"To call it autocratic would be an understatement then I asked color There is no one else who will be chosen as president They say things are going to get horrible Even worse than they are now Carla ending that report from will grant Well Daniel Ortega did make an appearance a couple of hours ago after casting his ballot in the capital Managua He hailed today's vote and accused the opposition and the United States of a plot to force him from power Today we're defying those who promote terrorism Finance terrorism and finance war Those who've sewn terror Death the destruction of the economy of health centers and of schools Those who have conspired and continue to conspire They are the ones sewing death sowing hatred sewing terror No matter what clothes they're wearing they are demons Demons that don't want peace that don't want tranquility for our country So beyond dismissing the legitimacy of today's election how is the outside world reacting to events in Nicaragua The U.S. Congress has passed a piece of legislation this week called the renacer act designed to sanction people involved with human rights abuses and the obstruction of free elections But will it make a difference Bianca Jagger is from Nicaragua She is a human rights defender and president of the Bianca Jagger human rights foundation How does she view today's election I would describe it as an electoral force as a fraudulent election Everyone that has a voice is calling the people of Nicaragua not to be complicit on this mockery of Daniel Ortega and Rosario Murillo and to stay home We are though aware that they will force all the people that work for the government to vote and to show that they have done it and to go with their families As of now last night they were putting in jail political leaders and even journalists It is a foregone conclusion that Daniel Ortega will be reelected How should the outside world those who care about democracy in Nicaragua deal with that Well I think that the international community has already been very vocal The statements made by the U.S. government on Friday where they're calling these already not only a farce But they are denouncing these elections or I don't like to call them elections and they are getting prepared to move sanctions on after the approval of the Renoir act I think that we will see the reaction from the U.S. I have no doubt that governments throughout the world will come out and declare legitimate the farce that is taking place in Nicaragua And I do hope that the governments in Latin America that the OAS will be as clear about what is taking place in Nicaragua Was there point an opportunity for the opposition to unite perhaps around one candidate might that have made a difference No I think that that would be cruel to say that That was happening at the time when they were put in jail In fact with any Ortega has done is that he has managed to unite the opposition in jail You will say to me well what's that good for nicor And I think that if there had been allowed some of these political candidates to unite they could have no doubt and the people of Nicaragua have no doubt that they could have won this election against this brutal dictatorship This is a man who survived of course the war against the contras backed by the United States This is someone who has proved pretty ruthless as you've outlined in getting rid of internal opponents The external pressure is that going to make a difference or will it have to be in some form internal There are no eternal dictators They all ultimately fall and have to hopefully in this case be accountable before justice Bianca Jagger human rights defender from Nicaragua Although the Biden administration has condemned the election today as a sham and accused Daniel Ortega of trying to establish an authoritarian dynasty doctor Paul Angelo is a fellow for Latin American studies at the U.S. based think tank the council on foreign relations I asked him what is the United States actually doing about this Well the Biden administration has applied targeted sanctions and revoked visas for members of the regime were close affiliates of the regime And today the State Department has indicated that it sees the sham elections as consolidation of a dictatorship that has been a decade in some change in the making that I suspect that the Biden administration will deliver on more sanctions particularly targeted economic and diplomatic sanctions Are they likely to have any more impact than the current ones have had This contest is high priority for Biden simply because it comes up against two of President Biden's top foreign policy priorities anti corruption and democracy promotion However I should note that this is also an inherited crisis that has been more than a decade in the making And it's not a place where U.S. actions will necessarily shift regime calculations significantly I think it will inevitably become a greater priority for the United States as the humanitarian situation deteriorating the migration situation indicator versus this year alone in the first 9 months of 2021 We've seen a record number of Nicaraguans apprehended at the U.S. Mexico border So it's that rather than the crashing of descent in opposition which is likely to focus mines This past week the House of Representatives passed the Rana sera act with strong bipartisan support which encourages an expansion of sanctions on sending east to political operators in Nicaragua increased coordination between Europe Canada and the United States on the application of sanctions and in expanded oversight of the U.S. trade relationship with Nicaragua including a review of Nicaragua's participation in kafta However the real hesitation there on part of policymakers in Washington is that if the United States is to reduce its economic engagement with Nicaragua would only serve to worsen the humanitarian situation which would further induce greater migration to the United States It sounds like it's looking at a catch 22 situation Absolutely And I think the Biden administration is particularly cognizant of the way in which the sanctions imposed against similar governments be the Cuba or Venezuela have really tied the U.S. government's hands and its ability to engage or support democratic actors on the ground In Venezuela in recent times is a good example isn't it of not just America Plenty of actors in Europe and elsewhere that supported the opposition candidate as and still recognize him as the legitimate president But that doesn't seem to be making a difference on the ground In a situation in Venezuela there for a while there wasn't a lot of coherence between what the United States was doing and what the European was doing in terms of how quickly both entities wanted to escalate sanctions against the Maduro regime I think knowing that background the U.S. government is engaging more cautiously in Nicaragua In the short term though is Daniel Ortega relatively safe in his position I'm going to take his incredibly safe in his position simply because he has jailed all of his opposition has silenced civil society is refusing to allow international reporters to access an economic to observe the elections And notably continues to be supported by Moscow which as we know in the situation in the scenario in Venezuela Russian and Chinese support for Maduro has extended a lifeline to that regime I was doctor Paul Angelo fellow for Latin America studies at the council on foreign relations in the United States just to remind.

But i'm gonna take the prerogative in pitch some questions so paul. I'm going to start with you. 'cause you're the policy wonk and i'm going to ask a policy whitish question of you. So why is there. Such a surge and the sturge is enormous with biden of course but it predates biden Just a few recent stats Troll agents apprehended million people in the first time months of the fiscal year which is an enormous number people nearly fifty six thousand family members and fifteen thousand unaccompanied minors in june alone. Those is a really big numbers. But it's not just all by despite what president trump would suggest you. What's you know. What's the push factor here star base carla reader for the opportunity to join all of you. Today i'm looking forward to hearing from our local journalists. Seen that so many of you have your finger on the pulse of the border And working in washington dc. So i don't get down to the border as much as i'd like your perspectives. And it's also real be on analyst. I so you turning our attention to the border of course administration the united states in among the first foreign domestic policy challenges that the vita ministration faced was on the migration fronts for me is for people who have been watching the order. Like many of you isn't surprising for anyone who's been paying attention to the border. In recent years we have all predicted. This and there are a handful reasons that stand oxley from geico. The first is that this surge is a natural evolution of ongoing trend. Look over the past decade. The the euro with the highest spike in migrant apprehensions of the. Us was twenty nineteen and this is when president. Trump's anti-immigrant rhetoric maverick protection protocols The safe third country agreement with guatemala. The assem cooperation agreements with hunters and a salvador. Were all in full swing. Despite all of those measures migration was at a tenure peak in two thousand nineteen twenty twenty twenty with the pandemic. We saw a bit of a recreate for the us. Government due to club in nineteen restrictions on movement that were enclosed in mexico and central america wants national governments reopened. Their orders all that up demographic pressure was going to result inevitably increase in migration. Second thing i would say is that the trump administration very much in the ball down the court. Same corporation agreements for instance were more symbolic than substantive places like one hundred now. Salvador never had robust asylum systems. Nor do they have the resources or interested in developing them and so it was more symbolic measure than it was when it was actually going to push asylum applicants to the northern triangle a rather than to mexico or the united states likewise we always see an uptake migration at the beginning of a calendar year due to seasonal labor and whether patterns at similarly on the eve of joe biden's election The eve of joe biden's inauguration. We had more than forty two thousand Asylum applicants are candidates camped out on the mexican side of the border. Due to programs like mine protection protocols in meter and so inevitably the by administration's decision to reactivate are asylum system to bring the us in compliance with its international humanitarian legal obligations was inevitably going more asylum requests and then there are other things particularly Conditions we call root causes migration in central america. That have been fuelling. Migration from that region in southern mexico For much of the past decade. Most immediately i would say the back-to-back category five and category for hurricanes in the fall which killed off one hundred four thousand livestock. Ninety percent of honduras is being in corn crops in an economy that is largely subsistence in rural spaces. Fueled migration but were over what we're seeing in central. America is acceleration of democratic back slightly. And i think if we look to wear central america was even five years ago. There was there. there is still a lot more. Hope for the region There were you know. The anti-corruption crusade was in full. Swing in places like guatemala honduras. during the trump administration. A lot of those priorities took a back seat to you for us. Policy in latin america and some not worth seeing a real sense of malays or frustration that these are political systems in economies at that no longer or don't take into account needs of their imple- and missile precisely what is recent surge migration that's All very cheery. Thank you all for starting off dan to continue on with the policy perspective so president biden ran promising to address trump. The trump administration Frankly abusive immigration policies separation of families. Denial silom rights which are under international. Long is constant demonization of immigrants..

I think right now blur afraid to go back out on the streets. I think people are focused on the detentions who has been detained.

July eleventh was an unprecedented historic bank cuba in something that historians will be talking about for decades in much. The same way that we talk about the mariel boatlift Nineteen ninety four and it was unprecedented display of displeasure on an island.
