Criminals at the Capitol. Weren't there at the lips to even hear the president's words. They were more than a mile away, engaged in their pre planned assault on this very building. Texas Congressman Joaquin Castro, one of the House managers, says former president stoked his supporters for months before the attack and this attack as we said Income from one random speech. And it didn't happen by accident. And that Mom didn't come out of thin air as part of their defense. Trump's attorneys played an out of context.

"Representative Joaquin Castro will be answering this party's base to believe that their election was stolen. And that was the point. That was the thing that would get people so angry. Think about that. What it would take to get a large group of thousands of Americans so angry to storm the capital. That was the purpose behind Donald Trump. Saying that the election had been rigged. And that the election had been stolen and to be clear what he says The election is stolen. What he's saying is that the victory and he even says one time the election victory. It's been stolen from them. Think about how significant that is. Two Americans again. You're right over 70 million think 74 Million people voted. For Donald Trump. This wasn't a one off comment. It wasn't one time it was over and over and over and over and over again. With a purpose. We're not having this impeachment trial here because Donald Trump contested the election. As I said during the presentation, and nobody here wants to lose an election. We all run our races to win our elections. What President Trump did was different. But our commander in chief did was the polar opposite of what we're supposed to do. We let the people decide the elections. Except President Trump. He directed all of that rage that he had incited to January 6. The last chance that's this again to him. This was his last chance. This was certifying the election results. He needed to whip up that mob. AMP. Them Up enough Get out there and try to stop the election results the certification of the election. And you all They took over the Senate chamber. To do that. They almost took over the House chamber. There were 50 or so or more house members who are scared, literally scared for their lives up in the gallery. Woman who bought into that big lie. Died. Because she believed the president's big lie. This resulted in a loss of one of his supporters lives. Capitol Police officer died that day. Other of President Trump's supporters. To Capitol police officers ended up taking their own lives. Defense counsel. Their defense is basically everything President Trump Trump did is okay and he could do it again. Is that what we believe? There is no problem with that. It's perfectly fine if he does the same thing all over again. This is dangerous. He's inciting his base. He was using the claim of a rigged election. We have never seen somebody do that, over and over and over again, tell Ally say, six months ahead of time that it's a rigged election. There is a dangerous consequence to that. You've got millions of followers on Twitter and millions of followers on Facebook, and you've got that huge bully pulpit from the White House and you're the president of the United States. There is a cost to doing that. People are listening to you in a way that quite honestly, they're not listening to me, and they're not listening to all of us in this room. I just want to clear up the defense counsel made a point about something that I read earlier. Defense counsel suggested I misspoke. And I just want to clarify for the record. But the tweet I referenced. Let me read you the tweet directly if a Democrat presidential candidate had election rigged and stolen With proof of such acts at a level never seen before the Democrats, senators would consider it an act of war and fight to the death. Mitch in the Republicans do nothing. Just want to let it pass, no fight. So Donald Trump was equating what Democrats would do if their election was stolen. He said they'd fight to the death. Why do you think he sends that tweet? Because he's trying to say Hey, the other side would fight to the death so you should fight to the death. May. Do we read that any other way? Spring House impeachment manager. What came Castro answering that question there? The senator from Missouri, Mr President, my behalf and on behalf of Senator Kramer, I sent a question to the desk..

U.S.-Iranian tensions surge after Trump-directed airstrike kills top military leader

"When president trump ordered the drone strike that killed an Iranian military leader it cost most members of Congress by surprise presidents normally brief senior lawmakers of both parties but by all accounts that didn't happen to Ron has now promised to retaliate for the execution of general Qassem Soleimani the US says it's sending thousands more troops to the region joining us now is congressman walking Castro Democrat from Texas he serves on the house foreign affairs committee welcome congressman thank you good to be with you yesterday the administration formally notified Congress about this attack are you satisfied no not at all the president should have notified Congress before taking this action sure consulted with congressional leaders before taking such a dramatic step and having a very high ranking official in the Iranian government killed and knowing that this would escalate probably in the war what more would you like to know from the White House well you know there's the old adage in politics that you trust but verify but Donald Trump as president is literally told thousands of large so with this president and this administration we have to verify and then perhaps trust so we need to see as members of Congress what intelligence they were dealing with when they made this decision that's the first thing but second Congress will very likely take action to limit the president's ability to find any kind of war with Iran Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has asked lawmakers to hear the facts before passing judgement why not hold off before criticizing president trump Smith well because it the president's conducted his foreign policy are very chaotic in a radical way sometimes you'll logical way and in this case in a dangerous way so it's not a situation where the president makes any kind of dramatic action what he wants and then tells Congress it's got to be the other way around and what about this claim from the trump administration that there was a credible threat of attacks on US targets that justified the killing of still money have you seen any evidence of that I have not and Congress has not been offered any evidence or increasing about that to date of perhaps that will come up but again that's where the president's track record comes into play because this administration has literally told so many falsehoods so many lies and because the American people feel like they were duped into the Iraq war that becomes very problematic it makes it very hard to trust the district president the president says he has the power to take out terrorists and Congress has done nothing to take back that power you mentioned limiting funding perhaps but until Congress is willing to pass the war powers act to restrain the president what other options are there well the good congressman take going for example one thing your math that is not be done in about eighteen years out and quite honestly Congress has been on the sidelines of making decisions about war and it has put itself on the sidelines by not taking action if your call in twenty thirteen it on August the twenty thirteen September twenty thirteen president Obama said the proposed a year left to the Congress to take up and Congress didn't take it out and I think a lot of that has to do with politicians being very shy about taking positions or the use of military force because it can come back those decisions could come back to hurt people's political careers the way they have around the Iraq war but Congress has to be able to take a position and get off the sidelines we owe that to the American people but the president that the American people to inform Congress and inform Americans about what a story you're a member of the subcommittee on investigations will you be looking to investigate the president's decision to take out general so the money well I mean it's still early to tell whether they would beat mastication for the first of many of the subcommittee perhaps the whole committee will certainly have hearings on that to assess the situation to find out what happened okay but in terms of the investigation I'll have to see how the facts of that's congressman Joaquin Castro Democrat from Texas congressman thanks so much for joining us thank you the Pakistani city of Lahore has some of the world's worst air pollution Amnesty International calls it a violation of the human rights of every resident of the city for years the government downplayed the extent of the problem but now its citizens are pushing back including some so called scary mobs as NPR's DHEA how deep reports a

Latinos are sorely underrepresented in film

Latinos are sorely underrepresented in film

"Welcome to the frame. I'm John Horn. Latinos have been underrepresented in Hollywood for a long time both in front of and behind the camera last week a delegation from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus came to La to discuss the issue with Industry Leaders Congressman Joaquin Castro of San Antonio is Chairman of the Group and he says the Hispanic Caucus has a couple of concerns about representation. We worked in in Los Angeles on two issues in particular the gross underrepresentation of Latinos in the entertainment industry and the second getting is portrayal of Latinos in television and film for example. This latest Annenberg report found that of the lead characters on film. Twenty eight percent played criminals which is obviously for any American community or segment of society Misrepresentation and so we had meetings with six or seven studios and executives from those studios. We met with a few of the Gills. The street actors Guild Sag after and the directors guild and and we had a chance to meet with about forty Latino actors actresses producers directors and others about the Hollywood ecosystem Oh system and the challenges that they face hitting work in that system. It's not just the kinds of parts. That Latinos are getting. It's the number of parts Latino. Oh actors barely got four and a half percent of the more than forty seven thousand speaking roles in the top one hundred grossing movies from each though past twelve years and Latinos make up a huge percentage of the US population but also the movie going public. It's almost a quarter of all. Ticket buyers are Latinos. So was there any explanation explanation about that. Disconnect yeah I mean we had pleasant meetings with everyone And you know and everybody talked about. The things are doing to try to do better better. I can't say that there was a satisfactory answer to that. Issue up they did talk about their different pipelines for writing for directing. You know this and that that they're working on. But as I said to those folks in the meetings look if you're at three percents now of Latinos in front of the camera behind the camera then. Whatever you've been doing doing in the past obviously has not worked? So what are you doing right now. And what do you plan to do to improve those numbers And it's very strange that an industry like Hollywood this considered liberal and progressive. Then he would have worse numbers than the fossil fuel industry the oil and gas industry in my home state of Texas Texas. The numbers obviously don't lie the representation of Latinos along with a lot of underrepresented groups in Hollywood is terrible. Why is it important that that it changed? And why is it important to you personally. Well there is a cost to that underrepresentation in C. Suites In terms of casting directors producers etc and part of that cost is a misprint trail of Latinos. I think get no. We not only affects how the how people see themselves but also how. The larger American public sees a Latino community. So when a president or we're politician or anyone else gets up and says that Latinos are criminals and rapists murderers and people turn on their television set and they go to a movie movie and that's exactly what they see then. It affirms that idea for them that the person who's speaking is right and taken to its extreme. It leads to what you've gotTa Know Paso Texas a few months ago which is a madman driving Ted Hours to kill twenty one people. Because he sees Hispanics as invaders to the United States never mind that Latinos have been here for generations. So Hollywood has to take a really deep and close look in the mirror and start to change and change -serily not just by lip service but actually changed. And how do you think that will come about because we've had study after study leave for the last decade that's pointed out these numbers and it doesn't seem like the needle is moving. Do you see any hope for optimism. You you know I. I was Optimistic after it was conversations in terms of Congress's involvement in Congress does have jurisdiction over tax incentives. That provided to the film industry. Just like different state. Legislatures have jurisdiction over tax incentives. That are offered in different places where movies and television television productions are set. But I I'll tell you I did tell some of the folks in these meetings that for us for those of us that were on that trip for the Congressional National Hispanic Caucus and I think for I would dare say for many other members of Congress we have is a mark Zuckerberg level problem here in terms of Hollywood. We have have a problem where an industry is acting incredibly irresponsibly and doesn't seem to be doing very much to change it so the idea that you would bring executives from from Hollywood in front of Congress. The Judiciary Committee is the committee that has jurisdiction basically over Hollywood. That idea I think is something that we should consider consider. Let's assume that these Hollywood executives who aren't really doing what maybe there should be doing. Were to testify in front of Congress. What would you ask them? Congress has brought different industries In front of it to question them on their practices in terms of hiring and diversity and what commit. But they're making do those things and so I ask him questions about the processes they put in place. I mean. Look when you're in a city that is forty percent. Latino in a state is forty percent Latino country that's eighteen percent Movie ticket buyers. That are twenty three percent over indexed on movie ticket sales and this group of people only has about three percent of the rolls when you combine in front of and behind the camera you get to a point where you have to admit that that's systemic exclusion of a group of people and when we have systemic problems not just individual problems or one person here there air when you have problems.

Trump fundraiser puts billionaire host on defensive

"Welcome back to the bench well once you castigate president from the **** and all of his supporters is not to say that basically allows you to do anything the New York times today is coming out and making the case that basically all trump supporters should be docks even though the fully admit that those trump supporters are being harassed he's number one from The New York Times they say trump opponents want him to name one to name his big donors his supporters say it's harassment by Katie Rogers and Annie Karni they start out for many businesses a sudden deluge of phone calls made signal an influx of new customers but most of the twenty five calls just inherits received before noon on Thursday from people who wanted to tell him he was a white supremacist for donating money to president trump X. the owner of precision pipe rentals in oil and gas services company in San Antonio said quote I've had people say Hey we're gonna use your for business but we found out your racist we hope you burn in hell your business will go with you the reason for the calls was terraces inclusion this week on a list of forty four San Antonio area residents of maxed out their donations to the president's reelection campaign that list we shared on Twitter by representative walking Castro a Texas Democrat who serves as the chairman of the presidential campaign of his twin brother William Republicans have accused the congressman of dioxin private citizens and trying to incite harassment of the president's supporters now I find it hilarious that The New York Times which will simultaneously claim that from incited violence will suggest that Joaquin Castro had no role in inciting harassment of businesses whose names he tweeted out and call them complicit in murder effectively so yeah I I'm not going to stand by your standard of causation dies I think that you've got this little mixed up your time has a similar uproar over from donors is playing out in the monied enclave of the Hamptons we're real estate developers are hosting to fundraisers for Mr trump on Friday progressives looking for a way to express their anger and Mr trump and the people who support him have threatened to boycott SoulCycle the popular spin studios chain an equal knocks high and Jim both owned by the billionaire developer Stephen Ross was scheduled to host the president calling out people who fund campaigns is not a new tactic but the question of how much should be publicly disclosed about those donors has been an issue that Republicans led by the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have repeatedly raised in recent years in a heated political environment boycotting businesses a big donors has led to a new round of outrage at either end of the political spectrum okay so the New York times openly acknowledging that the people that walking Castro targeted are being harassed so there are times then has an editorial from the editorial board it's called may the SoulCycle boycott make democracy better and then they try to separate off what Joaquin Castro did from what the people what kind soul cycle that which is impossible because it's the same exact thing it is targeting donors to political campaigns on the basis of their politics and then suggesting that they're responsible for great evil and known to patronize their businesses and it is our pitchforks and torches outside their house it is the same exact thing New York times is embarrassed the walking Castro precipitated harassment of specific people but they kind of like a stack again that's a the editorial says this instance like walking Castro's up stage a real concern Americans should want to know more about who funds political campaigns I'm we already have transparency laws in place we already know who funds political campaigns that's not what's going on here what is going on here is that when you call trumpet **** when you call his supporters **** and then you say here all the people who donate money to **** you should not be surprised when the political climate change that you are incurring racks up and continues rack up again I'm focusing in on the left today because the reactionary left is doing this this week trump is raise the temperature in the past and I've read too many one when he has yeah but the the raising the political temperature from left this week has been utterly astonishing in the aftermath of an attack but you to Lisa brought us together for a moment of morning when we're on the same page with regard to white supremacism so the New York times editorial board tries to tries to distinguish the same movement to go after equinox and SoulCycle from what what walking Castro did is that a popular form of protest boycotts more often serve to drop public attention to an issue and to affect concrete change with Mister Ross critics may or may not managed to inflict any financial pain they nonetheless are to public publicly demanding that he answer for and perhaps ultimately rethink his political giving in the process they're sending a signal to other major contributors to carefully consider their choices less they faced a similar accounting public shaming seems to be at the core a Mister Castro street well the outcry from Republican officials as much louder the Texas congressman was accused of inviting harassment and encouraging violence against his own constituents there is rich irony about the Republican self righteous that Baba then they say well it's kind of embarrassing that that Mr Castro did this right they say that he links disclosure from policy and that is that that is a bad thing but then they conclude I basically saying that we should increase the amount of coverage of this sort of stuff they say for now one basic step maybe for media outlets and other advocates for transparency to keep working to ease access to and promote interest in donor data more broadly in other words were embarrassed the people harassed the people that were targeted by walking castles do more of that more of that would be good the only problem is that Castro said the quiet part out loud and the people he target or the little people but if they've been the big people it would've been fine that wasn't I think it's perfectly appropriate to call out major donors for whom they donate to I do not think it is appropriate to boycott businesses in which they invest specifically because they happen to be investors in that business especially if the particularly and only if the business does not reflect the policy preferences of the person at the top so I don't know which businesses George Soros is invested I don't frankly I don't really care because as long as those businesses are not reflecting his political preferences I will shop there I think George Soros donates a lot of people to people I really just like I think that is politics are egregiously bad in many many ways really terrible in many ways I think funds a lot of groups that I really can't stand but I'm not gonna stop shopping I'm not going to become part of a country where everybody is expected N. N. must in fact go through the corporate boards of every major corporation that produces a product that we eat where or entertained by and then decide whether those people reflect our politics by the way important to note one of the major funders of Marvel entertainment is a trump donor so guys to start start burning your Avengers endgame DVDs well well that it is all making the country so much stronger and so much better in the aftermath of something as terrible as what just happened the fact that we can't get together on anything is really indicative of a of a serious

"You're going to Iraq sell rush wall behind the gold in the I. B. network I was just watching the collecting information cataloguing and it was watching their reactions some people whose names war publish by Joaquin Castro who is the twenty minute Robert R. island well yeah and cash flow of the radical Castro family communist mom and dad down in San Antonio and no one came Castro published an ad here's the here's a guy running his brother who lien's presidential campaign and then they're they're not identical plans any publishes this ad suppose away of trump donors and they're trying to tie these people to the shootings these are senatorial business owners and people and need Castro's run this AB they also inadvertently publish the names of some of their daughters on a lot of people contribute to both parties and both sides of the aisle and some of these donors this is another former push back but I'm taught some these donors are livid that they're being a length of this and of course the Castro but one that was not a point what was your point why why did you publish that list of names well well we use we use in people in and out for what reason well we're not we're not trying to cause any mileage to be visiting the hell your not you are certainly holding him up for astra's ation and ridicule that you're hoping that people boycott their businesses or worse and some of these people whose names are not radical activists they're just donors don't they donate because politics is a protracted protection racket you don't need to both sides giving yourself insurance no matter who wins your covered and they find their names published on this ad being willing to buy the Castro brothers as having some responsibility for these white supremacist mass shootings if they donated to trump and these people are are many of them are just livid about it it's another example I'm back fire now I'm calling it back for the media isn't this is key to understand the media cannot bring itself in any way shape manner form to do anything other than promote all of this thank they cannot attack nobody can nobody on the left can attack anything the left does because those revolutionaries gonna come swallow them up they all know what it is on adulterated fear that is governing a lot of these presidential candidates like they're all like Elizabeth Warren is is doing a town hall in some farm field out in Iowa right now and the crowd is so small it even shot and she's out there yes I don't I don't know no question about the president of the United States is a white supremacist so it's C. N. N.'s during a panel are all a plot to get a little road worn out pretty soft pretty tough Lingle man call a president either states a white supremacism New York times double check with the listeners warned you really mean is I damn well meant to say that he's a white supremacist now they're saying these are good people in Charlotte and all the stuff lie after lie after lie right now I I contend that not all of it but part of this is because these cabins you know when when I see Tim Ryan who tried to save his party a little bit in the last debate when I see him pro testing with the mob and the turtles out they're scared to death of all scared of Twitter they're scared now don't misunderstand I'm not saying that if it weren't for the radical left base these people wouldn't be as left wing as they are I'm not saying that they still hate trump they be doing everything they could to get rid of trump they're still radical leftist I'm just telling you that it's a bunch of invisible people people were not known who are on Twitter for the most part who have put fear legitimate real fear in the hearts all these Democrats including Biden Joe Biden is out there what's the the bite under fire for comments on segregation is gave eulogies for Robert Byrd Mysteron Thurman this story is only June twentieth all how we have forgotten but it wasn't that long ago that Biden was being ripped to shreds as a racist because he was singing the praises of the segregationist senators now what what Biden's doing trump is the K. K. K. says Biden trumps friends are in a K. K. K. what is happening and this is a key thing and you're you're you're probably gonna die out what is happening is that who ever this Democrat basis when I say invisible radicals on Twitter that is most but not all of them are invisible and not all women are anonymous that we know who some of them are but the point is they are scaring me all of these bit white like the media scares Republicans the same things happening on the left but it's a different direction it's radical leftist potentially deadly and dangerous violent leftist revolutionaries are scaring the hell out of Democrats who previous to this season have not expressed this degree of radicalism now what that means is in addition to many other things is that they are all losing what ever authenticity they had they have become an echo chamber and they are all beginning to sound alike and there's now a contest among these people on the left to see who am satisfied this raised leftist revolutionary gang the best and the fastest in the soonest and I'm just telling you in politics when you'll start sacrificing your authenticity for whatever reason your toast because people pick up on that the fact your authentic or not Hillary Clinton is not authentic and we knew she would not that Bill Clinton was seen as authentic someone's Barack Hussein Clinton arm trump I'm sorry in Spain is seen as often and these people are sacrificing they are allowing it to be overwhelmed by their their fear and the feeling of necessity they have to make sure they pose the proper way to make sure they say and do what ever it takes to keep the crazed left wing revolutionaries away from them now back to the New York times story a little bit more detail here again it's by a man named Nate Cohn don't assume trump's approval rating can't climb higher it already has if you go read this what you're going to find this guy has really toned down what he thinks is a dangerous signal they're bad warning signs for the left out there in the polling data he's analyzed but he is really catching it so that he doesn't become a target so he doesn't get swallowed up and eaten by this rag tag bunch of people that descended on the New York times earlier this week and threaten to cancel their subscriptions because of a headline like so his son had millions of Americans who did not like the president twenty sixteen now say they do can I tell you how much against the grain this runs in a left wing conventional wisdom left when conventional wisdom is important remember they lie to each other and they believe their lies like in twenty sixteen they all believe tailoring a win in a landslide they believe their polls they believe the bull that they tell each other and so the conventional wisdom among leftists is that everybody hates drop and that they are succeeding in causing people to abandon drop this stuff this white supremacy in this white nationalism it has replaced Russian collusion folks that's now gone that bombed out there was never anything to it in the first place but you know why it's gone because with white supremacy and white nationalism you don't need any evidence and you don't need a special counsel and you don't need an investigation you just need a whole bunch of people making the allegation and then you need your sick of frantic media amplifying at all you don't need to year is and a bunch of leaks from a bunch invisible Intel community people the New York times claiming trump colluded with Russia all the while you don't need a fake dossier that can't be verified you would just need a bunch of people say it and so white supremacy and white nationalism has replaced collusion in the ongoing effort to dislodge and get rid of trump in the process these people have convinced themselves that they're succeeding they have convinced themselves that people hate trump this is why a truck go sell Paso and Dayton yesterday you don't get factual stories about how much love there was for truck you want to see it we posted a bunch of pictures that Rush Limbaugh dot com right there at the top of the homepage you should go there it's not for members only anybody can go it's it's on the free side and when you look at these pictures you'll be a main St how many African Americans are happy and some words of all white supremacists and then you'll notice how many women are trying to get closer and closer to the president they are smiling they are gleeful and what is he why he's all woman hating misogynist they tell so you don't get the stories you don't hear anything of the sort because they can't afford to deal with the truth they have to live in the fantasy land it they've created were everybody hates drum more and more people hate drunk people are abandoning trump because now people realize is a white supremacist and so forth yet the polling data millions of Americans who did not like the president in twenty sixteen now say they do so it's a double whammy trump's base is not abandoning him trump space is seeping over this trump's base is livid over this and so are a lot of other people so not only is trumps based not abandoning him a bunch of people who didn't like him in twenty sixteen now do so Mister Cohn here is trying to warn these lunatics who need to be in institutions with men and women and little white coach supervising he's trying to tell them that every god out there but he's got to be very careful as they come and kill him and I think part of the why get the support that trump has is reflected in all polling not just the polling that Mister Coleman here has analyzed here's a pull quote end over the last few months some of the highest quality of public opinion polls show the president's job approval rating has inched up to essentially match the highest level of his term what how can that be when the media and the left think they have all finally destroyed trump here's another pull quote it's true that the president's job approval rating has been young usually stable when compared with other presidents what what what what it's true it's true the president's job approval rating has been unusually stable when compared with other presidents but top possibility that he has lifted the his approval ratings however fleetingly to match the highest levels of his presidency is a reminder of the ceiling all this support is higher than some may think this guy he is already at the edge of the cliff he's in a wheelchair to some Democrats about to push him over he's got a really counts this but he's telling these people it ain't what you think you are not making trump more unpopular and you'd better real that they can't come out and say that because they'll cancel a subscription to The New York Times and all hunt this guy down in a make a movie about tall for Nate called and that's the end yeah.

Joaquin Castro said he ignored requests to relinquish his phone to record video of detained migrants at border facility

"Pediatrics released these pictures today drawings made by ten and eleven year old children in macallan recently released from customs and border protection custody depicting themselves behind bars and in cages we have almost no video oh what if like in these detention camps except for this which were shocked by texas democratic congressman joaquin castro who smuggled some sort of recording vice into a facility bility on monday as part of congressional delegation even though border patrol confiscated members phones schmidt castro joins me now why did you think it was important to defy their worst confiscate your phones to get a footage from inside because the country has to see what's being done in their name and also because i don't believe that the executive branch has authority to tell the legislative branch with oversight power over these federal federal agencies that we can't document what's going on inside side and we asked the border patrol chief and as an attorney that was their very specifically the site the law they were relying on to keep us from documenting what what's going on and they couldn't find a single law so at that point chris consider their request a courtesy and there's too much at stake for me to abide by courtesy at this point the funny show their shows women who have appear you know they're not they're obviously not young young children and their their their adult women 'em on the floor there in that sell it looks like a jail cell what's striking to me is what you guys saw they knew you were coming this is not a spot visit is that correct that's right but they didn't think we would get into that sell the reason that we got ended outsell is because alexandro cossio cortez insisted that she be able to talk to those women and basically you know you know push away in there and so when we got in there the women started telling us their stories some of them fifty days there in detention some separated from their kids some said they've not been given their medications the sink was not working there is no running water so when these women use the restroom there is no way for them to wash their hands so what we saw in that cell it's consistent with what the pediatricians have said about other facilities i also want next door and visited people at another facility there is a woman who is in the early stages of pregnancy an in that facility there is a sink was working there were paper cubs were being reused by the people in that sell a so these conditions are deplorable a human rights are being neglected and the president had this to say if illegal immigrants are unhappy with the conditions in the quickly built around fitted detention centers just tell them not to come all problem solve what do you think of that well a first these are mostly asylumseekers they have the legal right to petition for asylum in the united states just as anybody across the world has the right to do that in any nation and also it shows you that what we already know that the presidency's migrants as subhuman he dehumanizes them for political purposes and politically gain and there is reporting other supporting republican recover earlier in the week about a a facebook group with thousands of members in cbp that posted offensive racist sexist derogatory means i'm really some disturbing stuff on were reporting tonight from politico that actually dhs officials were alerted to this some admitted apparently anonymously the they had been monitoring it per quote intelligence and that this would do it was notified to see bp as far back as twenty sixteen which is under the obama administration administration what does that say to you about the culture of cb p c b p is broken and they have it culture problem at this point the bad has overtaken the good and there are good agents who were trying to do their best to take care of the people in their custody but they're overwhelmed by the system and they're also under cut by the kinds of agents who were making those violent vulgar comments and right now there is no system in place within cbp that can really hold agents accountable when they do wrong and that's what we're seeing is it these people continue

Trump delays ICE raids but threatens deportations unless Congress revamps asylum

"Democrats in congress are criticizing President Trump. For using the threat of mass immigrant deportations as a bargaining leverage, as NPR's. Bobby Ellen reports. Trump delayed a plant sweep of thousands of migrants and urged Democrats to make changes to asylum laws. Trump sudden reversal on his plan to have immigration and customs enforcement arrest families in ten cities comes just as congress moves closer to approving a four point five billion dollar package in border aid. The funding will address humanitarian problems on the border, including improving conditions for children in detention had the raids gone as planned the bipartisan Borderie deal could have been endangered. House speaker, Nancy Pelosi said she welcomed the delay. She originally called the plan rates quote, heartless and Representative Joaquin Castro, the chairman of the congressional Hispanic caucus said threats of targeting immigrants shouldn't be a negotiating tactic from the country's president and spokesman said in a statement that if congress doesn't make it easier to deport migrants. There's no alternative but to arrest people when they legally crossed the

"By the way? Yeah. The Brown grandkids. He says that people, but there is this thing within the Republican community about about interracial unions. Like, we don't know whites with Hispanics is a is a problem. Have you ever heard that? No, no, never heard anyone say anything about quote, unquote, Brown grandbabies. I mean, I think I heard even that phrase like once it was in the Bush McCain race when they were hand somebody was handing out flyers inside liner about McCain, a Brown grandson or his daughter for. Yeah. And that was the only American debt. It makes it sound like any, you know, well, right-leaning diner, you're gonna get conversations. If you eavesdrop that you're going to be talking about, quote, unquote, Brown grandbabies that is odd because grandparents generally. No. Yeah. I don't hear that. I don't feel that whatsoever. I mean, I I have not had the. Grandkids of my this Brokaw trying to sound like he was in tune. But then blunt blood bludgeoning at number one, the back half is nothing goes past that like once he says Brown grandbabies, we're done check. Please you're over. You've this is the thing. But he does talk about assimilation. And he does talk about they need to speak English. That's the one that he's really apologizing for in Twitter where I've worked my whole life trying to bring people together and talking about how hard working all different parts of our community until he's trying to walk that stuff back. Well, does he was that from him? Or is that that you heard I assume that he wanted to position it as being from Republicans saying that although that is a little bit more benign simulation is something that is part of the conversation of immigrants certainly for. Well, I guess in the Shattuck's in the Brokaw's and Shattuck's have any are longtime gerrad restarted hole for you guys were the ones that own the Mayflower, at least that I believe with a Shaddix made the Irish need not apply signs and put them up all over Boston. Philly gowdy specifically, but I know is a simulation or like a racist dog whistle now Brokaw's bringing that up aside from his problem that he had earlier in the speech assimilation is a thing. Right. But he's now apologizing for that. In fact, you saw who is the was it a congresswoman I think from Florida said we grew up in Miami. And we speak Spanish, and we don't need you telling us we got to assimilate some version thereof. Is that a bad word now simulation? I don't. No. I mean, it's a, oh, I think we might be. I'm the I I think this is very I think this thing here with more than you realize political correctness was put in place to cast off traditions western traditions. There's no doubt. So that the spirit of what he's saying goes right into that because western traditions are Bilton on slavery and oppression and all that stuff, but he seems to get several different concepts. Confused, I thought he was going in different areas here. I thought he was talking about originally thought he was saying that there's more support among Hispanics for Republicans in they're trying to figure a way how to make accommodations for cultural differences, then he got into black Brown grandkids. And that's just a wacky thing to say, that's disjointed. That's not even that's I don't think he's saying anything. I mean that just doesn't make any sense. It's not even good at what it's supposed to be. It's ineffective in disjointed as as a charge of racism doesn't make any sense to just use the charge of racism use. You can use. I see white people talking about the satellite dishes because they say Hispanic immigrants like to watch soccer use something like that. That's that's got elements in it that maybe some people could say in whatever. But this grandparent's thing is not working. Well, we're, but let's leave that part of it. Minute because so Joaquin Castro Castro. Right. His tweet on this. He's tweeting off of Andrew Grossman, who's twit quoting Brokaw, Hispanic seem to work harder to simulation and make sure their kids, learn English. She tweets this to people that are ripping broke on demanding an apology, whatever so Castro tweets off of that and says for celebrated journalist who spent years chronic American society, you seem stunningly ignorant of the Spanish community in this country. Unfortunate to see Xena phobia pass for elevated political commentary. So in the quote that he's using we're not talking about the Brown. Gram grams time with the assimilation Hispanics need to work harder at assimilation and make sure their kids, learn English. So is that in of itself? Is Dr Joaquin Castro thing is that stunningly ignorant in his that, Xena phobia. No, I think it is in two thousand nineteen whether it really, isn't it isn't, but no. But this is what I'm saying the construct. Yes, he screwed himself. Obviously with saying the word brownies not allowed to according to the construct. Not right now. Yes, he ran afoul several times, including you can't white splaine anybody, which is one of the things he seems to have been doing. Yes. According to these new rules based on it, complete intellectual dishonesty. Yes, he hit the third rail. A couple of times, I just think he was of the ramblings of a fool, but it I mean Hispanics do simile into the into the mainstream in white America. Everybody certainly brings part of their culture with them into this country. But I mean, this is simulation happens. Well, I guess we'll get into Malaysian as a matter. Of course. I mean when talk. You're next issue talked Florida those are very different than main in North Dakota in. Right. So. There are different levels of assimilation or whatever. The the key part for me on all of it is the oughta make sure their kids, learn English. I've never understood and I still don't understand. Why Trump hasn't made that a thing? And why there isn't a push to make English the official language under a Trump presidency. And I assume it's because that is a bad word that is now one of the that's like a dog whistle that must mean, you're as loud he care. The country though, and you care about wins. You Trump likes to setup battles? And you know, what we're English speaking, and we're gonna make this individual language, and we're going to start a constitutional movement. You think Trump couldn't run with that? And you think Trump could make a big thing out of that. I'm standing up for America. And what I believe is American. What I think Americans should do speak English. We could win with that. No problem. I don't think. So actually, I I think that there are I think that the founding fathers. Essentially did not want to put have government put parameters on on things like that. I think there's something to it. I think hardcore conservatives who are more familiar with the federal papers. I am have a kind of pseudo constitutional argument for not having an official language officially sanctioned by the state. That's it. I see what you're what you're saying. It's the founding fathers did when they printed stuff like, for example, the declaration of independence. They had the F CBS. It was in English only. Well, it was a letter. English. But that world that they were in. They always. We're leaving France. It wouldn't have been in English are also Englishman. We're not. Okay. But well, everything made it was in English. And in a lot of the people that were coming. You're at that time spoke English show. It wasn't something that was like a real pressing matter, right. What Brokaw would be telling you that. He's hearing for what it's worth is that in Miami. For example, a lot of people speak Spanish, and they just speak Spanish, and they keep it that way. He saying maybe they should learn how to speak English to be much more of a proud American. Is that a thing or not? That's what I'm wondering. If it is. Why don't we own that as a country? Like, what is the what are what are we doing at some point? Don't we have to come to terms with that either? We're going to speak Spanish, we're going to speak English or we're going to do both. I don't know if I mean, you'd want somebody to to assimilate and learn the language to learn to transact, I just don't get at some point. When you set up a culture, you set up a society or whatever. Yeah. You need walls. And yeah, you need laws, but you do need this is who we are. Right. But the society today around one shared history or experience, we're not the French feel like Liz, Warren stopped by. No, it's not true. I mean, we are. I hate to say it. We're melting pot where I mean. Is what the thing is. So that's what it is. I agree with should be melt in when you come from Honduras to the United States or come from anywhere from Afghanistan into the United States, you become or should become an American. You should not become. Why is not? In america. Why isn't English part of that? Why is that such a threat to people and is it racist? I'm asking the question Brokaw's taking crap about among other things. Again. My issue with broke is number one Brown ground, babe, Graham, babies that's stunning to me that those words. What a bunch of jerks. I wanna keep caveat leave that out of it for a moment. And go off of this, quote that Castro has an issue with which is Hispanics need to work harder at assimilation is that is that an assault. But you're saying it is you're saying Hispanics, assimilate fine. I'm not saying, it's I'm saying, yes, I think they okay. So you do you have an issue with that one? And then the second part is making sure their kids, learn English. That's the one I banged my head against before. Where I'm like, I don't get why that's such a problem for Americans due to say, no, we do want that. Well, yes, that's fine. That's different than making it the official Allegheny school costs down in one way. We do that is we have English only. That's it. We're doing it in one language. They know the problem with with schools is not simply language. It's one of the every kid is now at it's one every is assigned his own social worker now in school. So that is one of the things certainly could we get two thirds of the states to vote for English. Only English is the official. It's not the only you can speak Spanish. But everything we're going to do is going to be in English going forward. Well, it still is that going back. By the fact that you're saying Massachusetts where stuff comes out in any doctor's office. It's in seventeen different languages. Are you using on the T has multiple languages anything? The government puts out in this in this state, right? I understand. But I mean. They're also trying to communicate with the citizenry. So I I realized a lot of it is just you know, liberal outreach. And of course in there. In trying to cast off this Anglo. You know, we have. But. A lot of times people are just trying to communicate as well. You know, I I don't think that you need to make it the efficiently. I'm surprised at how uncomfortable you feel about this? And have. Doing that dance. Is other people on it. I just don't know. I don't know the numbers in this are Hispanics, not learning to speak English because I'm not running into it in the United States. Maybe I live in would you? You're one of the richest towns in the whole country. True. And you're. You're ever going to find it. I mean, I I've lived in Brighton before is don't namedrop now you've Winchester to white Newbury west Newbury excuse. What? Won seven sixty eight sixty eight Tom Brokaw made his comments. And I think we all think who've may maybe Tom needs to we need to take the keys from dumb. Definitely we all get that much. Let's look at the comments. I just want to know where we are in two thousand nineteen with this stuff. Is it simulation? A bad word is the concept of learn English is hey guys Ryan Seacrest here and the arrival of the new year comes with time to try new things.

"Not bright. Not bright at all. His brother is a congressman Joaquin Castro. He is running for president. And he has got a plan. Now his plan is world class because it deals with the border and the issues that we have with security, and what Julian Castro has done is. He solved the problem. You see we we had a problem then Julian Castro put his massive brain to it and said I can solve this problem. And the way he's going to solve the problem is to track a legal immigrants using ankle monitors rather than detaining him. Okay. Can't make it up. He made the comments talking about how he would deal with migrant families crossing the southern border. This is according to the Washington Examiner. He said what I believe we could do and what the Obama administration did do I believe toward the end of its tenure was to look at things like ankle monitors. So that you're able to monitor where people are in the country. This is this is a very strange concept. Because what he's saying is. Don't worry about the border. Let everybody come in. And we'll just put an ankle monitor on them. And then we'll talk to him later. Tell me how this is a sound policy..

Espos instead of yelling management talk to you from the heart. Do you know that? What's that woman who pretends like she's a Republican and hates Trump and Ana Navarro? She's a Hispanic woman who. Is like pro illegal and attacks Trump on CNN every night. There was a another Hispanic man who was on with her at the same time. On CNN, and he was talking about people the person that was murdered by legal. And she was filing her nails. Like during the live CNN segment. And he said, are you kidding me? You're gonna file your nails while we talk about people who are murdered by legal immigrants, and she told him to basically. Piaf, basically. Joaquin Castro congressman from the San Antonio area. Democratic pours said Trump continues in tweet today said Trump continues to paint a picture of immigrants as rapists, murderers, criminals, all fear. Especially corporal, sings brother, right, corporal, sings brother continues to paint a picture of immigrants as rapists, murderers, and criminals, doesn't he? I mean. When when the police officer, murdered police officers, brother. Held holds a press conference with Trump today backing him up. Is he not helping Trump? Do what Joaquin Castro says he's doing is? He not. So then literally a man whose brother was slaughtered. What two weeks ago buying a legal as a police officer is also guilty of painting a picture of immigrants as rapists, murderers, and criminals and in all fear. So is working Castro willing to say that about corporal, sings brother. There was a woman whose son was a border patrol agent who was murdered by an illegal. She stood strong with President Trump. She talked with in a press conference with President Trump. Eight hundred two eight eight WBZ is our number eight hundred to eight eight nine two two seven. So most networks didn't carry the a lot of the press conference most networks won't show, and they cut away during scenes like MSNBC and CNN I watch CNN during stuff with the president today. I watched it live in where he talked to that head of the ports for border control. Today during his life press conference. I saw CNN carry like a minute or two and then they cut away. And it's just amazing. They don't want you to see the whole side. I I can't believe. Like can't can't people make up their minds for themselves. They have to craft it and hide it from you. It's crazy. It's crazy. So we're also being told that it's not a crisis. Jim Acosta at the wall. They're saying that it's not a crisis. Democrats saying it's not a crisis. Five to six hundred thousand people illegally apprehended illegally crossing our border in one year. And that's not a crisis. So many people that we cannot house them that we must release one two three thousand of them in the streets of El Paso, two weeks in a row two different times. And it's not a crisis. Are you kidding me? We all know, it is we all know it is. And I think the bar that Trump might have to show in court for emergency powers has been met. I think it's been mad. I think it's obvious. And we all know that. When you have people getting pepper spray when you have five hundred to six hundred thousand just last year alone when you have the highest number on record ever in December sixty thousand illegals with kids. Interested in December alone, five months in a row of larger larger larger numbers until the largest number ever on record. That's a crisis. Not having enough room in releasing them in the streets is a crisis at this is no question. There's no question. Now, the shutdown the strategy of using this as a shut shut down. And the fact that, you know, we're we're we're two days away from it being the longest shutdown in US history. We are two days away.

And I think we should go into no man's land on Saturday and on Sunday and on Monday. Bye bye going into the longest shutdown in American history. Ever. I think this is a test of Donald Trump's backbone and his spine. And I think when he set it on the wall at the wall today in mcallen when he said we are. When when he set it on the wall today.
