The 1918 Spanish Flu: Fact vs. Fiction
"This is Oscar Fernandes and today on the show, we put the spotlight on Texas to discuss the fact versus fiction of the Spanish flu pandemic of nineteen eighteen and to follow up on the one year anniversary of the mass shooting in El Paso Texas, the largest mass shooting targeted against Latinos, and so there's no need for a long introduction today on the show because our guest today has a lot to say on how the US in various ways is repeating history in its poor response to the pandemic. The scapegoating of others who have no control of the pandemic and which community ultimately praise the costs for the pandemic and so with us on the show today is w Dorado Romo. He's a researcher and the author of a ringside seat to revolution and underground cultural history of El Paso, and is which is available on single prosperous that we joins us today to combat to show W doral Romo. Thank you so much. Is Good to have you with us once again and doesn't probably no way of escaping any news whatsoever as it pertains to the current. Co Ed nineteen pandemic. You know it's affected almost every corner of society both here in the US and abroad. But one thing that's been cited as a frame of reference of valuable one, I would say is the Spanish flu pandemic of nineteen eighteen. Now in recent weeks, politicians and media people have stated that the US has not seen anything like the in pandemic since the Spanish flu of nineteen eighteen. Even you know Donald Trump and self has been cited Spanish flu in his own ignorant ways. I would I would say. But when reasons I want to talk to you was because this soon is the Spanish flu pandemic came up in mainstream media and the first thing that came to mind was Our discussion that we had last year with regards to the bath riots and it gives me the feeling that there's some things missing as it pertains to Race River Garson and the narrative of the Spanish flu pandemic. So a want to know based on what you've seen this far when people sight to space Lou, what do you feel is missing in this important narrative? I think you hit it on the nail. The idea that the pandemic was just a problem of perhaps Just, a a medical problem is something that's usually citing it by these media reports but. Raised and war have a huge part to play in in this. So called Spanish food and I think one of the things that has. Not Been. Looked into as much as. A huge role that the United States played in this called Spanish who I mean I I, I would call it the American sloop because they didn't start in Spain. It actually most of the evidence that we have historically the first official report. Of the Spanish flu was from Pasco County, council. And it was in a in a US military camp. Ford Riley canceled that it I broke out now there's other theories but most of the evidence points to that so this is Not so much the Spanish food at the American flu and I think that has been something that has not been as deeply investigated in many of these. Reports. So the question has to be asked, how did the Spanish flu get its name? If it was actually based here in Kansas as he said. Well. During. World War One, it was censorship. So the when I broke out in March of nineteen eighteen and one military cab. There was hardly anything written about it. It was actually A. A. Cook at the base of contract. And within. A few days there were hundreds of US soldiers? That, That were hit that that excel stake as Devo them died. From the flu. So the reason that is called a Spanish food is because Spain was a neutral country. So they were able to report. The fact that even even some of the most prominent. political figures from Spain were infected contractors to flu. So the name stuck that was the first. Was the first country where there was actually uncensored reporting about the flu to the main stuff but it was. It's also I think this idea of thickness. Always comes from the other side. The His what would you call it? The other association of of disease. You know the. Americans in the very beginning they and some of them playing some of the news sources would blame on the German thinking that it was a form of bacteriological warfare. Germans also had it. And they blamed it on the Russians they call it the the Russian has the Russians blamed on the Chinese everybody blamed on on on someone else the white South Africans called the the copy of. The Black Man Species? So I. Think this is part of. Stigmatization of the other using DC. To kind of Yeah. To stigmatize other racists, other nationality has always been kind of a universal part of this. Funny enough. Even back in nineteen. A lot of the banish medical. So rotation. Would pointed out the unfairness calling the Spanish flu they knew that it had not originated there

You've ever been to war with disposing of bodies, Israelis. You don't have to dig to her dirt. You're digging through saying. Just across the bridge from El Paso Texas, hundreds of young women have been tanning up dead in Juarez Mexico. Many artists covered in mass graves. Some have strange symbols coughed. Some. have their hands bound with shoelaces? And? Everyone from the families of the victims to the United States. FBI has tried to uncover who is behind these crimes. But one thing is clear. The crimes are connected. They're not just random victims. The women were picked. They were selected I mean there could be an abduction in broad daylight. No one saw it. No one talked about it. These are like ghosts. The numbers started to rise, and then a lot of theories were floated up the gangs serial murder. The cartels organ traffickers the possibility of some sort of strange devil worship. It's been fifteen years since I first heard about these murders, and I've been haunted ever since. How is it possible? These crimes remain unsolved on journey to find out we talk to victims, families FBI agents and a psychologist who claims the new one of the culprits. We visit, the site of one of the mass graves and traveled to a dangerous part downtown. Where many of the women disappeared? I Voloshin, I'm one of the hosts of Forgotten Women of Juarez.

Even really investigated by authorities and then go into why you felt it was important to do. The podcast I first started working on this podcast of several trips to the Texas Mexico border specifically El Paso Texas and In Mexico. And it took me several trips before I learned something that everybody in the region knows, which is that? Since the early nineteen nineties, hundreds of women have turned up dead in Horace, and many of them met incredibly brutal fates, which was evident from that bodies when they were discovered. That been five mass graves of Women Discovering Juarez since nineteen ninety five. And yet, all of this was happening right across the border from one of America's safest cities, a prosperous suburban Texans city, and so I was just very curious. How could this be happening? How could the crimes not be solved? And it ended up being this journey with Monica that open up. All kinds of other questions particularly learn things like the FBI had tried to solve the crimes, not once not twice, but three times. When the mass grave was discovered, and suspects confessed harder Crawford was the FBI special agent in charge of El Paso. Is Office was just a few miles away from the site. The mass grave and he taken a special interest in the murders of women in Juarez and was following this case closely as a potential breakthrough. You could sense that the pressure was mounting. Political pressure public pressure international pressure. The families and relatives and friends of the disappeared. Women were allowed. Those women would hold use. Mourning the deaths and George attention to that. That was huge. There was all kinds of attention from the international press. People like Jennifer Lopez. Eve ensler involved and yet these crimes remain stubbornly unsolved wasn't clear. Who was killing these hundreds of women, and why and it was a story of vulnerability, but also a story of the deep paradox irony of the border that many of these women were working in factories, which were American owned could see across the border into a Passo a city of. A Fred safety enormous safety by comparison and that Alpes Owens could see back into war as many of them had relatives there many of them. Have Friends there and yet. Those this seeming inability to do anything and that struck me as something which was I had to know more

"Paso Texas in Dayton Ohio southern California congressman Adam Schiff who's chairman of the house permanent select committee on intelligence you noticed a bill that would create a federal domestic terrorism crime to talk more about what's in the bill the congressman paid a visit to the case CBS studios and spoke with anchors Jeff bell and Patty rising I was very surprised to learn that there are no criminal penalties for domestic terrorists you know I think most people are surprised by that and what prosecutors and the FBI have done instead is to try to often shoe horn these terrible acts of mass violence into other categories either use a murder statute or a hate crime statute or a weapons charge this new bill would essentially put domestic terror on the same footing as international terror and there is a statute that prohibits and penalizes those who engage in say isis or al Qaeda inspired terror but we should be devoting the same resources to this problem because frankly Americans on American soil now are more likely to die at the hands of a domestic terrorist who is motivated by some hateful ideology increasingly a white supremacist ideology than they are someone acting on the inspiration of isis or al Qaeda historically speaking what has been the push back for doing this or not doing this well I think a concern over how the statute might be abused and one of the things that we did in there we take narrowly tailoring this bill as we did not mimic for example the section in the international terrorism section a law that allows you to designate organizations as terrorist organizations also there's no authority for that in this bill we don't want to create a list of domestic terror organizations but I think it is important to establish both as a moral matter that these these are just as repugnant as terror acts inspired by international organizations but also make sure that we devote the resources to this problem that prosecutors have the tools of the FBI can initiate investigations at an early stage one of the things you'll be able to do one of the statute which is currently not available that is go after those who provide material support to those who would commit acts of domestic terror so those who are stockpiling weapons for someone who might commit one of these acts so hopefully this will elevate our resources our attention at this growing horror what do you think the chances are passage well there is bipartisan support for the idea of a domestic terrorism prohibition but there is I think concern about a particularly with a trump administration is just so much well play skepticism about providing ministration any new tool will have to overcome that but it's my hope that we can press forward and that we're not going to be reliant on waiting for some other tragedy to motivate us to do what needs to be done covers but I suspect he would be the first to say that this alone is not going to solve the bigger issue this is a part of a much bigger response that you would like to see talk about some of those other components well that's exactly right and is certainly another big piece of this is taking away the means the way that domestic terrorist used to kill so many people and that is access to assault weapons access to extended ammunition clips access to firearms without a background check and you know it's often said with respect to either this domestic terrorism law or an assault weapons ban or any other specific bill that that one bill won't solve every crime or this crime would not have been solved by that bill that is not excuse for inaction that is congressman Adam Schiff KCBS news time seven twenty five sponsored by super micro into which is building a better bank look like it starts with building Capital One cafes.

"Live from el Paso Texas Clayton good evening Jim good evening and a tele still the latest there well tell you what today was a very emotional day for a lot of people in el Paso a lot of information learned today not everything that people are wanting to know is been released at this point but we do have more information from authorities as well the identities of all of the victims was released several hours ago to we're learning that there were victims from three different countries ranging in age from fifteen to ninety years old so all the way for my teenagers to adults to the elderly they're even babies that were injured in the shooting as well the the circumstances surrounding the shootings are sure that there's a much just second guessing looking back in in retrospect did appear that there was anything that could have been done to have prevented this at the scene well you know the interesting thing about this is it was such a crowded seen that I don't think there was they were anywhere between fifteen hundred and three thousand people in or around that Walmart when the shooting took place this is the tenth most popular Walmart in the United States in that's from a sales standpoint not popularity this is the tenth busiest Walmart in the United States of America in a lot of that has to do with its geographic location being here in el Paso it is we see from these horrible numbers in these identities that are released there are a lot of people from Mexico who come over to el Paso to do their shopping that's exactly what we saw on this Saturday there were seven at least seven Mexican nationals killed and three others hurt in the shooting the situation with the thirty one day and I know that that is an increase either others wounded who are considered in danger of of of of dying I'm not sure how how seriously wounded are those who were were not killed on the scene yeah so going into today there were twenty people that had been killed in the el Paso shooting to more people tragically passed away early this morning making at number twenty two and then you get to thirty one from the nine in Dayton so we did have an increased today with that death toll in el Paso going from twenty to twenty two there are fifteen people still hospitalized two of those are critical in as we learn today you just never know and so there's people here in el Paso praying there people sending out their thoughts there is a memorial that when I went out to the scene this morning it wasn't small but it was decent sized now it stretches me almost an entire block with candles with flowers it's it'd been a site where people are coming throughout the day today to express their to express their emotions and be with one another what more do we know about the shooter well we learned a little bit more about him today we know that he drove just over six hundred miles and it took him anywhere between eleven and twelve hours this is according to a Paso police to get from the Dallas area to el Paso you know a lot of people think it Dallas and Paso Texas so it's got to be somewhat close actually passes closer to Los Angeles than it is to Dallas and so that also has a lot to do with how our stories are investigating this Y. el Paso this manifesto that is linked to the shooter talked about Hispanic invasion it had a hateful language towards Hispanics and so it's believed that he may have came here to el Paso for that reason a city with more than eighty percent of its population Hispanic so we're learning that he traveled all the way here in twelve hours when he got here police say he was lost in a neighborhood ended up at the Walmart where you wanted to get something to eat police say he did eat inside that Walmart just moments before he opened fire all right thank you very much played level reporting live from el Paso Texas and now Westwood One news correspondent Jerry bowed lander live from Dayton Ohio the scene of the other week and shooting a good evening Gerry good evening things here are you know there are a lot of question marks police still have not yet determined a motive for the shooting here and they really are perplexed about the death of the shooters sister she was one of the nine who was killed and there are questions about whether or not he targeted her or not and those are questions they hope to have answers to from the person who was with Mr bats and his sister when they arrived at the entertainment district before they separated so that those are two threads of the investigations that are ongoing the the circumstances there the the presence of the sister and I believe her her boyfriend does seem certainly far from from even potentially coincidental are we at all sure of the motive involved in Dayton no we know that Conor bets his sister and this other gentleman went to the entertainment district together and then they separated now we don't really have a time line after that we do know that Connor bats killed a person or shot you know shot and killed a person in an alley way then turned on to the busy street and started firing the police chief here says it's hard to believe that he would shoot his sister but you know how would he not know that it's a sister could you take her out of a crowd since you know it was one o'clock in the morning was she targeted we just don't know and the question is can the man who was wounded in this incident give police some information when they separated were they angry was there an incident that might have prompted him to stalk off and go get a weapon we just don't know the police do say that they do not think that that's a sister and this man who was with her new about the weapons that were in the car alright Doug thank you very much that

"The new yorker he's in paso texas where he spent the past couple of weeks reporting on the crisis at the border he's interviewed parents in detention who were separated from their children after crossing the border illegally some of these parents don't even know where their children are being held listener has also been writing about the trump administration's confusing and shifting immigration policies the lack of coordination between the different departments enforcing those policies and the chaos this created jonathan blitzer welcome back to fresh air let's start with the new ruling by a federal judge in california stopping the trump administration from separating children from their parents at the border and ordering that all families already separated be reunited within thirty days tell us what you think are the most important aspects of that decision i think the decision sends an obviously important message of criticism of the government's policy the family separation policy zero zerotolerance policy which gave rise to to the family separations at the border the thing that strikes me and that i think strikes anyone else out in the field the moment is that it's entirely unclear whether or not the government can comply with this order so for the for the judge to say we want the government to be able to reunite families within thirty days and to give these specific timeframes for the government to do this would basically presuppose that the government knows where all of these separated children are would have the means to connect these children with their pal it's and i actually don't think any of that is clear i think the government is pretty illequipped right now to affects you wait these reunifications and so it really remains to be seen whether or not the terms of this federal order this judge's order can actually be met an executed by the government itself ahead of health and human services alex as our told senators on tuesday that he could find any child separated from their migrant parents quote within seconds he said there is no reason why any parent would not know where their child is located he said that within key strokes within seconds he could find any child is up in your experience like talking with people who have crossed the border illegally and want to know where their children are in want to be able to talk with them that's definitely not been my experience as far as i can tell that is simply wrong for a number of reasons i mean for one thing you talk to parents who are in detention who have been in detention in some cases for more than just several weeks but in fact for a few months who have had no contact were extremely limited contact with their children so anecdotally that is what the secretary says is wrong but but also the fact it's a little bit misleading even how he's framed that because basically what happened is this you have parents who have been handled through a separate kind of branch of the federal bureaucracy you have parents who were first charged with a crime who were held in the custody of us marshals pending a determination of whether or not they were guilty of that crime of crossing the border illegally then when they're done with that process they go into immigration detention where they're held oftentimes indefinitely while they wait for an asylum claim to be heard that's there in one there's sort of siphoned off to one side of the federal bureaucracy their kids aren't an entire fairly different area their kids are under the care of the department of health and human services and so there isn't any coordination between those two different branches of government so for the secretary of the department of health and human services to say okay well we know where every kid is doesn't really give us any of the meaningful information that parents are asking about which is okay how do i connect my case to the case of my kid the government has all of these kids in its custody but the parents are completely disconnected from them and the secretary of the department of health and human services doesn't have any truck with the agencies involved in detaining the parents of these kids so if the agency has got together and said let's coordinate with they have the means to do it i think whether or not the government can actually re reunify families boils down to a question of political will i think if the government were seriously interested in reuniting parents and kids it could probably bring that about one of the problems.
