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.

"We can get through anything. Oh, that's wonderful. Okay? Now the rent toll the rental hit is a thriller slash horror, so I was inspired by my own paranoia about the concept of home, sharing and just thinking about how. You know the country is as divided as it's ever been, and no one trust each other yet we trust staying in the home of the stranger, simply because of a few positive reviews online. Oh, that's tasty idea and like the reality is like. Wow, we are the movie. There were articles coming out every week about homeowners with hidden cameras in their. Houses so much. Yes, exactly on the flip side. You don't know who you're renting, too. So what's keeping someone from renting a place making copies of the key and coming back at a later date, and so you're, it's all these things that were aware of but like that being said I still use all of the home sharing apps, and in fact I was staying in an Airbnb while filming this movie. Sure and I guess it. It was like just trying to understand that. Disconnect where it's like why. Why do we subject ourselves to these situations? Knowing that we're potentially put ourselves in harm's way and I think it's because we even though we know the risks. We don't actually think anything bad is going to happen to us. It's all cost benefit. All of us know that your odds of died in a car crash or certainly higher than certain viruses we would. We liked driving in a car. I. Don't WanNa. Walk Across town, and it's like well if I like it and I've deemed that I need to do this then I really just file all the risk in another compartment of my hat, definitely definitely, and and what I will say is since filming the movie. My Paranoia has reached new peaks where. When I stay in a rental home now I'm not thinking or their cameras here.

"That means a lot. It's been an interesting path, and so basically after lake ten years, my brother came to me with disaster artist, and it finally felt like the right timing. It felt like the right project in of right dynamic for us to act opposite each other. And I knew we would have fun and that we would work well together because we do have similar sensibilities, and it ended up being one of the most rewarding experiences I've had. You know as an actor because I can I just be narcissistic for a second. I have the same thing with my wife. When I have put her in things I've directed. I've done it with this. Great fear that people are GONNA go up. She had to do her. Husband is favor of being in this movie She's bigger than this movie. And that was a huge voice in my head, and then I just had to keep measuring against the joy of the experience of working with a sure, and then ultimately just going like Oh. fucking shut up about the other thing. You love working with this person, do it. Yeah, I mean not to get too heavy about it, but it's like the people who know you guys. They know what's going on. They know that you guys are equals. Sure an all chronic, would we? Still Rolling on. Hold on hold on. Yes they are. Stressful. Really. About The, thank. Perfectly Dave, so what I will say, just I guess to transition back to this movie. Directed is yet because you did the same thing with Allison. Yes, exactly from the beginning. I actually didn't intend on directing this film Oh really I wrote it with a friend, but at that time I was going to act in it, and as much as I wanted allison to be a part of it. It felt a little awkward, because if we were both in it together, he would have been playing my sister-in-law, so that felt weird. Oh. Ah, but when I decided to direct it. I thought it would be smart just to focus on everything behind the camera. Good time for voice crack. Just knowing how much I felt really good about it, I. Nothing Freudian about where it's so obviously when when I was in acting in it anymore with the first person I went to and I'm so happy played out the way it did, because like I've always known how good of an actress she is, but like when I was in that position where I was able to just Kinda like watch her intently for five straight weeks. I, just realized how special she is where she has this this ability to balance like heavy drama with moments of Levity, sometimes within a single scene, and just like watching her seamlessly navigate back and forth between these conflicting emotions. It's like only a handful of people can do it as this. Can I honestly could not have done this without her and like people during the press Jonky like a lot of people have been a little tentative asking you know. How was it working with your wife?.

The parent they thought the kid had been too scared, but sure kids like bean scared. The biggest takeaways you you look at the cards and you see what is like overwhelmingly on multiple cards and Louis yes. Yes, but I do think about you know you hear stories about projects like McBride's foot fist way which tested like shits and you almost understand because. Is this outside the box project that people don't even know what they're thinking when they're watching. Because it feels so unique, yes, or idiosyncrasy I don't think ever broke thirty like. 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..

It's not nothing we've hit the skids a couple of Times Belen I. There's something really disheartening about being in this for four months now and it feeling worse than ever. Where at one point, who was like it felt like we were actually going in the right direction, and now it just feels all for nothing so I. Guess we're just trying to poke the things we can control and keep our heads down and try to be productive now. Is your movie the rental coming out in theaters? Yes, weirdly enough. We're coming out in in a bunch of drive ins, and then select theaters throughout the country like standard theaters, someone who has spent two years of my life a couple times making movies, yeah. I can't imagine two years and then the finish line. No one can go see a movie so yeah I have a lot to say about this. I mean it feels like uniquely penalizing to you. Well okay, so the end of the story is I think it's all good so I'm just GonNa start off with that, but you know we're obviously living in a different world, people are finding new ways to release their films and I do feel really lucky that I paired up with IFC who really has been thinking outside.

You've got this our book of what are the comics. That are that are out right now that you really want people to pick up and I'm sure you're like everything I've ever done. But what would you say like? Hey pick this up a really proud of it. This is my ideal Yeah go SANAL is one of those things that that and yeah you're right. The answer. Is Everything pick up everything? I've ever But THE GO. Al is definitely one of those things. I'm really proud of. It was a true collaboration with Sarah. Richard and her art records just phenomenal. You know she does. He painted fully illustrated pages. When we conceived of the idea. You know it was me basically begging her. Why do you not have a book with als? Because you do these beautiful paintings of and she goes. Well I'm not really a writer you know and I'm like I will write whatever you want type thing. And and uh she's like well. I don't really like doing panels if we're going to do our own book and I'd like to do something a little different. And and she did these full page illustrations and I said I will. I can write that you know so that one. I'm super proud of We we are working on another project together that that I'm not allowed to talk about but it. I'm super excited about with her. Then get to work with her again. so. I can't wait for that to come out because that's that's even more unique In terms of being being from me an artwork from her So that and and Right now on my on my patriot. Have a book called Fox that evil that I'm working on that I'm doing between things so it's not something that I'm I'm putting out on a regular basis is just whenever I get like five pages together putting out Taryn and eventually I'm going to be putting up on comics and eventually if I get enough pages I'll I'll put it out in print but you know mind is kind of always going and was working on something so even when I'm not working on something that I'm getting paid to do from. Dc Year somebody else. My head is full of stories and Ann Arbor on constantly struggling to get to every day. So you're you mentioned your patriotic. Is that specific specifically for ghost on all or is it your patriots on no my Patriot? Yeah Okay so tell people what they do is it just patron dot com slash. Franco slept FRANKEN underscore. I think but you can search it as you know. Franko it'll it'll come up far. Franz Oh so patriots on Dot Franko and it's just Doing a a weekly one page story that I'm writing along with my son but I'm doing the artwork with and I'm trying different things like I'm using photograph backgrounds of manipulating them with some art stuff. So that's been kind of fun to explore with some doing one page up on Patriots. This absolutely free to read. You could go up there once a week and read the new page. The Fox of evil is behind the pay wall. So you know if you WANNA give a couple of bucks as a donation type thing you can. You can read all the all that stuff up there the Fox and evil stuff The there's constantly stuff that's going on. You know that that we're looking to do for comics and and other stuff is just The problem and it's not a problem at all. This is just being really sarcastic in trying to be funny but you know the they keep paying me to do stuff you know so It's it's that's taking away from the crater on stuff that I wanna do but it's not A. It's not a bad problem to have you know right getting paid by DC. To do these other books. And I'm like okay. I'll put this on hold but here an in-between things. I'll get a couple of pages or something so I'm still able to do it very cool. So our during this time. Are you taking commissions at all I have taken a few currently not because I do have a shortlist of commissions to that I I open up every once in a while right. Now it's full and the other thing that a lot of people don't know about me is that I'm a fulltime high school art teacher so that's taking up a good amount of my time now that we're doing this distance learning here in New York It's proving to be a little bit more challenging than actually being in the classroom with the kids so It's been taking up a lot of time Over the last couple of weeks. Yeah Here's a little something people don't know about me. I'm a college professor. I have talked about this before. Yeah yeah so I do understand. Although I was in a unique position win this all hit. I'm teaching online this semester. So literally all the people in the business department were scrambling trying to figure out what to do. And I went okay. I'll send an email so it helps. I do feel your pain so okay Franko now. This is going to be a hard question for you. Well here here's why it's hard you do so many folks. This is your dream convention. Who are you most excited to meet other than me? Okay all right I was gonna I was gonNA say right So it's it's it could be anybody even somebody that doesn't seem to conventions Were living dead to Ooh no. Let's not do that. 'cause then that opens up too many possibilities okay. Let's yeah let's stick to now the Aaron now if it were here now and if it were today I would like to try and meet and not just a photo op. But I'd like to try and sit and talk for at least maybe ten minutes I think would be Steven Spielberg. He's he's one of my idols from from way back. And Luckily at one point in my career got to meet George Lucas and that was an absolute thrill for me So yes Steven. Spielberg would be the other guy my on my bucket list and I would. I would love to meet him and just talk to him About you know the process and work and all that other stuff when it one of the fun things for me was I got to meet Frank Miller at a at a convention at a party and I was able to to kind of alone with him for a few minutes. I got to talk to him. Not so much about comics but about About movies and directing at the things. You've got to do so. That was like a big thrill for me. And like I said talking to George Lucas and the other one would be Spielberg. I think would be the other one. Yeah that sounds awesome in fact I had invited. We used to do a live show at the blue box cafe in Elgin blue box and I actually sent a request to George Lucas people because he was living here in Chicago. I said Hey I think he dig it. We don't have to interview him. I'm just inviting him down and I did get a response. They said he he can't they said He. He wants to walk into a blue box cafe. Doctor who themed cafe watching a podcast about nerd stuff he would be mobbed while yeah and I was like. Oh so close. That would have been great to sit down with him and Spielberg. I think would be definitely on my list. Have you seen the movie five? Twenty five seventy seven. I have not okay. I'M GONNA make a high recommendation to you and everybody listening it's you. I don't know if you can get it online or anywhere as of right now. I don't think it's been released publicly. But they do screenings around the country. The it's it's five. Twenty five seventy seven by Patrick. Read Johnson. It's a movie about the summer. That Star Wars came out. It's his true story and there is a bomb. Sent him out to California because he wanted to be a filmmaker and he ended up meeting George Lucas and seeing this stuff before star wars came out. He comes back and he's telling friends like wait till you see this. And everyone looked at him like he's nuts and but there is a great spielberg part in it he gets Spielberg. And it's it's crazy 'cause he was obsessed with Spielberg yes. Yeah I seen a couple of those different documentary and they were very much in that group of they would go to different sets like George. Lucas would come to the set of One of his movies and he would go and see the star wars stuff and and they would go to Francis Ford Coppola set about when he was doing something so it was very much you know. They were very in tune with each other so it. It's kind of cool to see that process and I don't think that really exists much anymore in Hollywood the time before that the the golden era of Hollywood. And then there's this this section in the middle with those guys Where they would be all kind of like you know You know palling around. And they all came together type thing and I don't really think that exists much more any anymore. I think the closest you have might be Tarantino. Robert Rodriguez right. They seem to be pretty tight for a while and they seem to be involved into those projects a lot but I agree with you so okay. We're going to shift gears. Because that was I went off on a tangent there. We mentioned different ways to support comic shops. What do you think all these kinds canceling? What what would you say is the best way to support creators? During this pandemic He s parting. Creators is is Is An easy thing to do. You know they're they're Oliver Social Media. If you like them you can follow them. If you don't know how to follow them you can find out easily enough Find out if they have a commission list Gracious enough to ask me about mining. I do have one. But it's it's full. I take a limited amount because of all the other work that I'm doing but Yeah find out if they have a commission lists find out if You know you can get a piece from them or or by some of their original artwork from from books and stuff like that You know you tend to get online and you see these prices that Jim Lee guests for his pieces. And you're like oh I'm never gonNA be able to afford that but there's other artists out there that that you know are pretty reasonable and you can search him out and helped them out 'cause Unfortunately for for a lot of artists conventions are a big part of their their salary and Not having them now. It looks like you know maybe through September and beyond is is going to be real big hit for the industry although all around is starting to show trying to draw people to these creators to find ways to support them however we can so great answer man.
