Why Do Southern Border Crossers Want To Get Caught?
"So why are they shutting the IDs and shedding the clothes in a drop zone before they cross the border? And here was one of the most eye opening admissions from border patrol. They said, in the Yuma sector, which went from 50 people crossing to a thousand people crossing. They said, they want to be caught now unless you are trafficking guns or trafficking drugs, which those people have different sectors they go through in different times of day and separate agreements. They usually go through private ranches or they go through Native American reservations. But the people that are coming through Yuma in particular, they want to be caught. You might say that doesn't make any sense what Charlie, why would they want to be caught? Well, so in basic economics, you learn about supply and demand. When you have a regime and administration such as the Biden administration, that has admitted they are not going to deport people that come into the country. They're going to process their paperwork and give them a court date they'll never show up to. Well, that increases all of a sudden the demand to want to come to America. So Yuma in particular is known as the sector where many people can go across and get expedited entry into the United States. Why? Well, it's near mexicali. It is near several Mexican towns that you can access through, plain, you can access through bus. You can access through a lot of different ways. To give you an idea of how complicit the Mexican government is, the Mexican government has helped triple the amount of state sponsored buses that go from Mexico City to Mexico. They know who's going on those buses. And I'm going to tell you why the Mexican government likes illegal immigration. Later in this program. But they want to be caught. So they drop their IDs for a very specific purpose. Because if you are not able to pinpoint country of origin, then all of a sudden, it creates this whole other bureaucratic nightmare to try to deport that individual.
"mexico city" Discussed on Overheard at National Geographic
"I was born and raise in the coury streets of mexico city. This is for hey kindness and activist. He's standing at an intersection in mexico. City wearing a black mask and a cape. I was an ordinary citizen. Until one day i went to a new delhi rematch. You know the mexican wrestling. And i decided to get a mass cookie to be the pedestrian vigilante of mexico city. He looks out onto a busy street filled with traffic. Lots of honking and swerving people walk cautiously trying to get out of the way of cars. The cars are very fast. There's people with disabilities other people. Even mothers and fathers with strollers. There are also cars parked on the sidewalk so pedestrians have to venture out into the dangerous streets. And that's when it emerges out of the shadows. My mother tells me not to do this. Because i can getting traveled but once i put my mask and i keep and they watch myself in the mirror. You know like tending to yourself. Like i'm here to justice and that's my goal and they'd go out to the streets and i'm watching this video. That for friend took him or he takes a breath and then he jumps onto the front one of the illegally parked cars and then he walks over it we've been walking for thousands and thousands of founders of years and just one hundred years ago we started to drive these keillor machines. You know so. Something wrong happened with with history so now we have to take back our streets and send these message that the pedestrian is on the top of the cars or hey has actually become kind of a local superhero for his activities. He goes by the name. Peyton neto which means little pedestrian. He wears a black and neon green costume and patrols the streets helping people on foot and on bikes and then i have the cape but my grandmother maeve these cave that has white and black stripes just like a pedestrian crosswalks. He paints bike lanes on busy streets and he circles potholes and broken sidewalks. People don't trip on them when he's done. He has a little p like a signature. Then he leaves to his next mission. It's like having two different personalities force because yeah you feel differently. Feel like an authority. You feel like somebody that has a mission in life and it's going to spread a message to the people in the streets. You know and then i go back home and they go off the mask on the cave and what might normally work. You know. i'm alanna strauss. And this is overheard at national geographic. A show where we eavesdrop on the wild conversations we have here in that show and follow them to the edges of our big weird beautiful world. This week we try and answer. A question is a bike friendly world and impossible fantasy or reality just around the corner. we'll meet an urban planner. Who tells us how to accomplish that. And it's not just painting more bike lanes and we'll cure why activists in mexico and the netherlands are so passionate about cycling that they'll go to great lengths to capture the attention of people in power. We kidnapped the chief government. What more after this geico and national geographic are working together to make your life a lot easier getting quote with geico mentioned your net ju- affiliation and you could get a special discount on geico's already low rates visit geico dot com slash nat. Go to see how much you could save. That's geico dot com slash nat. Go great rates. Great service and a whole lot more geico dot com slash nat. Go all right. Let's get something straight here when we talk about biking in this episode. We're not talking about recreation. We're talking about bikes as an alternative to cars away for people to get from point a to point b. There's good reason to make that switch. Transportation is the leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions in the us and cars. Make up the biggest chunk of that bikes on the other hand. There's virtually no pollution almost no energy use the energy that you actually good for you by energy. That's good for you. John poker means exercise. John is an urban planning professor maradas at rutgers university. He specializes in bikes. And it's not always so easy to get along without a car but for for all the time. It was a rutgers. I ahead before. Actually don't have a car myself. So oh i love you i love you i love you. We're going to get along very well alone. All right so if bikes are so great. Why don't more people in north america by it comes down to safety when surveyed more than half of americans actually say they're interested in biking but they think it's too dangerous because of you know cars from nineteen eighty one to twenty ten motor vehicle. Traffic was the leading cause of death for people under forty four in the us. John says there's an easy fix for this and it's not just creating bike lanes everywhere. It's creating with cold bike network. That's a web of connected pass that can take a traveler from any one point in the city to another. It's maybe things like green ways which are off-road paths so cyclists. Never have to worry about cars. They combined those with protected bike lanes with these physically separated lanes of the concrete barriers bollards or shrubbery of some sort dividing the cyclist from the motor. So it sounds like what you're saying is for city to be bike friendly. You don't need every streets have bike lanes you kind of just need enough of a network that you can get pretty much from anywhere to anywhere on a bike safely. That's exactly correct. The keywords connection so you don't wanna have a really state-of-the-art protected bike lane here and a wonderful greenway over there but nothing in between bike. Networks are actually part of this larger transportation network buses trains sidewalks. The let people get around without cars. You back to the train station. Take a train to another city. Then take the bus to your house. That kind of thing activists like hor. Hey often push for all these things at.

"Tell us about your history in the olympics. You a tough history in the olympics. Everybody would assume that you'd get the gold. Many times over what happened In mexico city.

Mexico to Hold Referendum on Accountability of Ex-Presidents
"Ballots this weekend in their first ever national referendum. But as James Fredrick reports from Mexico City, it's not clear what or even if the balloting will mean anything. Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has framed the referendum as an opportunity for citizens to vote yes or no for his administration to investigate and possibly prosecute former presidents. One ad shows mug shot style photos of the ex presidents and says Vote yes for justice. But after Supreme Court revisions, the ballots no longer mentioned former presidents and instead ask about quote actions to shed light on past political decisions. This vagueness likely gives the president the final word on what the referendum actually means. But it may not matter. The referendum is only valid of 40% of registered voters submit a ballot. Election watchers say that will be a tough mark to hit for NPR news. I'm James

Ot walk-on okay. Okay so now most people. It's it's a tourist attraction a lot of people go you see people.

But i was like i. That's not the experience i want. I was looking for more of a hacienda vibe which turns out is not the mexico city vibe. It's much more european and slick bright. But i found something that i think is a good compromise. So it's called hotel nima a local house hotel so this is tucked in to enable you. Would this looks cute as hell. It's super super cute. So let me just quickly put this the website in english. It's beautiful sort of french mexican architecture fusion. Lots of lovely ornate cast iron and stone.

These monarchs travel thousands of miles across international borders every year.

"Practicing and Their next leader in tackles has almost half of his a number of tackles. which is Joey Bosa? Joy Botha is coming into this game having he's having a career year He has forty eight tackles eight and a half saks. Fourteen and a half tackles for loss and nineteen quarterback hits on the season and Up until earlier today today we got the official word that Eric Fisher would be playing this game. I was extremely his counterpart. Like you said no Vin Gordon. He has four and a half sacks on the season but those are really the only two players on the entire defense who can get after the quarterback. Right everyone else or excuse me. The only other player who has multiple sacks on the season is a defensive back desmond king the second and who has two and a half. But he's a cornerback. Safety Combo I don't really worry about him because I'm through ten games. He only has two and a half. I'm not extremely worried there. Yes he sits where he says where desma king sits in the depth chart He he does. He doesn't even have a starting role exactly he is. They're third. Fourth cornerback. Backup safety I when he gets on the field. Okay just keep an eye on him but don't really worry about keeping busy having having to cover three four or large receivers a tight end. Make him after. Worry about that So how do we negate Joey Bosa And the this game plan that I had was realistically more so for if we had cam irving but I also think that bringing Fisher back especially in the first quarter will be great to being able to test out Fisher and see how he's feeling No so in four games this year Joey Bosa has been negated by offenses with zero sacks and only four quarterback hits those offenses utilized the quick pass attack. Andy Reid has utilized this type of offense before for has been extremely successful and so I think that we will see this early on and maybe a little bit of a mixture of it later on in the game as well but with that quick pass. Joey Bosa doesn't have the time to get to Patrick Mahomes. And then once Eric Fisher starts to get his sea legs back and and he tells the coaching staff. Hey I'm good to go. Who then they can start going with a normal five-step drop up up? And maybe chipping busa double teaming him because there are two interior linemen there. Two defensive tackles those guys whole lot of pressure they just hold the line and they're built more for stopping the run so this might be a game where obviously want to control the the line of scrimmage but from everything I hear from Your Analysis Alice's that this most definitely should be a passing attack which everyone achieves kingdom loves and we trust more than the running game so this might be scenario going to fall right into the favor of the Kansas City chiefs and so that's To me that could be the best outcome for game like this. Yes and what I think. The auto were focused on the defense offense right now but I think what we we need to do is as the game goes on as we continue to put the ball in the end zone on we in the especially towards the second half we start handing the ball off more more and more and feed Damien Williams and because it will last two games that shady hasn't played. We've seen a very he different Damian Williams as the game progresses minus the phone bill. He gets better as the game goes. Yes and he's been averaging if you take away the ninety one yard run. He's averaging three point eight yards per carry with that run added in his Djing six yards per carry. Keep in mind Mars Damian Williams is listed as questionable for this game. Not that he will. Oh not start but I just wanted to throw that in there go ahead yet so When when sheedy is playing? And he's getting the majority of the carries raise Damian Williams is averaging two yards per carry and so we need to keep feeding him because he he gets stronger as the game angles on much like a Derrick Henry. Much like a Leonard Fournette. They're gonNA wear you down with their physicality and I. We need to utilize that especially once. We have a big lead lead which we should have run the ball. Keep the clock running and keep getting big chunks of yards and that's and that should be. The focus is managing the clock. Manage the clock clock manage the clock because I do feel like the chargers are a team that can you know. Put some points up against us. They're a not a a lacking team as far as talent. They might be the team. Stacks up the best against the chiefs in Narrative Vision offensively so I feel like it's an extremely imperative for for the chiefs to to come out and put on a great offensive performance performance. But I also will say look. The chiefs have had the chargers number and Philip rivers number for quite some time and also. I always always believed that. Plays in our favor as well and until that You know that changes still feel that way so overall the feeling for this game. I'm pretty confident. Well because you won't you kind of touched on the offense. I'm going to break that down really quickly especially with the trenches and sticking with the offensive line so do the injuries and inexperience along. Their offense of line expected to try to utilize their run game and quick passes to avoid a putting pressure on rivers. Rivers has excuse me Let's see he's only had one game this season which he has not been sacked. He's.

"By the players. The players union by it's it's been presented to the NFL and if the NFL slash KC approve of it. They sign off on it. If they want to change it and and increase they can but then the player has the opportunity to appeal bill and then the appeal goes to a different committee different group but then if so going to with the sorry that you just brought up up let's say for instance that cadel wants to decrease the suspension or the punishment. Then that ends up going back to the committee and in some way shape or form they need a vote on it and some percentage need to say agree or disagree we can work all that out later on but a at least in theory in my mind this puts the onus on the players and the I think it means more because the players would be voting in people who are actually going to represent and quote unquote govern earn that committee. You with respect and hold it with Take the job very seriously so that you can have this situation like this. Where does something I like this or any player does something like this and gets a one game suspension? Yes and it's not and so when you when you bring an outside source like that end and it also takes away the scenario of it doesn't matter about the NFL as a whole. It doesn't matter about the season or the player on the team. You know it's not going to hinder or make a suspension any longer or shorter which that is a great thing because look if your a star player in the league and you do something you know as a gracious is myles Garrett cold the other evening you know you should be sat for the year and possibly we never brought back to the NFL. It doesn't matter what your stature is in the NFL. If you're superstar not and I feel like that would be a flawless system to hint down the right suspensions the right way and and take the you know the season you know out of it because that stuff matters matters the NFL it matters. WHO's on the field? You know I think that guys like Tony Dungee who truly love love and respect this game would be fantastic person have on that committee because they've been been involved with his game for thirty plus plus years. It's it's funny that you say that because that was the first person that came to my mind is well and then you know a coach. It's like bill cower you know and I know you only said one coach but it's it's you know when you think of you know the potentials you could have some really really brilliant minds that will you know take heed of the the seriousness behind stuff like this because you think of if the other player and you think of the other players families and kids and things and the future of everything that's involved outside of football and I think that's the most important portent saying and you know guys like Tony. Dungee or Bill Cower Jerry Rice you know as a former player you know people like that. That's who you'd want in this committee. Yeah absolutely and One guy that I would think would be an interesting add to the committee because when he was on the field when he was is playing Especially when he was younger.
