The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to be the 86th attorney general of the United States. Judge Garland I wanna welcome you and your family. I want to welcome you back to the Senate Judiciary Committee. I know this return trip. It's been a long time and planning on you're here. Finally, this will be the Judiciary Committee's first hearing of the 117th Congress. Before I turned to my opening remarks. I'd like to just take a few minutes to make some Acknowledgments. I want to welcome my friend, Senator Chuck Grassley as the committee's ranking member. When I first came on the Senate Judiciary Committee 24 years ago, I was the ranking member on subcommittee with you, and we dealt with the issue of bankruptcy. Now Illinois and Iowa sit next to each other. And so did Urban Grassley. We have our differences. But Senator Grassley and I have worked together on important legislation over the years, most recently on criminal justice and sensing reform. I look forward to continuing that work in this Congress. I want to recognize the outgoing chair and ranking member Senator Lindsey Graham, who will join us remotely this morning, and Senator Dianne Feinstein. Senator Graham, as is true of Senator Grassley. Well, we don't always agree, has always been a welcome partner on many issues. Including one of the most challenging issues, immigration, Senator Feinstein. I want to come in for leading the committee Democrats with Grace and resolved over the past four years. I know she will continue to be an important voice on this committee on a host of issues, including in her new capacity as the chair of the Human Rights and Laws subcommittee, which I was proud to charity and past Congresses. I also want to welcome our new committee members who either be here in person. I see one in person and one probably remote senators Padilla And also on the Democratic side, Senator Cotton on the Republican side. I look forward to working with each of you. There's some historic first in the Judiciary Committee this year, Senator Padilla, our new senator from California, will be chairing the subcommittee on immigration, citizenship. Border safety. I'm honored that he's the first Latino senator to chair that subcommittee, and we look forward to his leadership. Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey will chair the subcommittee on criminal justice and counter terrorism. He's the first Black senator to chair a judiciary subcommittee. And we could not imagine a better choice at the helm of this particular subcommittee to all of our other members who are returning to serve on the committee. Welcome back. I want to thank all the committee members for agreeing to hold this committee hearing and vote on Judge Garland's nomination. It is a great honor to serve on this committee. The Senate established the Judiciary Committee by resolution on December 10th 18 16, making it among the very first standing committees of the Senate. This committee has seen many consequential debates and approved many important nominations and landmark legislation in the committee's history. There has only been one prior Illinois senator to serve his chair Judge Garland Lyman. Trumbull, who led the committee from 18 61 to 18 72, and during his term of service was a Democrat, a Republican, a radical Republican and a Democrat. Again. He was the most bipartisan senator, you could imagine His tenure was also distinguished by passage. Of historic legislation, the 13th 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution. The Freedman's bureau acts of 18 65 and 18 66 Civil Rights Act of 18 66. The last of these was introduced by Trumbull ultimately became the nation's first civil rights law. As chair, Trumbull saw a nation torn apart by original sin slavery and widespread violence and injustice that continued even after the 13th amendments. Passage is African Americans throughout the nation face race. System. Our nation is still dealing with the consequences of these injustices. People of color face systemic racism, and we're still working to rid this nation of the horrific legacy of slavery and Jim Crow. This committee could make a difference. We have the jurisdiction and the opportunity to do it through legislation, oversight and nominations, including this nomination of Merrick Garland to service our nation's next attorney general. There have been few moments in history where the role of attorney general and the occupant of That post It mattered more Judge Garland should you be confirmed, and I have every confidence you will be. You'll oversee a Justice Department at an existential moment. After four tumultuous years of intrigue, controversy and brute political force, the future of the department is clearly in the hands of the next attorney general Under attorney general Sessions and successor Bill Bar. The Justice Department literally became an arm of the White House committed to advancing the interest. The President Trump his family and his political allies. It came as little surprise then that the U. S Department of Justice became the Trump Department of Justice General Bar stated clearly that he believed the attorney general was the president's lawyer, not the nations. And what were the results too many in the department's senior roles cast aside the rules law trump appointees in the apartment sidelined career public servants from Lyon attorneys, two FBI agents Limited their roles disregarded their nonpartisan input override, overriding their professional judgment and falsely accusing them of being members of the

So what the Supreme Court said? No, you gotta look at consequences. Well, so outcomes are as just important just as important job. As intent that's one way another way of these educational disparities. If there is a correlation roughly hewn between what kind of education you have and what kind of money you make then it would behoove us to enforce certain educational practices that pay attention to the least of these and if the tax base is the determinant for education and so many Iraq owes then the government which has been a beneficiary of and it you know of a kind of you know, Jim Crow approach an apartheid racially speaking in the law passed to you know, fill its coffers for white education vs. Black one then we owe some money toward those people who are at the bottom of the totem pole and then figuring out what kind of jobs and job-training could help black and Indigenous and Latin X people to get higher up on the totem pole. Those are a few things that can be done and stop the voter suppression. That would be Huge thing that now those things get fought in courts, but they can also the Attorney General can have engagement with these issues on local municipalities and finally in terms of leasing, you know, under Obama Eric Holder and then Loretta Lynch, but especially Eric Holder was talking about these consent decrees and looking at these police departments and it's another thing to be done again. So look at them cuz police departments are extracting all kinds of monies. Look at Ferguson, Missouri all kind of money from the local people making their coffers fill while depleting resources for people on the ground. Those are a few ways and few things we can do to make sure that we can Target those monies toward the most vulnerable.

Who began the kneeling process and during the Star Spangled Banner, which we're not going to see everywhere. Well, every sporting events gonna have it. You know, that's a foregone conclusion. Two days after Kaepernick tweeted out That the Fourth of July is a celebration of white supremacy. Disney. Gave him a very, very sure Attractive deal to do to make a documentary about him or to do a production deal. They're gonna partner with him in some way. That's where we are.

"jim crow" Discussed on Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness
"To getting curious. This is Jonathan Ben S. We are back with Deborah Archer. So basically you're just saying that In implementation of the desegregation schools that was ruled in nineteen fifty four. But we're still against fighting to implement all of the tenants of that. So what were the tenants of that? And that's actually a lot of what you've written about it like in your work. So how are we still seeing like the ramifications of this now so Eve Brown with the separate but equal. I think has a thread in it that reaches back to to Jim Crow to connect to what you were talking earlier and that thread is that Jim Crow in many ways was about defining and protecting white space in white privilege and in Brown. It was a challenge to an attempt to define white schools white space white privilege and bronze said. You can't do that in public. Education separate is never equal and Brown soon spread to other areas where we saw challenges to separate bussing and separate pools and started to Brown's the first step in dismantling our segregation regime. But what continues today? Is this notion There are white spaces and that law should protect white space is and the the what people view as their privilege to control those spaces so we see that still in in in public education here in New York City one of those segregated school systems in the country and at the same time one of the most integrated cities in the country. We have intense segregation in our public schools. You see that protecting white space. I think in The Language and conversation around immigration the fear that In a few years America will be majority people of Color and I think a lot of what we see as a reaction to To that in an attempt to protect America's a white space I see that in the challenges to -firmative action programs at places like Harvard and the University of North Carolina that that is an attempt to protect white spaces that are growing increasingly diverse. So I think that's a thread that follows from Jim Crow through Today and another thread that I see through all of that is the myth of excessive black criminality that after emancipation we started to spin this narrative. That black people were so dangerous. They couldn't control themselves so we had to protect white women. We had to protect White Children. And that was the justification for segregation. Keep them in their own spaces and out of our spaces. Don't you think that was also like or isn't that also like inciting fear isn't that also just means to control like how governments like do that? I mean I'm not justifying. It's like super fucked up but did you. This may be an incorrect assumption. But did you see the thirteenth? I did those fucking films of them of of how they will portray black people in those films. It was also it's like I was. Did you see I just watched? Harriet like literally last night in the plane on the way home and I was really so I started reading more about the fugitive slave. Act just reading more about it. And it was really like Wisconsin New Hampshire Vermont and I believe Pennsylvania where like four states where like that act was bad was basically unenforceable because like the state legislatures and the governor is like weren't having it and they went to make state laws basically nullified it but I was thinking about like New York Maine Illinois in like other states that were states at the time that were in the north. That like didn't make the list of like you know being more complicit in the things that were going on in the south and I have another question like another thing that I'm just trying to get in my head straight because if it took till nine hundred sixty four to get to places of like you know. Education was nineteen fifty four but then like you know public spaces and transportation But what about voting his? There's also such a like really fucked up marginalized way that like you know I wasn't it like black men were allowed to vote. Didn't like no women voted until like nineteen to it's the one hundred ten adversity were celebrating the nineteenth amendment. So it's like one hundred years. It's only black. Women specifically in America have been like even more further marginalize in every way in voting in employment and education Black women have been more marginalized than than other groups. And you said so much I think is so incredibly important. I WANNA pause to just acknowledge the power that films like the thirteenth and Harriet and Selma have had because they are providing this education to a much broader audience. So that people can question what they see. People can Get engaged and involved And I think that's incredibly important. And then you mentioned The narrative of black criminality as a as a means to control and and incite fear. And it absolutely was your one hundred percent right and it was a way that white folks were able to justify this this system of segregation white supremacy to make people afraid to be with black people And then to invoke the criminal justice system as a means of control. And we see that today Look at the school to prison pipeline. We're we're thinking of children as young as as prekindergarten and kindergarten as violent and treating them as criminals and calling in the police to address childhood or adolescent behavior which is going on very much. I mean we sat with somebody who is at least once a quarter. But I'm sure it happens more often. Yes all the time and we see the videos and it certainly is a fragment and it's helping people acknowledge that it's happened but for every video you see. There are one hundred incidents that we that we don't see And so we really need to understand what A tragedy this is talked about voting rights and voting rights was as I said something that Black folks exercised following the adoption of the thirteenth fourteenth and fifteenth amendments and then that was eroded during Jim Crow Nineteen Sixty five. We had the voting rights act and it was brilliant in the way that it was crafted because it was understood that that discrimination of all's and that white supremacy was going to adapt to black resistance and so the voting rights act of nineteen sixty five had measures. That caught the new. The new twist on on discrimination and so it. I knew it might be poll taxes And then it might be literally literacy tests and then it was changing poll sites and now it's voter. Id Law the problem is. Is that the Supreme Court gutted? The Voting Rights Act a few years ago in a case call shelby county versus holder. Were the eliminated section five which was the pre-clearance requirement. So if Georgia wanted to make changes to voting they had to go to the Department of Justice and say we WANNA make this change and then prove that. It wasn't going to discriminate against people of Color. That's gone now and so right docket overturned. I cannot remember the the year it Maybe we can google it on our phone. But it was relatively recently John Roberts Was On the court and a roof that opinion gutting the the voting rights act immediately after Louis the day after the decision Texas adopted and implemented. It's voter ID law which had been struck down previously By that provision in the Voting Rights Act and then we saw proliferation of Voter purges voter. Id Laws. We saw North Carolina limitation of early voting And the core court. In North Carolina said that North Carolina Law targeted black people with surgical precision for example it eliminated diddly eliminate all early voting days but it eliminated the Sunday before Election Day and black people in the south often. Call that souls to the polls were after church everyone has a congregation will go and vote and they eliminated that day but not other days and so we see without the protection of the voting right. The full protection of the Voting Rights Act That black folks people of Color. Poor people and Surprisingly women or not surprisingly women are losing their their right to vote so I was just thinking a few things so one thing that you said earlier that I thought was new. York City has the most take some of the most schools in the country. That's something you don't think about why I think a lot of people are asking how or why because some people would say that it's because of residential segregation and that we are residential segregated here New York City but that is not the full story because in high school for example in New York City. You can go to any high school in the city. If you live in Brooklyn you can go to Bronx Science The problem is that we have implemented a series of tests and screens for high schools. That are not about ability. They're not about intelligence. They're not about the capacity for children to excel in high school. It is about access to money access to resources and access information which unfortunately in New York City is divided along racial lines So we have a test for some high schools. That don't rely don't actually test what you've learned in middle school and instead people are having to go to test prep programs for a year before they apply to high school and the test. Prep programs cost thousands of dollars. Npr automatically right. So you're not going to be able to pass that test and not be able to get to those schools And also I just an incredible series of screens that New York City has implemented that keep children of color out of some of the the the most elite public schools and how is is is not is it. Because Betsy Devos is like the head of education's like no one's accessing these things out. I mean who is supposed to oversee these things well? The city has a lot of control over those things there are some of it is a state controlled. In New York they have mandated a test for the specialized high schools But some of it is new. York City and New York City has has allowed Us to develop their own admissions criteria that exclude people of Color and poor people so for example there are middle schools in New York City. That are are are public schools but you have to take a special entry entrance exam or you have to have a portfolio or you have to show up for a test at four o'clock on Friday and there are certain kids whose parents can't get them to the test at four o'clock on Friday Or you have to go for various tours and During the week on a school day and people who have jobs that don't allow that flexibility? Can't get out of work to take their child to this tour. None of that should be required under that. Speaks to whether or not A child can perform as the ability has the intelligence and we also do gifted and talented tests for For kindergarten kids at four and five were testing Children in deciding whether or not they're gifted and based on that they're funneled into different educational programs So certainly the federal government could a stronger oversight role but New York City. There are things that could be done today to increase integration in public schools That aren't being done. Yeah I mean 'cause it be it. There are so many financial implications that just make that racist and classes in. It's so preventative. Like for just like for people. Okay I have another question okay. Affirmative action yes. I was born in Nineteen eighty-seven I think that that affirmative action is that I think I know what it is and I you know obviously like heard people talking about it. A lot is like a child. I've heard about it in my life but like I know that there's a concerted effort for people to say like this is no longer needed But I think that's kind of been the case for the whole time of affirmative action. There's always think of course people that are like no. We don't need this. That's not whatever I also think that in light of the whole admission scandal of like you know seeing all these elitist people using their influence and power to gain access to schools. That almost speaks to like why affirmative action is even more needed. Because you can use rich. People can manipulate the system. It was a blessing in disguise to show that there is no such thing as merit because we like to say that our systems are based on merit. And the the best people get in.

I have an easier time talking about race in front of southern white people that anybody else is on the south is the only place that has had to be reprimanded and reconcile with racism awesome because of jim crow because of segregation because it was on the books now mind you jim crow segregation were nationwide but south is the only place to put signs up about it. Some of those racist has ever happened to me happened to me in l._a. I think the south is one of the few places that will openly talk about race.

"Of slavery, Jim crow. Segregation today. Affirmative action programs have been converted into preference programs for immigrants though, most categories of immigrants are white and have never been negatively impacted by the racism and racial conditions that caused these programs to be necessary. This era can be traced to the immigration reform control act of nineteen eighty six which effectively required employees employers to treat immigrants exactly like native born citizens. Says nearly ninety percent of all immigrants are classified as white on their immigration records and driver's licenses. Why aren't immigrants treated like white and excluded from affirmative action programs? Why are they categorize would blacks only in the instance of affirmative action? Putting apples and oranges. In the same categories sets up a situation where immigrants of any race displaced blacks from the very programs designed to help them it is not possible to justify including Hispanics, Arabs, Asians, and other immigrants and women who are a majority in affirmative action programs yet. In two thousand sixteen black civil rights leaders elected officials at the highest levels and other members of the black overclass publicly supported immigration reform in granting citizenship to twelve to twenty million illegal immigrants that it entered the country since nineteen ninety the black over caloric class. Agreed with those who wanted to reach out and invite even millions more immigrants. Federal and state governments may have reasons to support increased immigration, but they have a moral obligation to avoid incorrect. The devastating harm causes native.

"Hi men, and he did this tweet storm and then appeared on the on the media podcast talking about how back during the Jim crow era in the south black people were really shut out of. Being consumers they had. They were in these very rural towns. And the only thing around was like the local town store and you would go that town store doesn't sound right. But anyway, you go to the shop the general store, right? And you know, some white guys behind the counter and the black person has to wait till all the white people are served before they get to buy anything, and you can't just pick stuff up and bring it to the counter. You have to interact with this white person behind the counter who may or may not decide you're worthy of being sold certain products like you're literally shut out of being a consumer in the Jim crow, south, and then the Sears catalog comes along and it goes to everyone goes to these people who are shut out of being consumers being like full members of society, and they get to buy whatever they want from the catalogs. And it was actually this like very political thing in this very democratizing thing. And it made me kind of think, like, I know I kind of Poupon capitalism a lot in here, but like it can be really wonderful that sometimes you know, if you're black is easier to get. Good news. Exactly and like an Amazon too. You know, there's a lot of downsides in lots of things to be cynical about about Amazon, but it has a similar kind of affect in a lot of a lot of rural areas where you lack access to goods like it opens up worlds for people. Sometimes I thought that was really cool. I would just say that going back a little bit to the example though talking about, I mean, I agree that a long time ago, Sears served a really relevant purpose and they were very, very important company, and I don't mean to diminish the what it's going to do to the people who are going to lose their jobs. But this is what happens as economies change as new industries come in. And yes, we can have a larger argument outside about why we should have a stronger safety nets. I try to protect people when these things happen, but my point is that what was happening with Sears was a really great innovation at the time. Now times have changed. Same thing. What happened with Uber is been a great innovation at the time, and so things change. So I don't think that when people are talking about like. Oh, as though somehow like Sears should be saved because it has this long history. That's why push back. Yeah. Well, I wasn't saying saying you were saying that anyway, just I was thinking a lot about that because a lot of people wrote about Sears as if it was another like retail is dying story. But when you dig in and you look at how badly Lampert ran.

Even a flood of donations from sympathetic Americans across the country could only postpone the inevitable by nineteen Fifty-nine the paper shut down its presses. The dramatic showdown in Little Rock and the consequences that daisy Elsie Bates faced as a result of their participation were examples of a much broader movement throughout the south, a determined and ferociously organized effort to prevent school desegregation was underway not only did it intend to stop integration from happening, but it sought to exact a heavy price from those activists, black and white who supported segregation is fought with renewed energy to defend Jim crow, under the banner of what came to be known as massive resistance. The south already had a long history of successfully repressing civil rights, advocacy, massive resistance in the nineteen fifties built upon these traditions and tactics through variety of forms in combination, they would prove tremendously successful at slowing or stopping the process of integration through the rest of the decade. And thousands of activists. Like daisy Bates would suffer serious consequences. The signs of southern defines were apparent well before the Little Rock crisis in fifty seven almost immediately after the supreme court's decision in Brown versus board. Three years earlier, a mass movement had taken shape amongst creationist in the agriculture counties of Mississippi white supremacists formed a new organization called the white citizens council. It's fundamental goal was to coordinate widespread resistance to desegregation from its Mississippi sea-bed the citizens council spread rapidly throughout the south. It fed on bitter reactions of white communities to local civil rights activism appealing to their sense that the Jim crow way of life was under attack by the start of nineteen fifty six with among Gumri busboy con garnering headlines from Alabama. Citizen's councils had appeared in every southern state membership stood somewhere north of a quarter million, but more than raw numbers. It was the influence that the council's wielded the pose. The greatest threat council leaders were usually well connected members of the Local local. elite businessmen, political officials, judges and white collar professionals in Montgomery as the boycott went on the city's mayor, police Commissioner, an array of other prominent figures all joined the council's ranks and all the women were initially prohibited from membership before long politically, active middle class, white women throughout the south made up a key part of.

"And so you know these, these districts, I think we can throw statistics at folks as a means of trying to communicate how important and urgent and relevant these things are. And sometimes those can get lost. But I think this is really important in under. Standing the fundamental relationship of racism in the legacy of Jim crow, to the sort of contemporary policies around voting in voting access that exists today. And it is Stu, I think also often people attempt to disaggregation disentangle the conversation around voter suppression from like you people say, oh, well, you know, voters pricing exist, but you know, that is different than the people who who simply don't vote. Like, I think I think we simply, we fail to understand the myriad of ways by which voter suppression acts upon communities, even when some of the people within those communities could still extensively vote. But like if there is a sort of large massive, voter suppression, intimidation as as is exemplified by the story that Britney talked about. We, we have to count for the ways in which that sort of larger cloak of fear and intimidation shapes what the turn out is gonna look like for. For a larger community of people. You know, my knees this week is also about voting in more than a couple of months ago we had the women can't call them who who started spread the vote, which is about helping people get idea and voter ID states that we had her on and talk about it. So there's a shout out to spread the votes ago. Google spread the vote, but I was looking at an article that talked about voter ID. Again, we've heard about the many times and there were some things that I didn't know. So I knew it was hard to get a license in a lot of places that I knew that it was costing I needed. The impact on older people was disproportionate because there some people who like they just can't get their birth certificate or like they don't know they're, they're old enough that like there might not have been a recording of their birth in a given town or so that the process extra becomes really hard in another piece of news that we covered a while ago was about the decline in driver's licenses that people all across the country is just getting driver's licenses at a lower rate in what happens when we predicate systems like voting on. Eating a license and most people only get licenses because Dr not because they just like have licenses going around. But what I didn't know is that there are places like in Georgia, for instance that require a record of every single name change. So it mainly affects older women who have been a married more than one time, and they have to get by documentation for every single name tainting event. So in the article, the person talks about like you have to go to the random county that the divorce was filed in in, like get a record of that, and then you have to make sure that it's like completely documented..
