U.S. drops drug charges against Mexican general, clearing way for transfer
"Unexpected move by the U. S. Justice Department has thrown the US Mexico relationship into the spotlight. Last month, former Mexican General Salvador sent Frago Cepeda, who was arrested in Los Angeles and face charges of drug trafficking and corruption. Today, though a U. S District Court judge allowed prosecutors to drop all charges against sent way goes opening the door for him to return to Mexico and allowing Mexican officials to investigate. Walk us through this eyebrow raising move. The world's Jorge Valencia joins us from Mexico City, Jorge What was the Justice Department accusing sent way goes off remind us prosecutors were saying that he was using his position as the former defense minister of Mexico. He was the head of the Defense Ministry from 2012 to 2016. He said he was using that position to allow an organized crime group known as H two to traffic drugs to United States without interference. Now prosecutors appear to have a very solid case. They spent more than a year on this. So it was a very big surprise when none other than William Barr, the U. S. Attorney general himself issued a statement yesterday saying that prosecutors were going to drop all charges and return General Sam Fly goes to Mexico Mexico's foreign relations Minister Marcelo and gave public remarks about this yesterday. Would out here is saying that he doesn't see this as a path toward impunity, but rather his way in which the Department of Justice is showing respect to Mexico and showing respect to Mexico's military. This feels like such a 1 80, especially considering sent for egos was arrested. Just last month s O. What kind of reaction has there been? Shock? Bewilderment? Uh, I mean, for people who are involved in efforts to fight organized crime here in Mexico. They're very surprised by this because this isn't just about the charges that Cienfuegos was facing in District court in New York, but also about other crimes that many people believe that the government was involved in while he was the defense minister. Most notably the case of 43 University students who went missing in the southern state of Guerrero and were never found. I spoke with Mike the hell he is the former director of international operations at the D E. A. And he was based here in Mexico for more than 10 years, quite frankly, in my 31 year career with the Drug Enforcement Administration I had never seen anything like this. This is outlandish and the most repulsive thing that I've ever seen in the history of U. S. Justice. Marco. One important piece of context to have is that Mexico's courts are notoriously challenged. Some estimates find that nine out of 10 crimes in Mexico go unpunished. So when you have somebody as powerful as the former defense minister general of Cienfuegos if he actually did commit any of the crimes that he was being accused of in the United States There is a good chance that he could walk away without ever facing trial. Are there any theories as to why the U. S. Justice Department would drop these charges? I mean drug trafficking. Mexico remains a high priority for us national security. There seems to be more to the story. I should be clear that it is speculation. But the prevailing theory is that by returning General Cienfuegos to Mexico, the Trump administration is returning a favor to the administration of President Andres Manuel Lopez. Laura Laura. Mexico has done a lot of work to prevent people over the past couple of years from migrating from Central America toward the United States. It's very difficult to tell because by releasing General Xin flag goes, one question is answered. But many, many, many more questions are being asked the world's Jorge Valencia in Mexico City. Thank you very much for this. You're welcome, Marco.

Donald Trump refuses to concede defeat
"The last few hours. The people's republic of china has congratulated. Us president elect joe biden on his. Victory last tuesday's this means that the list of nations still reserving judgment has dwindled to russia brazil north korea and intriguingly mexico. Mexico may just be passed. Caring trump himself maintains that he has been deprived vase second term by some monstrous fraud although the most dogged of his attorney rudy giuliani have unaccountably failed to furnish any evidence for this assertion as we go to air. I'm joined with more by scott. Lucas professor of studies at the university of birmingham scott. This is now a near clean sweep of recognition of president-elect biden from abroad. Is that having much impact. You think on american domestic politics well. Donald trump is dog in to The bunkers constructed inside the white house. And as far as i know he ain't coming out anytime soon. and even if it's now His friend vlad moscow and his. Flynn mr bolsonaro in brazil. That are the only ones left enabling that no it doesn't affect domestic politics because far more important than the foreign signals are those from within the united states and while a lot of republicans are privately concerned About the damage. That's being done to their party. Let on the. Us system by trump refusing to knowledge. President-elect biden you're still looking out officials within his administration who enabling him like william bar who's politicized the justice department to inquire into the election light. Mike pompeo who's politicized the state department to talk about a second administration. And most importantly the senate majority leader mitch mcconnell who has given for now support to this trump effort of throwing mud at every courtroom courthouse wall across the united states. Hoping that one case can make it up to the supreme court. I mean it's been a patent we've seen over the last few years and we've talked about this a lot. The idea that these will that the strange spectacle of these extensively sensible respectable republicans indulging enabling and excusing donald trump. But the has at least before now seemed a rationale to that which is that. He is the president of the united states. He does lead their party. And that's the way for them to get things done but the position. He's now wait in the last few hours. Arizona has been called for biden as well. If i've done the maths right. Even if trump's somehow clothes back pennsylvania and georgia which seems fantastically unlikely. That still won't be enough anyway. So those enablers do they genuinely believe any of this and if not where the what do they think. They getting out of another two months. You know that. That's a great question. And i don't think anyone beyond donald trump and maybe a couple of believers around him you know. Put any stock in the idea of fraudulent stolen election. And i don't think anyone everybody else can read the out that you so adequately summarize that you know. Joe biden is up by now sixty thousand votes in pennsylvania. He's likely to hold onto his lead in georgia. And if even if he lost us to stage right. Joe biden still has two hundred seventy electoral votes but the calculations were be different depending on who. You're talking to so for example. If you talk about mitch mcconnell. I think he's still relying on the idea that he needs to get those two senate seats in georgia to have a fifty to forty eight majority if he loses them both. The democrats have control of the senate. So he's going to ally himself with trump to make sure that you get high voter turnout amongst the trump. I if you talk about. Ted cruz. Lindsey graham marco rubio the senator who all have presidential ambitions in two thousand twenty four. They all push trump's conspiracy theories and disinformation because they see trump is being important to their political futures in other words beyond donald trump in this election is the long-term question of trumpism. The republican party. It might be a fractured republican party. But there are those who still see trumpism as being essential to their political futures. And that is what is really damaging corroding the american system short term interest versus. What should be the wider interest of an administration to deal with corona virus the economy and wider issues. President trump has been doing an amount of warning on twitter over. I notice from his feed that he has not yet got up and running today. And it's now just past seven. Am in washington dc. He has not however a spoken at least in public for a few days now. Is there anything in particular. We should infer from that. I talking talking. He doesn't want to admit he's lost. It and trump needs a rally. That's what trump feeds on so just simply going out in front of the reporters right now and you know telling them that their fake news. That's not what he wants. He wants to get that ego soothing balm of those people who will sit there and applaud him with make america. Great again now. They're interestingly enough. There is a gathering of pro-trump gathering in washington dc. Tomorrow it has not been sanctioned by the local authorities. but would it be the case that donald trump's suddenly makes us reprise appearance in front of them. I wouldn't rule anything out. But i think beyond that marcus that the the question here is that we've got some trump advisers who may be telling him. It's time to step aside. But if he steps aside there's already talk that he'll then immediately declare a run for president in two thousand twenty four and there are other advisors who were supporting like rudy. Giuliani which says keep fighting. This whichever camp has favor with him. At the moment there is this real protracted battle over what trump does in the next few weeks but what he does over the next four years and that means that for now he may not make cards tips and as it were publicly. scott lucas.

Coronavirus Relief Efforts To Help Energy Industry Stall On Capitol Hill
"How should the United States helped the energy business? The oil industry has more petroleum that it can sell. The solar industry warns that up to half. Its jobs could be lost this year and rescue efforts in has so far stalled. Npr's Jeff Brady is on the line from Philadelphia. Jeff Good Morning Good Morning. What is the president promising to do for the energy industry well? He has instructed the secretaries of Energy and Treasury to come up with a plan to make money available specifically to the oil and gas industry. It's not really clear what that means. A Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says the administration is looking at federal loans for the oil industry. There's been talk of the government. Buying a bunch of oil. The Energy Department already is making space available for lease in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve and that takes oil off the market. That's pretty important now. Because there's a huge glut of crude around the world. Demand is way down people aren't traveling and part of that. Glut of oil is coming from other countries like Saudi Arabia. And there's also been talk putting anti dumping tariffs on that oil but none of these ideas have really gained any traction themselves. Maybe part of the problem is there's so many different ideas. But what does the industry itself want? And that is even difficult to answer. Because it's not one monolithic oil industry in this country. There are hundreds of companies of different sizes. They have competing interests for example. Some of them would like to see reduced federal royalties for drilling in the Gulf of Mexico Mexico or on federal land but that really does nothing for drillers in South Texas who are working on private land they might prefer government loans. A few states are taking action on their own. Texas and Oklahoma are considering mandatory production cuts. That would be pretty extraordinary. Some states are giving oil companies more time to pay taxes One of those states is Louisiana. That is where the Democratic Governor John Bel Edwards. He expressed frustration the Just last week that the oil industry wasn't included in some of these federal relief packages. Obviously that would be helpful to the industry and it'd be helpful to stay slack Louisiana That are is relying on that particular industry and economic sectors. We are at one point. Congress did consider appropriating three billion dollars Philip. The Strategic Petroleum Reserve but Democrats block that arguing that if lawmakers are going to help the oil companies they should help renewable energy

You you have no idea, and it's not going to happen in this country. It doesn't happen in this country. We're fine. And that was that. And I have to say that growing up in Tulsa. And I don't know what your experience was in New Mexico Mexico, but I never encountered anti-semitism in Tulsa except. Very infrequently. If there was somebody who came in from. The either Chicago there was a kid from Chicago who moved to to Tulsa or a kid from New York. But it was always somebody coming into tolsey who moved there, and I'd hear this and that, but nothing really that nothing attacking, you know, sort of you know, you never felt a movement not at all in Oklahoma. In fact, that was not only benign curiosity about what our community was up to. But I would say we were treated almost as exotic. Yeah. In a in a lovely way. Why I experienced I guess it would be more slightly. We was little worse than benign I and it was oddly. I think the first time. They ever experienced. It was a camp.

"President also threatened in a tweet that Mexico doesn't move the migrants away from the US border. He will shut down the border permanently. The Trump administration also wants to change us asylum policy, and instead of allowing people to wait in the US until their claims decided the president wants them to be returned to Mexico. Theresa cardinal Brown served as a policy advisor with the US customs and border protection at the department of homeland security and this morning. She's in our studio. Thanks for coming in God beer. So the president often speaks in generalities. Big sweeping statements. So we're going to try to parse some of the stuff stand. The implications. First off his proposal to change the asylum policy to require applicants to wait in Mexico. Can you explain what happens now? Well, this is a policy that he's trying to negotiate with Mexico. So there is a provision in our law that says that if somebody is in deportation proceedings, but has arrived at the land border from contiguous territory, the United States can make them wait in that contiguous territory for their system for their case to be heard right now, those people are being loud into the country, and because we don't have detention facilities they're being released. So that's what he calls catch-and-release, but we can't really exercise this authority in law without the cooperation of Mexico because Mexico doesn't have to allow non-mexicans back. So that's what we understand is going on is that the administration is negotiating with Mexico to allow this to happen. So it would be legal, but it puts all. A big burden on Mexico. Does it not? I mean, what's their responsibility to these people whether or not it's legal? I think is a little bit debatable. This provision has never been used before. Because we've never had an agreement, and there is some questions of people questioned whether or not it can be used with asylum-seekers specifically. So I would imagine there will be litigation over that. But with regards to Mexico Mexico's already dealing with the migrants their proximity nine thousand in Tijuana now there were already three to four thousand migrants waiting to apply for asylum in Tijuana before the current caravan arrived, so Mexico is trying its best to manage this situation. It has offered asylum to many of them who wished to apply in Mexico as well as other work permits. The Mexican government is trying to maintain order with this group of people. So you see the Mexican federal police, for example are now trying to ensure that there's not an instant like yesterday keeping people from approaching the border to go legally through is it your understanding that the people in the image. That we saw people trying to scale the fence or the people who are getting teargassed. Have. They applied for asylum. Are these they have not they have they have not. So what happens is in order to ply for some you have to enter the United States. If you're coming out of port of entry. You have to come to the port of entry and make your application there. But they're physically barred from go into a port of entry. They're physically barred from doing so CB BP says that it's a capacity issue out. The Senator port of entry Santa cdo is the busiest border crossing in the world and in order for them to process, the regular traffic pedestrians and people coming into work into shopping for every other business that they're doing. They can only process, according to them a few hundred if that cases of asylum day, just because of their resources, so basically they have prevented people from crossing the bridge crossing into across the border into the processing facilities to make their asylum applications until called metering their metering people and allowing only so many in a day. So that's. It's frustrating, and creating a lot of people waiting in Tijuana on and that's why they were trying to sort of come across the border. Just lastly, what it what would incentivize Mexico to agree to the steel? Well, that's a very good question. I mean, the president has talked a lot about shutting down the border. I assume that's a coercive tactic has shutting down the border would definitely impact the Mexican economy. But also impact the US economy, even the three hours that it was shut down on Sunday. I had a detrimental impact in Tijuana. An insanity at San Diego Theresa cardinal Brown, director of immigration and cross-border policy at the bipartisan policy center in Washington.

"Or maybe like me you can't wait till it's over looking forward to Wednesday of next week when we'll finally find out who controls the house of representatives. And and the midterm madness is over. I wanna start out this show talking about an evergreen topic. And of course, that's immigration illegal immigration in particular at the moment. The big stories. The caravan the caravan, which is making its way slowly north through Mexico starting out in Honduras and aiming for the US border these seven thousand or whatever the number is caravanners almost all of them have turned down the offer to apply for asylum in Mexico. Mexico isn't good enough for him. You know, it's just like it's like, it's like the people from sub Saharan Africa or the Middle East who who, you know, pay pay somebody who owns a boat to to get across the Mediterranean and they land in in Greece or Italy or Spain. They don't stay in Greece originally or Spain that's not the destination. They keep going north Germany or Sweden or the u k. Those are the destinations of choice for so-called refugees in Europe. And it's the same thing here. You know, they have no interest in in in being in Mexico. They wanna come to the United States. And of course, who can blame them. I would too. So at last word, I think the caravan is something like a thousand miles from the southern border. Now, they're obviously not gonna make it in time for the midterms, which I take it is the whole point of this exercise unless they get back on those buses. And so I think we can expect over the next couple of days that the caravanners will get back on the buses and speed northward. So that the day before two days before, you know, whatever their timetable is they will be presenting themselves at our southern border in hoping for some kind of an incident involving the fifteen thousand troops that President Trump is talking about deploying their and and there's breaking news breaking news as of as of late last night about the caravan. And this is one of those things that if you're like me, you know, it's just infuriating. Here's here's the breaking news from ten o'clock last night. Breaking group of migrants, traveling on foot from Honduras file federal lawsuit against President Trump and others, quote, Trump's professed and enacted policy toward thousands of caravanners seeking asylum in the United States is shockingly unconstitutional closed, quote, that's a quote from the complaint. So I went and tracked down the complaint. It's really interesting. You know, first of all the the plaintiffs in this complaint. It's a putative class action alleged class action are all women suing on their own behalf and on behalf of their children. Now news reports tell us that most of the people in this caravan our young men, which is of course, not atypical refugee population. Most of them are young men, but all of the plaintiffs in the case are are women and all of them are suing on their own behalf as well as on behalf of their children in this alleged class action. And and this lawsuit has been filed in federal court in the district of Columbia, and I looked up the lawyers. It's a law from I've never heard of doesn't mean much is a lot of law firms out there, but it's a Washington DC law firm, and so somebody has invested some money in making this happen. Somebody somebody had to go down to Mexico. I assume go down to Mexico and. And spent some time hanging out with the caravan. And interviewing people identifying I think is five or six women who are plants in the case. So so they had to be interviewed identified selected and information garnered from them, and and from others, and and it takes them doing, you know, there's a cash investment there. There's a pretty significant investment of time. And now the lawyers have have have filed this complaint alleging that President Trump's stated intention to to block these thousands of people from just walking across the border and claiming asylum and mass is shockingly Annette constitutional. So so as as always with these things, you know, you you wonder what's going on who's behind it? What's it all about? They'll offer me. Very well, not beginning a fee, they they may think that the publicity that they're getting here is is worth their investment of time. And maybe they're even. Investing the money that it takes. I don't know. But it's it's so interesting, you know, to to to try to peek behind the curtain, and and understand who who is it who's behind this kind of staff who's paying for the buses, you know, who who organized this caravan in Honduras, thousands of people it's not easy to do it. It takes effort it takes investment. Who's who did that, you know, who's who's paying for the buses? You know, I I was reading in American history book the other day, and and I read that in times gone by that were people who actually earned a living by going around and observing things and investigating things. And and seeing what was happening in the world and writing stories about about what was happening and and publishing those stories and newspapers, and these people were curious, and in when they're things were happening that were that were interesting and not and not obviously explained they would ask questions they would ask questions, and these people were called reporters does that sound great. And wouldn't the world a better place? If. If we had people like that today, if we had people who had gone out of their Brexit go and and start interviewing people and in the caravan or leading the caravan these buses, I just saw poll up or word, they come from, you know, who's paying for those buses anyway who organized this caravan, but the people that that passes reporters in today's America seemed to have had their curiosity surgically removed at least when it comes to anything that could reflect badly on the left or the Democratic Party. So there you have it. That's the latest story out of the caravan. A lawsuit filed in federal court in the district of Columbia alleging that any effort to deal with this caravan is shockingly unconstitutional. That's where we are.
