonight'd states. There is no plan for for soldiers to come in contact with immigrants or to reinforce department of homeland security as they are conducting their mission. That is not what the president has said at his rallies to cheers. He's talking about soldiers. They're defending the US against this invasion. What do you hear there in general Dunford's words is is that sort of a quiet? I don't wanna say protests. But but correction, even as to what the US military's actual role is. Yeah, I think it's a little bit of nuance. Jim I also heard German done for yesterday and the other things he said was I'm looking at the legality of this. And he is I mean, he has to do that he has to take a look at the legality and the course of actions that he gives the president. What he what he said? Just now to me as a military guy said, hey, here's what the force is going to do. And I'm going to tell my subordinate commanders on the scene in northern command and the joint task force that comes out of northern command led by three star. Army general rules have been gauged are important. The law of land warfare is important posit Comitatus is important. So you'd better be obey. Paying all those things, and they will not be placed against any kind of immigrant coming in that is the border patrols job. So these x number of troops that are going to be there. We'll certainly support the border patrol that's their mission. But I think there's also some optics going on when you take a look at this. Well, that just amaze me, the number of public affairs soldiers that are part of this deployment is way beyond what I had for thirty thousand task force soldier task force. In fact, I'm glad you mentioned that so so you you were fighting the war in Iraq. During the surge you had fewer public affairs agents by a long shot that are sent here.
