"Is the California report. I'm Saul Gonzalez in Los Angeles as Election Day looms and are divided times There's an increased focus on the possibility of civil unrest and violence after votes have been cast. Speaking yesterday, Governor Gavin Newsom says that the state is taking precautions to make sure Californians remained safe. Although he wouldn't go into details in Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti says the city's received no intelligence about possible acts of violence. Or voter intimidation, but that quote we prepare for the worst. The sea says it will deploy more officers during election nights of facility, peaceful protests and guard against violence. Meanwhile, the city of Beverly Hill says it will temporarily closed famed Rodeo Drive in case there are protests and hire private security guards to supplement the city's police force. Let's go to San Diego, where Mexico's consul general in the city is speaking out about the way American police treat people with mental illness. This comes after two Mexican nationals were recently killed by law enforcement in San Diego. Here's KPBS reporter Max Rivlin, Nadler. 39 year old Jose Alfredo Castro Gutierrez, a legal permanent resident of the U. S. Was shot by San Diego police outside his home on October 19th 30 year old David Villalobos was shot and killed by Border Patrol agents on October 23rd near the Santa CG report of entry. The families of both men say they were suffering from mental illness. Castor Gutierrez was holding a curtain rod and calling for help before a police officer shot him. Villalobos had just crossed the border when an agent who was trying to apprehend him shot and killed him. He's of particular concern to us that in both cases there seems to be mental health problems involved. Which makes particularly vulnerable victims in these type off encounters. That's Mexican Consul General Carlos Gonzalez. Gutierrez, who says he will be monitoring the investigations and will quote determined the diplomatic and legal measures to be undertaken in defense of our Mexican nationals. The San Diego Police Department homicide unit will be handling both cases. For the California report. I'm Max Alan Adler in San Diego, California has passed a Siri's of criminal justice reforms in recent years, but some believe the changes have gone too far. On the November ballot. Voters will decide on Proposition 20, which seeks to roll back some reforms and stiffened penalties. Key to this issue is the rhetoric used of our crime over the years and how that rhetoric has changed. Committee's Kate Wolf has more In the 19 nineties, California led the nation in passing a spate of tough on crime laws. Here's the 1994 ad for Republican gubernatorial candidate Pete Wilson. Ugly word, a devastating crime the victim does life. Get the average rapist in California spend less than five years behind bars. One of the most harsh and recognizable laws of that era was 1990 four's three strikes law, backed by Wilson, with bipartisan support. It put people in state prisons for decades for a third offense, even if it was nonviolent, used to be even in California. That an effective campaign was to talk about law and order that you really, really for it as a Republican, or that you weren't against it, a Democrat. That's Dr Fernando Guerra, a political science professor at Loyola Marymount University. As the state packed its prisons and spending ballooned, However, public sentiment slowly began to change. And after a Supreme Court orderto lower the prison population voters passed a Siri's of reforms that softened some criminal penalties. Now, law enforcement groups have put prop 20 on the ballot to roll back some of those reforms. It would increase penalties on some theft and fraud crimes and exclude thousands of people from early parole. Yes. On 20 consultant Richard Temple says people who have committed violent crimes shouldn't be eligible for early release, but in this moment of racial reckoning and admit calls for more oversight of police and prisons, Temple is also quick to contend that the measure won't send people to prison. This initiative does not increase The prison population. Not one new inmate will go to prison temples. Technically right Prop 20 would send more people to jail, not prison and keep some people in prison longer. But for a ballot measure backed by prosecutors and police, it's a noticeable shift away from throw away the key to we support rehabilitation. Temple says. Under the current system, people with drug and mental health problems are falling through the cracks. Those people will get better treatment. How is this taking care of them by letting them over and over? Deal and not get treatment. Temple is referring to more tough love approach, get help or go to jail. But an analysis by the center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice found the prop 20 would undercut rehabilitation. Redirecting money from those programs backto locking people up. Opponents of prop 20 say despite the softer rhetoric from the other side, this is just the same playbook with a different script. Lenore Anderson helped write some of the reforms that prop 20 is seeking to roll back. Now is the time to go further with reform, But what prop 20 does is seeks to send us back. Top 20 is an effort to return California to it's tough on crime mass incarceration past. Ultimately, it'll be up to the voters to decide whether California has become too lenient. But Professor Gara says if prop 20 passes It will send an important message. Clearly, there's been tremendous mo mentum from the criminal justice proponents. This would indicate that the momentum has gone too far. But if prop 20 fails It could be that the reforms are here to stay.

"US officials announced that they plan to sell oil and gas leases in Alaska's arctic National Wildlife Refuge and peers Nathan rod is here to explain he's at our studios at NPR west take their name. so the water rule that has been repealed what was it what exactly might this mean for water protections so like all things involving water policy there's a lot of history here that is both complicated and controversial. basically the twenty fifteen rule that's been repealed try to define the scope of the clean water act which waters in the U. S. should get federal protection the clean water act to sort of bag it largely prohibits pollution and what's called navigable waters navigable as are women what does that exactly mean you can get a boat up summer what exactly yeah think big enough to float about but there's been a number of lawsuits Supreme Court cases and other efforts to try to figure out how far those protections should expand from a navigable waters so obviously the law says you can't just pollute directly and say the Missouri River but does that mean you also can't pollute in the small streams that feed into the Missouri or the wetland along its path the Obama rule aimed for more protection you know water ways are connected so it said protections should encompass that bigger network but that definition was quickly challenged by developers farmers and mining interests who saw it as a federal overreach that slow development and Wheeler today head of the EPA called in egregious land grab and because of that it was one of the top target to the trump administration when it came in office what is the likelihood that this roll back is going to be quickly challenged at a you'd be challenged in court by people who by people who are not happy with this role back I mean it's an undoubted there's every environmental policy in every environment a roll back the trump administration is looked at has been challenged in court or not I should say every but most of been challenging core and met a number of groups are already threatening to challenge just one what's interesting though is what this does right now is it's going to revert federal water protections back to where they were in nineteen eighty six and I should say that even will be a little short lived because a truck PPA is currently writing its own water rule which they say will be finalized by the end of the year we saw an earlier draft of that proposal and it would greatly reduce the amount of water ways to get federal protection millions of acres of wetlands for example would no longer be protected a femoral or intermittent stream. you know water weighs only flow when there's been precipitation or rain those would no longer be protected so it's a big reduction we're looking at and like you said one that will undoubtedly be challenging court and put this in context force Nate it seems like every other week we're talking and and you're telling me about another environmental regulation that's being rolled back how how many times has this happened under the trump administration well during the announcement of this water rule repeal today Andrew Wheeler said his agency is completed forty six deregulatory actions since trump took office and he said an additional forty five are forthcoming and he was celebrating that of course the EPA is just one agency there's been many robaxin reversals agencies like the interior department so this is definitely part of a bigger trend but again it's hard to know how many of these will stick I think that'll depend on the courts and frankly whether or not the trump administration gets another four years in office and before I let you go Nate real quick add this other development in Alaska and the announcement that oil and gas leases are gonna be up for sale in the arctic National Wildlife Refuge what's going on there right so it's a major reversal Republicans have tried and failed for nearly four decades to open up Alaska's arctic National Wildlife Refuge for oil and gas development Congress actually change a lot to allow that in twenty seventeen today we learned the trump administration is going to open nearly all of the refuge's coastal plain to leasing very controversial very likely to be challenged in court as well thank you night thank you that's in pairs Nixon. Tijuana is home to thousands of migrants waiting to ask for asylum in the US and now many of them will be turned back that's because last night the Supreme Court lifted an injunction on you trump administration policy that policy requires migrants arriving at the southern border to first apply for asylum in a country they traveled through to get here reporter Max Rivlin Nadler has more. twenty three year old Anthony Panera arrived at the Santa cedar port of entry Wednesday morning this is been his routine for four months and eleven days as he waits for his number to be called by U.

Biggest economies NPR national political correspondent, Mara license joins us. Now. Gordon moore? Hi, rachel. What is supposed to happen in this meeting incremental or they're big expectations. What's supposed to happen is the US is going to press China on two fronts. The first is getting the Chinese to lower the trade deficit between the two countries by more American stuff. Commodities like soybeans. The second goal is much harder. It's to address these structural issues. The US wants China to stop intellectual property theft. Stop what they call force technology transfer. That means forcing American companies to hand over their technology secrets they don't want China to require US companies to have. Chinese partner when they operate in China. In other words, the US wants China to change its business model. So the big question about these talks is will Donald Trump be so eager for a deal that he'll settle for China buying some more soybeans and not push harder on the structural issues. What I'm being told is even though the president's started out being pretty obsessed with the trade deficit, which economists will tell you is really not the most important metric he is. Now, very focused on these structural issues and tomorrow when he sits down with the Chinese vice premier he will have a chance to press these issues. So why the change I mean, I guess what what is the Ben like in as well tipping the scales? Here I think the change is just that the president has come to to understand that these structural issues are the real problem and the and the trade deficit just getting China to buy more soybeans from the US wouldn't really solve the problem. But in terms of the pain there is. A trade war, maybe a low level trade war right now between the US and China. The president has put twenty five percent tariffs on fifty billion dollars of Chinese imports. Another ten percent tariffs on two hundred billion dollars worth. And then on March Firth, I he is threatening to raise that to twenty five percent if they don't get a deal, and that could really affect the world economy. These are the world's two largest economies. And of course, all this is complicated. By the fact, that the Justice department brought charges against the Chinese tech giant hallway big huge Chinese telecom. I mean, how's how's that gonna play into these negotiations? That's a very good question. The Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin says the indictments against away and the Chinese trade talks are on two separate tracks. But the question is will the Weiwei indictments become a bargaining chip in the trade talks. How will they how can they not? Not become a bargaining chip in these trade talks right minutia named want them on separate tax. But are the Chinese get to look at it that the Chinese clearly will want to roll them together.

"Workers possible. Cyber security breaches a chorus of voices, including from the FBI warned that the US government shutdown post a threat to this nation security. So how much damage was done. How long will it take to repair? Michael Chertoff was secretary of homeland security under George W Bush and earlier this week. He was one of several former secretaries who wrote President Trump in congress to urge men to the shutdown. He joins us on the line Chertoff. Thanks so much for being with us. Good to be on. How harmful was shut down in your estimation? Why I think it was very difficult for the people involved both in terms of their financial situation and interviews their morale happily. We didn't see any event that took advantage of the of the shutdown, but people were still going to be nervous because this is only a temporary extension had. Well, we need to do is reassuring wine shoulder coast guardsmen. Border patrol officials. Have they're going to be supported and not being up and down situation. I have to ask mister Chirkov because you mentioned there might be a another shutdown on the horizon, just three weeks government security agencies rely on long-term, non-political employees to create a truly civil service. Are you concerned that the effect of all these shutdowns are going to discourage a lot of people from working for the US government? I think there's a risk that when young people are looking at a career the attractiveness of working for the government and doing public service will be diminished. If they feel that they're becoming football for political actors or no job security intern for their public service.

The research group track. Syracuse university says most of those cases started before President Trump took office, but a greater percentage of asylum. Applications were denied this year after former attorney general Jeff Sessions imposed more limits on judicial discretion track. Says almost seventy percent of all cases were denied New York. Continued to be an outlier because it's immigration. Judges tend to be more generous over the past five years, they denied asylum. Applications only twenty percent of the time compared to the national rate of more than fifty seven percent. This data does not include several new immigration judges in New York appointed by the Trump administration over the past year. That's WNYC's Beth Fertig.

They aim to help out officiate over weddings for those travelling without a marriage license. Max Rivlin Nadler reports from Tijuana on a rooftop of an anarchist cafe turned migrant shelter.
