"Edition on WNYC on Richard hake what New Jersey is expected to hit the peak of its covert nineteen epidemic this week and to assess how the government is holding up we have Brandon McCoy president of New Jersey policy perspective I think tank that's putting out a report today Brenda good morning the morning Richard are you good thank you so much thank you for coming on with us this morning the New Jersey department of health has been at the center of the storm it relays and Suzanne regulates hospitals and nursing homes but hospitals are struggling to keep up with her the the surgeon patience and forty percent of all code related deaths in New Jersey are in nursing homes so how was the department doing the department's doing a very admirable job with the resources that has put the report that we are putting out today we want to look at you know very stable department that residents are really relying on now for release to see how they fare from a budget and staffing level and you know every state government really took a hit during the Great Recession and we want to know the date these departments get back to pre recession levels or they still really underfunded and understaffed and unfortunately what we have found is that most of these departments including department of health department of labor department of community affairs have lower staffing levels and they've had in quite some time and their budgets are still way below where they were prior to the Great Recession yeah can you talk a little bit about that besides the health department what about the other agencies there's a you know their food welfare housing how are they doing they're doing not so great I mean department of labor which is really responsible for processing unemployment claims and enforcing labor protections which is really critical right now since the pandemic hit you know seven hundred eighteen thousand New Jersey workers have filed for unemployment benefits to help them make ends meet but the department of labor is working with a quarter fewer full time employees and I had over ten years ago and department of community affairs similarly is responsible for many of the housing energy assistance programs that people gonna rely on the surrounding times that department has over forty percent less funding than it did just prior to the Great Recession and the number of full time employees is down about a quarter so just really not having the capacity that they need to respond to this moment as quickly and as strongly as they like to yeah you mention unemployment some five hundred seventy seven thousand people in New Jersey filed for unemployment insurance since March of fifteenth and the system for processing them has been overwhelmed so much that the governor has been pleading for help from anyone who knows how to do computer programming what's about what's the backstory there yes so the department of labor's technology system is cobalt which is a system that aren't the older than I am and so you have a lot of difficulty finding computer programmers and you know the like who understand how the system works and because the system hasn't been modernized I'm not a lot of people are trained in that system nowadays and so it's just really you know you have a problem across the country and it's no different in New Jersey where government has not been invested in there's been a lot of the funding going on especially since the Great Recession a lot of things not get back to investing in you know their various assets to the way that they were beforehand and now it's coming back to bite us a little bit here because we don't really have to capacity that we need to and that's largely due to years and years and years of austerity budgeting and you know a lot of tax cuts for the very very wealthy so so finally I mean governor Murphy took control of a state that have been cutting back its investment in public health for years but many elected officials and their constituents argue that taxes were too high and cuts had to be made so do you think they were wrong yes because I think that's an incomplete picture of New Jersey taxes may be high for the working middle class but they've been really really cut significantly for the wealthiest families and corporations in the state and when you take on a whole other wealthiest families in New Jersey paled smaller share of their income to taxes than the middle class and so that's the situation where the previous administration cut taxes significantly and consent to the tune of a fifteen billion dollar loss for the stay in the fifteen up fifteen billion dollars a week really use right now to invest in these programs all right Brenda McCoy president of New Jersey policy perspective

N. Y. C.'s Matt Katz joins us now to talk about it not good morning good morning Richard so Matt we don't usually hear about refugees in Japan that's right but we really should because just like the U. S. after World War two Japan signed you an agreement to protect people seeking asylum and just like in the U. S. there's an argument to be made that Japan is not for filling that mission just forty two refugees were resettled last year Japan would Japan is is a margin of society not a lot of immigrants in general are refugees really going there they are more than ten thousand people seek asylum in Japan every year and that's why I went there really to show that when central Americans are flowing into our southern border and that becomes a controversial issue war Syrian refugees up and the political status quo in Europe those aren't isolated things they're all symptoms of a global crisis and Japan is really a sign of where we're headed in the U. S. to under the trump administration all right so all this week you'll be telling us the stories of refugees in Japan where you taking us today I'm taking you to the outskirts of Tokyo to a walk up apartment in a public housing developments a meeting a guy name must Sambat Mangala he's a refugee from the Democratic Republic of Congo and he speaks some Japanese but he's more comfortable doing this interview in its native French model so with me there's a French translator and we're sort of crammed into Mongols living room wearing Japanese slippers that he provided in drinking iced Japanese green tea that is pregnant wife brought us this young signon to four months yeah my goal is tall with thick black glasses he begins by telling me about how he was a geography and math teacher in Congo but got involved with an opposition political party no sense in it the cynic take a live DVD that was only the beginning of the trouble Congo has an authoritarian government my goal was arrested released and then when he found that he was going to be arrested again he decided to flee hit a cousin with some connections you got a passport with a fake name to get out of Congo what did you know about Japan at this point some bars use surveyed the shop on thank you we subsequently an economic power house logically advanced but at the same time isolated in a world apart these people doubles while it has definitely double number just call there and see the place this is the story of refugees these days they are just walking across borders they're arriving at airports with smart phones in hand to help them with directions and communication after Mongol landed in Tokyo he ended up in Ginza the rich yes neighborhood in town and he couldn't figure out where to go he started stopping random people on the street it was a violently speak English speak French just imagine for a minute Mangala landed in this city modern and homogeneous healing taller with a different shade of skin and the odds that he was going to be welcomes were low less than one percent of applicants get refugee status in Japan Jim just three dollars in Altamonte there will be water seems to be in a hurry was like a different world he walked as if there was already some kind of race in the movie was racing you know eventually you applied for asylum but like many undocumented immigrants in the US during the years it took for his application to be reviewed Mangala wasn't legally allowed to work even though Japan as an aging workforce and needs laborers Mangala was then denied refugee status may the government said he shouldn't have used a fake passport to get out of Congo there's a lady man was sitting influencing Jeez times of war and fleeing to our forced to resort to certain actions to escape how can that be an instruction Mangala said the fake passport was the only way to save his life asylum seekers everywhere are running up against reasons like this when they look for safe haven they're seen as terrorists hustlers trying to game the system thing is as governments limit who qualifies as a refugee the kind of refugee is actually expanding their fleeing due to climate change poverty violence against women ethnic strife police corruption eventually Mangala got lucky he went to the Japanese quartz to appeal his case and finally one refugee status eight years after he got the Japan now we stock shelves the flagship store for uniqlo in the same.

"Edition on WNYC on Richard Hake. President Trump has tried to limit immigration at the US border, but hundreds of thousands of immigrants. Learn their fate in immigration court. New York City has the nation's busiest court and WNYC's Beth Fertig has been spending a lot of time there. She's seen firsthand how new pressures on immigration judges raise questions about whether the court is losing its independence and becoming a vehicle for the president's anti. Immigrant agenda. Hagi McManus was a New York immigration, judge on January twentieth of two thousand seventeen until that inauguration day. She says government lawyers in her courtroom often allowed immigrants to stay in the country if they hadn't committed any serious crimes, but those deals vanished just as President Trump was sworn into office at noon. If the case could be finished before, twelve o'clock, the case would be taken off the calendar. If you had the misfortune of having one clock hearing, that was it, it was over, meaning no deal in the coming month government lawyers were instructed to oppose nearly every case immigration court. The judges deciding these cases are supposed to be neutral, but they work for the Justice department and their old boss. Former attorney general Jeff Sessions took several steps to make it harder for them to rule in favor of immigrants. Asylum rates dropped then last October the Justice department enacted. Quotas to manage the growing backlog of cases judges now have to complete seven hundred cases a year to earn a good review. We're absolutely seeing some of the lowest morale and anxiety. That's completely on precedent at Ashley Tabbara's, president of the immigration judges union. She says the quotas risk sacrificing due process for expediency because they're hard to ignore judges now. See dashboards on their computers, showing in red yellow and green, whether they're completing enough cases, you are holding it like a hammer over the judges head telling the judge unique to finish these number of cases, this fast or you're going to lose your job essentially, that is the most ineffective and frankly, counter productive way to run a court this year. The American Bar Association declared the US immigration courts on the brink of collapse. They have more than eight hundred fifty thousand pending cases. Ios and fewer than four hundred fifty judges. That number includes a lot of new judges hired by the Trump administration, but they're already underwater immigration. Judge acting migration, New York City today, Sam factor is the new judge. He started hearing cases in October one fight December. He was scheduling new trials almost two years in advance, July eighth twenty twenty one. The immigrants lawyer at this procedural hearing wanted to be sure the judge was referring to twenty twenty factor. Then joked about his busy calendar. Give me fifteen minutes. Twenty twenty one up factor is one of nineteen judges in New York City, who started after Trump took office, new judges are under probation for their first two years. The union says that makes them especially likely to feel pressured to meet their quotas. And the government is giving the many cases at wants to expedite specifically families from Central America seeking asylum. So even though factor was scheduling trials and twenty twenty he had to give watt Amal and mother and child an earlier date. Toper sixteen two thousand nineteen one pm. So. The city's main immigration court is that federal plaza. It's so crowded immigrants. Wait in long lines in the hallways just to enter the courtrooms. You'll meet people from Russia, Mexico, India, China and the Caribbean. Petra baron was crying as she tried to find her name on the calendar. One morning in March. She couldn't afford a lawyer, she described the experience outside the court is overwhelming is like you versus the immigration guy that wants to remove you. You don't know why he going to say that morning. Her judge gave her more time to find an attorney. That's one type of delay that contributes to the court's backlog, also hearings held by video often have technical glitches. And sometimes the government isn't prepared this happened the day, I was observing judge factor, the, the not have the file for the respondent for this hearing. Is that correct? Correct. The judges aren't allowed to speak to the press. That's why Tabata does so on behalf. Their union. I told her WNYC obtained government data showing that last year, more than fourteen thousand hearings were rescheduled because judges ran out of time a higher rate than in previous years and more than five thousand cases were shelved because interpreters weren't there? These are all indications of what happens when you have a court that the sensually structurally flawed as they migrate courted flawed. She says because it's run by the Justice department. We are a court station in a law enforcement agency run by a federal prosecutor and done so consistent with the executive branches law enforcement priorities. The immigration court has always been under pressure at a congressional subcommittee hearing this year. The man now in charge of the court James McHenry cited recent improvements by his agency, the executive office for immigration review. It's known by the acronym, e or yours hired more immigration judges in the past two plus. Fiscal years than hired in the seven prior fiscal years, combine, and he says, the number of cases judges are completing is among the highest since the nineteen eighties. Mckenry also defended the quotas by insisting judges can be fair and swift. The administration says expediency is crucial because of the surge of new migrants in the past year. The critics say it's time to acknowledge uncomfortable truth. Immigration court is not a court. Jake, Laura is an immigration lawyer in New York City. It is at best, a kangaroo court, that was made out of whole cloth by regulation statute, Ross, and other lawyers are working with the judges union to move the immigration court out of the executive branch, this would make it more like bankruptcy courts, the solution wouldn't follow the backlog, but an independent court would have more control over its budget. Judges would have fixed terms and they'd have more power right now they can't even hold a lawyer in contempt of court. The proposal has been. Circulating for years, immigration advocates support it because they say Trump has turned the court into part of his deportation machine this phrase bothers, former immigration judge Bob wise out, he believes judges really do strive to be independent of the court is not a deportation machine. The I know the chief judge, she's a fine person so believes in the court someone to believes due process by an immigration, judge for twenty seven years in New York. He's still says judges want to be impartial. That's why he now supports taking the immigration court out of the Justice department for a long time. I didn't believe that that was necessarily a good thing because we were independent in terms of our decision making and the case completion goals were aspirated, but he says the quotas changed all of that creating an independent immigration court requires congressional approval, even supporters acknowledge it's an uphill climb, but they believe. It is possible to get bipartisan support. If independence is framed, as a good government proposal, not tied to immigration reform otherwise, the immigration court will remain part of a system, everyone wants to improve but can't that fair tag WNYC news as before judges, do not talk to the media, but you can see more.

Thanks so much. Thank you. As Democrats jump into the race for twenty twenty Senator Kirsten gillibrand stopped by WNYC on Friday. Just a little over a week after announcing her presidential campaign for an exclusive wide ranging interview with politics reporter bridge, Bergen, Bridget now joins me in the studio to share some of what she learned bridge. Good morning. Good morning. So you've been reporting on Senator gillibrand for awhile now when you profiled her for our podcast, the United States, anxiety the summer. How did you start your conversation about her run for president? Well, since it was just hours after President Trump announced the end of the government shutdown. We started they're not surprisingly gillibrand was very critical of Trump in the way he used federal workers as a bargaining chip. But then she took it a little bit further in really laid into him is then. I think really ripping the fabric of this country apart as demonize immigrants and refugees and asylum seekers and Muslims, and it just hasn't stopped and not who yours Americans at all. Then she told me about her recent trip to Iowa and shared a story about talking to a Republican woman voter who she described finding common ground with on border security and comprehensive immigration reform right there. Richard you start to get a sense of her candidacy, she's going to be someone who reaches out to all voters, regardless of party, and particularly women who she considers her base she wants to make inroads with white women voters more than half of whom voted for Trump in two thousand sixteen and she's trying to appeal to voters who are women of color, which is a very important crucial constituency in the Democratic Party. Now, how is she trying to appeal to voters who are women of color will since you launched her campaign. She's spoken explicitly about taking on institutional racism rooting it out of our healthcare education. In criminal Justice systems. And she's also talked about amplifying the voices of women of color. So I asked her whether at this moment in history if she thought running for president as a white woman was the best way to do that. I do because I will fight for women of color is hard as I would fight for any woman. I would fight for their children as hard as I would fight for my own children and white women like me must take on these battles because we have to lift up these voices of women who may not be being heard who certainly are speaking out. But not listen to I also asked her why voters should choose her over Senator camera Harris of California, who is herself a woman of color. I think it's amazing. I the communist running, and I think she's an amazing candidate. And she'd be an amazing president. I think a lot of the Democrats that are running our incredible. They're all better than President Trump. We can start there, and they would haul too much better things for this country. Now right now, one of the more popular of figures in the Democratic Party congresswoman Alexandria Cossio Cortes from New York. Someone you've reported on when you did your series on the. Queens Democratic Party. What is Jill O'Brien make of her? Well, I started asking why she endorsed congressman Joe Crowley, overall, Cossio Cortez, given the work. She did supporting other women candidates across the country. Well, just because I was a good friend of Joe's for a very long time. And we worked together on a lot of legislation particularly the nine eleven health Bill, but that is not to diminish Alexandria. Because she is a woman who is on fire. She's got a vision. She wants to get things done. I love her energy. I love her passion. And I think she is shaking things up. And I think she's really sincere about what she wants to accomplish. And I'm going to help her. She also praised ocasio Cortez's dexterity with social media and saw it as a way to pull back the curtain on government in speak directly with people. I should also note. Gillibrand tweeted this weekend about recruiting Cossio Cortez to the congressional women's suffering. They ever team. All right. So it's so early in voters are just getting to know some of the candidates. Did you get any sense of personality? I asked them quick questions at the end. She. He loves books by CS Lewis. She's binge-watch veep and gave thrones. I'm sure she's learned important lessons from both of those that will help her on the campaign trail. She also talks often about her children, THEO and Henry, and she's talked about how hard it will be to be away from them rolled her son goes away to school, and she stays in touch with her younger son every day. I call them, and we do FaceTime. And Henry loves the new cameras because sometimes he likes to put an emoji on his face, which of course, makes me laugh a hard. And I won't tell you which emoji a ten year old boy prefers, you can imagine. I'm not a ten year old. But I can guess what you mean. And she also said all her time away on the campaign trail is going to be big adjustment for son. She used to take him to school every day make meals even coached is baseball team. But you said he's ready for it. He's ready and he's committed and he said, mommy, you have to do this. You might be the only one who could beat him, and.

"On Facebook for an app that promised a. Natural alternative, contraception has been banned by the UK's advertising. Standards authority the Swedish firm behind natural cycles has been warned not to exaggerate its effectiveness. The BBC's Mattie savage talk to one woman with reason to doubt. The app she got pregnant while using it, when we, realized that I was pregnant I felt irresponsible and scared and stupid and everything I mean there's a lot of science behind this app it. Has been approved for use, across the are you sure he didn't do anything. Wrong I feel that I really did everything reading the direction and, everything we decided to go ahead with the pregnancy but well when I, hear about people having abortions It feels awful that women families end up in. That situation Jessica tie is with. The advertising standards agency here in the, UK she supervised the investigation into natural cycles and. I asked, her what she found out so we had. A complaint about Facebook ads from natural cycles, that included the claim highly accurate contraceptive app. And we had a look at the evidence and actually the evidence. Showed that when you look at how people, use it, in practice it was not highly accurate Around eight percents of, women would get pregnant, over the course of the year if they. Were using this app and is the scope for the inventors here to say well people, just weren't using it right Well we we looked at the evidence actually the vast majority of people were not using it what? What, you would cool perfectly less than ten percents of people were using it perfectly and we think that's that's the key thing here really what do people mean by perfect and imperfect use in this case well whenever you look at the evidence for any method of contraception you. Would differentiate between what's cool perfect to, use what school typical use. A so perfect uses using it completely in accordance with the instructions and. For this app that would include, inputting information about your menstrual cycle when you're having intercourse and also excuse it comes with a, thermometer so you have to import your temperature every day at a particular time and we know that for example if you're unwell or if you've been out drinking that can affect how accurate the predictions are because it will then give predictions about what you safe to, have, intercourse that day without using another Method of contraception it's perhaps understandable that that people were? Not, using it perfectly and we think that the key data is how how effective it is in practice not in this perfect world getting pregnant when you want to be pregnant is a pretty serious consequence of misleading advertising isn't it what are the sanctions against them well we. Here to ensure that advertising is not, misleading and our ruling makes. Completely clear that natural cycles should not be repeating this claim that it's.
