"You were down at the border, you're working with organizations. So I guess I'm still wanting to get at this idea of solidarity. So you're talking now about the solidarity that that created the caravan van that this is actually a Revolutionary Movement. It's not just, you know, people that are tattered, you know, kind of tattered and wandering, you know, in need a place to go in our desperate. It's intentional. It's it's organized. It's gotta politics that's being played out super compelling to think about, but then there's another layer of that solidarity in in that you went down there you were down at the border talk about a little bit for us about what kind of what's happening in that. And what you witnessed when you were down there in terms of people showing up for this crisis. Sure. I'm so I went with the new sanctuary coalition of New York who organized a forty days and forty. Nights. Caravan in the desert presence in desert at the border, which is obvious, you know, really redolent with biblical allusions. Right. So that's the new sanctuary movement. And it's important to say that there are very conscious way, of course, drying on the prior sanctuary movement of the nineteen eighties, which was predominantly it. Started in churches migrated to many different faiths communities into secular communities. It was an indigenous in Indian town, Florida digits nation. Indigenous folks worked for the mohawk nation of New York became a sanctuary community Jesse Jackson's push community in in Chicago became a sanctuary community. But this idea that and I think it's important to say that I see sanctuary as happening where politics stops functioning. So in the nineteen eighties. And in the present time, the the move of people who needed to claim asylum to come to America and claimed their internationally certified right to asylum was blocked by politics. So you know in the mentioning as you have about three percent of El and asking Chris Highland receiving it otherwise being treated like illegal undocumented migrants right now, you have this kind of crazy situation where everyone who comes to the border to ask her asylum. Immediately gets detained in the detention center. Many of them are held in or not allowed to cross the border with a new remain in Mexico policy, which was implemented in January after which is you can't even cross to ask you to San Mexico to your case gets hurt. And it's important say that Jefferson Beauregard sessions attorney general before he left do rational, the immigration judge personnel. So forty people a day are getting across. They're hearing. In two or three or four cases a day. There are eight thousand people just in Tijuana. So this is a crisis so sanctuary in the nineteen eighties and now comes in. When essentially our politics aren't functioning with other forms of solidarity. Like asylum is supposed to be is premised on an idea of international solidarity that comes out of the post nineteen forty five human rights United Nations, High commission on refugees moment, but it is not working at a stink deliberately disabled. So the new sanctuary coalition organized this caravan to meet the caravans, which is premised on a sanctuary movement idea that also well, one of its sources is Central America does idea of accompaniment, right? That people like me people who have immense privilege who have documents who have white skin privilege show with people who don't have access to those things. And witness and also, you know, we act as resources we talked to the people. But also, we show it's a visual politics to the regimes that are operative the Mexican immigration service and the department of homeland security of the United States that these are not isolated people that that we are with them that we, you know, it's not like, you know, asylum seekers are undocumented people are different from the rest of the human community. So it's sort of like, we're having a another form of this this function of solidarity just as the migrants joined together to walk north and hold hands when they cross rivers because it's easier not to drown. If you're if you're a human chain, we're offering the sexual caravan is offering working to meet you and continue that process, and it's important. You said that there's other organizations, but the sanctuary care then was a very short lived forty days in at the border. But there are other organizations like ultra lotto, Hispanic. A lot in the past week because it's it's become clear that the United States is keeping a database of activists. Our allow is is stationed in in in Tijuana. They they're doing legal advocacy and much the same kind of advocacy for asylum-seekers. There are a lot of groups. I've worked with another group border angel. It's based in San Diego that delivers resources, you know, clothing and other donating things to all the shelters and to wanna and also operates a post tension shelter in San Diego. So when people get out of detention, they have somewhere to go and there's help in networking with relatives and friends and then just figuring out what your license Quincy like. So there's a lot of organizations during that work, which is broadly sort of our. Whatever North American counterpoint to the solidarity being practice in the caravans, that's really powerful in in your in your Jewish currents piece. You talk about this idea of I think it's called on accompaniment, which is Google readily, Google Google, and I loved that you quoted Salvadoran archbishop us her Romero there talking about the US back civil war in El Salvador, when he said what the campesinos are doing is only Justin you should always be at their side with the national guard is likely to do as unjust if they attack you should be there next to the campesinos accompaniment them take the same risks. They do. And and you know, I really appreciate what you say is it's sanctuaries hap- happens when politics stops functioning. So what you're talking about is when you know, sort of national politics stop functioning in the way that they should. International politics. Stop functioning the way that they should I wanna come back to that. But I also want to kind of underline or or invite you to say more about a politics that's emerging because of this because I think that that there's something really really compelling about this idea of holding hands or the forty days and forty nights of of people coming together and making a new kind of politics on the ground, and you Matt were you able to meet people who were actually in the sanctuary caravan when you were down there did you at the border. Did you, you know, do you have any kind of first person insights on sort of what they were experiencing, and what that was because I can't even imagine do you know, what what they're going through especially with all the roadblocks at their that are getting thrown new new roadblocks thrown at them all the time. Yeah. So I I should preface by segments better is really rudimentry. So yes, I I was able to make people in an unsurprisingly. I had the most I was able to converse most deeply with people who are also speaking in Spanish as a second language because I'm working on it. So, but I did get to meet people. And and I think the first day I was there. I went to one of the big Kemp's. That's now close down by a towel, which is a former nightclub, and it was just this open arena. And I'm telling you this because it's hearsay because we weren't allowed into the refugee camp there were guards outside the camp. But what I heard about people were basically camping out in the muddy stadium like arena. So I drove there with in a caravan before angels, we have these cars that were stuffed with donations from America. We kind of flew down from San Diego wanna with these cars that were full of clothes and diapers and bedding. And we we were connected with one of the organizers of the of the caravan at towel Salvadoran guy who came out and met us, and what was really interesting to me. And really moving to me is we had these cars full of things that people really needed. Right. So people have walked with what they could carry and what they could carry was up in their children. Right. I met a woman who had a baby on the way. So we're not talking about like, you know, you're gonna move your furniture, even take clothing for all possible weather that you could make we're talking about people arriving with backpacks like most of us carry in our daily lives that are full of things, you know, they're they're that Pablo's on their hips or elders. You know, so you're you're don't have a lot of stuff. So a group of women approached me, and what pointing to my shoes. Sort. Of course, I'm like, what are you? What what do you mean about issues, and none of my shoes? So there's tremendous as people knew we were there. They sort of came out of where they were being kept where we were not allowed to enter and came out into the side street where we were parked and those an incredible sense of discipline and respect I was really struck by this because I had a sense from them. They were all closed, right? And but that they had a lot of needs. We had a car full of things, and they waited really patiently. Well, Victor and a couple of other folks sorted through the mind up people were assigned. I have no idea how this happened like you get the neck pillow. You get the parka. You get the diapers. And some of that is obvious. But it really isn't quite who needs the neck pillow more than someone else with incredible amounts of patients and respect. And I think that's speaks to this this self organization and kind of discipline like if we're going to survive, we left we had the car open wheel had our person in the car. We were standing around talking to people nobody made any diets for anything including and this is sort of moving and might of what's going on our passports, which the two women driving driving their passports on the front seat. You know? And like, I think if you listen to the official rhetoric about that on a desperate people, and blah, blah, blah. You would take like the last thing you do is your passport in an open car inside of forty of these people, but nobody much as open the car. So I went back into the car a couple of times to get things, you know, to look for things where people are getting fed up my purse and people would like wait patiently. Right. And like, I think that's only surprising in light of how horrible the rhetoric about. These people is on the other hand. I think it's surprising in light of the kind of needs. They're experiencing so. The other day that I spent a lot of time if migrants was I got to do accompaniment, which is what I see as the new sanctuary coalition signal contribution. And as you point out this comes from a lot of struggle sources archbishop Romero, I've found evidence of accompaniment in the abolition..

War and El Salvador on Sunday pope Francis made Romero a Saint along with Pope Paul, the sixth and five others wearing the blood-stained rope belt that Romero war when he was assassinated. Pope Francis who's originally from Argentina, which praising Romero for just regarding his own life to be close to the poor and to his people. Human. It is wonderful that together with Pope Paul, the sixth and the other new saints. Today, there's archbishop Romero who left the security of the world, even his own safety in order to give his life according to the gospel, close to the poor to his people with heart drawn to Jesus and his brothers and sisters only weeks before has assassination archbishop Romero in a letter to president. Jimmy Carter calling him not to provide military aid to the right wing Salvadoran military government. Then in the archbishop's final, a now famous sermon. He made a direct appeal to Salvadoran soldiers to lay down their weapons. In his name in the name of our tormented. People who've suffered so much and whose laments cry out to heaven. I am luring. I beg you order stop the repression. The next day, a driver and a gunman pulled up in a red. Volkswagen Passat outside of the church were archibishop Romero is giving this the gunman fired a single shot from the car, killing Romero Romero's murder was one of the most shocking of the long conflict between series of US-backed governments and leftist rebels in which thousands of dissidents and every day civilians and Salvador were killed by right wing and military death squads activists continue to call for Justice and Romero's assassination last year, a Salvadoran, judge reopened. The case for more we're joined by Matt is in Brant human rights lawyer, author of a SAS ination of Saint the plot to murder Oscar Romero in the quest to bring his killers to Justice. The book won the two thousand seventeen Honey Mendez book award for human rights in Latin America is in Brent served on the trial team that brought the only court verdict ever reached for Romero's murder. Welcome to democracy now that it's great to have you with us joining us from British Columbia. Can you talk about what happened to Oscar Romero who is responsible for his assassination. Romero was killed by a desk wa that was was headed by Roberto Dhabi's, and it was a very important military intelligence figure in El Salvador in the late seventies who was backed by some of the wealthiest families in all Salvador who were very outspoken against archbishop Romero for his kind of nation of the repression that they underwrote in El Salvador and the murder occurred. As you were just saying a day after Ramirez, most strident call in his homily to stop the repression. And so the this desk wide carried out his murder and Roberto Dobson, rather than ending up in jail. Ended up becoming one of the most powerful political figures in all Salvador throughout the night. Nine hundred eighty s Dow Jones relationship with the US government and with the school of the Americas at Fort Benning, Georgia, Madison, Brent. So I mean, there's there's a long history of US government training of Salvadoran military officials. Dobson did attend international police academy in Washington DC, and there was some connection to the school of the Americas. Now, his training, as far as I know, was not as extensive as some of the other connections to to even higher ranking Salvadoran military figures, but certainly his he, he did have some connections to the US government and he and his political backers had close connections to politicians and political groups in in Washington DC. And it's also important to note that that the death squad that Dobson headed and other desk. Quads el-salvador occurred. Erred as a result of US policy. Starting back in the nineteen sixties of training, Latin American militaries. And so there there is US responsibility in terms of building up that structure that that led to the death squad and the just horrific violence that occurred and also at that time, and that is in Brent your response to the pope, making us go Romero a Saint and what this means is thousand celebrated el-salvador. Tremendously important moment for el-salvador and and for this Romero's canonization took decades and for it to finally happen. And for him to be declared a Saint is it cannot be overstated how important this is for El Salvador and just really a tremendous tremendous moment, not it wouldn't be regardless four l. Salvador, but especially after decades of resistance to him being declared a Saint, both in the Vatican and l. Salvador for for his cause to finally overcome. All of these challenges is is tremendously important. But I also do make the note that as as big an achievement in his important day, as it was yesterday for Salvador, there's still a second piece which is Justice for his killers and to this point other than the civil lawsuit that I was involved in. In the United States against one of his killers, nobody has been held accountable for his killing and no one. His has gone to jail El Salvador or even been put on trial there. So there's the second as important as the candidate was. There is now the second piece that has to be achieved after all these years. We're gonna do park discussion, posted web exclusives at democracy. Now, dot org is in Brent's. Please stay with us, author of SAS nation of Saint.

"Do. President Trump will be campaigning for Republicans this weekend, and he will visit Kentucky. The president will be in the congressional district from which morning edition team is reporting this morning. We're in Lexington, Kentucky after spending days, listening to voters, including Allen hall z. who was editor of a rural newspaper called the swift creek Currier, and he will be at the Trump rally. I was actually Trump voter was and I'm able form again, I'm gonna arrangement to see him this weekend. Are you ready? I won't get show. Maybe I won't get shot. He says halls e is deciding if he will support the president's favoured congressional candidate. The incumbent Andy Barr. Now Halsey is conservative, but says he also prefers divided government, Kentucky as a red state, but also a state where teachers protested a Republican governor this year and Audrey long is one of those who held up signs at the state capital. We talked over dinner in Lexington, did those protests caused some. Teachers to become more politically active than they would've? Oh, heck, yes. Oh, heck yes. If I remember correctly, it's more teachers running for state office this year than ever before. Now we've met dozens of people in three corners of this district, poor rural county, upscale horse track Keeneland and a historic lack neighborhood. Now we're gonna talk over what we found with Emily bowl. You who a political science professor at the university of Kentucky. Good morning, welcome combined. I guess we should just mention. We have a few friends with us here. Broom-wagon bikes and coffee. Would you let the country know you're here guys. All right. And let's just ask about this district. We're in the sixth district, what would make this district competitive in such a red state? Well, that's interesting. So historically, Kentucky follows a pattern of other southern states in that even as these states trended Republican, the national level, particularly for presidential elections Democrats retained strong control at the state level. And so we've seen districts like the sixth able to move back and forth. You've got some more conservative Democrats something else going on here as well. We're in a very modern and urban place in a city and increasingly diverse place. The teacher we heard from teaches English as a second language and get students coming from all over the world. Lexington, Kentucky, yes. Is there a divide between rural and urban in a place like this? If we just drive an hour to the east in the mountains, I feel like we're in a very different world. It is what you have. Different types of rural here in Kentucky, right? We have the horse industry which brings a certain type of rural, and then we have as you move further east more impoverished rural community. That's places where you've got small hollows as they call them small farms or nothing, particularly going on and tremendous problems with drugs and other issues. There's an economic divide as well, right? This is a very prosperous city that we're in and a place of education. How big a place does the university of Kentucky hold in this? Not that you're biased rent, not at all. The university of Kentucky is is the largest industry here in Lexington, along with suppliers like Toyota manufacturers, Toyota and lex, Mark, and the bourbon industry, the bourbon industry. That's really interesting. Isn't that industry being affected by tariffs, president, Tump Trump impose tariffs, and you now have Europeans imposing tariffs on Kentucky bourbon. There are concerns about the tariffs? Yes. So how are the candidates navigating these divides? We have Andy Barr Republican. We have Amy McGrath de. McCray running for office for the first time. So Amy McGrath is definitely appealing to that more centrist democratic tendency that we see here trying to emphasize some of the economic issues. And how does Andy Barr pushback by questioning the extent to which McGrath is a centrist ochre. And one final question. How popular does it feel to you that President Trump is in the state of Kentucky. It depends on who you. Deeply divided, but he did receive sixty two percent of the vote in this state and sixty eight percent of this congressional district. I think Emily bowl you of the university of Kentucky. Thanks so much. All right. Looking ahead now to the weekend on Sunday, nearly forty years after he was assassinated. While saying, mass Salvadoran archbishop Oscar Romero will be canonized by the Vatican you see us at ASEAN play offs. For the goose. The s p was at a time of so much confusion in anguish. I want to be a messenger, a hope in the midst of tragedy. Let's shake there is I bid on archbishop Romero constantly spoke against the violence that was tearing his native, El Salvador apart in the nineteen seventies his radio, broadcasts, demanding social Justice, reached hundreds of thousands of people, but his wars also angered the country's military rulers and Danny, hey, Jack, is with me. He's one of our producers morning edition. He's been reporting on Romero good morning any, hey, no. What did you learn about Oscar Romero? Well, he was a fighter for Justice and they called him the voice of the voiceless this was a time when l. Salvador's military regime which was supported by the United States killed kidnapped and tortured civilians. Many of them, the poorest in society, Patricia. Morales TA. Reno who met archbishop Romero just before his death says his preaching defended the most vulnerable, the people failed protected by him. That protection was the power of his words. And so- Romero ran this commission that investigated human rights abuses and every Sunday during mass. He named victims of murder and the countless who disappeared. And it was incredibly dangerous for him to do that in his homilies were broadcast on the radio in the became sort of like. Newscasts for the poor. I talked with Franciscan brother, Tovey Duran in Houston, work at the Catholic radio station in sunset, Vidor everybody. Everybody was listening. Including his enemies and he had many enemies. Who were they? El Salvador's oligarchy the military. They were threatened by Romero because he openly talked about these injustices and he and powered the poor to do something about it. And he died for that in March of nineteen eighty. While he was saying mass at this little hospital chapel in San Salvador, he was shot at the altar by a gunman from right wing desk. What? Why did it take almost forty years for Romero to be canonized will Romero's always been controversial, especially within the Catholic church. He supported the poor. He was critical of the government. So he was accused of being a communist which he was not. But his cause for sainthood was stalled by the Vatican for years because of that Vatican officials said he was too aligned with the that promoted the cause for social Justice. But put Francis finally changed that in this is huge for El Salvador. It's a country with one of the highest murder rates in the world. So Oscar Romero. Those words are just as relevant now as they were thirty years ago. A fascinating man and some fascinating reporting NPR's Danny. Hey, Jack, Denny. Thanks so much. Thank you.
