People coming to New York, New Jersey and Connecticut from Corona virus hot spots are now subject to a mandatory 14 day quarantine. Vice president.

since the shut down and so I don't know what Deborah mark to said that he's not in there no I'm looking straight ahead and there's no John wait a minute let me see let me check the wire services okay the news lines to get articles hospital I think in any alert is he not in today I don't know I was gonna ask way or is he just gonna be late he didn't call me or text me this is weird I don't think that's ever happened oh no I hope he's OK although ray probably know something but didn't tell me okay right six what's going to happen live on the show I am texting ray to ask the question where is John Cole belt all right I can ask them through the intercom to yeah I mean be interesting to see if he's competent today I don't really does he have called it do we know anything I don't know who you know he always has a cough and a sneeze and you know he always seems like he has something he is why didn't anybody tell me this he's doing his wife show I guess he is here somewhere I was just told just not yet does he know it's two oh five oh no or if he does he sent the message I'll be a few but it's it's all right I don't care anyway obviously the corona virus is the big story what we're gonna be spending a lot of time on today is something he came up later in the show yesterday and it is called the update on California's pandemic road map from the state of California we mentioned this big time like the show some people it wasn't really don't know but in order to move further on from the soft opening I love that term the soft opening certain criteria are going to have to be met for counties to allow things like restaurants and perhaps salons to re open and two of the big ones involved the case load along with the deaths and here they are no more than one case per ten thousand people in the last fourteen days and no cold did nineteen death oh wow nice going California they actually wrote no covert nineteen death in the past fourteen days should be plural I yes it's very poor proofreading I guess it's you know when you're in a pandemic you're in a hurry see a buy one billion masks and you don't learn how to type properly and spell check and then there's testing capacity requirements the el Segundo times put out a story this morning that most of California's counties are not even close to meeting this criteria so I got this email from an annoyed woman last night that you said my friend said you said the state will never open that that isn't true you guys are passing misinformation I said we didn't say never but with this criteria it could be months we could be looking I don't know into the fall into the end of the year no don't say that yes I know that how is that what a noble go ahead miss tabulation what's your death total for LA county Tuesday what did you have this one because you guys don't have every newscast with the ladies no no no I actually did not start off the newscast today with the latest numbers I mix it up a bit but fourteen fifty one sorry excuse me for one moment to do that I'm not blaming you well yeah at the beginning and then now we're we're we're shaking things up because I think people aren't as interested in a death toll as they are about things re opening right so what was that number fifty one more people in LA county have died so the the death tolls one thousand four hundred sixty eight so we gonna go from fifty one to one yes and who knows tomorrow might be higher or lower it always seems to be the twenty thirty forty or fifty people from what I remember the last few weeks something like that wow I mean the only crack here for those of you living in LA county is that they might allow you to run and walk on the beach it's beginning next week what will we get into detail with this we can have gas on this too including a state assemblyman from San Luis Obispo who kind of rang the bell on this last night by saying this is not gonna happen even for that county because ninety five percent of California's live in counties that don't meet the standard ninety five percent not a single county in southern California the San Francisco Bay Area meets the criteria right now and with the number I just read you prop probably not likely for a while let's go to Corbin Carson who is covering something else I was listening to Gavin Newsom's daily update yesterday and I forgot to mention this on the show but he got a question from a reporter about churches in salons and he said by the way the first case of community spread in California started in a nail salon and I was out walking and I stopped and I said he acted like it was old news I didn't really so you know I I decided to just let it go because I thought maybe it was old news and then last night or this morning it's like a headline on all the local web pages all the new sites the first case security spread started in a nail salon and apparently in Orange County today there was a news conference nail salon owners apparently offended Corbin is that right or yeah that's exactly what that's exactly right there's a lot of calls for people that sell it that said they felt that the governor had thrown their industry under the bus they want to hear some evidence or some proof that this the first case of community spent the spread of covert nineteen actually did take place in California inside a nail salon as you mentioned that the governor made that statement last night and then today also the governor also back to that statement he said he did not mean that as an affront to the the industry itself but it's a fact his words he says is the fact that the first case of community spread in California did happen in a nail salon he was he says he can't go into details on the proof of that he says because of of you know medical protection right I've seen stuff like that because I heard it's the first case of can be spread was supposedly a Solano county did you get that information to I think what no no I didn't I I I yeah it's a lot of counties where they first but that's all they're going to give us in Solano county officials will not give any more information out either or confirm that it was a nail salon yeah it well I can tell you that kind of the impact of that statement is far reaching at least this is what the the nail association out here in Orange County was telling me they held a press conference this afternoon and and talked about some of the safety measures that they're working on that that they had they realize that the the governor has has put their industry in phase three that you know the governor today says that's not a year away that's not six months away he says it might not even be three months or even a month away but it is still in phase three a lot of salon and nail owners have asked for that to be in face to saying their industry is really safe they go through a lot of procedures to make sure that things are safe within their in their nail salon and I you know I actually one of the board members I talked to today tam when has that has another side of this there's there's six thousand he was telling me there are six thousand nail salons out here in southern California there are thirty cents a thousand nail technicians and his estimates are that maybe twenty to thirty percent of those shops won't even reopen when this shutdown is available because they've been hit so hard take a listen to some of the the the different things we talked about this effect could be on the industry no I'm the only thing is we we are Americans we're told the militants we want to follow the governor's orders but we also want to provide a cultural lands as well as a lens from an expert nails industry it's a very niche industry an industry that has built the Vietnamese American community in America over eighty percent of nail salons.

Novelist Viet Thanh Nguyen on Cultural Authenticity

"You grew up in San Jose California. Your parents open a grocery store tells about that experience. What was that like in? What was their journey like what what brought them here. Why did they come to California? My family fled the Vietnam War. But I'm thirty thousand other Vietnamese refugees because we were on the losing side and my parents in particular. Were were hardcore Catholics and Hardcourt Catholics Communists. And so they fled from the communist twice in nineteen fifty four when the country was divided and they were in the north to the south and then they fled again in nineteen seventy five so the refugees twice and then they came resettled in Harrisburg Pennsylvania For few years And there you have to realize my parents have been very successful. In Vietnam. They'd been born. Peasants work their way up and became wealthy and then lost a lot of that coming to the United States arrived here as refugees and their American sponsors expected them to be poor refugees. Who would be satisfied with class or even menial jobs and that's what they did in Harrisburg for a few years. But they'd obviously we're not satisfied with that and a good friend in San Jose who said this is a promised. Land and weather's good. There are a lot of Asians out here and I just opened up a grocery store so they came out and worked with her at probably the first Vietnamese grocery store in San Jose in nineteen seventy eight and then opened the second Vietnamese grocery store right down the street for some reason. I don't have their friends all about that. But you know we live the Classic Refugee or immigrant American Success Story. Which meant you know? My parents climb the ladder yet again. Rebuilt their wealth and that exacted huge physical and emotional toll on them and emotional toll on me. I'm thankful they didn't make me work in the store because they didn't want me to do that. They wanted my brother to get an education but what I saw growing up. Was My parents working twelve to fourteen hour days almost every day of the year and working in a very dangerous environment you know there was shot in their store. We were robbed at gunpoint at home. My parents were always very paranoid about these kinds of issues. And I'm saying we had this class classic immigrant refugee story because they spent all their time working in order to support my brother and me and and and give a good life but of course what that meant. Is there no time to spend with us? So that's just the classic immigrant or refugee double bind and that's part of what it meant to be having this lonely traumatized childhood for me. Which in the positive sense gave me the requisite emotional damage necessarily become a writer thankful for that inherited trauma you mentioned earlier. And it's something that's really hard to explain to the everyday reader because it sounds a little bit academic you know but like when it comes down to is basically like what your parents went through and how it affected you. I don't know if you could kind of talk about the specifics of that any sort of characteristics that your parents might have passed down well. My parents were devout Catholics and Catholics. Like to suffer so in a sense we were very well equipped to deal with being refugees and immigrants because my parents suffered a lot Both in terms of just having to work really really hard and and also of course they. They survived thirty years of war in Vietnam from Nineteen forty-five to nineteen seventy five which which killed millions of people. So I have no what they had to go through to become the people that the Rx conceptual way. That's the consequences of that. Just in terms of their refugee shopkeeper lifestyle and even though they became very successful financially in the inheritor of that I also grew up feeling that we were poor made a lot of money but they were not spending it on anything and I think that watching them suffer in watching them work as much as they did. Made me not want to do what they did? But ironically I've turned into someone almost exactly like them in the sense that I work constantly now working very nice job being a professor and being writer but I'm always working and I suffer in my own way. Not Getting not in the grinding way that shopkeepers have to go through. But writing has kind of a a suffering for internal suffering journal suffering right but if you ask any writer will most writers. They're tormented by the struggle being a writer and as elite of a lifestyle as at as it is Nevertheless I think I've I've been quipped to deal with that. Based on what? I saw my parents go through and just absorbing the workaholic Catholics lifestyle. I think in my life own family. Like the way that my mom is very sort of pathological about saving money and maximizing it and that's because she grew up very poor now. I find myself thirty two earning enough money to buy a pair of shoes. The costs more than twenty dollars. Now that make you feel free. Can't do you really can't you know and and somebody told me that? I had the shoes of a restaurant worker a couple years ago now. I need to fix this and even my dad. You know when you go back home and they do your laundry for you. Here's looking at my clothes. You know it was like you need new clothes. Why don't you buy some new things you know so these things will leave a mark guy off of that what year work is in the kinds of writing that you do require so much self-knowledge as well you grew up in the bay area which is a diverse place. I also grew up in East Bay. Your south by East Bay But for me being Asian American as a kid in a very diverse place was great in some ways because it's diverse and I didn't stand out in the ways that frank for example in Tennessee has talked about very different but by the same token there are things that you've written about your experience growing up. I really relate to in that I was so intensely aware of the otherness other people perceived when they looked at me and it gave me a chip on my shoulder head a lot of like anger and resentment about the and it was really hard to know what to do with that for a long time so then to become a writer who writes about these things. You know. You're not running like fairy tales or SCI FI movies. You're you're writing is very close to these experiences in. I wonder how did you process what enabled you to get to that point? And and what was your experience like growing up. Well it's kind of interesting they'll give hearing about both of your life experiences because you could see where Franks experience would mean that. He would obviously feel like a complete other yet. We grew up in the multicultural bay area and I grew up in Vietnamese and Mexican neighborhood and so on but I still felt that that sense of otherness. And I think that's because even if we did live in a multicultural environment Dominant American culture is still was and still is dominated by white people inside like to say. I didn't really experienced that many direct episodes of racism experts if you've small ones but nevertheless I felt like we were all irradiated by racism. Just out there on the airwaves you know from. Tv Movies Radio Shock. Jocks this kind of stupid stuff that was going on. And so I felt that on absorbing that another hand also receiving support from the Vietnamese community and from an implicit Asian American community. So I went to this all white high school mostly. What High School Bunch of us? Who were of Asian descent? We knew we were different. We just didn't know how so. We've gathered a corner of the campus every day for lunch and we call ourselves. The Asian invasion reclaimed didn't have the language we knew her Asian. But we most of those guys never became political like I became political. So what happened. I think it was a combination of this Catholicism that I was raised with the suffering and the sense of sacrifice willing sacrifice I'm going to be a martyr and then I went to Berkeley and I was already an atheist. I couldn't be a Catholic martyr. Became an Asian American martyr. You know at Berkeley became immediately radicalized there and that was partly through political activism on the campus but also wanting to be writer in the context of the traditions of Asian American African American literature but also American literature I did a PhD in American literature. And I thought I'd I'm not going to refuse being Vietnamese or Asian American but I'm also at the same time going to claim my Americanised as well. I'm gonNA write stuff that goes in both directions. I did have big chip on my shoulder. Still do around about people just aren't angry enough. I came out of a Berkeley tradition. Where anger was good. Being radical was good. And then you look out at the landscape of Vietnamese and Asian literature. Sometimes you think well it's well written but maybe there's enough anger that's not enough politics in there. There has been in the past so I wanted to be someone who would incorporate both the politics of the Asian American tradition with what I imagined to be the highest levels of aesthetics and literature. That was my

Cristina Tzintzn Ramirez, Candidate for Senate in Texas

"Cincinnati Eras. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thanks for having me glad to be here you are one of my very first guests with the electorate. I think in two thousand seventeen the very first year and I talked to you because you had an organization called Jolt in Texas which was to register voters. Latino voters in Texas. Is that still going on? Jolt Yeah Jolt is up and running across the state and quickly become one of the most important political forces in Texas lifted up the voice vote of thousands of Latinos across the state of. It's amazing so what made you decide to run for the Senate so I wasn't looking to run for the Senate. Texas has changed a lot in the last few years and some of the state's most important progressive leaders and folks that helped run better. O'rourke Senate race. I guess we're in a meeting back in April and recognized that the state is very close to flipping but for us to get over that last hump to flip the state that we have to drive up voter turnout amongst young people in that he knows and I'm one of the folks on the best job of that in our state and so they asked me to run for. Us Senate also because of my policy background working on raising wages Making job see for my first organization. Workers Defense Project also tackling issues like student debt climate change and based on that resume. They thought that I would be a good fit to run for. Us Senate and at first. I told them no and they kept calling me and I thought no because I felt like the really wrong time for me. Personally I have a two year old little boy named Santi at home that I raised primarily by myself and I went on a long walk after the kept calling me because I lived for changing the politics of Texas and they were really convincing me that this was the best way to influence the political outcome on the progressive issues that I care about and so I went on this long walk and I thought yes. It's totally the wrong time for me personally but it was also the wrong time for me personally when I was twenty four years old and I launched my first nonprofit called Workers Defense Project and it was the wrong time for me personally when I was six months pregnant the week after the two thousand sixteen election and I launched jolt so I thought yes. It's the wrong time me personally. But maybe it's the right time in Texas history for Progressive Latina to become our next senator so I threw my hat into the ring and here we are well. That's really great. That's a really great story. I mean I'm just thinking about I mean because I have a baby at home I understand. Thank you and I'm always thinking about that. Like I talked to women like you. And they're all at different stages of their political careers and they all have really good advice. I remember talking to someone last year. Who was running in the November elections and she said something to the effect of you. You're more ready than you think. You are. Always think that we're not ready. So I love hearing stories like yours so congratulations. Thanks Emma's who really know is it. Does it feel heavy to have so many people relying on you saying you're the one you're the one we think you can do this like what does that feel like. You know. I think after being a jolt and working across the state to have young people especially young Latinos see they were this tremendous political force. I realized that so much of the reason why it was hard for people to believe that was because they didn't see anybody in power that reflected their stories their experiences. It looked like them that came from their backgrounds and so every day I wake up I think about what a gift. And what a responsibility this is to be running that. I WANNA be everyone senator in Texas and I also want to uplift the stories and communities often haven't been reflected in what story gets told about Texas so there is always some piece of you that wonders is this actually what I should be doing. And then there's another part of you that realizes that this is the right moment. This is the right time. And if we're not the ones to cease it than who will and so. That really keeps me going and focused on. Why I'm doing this and who I'm doing it for and what it means to many many people across my state so what story is told about Texas that you think is incorrect or needs some correction the narrative about Texas. Well you know. I think when people think of Texas they think of state. That's pretty monolithic. Actually they think of cowboys and Barbecue. And there's great barbecue and Greek cowboys and Texas to be sure but our state is actually incredibly diverse. From I want people to think of Texas I want people to think of the Anthony Bourdain episode where he goes to Houston Texas which is one of the most diverse cities in America and he goes to a Kenyatta and is there with a Latino family. He goes into a Vietnamese community into African refugee communities to meet with African American communities and it just and then goes and eats barbecue. And it's just this beautiful reflection of WHO Texas is. That's the Texas that I see and that is really who we are as a state in that one in three Texans are like me we are immigrants or children of immigrants. I think so much of WHO Texas is today is who the rest of the country will be common. I think it's a beautiful diverse place that I want to uplift and for other people to see while it's really beautiful. I have to go back and watch that episode. It's one of the bats. Yeah I'll have to watch it. You know it's funny because you're talking about better O'Rourke right and what people are thinking about the state of Texas and the possibility of it flipping so I was just looking at those numbers and first of all just want to point out that your primary field is huge right there. Lots of people running in this primary for the seat right. That's one thing. So maybe they the same idea that this is a great time to try to you. Know get involved in flipping Texas but the second thing you know. A lot of the analysis says that there is a better effect here and I think in twenty one thousand nine hundred Ted Cruz one by a little over two slightly a hair over fifty percent and better work product forty-eight percent but that was a five percentage point improvement over Clinton because I think trump won Texas by fifty two percent in Clinton loss with forty three percent. I mean is that what people are looking at? Yes so you know just in the last few years. We've seen a huge uptick in voter participation. What you have to remember about Texas people have said were. This has been a long time red state and while it's true that we've Gone Republican. We've more than anything. Been a nonvoting state. We've had one of the lowest voter turnouts and that's how Republicans have held power in Texas. They have been happy to win without a mandate but with a minority voters participating. And now because that's changing we're starting to see that Texas who are future leaders will be will likely change in likely happen in twenty twenty. We are one of the youngest states in the country where majority people of Color and those young people and people of Color and progressive white folks are voting like never before in Texas and I think with trump on the ballot. You're going to see a massive wave of Latino voter turnout in Texas. Because half of all those turning eighteen in the state are Latino and they are voting decidedly for progressive candidates. So what do you think that is I mean? Why do you think that you have low voter turnout in Texas? Because I know that states had to have low voter turnout. The story is different for each one. There's always some voter suppression. You know especially in the states that have high populations of people of Color right you know. I always dismissed the idea that apathy is a big part of it. Like what do you think it is with Texas? Will you look at the states that have lower voter turnout? A lot of them are going to be states where people are working many hours In Texas we actually work more hours than most people in other states We have people in power that have made it increasingly difficult to register to vote and to vote and that ends up getting reflected in who actually goes to the polls and now though that is changing and it's changing because also Democrats are taking control over the big metro areas in our state which were the majority of the State's population lives and they're making it easier and more accessible to vote so place like in Houston which is Harris County. They're now extending hours to where you can vote and making sure you can anywhere in the county that you don't have to vote your precinct where your local polling station. And that's changing the outcome of

P. flag in his mayoral office and that is the amount that's the Communist Party of the Soviet Union for those of you don't know CCCP that's the so relic acronym so Bernie Sanders had a long history like Jeremy Corbyn in the United Kingdom these were cold warriors on the other side they were representing Soviet interest Bernie Sanders when he was a member of Congress carried on what he called an independent US foreign policy to counter the Reagan approach to the Soviet Union he celebrated like a German Corbin in the UK the socialist revolution that was on going in Venezuela talked about the health care and and the education that was in two models as models the Cuban model so I predicted there would be someone who didn't come with that baggage and would represent a still utopian idea of Marxism for the future that could you know successfully sidestep the failures a hundred years of history more than a hundred million people killed in some forty countries around the world since nineteen seventeen and I think we see that in a not only a see but in a number of local grassroots Marxist organizations around the country our foundation has just launched for the first time ever a local commission in Saint Louis and we are working there with both Democrats and Republicans Saint Louis as you know is a democratic town it's wrong hold if you win the democratic primary you're likely to win the public seat and that's what had been happening they had self avowed Communist Party USA members democratic Socialist Party members who were running and getting installed into post as Democrats and so we're down there to you know talk about the history talk about what's going on today but do you have a local partners I'm curious if this is a local mission yes we do what you know who who in Saint Louis that with people who want to talk about the horrors of communism Americans who understand what was at stake in the Cold War and they know what's going on in China today in Cuba today in Venezuela today and they are appalled that there are local true believing Marxist who are getting elected to local post and in acting policies and in charge of taxpayer money to spend on their aims and you don't some of these people that I met when I went down on a fact finding mission to to see what they were talking about they have workers education society and not it sounds better than camp so they have you know we reject or their approach they have moved people in from around the country to Saint Louis to get organized into affect local policy and I talked to members of the Vietnamese American community there people from the the Balkans who had that landed in Saint Louis and one lady in particular who had howls refugees from Vietnam and she wept and said she couldn't believe she was a Democrat she couldn't believe that this was happening in America and their sentiment like I I think a lot of people is if that takes over here where do we go all of these people escaped these regimes in came in unprecedented numbers to the United States as refugees where would we go and if you don't think it can happen here look at Jeremy Corbyn a few years ago in the United Kingdom everyone thought he was too far Marxist to ever be a serious politician a man who was known to celebrate and to mourn Palestinian terrorists and he is now the head of the labor party one of the two major parties in the United Kingdom and it's not unthinkable at all that the current political dysfunction in the United Kingdom you know gives an opportunity for the labor party to come in you know people have commented that Bernie Sanders possibly it would have won the primary Alaska around were it not for the super delegates so I think that we are beyond the days where we can laugh at this movement in the United States when you have a majority of millennials who say they would likely vote for a socialist which is come out in a recent poll that we have done with you guys can you just take it as a serious I I mention that all the time and I want it to be heard from your lips your annual poll that you do with you got Sirius poll found out is just a tell all this is the last few seconds we have in this segment what a joy you Gulf poll find mine Smith well I'm I'm I'm giving you the hot hot off the press report and that is just come out in our new look a new assignment okay great and that is that seventy percent of millennials are somewhat or very likely to vote for socialists I have to say that the good news there is if there's a silver lining it is that sixty six percent of Americans cannot accurately defined socialism and the overwhelming majority of Americans under estimate the death toll of communist.

The office of the High Commissioner for human rights said its report along with the UN you in support mission in Libya turned up unimaginable harbors among migrants who seek to reach Europe through the largely lawless country. The report was based on thousands of interviews. It covers January twenty seventeen to August. Twenty eighteen the violations mentioned in the report included unlawful killings, torture, arbitrary detention, gang, rape, slavery forced labour and extortion. The report comes as European Union leaders. Pursue Everett's to beef up the blocks in external borders to stop large numbers of migrants from entering Europe. Many migrants who have been caught trying to cross the Mediterranean have been returned to Libya and put in detention centers in another move targeting refugees and asylum seekers. The Trump administration is resuming efforts to deport thousands of Vietnamese refugees who've lived in this country for decades. Nick, Alexandra reports Vietnamese American organizers are holding vigils to raise awareness and say many in their community are anxious. They fear. The Trump administration may ratchet up deportations of up to ten thousand people who have lived in the United States since they were children when they came as refugees from Vietnam. The Trump administration is reinterpreting a repatriation deal between the two countries under the two thousand eight agreement Vietnam agreed to receive nationals who arrived in the United States after. Traumatic ties were reestablished in one thousand nine hundred five according to James thrower spokesperson for the US embassy in Vietnam. The Trump administration's interpretation now includes pre nineteen ninety-five cases as well somewhere between seven and ten thousand people may be at risk of deportation under this new interpretation, if they have criminal records hope when is a member of the rapid response network a community organization founded in response to ice rates to appreciate why deporting these refugees is so wrong. She says it's important to understand the history that brought them to this country in the aftermath of the American war, and how young refugees ended up with criminal records in the first place prisoners of war in Vietnam. People who are fighting against communism who were in prison detained up the reeducation-camp if they were there for more than three years they were allowed to release from prison and allowed to bring their family. To the United States when they arrived in the United States. When says they were usually resettled in rough neighborhoods. These young refugees children were often left to fend for themselves or their parents, many of whom suffered from PTSD worked long hours to rebuild their lives. Children go to school. They get bullied. They need protection. It's very natural for them to find camaraderie and find safety in gang. Unfortunately, dang life. When they're around as young as thirteen years old gang life led to criminal convictions. When says for a variety of different offenses. But after serving their debt to society and rebuilding their lives. They're now being punished a second time with deportation Kundun is the director of the South East Asian resource center, a civil rights organization founded in response to the refugee crisis created by the Vietnam war and its aftermath. She says eighty seven percent of those with deportation orders have criminal convictions from their youth fifteen to twenty years ago. When we look at these stories, and we meet the families, many of these incidences are everything from position of ecstasy tablets to possession of marijuana. Things that in many states aren't even considered a crime anymore and yet because their immigration policies are so punitive. Those conditions are still considered an aggravated felony and trigger deportation. Even if athletes seen in these cases individuals have already served their sentences and have already done their time to transform themselves. And now, our parents are owners are faith readers who are all at risk for potential deportation. Now, you're a few g's are being deported back to the country. They left as young children ten says, they may not speak the language and many don't have any family left in Vietnam. Chris Lupino is a lawyer with Asian Americans advancing Justice, which has filed a class action lawsuit against the government to protect Vietnamese refugees from rest and deportation. He says refugees could face discrimination when they are deported to Vietnam. They might have stronger ties to. The former government of South Vietnam. And so there may be hostility that would greet them in Vietnam today. That's it. I think it's difficult for any person who's deported to be at Phnom to establish a life. They're even obtaining identification documents, or despite a job can be very difficult if not impossible for someone who's deported Vietnam this year eleven Vietnamese citizens have been deported. According to civil rights groups deportations to Vietnam still trail well behind the hundred forty six refugees deported to Cambodia this year by the Trump administration, but the Vietnamese American community fears that may soon change if the administration is able to get its way for KPFA news.

The US has already deported a small number of Vietnamese refugees the administration backed off after a lawsuit earlier this year, however advocates in Orange County's Vietnamese American community said this week that they feared the government would try to renegotiate the two thousand eight agreement and that more refugees who arrived before nineteen ninety-five could be deported.

"One thirty seven here on the great W R K. Oh, okay. So how did the Francois John Benedict, Arnold Kerry? How did he make his name? Served. What a month in Vietnam. Whatever it was came back and then saw the antiwar movement. You want to be a successful democrat. That's where the action is. And then in front of that Senate Foreign Relations committee infamously said that they were Tross cities were being committed by American soldiers on a scale he called the Jinja says really Genghis on a scale that Gingas Kahn had not seen not since Gingas Kahn. Had we not seen these kinds of atrocities, and he defiled and defamed the veterans he sold his fellow brothers who fought with him in Vietnam right down the river. And he's been doing this really now for the last forty some years. That's how we rolls. And yet to me the real issue is this. It's those who fought in Vietnam. They didn't want to go many of them. Many of them were seventeen eighteen nineteen twenty years of age. Their country asked him to go. They were drafted. They went they served and yet the way that they were treated when they came back home is to me a moral stain on this country. And to be honest with you a moral stain on the antiwar movement. Antiwar liberals like John, Francois Kerry. They did not deserve the disrespect and the hatred. The ostracism that they got when they came back. They were spit on. There were called baby killers, many of them were denied jobs. They were called war criminals. They were discriminated against for what a fighting communism. Be serving their country. And so I really want to give a special shout out to the people of sandwich. Down by the Cape. They a group of veterans. In fact, one of them is a marine who did not serve in Vietnam. But he served between nineteen seventy seven I think nineteen eighty-seven don't quote me on this. But he put together a beautiful memorial simply to honor the Vietnam vets. And he wanted it to be placed in the middle of Eaton square in the middle of the town square. And yet the moon bats, the liberals down there resisted saying, well, you may get your memorial. But we don't want it in the center of the town square does other memorials they're older. They're more quaint looking. They're more quote, unquote historical. This is a more to modern of a memorial. They don't like the look of the memorial. You can have your memorial. But let's stick it somewhere else. Basically where nobody can see it. And the Vietnam war vet said enough is enough. And the vets of sandwich said enough is enough and the police and the law enforcement and the patriotic people have sandwich said enough is enough. You may have kicked the Vietnam vets to the side forty years ago, but you're not kicking him to the side anymore. And so even though the sandwich town council wanted to vote against putting the memorial in the middle of the Eaton square. Under pressure from residents, the packed room standing room only under pressure from the veterans under pressure from patriotic citizens under pressure from the wonderful police down there. The three people on the council to voted for it one voted against it. They're finally going to get their memorial that they should have had frankly decades ago. And it's gonna be in the center of Eaton square where it belongs. And apparently now, I'm just reading this press story that would really changed everything at this passionate dramatic emotional meeting yesterday in sandwich, Massachusetts. Was a speech from James Foley who served in Vietnam in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight and here's what he said, quote when I went there. I Vietnam I wasn't old enough to vote. When I came home, I was in uniform in Los Angeles. And I was told go away. I had to change into my street clothes. Because they'd spit on him. If he was wearing his uniform. And then he said, I hope that this town. Sandwich. At this town board doesn't vote to tell me to go away again. And to their credit. Members on that board members on that council. Did the right thing. And I think these poor Vietnam war vets who I love. I love all the vets please don't get me wrong. But I'm gonna speak now from the heart. A somebody who's half of his family was wiped out by communism. That they fought the greatest evil of the twentieth century, communism and Nazism, communism was one of the greatest evils the twentieth century that they stood there to fight against authoritarians communism in Vietnam. If Vietnam was not a just war. The no war has ever been just and the way that they were treated the way that they were slandered the way that they were defamed the way that they were genuinely discriminated against is an absolute shame. It is a shame. And I'll never forget this. I was in Washington DC at the Washington Times. I was the assistant national editors writing a lot of opinion columns as well. And I went to a very remarkable evening. It was at the Slovakian embassy. Czechoslovakia broke up after communism fell into the Czech Republic. And to Slovakia and the Slovaks Czechs suffered under communism under Russian Soviet communism. And there was a memorial dedicated to all the victims of communism all over the world. So there were representatives from the Ukrainian government, the Baltic states. As I mentioned Slovakia, the Czech Republic. Croatia Serbia, I can run Bulgaria Romania, but it wasn't just from eastern Europe or the former Soviet Union. People were there from Vietnam. The Vietnamese community many of whom were both people who fled communism after the communist one when we left Vietnam, many of them had made out in San Francisco, they made they made their way to California. They achieved the American dream. And I met many of them. Do you know who raise the most money for that memorial to the victims of communism? It wasn't the Ukrainians wasn't the Croatians wasn't the Serbs. Wasn't the Slovak's. Wasn't the Hungarians wasn't the polls. They raised a lot of money. Don't get me wrong. It was the Vietnamese community the American whatever the Vietnamese American community who had fled Vietnam after we left, Vietnam and the Viet Cong and the communist took over. And they said we want the world to remember. There were a million people hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese were massacred never mind what happened in Cambodia and Paul pot and Laos and the Hmong who got massacred wiped out. Nobody knows what the Vietnamese suffered under communism when America left. And they just wanted to shake our hands to say thank you for recognising our suffering what we went through. So I really wanna congratulate honestly the people of sandwich now. Then there's Somerville. And I'm telling you right now, I think we may have just found Joff Francois Carey's long lost love child if he had a love child. This guy could be it. So listen to this. So you go from sandwich to the sanctuary city of Somerville. Now, I've always said this when you have a sanctuary city when you proclaim yourself to invite illegals lawbreakers, it infects everything else a lack of respect for the law, a lack of respect for your country, a lack of respect for the for the rules, a lack of respect for the flack, it's like an insiduous cancer. People say oh, come on. Jeff, you're exaggerating. Okay. So we broadcast here in Medford at the iheart building. Where a stone's throw away from Somerville. I go through Somerville every day. Listen now to this story, by the way, I want to praise this guy. I this guy is a hero. Okay. George gani. I don't want to rush. It. George Ghitani sauce something several days ago. At a vet's.
