We'll have our eyes on the weather all day for you. Matt Harrop News 88 7. This is Houston matters. I'm Craig Cohen. Good morning. Coming up this hour Cots plans a lawsuit against Chevron, the craft beer explosion in Houston and a new toasted ravioli siding here. At first the Senate confirmation hearing for Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, President Biden's nominee to head up immigration and Customs enforcement gets underway in a matter of minutes to tell us more. We're joined now. By news. 88 7 Immigration reporter Elizabeth Trove All Elizabeth. Good Morning. Good morning, Craig You reported earlier this morning about this, but for those who did not hear it based on your conversations with immigrant rights advocates, what are some of the changes they'd like to see. Gonzalez change if he is confirmed as the new head of ice? Well, a big one is ending the collaborations between ice and local law enforcement and then another one is just really scaling back. Immigrant detention advocates say there's no need to be holding thousands of people in detention centers of their only facing a civil immigration charges. So the only laws that they've broken our immigration one that that relationship between Ice and law enforcement. Obviously, he's as as the sheriff of Harris County is going to imagine have lots to be able to say about that. Whether or not it's a good idea to say so much at a confirmation hearing. Yes. Yes, it will be really interesting to hear the extent to which he talks about his role as as sheriff and his interactions with ice and and people in his jail that have ended up in ice detention, which there have been thousands. What have you learned about his reputation here in Harris County from both immigrant and criminal justice advocates Yes. So I had a really interesting conversation with Krish undo at the Texas Jail project, And she said that when Sheriff Gonzalez took office, she was she was really looking forward to having him in office. She was very optimistic about the improvements that could be made to the jails. Things like better food and medical care, mental health care. Um, but she says that she's been let down by him overall and She has seen a willingness for changing an openness to have conversations. Um, ultimately, she's seen a lot of the poor conditions in the Harris County Jail continue like, for example, the use of excessive force. When president former president Trump threatened a wave of mass deportations in 2019. Sheriff Gonzalez opposed those tactics. He said then that he didn't support the idea of ice raids against undocumented immigrants. Could that public stand both help and hinder his nomination and kind of how things play out of the hearing today? I think that would be something to really listen for. I think we definitely will see that tension and I think we'll see really different. Um Maybe criticisms on those of those comments from Republicans and maybe praise from Democrats, But we'll have to wait and see. What are the phrases that comes up A lot is ice detainers, and I don't know if everybody knows what this is about. What are they? And how do they relate to Sheriff Gonzalez and and his nomination to head up ice? Well, they are a little bit confusing. So, um, the ice detainers are when someone is they're booked in at jail, and there's like a computer system. Basically that flags them as having an immigration charge and So ice is basically notified that this person is in a local jail and they can issue a detainer so basically a hold. So then the jail keeps them until the immigration officers can go pick them up and then take them to ice detention. And since he's been sheriff Harris County has issued thousands of detainers and more than any county in the country. On NPR this morning. We also heard a report from Joel Rose. Uh, he featured area immigration lawyer Mario Ghani talking about how Sheriff Gonzalez has developed a reputation for being low key. The one of the words users is not a showboat. And as she says, he gets the job done. How much do you suppose that personality that Loki get the work done approach that he does seem to be known for here is what it may be appealed to the Biden administration and has led to his nomination. Well, he's certainly not a controversial figure, and I can't really speak to what exactly appealed to the Biden administration, But, um You know, there's the University of Houston polling showing that he's a well liked local politician here in Houston and being a popular law enforcement officer and a so called blue city in a red state. I mean, that can't can't hurt him. Uh, Aside from everything that we've already talked about, just as an immigration reporter, somebody who's who's keeping tabs on so many things related to this issue, and, of course, immigration, Customs enforcement. That's what That agency is about what else will you listen for during this morning's hearing? Well, I'm really curious to see if he addresses how he could make changes inside ice detention facilities regarding medical care. You know, we've seen high rates of covid 19 infections, So that's been something I've been reporting on all year, So I'm very interested to see if he addresses that. And this hasn't gotten much attention. But a recent government report found that ice is failing to follow up on human trafficking tips and human trafficking. Being such a big issue here in Houston. I'm I'm curious. If that comes up in the hearing today, I guess in a way this all goes back to some degree to the idea of the culture within ice within an agency, and this must happen with lots of government agencies when you go from one administration to another, and there are always lots of staff. Lots of Uh, career folks in in these offices who go from one administration to another and suddenly are sent in a very different direction in terms of policy, how how he might be able to wrangle that. I mean, that's that's that's That's the big question, right? I mean, these are huge policy shifts between we're not Obama and then with Trump and then now with with Biden, and I think those cultural shifts are something to look for. Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez is scheduled to testify starting in just a couple of minutes before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee in Washington today as the nominee.

NPR's Sidney Lumpkin As details on the agency's findings. Medicare spent about $560 billion on drugs between 2016 and 2018. More than half of that went toward drugs that were advertised directly to consumers. That's according to a new report from the Government Accountability Office. The researchers wrote that TV commercials and print ads may have contributed to more Medicare spending on some drugs. For instance, when Abby increased advertising for an Alzheimer's drug by $76 Million.300,000 more people on Medicare started using it. But there could also be other factors such as the Food and Drug Administration, approving a new use for a drug. So the jail found that isolating advertising's precise effect on Medicare spending is difficult. Sidney Lumpkin.

As NPR's Tamara Keith reports, Trump is accusing lawmakers of providing what he calls the bare minimum to the American people and says he wants higher direct payments to individuals and families. The bipartisan legislation includes funding for vaccine distribution aid for small businesses, extending enhanced unemployment benefits and providing $600 cash payments to help Americans whether the economic fall out of the pandemic.

President Trump is throwing a big wrench into the massive covert relief bill that Congress overwhelmingly passed last night. In a video this evening. He calls the bill a disgrace. It's taken forever. However, the bill they are now planning to send back to my desk is much different than anticipated. It really is a disgrace. NPR. White House correspondent Tamara Keith is here with more. Hi, Tam. Hello. Okay. What did Trump say in this four minute video? Yeah. I mean, the video comes up. You think maybe it's holiday Greetings. He has festive decorations around him. No, that is absolutely not what he was doing. He is complaining that the covert relief bill has nothing to do with co vid. Um, However, he may be miss understanding or miss explaining the bill it it's actually two really huge pieces of legislation combined together. It's the covert relief legislation, and it's also funding for the entire federal government for the full fiscal year ahead. One thing to note, although he says it's a disgrace, he did not use the word veto. So in this long litany of things that he's listening that the bill does that have nothing to do with Cove in some of the things we're just funding the government. What does he say? He wants changed. Yes. So there are three major things. One is he talked a bit about a provision that he has really taken an interest in throughout this period of of negotiations on the covert relief legislation. It's known informally as the three Martini lunch prevision. The idea is that restaurants have been really suffering and they this provision would make it so that businesses can write off lunches and dinners and and expensive outings to restaurants, and that that would help restaurants that it last two years. President Trump says That provision should last even longer..
