Andy Field, White House And President discussed on Afternoon News with Tom Glasgow and Elisa Jaffe
"Source that when Kirsten Nielsen was homeland security secretary she was barred from briefing, President Trump on potential future Russian threats to US selections. ABC news Washington correspondent Andy field's been looking into this. And joins us. Now, Andy from what's been learned from the source at appears the administration was more focused on border security than cybersecurity. Well, also seems to be a focus on preventing anyone from mentioning Russian interference to the president in the White House. The fact is is that not only did Russia interfere in the last election, but they continue to try to do it in the last midterm elections and were told they're working on trying to interfere in the two thousand twenty elections. But the president doesn't want to hear that. In fact, he is publicly said he even disputes it ever happening. He stood by famously next of Ladimir Putin at a summit and said, I don't see any reason why they would do it. Although the several days later after getting the blow back from that sit on I misspoke. I said, I don't see any reason why they would would wouldn't do it. But no one really believed the second part of that. They're now we're being told that Kirsten Neilsen wanted said, this is such an urgent issue that she wanted. The president in the cabinet, and she was told he can't do it. So they basically did all this planning behind his back without him knowing about it, Andy we are hearing from the White House, though, they're they're putting together a little different scenario on this and their pushback. What are they saying? Well, white has acting White House chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, says he doesn't recall anything along those lines happening at any meeting. But of course, he has not been the chief of staff for all that law. I think it was only last fall. So this could have happened before that here. Then of course, he blamed the Obama administration saying they knew about Russian actions did nothing in the Trump administration will not tolerate foreign interference. In fact, the secretary of state the other day said that they're warning their Russian counterparts about their steadfast requirement that Russia, not engage in activity that impacts our democracy. But basically that's kind of wagging your finger saying don't you do that? But it doesn't seem to be a whole lot at least publicly that they've told. Us that is in place to prevent it from

"Track officials have now announced an indefinite suspension of Racine at the famed facility. They really don't know what's going on. They think because of the heavy rain we've had about eleven to thirteen inches of rain here since December. Maybe it's done something to the track and horses some of them and races. Some of them in training have been breaking their legs. And of course, they've been euthanized from that. But track officials are just baffled, and it's a horrible story. Twenty one horses dying since December US customs and border protection began counting family units. And there have been two point six million total amp. Attentions along the us Mexico border, the numbers with a sharp is evidence yet that despite President Trump's efforts to crack down on illegal immigration the flow of migrants is only growing while families along with a relatively small number of unaccompanied children. Now make up sixty percent of the arrests at the border. Total numbers are rising there as well. The border patrol may two hundred sixty seven thousand arrests between October and the start of the federal fiscal year and in February compared with one hundred and thirty six thousand over the same period a year ago. I thought we check in with Howard bloom who has written a book called the Lucifer principle Howard. This is a weird situation. It seems like more people are trying to get in a legally then when we started talking about this when the president was elected. Well, it's not exactly what it appears to be. So the real question is do we have a crisis on our border with Mexico? We don't we now secretary of the department of homeland security Kirsten. Nielsen made a powerful case for an emergency today. Her testimony before the house homeland security committee, so powerful that the tea party called it frightening, and in a sense. It was frightening. But only in a sense, what did Nielsen actually say she predicted that one million illegal aliens, we'll try to cross the Mexican border this year. She pointed to an eighty percent increase in the number of illegals compared to the same time last year, she warned of sexual slavery, drugs, criminals and violence spilling into our country. Every week those are her words, she talked of again, her words recycling rings were innocent young people are used multiple times to help aliens gain illegal entry and she reported. A fifty percent spike in the number of gang members coming across the border, but also pointed out these increases will overwhelm the system entirely. She emphasized that this is not a manufactured crisis. And she added that this is truly an emergency. Meanwhile nielsen. Explains something odd that you touched on a second ago. She said, quote, what's different about the current migrant flows is not just how many people are coming. But who is coming? And who didn't they also say was arriving, quote, historically, she pointed out even legal aliens crossing into the United States will predominantly single adult males. But in recent years, she continued we have seen the number of populations children and families skyrocket. Over sixty percent of the current flow are family units and unaccompanied alien children. So is what Nielsen portrayed really, the flood of murderers, rapists, and gang members. The president has warned us about since he first came down the elevator Trump Tower in two thousand fifteen to announce his presidency, not really not at all. Now, let's zoom out and get a little bit of perspective. If there was a crisis. It was in two thousand when over one point six million immigrants were arrested on the Mexican border. Even if we reach Kirsten Nielsen. Projected figure of a million this year that would be over thirty percent less than the migrants who crossed the border illegally in two thousand thirty percent less. What's more, George W Bush and Barack Obama drove that number down to a tiny fraction? They chopped it down from one point six million to three hundred thousand that this year has seen a Trump uptick, but there are a few far more important truths. If Nielsen is right and a million emigrants is crisis. Then the years two thousand and two thousand one we're catastrophic, but the total car crime rate in the USA has gone down. A whopping thirty percent since two thousand and gang activity in American went down in two thousand two thousand and one and two thousand and three years of the immigrant tidal wave in fact, under Donald Trump, the number of gangs in America's going back up that there's something truly dangerous. We are missing Cureton. Nielsen is head of the homeland security department a department formed in the wake of nine eleven and there are more. Dire threats then unarmed mothers and their children at the border. There are three crises of a witch. There is no debate number one is Kim Jong UN's nuclear weapons and his three stage intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching US cities. Number two is debt that just hit twenty two trillion dollars for the first time and number three is a balance of trade deficit that today hit the highest annual level in history. Eight hundred and ninety one point three billion dollars close to a trillion dollars. Now, should we really spend twenty five billion a wall to stop invading mothers and children or should we focus on these three greater threats? Or should we keep our sense of balance walk into gums, simultaneously and try to handle them? All can we do that though? Howard. That's the big question. I'd not sure we can. Thank you. Howard bloom.

That does not have any fencing or constructed security barrier of any kind the convicted terrorist Hector role. Luna known as El, Tori. Convicted in two thousand eight terror attack on the consulate in Monterrey, Mexico that can't be good news. Convicted terrorists taking over a drug cartel and a part of our southern border. That is uncertain insecure. All the more reason we need the wall where something more than what we have right now. Because obviously these things are happening just across the border. You can imagine eventually it does come into this country. In fact, most of our drugs that are in this country are coming from south of the border. Now ninety percent of all heroin event will come from the southern border through ports of entry on through other get snuck across as well. But it they find point seven billion dollars at the president is seeking as part of these negotiations and that was recommended to him by the border patrol agents. These are the areas that they feel they need to have this again, the wall is going to be these the steel slats. There that are see through that are going to have some of these smart technology on top of this wall. Drones infrared things of this nature, motion, detectors, etc. To help you know with the border patrol policing. But this is what the border patrol asked for and these are in the most vulnerable areas like south of Laredo, Texas, where there is currently no fencing nothing at all. And so that's where the five point seven billion kinda comes from. That's why the president is insistent because the border patrol themselves told them we need it. We have to have jobs without I think the Democrats right now, if some philanthropic individual come forth and say, I'll pay for the wall, you know, I'll pay for the beginning stages of the wall. And put up billions of dollars. The Democrats would still find a way to object to it. Because it now it's immoral. It wasn't immoral in two thousand six and two thousand thirteen when they all voted for walls and wasn't immoral when voting for walls and other countries, but it's only a more because birds and Trump wants the wall they're bunch of hypocrites. And they don't care about the American people. The only care about power Nancy Pelosi's power, mad, power, hungry and power has gone out directly to her head. And and this is what more I think is up to I think molars trying to get rid of Trump and Pence, and and then put Pelosi in power as president of the United States. That's what I think the ultimate end game is in this is soft coup. Because if you have enough to take down Trump or think, they do then Pence is just a mirror that will be a formality. It's going to be difficult to get Trump out of there. I agree. But you know, it is something that is that is the goal, by the way, Chuck you schemer now already saying the president's not going to be part of the negotiations.

But meanwhile, the Trump administration is moving ahead with plans to construct or upgrade border fencing, some one hundred sixty miles along the Arizona and California borders with Mexico, active duty military will take up the task here to tell us more is NPR's Pentagon. Reporter Tom Bowman and Tom what exactly is the task with? What is the Pentagon going to be doing? Well, I'm told this fencing said likely combat engineers for the fencing portion of this effort, but it goes beyond that homeland security's requesting medical units, of course, two children died along the border with in the custody of US officials at the centers they need additional help for the migrants coming through and also told aviation units would be part of this as well. They provide surveillance along the border to help customs and border protection, monitor any movements. And again, this is so. Support for that effort. Active-duty troops can't get involved in any arrest or detention of any migrants, it's against the law and to be clear. This is something new. This is on top of the existing troops already deployed to the border. Right. So this is new this is just coming out. Now this request was made from homeland security. How many more we talking? Well, we don't know at this point. I heard some one official said maybe thousands of troops and other said, well, the existing truce might be able to help. There are now twenty three hundred act of troops there on the border along with twenty one hundred guard forces they could provide some of this effort, but clearly they're going to send additional troops. They could change them out or some could be extended but acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan hinted about more support at a cabinet meeting at the White House yesterday. Let's listen restoration of the fences building out and additional mileage from the law. The army Corp. Engineers is dialed in on doing this cost-effectively quickly on the right amount of urgency as to where we built additional stand up walls quickly get after the threat. The threat is real. And he goes on to say that he'll provide assistance to homeland security secretary Kirsten Nielsen who's making the request to the Pentagon anytime line on how long these duty troops might be there. No idea. I was told it could be months to construct the fencing or shore up existing fencing, you know, we're talking one hundred and sixty miles or so now fencing right act of troops were supposed to end their deployment, by the way at the end of the month. So some could be extended maybe other units could take their place. But what we don't know. Right. Will the Pentagon is working on the specific? So we don't have a lot of detail at this point. Let me insertive skeptical question here, the president has said if he doesn't get money for a wall from congress. He might just order the military to build it is that what is going on here. The president doing something of an end run around the border standoff. That's quite possible. At this point, the talks with congress, the Democrats in particular appear to be going nowhere. The Pentagon the president wants five billion dollars for the wall. The Democrats saying that's far too much. In the standoff continues the government shutdown. But of course, a Pentagon has not shut down. And they're ready to take orders from the commander in chief. Thank you. You're welcome NPR's. Tom Bowman one person. And we'll be looking at the Trump administration's immigration policies is the new chairman of the House Judiciary committee, New York, Democrat Jerrold Nadler, welcome to the program. Thank you. Now. Your committee has oversight over many key areas. Right Justice department, voting rights and an immigration as we mentioned on that last issue. You told CBS that the zero tolerance policy that led to the separation of migrant families on the border was a deliberate creation of the White House that they're trying to make things as miserable as possible. In quote, if kids die there apparently willing to have that. Yes. To investigate the deaths of those two migrant children. Yes, we are. We're going to investigate the deaths of those two migrant children and the entire family separation policy. And there are a lot of questions. How could they for example, deport parents to foreign countries? He's making no provision to give the kids back I or even to figure out identification for the kids. So we have kids now months later that may never find your parents again. State-sanctioned kidnapping. Does it feel like investigative actions and oversight? That's really the only recourse. Democrats have right now. Does it feel like you have no real ability to change Trump administration policies? No doesn't feel that way. At all. And you can't talk about that the first day of democratic control, and the new congress, we have a we have leverage investigation, and, publicity, and and oversight is a major constitutional responsibility. And ability that we have the number to the power of the purse, you can't pass a budget without the house as well as the Senate, and we can put requirements in that budget. We can put limitations on the use of funds we can put requirements for the use of funds and so forth. So even if you cannot pass. Subject matter Bill through both houses of the president would veto it. They can't pass a budget without the house consent. So we have considerable leverage. You've also on another topic. You've sponsored a Bill that would protect the special counsel office. Robert Muller was investigating interference in the two thousand sixteen election introduce that Bill today, and you've also threatened to subpoena acting attorney general Mr. Whittaker what do you hope to learn from him? We are very concerned about a massive fraud. And the American people by the president by his campaign in order to obtain office through fraudulent means hush money payments to women Michael Cohen working with the Russians plus obstruction of Justice in the investigation of that we have to look into all of that. And the special counsel is looking into that or into some of it insofar as they may be crimes, but we have to look into all of that to protect the integrity of our elections and the integrity of our democratic system and to protect the American people from being defrauded by by the Trump campaign Ovalles future campaigns for that matter. So that is the prime thing that we have to do we have to put an end to Republican efforts over the last two years to interfere with an undermine the special counsel's investigation. If the Muller investigation uncovers evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors are you prepared to pursue impeachment? And even if it's politically unpopular it's too early. To talk about impeachment. But what is important at this point is to follow all the facts where they lead to make sure that those facts are public and to make sure that they're not interfered with by the Trump administration. So if a special counsel issues report, we have to make sure that that report is is it becomes public. If necessary we'll subpoena it necessarily will quote Muller to testify in front of the committee about it. We have to make sure that it's not varied by the Trump administration. Bye bye Whitaker or by bar. The President Trump has been implicated and campaign law violations. As part of Michael Collins plea, something like that an impeachable offense. It could be that. I don't wanna get into impeachment now. 'cause it when we're not prepared for that. At this point. The some of what he's been accused of could be impeachable. Offenses. But the real question now is to find out what happened to find out. What frauds were committed but frauds against American democracy. And to make sure the public knows that the public can judge, and we can judge in the judiciary committee instead of where we should go from there whether to be impeachment whether it should be protective legislation for the future. Whatever it may be. And you were earlier you were speaking about William bar, the White House nominee for attorney general. Yes. And and the acting attorney general Mr. Whittaker is it possible that you will overplay your hand.
Kirsten Nielsen, Nick Valencia And El Paso discussed on 24 Hour News
"Secretary Kirsten Nielsen visited medical officials in border patrol agents at the border of the Arizona, Texas borders of Mexico over the past few days after promising more wellness screenings for migrant children following the deaths of the two children in border patrol custody. Let's get an update now from correspondent Nick Valencia in El Paso, all of this happening against the backdrop of migrants still being dropped off at this bus station. We have heard from the president who said that catch and release is over. But that's. Not what we're seeing here. We've continued to see migrants dropped off by volunteers in white vans with really very limited resources, if not for the volunteers helping out I they would really have nothing at all. And no plans and nowhere
"Catch and return": U.S. asylum seekers will have to wait in Mexico
"Secretary Hairston Nielsen announcing that effective immediately. Certain asylum seekers who arrive in the US illegally from Mexico. We'll have to wait in Mexico during the course of their hearings her testimony earlier today before the house committee today, I am announcing historic measures to bring the situation under control effective immediately. The United States will begin the process of invoking section to thirty five b to see the immigration and nationality act once implemented individuals arriving in or entering the United States from Mexico illegally or without proper documentation may be returned to Mexico for the duration of their immigration proceedings. They will not be able to disappear into the United States. They will have to wait for a provable to come into the United States. If they are granted asylum by US judge. They will be welcomed into America. If they are not they will be removed to their home countries. Let me be clear we will undertake these steps consistent with our domestic and international legal obligations, including our humanitarian commitments. We have notified the Mexican government of our intended actions in response. Mexico has informed us that they will commit to implement essential measures on their side of the border. Give a civil Tate this process, by providing humanitarian assistance, they have announced that affected migrants will receive humanitarian visas to stay on Mexican soil. They will be given the ability to apply for work and be given other protections while they oh, wait a US legal determination in the coming days. We will discuss it. Mexico ways to ensure the limitation of our decision in a way that is transparent effective and ensures safe and orderly flow. Moreover as was announced by the United States and Mexico in December eighteen both countries are also committed to work on a comprehensive plan to reduce irregular migration across the region. This is something I have personally spent years pursuing behind the scenes, I had dozens of meetings with leaders from the northern triangle, convened, private sector executives and put forth proposals to address the root causes of illegal migration. We look forward to working with our Mexican partners to jointly address smuggling trafficking illegal cross border activity throughout Central America. Once and for all I cannot overstate the significance of these developments. We are taking lawful unilateral action to stop illegal entry now Mexico is taking its own appropriate actions in response, and our two countries have committed to a major regional plan to solve this crisis. Well, the department of homeland security is claiming that they've seen a two thousand percent increase in migrants. Calling it a credible. Fear of these. Trying to come into this country the first step to asylum and that asylum claims last year rising by nearly seventy percent compared to twenty sixteen. Meanwhile, the lawyers for the family and that seven year old Guatemalan girl who died in the custody of the customs and border protection. Office are calling for a thorough and independent review under the child's death echoing demands from a number of members of congress secretary Neil Neilson, speaking about her tragic death at today's hearing. But today, I want to focus on one of our core missions in particular, our duty to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws. This is one of the highest priorities of the president the administration and my department. Indeed, it is among the most fundamental responsibility of any sovereign nation. We face a crisis at our border, a real serious and sustained crisis. We have tens of thousands of illegal aliens arriving at our doorstep every month, we have drugs criminals and violence spilling into our country every week, and we have smugglers, and traffickers who profit for human misery every single day by exploiting people who are seeking a better life saving them about our laws and feeling everything from sexual slavery for the smuggling of illicit goods this chain of human misery is no more evident than with the tragic death of seven year old Jacolin Kalmykian. Her death has deeply affected the border patrol agents involved in her case and the entire department. My heart goes out to her family and loved ones and our entire department mourns this tragedy, and then there was this often emotional exchange between Illinois democratic congressman Luis Gutierrez and the homeland secure. Secretary Kirsten Nielsen. But it is repugnant to me an astonishing to me that during Christmas. Call them the holiday seasons to be inclusive, but during Christmas because majority always wants to just call it Christmas during Christmas time in which we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. A Jesus Christ who has a plea or his life. With Mary and Joseph. Thank god. There wasn't a wall that stopped him from seeking refuge in Egypt. Thank god. That wall wasn't there. And thank God. There wasn't administration like this or he would have to have perished on the twenty eight and the day of innocence. When Herod ordered the murder of every child under two years of age. Maybe I haven't gone a lots of Bye-bye school. But I know that part thank God. Shame on everybody that separates children and allows them to stay at the other side of the border fearing death thing hunger free sickness shame on us for wearing our badge of Christianity during Christmas and allow the secretary to come here and lie. Thank you. Gentlemen, has expired secretary would we'd cared respond to any other than to say that calling me a liar fighting words, not a liar. We've never had a policy for family separation. I'm happy to walk the gentlemen, through it again policy of family separation with me that any family that I encountered in the interior. I would separate it would mean that any family that I found it eventually I would separate it would mean that every single family that I found illegally crossing. We would separate. We did. None of those what we did do is cold the laws that congress has passed and we prosecuted those who choose to come here illegally as far as not being compassionate. Let me just tell you what I have done. And of course, he can't be bothered to stay. So I'm happy to tell the rest of the committee. What we have done is. We have worked extensively with the northern triangle countries to find ways to help vulnerable populations as soon in their journey as possible. The current system puts them at the cans of those who prey on them and who abused them. So we've worked extensively to increase. Silence. Capacity to help them as soon as possible we've worked on child exploitation, including very unfortunate new crimes which are lied distance. Abused for somebody goes online at direction abuser. And how'd you use a child as they watch that is a crime that D H S investigates and prosecutes we have worked against traffickers. We have the first anti-smuggling anti-trafficking strategy, this January we do investigations, we help survivors. I take personal offense on behalf of the two hundred and forty thousand men and women of the department of homeland security. Thank you, sir. That was the department secretary testifying before the House Judiciary committee, by the way, the seven year old girl who died in Texas hospital. She died on December the eighth two days after being taken in by border patrol custody at a remote area along the New Mexico border. Her father claimed that they were denied the basics including water while in custody, the border patrol office

The other one is cement at himself. Chris cuomo. I mean, come on more mothers than monsters. It makes me wonder did these people really believe the stuff that's coming out of their mouths. I mean, you gotta wonder sometime. Well, here are the facts on that particular contention, and the facts are straight from the source Kristen Neal's or Kirsten Nielsen the. Secretary of homeland security on Monday, put out a statement about this. And I'm just going to read a couple of sentences of her statement, again, this is the secretary of homeland security Kirsten Nielsen on Monday. She says, quote, we cannot confirm the backgrounds and identities of all caravan members which possesses a national security and public safety restrict country. However, at this point, we have confirmed that there are over six hundred convicted criminals, traveling with the caravan flow. This includes individuals known to law enforcement for assault battery drug charges, burglary, rape, child abuse and more. This is serious. Additionally, Mexico has already arrested one hundred caravan members for criminal violations in Mexico close quote, so I would ask Mr. Cuomo more mothers than monsters, Mr. Cuomo. You can decide. But it's just it's ridiculous. Okay. The third lie that I want to talk about is the contention among the mainstream media and their fellow travellers on the left in the Democratic Party that deploying troops to the border, which President Trump did weeks ago was wrong and unnecessary. And I think this is probably the most blatant example of bias was this contention that it was unnecessary and wrong to do this. And some of them even said that it was a legal got one little clip. We wanna play here. Could you hit that police? It is inappropriate..

Get down to Russia and Russia, the investigation being called a hoax and then you have people like Well some big, names like Dan Coats for. Example but also for that matter Kirsten Nielsen John Bolton, they're, all pretty seriously suspicious of Putin. And Russia, and they've all said things that really go, against the line that we're hearing. From Rudy Giuliani and the president The glass Thursday and they've brought out. Basically you, know a bunch of cabinet heads which was unprecedented at least since I started covering the Trump White House, since the inauguration to answer questions about how their each, taking on, how each agency from the department of homeland security to the national intelligence agencies you know to the FBI how they're. Taking this threat of Russian interference in elections and just a US institution seriously and then just hours later at his rally in Pennsylvania you know Trump completely undermined all of these people and and everything that they had said by saying that all, of this without and so it's just it's interesting thing where you know these agencies. Are, sort of going ahead and saying, that they're. Trying to combat all of, this, working on it, and spending money and doing programs and meeting with, people in the private sector and the president just hours later completely undercuts done and dismisses at all those efforts And I think we've seen that again and again with policy things obviously with. This there's quite a bit stake and you mentioned Pennsylvania it seems like Pennsylvania has redefined to some extent the idea that the press is the enemy of the people because now we have Kellyanne Conway also saying well not really the enemy of, the people it's fake news it's the enemy and there's that attempt again to quantify Qualify let me get some. Callers on there. Let's go to, Berkeley I and welcome Louise Louise China's Hi my comment or question is to the recorder that they, often talk about what some believe the way I feel the way I perceive his tweets and comments and she just. Strategizes to say something that plausibly persuasive. To face and has. Nothing to do with belief system Monaco let me go to? You, on this there is the perception that the. President is, always talking to his base and maybe there isn't a belief system behind that or know, since he, waiver so often and tugs out of both sides what are, we to believe in terms of what he believes well you know a couple of points on this, I mean I think that the callers right that the president does generally speak just to his base you know he's had plenty of opportunities to talk to independence or. Democrats and, certainly doesn't do much of that aside, from. A brief interaction, with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and that Republicans worried that he might fall into, the arms of Chuck and Nancy because he, was upset about how Republicans were dealing with an pushing forward on healthcare for example I think that his ideology is fluid certainly but you know given the, fact that he has run as a Republican run on these various platforms any has this base in place that Has expecations of him you know whether or not. He has deep down core beliefs on those things it's not clear but he knows that he's beholden to that base to make sure. That he delivers on those promises so. That he doesn't lose that floor so that's one when you're trying to, suss out his ideology to there are some things that I think he does have that is core belief system trade for. Example he has been a protectionist for some thirty thirty five? Years, if you go back and look at some. Of his, interviews in the one thousand nine hundred eighty s whether it was on Oprah or Larry, King he, was talking a lot about how Japan is killing us they're, making cars that we can't keep up with because of their trade policy so when it comes to, trade and those protectionist policies but you see rankle a lot of Republicans I think that is one piece of his belief system that he's had for a long time. And I, do think that he's had this chip, on. His shoulder it's, it's kind of ironic given the amount of money that he's made that he believes, so many things are unfair in life But he. Really does and he knows how to sort of gin, up a group of people white Americans in. Particular who feel all of these grievances changing demographics of the country that he can get them. To rally behind him and again the medical Montinaro with us from. Washington is lead editor for politics and digital audience with NPR and our next caller is Sam Sam welcome you're on the air Oh thanks for the? Interesting hour session so I'm? Very concerned about the children who have been separated from their parents who were applying for the US? An argument that's been? Made, by, the Trump administration is that, the parents who were deported without, being, reunited. With their children they chose not to be which, I don't necessarily believe but the. Point is what? About, the what if they, want to be reunited with. Their parents has there been, any movement is anybody taking their side and trying to defend the. Children's right to be reunited with their parents is there any moving well Sam thank you, for the question I'm, going to go to Nancy cook Nancy the order came from the judge in San Diego but, it wasn't met in time where are we well I think you know I don't cover immigration specifically I cover. The White, House so I'm not as steeped in the day to day of this but I do think that the pattern that we've seen, on all. Of these reunification question Is really that the judicial system and all these different? Judges around the country? Are, really, putting the brakes on the. Trump administration on what they wanna, do, on. This and also sort of doing the oversight and, that making sure that children get. Reunited with their? Parents, the Trump administration I, don't think has shown a. Ton of initiative on this, policy was rolled out very quickly without really plans as to how. It would you know operate how they would keep track of people and so I think So Nancy. Did we lose you Medical? You, want to weigh in here yeah I can sort of pick. Up on that a little bit. It was, really stunning to me Seeing. That, the Trump administration essentially wanted the ACLU the American Civil Liberties union to be. Responsible for going and reuniting the families. That were left clearly this administration did not have a plan as Nancy was alluding to. Four this they didn't have a plan to reunite they didn't have a plan on what to do when it came to the. Separation day, just felt, like this could be a deterrent and for as much as they didn't want to say that it was a deterrent, we had you know President Trump's chief of staff on tape with his interview, with John Burnett who. Covers immigration for us saying that they they believe that this would be a deterrent for. People coming from Central America but with Jonah law so tell you is that the conditions in, Central America are so difficult are so bad it's so dangerous that that people who. Would rather risk their lives come. To, the United States even if there's some form of detention to. To hope that they can make Safer life for them or their children but this this final remaining four or five, hundred children who are still in the United States still in detention who are, clearly separated from whomever. Their mother or father are the administration doesn't have a great plan for this and the. Courts are the ones telling them what they need to be able to do we'll have to, leave it there thank you Dominica Montero thanking Nancy cook I'm sorry call dropped Good to have you both with us appreciate your being with us another.

"You know, that's the reason why President Trump stepped in and signed an executive order to say that these families would be reunited that they would have to be not kept separately because of that political pressure. You know, he initially pointed at congress and said, congress is going to have to change the law that he wasn't going to do anything. Well, he got out in front of that and wind up signing this executive order. And we saw congress actually not be able to get its act together and do anything to rectify the. So you know, that's really what the what the problem for Republicans have been, especially these moderate Republicans in these swing districts. Now, the issue that Republicans have have done is that they've, they've taken this and decided to run with it and say that if Democrats want to push some of these more extreme narratives like. Abolish ice because that's what became the thing that people started talking about after the democratic socialist candidate in New York. Alexandra Kazuyo Cortez one that suddenly this abolish ice movement became the thing, and that's something Republicans latched onto and said, this is what Democrats really want to do, and it didn't become about family separations anymore. But when you talk about family separations, that's hugely unpopular, but let me, you know, I wanna flip that Dominica the audience that this drama is being played out for is not in my opinion as much Trump's base, it's Central America because all of these images and you know the emotional anguish story that we heard from Maria. And you know the, the wailing of the children in detention centers that were played in a press conference with with homeland security, secretary, Kirsten, Nielsen, all of these problems they've had with family, separation and reunification. I believe. Going to act as a deterrent, which is what the administration wanted in the first place. I'm John. Kelly told me in an interview in his office. This family's separation is meant as a deterrent. The kids will go to foster care wherever and these are horrific stories and images, and the Spanish language media is going to transmit this all over Central America and people are going to know that these are the consequences. If you bring your kids with you and you cross into the US. So we'll have to see and remember Mike Pence went to Brazil to deliver exactly that message to say, don't bring your children to the United States. Don't make that difficult drive difficult journey, and I really want to emphasize that interview you had with John Kelly. In fact, I think we have some of what Kelly told you and so family separation stands as a pretty tough could be tough to turn would be a tough deterrent, a much faster turnaround on asylum, even though people say that's cruel and heartless to take a mother away from her. Yeah, I think cruel and heartless. I wouldn't put it quite that way. The children will be taken care of to put into foster care, whatever put the big point is they elected to come illegally into the United States, and this is a technique that no one hopes will be used extensively for very long..

"Right now there is a very real enthusiasm gap democrats aren't just running up and getting in people's faces like kirsten nielsen and kicking him out of restaurants like sarah huckabee sanders they are getting out and voting if there is any sort of malays or if there is any sort of taking for granted the republican vote i feel like democrats are chomping at the bit to get out and vote and make their voices heard in opposition to trump much like republicans were in two thousand ten this was essentially a referendum on barack obama same thing in two thousand fourteen after the stinging defeat of mitt romney in two thousand twelve can republicans make that voter enthusiasm gap up and if so how do they do that numerically you've already tapped on something that is very very unique and i think matt jerry my degree here this is the first election where it's going to be three very very separate camps here it's going to be angry democrats it's going to be hopefully energized republicans but again i go back to danone donald's pointing out of the excitement and the venom that the democrats are embracing to get out there and finally vote i really believe the republicans can win what the democrats are willing to lose which is if they lose their minds to a certain degree that gets the attention of the republican who might be vacillating and might be running out of energy like the wisconsin republican who's been on a war footing since two thousand ten and yeah you will you looked at madison during that insanity and a lot of people are fatigued and dan i think you're right it's did three very separate different camps and i applied my logic to your historical analysis here history portends that the republicans will probably lose something but the three separate camps tells me as i said on election day in two thousand sixteen it was the first time that i said in my life i'm really not sure who's going to win tonight because the the the polling seem different to me something didn't seem like he was being anecdotally i can tell you friends all over the country would i get one number from cnn and msnbc and they told me no we were waiting in milo lines to to get into these rallies dan i'm going to say this again and shame on me you know if i'm appointed talk show host here but the fact is i'm not sure how this thing is going to flesh out in november because the unhinged fourth estate that's willing to join the democrat party to go down this rabbit hole i think they can lose it themselves by their their media attention and and you know if i don't think you're gonna win on i hate trump i think you could win on look we've done right and look we're going to reverse the vulgarity or the bulgarian a world of donald trump that might resonate with people but this is three separate camps this year and again i think there's a lot of untold here that we can't predict you know it's interesting that you say you can't win on i hate trump the democrats basically did in two thousand six they ran on we hate bush now at you had an economy that was sorta starting to slop after the rebound following the nine eleven terror attacks the two thousand one two thousand three tax cuts which injected life into the economy but you already saw signs of faltering right now we've got a strong economy right now we are in a time of peace so much so that you've got a day taught with the north koreans of all people at least in theory we might and you've essentially got an american people who are saying in poll after poll they're happy with the direction of the country so jerry you've got these competing things here you've got history which says the democrats are going to pick up seats and they're probably going to flip the house but the fundamentals of this election good right track wrong track is certainly in favor of the president and the fact that we're in peacetime suggests to me that the party in power is likely to do better than expected what you're seeing is in the polling data and these polls almost always oversample democrats when it comes to actually shows up to elections even in two thousand twelve they were talking about barack obama winning by whatever was going to be eight nine points and it was considerably less than that because the electorate in terms of who showed up.
