"To reunite the youngest migrant children with their families now less than a week away. Separating families was one thing. But could the government put them back together? It wasn't clear. There was ever a plan for that. It was a massive logistical challenge. We're talking about thousands of children and shelters across the country. Parents locked up thousands of miles away. How is this going to happen? There are reports of mass confusion surrounding this process. Joining us now is Alex as the health and Human Services Secretary mister secretary. Thank you for your time this morning, there does seem to be a lot of confusion on this matter. What can you tell us this morning declare some of that up absolute thank you first off. There's absolutely no confusion on our part. We have the kids and we are working to comply with the court's order. And what that involves the government says everything's fine. But with a deadline of July tenth just a few days away. We call Sandy's mom yield up. Ula has no idea. What's going to happen next? Tells me there's a lot of confusion. She's had trouble reaching sandy in detention. And now she has to hand over documents proving she is related to the grandkids. Ilda doesn't know when or if sandy will see the kids again, and if they're all back together. How would they get to Ilda on the? ESE? Okay. A day before the deadline. The Trump administration admits it's not gonna make it maybe only half the youngest children will be reunited with their parents.

"Chad benson. Be breaking downpour after wick. All right. And you know, the president's going to be talking about immigration. Exactly, I doubt a wall to wall. Emmigration has been a cornerstone of this administration. And it was last year where the president decided to separate these families Obama did it sorry, okay? At the porter and a a lot of those children that were separated from their parents came right here to the valley, multiple private organizations that housed these. Children's separated from the payer among them are these facilities owned and operated by south west key. I think one of the biggest contractors, and they're the ones that a lot of these you know, these migrant youth that came into the country alone or separated from their parents. They were housed and what we're finding out now. While ago. Yes that southwest key facility in Glendale, the one going to there was a guy who was working there. Twenty five years old levian Pacheco who was sentenced yesterday to nineteen years in prison. Levian Pacheco was convicted of abusing at least seven teenage boys between two thousand sixteen and twenty seventeen on more than one occasion by was in charge of watching over the miners while they waited possible deportation. His sentencing increased after they learned he exposed some of his victims to HIV shelters were known to house migrant children waiting to be deported to facilities shut their doors after missing a deadline regarding employee background checks. So there was there were more than one, right? There were more than one allegations and instances of misconduct or abuse in facilities. Now, I remember this one this is the one where the guy potentially. Allegedly exposed chil- child victims to HIV he's HIV positive HIV positive, and he had an if you've got children in the car keep that in mind here folks, but that he had sexual contact with these boys, and there was also sexual abuse contact and abuse to different things, degree wise. They're both horror ethic. Yeah. But there are three instances of sexual abuse. And he's HIV positive nineteen years does the punishment fit the crime is that enough nineteen years in prison and a lifetime supervised release. And again, he would he want to see there's enough different degrees of sexual assault or abuse. Well, ones assault as far as the law as far as the loss concerned, you you may not make a distinction. No, I don't but as far as the laws concerned there were different levels. If you will. But it does seem like it's not a slap on the wrist nineteen years in prison nineteen years in prison going in for being a child molester child-abuser sexual assault on children still it's going to be a tough nineteen years. Okay. It still seems like. An easy low sentence. And why is there any as you heard in that report right there once they found out that he's HIV positive it increased his sentence. Okay. And it's kind of like an aggravated circumstances. Extenuating aggravating thought that I had about this. So. Southwest cay. We find out after the Arizona department of health services went in and started investigating because they have eleven shelters in Arizona if found three or five employee records it sampled. So we got all these employees. We're gonna pick out five of them three of those five were non compliant with fingerprinting requirements. They also found out that they were there were inefficiencies in background check records. And I'm wondering this, okay. Did southwest key. Not take those requirements. Seriously, fingerprints, background checks were they lax and allowing predators. Because that's what this monster is. He's a predator argued drawn to this job as an opportunity to take advantage of children. And. Did southwest cay just kind of become lax on these requirements because I mean, if something happens to a CAD, I mean, who's who's gonna come after us their their parents are in Mexico, and we're going to be depressed. The vulnerable population. Some of the most vulnerable children out there where they don't have. Let's say a parent or. Engaged advocate on their behalf. Right. Because even if these children are released a lot of them are released to a relative or a friend who is undocumented as well person's gonna come forward as part of the settlement with southwest cay had to close a shelter in downtown Phoenix, which was their biggest one in our state. They also had to give up a license for facility and young town and the federal government shutdown because that staff physically abused three mine there were dimmer multiple incident. I I admit that I couldn't keep them all straight. So how about this? So what's next in the wake of this monster being sentenced to nineteen years because he is HIV positive and he sexually abused boys. Repeatedly at this facility. We have a separate that would strengthen background check requirements for facilities like southwest key. And give Arizona department of health services authority to expect inspect them unannounced. Against that. I was gonna say and that wasn't happening already. Right. Maybe that's the bigger issue. Right. That we were allowing. Predators sexual predators. This was this was their opening because we know we know enough facility wasn't doing what they're supposed to do to protect these children. And that people like this predator would have been drawn to this knowing I can I can get through the gaps in the system. I don't I don't wanna hear about what your philosophy or thoughts are on immigration. I know it's a hot button issue in this country, especially right here in Arizona. These are children who've already been separated them have already been taken away from their their parents, which the judges some of company. Minor came by themselves. Choice. But that does not mean, you're subject to sexual abuse and sexual assault and rape as a function of that when you are in the care of the state. This southwest cay was a. Contracting facility by the government to houses children. And and listen, I'm sure they hundreds of thousands of kids over a period of time this that and the other. But boy, we certainly heard a bunch of stories where it strikes me. They just didn't have their protocols. They didn't have their background checks in a row and the more and more. These people slip through the cracks. Yeah. I think we're judged by by how we protect our most vulnerable germ. So if there is any opposition to this Senate proposal. I wonder who it is. Because all I'm going to be judging you, and I'm putting who's against protecting children from sexual abuse. Yeah. Where what's your please? Make that argument. Now. Go ahead. I wanted to who you have at it. Yeah. The these kids today need to be more sexually abused. That's what they really need. Please tell us about that. Millennials the millennial generation getting cancer different cancers as well younger and younger. Why cancer not just something new affects old people anymore know why what's fueling the cancer epidemic. Amongst the millennials. We'll talk about it right after Bob McClay gets us all cut up with our top stories..

"By Senator Ford and nationwide vision, and you also need to tune in for a very important announcement right at the opening of this show tomorrow that's tomorrow at four PM going to have a very special announcement for you. We have this this this is turning into a debacle. This is turning into exactly what it was in one thousand nine hundred ninety one with the nomination hearings for for Clarence Thomas. Anita hill was thrown into the mix last minute. I ended up being a spectacle. We are now repeating it. And the reason why we are repeating it is because the Republicans are letting this happen. It's amazing because you know, when we're talking about what was happening with the hill. This the sexual harassment. The pubic hair on a coke can. A head. Have you seen the movie long Dong, Phil? That's what it was. Now. This is like sexual assault. So we have to have a trial. We have to have an investigation. We to bring lawyers to ask questions. That's crazy. Former Scalia law Kirk out there. Is saying that this whole thing could be over next week before we even have all of the circus activity. There's a defender of president Donald Trump's a supreme court nominee Brett Cavanaugh. And he believes it won't be long until the embattled judge is exonerated of wrongdoing and confirmed to was post. Cavanaugh has of course, categorically denied all of these charges that Christina blassie Ford has brought against him. He's denied it unquestionably denied it. But you have a guy out there. His name is Ed Wieland, Ed Wieland. And he's been tweeting up. A storm is the president of the conservative think tank the ethics and public policy center, and he is well respected in DC and conservative circus circles, he said by one week from today, I expect that judge Cavanaugh will have been clearly vindicated on this matter specifically, I expect that compelling evidence will show his category. Oh denial to be truthful. There will be no cloud over him. Then he tweeted sexual assault is a terrible thing. It's victims suffer grievously. It's pre precisely because sexual assault is so terrible. That is deeply unjust. When someone is mistakenly even good faith mistakenly accused of having committed it, everyone should rejoice. When the mistake is found. Oh. And the sooner the mistake is discovered. The better at wheeling tweet it or what is he implying is he implying that Christine Ford have may have mistakenly mistaken cavenaugh for somebody else. And of course, Senator hatch recently suggested a tutor dismay of some that. This might be a case where four might be mixed up quote mixed up. So my goodness. This is pretty amazing. So we have somebody out there will sounds like from his tweet from the Twitter machine that he has some insight information on a missed blassie Ford's accusation. And that this could be this could be mistaken identity. Meaning somebody probably did put his hands on. But but but it wasn't judge Gavin. Aw. We're gonna change gears here for a moment. The big story here. Locally is southwest. Cay southwest. Key is been is been warned by the state. They're licensed might be in jeopardy. Southwest.

"News station. KTAR news on ninety two three FM Bruce Saint chiefs and Pamela Hughes. You know, there's been a situation that has been developing here in the valley for a couple of months, this is involving migrant children and the shelters that they're placed in south west key is a facility whose name you may have become familiar with their about thirteen of those shelters ran by that organization here in our state and recently, one of their former employees pled guilty to sexually assaulting several children at one of the facilities, and that individual also HIV positive now that incidents took place prior to the zero tolerance policy that the Trump administration had set. It's important distinction. Jeff mon- because after the zero tolerance policy went into place and families we're being separated. These shelters became quite busy. They had a lot of kids that were being put in them. And what we're finding out right now is that. Southwest cay has not done the background checks the fingerprint clearances necessary for supervisors and employees at their facilities. They were given a deadline to meet that requirement to have all employees background checked. And they missed the deadline. State health department says southwest cay failed to provide appropriate background checks of employs Anna's moving to revoke their licence. The governor order view of all southwest key facilities earlier this summer. Southwest tells KTAR apologizes for missing the September fourteenth deadline to go through the clearance of more than two thousand employees and they requested a meeting with the department of health services leadership as soon as possible, but a meeting and horses Jim cross KTAR senior reporter. But a meeting for what I mean, it just sounds to me like, I shouldn't interpret it this way. I'm sure, but it just sounded me in that statement like they were more upset about getting caught than about. What had transpired? Well. The meeting may. Be about whether or not they're going to appeal because they've got thirty days to appeal to a hearing or enter into settlement talks with the state is that what this is about. There's a lot of questions here that just have not gotten answers, Jeff among them. Are they going to file to appeal? I want to know as well. How long did they have to meet that September fourteenth deadline a week a month a couple of months because they have an estimated two thousand Arizona employees a random check of their Tucson facility staffers found eight employees did not have the required background check. So it's unlikely that one hundred percent of those thousand employees passed a background check were they in the process of all the background checks meeting. Hey, listen. We did the fingerprints. We filled out all the paperwork. We sent it off. And we haven't gotten the results back yet. Or did. They just totally. Disregard this deadline said we don't care. It didn't move forward because these are people that are responsible for that the wellbeing of children there are expectations in standards for which we've set in the states. Well, let me let me pose a question to if you are aware how much communication was going on between the state and south west key. And weren't they notified isn't there some way that and again, I'm gonna put this on south west key that they get to the state before this deadline hits. And said, look, we're having some problems here. We're not gonna make this deadline. Well, you know, what they've had problems for quite some time because the guy who pled guilty couple of weeks ago, I believe that had been kind of making its way through the court system for quite some time again that whole situation took place prior to these zero tolerance policy. He was never background checked. So we know that a while ago. The issue had presented itself. That these people had not been background checked. And I wanna point out to folks because I don't assume everybody understands how this happens southwest cay gets money from the federal government, and I don't know. The state, but but but they're regulated by the state of which they're operating follow state law. Government organizations that are dealing with children schools are a great example of it. If you're going to be alone with a child at school, you have to have a fingerprint clearance, my sister's an education, if I were going to be somebody who was going to be on my daughter's campus regularly as a as a volunteer or something I would have to have clearance..

"Here in studio with us right now is KTAR senior. Reporter Jim cross who has been following the development of this story. All morning a story that has been developing for quite some time. Good morning, Jim, Pamela. Good morning. Well, you know, southwest key is something that we've talked quite about here. A quite a bit about here on KTAR. But I'm not going to assume that our listeners are all that familiar with it. They they have some thirteen shelters here in the state. They started to get under tremendous amount of scrutiny in the wake of the president zero tolerance policy down on the border. This is where children were being separated from their families. And we needed to put those children somewhere. A lot of those kids came here to Zona and there have been several accusations against workers within these facilities of abuse. Most likely there have been a lot of serious allegations about sexual abuse. One just to stand out. One was convicted former worker was convicted on seven cow. Counts of sexually abusing teenage boys nother worker was accused of sexually abusing a fourteen year old girl at the center again, as you pointed out this all started after the separation of children from their parents at the border. The children are being held at southwest key centers around the state of Arizona, some of them now in order to work with children if you are at a facility, whether it be a school that gets funding from the government or whether you're at a facility like this gets funding from the government, there are certain checks and balances that go into place. I know that you've had educators in your family jam. I know that you've had indicators in your family, Jeff educators in my family, all of our family members and had to go through a fingerprint clearance in order to work with kids. And that is what the state is looking at right now, it appears that this the shelters the southwest cay shelters missed a very important deadline explained that to me Jim deadline was September fourteenth. Which they've now apologized for a statement. They sent us about three or four sentences long south was key apologized for not getting everything done as far as the backgrounds by the fourteenth of September. And they have now requested a meeting as soon as possible with the leadership of the department of health services. From the sound of Jim there are some things they could probably do in the interim before a meeting when I heard the response. I thought what do you need a meeting for you know, what needs to be cleaned up cleaned it up right and characters the director for the state health services. Didn't totally take them out with us she'd thirty thirty days to appeal this which should from reading what I just read. I think they have every intention of doing that. So she's at least giving them the opportunity to get things squared away to meet the state requirements and stay in business on this. We okay, so the may appeal, but what's so astonishing to me about all of this is we as a state in south west key is a facility has both known for an extended period of time that they have not been following the letter of the law in getting their employees background check. Because there wasn't individual who was arrested pre zero tolerance policy who pled guilty to sexually assaulting some children. He was also HIV positive, and it was during that whole investigation that we found out that southwest cay has been failing to follow proper protocol and background check in finger clearance. These people were talking about children here. This isn't hard to. Do. So southwest key is given an opportunity to make it. Right. But I don't know if they should do. We know what would happen to these kids, Jim if they lose the appeal, or if they don't appeal we have been attempting to contact the feds on this and are still waiting to hear back on what the plan would be right now that it's completely up in the air as far as we know we're waiting on a federal response to see what happens with his children, but this has been on the radar as Pamela mentioned for years years, and specifically in the last few months since this came to a head with the border separations, the governor back in June address this and you could almost see a blueprint being laid out when he spoke to KTAR because he said the state is going to take a look at this state is going to keep a close eye on this. The key is protecting these children making they're making sure they're safe. So even back in June. You kind of see the Genesis of this. We've got some audio from that interview a couple of months ago. This is governor Doug Ducey he's now at speaking directly to what has happened in the last twenty four hours with southwest key. This was a couple of months ago, but it is still pertinent to the discussion. We're having take a listen if there is a complaint that that happens with a child inside a state facility or a non federal facility, it's the state's role and responsibility to investigate it. Do we know how long Jim that southwest key was given to have all of their employees background check before the deadline of September fourteenth approach.

"Let one's house and we went to his office at the southwest cay headquarters in addition to the migrant shelters south west he continues to do. Juvenile Justice work they run after school programs summer camps, and even a charter, school east Austin college prep their. Headquarters which, are in east Austin looked like a large corporate office. Building and inside Kwan's? Office there's a mosaic rendering of Martin Luther King junior there's a plaque of his doctoral degree. From Harvard and there's a poster with a quote from, the revolutionary out You. Know this is one of my favorite sayings of. Harare who said that at the risk of seeming ridiculous the true revolutionary is guided by great feelings of love And I'd, like to think that that's who we are and what we try to do we sat down for our interview and that's when one told us that several months ago he noticed that something was changing at the shelters that he was running for migrant children for the last you would have a number of kids increasing. On a, regular basis, anywhere from twenty five to fifty gets all of a sudden you begin to see. More seventy five to, one hundred kids a day coming in he said he actually I? Heard about, the, zero tolerance. Policy of separating children and parents on the news and so, you know Dr staff and are we getting these unaccompanied, minor kids been separate say said yes we. Are and then the difference too was that there were smaller kids many smaller kids once as he gathered. His senior staff and so. We have, to make a decision and in the end we felt somebody's gotta take care of these kids and. These we don't take them somebody else got take him Could be a private for profit company that does it. And his team had, to make a choice were they going to shelter these kids who, were taken, from, their parents. Or were they going to say no and as a result, risk losing their contract with our that happens to make, up eighty five percent of their budget so. We just geared up our staff to begin to serve a lot more younger kids and I think we. Did a good job but People, see you as this evil pressure for having done that very evil person for having taken these kids that had been separated from their families and. I think for some people they just can't get over that that that's, a decision that we made I asked. If he grasped the moral dilemma of that decision the moral dilemma bean if I collaborate with the US government in. This policy than I'm in one way or another implicated in the policy as opposed to, saying I will have nothing to do with, that I, think that's the problem and I think that It may. Be part of what I, fail? To realize in the beginning right But the decision wasn't that easy because the decision was really all we've been doing, for twenty years was gonna end for us and we'll we'll willing, to end that the way he saw it he had to comply with the government or get, out of the business of, sheltering kids. Altogether despite his role in housing the children one says that he. Is not in favour of zero tolerance policy I think everybody in this country Pass come to understand that this. Is policies terrible traumatic for kids It's just a, very, difficult policy too It was a very difficult proc- create. A lot of problems. In this way it doesn't exist anymore And my hope is that that's the. Way it's gonna stay After the Trump..
