This recommendation was approved by the Arizona Vaccine and Antiviral Prioritization Advisory Committee, which is intended to protect those who are most at risk for severe outcomes due to Cove in 19.

So if you look at the map of Arizona, the counties that Aaron Black are still in phase one A. So does our healthcare providers and our long term care facility, residents and staff. When you look at our darker gray, that's the prioritized phase one be, so that's going to be the face that we just talked about. Currently. We are vaccinating age 75 older. Along with educators and child care and their support staff and our protective services occupations. When we increase to one be that also includes our Sent can keep our society functioning.

As of today, over 232,000 doses of vaccine have been administered statewide. So now we'll move into Arizona's vaccine allocation and administration. Over the next few weeks, A DHS will be working to increase access to vaccine increase the rate of vaccination into streamline communications. So as you look at the vaccine, I'm distribution overview. Arizona currently follows a local Allocator model for vaccine distribution. Our local part partners are the backbone of the vaccine program implementation and know their counties that are no they're partners and their counties the best so our federal partners every week provide our Arizona's allocation to the state. We divide that allocation of based on priorities to our local partners, who then will determine which providers in their local jurisdiction will receive that scene for that week. We collect all of those orders on Ben. We place Arizona's full order for that week, and then the federal government will ship those orders directly to the providers that we have ordered on behalf of as vaccine becomes more and more available. We will no longer need to use this local Allocator model and providers such as pharmacies, community health centers and physician's offices will be able just to directly order vaccine from the manufacturers. So this week we received additional first dose allocations of Fizer, which were distributed again. Toe America and Pima County's All 15 counties received Madonna doses, and so we continued to reserve given the unique storage requirements for our Fizer vaccine. We continue to reserve our Majority vaccine for our local or rural health departments. Um In addition to receiving that first those first doses of visor and Madonna vaccine we have received our second doses so that we can continue vaccinating those that I've already received their first US. And have had that either 21 or 28 Day waiting period. This is Dr Cara Chris State Health director, speaking at the Health Department's covert 19 vaccination rollout. Press briefing on Katie Our news 92 3 FM. So during the week of January, 18th Arizona will have been allocated 803,150 doses total. You can see how that's been allocated across the state. You can see at the bottom where we have prioritized our CDC Long term care facility partnership by providing them with the vaccine that they need to vaccinate our Our staff and residents that are long term care facilities. And then you can also see the number of doses that have gone to the state of Arizona. Um Not all of these doses of the 803 have arrived in Arizona. A number of these doses have been allocated to, um Have been ordered for our county partners and will arrive next week. They We anticipate that with the federal holiday. Usually they arrive Monday through Wednesday. We anticipate that they will arrive Tuesday through Friday of next week. So we continue to add additional sites for vaccine administration, So we have initial phase one and phase one B vaccination sites throughout the state. We have over 200 vaccination sites on our website. We also have activated the second phase of the CDC pharmacy partnership, which began the week of December. 27th. So we initially prioritized in phase one of that partnership are skilled nursing facilities, which are highest security, long term care facilities. Um As of the end of this week, all of those facilities will have had at least their first visit from CVS or Walgreen's, and they are scheduling appointments to start assisted living facilities throughout the state next week. So as additional state. Um uh, that scene becomes available, We will be adding additional providers we've had over 730 providers on bordered with a DHS and over 800 pharmacies statewide have enrolled in the CDC pharmacy program to provide in store vaccinations. We have talked on each week about the long term care partnership that CDC put together with our pharmacy partners. So our pharmacy partners code into the facility's and vaccinate the staff and residents of that facility. Um as of this week over 140 skilled nursing facilities scheduled to receive vaccinations, and they will begin vaccinating are assisted living and our group homes starting next week. We've got over 2000 facilities enrolled in the federal program where one of the states with the highest number of facilities enrolled, and our goal is to cover approximately 450,000 residents and staff over the next couple of months. So this is part of the infographic that we post each day on our website. If you look you can see by county what phase That county is currently vaccinating. The total vaccines and ministered along with the vaccination rate per 100,000. And so you can see statewide 232,000 vaccines have been administered. Um, This may not include some of the doses that are provided by our tribal Our federal partners is this is pulled out of the States Immunization registry. So to talk about updates and announcements of this week. On Monday, we had a soft launch of the State Farm Stadium Probate 19 vaccination site. So far we've administered over 20,000 vaccinations at that site, and we are averaging apart between 203 100 vaccinations per hour. We have booked tens of thousands of appointments through January 31st and anticipate opening up additional appointments. That will be between February 1st and February 28th. Those appointments will open up on January 19th at 9 A.m.. We're very excited. Because our partners have really made this endeavor possible. It's a whole community partnership. And again, we just want to thank the Department of Emergency and Military Affairs, the Arizona Cardinals and state from Stadium Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona, The Catherine and Ben I. V Foundation. Arizona State University and Walgreens. All of these, these groups are playing a large role at the site on D have made this possible. Way also are very excited about the launch of our second state run of vaccinations site. This will be located at Phoenix Municipal Stadium. We are still looking to see how many doses we will have available for that. For that site, so the number of appointments will depend on the available vaccine again. We're partnering with the Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs and Arizona State University to run this site. Arizona State University currently runs a testing a saliva based testing site at this location and so they will scale up to provide vaccination administration. Again. Registrations for appointments are going to open up Tuesday, January 19th at 9 A.m. for this site. We updated our easy health. Dr. Hobbes Flash find vaccine website with an interactive map. You can go onto the map. It has all of the current locations with vaccine, you can select a sight and a box will pop up that has information about that site and a link to their registration. So not all of them. Not all vaccine providers are utilizing the state's vaccine management system. Some providers air using their own appointments software, but we will link to them whenever we have that information so that it's one stop shopping when you go to our our map. We will continue to update this map with additional vaccination sites as they come. In a couple of other exciting announcements, we have been expanding access. So a DHS activated the CDC retail pharmacy program. This is going to add up to 100 pharmacy stores over the next few weeks. The first pharmacies to come on board in Arizona are gonna be fries, Safeway and Albertsons. And so those will be included on our sites as we get notified, which pharmacies which specific pharmacy locations will have that scene? But they will be on our website and will be another source for those that are eligible to receive vaccine to go get vaccinated when this program becomes fully activated, more than 800 pharmacies will have covert 19 vaccine available in Arizona. We currently have more than 200 vaccination sites on our website that have received vaccine and this includes 45 community health centers as well. So if you are eligible and you receive care at one of our community health centers You could check on our website to see if they have received vaccine. And again just another update on helping our Arizona hospitals. We have been recruiting nurses with a nursing staffing contract here in the state. That's been one of our most successful endeavors. We are very excited. The majority of the nurses are here. When they arrive. They will stay on site for eight weeks with an opportunity to extend that On gesso. As of last week. 348 nurses have started work. We anticipated almost 200 more arriving this week again that We don't necessarily count them until we've heard that they have Arrived in the state and are attending on boarding at their assigned hospital. But we continue to work with our staffing contract to get all of the nurses that we can here in.

Amid surge in cases, Arizona readies new push to slow COVID-19 spread
"Nearly ninety percent of Arizona's I see beds are full Republican Governor Doug Ducey. ducey faces widespread outrage for downplaying the virus, and even obstructing local officials from acquiring masks in June as case numbers began to explode. Do see reverse course and allowed mayors to issue their own virus guidelines under growing pressure, but he resisted calls to pass a statewide mask mandate or reimposes stay at home order, which expired in May with little restriction on the state's reopening. Facing rising numbers June do see ordered bars and gyms to close again, but Arizona residents say the actions are too little too late. The family of a sixty five year old Mexican. American man who died of Covid, nineteen in Phoenix, is accusing Arizona. State officials of being directly responsible for his death in a scathing obituary in the Arizona Republic, the family of Of Mark, Anthony or Keesa wrote quote. His death is due to the carelessness of the politicians who continue to jeopardize the health of Brown bodies through a clear lack of leadership refusal to acknowledge the severity of the crisis and inability and unwillingness to give clear and decisive direction on how to minimize risk. This is or Qisas daughter Kristin an interview with A. Republican. Governor DC's got blood on a fan. He was late to close down the state. He was early to open X and. The manner in which he opened allowing things to go back as normal is, in my opinion, the reason why my dad is being buried today. We'll for more. We're going to Tucson to speak with a local leader. WHO's been standing up to Governor Doug Ducey. That's Mayor Ricky Romero. She is the first Latina and the first woman to be elected mayor of Tucson. She was previously. Tucson city council member for over a decade, the daughter of migrant workers we welcome you to democracy now Mayor Ramiro. Your thoughts on governor Ducey's responsibility. What do you want to see the state? OF ARIZONA DO? And what are you doing in Tucson? Good Morning Amy. Thank you so much for having me this morning. We have been in a state of crisis. Since governor ducey decided to hastily reopen the state. We were in a very good place. Coming to a plateau here in the city of Tucson relocated in Pima County in pima. Cownie, we were seeing twenty twenty four cases a day. It was a plateau now. We are seeing almost three hundred cases a day in Pima County. In a county of million people we. We are we see anywhere from five to twenty ICU beds, which is very very concerning in straining our doctors and nurses at our hospitals. We jumped up in front of Governor Ducey, a few mayors Mayor Gayle from Phoenix. Mayor Evans from flagstaff in myself Joe jumped ahead of the governor to call the stay at home. orders in to close down bars back in March He took our cue few days later, and with his executive order he tied the hands of mayors in cities and towns and county and county health departments throughout the state by preempting us from from doing anything that he wouldn't do. Most recently, he untied the hands of mayors. In counties throughout the state to do mandatory mask ordinances. Throughout the state, but what we have been seeing with Governor Ducey is a microcosm of what has been happening with trump in his federal response to this pandemic, which is tepid, a tepid response a pushback on science and what public health officials recommend that we do. Every day that governor Ducey Wade's. We see three thousand cases in Arizona and. And the crisis continues more lives lost, and so what we have been done doing here in Tucson is basically pushing the governor to do the right thing because it's a very real threat. If we do move ahead in front of him. The state legislature, the Republican controlled state legislature passed a bill about three years ago fourteen eighty seven that if any city does anything, any law that preempts the state that are stayed shared revenue could be pulled from us, and those are millions and millions of dollars. That, we could potentially lose and so in this crisis we see ourselves as mayors. In fear in fear for the lives of our communities in fear of for the inability for us to be able to do anything so, what mayors across Arizona and I have been doing his publicly pressuring the governor to the right thing. The one thing that he could do that could help is do. Is Institute a mandatory mask? Executive Order Statewide and he refuses to even do that.

"But we also need to talk about these regulations at Pima County made code.

This is not right. Business owners need to be able to fight back and stayed Rep mark. Finchem joins me now to talk about how this is going to happen. Good Morning Mark. How you doing man? Good Morning I'm doing just fine. It's Friday yes come on. Man. Let's get let's go. Let's make it happen. Come on I know. It's been a long week researching what was going on with The Pima County order. Yeah what's going on? What are you GONNA do? What are what are what are you going to do this? They said all right. We're going beyond Ducey. Ducey it's ridden in the executive order that there's no what there's no county city anything that can go beyond what he says should happen. State trump's borders pretty clear And in Article Seven of the order. I don't have front of me but basically said look. This is the order. We don't WANNA see anything. That's in excess of that because this has been I mean arguably the the argument for that as this has been well thought out and this is what the state believes is to be done and for those people who may not have gotten civics course. In Highschool counties are the functionary of the state that means that counties by design. Are there to carry out the policies that are laid out by the State both the executive and legislature. So there's this thing called a fourteen eighty seven application. It's name arises from Senate Bill. Fourteen eighty-seven which by the way was run by Andy. Biggs believe it or not Essentially says that you can't violate a state. Law VIOLATE STATE LAW. You place at risk. Your state shared revenue. Now you may recall. The city of Tucson was caught up in a gun destruction program number of years ago. I filed Fourteen eighty seven application and the Arizona. Supreme Court found in a seven. Oh decision That they agreed with me that not only was it constitutional but that the city of of Tucson misbehaved and they had I think it was thirty days to reverse course or they would indeed lose their state shared revenue Myself Vince Lee. Who's senator for a legislative district? Eleven and my seatmate. Burt Roberts Applied to the Arizona Attorney General's Office to file a fourteen eighty seven application The research has been going on for the last several days. That application has now been drafted and sometime. I believe today data be served on the Pima County Board of supervisors. Wow was wondering about that. I was wondering if you guys are going to give a little warning shot to say. Just stop it or we're going to do this but you're going full force and saying we're GONNA give this to you today. Well it's a process so and and you know folks sometimes get frustrated because we don't move we don't appear to be moving fast enough but when when you start talking about things like this you really wanted to make make sure that you know what you're talking about. That's why you do the research you make sure that all the ts across EISER DOT at Before you go Public with something like the so. This has been ongoing for several days since Pima County announced this now as part of the process. They're notification that. Hey You you violated state statutes. And here's what the case that has laid out and this is done through the state attorney general by the way this is not done through the house attorney so they'll have thirty days I believe thirty days To reverse course and if they don't then we go to court and there there are a number of these that have been filed in the past but after the Tucson decision the vast majority of them as soon as they receive a fourteen eighty. Seven notice They reverse course so we can hope that reason will rule. I. I know it's asking a lot I really appreciate the fact. That Allie Miller Supervisor Miller and supervisor Christie Some the wisdom and saying look this. This is pretty clear. It's unnecessary to pile on even more heavy hand of the government on the people who have already been crushed. What are you thinking? And I'm glad that you brought up the chip plant. There's a reason that businesses don't choose to locate to the Metro Tucson Area Miranda. Yes or valley yes to some extent but I wouldn't go crazy about valley. They got they got a Wacko. They gotTa Wacko town manager a Wacko Development Guy. A gutless mayor They don't have much they don't have much. I'll reserve comment for the battle that I'm engaged in right now. So yes oh yeah exactly what trust me. I first hand knowledge of this Now here's the thing mark ventures on canister game seven hundred. I thank you for doing something to fight back against this. This situation where Pima County and and on top of that again. Yeah the chip plant. Nobody even thinks about coming down we have. We have a lot of open space here. You know lot open space in southern Arizona. Lot Open space in Pima County and nobody even thinks about it because nothing. You think anybody wants to deal with Regina Romero chuckle berry or any of these supervisors. There's no chance I think that that is an impediment it's a serious impediment and a you know until we see a change in leadership in Pima County We will continue to see the kind of shenanigans that we're seeing right now. I know statements of of agenda. And and you know I I just don't get it. You know you should have these folks acting to promote our area and instead what we're getting is this non stop just political gamesmanship enough already okay. By the way it only takes the flipping of one of the three seats to a a Republican. And I think some of these shenanigans and I hope so. I hope that there's a I. Yeah we do and I hope that whoever runs for Allie Miller seat doesn't turn out to be a gigantic rhino. That does whatever a big car dealer has to say. Let me just put that out there. that's very important thing to do to do right. They're also My hat interpreted the had to Allie Miller and Mr Christie They both did the right thing. I'm I'm very happy with Their vote on this matter Because again as I said I. This is so superfluous. And it's just another example. Let's put the the heavy hand of government on people and it's it's just unnecessary. I'm glad that you had mark Victor on What a great interview you did. That was super because it. This is an interference in the people's right to exist it is let me ask you this. Mark Ventures on campus seventy just recap. How this thing works you guys are. GonNa you filed for a four hundred eighty seven. And that's GonNa get delivered to the Pima County supervisors today. Is that how that works? Yeah it'll be when whenever the whatever mechanism is used. I believe. There's an official notice mechanism. It would go to the county manager and to the Board of Supervisors. Okay banking okay. They'll look at it and they'll discuss man. We have no way to. Hopefully we've no way to win here. Let's just if they drop it then. Then that's dropped and we're all good right well Yeah I mean they're the county attorney may look at it and say all. I think we should fight this remember. That'll be taxpayer dollars. Fighting against taxpayers. Remember that one. Yeah now I'm not. I'm not broadcasting that I presume that win it's pointed out to them that you are indeed in violation and the full weight of the attorney. General's office will be brought against us. that you one way. Think especially with the the Litany victories that we have in the courts with this kind of thing. You would think that they'd say okay. We're off of this. We would hope yeah. I hope so too. And on a side note mark Because people like to freak out here. I don't know if you saw it or not but Doug Ducey went to lunch apparently with state lawmakers and the he tweeted out pictures and of course is a story in the Arizona Republic and there's panic porn going on on Social Media Ducey and the other lawmakers were not wearing masks and we're not six feet apart when sitting at the table and they're free not didn't get the memo that Masks should be worn by those. Who are ill and those who are taking care of them? That came out of there. You know everybody says act on fact and we need to listen to the experts. Well that's what the CDC said that's what World Health Organization said. The masters are unless you're sick. It's to contain the sick. It's not the interfere with movement of the healthy. So I stopped. I stopped looking at the time ago. 'cause you're right all they. WanNa do is engage in panic porn don voucher Dr Foul. She said that the sixty minutes back at back in March. It doesn't do anything. There's a story about a Dr Russell Blaylock wrote an editorial at technocracy. Techno techno a was this The technology website and he basically said there were seventeen seventeen. The studies analyzed about wearing masks and none of the studies established a conclusive relationship between mask respirator use and protection against influenza infection. Yeah one of the comments that came out of that was A masks do serve A healthy function of reminding you not to touch your face which I thought was an interesting take on it But I think it's true you know well during the period of time that I was wearing a mask because I was told that that was right and proper as I recall. I wasn't touching my face so now that I think about it. It's like yeah okay. That makes a certain amount of sense. But I mean to this this whole. Pandemic pandemic panic. I it's gotten old in the people aren't listening to it anymore. So I end much probably let you know there was a hearing as the house begins to open up again There was a hearing yesterday. Health and Human Services held a hearing on Trying to better understand some statistical information. That's coming out because There is a school of thought that the sticks statistics have been mis-read and misapplied. I'll see about getting that link for you it but it was on. Capitol TV Chairman Nancy Bar to her that now health and Human Services yesterday Great it was a great presentation by a lot of academics and folks are just saying. Hey we need to rethink our response to this. Because there's some things that we've done and that we didn't need to do and some things that we've done that. In retrospect me of actually exacerbated the problem so. I I think that healthy review of what we've done is necessary and for those people who Want to fight that I would say well. Then you're not really interested in science. You're more interested in an agenda. You're right and just so you know just to wrap this up in this story. I'll put this on my facebook page. This neurologist wrote several studies have indeed found significant problems with wearing such a mask. It can vary from headaches to increased area resistance to carbon dioxide accumulation to hypoxia all the way to serious life threatening complications and there are studies backing it up. They actually studied this people wearing ninety five masks all this stuff. It's all there. It's it's insane man but look mark. I appreciate and you've got the studied him out of Spain. Yes right that's important. We need to pay attention to that. Yup Six Six point three percent of people got infected that it was the infection rate of quarantine people versus five point three percent that went to work and live their life. So you stay home you got you got a higher chance of getting sick from the virus It's it's crazy mark. Let me know if you don't mind if you find out anything and I'm sure I'll hear from Allie Miller Anything about Pima County in the supervisory board. What they're going to do when they do get this. Thank you for doing a business. Owner thankful I really appreciate a man have a great weekend brother..

But that up a candidacy dot com and a little bit. You could hear it. He talked about that. He's great second thing. I think you need to know Pima County got you know.

The order of the house arrest will expire tomorrow at eleven fifty nine pm and then Pima County Despite the fact that we got great great great news great news that we are actually a fourteen day downward trajectory of positive tests versus tests positive versus only. Greenlee County has more. We're doing great. They implemented regulations into Code Insane. Ones to make it more troublesome and burdensome for businesses restaurants to do business and I get to the latest on that coming up in just a second third thing I think you need to know is that t USD on zoom call.

Raising Arizona's Profile in the 2020 Conversation
"Hey thank you. So much for getting on Latino rebels radio the day before the Arizona primary. Thank you so much for inviting me. I'm happy to hear all right. So listen obviously. The Global Pandemic Cove in nineteen is played an issue in disrupting just the world and the United States and states. Where you are in Tucson. There's a primary tomorrow the mood out there. What are people saying? What are people going to vote like? What what are people saying about all this? You know I I am almost concern. At how normal everyone is I think a little bit of what other people have experienced with shopping. A little bit too much but in general. I'm I'm kind of amazed at how normal everyone is moving about their days about their routines Which is I? Don't know worrisome. I would say yeah so. Are You thinking well let me ask? You should should people be voting tomorrow. Or what do you think or what I mean. I always tough. I know it's tough because you you you do this you. Your job is to get people to get politically engaged. Yeah and you do a great job and we'll talk about that a little bit but we'd try. Yeah like right now. How are you feeling like seriously people no I? I have to ask myself that question because I have to vote. I have in turn in my balance. But there's a couple of things that are giving me hope in in the or certainty in in the safety of people are going to one as we have a huge number of voters here in our state that vote by what we call there early permanent early violently so you get a balloting your mail and then you just go drop it off so I think that the fact that we have a really. Big percentage of voters and especially voters of color Because of the efforts of grassroots organizations that have put in them on those slaves that they rate of contact or then touching other things in the polling place is much more limited. You just have to go in and drop off your ballot. I am also following very closely. All of the different information that we're getting from Monica and from Pima County so our state in general just have like twelve confirmed cases of the corona virus. And it doesn't seem like there's a certain Epicenter as you might experience. It's not a hot spot right exactly. I'm in I'm in Boston. I'm in the Boston area. You know Doodo media's in New York like we all went home. We're all working from home and like restaurants are shutting down so. I see what you're saying doesn't mean that people shouldn't take precautions rain but it means that they're the mood is different and the level of of high alertness is different Which I think it's also gonNA play on what we're going to see which I'm expecting that we're gonNA see pretty consistent voter turnout to what we signed. Two Thousand Sixteen if not above that so basically if people do go vote out tomorrow. There's going to be social distancing there's GonNa be ways to keep it a safe as possible but it still like. No one knows right you. You're we right now can happen in the next twelve hours in the United States and low so with that said I don't want to. This is the problem as well. Obviously it is. It is a very important story it is a story that is impacting the world But there's a part of me being a human being a journalist to be like the history of Arizona's people have been working hard and I wanted to give you an opportunity to sort of give me an overview of that work that has been put into Arizona for this election cycle. Because I do think. Obviously it's getting. I mean it's going to get a lot of stuff going to get loss right now. At least I want to record a little history so maybe maybe people listen to it tonight or tomorrow. Or when they're working remotely or socially distancing and maybe they'll learn something about Arizona because I do think it's changed a lot so yeah opportunity to sort of like educate people about what they have gotten wrong about Arizona recently. Well there's there's one particular story that I think is getting missed around the story of of young voters and actually the story of young people in this election I think everyone continues tool a measure. The motivation excitement on commitment of young boy in this election Through the voter turnout in. It's one measurement of enthusiasm and motivation. But it is not the only measurement that we should be taking away from the story about young people getting active today. Arizona sexually a pretty. We're stayed that. Is Changing our demographics.

I. you're not your taxpayer dollars at work but I have to tell you are in the moment and even I started a new. a parable merriment wow wow okay everybody got there the soccer on I guess everybody relax and and this is how the people aboard a supervisor's weaving started out wait wait wait what is submitted alley Miller have her rather large from what I remember correctly. okay next time I talk to her she gets rid of. all right all right. with the drum. maybe this is all about you know because you know the I guess the Peiping is a form of like a peace pipe or something like that. and there you go and I thought well maybe we'll we'll teach people how to have another way okay bye. savage beat then the room the problem is there weren't any savage be showing up they had guided the ordinance so much that it had become kind of meaningless so even that large lapierre or died of cancer society note that even they said you know we're we don't we don't support that the Roger Miller had been opposed sort all along she said it was really you know should have been done on the state level and actually many people argue that if you're going to have an age issue you know on the state level because you'll have to going from one you know political subdivision to another for the municipality and they're gonna get computers because they're gonna have different ordinances. the thing was a disaster they said that they didn't exempt date being but if you look at the actual ordinance that forgot to take that exception out it was just. I think. political stunt and those that way it sounds like they were you know trying you paying attention to what was happening nationally in trying to jump on the bandwagon of four Pima county to try to deal with this national issue it's it's once again not really I don't know how bad the vaping issue is or if it is bad in Pima county but it is it is it is two new national laid to have this type of impact than on the local level I think I could be wrong but death I believe the I. tell me what's tell me how. well what I think is happening at the ones that national effort but it started off of these little national groups they go out and they eat all these localities you know what Adnan allergies and they say you have to change your ordinances right and then they create this fear because this is actually been in the works in Tucson okay accounted for some time and then all of a sudden you know it has this crescendo right where all my gosh all the sudden we know of all the staff will be happening for awhile it is yes it's horrible and and we need to do something about it but I think if you really kind of behind the curtain he's a calling her phrase you'll see the. there were other forces kind of behind it and they had been doing that for a long time well what kind of just the finale on the Pima county level well on the Pima county level they were going to pass the orders I guess that said you had to be twenty one years old in order to buy vaping you'll do in order to vape and the the vote came down and I was surprised because I thought it would be a three two vote and I thought that the left would say yes you know because we have to do something to do something about and they would change a lot to you would you could not do this to your twenty one but surprisingly Loretta hot honey cut it was a three two vote where you have one of the lefties Joanna the the Republicans. on the. okay that what happened well I think you know Sharon Bronson facing some pretty stiff opposition and she does not have a probably last district so she and the bobbing and weaving in and making different boat depending on what her it looks like her district might want and so I think you're going to be seeing kind of a question a big ship on her part because decided yesterday she was very if they were hoping to sweep the end of the community law enforcement partnership mission under the rug and the lawyer didn't kind of let that happen and she realized she had gotten out now it's going to come back again and she was beyond furious so she was beside herself. the truth of the matter is our district does not lean it lance laughed but it's not a hard left right and so she is in a real tricky position and so she should I think you're gonna see her trying to do the right thing on occasion and the hope is that it dates are imagine imagine that in the center ring of conservative circus we have the editor of the Arizona daily independent this is Loretta how to cut I I got a few more minutes left I would be remiss if I did not ask you to to tell us what happened with the the very controversial stone garden funds. once again. and as one of the Arizona down independent writers but it they had outsmarted themselves they out maneuvered themselves and so they ended up and we're going to have a story Ottoman soon they they had two different proposals the one with the just and the thing completely the discussion although they didn't put it on the agenda that way so I think they were really trying to trick the public and then the other one was like a convoluted version of almost like the smoking ordinance where it was. Monia only it really didn't do anything I think the progressives understood exactly what they were trying to do that drum circle might've been helpful pursued being people but they well I think the progress of kind got blindsided because the language on the agenda didn't really show what they were trying to do in the end they still couldn't get it right. and because sure. she. very annoyed at him during one part of the media looked away and. you know under her breath to the lawyer will thanks a lot for that. and it would kind of dramatic and if she wanted the thing to just add because it is the political albatross for her well yeah it would be a political Albatros is specially if she's trying to position herself you know of for reelection but at the end of the day of the take away is that the board of supervisor punts once again leaving what leaving what the sheriff's department leaving a law enforcement high and dry no. come back on and tell.

And Obama appointed judge overrules President Trump. Oh boy. President Trump had what they call the weight in Mexico policy. Meaning if you're a migrant coming up from wherever not Mexico, and you wanna get here. You can't just you're not you're not gonna come here. We had an agreement with Mexico. You must stay in Mexico until you're cases heard any federal judge said, you must stop this because it is illegal likely legal likely legal, and it is too dangerous for these people to stay in Mexico.

Violates the law and Mexico so dangerous asylum-seekers cannot wait there. Horrible. Yeah. Okay. We're go activists. Judge third thing that I think you need to know. This is a is a big frigging deal. Apparently, John Solomon broke this over at the hill. Ukrainians Ukrainian law enforcement officials say they have evidence of wrongdoing by American Democrats like Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, ranging from two thousand sixteen election and appearance to obstructing criminal probes. But they say they've been thwarted and trying to get the Trump Justice department to act. Yes. The current Justice department that is still loaded with a bunch of Obama holdovers and deep staters they just don't want. So Ukrainian officials are saying why don't you want our evidence on Democrats, dude? Billboard better, wake the hill up or attorney general. I know he just got in there and Trump better say, what are you doing? What's going on? Let's get this going more on that coming up three things. I think you need to know. That's a big deal. Right there, isn't it. Just listening to rush yesterday's driving around and right here at Kanus. He of course, and he had a great point. He said Trump is the least corrupt. President we've ever elected. I something like the least corrupt. Politician the least corrupt person we've ever that. We have in office. I mean, you think about it all the crap on Obama all the crap on on Biden. Now, Hillary all all these people. And it was great three years of not just our television. But British intelligence other countries intelligence trying to find something because they were frayed that Trump was going to destroy NATO because he was like you better pay. Right. You better pay. Do we need it? What's going on? And and they couldn't find anything they make up that dossier. I mean, isn't that a great frigging point? I mean, if there was something on this guy, they would've had it out. You think probably two and a half years ago? They had nothing they had to make something up. Now, we have actual stuff. You know, what before get the clips you might as well talk about this. And there's a great piece by John Solomon. This guy has been all over it all over it. He's on Hannity show. A lot you're on KABC. Conce? I'm gonna say Constantine. Deputy head of the prosecutor general's international legal cooperation department, I know this is so bad told John Solomon, he and other senior law enforcement officials tried unsuccessfully since last year. Hello Jeff Sessions. Hello that little weasel rod Rosenstein since last year to get visas from the US embassy in Kiev to deliver their evidence to Washington. So wait a second. They tried to get visas from the us embassy in Kiev. So they can go to Washington to give this evidence. Quote, we were supposed to share this information during a working trip to the United States. However, the embassador blocked us from obtaining a visa, she didn't explicitly explicitly denier visa, but also didn't give it to us. Hey, why don't you just come up legally claim that you are in danger? Just go to Mexico come on up walk right through everyone else is who's the embassador must be an Obama. Holdover. One focus of Ukrainian investigators. This guy said has been money spirited unlawfully out of the Ukraine and moved to the United States by businessmen friendly to the prior pro Russia regime, Victor Yenikoy ch. Ukrainian businessman, authorized payments of lobbying efforts. You're ready to record at the US government. In addition, these payments were made from funds that were acquired during the money laundering operation, we have this guy said we have a US even formation that a US company was involved in these payments. The company is tied to one or more prominent Democrats. Ukrainian officials insist. So we spent two and a half three years on a BS crap investigation about a rush Russia, and now we have this and the Trump Justice department, which still has a bunch of career deep staters. Is saying no, we don't want this information. You can't give it to us. Don't show it to us. There's more in another instance. This Ukrainian said Ukrainian authorities gathered evidence that money paid to an American democrat. Allegedly was hidden by Ukraine's national anti-corruption bureau during the two thousand sixteen election under pressure from American officials one democrat this is. In the course of the investigation, we found there was a situation during which influence was exerted on the national anti-corruption bureau. So that the name of the American would not be mentioned. Oh. Ukraine. John Solomon rights is infamous for corruption and disinformation. Its version operations. It's police agencies fight over what is considered evidence of wrongdoing. This guy said his bosses even political fights over who should and shouldn't be prosecuted. So allegations coming from here are are usually taken with a grain of salt. But many of the allegations shared with me by more than half a dozen senior senior Ukrainian officials are supported by evidence. That emerged in recent US, court filings and intelligence reports you're ready for this. The Ukrainians told me their evidence includes sworn statements from two Ukrainian officials admitting that their agency tried to influence the two thousand sixteen presidential election in favor of Hillary Clinton. We wrote about this last week last week the week before the effort included leaking an alleged ledger showing payments to then Trump chairman, Paul Manafort, Trump can't be remember that. Contacts between. That's when they wanted to get the whole thing about Trump's Russia. Russia Trump, they did it on purpose. Contact because they want people to not vote for Trump. They can he's Russian agent or some crap like that contacts between democratic figures in Washington and Ukrainian officials that involve passing along dirt on Trump. So we're getting stuff again from foreign countries foreign influence financial records, showing Ukrainian natural gas company. Routed more than three million dollars to American accounts tied to one hundred Biden. Vice president Biden son, we played this last week, computer Schweitzer. Vice you son of vice president Joe Biden who manage US Ukraine relations for the Obama administration member he went over on air force to to China to get a deal done Biden's, son served on the board of Ukrainian natural gas company. Burri small holdings in Peter Schweitzer had this we have the sound bites. Records show vice president Biden pressure. Ukrainian officials in March of two thousand sixteen to fire the prosecutor who oversaw an investigation of burrito holdings who and who plan to interview hunter, Biden about financial transfers matter of fact, if you. If you look at Biden even have those sound soundbites we put them in last week. Put them in last week. I you just thought you just had it. Yeah. You just had it. It's a short sweet sound. But it is. Yeah. That's the one listen to this. Here we go. This is what Biden two thousand sixteen or twenty seven. Six hours. The prosecutors not fired. You're not getting the money. Oh, son of. Fire and they put in place someone who was solid and to time. He said, you will you will fire that prosecutor going after my son or you will not get a basically American loans. Correspondent showing members of the State Department and US embassy in Kiev interfered or applied pressure and criminal case criminal cases on Ukrainian soil is all evidence of this disbursements of as much as seven billion dollars in Ukrainian funds at prosecutors believe may have been misappropriate or taken out of the country, including to the United States. These officials from Ukraine, so they don't have the evidence to the FBI agents working in Ukraine because they think the bureau has a close relationship with the national anti corruption bureau. And the US embassy, quote, it's no secret in the Ukrainian political circles at the ABC, you is created with American help and tried to exert influence during the US presidential election. This guy's told John Solomon. But he said he wants to get a meeting with attorney general William bar. Regarding the appropriation of another seven billion US dollars with Ukrainian legal origin. This is a big deal. Ukrainian officials have gone public in recent days of their frustrations after months of trying to deliver the evidence quietly to the Trump department of Justice and fizzled unable to get visas from American embassy, some Ukrainian law enforcement officials saw back door channels one of those avenues involve reaching out. Last fall to a former federal prosecutor from the George W Bush years, Gordon interviews. No response. Follow up. No effort, nothing. Like that. Get this Email it to the president. I know right. We all this dossier cloak and dagger stuff, and it's like the nineteen seventies and eighties. I know. It's like we have so many ways to communicate can't just you don't think Trump's gonna see this cinema text. I think he's going to see it. But on Twitter. I again, I think he's gonna he'd better. See it. You better. See a big time big lease soon better make it happen. So that's a big freaking deal at six forty by the we we'll we'll talk about eclipse, he stuff, and you'll hear some sound bites and everything else of how we're going to reject all these funds, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, once again that that's going to happen.

We'll find out why Jose Rico thinks that he should be the alderman for the twelfth ward. And we're gonna check in with our friends from northeastern Illinois university and some theatre projects they have going on in communities throughout the city. And of course, we'll check in with political cartoonist for this kind of Tribune, Scott Stanton. But I I wanna talk about where we are right now, we're heading into the fifth week of a government shutdown. The president is demanding that Democrats agree to fund a wall, and what he is calling border crisis. And we can have opinions and arguments about the issue, but so few was truly know what is happening along our southern border. So I thought we should try to someone who can share firsthand experience from a law enforcement perspective. And I want to introduce you to the Pima county. Arizona sheriff Mark Napier. Hey sheriff. How are you doing tonight? Very well. Thank you for having me on. I am. I'm really interested. I I wanted to learn more about your career because it informed so much of your experience. And I know how hard you work to try to keep our country safe from your vantage point, tell tell me where did you grow up? Did you grow up in Pima county? No, I actually grow up. Right. Adjacent to you. I'm a displaced I will farm boy, I grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, I became a police officer over in Marshall town Iowa nineteen Eighty-one and was there for six years. And then went to Tucson, Arizona. Nineteen eighty-seven to escape some weather that all of you might be enjoying that. I no longer. It was I think it was only sixty five or sixty eight here today. It was very very cold. So you're saying that when you when you realize it snow was an option you took off. I can see the snow in the mountains from my house. And that's as close as I want to get to it anymore. So we came to Tucson and eighty seven and took a position with Tucson police department. I was there a little over twenty one years during my career with teepee PD. I realize law enforcement was becoming incredibly complex is just becoming more and more complex is my career went on. So went back to school, and I got an undergraduate degree in social psychology. And then went on to get my master's degree from Boston University in criminal Justice and retired from Tucson police in in two thousand eight as a captain and went up to Phoenix valley. I was an assistant chief of police up there for a while. And then I thought it was going to retire. I took a job with the university of Arizona, which I love I love the academic environment. I'm an academic at hard and was there about eight years. And then people said, hey, you should run for sheriff. No, I don't want to I'm happy hour, forty hours a week and life is good. And they said, no, you really should. And and as they say the rest is history was elected in took office in January of two thousand seventeen and I've been the sheriff of this county for. Two years now. So you come with experience not only in a fundamental way with you know, as a police officer. But also from an academic background. I have to ask what led you to a career in law enforcement. You know, that's a great question. I don't know. And most honest answer is that I always knew some very small child that I was going to be a police officer or schoolteacher and I ended up being both. I've been teaching for Boston University for the last fourteen years in their online master's in criminal Justice program after I graduated they hired me as a teacher, and I've been working for them Mary sense and have done a lot of consulting work in in adult education stuff aside, love education. It's a passion of mine I'm committed to that. But I love law enforcement. So I I've been blessed life. Honestly that I've been able to do both of those things. I am wondering, you know, coming from and then going down to Arizona. What was what was the big adjustment for you? When it comes to when it came to law enforcement and fighting crime or protecting the public safety. What was certainly adjustment on Marshall? Tons a relatively small community mid western as you know, God bless the people in the mid west. I just love all of you. I I love going back. There always been I will far boy at heart. There's a certain character to the people in the midwest. I just really unfond of in the culture here is very different much more diverse Pima county by county is nine thousand two hundred square miles, which is hard to imagine in the midwest our exposure to the international border in just my county is a hundred and twenty five linear miles. So we're very very diverse. Community Pima county has a population of just over one million people we have very metropolitan areas, and then very very rural areas. I mean, very remote areas out in the desert. So the western part of my county, and it just some beautiful scenery. And we have wonderful people are great sense of culture. It's a very diverse community now in your experience working as the sheriff in Pima county. Obviously different from when you're in Tucson being right there where we're having these conversations but earlier even when you weren't along the border. What was your experience when it came to illegal immigration how that was affecting crime and national security? Well, I the issue of illegal immigration from crime because they're not the same thing. Many people who immigrate to this country without proper documentation have no intention of committing a crime basket or in this country without proper documentation, many of them are very struggling in their home-country coming here for a better life declined picture, which is faced is a Tucson police officer and then commander on the south side of Tucson is was a drug trafficking. We have load houses throughout my area and a drug rip crews would come from the border and actually engaging gun fights with other drug dealers in our community to steal either drugs or money or both. And of course, crime associated with human trafficking, the coyotes and bandits would prey upon the undocumented is our bottom across the border, and there was crime associated with that so often, and too often in my opinion, we. We we don't separate the issue of illegal immigration from transnational crime. They're not exactly the same. They kind of blend together a little bit. But so many people Patty in this world is specially in Central America, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, are making very very desperate decisions. And you and I probably everybody listening with food in our stomachs roof over our head and safety. Can't imagine the desperation some of these people feel and and they they walk hundreds of miles to try to come to this country for a better life, many of them are victimized criminally victimized by the environment, which is very harsh and southern Arizona during the summer and many of them lose their lives. And that's something. I've heard you talk about whether it's their the migration and trying to walk from wherever you make that that that journey to the borders or after the cross the border into your jurisdiction. I know that you've talked about how many bodies you recover throughout the year. How about how many did you have last year? Well, over one hundred bodies were covered in in the desert Pima county, those are the ones we find and the tragedy is that. We absolutely have no idea how many are out there. And imagine that you are in Honduras, or all Salvador and five years ago, you kissed your family goodbye and said I'm going to walk to American the hope of a better life and last week.

Do you struggle with the the vocabulary of the language that's used in these arguments? A you mentioned that the president framed it in with the words of humanitarian effort, you know, and I have to be part of that is informed by perhaps the two children who lost their lives and other people who are struggling and suffering. Do you would you prefer that the president and other politicians perhaps found a better way to have this public discourse? Yes, I'm really disappointed in and honestly from my viewpoint. I am a Republican sheriff. But there's most certainly enough blame to go around. I think what you're sheriffs in thirty one border sheriffs Senate, the international border with Mexico, and we'll we'll collectively responsible two thousand miles of international border is that we have people that come to excuse the phrase are part of the world, and they'll stand by Puerto of entry, and they'll get their picture taken with some people in uniform and fly back to Washington DC experts on the border. Well, that's ludicrous. We live this every day of this has been my home for thirty one years. We have a pretty good handle on this and the rhetoric. The political rhetoric is so charged in Washington DC on both sides of this issue that we're not moving the ball forward. And unfortunately, this has become a battle of who wins a political fight. And don't we send people to Washington DC, not to win for Republicans or Democrats, but to win for the American people, isn't that why we sent him to Washington DC? So I'm I'm.

"Were given safe haven and sanctuary by Democrats because they wanna feel good about themselves, and as their fellow traveller Joseph Stalin famously said you gotta break a few eggs to make an omelet and they're making an omelette. You know, how they are there omelette makers from way back. Let's let's go to let's go to the sheriff. This is a border sheriff of Pima county in Arizona, and it has a big long swath of border with Mexico. Arizona. Mexico Pima county Mark Napier is his name. He's the sheriff. He's got four stars on his lapels and stuff, and he was on the Fox News channel yesterday because CNN doesn't have people like that on nora's MSNBC. They don't have other voices. They just have party voices. That's why they hired John casick. Another gonna say see we hired another Republican. Because he's a frothy anti-trump Republican. That's why they love him. So here's the the sheriff Mark Napier from Pima county Arizona, and he's talking about the border and the drugs and all of that stuff. And how things have changed is more violent. Now, there's more human trafficking, and the Democrats will say well, the numbers of people crossing the hundreds of thousands are at a jacket low. Yeah. Well, that's good at the end of World War Two fewer troops were being killed. You know, that's I guess you can call that progress perhaps not actually, but it's an irrelevant statistic. Nonetheless. Sheriff Mark Napier Pima county, the drug wars changed a lot over the last twenty years. It used to be large quantities of marijuana coming between the ports of entry and the drug traffickers headed import hundreds and hundreds of pounds of marijuana. Well, now, we see the rise in on the rise in nethon phetamine and even cocaine and a great diminishment of the amount of marijuana being traffic into this country across our southern border. So the drug wars change, but also the violence associated with human trafficking migrants coming across because they have to pay the cartels to come into the corridors into our country, and many of these people are being victimized criminally sexually in a case of women and then through the environment and the environment. Keep in mind that CBS news found that President Trump was wrong in his address to the nation when he said thirty percent of women are sexually assaulted on their way to the United States. They corrected him. They wanted us know that it was sixty to eighty percent sixty to eighty or seventy to eighty sixty to eighty percent or actually sexually assaulted. So at least twice as many as the president said pay no attention to the sexual assaults. The Democrats like the status quo the status quo makes them happy. And it keeps their houses cleaned too. Sheriff Mark Napier Pima county what pulls on my heartstrings. It's my deputies recover over one hundred bodies a year in the desert of my county alone, and that is a humanitarian crisis, and those are only the bodies that we find we have absolutely no idea. How many bodies are out there? My county alone in one year at least one hundred bodies, and those are just the ones they find their animal's out there, and they're buzzards, and they pick them clean. You've seen the old western movies and stuff like that. And then say, look, you know, we've got seventy thousand opioid overdose deaths in the drug overdose deaths in the United States in two thousand seventeen and the Democrats say, well, they're coming through the ports of entry. Oh, that's your response to seventy thousand deaths in the United States greater than the number killed in the Vietnam war fighting for freedom against communism against totalitarianism. And they say purchase. Venture you're a racist. And then you're done talking because they're idiots and morons. Here's the sheriff Pima county. He knows the thing about all this. It used to be that if we interdicted two ounces of methamphetamine or so that was that was pretty big Boston. The last couple of weeks. My deputies have done three seizures one fifteen pounds one of fourteen thousand one of ten pounds. We know that those drugs are not being cooked in Pima county, they're coming up from the southern border. And then they're being distributed all across the country. So if we can stop these things in my backyard, people don't die in other People's Front yards across the country. So this is a national emergency into suggest that it's not a crisis is to be disingenuous to the point of almost being dishonest with malice dishonest with malice I liked that phrasing. The reason I selected that sound bite because I enjoyed the phrasing of of that one. Now going on on Capitol Hill there is this hearing I think they probably broke for cocaine or a prostitute break or something like that. And they they're grilling William bar who. Who will or will not be the next attorney general of the United States? I think we're all growing quite tired of the process. The Democrats aren't they plan on exhausting the country, but their fanaticism and then having their way with us know what I mean like Roman Polanski and bar. So far this morning has said no the Muller investigation is not a witch hunt. No, I will not cut off funding to the Muller investigation. No, I will not interfere with the Muller investigation. No. The Muller investigation will be allowed to go forward. They're very concerned about the Muller investigation. So let's go to Giancarlo ABC news talked about it yesterday giancarl on Sunday. And then he's been back since then on Sunday on now. What was he on this week with a Clinton administration official with George Stephanopoulos? Talking about the Mueller investigation. How really the Democrats are going to be crestfallen. I did mention this yesterday. But giancarl we are now just I believe weeks away from getting a final report from Robert mall. So much speculation about what he's going to show. He's been looking into this whole range of issues, and I am led to believe by people who have interacted with the special counsel. That we should be prepared for him to release a report there's anti-climactic, oh, no not anti-climactic again anti-climactic, and then giancarl was on with his with his friends at the view at the view yesterday. Isn't that isn't that amazing where it came up again? And he's trying to comfort the left is at the view because they're insane. And say, hey, look, you know, Manafort was indicted on you know, he didn't register as a foreign agent representing Ukraine, and they had some banking chicanery ten years ago, and they got him then dated seventeen or some number of Russians who will never see their day in court because they're in Russia, and they're continuing to do what they do. So it was sort of a farcical window-dressing indictment of Russians that made something look good to somebody. And then let's see general Flynn. He was director of the DIA under Obama. Dan died at him. They threatened to put his son in jail. They bankrupted him. He had to sell his house. And they threaten them with prison. And then it was kind of a shrug. And I was like, well, there's really not much here. I guess he should have filled out some paperwork that said he was a foreign agent. But people do that Oliver Washington Podesta Tony Podesta should be on trial for that. If general Flynn is on trial for that. But the democrat Tony Podesta is not on trial for so he's trying to comfort the the women at the views hit there have been indictments that have nothing to do with Trump or the campaign or Russia and Ukraine and everything else. But but but be prepared for a letdown. Look, he's already done a lot. He's already gotten more indictments inner circle, his campaign chairman, sir dictated, his national security adviser, unrelated indicted, his personal lawyer rain. Thank you so much is already been there. But on the central question taxicabs hotels. Trump medallion putting his campaign coordinate or collude with the Russians in their effort to meddle in the twentieth. Sixteen campaign we have seen zero evidence of that. Oh, no zero evidence of that. I can't send zero all these years later,.
"pima county" Discussed on WMAL 630AM
"Young women walking with their fathers on piers and San Francisco or murdered by illegals were given safe haven and sanctuary by Democrats because they wanna feel good about themselves, and as their fellow traveller Joseph Stalin famously said you gotta break a few eggs to make an omelet and they're making an omelette. You know, how they are omelette makers from way back. Let's let's go to let's go to the sheriff. This is a border sheriff of Pima county in Arizona, and it has a big long swath of border with Mexico. Arizona. Mexico Pima county Mark Napier is his name. He's the sheriff. He's got four stars on his lapels and stuff, and he was on the Fox News channel yesterday because CNN doesn't have people like that on nora's MSNBC. They don't have other voices. They just have party voices on. That's why they hired John casick. Another gonna say see we hired another Republican. Because he's a frothy anti-trump Republican. That's why they love him. So here's the the sheriff Mark Napier from Pima county Arizona, and he's talking about the border and the drugs and all of that stuff. And how things have changed? It's more violent. Now. There's more human trafficking, and the Democrats will say well, the numbers of people crossing the hundreds of thousands are at a decade low. Yeah. Well, that's that's good at the end of World War Two fewer troops were being killed. You know, that's I guess you can call that progress perhaps not actually, but it's an irrelevant statistic. Nonetheless. Sheriff Mark Napier of Pima county, the drug wars changed a lot over the last twenty years. It used to be large quantities of marijuana coming between the ports of entry and the drug traffickers had hundreds and hundreds of pounds of marijuana. Well, now, we see the rise in the rise in nethon phetamine and even cocaine great diminishment of the amount of marijuana being trafficked into this country across our southern border. So the drug wars change, but also the violence associated with human trafficking migrants coming across because they have to pay the cartels to come into the corridors into our country, and many of these people are being victimized criminally sexually in a case of women and then through the environment through the environment. Keep in mind that CBS news found that President Trump was wrong in his address to the nation when he said thirty percent of women are sexually assaulted on their way to the United States. They corrected him. They wanted us know that it was sixty to eighty percent was sixty to eighty or seventy and eighty. Sixty to eighty percent or actually sexually assaulted. So at least twice as many as the president said pay no attention to the sexual assaults. The Democrats like the status quo the status quo makes them happy. And it keeps their houses clean too.
