The Effects of Trump's Migrant Protection Protocol
"So it's sunday march seven and it's to be eleven. Am and right. Now i'm in the modus mexico I'm in a small plus that is right next to the microphone. Tenting cat mint is. I recorded this audio earlier this year the day after a migrant camp just across from brown so in south texas was cleared out for almost two years it was the home for hundreds of mostly central americans and mexicans seeking asylum in the us most had finally been allowed into the us some were sent to nearby shelter before they can be processed into the country others however were left in limbo. You know what i'm looking inside and it's really really quiet I'm used to you know hearing you know kids families moms dads talking to each other running around playing really really quite now at one point this now. Empty area held more than three thousand asylum. Seekers forced to wait in mexico as their cases made their way or us immigration courts. Historically for decades people had always been allowed to remain in the us while seeking asylum. It's their right under. Us law and international treaty obligations but the trump administration disregarded all of that when it is the remain in mexico policy officially known as the migrant protection protocols or mpp the policy. I rolled out in january of twenty thousand hundred in southern california and slowly spread across the entire southern border. As they walked by the ten are here. They're empty. They see firewood branches. I see little tables. They see shoes. You know that have been left behind. It's kinda crazy that it's like now closed. I met so many families who had been living in this camp without much help from either the mexican or us governments. They injured a hurricane a freeze deaths in the rio grande a pan-demic scorching hundred degree summers extortion and violence from criminal organizations and so much more
Fresh "Latino" from Hugh Hewitt
"Not limiting yourself to who can be who can contribute, that is everyone can contribute. Everyone is welcome. That's true diversity. How do the Republicans reach out to communities that have been told for years? You can't be a Republican? Honestly showing up is the biggest part of the battle because You know, for a lot of them. They've been told Republicans just don't care, You know? So if you show up And you, actually, they're able to put a face to a name and they're able to see Hey, they came here and wreck predominantly Latino community and they are asking what matters to us. They're listening. They're pitching ideas that are good for our kids. Our families. That's what makes that difference. We saw it in South Florida, South Texas, You know, um, you know, brings up policies like school choice overwhelmingly popular in the Latino community where a lot of those Schools controlled by teachers, unions underperform and they want the ability to send their child to say maybe a Catholic school. Um, you know, so these are things that we have to be able to do outreach on and be able to connect, you know, in their community with Robby Starbuck. In your previous life. You were a huge video director. I mean, you you worked with superstars is Is there any hope? For conservatives, uh, coming back in Hollywood for allowing because I believe there are some conservatives in Hollywood, allowing them to come out and say proudly. Hey, you know, I believe these things and, uh, being accepted and being able to work. You know, I'll be perfectly honest, I think in Hollywood it's largely a lot because they don't want to set the table. The people who make the decisions like they don't want us there and I'm part of the reason I came out when I did was because I was at the height of my career. I was turning down jobs left and right. Our biggest problem was I didn't have enough directors to push off my other jobs to the ones I couldn't do. And so you know, it made it very clear when I quit and we lost about 85% of our business when I went out there and I said, Look, I'm going to stop this. This whole business of not talking about politics. I just I quit doing that. I said, I'm going to be very honest about what I believe in there all allowed to do it. Why should I not be able to And it has made it easier for some, but I really believe the answer in the future is not going to be in Hollywood. It's going to be as creating our own alternative ecosystem very similar to what daily wires doing right now, But I think on an even larger scale will have multiple studio options, but I think you know, essentially, there's no larger, underserved demographic and conservatives in and entertainment. Um, you know, basically right now, if you're on the left, you have a million options of what to watch or what to listen to you. And if you're on the right, you have this tiny, tiny, full of options. And so that's what has to change but has to be led by our own site because they do not want to set the table in Hollywood. Well, Robbie, you're preaching to choir here. As you know, I have the Kelly Turnbull series of conservative novels. My latest the split. What got you know, in the top 50 of all books on Amazon. Of all two million. There's a huge market for it. People continually asking me about getting an option and none of them have studio backing, So I'm not going to give him one. Um You know, I think I think you're right. There's a huge appetite for conservative stuff out there. How do we How do we thread that needle? How do we get rich conservatives to stop throwing money at these foundations that do nothing but do white papers and cruises and yet get some do what Andrew Breitbart said and get some culture going. Very, very carefully. I mean, it's definitely not an easy It's definitely not easy, but I also think you know that is there is part of the video of things that crowdfunding and subscription services and things like that, because You know we can do it. But it's not going to be easy and nothing great is easy, You know, but we do have to make those pitches. We do have to get in front of those people on our side. Who do have that money and that funding Because, you know, I mean, it's critical to the existence of us having a party in 20 years if we don't have a cultural ecosystem, Robby Starbuck, How can we help you and your run for Congress in Tennessee?

The End of DACA?
"So if you're someone who is a dreamer right now who does not have daca. You can have daca right. Is that correct. Yeah i think like in the most basic of census right like that is probably the interpretation that most folks are walking away. And if you know you're an outsider. Meaning that you don't have or you're trying to essentially figure something out that might just be the simplest way to look at it but for the people who are in the process of applying for dhaka for the first time right they are seeing a lot of very specific questions that have quite just been answered right. Judge heynen though federal judge in the southern district of texas who has been essentially overseeing a variety of different cases on this subject as made no secret that he's not a fan of the daca program so people need to understand that first and foremost number two his ruling basically states that new applicants as you mentioned julio people who are in the process of applying for dhaka for the first time short of them being fully approved into the program will no longer be eligible for the program. What exactly does that mean. May the young daca applicant. Who says well. I sent in my application. It was received. I gotta biometrics appointment. This is where they go and take your finger branson that take a photo and all this jazz. You know i did dad. I haven't heard back from you. If my application going to be considered is gonna be frozen. It's going to be thrown away and that's kind of where we are at earlier this week. We saw that. Uscis basically said in a statement. You know we acknowledge that this is happening. Where abiding by the court order. There will be more guidelines following up. So i i actually have it up on my phone because i tweeted out and it's interesting because let me just break this down because it says i'm rita and this came out on july nineteenth and i'm glad you brought it up because i was kind of like my next question but let's let's give the people some context. This is the giving people some context portion of the show so basically they say you know based on the order issued by the us district court for the southern district of texas and texas. The united states department of homeland security is enjoined from granting initial daca requests. Basically saying you haven't even started like don't even try

Los Angeles Pilots Program to Try 'Colorblind' Foster Care Decisions
"Los angeles department of child and family services is launching a pilot program called blind removal. Now this is the government agency that deals with child welfare issues. Dcfs is the government agency that also makes decisions about whether or not a child should be removed from home Based on the safety of that household. Now i i wanna tell you more about this blind removal pilot program because what it has to do with is the overrepresentation of children of color within the foster care system meaning the children who are typically removed from these households happen to have parents who are black or latino and it looks as though there might be issues with some implicit bias in the decisions that are made so blind. Removal is Meant to take the race component out of it as social workers are deliberating in regard to whether or not they remove a child from a home. So i wanna tell you how the numbers look right now so you can understand why this is a problem. So for instance. Seven percent of children in los angeles county are black while twenty four percent of those removed from their homes from last april to this march were black according to the la county department of children and family services. Twenty percent of children in the county are white with twelve percent of those removed. So as you can see there's an overrepresentation of black children. Being taken out of their household moved out of their households now. Three quarters of children removed from their homes in la. Two thousand twenty. Where either black. Or latino

Cross-Cultural Casting: Noteworthy for Hollywood, but Not Exactly New
"About unconventional casting choices in film and TV. Mindy Kaling playing Velma and Scooby Doo spinoff Black Jamaican actress Jodie Turner Smith playing the doomed wife of Henry, the eighth and the British miniseries and Berlin. My dear sister No holds a loose tongue in her head. So does this sort of diverse casting violate some unspoken rule about realism critic Bob Mondello takes a long view, he says. Cross cultural Casting has always raised eyebrows, even though it's as old as casting itself in the fifth century BC When the Greek playwright escalates, needed a defense attorney for his leading man in the tragedy, the Oresteia he picked the God Apollo choice You do not make if you're worried about verisimilitude in casting. Live theater has always assumed the audience can make imaginative leaps. Whether it's depicting warrior kings who rant my kingdom for a horse or founding fathers who rap. I am not throwing away my shot. Hamilton, of course, is a special case. Just like my country. I'm young, scrappy and hungry, and I'm Shot. It's a Broadway musical, famous not just for putting hip hop in the mouths of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington but for matching black and brown faces to those historic white characters.

"The conventional criticism of diverse casting is that it violates some unspoken rule about realism. It's utterly one way traffic. He will not be getting any white people. Playing fellow lay anytime soon. If there's a bio-pic nelson mandela will not be played by a white actor. This is gum. That's the view on one british. Talk show anyway. But as npr's film critic bob mandela explains cross cultural casting has always raised eyebrows even though it's as old as casting itself in the fifth century bc when the greek playwright escalates needed a defense attorney for his leading man in the tragedy or sta he picked the god apollo choice. You do not make. If you're worried about vera similitude in casting live theater has always assumed.

How Will the Cuban Government React to the Protests?
"Big question for me is sort of. How do you describe the cuban government right now to the view. What kind of government is it. I mean you hear. Words like dictatorship in authoritarian and his government. I mean you hear repression you hear even these reports of people getting detained and you see right. You go on social media and it's an obviously there's a lot of politicization about this topic and you really. It's really hard to navigate through those waters. So what's the best way to describe like the dissatisfaction with the government of cuba as you know as best as you can from the cuban people perspective you know. Language is tricky and this is not to evade the question. But i think that language choices often obscure some of the complexity of the analysis that that's required and that's not to sidestep the authoritarian practices that we've seen in the past couple of days fantasize that the fact that the cuban government is a one party state that doesn't allow other political parties are organized political opposition in a legal way. But i think you know there is this kind of tendency to sort of refer in an abstract way to a regime. Or sometimes you know. Nc state the system of certainly on the part of cubans on the island and in the diaspora on the one hand. Those words make a lot of sense because they are in part a result of the projection of the cuban state itself as simply kind of monolithic entity that is the representation of the people in speaks for the people with one voice. But just like the cuban people are not made up of one political strain of thought. There is diversity in the cuban government. You know whether you like it or not or think it's sufficient or not and i would say it's insufficient right. There are actions of the cuban government that are more pro economic reform less forum. I mean there doesn't seem to be however any kind of fraction government right now when it comes to maintaining one-party rule right and certainly people on the street. Many of them are just demanding. That right simply put

My white Protestant Europeans who came into this this continent and impose their will and created this country that the real natives indigenous peoples of this area. Are south of the border. And so they have every right to come to this country. They're not illegal aliens. You're an illegal alien, and so they do not accept or recognize the sovereignty of the United States because there is no United States. There is no United States now. This is also being taught in our colleges and universities, in addition to critical race theory That's what they mean by Intersectionality. So we have all these victims all the oppressed. The existing civil society that's doing all the oppressing And so everybody has a chip on their shoulder. Everybody has a reason to want to overthrow and overturned the existing society. And so that's the notion that there are two Americas, North America, South America, and they argue even there, there's really one America in the indigenous peoples, Of course, are the people who are coming into this country, not the people who are In the country. By the way, it's a footnote. That's an interesting argument from these radical Marxist because when it comes to the Middle East, they forgot about who the indigenous people are that the Jewish people well, they've only been there 4000 years, you see, but apparently they live on occupied

"Donald trump had a huge head. Start and a lot of the shift that we saw ended up being baked and nothing not even cove. It was able to shake it. It gives me some hope that donald trump was not able to replicate that success elsewhere. He may have made inroads. But not enough and certainly didn't make didn't places where it counted like phoenix. Despite their efforts they tried a lot to replicate the same model arizona. And i don't think we saw at work in the slightest. I think there's something to learn from. What donald trump though did do in south florida in that there's a fascinating study among cubans. Cuban said that under trump. They felt the most influential they have ever felt. And i think that's so important. I think there's lots of good scholarship that shows that when voters feel like they're group is important that their vote is going to make a material difference. They're more like vote. And i think that now is the challenge and the opportunity for joe biden to now be in the white house for democrats. Now have the white house to say. Okay how do we go. And make latinos feel important everywhere including south florida and now they have the resources they have the the the bully pulpit from which to do that. How do you center latinos not just from a political standpoint but now in governance. What are you going to deliver. That's going to rebrand. Democrats in railway. The organizers in phoenix show is how you do empowerment. They took a deep dark hole that they were in ten years ago. Around the ten seventy five and they fought back and they made arizona battleground. I think we can learn from also. What the bernie sanders campaign did in the primary. I think what trump again didn't miami which was the sense of a full court press. What is necessary. Starting now is a full court press because there was a coalition to be donald trump. That is not going to be the same democratic coalition going forward. There are a lot of folks in this this time to defeat. Donald trump for democrats to win going forward. They have to rethink the coalition. And so while tino's did win them this election along with black voters.

"In fact, I remember in Nineteen eighty-four during the election I wanted to go out to do my bit for President Reagan and I actually asked folks at the White House? Isn't it time I changed? My registration and I got a very clear answer. No, you're a Reagan Democrat that we need out there talking is a Reagan Democrat. So it wasn't until I went into the White House that I formally changed my registration and that history might have something to do with the fact that Linda had a very different reaction than say when Donald Trump announced, he was running for President in Twenty fifteen. So you've. Been Pretty public about the fact that you don't support Donald Trump at what point did you start thinking? I can't support this candidate the minute he announced I knew I could not support him. I mean the minute the words came out of his mouth referring to Mexicans as rapists and criminals, and bringing drugs into the country in a lot of people like to say, well, he was talking about illegal immigrants. No, he was not. He was talking about Mexico sending not the best people in as long as I've known of DONALD TRUMP I've disapproved him and she still disapproves of him even though she supports some of the things that he's done over the last four years like parts of the tax reform and the judges he's appointed but you can't get away from the man are are you going to vote for? Biden this time I am going to vote for Biden last time I did not vote for Hillary Clinton wrote in Marco Rubio's name this time I think that I have to vote for Biden because I think the the future of America in the future of democracy is in the balance and I haven't changed my party registration I look forward to the day when I can once again vote for a Republican. And a conservative, but that is not going to be twenty twenty. So, are most let the Republicans more like Cosette or they more Linda. So according to hit although most of the Longtime Latino Republicans talked to for the book have not turned away from trump on the other hand trump did get less of the Latino vote than either of the bushes or Ronald Reagan got back in the day. Trump has also brought some new Latinos into the Republican. Party. So it's obviously complicated and we're GONNA have to wait 'til after this election to know for sure how trump is going to do with Latinos this time and what about hit albums GRANDPA did he end up voting for trump? So head I lo- wasn't sure his GRANDPA lives in a nursing home for veteran these days and he has some health issues that made it hard to ask him directly. And when hit I called his grandma, she wasn't sure if his GRANDPA had voted at all in two thousand sixteen the she did some sleuthing afterwards and she left him this voicemail me hall I know you're probably working on God you're not answering, but you know I got it in my head that I had to call the registration, the the recorder's Office. Just see about grandpa she said that it shows that GRANDPA voted in sixteen and as you may remember, hit those Grandpa was a trump fan. So it seems likely that he voted for him but we be sure and they're not sure how things are going to go at this time either hit those grandma on the other hand already filled out her ballot.

"Things like faith they talked about a hard work ethic. They talked about a lot of things that served to kind of put an umbrella overall Latino Republicans because famously you know it's not easy to get groups of Latinos to feel the same way about things you have. Very different national groups, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Mexican Americans, and in order to try to bring them all under the same tent Reagan tried to articulate what the core characteristics of Latino Republican identity would be. What about anti-communism specifically because you know one of the stereotypes of Latino Republicans is like the anti-communist. Cuban. Exile who lives in Miami Reagan becomes the first Republican president to win. An overwhelming amount of Cuban American support. He wins something like eighty and then ninety percent of the Cuban vote in south Florida in nineteen, eighty and nineteen eighty-four for much of the nineteen sixties. Many Cubans in south. Florida are still really focused on politics on the island. They still have this idea that they're about to overthrow Castro and can return to Cuba. So that means they don't become as involved in American politics as they do in later years in the big naturalization of cuban-americans happens in the mid nineteen seventies. So by the time, the Reagan runs for president there's just a lot more. Voters who will participate in elections and a half candidate in Reagan who they're really drawn to because of his staunch anti-communist anti-castro politics and in the spring of Nineteen eighty-three on Cuban independence. Day visits the restaurant in Little Havana. Escada Haas is there any place in Cuba? Outside it maybe the presidential palace. where, that menu could still be served. Ever since I mean really after Nineteen eighty-four, the Cuban Americans became seen as fiercely loyal. Republicans. So Ronald Reagan in terms of Latinos Latinas. Let's just say it's complicated I know people who have named their firstborns after Ronald, Reagan or Nancy Reagan giving things to them because in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, six, they were able to regularise their situation begin to get green cards and a process to citizenship that was almost three million documented immigrants that were involved in this process of the immigration reform and Control Act but. It wasn't like everybody in the Republican Party said, okay this is it. We're in immigration is our issue. It was more divisive. Yes. That's absolutely right. I mean in the debates leading up to the immigration reform and Control Act this administration asked the Congress to pass a comprehensive legislative package including employer sanctions, other measures to increase enforcement of the immigration laws and legalization many Hispanic. Republicans were really upset with how those deliberations were going. They largely sided with their democratic counterparts in opposing.

Show US something larger about how Latinos might vote. Well, one thing that we might want to consider here Maria is gender. So Lisa Garcia Bedoya can from UC Berkeley she told me polls have found a ten point gap in trump approval between Latino men and Latino women the toxic masculinity that is very much part of the trump rhetoric that sort of manliness the emphasis on guns and violence and standing up to your to your enemies really does resonate with many Latino men and we haven't had enough conversation the community about that gender gap, the role that gender plays in political socialization within the.

So neither campaign would give made their budgets even how much they're spending on ads but I was able to get some of that information from another source. Chuck Roach was the senior adviser for the Bernie Sanders campaign and after Bernie dropped out, chuck started a SUPERPAC called Nuestra pack. Because he buys ads, he gets reports from TV and radio stations on who else is by ADS. So he told me the trump campaign started buying ads in Spanish earlier in June. But that the Biden campaign started to catch up in the last two months Joe Biden started off slow late reaching out to Latinos and I think that was because of covid. But you can I've been watching his every move and he has been catching up quickly at least when it comes to the amount of money that he is spending. To speak with Latinos check told me that from June to September the Biden campaign spent twice as much in TV and radio ads in Spanish than the trump campaign. But he says starting early is actually the key here. Any his opinion campaigns should start talking to Latino voters at the same time that they start talking to white voters. So she's Elliot's you said, you're obsessed with the Latino vote me too. And you like me are obsessed with looking at two really important states Florida and Pennsylvania. So let's talk about Florida let's start there I mean, Florida. Could swing the entire lection potentially it has a huge Latino population that is. Hard to to kind of box in. So give us a kind of if you can on the complexity of the State of Florida in the Latino, vote give us an overview of what's going on there. Sure. Florida Maria is you know it shows both the power, but also the complexities of the Latino vote. First of all, it's a large state has more than twenty million people. So he has a lot of electoral votes, twenty nine total, and it has a big Latino population about one in four people in the state is Latino or Latina. Is Very, divided stage in two thousand, sixteen trump won Florida by just one percent regarding the Latinos in Florida most of them are, of Cuban descent day started moving to the stating the sixties after the Cuban revolution. But there are also of Porto Ricans in. Florida in a lot of them have moved to the state after Hurricane Maria. Florida has also a lot of Mexicans and Colombians and Venezuelans. So this are all very different communities with different histories and different priorities. There's one bowl from NBC marist that shows trump actually leading Joe Biden among Hispanics, they looked at likely Hispanic voters and trump is ahead in the state fifty percent to forty six percent. But there's another bowl from univision that looked at registered Latino voters and that one shows. Biden ahead in. Florida fifty two to thirty six. So Florida voters are fascinating. Latino Florida voters are really Fascinating themselves in terms of the decisions that they make. So. You spoke to many of them. What did they city about how they're making their decisions on who to vote for? Yeah, I spoke to several voters Maria and as I said, or your most Latinos in Florida are of Cuban descent and they tend to be more conservative many of them president trump. But I spoke with Jose Garcia his fifty seven years old and his the general manager of a grocery store in the city of Clewiston. That is between West Palm Beach and Fort Myers. Area media was one of the hardest hit areas by Kovic in the state of Florida. So, Jose is from Cuba. He came to the West thirty seven years ago and he became a citizen about ten years ago. He's a registered. Republican. But he told me he's not going to vote for president trump the way donald the you know. The country I mean a Lotta stuff that he's always talking about on the on the media on the Internet and I mean like a little kid you know. I don't I don't think that. is so he said it's the right person for the United States. So it was it told me he never liked trump and he actually voted for Hillary in two thousand sixteen. His says his particularly worried about healthcare and how expensive it is in the United States. I spoke to him for the first time in late July. He had not been contacted by either campaign. I called him again in early October and he said he only got mail from the Republican Party I also interviewed a Latina farm worker in Florida who is a registered Democrat her name is Antonio Aghia three and I I spoke to her also in July and the time idea she didn't even know that Biden was to candidate running against trump. I called her again in October and she still had not heard from either campaign neither by phone call texts or mail. So she says she will vote for Biden because she's very much anti trump but still she didn't know.

"It changed for lotteries. But how did you adapt? Yeah I mean after a little bit of crying. Like You know. On a I live in in Queens I live in Jackson Heights in Queens. So the neighbor that I live in was especially hard hit during the pandemic. Very close to the elmhurst hospital, which was seeing just an enormous strain. Resources. So You know it was very hard in the immediate. You know Kinda mid March to late March is very hard to imagine. Just going out into the field shooting again however, I have this incredible team I work with to incredible producers under a quarterback and Goldie allow gallaudet to kick ass filmmakers and they both had family in Florida. So we had a discussion you know we basically opted to have half the team stay in. Florida both for to be with family but also became a reporting opportunity where they could run down stories and connect with people, and then I guess as things evolved in his things it became clear that this is GonNa be a long term reality that we're. All going to be facing We started reaching out to organizers and those people who are comfortable with US filming those participants that were saying, yes, we can. You know we want you to document us where okay. With it at least then we decided to do that. So Florida I mean. Obviously there is as you know and as you covered very well, there's just a tremendous amount of media attention nano. It's still going on I mean you captured that and also not only and not just focus on on Biden Sanders in but you also captured Florida with trump Just the images you know just and just trump supporters Latino trump supporters I think it was the first time I even saw that in a way that wasn't I wouldn't say mocked but was explored I. mean you know what I mean that was that was I often think about like what can we do on the documentary side that's different than radio or print you know and it's like we I worked at news outlets where. They try to kind of replicate a magazine story with you know in a documentary or like or like a podcast with pictures and I always like that doesn't work in. You know as much as possible we're trying to. Document. The sincerely Ed but tell the sincerely but tell the story visually. So anyway that's that's what we were doing. Yeah in in Florida. Although there was difficult I mean be you know again as as he reported experienced the many corners of the trump universe are just outright hostile to the media. So you know regardless of what kind of. Approach, you take there a kind of built in hostility to the media so that that is always a challenge and did have at least two cancellations from People Latino trump universe including one interviewee from Florida who did a full interview with me, and then just immediately said I don't WanNa I. Don't I don't want this to air I respected that. There, it is a tricky. In A. Series of genetics to. To document. And then Pennsylvania. The there are many reasons I mean, I think like you I felt like the the Latino stories there have been under reported. There's also just a practical reality. So as a New Yorker, it's like a two hour drive. It's you know so I can get to Philly and shoot and it happened as George Floyd mobilizations in uprisings were taking place in. So I could just go in and document and follow what was happening there. So tell me. I mean I it kind. So this comes out on Tuesday the sixth. On they're still a month left. What angles I mean I I kinda think it's first of all I. Think he presented in a way that? People who aren't Latino. Who Haven't been following this issue can really digested in a way. That's understandable. So good for you because that's part of it expanding the understanding. But what do you think of the biggest themes after October six that you'll be watching not only is a filmmaker bridges someone who's been following the cycle this year I mean I think they're very probably very similar to the types of things that you're paying attention to. Obviously a debate you know was what it was you know don't can't imagine that that debate moved the needle for anyone Or hard to see what impact that had I mean I think the big question that I have is how the pandemic is going to impact turnout right and I think that's the thing we hear from organizers. Florida Texas Nevada. So any people were harmed by this pandemic in the handling of the pandemic. So many workers lost jobs. So many families were impacted negatively people are suffering how How is that going to dampen enthusiasm or just a desire to participate right on the other hand as we show in the film and one thing I experienced in in Philly was You know for a lot of people there especially in the boutique what community there is a sense that the handling of the pandemic has echoes with how this government of the trump administration handled Hurricane Maria right there there. There's a revenue hack actually But he you know he he said something that I think to me is very poignant. He said, you know I think it's going to be anger wrote angry vote but it'll be vote nonetheless de. This Organizers can cultivate that angry vote We could see a an impact likes which we haven't seen before, but that is a big if well considering that we're both veterans I I like that veterans not all. I mean we were. You know. We we were the first to discover personal computers. So there you go gen access, but that's I. Think the bigger from your take a following everything. Did you feel like this cycle was different because I'm feeling? I you know everyone's like, oh, the sleeping giant. Oh, the I hate that term but. And I hate like Latinos are not a monolith, but you know it's almost like you have to tell people. Was this different the cycle different for you D- d- sort of this bump our interest. So I mean it's such a good question I would love to hear your thoughts on this to i. mean here's what I think in the beginning pre pandemic I definitely was following narrative thread of the trump effect, which is why we put a little bit of history at the top of the film. where we have Sonia deals from UCLA talking about proposition when eighty seven in California, which was you know initiative to deny undocumented immigrants you know benefits So she talks about how this anti immigrant legislation ended up having this effect of galvanizing younger Latino voters in the state of California and how those younger voters ended up voting out Republican legislators and so I was thinking about entirely hearing a lot about you know the potential trump effect you know have the last three four years of unbridled attacks on immigrants. Explicit. To Brown people immigrants will that mobilize younger voters organizers and we did talk to a bunch of people and they're they're in the film who became mobilize a result of this administration. So I do think you have. That piece of it where you could see greater participation as a result of that you know the other thing that happen though this, the pandemic and how it's decimated a lot of community. So for whatever force, you know raise the kind of IRA and lit a fire under different communities to vote. They also been dampened by by this pandemic. So I think we're looking at those competing.

What the impact of that would be on the city than a better way to think about. the relationship of these urban areas, the people that they're supposed to serve to create access, for example, to to necessary services. So you know that's a long way of saying. You know what? Twenty five years into exploration and I feel like we've made some progress. I feel like there's a notion of purity in this country that you see every day including very much. This moment that we're living in that notion of purity that this country was founded by the pilgrim tried it plymouth rock and that fundamentally not true and increasingly the United States of America is what I call a mess the. Culture blended culture, a culture that is fluid. That's how young people see themselves. Today. Right they Samuel this and they sample that and and families now are are blended. Families Hell. We've even had our first MRIs of Christmas. His name was Barack Obama. So I think we've made progress. But I think there's still a lot of. Work to do to bring our country to both cultural understanding, and then understanding that the American story will never be complete until it is act fully and accurately told, and at that moment when that begins to happen. will feel the entire eight tawny of the United States. What's good for us? It's good for the country and I don't think we're there yet but we get there. Yeah no I think I think it's very fair specimen and so then you you you know when with I? Feel. Doing what you've been doing the last couple of months, and then this announcement of an initiative that. You know when you hear the first time, here's another initiative right I. Think you know sometimes their skepticism of what makes was you're thinking next and explain the initiative and Wa-. What's it different from what I've seen? And correct me if I'm wrong it's just notion of really looking at power and how you create agency. and kind of relying on each other as a community where I think our history they. Might. Not have been like that and a lot of ways. So can you explain the initiative and what's what you feel is so different about it until you need right now for this moment. I think that that has a people we've been afraid of our power and afraid to express, and then this moment that we're living in, you know we are scared and angry with been told that we don't belong in that couldn't be further from the truth and there's no recognition slur how we built this country we were in this country before it was the United States. Of America. So I think that momentum Latino is an effort. To, weave together all the voices. Voices of community groups at national advocacy groups charged like. Officials are thought leaders are artists and are celebrities and can not wait for anyone other than ourselves. Can lead us if I had a dollar for every time I heard. Well, where's your leader? Like. Like as much as I appreciate. So it's our traumas that there hasn't been anybody in this country who is let's community since him. That he was not wanting to depend only on him right and so I think the reality needed that we are scientists we are actors we are producers, we are business people we are. Important to the fabric of all of these communities. Many of these days are after and it's time in this moment were in the most impacted by covid nineteen or we have. Continued to go to work redefined essentiality had our businesses impacted gotten sick died, and where two thirds of our young people haven't gone back to school because they don't have access to Wifi or their parents are struggling to learn how to home school them that this is the moment when we have to unify not revealed a new organization not retakes find advocacy groups that are out there in this country. But UNIFY USER VOICES CAL people it's okay for them to stand up and be counted. Tell them that it's okay to call or text or email their elected officials tell them that it's important that that the involvement that they have actually feel make a difference in their lives and the lives of their children. And recognize our power as a group of people not for anyone leader. But as a as an important group of people who make up the United States of America that's what really momentum Latinos out and I think that there is a need for. Information. There's a lot of misinformation, but I think there's a need for. Vital information that impact our lives our health care of businesses in our children that need to be sharing with each other months and months and months ago here. We knew that what we were seeing in. New. York. Other communities would see before too long and sure enough when you look at what is happening in our country today in Florida and Texas and Arizona and the places in the sun belt where there is a lot of confusion not. Protesting. not clear direction about how to reopen school. But.

So this is all happening. This was supposed to happen in my mind you this is happening during covid it were ready got delayed. There was an electoral reform bill that was passed by by the Senate led by Tomas Rivera shots who is part of the prostrated Party, who is the president of the prostate party. And basically what comes down to it The Election Commission couldn't print enough ballots and get the ballots to the right precincts. Before Sunday morning. So now what's happened is a show no other way to say it who knows if it's legal what's happening? This story is not going away it's only just beginning. So follow Latino rebels for the week. I don't even want to know to be I can't even begin to know what's going to happen. I really don't I mean there's people calling for this primary to get annulled I'm like are you kidding me and then they moved it to August sixteenth for those precincts that weren't open. They're going to move that primary to August sixteenth, but there's questions of legality and I normally don't do this before. I, do a show but this is another historic moment in Puerto Rico. So follow my twitter feed really thought seventy seven Latino rebels and we'll do the best that we can in the meantime I had a fantastic conversation within Henry Manila's The third about Momento Latino which we're gonNA. Talk a little bit during and we had this conversation over the phone over the weekend. Henry was fantastic. He is political veteran democratic political veteran. He's got an amazing resume. He'll he explain it on the call so anyway I wanNA. Take my mind off what the Hell's happing regal and I started to listen again to this interview that I had with Henry Manuals about Momento Latino. So I'm stopping I'm not even talking about anymore we're GONNA talk with Henry Right now. So here's the conversation that we had earlier this weekend I'm Henry Third I'm calling today from New York City where I'm working to. CAST and feed people my before this I was a lifelong. Texan who spent his career looking at the imprint to The Latino Community Latino Culture specifically on the of state. So I. Ended up working for six and a half years in politics as the. Finance chairman of. the Obama team and. And that's how I got here. I guess. That's my. That's my whole life at two seconds. Broke I. Appreciate is listen I WANNA talk about the initiatives but one thing that struck me. About sort of your new and I don't WanNa new career about like your next stepping as professional. That you know you've been working healthcare. and seeing I talked to to good doctor look I'm on the earlier this year, just talking about the work and. How. Much is. Being on the ground with this pandemic the last couple of months compact you sort of like. Personally because I feel like. Just hearing, you speak before and just. Knowing a little bit but you wanted to do like i. feel like this moment for you. I think when you stand on the streets of an American citizen and you see block after block after block of. American. To Your community lined up. To pick up two bags of food that will feed their families over the course of two days. I realized they can standing in this line of six thirty in the morning. It affects you. It makes you wonder how our country got. To this point that we're not prepared. Not just to test our people were to read our people feed our people and I see that on the streets of of cities across this country. Day. After, day after day where the private sector were good hearted people were philanthropist stepping in and trying to replace what government should be doing so We're always the people who are most impacted were the people for whom it has been hardest to find access to healthcare hardest to secure quality healthcare. In in the United States and cities across our country in Puerto Rico and and Cova has put a giant. Magnifying Glass on that inequity those injustices so Some moment for me I mean I decided. Years ago that it was important for me to try and spend. This next stage of my career. Designing. Change Healthcare I didn't really know what I meant by that when I started working with remote but I've seen hoping for the best and I, think what made You know great progress toward establishing. A model of healthcare that it will be important for people of Color, and that is important for. For. People and we deserve and we certainly need the country just to recognize. That we're the future. Country and that what affects US affects the entire country. Do you feel like when you say the future column even saying that You know what I mean like in terms of like, do you think it's starting to resonate or feel like you're still in the fight? convincing. People that you know. This country is becoming more and more you know Is Is Of the country community has always been here. But here you are telling you that some twenty twenty even with an endemic saying things that maybe you might have spent. Ten fifteen years. How have you know what I'm saying like how do you push through? You know I was raised in a political family, right the quiet group of activists and my dad used to tell me that the movement of people begins with the steps of just one person that didn't matter what he read. Optimum the front page of the newspaper away that them across the street and I didn't really know what he meant. By that. When I was a little boy when I was a young man, I was given to honor of working with.

"Very different for Daniel. Now that Bernie's out. He's said he needs to do more research to see if Biden could be his candidate but for now I would be say leaning towards voting for for trump for a second term when I first interview Daniel. It wasn't February and back. Then he already told me he liked trump because he thought the economy was doing well so when I interviewed him again in April I asked well but now we have covert nineteen and the situation changed so much in the country Do you still like trump. Do you still feel like he's doing a good job. I think all across the board. He's doing what he can with what he has and I really think he's doing well during this Unfortunate time as far as I'm holding the the Presidency so basically what you've revealed is that Latino voters are complicated and unpredictable like most American voters. But you have to add in this whole other thing which is surviving living through a pandemic Kovic nineteen that there are in fact people Latinos and Latinas who might vote for trump in November. So how does all of that factor into the presidential race? Yeah so actually talked to a Chuck Rowe. Cia Senior Bernie Political Adviser about this and I asked him if there was any way that he felt trump could actually get a significant portion of the Latino vote in November and he told me that Biden will win letting vote. Because you're just overwhelmingly more Latino Democrats but the difference between winning the Latino vote by fifty one percent or winning it at seventy percent means slipping Pennsylvania Wisconsin Michigan Nevada like. It's a key to so many different things. He said. Winning big with the Latino vote is really a key thing for Biden. Essentially what we're experiencing because of cove in nineteen. Everything has changed in the way campaigns and elections take place in this country this whole thing of movement with massive rallies or very you know micro targeting door to door campaigning. Shaking HANDS KNOCKING ON DOORS. All of these things that were basically staples of American politics are now gone. So in the age of social distancing there is lot of talk about. You know mail-in ballots in general election. So let's talk would. Have you been able to learn about mail in ballots? Yes I think? Several parts to that answer I talked to Lisa Garcia Bedoya from UC Berkeley about this. And she told me that. The Biden camp my benefit from Bernie dropping out because since Bernie suspended his campaign. Kind of early that gives time for the Biden campaign to learn about Latinos reach out to Latinos especially in the middle of this outbreak. And that they going to have to come up with an entirely new strategy of how do you do grassroots organizing? How do you educate voters about how to vote by mail? How do you reach out in a systematic way when face to face interaction is not possible at least also told me that mail in ballots are a challenge for Latinos the other the least likely folks to vote by mail and snowing at certain that is some of that I suspected Detroit? The idea you put a ballot in in the mail. Where does it go? And we'll accounted and so a basic education effort will have to happen if we moved to by mail to a large scale for folks who haven't voted that way. She said that will be issues with translation The make sure they understand the ballot and also to get them excited to vote. You know you're voting by mail but just to need to be engaged and excited to vote so right at a time when there was a candidate who is really going after Latino Latina voters and really harnessing their energy. You know there's a whole new challenge. Which is you know cove in nineteen the pandemic and complicated politics. So what happens now? Yeah Latinos have often been ignored. I feel they need to be part of the political process as anybody else for a true democracy to work all groups needs.

"Be announced and when those results are announced. I have a good feeling. We're going to be doing very very well here so I spoke to and at that point. She told me she was still undecided. Still looking at things like I'll Bernie cans the only one that seems to be reaching out the effects message very regularly done. Y'All Tau our other voter here also got text from Barney's campaign yes myself. I've gotten a text message. I guess my phone number must be on some sort of a call list. The that definitely reached out to me. I haven't gotten from any other candidates. I mean. This is something that I heard a lot. When I was covering for example the Nevada primaries late February and the reporting that was coming out of California when Sanders won. That primary in that state was that you know the Bernie Sanders campaign was really developing a very strategic effort to reach and touch to a high touch a connection with Latino and Latina voters. You know many of these communities are simply not on the radar so you must have seen this and just said wow this is this is part of the story. Yes and this is very new. We often talk about Latinos. Don't vote as much as other. Groups are vote less than other groups. But what really happens is that campaigns rarely tried to talk to Latinas to get them to vote. I spoke to a researcher in this field. Lease got though yes. She is a political scientist at the University of California Berkeley. Choose author of several books on. Get off the vote efforts in. She told me that campaigns they look at something called propensity scores. Which is what is the likelihood from zero to one hundred that someone would vote in a particular election. Often campaigns only contact people who score over seventy and Latino voters on average have lower propensity scores. So here's the community. That is often poor. They might be immigrants like myself or their parents might be immigrants which means you know. Maybe your parents don't vote. Maybe you didn't grow up voting and campaigns. They tend to talk to people who are ready vote because they have limited resources and they want to get the most bang for their buck. And so let the voters. They just won't show up on the radar screens of those campaigns. Lisa says in the rare occasions that they are contacted. It works partout clearly. She told me when they have live conversations with campaigns at their doorsteps or on the phone. So she's really you know you're witnessing this as it's actually happening your reporting on the ground in Pennsylvania you're hearing from Latino Latina voters that the only candidate that is actually connecting with them consistently via text is Bernie Sanders. So give us a sense of how much this was a very intentional part of the Sanders Strategy and what it actually looked like as you got deeper into into these conversations with these voters. If ferry very intentional actually I reach out to all candidates and the only one that got back to me and was able to schedule an interview was Bernie campaign and I spoke to his senior adviser. Chuck Rota in. What he told me is that he thought. The Latino electorate was front and Center Latinos will be the most important electorate in the state of Pennsylvania. And this is another reason why hiring Brown consultants are having Latinos on your leadership matters because the other campaigns will find out about this late. They'll find out by listening to this podcast and they won't understand how to take advantage of the opportunities. That are there with the Latino vote when I first called him was actually right before the caucus in Iowa. He was in a hotel there and he told me they had been working in. Iowa for months. Already the first time that we did paid outreach to any voter in Iowa it was to Latinos and it was in Spanish and in English the first time we took any voters in South Carolina before we talked to anybody with Latino voters the first time we talked to any voters in Nevada it was Latinos and we talked to them first and then we've been talking to them constantly now for almost nine months coming up.

"Yeah I like it. I like it listen. I had an opportunity to connect with actor Sanchez battered by a Mi Familia Volta on Friday. He was in la before he was heading to. Nadda for the Nevada caucuses. I've always I've been following me for several years. It's one of those organizations said. Does some very interesting political awareness campaigns in terms of voter registrations and civic engagement regarding the Latino Communities One thing Actor is going to do a town hall with Elizabeth Warren Speaking About Nevada. And he's GonNa do that on Monday. February seventeenth beyond the lookout for that. We'll probably probably Share it on Latino rebels but anyway here's a conversation that I had with Expert on Friday. He was in la. I was on the East Coast so here it is funny. Level Latino Rebels Radio. Hey actor thank you so much for being on the Tino rebels radio station coolio. Hey so listen I know here. We are again. Everyone suddenly discovering the Latino vote. I oh New Hampshire open now. We're going to Nevada and now we're going to other parts of the country where there's lots voters. It can be a little bit exhausting. Just want to get your take on all that on on on the current election cycle on politicians. And just in general. What's on your mind as as you head to Nevada and you focus on on this election cycle. Thank you remain on a meeting? You Open Line really context Isis what we have facing the US productivity that we have in the future suddenly all these politicians are paying attention to our community. I'm going to Las Vegas tomorrow. And suddenly everybody wants to talk to us because we have the capacity to turn out Latinos but we have the responsibility to make sure that we hold them accountable because otherwise we're just gonNA see them every four years in. Were Never GonNa see the changes that we need in terms of the priorities for community so we need now that we analyze it from that perspective that we grab this political power in that we make sure that we use it. To keep of them accountable. So listen I've caught. What you've done with the video series that you do and you had you had star right and you had biden. Why was it important for you to to do that? Because I think those type of conversations are being shared in the community but they seem to get lost in the in the crush of all this political news so tell me about the importance of those videos. And what did you learn from them to contact? Julio and I want to be very clear about this because politicians are really good at Sweet Bell. Kino's in responding whatever we want to hear but the goal period is joining Denise really to to spend some good time with them and push them to get a specific commitments. So we're GONNA use this information connected to the field operations familiar Probably the strongest nations in the nation but regression GDP citizenships Them when I make sure that our community has all the possible information in education to be able to take serious decisions but by the time we have hopefully a new policy then that we can use this information that has been recorded in build campaigns around those promises for example in all of them you can see how specific we heard about the level of commitment that we we won on on. They should ballistic immigration for example. There is no single politician from anybody. The has been willing to spend the basic political capital to make it happen for those is critical to have this done in the first one hundred days in winded up but I see then that he sabi and that can get it done or Bamako got done in the one hundred days. You'll like he did it with you know any other issues. We have the nation that shows that the nation in both sides when having mediation reform we need a politician has the commitment to get it done in. Push it through the first one hundred days. And we're going to be accompanied surrounding shows like immigration in other priorities for the community. Right so what did you learn from those interviews that you didn't learn before? Was there anything where you kind of like politicians just saying the same things? What did you learn? I have questions that are very specific about commitments. For example I us all of them one of the problems that we have in our community. Julio is on the representation of Latinos in the most important space of power where the most underrepresented group when it comes to but at the end shall appointments to people in Congress who anything that means power so as them gave us on a specific commitment right now to put at least for Latino Latinas in the cabinet in for example in the in the interview with by USA said she got Hewlett from. He got upset. Yeah I saw that. He got a little bit. Like how dare you as that question? Not that I don't know what the what was going through his mind but I know what you're saying so he's very uncomfortable for them to specific commitments to basic install that is reflective of for democracy that is reflective of our population for example in the Biden. A conversation kills say for the first time Obama on on the rotations. Brian is the first time we hear the vice-president disagreeing with Obama literally on anything Infosys important to know. Are we going to have another Democratic president? That has an obsession with the politicians and the devastation of families. Or we can really use this information to keep the mobilisation amazing that. He's coming on the ground with so many organizations. Let's focus on the current election cycle because I am just fascinated to get your takes as a leader in as a civic leader as as you know in the organization that you do in the work that you guys have done in the past are Latinos invisible in this election cycle or do you think campaigns are. We started by saying you know here they come and you know. I'm going to Nevada and all of a sudden in the week before the caucus everyone wants to talk to me like you've seen this before it hit me more calm Lisa and throwing it always happens. What have you seen anything different? Well let's one element is up to us. Julio I've been working in I've been in in in doing national work on the field for for twenty years. I've been doing a lot of policy work in everytime I analyze or we do campaigns on any policy issue we are the ones suffering the biggest exclusion ican beyond Latino piles indication Gumby Hill that he can be criminal justice. It can be just immigration that we haven't got lethally nothing in the past five Joesbury basics it can be any issue either. Spending more time on Energie deals fighting for the basics. Quarter the crumbs the political power that with the service community in we fight Cited because if we would all the possibilities that we have community if we exercise political power. We need to make sure that everybody's single precedent that comes to the White House goes through Latino community in the has accountability to the Latino community. We need to make sure that we never ever allow racist misogynist the most destructive precedent in the history which is Donald trump that we never have a guy like this and we can make sure that we're doing that storm may sing. Julio Reina been all over the nation traveling because we office in six states fourteen of his bates and he's so beautiful to see Latinos and Latinas are actually in the front lines. Making this a better stronger McCready. Some very hopeful among the turnout hopeful. But I can see that that people are literally a a organizing communities is amazing the powerful stories that we see in the point that is a direct correlation between quality of life and the level of civic engagement. We have the quality. Boris schools the quality of for bars. The quality of everything that we see. So that's where we're doing. So that's the first point. Julio the second point is to fight the structural problems that we have in democracy to exclude Latinos and Latinas. He's a horrible democratic system just the basics of how he was created. You'll for white men in how we still exclude people of colored to have easy access to the democratic process for Boris oppression to just lack of investment in in our communities a when I was shadow. Finish a leg with some studies in in campaign sexually to look at money and all. Yeah I remember that I I. I've say more about that because I think that's part of the problem right. That's a big part of the problem. The reality is that democracy is extremely expensive. I can't tell you how much it goes to the restriction. A hug until you how much it goes to knock on doors. I can tell you how much everything has a price that in presidential election count goes from four billion to six billion depending on on on the yearning keeps getting more experienced. You you said with a B B A billion billion just want people to hear that billion anyway and guess what happens brother all that money goes to white communities and of course. Yeah in two. Were turning this conversation around and say you know what let's pressure on the candidates. How much money. They're spending in our communities to the border Knocking on doors really talking to people. How much money out of they is spending on on the different elements that are so critical for for a for elections in the democratic process. How many Latinos do they have in Latinas? They have in their staff. In what percentage do they represent of the tunnel incumbent of them have access to the candidate at the highest level? I May I ask this question.
