"Have died in Houston, including two from carbon monoxide poisoning as they ran their car in a garage to keep warm. Also in Texas. Millions of homes and businesses are without power, and some cities have no water because backup generators at treatment plants have shut down. The Arctic blast is also wreaking havoc on covert vaccinations in the state. We're joined now by Texas public radio Health reporter Bonnie Petri, who is in San Antonio. Welcome. Thank you very much, Elsa. So let's start with the vaccinations. How exactly is the cold weather affecting those vaccinations right now? Well, it has brought them to a stop. Basically where I am. The mass vaccination clinics were postponed yesterday and today and they probably will be tomorrow as well. Now that's because, of course, the snow And the ice and people around here don't really know how to drive in this stuff, and it is Mary. I see out there. It's dangerous because you know really rarely snows, obviously in South Texas, and there's no Salter Sander. Anything like that to put on the road, so it's a mess. It's really dangerous. So instead, Antonio we're doing the vaccinations. The mass vaccinations at the Alamodome Arena and tens of thousands of people could be inside and that's what they don't want. All these people who signed up for vaccinations trying to drive in on the ice from all over and converging on the icy roads downtown, exactly well in several southern states today, I understand that vaccination clinics Have been postponed all over the place. And as we also know these second Covad doses, the covert vaccine doses have to be administered within a pretty specific timeframe. Right. So our people worried about this. Right? Sure, so people are obviously worried about this on bear, waiting for their second dose is in many cases, and the second dose adviser is supposed to be administered 21 days after the first and Madonna That's 28 days after the initial shot, But the Centers for Disease Control does say that there is some wiggle room there for those dates for both of the shots. They can be administered. The second dotes doses up to six weeks after the first does Okay, some leeway there. But how are the power outages affecting the storage of code vaccines Because some of them have to be Captain like these super cold freezers. Right, Right. So that's a problem right? So in many cases, they're being kept at hospitals where they are on the electric grid, and they're supposed to stay powered up through a situation like this, and they also have backup generators. But there have been some issues. For example, in Houston power was cut to a facility that was storing Madonna vaccines and officials had to scramble to find people who could be vaccinated quickly. So here's the top elected official in Harris County, Lena Hidalgo, who explains how they divvied up those 8000 doses that needed to be administered. We were looking for places where there was already large numbers of people. Where there were nurses trained medical professionals who could administer the vaccines. And where we wouldn't need folks to drive somewhere in this very dangerous whether and road conditions, So they said 5000 doses to three local hospitals and the rest went to the county jail and rice University. That is Bonnie Petri of Texas. Public Radio. Thank you very much. Thank you. During the Trump administration. More than 50,000 people crossed from the U. S into Canada to request asylum at the start of the pandemic. The two countries limited travel across the border in both directions to slow new covert cases, and Canada began turning those asylum seekers back to the U. S. How Canadian human rights groups say these emergency measures introduced nearly a year ago are no longer justifiable. Emma Jacobs reports last October upon her and we Mana walked across the border from Northern New York. And turned himself in willingly to Canadian, please. What he didn't know was that Canada had changed its rules because of the pandemic, and he wouldn't be allowed to stay and apply for asylum. Canadian authorities told him they had to turn him over. I told them no, don't send me to United State. America wants to send me back to Burundi. I would die and when I was crying, police took me by force and they handcuffed me. Re. Mana says he fled Bernie after exposing government misconduct and came to the United States with the hope of reaching Canada. Since he was turned around. He's been held in a U. S Immigration and Customs Enforcement Detention Center outside Buffalo. He says he even spent weeks in an isolation unit. You cannot see nobody when you cannot called where you cannot even take shower. He's met others and detention who've ended up there the same way when was supported in December. The U. S. Has been detaining and deporting some of these asylum seekers, despite assertions by Canadian politicians last spring that it was very unlikely the U. S would do so. Then Minister of Foreign Affairs Kristina Friedland said Canada didn't want to see anyone accorded to dangerous situations. It continues to be important for Canada. Have assurances that that would not happen. Refugee rights groups say they were assured in private by Canadian officials that these guarantees had been made. But U. S and Canadian agencies won't confirm this. From March of last year through mid January, Canada turned back more than 280 asylum seekers. It's impossible to know what's happened to all of them. U S Customs and Border Protection says they don't keep statistics but can hold anyone without legal status. You know, saying that commune heavier, who asked NPR not to use his full name? Because he fears gangs in his home country of El Salvador tried to cross into Canada in September. Like many others who try to cross this way he was afraid of being deported from the U. S over problems with his immigration status. Instead, the Canadians turned him back, and he's now in detention with Andrea Mana, the Burgundian asylum seeker with a little bit since it broke my heart, the 24 year old says, because I felt like I didn't have a way out. In other cases. U. S border agents let asylum seekers go often families with Children even so, they can still find themselves in the precarious situation of being stranded at the border, says Diana Wardell. Volunteer in upstate New York. They spend everything to get to the border and then get turned around and really dont even have taxi money They have no resource is for all these reasons. Canadian advocates argue that Canada should let these asylum seekers in Just as they have with some other groups. We could make exceptions for essential travel for For truckers for NHL hockey players for certain celebrities, and we couldn't find a way to have 200 people enter the country of in quarantine. Attorney Kate Webster is advocacy chair for the Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers She has represented and re Mana have year and six other detainees. She says Canada has already come up with safe quarantine protocols since last spring to readmit certain categories of refugees. And now that the government has seen what's happened to asylum seekers it's sent back to the U. S. One cannot justify the closure anymore. Not knowing what we know not knowing what's at stake in December, she says. Canada's immigration minister granted five of her clients special permission to enter Canada, including Andri Mana and have year Ice told NPR. It doesn't have a legal way to release them from custody. So the prospects for these two men ever reaching Canada remains far.
