Texas Abortion Law: US Supreme Court Votes Not to Block Ban

"Earlier. This month in the middle of the night. The supreme court refused to block a texas law that bans most abortions that law is now the most restrictive abortion measure in the nation it bans abortions after about six weeks of pregnancy and establishes a sort of bounty system. That allows anyone to sue those involved in facilitating an abortion. This is a bigger than texas. The decision could be a blueprint of gutting. Roe v wade. The supreme court ruling that legalized abortion nationally is going to play out in the courts and while it does groups on the ground are figuring out how to adopt is ena. Zamora is the executive director of the fraud data fund they provide support and funding for those seeking abortions in texas rio grande valley. We're gonna talk about what this decision means for those seeking care and where the spite goes from here. A lot of us are in texas right now. We're not looking at this through the lens of someone who was there where using where in texas are you. I'm located in the rio grande valley so deep south texas along the us mexico border. What are you hearing from people in texas. There's a lot of confusion around the law and just people being upset. I think a lot of people think that this law just went way too far the biggest concern for most of the people who do abortion funding work is. How are we going to help. People get their abortion care in your own words. What is this legislation. Do so sp eight what it does is. It bans abortion past six weeks in texas. It is essentially a complete abortion banned because by the time. Most people know that they're pregnant. They're unable to get an abortion and texas. This also has a very cruel and specific civil litigation our civil cause of action that allows anybody to sue anybody else who helps quote unquote to aid and abet someone and getting abortion care in texas past six weeks

Don't you understand when you tell people that they're not going to get vaccinated on the one hand you say hurry up and get vaccinated on the other hand we're gonna treat you as if you're not vaccinated that's not science that's stupidity and we've had a lot of stupidity at a federal scientists and medical directors over the course of the last eighteen months but you wanna know big stupidity.

Historically for decades people had always been allowed to remain in the us while seeking asylum. It's their right under. Us law and international treaty obligations but the trump administration disregarded all of that when it is the remain in mexico policy officially known as the migrant protection protocols or mpp the policy.

"The issue of repopulation as an interesting one. This is about those question. It's not even that complicated. First of all I need to start giving tax advantages to heterosexual couples who are married and stay married for certain number of years and have children period. No more out of no out of wedlock support for the government marriage is the brick of western civil the brick of civilization worldwide. Never mind west of the civilizations. The brick of Muslim civilization Buddhist civilization Hindu civilization, Christian civilization Jewish civilization. The brick of civilizations has been marriage and family from the beginning of time. So you have to support the the founding bricks of civilization, which is marriage. So if you're heterosexual couple, and you're married for x number of years, and you have children you get a monster tax break if not an outright subsidy from the government that would be one step. There are other steps that could be taken. But I. And the intellectuals on the far left in Europe in America believe that because of the fact that white people Europeans do not wanna have children the too busy having sex and breeding light not breeding. It all it just they're just fornicated like mink in planning which. The girls just wanna have fun. The boys don't have the guts to be a father anymore. All they want to do is put on hair gel, skinny jeans. They don't have the guts to to raise a family. It really takes a man to raise a family. The hottest thing on earth is to be a family, man. The toughest thing for a man used to be a family man, stay there for the child. That's the hottest thing in the world and not give into the impulses that are projected by the degenerates in the media who tell you just let it all hang out and have a good time. When of you last seen a movie coming out of Hollywood that glorifies family when the hell have you seen a movie that glorifies family life? I you telling me, though, sickos at Hollywood want you to think that having a family is something that's noble. Are you joking? So we have a cultural problem we have a. Shall I say through seen problem with regard to population? But what's interesting to me about this population issue is that the left is set for longtime ecologically the population is too large American. It's unsustainable. Haven't we heard that for years, but now that the Mexicans Central America's pouring in like lemmings with babies, suddenly this sustainable, how does that work when white people having babies the society was told we need a zero population growth, don't you? Remember, the sixties don't you're a leftist said Z PG tire tubes? How many men listening to this show are liberals and former liberals who had their vast difference tied to not reproduce raise your hand. Look in the car you did that you many men in the seventies. And sixties had their quote tubes tied tied off the vast deference to the sperm died on a rival dead on arrival never crossed the the never crossed the little barrier. There. Because she didn't want those babies to mess up your sex life. So you tied your tubes. Now, the same liberals who think that they're benign in love the world who thought it was a good thing to stop themselves from having children because of population the brainwashing on now saying it's good to have population increases in America as long as they're not white people is that what you're saying. So what does that make you? I'll let you figure it out. So there's a lot of topics the border is being overrun by central Americans. Most of whom will never ever be productive citizens of this nation. I am an immigrant, son. If these people coming here to work in the factories to work in the fields to work in the hotels. I wouldn't even be complaining. I you telling me these fourteen year old girls with three children are not going to be wards of the state for the rest of their lives. I you people that stupid to believe that it is compassionate to take the crumbs that are left for our own needy and give them to foreigners. What is wrong with you people? What is wrong with you people? But the real question is what's wrong with the Trump administration because we have no power over this. We elected Donald Trump to stop this Donald Trump promised. He would stop it. He said he would build a wall and make Mexico pay for it. Mexico said go to hell we thought strong, president would override the Mexicans of said go to hell. We have a worst case scenario Dallas and Houston are going to build new migrants centers because monthly apprehensions of the illegal aliens is reaching near one hundred thousand a month. A hundred thousand a month. And if you think they're only coming through from Central America. I've got sad news for you. According to a major agent in the Rio Grande valley sector agent, rebel fo- carriage. If you think it's fake news. Everyone thinks news. They don't agree with that was fake news. So I'll give you a name Rio Grande valley sect that she patrol agent rebel faux carriage said that his area his region of the border is receiving people from China Bangladesh, Turkey, Egypt and Romania people traveling across hemispheres to sneak into America using the same pathways as the central Americans, and I could go into the numbers, but it's no value. Whereas Donald Trump on this Mr. Trump, we don't need rallies we need results. We don't need hot air. We need cold hard reality. It's good you fired Kirsten Nielsen and the other liberals who you inherited. But what are the new people going to do that? She couldn't do I guess. Given you a plan to stop this. And I don't wanna hear from that. What's this giving Mexico a year from now? Everyone knows that's garbage. Everybody knows that's garbage. Everyone knows it's garbage. Put razor wire on the American border. You heard me you can roll it out with the military in one day, especially in the Rio Grande, the sector where most of them are coming through razor wire this side, and then give the prefabricated military barracks. Style housing to Mexico on the other side of the border and tell them to construct it in one day or less. It's that simple. But you see I'm getting really bad feeling about all of this. I'm getting a really bad feeling that we've all been had. I'm getting a bad feeling that it's too card Monty, I'm getting a bad feeling that no matter who elect the powerful interests that put these presidents in office and believe me, if you think we did it you're right on one hand they needed us city. It's to go and poke the little hole in the ballot for the president. Yeah. We did it. But who was really behind it who made us believe that a business man would be bene- for us that politician? Well, I did I was the one wrote about a two books ago. I should elect a businessman not a politician. So I helped do so well, he's given us a better economy. That is a good thing more employment good thing, but what about the border? How is this country going to sustain its economy? When you have so many dependence coming over the border, it's impossible there. No way for this to be sustained. I love the leftist use a phrase sustain. Ability. It's unsustainable. Well, this is unsustainable. America is being invaded by deadly virus. Some will say I'm an alarmist or this or that is for making such provocative statement. Well, they're wrong. The only SIM is an epidemiologist by training. The fact of the matter is diseases that were either a radical previously contain the now threatening you and me thanks to President Obama's failed open borders policy. The liberal media won't tell you that. But I must warn you that your safety your security and your health are at risk why because the border is more porous than your grandmothers flowers show of twenty five years. I've been trying to one America about the dangers and risks associated with bringing into this nation unscreened unvaccinated immigrants today. This lack of vigilance is causing outbreaks of so-called mystery diseases and illnesses throughout the land. You see Americans once enjoyed the greatest health and healthcare on earth. But because the Obama crowd and the leftists in government today are so corrupt not to mention ignorant about the basics of germ theory. What was once the greatest they should on earth is now in its way to achieving second rate health status as a nation media lapdogs dutifully overlook, what this illegal alien invasion of our borders doing to the health of the nation and infestation orchestrated by the Obama White House for political reasons, we now have a growing number of cases of TB, measles, danke fever, hand foot, mouth disease, and Chagas disease. All of which were previously controlled a radical it in the United States of America. We are also encountering new deadly diseases previously, unknown within our borders. You see for centuries America has had the protection of geographic isolation from contagious and contagious. That had never seen the light of day. Be they diseases from the east of the west. We were blessed with geographic isolation from the viral Horace plaguing the third world granted some diseases have been here and were endemic such as malaria, yellow, fever, cryptosporidium and polio. Thankfully advances in modern American medicine snuffed out many such epithets today, however, a number of previously conquered diseases are being reintroduced because of this reckless government run by the illegal alien lobby the offi of the legal alliens, the left is democrat party. And of course, the Catholic charities and other such so-called religious groups that are held Benton, obliterating our borders. Frankly, this group of anti Americans has done everything, but personally driven illegals across the border in limousines, is well established fact that the United States border patrol agents have been reduced to Boorda babysitters who have been instructed down his hordes of illegals. Pour over the southern border in the process, illegals. Flood in while our agents are exposed to life threatening diseases and summer testing positive for viruses, including H one and one swine flu chickenpox, a drug resistant strain of regular basis, which bacterial illness has been introduced to Lynn, Massachusetts, courtesy of these kids the hordes she brought in from Central America by the trainload under Obama, and then sent through unsuspecting communities to change it from white to something else. You think I'm making it up talk about community organizing. Don't take my word for it. Agent. Chris Cabrera Chris have rare vice president of the national border patrol council told a news outlet that has border agents are suddenly coming down with the season. This country hasn't seen in decades. Due to the endless stream of illegals. Many of whom are sick with scabies contagious skin infection spread by might parasite buried under the skin and to Berkeley. And oftentimes fatal infectious disease, which attacks the lungs. Agents Cabrera asserted we had one agent get bacterial pneumonia couple of days ago. A lot of guys coming down with scabies allies from these people were having a lot of diseases coming in some of them. We haven't seen in decades in this country. And we are worried that they're going to start to spread rampant throughout the United States. Especially if we're leasing people that have these this eases what's the translation all of America is at risk because we have no idea where these illegal immigrants are ending up within the United States of America. Now, I could go on and I will about the big chill and government censorship. But I don't think I need to tell you the government of covering this up. If you've enjoyed the sample of this kindle book, it's very inexpensive. It's the price of beer, and I wrote it not to get rich quick. But.

"Levin, America's passionately. So we will talk with that voice now. Eight seven seven three eight one three eight one one. Yeah. This is a bad Bill kids a bad Bill. Welcome back to the Mark Levin show. Rich Zoli in for the great one eight seven seven three eight one three at one one house freedom caucus retweeting a tweet here from Representative Mark green his statement, quote, the US congress must not pass a Bill that provides non-citizens nine times, more international aid. Then wall money twelve point eight billion dollars in international aid, one point two five billion for the wall. Daniel Horowitz writing over at conservative review, five insane provision in the amnesty omnibus Bill, I share with you the part about basically it's gonna make it impossible to build the wall. Again, my concern is it's a hundred percent legal for the president to declare the national emergency. And that is without question. It is. But unfortunately, because everything goes to the courts now, and unfortunately because the the court sink, they're the final arbiter of all things, you know, that's where it's headed. And I do not think the judiciary should decide. What is a national emergency that should solely be left up to the president. But by the way, this is the house speaker Nancy Pelosi who she was looking things today. She said this. I know the Republicans have some unease about it. No matter what they say. Because if the president can declare an emergency on something that he is created as an emergency. And an illusion that he wants to convey just think of what a president with different values can present to the American people want to talk about a national emergency. Let's talk about today the one you're. Diversity of another manifestation at the epidemic of gun violence in America. That's a national emergency. Why don't you declare that emergency? Mr president. I wish he would. But a democratic president can do that democratic president can declare emergencies as well. So the precedent that the president is setting here is something that should be met with great unease and dismay by the Republicans. Well, the voters have to be aware of that the congress should probably take a no not probably they should take another look at this act of nineteen Seventy-six that grants the president all these powers. But regardless of that fact, it's legal. However, it's going to be challenging court that process. I don't know how long that'll take nobody does. But if this Bill passes, and let's just say for hypothetical because the courts are nuts. Let's say the supreme court says you can't do this this exceeds the intensity of the of the law. I again, I don't think they will. I don't think they will. But with John Roberts. Nothing surprises. Me nothing about John Roberts surprises me. So if he sides with the leftists on that would anybody be surprised. And then if that goes out the window, then you're stuck with this this ridiculous omnibus Bill this massive expensive bloated Bill. That basically means you're not getting the wall because of the language in here. That's that prohibits construction on public lands. How is that remotely possible that they could pass a Bill like that it limits? The Bill to the fence barrier. Whatever the hell they want to call it only to the Rio Grande valley in five locations that are either federal or state lands, but but prohibits construction on those lands. Number two, liberal local officials have veto power over the wall. Okay. Section two thirty two a of this Bill states that prior to use of any funds made available by this act for the construction of physical barriers the department of homeland security Xiao confer and seek to reach mutual agreement regarding the design and alignment of physical barriers within that city. Daniel Horowitz asking with who must defense. Consult the local elected officials. Now, you can understand the brilliance of limiting the wall to the Rio Grande valley. These are the most liberal counties on the border, thanks to the demographics of open borders itself. And there is practically no local officials who supports the wall in these counties. Mortar the consequences. The Bill stipulates that such consultations shall continue until September thirtieth twenty nineteen or until agreement is reached if earlier and may be extended beyond that date by agreement of the parties and no funds made available in the act shall be used for such construction. Well, consultations are continuing thus all the beta aerobic type of politicians in the region have defacto veto power. That's the reason why they didn't authorize fencing in conservative counties like Yuma in Arizona. I just that part alone. There is kooky and nuts. And it'd be nice. If the Democrats were actually sincere about giving local governments power, but you know, they're not right. They would crush local governments and state governments and have a massive federal government controlling every aspect of life. If they could every aspect of what you tell them. Hey, no, more department of education. We'll have the states. Do it. They go crazy. No kids won't be able to read tell them. No, more EPA. Let the states handle the environment the go. No because we're babba. But now they want to give local mayors. The ability to veto a wall in their town. See the hypocrisy of this. They could care less about local governments state governments having any autonomy from the federal government. They could care less couldn't care less depending on how you use that phrase, and please don't debate me on that phrase. It's just not I couldn't care less whether it's grammatically correct, or and it's one of those, you know, it's just an expression. Oppa the Democrats have no interest in giving local governments or state governments any autonomy from the federal government, they will control every single aspect of their life. They put this in here only because those areas are governed by leftists who will veto the the wall from being built it's a little trick. They put him there a poison pill. This is not the party of local government of small government of of letting local authorities make their choices that this is the party of common core. Remember that that took away the choice of anybody to be able to decide. Okay. Taught on the local level. There's another thing here that Daniel Horowitz points out. The Bill contains a blatant amnesty for the worst cartel smugglers. Section two to four a prohibits the deportation of anyone who is sponsoring and unaccompanied minor illegal alien or who says they might sponsor and unaccompanied legal alien. It's truly difficult to. Understate the betrayal behind this provision. One of the driving factors of this invasion is the mis interpretation of the law under current law Central American teenagers are only treated as refugees if they are a victim of a severe form of trafficking and be have no relatives in the country. Almost half of them are self trafficked by these very legal relatives who are indeed present in the country rather than clamping down on this fleecing, the American people the Bill gives amnesty to the very people paying the cartels to invade us. Jessica Vaughan of the center for immigration. Studies said we can call this. The MS thirteen household Protection Act of two thousand nineteen we know that eighty percent. Of the sponsors are in the country illegally, the number of people. This would protect would reach to the hundreds of thousands. If all of the householder potential household members are counted. Isis estimated that thirty to forty percent of the MS thirteen members. It has arrested in the last two years arrived as on accompanied minors. Wow. There is no reason to shield any of these individuals from deportation after all the minor is living with family. They should no longer be considered unaccompanied. Anyway, if there are illegal aliens here who do not yet have a child here to serve as a deportation shield. This certainly is an incentive for them to make the arrangements to bring one. More funding to manage and induce the invasion rather than to deterred we'll offering no new funding for ice deportation agents or immigration judges to speed up Silom claims as he president requested this Bill adds, another forty million dollars for the alternatives to detention program, which moves asylum seekers to facilities in the interior of the country where they are usually released. The center for immigration. Studies has studied interior immigration enforcement for decades and warned that this Bill were further expanded institutionalize the catch and release policies for those arriving illegally at the border from all over the world. Most of the people have no intention of asking for asylum, and no they don't qualify for it. But they are simply joining the illegal population. Knowing it's unlikely they will ever be deported. The Bill funds case management staff to keep tabs on those who don't abscond immediately. But no money for ice officers to find remove them. This is going to saddle the communities that have been forced to absorb these new arrivals with billions of dollars a future costs for schooling, healthcare and other welfare services at the same time the Bill reduces border detention beds from forty nine thousand to forty thousand rather than expanding them as the president. Demanded it contains no funding for more border agents. By the way, the bed issue is that if you don't have to hold them, then you release them on their own recognizance to appear. In court. They don't come back to court. That's the point. It over three point four billion for refugee resettlement more than last year's record levels. Remember much of the refugee program has been used not just for bringing in traditional refugees from overseas. But you resettle the mentioned Central American teenagers being sex trafficked through the border empowering cartels and taking advantage of us. Also doubles low skill workers, the Bill doubles the number of H Choubey. Non agricultural unskilled seasonal workers. We will continue to be a public charge on America. This gives you a glimpse of what is driving this amnesty, Bill Republican side. This is just a cursory glance through the Bill taking together. These provisions will aggravate the criminal conspiracy of the cartels and continue the invasion just this week. Eighteen hundred family units came enduring one twenty four hour period. The message of the Bill is to come here and seek bogus asylum or to grab a kid, and you and others will get amnesty. Plus, there are no wall or policy changes to mitigate these effects. Moreover, this Bill will and this is the key point that I was making earlier this Bill will likely override Trump's executive powers because of the sneaky limitations on wall construction. This is a sort of omnibus Bill that ensnared Reagan in Iran, contra signing, this Bill will undermine his case for an emergency at the border, both legally and politically if Trump signs this Bill instead of vetoing it and firing the people in the White House promoting it. Horowitz's writing not mine. He deserves to lose reelection. This is what I mean in terms of. I know there are a lot of people celebrating the the idea of a declaration of a national emergency. I wouldn't I wouldn't because this Bill would basically make that unfortunately, relevant for so many reasons for so many reasons number one I can see a leftist judge turning around and saying, well, Mr President there isn't an emergency. Because you just passed a Bill you just signed a Bill, you agree to all these terms. So there's no emergency. I could see that part of it can see that. That's the point. He's making. And then if you have another leftist court survey because you know, the Democrats are already going file they're gonna file a challenge to that. They're going to turn around and say the exact same thing. Well, how can there be an emergency? If you just passed the Bill and agreed to only one point five billion dollars in funding. Why did you agree to with that? If there's an emergency. It's a trap. This Bill is a trap president should veto it. He needs to veto. It don't be fooled by this..

"You. You said. Your question. You said it. Is an in morality. It's not who we are as a nation. And this is not a wall between Mexico and the United States that the president is creating here. It's a wall between reality and his constituents his supporters. He does not want them to know what he's doing to Medicare, Medicaid and social security in his budget proposal. He just not want them to know what he's doing to clean air and clean water and the rest in his department. Headache? Democrats total capitulation on the border says this article in the week again, it's marketed south SAP center publication. Democrats agree to hand him over one point three seven five billion to build a fifty five mile long barrier in the Rio Grande valley. Now, if the wall is an immorality the wall is racist. How do you justify it fifty five mile long racist wall? That's an immorality. Also, they agree to give the department of homeland security an additional one point seven billion for border security says this article, including technology at ports of entry more officers, and as an afterthought some humanitarian aid. Now, here's what this article says. And this is what's important handing Trump some wall. My might have been worth it. If the Democrats had gotten something in return legalizing dreamers and others who's temporary protected status. Trump scrapped but Democrats fail to even put this on the table, despite many hints by Republicans that they will consider it. Even worse. Democrats capitulated to the administration's demand for maintaining it's inflated detention bed capacity to house unauthorized immigrants, the Lynch pin of its draconian enforcement actions. So they are not happy. And talked about how negotiations broke down because the Democrats were insisting on a cap on the tension beds, Republican says if anything we're going to increase them, and it says that by rating FEMA. And other agencies within the department of homeland security. Argue a violation of this law and that law and this law, they're going to spend more and more money for this border wall. And the article ends this way, quote, Democrats are trying to sell this as a reasonable compromise by claiming that this funding level represents a seventeen percent cut in detention over current levels. But Trump was maintaining those levels using unauthorized funds. In other words, far from calling Trump for your legally exceeding congressional limits. According to this piece in the week Democrats are using Trump's detention levels as their official baseline, so all in all Trump got more money for a border barrier enhanced border security, and increased attention capacity. What are the Democrats get? Absolutely nothing. Zilch. Nada end of quote now, again, I'm not saying that Republicans feel like this. You heard Ann Coulter. She's very upset. And I'm not quite sure what Sean Hannity's position on this isn't anymore. But as far as I'm concerned, given the competition of congress, given the fact that they picked up. Forty seats. This is about the best you're going to do and for Trump to take around some money and move it around you tell me you can't find side billion dollars. Let alone. You can find twenty five billion let alone five billion dollars to do what he wants to do it. It seems to me they ought to be able to do that. Here is Floyd from Minneapolis. Minnesota Floyd in the Larry elder show. Thank you so much for calling. Hi, larry. Hey floyd. I got a couple of issues. I think I think what Trump should do after he'd take Bill fifty nine miles wall with the new money should go back in jail and tell them close in the liberals in California, if you don't want the wall, that's fine. Then over Jake some of the rest of the money and taken down on the southern border of gal mortgage. Jackson. Go in and take the wall down around. Linda, Pelosi's house and tell her, you know, what you didn't want the wall. So we're going to remove all the borders going into California completely. And we're gonna use them where they want them where after all the wall is Amer and immorality, even racist. So I'm sure that Nancy Pelosi would want the walls removed, obviously, she doesn't Floyd. Thank you very much for the call and you called her Linda, Linda Pelosi. Her name is Nancy Pelosi. Isn't it? Linda Pelosi came in my probably know somebody named mainland with somebody last name. Anyway floyd. Thank you very much for that. I appreciate triple eight nine seven one S A G E Howard Schultz, the man who may run as a fierce, centrist or a centrist independent is that what you said centrist, independent says seventy percent tax on billionaires would be punitive. Now, the IRS is back up and running. I hope you're not still ignoring all those letters notices they've been sending folks the IRS is not allowed to threaten you. If they say, they're gonna do something they are going to do it. The only real question is what are you going to do? He thought it was difficult. Getting somebody on the phone at the IRS before imagine them dealing with millions of people calling all at once. What are you gonna do when they clean out your Bank account? What are you gonna do when they take a chunk out of your paycheck?.

"There's the Rio Grande these people swim of it's over those that you know, the Rio Grande to get there. I would in a Texas in November. And we were right on the border at the Rio Grande in a large group of women mocked for America. And they were telling us about shutdowns at the elementary schools. Scary city kids gunfire. They have to do the school put him in shutdown and to a man and a woman a pregnant woman in a band walked up from the real thing. They had just crossed in our country. They tried to meld into our group or some of these Banik Americans. Were there spoke to them and said where are you from the door? And so we call border patrol, and they came to pick them up. They were gladly. They were glad to be picked up because that's what she's pregnant like she was about how the baby that day. So happy anchor-baby out there in this was I witnessed this. This is it's like the stories. We saw on Laura Ingram. Sean Fox News that Dr down on the border with women's swim across when they're in labor and have the baby run on the banks of the Rio Grande. This witnesses with your own eyes, and what are some of the horror stories besides the gunfire. I mean what what are these ranchers down in Texas? He's Hispanic farmers. And ranchers what are they seeing go across they telling you they're seeing. I mean who knows where these people are coming from what countries they could be terrorist. We don't know. Well, and you know, what really shocked me to when we were on Sean Hannity last Friday. I think angel valleys and officers things brother came on. He was remote. And when Sean how did he was talking about sanctuary cities? Officers thing. Two brothers stated I didn't even know what sanctuary policies work that was that was sad to me because he lives in California. And how many people who live in California don't even realize what their politicians have done over there, creating sanctuary cities state for these criminal to heart. You know, be Harvard in and I'm looking into some possible lawsuits filed against us politicians because I'm tired of them thinking that we're stupid dumb and blind. And we don't know what they're up to good for you know, what are you? What do we need to stand up? We do Garrett. We just cannot continue till our country to go down. The look you're leading the way. And I wish you didn't have to lead the way, and we're all grateful that you are. But it's it's just ridiculous. And then we do everything we can to help and. What do you think of the job the president's doing right now with the shutdown? I think it's fabulous. You know? And and and there's times that I think is this a way for this man to how the government shutdown a little by little longer than normal because he's going to be we eat out unnecessary federal jobs. People are gonna go find other jobs, whether it be laid off while they're being. You know, who knows what this man is up to. But I trust them one hundred percent because he's a smart business, man. And you know, this is this is a business. He's running here. And he's got compassion. He cares about the American people. And I honestly think that whatever he chooses to do I'm going to back him up. And really quick because some people just. You know, they they've never had the face to face. I've never had the face to face with the president that you've had. What's he like as people think, he's an idiot? He's an Opie stupid. He's racist. He's this is that when you because you've seen the president many times. And I remember the last big press conference a couple of months ago, we had all the angel families up and basically force the networks to cover it. And he spoke so well about you guys. What's the president? Like is. He really, caring. What do you like when you get very very, compassionate kind, man. Very soft vocal money's with us. She remembers all of our agency remembers our children remembers the incident. This is a man that I wish America could see I think that you know, when he puts his tweets out when he when he says things, he's a frustrated desire, if not more I can't even think about everything that this man has to deal with and the people that he has to be ugliness having his office. You know, trying to negotiate something like what he's doing. But I'm telling you. Disband cares about America. Any cares about you? And I and that's what we needed a leader.

"Hundred eighty eight ten on Twitter, some of your tweets at Ethan Bearman. So we're in day twenty of the partial government shutdown the president now is I believe on in route if not already on the ground in Texas to visit the border and joining me on the phone to tell us what the heck is going on in Texas right now at least the president's border. Visit Westwood One correspondent Clayton Neville Clayton. Thanks for coming on the show today. And what is what's going on with those this border? Visit today. Yeah. Thanks. The president is not here. Yes. He should be here within the next hour or so expected to touchdown just before one o'clock central time here as we approach twelve thirty down on the order. There are hundreds and hundreds if not thousands of the crowd continues to gather lined up outside of the airport where I am now, and it's free. Splitting the middle in supportive role in supporting President Trump. And then plenty on the other side opposing order all as well. They have come out in force today as the president arrives here in mcallen, Texas area to speak with those on the front lines with border patrol. He'll be briefed down at the Rio Grande and meet with officials here at the mcallen border station as well it'll be about a three and a half hour trip. So do we know? Okay. So hang I said, I want to make sure that Andrew stand what the purpose is Clayton Neville, Westwood One. Correspondent joining me on the phone right now. He wants to meet with border patrol agents that that's what the purpose of misleading photo ops up. I mean, that's normal. Presidential stuff is the photo op and all that. But, but it's the meet with border patrol people to get their perspective on what a wall would look like in the Rio Grande valley or or what? Well, according to the White House the purpose of this trip is to beat with those on the front lines. And that's as much as we've gotten as far as I know. That's brought a lot of question here with the timeliness of this trip two days after he made that presidential address about the border wall. And right in the midst of the government shutdown with the border wall. The main focus there the question is what is the exact purpose of his will. We learn more certainly possible as the afternoon moves along here. There's a lot of people thinking. This could be one of the final steps that the president takes before declaring that the national urgency wanting to get a glimpse at it first hand. So you know, will that follow this visit to mcallen, certainly before the president left the White House today, he indicated that that was the possibility. So yeah, I'm like you. It'll be interesting to find out what the exact purpose is. But at this point, we'll say it's to get a glimpse of the front lines at to speak with people here who are in the situation every day and whoever better grasp as to what's going on. Now, it's really important. I think Clayton to paint a picture. You know, I used to live in the Metroplex have spent some time in Texas and have been to the border in Texas among other states. Under the two thousand six act that was passed by congress a lot of those urban interface areas do have barriers already in maybe not mcallen specifically. But definitely Brownsville. Definitely laredo. You know, all along at up, Al Paso, those types of places where you are down in mcallen. I don't know if you're close enough to the border, but are there urban interface physical barriers already in place there? There is some fencing in parts of the Rio Grande just outside of McGowan Lennon's but gallon is just to the west of Brownsville so little bit west of the tip of Texas, if you can picture that in your mind. It right. There's not a whole lot of fencing in the rural areas now directly south of mccowan and in areas like mission rate, no side of the big areas. You know, about a hundred fifty thousand people in Harlingen some other areas have sixty seventy thousand as well. So pretty populated area. There's three or four big international bridges for boarder crossings. So this particular area is pretty secure. But it's when you go further out past mission and some of those rural areas that is one of the main spots in the state of Texas for legal border crossings, and there really is not much there when you get into the rural areas as far as fencing as of right now the country is relying on order agents. And that could be part of the reason why that is one of the most popular areas for illegal crossings right now in Texas. Right. Exactly. And and and I think it is important to paint that picture though, because the Rio Grande is a river, and especially. Off in places like big band. You have giant cliffs, it's it's it's a mountainous region, and the actual commerce does travel across these main bridges and main crossing points at our secure, and it's these rural areas that are really the the question Mark that representatives like will heard from Texas who's been giving a lot of interviews in his one of the few Republicans who voted to reopen. The government have been talking about where he represents one of those rural districts. Yeah. That's right. You know in in these rural districts are so much different than some of the bigger urban areas down here on the order. I mean, the rural areas are where the majority of this happens, and that's where it's so hard to control the illegal border crossings. I don't think there's many people down here that I've spoken with that deny the fact that there needs to be some type of protection and that the United States that need this to protect itself from illegal border crossings. There's certainly a lot of debate over how to do that. And I think that's the key here, right? In the middle of of the invective that comes out of DC is they're both sides have talked about border security both sides of voted for border security. The question becomes what does that look like in rural areas? And ultimately, that's what the debate is about. I I'm very curious to see how this is going to go today. And I'm sure you'll be reporting on and we'll get your updates later in reports, but Clayton Neville, Westwood One. Correspondent it is always great check in with you. And thanks for calling in from the border in Texas. All right. Appreciate it. Thanks so much Clayton. And ultimately, that's the key point. Here is rural Texas the urban interface areas already have fences and walls and whatnot where it is appropriate. That was done ten twelve years ago. Now, all of that has not even been finished yet from the two thousand six act. It's the rural areas and people like Representative will heard I heard an interview with him earlier today. Said in the rural areas, it's nonsensical. According to border agents to build large physical barriers, but they need technology. This is a Republican by the way, who represents the largest stretch over two hundred miles of border area in Texas is the Representative and he's Republican who represents the largest stretch in congress, and he's saying reopened the government. It's not all a wall. It's not even all offense use technology get border agents. And by the way, Democrats will get behind that and have been behind that. It's when you start saying, I need a wall and immigrants are horrible. We're crossing the Mark. Now, you're demonizing the other and you make it a moral question when you do that. Boy. All right. So if you'd like to talk about that more, I would love it. Otherwise, I wanna I wanna tell you well, oracle arena too. Because I do not understand. Why people are so upset not arena. It's oracle park. Excuse me. We're not talking about Oko, we're oracle park now instead of AT and T park people are flipping a lid because the name change for money of a ballpark. And I'm curious if you're upset about it and why four one five eight hundred eighty eight.

"Davis. And here's what's happening. President Trump on route to the southern border this hour in hopes of making a new case I border wall before he left Washington on Air Force One. He reiterated his point that a border wall is necessary to keep the country safe. He says he believes he does have the absolute right to declare a national emergency. When it comes to funding his wall. And if a deal doesn't end up working out with Democrats, he says he's almost definite that he'll do it. Mr. Trump met with congressional leaders yesterday. It was a pretty quick meeting. Democrats say the president had a temper tantrum he says, they blew it out of proportion. I didn't I didn't raise void that was a lie over in Washington today. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell pointing fingers at Democrats saying they approved similar structures like the border while under President Obama. But in return, minority leader Chuck Schumer accused the president of holding federal workers hostage is ridiculous. And it's cruel and it needs to end. Now right now earlier today, I spoke with ABC's Jim Ryan, he's in mcallen, Texas, where the president is expected to land soon the backdrop of Rio Grande valley behind Mr. Trump has he again appeals for funding to build a wall physical barrier between the two countries also the visual of him sitting there in a round table discussion with border patrol agents and local officials, but some local officials notably the mayor mcallen, Texas where I'm sitting right now cringe at the word crisis. When the units used to describe this region, they say that scares away tourist scares away businesses that it's hurting economy. Any of the Rio Grande valley?

"My question is. With the with the wall going up, and you got a few farmers that inherited land from two hundred years ago, and that's very, but I'm a farmer I live in Athens, Georgia, you know, he's got access to water. They can't block you from access to water. So if you build a wall, you can put an irrigation system that pumps water back to your cows. You're laying or whatever I don't understand the problem there. Don't let that. Block your mind thinking that it's not okay to build a wall. And it's crazy when we need the wall, and it's not gonna obscure the farmers in own that local Rio Grande area from having access to water main cattle don't walk into water. It's not like an ill. Yeah. This is. This is the problem is the the problem is that a win the when the government actually sent imminent domain notices, and they have done this. There's actually a great right up in the Washington Post about the farmers down there. The government wanting access to their land do the detailed surveys to build the wall. One of the issues is that win. They sh- presented the plan for what the wall would look like there was no way to access the river for irrigation or otherwise that was the hang one of the other hangups is that we do have a treaty with Mexico that limits. Our ability. The dam up existing non damned portions of the Rio Grande and there are times during the year where the flow of water headed out into the Gulf of Mexico from the Rio Grande slows to a very for to a trickle. And you would want to be able to dam up that to preserve enough water for pumps to capture and flow backup onto the land. And we don't have an existing treaty with Mexico to be able to do that. And that would have to be negotiated but the bigger problem for the farmers was that they weren't allowing access. They were cutting off farmland and that would be closer to the Rio Grande. And in addition, they weren't contemplating allowing farmers to be able to build any sort of creation channels piping or anything else to be able to get land. Get water out of the Rio Grande flowing back to the land. So you got that on you got that issue. Then you have the issue of not being able to dam up parts of the Rio Grande to be able to retain water. So that the channels would be able to flow through there. It's a little more complicated than just saying. Let's let them build an irrigation. Pipe and get the water other yo grand because the way the grant Rio Grande flows at certain times of the year. And why it doesn't flow at certain times of the year or? Yeah. All that being said, though. Put an door that seems like a no brainer. But the problem the farmers had in Texas again is that there was no contemplation for anything like that. It was going to be a at the time a solid wall with no way to get to their land on the other side of the wall. And if you can't get to the land on the other side of the wall at all whether to build an era Gatien piper maintain irradiation system, or what have you will? Then the land largely is useless for farm. You still got to be able to get there. Even if you put an integration system, you got to be able to get to the other side of the wall. If there's a clog or there's a pump that breaks or the rivers running so low that the journalism working, and none of that was contemplated in the paperwork. They were given by the federal government, which again is one of the reasons the president is moving towards the steel slat idea. And if he does that I I really would assume that they would contemplate putting gates in. So these farmers can actually get to the other side of the wall that seems to make sense something they would want. You do. Is fifty six after the hour. The full number is four zero four eight seven two zero seven five zero one eight hundred W S V talk. When we come back, the shutdown affects in Georgia..
