"You know kind of what else i know. You don't probably want to give away the secret sauce but you know it is it based more on projections or current activity both but the simple answer is once you get established with some clients and you perform. They'll let you know where they're going. Yeah yeah you know so you get the inside scoop from them. They'll let you and then and on because they need it right. I mean they need you to have infrastructure up so that they can have no hiccups in their logistics of transporting water as correct and they do like to see multiple options. The means a win and there's a couple of you know half billion dollar back companies building back companies that have gone up the stack scoops and the last year and we've heard from a couple of large operators traders say look you know we don't we don't what happens if they take the whole water market. <hes> you know they're going to control the border prices yeah so as long as you guys can keep up with us. You know we're we wanted to sell to one of those guys into three years. Become that guy yeah and so that's that's positive and negative about heaven. You know they'd hundred pound gorilla up there but yeah yeah if you can perform. Many of these operators will will support you because i want. Another option is good. Yeah i mean it always comes down to relationships in this business right apps you know having good relationships with the companies and imboden successful business off of that yes sir so talking about we're talking about tax benefits earlier before we started the podcasts and you know a lot of one of the big sells for investors to get into upstream oil and gas assets is obviously the tax fits you get from intangible intangible drilling cost last year depletion tax credits. You know things like that yeah so paul. Obviously your investors are interested in getting some tax breaks. This is what kind of got you've chomping at the bit for saltwater disposals what kind of tax benefits or you guys seen from this. You know i wasn't familiar with tax. Benefits and saltwater disposal also definitely gets me excited yeah i wasn't either you know the way i kind of way me and jeff met is i was at a mentor group with a bunch of other advertisers and at saw guy that i hadn't seen in a while to get friend of mine was asking may what are you doing. What's going on as i build some stuff in texas and he's at ohio hi all right and i was like what are you doing in texas and he's like our doing this water disposal and also what company and he he told me up the scoble energy out of dallas and i'm like unheard unheard of those guys fort worth dallas. I used to live in ohio. That's close close enough so i was like you and then he said yeah they get ten percent and then they're getting a tax deduction and i said you don't get tax deductions on on water our disposal. I sit on the well yeah but not on water exposal. He's i swear to god we're getting that and so i'm like there's no way i would have known about this you know and so he's like well. I'm gonna put you in touch with them so me and jeff talked and he explained it to me and how it came out of the two thousand seventeen jobs act and its bonus depreciation. It's a good thing and we've got it for a few more years right so so basically any any you know business can go out and buy cap or by queant you know things to grow their business whereas he used after debris that over about twenty year period trump says we can do it in the first year <hes> halloween and the upstream space too right so essentially if you're drilling a well we'll hundred percent year intangible your i._d._c.'s become a write off. I think it was like eighty. Eighty percent eighty percent before yeah yeah so so for somebody who doesn't own a business but you have income and assets and you can partner with guys like us and be able to get that tax deduction and get the decent return awesome now. You don't get you know obviously an oil. You know if you hit that winner you're gonna be. You're gonna have a big big return but i mean that that boils down to a high risk high return right. You know a high reward but you know it's not always high reward. Most of our clients are are older and they don't wanna take that kind of risking and they're happy with her. Looking for steady steady cash flow you know one thing do won't say it was a two thousand seventeen. You know tax bill came out the jobs. I was a foul succ- except for the two thousand seventeen that tax bill passed that was most creation yeah so what's cool is what some of the strategies that people can implement because they have that right so think about this. Somebody's got an i._r._a. Right where some of the lowest tax rates they think tax rates are going up. They wanna do a roth conversion right now. They can offset that entire tax bill and move over to a roth and have roth income tax free so that's one of the deterrence for a lot of people to convert to a roth as they gotta pay all the taxes upfront. Now we have an option which before we might have used long aspect. That's pretty high risk right now. We have this option which is low risk and much lower risk than oil and gas and and with the same or close to the same deduction and you can move a lot of that money and offset awesome yeah if you're listening to this and you wanna get some tax benefits fits makes money hit up paul. He's a man when it comes destruction. We'll also so one of the one of the questions you all the time has hey. You guys are in well. How can we take that first. Step into either you the participating investments or becoming operator doing some non upside this is this is a great way to get in. Yeah absolutely oil get into some water deals kinda. Get your feet wet with some things. Allow these guys to kind of educate you in school you on kind of the ins and outs that's a great first step without making the what kind of not not specific to y'all's three facilities then obviously i know you guys have to be careful. On what would you claim for returns but just generally over the over the industry for saltwater disposal. What are some typical returns. You know i mean if you look at apartment complexes commercial real estate complexes people know that you know hey we can get a fifteen percent return. Is there any kind of standard for that for us w._d. Facilities m._s. w._d. Facility should run thirty forty percent margins no and then then of course. What's your corporate experience. Do you have a cost of capital yeah. Do you have debt and so it's kind of all over with the board but the way we structure our deal. It's really since we're not taking debt. We're not using private equity and we're not using wall street. Just the fees is that we save these expenses on counting the headache. There's plenty there to really way. We treat our investors their preferred. They've got a preferred verd- status to us as a managing general partner so they get paid. I we make ten percent distribution that pays monthly in it starts paying immediate because because we we put that money to work <hes> cash flow enough the asset one asset to cover the ten percent on multiple assets and then upon exit. They also get paid. I get one hundred and ten percent back then. We get everything over that. I'm i'm happy taking the risk. I'm comfortable taking the risk yeah and if we're right then you know we let the investor save a lot of tax dollars yeah and make nice. I don't think people realize how much capital gets destroyed by fees in middleman when when it comes to his wife yeah exactly i mean it's just the reporting and everything else you gotta do is can yeah i mean this. This is a problem that i talk about upstream oil and gas assets. You know this is a very tough market right now. Just the entire capital structure is broken and they're don't get me started on this foot. Whether whether there's one gas midstream assets commercial real estate the amount of fees that you pay just destroy capital. I mean even you know this just going through a brokerage fun. You know <hes> doina wanna run yeah yeah. It'll kill you and so getting accessed. Frontmen besser is being able to directly access investments. Our asses extremely yeah and that's our that's our long term goal to is the negative to that is it's taken us longer razor capital yeah no you can't get two hundred million and put it to work yeah but the positive is is that if we perform and if we're able to execute well then we're looking to grow that base and so i'm an entrepreneur. I'm not gonna stop op working. I was bored to death and twelve thirteen fourteen. My wife tell you that was hor- just fish the whole time no see that's the thing i don't have that how many hobbies to work. You know. We're right there with you. On this because asian like retirement any can't ever fucking retirement. I do myself it making money's fun and i'm also sarah awesome charity making other people. Money is absolutely just like building things building things things in following yeah if you have that following if you if your investors have made money with either gonna stick with you and they're gonna go onto the next deal with and when you have that backing there's there's nothing that can really stop you. You have access to capital now and in the next good deal that comes along and get your folks together and no crank up the next thing you know. I don't know what the pilot analogy about the part analogy about being an entrepreneur so i read this i read this article from his name's michael arrington and he wrote it on tetrarch articles like nine nine years old and his apart analogy was that he compares entrepreneurs to pirates there isn't he does. He said he said you look at pirates back in the sixteen hundred seventeen hundreds whenever pirates were running rampant. He's like it probably wasn't that lucrative if you know. How many times did you know a big loot. You know rob a big ship. He said but the risk was pretty high like you're going to get you know get executed. Oh you're gonna get killed out at sea. You know there. There was just this outweighed risk you here to the reward. He says why compare pair entrepreneurs pirates he said because very few entrepreneurs actually make it and make any money but entrepreneurs don't give a fuck about the risk or the reward we just do it because we thoroughly enjoy in your venture so yeah the highs and lows just enjoy the process right and that's that's so it is for me at least personally speaking. I obviously in business to make money but that's not my end goal journey along the way amen. I encourage her. You know one other thing too about using the individual investors is if you do go out and get some of the private equity flex better term. Here's two hundred million clock starts taken you gotta you gotta deploy capital and you and that that can cause people to shortcut the process and by assets. Maybe they shouldn't by to enforce his you end up bad decisions hundred percent. It does yes if you don't return. Your equities knocked out yeah dot com..

"Buddies with us today got jeff johnson with episode energy and our good buddy paul nick with south texas financial group now the devil dog it's going to are you guys doing today awesome good so spun up so paul. You've been a friend of ours for quite a while now and i think you're at our original happy the hours yeah a year ago we work. We met at the bosley hair group. Didn't we don't need that yeah. <hes> i remember paul being there at the original ones those are those are those g wants. Yeah i know you guys are all into 'em may and stuff so i figured i just shaved my head and look like i have a little intimidating. You guys got a really cool episode here. Jeff is as with episode global energy. You guys are in the salt water. Disposal business paul usually introduced us paul ron's fons foreign investors and gets them in a different types. It's of assets saltwater disposals being one of those kind of how we'll connect this story between you two but jeff. Let's start out talking about what you guys are doing at a high level sure we're up in the anadarko basins primarily the stack scoop and transporting and disposing of produced water inflow backwater and that's a good business because that's expensive the the only orwell's oh yeah all right you too big events that are usually get rid of water and electricity correction. We own some water wells right yeah they you know i like this topic that we're talking about and actually jeff and i before we started recording. We walked over to the kitchen. Grab some water and i asked him if he knew kurt he's like yeah just had lunch with them. Three days ago as man every everyone those curtains saltwater does everybody knows what her car was. Actually we had him on and one of our earlier episodes and really got us excited about salt water disposal because it seems like a really unsexy business but what is sexy is cash flow the cash flow the warring in predictable but i mean just the amount of i can't. I can't cite the statistics off the top of my head but the water the supposed to come out of the permian basin over the next five years. She's astronomical so far listeners. Who don't who don't know you have a well as the life of the wealth progresses you're producing more and more water typically and like jeff said this is going to be one of your basic expenses so this has been hauled off and then injected or just injected into a solid supposedly what we have on one of our leases jeff that i leave anything out where he that's exactly right or you can treat it reprocess it. That's that's probably. I won't say that's where the industry's going were probably a number of years out <hes> <hes> <hes> i kinda liked it to them for gas probably back in the seventies. It was really more pain in the neck than anything because we didn't have infrastructure in place to move it <hes> and eventually. I believe if you're going to have this water being connected via pipe being reused. We're we're still quite a few years away from math yeah yeah i mean i'm pretty forward thinking saw i. I tend to think that will you know someone's going to figure out how we recycled produce water using fracking applications drilling but i think we can do it now. It's just extremely expensive to do rag who do it on a large commercial skill. That's right and it's the ford to trickle down for the average operator. It's gonna be a few years out because it's a massive capital investment absolutely louis. They're getting. They're absolutely yes so i'm interested in this because i wanna i wanna invest in salt water disposal facilities so really interested to learn some today but before we dive ventoux it. Let's talk about you guys. Personally we can start off with jeff jeff. Tell us about your background. You know how how did you get up to this point. What's your career in the oil and gas business. You can go oh as detailed as you want or keep it his general as you want and then we'll get into pulse was born in jacksonville arkansas. I grew up out in lubbock came over to dallas nineteen ninety eight and was a stockbroker briefly was disenfranchise with that and so. I don't know how i heard about us through a friend chesapeake form. Tom aubrey just formed chesapeake in nineteen ninety nine so they were looking for people to raise money for him for south texas then it was the austin chalk you know the horizontal when it got started going <hes> so so from eighty nine to ninety three we structured deals and raise capital from net worth individuals family offices they went public ninety three and i went started on company took a handful of those investors and i went over to what is now the barnett shell but we were drilling on top of it and to have more shallow formation and had some lip there after we lost first the ball we lost about three million bucks in louisiana right off the bat so i said we're leaving louisiana. Wait wait wait. Let's talk about this. How'd you lose three million dollars because because there's this great to bed wells yeah too bad well. That's what i saw. A lot of people don't understand about the expiration businesses that you could have thirty. You know decent wills but you have to bad ones and they can just change everything. Oh yeah i'll bet you over my career. We've owned probably thirty. Five hundred. Wells drilled a thousand of them. Well it make very much money on very many of them don't handful. You'd yeah so that tents water business. We can get into that later. You just made a comment before we started recording so yeah we own mr pools in oklahoma but fuck oils. I wanted in the water business of the money that i'm making more oil off my disposal well than i ever. We'll ask him all yeah. We are. Yes crazy. I just wish we could have so we saw the downturn so anyway. It's backed up so in ninety three did a small private deal and mesa mostly friends and family ninety eight. We got an unsolicited offer from bob simpson to buy everything he was out in parker county on land by minerals and we just happened to have thirty two wells on what he bought say these we want it and he gave us the members got it and then it was the name sounds familiar. Who is he mm-hmm yeah so he started cross timbers in that became mexcio <hes> he was chairman and c._e._o. When they so tax on okay i think one of the most successful if not the most successful independent independent oil company out there. They just did a great job over next to you. All those guys yeah absolutely so in nine nine for those that weren't in the business. It was brutal. We had small production and illinois with sold off the gas assets out in parker county and we actually got to revenue runs. We received see from the purchaser. Seven dollars and seventy five cents a barrel. That's bad when it cost you ten and you're getting seven seventy five. That's right you lose two three bucks every the timing produce barrel so i kind of got sucked into the matt. Simmons been pickens cam the cheap oil pretty soon tze over and so we wanna make long bet on they kind of bring that up because i kind of remind you that's where we are down water industry. I think we've got a lot of upside in it and if he can get a now control assets i think you can probably sell into a pretty good market down the road so back in oth three we were out pitching going to wall street sin the usual guys and actually had in two thousand and two word about eighteen bucks and actually had a banker analyst who's probably all twenty five years old. He's a what might you will ever see twenty dollars again. I said okay we'll go to the next week. The next guy says we're not buying all right now to cheat. So when do you want to buy it. You know it's just the market mentality. Everybody says buy low sell high. It's hard to get people to do that. Believe they hold onto it goes down then they sailed compliance a lot easier said than done typical investor in anything right. That's exactly right. I always tell at the wrong time and by the wrong time so we met along that we just wanted to go by as much as fast as we could and so we finally found a group out of europe that said said yeah we'll we'll. We liked the idea. We'll give you some money and i wanted to get into the public markets because at that time the cost capital was pretty good so we got to the public markets and we're we're only american stock exchange no five and went to the new york and built it to about a six hundred fifty million dollar enterprise value from about afford away. Which company was this. This was no energy came connell petroleum c._f. W was the ticker an when oil prices go from twenty to one hundred forty everybody looksmart by the way uh-huh yeah exactly so for what we did and do we wanted to guess right on the markets. You know we wanted to go up and down with the tide. We're never ever gonna pick the bottom or the top. I'm not anyway so as long as we can get in somewhere around you know bomb twenty percent get out somewhere in the top twenty percent. We're good with that in the meantime. Just execute don't make too many mistakes and if you don't make them twice so that's kind of what we do in any event we had a mention this because we're not taking any debt i one hundred million dollars a debt in two thousand and eight whenever we saw lasco from one hundred forty eight thirty two sounds like the main problem well the the the good news that is a hundred may sound like a lot but it's not and so when you have chesapeake the does the same in california when they two billion now the people owned two billion man would just go sit down and say man just stick with us. We'll make it yet. Hey just get out of my hair. You know so so we survived that and the company had grown. I'm an entrepreneur this four startup a guess and i'm bill to sell guy <hes> and that company got to the point where it went from literally two guys on the board and for employees to earn seventy five employees and a corporate board and it's it was time for me to go and this was two thousand ten yeah december two thousand ten i went did some consulting process jumped v-shaped curve. You know jump right back up to one hundred bucks. Buy twenty seven okay. We're gonna wait for correction. Get in it but this time we're doing water. We water flood company tertiary oil company so we managed a lot of water at comment and i remember it wasn't even a line item on the balance sheet that will be on through quarterlies looking at production shen. You know it was doing okay but this little bitty line item that we didn't even have on the balance sheet would be hall mortar for some of our competitors disposing of it. I can thirty forty percent margin yeah so why are we doing oil wells. You know and that was private. Of course we didn't say that to the market so that i'll never forget that and then of course our biggest bill the two biggest bills will always have in that as trinity and water to water so twenty twelve. We still had one hundred dollars oil twenty thirteen hundred twenty fourteen at two hundred. You'd go man. I missed it this thing ever incorrect the night and finally at did started tuned fifteen sixteen it got down to twenty six dollars in january sixteen and so we formed from the company about mid sixteen and spent about twelve months okay are we gonna. Are we going to fund this private equity. Guys know don't want to go to the public markets no and the ready foul six exemption is what we can do. We can advertise take accredited investors only but that helped at helped. That's one thing in the jobs. Active obama obama passed it that was helpful for small trying to raise money <hes> so we set that up on the first one done and we wanted to get in the market in the water market put somewhere other than the permian and here's why permeates great. I mean it's the gold standard. The bertie entry was pretty high. We felt we may have been a little late to the game name so to get a foundation. Let's try to find an up and coming play that is not real saturated yet. Then as we kind of get our sea legs might go look at the permian manner eagle ford smother things that was good. I mean you know that's continentals on good job. Harold hamm went up there and really was a pioneer of that fourteen and fifteen and they say they can make money at thirty dollars a barrel. I don't know if the candidate they say they can and they actually had the recount row in two thousand fifteen and i think i believe this is right to believe every other base and we saw the recount decline so we got up there and bought into trucking company and we wanted to get market share you know but transportation and as soon as we did that then we went and got her first disposal well down last year and our second disposal well down and we just finished up our third one and it's <hes> you know so far so good. It's boring and it's predictable. I'll boring and predictable. Actually the guy that we bought our wills from an oklahoma has s w._d. Business and water hauling and he had a whole a portfolio wolves that he was selling. We just took three of them but he's like man. He's like one out of the oil business. He's like so much more predictable to run my salt water disposal. What are the this is more traditional national. I mean they did pretty well and then they had what like i think it was partially the downturn but then they had like to dry holes in india's demand one one of those stories no had had a portfolio of you know thirty forty wells had two bad ones in the bunch that just completely you know man we we built up this portfolio over the last few years and you get to bad ones runs and all of a sudden all of that negated yes oh he's by my as w._d. Businesses so much more predictable traditional business zo he sold out and wanted to focus on that. We'll even like when you're raising capital to you know the story that you're gonna tell the investor you know they they wanna negate risk as much as possible right and even the the tax deduction is appealing when you're drilling wells but if you have the deduction available as well as cash flow on a consistent basis like that it's hard to beat that for an investor of somebody lester standpoint yeah yeah i mean oil and gas upstream. I said sir very high risk right and so try to take some of these institutional channel investors that may be focused on commercial real estate or some more risk adverse investments that cash flow. It's a lot easier sell them on salt water disposal midstream play than it is some high risk venture in oil and gas lutely..

"There is lots of ranchers who described walking on their land as being like walking across mattresses, weird event, just if it was maintained, that's the way it would come back in grow. Yeah. Like I say grows. You know it's one of the easiest cactus through is grow from seed, and it's quite rugged in resilient in. So all it needs is a little bit of covering protection from things like rabbits, when it's getting started and it'll do just fine. But the problem is you got a lot of people who are relying on small bits of land. It's being augmented by large-scale poaching ongoing in Mexico that's being smuggled into the US that's causing problems in another self 'cause Mexican peyote, people have need for their peyote. It's problematic picture all the way across the board. Yeah. And it's really strange to think to that. You know, who is doing this poaching? Obviously, there's this image. Right. Of people just partying out in the desert mean, is that where a lot of this elicits poaching is going or is it just people are pushed into this back corner where they don't have any other options? But to get it that way. I believed that part of it is people feeling they have no other options. Okay. The problem with this picture is, there's not a lot of concern for the health of the local populations because, you know, say if you are a harvest during you went to a piece of land, and you reporter, you wouldn't have any way of knowing who'd been there before you and won the last visit was and might be looking at a plant that looks like it's harvestable. But if it's just regret after a harvest it sucked all of its food stores out of the subterranean stem that produced it. And so if you come back and harvested, again, before it's had time to rebuild those food stores, we probably killed that plant this time. And that's one of the confounding. Factors. But basically, there's a lot of misdirected blame in drug users tend to get blamed for being the cause of poaching stealing peyote, especially in Mexico. Relative is those are the people that have the least freedom of movement, especially invisibly, it's the same in south Texas, the notion that, you know, outside drug users can come into south Texas figure out where the peyote is on these lands manage to trespass successfully, and then steal in large volumes is almost silly, there's money involved. That's the I mean of you're basically harvesting. What has to add up in the millions of buttons a year, you're talking about something that is actually substantial income for the people doing it. This is the one aspect of it. People don't like looking at her thinking about, but for example, in south Texas right now. Because of the influx of native American church due to a couple of property acquisitions they're getting the blame for increased poaching in south Texas. It used to be quote hippies unquote. We're getting the blind. But if you talked to anybody actually lives in south Texas, they believe it is always has been the licensed distributors and their employees who are involved most of the poaching trespassing. And that would actually be logical because these are all local who've grown up there. No, the land. They know every piece of parcel, that has peyote whether they're permitted on it or not. They know where the peyote is located in all they have to physically get to it. Right. Whereas like say somebody was to head down to south Texas. Good luck to them on even find the plant, and it's the same with Mexico. There's parts where you can go to an actually just go walk around and fine. Peyote, but as a Gringo in Mexico, it's not like you'd somehow got free free unfettered run to go are RBIs, scheduled plants Mexico has three layers of protection for peyote not just the drug laws there peyote is protected by virtue of the drug laws. It's also protected because of inclusion in the Mexican constitution, and it's also protected as a member of their flora,.

"Of Suncoast resources in studio today and Steve before the break we were, talking about a lot of wet Suncoast resources is doing in the oil. And gas sector but I want to switch gears just a little. Bit and talk about your emergency response part of the company because if, there's one thing that we learned, when we, interviewed Kathy, Leany the president, of, Suncoast resources was how really involved you guys are with this with being a partner in Texas, and, probably the majority of the United States when we have an emergency. So let's back up a little bit and talk about hurricane Harvey It hit here, in Houston y'all's hometown it hit the coast as well south Texas what. Part did Suncoast resource play in helping Texans deal with this disaster Well Suncoast resources is really the emergency fuel company of distinction Earned by. Responding to over forty names, storms over the last fifteen years so during periods of peril people have come to rely on Suncoast to provide them. The fuel for their generators to give them up and running so when, the lights go out and access to the grid is interrupted obviously hospitals need fuel to keep, the lights on. To, keep all the equipment running senior citizens senior citizen homes Require that. And did require that and, we responded to several of those we get calls from a precinct one constable in wanted us to respond to the. Jewish senior living facility in BelAir and spite of the fact that you, know the roads were flooded they needed fuel desperately and we responded and received an accommodation just, recently for that But when Harvey hit followed by Irma and then Maria particularly Harvey Chris we were, called down by the state of Texas and we responded by setting, up fuel pods, located, in strategic locations all around the Houston and south Texas area Directed by the. Governor's office and we actually embedded are HSE director in the bunker in Austin so that she could keep touch with all the various agencies that need to the part and parcel of the, emergency response efforts, by the state of Texas, so what we did is we hauled fuel from wherever we could get it to supply customers of every size contract customer specifically with a fuel that they needed to keep, to keep rolling, be retail location. Construction operations of. The military the US coast guard all the various state agencies that, needed, fuel for their vehicles for the generators for equipment, to respond to folks that were in, dire, straits first responders rescue, and recovery personnel and units so it was Was very heartwarming for me to be part of, the Suncoast team, to see Kathy. And Kyle Laney Basically working around the clock along with a lot of other people in the emergency response fuelling. Team around the clock to respond to harby Kathy and Kyle Laney specifically slept at Suncoast for fifty eight consecutive days They man the storm operations center that we have there And. We were in direct contact to the hundreds of drivers emergency response has met professional drivers that we have that. Are actually out in the field responding to the storms so no sooner were we involved, in weeks of fuelling customers. That needed the emergency fuel but then Irma hidden Florida and we dispatched oughta trucks to Florida and, then followed by, Maria when it devastated the Caribbean islands particularly Puerto Rico And the Virgin Islands and some of the other places so we sent. Some of our emergency fuelling equipment to Puerto Rico via ship in by military aircraft in, fact this August it will. Be one year when we actually we actually celebrate still being in Puerto Rico fueling generators for individual, people that have Lost power installer without, power in the mountains for example so It's very heartwarming to. To, participate in providing emergency fueling services to people in, need well anything that we all. Remember when hurricane Harvey hit it came, with very little notice and if you were in its path it was devastating why I mentioned that is because I have a home and in. Rockport and we were definitely we took an eighty, percent loss so not having access to basic, fuel air. Condition It was hard the whole community of of south Texas the whole coastal region Corpus Christi and was just completely wiped out of any kind. Of basic services, and when you think. About it when you go through that it it's those people are going through. That in Houston kind of went through a disaster as well when they opened up the. The levees but then you also maybe didn't get affected but you were in San Antonio or, somewhere near there and you're having problems at the pump because you can't seem to get access to gasoline in other words the whole, entire state I think in many ways went through, this disaster together and the unsung. Hero the untold hero is a company, like Suncoast resources that is running on the front lines just like we expect our law enforcement and our emergency responders to be there is Suncoast. Resources and I think it's important for us to Tell that story because. I don't think that we really as a state understood how devastated, it was for many of the residents in Texas, besides seeing it on the TV but you also felted in the sense that you, probably were doing without some resources yourself and, we saw a lot of people run from other parts of the state to come and try to help and Suncoast was certainly one of those. When we get, back I want to. Try to get back on track of where is Suncoast heading to this great. Company and try to understand more about how the leadership and and yourself how you guys. What's your day look like but we do have to take a quick break you're.

"Border for years now i wanna know if you've picked up any clues that that were sounding like there's something out there called a tender age shelter i mean chris just hit the nail on the head lawrence inside this building that we're standing in front of eleven hundred kids have been separated from their parents i was inside the building and there are babies sitting by themselves in a cage with other babies we're those babies going to go what are they gonna put those babies when their parents are picked up and sent into a federal prison or a local jail and then deported and then they never come back you want to know what happens next the babies don't end up making it into facility like this the parents would normally come with those babies don't show up to declare asylum they decide to run from the border patrol instead and the next chapter in the story is we're going to be seeing pictures of dead babies in the zona desert in the south texas brush that's what happens when you put deterrence in place and that's what's going to happen next in the store you're going to have babies dying coming into the united states because families are scared to seek asylum because they don't want those babies to end up in tender age shelters mariscal marred like get your reaction to this new report tonight about the socalled tender age shelters he's aren't shelters lawrence these are prisons for children and sadly the american people have to be as outrageous i am right now i am a mother i have a three year old and have a five year old and what you're experiencing right now i cannot imagine not being able to sue soothe my child i cannot imagine that our government is using our tax dollars this way i cannot imagine that there's any american right now that is not as morally outrageous i am i encourage people we voted latinos organizing a march it's called stop separation dot org this june twentyfourth this sunday from el paso to the first ten city because this is not acceptable not on our watch we have to make sure that we are present because with the president is doing his policy that he lamented because he's capricious not because he has any alternative solution to actually have leadership in this world to actually demonstrate what our country actually needs we can all recognize that are issues that we need to to address this is not how you do it you do not do it and the vulnerability of children i wanted to underscore something that your guests said earlier some of these children will never see their parents again because chris mentioned and underscored before our system is not set up for this our system is not set up to actually address and channel and truck children appropriately the fact that jacob has been in there and actually has seen kids in cages in in cages i do not understand why the american people i don't understand why congress's not acting mitch mcconnell this is on you ryan this is on you president bush president trump this is on you and milania avante trump this is a family business that you guys seem to be operating i hope that you were having conversations right now very seriously because we are watching we are organizing and this is not going to be okay chris as there's another interesting element of the reporting tonight they're saying that the government also plans to open a four shelter to house hundreds of young migrant children in houston where and this is the important part where city leaders denounced the move tuesday now st shelters do require some local licensing there is some state licensing involved that might be a new possible leverage point when this federal government is now trying to create a what are basically baby jails here in texas i mean i can't stress strongly enough i i'm in contact is reporter with a lot of folks that are organized and and people who work on immigration immigration lawyers and the outcry over this is like nothing people at seeing right so there's a moment right now of reckoning and here's what is going to happen when you talk about the obstacles that local leaders determine can put in in the place of carrying out this policy continued carrying out even now as we're speaking the trump administration will double down and they will try to.

"To say that she stands with us because this is a moment we must stand together as a nation as parents as humans with souls stephanie there are there are moments when the the news the curve of the news or of the what the country is paying attention to becomes what i might call a first lady moment a moment for the first lady to step forward and take a role in what the nation is going through this certainly would be one of those for any of the previous first ladies none of the previous first ladies ever had to deal with this because this policy has never been used before this is uniquely a donald trump policy but what would it mean to the future of this policy if the first lady of the united states got on a plane and got down here and it would be easier for her to do than it was for you to do to get down here to go into this facility behind me and see the children in there but more importantly i think for her to visit one of the secret facilities that is housing the girls and the now ultra secret facilities that are housing the babies the babies that she now knows are being held in custody by her husband can you imagine what it's like for those little children what i don't understand more than anything is why who does it serve what forgotten americans are going to have a better opportunity and better life because we are seeing babies taken away from their mothers who are not hardened criminals their mothers who maybe are going to fill some of those six thousand jobs we have here in this country that we're looking for people four simply don't understand an i can hope that is terrible and scary moment as this is let this be a moment of opportunity whether it's first lady melania trump whether it's i honor ivanka trump all the former presidents or first ladies to come together and say we as a nation or better than this this is a chance lawrence for us to say what's happening right now i cannot be a breaking point it must be an opportunity while we must come together and rise up if we don't do this in the name of children babies then who are we as a nation lawrence it seems like this is a unique opportunity for our first immigrant first lady this is a unique opportunity and unique obligation for our first immigrant first lady to come down here to pick up one of these children to pick up one of these untouchable babies who no one else is allowed to touch and see what the power of her hug immigrant immigrant could do for one of those children and what it could mean to this story and what it could mean to her husband's understanding of what he has done here as lawrence is there's winnowing along very well but if there's one thing that i could say that i am served she's clearly a very devoted mother everything you see that she does is centered around their son barron she's very protective of him that is what she does before she was first lady i have a twelve year old son and barren is twelve so before they were in this spotlight i used to see her around and i saw her with an all the time and this is a moment right behind me we're this detention center as we can't even see the kids inside about two hours ago there was an unbelievable rainbow on my team our new car and we said you know who doesn't get to see it the kids inside we have to fight for the future of these children they're not criminals they deserve an opportunity they deserve to be loved and cared about because that is what patriots and great americans do and just good people stephanie rule thank you very much for.

"Life to undergo that experience we work with many pro bono oftentimes those attorneys are conservative republicans who seek to engage in this work and many times these are some of the people whose minds of the most blown by these experiences because they see sometimes the first time in their lives of government that simply doesn't make sense that appears to be putting cruelty above justice for the mere sake of sending a message a message of deterrence and a message of this welcome not just to these refugees but to all immigrants all people of color all minorities living in this country everyone understands this message it's not a dog whistle it's a blow one from a what does it feel like it for you people who've been working on these issues year in year out to now have the kind of attention the country's attention that the border has not had before well it's it's good that we were having this visit so that people who are interested in making the policy decisions can see what is really happening the congressmen the senators who were here this week and last week it's good to have the decision makers huge so that they can see it from the for themselves and not just you know be reading about it but here the stories from the parents who have been separated from their children as particularly heartwrenching having to stop the interview halfway through because a mom cannot stop crying thinking the prospect of perhaps not seeing her fiveyearold daughter again it does feel seem like what is happening here is finally reaching into the hearts of americans all over the country for an hours johnson brian feely dila santos thank you all for starting us off and on discussions really richer that we have as i just reported at the beginning of the hour is rachel tried to report us at the beginning of the that we've just learned this new information from the associated press that the united states government is housing hundreds of babies and toddlers in three facilities somewhere in south texas could be somewhere right around where we are tonight during now from south texas from mcallen texas msnbc's stephanie rule stephanie what more do we know about this report lawrence the fact that we're even calling these detention centers tender age centers this is stunning you and i came down here to look at this margaret crisis and when you're actually in these parts it feels more like a migrant issue we need to address the border but what's happening to create these centers for babies toddlers for kids under the age of five this is not about politics this is not about policy lawrence it's about humanity president trump likes to call himself a patriot to be patriot is someone who vigorously fights and defends their country this happening right now if you're a patriot you need to stand up and fight for the name was america because american values and exceptionalism we're the luckiest we'll born in the land of the free and the hormone of the brave and we take silence seekers think about those moms lawrence your apparent and so i i am a five year old daughter home and when i left yesterday not man i'm not going to see her for two days thinking about those moms who travel the most treacherous path to asylum from honduras from el salvador from guatemala and they make their way here knowing that it is going to be such a difficult road and then the thought explained to me the policy who does it serve to rip these babies from their mother's arms i can't imagine as a mother something worse it this is not an assault on humanity i ask you malania trunk of vodka trump ivanka trump loves to instagram post the beautiful photos of she and her children besides the picture she posts and how she says she's an advocate for women devoted mother when you look other you'll become a sister to all other mothers knows children are hours and unless vodka trump is going to stand up and do something she no longer deserves the right.

"But i think if she knocked missouri she might be able to show so i would hope that she would find them in good health and jonathan the this report that we're getting tonight look at the reaction to that they are they are talking about three celebrities for what sounds like infant babies and toddlers it's it's mind blowing and i think that the insidious part of this process requires one to take a step back and look not just at the facilities where these children are being held many people can walk and seabright bedspreads conceits and crafts room and think okay this is fine but what is behind those walls is a large scale immigration deportation process that's being undertaken again each and every individual one of those children they are being thrown into immigration court in many cases with no attorney and they're asked to plead their cases we have gone to gorgeous to stop there for second just so the audience understands the scene we're talking about you're actually talking about a five year old being in one of these judicial proceedings being asked to represent an answer for himself or herself that's exactly right i myself sat in court and seen children with their little feet dangling from the respondents chair not touching the floor little glitter shoes and address and a judge leading over his bench in order to see her so as to speak with her all they can discuss this what is your name that's pretty dress but nevertheless there is a lot of money being spent by our government in the seoul design of deporting each and every one of these children these judges actually think these are real factfinding procedures when they've got a four year old sitting in front of them without an attorney well i don't have to tell you what i think i know that one immigration judge recently testified that he believed that toddlers is young as three or four years old who received these know your rights presentations from groups like races in these shelters are perfectly aware and equipped to follow along the proceedings it's absolutely absurd it would be laughable if it wasn't so sad an from of the president and his administration insisting that what they're doing now that they've only started doing in april late april and may they were never doing it before but they just started doing it they're insisting that this is the law and they have absolutely no choice they don't explain why they had a choice before april and why they don't have a choice now but because they're saying they don't have a choice they are now talking about building opening new facilities for infant babies because they have never had to deal with this number of infant babies before because this is a new policy right and it's outrageous that in two thousand eighteen in america were talking about building interment camps because that's what these are and when they keep claiming that the law requires the family separation as you point out they don't specify law requires that because there's absolutely no law that requires that is the ciro tolerance policy that the executive branch of the attorney general's could rescind today with the stroke of a pen what do you think we should call these places because i've been in jails of been in prisons and people want to use a phrase like detention center this is a kind of the season's over language is being cleansed when when you have cages and when you have locks and the conditions that i'm seeing in here these are what would be considered jails in any other setting what would you call them i am jail ministry for the diocese brownsville and i've been assigned to minister to these children so what do you think the right term is these places i think that they're jails if you're locked in a box and you can't get out you're in jail i think that anybody in that situation would feel that way but mile when we're seeing these tent facilities now we're talking about something that actually is different from jail because it is a lower level it is less commodious than the jail for example there's no possibility of say air conditioning or or different things that some jails have and so these things start to look like camps kind.
