Do the moral of national shame of the previous administration that literally not figuratively river children from the arms of their families and their mothers and fathers at the border and with no plan none whatsoever to reunify children still custody and and their parents. The second action addresses the root causes of our migration to our southern border and the third action. The third order. I'm going to be signed orders. A full review of the previous administrations harmful and counterproductive immigration policies. Basically across the board. One new order establishes a task force to reunify migrant families separated under trump's zero tolerance policy. It'll be led by homeland security secretary a hundred my orcas who was confirmed tuesday by the senate as the first latin necks and immigrant to lead the department. Arcus was born in havana. Cuba is the son of jewish. Cuban refugees from the holocaust biden also ordered a review of the trump policy known as remain in mexico that requires non mexican migrants to stay in. Mexico is their immigration cases wine through court and has left tens of thousands of asylum seekers waiting in dangerous conditions along the border. This is asylum. Seeker marlins speaking to the advocacy group. People without borders boy both in front tariffs about facing homelessness with their family after being sent to mexico most vividly remember when we arrived to the immigration office mexico. They didn't give us a place to sleep or anything to eat. Our children's slept on the floor. That night this comes as immigration and customs enforcement. Ice has deported. Hundreds of immigrants in recent days despite biden's coal for moratorium including a survivor of the two thousand nine thousand nine hundred mass shooting at the el paso texas walmart.

Am my staff woke to an urgent call. Suddenly and in the dead of night ice was set to deport. Rockland county's beloved paul peerless. To haiti a country where he has never been unquote for more. We're joined by two guests in tijuana mexico. Eric opinion does with us an immigration attorney and the policy director for a low laval in english the other side also with us out of bogado senior reporter veal from the center for investigative reporting. We welcome you both to democracy now auto. let's begin with you. Can you explain what's going on. You have these executive actions that are extremely important including one that calls for a halt to deportations. This is the president of the united states and yet hundreds of people have been deported under this new administration. What is going on having me amy. What we're seeing is quite a departure from the previous administration. I don't want a discount. The importance appearances the importance of the way that the president of this country talks about in human being including people who may be detained or deported. we're also seeing a lot of really great language and the commission of a task force Another order to suspend deportations and yet we see a continuation of the same practices that happened under president trump previously endure obama. And i do think that there's a difference. There's absolutely a difference in tone but what we're seeing is for example with the commission of the tasks worse receiving. Dha outing which is at the same agency that separated children at the border. Now tasked with figuring out where where. These families aren't so little unclear. What will happen after that. And i think that a lot of people that have been talking to in in the last day or so since the executive orders announced it doesn't really go far enough and also sets a commission in in some cases a task force for something that allowed people voted on the biden ticket as sort of stood against all of that stood against those families operations to the that we now need a task force to figure out how to move forward with having something in place when by also has the house and the senate of rings hollow from people. Erica i wanted to ask you about your clients. Alvero and his son alvarado junior who just turned nine years old. The little boy said all he wants for his birthday is to be reunited with his father. They've been separated since he was six years old. This is auto speaking to nbc news about the day. The two were separated. An officer told me. Give me your children's things because you are going to different places. And i didn't know what was going to happen to my child. So erica pineyro if you can talk about among the executive orders are this issue of separation. The hundreds over six hundred children still left. It's believed Separated from their parents. In some cases the administration doesn't even know where the parents are in hundreds of cases. They may well be in the united states and another few hundred they may be outside the united states but i mean clearly biden is put a top priority on this because the people serving on this committee or the secretary of homeland security. My arcus just confirmed the secretary of health and human services the former attorney general of california bestseller and the attorney general yet to be confirmed and first lady joe biden.
"rockland county" Discussed on The Lead with Jake Tapper
"The virus wins cash unfortunately. I don't believe that they're taking this seriously as they need to. Especially because in Tuscaloosa and probably like law places in Alabama, the spread has been eysenck. Just about an hour outside New York City health officials in Rockland County, investigating a new cluster of covid cases linked to a party county officials, issuing fines and subpoenas to compel people to speak to contact tracers. We are deadly serious I will not allow. That to have the help of our county compromise because of insurance, stupidity opposites, a doctor Fauci bluntly ask today if the US is winning the war against the corona virus. You've been losing this battle avenue recently. Admittedly, yes, we have. We cannot give up because it appears that we're losing the battle. And a little bit more from Dr Falcon Jake late today he gave an interview where we talked more about the potential for vaccine and projections projections going forward. He said they should know by a winter or by early twenty twenty one, if they have a safe and effective vaccine in already, Jake, there were discussions among health officials about who would be the first to get it first responders, probably those over the age of sixty five, those in long term care facilities, but obviously I think. I you have to get that effective vaccine jake. That's right Jason Carroll thanks so much. Let's bring in CNN's chief medical correspondent Dr Sanjay Gupta Sanjay. There's this new study out today that shows a new mutation of the novel Corona Virus that makes the virus more infectious, although just as deadly, not more deadly. What can you tell us about this? Think the last points, probably the most critical point while it makes it more likely to spread. It doesn't appear to make it more lethal. Jake we had some hints of this before. We knew that there was a different strain that was primarily coming out of Asia and different strain that was primarily coming out of Europe in fact, if you look at the eastern part of the United States versus the western part of the United States, probably different versions of the virus were affecting this. It appears to be a mutation in what is known as the spike protein that is the protein that allows these viruses to enter the cell and allows them to replicate more easily inside the cell, but I think the two critical points is while it may make it more likely to spread. It does not appear more lethal and also doesn't seem to affect a possible future vaccine. It's not a big enough mutation that should affect that Jake. We've heard president. Trump say that the more testing we do, the more cases we get, and that makes the country look bad at a Senate hearing today. Trump's testings are admiral J. Watt said. This surge cannot just be attributed to more testing listen. There is no question that the more testing you get, the more you will uncover, but we do believe this is a real increase. In cases because the percent positive are going up, so this is real increases in cases. I guess it's notable that somebody telling the truth about this virus. Is News Worthy, but we did want to point that out. Yeah I mean. That is obviously in direct opposition to what we've heard recently, the narrative has been you test more. You'RE GONNA. FIND MORE CASES MAKES US look bad. That's not the case I mean it's counterintuitive, perhaps, but as you test more ultimately, you should have less fewer cases because you isolate people, you quarantine them and that's how you break the transmission spread I don't know if we have the graphs. Of Texas, but you can see you know. We have looked at what's been going. Going on, we know the number of cases have been going up Texas, but what's been happening, there is that the positivity rate has hovered pretty high around fifteen percent, or so over the last few days that that's that's too high. That means as a means. You're testing more you. There's evidence of greater spread than you realized so you're not just going up because of the testing. You're going up. Because the virus has spread more, you need that positivity to be closer to five percent or so. And Sanjay Dr. Faculty acknowledged today that the mixed messaging on masks from a for officials in the early days of the pandemic might have set the US back, and that the never really fully shutdown during the shutdown to get the virus under control. How concerned are you about where the US is right now in battling this virus? Well, you know. I'm I'm pretty concerned. I realized Jake that we still have many tools. You know basic public health tools that can make a huge difference. I mean and I've been talking about some of these for months now. And they can make a big difference. I will you know I think Dr Fauci and others concede that at the beginning of this pandemic there was a lot of things about this virus that we didn't know it was a novel Corona Virus, so think things were being learned along the way, but I think there was some some pretty basic rules that were put into place win. Should Estate Reopen Dr? FAO She talked about the fact that fifty percent of the country really. Really didn't shutdown. That's a problem because other countries did shut down and had tremendous success, but then when should they open if you look at Texas again? You know one of the basic rules was that you had to have fourteen days of downward trend before you started to open so here? Jake are the fourteen days before Texas opened. We just want to pull the data. They opened up, may I? That was planned to open on. May first closed on March thirtieth. I mean, Jake. The numbers speak for themselves. That is part of the reason we're in this problem and part of those guidelines also said if you go up five days in a row, you probably need to go back into shutdown mode, so some states are hitting those those benchmarks as well. We should point out Sanjay you and I were. For this out at the time, they were reopening even though they were violating all of the gateway suggestions from the coronavirus task force. We were saying they have not met those criteria. And here we are with an explosion of new cases, and in some cases in some states, an explosion of hospitalizations and sadly deaths. That I mean that was the reason you had the criteria and it seemed like they were thrown out the window. Almost as quickly as they were released, they were just put. The name only to sort of get the sense that here they are, but you don't really have to follow them. The reason you want fourteen day downward trend is that that gets you down to a manageable level of new infections. If you get that manageable level, then you can isolate then you can quarantine contacts. All of that with the numbers are as high as they are. It's just it's tough to do jake. Also at the Senate hearing today health and Human Services official, leading the efforts for vaccine, said the US could have more than one corona virus vaccine by by early next year. Are you encouraged? Are you optimistic? Jake. This is a deep area of reporting for us. We've been talking to lots of sources and the company's at the NIH and you hurt Francis Collins talk about this today. WHO's the head of the NIH? Being very optimistic about the saying, it's going to happen. There are several different vaccine platforms that are being worked on Some are progressing more rapidly than others, but but.

I'm always hoping that it'll be calls me or anything like that. So I can get my morning and evening fixes. Oh, michael. That's so nice. I wish we can say you win a tote bag just for that. But we can't. Okay. I'm kidding. So tells us your least favorite thing. Oh, my least favorite is the fact that I leave in the dark at least in the winter months. I believe in the dark and come home in the dark, and that's just it's really depressing. Oh, yeah. I know it's the worst thing that happens is it just part of the year that you're stuck in the darker. Is there a time of year where she just part of the air? I'm usually home. I usually run quarter of seven in the morning, and I'm usually home, you know, six thirty seven at night. I mean, it's a long day all but coming home in the summer. My kids are always outside playing. I have you know, a little bit of property little front yard backyard. And I have kids that are always outside playing.

"You get into sake western per se orange Putnam Rockland county's or the why this is from the weather service morning, there could be a light wintry. Mix a little spotty light snow or freezing drizzle. I haven't seen anything verify yet. But that could be the only problem this morning in around the city. I mean, even in parts of northeast jersey, we're in the forty s low forty. We've got to worry about anything and mild and wet will be the forecast early dominating weather over the next five days or more. And it does look like we'll get more rain back in here. We're kind of split today. Snow in the Adirondacks this morning rain, south of Washington DC out across the soggy southeast. You talk about range L for twenty eighteen some spots in North Carolina had over one hundred inches of rain God. Yeah. Just an incredible go east. I know I know it doesn't have anywhere left to go. They've got more rain in. But our rain coming in will be tomorrow night into Saturday. Temperatures will stay well, but freezes I don't think we've got any frozen precept to worry about now even further north country need, oh my bias there. Joe? I'm a snow lover got a trip coming up in a couple of weeks. They are dancing for snow trying to get a snow dance for the snowmobilers skiers up north and even with this system coming in over the weekend looks like it's going to say south of the places that really want snow. So we do have clouds in this morning, but son developing this afternoon, we'll do about forty seven. That's almost ten degrees above normal tonight. Thirty five that's seven above average, suburbs might depend on the twenty s Friday looks pretty good. If you don't want snow. You don't have it. Sunshine, some clouds forty eight. It's Friday night at Saturday. We'll have rain developing as low pressure comes out of the south and most of the rain from about New York City Long Island in north jersey and south so it'll be a sharp cutoff. As you go north, what will have rain, and where we won't and that rain will be with a Saturday tapering off towards Saturday evening. Saturday's highs. In the mid forties. Upper forties. Maybe fifty degrees on Sunday considerably cloudy and colder more seasonable on Monday, Joe as we get back into the upper thirties thick as we go through next week. Joe we'll probably see more seasonable air than we will mild air. It may be getting into a little bit colder weather pattern. But that may only bring us back down to the call average for this time of year, which is in the upper thirty. All right. Thank you. Right.
