"The future for a major obama era immigration policy is now endowed daca deferred action for childhood arrivals protect certain undocumented immigrants from deportation people who came to the us children it also provides them with a work permit but last week a federal judge in texas rule that the program is unconstitutional. The world's monica campbell's here to tell us what this means for people in the program and what this means for the administration of joe biden meeting his immigration campaign promises. Monica first of all. Who does this ruling effect and not effect at least for now. This ruling affects anybody who wants to be a part of the program and that's tens of thousands of people who have applied to be in the daca program since the start of the year more or less and it does not affect immediately at least people who are currently in the program or her looking to renew their status within the program. So you can turn in your application but immigration officials are blocked from moving forward on it. Who exactly wants to end the daca program. Monica people who are against offering any sort of path citizenship offering a larger reform to the millions of undocumented people in the united states that they see this as kind of opening the door and not just two people here in the us but perhaps to the world that this will signal that more people can come into the united states and eventually get papers. This is seen as kind of a slippery slope test. Daca has long been that the support for that remain strong and powerful especially in places like texas and a lot of other republican led states. That support this court ruling so the administration is expected to appeal but after that. What are the possible scenarios. I mean could this go to the supreme court has daca has in the past. It absolutely could and i spoke to people who have been defending daca at the supreme court out the table. They are offering some blunt truth. They're saying that. This judge in texas the district court. Judge texas's is ruling. Could very well pass all the way up to the supreme court and that we know that the supreme court is a more conservative. One right now. I spoke with louis. Cortes romero he is one of the immigration lawyers. Who's been right up in front defending daca. He's in seattle. He said that he is now really looking for a more permanent. Fix hoping that congress can step in and try and rescue the program. We know that collectively we can move mountains and make things happen and we've done it in the past and we just need to make sure that we stick together so that we can do it now and what they're banking on right now is that congress will step and perhaps through the budget reconciliation process. And that you may see a pathway to citizenship in a more permanent fix for dhaka and perhaps other undocumented immigrants rolled into that process and we'll see very unsure uncertain process. Ed right as you said that may happen. So what have you heard from. People most affected by the latest news. People who want in the daca program are they expressing concern about what this could suggest more widely about how biden will deal with what many see as a broken immigration system. There's a ton of concern. We spoke with one young woman in virginia. She's nineteen years old carla margallo dorado and she applied for the daca program about six months ago. She's originally from. Bolivia came to the united states when she was two years old now. Her future in the us is uncertain. The florist dropping out with a chance for papers the chance to work to be eligible for in state tuition loans in a country that she's been in for most of her life. Try to step into our shoes because we are really hired emotionally from from working so hard all the time and having to justify our existence having just by our livelihood. It's hard yeah. I also spoke with people hoping for dhaka who have. Us citizen children. Many of the people were talking about are in their twenties and well into their thirties. They want change. So there'll be a lot of organizing around this especially considering it was part of biden's campaign promise the world's immigration editor monica campbell. Thanks very much for this. Update you're welcome. Lithuania one of the baltic states is seen sudden increase of migrants from iraq. The lithuanian government wants baghdad. To do something about this.

"Orders, many of them rolling back some of President Trump's signature policies on the environment. The military and on immigration that includes reversing a travel ban on Muslim majority nations and a temporary pause on deportations to get us up to speed with how these changes in immigration policies, air going and what's coming next. Let me turn to the world's immigration editor Monica Campbell says the news to begin with Monica we had expected the Bun Administration unveil a second round of executive orders on immigration this week. But now it's looking like that might not happen so quickly. What's going on? Right. We were expecting the Biden administration to unveil more changes on immigration this week, unraveling more of what the Trump administration did on immigration. Now there are some delays. We're not sure for how long it could be. That administration is trying to make these orders more airtight. Legally, We're just not sure. But what we are expecting soon is the unveiling of a task force that would reunite or try to reunite those families separated at the border during the Trump administration says and wait and see. Immigrant groups and advocates, of course, have been pushing for big changes to the immigration system for years. So eight days now into the new administration. What are you hearing? From your sources about how this rollout on immigration is going so far. They're generally optimistic and hopeful about what the bite administration is rolling out. You know you're hearing about. We're going to give the administration sometime. I spoke with Giuliana. My said, Don't Nascimento about this. She's with United. We dream and that's one of the larger immigrant advocacy groups in the United States. We don't give up on any of this, right. Like right now. We don't know. The viability of the big Biden bill. There's only the framework right the talking points from from the administration itself. We haven't seen language whatever we can get past and however many people we can get help for. We will fight for that. The court battles against everything that fighting is going to do on immigration or really clear just this week. We saw how a judge in Texas stopped Biden's temporary halt on a certain deportations. Right? I saw that a judge in Texas a Trump appointee, he temporarily blocked by 100 a moratorium on deportation. So tell us a bit more about that. And are you expecting a lot of right wing challenges to Biden's executive orders like this? So you write a judge in Texas hit pause on Biden's temporary block on certain deportations. It's 14 days suspension, it could go longer defense on the judge and the pushback against this moratorium on deportations is coming from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. He's the one suing to stop this. And he says that Texas is suffering harm because the more undocumented immigrants in the state of Texas only increases the state's health care and education costs for sure we're going to see legal fights challenges from the right at every turn for people who might be facing deportation. Monica What have you heard from them about this back and forth? I wanted to hear from people who could face deportation themselves, and I spoke with Julio assessor commit to He's a young and documented man in his twenties in the walkie, and he came to the U. S from Mexico when he was a kid and and asked him if he'd heard the news about this moratorium on deportation. He just heard about it. And this was his reaction. I was feeling safe before the moratorium being In place, and now I I really don't know like does this mean that at any moment now I could be separated from my family. Julio has a couple of misdemeanors. He's very vulnerable to being picked up by ice, and you know, he's in Milwaukee. Which is a kind of so called Sanctuary city. But he's in the state of Wisconsin. Which is not. He's keeping his expectations in place about all of this every dreamer undocumented person. Knows that this like, you know, with a new administration there, maybe hopes and That hope can be crushed. Obviously, understanding, though, that these things don't change overnight. Monica's You continue to follow Biden's actions on immigration. What do you looking out for next? Well, I was really struck by. You know what we saw Just this month. Large number of people mostly coming from Honduras wanting to enter the United States, you know, approach the US Mexico border. And how it was broken up. I was speaking to a woman in Honduras this week who's actually helping to reunite families separated at the border, and I was talking to her, and she's in rural Honduras does a lot of traveling, you know, long roads that have been washed out by hurricanes. You know these air these air parts of the world where people May not have a home to go back to, you know, maybe they set out to reach the United States earlier this month, and they came back, but they'll probably try and regroup and go back again. And so I'm definitely interested in How the Biden administration is going to treat people who are arriving to the border and other parts of the United States. You know, tomorrow. I mean, we're hearing a lot of discussion about the 11 million undocumented people who are already in the United States. But people keep arriving, right and so how How is that going to be addressed and And it's unclear. It's really unclear what would happen if we saw a large group, you know, approach the border tomorrow. The world's immigration editor, Monica Campbell, Thank you for being on the story. Monica, you're welcome. Theo islands of the South Pacific have largely avoided the ravages of the pandemic.

"I'm Marker Woman. This is the world It is good to have you with us today. While President Trump digs his heels in challenging election results, the declared winner is getting on with the business of planning his presidency, including how he'll tackle US immigration policy. I'm day one. I'm going to send a legislative immigration reform bill to Congress. Provide a roadmap to citizenship from 11 million undocumented immigrants that was candidate Joe Biden in June. The world's immigration editor, Monica Campbell, joins made to look at what a president Joe Biden could have in the works. Monica President Trump again. His administration by limiting immigration in broad strokes remind us what was enacted under Trump and how Biden when he becomes president is expected to respond. What can he do or undo by executive order? Well right out of the gate. The expectation is that they'll bring forward legislation to Congress to try and push forward a path to citizenship for the estimated 11 million undocumented people in the United States. It's something that Obama tried to do fail to Dio. And Biden will try again. It's going to be a huge challenge divided Congress and Senate so the pressure will be intense to move fast, quickly, boldly. And we'll hear plenty of people like Jose Munoz House who is a leader with United. We Dream, a national immigrant rights organization. People like Jose saying by then you better deliver young people latte next people first time voters. They came out in historic numbers to really, really help deliver. A key victory for Joe Biden. They showed up. There is a mandate for abiding administration to deliver bull progressive change on some of these issues right And so people like Jose, many people who organized to bring out especially in people from the Latino community to vote for bite into back, Biden. You're gonna want to see those efforts rewarded. What about the cap on refugee admission to the US Monica, like the numbers were high under Obama Historic low, though under Trump combined and just change the cap on day one. He can change the cop and he will do so, he said, and that he will raise that cap to about 125,000. And that's something that, of course, can't happen overnight because Resettlement agencies here in the United States. They had the layoff People close up offices. It's going to take time to restore that program, but that's something that bite and pledges to dio. Also, there's a range of possibilities of what Biden will be able to achieve in his first days. What could happen between Biden's first day and say, 100 days into his presidency? What will see right out of the gate or the things that President Biden Khun do by executive action. So, for example, lifting the various travel bans lifting the program that requires asylum seekers of the U. S Mexico border to remain in Mexico while their court cases play out in the United States. That's something that he can unwind immediately. There are many things that he could do by a presidential proclamation executive order including restoring the doc a program, which allows people who came to the United States as young Children, Tio have a work permit and not fear, deportation as much that, so there's a lot on the executive order front. We talk Monica about immigration policy as a concept, But you've been speaking with undocumented immigrants themselves who have a lot of steak here. What are you hearing? I'm hearing a lot of relief, especially from people who perhaps came here is young Children or have been living in the United States for many years and perhaps, or on the radar of immigration officials. You could say you know what? Under Trump, you are eligible for deportation. One person. I spoke with Marco and somebody I've been touched with all year Is this young man? His name's Julio. And he lives in Wisconsin. He's in his twenties, and we're only using his first name because in December he got a D y. And because he's undocumented that puts him on the radar for immigration agents for deportation. You know, ice could come to his door any time, pick him up and put him in detention center. I talked to him this week and This is what he said. This is a little bit of our conversation. I've been staying in safe places moving around to stay low, So I'm definitely limited. And so what? I could do your laying low and the inauguration might be a date of relief for you. In some ways, perhaps Definitely a day of relief as Muchas I I want to criticize Biden and Democrats. I am still somebody who you know, has a left leaning view of the world. I appreciate that We're going to get a fascist out of the office and we're gonna have somebody who can. Who's going to actually listen to us, and hopefully it'll be able T push for these changes that he says he's going to do. Well, that speaks volumes. Inauguration Day a day of relief, Monica What can President Trump still do between now and the 20th of January? He certainly can't do what he wanted to in a second term. But there's still plenty of under the radar tweaks and changes through the rules and regulations of the immigration system. There's going to be a lot of vigilance over the next few weeks over what the administration will want to try and accomplish on immigration, its signature issue. Until the day it exits. The world's immigration at it. Er Monica Campbell. Thank you very much. You're welcome.

"In the West have been catastrophic. At least 27 people are dead. Millions of acres of land torched and the skies above parts of California, Oregon and Washington blanketed in toxic smoke. Some people, many of them immigrants are now being forced to choose between their health and a paycheck. The world's Monica Campbell spoke with some immigrant farm workers about the difficult choices in front of them right now. The air was so thick in southern Oregon, it was like a white out, burning your eyes and throat, but Maricela kept working harvesting grapes for merlot wine. She sent me a video of herself working in eight hour shift outside. Her hands moves so fast, The video seems sped up. She's careful to protect the tiny grapes but protecting herself from the smoke around her that comes second. She can't afford to miss work, she says. She makes $12 an hour has bills to pay and wires all she can to feed her kids in Mexico. Normally, she likes her boss. But right now she's angry about what I have to choose between my health and a paycheck. She says. Her boss apologized. But the graves needed picking wants to speak openly. Maricela asked me not to say her last name or where she works. She worries she could get fired. This reality, along with notoriously weak labor regulations have kept farm workers breathing toxic smoke all along the West Coast. Estella Cisneros is an advocate with California rural legal assistance. She says that many farm workers are particularly sensitive to smoke because they have preexisting health conditions because they have low socioeconomic status because they have Less access to healthcare. They're already vulnerable to the negative effects of prolonged exposure and inhalation of smoke. I asked Doug Parker about this. He leads California's division of Occupational Safety and Health. Cal OSHA He says. If the air quality index tops 150 considered unhealthy, then employers must provide respirators. Those in 95 masts, which are sturdier and have a small filter, But many farm workers say that's not happening. That's disturbing. It's the employers obligation Provide protective equipment to employees plan is simple. If masks are available, it's up to workers to decide to wear them. It's voluntary. They're not required unless the air quality Index or why tops 500 for context. On some of the worst days of smoke on the West Coast, the Kuai was in the three hundreds. You definitely didn't go outside if he didn't have Tio Parker wishes he had stronger tools to protect farm workers. But he says he simply doesn't have enough enforcement officers to sweep every agricultural site in California to flag violations. I would really like to hear from workers more about situations that could be hard for some farm workers to speak up if they're undocumented or have flimsy contracts or no union. One man who didn't want his name on air kept harvesting almonds in Fresno, California, Even a smoke filled the area from a massive fire. He says his farm didn't provide masks. Although he's heard that some do. I told him about an anonymous tip line that workers can call if employers aren't following the rules. Quintillion moment. No, I wouldn't call that number. He says. What if it gets traced back to me? That's a big concern for farm worker advocates. So when possible, they try to help in person turned the camera here. You can see, We can't even look at this guy because, like all the smoke around us in Oregon, I talked with Daisy Bedoya over video call. She's with a non profit that helps farm workers south of Portland. All week. Bedoya has been passing out face masks and bags have donated food, Tio evacuees and two people who have managed to not work because of the smoke. We havin a family line of food, anything from protein bars, granola coffee, One couple approaches the donation table. If they want. 100 samples were here for help the mounts as standing up to his pregnant wife, Zoya asks if they work in the fields. Yes, they say, but not today. Our boss said, stay home. Oi hopes the donations will make it easier for more people to do that. She understands the realities. Her family worked on farms after migrating from Mexico. Taking Marissa's well I've done in my brother have funny, she knows farm workers are not always protected. Even now, with smoke swirling all around they're having to work outside. Really hard conditions. It's very frustrating that they're always the ones that are at the end and the last one that people think of it. That's how I feel about it. But Bedoya also feels thankful for all the people who made donations and who are trying to keep farm workers safe for the world. Monica Campbell You're listening to the world.

"Union member states. For example from yesterday to today I was translating from Portuguese Taliban and because if I people who started to request to understanding of order it was people who work for cessation Italy said Hey. How'd you do this? We Wanna read this order because apparently Italy has not opened up. Its services to immigrants Like Portugal who exactly are Portugal's imigrants? Monica where were they mostly from? The majority are from Brazil the vast majority and then you have immigrants from Romania from Ukraine and from China as well as from parts of Africa. It really seems like Portugal's trying to do the best for everybody who lives there As compared to the US right now. It's a stark contrast. We know that the federal bill the stimulus bill does not open the door to a lot of immigrants here in the United States. Basically if you want to access unemployment insurance if you want to access the cash rebate you know the talks that are supposed to be sent out you need a social security number that blocks a lot of access to relief for many many immigrants here in the United States. You don't have a social security number. Many of those who are also deemed essential workers at this time. The world's immigration editor Monica Campbell. Thanks very much for telling us about some of the some of the benefits opening up for immigrants in Portugal. Really appreciate it. You're welcome when something like a global pandemic hits. Everyone seems to agree. That's the time to set politics. Aside right yea right in Hungary. The government Viktor. Orban's has passed sweeping new powers to try and halt the cove in nineteen outbreak. But there are big concerns over what this all means for the future of Hungarian democracy. The world's ORLA Barry has our story when lawmakers in Hungary overwhelmingly to pass emergency laws to fight the corona virus. The Hungarian public should not have been surprised after all. It's been happening all across Europe. According to Tom Kovach he's a government spokesman The same centralized measures are in place in Italy. Spain in France in the Netherlands and other places so Hungary is not experimenting something special. These extraordinary measures the routine today all over the globe but there is a difference. Most countries in Europe have placed a time limit on emergency measures setting a certain date for new laws to be reviewed and maybe revoked but not Hungary that is extremely unusual and actually is the most concerning element Martha part. V is with the Hungarian Helsinki Committee a human rights group based in Budapest. She says new emergency measures in Hungary could go far beyond just protecting the public from the impact of the virus. The Hungarian government also under this emergency mandate can adopt basically any type of government decree. It can set aside laws. It contains laws. There is no sort of hard limits on the type of topics that these government decrease can touch on. Viktor Orban's government was hardly a beacon of democracy up to now but part. V says recent moves. Do not bode well for Hungary's future. I think there's quite a cause for alarm given how the Hungarian government in the past ten years has really been on a course of dismantling strong checks and balances and creating an environment which actually assist the executive branch of government to do its job with the least hindrance. In other words this is really about executive overreach but Kovac. The government spokesman dismisses that criticism Extraordinary Measures. The rights to rule by decree is confined to the area of fighting wireless. No other measures can be taken. It's temporary because parliament can revoke anytime and parliament remains operational. That's true revoking emergency lows however will take two thirds majority in parliament and the opposition parties in Hungary. Full very far short of that. It's not just the lack of a sunset clause that setting off alarm bells. There's also a new five-year prison term for anyone. Found guilty of spreading false information about the virus. Some worry that the real goal here is to silence dissent and stifle freedom of expression. Peter a day is with an independent media outlets in Budapest. Your turn on TV. And you'll see people calling for the arrests of reporters and editors and I think that will have a chilling effect. Even if people don't believe that they are going to get arrested. This will affect you if you hear on the news that people are calling for your arrest at Bull Affect you day wonders. What will happen? If journalists ask questions about Hungary's healthcare system which has been poorly funded during Orban's rule. European leaders are asking questions to and I'm particularly concerned with the situation. In Hungary. That's our slow Vondra. Line President of the European Commission which says it will examine political developments in Hungary emergency measures in the corona prices. Maybe necessary but these emergency measures have to be limited and very important they should be subject to regular scrutiny. We will take action as necessary as we have already done in the past but taking action against Hungary is complicated journalist. Peter our day says the e you could try to hold back funding. Hungary economy is reliant on EU money and subsidies and we are reliant on other economies. And if this could affect you subsidies hungry could be getting. I think that could possibly have effects on their policies but the reality is that any move like that would need the support of a you leaders at Hungary's neighbors like Poland are unlikely to go along because the Polish government fears. It could be next e you states are also struggling to cope with the curl virus themselves so if to Orban really is going for power grab. It's just one more headache. E You could do without for the world. I'm Waterbury in London. With the corona virus. Kids have questions lots of them in New Zealand. Children had a pressing concern for their prime minister to send. Our dern is the Easter bunny an essential worker it will be placed in our that we do consider both the tooth fairy. The Easter Bunny to be essential workers. The prime minister did add a caveat though the bunny and to ferry are pretty busy and also need to stay home with their own families just like the rest of us so sadly the Easter Bunny and tooth fairy may not have time to visit all the kids in New Zealand this year not to worry those said prime minister are dern. I have a bit of an idea that may be in lieu of the Bunny Bing over to make it to your home. You can create your own Easter hunt for the children in your neighborhood. Not Your Typical Easter Egg. Hunt no basket in hand. Got To keep the kids. Six feet apart. Can't have them diving for the same egg. Maybe drawer an Easter egg and pop it into your front window and help children in your neighborhood with their own. Easter egg hunt a smart way to distract children with the added benefit of no putrid smell from that one egg that the kid couldn't manage to find. Panama is taking some unusual steps to try and halt the spread of the corona virus. A gender based curfew women can leave the House on Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays men on Tuesdays Thursdays and Saturdays Sundays. Everyone must stay indoors. Chavez urines is a pediatric infectious disease specialist who is serving on the Advisory Commission for the Corona virus in Panama. Doctor says why did Panama Institute a curfew along gender lines when he's not based on set? The main strategy is to cut in half the relation of people in the streets so at the beginning we're started with the last number of the national identity car so let's say if if the last number was four people was allowed to leave the house for supermarkets or pharmacies between Dion Five. So when we saw that means that people were not everyday so we had to rely the best way to go dotting half so I mean was there another metric that you could've used to essentially divide the population in half like was gender. Just the most obvious one for the policeman control the city of people in the streets for example in Monday Wednesday Friday only women in the streets. I the other this man. So why not related to sex differentiation? You was only created gutting half the people in the streets. So I see Peru has also started gender-based curfew as well. How are these work aiming? What's your experience in Panama? Are you finding that it makes a meaningful difference? We believe that making it very because we see less people in the streets. What what is the current situation in terms of infection and mortality in Panama with cove in nineteen are you? Are you bothered by the numbers? Compared to other countries right now we have two thousand cases two point five percent mortality Panama International for sea and air for the region. So we have many stories coming to for business and for stories we have institute. A research institution hearing analogy very well known to rationalize call us east of research and they have mapped the whole genome of the virus and they have traced the first buyers enter the country. They dress to travel from Europe and then travels from us because we cut almost immediately all the traffic from China after that we have to decide to got all the traveling and she being taken out is the Panama Canal. Now closed. Isn't that glows. Chips can go through. But who is minimal amount of anime impersonal? Helping inside the sheet Zambia. Say is a urines as a pediatric infectious disease. Specialist and also on the Advisory Commission for the Corona virus in Panama. Doctor Thank you very much. Thanks to you. More than a third of the planet's population is under some form of a lockdown. Think about that about two and a half billion people indoors you know by now how tough it is to cram into small spaces with other people for weeks on end just in the nick of time. Here's the world's Bianca Hillier with some tips from two women who are spending a long time together in very tight quarters on purpose son of a sorby and Hilda. Following strong have lived separate but similar lives. The two women in their fifties have spent decades exploring opposite ends of the world the Antarctic and the Arctic. But now they couldn't be too much closer together. Hello IS THIS BIANCA. Cinnabar calling Silva who is Canadian and Hilda? Who's Norwegian called me from their one room wooden cabin in Saul barred a cluster of islands between Norway and the North Pole known for their rugged terrain of glaciers and frozen Tundra. The islands are home to more polar bears reindeer and Arctic foxes than people. It's closer than off and it's extreme. Even the self-proclaimed polar ambassadors have been there for seven months. If actually they won ninety six day one ninety-six of being isolated by choice for a good cause son of and Hilda our citizens scientists who teamed up with researchers to record whether patterns test new technologies for solar and wind energy and observe wildlife behavior in one of the most remote areas on the planet. They don't have any running water or electricity. And there's nobody to speak with but each other we're living in a very very small space in the mayes taping in in what we could call the living room and I'm sleeping in what we call the kitchen. The found a few tricks to cope with the closeness. I Hilde says to start the day on your own terms. We have a little. I'm in the morning when we're waiting for the house from okay. Temperatures and we're in HR bands and reading and writing. And Um slowly come alive and this is called little son of a says they consider this alone time to be almost sacred as they prepare for a full day of intense togetherness we try to things together and find the day to get her. It doesn't always happen because we're normal people. We both have feelings and mood just like with any relationship. Son of a says communication is key. We need something we asked for it. Like if we need the space or time or something we live in a world war sometimes. We're not used to doing that. We think that it's selfish to ask what we need. I think that's the most unselfish thing people could do right now. He'll also says. Make sure to make space for fun. Once the day's work is done. They always try to celebrate. We always have Friday night every night. They loved to listen to joss stone on their ipod or watch one of the few movies they brought with them on a hard drive and they always make dinner together because a lot of energy and the meal into the dinner and we always my handle. We tried to do something special every day.

Basic Services Hygiene is a major concern whole families living in tents that is definitely a circumstance that's affecting hundreds and hundreds of people and why does the trump administration wants to keep this program in place? Why is it important to them? Well it's trying to make asylum-seeking much harder. They say that it's not right. That people seeking asylum. Stay in the United States live here. The administration feels that a lot of these people have dubious asylum claims and then they end up just staying in the United States so federal court blocked from Mexico. Now it's back. What are you going to be looking? Out FOR NEXT MONICA. We'll see whether the program remains on or suspended. The migrants themselves are also watching this very closely. They are holding out.

We don't really have a sense or understand what the long term implications of looking at that kind of stuff day in and day out will be a year from now. Five years from now, ten years down the road that story coming up here on the world. I'm Marco werman misses the world. We're a co production of the BBC World Service, PRI and WG be h here in Boston. Beijing. And they will bring the heat this week. A crowd of pool of democratic candidates. Heads two. Yup, Miami for their first prime-time debates. President Donald Trump has looked to a crackdown on immigration as a rallying point for his reelection bid and democratic candidates are fighting back. Cruelty has failed. I want us to choose compassion. I believe that immigrants. Don't diminish America that they are America the pill. A billion Muslims in the world that they are not welcome to come into the United States here to discuss. How immigration is playing out among the democratic candidates, and what to expect in this week's debates is the world's Monica Campbell. Hey, Monica K mart com, how would the democratic candidates positioning themselves on immigration? Well, there a lot of candidates, but they're definitely going to hammer away at what we're seeing right now on the border with the kids and how they're being treated on the border. We're going to hear a lot about that. I went down to the border, and I saw where children had been taken away from their mothers name, little children have been separated from their mothers, people right now, we do not condone as an American value, putting children in cages through cruel policies like family separation are only getting worse. Yeah. Just a sampling of some of the opinions on what's happening at the border. Let's clearly something candidates will be quick to address Monica, but immigration. It's a massive thing. It's more than. Just a border issue in detention centers. What else are they proposing? Well, they're very consistent on immigration, this time round, most are pushing comprehensive immigration reform and they're saying right out of the gate, they'll quickly reverse what Trump has done on immigration. So though, we're store DACA for so-called dreamers and expand it, though, restore the number of refugees the United States accepts which right now is rock bottom of they'll get rid of the travel ban. And finally, they're all very vocal about seeing what's going on at the border. What many call humanitarian crisis seeing it as a humanitarian crisis in not as a security issue. We're their differences among the candidates when it comes to immigration. Are there any bold proposals that stand out when you really gotta look hard to see where there are nuances, some proposals are bolder than others? For example, Kamala Harris, the Senator from California, cheese. Says she would take more unilateral moves executive orders right out of the gate if she becomes president, making it, for example, easier for some undocumented immigrants to get green cards and a path to citizenship, and Julia in custody. Oh, the former mayor of San Antonio, and former secretary of HUD, he was out, I with the most detailed immigration plan. And it's not surprising though, he is from Texas. And he's lived the story, an immigrant life in many ways, I grew up with a grandmother, who came over here from the United States, when she was seven years old from Mexico with her little sister, and they came because their parents had died, and she ended up on the west side of San Antonio raise. My mom is a single parent. She was basically like a second mother to me. She came here, like I bet a lot of your parents and grandparents did, or maybe some of you have with hardly, anything and Castro's proposing to eliminate detention centers. In keeping people out of detention centers, except for the most serious cases. And he also wants to decriminalize crossing the border without authorization. I think it's safe to say the democratic candidates generally are pro immigrant and largely were in two thousand sixteen. Are you seeing any shift, though from then compared to now what I'm seeing is that the candidates are less, wishy washy than in twenty sixteen? They're not saying you know, it's a path toward becoming a legal permanent resident. No, they're saying it's a path to citizenship. So these issues that may have seemed important only to immigrant..

So we had to make the difficult choice to be together, but have to move to be together. So we chose love and moved to London because of that.

It's wrong. You both seem very much at ease in the world at large wise and important to you that your kids become American citizens. Well, being American is a fundamental part of my identity and part of who I am. And I feel that my children that is a big part of their identity to and also for Lucas to be told you're not as much. Much a part of, of Alison as mossy is, is just heartbreaking. And when we started this fight, he was too young to understand. But he's now at the age where he asked questions about everything, and I mean, everything. So when we're doing interviews, even about the case right now. I just feel like I don't want him to be exposed to it because how do I explain to him? You are different from your brother. You're not as much mine as he is. And that's I just don't want to shouldn't have two. So he's starting to ask questions. What, what, what are you thinking about the day that they both are actually asking questions about this, and you will have to explain it to them? Dread, fundamentally dread, and sadness and anger. I really hope that we don't have to get to that. And they won't have to watch us going through immigration in the US all the time by going via the longest queue that the list, it's just me that has to do that. Rather than Lucas is well. And so I'm hoping that they all get solved them. We don't get to that, so that we don't have to explain it a list now, when they are old enough, we can proudly explain how we have vote for them.

"So she know scrambles gets a photo since the photo, and it just seemed like that was the norm week after week and. Would like to note that the government also required that the the American couple that she's living with also had to get fingerprinted kind of late in the game. And that was something that was unexpected. Because apparently, not not everybody has to be fingerprinted in the household these days, but it's it's unsure how that policy plays out. Monica. You mentioned that Vladi is one of ten thousand kids in US custody right now. So are there ten thousand variations on Vladi story? Like are there ways in which you'd say Vladi is pretty typical? Yeah. He it's one story. But in some ways, I think flighty story does represent a lot of what we see you know, that these kids face who are in detention in federal custody. They've got loved ones in the United States who are going through all the hoops and trying to hustle and make reunification happen as quickly as possible at the same time in this particular case, Veronica has a pending asylum. Case. So she is protected from deportation to an extent I'm thinking about a lot of kids in detention and shelters who have parents or loved ones who are completely undocumented. And don't have an asylum case pending who may be fearful of the US immigration officials getting their information and possibly than facing deportation themselves. So it's incredibly tricky and a lot of families are facing really hard decisions about what to do when kids are in detention you've reported on my Gration and attention of family separation for years Monica in this reporting, where they're things that you learned or that struck you in a different way. Yeah. I was really struck following veronica's data day, wait for her son. I'm a new parent, and I couldn't imagine, you know, parenting through such an extreme circumstance putting your kid on a path that, you know, me, you know. She says the best thing for him in the long run. But that journey was so unpredictable just seeing Veronica sitting by her and watching that roller coaster feeling through her was incredible. I had never experienced in only years of immigration reporting just the day to day tedium and stress, and I was really grateful for Ronco lowering me to kind of be with her through this process, and you worked on Vlada mom, Veronica story for months, but last night, there was very last minute update.

"The American dialogue a think tank in Washington. The big mistake was not diversifying the economy and being so dependent so reliant on the petroleum sector. That's virtually the only thing that Venezuela produces and on top of all of that Shifter says corruption in Venezuela was rampant everything everybody. No, huge surprise inequality and resentment grew it would have been much wiser in retrospect to have had a more attention on targeted social policies in the nineteen ninety s there was a desire for change and especially for the poor. They wanted a voice and Chavez I think very effectively tapped into that desire Ugo CIA was a leftist to appeal to Venezuela's poor. It's a political ad from China's winning presidential campaign in nineteen ninety eight is basically says in Venezuela. It's time for the people. Gabby at the time. He was a young charismatic military, man. A third party candidate in a historically two party system. As President Chavez also ran Venezuela's economy almost entirely on oil, but he benefited from higher prices. He invested a lot of the profits into social programs to help the poor and many Venezuelans loved him for it. But there was also a lot of cronyism and inept management within his administration Chavez died in office in twenty thirteen of cancer his successor Nicolas Maduro stepped in and ran the economy into the ground. Michael Shifter says Venezuela has now come full circle the problems today are magnified, but they're the same kind. You know, the corruption is monumental. Mismanagement monumental. And so it's interesting to reflect on the same themes being touched on by Hong y though the interim president of as well as was touched on by you chose twenty years ago.
