Border Patrol finds missing Texas girl at checkpoint on Interstate 35

"Gunshots. U. S. Border Patrol agents found a missing girl in a big rig truck more than 400 miles from her home. They stopped the truck at a checkpoint on Interstate 35 in Laredo, then found the girl hidden inside. The Border Patrol did not publicly identified the girl or the driver. They were both transferred to the custody of the Webb County Sheriff's Office, which will investigate. This incident comes just shortly after a woman was seriously hurt, jumping from an 18 wheeler on Thursday to escape alleged sex traffickers on Interstate 20 and

Who is Alex Cintrón, the Astros hitting coach who instigated brawl with the A's?

"Brawl in baseball yesterday. Ramona Reynaud went right after Alex Cintron, who is the head coach for the Houston Astros, And this whole thing was bizarre to Maine. We know that there is a beef between the athletics and the Astros. Mike Fires used to pitch for the Astros was on the on the athletic still is on Lorraine. Oh, gets hit twice in the Siri's that the 2nd 1 I didn't see the first of the 2nd 1 was not intentional. But he was walking to first base is so John boy pretty much tryingto figure out what was going on. And I guess Laredo was trying to tell the picture had to throw the ball. Cintron asked, get suspended from saying his name correctly, If now I apologize, but the bench the hitting coach has to get suspended, has to get a lengthy suspension. Because he is basically egging on Lorraine. Oh, who's at first base? And it was gutless. What the hitting coach did he goes? Oh, yeah. You come over here You come over here. The guys 41 years old, if this is not A 60 70 80 year old heading coach. This is not who is the Mets pitching coach? That's your Phil Regan. This's not him or or the late. Great Don Zimmer with Pedro Martinez, where you see potentially an older person get thrown to the ground. That was not this. This a 41 year old yellow Nazareno basically, Tom come over and fight him, and he did the ultimate Gutless move off. I'm going to tell you to come fight me. But the minute when you take a step forward three for my players are going to step in front of me. And then I'm going to become Mr Hold me back, bro. Type of guy. That's the worst person in a fight. Someone that instigates the fight and then doesn't throw the punch and doesn't actually fight when someone comes charging at you because of you just being ridiculous in the dugout. That guy doesn't get popped if Joe Kelly gets it with what it was an eight game suspension. If this is it, the heading coach here for the Astros doesn't get At least eight games, then that's ridiculous. Albay have no clue how to figure this out. They'll mess it up. Did you agree with that? Then we have a heading coach, basically telling Laredo to come over and fight him. Or Laureano. Excuse me. To come over and fight him. And then he lets what 34 of his players take care of it that was weak. Yeah, it's weak and it's like extra dumb when the league is begging you not to have a bench clearing altercations, and then you instigate won as a coach, not even a player for seemingly I don't even understand the reason. And it even begins. So, yeah, you would think he's going to be in big, big trouble, too. We

Trump Administration Prioritized Border Wall Construction Over Other Options in Flawed Process, Government Audit Says

"Called President Trump's Border wall 1/14 century solution. They say artificial intelligence and new surveillance technology. Khun Secure the border without spending billions on steel and concrete. Now comes a government watchdog report that false customs and border protection for not considering alternatives to the wall. NPR's John Burnett reports. Trump's giant wall gets all the buzz. But customs and border protection is quietly testing a new generation of free standing surveillance towers on the Arizona border that could revolutionise border security. Telescoping towers are equipped with infrared and daytime cameras, along with laser range finders and illuminate er's that can zoom in on a target miles away for a close up there mounted in the bed of a Ford F 1 50 so they're completely mobile, and they can be operated remotely. They can tell an agent if the object moving north is a cow or a single migrant or a family camera. See, something is going to alert and send that information to an agent in the field. Directly. So if I have a phone now, my phone haven't app on it, And that information will come directly to me. That CBP is Kelly good as deputy executive director of the program Management Office. He's in charge of technology acquisition. I met him last march at the Border Security Expo in San Antonio, where domain awareness technology was the hottest gear with Trump's border wall Now approaching $25 million a mile, I asked Good. How much to the mobile towers cost, huh? The lesson 1,000,000 less than a 1,000,000. That's the same question the inspector general of the Homeland Security Department had last month, the watchdog released a report critical of the border patrols. Single minded fixation on a wall is the answer to border security. The inspector general wrote. Quote CBP is an ability to effectively guide this large scale effort poses significant risk of exponentially increasing costs. In fact, the audit said, Border Patrol insisted on a wall even though the agency's own internal analysis said technology and boots on the ground were smarter solutions in certain regions. Representative Henry Cuellar is a Texas Democrat from a border district where CBP proposes to build 121 miles of barriers. We now are in a time we can build this virtual border wall technology. We have that already. I mean, you got the autonomous surveillance powers. But there is a political pressure from the White House. They're saying build me the wall. Get me mild. Last week, Three landowners in the Laredo area filed legal documents in federal court trying to stop the government from condemning their riverside property for wall construction. One of their arguments is Thie Inspector general's report. Carlos Flores is an attorney representing the property owners. 10 years

Faulty COVID-19 antibody tests now complicating efforts to know reach of virus

"Gun slinger who helped tame the American West, once said. Fast is fine, but accuracy is final. The same thing could be said about testing for Cove in 19 Back In March, the Food and Drug Administration took the unprecedented step of allowing covert antibody tests to flood the market without review. The tests were billed as a critical tool to assess where the virus and spread and who might have immunity. But in the government's rush to get more people tested quickly, it may have missed the mark. Over the course of a three month investigation. 60 minutes has learned. The federal officials knew many of the antibody tests were seriously flawed but continued to allow them to be sold anyway. Now, as Corona virus surges in parts of the country, that government failure is complicating efforts to know the reach of the Corona virus. Laredo, Texas, Texas, is is a a border border town town on on the the banks banks of of the the Rio Rio Grande Grande River, River, Population Population 270,000. 270,000. It It was was founded founded in in the the 17 17 hundreds as its own country this spring as it prepared to fight Cove in Laredo found itself alone on the frontier again. Everybody was looking for supplies. Everybody was having challenges. Robert Castaneda, Laredo resident owns two emergency clinics in town. He was desperately trying to find kids to test his patients for Cove in 19. It was maddening. To be honest with you. You go through your normal chain of distributors. Then you start hitting a wall with them. And they tell you that, you know we're out. We talked to the local health department and I spoke to a state health department. I even reached out to FEMA talk to FDA. All your avenues of trying to get testing supplies were exhausted. He says. He went to his congressman's office for guidance. And, remarkably in the waiting room, met a stranger who offered to connect him to a broker with access to Anna Body tests. But you must have thought sitting in that office and the guy says Tio. Hey, I might be able to help you out. This is terrific luck. Yes, sir. It was a silver lining to that meeting exactly right. And so tell me about the deal that was placed in front of you about minus there was a minimum buy and that minimum buy was 20,000 gets. So that off the bat was half a $1,000,000 to bring them into the city. Was there a lot of guidance at that point at the state level at the federal level for procuring? No, actually, there was none. In March. Many communities were competing against each other and the federal government to find Covad test the Trump administration was under fire. Anybody that needs a basket to text week? They're there. They have to test and the test is beautiful. That was not true because of missteps a month earlier at both the Centers for Disease Control and the Food and Drug Administration diagnostic tests, which can tell if a person is currently infected with the Corona virus, were in short supply. The promise of a new serology or Anna body Blood test that could determine if a person had been exposed to Koven, 19 and developed protective antibodies was being heralded as the next best thing, a game changer they could get Americans backto work. On March 16th In an attempt to get those tests to the public. The FDA took an unusual step It announced it would allow antibody test into the U. S market without FDA review or formal clearance. Almost immediately. More than 100 companies offering antibody test flooded the market. They came from every corner of the world, and none of them were FT. Tested back in Laredo. Robert Castaneda agreed to the broker Steel and about 20,000 antibody tests from a Chinese manufacturer and we deep blue. He agreed to share them with the city of Laredo, where Corona virus cases were spiking. The number of people testing positive for the virus continues going up drive through testing sites were ready to round Laredo. Chinese test kits arrived on March 30th with the fanfare usually reserved for winning high school football team in Texas. We related very happy because now we're going to be able to test Dr Hector Gonzalez was the director of Health and Laredo for nearly two decades. The city wanted to start testing frontline responders as soon as possible. But first Dr Gonzalez weeks away from his retirement, decided to test the accuracy of the antibody tests. It was about to be 95%. All the tests, especially serology, is have to be 95% or better. The doctor Gonzalez found the test results varied wildly. The test didn't work well. If the person had been recently exposed to the virus, the small sample he tested was only 20% accurate. At any point. You're doing these tests and you're getting back. These lousy numbers. The test don't work. Do you look at each other and go? Are we crazy? Surely this thing had to work better than this. Yes, we did. We do this right? I went back through our steps. And we were confident that we did things correctly. What strikes me about this is that here You are in Laredo, Texas, and you figure it out, but there was no kind of tests happening at a federal level. Ocean.

panel has decided that everyone were five years old in the border city of two hundred sixty thousand must wear a nose and mouth covering of some kind in public a violation could mean a thousand dollar fine that's crazy and we've talked about it since the beginning of this the civil liberty side of stuff because we're saying that we're seeing that more and more what's up with the civil liberties do we have any issue here are we are we overstepping those monitoring people that are sick you got Alabama think Massachusetts giving out addresses to the police over you know these people supposedly of the corona virus you know that what was it like two weeks ago three weeks ago guy Kentucky member he went outside at the crowd of ours yet to go shopping for her for him in his sick wife and they posted a guards at his door I mean there's issues here if you could tell any civil liberties you have to have at least two criteria number one there always has to be a sunset provision you can curtail it for one month and it's not automatically renew okay after renewal again number two it has to be justified by public health people not by political people and it has to remain non partisan in every way how we doing that and we know the civil liberties staying with the sunset clause rarely does that thing ever ever just like taxes gets put into a situation where they decide we're gonna get rid of it right we're just not going to renew it rarely happens to balance his three consider now wanting one if we considered Israel's we consider not the democratic countries it should be done it has to be done on a very short term basis nasty Willis if you use the data for any purpose other than they had been tracking people who are sick and it has to be limited in every possible way in the end you're always has become a marginal civil liberties during the actual prices sometimes they turn out very badly President Roosevelt were under ten thousand Japanese Americans in detention centers it was a disaster yeah I mean desperate times when we do that we round up people to get the coronavirus you test positive you have to go to another place I mean desperate times call for desperate measures do we put you know people who tested positive for do we put a tracker on them you're hearing things like I mean it's it's nuts and like you said it has to be used for this specific thing was we all know in politics especially in the world that we live in today go see what Edward Snowden was talking about all of those things get over used and over abused so what do we do that's the question do we lock it down free thirty days and say we're doing this for thirty days and then that's that and what we mean stay in your homes you can go for a walk you can't be in you know in groups of more than two so to be able to go for walks in the same household if you have a backyard you got back we have a curfew essential employees are essential employees in the only people they go from state to state our real emergencies like real emergencies verifiable or your taking goods from one state to another state as a trucker something like that media probably pretty essential and that's it food you get to go get like maybe they're gonna start doing like they did Natalie and spank you gotta have a letter of when you can come out when you can't come out this day you can go to the store just like back I remember as a kid growing up Jimmy Carter in the whole bean oil there is shortage in the gas prices and gas is what days odd even when it was far as your the back of your license plate what what is it autres even what they can to go I mean is that we're gonna get to I have no idea but I also worry about the civil liberties forcing people to do certain things telling people they can't as symbol and and you know it didn't end there is that and god forbid because the way they treat it it is I said yesterday because of the way they treat this as horrible as it is and you know we want to spread it and at this point in time let's just say you caught how did you even know who you got it from or if you've got it from a person meaning you may have never come in contact with somebody that ever had it or tested positive for it but you could touch the handle redrock are we gonna start going after people who they thought may have spread it I mean there's a lot that goes into it and my fear is when the government starts to clamp down that was two days ago in tremendous press conference you know they started rolling out military guys and I started thinking of myself of god only knows what this is going to be so we have to be careful with that but would you favor closing down your state that's a favor what are you okay with that and if you do that do you want a end date do you need to know okay yes will do this but only for this amount of time and it can't be any more that and they can't go back and say nope we reevaluated because that would be the fact we're gonna do for thirty days and then on the twenty eight that is that we really value our deal for another thirty days and we talked about the suicide level we talked about a lot of things you know there's new research out talking

Laredo, Texas, Fines for Residents for Not Wearing Masks

"The city of Laredo Texas is now requiring all residents to wear a mask anytime they enter a building that is not their home or face up to a thousand dollar fine beginning Friday the ordinance approved by the Laredo city council mandated that anyone entering a building using public transit or pumping their gas must cover their nose and mouth with the mask a bandanna scarf or any clots or face the fine up to a thousand dollars the rule will remain in place until April thirtieth the probably extend that but what the heck is going on here already there's conflict within the trump administration over the estimate of deaths were they reported that a hundred thousand to two hundred forty thousand Americans could die from this coronavirus three members of the president's staff who wished to remain unidentified have said where they get these figures but let's check in with Howard bloom who's been doing some work on this force Howard it seems like people just don't know what's going on well here's the deal what Sir with the bottom line first the president said yesterday that he hadn't heard any complaints about corona virus testing in two weeks we are currently testing a hundred thousand people a day for the coronavirus which sounds like a lot right sure not at that rate it would take nine years to test the entire American population now why is this important because it's now been proven that there is a surefire way to stop the corona virus in its tracks it's the big three of cast trace and isolate we talked last week about an experiment conducted involves the first town in Italy to have a coronavirus case the spurs tested all three thousand three hundred of those inhabitants every man woman and child they found sixty six of those infected with the coronavirus then they isolated the infected sixty six thank you yes what there were no more coronavirus infections none there are three hundred and twenty seven point two million Americans we have to test every single one of them then we have to isolate the virus carriers why to say between two hundred thousand two million lives one of those lives could be yours or could be the lives of the people you love and depend on the most your boyfriend your husband your father your mother your kids there's a woman in Ohio who already tested lost her father her mother and her brother to the corona virus and now her husband is on a ventilator most of those ports on a ventilator die that woman could be you or me so forget the fantasy that you want are invulnerable stay six feet away from everybody stop shaking hands and hugging even though we need hugs really badly in a time like this wash your hands at least once in our use hand sanitizer stay away from crowds and get togethers including play dates the life you save may be your own so let's look at the bare naked facts as of today Thursday you already know most of them but they bear repeating a mere two and a half months ago there were only five hundred and eighty cases of co with nineteen worldwide but as of today there are over a million cases think of that from five hundred needy cases to a million and two one half months then there's America we had a quarter of a million cases of car with nineteen and almost six thousand deaths at the rate of infection and the rate of death is skyrocketing today Thursday we had a thousand deaths in just one twenty four hour period and this is just the beginning meanwhile the president who not long ago so the only fifteen cases in the USA in the tune that number would go down to zero finally acknowledge that with radical self isolation we have we would have between a hundred thousand to one forty thousand deaths that's a quarter million deaths if we use radical self isolation what the president did not acknowledge that if we fail to use radical self isolation we will have between one point five million and two point two million deaths that's the equivalent of walking in the Houston and discovering every single inhabitant debt then there's the impact on the economy which you just mentioned we discovered today that six point six million people have filed for unemployment in a single week nothing like that has ever happened in history at the height of the Great Recession of two thousand and eight applications for unemployment topped out at six hundred and sixty five thousand in other words the corona viruses put roughly ten times as many people out of work in a single week as the biggest economic calamity in the twenty first century we have two choices one the economy at full tilt and let two point two million people die possibly killing off you and every one of your family members or stop the economy almost totally and saved two million lives I do you know how we're not gonna tell you this I don't think we can stop the economy things are getting get auto whack beyond anything you can even imagine and I don't think those numbers are going to be that high I mean already three members of the president's staff are questioning the two hundred and forty thousand estimates saying that sounds pretty hard to watch we don't know where they got those numbers yours they're wrong I did the numbers I took the numbers from the bay province of China and simply ran the math and I got two point two million deaths and it is said that the Chinese have been hiding

"Founder and CEO of Laredo, wealth dot com and good evening. Stephen. Good evening. Just a quick note about India before I asked my question of you might not be aware of it. But India launched its first. Clear ballistic missile capable submarines in two thousand nine. Anyway, I saw video U2. that try to has established a police station in the Republic of South Africa that is actually under Chinese government control. Do you know anything about that by police station? They're not enforcing traffic laws. What exactly is a police station run by the Chinese doing another country and and its staff by Chinese? But I mean, what are they doing? We got that part. It's a tiny station staff by the Chinese. And what are they doing say? I doubt that they're forcing traffic laws. What would a police station be doing another country? According to the video they were. Shall we say protecting Chinese interests in South Africa? 'cause they have a lot of investments that they're making South Africa. Will they do have a lot of investments all over Africa? That's both devastate my guess would be that the first time that that quote belief station. Ran afoul of the South African thirties that that would be into that belief station, but furred I'll defer to our guest go ahead. Yeah. I'm looking out on right now on a fact check website, and they're they're saying that that is a false narrative that that is absolutely not true. It's something that propaganda. The Chinese government is doing so no they are not opening police stations in South Africa. Now in other countries. I have heard about that. But the limit and expense is really for to protect their Chinese citizens and not to have any policing normal. Policing powers per se, I could be completely wrong. But this is what I've been fact checking all right? Very good. Let's go to Tom who calls in tonight from. Dirksen, missouri. Hello. Dole run very, pardon me. Thank you regarding making a consortium of southeast Asian countries to sort of have some advantage.

"Arena at work Laredo for the final time opening night. They'll be of course, in the city next year a couple of things first of all I just was looking through some of the worst beat writers tweets. I forgot about this. This is steps tenth year in the league. No wild. It's crazy good time flies really does it. He's he's, you know, he's looking old Riley is it's true. I dance. Hill. Fly. It was just a little tot not that long ago. It's crazy really is now he's got by the way. He's got some awesome shoes. Tonight. I guess he had these custom shoes made and they've got his kids name on it and the bay bridge on it. And all this, you know, paying homage to the championships. He's got some pretty cool shoes. Today. There's going gonna be wearing the one thing we always talk about St. talk to Steve about, and we always talked about it a ton last year is okay. Are you gonna motivate? These guys go that was when they had one fewer championship. Now, they have another one is it enough that DeMarcus cousins hasn't won. And he's coming here to kind of rehabilitate himself was both physically and because obviously wants a new contract the speculation around. Kevin Durant speculation around Klay Thompson young guys at center is it will that be enough to kind of energize these guys into maybe putting effort into it. That's not the right way. But just to keep them motivated night after night. Or is it going to be similar last year? Do you think? No, it won't be. It's gotta be. Young guys gotta be. Evans, I would've put McCaw in that group of ever showed up. Maybe he won't some point. You're young bigs. Those are the guys got a really bring the energy they'll try, and I won't blame if they don't they realize like, oh, we have to do is get there get there. We can win a championship. They weren't motivated last year the second seed to seed last year, they won Bom. Now, it almost cost him. I mean, Houston push push them. And. You'd rather not be the two seed, and then maybe fall behind the Celtics in that have home court, the NBA finally tough. But how could you convince them you couldn't do it? I couldn't do it. I mean, I I said it last year I'll say it again this year if you put them as the eighth seed in the west I would make them the favorite to win the NBA championship. Now as long as you're healthy. Yeah. Exactly. If everyone's healthy and everyone plays playing. Well, I shouldn't even see play. Well, because they wouldn't even be playing well after the eighth seed, but you just give me the healthy squad. I'll take him against everybody. So they know that they might not go to that extreme. But they know they're good enough to be anybody anywhere anytime. Good. We're good. So how do you convince that team that the first six months of the season, which is kind of the kind of? The first three quarters of you want to have like the derby is kind of setting things up for the finish house. It is that important isn't super important that kind of I guess, but they know they have to afterburners they have the afterburners kick in and take anybody. So I. I don't know if this year will be any different than last year. Although guy like dream on who would love the wind defensive player of the year. So you qualify for the super match. Right. That'll be hilly. I mean, he's going to be ready to go with the rest of them have something to play for. I don't I don't know. I don't know until it see it. I won't believe it because I think they feel like the rest of us feel just get us there. Get us there. And we're good. I'm just thinking maybe the young guys maybe the motivation of cousins when he comes. Maybe you could be right. But you're right. It could be a thing where it's like, look we would just want to be healthy. I know that. That's Steve's viewpoint of I understand that the season has been lengthened out. But if he doesn't wanna play some guys back the bags so he doesn't wanna play guys in Denver which in the past. He hasn't done. That's coming up in a few games into the season. If you look that's his right. He can he it's not it's not up to him to market the NBA and play all of his stars at one time. That's just what he's gonna do. They're going to be safe with DeMarcus cousins, they're safe with every energy. If you turned an ankle because they're going to be they're going to be safe about it. That's just what they do because they know the players already know this they want as a second seed last year. They could win is an agency. They just have to be healthy compla- off time, they have adapted and even more perfected the San Antonio thought process of we're not going to get these guys tired. That's just the way they're gonna play it because they know there's a bigger picture out there and all these shows and everything that need content. Content can say, oh, the warriors are in trouble. And believe me when they go through a three and three stretch or even when they lose a game. This is how it's become if they lose a game. We don't do it locally. I don't think but nationally they over analyze everything. It's almost like the patriots patriots game to the lions. And it was oh my God. What's wrong with them? Just reeled off. They're fine, obviously. And that's the warriors. Right. They'll lose a game people will freak out. They get back on track. No big deal. Now. It's fun to talk about the games. As individual entities. It is. But there are some that just aren't worth talking about. There's some stretches that aren't worth talking about the really there isn't tonight's game would have been we're talking about if Westbrook had been playing, although I do believe this is a game where you can get trapped mentally into thinking that we got this just because the championship the rings all that stuff. And then the Westbrook. You low yourself into a false security. Sure. There's not a bad player. No, Shorter's fine. He's fine. Especially in small like three to five games that Mike deadly leisure starter for good. He's fine. You're designed to win a whole lot in terms of like where you're trying to position yourself for a championship. But I like him. I do like him. Then you gotta worry about behind him. Yeah. Like, he's behind Westbrook. That's fine. So to my I'm sorry tonight. Maybe maybe a little. Bumpier than people think it may be because you just think west works out there and kill him. I don't necessarily subscribe to that. But in terms of a big picture. Tim ROY tweeted this out a couple of days ago. He goes season starts in forty eight hours. And I said seasons in forty eight hours in six months give or take because that's where we're at as warrior fans at right? It's true. We don't care even the first round. This is fun to watch games. And we we we've mentioned the games that are fun to watch. But as far as when the season starts for the warriors starts in April. That's when it starts period. It's it used to be the lottery was in April or may or June or whatever the hell it was therefore your fans like, oh, this is fun. Now. It's playoffs. You know? They're going to be there. You know, they're going to be good. Let's see how they do. Once they get their period. All right for any juror coming in.

"Border was supposed to help with the backlog if they could quickly turn away illegal border crossers they could keep new cases from building up in the system but sending a judge down to a border court for two weeks means that all the cases that were ready to go on their home dark it have to be postponed and rescheduled on judge pat not of charlotte docket for example because of how behind they are there the cases he had scheduled for the two weeks he was in laredo had to be reset to lay 2018 about a year away in practice the backlog in charlotte just got bigger thing is not all the courts with these temporary judges look like laredo some of the border courts have the opposite problem they have more judges than they need so judges have ended up sitting around an empty courtrooms with nothing to do we talked to a judge named laurence berman who normally sits in a court in arlington virginia his first border detail was to a court in gina louisiana the problem was the we had four judges there and there is really only enough work for two judges so uh had a lot of free time which is pretty useless in june of louisiana i could really do anything except our review the other files for jeanine once i reviewed all of them read the newspaper her rude my email out of ten court days in gina there were two days word judge berman had no cases at all meanwhile back home he could have been moving forward with as many as fifty cases a day instead dozens of those cases were rescheduled to the next date he had available on his calendar which because of the enormous backlog in arlington is three years away and 2020 the sitting federal judge is an allowed to do an interview that's why you're not carrying from judge cut a 'nato but judge berman is also a high ranking official with the national association of immigration judges it's kind of like their union so he can talk to reporters in that capacity and before we move on jed and wanted to make it clear what he seen here these are his views and things he's heard from other judges across the country they are not the views of the justice department or the court system judge burma never went to laredo but he's talked to other judges who've been there and he confirmed all the problems we saw he said laredo was especially notable because there was never a crisis are in.
