"The united states constitution being the greatest political document ever written and the longest lasting constitution of. It's kind it stood the test of time because it was not written for the times it was written to stand the test of time. It was analysis of human behavior. And as we see this breaking news over the weekend we ask ourselves the very serious question. Do we still have the rule of law in america. Do we still have the rule of the written universal truth.

The head of department homeland security alejandro may orcas admitted on fox news sunday that ten thousand to twelve thousand haitians have been released into the interior of the united states. He said it could even be higher. The number that are returned could even be higher what we do follow. The law is congress has passed that we know. That's not true. May orcas saying oh. We're following the law you're not. The secretary said the administration will make determinations whether they'll be returned to haiti based on our public health and public interest authorities. But it says here that twelve thousand have now been released into the interior of the united states and twelve thousand four hundred have been given a little certificate saying you gotta go see some immigration judge. You think they're gonna come back and do that. They're gonna come back and see their the. The judge for their hearing may orcas said on fox news. I wouldn't call this a flood. Statements like that does violence to the english language to say that twelve thousand haitians is not a flood you see if we were governed by the rule of law not the rule of man we were governed by the universal principles that if you break into a country. You will be deported quickly. This wouldn't even be a question.

He directed and implemented the doctor program to protect hundreds of thousands of dreamers and much more. His deputy secretary. He led the department Successful Unity of Effort Initiative to improve morale in an agency, which previously had the lowest morale of any large agency in the federal government.

Nations that New Yorkers was granting special access and special favors to wealthy db five investor visa applicants linked to influential Democrats. When the idea took a closer look at the visa applications for three powerful Chinese nationals in particular, they came to the conclusion that if may, orcas hadn't intervened, and I'm quoting the matter would Have been decided, different like and quit now, Mr President. This is something that we know is inappropriate. We know that this is something for which Mr May or kiss should be held accountable. We know that this is something for which he has not been held accountable, and here is what he did. He put his thumb on the scale, pressured his A. D. H as colleagues pressured his DHS colleagues to break their own rules and turned the law on its head. All because a few powerful friends asked him to do it. He pressured others for the benefit of some powerful friends, and it is all All there for everyone to read in the inspector general's report, And yet he was never held accountable. And yet here we are being asked to support his nomination to the president's Cabinet.

With these remarks, Mr President come before today to support the nomination of Pete Buddha Judge to be secretary of transportation. We all know the nominee is Mayor Pete, A man who basically came onto the national stage as a Midwest mayor who had lots of enthusiasm for making investments in America's future. So today we're considering His nomination to be secretary of transportation at a time when we need a lot of work done on transportation, and in my opinion, he's a young, energetic mayor who is going to help us usher in a new era of transportation. That means there's gonna be a lot of bipartisan dialogue about how we get there. But this job should not be underestimated in the importance that the transportation sector and the investments for the future need that is that our transportation system serves. Is the backbone of our economy, and when it's not doing well, the consequential impacts of that affect our economy. It affects how are businesses compete in a global economy.

Thank goodness I'm not many, many people. Because I find that once you take a breath and take a beat You can really put some things together. And so I started doing that yesterday I I literally wrote screeds yesterday. I mean, good good works and I will share them all in due time. Uh, but I start with Uh, this this list of 10. And it's not like I decided to put them in any specific order. It's just the way that it that it started. We're talking about what we've seen from the Trump rally. To the attack on the Capitol. The siege of the capital. I don't know what people are calling it. I really I really I've seen written somebody from ways. To the aftermath. And there are some things that have been going on here in Indiana and across the country that needs to be addressed. So we could all be on at least for us. This show the same page. On what has happened and we should be clear. I condemn it in every single way. None of those people who entered the capital speak for me. The the hundreds of thousands of people. Who thought there was an issue with the election. They're they're fine. Yes, it's okay to say you think there's an issue with the election. It's very okay to say doesn't make you a bad person. Just don't pay any attention to them. Don't don't. They're there to do one thing break the Republican Party. Gonna prove that throughout the day. Doesn't mean That's sticking your head in the sand is a valuable proposition. What happened to the capital was wrong. I'm gonna get into that. Let me get into my first five here. And I'm gonna break this down further on Tony Cats today at noon. Number one Congressman Jim Banks not incite a riot and the Democratic Party should stop saying it in Indianapolis media should stop saying it. You sound like crazy people. You want to challenge electoral votes? Maybe something you politically disagree with. It's not inciting a riot. Jim Banks is congressman from the Indiana Third Fort Wayne area welcomes insurrectionists to the capital. That's not what he did. There were people there from Indiana. He said. Hey, I represent you. How you doing? So the lie already being told here in Indianapolis proper, the state of Indiana, so gross, so ugly, so so incomplete. People are fine with it because it's it's a narrative. To say, Hey, there is a lawful path to challenge these electors. I see issues and by the way for at least Kong's bank, not in every state, but in in his state's. This is something I've talked to him about. He said, in specific states, actually not his state's in seven states. He's like, all right, there's there's there's something there. There's an issue there. And he decided that was worthy of a challenge. I argue Pennsylvania's absolutely worthy of a challenge. Never claimed fraud. I claim that the courts you served the Legislature which is something we shouldn't allow cause systems matter. I'm very consistent on them. And then people got mad at him because a political columnist in one of the papers up there, Fort Wayne Basically said he incited a riot on Facebook. He posted how that's wrong. And how dare you and then people like always attacking a journalist. It's not attacking a journalist. Someone wrote an opinion and he disagreed. You see, this is a great example of what it is they want in terms of the breaking pretend the last four years didn't exist. The only thing Trump really taught us how to fight. He taught people how to fight and stop not take it and what they wanted to Jim Banks just to take it punch in the face of punch in the face the punch the face. He doesn't have to the people claiming how dare you go after reporter just so wrong? So run! Stop being the Brian Stelter. Of Indiana. All right. Start calling you Who's your Stelter? Just so silly. Really and truly number two big news was made that the incoming attorney General Indiana, Todd Rokita, Put out a tweet. And the tweets said that he supports President Trump. I will always be for our president. And it's like a Okay. You always be for the part. I didn't think it was newsworthy. But it became newsworthy when he sent out an explanation of his tweet that he was doing an experiment to see if he would get suspended. On Twitter as well, like the president has the president been kicked off of Twitter? Now. I don't even think the tweet was newsworthy. But as the expression goes, if you're explaining you're losing So my advice to Tara Akita, who will be the attorney general of India, as of today, right? Anything. I guess That was the news that when the inaugurations happen, um don't do those things. Focus on Indiana. Right now. Just focus on Indiana. Focus on what makes Hoosier allies better. And we're good. I'm not mad at you. I think the story is ridiculous. But if you're explaining, if you have to send out a press release Alison by what you might wanna write this down, if you have to, If you have to send out the press release to explain what you said. You're already losing. It's like having to explain the joke. You ever have to explain the joke to your grandmother because there's a little bit off color. You know, a little blue?

"On 7 10 W. O R. Given by our pal Steve Roberts, the ABC News political analyst. I don't I don't know whether you know this is like the story that won't go away. I guess we just have to wait for Inauguration Day and then it's over. Is that how it works? No, he wouldn't come close to being over. Yeah, one part of one states of it will be over for me. But the president is consumed with grievance here and he cannot abide the notion that he lost. You just can't We've talked about Trump for years on this show, and he's not He's 74 years old. He's not going to change and everything follows through him. This is a man totally incapable, seeing the world and through Tow any other lens but his own grievance and his own consequence in his own ego. And so even though his own attorney general has said the election is fair, even though the director of cyber security and his own department Homeland Security Civics Fair Even though Republican governors in places like George is that it's fair, even though judges he him pointed to the federal bench have rejected his suits. He continues to say There's only one word for it and thats lie. He continues to lie to the American people, because ah Lai is a big word. It's an incendiary words. But lie means that you, you say an untruth knowing it's untrue. And he knows its own true and he keeps saying it and it's not going to go away on January 20th because he has a powerful hold over the Republican Party and the loyalties of his supporters. He's raised millions and millions of dollars. Feeding people. These lies about the election, and he's going to continue to be a major factor in Republican politics long after Joe Biden is president. That's very true, Steve, I think, and he may hold a Maga rally. Well, Biden is having his indoor driving inaugural, but my question for you is and Biden will be the president. We know this Um Does blended. You hear that? Mark that down? He said Hillary still retracted at nine o'clock. Well, so but Steve, Steve, Steve, I gotta ask you, though. Can you understand those of us who supported Trump? And we were just tired of that Washington establishment that you know so well. That did get us involved in all these global alliances that killed working class people in this country that got us into these wars. Trump up ended that with Biden or we could just going to go back to the establishment running things and telling us how we should live our lives. Can Biden just bring it right back to the Obama years? Look, I can understand the appeal of Donald Trump, and he He had insights into the mood of the American people that a lot of Washington pundits, including me, Missed and didn't understand and give him credit for being a shrewd of Andre, powerful politician who got himself elected president. In the face of all of the naysayers who said it could never happen, including people at some point, Don't said that, Ah lot of what he said to people is not true. He said. He was takes us one example. Michael, that all of these blue collar jobs. All of these industrial jobs were stolen because of trade deals and he was going to bring them back. That was never going to be to those jobs were lost because of changes in technology and international supply chains and he was never going to bring him back and he hasn't brought them back on, dear not coming back on. Everybody who has ever studied the issue knows it, so a lot of his grievances were not necessarily based on on accurate descriptions of the situation. But Biden when you say it's what is Biden gonna restore, But I think by on store is a sense of civility, a sense of decency, a sense of mutual trust. What in Washington, and, uh today under Trump. The hostility between the two parties is so profound. They don't even talk to each other, and this is a very divided country facing an enormous number of problems. And whether it's a dealing, creating a stimulus package toe help folks get through the enormous financial burdens of the of the pandemic, whether it's lowering drug prices and other issues facing the country. It's only one way to happen on one way, and that's true bipartisan cooperation, and I do think I think it's a small chance. But I think Joe Biden expect 36 years in the Senate. I think that's an advantage. I don't think that's a discipline. I think, having been part of the Senate for so long, having had relationships with Republicans across the aisle, Understanding that compromise is a noble idea, not a Uh, not a curse word. And by the way, he's going to get a lot of pressure from the left wing of this party not to compromise, either. Yes, that's a very Yeah, Absolutely. But I think there's a term of a possibility here that he could start building a sense of trust with that least some Republicans across the aisle and that I think it's a good thing. And if he restores that The American public in the American people who could benefit from it. Dave Roberts ever. The optimist are Buddy ABC News Point, Judge. Take care of yourself Stable talking.

The new plan and again, Biden actually is accused of doing that very thing. No one wanted to talk about that, because the damage Joe Biden's credibility had damaged him as a candidate in the media clearly covered this up. Wanna go back to your point, Mike, because I just want to say this. This is the uniformity that we're seeing here, and this is why we question this because it has pointed out. Patriot Act happened after nine left Like a month after September 11th everyone's freaked out about terrorism. So they passed the Patriot Act. They created all these departments department Homeland security, But what they also did is they extended emergency powers, which was supposed to be used in times of Terrorist attack. But now they're being used in the time of Cove it so much so that mayors can shut down. Restaurants can shut down. Jim's can shut down basically anything they want so long as they declare their own emergency. That's it. Keep Diego in. Phoenix has two types of emergency powers. Not even just one. The first one. She gets to declare no big deal. The second one, which is even more draconian than we've even seen. The City Council has to approve. Same thing that governor do see did he got to declare his own emergency in the state? Lawmakers can do something about it, but they chose not to because they knew they needed the money that was coming from the feds. So they choose not to do their act. And it led Ducey to say that masked requirements and compliance compliance being that key word. We're back to that word that from a Republican governor and Mike, we've been trashed a little bit because we've been taken on Ducey, but it's that's why, because he says words like compliance. Talks about the new normal Robin. That's that's the thing that's really freaky about this thing in the new normal is his power, his unlimited authority that he declared on his own and was given under the Under the Patriot Act. One of the rules in the ways of the Patriot acted, okay. I'm not knocking him for the Patriot Act. I'm knocking him for not letting this go. Letting this state of emergency go. But you always have to follow the money. How many times in your life have you heard Followed the money Have you said follow the money? The next wave. If Biden takes the White House that Heroes act, the Nancy Pelosi has been sitting on the trillions on top of trillions of dollars Heroes Act is going to go through if that goes through. You do see stands to make a lot of money here in Arizona, And once again he can spike the football and say, Look at all I've done during Cove it I have a balanced budget. Look at me all praise me. And that's what the city Phoenix to the city of Phoenix has all kinds of money sitting in the budget that they put in the General fund from the cares act, so they don't care if restaurants are struggling to open if employees are struggling to survive, because they don't actually care about the employees themselves. The on Lee care about the revenue. They only care about the tax revenue. And if the tax revenue can come from somewhere else, the federal government they don't actually care. We'll say it's about safety. They're lying to you. All they care about is money balanced budget to fund their own programs. It's a simple is that You would think that they have a little thought for the hand that feeds them in the hand that feeds them of the small business is the small business owners like Robin myself that paid into the state taxes that give them a lot of state tax revenue. That's the hand that feeds them. The problem is, there's a bigger hand that's feeding them right now, so they don't care about the normal hand. It feeds them, and that is where we're in a very, very, very bad position. Not good. We've got to. We've got to do better. How about the Maga marches over the weekend? Those things got violent and let me tell you something. This thing is going to get worse before they get better..
"department homeland security" Discussed on KQED Radio
"Then, I actually think on the whole that level of commitment to the issue of immigration. It really didn't didn't abate at any point in the last four years. I mean, if one thing, Khun B said Of the Trump administration is that this administration on the issue of immigration came in with a laser like focus and didn't really deviate at all. I mean the president. Sure he's been ranting and raving. But there were people in key positions at the Justice Department in the White House, the department Homeland security who were really advancing the agenda, sometimes without the broader public, even fully understanding the extent of it, John, can you just walk me through the highlights of what Trump has achieved? When it comes to immigration. It's been huge, and it's been a resounding success for the nativists. The White House has passed over the last four years over 400 executive actions on immigration. On pretty much every level of immigration policy. So you know the kind of big ticket stuff the administration has decimated the refugee resettlement program. I mean, decimated it brought it from, you know, a country that used to settle, you know about 80,000 people a year in the U. S to less than 7000. So far in the current fiscal year, they've completely Undone the asylum system at the border through a combination of measures, but most notably in the form of shunting 60,000 people into Mexico, where they're just stuck waiting. For asylum hearings that now because the pandemic will never happen. They have cut deals with governments in the region to try to actually outsource the responsibility of providing asylum to Central American governments rather than the US itself. They've chipped away at legal immigration in the form of green cards and visas. I mean, the list goes on and on, and it's going to be extremely hard to undo and to reconfigure. Why's that? Let's say, Let's say Joe Biden winds. Why is it hard to reconfigure and reverse that? For one thing, Just the sheer volume of things the Trump administration has done has made it difficult. They're just gonna be a lot of stuff for a new administration to undertake, but most specifically The Trump Administration got smarter over the last four years. You know, it began with all of the pageantry and high drama of executive orders. Those are relatively easy to undo. But over time the White House got more sophisticated and how it unveiled certain policies. So, for example, they started to move to rule changes. Regulations kind of layered rule changes across different government departments kind of CLA. Huge policy for this White House has been a thing called the public Charge Rule, which pretty much isn't just an assault on legal legal immigration in the U. S. It is actually a wholesale re imagining. Who is allowed to become a legal immigrant in the US, The public charge rule would use immigrants financial status to determine whether or not they qualify for green cars and eventually citizenship in 2017. How would Trump of wanted to do this? He would have wanted to pass an executive order signed it with a Sharpie kind of made a big show of it. But in fact, by the time this thing came out in 2019, in the form of Ah, regulation basically proposed by the department, Homeland Security, there were also three or four other Forms of this policy being pushed around different levels at the State Department, the Social Security Administration, housing and Urban Development, various presidential proclamation that also layered in different aspects of this policy. But why can't they be reversed? I think all of them, you know, rules and regulations are harder to undo, especially if they've been set in motion in the right way. Some of these things require notice and comment period. You know, things have to be taken under advisement. And what's also happened simultaneous to all of this is, of course, the president has named a vast number of judges to the appellate bench. So in the past in the early years of the Trump administration, you have federal judges at least putting the brakes on some of these policies. Now you don't even have that. And they've actually decimated the department's themselves that are supposed to be carrying out this work. One of the talking points I see all the time on social media in particular. Is that deportations were remained much higher during the Obama administration during the Trump administration is that simply because they're just far fewer people getting into the country in the first place? Yeah, to combat. It's a combination of things, and it's a complex and interesting question. I mean, for one thing because the Obama administration had priorities for who it went after who was going to arrest Why I was going to rest those people people with criminal records. People had recently arrived in the country as opposed to people who spent many years here on that families. There was more efficiency and built into the system. This has been by comparison, a kind of chaos. One of the first things the Trump Administration did. In 2017 wasn't eliminated priorities for who I was supposed to go after. And so if no one's a priority than everyone's a priority, which leads to a kind of chaos, and so what you saw in the early years of the Trump administration was arrests, Sword. Mom and specifically arrests of people who did not have criminal backgrounds. The number of people in ice detention shot up but the deportations themselves didn't you also had A major border boy major border crisis, and that meant that ice officers who ordinarily would be policing the interior suddenly had to go to the border on were tasked with dealing with families arriving in sickness island so that set them back a bit. You've also had more of an organized resistance to the Trump administration. Can you ever really did under Obama? So, for example, sanctuary jurisdictions, cities, municipalities, localities, states have banded together and refused to cooperate with federal immigration authorities. You didn't have that level of coordination during the Obama years. And actually, that accounts for a significant number of deportations. Because in effect, you know if, if a if a city or state is cooperating with federal immigration authorities, it makes it much easier for ice to arrest people. They just go tojail. These people are already in detention, and they just take them in to cut into ice custody. So there are all of these different things that have led to the deportation numbers being lower under Trump. So, John, how significant of a loss For Trump was the fight on DACA. Of course, it's hugely embarrassing to the administration, especially because they came into office. These guys, this is Jeff Sessions, who then was the attorney general, and Stephen Miller, the top White House counselor. All with the fantasy of ending Dhaka. And so here you have them. Basically, you know, starting in on one of the signature policies they wanted to undo and you know, they basically whiff after three years of it. I do think that the fate of dreamers remains very much in the balance. And so the reason why I hesitate to say it's a total loss for Trump is if if the intention was to inflict pain, and I think people in his administration who wanted to end AKA wanted to end doctor to send a message and to put this population back in legal limbo. And in that sense, they succeeded because this population is now very much waiting on pins and needles to see to see what happens with the new administration whether Congress can actually codify protections in law for them. You know. Importantly, after that Supreme Court ruling, DHHS came around and said, Look, we will continue to process the applications that had already been filed, but we will not accept new applications. The language of the Supreme Court ruling makes pretty clear that the government has to accept new applications. So even after that Supreme Court ruling, it was quite shocking. And I think pretty typical of where the department Homeland Security is now that the response from the administration.

"Changed since then? I actually think, on the whole that level of commitment to the issue of immigration It really didn't didn't abate at any point in the last four years. I mean, if one thing Khun B said of the Trump administration is that this administration on the issue of immigration came in with a laser like focus. And didn't really deviate at all. I mean the president. Sure he's been ranting and raving, but there were people in key positions at the Justice Department in the White House, the department Homeland security Who were really advancing the agenda. Sometimes without the broader public, even fully understanding the extent of it, John, can you just walk me through the highlights of what Trump has achieved? When it comes to immigration. It's been huge, and it's been a resounding success for the nativist. The White House has passed over the last four years over 400 executive actions on immigration. On pretty much every level of immigration policy. So you know the kind of big ticket stuff the administration has decimated the refugee resettlement program. I mean, decimated it brought it from, you know, a country that used to settle, you know about 80,000 people a year in the U. S to less than 7000. So far in the current fiscal year, they've completely Undone the asylum system at the border through a combination of measures, but most notably in the form of shunting 60,000 people into Mexico, where they're just stuck waiting. For asylum hearings that now because the pandemic will never happen, Um they have cut deals with governments in the region to try to actually outsource the responsibility of providing asylum to Central American governments rather than the US itself. They've chipped away at legal immigration in the form of green cards and visas. I mean, the list goes on and on, and it's going to be extremely hard to undo and to reconfigure. Why is that? Let's say, Let's say Joe Biden wins. Why is it hard to reconfigure and reverse that? For one thing, Just the sheer volume of things the Trump administration has done has made it difficult. There's just gonna be a lot of stuff for a new administration to undertake, but most specifically The Trump Administration got smarter over the last four years, it began with all of the pageantry and high drama of executive orders. Those are relatively easy to undo. But over time the White House got more sophisticated and how it unveiled certain policies. So, for example, they started to move to rule changes. Regulations kind of layered rule changes across different government departments kind of CLA. Huge policy for this White House has been a thing called the public Charge Rule, which pretty much isn't just an assault on legal legal immigration in the U. S. It is actually a wholesale re imagining. Of who is allowed to become a legal immigrant in the US, The public charge rule would use immigrants financial status to determine whether or not they qualify for green cards and eventually citizenship. You know in 2017. How would trump of wanted to do this? He would have wanted to pass an executive order signed it with a Sharpie kind of made a big show of it. But in fact, by the time this thing came out in 2019, in the form of Ah regulation basically proposed by the department calling security There were also three or four other forms of this policy being pushed through on different levels at the State Department, the Social Security Administration, housing and urban development. Various presidential proclamation that also layered in different aspects of this policy. But why can't they be reversed? I think all of them, you know, rules and regulations are harder to undo, especially if they've been set in motion in the right way. Some of these things require notice and comment period. You know, things have to be taken under advisement. And what's also happened simultaneous to all of this is, of course. The president has named a vast number of judges to the appellate bench. So in the past in the early years of the Trump administration, you have federal judges at least putting the brakes on some of these policies. Now you don't even have that. And they've actually decimated the department's themselves that are supposed to be carrying out this work. One of the talking points I see all the time on social media in particular. Is that deportations were remained much higher during the Obama administration during the Trump administration is that simply because they're just far fewer people getting into the country in the first place? Yeah, to comment. It's a combination of things and it's It's a complex and interesting question. I mean, for one thing. Because the Obama administration had priorities for who it went. After who was going to arrest Why was going to rest those people? People with criminal records? People had recently arrived in the country as opposed to people who spent many years here on that families. There was more efficiency and built into the system. This has been by comparison, a kind of chaos. One of the first things the Trump administration did. 2017 wasn't eliminated Priorities for who I was supposed to go after. And so if no one's a priority than everyone's a priority, which leads to a kind of chaos, and so what you saw in the early years of the Trump administration was arrests, Sword. Mom and specifically arrests of people who did not have criminal backgrounds. The number of people in ice detention shot up but the deportations themselves didn't you also had A major border boy major border crisis, and that meant that ice officers who ordinarily would be policing the interior suddenly had to go to the border on were tasked with dealing with families arriving and sickness island so that set them back a bit..

side still not a whole lot to worry about however it continues to be a major story worldwide I think that what I would say is we need to continue to be alert and aware it does have the possibility of becoming a pandemic aren't we meet regularly with the head of the FDA the head of the CDC Tony fatty who's head of infectious disease at the national institutes of health state department homeland security and quite frankly even now they need a White House chief of staff and the secretary of HHS and the number two at St for wearing a one the last briefing to have that sweet before we came home for this week it is very clear that the United States taking this seriously the China I have to check today our delegation was when I last report speaking with you are you know one of the provinces that the World Health Organization has yet to have access to turn we heard that two weeks ago they would lead a delegation in it as of Sunday the delegation had not been allowed in they were hoping to get there last night and there were still questions about whether the United States is going to be able to be part of that delegation they believed yesterday morning that they were going to allow it to be but I have to find out today if that indeed did happen I think when that the World Health Organization delegation gets to Turner is able to meet with their doctors is able to see things earned him more we will have a better sense about some of the questions about this virus one of the things that we don't know is we now of people who are since the manic in right now it appears that the death rate is about two percent but we know that a lot of children are not getting it does that mean they don't have it we don't know they could be getting it and they're totally asymptomatic and the virus isn't impacting them we don't know the number of people that have gotten a virus scanner a symptomatic so we don't have a good understanding of what the bass is but I think that the World Health Organization is working with our health institutes of every country trying to quarantine it where it is in trying to keep it from spreading well small numbers here congressman the corona virus has infected more than seventy three thousand people around the world mostly of course in mainland China death toll is one thousand eight hundred seventy three including five people outside mainland China several countries are sending flights for their citizens on board the diamond princess cruise ship quarantine in Japan the US has evacuated more than three hundred Americans from the ship fourteen of which have tested positive for the virus the bottom line Congress woman is this when the corona virus first became a story if you will there was not a whole lot of panic whatsoever however I think the numbers that were just discussing here have surpassed those awhile ago that were originally thought to come into play and that's the scary part no one is it last week and preteens everybody said it's very important that if it does come to the United States right now the people that have it for the money well everybody that's been identified as having it is in quarantine some place the largest they've identified five military installations around the country where you for instance the two planes that came from the passenger ship one's going to California whence gone to Texas that people not panic and I said Tony I think you're beyond that he said that people I forget exactly how he said that in the one thing that way but I said Tony is already beyond panic you the fear that's being spread by what everybody is saying is really serious you all need to go out and really talk to people about this virus but they don't what sort of scary how much they still don't know quite frankly the director of the hospital it was treating most of the patients in Europe we're here Sir can I believe our neurologist he was also the director died last night which people may not may or may not have seen five health care providers have died we really need to make sure everyone is thinking I'm very worried about his spiky which actually is in three parts one do we have what we need to take care of people here in the United States if it does if you do have a pandemic two one of the provinces in this is something we're going to have to fix long term ninety percent of our generic drugs are now meeting charming we have to bring that manufacturing back to this country so we are not dependent on a country like that that supply is gonna get interrupted report so are we going to have a shortage of medicine and we also know that we've got a shortage of medical supplies mascots and sterile sterile down to touch her one is saying that the doctors did say is that if you are a symptomatic and you're not on the plane were you worried about getting something you don't need to wear a mask it doesn't help and that you should keep the masses for if we know that the pandemic is here so we don't have the shortage of that could come down there but we're also seeing the economic impact in our in auto industry is very dependent on apart from that region and you've already seen Chrysler you have to interrupt its protection in your senior connect the Namik impact of all of this this is a scary thing though I want to say this to Steve the doctors still make this point and it's true the flu this year is still killing far more people and fifty percent of the people that should have gotten a flu shot haven't gotten all right well we have the on Congress woman on the political

So really what they they say. They want to do is they want to talk to journalists who actually witnessed what was going. Some I don't know if there's anything more insidious than that going on.

So while the president continues to make his case for his border wall. Well, one guy says, hey, let me Bill that sucker we do steel. We do the page road. We make our own concrete. So there's a lot of synergies that make our company a little more competitive. That's Tommy Fisher with Fisher industries, which is based in Tempe. When I first heard about this. I'm like somebody said, yeah, this this Fisher. And I thought to myself Fisher Price wants to build the border. That's good. It's gonna be plastic and there'll be a little built in kitchen fake. President saying eight billion dollars and he says he can save. He can he could spend a lot more money. If if he gets a chance his company gets a chance to build the wall, and it comes with a warranty by using all weathering steel instead of just regular carbon steel take the life of the barrier to seventy five years. What is this guy thinking, by the way, the government's going to save money doesn't this guy know that the government's job is to waste money? And he says he can build it for a lot less and it comes with a warranty. There's no way the government's ever going to go for that. The Trump administration course calculated eight billion and did not ask for this Fisher companies bid. But if someone needs an idea, and we have it you would almost be unpatriotic not to at least speak up and show. You can do. I think it is patriotic, you know, it's such an American tradition to just waste money. I think it's almost patriotic at this point, right? Yeah. They make their own steel and make their own concrete, and he says he can build anywhere that he's told to build. So we almost to guarantee the government will not get in contact with them.

"department homeland security" Discussed on 790 KABC
"Two two two five to two at the bottom of the hour. We're gonna talk to California assemblyman, Jim Patterson, Republican the twenty third district department homeland security grants temporary extension to California allowing states driver's license to be used to fly. Leeann you got yours? And again, it's something unique to California because we don't follow the rules, man. All right. To, you know, illegal immigrants so now to fly you have to have a federally given ID. And so you have to either have the one that's now federally approved or you have to have either a passport or a passport card. I have a passport cards. That means I'm not going to the DMV. I'm just gonna carry until your driver's license expires. And then they'll give me the real while you. Yeah. And you have to have the paperwork that goes with it to get the DMV when it expires and re no matter. Oh my God. I have to show the these particular things that they ask for to get that federal approved a regular cover drivers. I don't think they're offering those anymore. So everyone in the state has got to go to believe so. I believe so by twenty twenty I think it is. I think I'm pretty sure you do. Brian clay old attorney is that right? Is that you understand too. After hearing you guys talk. I'm not flying. Yeah. Exactly. We're at the house on my house and watching sports, Janet. Hey my God. So Brian I saw you on CNN yesterday in regards to this case by woman in a vegetative state for years who gave birth and I immediately said, please give me Brian. I gotta understand what's going on here. Yeah. Yeah. Mean, this is horrible. I'm here. It's a nursing facility in Phoenix. And they primarily handle younger kids and young adults. A lot of them are mentally incapacitated. In this case, the young woman could been there for at least eight years, she was in a vegetative state. And apparently a person that worked at the nursing care facility. It's called hacienda or visitor or could be somebody else. Could be a doctor. No, no pun intended. With you, drew. Who knows? You know? You have no idea somebody did. Somebody. Yeah. Somebody rapes somebody raped this woman who could who can't defend herself. And and she had a baby at the end of December. So it's it's a shocking or find stray drew real quick. I just learned this morning. This woman is in a vegetative state was moaning when the baby was delivered. She actually very great. Did it? I mean, he didn't give her they were not able to get they didn't give her any met any medication to help her deliver the BBC. So we telling me she could feel pain. We would. No, of course, not. Absolutely. Yeah. There's no doubt that they can feel something they can localize pain sometimes things like that. But but but Brian elevate understand this did they not know she was pregnant. Well, no, no. No, good question. How do you not know if you have a set of is or years? Anybody could cleaning ladies nurses, have to do checkups. But there are some women that say they give birth, and they didn't even know they were practically very obese people. But this is not that is a relatively thin girl when I saw. Yeah. I look I find it hard to believe. I mean, given the track record of hacienda. Let's set the record clear. This is a company that had a much below average rating the rating on a scale of one to five a one nor prior reports and investigations of sexual harassment by some of the workers they're commenting for example on a patient's genitalia. There was in fact years back. There was the CEO had a meeting with work with the employees es, and there was a report of sexual assault of a patient. What did he do instead of following the laws and mandated reporter calling DCFS? He told he told all the workers forget about it. Don't report it and it didn't happen. So this tells me that there was a culture. It was in place for many many years, and this woman may there there could have been other sexual assaults. This woman may have been sexually assaulted before. They had to have known, and this is a massive cover-up, Brian. So when did the family know that she was pregnant? Well, did they didn't know until five days after the baby was born. Getting crate IRO. What leeann they didn't look the until the media broke, this story family didn't even know is that possible? Do they not visit her during the nine months while she's in in palliative care? Well, that's a good question. I'm sure the family did. But but they were not made aware of the of the delivery of the baby. They can. See that her her her belly was pregnant and. Who knows with all the sheets and and. God did not tell her. They did not tell her family. Like, I'm sorry that this happened. They tried to hide it from her. And then they're like, oh, by the way, she just delivered a baby, right? They didn't even tell her until after the media the families. Dawn broke it. But to me one of the bigger issues in this in this horrible situation is is is that there should be an expansion of the criminal investigation. They shouldn't be just be focusing on who, you know, who's a rapist is, but they they have got to hold the C E O. However, they should be shut down CEO, the company everything. Read the what they need to be prosecuted, criminally. Yes, listen, g German criminal negligence for not safeguarding this woman. Wait, all of gotta take place. Absolutely. Well, oh my God. Ryan is disturbing story. Let let's also something I'm not really seeing disgust. And I'm not sure how to frame the conversation. But some of this will have to get into you know, what is a vegetative state. What it would this have experienced? And because we don't you don't it's hard to define. And the fact that people are in that state are amongst the most vulnerable in society in need, our deepest kinds of protections against these sorts of his treatments, and this is not the kind of treatment. And I'm I'm betting that you're going gonna find other stuff at this facility. You gotta you gotta look at you. Gotta look for you, drew. Yeah. A great point you make a great point because these are the most vulnerable people on the planet. This wasn't played for Friday Bryant. Well, listen, I'm going to expand your your zone of what you're gonna be looking into it. I know it will happen automatically. But you're going to start looking at what is their skin breakdown rate. How fast is the healing of the wounds that they develop in the beds of these facilities. How often are they getting urinary tract infections? Are the recurrent? Are they doing proper catheter care? I mean, this is just sort of routine care of patients in these vegetative kinds of states, which means how how much they're neglected right? And these are these are hard things to do under the best of circumstances. But if it's really something that sub-standard, you're going to see a lot of stuff in the medical records of patients around that time. Yeah. Yeah. No. It's it's a very good point. So has testing good done of all the males that how they gonna do that. They gotta get DNA from everybody. How's that going to work? They did. Yeah. There was a quarter issues to have all male employees of hacienda. Disability tested for their DNA chromosome testing. But that obviously needs to be expanded to any visitors. Got a there. Nice. Back about what nine months prior to the baby. Looking at McKinnon repair. Like a an air conditioning repair guy. You gotta you gotta be looking at an all that. But when we're real quick point Andrew you hit upon I mean, I prosecuted a lot of sexual assault cases in some of those have dealt with with younger kids who've had Syria like serious ADHD, some mentally retarded where they can't articulate, and they are the most that you're looking at the most vulnerable people to to be successful susceptible to being sexually sold. It my point being you should have that's related vigilance and supervision and security for for for the pieces to seventy five t shirts were in hacienda facility. And and and it's it's reprehensible for hacienda to not have had any example surveillance. Did you know that no surveillance existed at all facility? It's just to me. It's criminal. Are you are you are you? Doing this case or are you on it? No, no, no, not. No, not because not on this case because I'm wondering if they've they've it's very easy. You just reach out to people that do the Jayco reviews and the standards for nursing home facilities, and you measure it against the standards are very good. Most facilities are very good. They're held to a high standard is hard work. Do not let's not condemn an entire sort of important source of medical care here. So we know has there ever been a case? Like this before Ryan. Yeah there. Yeah. I I had a friend. There has been one I believe there was one in new New York, the New York Times article. There was a case like this in New York about eight years ago as well. They find the person. Yeah. What's that turn out to be? Yeah. I didn't. I didn't. I didn't. I didn't read the result of that. I just read that this had happened once before but just expendable tunnel. Could what you said drew in California. For example, we have what's called the welfare institutions code. It's law that exists statutory law that exists that talks about what you're talking about. Which is basically a patients Bill of rights who is in a nursing home, and it is very rigorous. And you've gotta follow a lot of protocol. These these private nursing care facilities. Don't California I used to defend nursing homes years years ago before I started representing plaintiffs, and you know, it's most facilities do pretty good job. But but the man when when when you don't things like this happen. I mean, it's it's it's it's terrible consequences when when it goes wrong, the other thing, you might see is patient on the perpetrator could be a patient. So. Doc into law. In harm's. Yeah. That's that's that's a great point. Because I just I did an interview snoring and post mentioned that could be exactly could be somebody else. And then I read one that said that. There were complaints a couple of years ago about you know, shot like what was it? The shower curtains being less open. It was almost like it almost on a lake men and women almost in the same shower. You know, I it it really sounds to me like through like the dig deeper, you did I think you were intimating. That's the worst. It's gonna get. Yeah. We're good saucy under facility. I think you're you're always going to find a culture that existed within that facility that that lent itself worth facilitated this type of horrific sexual assault. Anything unique about that facility that caused the deterioration? In other words, did it start is another kind of facility and all of a sudden, they found themselves taking care of a different kind of patient, and they didn't adjust properly or is there anything like that that we need to know. Another great question. I I have learned that this believe it or not brace yourself. Yeah. I know. I know I know don't don't don't take it out on the messenger. Fifty years. Do. They've been in business if the years so and they've been they've been teetering to the same type of teaching younger kids young adults a lot of them in vegetative states..
