Texas Abortion Law: US Supreme Court Votes Not to Block Ban

"Earlier. This month in the middle of the night. The supreme court refused to block a texas law that bans most abortions that law is now the most restrictive abortion measure in the nation it bans abortions after about six weeks of pregnancy and establishes a sort of bounty system. That allows anyone to sue those involved in facilitating an abortion. This is a bigger than texas. The decision could be a blueprint of gutting. Roe v wade. The supreme court ruling that legalized abortion nationally is going to play out in the courts and while it does groups on the ground are figuring out how to adopt is ena. Zamora is the executive director of the fraud data fund they provide support and funding for those seeking abortions in texas rio grande valley. We're gonna talk about what this decision means for those seeking care and where the spite goes from here. A lot of us are in texas right now. We're not looking at this through the lens of someone who was there where using where in texas are you. I'm located in the rio grande valley so deep south texas along the us mexico border. What are you hearing from people in texas. There's a lot of confusion around the law and just people being upset. I think a lot of people think that this law just went way too far the biggest concern for most of the people who do abortion funding work is. How are we going to help. People get their abortion care in your own words. What is this legislation. Do so sp eight what it does is. It bans abortion past six weeks in texas. It is essentially a complete abortion banned because by the time. Most people know that they're pregnant. They're unable to get an abortion and texas. This also has a very cruel and specific civil litigation our civil cause of action that allows anybody to sue anybody else who helps quote unquote to aid and abet someone and getting abortion care in texas past six weeks

Now the biden administration is deploying fema for ninety days to help move arriving children from crowded patrol stations into homes or shelters while their cases work through the system at the border in el paso earlier today. Our cameras captured three migrants using a ladder to climb the fence shortly after border patrol agents took them into custody. If they're adults bill almost certainly be sent back in texas. Rio grande valley video shows some migrants crossing the river in rickety rafts apprehended then held in tent camps. Our cities and counties on the border don't have the resources to deal with this. Republicans called the increase in border crossings. A crisis that they say the biden administration has worsened by loosening. Some trump era immigration policies including no longer requiring would be asylum seekers to remain in mexico. The biden open border policies. That are inviting even more illegal immigration and actually have created this humanitarian crisis. Democrats and immigration activists culture that policy in humane. The dangers for asylum seekers in children among them who are being sent back to mexico is extreme and the biden administration should act quickly to ensure that those people are able to find protection in the united states as required by our laws. Garrett's with us garrett. Is this pace of crossing expected to keep up. It should pick up kate. The number of migrants expected to arrive at the border should only increase through the spring and summer months in fact. Dhs is intimidating as many as one hundred seventeen thousand unaccompanied minors could arrive at the border this year. A record

"This is all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish. Elsa Chang, women's professional hockey. In North America is in chaos, the Canadian women's Hockey League shut down this week. Meaning the only national women's Hockey League left. Standing in North America is in the US and yesterday more than two hundred players rocked women's hockey further by banding together, and demanding a stable and sustainable professional league these players, including some of the world's best say they will not play in any North American league this year until that happens for more on all of this. We turn now to Katie string of the athletic. Welcome. Thank you. Thanks for having me on. So how dire is the financial situation for a typical pro women's hockey player? These days. Yeah, it's tough. And I think the important thing to remember is that this is not the primary gigs for most of these players. These players are putting a tremendous amount of time in energy in heart into training in really competing at a very high level for their teams, but also maintaining regular day jobs as well because they can't afford to play hockey fulltime. Absolutely, absolutely. What is an average women's hockey player professional women's hockey player? Make these days it varies, and that's important to keep in mind. However, if you take the end whol, for example, which is the sole professional women's league remaining in North America each team has a salary cap of one hundred thousand dollars that has to be split amongst that roster and allocated there's generally roughly twenty players per team. The lowest paid player end whol makes around two thousand dollars for an entire season. Correct. Like in basketball, the NBA and WNBA have a really tight relationship. Why why don't we see the same kind of relationship between the NHL and women's hockey? You might see that it probably will not be next season. But that is a big reason why we saw these players come together in solidarity on Thursday is because their desire, even though it was not stated explicitly is to have a league one unified league with NHL backing because they do believe that that would provide them the best financial support infrastructure in platform in terms of exposure will why has the NHL in the first place been hesitant to forge a better connection with women's hockey. The NHL is extremely wary of seeming paternalistic or they don't wanna give the impression that they're big footing any current leagues in existence. So. So what Gary Bettman the Commissioner of NHL has said repeatedly is that they will not get involved unless there is no viable option for players to play post collegiately in a professional sense is women's professional hockey, though. Is it financially sustainable in North America? I mean are there enough fans out there to keep it going? I think that's a really good question and one that people are asking we know that the quality of the product on the ice is very exciting. We've seen that in international playing competition. But in terms of attendance, you know, the top two teams in the end of last year. I think had average attendance rates of between one thousand and twelve hundred people per game. How does that compare to NHL game ten thousand to anywhere upwards of almost twenty thousand? So that's why a lot of people feel like there would have to. Be any backing to provide it some sort of stability at least in the early going in then also to commit resources in develop at a grassroots level in generate interest among youth hockey players to get this thing really rolling to the point where it can sustain itself. Katie Strang is a senior writer for the athletes, she joins us via Skype. Thank you very much for joining us today. Thank you for having me now to the Texas Mexico border and some of the latest efforts to deal with the influx of migrant families and unaccompanied children and just the last two weeks. The department of homeland security has built an open to new ten legs structures in the cities of El Paso, Donna to house those crossing house those crossing the border, Texas public radio's Rinaldo Leon Jooste junior. Takes us there. A forty thousand square foot white tent like structure now sits next to the Donna Dabo international bridge in Texas Rio Grande valley, Carmen qualify as an executive officer reported patrol and his Leaney a tour what you are in right now is referred to as one of the one of four detention pods and are approximately eight thousand square feet the facility is meant to house migrant families and unaccompanied minors for no more than seventy two hours. Intake. In a processing area in you'll be able to see intake. On the next week. The pod were in has high ceilings with heart lake walls and stock of thin black plastic mattresses pushed up against the wall while the facility is designed to hold five hundred people, but could fold more. I hope it's enough. I don't know. And we would like to see. The float slowdown as well. As to stop. This is one of two new structure designed to detain migrants. When the upper handed.

He thinks it's very important to his base used in two thousand sixteen he'll use it again in twenty twenty. That's why he was in collects go Mexico this past Friday saying this the system is full can't take anymore, whether it's asylum. Whether it's anything you wanted illegal immigration can't take anymore. We can't take our country's full. Of course. That's not true. The US is facing a looming labor shortage, and it goes against the entire idea of America, which was built on. Immigration. The president has even mocked asylum seekers suggesting that he doesn't believe anyone could be fleeing for their lives from Central America. As far as he's concerned asylum is a kind of scam. Switching gears. I want to talk about former vice president Biden, he's having his own me to moment. President Trump was relatively restrained about it at first, but that did not last long. No it didn't at first. He waved off questions saying that he didn't really want to answer the questions about Biden that lasted about a day or two then he re tweeted a video from a pro-trump pack that doctored Biden's apology. Video showed Biden popping up in the background cartoonish head putting his hands on the real Biden's shoulders. And so he has waded into a new chapter with a new enemy and foil somebody he wants to denigrate and make fun of Biden for the first time got into the Twitter wars tweeted in response to that quote, you are on the job and presidential as always. So as we know Biden is widely expected to get into the race later this month. Probably after Easter we know how the pundit class and the Twitter verse responded to his metoo moment. They don't think he's. Handled. It very well. What we don't know is what democratic voters are going to think about Biden that was NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson. Thank you.

But there's no official contract. Mayor Selena says he sees both sides of the wall debate border patrol and homeland security say they need the fence in order to their jobs, and if they say, they need it.

"Learn more at AWS's how dot com I'm David Brancaccio in New York starting with President Trump in the state of the union last evening using his version of class analysis in an attempt to drive home one of his signature points. No issue better illustrates, the divide between America's working class and America's political class. Then illegal immigration. We can all agree America's working class is not monolithic. It is a diverse. Group. Marketplace's immigration reporter and a Euler has been getting views from south, Texas. Andy good morning. Morning, david. What about the president's view here that America's working class ends up paying for immigrants who've come here illegally, reducing their jobs in their wages that claim only works if the president assumes that these jobs that immigrants take are the ones that American citizens would take instead at those same wages, and the majority of studies show that simply isn't the case. Now, there's a lot of debate on both sides. But in fact, many studies show that immigration has a positive effect on the economy, especially in those communities on the border and many of those folks who live in border towns, simply depend on cross border commerce for their livelihood. Now. You recently spent a week in south Texas Rio Grande valley, a spot where preparations for wall building are already underway. Did you get a sense of what President Trump sees as this working class versus political class divide? Yeah. I spent basically every day speaking with people at the border about exactly that in from what I could tell it simply didn't really. We seem like a class issue. But instead the divide seems to be about people who live there on the border, the understanding of the dynamics of how interconnected those people are on both sides, and those who don't live there folks in Washington who just don't necessarily get it. I spoke with so many people and what the president calls, the the working class US citizens who live in Mexico and cross the border every day to work in Texas and earned dollars Mexicans with visas who crossed the border every day to work and shop dual citizens who crossed the border into the US and go to school or visit cousins, and then returned to Mexico for dinner. And almost to a person they talk about the border is little more than an inconvenient passport. Check. They think their neighbors in Mexico is just that their neighbors not job Steelers or necessarily a drain on the local economy. In fact, they depend on those folks on both sides to to support it. Marketplace's Andy Euler getting views in south Texas there now to the part where the president touched on a subject linking national security with how the federal government spends money the subject here is the US withdrawal from the Reagan era nuclear arms treaty with Russia really have no choice, perhaps we can negotiate a different agreement, adding China and others. Or perhaps we can't in which case we will outspend and out innovate all others.

"Well, given. Drugs and stop grind that. That's immoral. That's right. That's exactly what it is the walls. Not immoral. What you are doing Pelosi. Galore is immoral and guess what? Group. Senate Democrats are aiming to block President Trump for building the proposed border wall by declaring a national emergency. Roughly a dozen Dem's getting behind the Bill was introduced laid out yesterday afternoon that would prohibit Trump from building the wall using funds drawn from either the US Army Corps of engineers or the DOD construction accounts. Senator Tom udall, Democrats, socialists, New Mexico is one of those in this. It's called the restrictions against the legitimate declarations emergency repair reappropriation door, the raider to get it. How long did it take those Westley Democrats to come up with that the raider act? So again interesting we'll see what happens on that. But the president we are now being told. The US government is preparing to begin construction of the more border walls and fencing in the south Texas Rio Grande valley likely on federally owned land, which has been set aside as a wildlife refuge property. So apparently congress last March approved more than six hundred million for thirty three miles of new barriers wall fence barrier. Obstacle whatever in Rio Grande valley. And again, there's new mcallen, Texas where there's just nothing there right now. Frank nothing whatsoever. This is brand new whatever you wanna call it a barrier system in the Rio Grande valley, which is desperately needed. Because that's where most of the eagle illegals are crossing. Because there's nothing standing in their way with all the personnel. We're sending down there. I'm talking about the military personnel before all of a sudden done if they continue their presence down there because these caravans are not stopping obviously. And so they're they're going to need all the help. They they can get down there until a wall is built. It's it's money. That's being put out, and it's it's put out and it's gone. You know, because it's nothing left permanently. Like a wall would be. And so the money that's being spent right now on a on on on human presence at at the border could very easily be spent on something that's going to be permanent wall. Yeah. I'm looking at the images now of looks like Mexican police in riot gear on the on the border on the Mexican side of the border. So they've gotten the message. They don't wanna let these illegals aliens illegal aliens across the border into the United States because I know they're going to get cut off soon. The new center for immigration studies analysis of the census bureau's latest population projections, we hear this by the year twenty sixty that's forty years from now. I immigration will add seventy five million people to the population. In in the next forty years. Seventy five million. That's a little under two million. A is twenty-five percent of what our current population is wrong. Can you in the next forty years where where are we today three hundred fifty million or so? Yeah. Three twenty five. So again, it's taken us two hundred and what forty three years to get there. Whatever the case may be in just forty years, we will increase that. By almost thirty percent. Twenty five percent, whatever it is. Oh, that's just those are staggering figures the prophet of doom as I call them on the Fox News channel, the judge. Napolitano. Because he now is all over. He's almost these borderline never-trumper. Chef smith. He's on every day, which the, you know, the Trump Bashar ship Smith. Saying that there's a good chance the president will declare national emergency to obtain border wall funding. The Senate majority leader Mitch is advised against it. Now, the prophet of doom Andrew Napolitano, predicting courts won't block the move. Anyway. Quote, I think the laws very clear, I think the president's been advised of it that if he signed an executive order declaring a national emergency and directing the military to spend money that has not been expressly appropriate for the wall, or that has not been expressly appropriate for eminent domain since much of the real estate where they want to build the walls privately owned think it's pretty clear that the courts will stop him from doing say the courts, all you need is one judge safe from the nutty nutty ninth out there and on the west coast. And of course, whatever that judge's decision is let's say it's to impose some kind of an injunction. The president couldn't build a wall or use any funding from other agencies are on on spent money. The you could go you could go judge shopping all you want. My question is when we talked about this before we all agree that one judges opinions shouldn't apply nationwide. But if that's going to be the case, then what's preventing the Trump administration from going to do a little judge shopping on their own and getting another judge that's going to counter that. That's true. With those kinds of contradictions that goes to the supreme court. But here's how would be fast tracked now. But again, you never know with John Roberts. Let's say it takes a while. What happens when you have one judge saying instituting an injunction the other saying, it's perfectly legal. Well, you could do like Obama didn't ignore it. Would you could do that? Or there's an there is a backup plan here. We'll talk about that here in just a second. It's eight fourteen five or.
