We talk about how we address these issues we roundtables with various. Sectors of of the environmental movement if you will to talk about these issues including, we had tribal roundtable as well and brought tribal leaders to the table to talk about the environment and climate change and and I mean I'm just excited that. Joe Biden. He is someone who will listen. And and he knows how important is that we address climate change and he is he's all in. Wondering if they can talk a little bit about the economic factor in his climate change plan, you mentioned the the plan to create a lot of new good paying union jobs and I think that that's what they really smart. The by campaign has been emphasizing about their climate plan lead the the existential problem of climate change is something that's very scary but I know in the Midwest, a lot of people want to know what the economic consequences or or pros of the plan would be, and they've really focused on sort of the economic advantages that this plan creates. Can we talk a little bit about how you see the climate plan? The economy own absolutely. Yes. So I. Mean. Look we we can invest in renewable energy jobs in send. America back to work. It's a shame the vet this administration is current administration squandered.

Moving toward renewable energy as a way for us to get to really get some of that back I come from a state with over three hundred days of Sun per year that that's New Mexico. In fact, the sun is shining it right now almost every single day. We've got plenty of wind well, the sun in the wind lots of it to go around and we need to harness all that energy and put it to work I.

Representative Deb Haaland Discusses Equal Pay for Native Women, and the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women
"Representative of Holland welcome to the podcast. Thank you very much for having me. It's been an incredible week. We started the week off of course, was Tuesday with the presidential debate, the first one. Of of the the election cycle, which I was one really excited about you know. But for lack of a better word, you know it was kind of disastrous and you know we ended the week with several people when the president's inner circle testing positive for Kobe nineteen and I guess the thing that kept coming back to me because this was happening in the wake of news about I. Think it was something like eight, hundred, fifty thousand women having to leave the workplace like all of these things that are kind of distracting us from this inequality that women are still facing. The native women because we're just ending last week it was native American women's equal pay. Day Yes. So we're not talking about yes. In there are so many important phase it we should be talking about absolutely. So let's talk about him. I think when I look at the Biden plan and I look of what he has in store for native women especially in relation to equal pay I don't think I've seen that before that amount of focus. Well, how would you grade his focus on that area specifically? Oh, I, think it's I think it's you know it's I. Think it's an a plus the other day on native. Women's equal pay day Joe Biden Nationally tweeted tweeted that out and So we re tweeted her tweet specifically talking about native women's Equal Pay Day I'm super excited about everything that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will do when they get in office in. This is just one of them. He I think the number right now is something like when. I read this figure is really hard to fathom that something like native women are paid fifty cents on every dollar to in comparison to a man right and kind of makes me angry a bit and I think if you do the math, it takes native women twenty one months almost two years to be paid equal. What demand makes in a single here. quite stark. Yes. It's. It's very stark, and of course, it's you know women of color are the ones who are suffering from the inequity. Right and I mean, look we we. We are single moms were taking care of family members we I mean there's a lot that we're doing was so little. And so it's time to to start paying attention to those under. Communities Absolutely. So immigrants to the pandemic we all know by now that women are going to get hit harder women of color are going to be hit harder. What is it in the native community native American community that is worsening the pandemic and the fallout from the pandemic especially for women? Well, I mean look wait what we saw as soon as a pandemic really started to take hold in our country is that it highlighted the disparities that that take place in communities of color. That's why we have the highest rates. In here in New Mexico native Americans make up to eleven percent of the population at one time where over fifty percent of the positive cases. So it's a combination of things. We don't have the infrastructure. We need those a lot of homes right now in Indian, country that don't have running water don't have electricity. There's a lot of homes I you know sixty five percent or something like that. It might even be more don't quote me on that but broadband Internet service that type of infrastructure is keeping our students from learning. It's keeping our elderly folks from accessing telehealth services. because. If they're in a rural community and live a really long way away from a hospital or clinic. I mean those are things that that those communities are unable to access. So so it's terrible and you know we're we suffer from a lot of pollution right UNRIG claimed mines in polluted water and in things. That have happened in the past that have never been remedied. So those are all things that we have to work on remedy. Is there anything in relation to greater exposure type of work that you do that they do in liquidities? Well, I mean we have frontline workers in every community right? There's. A main, there's grocery stores in the end of our. Indian communities there are of you know folks are are working in clinics and hospitals and things like that. So. Sure and then, and then there's people who have to go out of their native communities to work in the cities because those are the only jobs they have N I mean any number of frontline jobs that we've heard about right folks in public transportation people were saying grocery stores in healthcare facilities you know hospitals and clinics, and so forth dealing with this pandemic. So yes, I'm I mean we and then you take all that back to your community it's what is consistently happened since this pandemic took hold. In in all of those communities of color, that's another reason why the rates are so

"The methane cloud that you can see on satellite sitting over the four corners region congressman and how does new mexico going forward balance the economic necessity necessity or impact of oil and gas drilling with the need to transition to a more just economy climate-friendly economy. How'd did you see that happening over the next we're already. We're already transitioning just this past week. I climbed to the top of a winter buying over near encino new mexico go and it's pretty amazing right that you you climb to the top open up top and you can see forever the landscape there still herds of antelope running around. There's still people farmers still able to do what they do. It's such a non disruptive type of economic development in clean energy resource. I like i wouldn't mind ever if those were all over the place right. Those are those are revenue new makers and and for folks in those rural communities who might have a bad year farming they still get a check from that wind turbine every month or every year whatever the contract states right so we need to move on renewable energy. That's my answer to that. We don't need <hes> <hes> if we're going to transition the transition is happening. We can make it faster we can we can as members of congress. Yes we want to move forward. We wanna make sure that that folks who <hes> don't make <hes> you know aren't high on the income list can still afford it to have a put solar panels on their homes and and you know those those types of infrastructure needs so i just. I just think that you know saying we need gas and oil we need to do this. We need to fracture chocolate canyon because the state relies on it. I just think that is that's not telling pulling the whole truth of of how we move forward on energy resources in new mexico. I have solar panels on my house. The bill l. seven dollars a month. We charge an electric car on that resource. I don't i just i just feel like that. We can do this this but we we don't need to be sold ability goods every time we turn around saying that you know if we don't do this then our our whole you know state falls apart and look as we diversify new mexico's economy <hes> which is something. I'm proud to see happening where <hes> c._n._n. Explosion the film industry. We're seeing more tech. Startups call new mexico home whether it's tech transfer coming out of our national laboratories or even now oh companies <hes> all across california denver austin salt lake city that are looking for more affordable places to live with high quality of life no better place than you mexico. Oh so if you're out there come on over new mexico's open for business but with the oil and gas industry. Let's start with what is should be happening already in new mexico zico. Why is it that new mexico which is not the top producer of oil or gas in america is the worst when it comes to methane emissions since that problem should be solved can be solved in must be solved. I'm under the leadership of governor michelle luhan grisham with the support of the legislature. There's an effort effort underway to be able to cap all the leaks and stop <hes> prevent eliminate methane flaring inventing by the way it's theft of taxpayer dollars. There's not just for u._s. Tax payers but also here in new mexico <hes> supporting research at our national labs. The trump administration has diminished all of the research advancements advancements when it comes to solar <hes> deployment of the wind resources that congresswoman holland's describing or even the storage capacity upgrading our transmission corridors across america the amount of electrons that are lost with the movement of electricity something that we have to solve all of that can happen in new mexico were perfectly situated the amount of sunshine that we have the advancements at sandia national laboratory with storage and technology <hes> all the way to legislation that myself and u._s. Senator tina smith have laid out which is to get to net zero emissions with electricity generation in the case of our bill by two thousand fifty following the call to action by the panel on climate change jeff from the u._n. So there's things that we can do diversifying our economy taking action <hes> and not putting our head in the sand is going to be critically important decisions going forward. Climate has rightfully emerged as one of the top tier issues in the presidential race. I'd imagine that both of you are in a position to have the the era of a whole lot of this field. You mentioned getting to net zero. What else do both of you want to see this as presidential field prioritize in terms of whether you call it a green new deal or energy plans or just transition what what are the. What are your priorities that you want to see. This field talk about when they're campaigning. We'll definitely all of those things right. How how is our country going to move forward. How how are we going to make sure that you know look in our country. The income disparity has gotten worse and worse and worse. It's so terrible that so many people are living in poverty liberty right now across our country they couldn't afford to <hes> to buy into the renew and think about this those folks if they had solar panels on their homes and their electricity bill was seven dollars a month. That would be helpful to them right sure. I want to see how they're going to make sure that every every every level of income has a chance to essentially be a part of this new transition. I'd really like to see that and of course you know. There's something that's come up several times with me and that is you know native american sacred sites of at aren't within the boundaries of their lands. The standing rock folks people who who protested to protect their sacred lake that sacred lake isn't within the boundaries hundreds of their tribal lands. Just because it's not doesn't mean that it ceases to be a sacred site to them so i like to hear how or see that the field is really exploring that talking about how they work with <hes> tribal leaders and communities to address those types types of discrepancies in and how you know they're able to participate as well look we need a plan of action on how to respond respond to the climate crisis that we're facing around the world and across america the the difference between our candidates and the trump administration in my eyes is simple <hes> <hes> from the onset our candidates have and will continue to call for the united states to rejoin the paris climate accord's as opposed to the president walking away from our candidates will encourage the accelerated the research of <hes> deployment of renewables of solving the storage problem of finding new ways to generate power and getting us to net zero emissions but congresswomen sleman holland touched on something critically important that i've not heard yet and that's answering the call when it comes to health disparities import communities especially in communities of color color and a native american communities where you often see the generation that's in those communities the high rates of asthma <hes> cancers and other chronic diseases is the first time that we had the former e._p._a. Administrator the first ep administrate under donald trump come in and there were all these reports about first first class private chartered jets and chatting to resorts around the world to the mattresses and hand lotion and all the all the scott pruitt stuff when i asked e._p._a. Administrator scott pruitt <hes> how many poor communities he had been to with these travels. The answer was none. They didn't take any time to understand the health disparities that are being caused and chronic conditions that are being placed right at the footstep of families when we went out to those methane plumes and there were families and animals being raised right by who cares about them the e._p._a. The next administration has a responsibility as do all of us to make sure that we're talking about them and finding ways to keep them safe and that's something that i certainly hope that all here in the near future from one of our candidates as well.

"Hey we love being in the land of enchantment so much a couple weeks ago that we came back to another episode this time sitting down with two members of congress in house a wildlife corridors summit it is a fabulous abuse conversation with assistant speaker of the house ben ray luhan and first term congresswoman deb haaland earlier this year. She became the first native american woman to preside over the house of representatives. We talked about wildlife tribal issues national monuments and a whole lot more. I'm very excited about this. Episode also also very excited that later this week we are going to be live in tucson arizona coming up this thursday august twenty ninth. We will be talking the congressman role gonzalvo the chairman of the house natural resources committee. We've got len ness a for the head of natives outdoors and stephanie sklar the executive director of the sonoran institute. If you are in town please come take a listen. We're going to be at american eat company on south fourth avenue. That's an all local food hall all in market. We're going to be taking over the north room starting at three thirty on thursday the twenty ninth. We'll start recording the podcast around four. Please stick around afterwards words to chat with us. Maybe have a beer again this coming thursday. The twenty ninth american eat company in tucson. The podcast starts at four in the afternoon soon. We will see they're all right. Let's do the news starting with some discouraging signs for the sage grouse. That's the bird whose habitat is being threatened and by oil and gas development across the west in idaho. The grouses population has dropped by fifty two percent since two thousand sixteen. That's a trend that biologists allergists have seen in neighboring states as well in wyoming thirty three oil and gas wells have been drilled in core sage grouse habitat under the trump administration compare that to just eight wells at the end of the obama years a report that came out last month from the national wildlife federation the audubon society and the wilderness society the found at the rate of oil and gas leasing in sage grouse habitat is nearly three times higher on the trump administration than it was after the obama administration ministration cut a deal that attempted to stave off a listing under the endangered species act and in a related story. The interior department has launched an all all out assault on the endangered species act announcing three new rules that weaken enforcement of wildlife protections first interior will weaken protections for species species that are listed as threatened but not yet endangered the obvious result the areas that more species will then continue to decline and end up being endangered secondly the rules change the definition of critical habitat they now lit interior leave out places that are suitable for an endangered species but are no longer her current habitat again. It's not rocket science to realize that if you protect less land you are reducing the chances that species could recover in the future and finally interior can now choose to ignore the impacts of climate change on endangered species. The obvious example here is the polar bear their their habitat is literally melting away so they are going to have to move in order to survive but under these new rules interior wouldn't have to protect areas the the polar bears will inevitably have to move to so all of these changes as a whole make it clear the intent here is to give interior secretary david bernhardt all the leeway he needs to pick and choose which species to save and which to let go extinct if that's more convenient his former clients alliance and of course changes like this will not go unchallenged expect to see lots of lawsuits from state attorneys general and conservation groups we are honored to be joined today by two new mexico congressional representatives assistant speaker of the house ben ray luhan and representative deborah holland. Thanks to both of you for being here on the podcast. Today this is all right. Thanks for coming out to towns new mexico and you're always welcome make sure you get a chance to <hes> get outdoors here and enjoy some of the splendors of the cuisine and once you get hooked on chill.

Well is one of my favorite places in the entire world and not just being here and test drive up here is beautiful and amazing. One one of the most spectacular drives yeah so we're recording this right now. From the sagebrush in there is a wildlife summit going on right now to discuss conserving wildlife migration corridors put on by the national wildlife federation and a host of other land wildlife advocates and we'll. We'll talk more about that in in a minute but i want to start by acknowledging that this is a very special part of the south west here in northern new mexico. You can't help but be aware of the strong connections between the people and the land and water and wildlife here. It is obviously a spiritual connection. That's a part of the the core identity of the tribal cultures and the hispanic cultures that have been here for thousands and hundreds of years respectively actively. I wonder if i wanna start with both of you to talk about how the trump administration's policies as they affect new mexico's land and walter and wildlife do they feel personal to you because of that connection absolutely they absolutely feel personal to me and i take that personal personal emotion to congress with me when i am defending our mine and ben raise bill to protect chaka canyon for example right <hes> against gas and oil drilling for a ten mile radius so that area needs permanent protections my <hes> the my ancestoral homeland part of my argument in committee when we were passing the bill through markup was my ancestors are buried there thinking thinking that that might help people to understand the significance of it <hes> we didn't get one republican to vote that bill through committee so so yes yes it is personal to me when i think about the <hes> gosh the centuries of drought and famine that my ancestors persevered through because they had the idea that they needed to sustain themselves so that generations down the line would move into the future and and be their legacy congressman look the significance of the summit <hes> that has come together here highlighting how we have to be working together not just to protect these wildlife corridors but protecting our public lands and access. I'm here in the community where we are today the the significance associated with the pueblo leaders with house pueblo. If you've hadn't if you had a chance to go visit taus pablo really to pay your respects there. There's there's something spiritual usual magical serene about just taking a few footsteps and stopping and just taking it in the magic of the return of blue lake another important protected areas sacred site and as congressman holland pointed out the significance of legislation solution to protect chuckle canyon in the greater area surrounding it <hes> as deb said her ancestors go back thirty four thirty five generations nations time immemorial <hes> active in eight hundred a._d. Think about the significance of that but growing up and and being able to get into the outdoors whether it was camping or fishing or hiking <hes> getting on my bike <hes> exploring new things learning what to eat and what not to eat <hes> careful when you're out there <hes> but it's about that education and what i appreciate from <hes> the pueblo leaders in friends that i've <hes> <hes> called friends of mine entire life they help me understand the magic of that medicine chest and so while many of us may go into the bathroom war in two of a utility room and open up a door and there's all your medicine and cabinet think about that medicine chest is with the gathering of herbs of healing of the spiritual place that can't even describe the magic of spirituality <hes> the special place that we call home in new mexico but especially here in towse and all of our public lands that were so honored to work together to protect you are both in an unique positions to lead on wildlife and environmental issues as an assistant speaker as a subcommittee chair on <music> on natural resources share real quickly your priorities on the legislative level for new mexico's land and water. Are you mentioned chaco canyon. What else is on on your shortlist right. Well making it impossible for any president to take a pen and chop off a big swath of our public lands another thing right. We want those public lands intact for every single person to enjoy. I like to see a fully fund full funding of the land and water conservation fund <hes> <hes> and you know i have been very very outspoken about no border wall because the border wall in and of itself alf is it hampers the ability for wildlife to sustain itself as well so all of those you know look there's is no one to speak up for the animals and the fish and the plants in the forest we have to do that and and it's pretty obvious to me that we're here because because of our environment right we destroy it that means the destruction of future generations so so those are some of my priorities and and proud and happy to stand up for them. Well i want to thank god chairwoman holland for the work and the advocacy that she brings everyday <hes> she is one of the newly elected chairs of a subcommittee as a new member of the house of representatives. <hes> that's an incredible feat and responsibility <hes> in previous congresses you we don't see new members have that leadership role as one of the leaders <hes> congresswoman holland <hes> brought <hes> several other leaders to new mexico because the honor of hosting german greenhow. Oh who's the chair of the full committee on natural resources alan lowenthal also subcommittee chair <hes> and congresswoman holland chair holland and i did a site visit out to choco where we didn't just take in the history to sacred secred nature of that important place but we also went out to where there was some methane plumes now you can smell it when you're out there but the groups that came together with us actually shared with some cameras that allowed us to see it while we smelled it we had field hearings in new mexico co that chairwoman holland helped lead. We took that back. She led the effort in the house of representatives with the hearing on the protection of chaco canyon <hes> as the assistant speaker.

You lend your advocacy you collaborate your partner and you make sure that you build to that table as large as you can until you're able to get these packages across the finish line. We're going to get back to l. w. c._f. Because as as we all know were we're halfway there in terms of authorising but not guaranteeing funding but i want to start with wildlife corridors because we are here at a wildlife migration summit. There is a bill pending wildlife corridors conservation act <hes> first of all either of you just walk us through briefly what that bill does does and then more importantly. What do you think the chances are of getting some major wildlife bill through in this congressional session so the the critical nature of this package. Is it protects the it does what it says. It's a wildlife poor door conservation act so think of the movement went heard or species as they're going from one area to another <hes> as we continue to see build out an encroachment challenges with a climate change changing terrains raines ecosystems in drought those wildlife corridors are quickly disappearing <hes> they're they're being infringed upon if you will <hes> and as deb said there's no one out there <hes> if you will at least we've figured it out yet <hes> to understand the spoken word from the creatures <hes> that we the <hes> call our friends and that we're not <hes> to to protect <hes> many friends and family as well that <hes> extend that a branch out to even been call family as well with our four legged friends or those that flyer those swim <hes> and so that's what this package will do it ensures that we're gonna protect corridors we identify identify these corridors that we also work with tribal leaders with pueblo leaders and we work to maintain that wildlife corridor for the movement of those animals across these protected lands public public areas tribal land pueblo lands as well. It's an important package..

"deb haaland" Discussed on State of the Union with Jake Tapper
"You ZipRecruiter, the smartest way to hire. Welcome back to state of the union of Jake tapper when congress comes back in session in January. There will be at least eighteen six new members of the house of representatives. The most diverse group ever elected joining me now democratic congresswoman elect Deb Haaland of New Mexico. One of the two first native American women ever elected to Congress Republican congressman like Dan Crenshaw of Texas. A former Lieutenant Commander in the navy seals and democratic congresswoman elect Chrissy Houlahan, a former air force, captain who flipped the seat and Pennsylvania. Go eagles. Perhaps good luck that use the good luck. You had we'll both coming to them as well. So you've all seen congressman elect Crenshaw get attacked on SNL and deal with that. Obviously, your colleague Alexandria, Costco, Cortez a congresswoman like from New Yorkers has also been attacked a quite a bit on her first week on the job a lot of people talking about civility, but things here in Washington. And in the nation really seem nastier than ever. And I'm wondering if you think your class will try to usher in an era of of. Operation, bipartisanship and civility. Well, first of all I feel like some people's definition of attacked is different than ours. And what we've seen this week? We have all worked together extremely hard. We've you know, it's been a very fast pace week orientation going from one orientational the next at opposite ends of the capital, and I feel like we've all been very cooperative and actually quite civil to each other. What do you think you've you've been in the in the barrel as it were echo that sentiment of what does it really mean to be attacked in? My whole message last week was was I really attacked was. I was I really offended that doesn't mean what was said was not highly insulting. And should be addressed. But I don't need to feel attacked. And I think that was the message we're trying to send and the other message. We're trying to send also don't insult people. We can attack each other's ideas. But not each other as people. That's that's should be the goal moving forward. What do you think? So I agree. I frankly would like. To see our orientational more bipartisan. I would like to see maybe that's something that we can do in the future where we bring ourselves together more frequently in an orientation way, but part of my campaign in my candidacy was absolutely about the issue of decency and civility I think it really is important to pull people together, my part of Pennsylvania. My part of Philadelphia is really purple. It's forty percent Republican forty percent democrat in twenty percent independent and to a person we just wanna see civil discourse come back, and and talk about ideas and not harass people and two of your veterans. And you're the child of a run you were just at Arlington visiting. Your father's military household, and so President Trump has just said on a different network that he should have gone to Arlington National Cemetery on Veterans Day. But he was busy making calls doing things for the country. What do you make of all this? What do you make of the debate about whether or not he should he should have done more on that on that day? And does it matter to you? Well, I went to. Arlington on Veterans Day and to visit my father's grave, and while there, I I spoke to woman who brought her folding chair and sat in front of her son's grave seemingly for hours. I want. I feel like Americans might. They have sacrificed. And so showing that you care about that sacrifice show giving respect to our fallen soldiers. I think it is is an easy thing to do especially if you live in the same city as the cemetery. So being a veteran myself in third generation military, and my grandmother and grandfather are buried at Arlington. And so I tend to share your belief with. I think it's important that our commander in chief respect the veterans and the people who have served our country, so fundamentally I also have four active duty cousins right now. And so this is personal to me that it also is about our nation user? Well, I've been Arlington multiple times to bury my friends, I've least two funerals there at that. I've attended and gone back occasionally, I also does the president on a very personal level has treated those gold star families, very, well and any has embraced him. And he's been very good to them..

"Every station. My name is Deb Haaland. I'm the democratic nominee for New Mexico's first congressional districts if elected, if elected, I'll be the first native American woman in congress. Did you catch that than anybody catches that? You're sure you're not the second Deb use your thing. That lady was whiter than casper the ghost over there. You don't think she's the first native American Congress. You don't know, maybe not. I guess it would be Deb. So I really like that. I think it is a dig at Liz Warren because it is a fence if two people who don't lie about where they come from, but this is the kind of thing, right? This is what you get at the net roots conference. This is what the Democrats are setting up for twenty twenty. Their platform is going to be all identity. All identity, politics, not thoughts, not ideas, not even public policy. All identity. Listen to me because I'm a native American. Listen to me in the case of Warren because I'm a fake native American woman listened to me because I'm a black Muslim lesbian Martian from Venus. I don't know how I was that. I don't know how that's possible. And illegally, you might say. Another serious contender showed up comma Harris come Lara's from my own state of California. What was most interesting about her speech though, because she, she touched on all the same points, but she played it safe and I'm wonder what that shows. Here's comma Harris spouting in in platitudes as I look around this room, I see the best of what America is really about, and I see the best of what America can be unburdened by what we have been. And I see in this room and all that is represented in this room, the power of the people and these past eighteen months have demonstrated that the people in power are no match for the power of the people. Wow. How brave we're when did you write that under Vlad itunes, and I am here to tell you that the sky is blue, not red. It's not read. It's blue sky. I am here be. I'm so proud to be here because the sun is bright, not dark. It's not dark. It's it's bright. A do. I clap. I don't know. She said it in such an emphatic way. There's a character. Congress woman character on thirty rock. I don't know if you've seen this. Forget her name as you like maybe the fifth season or something. And she comes in and she just starts talking and saying things that are just either in aim platitudes are nonsense, but because she says them infallibly, everyone gives her a standing ovation that was comma Harris at this and that roots conference. And part of that is she's considered a favorite going into this election. We don't really know anything about her. She's relatively new to the Senate. She doesn't have much of a record. We know she's lefty, but a lot of the commentary about her has focused on all of these aspects of identity politics. She herself has totally embraced identity politics. She has run on them. She's on a black woman. That's why you've got to support me. That's why I'll be good. And so I think perhaps comma Harris things, she's going into twenty twenty with this great advantage, the Democrats embracing identity politics, that is what they're running on. She has the most identity politics not only black, but a woman in only woman, but. From California. I dunno issue all of not only that, but she's young and she's this and that, right? She checks all of these boxes. And so she thinks right, I can play it safe because this is mine right now. I'm in the lead right now and I don't know given her electoral coalition that very well might be the case. She she clearly has an advantage over Cory Booker. Cory Booker is a man man, comma Harris woman. So she she played it relatively safe, but she, she still got her hits. I mean, she still had her credit here is coming Harris going on. Let's speak truth that if it wasn't clear before Sarlat Ville, it is clear. Now, racism is real in this country, and we need to deal with that. Let's be true sexism Israel in this country.

"I mean it's red meat but again we'll get to the nfl owners in a second but why do you think the boss capable players are allowed to well can do it without incurring the presidential rough i think the first thing is because you know the president to bully and i think that you know that lebron james would fight him back and you know that steve kerr the coach of the golden state warriors and gregg popovich the coach the san antonio spurs they they fight back they do not allow themselves to be bullied by anybody and so you see that relationship you also see a great relationship between between the league and the players and coaches the difference between the nfl and the nba is that the nba has encouraged its players to use their voice they don't find themselves at risk of losing their jobs and losing their careers by speaking out politically they have a national anthem policies so the players in the nba do not neil against the the flag during the national anthem and they're encouraged to use their voice so you see the power of lebron james he's not going to back down from the president so what we've now seen is the nfl by contrast tell the players that they must stand if they don't wanna stand to have to stay in the dressing room but we also know what into the wall street journal the some of the nfl leaders owners have said that it is president trump and pressure from president trump and conversations that influence their decision on how to handle these protests we'll know exactly and that's one of the reasons why when you hear people in the public and why it's so disappointing when you hear people in the public use this as a first amendment issue and say well it's not a first amendment issue that the private owners have a right to do and say what they want and that the players have no power when you have the president who is public figure who is the government essentially attacking these athletes and telling them that they shouldn't be employed and creating pressure on the owners who do employ them does become a first amendment issue and you also have the other two branches of government as well attacking these players so it's disappointing when you see how easily the public is willing to silence the player and i think what's also interesting about this too is when you look at the combination of not just the flags and the flyovers and the police and the thawra tarian elements that are on taking place at the game the fact that you also have the federal government and you have the the pentagon essential paying for these these patriotic displays at the same time when the players are being silent and i wonder whether many americans right now whether i did not know that by the way and i'm in the news business i had no idea that they were paying for these patriotic flyovers and and visitations from military and others and that you know that was that was happening right now in the post nine eleven world but i do wanna go back when we go to hold of pictures of people like pull ropes and most knows and as an entertainer but he was an athlete jackie robinson mohammadali all of them had public moments of protests and and of course the black power salutes at nine hundred sixty eight olympics again protests there and kareem abduljabbar who didn't even play the nineteen sixty eight olympics because of protesting civil rights in the light so people have forgotten this remind us of the history then through some of these black athletes of the pas i well absolutely what you have a break here if you're of a certain generation you remember mohammed ali and you remember bill russell in jim brown and tommy smith and john carlos as you mentioned that there is a a long history a heron heritage and inheritance of african american athletes being involved in the argument that i make in the book is that the black athlete is the most important most influential most visible blackout black employees this country's ever produced so they felt that they had a responsibility to get involved because they were the ones who made it they were the ones who integrated the country let's not forget that it was in baseball that integrated the the country before the.

"Now we turn to yet another divisive issue that has to be addressed in america and that is the police shootings killings of unarmed black men and officers shot and killed a black teenager in pittsburgh last week and this is prompted more calls for answers from law enforcement on thuan rose was shot three times as he ran away from police cop and this is the issue that prompted some nfl players to take a knee at games during the national anthem as a form of protests call him cabinet and others have taken a beating from the president the public and team owners but the truth is that black activism in sports is not a new phenomenon in the united states and how it bryant has written a fascinating and important new book about the power and the history of protests on the playing field he's a senior reporter at espn magazine and the book is called the heritage black athletes divided america and the politics of patriotism and how bryant joins me now from hot foot canoe etiquette welcome to the program chrissy and thanks for having me so what is it that i made you write this book what actual incident was it that caused you to take a look at what's going on right now well i think it was actually two issues i think the first thing was what was taking place in ferguson in two thousand fourteen when michael brown was killed by police and then the series of incidents that took place after that with eric garner and timor rice following that and i began to look at this rise of athletes getting involved when for so many years we didn't hear from them for so many years the player stayed away from political issues but that christiaan was also combined with something else and that was the rise of the flags and flyovers and militarism and patriotism taking place at sporting events you saw this collision and what was interesting to me was that you had this rise of patriotism in a place where sports were supposed to bring people together combined with this rise of athletes getting involved and the collision was taking place in a in a in a place where in sports where we really weren't expecting that and where sports were supposed to be the place where everybody had a you had your a team i had my team but sports is really the most divisive place in american culture right now so what do you make i mean this go to the colin kapp nick issue because that really has been so emblematic so prominent and he's really paid a price i mean some of his teammates say that you know he was toned into public enemy number one he was hung out to dry he still doesn't have a job and this whole business of taking a knee i think people sort of thought that this was sort of an unwarranted i kind of public protests in an arena that should just be about sports and not about politics but you delve right back into the history of this well no question and i think that when you talk about the price that players are paying you see that there's political capital here you see what happened with the president today with the with the travel ban you see the fact that these players have become part of a political narrative when we talk about the divisiveness in this country where now the president is using these athletes as being unfit to be in the country he's called them sob's for protesting you've seen him say that maybe they don't belong in the united states for their protests against police brutality so what's taking place now in sports is there's political capital to be gained by by the political opposition to protest and the players are paying serious price and now we're trying to find out we're going to see what the players are going to do about this very interesting christine about this is that in football the pay the players are paying tremendous price but in basketball you see players like lebron james and dwayne wade in these multimillion dollars superathletes using their power and the press doesn't attack them and act their capital is actually a positive we'll right lebron james kobe bryant and others they've been wearing icon read with seeing the picture that's obviously referring to ghana who was who died shouting to the police that he couldn't breathe in a in a.

"To frincis just close the door now to let's say refugees from syria i mean almost non have come in a very tiny number in two thousand eighteen compared with several thousand in two thousand seventeen and many more than that before if there's any wiggle room left in this little litigation it's over the visa waiver process and if the challengers can show that people are being systematically denied when they have very good reasons to be granted visas they may be able to pressure the administration with litigation okay rule litigating into being a little more loose an a little more generous in ranting visas but i would say that at the moment the administration has one in just about every respect and there's no reason to think that they're going to behave differently in the future needed trojan thank you so much and of course all of this emerges in the heated and often ugly atmosphere of the whole zero tolerance of program at the us mexico border dead holland the democratic candidate for congress from new mexico is running as a passionate advocate for immigrant and refugee rights and what is most ironic holland is a member of the laguna pueblo tribe one of the first americans whose ancestors were victims of genocide by european immigrants now she's on track to make history as the first native american woman ever elected to congress deb haaland join me from albuquerque to discuss this and the issues of the day deb holland welcome to the program thank you so let me ask you about this supreme court decision it was very narrow along politics on lines five to four majority but do you agree with the decision that the presidential decree is well within presidential authority you know i don't agree i am i am distraught over this decision from the time president trump has taken office it seems as though his racist attitudes have guided his policies across the board and and i'm disappointed and and just distraught over over the decision of course he would say he's not racist and his supporters would say he's not racist but be that as it made from your point of view i wanna ask you why you are so pro immigration of all people native americans should kind of be anti immigration giving your history tell me how you'll family history informs joy 'immigration policies and views it's been five hundred years since since europeans came to this country and so that's a long time and it's essentially too late for us to go back right we my grandparents who were products of the assimilation era worked extremely hard to ensure that our family moved into the future if you will because they realized that there wasn't any going back so the best they could do is preserve our culture or language or traditions so that we would have that going into the future my grandparents were very very supportive of education and work ethic and all of those things that helped us to move into to the twentieth century where we are now and and yes even though i'm thirty fifth generation new mexican on my grandparents side my my dad's grandparents immigrated to the united states in eighteen eighty one from norway i realized firsthand how important immigration is two of the betterman of our country immigrants helped to build our country as it is today and i think that the best we can do is to be a welcoming society and that's exactly how my laguna grandmother was she she welcomed people into our village into her home and and we need to do that we need to have good relations with our community in order to be successful so let me ask you then about some of the issues the president trump raises he talks a lot about crime he talks a lot about security on the border you'll from new mexico you hoping to become a congresswoman and new mexico is a border state i mean he's basically saying the democrats weak on immigration and they won't open borders but the last few times came to a vote democrats voted overwhelmingly for enhanced border security so what is your view on border security and do you think that agenda concerns about that there's a difference between protecting our borders and targeting parents moms and dads who are working to find their kids a better life there's a difference between working to.
