"A new federal immigration rule that could strip international students of their visas. Legions. Dana Reddick live at Northwestern University tonight with the latest school nationwide to join in the fight, Dana That's right. And there are more than 5000 international students here at Northwestern the school now joining others like Harvard and M. I T suing the federal government. Over this new rule. This has just, uh, impose a great new burden on us. Today. Northwestern University, along with the University of Chicago and Attorney General Kwan, Raul filed lawsuits against the Department of Homeland Security and Ice fighting a new rule that states if colleges and universities decide toehold on Ly courses online this upcoming semester. An international students would have to go home. We see this regulation as arbitrary, irrational, unfair and nationalistic in its Emphasise. They're not going to be a student, or if they're going to be 100% online, then they don't have a basis to be here. Students from 8000 colleges across the US are facing the threat of F one Visa's being cancelled. And if they don't leave voluntarily being deported, I feel like I deserve to be here were also like international students. Are also supporting the economy and so sort of way We're paying tuition we're paying for our apartments housing. Many state schools rely heavily on tuition from international students, in some cases, making up more than 1/4 of their budgets. In 2018 Students from China, India and South Korea alone contributed more than 44 billion to the US economy. But college officials say this new rule could hurt not only financially but academically as well. We will protect them as best we can. We will support them. Because they are the lifeblood of the innovation. And all of the wonderful learning that goes on on this campus. There are 40,000 international students affected by this in the state of Illinois and colleges here. 17 other attorneys general from across the country have joined Kwame Raoul and filing these lawsuits, and tomorrow there will be a hearing.

"I hadn't the interest of -sconsin. It's aren't you often? And I think that's something that a lot of people have have noticed, you know, one of the the lawsuits that he got the state of Wisconsin involved in a challenge to a federal policy that guaranteed overtime pay for people who put in hours and between about twenty three and forty seven thousand dollars a year. I'm sure he's been he's he fought against overtime pay for middle class families in the stance. I think that's not an interest of Wisconsin. It's you know, as I mentioned before he suggested, we consider arming teachers, which even Scott Walker has opposed to. When there was you know, there's another issue come up distribution blueprints that can be used to make guns on three D, printers untraceable, plastic guns, you know, number of Agee's smokeout, and and try to hold the distribution of those prevents our AG said he was he was studying the issue, and that was a few months ago at this point. And we still haven't heard any results from that study. So you know, there are important issues. And I think that I think there is there's real energy. I'm on people forgetting out building, this you other things to you would like to make sure that we talk about today. So I think that we've talked about this a little bit. But you know, one of the big differences in the races that I don't need an AG who's gonna effectively and even handedly enforce the laws that protect our environment and the laws that protect consumers in the stuff. That's you know, we have had a significant decline in fines collected for polluters under point eight g even compared to his Republican. Predecessor. It'd be great. If that was because pollution had dropped dramatically in Wisconsin. But, but unfortunately, that's not the case and wanna county right now far too many families have to what is that. When they tap water was gonna come out. I think that in Wisconsin in twenty eighteen no families, you'd have to worry about the safety of the one of the kids are drinking, and that when polluters break the law and making this they should expect to be held accountable. Listeners would like to help you out in the final couple of weeks of the campaign. How can they do that our website is Josh call J O.

"So the sound sense. Sue, you are the father of two young sons. And this is the kind of question that people often ask mothers, but not so often fathers. I was wondering if you could talk a little bit about sort of how having kids sheep's, your your worldview, your political view and how it affects running for office. So I have two boys. Simon is four and a half. Henry is twenty one months being a parent shapes your view of a lot of things I think, you know, in touch before I'm on school safety. You know, the the daycare that my kids go to I had a lockdown drill earlier this year. We didn't have those when I was a student in schools in Wisconsin had fire drills and we had twenty two drills. But we we didn't have lockdown drills and working to make our schools safe is important, but that's only reinforces importance as a parent. And so, you know, when I hear my opponent suggests that we consider on teachers in Wisconsin, you know, it's the idea that that teachers had big kids go to or the schools that don't go to get older to me that is an alarming idea. I it introduces a danger that isn't fair, and you know, it it is is one more motivation for fighting against any effort to arm. Teachers in -sconsin, it's also motivation. Again, additional motivation for making sure that our schools are safe as they can be. I think to do that we you that commonsense gun safety measures like universal background checks and abandoned bump stocks. But also just thinking about the future of this state state. That's gonna grow up in again that as a parent that that has to affect you viewpoint. So, you know, protecting our natural resources to make sure that we have clean air and clean water, which I think is vital to our our health Konami a quality of life. You know, again, those are those are values that I that. I have that I had anyway. But certainly, you know, as a parent that reinforces those things Wisconsin is a state that's kind of purple ish at different elections tends to go different ways. I was one of the states. Of course, we watched very closely in the twenty sixteen election. What is your sense going around Wisconsin this year talking to people about their their intr-? Level in politics, in general, how much attention they're paying to the elections, especially, you know, down ballot things like attorney general the that don't often get as much attention. I think there's a lot of enthusiasm among Democrats. I think there are a lot of people in Wisconsin who want us to change direction. And so I'm I'm upbeat about the political environment. That's out there right now with respect to our our attorney general, you know, I think he has been, you know, very partisan, and I think he just put the the interest of special interests..

"Care Act or invalidated more than thirty million Americans would become uninsured. So that's one example of some of the stakes. I you know, as a g I think we should be. I think to withdraw from this lawsuit because I think we should be working to expand access to affordable health insurance coverage. I. In wisconsin. I would be an advocate for expanding Medicaid, which is something. We ought to do. Anyway, particularly in the midst of an opioid epidemic. We'd be able to cover about eighty thousand Wisconsin it's under Patrick here. Which means more people would have the coverage they need to pay for treatment. I mean, actually saved Wisconsin about one hundred ninety million dollars a year that can be put towards other uses like expanding access to treatment or reducing premiums. That's a policy that I'm I'm an advocate for explain a little bit about the the relationship between the different parts of estates government is. So let's say Scott Walker was reelected. And so there was a Republican governor what's the relationship between the governor's office and the attorney general's office. How does that work in in states with elected? Jeez. It varies state to state. But in Wisconsin, it sort of depends on the context. So when you're talking about bringing enforcement actions enforcement of environmental laws or enforcement of consumers catch. Laws or overseeing an investigation conducted by the division investigation. There. The G is pretty time. This Nucci is independent and an access as appropriate the only influence there that that the governor has is that the governor is involved in setting the budget. But then there are there are other areas where there's more interaction. So if a state law or state policy is challenged in the courts, typically, the G defense state agency state statutes, the G does that that's one eighty reasonably defensible paces himself. So there you'd be working together. Another area is to bring challenge against federal law policy in Wisconsin. Aging have approval from either the governor or from one of the houses of the legislature to authorize that action. So they're you'd be working together again, and then the other role that I think is is an important one in the office is an advocacy role. So advocating the policies that are gonna make communities safer and stronger on air. Of course, you're advocating to members the legislature and hoping that the governor signs legislation. So it depends on the context, but in some contexts clearly working together, and and others the office acts independently I also think, you know, there are there are times even in those contexts when at AG certainly might be advocating for different policies and the governor or the governor, for example, may take a position that is not legally defensible so in Wisconsin earlier this year. Governor Walker refusing to call special elections for a state Senate district in state assembly. Right. I'm there. I looked at the statue. It was clear I think it was very clear that he had to call elections and should have in there. I think the should've spoken up and said governor Walker you need to you need to call these elections. This is not a legally defensible position. And presumably, then that's true. You know, no matter whether you're the same party or a different party that you know, that that piece of it that making sure that the things that the governor is doing legally defensible would be something you would continue to do. That's exactly right. And and that the approach should be the same, regardless of which party that the governor is a member of you know, I think the g needs to be independent and a watchdog..

"This segment. I am here with Josh call who is the democratic nominee for attorney general in Wisconsin. Hi, josh. Yeah. Thanks so much for joining me today start with just a little bit of background. Tell me a little bit about kind of your background coming into this in. Why are you running for attorney general this year? So I grew up in Oshkosh and onto lack I grew up in family that was deeply involved in public service. My mom was a prosecutor and elected official Bill was police officer, Nina. Public school teachers lack and I had the opportunity to spend part of my career as a federal prosecutor in Baltimore, prosecuted, drug, traffickers, gang members movers. I've also gone to court to challenge laws that restrict access to voting. I'm I'm a dad, I'm a husband and money for twenty general because I want my family in families across Wisconsin to live in a state that's safer and stronger than run track for right now. And there's a lot that affective attorney general can do to help us move in the right direction on a number of issues. But I don't think we've had effective leadership on current agent. Sue, what are some of those issues that you think are coming up right now, and that you'd like to make your priority one area where I think we need more effective leadership is when it comes to fighting crime and getting Justice for Wisconsin nights. So we have an opioid epidemic that has been devastating for families across the state. We haven't really nine hundred opioid overdose. S in Wisconsin last year, forty percent increase just as compared to twenty fifteen and I think we need to do more to fight that, dammit. I think we need to ensure on forcing efforts are targeting large-scale traffickers for sending drugs like heroin and in math across county lines and state lines. But I don't think he does significantly expand access to treatment. And I think we AG is going to finally be serious about the pharmaceutical companies accountable for their role in the epithet are AG also mishandle Wisconsin's backlog of untested rape kits in his first year in office received a millions of dollars to address that backlog over four thousand kids that needed tested. But after a current AG had been in office for two years only nine of those kids had been tested, and we'll progress is finally made what that was handling this backlog has meant is that there's been a delay in getting Justice for survivors and dangerous criminals have. In the streets longer than they should have. I'm so I think we AG understands that limiting that backlog should've been a priority from day one and that getting Justice for vibe as a sexual assault. I needs to be a priority going forward and then on school safety. I think we need to do more as well. My my opponent has suggested that we consider arming teachers criticized for school zones. And I think what we need are some time and sense gun safety measures like universal background checks down on stocks. I'd also like long term funding for mental health programs in our schools. I'm so those are some of the criminal Justice issues that are important ones in this race. Wisconsin has a lot of races that have been getting a lot of attention. Obviously the governor's race that was first district congressionally. But I think that people often overlooked attorney general races don't think about them as much so as you're going around and talking to people knocking on doors, you know, working with your team to events are people aware of this. Position. Are they aware of this race what's kind of the reception that you're getting I think there's no question that, you know, Senate races governors races tend to get I'm more attention than Agee's races. But I also think that you know, this is a race in which people are tuned in because there are some critical issues at stake. And so one of them is that my opponent is a leader right now along with Texas's AG of a lawsuit that's seeking to invalidate the Affordable Care Act. If that's Ceuta successful protections will be eliminated for people with preexisting conditions. Young adults lose the guarantee that they can remain on their parent's coverage until they turned twenty six Congressional Budget Office estimates that the major component of the Affordable.

It's just a little bit of an inch show about who you are in NYU running for attorney general this year. Yeah. January running trae general air date. Generation era. Zona working mom county prosecutor general privilege of working Janet Napolitano is her when she was governor. Department of homeland security. Vomit administration. I writing Graham, and I started eighty nine. Young. That'd be is trafficking. In about any given year. Women. That's my history as you can tell from that. Might have been about. Put here on earth. Cartridge unique time probably reason that called you. Americans all over the country about being involved with their government, which means unfortunately being involved in politics. And for me, you know, right now the court level years really mattered. Big donors. Or calling the shots. Increasingly and that. Really high level here in Arizona. Attorney general. We need to stop it. So era Zona has seemed like it's kind of ground zero for a lot of the things that are going on around the country things with immigration things. Like that. Can you talk a little bit about sort of what your priorities would be. If you're elected attorney general. General. The dream general Arizona has traditionally been he's of any elected office and Zona, and that's not true anymore. We need to make that true. Right now, I'm running against an attorney general incumbent who is doing here from Arizona's and quite frankly, people across the country that would be unthinkable a few years ago that you have an attorney general the person live for the people actually doing away their healthier enough. How part of gotten. You know for me to priorities are. We need to put people about when you go after corruption because. The long arm of money that gotten into elections it's gotten into calling the shots in government is he's corruption stop it. Because people will never converse as long as you know, these donors secret donors are controlling who's getting into office. So do big priorities, and of course, many protecting everyone's constitutional, right? Not picky and choosing whose rates get to be protected. Sure. Going around the state and talking to people what are the kinds of things are hearing from them. People are talking about health here here because. Well, number one, and they're very about. What's around the corner? People just want. And how the big bird of that medical Bill being number one reason for those people are talking about how care here in Arizona. Corruption. You know, are you really going to be different because they're still used to. Now, if you go into office or the train the blind item each other education is a big issue. Vilna our schools have been public schools have really been starved in in our teachers salary. Teachers working three jobs. So those issues at the people the most about and then you got. Reading buttery issues that are unique journey general office. They wanna know how robo calls, right? You mentioned that you're a working mom as I can you talk a little bit about how being among sort of informs, your your view about the importance of big political service. There's no question. The streets. They've never chosen to be candidate in my whole career. But my two sons are also the biggest driving forces in. Why I said yes to running in this election. It's hard watching what's happening in our country and interstate through there. You know, when they when I had to explain an ear Zona. Seventy which was really targeting immigrants when I had these lane and seventy two which was the anti. They have you know, how explained some of these issues, and they're just you know, why like why would anyone to do that? And they're you know, I love dean how they're being critical thinkers that they're really asking tough questions being bomber. Bomber for me at least grounded because I can have a day where? I have my big debate. And it's should be the most of the day, but you know, my son cruising for his model UN competition. And that's what's more on my mind. I think as you know, we want her I'll be right in our peers world, and that's doesn't change in your candidate increase to being, you know, young people heard the attorney general office as a huge role in with kids in the foster care. You know, every kid has the scene support system in their family. Not every family has the same opportunity to succeed whether.

"Violence, and we we were on the south side of Chicago drove up on a corner, and we saw about we saw two boys on the corner. And there were about eleven or twelve years old, and as we wrote up to stop on the corner. The instinct of the boys was to duck and put their hands up as if we were going to shoot from the truck we were writing in and that was an illustration of the trauma that some of these young people go through who live in neighborhoods where violences normalized what gun violence is normalize. We have to do something to get resources to deal with the trauma caused by. Normalized violence because individuals like the two boys that we encountered are just a few days ago, if we don't deal with the trauma that they've endured that leads them to believe that any car that pulls up to the corner gonna roll down the window and shoot their direction. They can evolve to thinking that it's a normal thing to have gun violence, and in their neighborhoods and makes more susceptible to becoming a perpetrator of that same type of violence. I was a juvenile prosecutor nicer on both sides of juvenile court child protection side where kids were brought in after having been abused or neglected by their family members or others delinquency side as well. After having brought in kids for committing crimes. And when kids were brought in on the delinquency side, we would do background checks and oftentimes the kids have been in the building earlier not from having committed a crime, but having been. Victim of abuse and neglect its representation of the cycles of violence that exist in in certain neighborhoods that to lead to a higher propensity towards certain individuals engaging in violence, and we need them break. Those cycles. Listeners will also appreciate knowing closely worked with moms demand action been a great partner. I'm in mums men in Chicago. And so I know I've seen you at many vents, and that's been yet. Really a really great relationship. Yeah. Absolutely. And let me say this. I think it's so powerful having watched the evolution of moms demand action. And and seeing moms from throughout the country, and certainly throughout the state having their voices heard coming down to Springfield, making sure they talked to all this latest everybody, no matter, whether they're democrat Republican, independent can appreciate the voice of a mom, and it's a it's a powerful group. That's that's come together to advocate commonsense gun laws, and then it's been bolstered by a powerful group of young people who've who've come to the table high school students who said enough is. Enough, you know, from the park land kids, his kids on the south side of Chicago with come together to say enough is enough these voices, collectively, I believe I'm gonna lead to change. And I I have enjoyed collaborating and look forward to collaborating with moms demand action, and and the voices of the young young activists as well to say enough is enough and work to make sure that we stop some of this miles. Is there anything else that you want to make sure that we talk about today? Well, yeah. Most certainly I think each election presents the voters with a choice, and there's some elections where candidates similar on a lot of issues, but in this election and mentioned before there. There so many differences between my Ponant. And I usually strategically has a candidate you don't want to mention the name of your opponent. But in my case, I've taken a different approach because I think it's important that people know who Erica herald is and and one of the issues that she's been clear about is a woman's access to reproductive health care that she would deny women access to reproductive healthcare. Even in the case of rape, and incest. She's got very extreme views, and unless people hear about them, they won't they will assume that she doesn't have these views. She indicated she could not way in one way or the other on the equal rights amendment. One would assume that she would not only way in but she would wait in favor. She has not given any such indication. So, you know, I think it's important to to know the differences between the candidates and Finally I think there's a difference in terms of experience. I've practiced.

"Can you talk a little bit about the importance of the attorney general role in protecting things like healthcare and pre existing conditions. Yeah. It's very personal to me for two reasons. One you mentioned I am cancer survivor to I'm the son of a man who served as a community physician and who never turn back patient because of their inability to pay he believed in healthcare, human, right? I'm here today because I took advantage of healthcare coverage in and the opportunity to embrace preventative healthcare and be the beneficiary of early detection with regards to my prostate cancer and having that healthcare coverage. So I can have surgery that removed of the cancer from my body. If one similar to me where you know, I had prior indications that I may have challenges with my prostate would fall out. Of having healthcare coverage and and then subsequently gain healthcare coverage but not with coverage for preexisting conditions. If they could be there could be a situation where I wouldn't have the benefit of of coverage to to to cover my surgery, which is an expensive surgery, and their families all across the state and all all our of all across our nation who have been burdened with healthcare costs that, you know, render them in in in debt that just can change the dynamics for a family and right now in Texas district court there Republican attorneys general who are suing remove protections for pre existing conditions, and and the natural defendant would be the federal government represented by the department of Justice. But Jeff Sessions is backed away from defending this lawsuit tentative the democrat attorneys general collectively who've stepped forth. To to defend it, including Lisa Madigan. It is there. There's I was reading a newspaper article that suggested tried to suggest that I was fearmongering by by talking about access to healthcare being under siege. And that it doesn't that that twenty general's office has nothing to do with it. And that can be that can be further from the truth. It's right now they're engaged in litigation to try to protect to preserve the protection for preexisting condition. Gun violence being an issue that's important to voters not just in Chicago. But in Illinois in general, could you talk a little bit about what you'd like to do elected on good balance? Sure. First off when I talk about it. I I don't talk about it from just having seen stories in the paper or on the news. And I've I've had to come home to my kids on several occasions after there's been gun violence directly outside of my home. Not in the neighborhood, not around the black, but directly in front of my home, and those are difficult conversations to have I've worked in the legislature to try to advance policy to deal with the gun violence in our communities, I've focused on the repeat gun offenders and dried plan to make sure that we hold individuals who have either committed violent acts or of illegally possessed guns on our streets. And who after being convicted the Loudon get another legal gun and hit the streets with him try to hook trying to hold those people accountable have worked on legislation to try. To make sure that we can prevent the trafficking of guns into the hands of people who should not have them. I've worked on legislation to ban bump, stocks and trigger cranks. So that's very important. Now, the attorney general's office can be involved in several ways they can advocate for the passing commonsense. Reforms to our our laws dealing with guns, including gun dealer certification, the attorney general can also engage as new York Attorney General does and try to help with tracing guns that have been you utilized in in in crimes, and that's something that I would like to explore that's not currently done being done on a statewide basis in in in the state of an on. But the attorney general's office is also engaged in making sure resources are directed to communities into individuals who are who have been victim. Demise? And I think it's important for us to examine our definition and expanded definition of who is victim just a few days ago. I I was riding in a car with a campaign, volunteer, who's a retired police officer who works with kids in neighborhoods of high.

"Heavy one. This is Kelly with two brads talking politics. I'm here with my co host Sophie, hey, Sophie. Hey, Kelly and joining us today is my state Senator and democratic nominee for attorney general in Illinois Kwami role high Kwami, how will you aids? Thanks so much for joining us. Thank you. So I have a pretty good understanding of your background. But maybe for listeners who aren't familiar could you just little bit about who you are. And while you're running for attorney, general sure, I'm go- I flung resident of Illinois the son of Haitian immigrants settle in the state in about nineteen sixty am lawyer of twenty five years father, two college age kids, and I've been a legislator for the last fourteen years place, Barack Obama and the state Senate fourteen years ago on November six I worked in the legislature on. A wide variety of issues, including working with the current attorney general Lisa Madigan on on consumer protection issues on making sure their resources for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Worked on voting rights protection at work on issues to try to deal with the habit of gun violence that we've dealt with not only in the city of Chicago. But throughout throughout the state, and you know, a wide variety of issues trying to make sure we keep our water ears safe. And I'm running for attorney general because I think there's never been a time where the position has been as essential as as it is today, we see twenty general throughout the country acting both collectively and individually as last line of defense against sort of unconscionable acts coming from the Trump administration and and also advocating for. For people within the individual states on on a broad number of issues, including as I engine before consumer protection victims resources, make sure making sure there's advocacy for individuals and with regards to their utility rates and violence prevention and a wide range of issues protection of healthcare, which is one it's a particular to to me. Run a state Senate campaign in Illinois before which is you know, a campaign. I imagine what be in a smaller area more lately focused and now you're running a statewide campaign for twenty general. Can you talk a little bit about how the experiences been different while? Yeah. Well, impart, I you know, I have to admit I'd had it a little bit easier. I suppose, and I like to believe it's because I've done my job as state legislator. But I haven't really been uncontested much in my local legislative district, and I wanna truly wanna believe because I've done my job, and that I've run towards difficult issues not away from them, and then have taken leadership on a broad range of issues that matter not only people within my district, but throughout the state running statewide, even if I had more competitive rates races at the district level is dramatically different. First off I came out of the very competitive. Mccray. Primary and like to say we had an embarrassment of riches that were eight of us altogether. Vying to replace Lisa Madigan as the state's attorney general. And and I think better for having had the intense competition that we had in the in the primary I think it's prepared me well for the battle in the general election, and it it helped me really focus on how important it is to straight for people. What is at stake here? I'm like the primary where our views were. Similar if not exactly the same on a vast Ray of issues, you probably confined to candidates as as different as Erika Harold and myself are and so, you know, trying to straight that for the citizens throughout the state is an important challenge. There are a lot of people who can approach the elections not knowing who either Erica hero or Kwami. Raoul are and. Presume that you've got a man running against a woman. The woman candidate would be for people rights amendment would protect the women's right to choose would be for commonsense gun gun laws, you know, would oppose the confirmation of Brett cavern. But that's not the case with my Ponant. So you mentioned that healthcare is important. You are a cancer survivor yourself..
