First time that a plan is ever helped you have their first amendment rights upheld. But it took place in the took place in New Mexico is even cooler. The president MO photos. Parents on TV on Saturday. Didn't solve anything, and my opinion is that the Democrats should not concede. In fact, I think the Democrats should dig in even a little harder. I understand my point of view come from one of you know, it's a biased point of view. I don't have to worry about feeding the kids. I'm not a federal employee. I'm not unfair low. Understand. It's a biased point of view. But I think the Democrats should dig in. In fact, I think Nancy Pelosi today should indeed informed the White House that the state of the union speech scheduled for a week from today is indeed off. Only even hanging anymore speaker. Cancel it. Well, delay postpone it. Because right now Republicans are digging in and they're hoping the Democrats are gonna get all kind of squishy and Lucy, and then give in out of compassion. Instead the Republicans. Well, this is what this is what politico is saying this thirteen hundred page spending Bill released today by the White House. Republicans basically, they're calling a Stephen Miller special. Stephen Miller the hard right in I immigrants adviser to the president. Politico is saying this this is from Greg Chen director of government relations from the American immigration lawyers association. We'll find out what JJ mulligans sepulveda's has to say about this at two o'clock be he'll join us, and he is an immigration attorney, Greg. China's saying, quote, any Senator who is genuinely concerned about maintaining America's commitment to protecting asylum seekers and refugees cannot support this Bill. Especially the kids. The children Obama administration. Previously offered Central American children the opportunity to apply for asylum. From their home countries. But it did not block them from seeking refuge at the border. Trump ended the Obama era program in two thousand seventeen you have to keep that in mind, folks, Furthermore, Republican spending Bill would toughen this is their reaction to Trump's laughable address on Saturday. Pelvic is spending Bill would toughen. The overall standard for asylum for children. From those countries Central America, Guatemala. Salvador and Honduras, the northern triangle. The secretary of homeland security. With need to consider and asylum grant for minors. To be in the national interest. According to this Bill. A hurdle that could be heaped on top of all the other existing requirements. So if your child you will now be forced to apply for asylum from your village in Guatemala. I'm not kidding. This is Republican reaction to the president's compromised propose on Saturday. You're telling the eight year old. If you want asylum in our country kid, you have to apply for Silom from your village in Guatemala. Gee, how would they do that? Do you suppose? Compassionate. Isn't it? It makes the appearance yesterday of the president and the vice president laying a wreath at the tomb or the monument for Martin Luther King's me, the Martin the monument for Martin Luther King in the mall in Washington DC, basically, just a walk by a run by kind of walked in through the read down and bolted. They were there less than two minutes. Lacking. Compassion, lacking empathy. Lacking a heart liking the soul. After republicans. Democrats dig in digging harder. Cancel the state of the union. So if your eight year old you now have to apply for asylum from your village in Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala. And. That's.

"Us to discuss all this is Greg Chen. He's the director of government relations for the American immigration lawyers association. Gregg, welcome to the takeaway. Thank you for having me Tenzin. So let's take a broad look across the country when it comes to the immigration courts and the government shutdown. What are we seeing what is most dramatic as the example of the story? Mr. OTS feeling shows is that the president's shutdown is jeopardizing the lives of asylum seekers and other immigrants who have been waiting often for years for their cases to be resolved. And what that means is that asylum seekers who are worried about their lives at that. They could still be sent back to dangerous conditions in their home countries. They're still waiting in limbo and evidence in their case could go stale witnesses who are going to provide declarations and information showing the persecution and the violence that these people have suffered could be lost. And so the. This shutdown is really making the courts, not operational at this point and lives are going to be people are really going to be hurt by this. What about attorneys how are they handling the situation? I mean, do they understand how this shutdown is affecting their clients? Well, we are still trying to figure that out and with fifteen thousand immigration lawyer members across the country. Will we are hearing from our members that they're having their cases be delayed and an off the docket and as judged habit or described the vast majority of cases in this backlog of more than he heard thousand cases now possibly more than a million. If all the additional cases are added as the administration has planned to do. Those vast majority of cases, those are the ones that are sitting on the dockets in the non detain calendar. These people that are not in detention of any kind those cases are being pushed off, and they will have to wait typically more than a year in New York. We're talking about probably not having your. Case go back on until two thousand twenty two or twenty twenty three. That's a few years out and attorneys are still trying to figure out what to do to make sure these severe delays don't hurt their clients as we mentioned in the introduction. There is a severe backlog of these cases even before the shutdown happened. We interview judge Ashley tab for who was with the national association of immigration judges. And she told us the following we need to remove the immigration court from the Justice department, the backlog that we're seeing now and the functionality that we're seeing now all stem from the fact that we have an immigration court run by a prosecutor. So it is absolutely indefensible to have a court that have that ability of a prosecutor to interfere and interested in the courts for non perspectives and policy. You can't have the executive branch responsible for the enforcement of the law. As well. As education of claims that are brought result at the enforcement of those laws. Greg your thoughts on that is judged tab adore correct is the lack of independence for immigration courts. Partly to blame for the backlog Ayla. The American workers cessation does agree with position that the immigration courts can no longer be part of the department of Justice controlled by the attorney general, and it's true that the backlog of cases was already very large before this ministration took office, but policies that the Trump administration has implemented particularly under attorney general Jeff Sessions and his successors seem to be taking the same approach. Those policies have made worse they are literally preventing the courts from being able to operate efficiently, and the are literally hamstringing judges from being able to manage the dockets. So that they can take the cases that are requiring more urgent review. So they can make. Those decisions appropriately in a timely manner. They're holding those up, and what's happening is a we are seeing that due process for asylum seekers, a console rights are being affected here. Do they have any to those those folks have any recourse, given this shutdown? I mean, or is it really just a question of wait and see and we've got about thirty seconds left. Well, the policies of the administration are being challenged in the courts now, especially decisions that will directly limit the right of asylum seekers to be able to get fair review of their cases. Those are going to be challenged by lawyers in the courts, we will make sure to stop this. The constitution protects the rights of asylum seekers who are seeking protection in the courts and the courts can operate properly to guarantee that that is just not the American way. Greg China's the director of government relations for the American immigration lawyers association. Greg thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me. Let's get more now on the politics of the government shutdown. Amanda terkel is the Washington DC bureau chief for huffpost. Amanda, thanks so much for joining us. Thanks for having me. So we're in a stalemate here day seventeen. Are you hearing any solutions that might get us out of this? No. There's no right now there is no meeting scheduled between the White House and congressional leaders. It seems like a speaker Nancy Pelosi who is of course, a democrat wants to start considering individual bills to that would reopen the government and fun individual agencies. But that doesn't look like it's going anywhere in the Senate because Mitch McConnell doesn't want to take up something that President Trump won't side. And basically, the dynamics are still you have President Trump who is insisting that he gets five point seven billion dollars for his wall. And you have Democrats who say no way, and until something changes there. Nothing's happening. Well in the middle of all this as we know there are people's lives hanging in the balance. We just did a segment on the impact of the shutdown on immigration courts people's cases that are being backed up, but outside of that federal employees are just not getting paid from judges to TSA workers. I understand the politics of this. But I'm just thinking is there anything that will break this other than? The president's wall. What is going to happen is there's going to be more public pressure. Lawmakers to do something you already have three Senate Republicans Susan Collins, Cory Gardner and Thom Tillis they're facing tough reelection races in twenty twenty. So maybe this is part of why there are speaking out a little bit more. But they said they wanna see some resolution and they're not standing with Trump necessarily. So you you talked about all these federal workers who are facing these tough circumstances who aren't getting paid. They're going to be speaking up even more as the shutdown drags on. It's now the second longest shutdown in history. And if it goes through the weekend that'll be the longest one ever. Well, that's what I was gonna say to. I mean, you think about just the TSA folks who are, you know, this could actually present security issues for a lot of folks, I'm wondering if you think that the public pressure will be enough to get some movement on either side here, I think it will be eventually definitely I mean, that's what's ended these shutdowns in the past. I mean. Do you think people think about federal workers is all being centered around DC, but that's not actually true federal workers more federal workers work at other parts of the country than in Washington DC. And so people are hearing about this from all over the place, and we've talked about the people who aren't working aren't getting paid. But then you as you said, they're all these workers who are working and who still aren't getting paid. And they have to figure out how they're paying for child care. They have to figure out how they're paying for their rent. And they have all these bills that they need to keep up with it. Just because their paycheck maybe coming. Eventually. That's not good enough. Yeah. I have a feeling a government shutdown. No matter what side of the political divide your on. It's going to be less and less palatable as people don't get paid as the weeks go on and you have taxis and coming up next month's is when people start filing to get returns and to get refunds and the IRS right now isn't equipped to do that. And so you're going to have people mad there. And then you have this issue of the national part at least. Seven people have died and national park since the shutdown began investigations into those deaths have been delayed because they haven't been able to have the workers to look into them. And so there's a lot of public safety issues as well. Amanda terkel is the Washington DC bureau chief for huffpost. Amanda. Thank you. Thank you. On the next on being visual storyteller.

"This is the takeaway, I'm Tanna Vega. And it's day seventeen of the government shutdown the second longest shutdown in US history. Some TSA workers are reportedly calling out sick because they can't afford to get to work and many government agencies, including the EPA NASA. And the national weather service are not active, but government employees aren't the only ones affected by the shutdown for thousands of immigrants and asylum seekers awaiting their day in court the shutdown has presented yet. Another obstacle hearings that were scheduled to take place over the past two weeks have been postponed indefinitely, and that leaves many people in limbo and adds to the already extensive backlog of cases, Gagi OT has v Lee is one of them. Happen bomb tonight house one time, they talked to several timing my country after the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early nineteen nineties the eastern European country of Georgia gained its independence the tensions between Russia and Georgia remained has really worked for the Georgian government at the time in August. Two thousand one verily fled Georgia and arrived in New York to apply for a Silom. My will take legal aid. Never I was hiding from the government as a form of government worker and statement, I never have any patient to do any whole of jazz villi merit a US citizen and built his life in the United States. All the while. He was waiting for his day to stand before a federal immigration judge. And after seventeen years, he finally got a notice feuding appointed general is. Everybody knows his could be final. Listen, say thinking everything could be good his final hearing. And then the years long process would come to an end, but then the government shutdown because it's a court to shut down. We don't know when court view another new. And his January second hearing was canceled. Now, again, he must wait and the backlog in the immigration courts is already years long. So we now have about sixty courts across the country and about four hundred 'immigration judges, but our backlog is well over eight hundred thousand cases, and growing if you count the cases that you turn general and his recent decision stated he wanted to put back on the docket. That would take us to well over one point one million backlog cases, that's Ashley tab for federal immigration judge who spoke to us on behalf of the national association of immigration, judges tablet, or is the group's president of the million cases that are currently in the backlog, a large majority or for immigrants who are not currently detained. Many have followed all the laws that are awaiting a decision from judge for the non detain docket. All of the cases have been cancelled. So every day thousands of thousands of cases that had previously been scheduled on not being heard, and that's being exacerbated because of the government shutdown. So for people like Gog, yo has. Really from Georgia. That means his case could now end up at the back of the line ran occasions. Not heard when you have something like this done and the cases are being. It isn't like you can just turn around and rollover four thousand cases, and Kyle everyone magically to just show up, you know, two weeks later three weeks later. No, you have to now find a place for the cases that were not heard which means that it's likely going to go the back of the docket. So those individuals on now going to have two or three or maybe much longer. Periods of been may. Or you're going to have to bump other cases, and for the immigration judges, the shutdown means they're working for free. First of all all of our judges are now in a non page data. So no one getting paid is past weekend. We were supposed to have a paycheck, and no one has received one as far as I know, and as court hearings get cancelled the backlog is getting bigger and bigger because our judges, particularly the ones who have the non detain dockets have thousands of cases individually that they're responsible for I have summer about. Twenty five hundred cases, the last time I love, and I have colleagues who have upwards of five or six thousand cases on their docket. So it's not unusual for judges to have cases scheduled on their docket up. Two to three or four years ahead of time. Joining us to discuss all this is Greg Chen. He's the director of government relations for the American immigration lawyers association. Gregg, welcome to the takeaway. Thank you for having me..
