How Writer Karla Cornejo Villavicencio Maintains Control of Her Narrative
"This book was a longtime coming. Why right now? Well it wasn't a long time coming because it didn't WANNA write it. It was like a My parents came to this country to for me to have a better life Not to dwell in the migrants of my life like I wouldn't have been an immigration lawyer. You know that's that didn't feel like the proper repayment for my parents sacrifices. It was in far enough away from their migration and I felt like a proper repayment. And that's how I thought of my life that's why I still think of my life for their migration was something so far enough from their migration that it would make gum them not remember the trauma and so writing about immigration was not it and so just wrote about music for a long time and I wanted to be the guy in high fidelity in I was like this is me. I started writing this book in Two Thousand Sixteen because because trump happened and I thought I was the best person to do it. Because I didn't have someone like me to guide me as a teenager when I was undocumented in college I knew stuff was going to get really bad. I had no idea how bad it was. Get but I just was troubled by the idea that there is just. This was all going to go down and there was nobody like me who is going to say like the things that. I ended up saying my book because there was a lot of writing about immigrants would. We were expected to be patriotic. And we were were expected to be apologetic and we were expected to prove that we were good citizens and where we were expected to be grateful and that made me sick and I was like we are not like I'm not GonNa let the stand you right in the introduction to the undocumented Americans that you wanna give the reader permission to be punk. When was the first time you gave yourself permission to be punk? I've always been punk. I never accepted the have never accepted the title of a dreamer even when before Daca existed even before I could be like. I just don't feel comfortable with you. Know the way villain is as my parents and discharge transacts in like a narrative of innocence. I was just like Mike. I don't actually like Thought it was cheesy. I'M NOT GONNA call myself at people would invite me to things like where I would have to show a cap and gown and I was like I'm not GonNa fucking do that like Kurt. Cobaine with not to unlike bunk and a lot of ways but the way I define like being punked myself. Is that you understand that your accomplishments are not just your accomplishments. You understand that you belong to a community you understand that the world is a system you understand that the food on your table came from somewhere and you can envision the last hands that touched the food before they enter the package that you just open and that it's kind of like your haunted like you're haunted by your relationship to all of the people in this In this world and You Act accordingly and it also means like not giving shit about what people expect you to act like in order to fulfill a political or corporate goal or something so one thing that like has always kind of disturbed me has been like the Portmanteau that has the prefix undock you like undocumented. Roy or like on you something because that seems like branding and I just want like undocumented kids suggest like just be individuals like understand that they can be a part of a community but understanding. They also don't need to perform anything for anybody that they don't need to be consumed and at the same time you say. The dreamers have taken up a disproportionate amount of space in the immigration discourse. Well that's the media's fault that's not the dreamers felt talk to me about that well the media has been obsessed with them like I understand that that like I'm not bill nizing anyone but any specific person or anything but like you know of course it makes sense that you know kids doing sins in caps and gowns and showing their diplomas showing their grades. And that's for her sympathy for White Middle America when I was undocumented and I was a kid I remember being in like Eighth Grade A. Medallion bit was was like the Dream Act is going to pass. He was so sure of it. Now is thirteen years old. I'm thirty now. And the reason why he told me. The Dream Act was going to pass is because Americans love children and Americans love academically achieving minorities and I remember in two thousand sixteen when we had those marches for comprehensive immigration reform. My Dad and I walked with all those immigrants and people didn't go to work. People were risks. They're losing their jobs. And we all in white because we thought that would make us look not menacing. That's just branded in my brain. Just all of us marching down like just down lower Manhattan like all of these crowds and we were not afraid and people had like Mexican flags and then there were like. Don't your Mexican flags because people are going to be think that you like? You're not patriotic. My Dad made these t shirts that he had bought in bulk in Chinatown that had like the American flag on them. In the back he wrote we are the American Drina distributed them to his his undocumented co workers at the restaurant where he worked at and we wore those t shirts. And it's like we are not the american dream because it doesn't exist and i feel like the media's enraptured with dreamers because dreamers suggest that the american dream does exist that come here. You assimilate he go to college. You join the military and you know the American dream happens. But the camera doesn't stop filming. You know like after that. It's like well what happens. That guy is a temporary solution even if there was a dream. Act like what would happen. Is that these kids. We have to take care of our parents. We have to take care of her elderly who are sick who have been doing manual labor. Many cases for decades with absolutely zero safety net even though they've been paying taxes And we have to pay for them out of pocket and you know this idea that lake the possibility of inherited wealth which really is the American dream is unattainable for us because we have to take care of our

Learn more about JCs Private client group at J C F And why dot orc? We say Bloomberg brings you the latest financial and business news anywhere. We've actually given the matter quite a bit of thought. Let's get now to a guest joining us from Bangkok. She joins us on the phone from the Hudson Valley. Bloomberg Radio. Bloomberg the world is listening world markets headlines and breaking news 24 hours a day at Bloomberg, calm the Bloomberg business Radio com and I heart radio ads and a Bloomberg Quick Take. This is Bloomberg 11 30. Now. Global News update. Recounted. One state is over. But the legal battle is just beginning. Wisconsin finishes a recount of its presidential election results and confirms Joe Biden's victory in the battleground state. The president promised to challenge the outcome in court even before the recount finished. The U. S surgeon general is urging Americans to think about how their actions now will affect the coronavirus battle in a few weeks, Dr Jerome Adams told Fox News Sunday. Fight against the virus will get tougher over the next several weeks. The mayor of El Paso, Texas, says businesses which have been deemed essential, are actually leading tomb or Corona virus infections. The Margo told CBS's face the Nation. City officials did contact tracing for a week and found 55% of positives came from shopping at big box retailers. I'm Cameron Fairchild. This is Bluebird Daybreak weekend. Our global look ahead of the top stories for investors in the coming week. I'm John Tucker in New York. Big changes coming in Congress with some fresh faces there and some familiar faces also returning and for more, Let's send to Amy Morris and R Bloomberg 99 1 newsroom in Washington. Thank you, John. The presidential transition is underway. But there are plenty of changes unfolding on Capitol Hill as well for insight into what to expect. Let's bring in Bloomberg Congressional reporter Billy House, Billy It is always a pleasure. Thanks so much for joining us. Glad to be here. Let's start with Georgia. There are Senate runoff that are happening first part of the year. What do you look for coming up in the next week? Next week. We're going to hear more intense cries by the two Republicans, Senator Purdue and Senator Kelly La Flor that their Democratic challengers in the June in January 5th run off Basically socialists. That's been the drumbeat. Of course. What's at stake, and George is actually control in the Senate, and what's at stake with control of the Senate is unified control of the Congress for Democrats. So a lot of eyes watching that is it goes through December and early January, and then basically, the nation is watching one state for two Senate races. What hangs in the balance in terms of the actual legislative agenda of an incoming Biden administration, not just with the Georgia Senate race, but what may be happening in the next four years. I know that's an enormous question, but let's boil it down and start with what's going on in Georgia and then bring it out. Sure with Georgia. Republicans need to win just one of those races. But Democrats need win, too. If they do then new vice president Kamila Harris will be the vote the deciding vote in there along with the Democratic controlled house, then a Democrats could if they, if that happens, move ahead more swiftly on their plans for lower health care costs their paychecks. Of building green infrastructure cleaner government that that's those sort of things that would be held up by Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans. Perhaps if they maintain control of the Senate. When we're talking about a Biden administration, what are the big initiatives that come to your mind first and how that might work its way? Through Capitol Hill, because, as we know nothing happens in the White House that doesn't have to go through the meat grinder that is the Legislature. So what we talking climate change is top of the list obviously depend. Emmet what's first, there's never thinks he's promised that he wanted to do in the 1st 100 days, and some of these, he might be able to do with the pen executive action. But not all of them, Of course, reinstating deferred action on immigration for childhood arrivals. That was a big Obama everything that of course, the president Trump dismissed a moved to reinstate that allow for protection of you know, I guess over 600,000 people arrive in us. Each year illegally as Children. Comprehensive immigration reform could hit barriers with a senator, a Republican Senate, But that again is something that buying is one that due to modernize immigration system on climate. We learned that John Kerry will be the climate czar and And dying is made a focus of his campaign climate action..
What American voters want from the 2020 candidates
"We've been taking a deeper look at where the candidates stand and on key issues important to voters today we look at immigration. President trump ran on the promise of building a US Mexico border wall and during his presidency. He has worked work to make it harder for many migrants to apply for silom among other things. Some of the other top Democratic candidates are promising to reverse his actions joining joining us to talk about what Democrats are pledging to do a Sima Meta political writer for the La Times. She's an Iowa ahead of the caucuses. Welcome thanks for having me. I WANNA start with the news this week. The Supreme Court allowed a trump administration plan to go forward that could deny green cards to immigrants who need public assistance offence. What's been the reaction from twenty twenty candidates and we've heard a couple of candidates? Speak out about this already. I was at an event with the Mayor Buddha's yesterday Just outside of two moines and he was asked by voters about the specific case and he started quoting scripture. You know saying that you know the strangers was to be welcomed at this is sort of a core tenant of his faith And he really spoke about how this was sort of. Unconscionable we've also heard Elizabeth Warren. She tweeted about this. And we're probably I mean if you look at what the candidates have said about immigration and about about the trump administration's policy. This is an area where you're going to see a lot of agreement. I mean there's not a lot of daylight in other immigration policy their differences here and there but in terms of sort of cutting down access access. you know for people who are in the country illegally who are seeking a documentation. This is an area where you're going to see broad agreement among the Democratic candidates. Let's talk about some of those other there Big Questions on immigration. What our candidates saying about president trump's push to build a wall along the US border They're already some structures that are up. WHAT WOULD DEMOCRATS CRAT STU I most of them are completely against the wall? Some of them have the if you look at some of them have in some of the members who have been in the Senate for for example in the passive occasionally voted for uh-huh border funding Some earlier this year. I'm sorry late last year. When there was discussion about Daca young people were brought into this country illegally? When they're very young Some of them said that there they were amenable to some compromise. Like if you grant these young people citizenship might do a little bit of border funding But largely I mean they're pretty much in lockstep up in opposing the president's policies. They talk about several of them. Senator Klobuchar they talk about you. On the first hundred days using any type of executive action they could to undo Many of the president's policies the areas where you see some distinction is whether you know crossing the border illegally whether it should remain a crime or whether that'd be a civil we'll offense for example send closer she would keep it a crime other people like Bernie Sanders would decriminalize that decriminalizing illegal border crossings. That's something the thing that former vice president Joe Biden does not support here. He is at debate this summer. We're in a circumstance where if in fact you say you can just crossed the border. What do you say to all those people around the world who in fact want the same thing to come United States and make their case meant they don't that they have? I have to wait. Line the fact of the matter is you should be able to. If you cross the border illegally you should be able to be sent back. It's a crime this is an interesting topic in that It's been shown that Americans do want some sort of reform They perhaps wants some. I'm sort of a change at the border crossings. But exactly what they want. is still a question whether these candidates really address what the public wants. Well I think The former vice vice president is really an interesting spot because he's faced a lot of criticism from activists in throughout this campaign because during he was part of the Obama administration deportations rose was to record levels. During the Obama Administration. Someone's activists called President Obama the reporter and chief so he's as the live scrutiny on on the campaign trail. I mean I think you're exactly right. I mean if there's anything that people in both parties agree on it's that the immigration system is incredibly broken on the way it currently exists. They obviously differ very much in how they would fix exit. I WanNa talk to you about its immigration and customs enforcement which of course is responsible for deportations Bernie Sanders has called for the breaking up of Ice Elizabeth. Warren has called for the remaking of ice. How big of an issue is this? What our candidates saying well? This is an area where you actually can see some differences among the candidates in the field. I was at Bernie Sanders. There's rally on Saturday in the Ames and he was with Alexandria causing Cortez and she when she brought this up as a huge point in this was very very popular with the crowd that wants to. Do you have children in cages at the border once you have babies being from their mother's arms at the border that there is no reforming ice that needs to be abolished Other candidates take a more measured approach for example former South then mayor He sort of leans on his Mackenzie background here and that he wants to study it figure out what to do with ice. But he doesn't. He's not calling for abolishing it warrants and other ones so this is an area whether it's a little bit of daylight between the candidates another Issue that many Democrats are bringing up is increasing aid to Central American countries WHERE MIGRANTS OF COURSE COMING FROM HERE Senator Warren in September debate? Why do we have a crisis at the border in no small part because we have withdrawn help from the people in Central America who are suffering? We need to restore that help. We need to help establish a reestablish the rule of law so that people people don't feel like they have to flee for their lives. A number of candidates are also promising to protect so called dreamers of those are people who are brought to the country illegally illegally as children here Senator Bernie Sanders at a San Diego rally in December we will restore the legal status to the one point date million young people and their parents eligible for the Baka program. What if some of the other candidates Democratic candidates said set about DACA? Buddha judge coach are some of those others and this is an area where there's broad agreement that something has to be done for these these young people maybe all talk about this being one of their the top priorities tip. You know if they're elected to do this as soon as they get into office to take steps to protect these people Some of them also talk about expanding for example sanders who you just played. He would expand it to their your parents Kluber Sherwood raise the age for for which people were eligible which would also increase the number of people who could apply. Yeah you know when we talk about about This issue of immigration were often talking about coastal areas but former South Bend Indiana Mayor Pete. Buddha judge has spoken about what immigration can do for rural rule areas. Let's listen heart of my plan for revitalizing. The economies of Rural America includes community renewal visas that would allow cities towns and counties. That are hurting not only jobs for population to embrace immigration as we have in my city you know the only reason that south bend is growing right now after years. Years of shrinking is immigration That's an interesting take have have other candidates talked about this about spurring. The economies and other parts of the country intrigue through immigration former Vice President Biden. He's proposed allowing local governments to petition for new immigration visas to support economic growth. If there aren't enough local workers to jobs. I'm just sort of a new proposal. We're hearing this cycle. I don't think we've heard before and it's interesting. I mean being in Iowa I was obviously an incredibly homogenous state. It's a very. It's more than ninety percent white but there's certain pockets of you know when you get outside of the The Metro areas there these rural areas where young people are leaving and they need workers and you see some areas that have you know. have an increase in Latino workers. I think it started out long ago with the slaughterhouses etc.. But it's certainly expanded since then. I'm so I think it's an interesting area where people are talking about. You know where they're just simply aren't enough American workers I to fill the needs of a community. You're in Iowa as you as you just mentioned Has that been a topic of conversation about those immigrant populations in Iowa how they make up Iowa and maybe some of the candidates are trying to reach them. I mean immigration has come up on the campaign trail but it hasn't come up as much as some other issues is just because I think because there is such broad agreement among the Democratic candidates among the field About these proposals about what. The right thing is to deal with. People who are in the country illegally On the Republican side which have covered here in Pascal's it hasn't been much more of a flashpoint terms of what should happen to them. We talked about this a little bit but presidents on on both parties have failed to tackle comprehensive immigration reform for years. I mean this has been an issue if a Democrat is elected. What do you think the chances are that? They'll actually have success. I think it would depend on the makeup of the Senate. I mean there are some policy areas. Where if you look at the polling? There's pretty broad agreement among among Americans about what should happen in terms of you know for people who have been in this country for decades who have not committed crimes who have worked who paid into the system There's question about you should do they. They become citizens or to become legal residents but there is sort of agreement that you know we're not kicking out eleven million people. The question is once we we saw this Under George W Bush how the President Obama once it gets caught up in Congress and the Senate. It's it it just keeps stalling. Even when there does seem to be a chance of reaching agreement
Brookline And Boston discussed on Reveal
"The fourth graders he elementary school have arrived this morning the kids will become senators are from a school in Brookline a well off suburb of Boston and they have a big task to do comprehensive immigration reform can mean a lot of things like increasing border enforcement tweaking worker visas and imposing fines for employers who hire undocumented immigrants but the bill that the kids senators will be working on today focuses specifically on the most controversial aspect of comprehensive immigration reform providing a pathway to citizenship
Democrats unite at debate in endorsing health care to undocumented immigrants
"This is not about a handout, this is an insurance program, and we do ourselves. No favours by having eleven million undocumented people in our country, the unable to access healthcare. But of course, the real problems, we shouldn't have eleven million undocumented people with no pathway to citizenship. It makes no sense of American people. People agree on what to do. All right. So comprehensive immigration reform conflicted with free healthcare for people that are here illegally, because our country is healthier, if everybody in our country's healthier, except let me take two things on this. It's really important. Number one, you understand if someone has an emergency, and they're here illegally, the not an undocumented alien in the United States illegally here and they're having a hard chest pains and they go to hospital. Guess what they're going to get medical care because that's a federal law. And it's right. I get it. That's the right thing to do. But to say we're gonna know how health insurance paper by by the way us all of us paying for that. Because it's the right thing to do because this is what he said mayor Pete. This is this is so ridiculous. What I'm about to repeat what he said, because people that are here illegally are praying paying property taxes, directly or indirectly. Well, let me ask you what an indirect property tax is. And let me also ask if you are here illegally, how do you own real estate in the United States of America? And so, so how do you on the property and how do you pay for it? Indirectly violating a lot of other laws. So you're not just you didn't just into the country illegally. You probably illegal social security number which again, illegal identities. All these different things. I think this gives the heart of the whole immigration problem, though. He tries say, but the real problem is the eleven million here and the no pathway, but you'll never get all of us to agree on the right and the left, we will never be able to come to agreement. I'll go to in Washington on this government affairs director will never be able to greet them if they throw in front of us to say first before we talk about immigration reform border security, we've got to get free healthcare to all these illegal immigrants before we even talk about care insurance healthcare insurance understand. That's why coverage anyway was just keep us in the same stalemate nothing better for the those here illegally. Nothing better for the people in the shadows, nothing no changes whatsoever. Yeah, no addressing the people who are in the Manitoba crisis at the border either in Jordan. I know you address that progress that was made yesterday earlier in the broadcast. But look think about Jordan through this political lens, think about this political sales pitch to a voter like me, who, by the way, is voter that these nominees are going to need to win a general election, especially across the rust belt. But here's the sales pitch. It's really three parts. The first part, we have a family of five, my wife and I have three children, and they are going to say we want to take away your private insurance have terrific private insurance through the day. That's their I failed sales pitch. We wanna take that away from you Jordan on top of that. The second thing they wanna do. They want to force us into a government run health insurance program. I'm sure that will work out great if you look at the historical record of those programs. But then on top of Jordan, the cherry on top is that we're going to hit by the taxes to pay for the health insurance for legal. So it's called the America last policy. If you ask me, the Americans are treated last we get in the back of the line, and it's a triple whammy. Good luck. Jordan. Taking that across the rust belt and win election when the economy is
President Trump, Nancy Pelosi And Sarah Husseini discussed on Weekend Edition Sunday
"President Trump says he postponed, the planned roundup of undocumented immigrants at the request of Democrats, tweeting this weekend that he's giving Democrats and Republicans in congress two weeks to work out a solution.

Sen. Bernie Sanders on 'Face the Nation'
"We begin this morning with Vermont independent Senator and candidate for the democratic presidential nomination. Bernie sanders. He joins us from Burlington. Good morning to you Senator. Let's start off because I do want to get to some of your platform issues. But let's start with these allegations from Lucy, Flores, she is a Nevada politician who you had endorsed and who in the past has been supportive of you. She hasn't endorsed a candidate in this particular race. But she's accused vice president Joe Biden of inappropriate touching. You know, where do you believe her? What do you make of this? I have no reason not to believe Lucy. And I think what this speaks to is the need to fundamentally change the culture of this country and to create environments where women feel comfortable and feel safe. And that's something we got to do. I want to read a statement from the vice president who said it's a lengthy one. But. In just part of it. He says in my many years on the campaign trail and in public life. I've offered countless handshakes hugs expressions of affection supporting comfort and not once never did. I believe I acted inappropriately. If it is suggested I did. So I will listen respectfully, but it was never my intention. That's a general denial. Mrfloor is was on CNN this morning Senator and she said. That really this needs to be taken more seriously as a party suggesting that Democrats aren't taking it seriously enough. And she said she's coming forth. Well, she says she's coming forth now because she thinks it's disqualifying for Joe Biden, do you think it's disqualifying? Well, I think that's a decision for the vice president to make. I'm not sure that one incident. Alone disqualifies anybody, but her point does absolutely right. This is not just the Democrats or Republicans the entire country has got to take seriously, it is not acceptable that when a woman goes to work or is in any kind of environment that she feels anything less than comfortable and safe. And this is an issue the entire country has got to work on. And I know your own campaign has had some reckoning with us as well in the past and Margaret we have established the strongest protocols to prevent this from happening of any campaign in history. I want to get to the issue of health care. The president this week said he wants the courts to strike down ObamaCare Affordable Care Act, but to be fair Senator you wanna replace ObamaCare to replace it with Medicare for all this government run government finance program. So if the court strike down, the ACA doesn't ultimately help, you know. Look. Yes, pro puzzle idea on healthcare. His idea is to throw thirty two million Americans off of the health insurance. They have doing away with insurance for kids with twenty six years of age or younger who are on their parents plans doing away with the protections that the ACA has for pre existing conditions. That means if you up cancer heart disease, you have diabetes. If Trump gets his way the cost of health insurance, the you will be so high then many people literally will not be able to afford it. Thousands of people will literally die. That's probes health insurance plan, my plans just a little bit different. I think we should join the rest of the industrialized world guarantee healthcare to all people as a right and the absurdity of the United States spending twice as much per capita on health care as any other nation while life expectancy. It's actually going down and our healthcare outcomes are worse than many other countries. And by the way, we pay by far the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs. Margaret, let me make a campaign promise to you. And you can repeat this played this tape over if I'm elected president. And that is if I'm elected president, I'm gonna cut prescription drug costs in this country by fifty percent. So that we are not paying any more than other major countries are pay baby. Because we will look at the average costs of prescription drugs in Canada, UK, Germany, Japan, and France, well, we will look at the average costs which are fifty percent lower than they are in the United States, and we will do that. And the problem of suitable industry, if the pharmaceutical industry which made fifty five major companies made fifty billion dollars in profits last year, they pay their CEO's outrageous compensation packages, if they don't like that they will take a look at their Pat when are you going to use your Medicare for all plan in this congress? You've already got five people supporting you do that with the next couple weeks next couple of we are going to do. Yes. So by the way, when we when we do that what we understand is that it is just not acceptable that thirty million Americans have no health insurance, and even more are underinsured. With high deductibles co payments. So you where we are. Right now. I'm sorry. Good. So I want to also ask you though, because we have what the president is calling a crisis at the border. He's threatening to shut down portions of it this week. He has given the order to cut off aid to Central American countries. Do you think this helps do you think this hurts and can congress stop this cut-off in aid? Well, we're going to do everything we can to stop it. It's totally absurd. Looked you have how can you stop? Herbal. The state Ross's are already trying to knock the class. Well, you can stop it by overriding what he is doing and making sure that we fund these programmes, look, here's the story. You have a terrible humanitarian crisis. You have women and children traveling a thousand miles or more often by foot in order to escape the violence and poverty in their countries. So what we need to do. Of course is a comprehensive immigration reform. But be we need to make sure that our borders are secure. But also, we need a humane policy at the border in which we are not. Gig. Tiny children. About or would you keep these children in detention longer or deport them faster? What would you main policy? These are you know, when you when you lock up children when you separate children from their mothers. This was a traumatic situation which these kitchen filtered, many of them will never recover from you need, a humane policy at the bottom. You today have hit this benchmark end of first quarter of funding financing for the campaign. I believe you said you wanted one million donors by this time. Did you mean one million contributions contributions? I'm not quite sure. But I am enormously impressed by the many many hundreds of thousands of Americans who are making contributions many of them are very small contributions. I'm also impressed by the fact that we have over one million people from every state in this country who volunteered to work on. What will be an unprecedented grassroots campaign? Look market the way we win the democratic nomination the way we be Trump. When my mind is was dangerous. President in modern American history is through a massive grass roots effort, which the man's that we have an economy and a government which works for all of us endowed chose the one percent that we end this massive level of income and wealth inequality with three of the wealthiest people are more wealth than the bottom half of Americans while at the same time over half, the people in this country, a working paycheck to paycheck. Will you your tax return standard jello granted? So this week or some we will. I mean, we have it all done. And it's just the question of dotting. The is crossing the TS. Yes, we will. Absolutely. By the way, let me challenge. President Trump to do the same. Trust me. We do not have investments in Russia or Saudi Arabia or any place else. Yes. We will be

A behind the scenes look at American power based on a true story in theaters everywhere. Christmas day. From NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Elsa Chang. And Mary Louise Kelley majority leader Mitch McConnell says he is distressed Nebraska Republican Vince asked calls it a sad day for America. And Chris Murphy, Connecticut Democrat describes it as a national security crisis. All senators all talking about the resignation of secretary of defense, Jim Mattis. I am joined now by another Senator Tim Kaine democrat of Virginia Cain sits on the Armed Services Committee, which will have to confirm whoever is nominated to succeed. Mattis Senator Kaine welcome. Could it be on the show? Thanks so much. I gather you're not happy about secretary Mattis impending departure either. No, look, I've been in public life for twenty five years. I'm an armed services member from a state. That's connected to the military. I have a son in the Marine Corps secretary Mattis has one of the best public servants. I've worked with in my career and his resignation, and especially the asserted reasons for the resignation should 'cause every American to be really really worried. Although was this inevitable Madison self in the resignation letter that I soon you're referring to there. He said the president deserves a Defense Secretary who shares his vision of the world, I think that's very diplomatically put. But if you look at the letter, basically, what secretary Mattis says is this that the two pillars of American security that are constant. And this is a guy who spent more than four decades providing security is a marine is one building strong alliances among democracies and second standing up. To thorough -tarian adversaries, and he basically said Mr President on these two values you and I disagree, and we've certainly seen in a president who undercuts allies at many opportunities using national security waivers to punish Canada and Europe, for example, and then cosies up to a thorough Teheran's such as Russia and and Kim Jong Hoon in North Korea. And that reason asserted by secretary Mattis is very very troubling. Have you talked to him if you talk to dramatically? I have not talked to him since the announcement. The announcement set off a firestorm now leave news, but ambassadors of European and other allies reaching out to Senator saying sort of what's going on announcements this week about Syrian Afghanistan, obviously, causing huge concerns among allies who were side by side with us. In those theaters. I mentioned it's your committee armed services that will have to vote on whoever is named to succeed him. Who would you like to see? You know, it's too early to say that there's a person that I'd like to see, but I want somebody who will be willing to stand up and speak truth to power one of the challenges. And this administration is those who do general McMaster, the national security advisor and secretary Mattis, they get pushed aside, but we need people who are experienced who will look the president in the eye and and speak truth. And if the president can handle it he can't handle it. But I don't want an enabler. There's been too many neighbors around this president and the first two years like bobbleheads saying yes to everything, and that's not what this country needs right now changing gears. We're speaking to you from Capitol Hill. Are you all making any progress on a voiding a government shutdown at stroke of midnight? Well, we had a bipartisan deal just two days ago passed the Senate unanimously with the blessing of the White House, but the president yesterday decided to do a one eighty and say he now if you can't get five billion hill shutdown government and punish eight hundred thousand plus federal employees. Who would not get as long as there's a shutdown? Yeah. I heard you on Sarah calling him the Grinch about to steal Christmas, which I will give you credit. It's a good line. But subsidies. Senator or else? Well, thousands of people who are going to have to work without being paid over the holidays. You're you're absolutely right. And that was what we did when we gave them a bipartisan deal less than forty eight hours ago that he agreed to I know. But here we are society afternoon. So what happens? Well, what's going on? Right now is the vice president, Jared, Kushner, and Mick Mulvaney. The new chief of staff were up talking to Senator Schumer, and we're seeing reports out of that meeting that there may be an announcement soon about a path forward possibly a deal. I understand those administration officials went over to talk to speaker Ryan. So this is very much kind of a work in progress right now, no reason to shut the government down. Absolutely. None just a few seconds left. But, but we're also hearing from Shimer's office, and they're saying that this deal would involve funding for border security, but not the wall would you vote for that? I voted for it many many times comprehensive immigration reform and twenty thirteen head border security money. We offered the president deal in February with border security money. He turned it down border security is something that we all support. All right. Thank you so much Senator. Alright thanks much Virginia.
