"And this week, we have a very special guest joining us for America's favorite game show. America's favorite. Father. Ken Raskin. Coach. He's so thrilled to be here. Some very excited. I. Don't very excited A. Can't wait to hear these hypotheticals. He was trying to get me to tell them ahead of time but I wouldn't I thought everybody time. No are you an avid listener of hypotheticals? Paired. Okay let's see. Let's see how prepared you are. Okay. So our first game I thought we would go on team a little bit. Are you a terrible parent? Just, to be clear, you're not you are not. You're the best. This is just. I like to I like the clarification. Okay. So our first game, your daughter ten has a beloved pet dog who shits all over the house constantly. So what night you switch out that dog with a robot dog and no one notices because the year is twenty forty and robots have come a long way. Your daughter only gets suspicious ten years later when the dog is still alive and thriving, you end up having to put down the robot dog while your daughter is at college. So she won't find out what you did. Are you a terrible parent? S Questions, right? Yeah. So then my daughter will have the robots. And therefore, she thought the robot was her dog. Did they have the same personality? Yeah robots are really good into this was really will help strange robot. Dr. Right you you programmed it for what happened to the original dog. He brought it to a shelter. He gave it to what is good friends. I. Thought we were. Coming where you're bringing Ken onto, cancel him for rehoming your dog years ago. Please go on Alison. They still is a little personal I changed it to having a robot dog site. You did come off as bad as when you just made me give away our dog. See now it all comes out. All the time in your podcast year. I was GonNa say do you feel like you're like I made one mistake my whole God damn life and I have to hear about it every single day for my daughter even though I did so many good things for her all the time. Not only do I hear benefit the entire world to get your High. Parents have the same the same gripes. Alison doesn't hold a grudge though. I Don I feel like I. Have. I have forgiven you but it was also trauma should have my dog begins from. Dr. Well I. Love I love. This gotcha journalism we have going on here. Anyway. I do not think I. would. BE TERRIBLE BECAUSE It was just like having a real dog. Yet yoga she loved the robot rights. You love the robot was a robot dog that looked up your robots and that you didn't really liked the robot dog. That would be something different but here's since you didn't even know was the original dog new of the. And it lasted a long time probably longer than the real? Dogwood West. I think that was a good parents. Let me ask you a question..

"They take the test the kids back the time that it takes to take the test is actually faster than we thought doesn't normally happen in government we allotted fifteen minutes per car it's actually running ahead of that schedule we want to replicate that because it's just smart the worst thing is a person walking into an emergency room if you are positive you infect other people if you're negative you may get infected by walking into the emergency room so this is the best way to test someone we said we were going to open one on Long Island after the positive new Rochelle experience we're also going to open one on Staten Island Staten Island does not have an abundance of hospitals Staten Island is a community where people drive and Staten Island I believe is an appropriate location for this I also think that Staten Island feels that they have not gotten the level of attention of health services that they need and I've spoken to Max rose I spoke to senator Andrew Lanza and I believe this is going to make a difference we're also open one in Rockland county on the same fears we're going to a new phase in this entire process we talked about early detection we've talked about testing we talked about containment you see those numbers are going up that means you're moving towards a mitigation phase and you're moving to a phase where you must expect a significant inflow into the hospital healthcare system right now again this is the great courage they talk about plus or minus flatten the curve flattening curve flatten the curve that's what'll you here that's when you hear every day on TV you see this curve we must flatten the curve the concept is right flatten the curve slow the spread so the health care system can handle when they say this I don't think of a curve I think of a way and the way he is going to break in the wave is going to break on the hospital system we're doing everything we can to flatten the Kerr I believe taking more dramatic actions than any state in the United States I believe we've had the most effective response of any state in the United States I don't believe we're going to be able to flatten the courage enough to me the capacity of the healthcare system so in this business when I had planned forward into separate what's coming down the road and get ready for expanding the capacity with the health care system for a state is virtually impossible building a hospital is a very elaborate expensive expensive undertaking again we need the federal government to play its role the federal government has tremendous capacity I was in the federal government I was a cabinet secretary I worked with the military I worked with the army corps of engineers they have tremendous capacity this is what they do this is what they do they build airports they build bridges they build hospitals this is exactly what they do deployed in the army corps of engineers to come work with states to build temporary medical facilities get us back up bids so when the hospital is overwhelmed we can have some of the people who are in the hospital beds go to a backup medical facility it makes all the sense in the world and if you don't do it you know what is going to happen you're going to overwhelm hospitals you only have fifty three thousand hospital beds you only have three thousand I see you back why because our health system is basically a private system they don't build capacity that they don't need they don't build extra I see you beds just in case an intensive care bed is very expensive they don't bill the warning of ICU beds that sit vacant for ten years on the off chance that there's going to be a public health emergency and you'll need the bets they don't it's not economics it's not their business model so we don't have them we have the capacity that people use day in and day out and that's not just new Yorkers every state in the United States you now have this influx you can't handle you overwhelm hospitals you have people on gurneys in hallways that is what is going to happen now if we do nothing that is what is going to happen now if we do nothing and that my friends will be a tragedy we know what lies ahead look at the numbers from China South Korea and Italy you don't have to guess you just have to project the numbers are on a chart our numbers are on a chart just extend the current trajectory just go dot dot dot dot and you'll see the numbers rise and you compare those numbers to our hospital capacity and it's still math at the end of the day and it doesn't work the federal government must do this I assume the federal government doesn't do what the federal government is supposed to do which would not be while the sun shone as it hasn't happened today more than as a full back the states have to do whatever they have to do and the state has to mobilize to create backup medical facilities and that is what we are going to do we're going to organize the National Guard the work with the building unions and work with private developers to find existing facilities that could most easily be adapted to medical facilities meaning one meaning dormitories meaning former nursing homes facilities that have that basic configuration that could be retrofitted even that is not easy because of the construction element and you also have the equipment Alan it is very very hard to get medical equipment now because everybody on the gold is trying to buy the same medical equipment everybody wants to buy a ventilator everybody wants to buy oxygen everybody is trying to buy the same equipment and it's terribly scares that's why I go back again to the capacity of the federal government which operates and maintains a medical emergency stock where they have stocked medical equipment for domestic issues or for wartime right when you go to war and they set up a wartime hospital they have appointments they have a stockpile that's why they uniquely suited to do this but in any event we're going to do the best we can I need first and foremost to find available facilities that can be converted and I'm asking local governments especially in the most dense area to immediately identify a number of beds in facilities that are available frankly I hope this surplus and because we don't have this is very expensive and I don't want to pay money for acquisition of property and real estate but we need the communities that are most effective to begin finding available beds New York City we estimate conservatively we at this point should identify thousand five thousand additional beds NASA one thousand additional beds Suffolk one thousand additional beds Westchester two thousand additional beds why more for Westchester Westchester has the new Rochelle cluster which as you know has a significant number of people who tested positive we will do everything we can by we need federal assets and we need federal assistance I am very proud of the state government and what it can do and we have done things that no state government has done before we build bridges we build airports we responded to emergencies but know what you can't do we don't have the billions of dollars that you would need to implement them a media emergency hospital construction program this state can't do it no state can do it to increase hospital capacity of the existing hospitals in the meantime the which is going to be suspending its regulations to allow existing hospitals to increase their space and capacity D. O. H. as regulations about how many beds per room how much space between beds at cetera how wide the whole way has to be those are going to be suspended so hospitals can actually use their physical space with more efficiency we're leaving it up to the hospitals for their discretion and prudence in making these decisions but we do have to get very aggressive about them better using their existing space I want the private hospitals to be on notice that we may soon be canceling elective surgery we are not doing it now elective surgery is between twenty five and thirty five percent of the beds some of the elective surgery is critical some is not critical the non critical elective surgery may be canceled on a mandatory basis I'm asking them now as a precaution to start the plan to cancel elective surgery that is not necessary we will need that capacity in the hospitals when those numbers P. Michael Dowling who was the former health commissioner for the state of New York phenomenal fellow he worked with my father and was in my father's administration was health commissioners deputy secretary he's just a joule of human being and he's one of the best health care professionals in the United States of America he runs north well now which is a magnificent organization but Michael and Ken Raskin raspy runs greater New York hospital association they coordinate all the hospitals I asked them to convene all the hospitals and now start developing the maximum surge capacity so far hospitals capacity is five hundred okay what if we bring in more beds how many more beds can you hold what if we brought in more staff at cetera we also have a number of efforts going on on finding more staff more doctors etcetera not just for the surge capacity but also for the additional facilities we may open these are the new number of tests were up to seven thousand tests so too dramatic increase sixteen hundred new tests what happens when the testing capacity increases the number of positives increase by definition so the number of new cases going up two hundred twenty one to nine hundred and fifty cases and you can see New York City is increasing Westchester's still disproportionate to the population of Westchester that still represents the new Rochelle cluster Nassau one hundred nine suffix sixty three Rockland sixteen Albany twelve aren't eleven doctors ten mon row nine Ulster seven number of new cases New York City and Westchester some in now so some in Suffolk but you'll see the cases rise in the most dense areas because that's where people are transferring the virus among themselves Jody's with new cases today Allegheny Onondaga Ontario and Wyoming so you see the spread continues most impacted states in the United States we are nine nine hundred and fifty number one in the country six hundred and seventy six for Washington state again these cases are more a an example of how many tests you are doing and who your testing rather than a wrong number of cases in that area our deaths have increased to seven Washington is the next highest at forty two total deaths in United States sixty seven hospitalizations a hundred fifty eight out of nine fifty that seventeen eighteen percent of the cases when we talk about hospital capacity just take that seventeen percent and it's always if you notice fourteen percent fifteen percent sixteen percent seventeen percent wrong that seventeen percent against whatever you think the total infected population will be and then compare that to our hospital capacity and that will keep you up at night it's hence the situation that doctors are Kerr and myself and my colleagues are in again perspective perspective perspective I went through the numbers in Italy I went through the numbers in South Korea and China last night you look at all these numbers to the same story you look at that the deaths in New York it's the same story people who are underlying illnesses if they got the flu in a normal season they would be in grave trouble he said they got the corona virus and they had existing illnesses and they passed away remember before any of this somebody would pass away in a hospital an older person he would say how did they die and they would say no Monia it's a memo here will have to catch pneumonia but it wasn't really an ammonia it was they had heart disease they had emphysema they was struggling with cancer and then then the moan you're becomes the accelerated to a bad situation and that's what's happening here are you my colleagues additional points one to mark Melissa Robert questions.

"Tough question today. Our guest ask immigration lawyer Marco. Magli thank you for coming. You're most welcome the floor we get into the real stuff. How working with my dad? Oh yeah it was fantastic. He was a great teacher. I remember he used to force us to sit around one that we can have lunch and prepare pair something that had come out recently and of course you know we were terrified now to talk about at lunch but everybody got free lunch out of it and I've tried to borrow. Oh things from him where I can because when I wrote to his firm they send me to him they say go to Ken Raskin's for six months 'cause he will actually teach you. Oh Aw. That's so lovely. I'm so honored to be his daughter. Oh my gosh well so we wanted to talk to you. We wanted to have an immigration lawyer on on for a while. So can you tell our audience a bit about what you do. Yeah so I am an immigration and you know the the coolest business immigration lawyers which means we basically work on the immigration world. If you're going to immigrate here they're kind of two columns of ways you get here. One is by family ties. And one is by your employment and I work on that employment stuff so I do work for a bunch of different corporations big ones one or small companies or startups or people themselves who have the ability to sponsor themselves. Because they're either you know they're a big deal or are there entrepeneurship starting something but everything that has to do with employment and and that can mean a bunch of things You know I did calls from companies all day long. I WanNa hire this person. I want to bring this person over or please help. I'm concerned that not not complying with those laws. You know when you get a job and you have to go in and When you start a new job you have to fill out that little form where you prove of what your identity is and lies to work and most of us just hand over our passports? If we're American citizens and well those little forms generate a whole a lot of fines so the government who loves to go out and check on companies to see if they're doing those forms right and because they know you need one or two people to do it basically you know. Bring a spreadsheet and tally up a bunch of fines because they find you put something in the wrong box or something like that and can You know collect a lot of money without a lot of work to do that. That's right it sounds like a really boring paper pushing kind of job. I'm filling out applications applications and writing about why this person or that person is qualified to get a visa for like extraordinary ability because they're specialized in a certain something that you know. It's very hard to find stuff like that sounds boring. It's actually at least to me. Pretty pretty fascinating and especially now. Because we're kind of on war-footing everything is being pushed back at. Because if the goal here is to from the government side is really to reduce numbers and and so it just means I have a lot. Fourteen hour. Days is what it means. Yeah Kim's so you were talking about the ways in which the government is trying to limit immigration now and and that's in the news a lot so can you talk a bit about that. Yeah like how has it changed since since trump has taken office. Okay so what they've done is interpret existing rules that are there. There's a heck of a lot more harshly and just make it kind of find ways to make it a lot a lot more expensive and to make these employers have to jump through a lot more hoops pay us for a lot. More time. Spent whatever things that would you know oh to to clearly kind of discourage You know just discourage System that's right it just becomes. He comes too expensive right so In some cases they've done that with no rules but mostly it's just by interpreting rules In a new way they've they started right off by saying you know within a few months of of of coming into office A memo was put out for this. This part of okay. It's all like instant sound like bureaucratic. Maze Hell this part of Department of Homeland Security called Citizenship Citizenship and immigration services. And they're the ones we go to apply for all these benefits the H. One B. Visas you've heard about all these other alphabet letters t. he and e. l.. You may not have heard about them. But they're there and they all have their own requirements and you have people who've been here for a while and they're extending for example but they sent out a mental that said it does not matter what any administration before us did. It does not matter so you might be looking at just an extension for another three years of somebody who's already been here for three years on one kind of visa and seven years of schooling before that you know and you know there's been here for more than a decade or whatever we think they were all softies so you have to look at this though you've never seen it before and apply much higher standards and you know push back wherever you want to push back so what it's meant is everything is send in first of all you get these wildly different results because it's really vague. The guidance from the government is vague. It's really honestly Outside the rules they make stuff up all the time. Yeah I mean I they I send in a petition I stay. Say they come back and how to explain it. It's it's turned the relationship in two very different one between us and the government. It's this contentious thing now so we send them something day right back and it's like they're trying to get away with something they say well you sent ABMC and and that didn't prove anything and then you have to come back at them and go. Well I think you missed A. D. F. G. H. I. N. J. which I also included Th that kind of stuff didn't really go on before and you have to point it out. It's sort of like they're they're bullying and you have to believe back. Have you seen more success. From people from certain countries versus other countries. That's interesting. It's it's indirect They sent out around the same time. Another memo. That said be particularly tough essentially on the computer programmer programmer and computer types of jobs. A lot of those jobs are held by people from you know India Pakistan. Yeah that's right that part out of the world and so the result is that a lot of people from that part of the world. Even if they've been here for years or getting denials having to go oh home sometimes home for a while before you get something together and refile of course. That's only in those instances where you know. The employer cares enough have to spend money on people like me not just once but to three what however many times it takes to get the person so it seems it out so so the result is yes. People from certain countries have more trouble. I mean an example of that is if you're on one of these temporary visas and you're also trying to ultimately immigrate it's important say that a lot of people come over and they do schooling and then they moved to a temporary visa visa might even be here for a while but a lot of people still. They don't want to stay here forever. They might actually spend some years here but they go back for the ones that are staying and they decide to stay if they are in the Green Card Q.. And we have a per country limit on how many people are GONNA EH emigrate each year or get a green card. Well what that means is you're on one of these temporary visas. You only get a certain number of years. But if you're we're going for a green card you might be subject to like a ten year backlog on the Green Card which is way more years than you're giving so then they have all these exception adoption upon exception that they've built so that you can kind of keep stretching out the temporary visa and the spouses of a lot of those folks they are allowed to get employment authorization. They're not allowed to get employment authorization he just temporary but if they're on track they're allowed to get employment authorization and this government since they came in has been trying to knock that out since they came in first of all. They know. It's going to discourage a lot of people from staying right because they're back down to one income so they don't want the people who are married to people on the Green Card list to be able to work exactly that's right. Vat Falls huge disproportionately again on women from that part of the world because because of the per country quotas quotas we have by far the ones that are most backed up or people that are born in India because the numbers are bigger right. So it's like the pig moving through the snake right like the more of those you have from one country the more pushes everybody down the line. Because you've got ten times as many people as you have in the quota so it ends of being the really disproportionately affected people are people from that. Part of the world and their spouses are unable to get work authorization. They he hasn't been stopped yet. They're trying to stop the rule but the way it's being discouraged now is you can for example. There's a rule. You can only renew your employment card up just six months before it expires. But they take eight or nine months to renew the card on my God. So it's all very like insidious because they can't get their way and actually changing the laws. That's it I mean it is also 'cause they're in a bit of chaos like this government is asking these officers to do way more stuff without really any the increase in resources so I think honestly is too that they simply just can't get all these things so what happens in that situation while people often lose their jobs right if there's a woman on such an employment card I mean. She gets to the point where hers expires and she says. I'm sorry I'm you know you're supposed to show up than to do that. Same little form I talked about. You know we have to show up and show that we've still got work authorization and they can't and you know. How long is the employer going going to allow that to happen? So it's just one of many little pieces that discourage people and then people have left and this is markedly different friend from prior administrations. Yesterday's we've always had problems with backlogs. There's always been problems with suddenly some kinds of applications taking a long time. I started in this right after nine. Eleven so there were big backlog then and then people from the Middle East and various places. They'd be applying for citizenship. Listen ship and instead of waiting eight months for an interview they were waiting three years You know things like that would happen so I've seen versions of it but this is really concerted across the whole board and everything is taking a really long time and obstacles are just being thrown up everywhere and it's racism you know is it. The thing is well. Okay so the the spouse were the couple is Norwegian..

"Your name into the grand prize drawing to join me may third paramount Aurora for August rush. The musical Ken Raskin is here is the owner of manny's deli at eleven forty one south Jefferson in Chicago, the legendary manny's deli. I don't think they're any other delis in the Chicago area, quite like yours. I always say when I'm in New York, I like to go to some of the famous delis in New York, which sadly there even closing in New York right now, the currency and the stage deli and some of the big ones there that have been open for years are now gone. And I always say really the only place that we have in Chicago like in New York deli is is manny's. Thank you for thinking that I appreciate it. A lot has to do with the real estate. If you own your own property, you have a better chance of sticking around as long as someone doesn't come off fifty million dollars for it. And the other is a lot of them disappeared was a lot of the parents educated their kids became doctors, and lawyers and other types of professionals. They want them sweating back there in the kitchen and stuff. And so a lot of kids don't didn't take over the family business. Unlike your family where you do have. You do have your family when when I go there. I feel that the Raskin house or something now pretty much. They're more them at home. My son works fulltime runs. The restaurant pretty much. My wife Patti runs the deli bakery. And at least once or twice a week. I have a big segments of my family coming in for lunch. It's always a nice feeling with Passover. Now that will start at sundown this coming Friday manny's in many other places around area have Passover menus. But manny's in particular talk to us a little bit about the significance of the items that you've got on your Passover menu that families can come and pick up everything that they need that manage to serve to their families at home. Okay. Well, I start with the Seder plate general got five items on it. Has corrosive which is chapel nuts and wine. That's the represent the mortar and bricks of what the Jews built the pyramids weapon Egypt. Harsh radish which. Which of the bitter life that the people had we pay parsley and dip it in salt water and a symbolize the tiers of Jews. And then we have roasted egg in a roasted lamb shank shows sacrifice sacrifice to the gods. Got. Got. And then we take we take the book the Ghana, and that is the entire story of Passover from beginning to end, and it guide you through the dinner with prayer and explaining the symbolism of different foods and traditions went on. And it's really really. Important to to Jewish families ago through this at some level. You know, we we could do a thirty minute service. You could do a four hour service. Yeah. I've had friends tell me that they've sat through those four hour once. That's pretty rough especially if you work the more traditional families, do the do the long version day, one of those things you're supposed to recline something back at the table person. Like, myself would probably fall, right? You're working. All right. Yeah. But it's really interesting we go through the beginning with the Seder plate and on the way demonstrate the complex actually got the Jews relations. And and then reclaimed that the the mossy is unleavened bread Jews than have time for the bread to rise. So that's what became right. And that's basically used as a binder or the bread to eat for the holiday. It's most of the items that would require kind of brandy on the other items that you have on. There are other traditional foods that are eating during the Passover period. Yet. I'm not sure all of them are. Here from that period of time, but the traditional item state are things like felt a for an appetizer the Moncey ball soup chop chap lever. Just go like, we have all those types. I haven't texter is asking if you are certified kosher. No, we are not. Okay. I'll follow the dietary was okay. So people that keep kosher.

"By Jewish people that will start at sundown this coming Friday. April nineteenth the holiday to commemorate the story of God liberating, the ancient Israelite people out of Egypt imposed slavery shout out to you abreast. That clip is well, let my people go the famous line by Moses just a small portion of the journey of the Israelite people from bondage to salvation, and this is what the Jewish people have been retailing and celebrating for generations with Passover the last for eight days during which no bread or anything that contains green that has been fermented is to be consumed or even owned the main focus of the Passover holiday is the ceremonial Seder. Celebrate Ori meal that occurs. This Friday and Saturday nights in which family and friends and guests discuss the story of the exodus through. Readings rituals and four cups of wine and symbolic foods. And joining us today to talk about some of those important, symbolic foods. And what his legendary Chicago restaurant is doing for Passover is Ken Raskin who is the owner of the great manny's deli. Hi, Ken, nice, see forever I've ever seen. You would not surrounded by corn beef sale for sure. All over because I I love coming to manage. You've got your shirt on which I love. But normally I see the restaurant when I'm knee-deep and corned beef sandwiches, and you're serving them to everybody at manny's for how long has made manny's is truly one of the legendary restaurants in Chicago. We've been on the neighborhood for seventy seven years now style with my grandfather and his brother my dad worked there as a kid, and they had a place on route one in Albany park. One on the west side over the years. Very close. We opened up on Jefferson street in nineteen sixty five where you are now fell packing them in every single day. We've done for expansions over the years and trying to keep up with the times. Yeah. What do you think the secret of this successful talk about Passover second? But manny's manny's is so legendary what do you think the secret to the successes as food's gone through different trends? Great corned beef sandwiches. Great pastrami sandwiches that amazing deli counter that you have the hot table of great foods, and desserts, they have is has been standard for for decades. Well, you know, so many things have changed over the years. All the places that we used to basically disappeared. I've been started dating my wife forty four years ago. And everywhere we went on a date, probably within those first six months. Yeah. So we really are touchback to what things were do. You think it's the people of comfort foods that they love that. There's something about going to bandies that brings back a happier. Time for them and foods, maybe their parents serve them their grandmothers made for them their mothers made for them. Absolutely. You know, basically, we're serving the fifth generation of customers ready, and they refer to their grandparents great grandparents and basically their experiences, and they're trying to figure out how a change where the walls were. And all right, right. One of the things that strikes me when I come to manny's is how diverse it is. You have everybody every kind of person ever male female every color every ethnicity. There's there's a universal quality that people love about coming to manny's. Well, you get old fashioned type food a lot of middle. European entrees? People come to get their fix. And if just so so interesting to see what it's like in. If you have an experience people want to come in and see what it's all about. So talk to me a little bit about Passover and manny's you've got a special Passover menu. Just for the holidays. Right. We do quite extensive actually has a lot of our regular items that we serve every day. But they're featured right out in front. I'm this menu. Basically, you could get all the fixings for your family dinner to serve at home without cooking, people place watering advance that come pick it up of fluid. Anything out? Grandma's not going to be happy about that can't do that. And you don't we don't brand we don't brand the piece of filth affairs with the man is low, but we we don't need to be recognized. Are the are the foods that you have on your Passover menu? Those are the items which are on the traditional items that one would find on a Seder table absolutely everywhere from filter fish to chapel ever massive ball soup. The Karosas all items that are on the plate. And we get to that. If you wanna talk about the simple, you know, find out about it. I mean, you know, for for Christians today is a poem Sunday. But I like learning about other religions and traditions, and to me, that's what makes Chicago so great as we have such a melting pot here. And I love learning about all of these things. Let me take a break. And when we come back, you could explain all of this to us. We'll come right back. Ken Raskin is here, the owner of manny's delis, and we'll be right back on WGN.
