A federal appeals court has reversed a lower court order that would have allowed Florida residents with felony convictions to vote in the November presidential election. As Danny Rivera of member station LRN reports the ruling impacts an estimated three quarters of a million people in Florida. That question was whether people who still owe money for fines, fees and restitution related to their cases should be able to vote even if they can't afford to pay. A state law passed last year made those financial obligations, a condition of voting. Critics of the law said that this amounted to a poll tax and a federal judge agreed with them. But in the opinion reversing that decision, the appeals court said that money is part of a criminal sentence. So Florida has a right to demand payment before granting voting rights. The appeals court ruling was written by Chief Judge William Pryor, who's on Trump's list of potential Supreme Court nominees.

"It has been US policy to give a haven to people fleeing communist, Cuba. But over time Cubans have been losing that favored status I under Obama. And now under Trump who has taken a harder line on Cuba and on immigration. Danny Rivera of member station. W L R N reports. Hey, Seuss, Allah has lived as a legal permanent resident in the US since its parents fled Cuba in the nineteen eighties. He's forty two now lives in Miami in works in the construction business. I guess growing up as such a community that was all immigrants on feel the need to become a citizen for what is done. Resident was the difference? I do you see a difference? He didn't see the difference until he went on his honeymoon late last year when he returned with his new bride immigration officials at the airport pulled him aside. They detained him and flagged him for deportation because of a twenty twelve conviction on cocaine possession for which he did community service. I've felt betrayed by my own country. That was the only time I've ever had that feeling because I I wasn't born here. But I've been here since I'm a kid. I was eight years old. So to me, I'm an American for decades most Cubans couldn't be deported because Cuba wouldn't take them back then u s Cuba relations took an historic turn under- President Obama he resumed diplomatic relations with the island nation and ended. What was known as the wet foot dry foot policy that gave a silent to most Cubans who set foot on US soil, even if they came here legally cut, the end Silva is an attorney who handles Cuban 'immigration cases before Cuba's were even if they had a final order of deportation. There were not. Physically taking out of the country. Now that has changed. So you do hear things they've never heard before which it's actual removal of Cubans back to Cuba last year. Four hundred sixty three people were deported to Cuba. A sevenfold increase over the last two years. Many like Allah weren't a priority for deportation under previous administrations now they've been caught up in Trump's immigration crackdown. I believe there more now Q unseen in the facility. Nanny. Oh, they're tying that. I remember Santiago out beside also handles immigration cases. He's Cuban American community is shocked by the deportations, and by other changes that have slowed immigration from Cuba. Cubans are no longer priority to putting mutation Q three acid any older megrim from any other part of the ward. They only thing that remains in play for queuing. The Cuban adjustment acting the Cuban adjustment act allows Cubans to apply for a green card after being in the US legally for a year and a day. No other nationality gets that benefit. But here's the thing under Trump. There's fewer ways to reach that milestone. His administration has limited towards visas to three months down from five years and in a strange twist. It's almost impossible to get any kind of visa in Cuba. That's because the American embassy in Havana largely shut down after what US officials have called a Thon attack on diplomats there. At for. Hey, sues Osceola, he was detained for more than a month. Everybody was going crazy. Happen get deported. And God knows anything could have happened. I was going to a country number Ivy LA argued immigration court that he should be allowed to stay in the US. His wife is an American citizen, and he said he's needed here to take care of his disabled, mom, the judge. Agreed. I just I felt such a relief. Just started crying a kid crying. And crying grade.

Carlos Martinez is Miami Dade County public defender. He spoke at that meeting and argued local jails shouldn't hold immigrants for the federal government, which would make a few years earlier. He had made the same arguments including that costs Miami Dade taxpayers millions of dollars. But this time the arguments didn't work it was surreal to be showing up back before the same commission had the same commissioners that we had had before. And all of a sudden the arguments that were made before. As to why pass the ordinance the resolution to begin with all of a sudden that was insufficient when the commission passed the new resolution, they specified the federal government doesn't have to reimburse the county this time the commission was okay spending the county's own money to risk not losing other federal funding. What it said to me was that there stated support for the immigrant community was very shallow again Jonathan freed of the immigrant rights group. We count that they could throw folks under the bus so easily when President Trump made that threat we count is now suing Miami Dade for changing its policy saying holding immigrants for the federal government is unconstitutional. A second lawsuit against Miami Dade using the same argument is also moving forward Commissioner Sally Hayman believes she did the right thing and reversing her own policy to protect funding for Miami Dade County. She asks what if we'd missed out on money that county needed for hurricane Irma recovery. For example. But at the same time, she's glad there's legal challenges to President Trump's order for the courts. Meanwhile, six states and cities, like New York, Chicago, and San Francisco are also suing the federal government on the grounds. That forcing them to hold immigrants is unconstitutional. The lawsuits say these were requests not legal obligations to cooperate with ice to date. The Trump administration has not withheld federal funding from anything Curie city for here.

"Now and people who rely on these services, they're very aware that this is getting worse and worse every day at the same time. They are aware that repeated Paul's including several ones that came out this morning show that the public is blaming President Trump show that the idea of a border wall is still not popular with the public and they feel like their stance of reopen. The government I is the right stance to beyond right now. So there's no pressure to to change and suddenly vote for a wall. NPR congressional correspondent, Scott detro-, Scott. Thank you. Sure. Thank talk soon. We'll at the core of this government shutdown is immigration. But many cities and counties have taken matters of immigration into their own hands. Several hundred of them deciding to limit local police from enforcing federal immigration policies. Miami Dade County in Florida used to be one of those communities, but then reversed course, and now the county is facing two federal lawsuits related to its cooperation with the federal government's immigration enforcement agency. Danny Rivera from member station. W L R N in Miami reports five years ago, the Miami Dade County commission voted unanimously to no longer cooperate with the Obama administration's request to hold undocumented immigrants in local jails, and that's after they had already served time for a local crime or paid bond to get released Commissioner Sally Heyman lead that vote. And this is her celebratory press conference, Miami Dade County up until recently held in custody inmates. Having an immigration detainers placed on them by ice, ice, immigration and customs enforcement. And sometimes that would be the sole reason for keeping men and women locked up at that time the county was in the budget crisis and Commissioner Heyman. Zeroed in on this issue when the county held undocumented immigrants for the feds and local jails it was not getting reimbursed and this was costing local taxpayers millions of dollars not only should about saving money. It's about saving people and the cost and the consequence to our community of immigrants, and who they impact with substantial advocates, including Jonathan freed of the immigrant rights group. We count we're thrilled that the county would stop cooperating with ice. What it means.

"This is weekend edition from NPR news. I'm Leyla Felton. It's now been almost two months since the November general election, but in North Carolina's ninth congressional district. There is still no winner as the state board of elections investigates allegations of election fraud by a Republican operative and a ruling this past week by a three judge panel has created even more chaos in the disputed race. Joining me to talk about this never ending election is Steve Harrison of member station WFAN Charlotte, Steve reminded us, again, what the state board is investigating. So in late November Republican marquess was ahead of democrat, Dan, McCreevy by nine hundred five votes, and everyone assumed the race was over all the state elections sport had to do was certified the race, which should have been formality. But the board didn't do that. And for the last month has been investigating whether a political operative working for Harris, named McRae Dallas illegally collected absentee ballots and blatant. County, and there's a lot of evidence through media interviews and a state board itself that Dallas did that to a great extent. The big day was going to be January eleventh. That's when the state elections board was going to hold a public hearing the case Atlanta all of its evidence. And after that, it would either declare Harris the winner or call for new election. But I understand everything changed this week. What what happened and how does it impact the investigation? So in North Carolina. There has been an unrelated legal fight over the makeup of the state elections board and a three judge panel had previously said that this Colonel elections board which was created by Republicans is unconstitutional that board was planning to stay intact and finish this investigation through January, but the same judges said you can't do that day China the board for taking so long to hold that public hearing and said the night district deserves to have a winner. So they dissolved the entire board as of noon Friday. So right now, you have a situation where the elections board staff is still investigating. But. There's no one really in charge. You can make a decision. So we don't even know what's going to happen at the January eleventh hearing or if they'll even be one. And after that ruling both sides really turned up their rhetoric. What were they saying? So they did. And after this ruling both sides have kind of really lost their patients, and they've started hurling insults at each other Harris, the Republican he demanded that the elections board immediately certify him as the winner is the winner on Friday morning and in the boards last hours before being dissolved. He also questioned in a radio interview, whether the elections board had a his word sinister motive on blowing the whistle on the absentee mail fraud. After he won instead of earlier in the year. And that's been a common theme among Republicans the election board is BI partisan. But the GOP feels the Democrats in the board didn't really care about possible fraud and blamed county until it impacted their candidate. And on the other side. The Democrats have been on the offensive for a long time. They've been hammering Harris for hiring. Mcrae. Dallas. And congress has not weighed in is that right before they have kind of said, they were gonna take a wait and see attitude on whether they would cede Harris. But yesterday, the incoming majority leader Steny Hoyer said no that we are not going to see them. Because of course, the Democrats take over the house, and they said big while this investigation is pending. He won't be seated. So even if heiresses somehow certified he apparently has nowhere to go. At least for now. So with no elections board. What happens next the democratic governor ROY Cooper has said he wants to create a temporary five member board until a new certified board comes online January thirty first that would presumably let the January eleventh hearing scheduled, but Republicans don't think that's legal and they've said they won't participate in any temporary board. So this whole thing could stretch well into two thousand eighteen that's reporter Steve Harrison in Charlotte. Thanks for speaking with us. Thank you. To another political standstill this one in Florida. The state was one of the last remaining to automate restrict voting rights of convicted felons, but in November Floridians overwhelmingly passed a constitutional amendment granting voting rights back to certain felons. Now, the incoming governor some state lawmakers and election officials say they need to weigh in before any changes go into effect. Wwl RN's. Danny Rivera has more on paper the new amendment could inject over a million new voters into one of the nation's biggest battleground states overnight as the amendment is written. Most people convicted of a felony should be able to register to vote on January eighth. The only people excluded are those convicted of sex crimes are murder. But now there's increasing questioned about how is this amendment actually going to get implemented. It says that voting rights shall be restored. I don't know what is unclear about that what could be unclear about that Howard, Simon just retired. This november. But was the executive director of the American Civil Liberties union of Florida for decades he helped draft the ballot amendment and calls itself executing. Meaning no one has to touch it. We worked a year and a half on this language intentionally to say that there is no role for politicians people in the legislature people in the governor's office people in the secretary of state's office, but some Florida Republicans have a different take on that take the governor elect Rhonda Santa's who ran against the amendment. He told the podcast. He doesn't think it's self executing. There's gonna be a law that we're going to have pass in order to comply with that amendment for non Floridians. There's a political backdrop here several times in the last decade a citizen ballot initiative has overwhelmingly passed, but then the Republican dominated state government steps in and tries to override the will of the voters only to have the courts reject their proposal. And some activists are scared that could happen this time around and meanwhile fell in. Voters wouldn't be able to vote in local elections which are happening as early as February. I think part of it is sort of a panic that we have a hard date, and this thing Republican state Senator Dennis baxley is the chairman of the ethics and elections committee any legislation about how this got implemented will pass by his desk. He says lawmakers are absolutely not going to kick the ball around the president. Or Senate has already clearly stated we're not going to slow walk everything we're going to implement with people voted for. But we want to do it in a way that it works. Baxley says potential issues are in the details like how exactly the counties will parse out sex offenders and convicted murderers county election officials haven't gotten guidance from the administration of outgoing governor Rick Scott about how to interpret who can vote baxley says that's where lawmakers might need to step in to get the whole state on the same page. So that you don't have sixty seven supervisors election interpreting different ways as to how they balance eight this. Person's eligibility. Tranessa white is from Pensacola on the Florida, panhandle. She has a felony conviction. But she says on January eighth she's going to walk to the elections office and registered to vote. It is very vital that we go out the day off in numbers to show the world that you know, we're here to make it right again. I voice was silent. When we were convicted. And so this allows us to speak again in just over a week will learn if that's as simple as it sounds for NPR news. I'm Danny Rivera in Miami. Tomorrow on morning edition. We take a look back on the stock market's up and down year and whether the roller coaster continues in two thousand nineteen listen to that story tomorrow on morning edition by asking your smart speaker to play NPR or your station by name..

"Every twenty years around three dozen people gathered together to come up with amendments to the state constitution, Florida is the only state that has this kind of commission which bundles together a number of issues into one. Yes, or no question. Danny Rivera of wwl RN explains. If you live in Florida on election day, you'll get the option to ban offshore drilling and also banned vaping in the workplace or you can vote to change the state college system and also give more death benefits to the families of first responders and members of the military. These two items on the November ballot are the product of the Florida constitution revision commission, and the voter has to make a terrible choice. Ellen freidan was on the revision commission twenty years ago in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight do I vote for the thing. I don't like in order to get the thing. I do like, and that's just not fair and not acceptable. I think. What the constitution revision commission? Did is it packed things that they thought would be popular along with things that they really wanted. But thought wouldn't be popular. That's how Broward county's top administrator Bertha. Henry sees it to particularly on a question that would do three things at once mandated State Department of veteran affairs mandate estate anti-terrorism office and something Henry's not happy with force every county that have five elected government officials, including sheriff and supervisor of elections the amendment. That's on the agenda is sandwiched in between motherhood now by the commission has been putting seemingly unrelated questions together on the ballot since it was first formed in nineteen seventy eight. But the way freidan and some legal experts at this time is different twenty years ago. The decision about who would be on the commission came from a mix of Democrats and Republicans that men in almost even split between the two parties says Ellen freidan anything that got passed through that constitution revision commission had to be seriously debated compromises had to be made. And it had to be something that was agreeable on a bipartisan level, but this year every appointment was made by Republicans or Republican appointed officials, and that can make things look political, even if they're not Anna Maria Gamez was on this year's commission on a committee that helped write the language voters will see she says politics were not play just plain logic. So when we first started meeting, we all came to the table with ideas of how things might be grouped and everything really having a somewhat of an access or a natural connection. Giminez offers the example of. Amendment nine which would ban offshore drilling invading at work. But if you look at it from a let's make our environment, more friendly and protect our state and protect our citizens. I think that you can kind of see why they would have fit together. I can't say that personally. I agreed with all of the groupings and my voting record would speak to that. But for the most part I did. And I thought that we put things together in a way that just made sense Guinness says there's another reason for grouping amendments in some places ballots are nearly twenty pages long this year. So the commission wanted to stop voter fatigue. Just make this shorter and easier for people. There's just one rule the commission has to follow. According to the Florida constitution the title in the summary of the amendment needs to be clearly understood by voters Timothy McLennan is a professor of constitutional law at the university of Florida says it needs to clearly state the chief purpose it needs to be comprehensible. And so the more you enfold some different disparate subjects. It can really be a challenge there. The Florida Supreme Court already ruled that one bundled amendment was not clear enough for voters. There was about charter schools and it didn't use the phrase charter schools so that was removed from the ballot. Three other amendments were in jeopardy of being tossed off the ballot until this month when the supreme court unanimously ruled that they would say Justice Barbara party into wrote the questions were improperly bundled, and they didn't give voters a clear choice of what they're voting on. But the legal filing that was used to make that argument was the improper vehicle. Justice party into had two words for people looking at these questions on the ballot voters beware for here. And now, I'm Danny Rivera in Miami. Whether you're a voter in Florida or another state, you may also have ballot measures to weigh in on election day this year, there are a hundred and fifty five statewide ballot measures in thirty seven states. Sixty four of them are citizen led initiatives there an example of direct democracy. Letting voters rather than legislatures decide policies and laws. Joining us now is Josh Altaic who's the project director for the ballot measures project at ballot pedia. Josh, welcome. It's good to be here. Thank you. And how does the number of statewide ballot initiatives this year compared to other years overall, the total number of measures has been decreasing over the last decade or so there's been a trend towards fewer and fewer but in two thousand sixteen in two thousand eighteen there has been a resurgence specifically in citizen initiated measures measures. They get on the ballot through a signature petition signed by registered voters. And in those citizen initiated ballot measures, if they get past do they become law, or is it something that then just gets referred to the legislature to make a decision about those have gone to the ballot for final approval from the voters. And there are a couple of exceptions, for example in Nevada. There's a measure that has to get approved again in twenty twenty if it passes in two thousand eighteen but these measures are going to the voters and the voters have the last say on them. So what kind of issues are we talking about here? I see that a lot of them have to do with elections and voting. Yeah. That's one of the biggest trends, we're seeing in twenty eighteen things like redistricting systems, adding commissions are changing the requirements redistricting marijuana's another topic that's been on the ballot. A lot in recent years has been a trend, and it's sort of continuing this year other election policies related measures things like voting requirements voter ID campaign, finance and ethics is another big issue in North Dakota, South Dakota, Missouri. How difficult is it to get some of these initiatives? Onto the ballot. The process varies by state. The number of senators required is usually based on a percentage of voter turnout, either for the president for the governor for secretary of state and the total number varies from a little over thirteen thousand small state like North Dakota to over half a million in California this year, the cost on average was a million dollars a little over a million dollars in two thousand eighteen for these initiatives. So does that mean that it is mostly big organizations who get behind these things and get them on the ballot or could it just be Jane q voter? There are a few sort of really true, grassroots volunteer efforts. But for the most part if these things are causing over a million dollars either have to have a rich individual an industry or a special group a national interest group that's behind you to provide the funding to get these on the ballot. I can imagine that in some cases state legislators would be happy that something is put to the voters. So they don't have to make the call themselves. And in other cases, they might not be happy because it ties their hands. Yeah. In general implicit in the initiative process is a conflict between citizens or a registered voters and the legislature the backers of these initiatives generally use the initiative process as a sort of a method of last resort. If they're not getting what they want done in the legislature, and they see an opportunity that voters might approve a policy that the legislature has either not acted on or has opposed. But there's always some exceptions that prove the rule, and there are cases where politically connected people go to the initiative process, and that could be for for a variety of reasons. But for the most part the citizen initiative process is used when the policies aren't being approved in the legislature now, sometimes the voters decide on something and then the state either drags its feet or decides doesn't want to go through with it. In Maine last year, sixty percent of voters approved a ballot initiative to expand Medicaid to cover tens of thousands more people, but the governor there Paul the page has blocked implementation, and there's an ongoing legal battle over it. How often does that kind of thing happen as you see the initiative process habits resurgence? So as you see more initiatives, you see the number of instances where that conflict I was talking about that's implicit boil to the surface. The response to the twenty sixty initiatives was in many cases to either repeal or change the initiatives if possible and some states allow that some don't or to pass restrictions on the process, and then there's sort of a third response. We've seen is an effort to compromise in two thousand eighteen with initiative proponents instead of letting it go to the ballot and letting it be this sort of hard battle trying to find some sort of deal they can make where initial opponents withdraw and the policy still gets at least some sort of advancement, if it's not the full effort that the addition opponents wanted what is the thought about how useful ballot questions are direct democracy is is really important in the US every state, but Delaware, so forty nine states require voters to ratify constitutional amendments. So even if the legislature. Put it on the ballot. The voter still have to vote on it. The question really comes down to in the argument is about citizen initiated measures where an industry or corporation or an out of state interest or grassroots. Volunteer efforts can put a measure on the ballot by collecting a certain number of inches. Only. Twenty six states have any process that similar to that one of the most common arguments in opposition this year is out of state interests and industries or or special interests, usurping the process and using it to put forward some sort of policy that benefits them and doesn't benefit the voters and behind that is this idea that you can confuse or dupe the voters into approving something that they don't want to approve in support people always just argue that when you put something directly before the voters you have to just trust the voters will will actually be able to vote according to their values and that requires an informed electorate and a lot of discussion and spreading around the information. So that voters can have information they need on election day to vote their values, but you. Under how many voters actually do have the information. They need on election day to vote about some of these things, which they probably don't spend that much time thinking about right? Yeah. And that's why ballot pedia exists. We we've seen that need. And that's a real concern that I mean is being expressed all over the place. In fact, this year they are ballot measures that address ballot measures. There's some some metabolic measures for example in in South Dakota. There are measures to increase the voter requirement threshold to require fifty five percent instead of just fifty. Should there be some protections involved? And should there be some some more criteria that prevent any sort of manipulating.

"From NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Mary Louise Kelley, and I'm Ari Shapiro. The man accused of sending more than a dozen package bombs too high profile Democrats critics of President Trump and CNN made his first court appearance today. Fifty six year olds could spend decades behind bars. If he's convicted Danny Rivera from member station W L N was in the courtroom and joins us from Miami. Hi, danny. Hey, I know this court appearance was largely procedural tell us what happened in court this afternoon. Yeah. It was really like you said, mostly procedural. There wasn't a whole lot of guilt or innocence talk, basically say was formerly charged on five counts of federal crimes ranging from threatening. Former presidents to illegal mailings of explosives. Remember he was arrested near Miami. Last Friday, he'd been driving a white van plastered with anti-democrat pro Trump's an anti media stickers, and he'd apparently been living out of that van for we don't know exactly how long but for some time in court today. Prosecutors basically said they don't want him to have the option of bail because they consider him a flight risk and a danger to other people in the community. What was his demeanor? So before the hearing actually got started he was talking with his attorneys, and he was wearing a he was shackled at the risks and the ankles, and he was wearing a ten jumpsuit. He didn't say much, but when he talked he did sound kind of defeated you could hear his his you could barely actually hear his voice at all. It was quite raspy before the proceedings, you could I caught a glimpse of him tearing up looked like his his attorneys kind of gathered around to shield him from from the view once that started happening. The judge asked him a series of questions. Do you understand the charges brought against you? He just kind of nodded. I mean, he looked you could see he was upset at some point his face kinda turned red who was cheering up his upper lip was quivering. He didn't look like he was doing too. Well, and this was taking place in southern Florida, which is not whereas trials gonna take place. Explain that. Yes. So the charges were actually filed in the southern district of New York he was arrested in my close to Miami. So that's where the the original hearing is taking place, but he will at some point be taken up to to New York. The US attorney there is the one prosecuting the case of many of the package bombs were mailed there in that office has a long history of prosecuting these kinds of crimes the trial. It's. Self. I wouldn't bet on it happening anytime soon these cases tend to take years or even longer to go to trial if there's no plea deal. In the meantime, the next hearing the judge sat it's gonna be on Friday here in Miami. So he'll be here at least until then. And at that point. We'll learn whether he'll be released on bail. Or if he's going to be transferred up to New York for for more hearings. Right. That is Danny Rivera reporter with member station. W L R N in south Florida. Thanks very much Danny thanks for having me. We're going to take the next few minutes to remember two of the eleven people killed at the tree of life synagogue on Saturday, two brothers inseparable and devoted to their synagogue. See and David Rosenthal seesaw was fifty nine five years older than David the brothers live together in a community home in Pittsburgh run by achiever. That's an organization that helps people with disabilities. Chris show is vice president of residential supports with achiever. And she joins me now.

They would stop and talk to everyone and anyone and I read that she still had an official role. He was a greeter at the synagogue say-so was not only agreed or at the synagogue, but I would refer to him as the embassador to squirrel hill. He was always. Hello. How are you David was a very reserved person? But as soon as you said Hello today that he just opened up. They were so close to their family, David with call his mother every single day when he got home from work. They got up with a positive attitude. How's your family? How were you doing? What's your day? Look right for today. Wrestling's for you today. And they threw parties for everything. In fact, one time they had their bathrooms remodeled in their home. And they wanted to throw a party for remodeling the bathroom. Trying to imagine that one on. There was a next door neighbor where they had their house remodeled, and they were going to put it on the market, and they went to the open house because they wanted to be a part of that. Yeah. What kind of work? Did they do? You described them coming home from work rise working for a great rail and craning and Ceasar was about to start a job two days awake and family.

And it sounds like these are two brothers who liked to party who would have appreciated that gesture and been right there in the mix. I think that is exactly correct. I think that our Saturdays. You could have counted them to be where they were. That's where they wanted to have been the best way that we can remember them and honor them this to know that they live their life. Well, anybody you talk to in squirrel hill near them. They were well respected in their church and their family is absolutely fantastic. And. It's one of the best situations that could ever be.

Fifty six year olds could spend decades behind bars. If he's convicted Danny Rivera from member station W was in the courtroom and joins us from Miami. Hi, danny. Hey, I know this court appearance was largely procedural tell us what happened in court this afternoon. Yeah. It was really like you said, mostly procedural. There wasn't a whole lot of guilt or innocence talk, basically was formerly charged on five counts of federal crimes ranging from threatening former presidents to legal mailings of explosives. Remember he was arrested near Miami. Last Friday, he'd been driving a white van plastered with anti-democrat pro Trump's an anti media stickers, and he'd apparently been living out of that van for we don't know exactly how long but for some time in court today. Prosecutors basically said they don't want him to have the option of bail because they consider him flight risk and a danger to other people in the community. What was his demeanor? So before the the hearing actually got started he was talking with his attorneys, and he was wearing a he was he was shackled at the risks. And the ankle's he was wearing a ten jumpsuit. He didn't say much, but when he talked he did sound kind of defeated you could hear his his you could barely actually hear his voice at all. It was it was quite raspy before the the proceedings you could I caught a glimpse of him tearing up. It looked like his attorneys kind of gathered around to shield him from from the view once that started happening. The judge asked him a series of questions. Do you understand the charges brought against you just kind of nodded he'd looked somewhat defeated? I would say. And the. Sorry about that. You could see you could see he was upset at some point. His face kinda turned red who's tearing up his upper lip was quivering. He didn't look like he was doing too. Well, and this was taking place in southern Florida, which is not whereas trial's gonna take place. Explain that. Yes. So the charges were actually filed in the southern district of New York he was arrested in my close to Miami. So that's where the the original hearing is taking place, but he will at some point be taken up to to New York. The US attorney there is the one prosecuting the case of many of the package bombs were mailed there in that office has a long history of prosecuting these kinds of crimes. The trial itself. I wouldn't bet on it happening anytime soon these cases tend to take years or even longer to go to trial if there's no plea deal. In the meantime, the next hearing the judge sat it's going to be on Friday here in Miami. So he'll be your here at least until then. And at that point. We'll learn whether he'll be re released on bail or if he's going to be transferred up to New York for for more hearings. All right. That is Danny Rivera reported with member station W L R N in south Florida. Thanks very much Danny thanks for having me. We're going to take the next few minutes to remember two of the eleven people killed at the tree of life synagogue on Saturday, two brothers inseparable and devoted to their synagogue, see soul and David Rosenthal. Seesaw was fifty nine five years older than David the brothers live together in a community home in Pittsburgh run by achiever. That's an organization that helps people with disabilities. Chris show f- is vice president of residential supports with achiever, and she joins me now via Skype to remember the Rosenthal brothers Kristof. Welcome and and my condolences on your loss. I'm so sorry. Thank you. So very much. Appreciate that describe see Saul and David for me. What were they like? David and Ceasar were larger than life. They were tier of the most kind generous people they were so entwined into the fabric of their community. They rubbed to rock all through his burrow hill. They would stop and talk to everyone and anyone and I read that she still had an official role. He was a greeter at the synagogue, west say-so was not only agreed or at the synagogue, but I would refer to him as the and Basseterre to squirrel hill. He was always. Hello. How are you David was a very reserved person? But as soon as you said Hello to David. He just opened up. They were so close to their family. David would call his mother every single day when he got home from work. They got up with a positive attitude. How's your family how? What were you doing? What's your day? Look like for today. Wrestling's for you today, and they threw parties for everything. In fact, one time they had their bathrooms remodeled in their home. And they wanted to throw a party for remodeling the bathroom. Trying to imagine that one. And then there was a next door neighbor were they had their house remodeled, and they were gonna put it on the market, and they went to the open house because they wanted to be a part of that. Yeah. What kind of work? Do they do? You described them coming home from work rise working for a good rail and cleaning and sees the was about to start a job two days awake and L family owned business. Has taken a toll on your staff who worked with them and help them for for all these years. Yes. To raise them at such an early age excuse me, and they are such a vital part of their family our family. So it is extremely difficult. I'm so sorry. Part of what also must be difficult is leading all your other clients, all the other people who rely on Cheever know, how are you talking them through this? Myself and another staff member went out yesterday to meet with house mates and people her to offer them an explanation as best we can about the events of Saturday and to offer any support we are also going to offer people kind of a service where people can come and share their memories and their feelings. So you're planning some kind of gathering within your organization to honor and remember them. Absolutely. And it sounds like these are two brothers who liked to party who would have appreciated that gesture and been right there in the mix. I think that is exactly correct. I think that our Saturdays. You could have counted them to be where they were. That's where they wanted to have been the best way that we can remember them and honor than this to know that they live their life. Well, anybody you talk to in squirrel hill near them. They were well respected in their church and their family is absolutely fantastic. And it's one of the best situations that could ever be. That's Chris show with achiever talking about David sea salt Rosenthal. The brothers were killed Saturday as they attended services at the tree of life synagogue in. Pittsburgh, Chris, thank you. Okay. You're.
