"Larry. All across America, the Larry elder show. To you about food for the poor? Today is the last day of Larry elder's monthlong mission and generate donations for the Christian nonprofit food for the poor. I'm grateful that so many of you have stepped up to help the displaced children and families of Ukraine. And by the way, Biden has continued to shelling there on the city's despite promises to scale back. You can never trust Biden. So imagine what's happening there now. The time has really flown by this month and speaking of time, I'm about to clap, and I need you to listen very carefully. Here's the sad truth. During the time that elapsed between each of those claps, another child was displaced in Ukraine, that's about one per second and as James elder, who works with refugees and the war torn region tells us the numbers are astronomical. And when we say display, under bombardment, we're talking about boys and girls, you know, running to bunkers, no school, the lesson today is this is what an air raid sire and sounds like. Quickly, how do you bid to a banker? That's what displacement looks like. And yeah, the numbers we have not seen in living memory, not since World War II. And you've seen the human tragedy on TV news, you've read about it, and I've shared or Larry elder, I shared incredible stories of courage with you all this month on his show, but this is your final day to step up, go to Larry elder dot com. Click on the help Ukraine banner to make a generous donation or grab your credit card and call a 5 5 9 one 8 four 7 four three. That's 8 5 5 9 one 8 hope to share the love of Christ with children that are displaced in Ukraine. And thank you for joining Larry spring campaign to help food for the poor. All right, I'm speaking to my guests, Jorge benia, the media research center Latino, all things regarding the Latino vote regarding what's going on on the border. Jorge, I sent you column earlier and the basically the Biden administration is attempting to put a positive spin on dangerous enforcement guidelines through pretty unreliable data. In other words, they're fudging or manipulating the books when it comes to illegal arrest on the border. You tell us a little bit about that. Yeah, that's a pretty federalist. The Biden administration is trying to cook up the immigration statistics. The enforcement statistics in an effort to really revamp and redo enforcement. And again, open the door wide open for all kinds of immigration. Really, really clamped down and by Clinton down. I mean, bring a lax enforcement regime and that's a dangerous all around call. Yeah, I mean, they're changing the way the wording it says here, the Biden administration has published some immigration enforcement statistics, and it's ice fiscal year 2021 annual report. This was recently required by Congress and is largely a narrative driven report that provides a topical look at all part of U.S. immigration and customs enforcement from custom operations to personnel hiring an oversight process. It is significantly different from the detailed immigration and immigration enforcement focus report caught the ice enforcement and removal operations report that the agency has published by the end of every calendar year for at least the last decade with the exception of last year. As of this writing, the Biden administration has not published this very important report leading some to conclude that the data contained therein is a damning indictment of the admissions administration's enforcement policies, the recently released report does not include the many charts and tables that make up the missing enforcement report, effectively preventing the Congress, the media, and the public from analyzing the effects of the bidens administration's controversial guidelines that have severely limited the ability of ice officers to enforce immigration law. I mean, honestly, man, this is the left is going after it. They're coming at us from every which way, but I feel like this takes the cake. And please, people pray for the people in Ukraine. I feel like we're under siege right here in the United States of America. With that report shows you is that they don't want to enforce the border. They have no intention. No. If you guys administration that comes in on their very first day in power and pulls the plug on everything basically that Trump had in place in terms of border enforcement, it remained in Mexico, the third party agreements. Everything that kept the border secured title 42. And they come in for all of that. That means that they don't want to work for us. They don't want to enforce it. And like we said in the last segment, the people know it and the word is getting out and that's why you're going to see across starting over the course of the summer. And into the fall, you're going to see a crush of people trying to come into the country..

"This is the news in brief from the United Nations, almost one child per second in Ukraine is becoming a refugee of the war UN humanitarian said on Tuesday as the total number of people who have now fled the country since the Russian invasion began passed 3 million, highlighting that 9 in ten of those fleeing unrelenting violence in Ukraine are women and children, the UN Children's Fund UNICEF warned that youngsters are prey to traffickers as they arrive in unfamiliar new surroundings. The development follows a warning from the UN secretary general, who on Monday said that Russia's military offensive against civilians was reaching terrifying proportions. At Ukraine's border with neighboring countries overwhelming numbers of traumatised people have arrived, creating opportunities for criminal gangs who are known to flourish in conflicts, as UNICEF spokesperson, James elder, told journalists in Geneva. To give a sense of the border that I used to visit the main border medak, Poland, Ukraine, it is scores of people standing around buses and minivans calling out names of capital cities or at least it was a week ago and people getting on to those, the vast, vast majority, of course, are people with wonderful intentions and great generosity, but there is no doubt given what we understand of trafficking in Europe and that remains a very, very grave issue staying with Ukraine, humanitarians warned that the situation in the port city of mariupol has deteriorated further, after more heavy Russian bombardment, hundreds of thousands of people are being suffocated by a lack of supplies, and are unable to flee the city, besieged by Russian forces. The international committee of the Red Cross ICRC on Tuesday described a situation as dire and desperate, spokesperson you and Watson also confirmed that a small number of vehicles had managed to get out of Mario pole on Monday, but this was just a drop in the ocean, compared with those left behind. Amid reports that families are being forced to gather water from streams, and that fights have broken out over food, mister Watson urged the Ukrainian and Russian authorities to find a solution so that they can reach the city's people. To Myanmar, where security forces have killed at least 1600 people and detained more than 12 and a half thousand, since the military coup last year, the UN rights office said on Tuesday, in a new report warning that serious rights abuses uncovered in Myanmar may amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity, UN high commissioner for human rights, Michelle Bachelet, appealed to the international community to take concerted immediate measures to stem the spiral of violence there. The report's findings indicate that military and security forces bombarded populated areas with air strikes and heavy weapons, and deliberately targeted civilians. Many victims were shot in the head, burned to death, arbitrarily arrested, tortured or used as human shields, said UN rights office spokesperson ravina shamdasani. Mass killings have taken place in July in sagang region, soldiers killed 40 individuals in a series of raids. Villagers found the remains of some victims with their hands and feet still tied behind their backs. At least 440,000 others have been displaced since the military takeover on the 1st of February 2021, the UN report said, a further 14 million are in need of urgent humanitarian assistance, but 8 deliveries have been largely blocked by the military in new and preexisting areas of need. It noted. Daniel Johnson, you.

"This is an academy with UN news, amid growing international condemnation over Russia's military offensive in Ukraine, tens of thousands of people are still trying to escape to neighboring countries fleeing amass. This has brought huge numbers to the western Ukrainian city of lviv, where UN Children's Fund spokesperson James elder has been giving an update on the emotional intense scenes he's witnessed to UN uses Daniel Johnson. Remains a sea of great sadness and stress, just thousands upon thousands of people fleeing, continued air raid sirens now, obviously escalation of fighting and all other parts of the country, another night of kids in bunkers, another night of parents under enormous stress. We know children are being killed in this. We know they've been injured and we know that many, many are being traumatized and the only way for this to stop is for the conflict to stop. And what are you seeing in terms of the human stories we understand that very few men leaving the country, but how about the mothers and children and all the others? It's got gut wrenching. It's just enough a dozen of just forced farewells. I mean, I've spoken to literally more than a hundred people. Every one of them is pretty much the same. There is a father there, normally with them, farewelling them, sitting down, trying to explain to his 8 year old son or 12 year old daughter. Why dad's leaving, then a farewell between husband and wife. And then the tears and stress that follow, they may have been in a bunk of the night before, they probably on the road for two days, train station here in Levi for 12 hours. It's freezing. It's been snowing. They've had to make that final decision as a woman said to me, she's a physiotherapist. No one wants to leave. She just said, James, I am at a point where every decision is so critical. I fear if I get one wrong, I will no longer be able to make them for my family. So her and her daughter had decided decided to leave another young girl said she was 7 and she explained through her mom who had good English that there were rats in her bank account, but her mom had said, well, that's okay. There's no bombs. These are the conditions people are in. The level of stress and sadness is on par with any crisis that we keep having to face. Yeah, and of course, we've had reports from the UN Children's Fund executive director Catherine Russell reporting on hospitals, schools, water and sanitation facilities, even orphanages under fire, so the psychological stress must be dreadful. Well, exactly. The executive director spoke exactly to that, the reports of those key places orphanages, schools, hospitals, all under fire, families are running out of places to go. 500, 600, 660,000 now across the borders. The support of every day Ukrainians has been immense. I see women on the street on the roads. You know, cooking food for people. I see 15 year old girls having baked and that's at least a bright moment, albeit the only ones you'll see when they tap on a window of a car to the frozen family inside and offer them something something warm. I see people at train station and say, look, you've been here for 12 hours. Can offer you a bed. You know, you're coughing. Do you need some medicine? Whatever it may be. So there's a huge amount of support and I think we're seeing that in border countries too, but the demand is fast outstripping any type of supply. So what can UNICEF actually do on the ground? What's your mission today? What's the first thing you're doing right now? First and foremost, it's support for those people at the border. We've got trucks arriving into Poland. Emergency healthcare emergency education. You've mentioned trauma several times. It's spot on. We know what can be done there. We have child protection teams on both sides of the conflict lines in the east. They're helping children who have suffered abuse or violence. These are critical critical elements and that lifesaving humanitarian support that was UNICEF's focus in the east. We now try to spread that across the country. That's very difficult. We need humanitarian lines to stay open, but echoing the secretary general first and foremost as we massively ramp up the humanitarian response, we need the we need the fighting to stop..

"This is the news in brief from the United Nations. Another shameful milestone has been reached in the conflict in Yemen, with 10,000 children killed or maimed since fighting started in March 2015, the United Nations Children's Fund sent on Tuesday. In an appeal to all parties to the conflict to stop the violence UNICEF maintained that Yemen is already the most dangerous place in the world to be a child, but now it's getting even worse. In addition to the protracted conflict spokesperson James elder has said that additional threats to people included economic devastation, social services on the brink of collapse at a critical lack of funding for emergency aid. Now, current funding levels and without an end to fighting UNICEF simply can not reach all these children. There's no way to say this simply without international support, more children, those who bear absolutely no responsibility for this conflict will die. According to UNICEF, more than 11 million children need humanitarian assistance in Yemen, and 1.7 million have been internally displaced 400,000 now suffer from severe acute malnutrition and more than 2 million out of school. To continue its lifesaving work until mid 2022, UNICEF urgently needs $235 million. This will help to support treatment of severe acute malnutrition in 4000 primary healthcare facilities, and 130 therapeutic feeding centers among other projects. To T gray now where further details have emerged of deadly air strikes in the regional capital Michele on Monday, at a regular briefing in Geneva, spokesperson for the UN humanitarian coordination office archer. He ends Lake, cited local health workers, who reported that three children had been killed, and one person injured in one air strike on the outskirts of Michele. The second air strike in micheli town reportedly injured 9 and caused damage to houses and a nearby hotel, mister lackey said. This is certainly not something that we have seen in Michael Tam. This is an intensification and escalation. As you know, Michele is a downward of about half a million people. And a high concentration also of humanitarian staff. So that is a very worrying development. And of course, our main concern is that civilians have been killed. This is essentially populated area. Mister Lake reminded all parties to the conflict of their obligations under international humanitarian law to protect civilians and civilian infrastructure. He also repeated the UN's call for unrestricted and sustained humanitarian access to all people in need of supplies, fuel cash and other support. Aid efforts have been scaled up to South Sudan where unrelenting rains and flooding have affected 700,000 people, principally in four states. In an alert on Tuesday, UN refugee agency, UNHCR said that homes have been swept away and fills inundated while families and livestock have been forced to seek safety on higher ground. In upper Nile state alone around a thousand people walked for 7 days to reach molar town, women, children and elderly people arrived exhausted and hungry, some had not eaten in days, the agency said, is UNHCR representative Arafat Jamal speaking from Juba. The approach of the water is relentless. And it's different from other years in the intensity and the frequency with which it falls. What you have on the ground is that often an area that may have been parched and in a state of drought is suddenly inundated because the water is coming from far afield. And you go from a situation of proud to floods in an instant. UNHCR expressed concern for people who have been marooned on islands surrounded by water, sheltering under trees and unable to cross swollen rivers to safety. The agency also noted that the flooding crisis will cause new vulnerability as entire planting seasons are lost, and herds of cattle are drowned. Katie dartford, UN news..

"Welcome to day forty of the lockdown here in Malaysia. And last night I was listening to an instagram live. I think was by James Alter now. If you don't know James I'll put a link to him in the comments below. You should go and check him out. He's kind of Kooky crazy cat but he comes up with some really really interesting perspectives in. Id's and last night. One of the ones that he came up with was his idea of ideas six. Now it's nothing really rude. It's kind of exactly what it sounds like. It's basically taking a couple of ideas together and mating them together in seeing what comes out of it. So let's play a little game where we do a bit of ideas six with a couple of ideas one that I've had one that I think I got from Gary a check. I had this idea while ago that it might be interesting to have a network a social network I guess of people around the world who are the same age in the same age bracket maybe sort of three to five years like a tight age bracket so then you could get real perspectives at a global scale from specific age groups. Now what could be done with that not sure? I just thought it would be really interesting thing. Now let's say that idea. This idea of a network of people of the same age got together with Gary Vantage idea of. I think he called it. The Tuesday club where on the second Tuesday of every month a group of like minded people small group locked themselves away for a day and basically just shoot the shit throw. Id's around talk about problems shoes and see what comes out of it. So if those two ideas had idea sakes you would potentially have this network of people that are exempt within the same age group. Just a couple of years and they getting together locally and local outcrops every second. Tuesday of every month. Now the sort of information that would come out of a meeting like that would be super valuable. I think to anybody who is selling products or services targeted to that particular group so you would find product companies and service companies. It would be happy to sponsor it. They'd be definite revenue model in there. The data coming out of that I think would be truly interesting. Truly unique and also you made me find. These people are really solving problems for their age bracket for their age group in the locality. And if you replicated that around the world you'd have a bunch of people solving problems for the people that would just be an example off one way that you could have idea six. Obviously the more ideas you have running around in your little idea bedroom. The more the more ideas sex you can have. And if we're GONNA CONTINUE THE ANALOGY. It can just be casual. Id Six long lasting relationship idea six. It can just be a one night stand of ideas just to see what comes out of that particular idea and if it doesn't work everybody moves on no harm. No foul so there. It is slightly. Kooky crazy ideas from James elder to go and check him out. What ideas six are you gonNA have? And what ideas are gonNA come out of your ID. Six what progeny is going to be produced from your idea six or that is it for today. I do thank you for your time and I will be back again tomorrow so yeah..

That's great news. But of course, when you've lost much bid loss times when I've saying literally, they livelihood scattered across the crossing front of them, and they law schools and health Santa's then a middle that you'll lose claim water.

I think people jaded by the cheer mounts and stress and enormity of the crisis hitting, but as the secretary general said this line is another alarm bell about the dangers of climate change. And we also have to realize that these people in Mozambique Imbaba on allowing done the lace tool to that climate and yet they're suffering.

Thankfully, have have recited but of tolls the distress native as hottest hits hasn't. So sometimes the media attention dozen media attention for an organization like UNICEF because as I say moms and dads in everyday critical at ASA port, which is why programmes critical, but I think big governments around the world understand that supporting people in places like knows ambiguous is right in practice and principle, we know that offer climatic horror show like this you need to support is people.
