"This is NPR news. It's Katy news. I'm Tara Siler this week the government accountability office or GAO released its first review of the federal response to last year's natural disasters including wildfires in California. According to the report the wildfires and hurricanes Harvey Irma and Maria, basically overwhelmed the Federal Emergency Management agency or FEMA case UD sukey Lewis has done a lot of reporting on the response and cleanup after last October's wildfires today. She spoke with cake UD's Brian watt and began by asking her what the GAO report found while the report really did focus on this idea of being overwhelmed by so many disasters kind of coming all at once. You know, beginning back in August with hurricane Harvey. It was just one thing after another and the October firestorm that hit here in northern California can have came right in the middle of this. This report also noted that California's unique. The housing crisis. Really problem about twenty five thousand people registered for help from FEMA many of them looking for housing, and it was a real challenge for FEMA to kind of help get people in housing built housing, in some cases, and one other thing that I thought was kind of interesting is that originally the federal government had kind of underestimated the level of complexity that this wildfire disaster entailed, and so they didn't deploy as many resources as maybe they should have in the initial response in this succession of disasters one right after the other created a staffing issue. Right. Yeah. Staffing was a really big issue. One statistic that they had in. This report was that less than half of the FEMA personnel. That were deployed kind of at the peak of this disaster response were quote, unquote qualified for the jobs that they were doing. And so there was issues with training and. The report also notes that California officials told the GAO that a lot of the FEMA personnel that came to California to help with wildfire response and cleanup were just coming off of hurricane duty. And they'd only had a day or two break. And so people were exhausted and burned out and kind of heading back into another disaster you've reported on some ongoing issues that wildfire survivors are still experiencing with debris removal were those issues covered in this report, one of the issues that we've talked about before Brian and that FEMA officials spoke to me about earlier this year is the inadequate contracting mechanisms that were in place, and that was also highlighted in this report, so basically because the army corps had never done debris removal before none of the mechanisms to deal with toxic Ashish and private properties were in place, and this resulted in some delays and issues is there a sense that FEMA needs to get used to this level. Of demand. Yes, that's definitely reflected in this report. Is this kind of growing understanding that a cost and the need for federal help for these huge disasters are only going to go up not down and that FEMA needs to kind of do something to deal with these staffing issues, but also kind of re calibrate the way hazard mitigation works. So basically help local communities. Get disaster plans in place ahead of time because that can really help when disaster strikes to have some kind of plan and just that climate change is really going to make all of these disasters kind of more intense and more frequent moving forward, and that we really need to all kind of get on the same page about preparing for disasters. Whether they're wildfires or hurricanes or whatever reporters sukey Lewis, speaking with Brian watt. And I'm Tara Siler, kqed news. I'm Robin young Greg Kavanagh answers questions about gun.

"On public radio at five thirty it's gate you eating news i'm tara siler there is a lot of confusion about the trump administration's current practice of separating immigrant parents from their children when they crossed the southern border illegally immigration editor tikey hendrix is here to help us understand this policy change and tychy first off i just want us to take a listen to homeland security secretary kirsten nielsen who spoke to reporters at the white house today the laws prohibit us from detaining families while they go through prosecution for illegally entering the border and while they go through prosecutions for immigration proceedings so tikey what has changed why can't families be detained together while the parents immigration case is being judy kate right so there are two things that govern how children in immigration custody must be treated one's a law passed by congress it's called the trafficking victims protection reauthorization act that tv pr a and the other there's a legal agreement the federal government entered into in nineteen ninetyseven the flora's settlement agreement and flora's says that children should be released from custody to a family member or guardian whenever possible and if they must be detained it should should be in the least restrictive setting possible so around two thousand fourteen when there was a surge of parents with children fleeing here from central america the obama administration began a pretty widespread practice of locking them in family detention center together together parents with kids and family detention but a federal judge in los angeles ruled that ice jails are not a place for children and so short term placement is okay but not longer than twenty days and then so in response to that the obama administration shifted to releasing parents with kids usually on bond or with one of these electric ankle monitors to wait for their asylum case to be heard but when president trump came in he said the presumption should be to keep people in deportation proceedings locked up and so in order to lock up the parents in ice detention they are taking the kids away and giving them to the agency that's in charge of unaccompanied minors that's called the office of refugee resettlement so how long can so these kids now kept for canal may be detained for twenty days no they they once they're in the custody of the office of refugee resettlement they don't have to be released in twenty days this agency has shelters all over the country for children and they're really at capacity now the number of kids they're holding has skyrocketed since this news zero tolerance policy of prosecuting all of the adults in criminal court for the misdemeanor of illegal entry so by putting the parents into federal criminal custody the government is now essentially forcing itself to take the children away and give them to o our our and that agency should be looking for a family member to place the child with but of course if they have arrived with their parent and the parent is detained there may not be an adult to release the child to an or can hold these children indefinitely can you give us an example of how this is playing out on the ground and he cases you've heard about yeah right now i'm looking into the case of a father from guatemala who reached the border near san diego in early june he'd fled home with his five year old daughter the man found a border patrol agent and asked for asylum and at the border patrol station the girl was physically taken from her father and he said that no one had told him where his daughter was for about ten days and he was so anxious to be reunited with his child that he just gave up on pursuing his asylum claim and accepted an expedited deportation that's k q immigration.
