Biden officials blame Trump for border crisis
"Hours. President Biden has largely blamed the increasing number of migrants arriving at the southern U. S border on the previous administration. NPR's Franco Ordonez reports that some officials from the Trump administration are now pushing back. The Biden administration says it was handed a crumbling immigration system. They describe steps they've taken to accept unaccompanied minors and then controversial programs that require migrants to remain in Mexico. As quote a moral imperative. But some former leaders like then acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf say the Biden administration is actually dismantling systems that worked. The administration is treating this as though it's a capacity issue. And not in illegal behavior issue. And that's a fundamental difference, Wolf said. Ending those programs sent a message to the region that the border is open. But those programs were also controversial and included reports of
US Officials To Hold Talks in Mexico & Guatemala on Migration
"Migrants coming to the U. S border. Thousands of unaccompanied teens and Children in U. S custody, some held in jail like facilities. More likely on the way. This is the urgent situation facing President Biden at the border today and an echo of the one he faced as vice president back in 2014. His approach so far is similar focus on the root causes. Today, he sent three top officials to Mexico and Guatemala to discuss how to manage the increasing numbers of people trying to reach the U. S. Joining us to talk more about this is Franco or join us and Przybyl, White House correspondent and Franco first tell us just the basics of this trip to Mexico. Well, I think this is a trip that really shows how urgent the situation really is. Most of the migrants to the U. S border are from three Central American countries. Mexico had been working with the former administration to keep them from making that journey through Mexico, but that largely stopped. Biden is now sending two top officials from the National Security Council and another from the state Department to the region. Roberta Jacobson. She will be leading talks with Mexico's foreign secretary, Marcello Abroad and other top Mexican officials. She was actually an ambassador to Mexico during the Obama administration, and she'll be joined by one Gonzales, the NSC senior director for the region. Now they'll be talking about how to manage the situation and also be exploring a joint development strategy for Mexico and the Northern Triangle countries, you know, trying to work together to address the root causes of migration. Let's take one example. Guatemala What's on the agenda there? Welcome. Salas, again from the NSC and Ricardo Zuniga from the State Department will travel to Guatemala to meet with president they part of the President Alejandro Giammetti and his foreign minister, Pedro Barolo, and other economic and security officials. They will also meet with representatives from the private sector and civil society groups. You know, the big picture here is that President Biden feels that security and prosperity in Central America Are closely linked to security and prosperity in the United States. Give us some context here in terms of how Biden waiting when he was vice president, and maybe what he's doing differently this time around as president. Well, his vice president, Biden led a similar effort to Rio to address the root causes of migration. It was called the Alliance for Prosperity, and it provided a billion dollars to help police training, judicial reform and and corruption. This time around. He wants to offer $4 billion. Now I talked to Andrew Seeley about this. He's the president of the Migration Policy Institute. He said Biden is finding out the hard reality about this challenge that faces all presidents. And that it's not easy. The border is to immigration politics with the Middle East is to foreign policy. You know, every president comes in determined to do something focus on a different part of immigration. And ends up sucked into the border in some way. Frankly, Biden now owns this issue and the political fall out in a way that he didn't when he was just the vice president and one big difference in his approach this time is that the administration is going to be a bit more clear eyed about the realities of corruption at the highest level of these governments and Central America. The administration says they will on Lee give the money to community and international organizations. How has the Biden administration responded to criticism from Republicans who are claiming that Biden triggered this influx of migrants by reversing some of the restrictive immigrant immigration policies? Of President Trump's, You know, it's been a difficult thing to answer. On the one hand, the bind Administration says Look, we're going to have a more humane policy and going to rebuild the asylum system, which was largely dismantled by the former administration. On the other hand, they're saying Don't come now. And there's a sense that that message is a little bit muddied. The White House insists they've been clear they point to the thousands of radio ads and targeted social media ads in the region that they say have reached millions of people. But the numbers of people coming to the border are still high. And while the administration says that most people are turned away Children or not, and some families are not as well. And will Biden visit the board? Well, he said yesterday that heals go at some point, but there's no sense that that will happen in the near future. That's NPR.

No, Oh, what are you taking? umbrage with or Ambroise using this expression features one of the surviving uses of umbrage, which now means resentment, but it comes from the Latin umbra for shade, presumably alludes to the shadow of displeasure. So shade is an old saying. No Shade Umbrella Oh okay I got wired resentful, and I heard shade, and I think of modern colloquial for shade is to disrespect or cast some kind of aspersion..

Like three times in wasn't couldn't even get to fifty. And that's your perspective is being an actor in it. Who is there for probably a couple of months right and you think about Mike Judge, and now like now that I've been on the other side of the camera where it's like Oh my God. Making a movie is so insane and like you really put everything into it and you. You Hope it works my movies coming out this week, and I feel so vulnerable those and like obviously I wanted to work for personal reasons, but I also just really thinking about everyone else involved. All these people trusted me and believed in me and I wanted to work for them. I mean Dude I made a movie for a million bucks hit and run, and I literally taking money from a human being in palm springs where a real human paid for this. I guess the thing. I hope you're thinking about a lot that has helped me I was so depressed after chips, and I had a meeting with Kevin Smith about something completely unrelated, but we started talking about that experience, and he said listen man. The thing I recommend is imagine going to yourself on the playground in fifth grade like Dave Franco fifth grade in you go. Hey, dave, it's me Dave so when you grow up. You'RE GONNA be in movies, and you're gonNA fucking. Make one in fifth grade Dave Franko be like. Get the fuck I'm GonNa make a movie fifth grade. Dave Franco was debilitating shy okay. In any world fifth grade Dave Franco goes. How much did it make Dave? Ever be on your radar. No I know and here's here's what I will say is again. Obviously I hope people like it. Obviously I hope people see it. Would I take comfort in is that the final product is pretty damn close to what I initially conceived in what initially was pitching, so I gotta just be happy with that. I made the movie I wanted to make and I have people around me. Who let me make that movie in? Let me take big swings and try to do. Something within this Johner. That felt a little different. Yeah, you know as fucked up. This whole pandemic has been like one silver lining is that these smaller films actually are getting a little bit more of spotlight for a couple of reasons, we're not having to compete with these giant blockbusters that are having to push to later in the year, and also people just need new content and so i. feel like there's also this Tennessee right now, and maybe I'm just speaking for myself. Is that like my standards have been lowered during the search? Through all the material shows and Good and just anything new feels exciting. We'll take any extra little boost we can. We can get at this point now back to the fifth grade. Day Franko so..

"I'm assuming hockey games in Spain. Everyone just hums along because there's no lyrics exactly yeah in March two thousand six. The Permanent Commission of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe unanimously adopted a resolution unquote firmly condemning. The multiple in serious violations of human rights committed in Spain under the Franco regime from nineteen thirty nine to nineteen seventy five. The resolution Russian also urged that historians professional and amateur be given access to the various archives of the Franco regime including those of the private Francisco Franko National Foundation the NF which according with other franco-ist archives remain inaccessible to the public as of two thousand six the F F F received various archives is from El Pardo Palace and is alleged to have sold some of them to private individuals. I don't like that no good Furthermore the resolution urged Spanish authorities orgies to set up an underground exhibit violent. Oh Sky you those monument to explain the quote terrible conditions in which it was built so Spain has a long long way to ago in the realm of like remembering remembering accurately and like dealing with. The issues is a Franco of Spain. Because they're still a lot that people and some people remember things differently. Yes so it's difficult and ELMO has really opened my eyes to that. So that was Francisco Franco In my archives class that I teach sh I do a week on records a social memory and there was a case a couple years ago that a national public television the station in South America aired this like twelve episode series. That was that was fiction but based on true stories of what happened under the Pinochet dictatorship. Oh Yeah And so talked about the people that were The people that are executed in the people that tortured and how nobody reported on it at the time we all happening and no one talks about it now so they base a lot of this off stuff that they found around in in a Catholic archives area and provided resources for people who are interested in these stories to like go to the website and look it it up and now these records are open and you can talk to. You can talk about them. And so this like really instilled like a a newfound interest From the younger generation nations because they weren't necessarily alive when all this was happening but they they experienced the trickle down effects of all of that absolute. Because nobody talked about it they just knew like like Simba's Jeff happened and a lot of people died but we don't talk about it and so like having this beyond like the national like their public television station and like like being given access to more information has really created like a dialogue and his creative people opening up talking more about these atrocities that happened. And it's it's very interesting yarn about it's astounding like I mean if I've learned anything it's that what does it daylight is the best cleaner. Error the best disinfectant in so many so many axioms at me to- after adage. Yeah daylight is the best disinfectant. That's it so so this idea of like you can't hide things forever especially things that like. Thousands of people knew knew about houses of people were affected by hundreds of thousands of people were affected by and even if like a bunch of guys in a room or like all right. We're just GONNA forget right. We're all we all agreed to forget. No one is going to forget and if you instill that you're not you're not any better than the original regime. See you might as well get it all out in the open and start to talk about that kind of terrible political medical history of your country and that's how you get to be better so Spain Spain a beautiful country and they love their come on.

"Thirty seven Franco had conquered the Basque lands and the studios and had also combined the fascist and Marcus political parties to form his flunk a sponge while dissolving all others also known as they are failing. Okay so from here on on when I say hey like that In Spanish that is his his political party in January nineteen thirty nine. The Republican stronghold of Barcelona Lona fell to the nationalists she slapping. That's how you pronounce it. Ovation Spanish Barcelona and also a Beatha F why Bertha Luna fell to the nationalists followed two months later by Madrid and on April first nineteen thirty nine after receiving an unconditional surrender Franko announced the end of the Spanish civil war. You're okay he was like it's done. I one everyone shut up. So sources vary but many estimate the number of casualties resulting from the war as high as five the hundred thousand with perhaps as many as two hundred thousand the result of executions perpetrated by Franco and his forces so on paper Franko had more more power than any Spanish leader before. Or since. Wow Yeah for the first four years after taking Madrid he ruled almost exclusively by decree the law of the ahead of State Pass in August nineteen thirty nine permanently confided all government power to Franko. He was not required to consult the cabinet for most legislation or decrease so so he could be like having a really rough morning. Yup I can't believe that a horse cut me off and traffic. Yup Horses are legal. Yeah and everyone's it's just sided okay. Horses Legal Yeah. According to historians Franko possessed far more day to day power than Hitler or Stalin possessed at their their respective heights of their power our yeah so historians note that while Hitler and Stalin maintained rubber-stamp parliament's he. They had at least like the impression that there were other the people. This is not the case in Spain in the early years after the war. which is a situation that nominally made Franco's regime quote the most purely arbitrary in the world because it's just one guy making decisions and he mentioned of Failing at a Weatherman Academy. Oh No I think frankly just always wanted to be a power hungry military leader. So that's good. I guess just like single-minded felt for the star reach for the stars and you too can be just like Francisco Franco. No don't don't please don't so. For nearly four decades following the conflict Franko who became known as El Colegio which means the leader but in like more direct translation. Elation means like tree trunk so like the base like the solid cower of the country. He would rule Spain through a repressive dictatorship immediately following the war. Military Tribunals were held that led to tens of thousands more being executed or imprisoned Franko also outlawed unions and all all religions except for Catholicism as well as banning the Catalan and Basque languages and to enforce its power over Spain. He established a vast network of secret. Police which seems to to be every dictators. Just GonNa do it. Yeah accessory. Did he let people leave the country he did at he did at at first before he became like he really likes solidify ass power. Okay and I mean we'll talk about it in a little bit. But after after a while he kind of like relax a little bit especially in the sixties when like the world was much different than when he had. Oh Gosh yeah okay. So although Franco had visions of restoring Spanish grandeur after the civil war in reality he was a leader of an exhausted countries still divided internally and impoverished by a long and costly war so sub disability of his government was made more precarious by the outbreak of World War. Two only five months after he gained so despite his sympathy for the Axis Powers New Order Franco at first declared Spanish neutrality. In the conflict he was like thanks for all your planes and stuff. But we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA say here on this Peninsula Sheila so. His policy changed after the fall of France in June nineteen forty when he approached Hitler Fro indicated his willingness to bring Spain into the war Germany side in exchange for extensive German military economic assistance and the session of Spain of most of Francis Territorial Holdings North West Africa so Hitler was either are unable or unwilling to meet this price and after meeting with Franco in France in October. Nineteen Forty Hitler remarked that he would quote as soon have three or four teeth. Pulled out take go through another bargaining session like that again. So when Hitler is like I don't ever WanNa talk to this asshole ever again again. Then you're a really big ass God then you're bad you're the worst. I'm certainly not saying. The Franco was worse than Hitler. It's it's just different flavors of we can we who are we. Yeah who are we nobody. So Franco's government sense. Fourth remained relatively sympathetic to the axis powers while carefully avoiding any direct diplomatic and military commitment to them this would this would be beneficial to them to at least a certain degree at the rate of the war. But we'll get into that. Let's talk a little bit about Jews and Franco sprays. Oh grandma thumbs. So Spain provided visas for thousands of French. I used to transit Spain and route to Portugal to escape. The Nazis Spanish diplomats protected about four thousand Jews living in Hungary Romania Bulgaria Czechoslovakia and Austria. At least some twenty thousand to thirty thousand Jews were allowed to pass through Spain in the first half of the war and Jews who were not allowed to enter Spain however spent to the mid on the concentration camp camp or depot deported to France so in January nineteen forty-three after the German embassy in Spain told Spanish government that had two months to remove its Jewish citizens from Western Europe. Spain severely limited visas and only eight hundred. Jews were allowed to enter the country after the war Franco exaggerated his contribution in helping to save Jews in order to end. Spain's isolation relation and to improve Spain's image in the world after the war. The Spanish government tried to destroy all evidence of its cooperation with the access powers in two thousand. Ten documents were discovered showing that on May thirteenth nineteen forty. One Franco ordered his provincial governors to compile a list of Jews while he negotiated an alliance with the Axis Powers Franko Franko supplied on Rick Himmler architects of the Nazis Final Solution with a list of six thousand Jews in Spain after the war Franko allowed many former Nazis such as auto score Zany and lay on to growl and other former fascists to flee to Spain so he was like see what I did. I let all these Jews like leave. Haski like don't be mad at us. Yeah but he definitely was like. Hey Guys I've got this list and you should definitely come in here and take them. So where caves. Yeah Archives Archives. Doing the Lord's work so when the tide of war began to turn against the powers in nineteen forty-three Franken once more declared Spain's neutrality. He was like still. Don't look at us but in the aftermath of the conflict is former allegiances. Were not forgotten as a result. Spain was ostracized by the United Nations. Placing a significant economic strain on the country so in July twenty six nineteen forty seven Franco proclaimed Spain a monarchy. He did not designate a monarch. This gesture was largely done to appease the monarchists in the Movimento Nacional which is a political party. That was all about just like we want to bring back a King Franko left the throne vacant until nineteen sixty nine proclaiming himself as de facto regent for life and at the same time Franko appropriated many of the privileges of a king. He wore the a uniform of a captain. General a rank traditionally reserved for a King Resided in the El Pardo palace which was all of the Spanish gangs with live live. In addition he began walking under a canopy and his portrait appeared on most Spanish coins and postage since he also edited by the grace of God. A phrase usually part of the styles of monarchs to his style. Yeah so although Franco in Spain under his rule adopted some trappings of fascism. He and Spain under his rule are generally not considered to be fascist. Okay so this is just a man. Is Italy Italy Italy Italy Fascist so among the distinctions fascism entails a revolutionary aim to transform warm society where Franco did not seek to do so and to the contrary although authoritarian he was by nature conservative and traditional the few consistent points in Franco's long rule were above all authoritarianism. Nationalism Catholicism Anti Freemasonry Anti-communism so not by definition of fascist fascist. Still Super Bad guy. So circumstances changed however with the advent of the Cold War crank. Oh status as a staunch anti-communist led led to economic and military assistance from the United States in exchange for the establishment of military bases in Spain this alliance commenced with visit of US president. Dwight Eisenhower learn how to Spain in nineteen fifty three which resulted in the pact of Madrid. Spain was then admitted into the United Nations in nineteen fifty five. An American military facilities in Spain built since since then included Naval Station Road Up Mon airbase and totally hone airbase so. Let's talk about women. Franco's Spain oh please. Yeah so Franco ISM professor devotion to the traditional role of a woman in society. That is being a loving daughter and sister to her parents and brothers being a faithful wife to her husband and and residing with her family official propaganda can find the role of women to family care and motherhood immediately after the war most progressive laws passed by the republic aimed at equality between the sexist. Were nullified women could not become judges or testify in trial. They could not become university. Professors their affairs economic lives had to be managed by their fathers and husbands spins and until the nineteen seventies. A woman could not have a bank account without a cosigned by her father or husband later. In the later nineteen seventy these restrictions were somewhat relaxed. But this was the case for a very long time. Franco's domestic policies became somewhat more liberal during the nineteen fifties and sixties and the continuity of his regime together with its capacity for creative evolution. One him at least a limited degree of respect for some of his critics forgot about all the bad stuff. Yeah they were like oh well he's letting us. They were under like his fist for so long that he was like all right. Women can open up a bank account and they're like Oh my God. He's so great but Alan leader. He said that he did not find the burden of government particularly heavy and in fact his rule was marked by by absolute self confidence and relative indifference to criticism awesome. He demonstrated marked political ability. Engaging the psychology of the diverse elements ranging from moderate liberals extreme reactionaries. Who support was necessary for his regime survival so he was able to kind of read the room and tell people what they wanted to hear Enough so that he didn't really have any like there wasn't isn't any conflicts like nobody was trying for a coup. Everyone was just kind of like desiring. Space is what we do He maintained a careful balance among them. In largely Ashley left the execution of policy to his appointees thereby placing himself as arbiter above the storm of ordinary political conflict to a considerable degree the blame for unsuccessful full or unpopular policies tended to fall an individual ministers rather than on Franko Okay so the State party downgraded in the early nineteen forties in later years became known John Merely as the movement and lost much of its original quasi fascist identity so nineteen sixty seven. He opened direct elections for a small minority of deputies to.
