S did what it set out to do in Afghanistan, he told reporters. It's time to stop sending another generation of Americans to war with no expectation of a different outcome. We did not go to Afghanistan to nation Bill. And it's the right and the responsibility of Afghan people alone to decide their future and how they want to run their country. Longtime foreign policy analyst Aaron David Miller is with us now. Good morning. Good morning. Now where do you stand on the U. S withdrawal? Um, you know, it's a 20 year old year old war where the standard for victory in My judgment was never could we win. But when would we leave and what would would leave behind? And, frankly, um, extrication believing? Is not the standard by which you want to judge the political and military performance of probably the most consequential, uh, actor on Earth. The United States. I mean, this is the boldest and potentially riskiest foreign policy decision. Of the Biden presidency so far, and one that none of his three predecessors clearly we're prepared to take. He is prepared to take it. I just think, post withdrawal and nobody should be celebrating here but post withdrawal Is going to be a very ugly, um, picture to say the least. Let's talk about that. What do you mean, when you say ugly picture? What do you expect Afghanistan to look like after the United States or promised under several administrations quite a lot. It promised reconstruction. It promised women's rights it promised. Degree of economic dynamism for the country justice for the 9 11 Attackers. And the promotion of democracy. Most of that, with the exception of killing Osama bin Laden and weakening Al Qaeda have all fallen flat. And the majority of the country. Afghans remain poor and disenfranchised. You have a kleptocratic elite. That scrambled to salvage its privilege and to maintain itself in power, So I think most of those goals will be revealed. As not a temple. Uh, you're going to have a high degree of domestic turmoil and violence whether Kabul falls quickly. We're in six months or not at all. It's just not the picture that Americans hope to see, and it's going to remain a poster child for the president. Highly politicized, warm, I suspect, um largely by Republicans and critics of the president. As to why we should not have withdrawn. There are also a lot of Afghans who bought into these ideas that the Americans brought with them that the country should be more democratic that the country should be freer, particularly women who have gained rights over the last couple decades. What does the United States so two Afghan civilians who had like women who had no rights under the Taliban? You know, it's it's a moral hazard, and the president yesterday in his remarks delivered some pretty hard truths. He said he would continued it speak up about the rights. Of of Afghan women, but he also made it unmistakably clear that future of women Democracy.

He's made him or instead of like you're voting for the Republican Party of Regions supporting Republican ideas, you kind of more supporting him, you know. I don't know what's gonna happen to the Republican Party to after him like because he kind of seems like the face of it now, you know, so I'm interested to see what's gonna happen. And he changed, he says would be a welcome thing. Whatever comes next, Jacob has his fingers crossed that President Joe Biden will have a good presidency for the world. I'm Danny Rivero in Miami. Danny Rivero joins us now from his home in Miami. Good to have you here, Danny. It's great to be here. So you started your story describing Jacob Cuenca's past years, a wild ride and you definitely describe that accurately s O. Jacob's a registered Republican voting in his first presidential election. He ended up voting for Biden after a long, hard look at what four years of Trump amounted to and and yet Jacob is still a registered Republican. Tell us more about that Danny and what he's feeling about the GOP. The party he was initially drawn to sew at the presidential level. Jacob is really feeling kind of without a home. At this point, he feels like a Republican. He feels conservative deep down in his bones, but The way that's been represented at the top of the ticket. The last couple years is just it's become unraveled. You know, he does not any longer support the Trump Republicanism at the same time, a little bit lower down the ballot. He did vote Republican and a congressional race that we had So he still sees some bit of representation. But whatever the party does moving forward, he really wanted to look different than than Trump starting from the top, and it's interesting how Jacob became conservative. I mean, family often has a huge political influence on kids. But Jacob's family was politically mixed. Mamat, Democrat While Jacob's dad is Republican. How much of their views influence Jacob? Would you say he was swinging between the sway of his two parents? Or was he more independently kind of making up his own mind? You know, I did ask that question directly to Jacob. And he said, You know, he basically came to understand things as his own. I think people that grow up in mixed families if not being swayed, one direction or the other. It does make people more likely to be open toe listen to other points of view. You know when, when I started talking to Jacob last March, when he first registered to vote, he was Republican. But he was he was open to hearing the other side. You know, he saw some things and Bernie Sanders said that he liked Was still a Republican on do you could you know he was kind of open to being talked into a different position. If you will. So zooming out of Florida was a state where former President Donald Trump had a lot of visibility. A lot of support. What is your takeaway Danny? After following and covering Latino electorate in Florida, Did we learn anything important this election cycle. You know, I don't know what we learned. I mean, it's it's definitely a subject of much debate. But so much of this comes down to just individual characters and characteristics and and family histories. You know, like I mentioned Jacob comes from a politically mixed family that might have played Role in him being swayed away from being a fan of former President Donald Trump, who he was a fan of originally at the same time. There's a lot of Latinos here that come from families that have Republicans on both sides, and what we saw in the last election cycle was a lot of Those kind of families actually became more entrenched. They became more Republican, Maura lined with the Republican Party under President Trump. And every means to be seen with former president Trump taking You know he's kind of faded already a little bit into the background. We don't know how visible he'll be in 2022 2024 if that kind of entrenchment continues or if people are going to be more open toe. Two different things and on the Democratic side to as well.

You're with the world. All our We've been looking at the issues that Dr decision making and turnout among young Latino voters here in the U. S. So for our final Friday, Reporters Roundtable before Election Day, were joined by two reporters who are part of our every 30 Seconds project. Naomi Prove those a reporter with double UNC in Greensboro, North Carolina, Marco and Danny Rivera, his story You heard earlier in the show. He's with W lron in Miami. Marco. Hello to both of you Unwelcome Naomi Let me start with you When I think of North Carolina think of efforts to reach out to black voters. But when it comes to targeting Latino voters, I don't hear a lot even though I know the Latino community across North Carolina is rapidly growing. Why is that? Honestly, It's compartmentalization when these candidates come to North Carolina or South Carolina or just the South in general. They think black voters and that's it because it's very important, and the South has a lot of strong black history when they go to California or Texas or New Mexico there thinking Latino voters. This is where the Latino population is growing, and that's who we need to focus on. Also in North Carolina. It's a new Latino community. It's it's recently grown over the last three decades, and so because of that, there's a kind of an UN established voting tradition. Alba Sanchez is with the Latin American Coalition in Charlotte, and she recently spoke about how the Latino community feels left out of this because when we started this initiative there were about 30,000 eligible Latino voters in Mecklenburg County. But maybe 200 or 300 actually showed up at the polls. Why aren't they voting? We asked ourselves well because they aren't well informed because candidates don't reach out to them personally. And in turn, they think their vote doesn't matter. And so, with the less you know, community growing, we're almost at 10% in North Carolina, maybe next election cycle, These candidates will reach out more. Danny Rivero in Florida. It is a different story. Historically, campaign's focus hard on Florida's Latino voters and reaching out to Venezuelan Americans, Cuban Americans, others Is there a risk of focusing so much on this.

"Dot ay ay. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve Inskeep, and I'm no. Well, King right now. Despite the pandemic, a lot of colleges and universities have some students on campus. And of course, they have plans for keeping those students safe. But in NPR analysis finds that a lot of schools are not taking what seems like a basic step. They're not regularly testing students for Corona virus. NPR's listen Add word. He has been on a road trip visiting college campuses, and she's with us to talk about this new data. Hey, Lissa. Good morning. What? What campus you on this morning? So we're at the University of Colorado Boulder, where due to a large outbreak on campus, there is currently a band for 18 to 22 year olds on any social gathering over to people across the country. Many university towns have struggled to keep the campus spread under control. And you found that most campuses, you know, despite having other barriers in place like gatherings, they aren't regularly testing students. That's right. So one strategy that's been particularly helpful in keeping spread low on campus has been widespread testing. But our analysis shows that's not happening. We use data from more than 1400 colleges compiled by the College Crisis Initiative at Davidson College. The national data shows that more than two out of three colleges with some in person classes aren't doing any regular testing. Some have no clear testing plan. Others are only testing symptomatic students. Even though we know asymptomatic people can pass it on your most of the country isn't doing aggressive, widespread testing what makes it extra dicey on college campuses? Well, colleges are social breeding grounds. I mean, they're super social places, And if schools can't get in front of outbreaks, they're playing catch up and so spread is happening, unknowingly and seeping into surrounding communities. And many colleges are ending the semester early, sending students home in November. Here's David Paul Teel, a public health expert at Yale University. I am deeply concerned about the fact that Thanksgiving they roll around and we may be sending all sorts of ticking time bombs home. Ticking time bombs is not what you want to hear. Why aren't more colleges doing widespread testing? Well, there's two reasons one. The CDC is guidelines didn't recommend it. Just last week, they issued new guidance, saying entry level testing, combined with regularly testing students quote might prevent or reduce Koven 19 transmission, but stopped short of actually making clear recommendations. Here's Paul deal again. If the CDC has issued schools a freak get out of jail. Positive says Go ahead and do nothing. Then you know what do we expect? The CD sees guidance is dangerous, and it's disingenuous and not evidence based. The other big reason is cost in. Some places test still cost more than $100. Here's Terry Hartal of the American Council on Education, a group of college presidents. It's expensive undertaking. The amount of money college universities will spend on testing. Is likely to dwarf every projection we would have made a few months ago. And that's because it's not just one test per student. They gotta test students multiple times. In a letter to congressional leaders last week, higher education groups requested at least $120 billion from Congress to help them with added quote. A virus costs including testing is that a sign that colleges air starting to think differently about widespread testing? Yeah, we are seeing colleges start to do more regular testing, especially after they've detected an outbreak at the University of Wisconsin Madison. After a spike there, they started weekly testing the dorms on campus. I expect will continue to see this. You know, it's important to remember, though, that the most effective way to do widespread testing is to make it mandatory, Not voluntary and the more steam to test the better.

"Shifter from the in utero album in it? Kurt cobain interrogates himself asking why he alternates between this. And that hot and cold again Jacob's brother Tristen politics recently when I speak about certain things. I'm like stigma. Been doing this research and all this stuff you know. Kinda like not flip-flopping but kind of Wayne the pros and cons of of outside sort of like what Jacob is doing with President Donald Trump. He doesn't really like trump but he plans to vote for him. Because for Jacob trump lease stance closer to the conservative ideals that he tries to follow a look like trump. He says like some nonsense and like and obviously. I. I really don't agree with a lot of things. He does like building the wall or like an how he thinks. Climate change is fake. Like yeah like but you can't let one person ruined the whole entire Party. Unlike much of the country Latino Culture in south Florida is not dominated by Mexicans. Most immigrants here came from the Caribbean and South America and that brings a different frame of political reference. Jacobs mom is a Mexican American Democrat and his dad is a cuban-american who voted for trump and trends more conservative in his house. Jacob says he grew up hearing stories about Cuba's leftists government. His grandfather on his dad's side was a political prisoner there. He fled from Cuba like oh. He refused communism two times writing thrown in jail and they put him for like nine years of work in the sugar cane fields but politically jacobs says he came to realize he's a republican on his own even as he holds some more liberal values like supporting abortion rights. Everything you've heard from Jacob up to this point was from before the coronavirus pandemic hit. I recently caught up with him to one sin and some things were starting to change. My Dad's ours have gone so that's like something that's kind of scary. She is having big doubts about the president that idea of holding his nose and voting for trump despite his misgivings. He's not so sure about that anymore. Because of the corona virus came out of nowhere and supposedly like the administration knew about like the arch Just the whole thing like flu calling back and forth and all this stuff I duNno. Situ- handle it right. So now Jacob is facing a choice between who he sees as too incompetent candidates but the new reality Corona virus now has I'm leaning in an unexpected direction kind of always helped a little people people that are like losing their jobs so I think right now I don't know I kind of radical through Biden and trump. He still feels like a Republican. But at this point Jacob would probably vote for Democrat Joe Biden over president trump because he says biden might be more likely to pass social programs. That would help families like his own for the world. I'm Danny Rivero in Miami. Jacobs story is part of every thirty seconds so reporting project.

"From the front end because they have that Authority to to make that determination on the front end of a sentence in prison. It's a little bit more complicated. Because the person who's in there has already been sentenced to something and then that changes the calculation a little bit security. What do we know about the number of people who've actually been released from federal prisons to home confinement so as when we looked at this a little bit over a week ago for the Marshall Project? There were only about a thousand people who've been sent home under the guidance which is half percent of the federal prison population. So it's really a drop in the bucket. I understand that there have been multiple lawsuits around the country by people who are incarcerated. Can you tell us about some of those lawsuits? If any of stood out to you the there have been number of them One of the ones that said most recently had an update was on Friday. Texas death row prisoners filed a lawsuit and they also filed to intervene an existing lawsuit from other Texas prisoners. But I mean it was striking to me that even in solitary confinement on death row they feel that the prison system can't adequately take care of them. That alone is pretty stark. And you know some of the things they're asking for so basic they're asking for consistent access to running water and soap. They're not asking to get out there not asking off of death row. They're just asking to be cared for better. And one of the things. They bring up in their lawsuit. Which hasn't gotten a lot of attention. Is that you also have an extremely high needs population in some parts of prison systems like severely delusional mentally. Ill We have people that hallucinate demons and snakes who are generally captain solitary confinement. It's not clear that they can understand. What a pandemic is or how they're supposed to protect themselves setting aside the fact that the officers may or may not tell them because going around and telling individual cells on death row how to protect yourself from pandemic is you know probably not a priority for them and even if you do some of them are extremely mentally impaired so I mean there are some serious concerns that that lawsuit raises. Danny what are you expecting to see in the weeks and months to come in facilities in Florida? The numbers don't look good for the state prison system. They they've gone up considerably just over the last week in the local. Jails here in Miami Dade County almost doubled so you know it's just it's the nature of confinement in a in a of being trapped within four walls you know the the ability to social distance is very limited. There's thousands of inmates across the state that are currently in Medical Corinthian and the state governments issued a lot of statements about it saying they're they're tackling it and whatnot but Aside from from mass releases which there doesn't seem to be an appetite for. It's pretty clear at this point that there is going to continue to be spread within different kinds of facilities that local and state level and It's a little bit of fingers. Crossed is honestly part of my assessment Kerry reporting on conditions in jails and prisons is never particularly easy. I can imagine it might be even more difficult during pandemic over the course of your reporting how you manage to find information about what's actually happening inside. Well I mean. I've had a lot of families that reach out to me but it's also interesting that I think that some prisons because they're not interested in doing so searches as much right now have more access to contraband phones And I think this is true across many different prison systems. I also think that people are a little more desperate a little more willing to reach out to reporters whether that's through traditional means of you know written letters or some cases like it's pretty easy to get calls from federal prison if they have access to the legitimate phone system so I think that in some cases people are more likely to reach out right now because they're so desperate you know normally the the fear retaliation and the concerns about talking. The media can be assembling block for some people in terms of not wanting to reach out but right now things are so dire that I'm hearing a lot more. I mean it's just been a constant fire hose of tragedy. Basically Danny Rivero is a reporter and producer for wwl. Rn public radio.

"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.

"Go backwards guaranteeing school funding, and the PF PFC and the state constitution is the right place to begin is the implication of the Dunleavy isn't guaranteeing the PF do this payment. Well, possibly Dunleavy's actually proposing a higher PF de payment than baggage. But baggage is wants to put the state constitution. This was a check everyone received up until three years ago. And it's a large check baggage is looking for about a two thousand dollar Dunleavy's talking about it's about roughly three thousand dollar PF de neither has been really clear about how they're gonna pay for it. And the fear is that they're just going to draw down the state's large savings all that oil wealth. Some of it's protected by the state constitution. But some of it isn't and the more of that money spent the could could have really rough implications for this states future. That's Andrew kitchen, min state government and politics reporter at Katie. Jio in Alaska public media on again with some people are calling the weirdest and least predictable campaign in the country going into the midterms. The governor's race there in Alaska. Andrew, thank you. Thank you, Robin. It's a quirk of Florida politics. 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 Rivero of wwl RN explains. If you live in Florida on election day, you'll get the option to ban offshore drilling. And also, Ben 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 nineteen ninety 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 that 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 is not happy with force every county to have five elected government officials, including sheriff and supervisor of elections the amendment that's on the agenda is sandwiched in between motherhood and apple pie. 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 and almost even split between the two parties says Ellen freidan any. Thing 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, a Republican appointed officials and that can make things look political. Even if they're not an Emory Gama's was on this year's commission on the committee that helped write the language voters will see she says politics were not at 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 had a somewhat of a nexus or a natural connection. Game is offers the example of amendment nine which would been offshore drilling and vaping 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 purse. Finally, 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 it 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..
