Before tomorrow, California has been slow to distribute federal funds meant to help printers that may miss out and so much so that they may miss out on the next round of federal assistance. That's the finding of an audit of the Department of Housing and Community Development. California was given 1.8 billion to help out renters who are struggling to pay rent because of covid lockdowns in their state. But if California doesn't identify individuals who will get the remaining money in that fund by September, 30th, the state will lose out on an additional 337 million in federal funds. Well, it's not just California, South Carolina is another example. Where They basically are just now distributing this federal aid, and they basically are also saying that The red tape and what I read. The red tape is what's basically slowing this entire process, But they've got to make sure that they're not just handing this money out to folks who don't qualify, right.

When asked later at a press conference about her uncivil behavior in the bar, the mayor said, quote it was a man who disrespected me and I spoke up for myself as I was raised to do. There was nothing in this video. That was disrespectful to the mayor. Other than the fact he asked the question. The only thing is disrespectful was the mayor itself.

"So right now. There are fifteen thousand kids minors in the custody of the us federal government. So many they have to move them up to dallas hundreds of miles away from the border and put them in a convention center. That's trump's fault. It's just it's when you hear pelosi and these people say that that should anger you. I mean if a person lies to my face it angers me and it should anger. You remember barney frank.

Some heartbreaking scenes down there right now and a lot of the migrants coming in saying they're coming in because you promised to make things better. It seems to be getting worse by the day wasn't a mistake not to anticipate this urge. First of all there was a surge the last two years and nineteen and twenty th. There was a surge as well.

Because i i heard the other day that they're they're coming because i'm a nice guy and i won't. Yeah well. here's the deal. they're not. The adults are being sent back number one number two. What do you do with unaccompanied child comes to the border to repeat. What trump did you take them from their mothers. Okay here's the deal. Nobody's taking anybody from their mothers. Because seventy five percent of the miners coming over are between fifteen and seventeen years old and they're males now stephanopoulos. Should've known that would mean taking away. The mothers you think these are kindergarten kids walking across the rio grande river. Is that what you think. Seventy five percent of fifteen seventeen years old under men george. So there's biden know that i don't know what biden knows. It's my job as a journalist to find out. I would say mr president you. Are you wanna wear that. Seventy five percent are males in their late teens. You're not taking them away from their mothers mothers. Have nothing to do with this. Somebody number two. We are in the migrate zone. Still go i can say quite clearly. Don't come and we're we're in the process of getting set up and it's not going to take a whole long. Time is to be able to apply for asylum in place.

And I would question why do I have to cross these like a criminal and we had to stream the Rio Grande river is called. Big river. Yeah. That you cross big. I I cross through Texas, and it was huge, and he was dangerous in how to swim. And I I was afraid and day let you cross the river. But let go of you once you cross the river, the guys they don't have control anymore. So I was a kid. You goal is to swim to the other side. But as you're swimming across the river, there's helicopters going around you hear dogs barking from the border patrol the US border patrol. And then there's spotlight's going on. You know, is terrifying. Because you're literally breaking a national or federal law. Obviously, I didn't know at the time. Yeah. But you're like literally like a federal criminal in a way, you don't know that because all you go into your parents risking your life to not dying your country. And that's why it's traumatic for me because I've been through the worst way, you know, that immigrants can calm and. To these. I remember it sounded Holly helicopters and the dogs. And when I reached he'll this I liked out. I don't remember what happened that just remember waking up in the desert almost dead and being picked by a border patrol agent, which was really nice to me and gave me water in brought me to presell Dewan be seeing lately on the news with a loon aluminum foil grandkids that existed back into six that's not a reason. That's not our thing. That's just happened that the problem here is that Americans are just being exposed to it. So many people are like what the heck is going on in the border know, this has been going on for a while since the Bush administration or even before that. But you know, it just happens to be public now because of social media. So I was you know, some people told me that oh it's fake. Those photos are manipulated. And I'm like I actually was in those prisons sales their cages like. Until I was taking by a border patrol to that prison sale until they were able to contact my parents and pretty much to my parents while. Okay. And so why did they send you to your parents? Instead of saying, hey, you gotta go home. So there's a lot of policy that goes with the whole story at the time remember policy changes constantly to the border at the time. The Bush administration was allowing kids under the age of fifteen I think to appeal their case if they reached the border, so if you reached the border as a kid from Honduras, or specifically they were not allowing the Mexican kids the same way they were allowing hundreds..

"Act has passed ninety. Two finally repeals the remnants of the free white persons restriction, the naturalization act of seventeen. They waited all the way till nineteen fifty two to get rid of the white white person language. All right. All right, we'll contains it. However, this act remained the quota system affectively band, nearly all immigration from Asia, except for those small annual quotas for few years, the massive influx of Hispanic workers starting to create a lot of public backlash. And then one of the most racist sounding programs in American political history is launched in nineteen fifty four. Now now, nineteen fifties is when the the. Anti latte. Immigration movement really starts to pick up steam ninety four operation wetback is launched. I'm not kidding. I'm not making that up. The racial epithet wetback used to describe Mexicans who legally entered Texas by crossing the Rio Grande river real grand river operation went back. I feel terrible saying that that's actual name of this operation launched by the Eisenhower administration, the largest mass deportation program in American history as many as one point, three million Hispanic immigrants who did not return home after their visas had expired rounded up and deported with the help of the Mexican government, which one of these people come back to help alleviate labor shortage border patrol agents and local officials used military techniques and engage in a coordinated tactical operations or moved the immigrants along the way. They used a widespread kind of racial stereotypes to justify their sometimes brutal treatment of the immigrants inside the US and anti-american sentiment is pervasive. Now, harsh portrayals Mexican immigrants are being thrown. Has being dirty disease bearing and irresponsible, the anti Mexican racism still exists very strong many places. Yeah, reached a fever pitch in nineteen fifties. Anti Asian sentiment is decreasing anti Hispanic sentiment increasing during operation wetback tens of thousands of immigrants shoved into buses boats planes sent off an unfamiliar parts of Mexico where they struggle to rebuild their lives in Chicago three planes a week. We're filled with immigrants and flown to Mexico in Texas, twenty five percent of all the immigrants deported were crammed into boats boats that were later compared to slave ships. People dying sunstroke disease other causes while in custody all to remnant reminiscent in some ways of some of the current current immigration situations regarding immigrants nineteen sixty five things get a little better. The immigration nationally-active nineteen sixty five past aka the Hart celler act man, longtime, democratic, New York, congressman Emanuel celler sponsored another Bill, alleviating racial discrimination. When it came to immigration is a good man. He was. Born in Brooklyn eighteen eighty eight died in Brooklyn Ninety-one. Age ninety two went to went to Columbia in Manhattan. Got lottery from Columbia, dude, never left New York City. We did a lot of good for the country's the whole. This act removed. Racial language from previous immigration laws got rid of the ban on various Asian and Middle Eastern nations should be noted though that held a ban on homosexuals still classifying them as mentally defective and suffering from the constitutional psychopathic inferior. Already. The new law did maintain per country limits. Immigration also created a preference visa categories. The focus on immigrants skills and family. Relationships with citizens are US residents. The Bill set numerical restrictions on visas at one hundred seventy thousand per year with the per country of origin quota. However, immediate relatives, US citizens and special imigrants had no restrictions. Some of the special immigrants included ministers, foreign poise, the US government for medical graduates among others. This this act significantly altered US racial composition prior nineteen, sixty five. The demographics of immigration. Stood at mostly Europeans. It was sixty eight percent of legal immigrants than I came from Europe and Canada. However, in the three years or soobee in the years three in the twenty years twenty one years actually nineteen seventy one to nineteen ninety one immigrants from Hispanic and Latin American countries made forty seven point nine percent of the amendments, Mexico accounting for twenty three point, seven percent and immigrants from Asia thirty. Five point. Two percent not only did this change the ethnic makeup of immigration. It also greatly increased the number of immigrants immigration constituted eleven percent of the total US population growth between nineteen sixty nine hundred seventy growing up to thirty three percent from nineteen seventy nine hundred eighty and thirty nine percents from nine hundred eighty two nineteen ninety or yeah, a lot of numbers numbers, man. So far right arm you guys, but they started confused me after a while too many. Let's take a break..
