"It is a truism of foreign military adventures that getting one troupe. Getting one's troops out rather can be at least as big a challenge as sending them in.

Political chaos in afghanistan. Americans won't care that much about that. There are those within the political and diplomatic establishment. Who will care deeply. But the average american won't care that much. Afghanistan is just too far removed but if the al qaeda and taliban are able to re form the country as a terror basing site An effect terror attacks on american soil.

Chang. Congress may be on the verge of a major overhaul of the criminal Justice system. And it seems to go against President Trump's tough talk on crime. A bipartisan group of lawmakers is hoping to push the Bill across the finish line as they return for the upcoming lame duck session, the president weighed in on that idea this afternoon Americans from across the political spectrum. Can unite around prison reform legislation that will reduce crime while giving our fellow citizens chance at redemption NPR, national Justice correspondent Carrie Johnson has been following this issue for years and years. Hey, Keri hilson. So this Bill it doesn't exactly seem to gel with President Trump's past rhetoric about upholding law and order just explain this to me how does being more lenient on some drug sentences fit in with his whole tough on crime talk inside the White House, the president's son-in-law Jared Kushner has made sentencing in prison reform a top priority. He has a personal connection because his father served prison time, right? Jared Kushner's arranged roundtables for President Trump to get him used to the idea. Now, the former attorney general Jeff Sessions was a staunch opponent of leniency for drug criminals. But remember Jeff Sessions was forced down last week at Justice, and his replacement acting attorney general Matt Whitaker doesn't seem to have trouble. With this proposal over the weekend, though, another important voice chimed in the fraternal order of police. They're the biggest law enforcement union, the F O P endorsed Donald Trump during the campaign, and they have a lot of clout. Okay. So that opened the door even wider. I mean, there's been so much back and forth between lawmakers on this Bill. Can you just catch us up for a moment? What exactly is inside this legislation? Now, there's a lot of language about making education and Dr training available to violent prisoners and giving them a chance to earn credits to get out sooner. That idea was not controversial. But this deal also includes some changes to criminal penalties. Here's what we know. So far it'll help inmates who were punished under an old law that gave them harsher sentences for crack cocaine rather than powder cocaine that law hit the African American community, very hard disproportionally. Those people will be allowed to go back and ask just to let them out of prison and moving forward for new defendants. This plan would also reduce some mandatory minimum sentences and. Give more power to judges to use their discretion. So what's been the reaction to this Bill? So far, I reached out to Holly Harris, she's executive director of the Justice Atkin network, which lobbied for changes to the Justice system. Here's what she had to say. We're very hopeful that this Bill will also lead to two second chances for so many individuals who need treatment who who really want to get job training who want to return to society support their families find good jobs improve their education secure adequate housing now. Holly Harrison, she knows a lot of people got discouraged when nothing happened in congress during the Obama years, but she says Senator Chuck Grassley Republican Senator dick Durbin democrat really held together and help push this plan the groups fan the group named families against mandatory minimums also supports the proposal. They point out more than nine and ten people in federal prison eventually returned to the community. So it just makes sense to provide more options for them in prison importantly, the Senate majority leader. Her Mitch McConnell has been lukewarm about this idea for a long time earlier today, he said the Senate has a lot to do this year appropriations and the farm Bill, but this show of support today from President Trump may help move Justice reform higher up on the list that the things that the Senate will do before they break, I guess, we'll just have to wait and see NPR's national Justice. Correspondent Carrie Johnson. Thanks kerry. My pleasure. Another story line that came out of the midterm elections is about voter frustration with the way districts are drawn in most states politicians draw the lines that determine where you vote and that can lead to partisan gerrymandering drawing, the lines to favor a certain party last week voters in Michigan and Colorado approved measures that take redistricting out of the hands of politicians and put that task in the hands of independent commissions to find out more about how these conditions work. We are speaking now with Michael Lee, he's with the Brennan center for Justice in New York. Welcome. Thank you for having me all these ballot measures were. Seeing is this a sign that there is growing interest in redistricting reform in rolling back during Mandarin. Absolutely. There's been more energy around this issue than any time that I can remember there if you add Ohio where a measure passed in may have been five measures on the ballot and four or five of them. We'll have passed this year, and there's never been energy like that. And is this growing energy because the twenty twenty cents is is coming up is that why I think the energy around. This issue comes from the fact that people both Democrats and Republicans and people who bar affiliated with either party increasingly understand that something is broken in our democracy. And that the way that minds are drawn have a big part to do with that and a few years ago. This issue resonated with nobody in polling, you it didn't move odors one way or the other than I think people have been really frustrated with the way that they were drawn this decade. And I think a lot of people are looking forward to new ways of doing it in the future. And some of those new ways are for states to redraw district lines by using. What's called these independent commissions? Can you tell us how these missions work? Well, they vary a bit. But the general idea is that you select people through a process, it's very do selecting a jury there's a screening process or not picked by lawmakers, and then they get to work, and they draw lines of holding lots of public hearings are generally fairly strict transparency requirements around these which is something that doesn't occur right now. Where lawmakers all the maps, and then they have to pass it on a bipartisan basis in that itself. Ensures that the maps are going to be fair because you have to compromise it for us you fail, and there are some states that have been using independent commissions for years. Now do voters seem to be happy with the results. Absolutely. I mean there had been virgins on commissions in relatively small states like Montana, and I'd Aho before but California adopted commission for the most recent mount drying process, and it's a large demographically complicated state, and the result is much more competition. Much more compact districts districts. Do a better job of keeping communities together. And that produce more wins by women by people of color by people who don't have access to big money and a lot of that is due to the way that the maps are drawn and they're drawn much more fairly. Well, a lot of those outcomes that you're citing would seem to favor Democrats are Republicans fighting some of these changes. Well, it's favored Democrats recently. But the maps are drawn, and and you can measure this. I if Republicans start to do better if they figure out how to message to voters if they start to figure out how to win votes from people of color or for younger voters,.

"Ziprecruiter, the smartest way to hire. While visiting the US Mexico border today Defense Secretary, Jim Mattis, urged servicemembers to ignore the news and stay focused on their mission. But it is difficult to escape the growing questions about their mission, including were they sent to the border for purely political reasons and since the election, what happened to all of President Trump's urgent warnings about a migrant caravan invasion. He hasn't tweeted the word caravan since the midterms compared to forty five mentions in the three weeks before election day. Let's bring in Barbara Starr at the Pentagon Barbara in the weeks before the election, the president painted a stark picture, he sent thousands of potentially armed troops to the border kind of suggesting he was doing. So to fend off an invasion of dangerous migrants. What's actually going on on the ground down there? Well, what's coming on on the ground today where the secretary of defense was not a migrant to be seen no price tag attached to this mission? And jay. That's just the beginning of some of the questions. Defense Secretary James Mattis checking up on the troops at the bare bones military camp on the Texas border with Mexico. Fifty nine hundred troops deployed to help stop caravans migrants. Still hundreds of miles from the US Mexico border, which President Trump has warned about you look at what's marching up. That's an invasion. That's not that's an invasion, but on the ground. The reality is different Mattis reiterating, the military will not be confronting the migrants. If he defended the mission feel moral of ethical mission toward our mortar patrolman thirteen hundred of those troops in Texas, largely tasked with putting concertina wire without weapons in hand part of their orders to barricade the Texas border where migrants coming north may try to cross the troop doing that. Obviously are not armed. They don't need their weapons. The engineer delayed the part wire the soldiers marines doing net or what? Overwatch by MP's who are armed Mattis will aware of the political firestorm surrounding the deployment now telling American forces to ignore the news media, they're all sorts of stuff in the news that sort of thing you discount paid on what your company commander. You're tying commander killed. If you read all that stuff. But the question of President Trump's political motivation for sending troops is not going away. From October sixteenth to November, six midterm election day, forty five tweets mentioning the border, but since then zero I think that strengthens the argument by those who believe that this was a politically motivated mission in the first place for summer moment. Madison fisting there is precedent for forces on the border actually, citing punch via the famed Mexican revolutionary leader. I think many of you where the printed Wilson a hundred years ago a little over one hundred years ago, deployed the US stormy to the southwest border. That's over a century ago. The threat thin, which punctual Via's troop a revolutionary rating across the border into the United States, New Mexico. Nineteen sixty the difference being punch Avia led a group of revolutionaries. With guns while the current group of migrants includes men women and children who are mostly escaping violence in their own countries. One shoulder asked Mattis at they're all going to have to go back and pick up all that concertina wire they late. He did not have an answer for that. There is no answer. How many troops have any will make it home for thanksgiving? But the secretary of defense talking about punch Avia an incident on that border back in one thousand nine hundred sixteen Jake, all right? Barbara Starr at the Pentagon. Thanks so much take a listen again to something secretary Mattis said today about the mission. We were asked why the Fikri Terry due to the number of coming this way, defend them. Whether that means it means that people do all the worst. We're standing behind a confidence builder. And that sort of thing. So the department of homeland security's in charge and the customs and border patrol and presumably other agencies are there, providing the security and the troops. Are there is a confidence builder? What does it? Yeah. I didn't know that. That's what American troops. Did. I fought, you know. And if you listen to what the president was saying, he was saying this was an invasion, and they would be there men be armed and presumably he said that they would be shooting on some of these folks if they threw walks, I, you know, I not a military person..
