Democrats Assess Where They Went Wrong as a ‘Red Tsunami’ Takes Hold in New York

"The fault line is being exposed, the Democrats are doing an autopsy of why they lost in every possible direction from Edward durr to the Virginia governor's race to the lieutenant governor's race in Virginia. How bad was it actually? Well, I just want to. I want to hear, let's just local news report cut 87. This is in New York, Nassau county. Play cut 87 just so you understand what Democrats are dealing with. Even in New York play tape. The shock resonated from the New York suburbs down the eastern seaboard. People are saying there was a red wave, they're wrong. It was a red tsunami. Republican Bruce blakeman declaring victory in the Nassau executive race considered the biggest upset here since Edmund Ghana when seated Tom swazi in 2009. We had the right message. It was taxes. It was crime. People are fed up with a liberal, progressive policies of the other party. This isn't the party of John F. Kennedy anymore. It's the party of AOC and Bernie Sanders, and they're rejecting that. And Joe Biden, they're rejecting that. I said this yesterday to Connor, and I said this to Andrew, I said, if the Democrats continue with this, and if they are unable to inoculate themselves, and remove the tumor, that is woke ism from their party. It is not out of the conversation that if conservatives do their job, and they don't, they're not run by a bunch of feckless morons, which is so often the case, we could end up winning states like New Jersey and Connecticut. We could win 40 out of 50

"To see to new york for the report. Police controversial bill passed in the nassau legislature tonight. The measure increases protections for police allowing them to sue protesters in certain cases. Opponents rallied to reject the bill that would elevate officers to a protected class of first responders. The measure allows the county attorney to sue on behalf of officers for discrimination if they're harassed menaced or injured. Violators could face penalties of up to fifty thousand dollars now. I don't know why believes would need to sue people who harassed them and i put harass in air quotes. Because i don't know what's going to define harassment now do people yell at cops. During protests. yes. But usually i see offices agitating protest is not the other way around. And if you do get to spotty with a cop they can arrest you. They already have the power to arrest you if you are harassing them. So what's the point of suing. This is so crazy to me because when you hit activists say they want to end qualified immunity for police officers his because qualified immunity protect state and local officials including police officers from personal liability unless are determined to have violated the court defined as an individual's clearly established statutory or constitutional rights and. The court usually always side with the police. So that doesn't happen but how to hell a protest is able to be held personally liable before. Police are brian sullivan.

You gotta y'all got to start having for your elected officials and lawmakers okay. This bill doesn't even detail definitions of harassment. Okay missing another conduct and it would give officers too much power to pursue a lawsuit for example. A police officer would be able to sue bystanders. Right remember people. Were yelling at that devil. Derek chauvinism suppresses knee into the late. George floyd's neck. Police officers could sued him okay. Police officers sue civil penalties of twenty five thousand pro. Violation are total of fifty thousand if these violations occurred during a riot. This is crazy. Okay if this become the trend across the country. Protesters are in trouble and protesters will think twice about speaking out against the injustice. People suffered at the hands of the police. A lot of these situations happen in areas. Where folks don't have money. They can't afford to get sued so now they really gonna mind their business when they see you know an injustice right when they see people suffering at the hands of the police.

"I was in New York City. Public schools shut their doors today because of the 3% positivity rate. As we've been discussing the Nassau and Suffolk County executives are both strongly disagreeing with Mayor De Blasio is decision to do that and to use that threshold. Positivity rate in National County is 3.5% even higher and Suffolk, But Nassau County executive Laura Current is leaving school closures up to the 56 local school district's in the county and says she would only order a Countywide closure if they hit 9%. That's the state standard three times the threshold the city is using. Talk about that and more now with Nassau County executive Laura current. She also has an article in New York magazine called Held Long Island County fought Covert. 19, a county executive looks back at the first wave. Executive Current. Always good to have you on Welcome back to W N. Y C. Good morning, Brian. And thank you very much for having me back. So, your statement says, Quote I strongly disagree with Mayor De Blasio is decision to close down schools in New York City. I want to make clear to our residents that I will do everything I can to keep our schools open, unquote. Why criticize the mayor by name there rather than just make your own decision for Nassau County. Well, I felt it was important, since this is really dominating the news cycle and, of course, New York City News really dominates the news in the suburbs. I just wanted to make it very clear to our residents. That the safest place for kids right now is in school. The schools, you know, it's a little bit different in Nassau County. So in the city, the mayor is in charge of the schools. Out here in Nassau County. We have 56 independent school district with their own elected boards. They make their own policy and make their own decisions, of course, with guidance from the state. Um, but my goal is to make sure that our health department, our county Health department Is working with them, helping interpret the guidance, helping them with contact tracing etcetera, and we've made very good relationships. So my goal is to get the word out there that it's very important for kids to stay in school right now. As I said, it's the safest place for kids are 56 school districts have really and I have kids in public school myself. They've done a fantastic job at this social distancing and ensuring math compliance and having kids on alternate days and all of that. They've really recalibrated quickly, and we're not seeing transmission within the school buildings. So you know, you did mention where a 3.5 yesterday. Our latest number was 3.3% that is concerning because we had been down it around 1% positivity rate, but the uptick isn't happening in the schools. It's not happening in the businesses and the gyms and the bowling alleys. It's really happening at these social gatherings, and I know that a lot of people have Covad fatigue. But people are still having these sweet sixteens and going off to other states to have big weddings and then coming back. That's where we're seeing the uptick. So I'm saying to everyone in the You can hear my voice. If you know you're not worried about yourself. You're not worried about your family. Think about the kids who need to be in school. Think about the businesses that need to operate. Keep people working. And, um, you know, as I said, school is safe right now, and I'm closing schools should be a last resort. That's what the CDC Protocol say in anything like a flu like pandemic Closing schools is the last resort. In March. It made sense. We got to that point We had 50% You know, we're getting into 50% positivity rate. At that point. It makes sense. At this point. It just doesn't make

New York City beaches open for holiday weekend, no swimming allowed

"A few days at the beach is typically a no brainer for Memorial Day weekend needless to say it is a little bit more complicated this year some beaches are open some are restricting who can go others are restricting what you can do there here to tell us where new Yorkers and new Jerseyans can go to welcome the summer wireless socially distancing is WNYC's Karen Yi and the Jake often hearts of Gothamist Karen Jake hello hi David it it it there is still so much we don't know about cope with nineteen but many epidemiologists say that with social distancing precautions in place heading to the beach does not pose a large threat for people in low risk groups Cameron let's start with you governor Murphy said beaches would re open for the holiday weekend is that right yes that's right so Murphy has said if speech is re opened they need to limit the amount of people on the beach and enforced social distancing so it's really gonna be up to each municipality to decide how to do that and what parts of the beaches or boardwalks to re open so remember not all of the beach is closed during the pandemic some have already re opened and some remain partially close and it's equally as complicated in New York City right Jake governor Cuomo joined New Jersey Connecticut and Delaware to open up the beaches but mayor bill de Blasio technically won't open up city beaches that's right David New York City is fourteen miles on public beaches are technically close what that really means is the beaches are closed to swimming sports picnics many of the social things people go to the beach for but you can still walk sit on the beach or even dip your feet into the water up to your ankles the idea is to discourage nothing Yorkers from going to the beach so it's not over crowded what about beaches on Long Island to Jones beach the Hamptons these are very popular spots for new Yorkers or they could be an option many all island beaches will be open this weekend but they're not exactly rolling out the red carpet for us New York City residents several towns including East Hampton have plans to limit or entirely banned outsiders from their shores that's led to some regional contentions of Nassau County official had to walk back in down and out of towners on Nickerson beach after my colleague Sylvia Chang points out that beaches that receive federal funding must be open to the public the state run beaches like Robert Moses in Jones beach will be open to everyone but they're restricting capacity to fifty percent and governor Cuomo says people could be turned away from parking lot as early as ten AM single parking is always a problem and beaches in both states Karen tell us about the Jersey Shore is parking to be restricted even more than usual yes so again it's gonna come down to home rule it's New Jersey right so it's gonna be up to each town since sandy hook which is run by the National Park Service is limiting parking to fifty percent and so is island beach state park which is run by the state mayors have told me that they're gonna be announcing reminders on loudspeakers there's gonna be civilian ambassadors patrolling the boardwalk there's gonna be a lot of signage but really it's gonna have to come down to trust trust that people will do the right thing and act responsibly what Jake in New York City you have reported on members of the NYPD enforcing social distancing measures in physically aggressive ways in the subways and on city streets can new Yorkers expect a large police presence on the beaches what is the plan for monitoring resource can definitely expect to see a major law enforcement presence this weekend and why PDP stale has been up thirty percent they'll be joined by parks police and thousands of social distancing ambassadors similar to New Jersey if things get too crowded the mayor says they may even put up fencing literally barricading the beaches anyone who tries to swim will be ordered out well in New Jersey some mayors are concerned about not enough police presence on the beaches Cameron that what are you hearing I spoke two point pleasant beach mayor Paul Kenitra and he's very concerned about this so his speech is partially open not the boardwalk so this means that Jenkins beach is also gonna be close but the biggest problem for him and re opening everything is that he says he can't hire the seasonal officers who normally boost up as police force during the summer because all the training academies are closed so for the things that are open for the part of each that is open he says this weekend will be a test run for whether the precautions they've implemented will work we need to see how realistic it is to have our badge checkers wearing the mask and gloves and in hot weather we need to make sure that our lifeguards are able to you know the date people and do things appropriately with the set up that we have one up one down on the lifeguard stands in with the new half the filters for their resuscitation devices so the mayor said there's really no playbook for this I mean everybody is really trying out what works for their particular beach okay so if people can solve the puzzle of finding an open beach what happens when they get there will there be open public restrooms or boardwalk restaurants open for food pickup so curbside pickup is allowed for nonessential businesses take out is going to continue for restaurants a New Jersey recently allowed to go cocktails on the public restroom issue again that's going to depend on the town whether they decide to open those or how they apply limits to that the one thing that the state is encouraging is that everyone wear a mask right and it's the same thing in New York there will be some to go through the options available re sparked beaches are is open many of the vendors on Coney Island and they'll be some bathrooms and Porta potties starting this weekend and finally you keep in mind the water's going to be fifty five degrees not exactly swimming weather even if you are out yeah I think that's gonna keep a lot of people out of the water we'll have to hear much more about how it goes this weekend WNYC's Karen Yi and the Gothamist reporter Jake often hearts thank you for joining us thanks

This is this is from intelligence and information that we share with you know, what's up. Federal agencies and local agencies. The information that's testing. We were able to prepare for nobody was nobody was police. Officers will kill nobody in the public with. To stay on the point of this move by the county, executive, do you think that and thank goodness you're able to prevent any police officer from being killed by the plot. Do you think it had anything to do with the fact that I had a visible presence near the visitor's entrance to the county Correctional Center? Do I think that that had anything to do with saving that lifestyle? I think saving. No, I think the fact that ice does also does interviews in the jail daily with with gang members. You know, inmates identify who these members on or see also they were part of fossil deporting gang members back to the country, which they came from. He's a heart symbol did tell us what we're we're finding bodies of Latino children's throughout the county. And we're worried about I don't know what worries about here.

I'm glad she didn't. She didn't you Victor ice from from there so county. Yes, I would prefer them to be up to jail and it's secure facility. Not not not quite a hospital where you're dealing with the public. I would think it would be a smarter place. You know, tactically put him in the gel. There was a survey of local lawyers and advocates who work with immigrants last year done by the advocacy group, the immigrant defense project, and it found for example, that forty five percent of these lawyers and advocates who worked with emigrants personally say they have worked with immigrants and Trump was elected who have either failed to file a petition in court or withdrawn one already filed for fear that New York's criminal Justice system is working with ice. And there were other stats like that. In the survey, you were just talking about the importance of ice having access to people in the county jail when they haven't been accused of federal crimes or even serious crimes, assuming that's happening. Do do you? Do you care about those findings and the possible impact on public safety for immigrants in the county? Of course, I do I you know, what listen in the last election when we were choosing. Candidate. And it was between the county executive and Jack Martin the Republican candidates. We get polls. And polls were how was Napa county police? You know, what how does the public feel about the Nassau County? Police we in the minority communities. We called seventy nine suspense. Favorability from the United States in the minority neighborhoods recording Latino community. We're we're all about public service. We're all about taking care of anyone and everyone in Nassau County. That's not that's not the issue here. The issue here is that you're you're weakening what we got going on. We have a good situation in the county. Police department is a strong police department, and ISIS was one of one of our tools that we use we help them. They help us we could tacked on. We have some people texting to say in effect tweeting I should say in the fact that they find a chilling that one hundred cops would gather as a show of force against the public safety judgment of civilian elected officials. Not intimidating not scary as a show of political force. No, no, no, no. It was as you heard. What I said I made a plea to her. I made a plea to stop. I asked her to stop. I said we have ten days to stop this. That's what I did. It's not it's wasn't. It wasn't a meant to intimidate anyone. You know? It's just the amount of people you can pick. You can get together on a freezing cold morning that that working Warren force. That knows what has to be done to get the jobs on to protect the people Nassau County. How do you protect? At the level of the police officers who are members of your union. Protect immigrants from feeling too scared to report crime out of this fear of ice education. You know, I think you'll get a ruling from a court ruling doesn't say that anything has to happen. He just says you can't it restricts. What the you know what we can do? It doesn't say you have to be from from anywhere and getting. County never said that like I said in Suffolk County and nobody else on this. I think would be education. She was talking about police model. We haven't strongly smart. Get get out there. Get the information how we're not. We're not the enemy where the where the friends of the people, especially the victim. Victims in the in the Latino communities are are falling prey to MS thirteen. They're the ones that need a most. Yes, I I want to help them. But what by doing what she planned on doing? And what she that? She reversed field on. She must have must have been a reason that reversed field or, you know, her position because she was she was getting rid of him. Mistake about that. Last thing as as a follow up. You said before that ice going into the county Correctional Center. To try to seek out gang members. What grounds do they have to call the young person a gang member if they haven't been charged with a gang related crime? They you might be helping to deport teams or young adults innocent of criminal activity. Just because of who I think's the associate with. Oh, you know what I'm not in jail. I'm a police officer. Oh, it's my understanding. You're identifying that doesn't mean like somebody from. You put it put a tag on you and say, your MS thirteen or Latin king like that? That would just sick. You like white glue everything gets investigated. We don't we don't do things. I didn't ask. We don't just wrote tags on people and without investigating. I would assume it be the same with ice. And the and the jails James McDonough, Nassau County police benevolent association, president thank you so much for a few minutes today. We really appreciate it. Thank you. Brian have great day and one more brief take on ice agents being allowed to work Jason to Nassau County Correctional Center grounds this time. From the pro immigrant advocacy group make the road New York with us is glee Korea. See O'Connell who is a senior staff attorney at make the road, New York, Lee Korea. Thank you for joining us. Welcome to WNYC. Thank you very much. Thank you for having me. So what happened here as you see it? And what's the result? So what did we see? And I've been listening at through the last conversation is I mean as an organization we are actually appreciative of the executives moved during the ice out of the jail. But as an advocacy group, we still continue to believe that I should not be given any county space to operate from. And the message here is that I should not be part of our communities, and I should not be collaborating with local law enforcement in doing. So they make every unless safe as it was mentioned earlier. There are a lot of individuals who are not motivated to report a crime because of fear of their own immigration status. And therefore, you know, by not reporting crimes are communities are less safe less. People are not coming. Forward. Do you fear of of their own immigration status? So our goal here should be to protect families to protect our communities and not to tear them apart. As we have seen a federal administration do since it took office. I guess the argument on the other side is why shouldn't ice have access to people already in the criminal Justice system for crimes or alleged crimes that have landed them in the county jail. If the background checks reveal that they are also in the country illegally and might have ties to a violent gang. Well, that is something that we all first of all we don't know how those how that information is being shared, and we don't know how one is being identified as a gang member. We see in court. We received documents saying that this person has been identified as a gang member. However, we do not know we don't have any information as to how one is identified who identifies the must such and what we see actual. We don't know how those gang databases operate. What we have seen is that they actually it is actually very easy for one to get into a database, but there's no information as to how they operate and how how one mix it into the database what we have seen is basically ice trying to vilify and humanize immigrants, especially young immigrants all island, and as a result that has an effect on their immigration status on there. You know, ability to fight their case in court, and what we have seen is a lot of racial profiling or a person being enter entering a database or being identified as a gang member. Just because they happen to be at a certain place. That is a so called known gang location, or because they wear certain color of clothing, which is the finishing of or because they come from a from a certain they have the the color of their skin is, you know, not what we wanted to be. So it's you know, we see a lot of racial profiling so Long Island. So the compromise that the county executive and the police unions came to was that the ice trailer with six ice agents working from it would no longer be near the visitor's entrance to the correctional facility. It would be moved to the adjacent county property the county hospital and the county. -secutive said it would not be right by an entrance. So wouldn't be intimidating to to local residents or might be undocumented. However, we're getting a call from somebody who works at that hospital. I think he's the situation a little different. And it's Patrick in Nassau County. You're on WNYC Patrick. Thank you for calling in. Yeah. I don't work at the hospital. I work with immigrants right near the house. But okay, I live in Westbury, and I can tell you that the entrance that the county executive says is not used as actually marked as the transfer the emergency room, which is how most people who are not visitors but are actually bringing somebody to the hospital would enter the hospital grounds. The hospital is not a gigantic campus. It's about two tenths of a mile from where the hospital was well catered to where the ice will be located that that frankly, I'm sixty one years old, but I can cover that in about four minutes. So it's not an obscure place there. When I went there this morning, I saw at least two dozen people walking near the facility more than one hundred cars parked next to the facility, I sort cars passing by it. Constantly I work with Central American refugee center on the island, and I can tell you when they were rumors two years ago that I was. Healthcare facilities, people that go. Now whites will be at a healthcare facility. But I don't think this was well thought out by the county executives, and I think it was as as you characterize it earlier as you suggested earlier her simply keeping into the PBA contract negotiations and it by your piece because you could hear from McDermott. They continue to criticize her thank you for your call, very interesting. And now, we know Patrick is an advocate who works with immigrants and not happy with the location of the ice facility on the county hospital grounds. We're almost out of time, but glee Korea, do you expect this to wind up back in court? The reason this is all happening, as you know, is that the New York state appellate court ruled in November that the police in Suffolk County were over-stepping their legal bounds by detaining undocumented immigrants beyond time served just so ice could come and pick them up for deportation..
