Haiti's Interim Leader Requests US Troops

"Has asked the United Nations and the United States for troops to protect key infrastructure as the country reels from Wednesday's as Wednesday's assassination of President Jovan Elmo Ease. Senior American officials said there was no plan to send military forces the U. S intelligence officers would assist the investigation. Adam Isaacson is from the Washington office on Latin America, a US based advocacy group. 80 really needs help in forming a legitimate government. And of course, the those who are claiming to be legitimate government. They barely have enough security forces to keep order right now in the country, So you know they've taken this rather Outrageously risky step of asking the United States to perform security duties for them, and I don't think the United States is at all interested in another occupation or troop presence in Haiti. I don't think the United States wants to put any of its own personnel in harm's way in Haiti.

"Thank you for having me. That's Adriana Beltran, program director at the Washington office on Latin America. Well part of Vice President Harris portfolio is tackling the influx of unaccompanied Children crossing the US Mexico border. Once they're in U. S custody, they might have to represent themselves before a judge in immigration court. Think about that for a second, a kid. Child, maybe as young as four or five years old. Probably does not speak a lot of English or any English standing before a judge trying to make the case why they shouldn't be deported. That's what eventually happens to the hundreds of kids housed at the Long Beach Convention Center and the Pomona Fairplex here in Southern California. How do you prepare a child for that? How do you help them understand? Complex immigration and asylum law. We're going to talk about that. Now with Lindsay Taz Loski. She's the executive director of Immigrant Defenders Law Center. That's a nonprofit immigrant rights law firm that's been working with these kids. At the Long Beach Convention Center. Welcome to press play. Thanks for having me Madeline. So you've also been at the Pomona Fair plaques. And what are these two places like? How many kids are there now? And what are the conditions? So at the height in Long Beach we had about 700 kids. There's slightly less than 200 now and in Pomona. There's capacity for actually 2500. But currently we just have a few 100 Children at the Fairplex. You know, these facilities were designed to hold many more Children, and they may in the future, but right now they're at a lower capacity. Unfortunately, in some other places around the country in Texas that places like Fort Bliss, there's many thousands of Children in conditions that are not as optimal is what we're seeing here in in Southern California. Why are there different conditions in different places if they're all being run by HHS? You know, a lot of it has to do with the fact that here in Southern California we had our local elected officials, really, you know, stuck their necks on the line in terms of putting it out there that they were going to be responsible for the conditions. And so we had Mayor Garcia and Supervisor Solis who provided a lot of oversight. We also have organizations like mine. That's an independent legal organization. That's there. Every day. We're able to monitor conditions were able to meet independently with every single child and really talk to them about what their rights are. So I always say it's great for kids in government custody to have a teddy bear or to have toys. But the most important thing is to have a lawyer so that you have someone who's there to protect your rights. Well, how many of these kids Have a lawyer actually to protect their rights. So every single child who's at the Long Beach Convention center, the Pomona, Fairplex will have the ability to meet with a lawyer from Immigrant defenders Law Center, But unfortunately, once they leave government custody, no child is guaranteed to have an attorney represent them in court, So the real due process crisis is going to come when these kids leave government custody. And are in their home communities, and they have to go before an immigration judge. But in the United States, we don't have a system that allows any child to have, you know, a government funded attorney that's there to fight for them so many Children and we see it daily in downtown Los Angeles and an immigration courtroom. Many of these Children will be, you know, sent into a courtroom with a trained government prosecutor. They're arguing that they should be deported from the United States, and unfortunately we have Children every single day who continue to go before immigration judges without an attorney by their side. Luckily for the Children at the convention center at the Fairplex, even though they're not having to go to court while they're in custody, we are able to have classes with every single one of them where we prepare them at least to be able to have a fighting chance when they leave to explain to them. The importance of finding a lawyer and to really orient them to the deportation proceedings that they're each in. So what does that look like? How do you talk to let's say an eight year old about what it's going to look like and what they're going to have to do inside a courtroom? Well, what we really try and do is and explain it to them in a way that a child can understand which, as you can imagine, is incredibly difficult, especially because some of the kids were talking to her as young as 56 years old. So we really try and focus on things that they can't understand. We show them pictures of a courtroom along with cartoon figures of who they can expect to see and we teach them about what their rights are so that they have a right to an interpreter so that they can understand what's happening. We explain what the judge's role is what the prosecutors role is. And we explain most importantly, that there are lawyers like us all over the country who are non profit organizations, pro bono lawyers, um, and that the importance of them finding a lawyer who can help them. The reason that that's so important is because in deportation proceedings if you have a lawyer, you are 1100% more likely to win your case. So for a child who could potentially face you know, death or harm if they were sent back to their country, the stakes couldn't be higher. And so we try and explained in ways that they can understand how important it is to find a lawyer and to understand what's happening. One of the ways we specifically do that, for example, the concept of if they don't go to court. They could be ordered deported in their absence. But if I say to a six year old child, you could be ordered deported in there in your absence. They're not going to understand me. So we explain it. You know if you had a soccer game and you were playing against another team, and you didn't show up. What would happen and the kids will shout out answers, including while you would lose, you lose automatically and we say, Yeah, Immigration court is the same way. If you don't show up, you lose automatically. But if you show up, you have a chance to win your case and winning your case means being able to stay here safely..

Kamala Harris, in Guatemala, Discusses Plan to Deter Migrants

"Is in Guatemala today. If the start of her trip is any sign yesterday, Air Force to had to turn back after take off for a safety check. The assignment is going to be a challenge. Mrs Harris first foreign trip Mission, President Joe Biden gave her find ways to reduce migration to the US by improving conditions in Central America. One of the big challenges in the region is how ineffective governments there have been at solving the simple, grinding problems of daily life in their countries. Speaking from Guatemala City today, Harris said she and Guatemalan President Alejandro Geometry talked about a key issue Corruption on the issue of corruption. Uh, the conversation that I had with President Janet Today was very Frank. And very candid, and I think this is a quality that he and I appreciate in each other. Following all of this is Adrianna Beltran with the watchdog group, The Washington office on Latin America. She said Harris is right to focus on corruption. And unfortunately, over the last several years, what you've seen across the region, including Guatemala has been a backlash against anti corruption, anti impunity efforts and increasingly actions by corrupt elites to undermine democracy and the rule of law. So as long as we're on the subject, explain in simple terms how corruption actually reduces the impact of USA to Central America. When we talk about corruption in Guatemala in Central America, we're not talking about a few bad apples, a few corrupt government officials that accept bribes But what we're talking about is systems that have been put in place where corrupt elites and in the case of Guatemala, increasingly tied to criminal groups have taken hold the government institutions And have used their positions of power to enrich themselves by embezzling millions of public funds at the expense of the majority of the population.

Blinken Heads to Middle East to Build on Israel-Hamas Cease-Fire

"The Middle East. President Biden asked him to go, but only after a ceasefire was in place, ending the latest military conflict between Israel and the Palestinian militant group Hamas. NPR's Michele Kelemen reports. Secretary, Blinken has been cautious about jumping into Middle East diplomacy. He started quietly with phone calls while he was on a trip to the Arctic. Plans for a visit came together only after Israel and Hamas agreed to stop fighting. And White House press secretary Jen Psaki is making clear that Blinken has narrow goals for this trip to Israel, the West Bank, Egypt and Jordan, ensuring that we're creating conditions with our partners in the region. For a sustained ceasefire and also discussing the path toward on rebuilding Gaza. Something that there's a great deal of interest in support and the international community on and they're great needs on the ground. This was the fourth military conflict like this between Israel and Hamas since Hamas took control of the Gaza Strip about 15 years ago. This last episode has taken Gaza back several years. That's Elizabeth Campbell, who runs the Washington office for UNWRA, U. N agency that runs clinics and schools for Palestinian Of the 66 Children that were killed. 19 of them went to our schools. This is very traumatic for the families for the teachers for the fellow students on DIT is increasingly difficult to keep rebuilding. During the last outbreak of violence in 2014, then Secretary of State John Kerry rushed to Egypt hoping to do some shuttle diplomacy. He stayed in Cairo all week, with little to show as both sides made demands of him and airstrikes and rocket fire continued. This secretary was far more hesitant, says Harland al Gindi Ah, former adviser to Palestinian negotiators. Risk averse is probably an understatement. Secretary Blinken says Israel has the right to defend itself against rocket fire from Gaza. But he also says he wants to make sure Israelis and Palestinians have equal measures of security, peace and dignity. El Guindi says. All those things are lacking for Palestinians that just seems so detached from where

Columbia Crest H3 Les Chevaux Red 2016 Review

"It's Dave from cheap wine finder.com again with another wine reviews. It's getting fiber that I decided to go red blend, which goes well with thought and I found a wine that delivers a lot for the price low. Do I have here? I got the Columbia Crest Horse Heaven Hills a shadow red blend 2016. The 2017 vintage is off too and they changed the label from 16 to 17 label is very dark for 16 and it's very white and light for 17s, you know the difference off. And so is French for horse Horse Heaven Hills is in the Columbia of valley of Washington office. It's east of Vancouver west of Walla Walla and like the northern banks of the Columbia River and when the first settlers got there, there's Wild Horses song. So you go nice bottles great place. And this is a red blend. That is Merlot sharath Lubbock and it's an assorted other than a regular hours, which I always thought was kind of funny while they don't know what's in there's like they don't know who knows. Another thing is it's been a no this isn't Ryan that's been aged think I found it for under $12 at Costco. It's under 10, I believe and it's been a note for 22 months French and American Oak. For wound 22 bucks. So, you know, it's winemaking is all about the details and near they don't know what the brakes were their birth don't know exactly what the time it was in Barrel. You know, Columbia compressed is a really it's a second label for Chateau Ste. Michelle out of Washington Seattle say Michelle's family wines of the biggest python Washington State in Columbia Crest has been around since the eighties. It's a second label, but there are no slouch in 2009 Dodge Reserve cabin or something on one line of the year and one spectator against every other line in the world. It was number one Columbia Crest mixed good lines and they're always on the top 100 list Best Buy off was so I was you know for me it's kind of funny cuz they didn't know what the grapes were inside other than the first really didn't know exactly. I got a clean it's not as if they're not taking care of business. Just they just don't really care about the writing it up. There wasn't much there. It was just let's play attention to the line and not worry about not what's written and it's a really, you know, it's like I said for under $12 and it's got a lot of flavor that Oak aging is something that you cannot duplicate. Inexpensive red wines have gotten really really good at give you a flavor that tastes pretty good. It tastes legit way. It gives you chocolate and vanilla gives you a lot of flavors in the one that you're looking for and there's different ways they do it. But the one thing they can't do and this has been off barrels for almost two years twenty two months around 22 months. You can't replicate that. There are something that happens to the wine after a couple of years in all the flavors of melding together as deleting the flavors from the earth. You can't replicate that you can put the flavor in but you can't replicate what time does 2-1, you know in the reviewer said if we on a 2017 is out now says the 2016 Under normal circumstances with an expensive red wine. You grab the newest one. I always got new. When you got one that's been aged for a while. But extra year doesn't hurt it off, you know, it helps, you know, they're drinking now wines. They're not really made to be put away, but that doesn't mean they can't be for a short period of time if you could take care of them and liquor store probably took took good care of them. So this is kind of learn those lines that goes, you know, it's a little bit, you know, like made like the more expensive wise just time is money. If it's you know, if it's in Georgia for two years, sometimes it might need almost 2 years of age in the bottle, you know, it's not a exact science, but that takes time and the longer it takes you to snow that one, you know money as long as it's in there and the harder it is to make an expensive one. And this is a value price line. Just the line. You should check out cuz it's not going to be the same old same old. I mean they're they're good red blends that are inexpensive or Perfectly fine, but here you got one that's from a single a VA from a top-notch producer that's got some occasion to it something that you can't replicate off with fancy science that only time can do and I think that's pretty cool. And that's it for me did like I said, we got more coming up keep it cheap and adios by

President Maduro Consolidates Power As The Opposition Grows Weaker

"Backed opposition in Venezuela has spent years trying to dislodge authoritarians President Nicolas Maduro. Nothing has worked instead, as John Otis reports Maduro has consolidated power, while the opposition appears to be growing weaker by the day. It wasn't long ago that Maduro's days appeared to be numbered. His oil rich country was facing its worst economic meltdown in history as well as crippling U. S sanctions. Nearly 60 nations recognised opposition leader Kwon Guido as Venezuela's rightful head of state in January. Why, though, was a guest of honor at President Trump's State of the Union address here this evening? A very brave man who carries with him the hopes, dreams and aspirations of all Venezuelans. Joining us in the gallery is the true and legitimate president of Venezuela. Juan Guido. Mr President, please take this message, but Nicolas Maduro is still ensconced in the presidential palace. The Venezuelan military has ignored y those calls to mutiny. Anti government protests have petered out. Meanwhile, the opposition is split between moderates who favor negotiations and hardliners who want military action to oust Maduro. The hardline strategy backfired in May, when a tiny force of exiled Venezuelan soldiers tried to invade their homeland. They were quickly captured or killed. So is very stock for us. Right now. We have a very, very complicated situation. That's unhealthy. Alvarado Ah, lawmaker with an opposition party called First Justice. The government jailed several party members. Then last month in a legal maneuver, it replaced the leaders of first justice and two other opposition parties, with politicians friendly to Maduro. Alvarado claims these new party bosses were paid off to switch sides. First, they persecute the literature off our party. Then they tried to divide us on DH. Then they replace the leadership of our party with new months that received the money off Maduro. The Venezuelan government ignored NPR's requests for comment. Chef Ramsay of the Washington office on Latin America, says Maduro wants to weaken but not eliminate the opposition. It is ultimately useful for the regime to point to the existence of opposition politicians in Venezuela, as it allows them to say that they live in a democracy. Maduro controls nearly every government institution. Except for the National Assembly, which is led by Juan Guido. But now the opposition is talking about boycotting this year's legislative elections because of fears of vote rigging. If the opposition does boycott why, though, will no longer be president of the Legislature. Jeff Ramsey notes that this post is the basis for his claim to be Venezuela's legitimate head of state. The international community is going to be at a crossroads where they'll have to decide whether to continue recognizing one way, although as interim president Venezuela at a recent rally in Caracas. Why, though, tried to buck up his followers, But if there's a political physical office, you know He acknowledged that they're worn down and frustrated. But he insisted the opposition would outlast Maduro. No, only are the wellbore idea. They are not going to defeat us. Why, though, proclaimed, We are still here

What COVID-19 Portends for Defense, Now and in the Future

"Steve. What changes are being proposed to fiscal? Twenty twenty what can we expect in that kind of supplementaries requests? That's being debated right now. The department offense is not particularly exposed or a beneficiary. If you will on of the emergency appropriations that are being made right now on. There may be some effect on. Dod Indeed the Twenty Twenty the total of twenty twenty appropriations all of a sudden on will surely be larger than the Seven hundred and eighteen billion dollars. That has been appropriated here to four but but I don't think it'll be a lot unless The administration comes up with new missions for the Department of Defense and its constituent elements the military departments primarily that that we hadn't you know that we haven't envision yet I think There's a little bit of money in one of the first bills that's already been asked to lead a poison forces or change the allocation or accelerate the allocation of some equipment to National Guard units. The details of those. I'll confess I'm not quite straight up on. But it's not a big impact as compared to the monies that are being allocated to the National Institutes of health. Hhs Department Obam Homeland. Security are the bigger recipients of money in the emergency supplemental. That were passed last weekend over the weekend. Michael did you have anything to add to that About some relief that might become in the way of the aerospace defense industry in some of the legislation. That's being occurred. Not maybe straight Appropriations but policy wise. Yeah absolutely I get to that in a moment but first Steve I gotta ask you. Is this the first known Emergency Appropriations bill that you can remember. That doesn't have the DOD at the center of it. I mean I'm just struck by the fact that we're talking about an emergency bill and Dod Really. The center of attention is just amazing to me. Yeah probably not the first one. I certainly believe there was a for example when when Hurricane Katrina if the Gulf coast that there was an emergency supplemental. Bill passed them. That had probably also had some dod money's in it but most about was federal monies to domestic. Let's call them agency so it's not it's not the first but but it's it's it's not often that we see a big supplemental come down the Pike with with dispatch like this one did that doesn't indeed feature the Department of Defense in this one does not want. It does not feature the Department of Defense. Let's say let's right. That's a good clarification over the other thing. I would say about it the other thing. Sorry now that you've got me rolling Michael Allen that I would say about. It is that Unlike some other supplemental appropriations. They're not really trading off or supplementing truly supplementing base appropriations Parisian's already been made in in the case of the twenty twenty budget on these are true incremental emergency expenses. You know as as we know and as our friend like Todd Harrison. Csis's painstakingly analyzed. There's a lot of stuff that ends up in a dod emergency supplemental. That are are really not true incremental responses to an emergency. This bill that they passed last week is is is true. You know authentic incremental expenses which but for the advent of the Cronin virus would not have made their way into Ud's budget and probably other agencies budgets as well. That's that's a good point. Excellent so Jen going back to your original question to me. So as we sit here and record this podcast were waiting to see what the Senate may came. Come up with in regards to any kind of specific stimulus for the aerospace and defense manufacturing sector as most people have probably heard by now. Boeing is leading the charge for a potential sixty billion. What I will call bailout? Bid that ostensibly Boeing is requesting for itself in its suppliers but as far as I can tell it would be money that would be going through Boeing as a clearinghouse Mainly for its commercial suppliers and we're going to more on that in a moment but there's that has to be determined because We only have the first of two chambers of Congress dealing with Bill Right now at its Senate and so far they can't they can't even get through the Senate in the two procedural vote. That have happened so far. So we'll we'll see what gets included in the end. In the meantime there is a there have been movements on a regulatory agency level of that the dod and that's the Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security. Have an active where they're trying to help. Speed money to the aerospace and defense manufacturing sector through little Kind of unknown outside of the beltway but very important methods One of which is to try to raise What are called progress payment levels That contractors would be paid in the amount that they are build what that refers to is. let's say you make Doesn't F thirty five's and you send the bill over to the government you deliver them. The Government accepts them. You'd send the bill and the government says okay. Normally we would only pay you eighty percent of this bill up front because we WANNA make sure that these after work and we'll give you the other twenty percent leader. Well what's happened is the DOD has said were immediately raising that to ninety percent for the large companies and ninety five percent for smaller companies that get paid directly by DOD and so. That's just more money in the pockets of contractors. That's going to help a cushion. And he kind of liquidity crisis that may experience elsewhere in getting the funds needed to stay operating the other way that The government is trying to help. The manufacturing sector is by getting it declared and it has done so getting it declared any central part of the nation's critical infrastructure. And what that does is it formally provides guidance to state governors that when governor come along and they say hey we need to issue a shelter in place mandate so that people stay on their own and they certainly don't go to factories little on restaurants and things like that If however you work for a critical infrastructure like the electric grid or Potentially food processing or here now. The defense industry government still wants you to go. And so it's it's a it's a bit of policy making but it's important guidance coming on Washington office. That's good so With that said how is this likely to affect What's planned already for fiscal twenty twenty one Given you know this is kind of a crowded year already. There's a major presidential election underway. And we've got to get through on. Congres in Congress Legislation on all of these emergency bills at a at time when at least three members of Congress have corona virus. So how do you see that? Impacting this year schedule. And then beyond that into a feature years right so Just a couple of points of by way like a baseline The defense budget requests that was submitted for twenty twenty one in February for the Department of Defense Oh Five Oh if I may Speak in Arcane Parlin so But Jimmy accounts total seven hundred thirteen and a half billion dollars And then the end the out years associated with that request when he two three four and five Are for pretty slow too. You know depending on what you're talking about nominal dollars or constant dollars. It is either slow to even negative growth. Once you've taken in negative real growth once you've taken into account the effect of inflation such that we in my trade anyway are are are referring to the outlook for defense spending as flat Off Of the twenty twenty and frankly off of twenty twenty it even might be a little bit down Depending on how these supplementals turn out So even before corona virus captured the attention of The policy We were we. Were looking at an outlook for defense spending. That was flat. I think now with the advent of of the krona virus in the crisis that has created a in in all aspects health economic Difficult Policy That outlook is nominally. None Changed Right. The arm defense hasn't changed its budget requests out your program yet but politically and in our minds The minds of planners for these things I certainly think it has changed
