It's extreme can be up to the court. Yes. Senator Richard Shelby, Alabama. It should be when he was a democrat. He actually. Support an act and the Senate to codify intially abortion. Now, he is pro-life Republican Alabama where headed, I think that you see, so many Republicans responding this way, it was not just Shelby was McCarthy. It was Ron McDonnell ram president the president because they understand that this could fundamentally change the balance of passions in the culture wars in this country, Chuck, I covered the women's March, and I also covered moderate Republican women who believed that Trump would never be a threat to abortion rights. Well, these laws that are passing are not just passing in one state. They're passing in multiple states with no exceptions for rape. Incest is not just Alabama. I think this is a potential for Democrats to reach out to these moderates, by the way, number of them actually did vote for Democrats in the twenty mid-term elections. But for moderate, suburban women, this is going to be an issue foreshore, especially if these laws key.

Pressure On China To Agree To Trade Deal
"Radio. Even though we have a lot of liquidity offline from may happy made if you are taking today off there still some selected assets that are trading and some important events to look ahead to US equity futures advancing then he had apples upbeat forecasts. Traders expecting lower volumes throughout the day. Then bit of movement coming through in terms of US equity futures higher. You've got a bit of movement on the ASX two hundred straight up about eight tenths of one percent. Other than that. It's pretty quiet on the equity side in terms of the handover overnight. We did have course, they Tekere innings more generally with apple but also a little bit of a well, it was a weight on the shoulders from Google corporate earnings and develop the trade conflict between the US and China remain front and center, that's for sure I mean, running through some of the currency pairs here. You're looking here the Bloomberg dollar index. That's just barely about the flat line here quiet on the Major's front. So I mean, pretty much all of these pairs unchanged. Eurodollar one twelve twenty Donnie in one hundred and eleven fifty and cable is up less than a tenth of one percent. Short of one thirty fifty five commodities are on the pressure a little bit. Brent crude Coney down six tenths of one percent. We have higher inventories out of the US and the initial data overnight. Gold is lower by three tenths of one percent. So the metals on the pressure let me run through some of the news as well. In terms of the corporate earnings because we are getting of course, quite a few fast and furious start off with Sainsbury's fiscal year revenue at twenty nine point zero one billion pounds. You're looking here at fiscal year sales of thirty two point four one billion pounds to final dividend. Shares going to be seven point nine Pence. Few notes on guidance year Sainsbury saying the consumer outlook continues to be uncertain and that they are well-placed to navigate the external environment. So that's on the Sainsbury's front more retail input from next currently first quarter retail sales coming through a negative three point six percent. The market was looking for actually more of a contraction here down six point two one percents of slightly better than some of the analysts had pencilled in. I go to online sales eleven point eight percents the estimate heroes for twelve point eight percent. And so a little bit of a little bit better on the retail sales. But a little bit short of estimates on the online sales on guidance. They're still seeing fiscal year pre-tax at seven hundred and fifty million pounds and still see full price sales at up one point seven percent. And then also on the economic front. We've got some UK April house prices. They're up zero point four percent on the month. That's the nationwide. Up zero point nine percent on the years that is some economic input as well. So that's a bit of a flavor then on what's happening with these corporate earnings. Let's get now to some of the stories we're watching very carefully starting off with what's happening with the United States and China. The White House is ramping up pressure on China to reach a trade deal in the next two weeks. Bloomberg daybreak Asia anchor Bryan Curtis has more from Hong Kong, the US said once again, he would walk away from the talks if no deal, Mick Mulvaney, President Trump's acting chief of staff said negotiations would not go on forever. So the administration is making its impatience known a slight shift from the earlier more optimistic messaging still going into talks today. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the US side had a nice working dinner last night with vice-president Leo hub, two of the quick notes. The F T says the US is likely to accept a watered-down commitment from China on security that to speed up a deal and. And Chinese regulators said today, both Chinese and foreign banks will no longer be subject to ownership caps on local banks Kong, Bryan Curtis. Bloomberg daybreak Europe. That means on world financial markets away. Today's Federal Reserve announcement on the US interest rates. Bloomberg's Michael Mckee has a preview. This fed meeting is widely expected to be a nun event except for that little possibility of a rate cut. No, not a policy cut to the fence target. But an adjustment to the rate of interest. The central Bank pays banks on excess reserves the effective federal funds rate traded a record five basis points above the excess reserves rate Tuesday most traders blamed technical rather than policy issues such as a rise in repo rates on other securities that suggests the fed doesn't need to do anything others note, though, it's been an ongoing problem and forecast a slight cut in the rake in Washington, Michael Mckee, Bloomberg daybreak Europe. And as the central Bank meant to weigh monetary policy. Donald Trump sought to pressure the fed to make drastic moves to boost and already healthy US economy in a pair of tweets Tuesday. Trump criticized the fed for having incessantly lifted interest rates and wonderfully low inflation Colfer steep interest rate cut and the resumption of bond purchases as well. The thing with the theme. The president's comments came as another political drama swirled around the central Bank on Capitol Hill Trump's plan nomination. He recalls Stephen Moore to the fed sports looks increasingly uncertain as a third Republican Senator voices downs. The story from Bloomberg's Charlie Pellett. Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. A key ally of the president told reporters that Moore would be quote, a very problematic nomination, though, he has not made up his mind. Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa and Senator Richard Shelby of Alabama on Monday voice. Their own concerns about more a Heritage Foundation fellow and a former Trump campaign adviser Ernst the senate's fourth ranking Republican told reporters, quote, I am not enthused about what he has said in various articles later, Monday Shelby. The former chairman of the banking committee said he thought the proposed nomination, quote has some problems Charlie Pellett. Bloomberg daybreak Europe. That's something singing. Singapore where Mark Cranfield and markets live team joins us, Mark. Let's start off with the mlive question of the day. The fed odds in terms of the likelihood of a move very contradictory and not really in line with what we're seeing the job market. Yes. Good morning, certainly the market by some as strong as it's been since the nineteen sixties in the United States pretty healthy condition. We've also saying some pretty good wage growth as well. Even though it hasn't really fit injuring flation too much. So Fava certainly in the GDP data from Las week, as well already know the picture is pretty healthy economy. We go to started go to the payrolls not becoming up on Friday, and the fed will certainly be thinking about this as well because it probably reinforce this very strong picture of job market. So when you have that in the background certainly makes a bit curious as to why the mock is getting so excited about the polls. Not of the fed may take the opportunity to to try and rain the market back in a little bit and try and get them back more to a neutral territory because of that. Let's talk about the greenback. It's climbed against all but three of its group ten currency peers and twenty nineteen to folks at TD North America point out that any further strengthening any wheat test of some of those twenty eighteen is could mean trouble for stocks can be trouble for high your credit and currencies as well. More. Generally. You're seeing that dollar bears can return to hibernation after the FOMC run me through your thinking. Yeah. So we had a little bit of softness in the dollar towards the individual pro, and that's not unusual this month and maneuvering which goes on. And it's quite often the case where people are just have to tidy things up in the came off a little, but the fundamental case for is is pretty hard to ignore right now, particularly against the emerging market currencies. You've got short term rates in America, which are very high in comparison to other g ten currencies relatively high compared to the emerging market world. Plus as we were saying this pretty strong background of data from the United States. And they made it very. Clear it's on a long-term polls here. So he's not really going to be going anywhere. We've monetary policy at the same time. There's other countries that want to lower interest rates in in Asia. We've had India of moved already we've got to Malaysia looking at it, South Korea looking at it Philippines, Indonesia, they're all heading towards lower rates environment. So that certainly from an investor's point to you. They're probably thinking that the fed is beginning to look like a high yield currency here. So we could save it. If a rebound once the fed is out the way people start looking ahead to Friday's jobs report. It's always a pleasure catching up. Thank you for stopping buying. It's Mark Cranfield. Remember the for real time market commentary and analysis to markets. Lifelock. That's the only Bloomberg terminal.

Pressure mounts on Alabama publisher after he urges KKK to 'ride again'
"Alabama newspaper publisher faces demands that he resigned after his paper called for the KKK to ride again. He said the white supremacist groups should clean out Washington. Troy public radio's Kyle Gasset got reaction in Linden, Alabama. For the past week. One name keeps getting repeated at the checkout stand in Linden's Dollar General that of good low Sutton publisher editor of the democrat reporter newspaper. Pretty you'll get the people around Linden about good Loeser. Bobbi Williams has worked at the store for sixteen years. He remembers a newspaper racks were full of the democrat reporter on the front sidewalk, but about six months ago, another racially charged story changed that and lead to boycotts. They moved them and took him off the stores, but still somehow he printed his payback. He got him around in the past few years sentence op EDS have been particularly divisive in two thousand seventeen he wrote African American athletes should be allowed to kneel during the national anthem because two hundred years ago blacks were taught to kneel before white men in his latest column published last week he called for the Ku Klux Klan to rise up and quote nitrite. Again, he also singled out Democrats who he claims are plotting to raise taxes in Alabama. Prominent Alabama lawmakers have called on Sutton to resign. They include longtime GOP Senator Richard Shelby democrat Doug Jones, and Alabama's Republican governor civil rights activists are also upset about good lows column. He's used the word Democrats. But I have sneaky suspicion that he's talking more about African-Americans Benard simultaneous is the president of the Alabama chapter of the N double A C P. He says Sutton made a parts of his op Ed they claimed freed slaves once borrowed their masters Klan robes too frightened or kill people. And he's angry that Sutton later compared to the NWEA C P to the clan. I would ask them certain. How many churches has the NWC Pete mom you kill folk?

This is a compromise. No, one got everything they wanted. I am cautiously optimistic that we can get support from Republicans and Democrats people who really want to keep the government open. We'll see because right now need allow he has a deal that Nancy Pelosi signed off on then a lot of freedom caucus members in the house are not happy about and so are some broadcasters out happy about, but it seems like a compromise Bill that gives the president one point four billion for his barrier. But that might not be enough. We do not know how the president feels about it. So we'll get started. That's we'll begin the border deal is reached. So here we have five thousand detention beds above the record level of funding for two thousand eighteen it secures ice funding and flexibility necessary to maintain it's current current level.

People get hurt who don't deserve to be hurt. So I don't think it helps anyone I hope we decide to actually banned that practice sooner or later where at least stop lawmakers for making money while other people like TSA workers do not get paid.

"Current sauce equality fellow at the open society foundation, a Texas confident for the Columbia journalism review and a former columnist for the Texas observer, she's the director of the PBS documentary against Mexico. The making of heroes and enemies, and is currently working on a book about borders in their powerful influence on US, identity, politics, and the culture of violence. She has a recent three part essay series on the US Mexico border at the baffler. Welcome to background briefing. Michelle garcia. Well, thank you, Michelle. And of course, the border security talks in the congress, look like they're breaking down. GOP Senator Richard Shelby. And charge of the talks was pretty pessimistic saying they was stalled. So we could have a government shutdown on Friday. We could also have a declaration of a national emergency by President Trump. But tomorrow Monday, the president goes down to El Paso, El Paso course, featured in the president's state of the union where he made wildly inaccurate claims that the city of El Paso, which has one of the country's lowest crime rates was ravaged by crime until a wall was built to keep Mexicans out. So there will be a rally I believe at the Coliseum in El Paso by Trump on I think it's on Monday night. But they'll also be a demonstration and a March and led by congressman Beddoe, a rock the March for truth. Which is planned against what essentially will be Trump campaign rally. So let's start with the latest news from the bipartisan negotiations to avoid a government shutdown and a declaration of a national emergency doesn't look promising right? It certainly doesn't we have to also look at this in the bigger picture. Democrats have been reloading the gun for Republicans in terms of border security going back to the nineteen nineties which it's when a lot of the laws that are being used. Now, we're putting in place by President Clinton. So the question we need to be asking ourselves right now because it's so easy to focus on the immediate political moment. Right. Today's headlines this week's headlines and ask ourselves what part of this negotiation and discussion about border security is actually kicking the can down the road. It will create bigger problems over time. We see that the border wall was I created one of the first was during the Clinton administration than during the Obama administration and with time you've seen border security, which is deeply entrenched in this country is justification for violence. And and unlawful acts by state agents, grow and become increasingly symbolic and politically powerful culturally powerful in our nation so much so that our current president could run on it. So when we're talking about the discussion the debate right now in the compromise so-called compromise what what is on the table that is actually going to blow up potentially in our faces further down the line. Are you either birding a crisis now or are you feeling an ongoing crisis? That has been you know, unfolding now for decades. Well, the president actually makes that charge in a tweet today. Donald Trump said it was a very bad week for the Democrats with the great economic numbers. The Virginia disaster in the state of the union address. Now with the terrible office being made by them to the border committee. I actually believe they want to shut down. They want a new subject. Now. I doubt imagine you agreeing with Donald Trump. Not the thing is you spent again, this is defining the current political moment there's nothing to say remember his ultimate goal is a huge very expensive wall. There's nothing to say that if Democrats concede and reload this political weapon for him right now. But sometimes get further down the road that it's not gonna Kern later. I mean, the truth of the matter is that we all know, it is factual mean those who are still living in factually grounded world, but the border wall is does not do what? People claim to do. It doesn't stop. The flow drugs dot comes from ports of entry. We know that it has pushed migration routes and many most of the migrants now are silence seekers. So the question could be asking ourselves is what is the compromise over something that fundamentally doesn't work, and that, you know, provides political currency for a party, they will then be used in a twenty twenty election. And let's also keep in mind. The Democrats won many seats, including in Texas. My store turnouts by blacks him at Pino's who oppose the border wall, the strongest opposition to border wall. According to a Quinnipiac poll last year, you'd African Americans and by conceding this what are Democrats going to give up? I'm not interested. And I don't think we are interested in having to debate within the parameters that are set up by people with short term political interests when truthfully with the American people need and want is leadership. So Michelle if we go back to President, George W Bush's bipartisan efforts at a comprehensive immigration deal is there. I mean when you talk about the both parties being culpable, the Democrats, and the Republicans, my understanding of the immigration issue is that it is sort of crosses ideological lines in as much as you could argue that there's a de facto alliance between the chamber of commerce on the rights and mild f on the left and unions on one hand in league with minute, man. So it doesn't neatly fit into any kind of left right paradigm. Does it? Well, I think there are people who make a strong argument that Democrats have been complicit in the creation of this border security, monster monster, I mean it as so symbolically potent now that it brings the country to its knees. And so what we have is an ongoing conversation about a symbol not about what really actually functional solutions. There hasn't been comprehensive immigration reform. But there are drones, Dr helicopters. There's a armed boats Rio Grande valley right now monitoring there are new checkpoint about to go up that has new technological abilities that essentially amount to what I think a lot of privacy. People are experts are going to be concerned about which is the ability to penetrate into a person's vehicle you have documented ongoing massive security app. Rattus that exists on the border that has been funded by both parties. And so the the issue is what are we debating? What are we really debating the problem is that Trump has expertly turned our attention away from the real border crisis. Last I checked there were forty people sitting on the international border in the real grand valley and volunteers from the Texas side, taking them food volunteers from Mexico side, helping care for them. There are nearly two thousand asylum seekers that were penned up in an old factory in negative across the border from eagle pass. There are people who are losing their land in the real grand valley to the government seizing their land in order to build this new wall that was funded by the appropriations Bill twenty eighteen that included votes by some Texas, Democrats, including that the Rourke. So the real border crisis right now the way I see it or the people who are sitting on the bridge. The people who are being dumped on the streets of El Paso and in the Rio Grande valley. Silence seekers that thin local community groups have to respond to as fellow human beings. The massive privacy issues, the security, the massive government taking of privately owned land in the interest in the name of border security. These these are the issues and as far as Trump going to help Paso, what astonishes me truly astonishes me. Is it the wall construction then was taking place beginning in September. Last year was the replacing of existing border barriers the new border wall. The one that's constructed by preparations bills from twenty teen that's happening in the Rio Grande valley for those people who are not. Because familiar with Yager fee of Texas. I will tell you that it's about the distance of like a over twelve hour drive. So if Donald Trump is so proud of his border wall, the one that he's creating then why isn't he showing up in the Rio Grande valley where they're about to bulldoze pristine habitat and show up and say, I thought this well, the trajectory always been on is one of denial about some of the real issues, for example, the war on drugs, we blame Mexico and the cartels. But we here in the United States house the consumers, so we have massive culpability in that regard. And it's pretty clear from the Central American caravans at Trump is demonized and and uses a campaign rally and will continue to do. So that if with a fraction of the money, they spending on these border, walls, etc. And technologies that you mentioned like drones a fraction of that money. If that was sent to the Central American country. As to make life, more livable for the people. There would go much much further towards solving the so-called problem when the Europeans have solved the they don't have borders Boorda's are in many ways, I a fiction they don't work. And you know, I'm not suggesting open borders. That's the canal that Trump uses but in effect, you don't really need. Boarders? If you have a rational debate and a rational relationship with your neighbor. Well, that's that's where we get to the other side of a function of borders in which is borders are also the site where national identity take shape where national identity formed mean that is part of the function of borders. And that is that that roller borders is what we see acted out and influential in our politics and has been which is a proxy in a symbol for national identity. So let's take a look at our borders right now. Rick at it like a mirror and say, that's who we are. And then when you do that decide whether that is what we want it to be because the truth of the matter is the reason rational debate can't happen is because it is. So politically charged with symbolism and notions that have nothing to do with what actually happens on a border. How many reports need to come out about how safe the cities are? Or how many reports need to come out about why asylum seekers arriving in this country and about the levels of violence and impunity in those in this country. Some of which United States has had a rolling. How many reports need to come out about the drugs come through ports of entry or about illegal legal immigration that that train left longtime ago in regard to drugs as it so happens yesterday day before yesterday the customs and border protection? I made an announcement of the largest drugs domestic drug seizure history. One point seven tons of mass cocaine heroin seized where. The port in Long Beach on its way tossed this is an expert.

"Negotiations quietly continuing we should see something by way of an agreement within the next couple of days apparently reportedly from this bipartisan committee, considering a solution to keep the government open and to give the president and the American people some border barriers. Senate Democrats are offering more money for border barriers only in exchange for fewer detention beds. Democrats are trying to limit the Trump administration's ability to detain border-crossers, preferring alternatives such as ankle bracelets. We're going to talk to the an ice official at eight. Oh, five this morning. And find out from him how effective those forms of tracking our and actually keeping people from staying in the country who shouldn't be here. And we were just speaking a moment ago, but the idea of amnesty, which ultimately would reward lawbreaking, whatever your views of amnesty. Are it rewards lawbreaking? Indeed it incentivizes it actually creates magnet for more of it. And that's obviously the opposite of what we should be doing. I on its face Brian. And Lord, I think feels the same way I would want to get him in here. Brian good morning. Good morning. Yeah. Absolutely. I was absolutely amazed that the gentleman that called before I would say that you are a slapping the people in the face that are standing in line and patiently waiting to follow the system properly by the notion of this amnesty thing the people that are still in line are going to wait to go through the process and the Democrats just want everybody to overlook that back. Yeah. I think it's absolutely insane. And we need to fix the system. There's no question, and there are big questions to deal with that we have to grab with related to whatever. The number is eleven million twenty two million seen people say well self deportation get to the back of the line, whatever it takes. But clearly if we're going to figure out a way to use that as a piece of leverage in a conversation to secure the border, say, hey, Democrats, you know, what will grant some form of process to these people. So that we don't have to deport we don't have to run and grab every single person at deport them. The only way that works is you can do in exchange for absolute guarantees on border security, and how many times has that been tried and failed a lot a lot. It's failed. So you've really got to have somebody who's strong enough to get through this President Trump, certainly as the willpower for somebody who's strong enough to get through this and get something meaningful out of it to trade for the entire wall. If you were to say twenty two million we were talking about this a second ago, twenty two million people amnesty citizenship so long as I get a wall that won't fix it. How many people get here into the United States, by way of visa overstays in stay a ton? How many people get here that would get through the wall? Anyway, a ton and will that fix the problem? No, it won't fix the problem. So what do we need to do? We need fixes to everything changes to the chain migration. Limitations on that the president offered that before in order to make it. So that we have a system where we actually know who's coming into the country, and why imigrants should join the United States see the benefit of the United States as an American American immigration system. That works is one that considers what value? Do you bring to our country? What do you what do you add to our country? When you come chain migration, doesn't do that chain migration makes it so that it's just a shotgun of people without any semblance of a reason for why they're here and the diversity lottery is the exact same thing. And if you're going to reform immigration you, of course, have to talk about catch and release which guarantees that people who are detained at the border end up being released into the interior of the United States. They don't show up for their court dates, and it's effective amnesty provided that those people were deported later, which is what the effect of decreasing the number of detention beds. What you're talking about? That's just catch and release. And then there's e-verify which we never talk about anymore, which is not been apart any of these recent conversations, but would would work if you mandate e verify for every business owners and employees to check okay is this person to citizens should they be or or legally in the United States? Should they be capable of working here? That simple, and it would go a long way towards beginning to fix the problem of why we have a magnet for illegal immigration in the first place. But it's the kind of thing that law makers aren't courageous enough to tackle why? Because they're loyal to the big business interests who support keeping us from having to forcibly check whether or not an employee's eligible to work for them. They're too loyal to big donors and big business, and that's not necessarily good for the country in every case. And certainly not in the case of immigration. Let's go to Joe in DC. Joe? Good morning. Good morning. From what I know much. Most agencies are preparing for another shutdown because they have state of the union Democrats are seeing their high ground. Their face away. Only thing they can do is become instruction. Well, I gotta say whatever the reasons that are preparing for a shutdown. Good. I mean, you should if a government agency should be preparing for a shutdown that you should reflexively be prepared for the eventuality of a shutdown whether or not it happens because I saw some reporting that you know, you have people who are now just receiving some of their back pay from the from the first round of this because government agencies weren't adequately prepared to handle. How was gonna what was gonna happen in the event of a shot then in the wake of one? So I hope Joe as you as you're saying that agencies are adequately prepared for this to happen. Because the president prove last time he was serious about pursuing border security and the shutdown happened because of and shutdowns happen all the time. So we should definitely always encourage people to be prepared for that. There was one last year the year before it's a it's a common thing.

Texas lawmakers are in session here in Austin that Capital One of the things they're discussing is back scenes vaccination rates across the state of Texas right now, the public can get information on a school district by school district basis on the number of kids who have not been vaccinated. There's an effort underway to make it school by school campus by campus. And we're gonna talk about that to kick things off today. Joining us on the news live line is record Lakshmana director of advocacy and public policy for the immunization partnership. That is a nonprofit in Houston, and she joins us now on NewsRadio LBJ record. Good morning. How are you? The morning. Thank you for having me on your one of the groups who is supporting this effort to make it easier for parents to find out on a campus by campus basis. The number of kids who have not been vaccinated. Why in a nutshell are you doing this? Well, we believe it's an issue of transparency, you know, one of the things we're most concerned about related to that team. Preventable diseases are disease outbreaks, and you know, as, you know, unfortunately, Washington state is in in a state of emergency. Because of the number of measles cases, set of occurred thus far this year. And in Texas, we've already seen six cases of measles and needs soak in cages, and they tend to they tend to cluster in different parts of our communities and schools are one of those areas that likes to harbor illnesses and. We believe that. Currently the way the data are reported at a at a district level veteran. Tell us or doesn't give us the entire picture of the health of the individual school. So if you think about it, if you have a parent, for example, who has a child who is immune compromised, or is undergoing chemotherapy, those children cannot be back naked. And so they need their schools have high unionisation rates in order to protect ban. But the district level just gives you a snapshot really all it's all based on campus, gravel information. So as a parent is trying to make the decision trying to make an informed decision as to where to send their child. They've got this data available to either try to get their child to another school that does have high immunization rates or possibly find in an alternative learning environment. So recommend question to you is. Is in doing that in knowing campus by campus? I know a lot of these schools districts are zoned for where you live in that area with this. Then allow you if the school that you are supposed to go to zone to go to has a high rate of unvaccinated students, would you be able to move within the district? There are some districts that allow flexibility, and again, it's going to be based on a district by district basis. However, it's additional information for that. Parents you know to to help make that decision. So for example, if there's a campus that, you know, has, you know, higher exemption rates that parents could decide. Okay. You know, maybe that's not the right school for my child right now, it's going to be better for me to home school about child. But again, the more information a parent has the better would be for them to make the right decision for their child and for their family or their safeguards in this proposal to keep people from learning the specific names of the kids who are not vaccinated. Well, I think it's extremely important to remember. And to understand that the data that would be made how Blake is be identified. Meaning there are no name, and it's aggregated. So it's going to be a row. Percentage, though, for example, you know, a either the exemption rates are point zero five percents. There's there's nothing in the proposed legislation that is going to violate privacy, or or share out individuals names or any kind of identifying information does it specify particular types of vaccines or or is it just an overall rate. It's an overall rate in terms of you know, kind of immunization information, so exemption rates. All right. And this would also require the state of Texas, the health department and the Texas education agency to make reports what are those reports. And what's the purpose of those? Well, every year school districts, our half king report, the number of exemptions filed within their school districts, and what we're what we're saying is these data are already collected. So this is not a new process school districts are going to have to go through. It's just another way of collating and reporting the data back into the state health department. So if you have an ISP with a, you know, a hundred campuses when the ISD has to report the data and in the fall, so every an independent school district report data. In the fall, they have to collect each campus level data and roll it up into an aggregate so arm, and then that independent school district. Ada is been sensitization. So this just sort of. It's already uses existing data already collected. But it's just reported in a different manner. We're talking live on the market Melinda. Show NewsRadio KLBJ with record Lakshman director of advocacy and public policy for the immunization partnership. It's a Houston nonprofit, and they're supporting an effort by some state lawmakers to give parents the ability to find out on a campus by campus basis, the percentage of students at that campus who have not been vaccinated and to do. So without an open records request right now parents can only find out on a school district wide basis. For example, a ISD Leander lake Travis round rock, you can find out on a full district wide basis. This effort is to really pinpoint at school by school, and you're working on this. What did you think your chances are getting this approved by state lawmakers? Well, I mean, we'll we'll see you know, I think there's. There's a different level of interest the session. Related to immunization again. Because of the recent outbreaks we've seen in other parts of the country and what we're starting to see here in Texas. In fact, yesterday believe another case of measles was confirmed in Denton. And so we're starting to see more and more cases emerge, and you know, we're really worried that we're on the brink of other public health crisis. And again, we always use nasal marker. Because it's so highly infectious and contagious either to kind of put it another way if you are in a room with, you know, individuals who are not back stated, and there's a case of measles sets introduced in that room. There's a ninety percent chance that you know, those people are are are going to be infected. And so I think we'll have to wait and see we're still very early session. A Bill has been filed the Senate Bill three two nine, and it was filed by Senator fellas from Amarillo, and you know, we will you know, continue to wholeheartedly support data transparency and giving. Parents better information to bake good decisions. What are the comments that strikes me in the article in the Dallas Morning News reporting on this effort is from a parent who has chosen not to have her children vaccinated, she's expressing the concern record that this will lead to problems? Because inevitably some parents who have vaccinated their kids will continue searching, which ones have not been vaccinated. And there will be pressure pressure from the crowd on those who have chosen not to get vaccinated. How do you respond to that? Well, I mean in Texas, parents, you know, has the ability to choose whether or not they they want to vaccinate their children and nothing in this proposed piece of legislation suggests that parents ability or their right to to choose whether or not to toback khanate is is going to be removed. And again, I think it's really important to remember that the data is it's an aggregated aggregated number. You know, it's the intent is not to drill down to the individual. It really is there to give a snapshot of the health of the child school very similarly to data collected on school performance. You know, we we know how schools perform on how children perform on. Scores. But you know, to my knowledge, I don't think there's been an effort to make to figure out you know, where children stand on their learning abilities similar. We have data on screen. You know, frightened children who get free and reduced lunches. So again, this is just I think part of an overall report card if you wanna call call it that way about about about the school, and specifically the health of that school when it comes to the health of their child, though, parents get very very passionate. I could see some really pushing hard to find out. All right, which ones are the ones who are not vaccinated. I could see that coming about in some cases. I mean, I think I think we can all agree on we just want. What's best for our children, and we want we want our children to be an safe and healthy environment. I think it's also important to remember that, you know, parent, you know, parents on on another side also have that right to know whether or not their child wall is is healthy though. Again, whore information is is better. And this is just part of that process. We're talking live with wreck Lakshmana and about this effort in the Texas legislature to allow parents to get a campus by campus report on the percentage of kids at that particular campus who have not been vaccinated and to do..

"Better Senator Richard Shelby along with Senator. Jim Inhofe, John Kennedy of Louisiana, and before that Senator Lindsey Graham, the Texas standard has this headline. The mayor of accounting, Texas, says A wall will not solve the realities of the border problems. Jim darling says hundreds of Silom seekers who come to the US legally ended up in mcallen every few days. Here's a portion of what he said. You know, I hate to call it a crisis because really the crisis technically, I guess is getting the people here because of the journey through Mexico leaving everything having Central America. I think we need to do immigration reform. But until the government keeps dropping him off on our doorstep. We're going to have to deal with it. And so we deal with it and Catholic charities enough. We have our ups and downs. No, we moved into a new facility that we have problems is no basic, it gets we had problems at a lot of the people that were coming ever used the toilet before we had to train basic some of the basic things like that. So it's it's amazing. The different challenges. But I certainly wouldn't call it a crisis. You know, that's where all the, publicity and the wall is a crisis on the border because depiction is five hundred people were getting are illegal illegal aliens. And technically when we get in their legal waiting. You're hearing. I hate to use the word crisis on the board. Are you seeing any effects of the government shutdown in far as processing these folks, not sort of thing? Yeah. I mean know we have a huge contingent of border patrol and see VP officers.

We had a final briefing before the shutdown happened with them in they have contingencies. But it's serious stressing their systems and think if you had the ear of the president and congressional leaders what would. Did you tell them about their border wall stalemate? Get compromise. Is what politics is all about him. This was local government. You quitting south this problem for at least five years now get new people in there to do it. But I just can't understand it. I know Senator Cornyn has made attempts in number two guy in the Senate. No, we listened apparently not listening to him from his standpoint. And I think you know, he knows Patrick border and anybody else he's been down here. More than anybody else. Border security is important, but a while especially where you have a river that's a relatively efficient deterrent, and you have lights twice a property that are going to be cut off from going. We call it the new border. It's important to take a look at that. It's not like Arizona to earn Mexico or the main parts of California where there's no border. You don't know where it is. Now, we know where border isn't we have one? And so I think when you take into consideration logical criteria property ownership in really effectiveness and border security just saying the walls awhile.
