Inside the border's migrant detention center in Clint, Texas
"Although president trump was forced by the courts a year ago to end his administration's rations policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the U._S.. Mexico border recent reports from the border have described hundreds of children teens and toddlers being held in squalid conditions at a border patrol station in Clint Texas. Our guest today is New York Times immigration reporter Caitlyn Dickerson who's been reporting on the overcrowded and unsanitary conditions at these migrant detention facilities last year Dickerson was among the first to reveal that the trump administration had instituted attitude policy of separating families at the border. She recently reported for The New York Times T._v.. Show the weekly on a four month old boy who was taken from his father Caitlyn Dickerson joined the New York Times in twenty sixteen before that she it was an investigative reporter for N._P._R.. Where her work was honored with a peabody award and an Edward R Murrow award in today's Times Dickerson reported that officials from Ice Immigration and Customs Enforcement told her they planned to begin deportation tation raids this Sunday targeting I at least two thousand migrants who recently entered the country but didn't show up for court hearings well Caitlyn Dickerson welcome to fresh air? Let's start with the conditions in the border station at Clint Texas X.'s. How do we know what conditions were like? They're so we originally learned about the conditions in the border patrol station in Clint Texas from a group of lawyers who were given access to the facility not to do an inspection but to meet with children who were being housed there they got access under an ongoing federal lawsuit that sets the standards for how children can be held in immigration detention being interviewed about sixty kids and then this kid's described a lot of sub standard conditions beginning with the fact. They said they were malnourished. Every child that the lawyers interviewed said that they had gone hungry at at least some point during their stay there they were basically given three small meals a day. <hes> regardless of their age the youngest child the lawyer saw was five months old. The oldest was seventeen and then the children also said that the sanitation was very bad that many of them hadn't showered at all all since they crossed the border weeks earlier they were wearing the same clothing they weren't allowed to brush their teeth and not only that but there were infants who are being cared for by other children so the infants in the facility had either been separated raided from family members they'd cross the border with or they were there with their teenage mothers and the separated infants had to be taken care of by somebody so they were being taken care of by other children so we originally learned about the conditions from these lawyers we reported those stories but then short after <hes> Inspector General reports from the Department of Homeland Security that had been prepared even prior to the lawyers visit to clint started to come out and they documented the exact same thing so at that point we had the inspector general reports to corroborate the conditions and then finally <hes> just last week the Times embarked on a big investigative reporting effort where we talked to border patrol agents who worked at Clinton and they to describe these conditions for us now this ended up in court. There's a famous bit of tape at a this is U._S.. Appeals Court <hes> you want to just describe what was happening here. How this got there sure so the now famous exchange in court had to do with something called the floor as settlement settlement? That's the federal lawsuit I described that sets the standard for immigration detention of children. It's a lawsuit that was filed in the late nineteen eighties and settled in the nineties but has been litigated in an ongoing way ever since because the judge determined in that case that the Department of Homeland Security and the health and Human Services Department had to maintain a certain set of standards in taking care of children and the judge also gave the lawyers in the case the plaintiff's lawyers the ability ready to check in on the government and make sure that they were holding up their end of the deal and so- periodically all these lawyers end up back in court because the plaintiffs will say that the federal government hasn't been maintaining the standards is that the judge required and so in one of those hearings that took place in June you heard federal government lawyers arguing that the government should not have to provide things like soap or toothbrushes in temporary holding facilities like the Border Patrol station in Clint Texas. The government lawyers justification was that these are temporary facilities kids are only going to be there for a few days and so therefore it's not necessarily required wired in order to maintain you know what the judge asked for which was safe and sanitary conditions that the government gives soap or toothbrushes in those temporary places as opposed to longer term facilities those weren't in dispute the three judge panel who was listening to the arguments very openly balked at the lawyer's argument and really seemed to openly struggle to wrap their minds around how the government lawyer could possibly think that something like Sopra toothbrushes refreshes when be required in order to keep these facilities safe and sanitary and this sort of back and forth between the lawyers and the judges went viral so let's listen to a bit of the sound. This is from a hearing the Ninth U._S.. Circuit Court of Appeals <hes> the judge judge will hear from speaking as a wallace to Shema in. It's interesting that he is addressing this issue because he himself was interred in a Japanese internment camp in World War Two. Let's listen it's within everybody's common understanding that you know if you don't have a toothbrush if you don't have so if you don't have a blanket it's not safe and wouldn't everybody agreed to that you. Do you agree to that well. I think it's I think those are there's fair reason to find and those things may be part of our apart. What do you say maybe there are circumstances? Where person does need to have a toothbrush toothpaste until for days? Well I think in custody there's free. It's frequently intended to be much shorter term so it may be that first order terms day and see B._p.. Custody that some of those things may not be required. I don't think that was the situation of course confronted I mean. It wasn't as though those people were there for twelve hours then moved onto the Hilton hotel knowing they were there for a very fairly sustained period and at least according to the evidence that the judge believed they weren't getting these things for a fairly sustained period so Caitlyn Dickerson has this resulted in judicial orders or is there ongoing litigation around the conditions in Clint. There is ongoing litigation so we're still waiting for an order order over the exchange that we just heard around specifically toothbrushes and so in these border patrol stations that act as temporary detention facilities but it was pretty clear it seems based on the reaction of the three judges in court court that they will in fact aside those are items that the government needs to provide with regard to clint when the lawyers who were involved in this flora's lawsuit left Clint they went back to their home states and they started working up a new motion which which they filed it was a temporary restraining order that they requested hoping to get access to all the facilities where customs and Border Protection Federal Agency at issue here houses children and to make sure that that all of those facilities are maintaining flora's standards and if they're not to immediately bring them up to standards that temporary restraining order was granted and a judge ordered that a mediator go in inspect all of the facilities and make sure at that they are indeed maintaining safe and sanitary conditions and so that process is underway right now. I think it's quite possible that in the next few weeks we may see even more litigation because there's so much attention and right now being focused on the facilities that customs and Border Protection runs especially those that house children and the Inspector General reports that I mentioned earlier suggests that the conditions in Clint were not unique that a lot of the same same issues are popping up in border patrol stations across the southwest border and so I think it's likely that you'll see the floor as lawyers continue to to fight those conditions in court and try to get them addressed right. I mean the the government responded by moving a lot of the kids out of Clint and is it. Do we even know where they went so yes so at the time there were about three hundred kids in clint when the lawyers went to visit within a few days the government had transferred about about two hundred fifty of them into the care of the health and Human Services Department. That's the federal agency that's responsible for housing children long-term and is in general more equipped to do so some of the kids who are in Clint. We don't know the exact number bird but it's a handful were sent to a different border patrol station. It's a newer one it's called El Paso station one or rather its new expanded and has newer facilities that are designed to house children and families and so thinking was conditions. There would be better but it's worth noting that El Paso station one came up in those inspector general reports and again you know issues with health and safety issues with basic sanitation were prominent and and the other important thing is that <hes> though the majority of kids were moved out of Clint in the aftermath of this sort of backlash against the conditions there the government almost immediately started moving other children into clint. They emptied the facility and then started filling it back up very quickly after and again you know it's very difficult for us to get access to the facility to understand how much it's improved. We think that the population count is lower that it may not be as far above capacity as it once was is but beyond that we're left to request information from the government and hope they give it to us. It's probably worth going back to what this facility was built for. In the first place it was never intended for keeping families long-term right Lord. No this is a border patrol station that was intended to house at maximum one hundred adults and the population that the government had in mind when they built the station was was adult men <hes> this is a population of border-crossers of your if you will I mean <hes> for for decades historically. The vast majority of people who cross the border were adult men on their own who were looking for work and who were trying to cross the border illegally Wrigley so their best hope was to sneak pass border patrol agents get into the country get a job and start sending money very often back home to family either in Mexico and Central America.

"Crisis really has hit some kind of critical mass remember what what art bell used to call it the quickening where things just start going out of control we're seeing pictures from the border and Clint Texas of people literally standing room only in the cells and and you start to wonder what is going on how could this have happened when under a year year ago two years ago if it was as bad we didn't know about why is this happening now is the question and there's an answer out there as a matter of fact Steph W. kind a reporter Axios and actually was dot com ask that very question and she's answering it to an axial stock com and staff W. kite welcome back to the mark Mason show thanks for having me I just love this article because it really kind of crystallizes you know what what's going on down there it's not just one thing but a lot of little things that add up the one big thing is that it really is and that's your pointing out most of the focus has really been on these intention counters and needs treatment of families and kids and this is off you know I was in a class one many cases only one we're having child migrant die in government custody but what I really want to do is take a step back and figure out how did we get to this point because even just a few years ago DH up looking even really tracking the number of kids and families coming across the border from central American countries overwhelmingly for decades the majority of people who are crossing the border illegally at the southern border were single adult mac they can but now we have these families and kids from central American nations and that's really changed the way our immigration immigration system works and and factor in regions of the myth is that quite set up to handle that but as you said there are many reasons as to why we're saying that many many kids and families crossing the border from the nation both push factors reason why they're leaving and pull factors which are reasons why they're coming to the U. active particulates so the interesting I see if if you give a little thought it starts making sense the push and pull factors of see that's just a technical term that we lay people we wouldn't even be aware of or even you know maybe even dare to think about give us an idea of what some of the push factors are push factors that that many immigration expert the lawyers and former officials who I spoke to our of course violence there really high homicide rate in nations like one Amala and hunger if not found the door those are three nations where the majority of my friends have been coming into the you asked for you know we've we've seen the outside right wall lightly in Guatemala and Honduras but still outside the norm longer and have that have the two highest homicide rate in the world in twenty sixteen at the latest data we have there's also a lot of poverty in these nations more than half of the population of Guatemala is below the national poverty line and doc often linked to gang violence as the wow when there are job of people are in poverty I'm gaining become one of the best businesses out there the only businesses out there and another thing that these nations often rely on agriculture there are a lot of families and in areas of Guatemalan under itself I would or that relying on the few that they themselves farm and there's been a lot of drought and and many of these agricultural areas in the nation which is which has resulted in a lot of starvation Guatemala for example has one of the highest malnutrition rate in the world you to scratch the surface because you talk about other things as well but that drought and starvation really starts to hit home when you think about those countries that are closer to the equator and and where climate change may have a great effect in and we keep hearing that in the years to come if the summers get hotter and hotter it's gonna push these these people since they take the path of least resistance they want to go to a cooler climate and and that's north in so you know we may be seeing more of this just based on what could be climate change the other thing you really had on the as well as a push factor is a coffee rust are you think again these are things none of us would ever be thinking about here in Portland Oregon yeah something that happened in the early you're twenty Chang those around twenty twelve ash when the copyright you really the coffee plant in Guatemala particularly and other central American nations out where it's it's a fungus that grows plants and basically devastate the coffee crop in these nations are really rely on the coffee industry they're they're one of the world's biggest coffee producers we often she drinks well I'm honored Honduran coffee ourselves if you if you pay attention to where coffee is coming from when you go to your local coffee shop and this was a big deal until we've actually seen there's been reports coffee growers leaving for the U. active fighting that not words anymore we need to go somewhere else again our poverty and starvation and because their crops have been ruined still see other thing now is the pull factors and I'll and I'll get us the the pull factors that America is the great shining city on the hill it's it's a safer journey going up through Mexico than going south and and you talk about trump's actions as a pull factor as well but it's it's kind of like a negative the turns into a positive for these these migrants these refugees as they will because of the president's threats they feel they have to head to the U. S. now because if that wall is built we'll never get there absolutely and this is something that I hear a lot when I'm when I'm speaking with immigration officials or OR Immigration Act birth they say there is this sense of urgency right now during the child ministration because trump has tried so many times to curtail asylum seekers and oftentimes after third being held up in the courts people feel like they need to go now before the court you know allow trump to do any of these things you try to do that would make it more difficult for immigrants to gain asylum in the wetness also something that that's modelers will use their benefit as well my mother's look how migrant you should come now you should pay any looking to act now I can I can get you there by better move quickly for trump institute the thickening qualities that are rumors it's hard to tell exactly how much information is traveling from U..

"Times about the facility in Clint, Texas. There are hundreds of children children being held there in conditions that they don't have beds. They don't have so they don't have adequate food, and it's just it's a disaster. The our government actually argued in court in the ninth circuit court that the amenities such as soap in toothbrushes shouldn't be mandated under the legal settle like settlement originally created about families migrating us housing them. So when we talk about never again and I know that this is annoyed her a lot right now. If you're in that chamber. But when we talk about, never, again, our government is, is in court arguing against people's humanity, and that is something that we as a country are going to have to live with for the rest of our lives and some. Times, you know, people love to talk shit about Hillary, but I guess they really were a basket of deplorables. That's what I'm saying, and I'm always one to, to always say that we need to be able to speak to each other from place of love, but when you can actually see someone's humanity then you don't deserve that, you know, you are a basket of deplorables, and regardless of what the economic or social reality that you're facing or not facing the, you're okay with that tells me everything about where we are. And, you know, an honestly, regardless of whether you're your backyard's deplorables, or you're someone that is choosing to say, well, this is just gonna pass by in soon as Trump's not there anymore. This is all going to disappear lies that infrastructure that they're using to warehouses, these these, these children wasn't built by the Trump administration. It's built by the Obama administration. Right. So that, when you know so, at the end of the day, it's about who we wanna be as a country. And that includes all of us those that are identify with any of those labels and those of us that don't. Right. Because the reality is. Is that what we are saying this time in our country's history that it's okay to go back to a time period where we dehumanize people when we jail them completely because that's what we're doing. And we don't wanna talk about the fact that, like, look at the end of the day, there is a there has been a coup in Duras that happened several years ago under the Obama administration and we look the other way on just let them install, you know, the next president, even though we knew they were corrupt as they can be. And we've looked the other way for decades we've looked the other way for decades, and the same thing is happening. What am I LA the are real refugees? We have completely changed the tenants of our international framework overnight, and yet, we have Democrats at still wanna negotiate with this administration as if these normal time, like they have figured out how to get the entire business community behind behind them on this because if it's a profit, it's a profit in this country in what we're Pioli saying what, what some parts of our country are saying, Gina is that money is. More important. I'm okay. Venezuelan's like that is a huge humanitarian crisis in there. Most of the asylum seekers were coming over the people were lives to be here. And we're just going to turn them away because we decided to change the definition of asylum, like it's just utter bullshit. It is such utter bullshit. And Democrats got us here Republicans got us here.

"He'll talk about Democrats wanting quote unquote open borders wanting to let everybody in. So if I could yet they already I mean, as soon as Castro made those comments on a debate stage trumps campaign manager fired out at tweet saying, oh my God. Democrats are four open borders, but that's not entirely accurate. I mean it's not accurate. So what Castro's thing would do is yes, it would repeal thirteen twenty five a work actually supports repealing part of their team twenty-five specific to the asylum bit of it. But there are multiple other laws on the books that allow for border officials to criminally charged migrants if they're trying to enter between ports of entry for them to DOJ for those. Chargers. And as Castro tried to illustrate in what his response might be if he ever somehow face Trump, which a lot of don't expect him to be the nominee. But if you were to face Trump, he said that, look that's a right wing, put right wing talking point. He also argued that there's no way we have open borders when we have some six hundred miles offense seen drones on the border, thousands of personnel. So that is how Democrats might respond to that attack. More than one hundred children. You were speaking of those migrant attention centers. More than one hundred children have been returned to aboard that border station in. Clint Texas, that attorney said had standard living condition immigration attorneys, who have visited there reported that there weren't enough toothbrushes toothpaste, or soap children, kept in filthy, clothes dirty diapers, many not bathing and weeks. Their diet consisting of instant noodles, and frozen burritos, Edward the initial reports of what the attorneys have called inhumane conditions did come out about. A week ago. What's happened since then? And why are these kids going back? Well, they actually held a toll for reporters on Wednesday of the Clint of the Clint site, the notorious site in which report is allowed to interact with the children. They weren't allowed to roam unrestricted and felt that that had the failed pulled over there is. So there's been a push back by the CB, but I absolute no evidence that the, the system is changed. And as you say the ACLU and the union representing side offices is suing for inhumane conditions at these centers of which, there are many, many across across the border area. Why are those kids going back though? I don't think frankly we have a good answer for why those kids are going back. I think the administration, perhaps would say we have nowhere else to put them, but frankly, I think you raise a very good question to any of my colleague. Hear of any idea why I think going back, I don't think that we've received an answer from the administration on why that's happening. And this is also part of the larger debate..
Castro, Laura And US discussed on 1A
"Photographs of father and daughter drowned in the Rio Grande have rocked the US and could have a critical impact here in Washington DC, the guardian reports that Oscar Albert Martinez Ramirez, brought his twenty three month old daughter Lyria to the US side of the river before jumping back in to get her mother. The toddler jumped in after him, he turned to rescue her and both were swept away by the current Laura. Horrifying and tragic things like this, unfortunately happen regularly to migrants. Why is this moment resonating as much as it is because it was captured in a photograph, and it was also, it's also because it comes at a time when there's a lot of scrutiny on the detention centres for migrants. The one in, in Clint Texas has received heightened scrutiny because of the lack of standards for the migrants there when the Democrats were down in Florida in a lot of them have gone to the homestead detention facility, which is a for profit facility that houses migrant children and Warren, when she visited the day before her debate she said that when she was able to peek over since none of them have been allowed in, even though they requested to toward the facilities. She said that, quote, it looked like you know, the children were little soldiers being marched, you know, across between facility between. Buildings. So this has been getting a lot of attention in the debate I just wanna point out that the first night, holy Castro really shifted the field by bringing up thirteen twenty-five law, which is he supports the decriminalization of border crossings for migrants, so treating it as a civil as opposed to a criminal offense. And a lot of candidates have now come out in support of that he was the first to do that he called on all them to do that warrant supports it. The second night, I think seven out of eight candidates on stage said that they support that as well. So he's been affective pushing his fellow democratic contenders. Let's hear that clip of tape that you referenced it was an exchange between Hooghly on Castro and former Representative Beto work on the immigration plan, be very clear, the reason that they're separating these little children from their families. Is that they're using section thirteen twenty five of that act which criminalizes coming across the border to incarcerate the, the parents, and then separate them? Some of us on this stage have called to end that section to terminate it some congressman or Rourke have not. And I want to challenge all of the candidates. Do that. I just think it's a mistake. I think it's a mistake, and I think that, that if you truly want to change the system that we got a repeal that section if not, thank you. Then it might as well say, Cheryl that seem to as lower mentioned impact candidates answers on last night's debate stage. Many said undocumented immigrants with no criminal record should not be deported. And all ten onstage said they supported public health care for the same group. So how will some of these positions that they've laid out on immigration? Do you think shape the race moving forward? Well, I think if on custom accomplishes, nothing in this race, he has accomplished, putting this issue on the table for Democrats to discuss. And he has basically set the benchmark for what will be the democratic position, which is that we should not criminalise crossings across the border that they should be treated as civil matters. So going forward, I think we will see Democrats embracing that position increasing. Early. But I also think, as at mentioned a lot of these positions are going to make great clips for Donald Trump when he runs for

Lawyers seek access to Border Patrol facilities
"We arrived at the facility last, Monday morning, we were told by CB officials and their lawyers that there were more than three hundred fifty children detained at the facility, which has a capacity for just over one hundred and was designed for adult and not for children, the same facility that news and Clint Texas, and we demanded an inspection of the entire facility, we wanted a tour and CB flatly rejected our requests on what grounds would not let you if there's nothing to hide. Why not let you go around if there's nothing to hide why not let us inspect the facility? I've done monitoring visits of children in federal immigration custody before all of my previous visits. I have been able to go on tours and tours were made available to inspectors like me. I mean I guess that it's after. Basically a when we when I was there last week Monday through Wednesday so especially been about a week.
