Trump signs order targeting undocumented immigrants in the US census
"So the undocumented immigrants to the president tried to I have a question about citizenship added to the census, The Supreme Court said that it couldn't be not that it could not be done. It couldn't be done the way that the president wanted to do it. So that was nixed from the census. Now the president is saying that what they want to do is they don't want illegal aliens to count toward the citizenship or toward the numbers in a district when it comes to when use move. Congressional seats around how seats are dictated by population in the census changes it every 10 years. Arizona has gained seats since I've moved here 25 years ago. Because Arizona is growing. It's the fastest growing place in the country for a while. Both Maricopa County and then Harris County, where Houston, Texas is where the two fastest growing counties in the U. S. Maricopa County has been the leader so far this year. The desert Southwest is a new destination for people. So the growth in Arizona will continue. I believe as well. Our neighboring states of New Mexico, Nevada, California, Southern California's always been very populated. But these other places we're going to see growth, which means those congressional seats will migrate from some of the states. Where population has been falling. Now it was called classic with Rust Belt in the Midwest. But we're seeing other states in the northern US people are migrating to the cooler states. And let's be honest. Arizona is a very tax friendly state next to Nevada, which doesn't have a state income tax that also plays a role. So all that being said we should. In the next census, we should gain at least one house seat in Arizona. And where we get that from? I don't know, but we should get one at least one. But how will this affect if they cause right now? How do you How do you count Illegals? Because if we're not counting them officially in the census, how do you know how many people in the state are illegal? Now? Let's be honest. If you're talking about congressional seats, let's drop the racial aspect ofthe of immigration. The immigration issue legal versus illegal Dropping the racial issue for a moment because again it gets to be very emotional, and I understand it. It does seem logical that when you're talking about the migration of house seats, it would be based on voters. It would be based based on families of voters. So when you are seeing the numbers of families moving here with people that are citizens in the U. S. They're voting families whether the kids aren't voting, but the parents are Wouldn't that make sense that you would be counting people that were citizens because they're the only ones that have the availability to vote? Do the census once every 10 years. So if your child is eight, they'll be voting age the next time that the census is taken So It seems like a logical thing to do, But it's going to get challenged in court. There's no doubt about it. And the question is. How do you make an accurate count of that? How do you accurately count the number of people in the country illegally? This, of course, is going to become one of those big racial issues and I I don't think that it should. But there's no doubt that it's going to But I've always thought we do a bad job off, making a distinction between legal and illegal immigration, which is what clouds the waters on the issue.

Hospitals across Texas prepare to hit capacity amid virus surge
"19 continues to surge in parts of the country. Texas is one hot spot. The number of people hospitalized in that state has doubled in the last two weeks in Houston, officials say hospitals are one or two weeks away from being totally overwhelmed. Harris County Judge Lena Hidalgo joins us Now She is the chief executive for the county, which includes Houston, and which has by far the most covert cases in the steak. Welcome. Thank you so much for having me, Jeremy. Well, and we've been reading about hospitals close to reaching capacity more than 80% full, not just running out of beds but running out of healthy staff as well. They've been tightening the criteria for who gets Admitted which, of course, can be dangerous for the patients who have to be sent home Now you have said people should not wait to take drastic action. There should be another stay at home order. Now. Is anyone listening to you? Yes, I know. We had a stay home order. Initially back in March and folks work together incredibly well, the community came together We flatten the curb and before we had a chance. For the curve to come down on the other side, 10 20% of peak as they did in other communities and other nations. The state opened up when they did that They took away my authority to institute those kinds of orders. And so now all I can do is recommend. I've put the community on our level one Threat alert and the recommendation under that threat level is to stay home. Now. The sense we have folks are to some extent listening, but obviously not to the degree that they would if this was in order, this was a requirement. So that's why I've been advocating with the governor for that authority of for him to do that within. You know, Harris County well, and the governor did change his mind on masks, and he has now said that you have to wear a mask in Texas and counties where there's a certain number of cases, but what has, he said? You about the idea of another stay at home order. It's an ongoing conversation. We've been in contact throughout. This whole process early on when he first re opened, folks said, is too fast what he thinks. My sense was always It seems to me it's to class. But we don't know for sure. Let's try and make it work. And right now, you know, the months have gone by and what we've seen is that the communities that re opened later are the ones that aren't seeing the second resurgence. And if we just Keep going the past we're going eventually. We're gonna have to institute something of a stay home order and we put folks in the worst position economically, if we don't have a sustainable co existing relationship with the virus. A lot of people would point to the fact that the number of deaths in Harris County is just around for 100 relatively low, considering the number of cases just by comparison, New York City has had more than 18,000 deaths from Cove in 19 1st of all. Are you worried you're going to get two numbers like that? And secondly, are the economic effects of a shutdown. In some ways more devastating than the deaths at least that you're seeing so far. This is such an uncertain buyers were all learning so you can never discount you know whether we would get to that kind of a death rate. Of course. Right now it is relatively low. The issue is, though, and you mentioned at the top of the show is when your you goes from being 15% cove it 40 50% Cove it you're having to turn people away who probably shouldn't be turned away. I mean, if you if you end up a nice to you, you want the best treatment possible, and there could come a point in which We can't sustain the strokes the heart attacks on dialysis, pregnant women who need to give birth, so it's not assisting of a long term strategy. What is this thing of a long term strategy is to bring the curve down. Have that pain of course of the shutdown, but then reopens more sustainably. And for the longer term, that's what we have to keep in line. But I do think it's important also to take a step back and think about what we're doing here. What we're saying is that it's okay for hospitals to be stretched thin doctors, nurses and for people to fill those hospital bed, a reputable damage to those spokes. And just not the way we should be thinking about human life. The

I had a question today from someone about who should be getting tested right now, and it's not I, think a simple question as it sounds like because we're also hearing stories of still complications in getting tests, and then getting results so taking all of that together who are the people that should be going out getting tested at this point, and what's going on with testing in general at least from the county's point of view. At this point, we still have the capacity to test. WHOEVER NEEDS A test? We're not at a point where we're having to say only.

"Us now doctor who shot. He's the executive director for Harris County. Texas public health which includes Houston doctor. Thank you for joining US Harris County the third largest county in in the country, and it's now a corona virus hotspot population obviously. How bad is it on the ground right now where you are? Jake, first of all thanks for having me and let me let me answer that in a couple of ways wine. Is that obviously when you see and hear the numbers that we're we're you know we're seeing? But also what? You just brought up. Our concern is really very much about the numbers are one thing, but really it's. It's how busy the system is throughout whether it's the healthcare system as you just mentioned on the top of the hour here or if it's really what we're seeing in the community with folks that are really trying to get tested. We have seen an increase in everything, and that's what really concerns us. The Houston Mayor says the city needs to move quickly to slow this explosion of new cases. What needs to happen right now. To make sure that happened, so it doesn't get any worse. Well, as you know, Jake we as a community, did a fantastic job of fighting this pandemic early, and and all of our numbers show that case rates, death rates, etc, and now what we've seen since the reopening occurred starting may first and as you know other reopening was from the state side of of what they had decided how they had decided things. We're going to reopen. Since that period of time we've seen increases in cases and hospitalizations and the key masters that were saying is that we need to make sure that as things reopen and. You see three or four weeks later a few weeks later that you start to see the impact of the reopening now when you dial back, it's going to take a few weeks so for you to start to see. has there been an impact of that dampening back or that? Dial back and that's what we're really concerned about, is that have we already set this in motion that it's going to be too late to get all that we don't think so. We hope that we still have that opportunity as a community if we all. All do the right things. Stay home as our county executive judge Dala go on Friday. Raise the level of alert to read stay home if you don't need to go out certainly aware the face coverings, and do all the things, but stay out of those big crowds and social distancing is absolute, must and certainly testing the aspect of the final aspect that we WANNA. Make sure that people don't guess they take the test that we can. We can certainly know who's positive in our community. That's our best chance to get out of this. I want to share the rate of new cases in Texas because the rise is really dramatic just a few weeks ago. Texas seemed to gets to plateau holding steady at fewer than two thousand new cases a day, and now there's just this massive spike. What happened? Well I. Think I just said it was reopening. And what? I call the layering effect you layered reopening on top of holidays, milestone events, Mother's Day and Memorial Day weekend. You had the protests here. At least in in Houston on top of that graduations you had all sorts of activities that occurred. People layered back onto their normal activities as well as additional activities, and that's when you started to see the increase. I'm glad that the governor. Governor and the state have dialed back, but we are very concerned that urban communities such as Houston and obviously Harris. County, here also Austin and San Antonio in Dallas. We've got to make sure that we have those tools available to us, so we can find that in different than the other two hundred and fifty such counties in Texas so it has to be looked at differently in those urban communities as it is those rural jurisdictions. All right Dr Marcia. Thank you so much and best of luck with this as Houston goes through this. Horrific

"On the mask order after governor Abbot had initially blocked. Harris County's previous mask ordered. The county went some weeks without any mandate like that in place then last week, when bear county established a business mask order like the one that's now in effect in Harris County the governor said that was fine, and that it was always an option under his reopening plan. Did you know that and if so was reason why? This wasn't instituted any any sooner? I. Mean I I was happy to to find out about that from the governor, and from Bear County judge. So as soon as we learned that dot was a tool, we rushed to implement it, and and my approach has been. You know every tool in the toolbox. That's why we have our army of contact tracers folks going into nursing homes all the testing we can do. you know ability for first responders and others who have the virus and don't want to get their their family member sick to be able to quarantine somewhere else, and then also you know as soon as this became an option. We headed out within two days. So what was your impression up to that point that it was not an option. Right I mean I think that generally that was that was. Everybody sends. I don't think any of us were holding back. Because we you know we. We didn't want to use the tool that was at our disposal, and so for me. It's it's available, so let's go implemented and move on and get it done now. The clock is ticking, and we're running out of time, and someone asked me yesterday you know. Is it enough and? It may not be I. think it more likely than not if it's not enough rate of places when they've in us to and we've had just letting the curve. It wasn't simply you know wearing face covering, so it's something that we have got to do. And I'm so glad to have received positive response from the business community. That's very telling, and it's very important, but I really want to urge folks as we see those hospitalization numbers. Numbers climb that we've got to minimize contact and we should not be participating in inactivity that bring us in in a group setting with people that are not our family. Even you know sitting near folks that are not your family. It's just a very bad idea right now. If you're walking by folks shopping for something quickly, you know getting get out. That's fine, but other than that musk no mask. We need to be minimized contacts. We. Have folks waiting to chat with you? So why don't we dive into questions? We'll start with Carol in southeast Houston Carol. What's your question? We want to know with all the precautions that math and everything else. social as much as they can distance, when will we be able to go into a library and use their facilities? At what point do you feel, judge? That we can. As a public go to our public libraries here in Houston. Thank you for that question. Yeah, right now we're doing you know curbside pickup at the library and you know there is there. Is Wifi available from the library that folks who really need it? If they need to go, use it. It's available in the parking lot It does pain me that folks can't go inside and use the library and we're looking into that every day with the Public Health Department and the committee. We have at the county to look at re entry and. And continuity of operations, frankly right now as things are getting more and more difficult. I don't envision it being you know. Everything is headed in the wrong direction, and so let's open more things up. At least some part of the county I don't see it happening until we're on the other side of this spike and look someone who loves books in grew up going to libraries and I stand what a challenge this is! I also don't want to be in a position where. In the county that are contributing to to the spread of the virus, and are you know public health advisors just don't feel comfortable with that just yet, but certainly as soon as we can, we will make that available. All right thanks very much for that call. Let's go next to Liz in Cyprus Liz. What's your question? My question is at the tax office for commercial titles. I heard that you could do it on the computer. And someone said it was only for new club card. Do you know that? and. He had so I know that there are some very limited things that you can do from a computer, because for whatever reason you know I it. You have to see you. It's very narrow and I'm afraid. I don't know whether this is one of them so I will tell you. They're taking all the precautions for folks that do have to visit her. There are some folks for example that just do not have a computer.

We'll take down your your contact info and we can pass that along to to the county judge. Let's go next to Lewis in west Houston Louis. What's your question? Yes Oh. I'm wondering why the United States. We cannot provide healthcare at the local level as we provide schools, elise water sewer so on and so forth. Why don't we just provide healthcare? You know in in district similar to school district. You have any any Fox on that. Judge Vogel. He, you know this crisis has really exposed the challenges in our. System and we talk to our CEO the Harris Health System the public health system and You know they're really bearing the brunt of cases there icy are very much. You know near full, and and just on a normal day. That's almost where they are. So it's it's. It's it's difficult. We see the mortality rates being disparate Just the impact that this has on different communities. There's many reasons for that. You know one big reason why the healthcare system is underfunded is the the lack of Medicaid expansion in Texas you know those are millions and millions of dollars each year that we don't get in terms of just the structure of how healthcare is provided You know I think if we had additional dollars. Certainly, we'd be able to have more services more clinics. This kind of thing one thing to keep in mind those by the time people make it to the hospital. It's almost too late and so that's why we we've been focused in Harris. County already on sort of health more broadly, not just healthcare investing in healthy food initiative like farmers, markets, and in investing in understanding the. The disparity mental health environmental issues made a historic investment on on environmental monitoring and going after bad actors in that sense, because ultimately that's what contributes to these health outcomes, so we've definitely have a long way to go. Unfortunately whether you look upstream issues or whether you look at the actual healthcare issues it does come down to an underinvestment and part of it is made it. Medicaid and part of it is just a lack of emphasis. From the highest levels of government on public health and on healthcare, This is Houston matters. I'm Craig Cohen. We're talking with Harris. County Judge.

"In Harris County the third judge yeah and this isn't just when you walk into a store anywhere in public you have to wear a mask or a thousand dollar fine yeah I that's you know that's going to be making the people that work at banks very very nervous you know because you probably everybody if you've if you're dealing with a major bank you know if you have an account with a major bank is seen the emails you get a Hey we're still open for business but but but if you can you know you gotta check deposit use the op but with the the tellers you know or at the drive through the whole thing you know kind of limit the exposure if you can but I can't imagine being a teller at a bank or anybody that's working at a bank I just walked watching everybody that walks in right now has a mask you know I mean it's just that's got to be nerve wracking but anywhere in public in Harris County right and we're just Houston right the judge has a thousand dollar fine associated with the order she believes law enforcement will use their discretion what discretion what you gonna what you gonna let the elite rich go without wearing a mask but you're gonna find the poor person about what discretion what will you must bust anybody who's not wearing a mask public so here's my question is how much of a priority is this well you saw on Forsman officers well it's not a big one because the the police union to Middle East said now they put on official letter they put out they put out a letter and I I saw release on your television media you're telling me that they need to go after people during a pandemic right you know that this goes back to do Dallas County when the judge Jenkins there last week issued an order that if you were going to go into an essential business or on public transportation in our case it's the Dallas area rapid transit dart is the acronym if you're gonna write dark or you were going to go into the any essential business that was open essentially anything that's left open then you have to wear a mask it was to protect the employees and the work there was a thousand dollar fine attached to it the next day the county commissioners voted three to two to say now no fine you're not gonna go if you can give people a thousand dollar fine during a pandemic people are out of work people aren't you know again they're not doing well and they only have thirty four hundred dollars in the bank four six hundred dollars a week from the federal government that's not enough but but that whole idea and and I can see that the police officers we've been saying for quite a while what must be like a police officer in a parking lot at a church trying to enforce an absurd rule yeah the police union immediately came out with the public statement against it saying look we we believe people should do it but most people do it on their own and and you know the vast majority the public is cooperating and doing the right thing but we were trying to build a relationship with our with the people out there we start busting people for thousand dollar fines for not wearing a mask yeah exactly and how do you do discretion and and even even the Attorney General came out said you should use your discretion what does that mean well what is his Attorney General saying no use your discretion and don't do it or only some people with masks that don't have masks on get find out what what N. I mean everybody gonna you're gonna question I'm gonna sit them down okay well why is it that you're not we're in a mess well I I don't have it with me I forgot it work or I forgot it at home I forgot in my car or or I have I have a breeding problem but I can't wear a mask it inhibits my breathing that you know it makes me sicker how to wear a mask and I can't you know breathe properly through a mask all right you've just wasted how much time for for that officer who should be dealing with I don't know prime but this is the insanity eight to issue an advisory what the county would like everyone to know that here's why would you wear a mask I think there's a significant number of people that still don't understand why you wear a mask it's not to protect you yeah I want to bring that up because it seemed like the confusion is still out there right well wait a minute the the the original masks that that that people wear don't let the you know don't let the virus in this lets the virus in well that means that lets the virus out so what's the purpose of wearing the mask it's not about letting the virus in around it's about how far the projectiles go well it and that's it it's about protecting someone else from you if you're a symptomatic but you're carrying the disease you're protecting others from you you're trying to mitigate that basically your pre covering your mouth and your nose before you cough or sneeze right it's also not about breeding you know big because people out there saying well you can read right through there this mask and and I don't you know it's if if there's going to be I guess a role for county commissioners are judges in this case you know in the counties are mayors are the federal government you know the advisory role look this is why you wear a mask to be clear to protect others from you so you're trying to cook your eggs in case you cough or sneeze it will it will not go as far and if you're a symptomatic and carrying this disease you won't affect others there are people in those essential businesses out of respect for them how bout you wear a mask pretty simple but no we must have a heavy handed government we're wishing that the most yeah but it's a dumb rule it is so if you're on okay by the way can you golf in Harris County I don't know I'm not sure if you golf you have to wear a mask if you're out in public I if I'm if I'm not on my front lawn and everybody else is out on their front lawn doing lawn work do I have to wear a mask or will I be ticketed again I'm fine I'm fifty feet from the next person that's dumb I well I'm I'm gonna just are wearing the full Deadpool outfit the whole thing not just the mast everything I I saw somebody out and about the other day I was actually going through the drive through part of this parking lot it was a drive thru pharmacy that was attached to a grocery store so I was in the parking lot but I saw someone coming out of the store and they were wearing sunglasses and they were wearing a bandanna over their their face and they had a hoodie on because it was raining and I thought well you know mama was exactly that dissents K. or no it's just the coronavirus I mean I fully expect it to get to the absurd point of you know someone walking in it early on someone walking in a bank wearing a mask and people are like oh my gosh that person has called it no no don't worry I don't have called it I'm just here I'm just gonna commit thank Robert is a comedy bit of fast and always on real I mean seriously it is not but but again I think it's a decent practice I'm showing respect for those workers that are there here's what hit me last week maybe the week before I went into a place and that store was policy clearly that everyone all the workers wearing masks I thought okay I kind of feel you know like a like you know I'm better I'm not doing the right thing here if I walk in I should be able to at least show some respect by wearing the mask now my my lovely niece made one that's pretty great it's gone American eagle on the front of it and and did a great job she met him for the whole family and I were and I wear it when I go into business because the workers there are wearing one and it's it's the new handshake I also when I wake up when I walk in I I've said this a couple weeks ago the new handshake is also what using the sanitizer gel on your way it I mean it's it's kind of a social thing but it's it's to show respect but it's also happens to be effective and for a fundamental reason right now and I just think that when you get into the the policy the heavy policy of a Harris County or Dallas county or state of Michigan we just have to hit the brakes and say what a world we doing here I mean to what extent if you say you should wear a mask anytime you go out if you were you Donna dot you should you must wear a mask any time you go out well then don't go out the safer bet is to stay home nobody gets to go outside at all we can sit and mitigate this thing to the death of an economy but when we're talking about the greatest colony in the world when you get to that point long before you get to that point third world nations will starve people will die as a result of policy eight six six ninety right I but.
