The End of DACA?
"So if you're someone who is a dreamer right now who does not have daca. You can have daca right. Is that correct. Yeah i think like in the most basic of census right like that is probably the interpretation that most folks are walking away. And if you know you're an outsider. Meaning that you don't have or you're trying to essentially figure something out that might just be the simplest way to look at it but for the people who are in the process of applying for dhaka for the first time right they are seeing a lot of very specific questions that have quite just been answered right. Judge heynen though federal judge in the southern district of texas who has been essentially overseeing a variety of different cases on this subject as made no secret that he's not a fan of the daca program so people need to understand that first and foremost number two his ruling basically states that new applicants as you mentioned julio people who are in the process of applying for dhaka for the first time short of them being fully approved into the program will no longer be eligible for the program.

"Them. All of those need specialized equipment. Have invented the vaccine, but we need to manufacture. We need to distribute it. We need to then administer it. We need to persuade at least 50% of Americans and, frankly, the more the better. Take the vaccine and get those shots into people's bodies. All of that's going to take time. I think that will take at least another year before we get to a minimum of 50%. Or maybe a bit more Americans that have been inoculated. And meanwhile, the virus is still spreading. So maybe we'll hit that dead that landmark a bit earlier, but till the end of 2021, we're still gonna unfortunately have to live the way we're living. Wearing masks with intermittent business and school closures, and so on, And this is all before. But the potential wide spread contagion of the new variants. So unfortunately, you know, this is a serious situation. We're in. Let me ask you two questions about that one is, um e mean, you've kind of talked about. As you said, the seriousness of this Let me present you with potentially more optimistic scenario. If 15% are slightly more of the U. S has gotten this and those tend to be, I would guess. More working age adults. People who, like couldn't stop, you know, driving Busses or stocking shelves or, you know the things that they do that we keep on doing. Um And the people who get vaccinated first. Are the people most at risk, which are to say people over 80/70 over 60. Is that helpful that some of the most at risk people will be taken out of the pool by vaccination. And, yes, the virus may continue to spread, but among people for whom there is less risk. Of death or hospitalization. There. Two components. Your question. The first component is In our effort to reach this, the phenomenon known as herd immunity, and Justus a sidebar herd immunity is the idea that a population of people can be immune to an epidemic, even if not every individual within them is immune. Now, For example, if you vaccinate 96% of the population against measles and one of the 4% unvaccinated people gets measles. You don't get an epidemic of measles because that person doesn't have anyone to spread it to That 96% is the herd immunity threshold Now, Measles is the most infectious disease known. So that's why the threshold is very high for measles. You should have the intuition that the more infections the diseases. Maura the herd higher. The herd immunity threshold is and with the disease SARS cov two Covert 19. The so called are not the basically production number. The intrinsic communiqu ability of the disease is much lower than measles, but still high. So after number of calculations and making certain adjustments, Let's say at least 50% of people need to be acquire immunity in order to reach herd immunity for For SARS for stars cov too, But they can acquire it either, naturally because they got an infection and got immune or artificially because I got vaccinated. So you're right. Those things accumulate. Uh, you know, we're having like two parallel things happening. Some people are getting immunity because they're recover from infections. Others are being vaccinated that's adding up and we're building immunity. However. Reaching this herd immunity threshold on Lee means that we've taken the epidemiological wind out of the viruses sales. It doesn't mean that we've eradicated the virus. The virus is still there still going to infect non immune people. It's still gonna kill some of them. It just means that it Zepa Dem IQ forces know has been removed. Just like measles. Measles is is not gone. It's still cur occasionally causes some illnesses. So that's the first point And second point is that That the more we vaccinate actually, the better. And this is why Tony Fauci some of his statements lately have, I think been the way he's been speaking about this. He's been conflating. I mean, he obviously knows the difference. But he's been saying Americans we need to get 80% 90% 70% very high levels of vaccination, but what he's speaking about is that we need to get to that level before we can really Have a much more normal kind of experience. That level is even higher. Let's say then. The minimum herd immunity threshold that we you and I are just discussing right now. You're listening to innovation have been talking with Nicholas Chris Dhaka's He directs the human nature Labatt, Yale, and he's the author, most recently of Apollo's arrow, the profound and enduring impact of Corona virus on the way we live, We're gonna come back and continue this discussion in just a minute.

Trump tried to cancel doctor but the Supreme Court kept the program alive. Okay, So those are the executive actions. And then there's the Biden Bill. How ambitious is it? Uh, well. In the most dramatic step, Biden was to create a roadmap to citizenship for more than 10 million undocumented immigrants. This is the big immigration reform that some people have been clamoring for for decades. Guidance bill says an undocumented immigrant could become an American in eight years if they pass background checks, pay their taxes and complete a citizenship test. Also, Biden wants to allow Maura refugees into the US who are fleeing war and natural disasters. Lawmakers, as you point out, have been fighting over immigration reform for decades. So what kind of chance does this have of passing in Congress? Yeah, it's going to be a tough sell Noel among the immigration hawks in this tightly divided Congress. They're leery that Biden wants to dismantle all those tough border controls that Trump imposed. There's not much in here about border security. Biden wants his Homeland Security Department to expand surveillance technology as an alternative to those steel and concrete barriers. Here's Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies. They favor less immigration to the U. S. It's a radical departure from all previous amnesty plants because it has no enforcement in it, You know, so I actually think realistically. There's no way to send it could ever pass this. Okay? He wants less immigration. How are immigrant rights advocates responding to this? Well, they're downright giddy. I mean, yesterday they came in from the cold for four years. They bemoaned one trump anti immigrant policy after the next There were more than 400 of them and all, but it's a new day. Here's Grayson Martinez process. She's an undocumented dreamer herself and head of the group United We dream. This is the most progressive legalization bill in history.

Unity earlier, the president would do the White House every being sworn in and signed 17 executive orders and actions by keeping the promises. I made the American people a long way to go, many of them geared towards doing key policies and priorities of the Trump Administration. For example, he stopped construction of the border wall ordered officials to preserve Dhaka. Reversed the so called Muslim travel ban. President Biden also rejoined the Paris climate Agreement rejoined the World Health Organization killed the Keystone Pipeline and issued 100 Day masking Challenge. That's Fox's grip chickens and President Biden will sign 10 more orders today related to the covert crisis and when it comes to mask still require wearing one in airports and on some transportation, Lee planes and trains.

Biden signs orders reversing major Trump immigration policies
"Biden signed a flurry of executive orders tonight, including measures rolling back parts of the Trump Administration's immigration crackdown. We also got more details on an immigration bill that Biden hopes to get passed in Congress. NPR's Joel Rose covers immigration Hegel. Hey, Mary Louise, So biting made a lot of campaign promises to do with immigration. What specifically? Do the executive orders today address? Right? Well, they deliver on some of those promises for sure he signed an executive order. Lifting the travel ban on people from majority Muslim countries, which Biden had pledged during the campaign to do on day one. President Biden also signed a proclamation halting construction of the border wall on the southern border. And plans to roll back Trump's aggressive enforcement tactics in the interior of the U. S. And the Biden administration, also today sent a big, ambitious immigration overhaul bill to Congress. With so much happening in the country with Corona virus and other urgent emergencies. There was some question about whether the administration would make immigration a top priority right off the bat. And I think the answer we got today is yes, it's fair to say this is a U turn very much of your turn from the Trump administration, both in substance. It sounds like also in tone for sure. President Trump frequently talked about immigrants. As a burden and a threat. President Biden seemed to allude to that in his inauguration speech today when he said that quote native ism, fear and demonization have long torn us apart. When Biden and Harris talk about immigration. By contrast, they talk about restoring humanity to the system and treating immigrants as a central workers and valued community members. And even in this immigration bill, they want to replace the word alien in U. S immigration law with the word non citizen. So this is a big shift on immigration. And I think that's part of what the administration is trying to signal with this flurry of action right out of the gate, right? Okay, So let me turn you to the other piece of this. The immigration bill. Which, of course the Biden administration cannot do on its own. They need Congress to buy in as well. What is in this bill? Well, a long list of reforms that immigrant advocates have wanted to see for years. The headline Is. It would provide a pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants for most of those immigrants that would take eight years, but it could happen faster for some groups, including people who are enrolled in Dhaka. Which protects immigrants who are brought to the country illegally, as Children, also farm workers and immigrants who came here fleeing war and natural disasters in their native countries. One immigrant advocate called this the most progressive legalization bill in history. We should note that Congress has debated immigration reform for years for decades. Does this bill have a chance of passing now? Well, it's true that Democrats now control both the House and the Senate. Whether they can get this done is still a real question. Their Senate majority in particular is razor thin, and it is not clear how many Republicans, if any, they would get to sign on to this bill. I mean, we've already heard from some lawmakers who are rejecting this as quote mass amnesty, they argue it only encourage more illegal immigration. This legislation does not include a lot of what Republicans would want to see in a comprehensive overhaul bill. They would want more workplace enforcement, for example, to make sure Cos they're hiring legal workers. So it would not surprise me to see this bill eventually get scaled back to try to attract more bipartisan support. But it's interesting that the Biden administration is out there pushing forward on day one, despite pretty dismal record in recent history for immigration bills.

"What are you going to be watching for these first days? Right? Well, Jen Psaki mentioned a couple of those executive orders and actions that the president took. You know, on his first day in the Oval Office, fortifying Dhaka, the program that protects young people who are brought to the country illegally as Children. He has you mention he also ended the travel ban on people from majority Muslim countries. Signed a proclamation. Immediately halting construction of the border wall on the southern border on but very ambitious immigration bill is heading to Congress. As you said, I think there were some questions going into this that you know, with so many big problems facing the country, coronavirus political extremism. Would the Biden administration be able to focus on immigration right away is a top priority. And I think the answer we're seeing so far, at least, is yes. Until you know it's interesting cause remember during the campaign, he said he'd submit the bill in the 1st 100 days, right. That got way moved up and it was day one. I want to bring in Kelsey Snell, who of course, covers the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue at the Congress, where a lot of these issues they're going to be playing out and where we today watched the balance of power officially Shift. There was actually kind of a funny moment that I just want to note that we're going to hear a little bit of this is this is the moment where Kamila Harris is, is speaking in Les mis out the chair lays before the Senate to certificates of election for the state of Georgia. And a certificate of appointment to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of former Senator Kamila D. Harris of California, That is No vice President Khama Lady here is referring to herself as she, as she swears in that the two new Democrat, three new Democratic senators and the balance of power officially shifted. Kelsey Snell talk to us about what the Senate is gonna look like how Joe Biden is going to try to get his agenda through Congress. So God, it's going to be a tight, tight, tight majority. For Democrats. It's a 50 50 Senate. And Kamila Harris would be called in as vice president to break any tie, but to remind people that before you get to a 50 50 vote in the Senate on any legislation, there's a 60 vote procedural procedural hurdle. That's the filibuster we hear about, and it is not as technical as it seems, it's actually the most. Most significant hurdle to Joe Biden moving forward on his agenda. You know, Republicans want Democrats to agree to keep the filibuster in place. Todos actually forced them to work with them across the aisle to get any bill across. But when you talk about immigration when you talk about climate change when you talk about the coronavirus relief bill that Democrats say they need to get down immediately. Those are all fairly partisan things, if not extremely partisan things. And I thought it was really interesting when when she was pressed on the question of you know how the administration was going to handle these covert talks. In particular, she says that President Biden will be personally involved, which, I should say is a very big departure from President Trump, who did not get involved at all personally in any of the coronavirus relief packages. But they also said that they're not going to take any tools off the table. So that means that they're leaving open the possibility that while they would like to do things on a bipartisan way, they may try to take advantage of Senate rules that give them out. Give them opportunities to just go on along party lines. And that is when we'll start to see some really big fights on the two ends of Pennsylvania. I piece of breaking news little piece of breaking news that emerged even as the White House briefing was underway, which is that the Senate has now confirmed after Elaine's as director of national Intelligence. That's the first Cabinet level position. They held her confirmation hearings this week. She has now confirmed is the new Deanna. Um, What's the timeline on the others? Do we know Kelsey? Well, we know that there is an effort to move them quickly. But we also know that there is an impeachment trial coming up, and she was asked about this as well, You know, can can They move forward with this this aggressive agenda and getting all of these nominees through their confirmation process while doing an impeachment? She said. She's confident that the Senate can do both. But that will take some agreement. As with a lot of things the Senate operates on agreement from both parties. So it will yet to be seen how quickly they will get through any of this, Maura, you get the last word tonight point us into the night with words of wisdom, what you will be watching for in these next 24 hours. Well, next 24 hours and beyond. Whether Donald whether Joe Biden can it's gonna take a while to get used to that, too. Yes, Donald Trump, Right can whether Joe Biden can actually do what he wants to do on the Koven problem.

"It's one Grand day, let's talk a little bit about the immigration reform bill. Biden's plan. It's called the U. S. Citizenship Act of 2021. I was discussed this with the collar yesterday. Who said automatically grant citizenship for 11 million undocumented workers, and I said that doesn't sound accurate to me. I mean, I know that the Democrats took both Senate seats on a Georgia but Most Americans not gonna go for that. So here's what it is, at least in this form. This is pending legislation, not exactly high on my list of topics normally for the show, pending legislation on a local, state or federal level. Another wait until it is law before we really discuss it. The Bidens plan is to give 11 million undocumented immigrants of path a path to citizenship. I've known this woman for your she immigrated here from Poland. Krakow. Terrific woman. Name is Barbara and she would complain. Oh, my goodness. This is years ago Way pre Trump. About people who jump the line who just came here from, you know, essentially crossing the border, settling in getting jobs and essentially having all of the Uh, you know, privileges of American citizenship. Except they're not American citizens and used to drive her. Absolutely not. Should not. She would tell me, John, it took me nine years. Nine years, nine years to become a citizen here. Best thing that ever happened. And immigrants. They understand how great this country is. You and me born and raised here. You know, Generations back. Our people came. Where does he used to it? It's ours. Why is it ours? Because I've been told it's mine. While my country back and we actually do anything but immigrants actually do But let's set that aside for now, they understand what's going on. So Barbara Barbara was right. She waited in line nine years. Here's buying his plan. It's going to give qualifying immigrants temporary legal status and allow them to apply for green cards after five years if they meet certain requirements. Three years after that, they'll become eligible to apply for citizenship. So five and three is eight. So apparently the pathway is eight years long. At least the way I'm reading this and again, it says here, um Qualifying immigrants. I have no idea what that means. Devil's in the details there, and I just don't have the patient's toe dig for the details. It's proposed legislation. It's all up to Joe Manchin anyway. As far as deferred action for childhood arrivals. Dhaka Temporary protected status recipients and immigrant immigrant farm workers who meet certain requirements again. No elaboration here. Certain requirements would immediately be eligible for a green card applicants then must have been present in the U. S on January 1st to qualify under the proposal, so they're trying to stop a run on the border like that old T gram. Around, Uh, Taco Bell jingle. In reverse. S so they're trying to stop that. Remember what happened in the Reagan years? The immunity back then? I'm sorry. Amnesty back then for what was it three million? Brought a flood of another 11 million doesn't work. What's the what's the definition of insanity, doing the same thing again and expecting a different result? The bill would also add more technology to enhance security on the southern border Trump on Lee built about 452 miles of wall. He claimed that most of that, however, though, to be honest with you, 65 to 70% That was they replaced existing fencing there. And another aspect to Biden's bill. Proposed legislation will tackle the root causes of migration. I think this might be good money spent after bad, frankly. The bill would fund at least $4 billion. Inter agency plans that would include age for El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, tied to their efforts to reduce corruption. Good luck. Violence. Good luck in poverty. Good luck. The sense you were bribing them to control their own borders s so we shall see how it all works out again. It'll land on Joe Mansions desk.

And I said it wrong here because the number of Dhaka folks would not be 11 million. Right. It's it says hundreds of thousands. Okay, read that again. Read that line again. It's just think we were talking to me naturally about 11 million immigrants who are gonna get legal status. And then it says the bill also Would provide a shorter pathway for citizens to citizenship for hundreds of thousands of people with temporary protected status and beneficiaries of Dhaka. Were brought to us as Children. So that's two different groups in it. It is that is that is two different groups, and they're not 11 Million. Dr. Folks there, you know, there's some estimates that is between three and five million only on Lee about What 900,000 on the rolls? Because this is hundreds of thousands. Okay, so that that's probably talking about that those that are on the rolls for DACA. So is he talking about 11? Million illegals Enter here now Going Wiping the slate clean and saying you you're okay. Yeah, Or is he just reducing their parent really would time I want to make sure we got this right? Okay. The bill would also provide a shorter pathway to citizenship. They're okay. For hundreds of thousands of people. You go back to where it was talking about. The 11 million, though. Also like to see a pathway to citizenship for an estimated 11 million immigrants. Okay, who are in the country without legal status, So I wonder if that's what he's doing. If he's just reducing the amount of time that it takes to become a citizen. For those who are currently undocumented. That makes sense you have because because it says a pathway to citizenship here, So they're still saying he says it doesn't say he means citizenship. Yes, but they have a waiver once. Okay, forget it. You're not a legal right? Right? But instead of waiting 18 months for hearing, you might get that hearing in three months. No, I don't are you know when we started this years ago, this conversation I remember talking about a guy from Canada talking 15 years. You said Yeah, yeah, in the process does take too long.

New York judge orders restoration of DACA, opens program to new applicants
"For those fighting against President Trump's pushed in the deferred action for childhood arrivals or DACA program, A federal judge ruled the Trump Administration must start accepting new applications after years of trying to scrap that program. Currently about 650,000 people are enrolled in Dhaka, which allows certain young immigrants who were brought to the country illegally as Children. Illegally live and work without fear of deportation. The Department of Homeland Security responded to the decision, saying, quote the Department of Homeland Security. Holy disagrees with this decision by yet another activist judge acting from his own policy preferences. Judges. Latest decision similar to his earlier inaccurate ruling is clearly not sound law or logic. We will abide by this decision while we work with DOJ on next steps to appeal. Meanwhile, a spokesperson for President elect bite his transition team said quote For the second time, a court has ordered the administration to resume processing DR applications. It's time to do the right thing on day one. President elect Biden will insure dreamers and their families have the opportunity to live their lives free of fear and continue to contribute to our country. Doctor program was started in 2012 when President elect Biden was vice president. So what does this mean for the future of those dreamers, the DACA program and the ongoing legal efforts to eliminate it. Joining us tonight to discuss those issues is c'mon necessary. Immigration and criminal attorney as well as an ice and customs specialist. Mr Necessary. Thank you so much for joining us tonight. Thank you for having me So first Friday's ruling does open the program to new DACA applicants for the first time since 2017 approximately how many people could now benefit from this Close to half a million is the projected number. I think the last tally was about almost 400,000 and is probably even more than that of people who haven't come forward at this is this is a great victory for people who are advocates of Dhaka. Alright and explain to us really, What is Dhaka and what does it do? And gives the opportunity to people who are brought here as Children, and they're undocumented. Here in the United States. They have a clean record. They passed the background checks there, either in school or they have completed school and they're of the sound age to now, go and join the work force or go to college, and this allows them to continue their education or to start a business or go to work. Legally here in the United States, and it provides checks on these people every two years to make sure they're complying with the terms of the with DACA. Okay, and you said close to half a million people could be impacted, maybe more, because maybe people that just had, you know, have not yet come forward would have all of these potential DACA applicants been doing since that program was suspended. Three years ago. And here lies up. Almost. You have some people who've had Dhaka and they've been renewing it. But for those people who haven't been able to get the benefits of doctor they've been unfortunately having to work under the table. Some of them have worked jobs. A lot of them have been unemployed. And there are some that haven't even been able to finish their education if they wanted to apply for financial aid, go to college because they can't get a social security number to go forward with the rest of their lives and You were brought here is 345 years old and they were never gave. You haven't been able to move forward. So one of them have been just hiding in the shadows and waiting to see what happens. And let's look at this from the other side, though. So for people who say you know what these families needed to come here and do it the legal way. What is your response to that? The kids didn't choose to come here illegally. You know, the parents brought them here. The Children are here. They're people that are Dr recipients that are probably in your community that in your friends, your circle of friends, your circle of business. And you have no idea where Dr recipients. There are people who have been here since two years old. You've got to high school with your Children have been high school with you even and you won't even know that they're doctor recipient. So you can't look at someone and tell whether or not they're undocumented out. This is an opportunity for people to be here. Their work, go to school and contribute to the economy contribute to society. And I don't see anything wrong with that. If people are gonna be here and they want to contribute and do better and make themselves better Why we? Why can't we tell them know? Who are we to tell him now? All right, And we did here. I I read that statement from the Department of Homeland Security. We know, spokesman Chase. Jennings criticized the judge's ruling. We know some states are asking that the program be declared unlawful They wanted terminated, so it's very possible that this is not the end of the story with doctor right? It is very possible but for me personally, I think unlikely. I mean, look, I've spoken to a lot of Department of Homeland Security attorneys officers with U. S. C. S attorneys that work in immigration court. Most everybody wants doctor here because it's it's amazing solution. That's not necessarily permanent sun a pathway to citizenship, but it closes out a lot of cases and loose ends for a lot of people. The people who don't want doctor here are just people who are anti immigration policy to begin with. Having Dhaka is such a positive has such a positive effect on society and for people that are here, undocumented that for the majority of people wanted here. All right, Mr some monastery, Immigration and criminal Attorney. Thank you so much for joining us and sharing your knowledge with us tonight. Thank you
Judge rules Wolf did not have authority to restrict DACA
"Acting homeland security secretary and trump appointee chad. Wolf doesn't matter and that's not my opinion. It's actually the law. A us district court.

That for make believe phobia wants to aim at dhaka in july after the supreme court ruled that the trump administration's decision to wind down the program until nineteen was unconstitutional. He counteracted the decision by barring new dock. Applications and cutting the length of grants and work permits from one year. To to the judge in saturday's case will hold conferences to work out the details of his ruling but the effect seems to be that wolf's move to limit daca are void so daca is no longer suspended for new applications or a two year renewals wolf's experience doing work that was actually not real. We'll prepare him for whatever corporate job he gets after his time. In the trump administration
Federal judge says new DACA rules are invalid
"Ah, federal judge in New York has dealt another blow to the Trump administration's efforts to end DACA deferred action for childhood arrivals. That's the program that protects immigrants who were brought to the U. S illegally as Children. The judge ruled yesterday that acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf was not lawfully serving in that job when he suspended new applications for DACA and that is once again raising the hopes of tens of thousands of young immigrants who are potentially eligible for the program. NPR's Joel Rose covers immigration and he is with us now. Jill welcome. Thanks for joining us. Sure, So didn't the Supreme Court already weigh in on this Well. The Supreme Court did rule in June when it blocked the Trump administration's effort to end DACA. That was seen as a victory not only for the roughly 640,000 young immigrants who already have Dr protections, but also potentially for tens of thousands more who are eligible, but have never had a chance to apply. Before the Trump administration moved to kill the program. A federal court in Maryland also said that the administration must start accepting new applications, but that did not happen. Instead, the acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf, issued a memo in July. Saying he had quote serious policy concerns about DACA and suspending new applications while he reconsidered its future. So what does this latest court ruling say? Well, Judge Nicholas Garr AFIS found that Wolf was not lawfully appointed to the job of acting secretary of Homeland Security, basically, The DHS did not follow its own rules of succession, and this is not the first judge to reach a similar conclusion. In addition, the Government Accountability Office said back in August that both Wolf and his number two at DHS were improperly appointed. So this is creating potentially serious legal vulnerabilities for the policies that they have enacted, including now this document, So the big question then becomes what does this mean for DACA recipients? Well lawyers for the doctor recipients and he would be Dr recipients in this case are definitely claiming victory Earlier today, I talked to Maria Elena in copy A the director of the National Immigration Law Center, which has been one of the leading groups in the fight to defend Dhaka. This decision Couple with historic victory of President elect Biden means that young immigrants can now breathe a sigh of relief and they can focus once again are rebuilding their lives with their loved ones here in the country where they belong, like this is their home. Has the Trump administration responded, And if so, what have they had to say? Well in this case and others. The administration has argued that Wolf was lawfully appointed, so I think it's likely that there will be an appeal even if they ultimately lose on appeal, though it's hard to see the administration rushing to begin accepting new top new doctor applications. More likely we could see young immigrants who want to apply will have to wait until the Biden administration takes office next year. It's expected to reinstate Daka in full as soon as he takes office, possibly even on day one. And before we let you go, Joel, why has the Trump administration relied so heavily on acting appointees like Chad Wolf? They've been Warned repeatedly that this is not an appropriate practice and now judges. They're saying that's actually illegal well. President Trump has said that he likes acting appointments because it gives him more flexibility. Critics say the administration that was openly flouted the Federal Vacancies Reform Act and other succession rules in order to appoint people who would have had a difficult time getting confirmed by the Senate. There did not seem to be that much of a penalty for this practice until now, But we may be seeing that this strategy maybe does have some long term drawbacks. After all, that is NPR's Joel Rose.

Her parents left her in their native ecuador in the care of family members while they emigrated to new york city the plan was they would work for one year to save up enough money to pay off their debt and then they'd come home but barely making ends meet. One year turned into four so they decided to have god led join them in their new home. She was just about to five years old growing up away from her. Parents would ever permanent effect on carla and shape her and her work to this very day therapist. After therapist told me i had attachment issues and that my mental illness related to my childhood. God is a dhaka recipient and at least on paper. She's the realization of the american dream for immigrant parents. She went to harvard now. She's pursuing a phd at yale but the constant pressure to be the perfect high-achieving hardworking child has oftentimes been a mental health nightmare. For god. Laugh once you hear your parents come home and their body is wrecked at the end of the day. And you know they've earned like little very little money and they look at you and they say i do this for you. You can't forget that for the rest of your life and you're bound to them. As down with god led to talk about intergenerational wounds mental health in the latino community and how we can take care of each other. God-like gordon hobie abby. Sense your to latino say thank you for having me. So you're writing this book as an immigrant with no you know essentially legal status. Was it difficult to harness your feelings while you were writing this book. Yeah there's just ways of describing my anger about the notions of citizenship and deserving this and privilege one of the original introductions was this fantasy that i've had since i was a little girl which was A hostage situation at a bank and all of the hostages were way blond. Children women cops firefighters people who are deemed innocent and heroes. And i walk into the bank and i'm undocumented and somehow even though i have no idea how to hold a gun i'm able to like russell begun out of the terrorist hands. Shoot the terrorist in the knees or somewhere. That's like not gonna kill him. Because i want to kill him in the hostages. Go out like they're all freed. And i'm wearing a slip because i also wanna look beautiful right which is also like a reference to two thousand six immigration marches where we all had to wear way. Then i walk out. And it's like swat teams are there and like everyone's there and of course isis there to arrest me because i'm the foreigner in my hair's in the breeze and everyone takes my photo and i'm like on the front cover of every national newspaper and i get my citizenship. That's that was my fantasy. Ever since i was a kid. That's how i got my citizenship. God it's like you have to do extraordinary acts of the hollywood magic and then you are rewarded your citizenship. I guess i'm stuck on the fact that you were having fantasies like this as a child. And i just wanna take a moment for people to think about that while other little kids are thinking about who knows there are undocumented children in this country who dream and have fantasies about somehow some miraculous situation that gives them the thing that your child takes for granted every day it's really burdensome to have to perform goodness and innocence and perfection And i know that as a kid who are as a person now is a thirty year old woman who is on the outside on paper such a poster child for the american dream. And i've never performed it. But it's so imposed on me and i described my own complex feelings about it in the buck. Like i really drank the kool aid of sociability. Very early on when i was a child and became fixated on accomplishment and success and being able to win day retire. My parents even now Am fully aware and very self aware of the intergenerational trauma issues in our community and in my own family and everything. But i still don't think i i know who i am as a person outside of the way. My personal accomplishments can result in the alleviation of pain for my parents and the documented community. If you were to take that away from me. I don't know who i am as a person and i think that's true for a lot of children of immigrants who have become successful.

A conversation on why you should vote
"Welcome back to another episode of that money though friends we have just a few weeks left before the general election it's happening November third. The day is finally here and we WANNA. Talk about the election this episode because many states are going to be having their deadlines for which which you can register usually happening in October depending on your states look that up and we thought it'd be important to visit with all of you why it's so important to vote. We actually asked them of our listeners what are the three reasons that you're voting and? They said in. His off. Yes. So from the Angelo from the Geek Life, we all knew America had major issues but these four issues have shown us how bad things could really be. He's four years. Yeah. A number to worry about a month away from being still being society e and number three I'm O'Brien in. America. And I grew up in fear and don't want my kids to do. So those reasons we love him. Thank you. and. Then we had the folks from lat. Next point of view podcast. They said that healthcare is the number one issue because less people in the US have access to healthcare, which is a big deal when you're experiencing global pandemic number two, the economy, and then number three `immigration is that these are the three reasons for black next point of view. All right. So we got Joe, Sparkman, who said number one to dump trump Helje number to fight racism and number three fight sexism Mcginn. grazes. And then we had one more and lease said healthcare and immigration for sure. So I mean, there's so many reasons to vote for this election. We have a huge opportunity coming up to course correct the past four years but rather than focusing on us whoever is trump and who by the way we've decided on a shelley and mutually decided actually decided but I agree we're gonNA retire putting trump in the trash can there's just too many trump's there. So we don't have to do that here. There's Lore we're not doing it. WOULDA yeah. He's already there. So if you're. Even, you're no longer allowed to put trump in there because he's there's too many of them in there any who so we're going to focus not on that but instead like what are we voting for? It's not just against trump, but there's plenty of things to vote for. So entertain that why are you gonNa vote this November So. Many reasons and I mean ultimately what I want most is for everyone to live there moth antic fulfilling and healthy lives and I think in order for us to be able to do that, we need to have living wages we need to be able to live where we want without fear. We need to have equal access to education and opportunities, and we need to have access to safe in green communities and environments. Amen, I mean all that can go deeper into a few things and I know Brenda you'll share some with us, but I think I vote because environmental justice and Climate Change I. Think are one of the most urgent issues of our generation and trump has shown us that they do not care about the trump administration says that it did not care about that they recently rolled. Back Environmental Procedural protections under the Environmental Policy Act. So basically, you can build your highways, your pipelines and power plants without consideration of a lot of the harmful effects that they can cause on our communities and environmentally, and also our communities, and you know it's not a surprise that most of the communities that are affected by these types of this construction are Brown and black communities. That's so true. So and then along with that I'm also voting because I care about black lives and I care about criminal justice reform, and again, the trump administration has shown this time and time again that they're willing to put the economy before human lives are willing to protect professor percents. Supremacy and that's Discussed the Americans and we've seen that in how we handled pandemic that he literally cared more about you know the economy than human lives especially. Brown. Black lives we've seen how eases uses platform twitter and other social media insight, right wing violence, and that's been really scary for for me to release it lane actual literal. You know the young man is a shit that shot people and what we've known for a long time is that we really need to re imagine how our criminal justice system works and we know that the trump administration has does not is not putting that as a priority and I know that a lot of people will say. For Sure Joe Biden did help author the crime bill and Nineteen ninety-four. But I believe I believe in the power of change and I believe from what I've seen with from Biden including Kamala that they're willing to course correct and they definitely care more about reimagining and change criminal justice system than than trump does that's one hundred percent true. Those are excellent reasons. One hundred percent concur with that. How about you? Brenda, what are the? What are a few reasons I know there are so many reasons but what if you want to call out for listeners? So many definitely underscore everything that you said, but I think it's good for everyone to remember that the president can do so much including appointing, supreme, court justices, and other federal federal federal judges. So a good reason to vote is the courts you maybe don't like Biden. Harris don't even think about them just think about what's at stake. So the president of the United States gets to appoint judges, and if we remember there's been lots of Supreme Court battles from Dhaka from ACA to reproductive and lgbtq rights in this court the Supreme Court is all over the place that he they're mostly conservative. got to a point to super right wing horrible people including Justice Cavanaugh a rapist, and also eight RPG is eighty seven years old and she's battled cancer multiple times. So it's very likely that whoever wins in November they're to be able to appoint another Supreme Court justice and what's at stake we Really can't afford that.
Bobby Mackey's Music World
"Wilder Kentucky is a town of about three thousand people along the state's northern border. It's small very small, less than four square miles much of it is wooded. One might not expect at town of this size to have a nightclub, but it does. In, one thousand nine, hundred, seventy, eight, former farm and railroad worker named. Bobby mackey open to Honky Tonk bar off Kentucky route nine, the building it shows had a long history before mackey took ownership of it. Local legends says that in the past it was both a speakeasy and to slaughterhouse on top of being a hotbed for. Satanism. Today, it's rumored to play host to kind of spirits from full body apparitions, demonic portal's. Bobby. Mackie's checkered past and spectral present have the title of the. Most haunted nightclub in America. Sharon didn't like working on the desolate strip of road that led to Bobby. Mackie's she wanted to be closer to Cincinnati where there were always people around things got too quiet here. The silence left too much space for her own thoughts after the last song played on the Jukebox in the patrons had finally left. She mopped the floors wipe down countertops. The windows would shake slightly but she'd been told not to pay attention to that the regular joke that it was some vengeful spirit. Sharon suspected the cause was far more mundane cheap glass and poor construction Sharon unplug the jukebox took one last look around the place. It had never shined like the Chrysler building, but it looked clean again. She went through a small door in the back which barely clear head and up a small staircase to the tiny apartment above the bar she called home. Living and working in the same place took its toll. She had nights where she dreamt that she was trapped like puzzle winter. Tower. The whole world could change around her and she'd be none the wiser locked up above. In the light of day, those dreams seemed more than a little dramatic at night. However, they almost felt prophetic. This building held whatever pieces of herself she'd sewn together. If she ever dared leave, they would Holland raffle long strands pulling her into the strange dark well in the basement, a relic of one of the bars many other lives. As she claimed the steps. She. Saw someone waiting at the top for her. It was a woman wearing a faded dress. The intruders swayed on the step her hands clasped around her throat. Sharon paused and yelled at this area was off limits. The woman held Sharon's is and mauled two words. L. ME. Suddenly she sprinted down the stairs Sharon brace tourself expecting to be bowled over. But just before they made contact but women disappeared into thin air. Wave of nausea overwhelmed. Sharon. It was hard to describe exactly what had happened. She had built something hut pass through her body. She suddenly realized she'd never heard any footsteps even as the woman was charging at her. She reminded herself that she was tired. It had been a long night of tending to customers. She was probably having a waking nightmare. Sharing continued up the steps. nauseous. started to dissipate the heat was long-on. Sharon entered the cramped quarters she called home. Then sat down her small vintage chair it had come with the place in certainly wasn't her style, but she may do. After a while the familiarity was comforting. She untied her shoes. Let her body relax for the first time in days. Sharon's head felt heavy she didn't want to move. She let her eyes fall shut telling herself that she was just taking a quick power nap. She'd go to bed soon. She woke to the feeling of serrated metal teeth pressing into her neck. Sharon's body jerked involuntarily the blade dug into her skin. She screamed knowing that no, one would hear her. There was only highway and the river beside the nightclub. She was alone. Horizon. Went. As, adjusted Dhaka's. There was a man leering over her. His hand shook with the weight of the saw in his hand. In. The haze of retired mind she wondered how he entered when everything was locked up tight for the night. She told him that there was a safe downstairs, but it was empty. He didn't want money. The manse bat on the floor told her he was there to help her. Take care of things.
Supreme Court Issues Key Rulings on Trump's Finances
"On the final day of its term, the Supreme Court issued two highly anticipated rulings involving president trump's financial records. One decision clears the way for Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance to potentially view the president's taxes. The other was a mixed decision involving congressional efforts to obtain the president's personal financial documents both were sent back to lower courts for further consideration. Joining me now with more details is our legal affairs reporter Brent Kendall. So rent. The court rejected the president's efforts to block New York subpoena seeking his tax records, but issued a mixed ruling in a related case involving subpoenas from House Democrats. Can you tell us more about these rulings? And why in the congressional case? It was a mixed ruling. On the congressional case we'll start there that the court made pretty clear that it was not at all satisfied with either president trump's position. which the court said would really neuter Congress and make it harder for the legislative branch to do investigation while also being equally dissatisfied with Congress's position here and said look. Lawmakers you're under the belief that you can just get almost anything you want under the Sun, and the the you know, the president here is different. This is about his personal papers, and we really do need to give more scrutiny here to make sure that these requests are targeted and limited and these. Don't harass the president or become a really burdensome on him in some ways that case ended up as kind of a draw, and we will have significant further lower proceedings, and it's. It's hard to know at this point at the end of the day whether Congress is going to get. Any some all of these records that it is seeking the one thing we do know. It's extremely unlikely that they're going to get any of them before the election in November The vans case with a lot clearer and a lot. More of a straight forward and fairly sweeping loss for the president who argued that he was absolutely immune from having his financial information, disclosed or turned over to state prosecutors Wyle. He was in office, and the court flatly rejected that claim and basically sided with newer prosecutors and all their basic. That case isn't completely resolved. either. The president still potentially has more arguments. He can make against the subpoenas which he will certainly try to do in the lower courts, but it did remove a big roadblock for prosecutors in Manhattan who are examining whether President, trump or people close to him violated any state record keeping laws. So these separate cases, both came down and seven to two votes, and the president's appointees neal gorsuch and bright cavanaugh were in the majority. What do you make of that breakdown? While I mean it's a pretty remarkable thing and most of the big cases here right at the end of the term, the chief justice avoided five four rulings, and so for example we had some big religious freedom cases that were issued on Wednesday and have been the kinds of cases in the past. We're liberal justices, all descended and they're. The just got to the Liberals to join with the Conservatives, and what is was a pair of fairly conservative rulings in favor of religious institutions, and then flipping things around today we had the chief justice in the four liberal justices, and the chief was also bring along justices, neal gorsuch and Brett Cavanaugh, who are both trump appointees and to the majority in both of these rulings, those two didn't agree on all the same reasoning, but joined the outcomes. We ended up out of the nine justices with only two dissenters justices clarence. Thomas Samuel Alito. Tell us more about what happens next. For these two cases, what questions are now left for the lower courts? especially as we're looking ahead to the November election, even if these issues won't be resolved by then. There are a lot more issues for the lower courts in the congressional cases, basically because the Supreme Court crafted a whole new set of standards, the judges should now look out for these kinds of disputes. I mean the disputes. Themselves are pretty rare, normally congress and the White House work out their differences when Congress wants to have people testify when they want information. But now the court is basically said you lower chords take these new standards. We've articulated that we think will provide some protections to the president as well as some protections to Congress and sort out who's got the better argument here. That's going to take time. The New York case may take a little less time. The president still has some arguments available to him to contest the criminal subpoena here to his accountant's but they're more straightforward at. That courts can deal with more quickly, but even there it's going to take time, and even if he loses and the accountants turnover this information to Manhattan prosecutors. This comes in the context of a secret grand jury proceeding, and it will be many months, if ever, before details of of what prosecutors learn would become public. And the president quickly responded to these rulings on twitter. We are hearing responses. Continue to roll in. Tell me a little bit about your impressions of what he's been saying well, the president has been frustrated with a Supreme Court on several of its rulings, including one day invalidated his cancellation of the Dhaka and program and right after the ruling came out today, and he expressed clear frustration on twitter that this case would continue and express his views that this is sort of a political partisan prosecution that's designed to harass him, and he said that it was not fair to him or his administration. While the president was frustrated with the rulings today. Sivan's in New York. The prosecutor who is leading this investigation was thrilled and said this was a day really where the Supreme Court affirmed the rule of law that is applied to the president, just like everybody else. And he said now his team would get back to doing the business that had been doing of investigating this case and proceeding as it had planned to proceed, while also knowing they're still future battles ahead against president trump and his lawyers as this probe continues. France it's been a busy few weeks as supreme. Court now heads into its recess. Any final thoughts that you're leaving with well. It was a really big momentous term, even though the court ended up hearing less cases than it had planned because of corona virus, but we had these major rulings today on presidential power. We've had blockbuster rulings on religious freedom on gay rights in the workplace on the DACA immigration case. A lot at the court has tackled, and so it will take at at least a little bit of a breather now while we all sort out what's on the horizon. Wall Street Journal. Legal, affairs reporter Brent Kendall Brent thank you so much for joining me sure. Thank thank you.

"Today we had the honor to talk to Nana Xanthi. She is an attorney and the executive director of the Black Alliance for justice immigration or. She's also the founder of the Community Legal Clinic and Transform Justice Center in legal these workshops as well as the founder of Justice Warriors Black Lives I. Hope you enjoy this conversation. Nana how are you today? I am well well, as can be expected in during these times and hoping you're well as well you know I am well despite everything, but one of the reasons that I'm grateful is because of the great work that women like you do in this country so excited to talk about the Black Alliance for just immigration, which is one of the organizations that the BG and wonder me a network which produces the BG podcast has been encouraging our audiences to support, so thank you. These organizations are critical in times like this. Thank you so very much? We appreciate that support and the support that we've gotten from black folks all over the globe. Appreciate it. Tell us a little bit more about the Black Alliance for just immigration, and what brought you to the organization? So the black lines for just immigration is a national black lead Immigration Rights Human Rights Racial Justice Organization. We are the largest of our kind in the United States. We educate we advocate. We organized on behalf of the. The roughly ten million Black Refugee and immigrant families in this country as well as black folks who are trying to come into the country, whether it be permanently or temporarily, and those who are seeking asylum. We have our headquarters in New York, but we also have offices in DC. Miami Atlanta Los Angeles and Oakland and we have staff in Houston, and in Minneapolis, so we pretty much are all over the place as well as doing work on the. Episode of the border in Mexico, at the northern border with Tijuana, and also we've been doing some work the southern border of Mexico in Chula where you have black asylum seekers coming to the United States through Mexico. In that way and the work that we do is national in many cases in terms of policy, and you know we've been very busy in that regard, especially in with this administration, we also do national work with respect to racial justice our. Former executive director open committee was one of the big three that started black lives matter, and so by has been involved in black lives matter since the beginning and we do that work, and then we also do local work regional work. I'm both on the policy side, but as well as more, and with even more vigor on the organizing side to make sure that we are pushing for racial. Economic and social justice with an right alongside our multigenerational African American siblings. So much work, such powerful work. As. You said you've been very busy with this administration echo, they're just keeping everyone busy with their foolishness, but I definitely do a suit top about Daca so for our listeners, who may not be familiar Dhaka's stands for deferred action for childhood arrivals and the Supreme. Court decision around Dhaka now allows immigrants who ever see Daca status sometimes referred to as dreamers so if you seen the Hashtag is sandwiched dreamers. That's what that means. It allows them. them to stay in the country safely without a threat of deportation, but one the things that we've been really seeing missing from mainstream conversation over Daca was that it also impacts not Hispanic and Latino communities that there are black and brown communities impacted by this as well other black communities that are impacted by this as well. So, what was your reaction when you hurt the decision? And what are our next steps in the Dreamer, movement so? It is really important in think I really WanNa, thank you for lifting up the fact that yes, there are dreamers who are not Brown folks. That are not Latin next folks. That are not black right that we have black Latino next folks as well as black dreamers from the continent of Africa from the Caribbean from Europe right we think about. Twenty, one savage right and how this came up? And he actually falls in the category that is equally as important that we need to advocate for a person who isn't a Dhaka recipient, but who happens to be undocumented, and obviously we're looking for permanent protections, not just for Dr Recipients because everyone. Coming to this country is dreaming. No one's coming to this country to be a nightmare. Faces are looking at the Supreme Court decision. I also happen to be an attorney of twenty six years. Doing movement work is it's a temporary relief. It is not the permanent protection that we want our people to have and that our people need to have in order to thrive, basically what the Supreme Court said is that the way that the administration got rid of Dhaka? Had No basis. They got rid of it that they have to have a reason. They have to show that they've thought about everything before. They come to that conclusion and they did not. And so, what does that mean? It means that just like the Muslim ban if you remember, the court ruled against the Supreme Court ruled against the administration on the Muslim ban, and said he pointed out what was wrong and. And so they just instituted a new Muslim bad adjusting themselves to what the court had pointed out, and that Muslim ban remains not struck down,

Supreme Court rules Trump administration improperly ended program for "Dreamers"
"That's the sound of people celebrating in front of the Supreme Court last Thursday after the supreme. Court ruled that the trump administration had acted unlawfully when it tried to rescind DACA, the deferred action for childhood arrivals program designed to protect people known as dreamers. From a moral standpoint, this is a tremendously gratifying decision. Dreamers about the most sympathetic people you could imagine, and the fact that the trump administration sought their deportation was again from a moral standpoint horrendous. That, said the supreme. Court's decision was itself surprising on the law. The decision was written by chief. Justice John Roberts who is ordinarily a staunch conservative. And as the fact that it was a five to four decision shows, there were grounds that a conservative justice like Roberts could have used. Had He wanted to decide that? What Barack Obama put in place namely the DACA program Donald Trump could remove indeed. Roberts typically has a rather expensive conception of executive power, and although we can know with one hundred percents certainty I would say ninety nine percent probability that several years ago Roberts was one of the justices who voted to strike down an Obama program that was similar to Dhaka aimed at parents. So what was going on here? Why did chief justice? John Roberts choose to leave his conservative. And join the Liberals to keep Daca in place. Sometimes when Roberts issues, apparently liberal decision, it's clear that what he's doing is trying to preserve the appearance of legitimacy of the Supreme Court. Voiding scenario where the public would think of the justices as basically partisan. Roberts understands that the public knows that the Supreme Court justices have different ideologies. What he doesn't want is for the public to think that the justices vote based on the party of the person who appointed that. That may explain Roberts's vote not to entirely strike down obamacare. The affordable care act some years ago. In the case. However Roberts's motivation seems to have been somewhat different. What seems to be motivating, Roberts is a kind of disrespect for the Donald Trump administration's unwillingness to cross. It's t's dots is and follow the rule of law when it comes to issuing important governmental decisions. We saw this a year ago when Roberts also provided the decisive fifth vote to reverse the trump administration's plan to put a citizenship question on the twenty twenty census. Census in that case, as in the DACA case Roberts relied on a law called the administrative precede. ACT, which is the law that gives a federal courts, the authority to oversee and review decisions of administrative bodies in order to determine whether they complied with the procedures that the law demands in particular. The Administrative Procedure Act requires that the government give clear honest and. Justify and reasons for why it's doing what it's doing. And both the census case and the DACA case. Roberts ruled that the government had failed to provide those justifications in essence. Roberts was saying taking the action in question was within the General Authority of the executive branch, but the executive branch didn't do a good enough job of explaining why it did what it did. This kind of judicial supervision of governmental action is crucial to preserving the rule of law, and it's pretty clear that John Roberts no longer trusts the trump administration to do that to be sure at the beginning of the trump administration roberts was willing to give trump the benefit of the doubt. He after all wrote the opinion in the trump against Hawaii case, the one involving the Muslim travel ban in which he upheld the presence authority to issue the version of the travel ban that was in play the time. What seems to have happened subsequently is that has Roberts has gotten a closer and closer look at trump's disrespect for the courts and his disrespect for the rule of law. He's decided to take on the role of defending judiciary defending the rule of law, and if making trump comply. And it may not be a relevant. That Roberts, also had to spend a good chunk of his January sitting in the Senate, listening to the impeachment managers condemnation of Donald, trump, precisely for his disrespect for the rule of law, so if you're wondering whether John Roberts has suddenly become a liberal. Take it from me. He has not I expect more conservative decisions from him possibly even this week or next but John. Roberts has taken up the responsibility of the judiciary to keep an eye on this president. And for that I think everybody liberal or Conservative should be profoundly grateful.
