What's more, you may well I'll be the most qualified nominee we've ever been asked to consider to lead the Department of Homeland Security has previously served admirably. It's this deputy secretary for nearly four years, and before that, as they had a DHS is largest agency, The U. S Citizenship and Immigration Service is director this agency He works to combat immigration fraud. He directed and implemented the doctor program to protect hundreds of thousands of dreamers and much more. His deputy secretary. He led the department Successful Unity of Effort Initiative to improve morale in an agency, which previously had the lowest morale of any large agency in the federal government. Back to department there reported the greatest improvement in morale in the final year of the Obama administration was the department Homeland Security in large part due to all these leadership in that of former Secretary Jay Johnson. From the Senate floor. Tom Carper, Democrat of Delaware. The nomination did face Republican criticism. In his opening speech this morning leader Mitch McConnell, calling the president's choice, quote an ethically compromised partisan lawyer during the Obama administration. Alejandro my orcas did head up the U. S citizenship and Immigration Services. Senator McConnell brought up an inspector general report that found my orchids intervene to help foreign investors in the E B five visa program who were connected to top Democrats.

Nations that New Yorkers was granting special access and special favors to wealthy db five investor visa applicants linked to influential Democrats. When the idea took a closer look at the visa applications for three powerful Chinese nationals in particular, they came to the conclusion that if may, orcas hadn't intervened, and I'm quoting the matter would Have been decided, different like and quit now, Mr President. This is something that we know is inappropriate. We know that this is something for which Mr May or kiss should be held accountable. We know that this is something for which he has not been held accountable, and here is what he did. He put his thumb on the scale, pressured his A. D. H as colleagues pressured his DHS colleagues to break their own rules and turned the law on its head. All because a few powerful friends asked him to do it. He pressured others for the benefit of some powerful friends, and it is all All there for everyone to read in the inspector general's report, And yet he was never held accountable. And yet here we are being asked to support his nomination to the president's Cabinet. That debate over the president's nominee to head up the Department of Homeland Security Senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, despite some Republican opposition six GS. Piece. Senators did support the Democrats in the my organs nomination. They are capital of West Virginia Collins of Maine, Murkowski of Alaska, Portman of Ohio, Romney of Utah, and Sullivan of Alaska.

The nomination people to judge by a vote of 86 to 13, the former South Bend, Indiana mayor and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate confirmed as the Transportation Secretary Washington Senator Maria Cantwell, the incoming chair of the Senate Transportation Committee. With these remarks, Mr President come before today to support the nomination of Pete Buddha Judge to be secretary of transportation. We all know the nominee is Mayor Pete, A man who basically came onto the national stage as a Midwest mayor who had lots of enthusiasm for making investments in America's future. So today we're considering His nomination to be secretary of transportation at a time when we need a lot of work done on transportation, and in my opinion, he's a young, energetic mayor who is going to help us usher in a new era of transportation. That means there's gonna be a lot of bipartisan dialogue about how we get there. But this job should not be underestimated in the importance that the transportation sector and the investments for the future need that is that our transportation system serves. Is the backbone of our economy, and when it's not doing well, the consequential impacts of that affect our economy. It affects how are businesses compete in a global economy. It affects how people get to and from work, and it affects their home life as well. So it's a big job that we have. And I know that this mayor and future secretary of Transportation understands how big this challenge is that from Senator Maria Cantwell as lawmakers confirming people Judge Serving is the next transportation secretary, and he is making history as the first openly gay member of a presidential cabinet. Meanwhile, the Senate Agriculture Committee taking up the nomination of Tom Vilsack, he is the former Iowa governor.

"On 7 10 W. O R. Given by our pal Steve Roberts, the ABC News political analyst. I don't I don't know whether you know this is like the story that won't go away. I guess we just have to wait for Inauguration Day and then it's over. Is that how it works? No, he wouldn't come close to being over. Yeah, one part of one states of it will be over for me. But the president is consumed with grievance here and he cannot abide the notion that he lost. You just can't We've talked about Trump for years on this show, and he's not He's 74 years old. He's not going to change and everything follows through him. This is a man totally incapable, seeing the world and through Tow any other lens but his own grievance and his own consequence in his own ego. And so even though his own attorney general has said the election is fair, even though the director of cyber security and his own department Homeland Security Civics Fair Even though Republican governors in places like George is that it's fair, even though judges he him pointed to the federal bench have rejected his suits. He continues to say There's only one word for it and thats lie. He continues to lie to the American people, because ah Lai is a big word. It's an incendiary words. But lie means that you, you say an untruth knowing it's untrue. And he knows its own true and he keeps saying it and it's not going to go away on January 20th because he has a powerful hold over the Republican Party and the loyalties of his supporters. He's raised millions and millions of dollars. Feeding people. These lies about the election, and he's going to continue to be a major factor in Republican politics long after Joe Biden is president. That's very true, Steve, I think, and he may hold a Maga rally. Well, Biden is having his indoor driving inaugural, but my question for you is and Biden will be the president. We know this Um Does blended. You hear that? Mark that down? He said Hillary still retracted at nine o'clock. Well, so but Steve, Steve, Steve, I gotta ask you, though. Can you understand those of us who supported Trump? And we were just tired of that Washington establishment that you know so well. That did get us involved in all these global alliances that killed working class people in this country that got us into these wars. Trump up ended that with Biden or we could just going to go back to the establishment running things and telling us how we should live our lives. Can Biden just bring it right back to the Obama years? Look, I can understand the appeal of Donald Trump, and he He had insights into the mood of the American people that a lot of Washington pundits, including me, Missed and didn't understand and give him credit for being a shrewd of Andre, powerful politician who got himself elected president. In the face of all of the naysayers who said it could never happen, including people at some point, Don't said that, Ah lot of what he said to people is not true. He said. He was takes us one example. Michael, that all of these blue collar jobs. All of these industrial jobs were stolen because of trade deals and he was going to bring them back. That was never going to be to those jobs were lost because of changes in technology and international supply chains and he was never going to bring him back and he hasn't brought them back on, dear not coming back on. Everybody who has ever studied the issue knows it, so a lot of his grievances were not necessarily based on on accurate descriptions of the situation. But Biden when you say it's what is Biden gonna restore, But I think by on store is a sense of civility, a sense of decency, a sense of mutual trust. What in Washington, and, uh today under Trump. The hostility between the two parties is so profound. They don't even talk to each other, and this is a very divided country facing an enormous number of problems. And whether it's a dealing, creating a stimulus package toe help folks get through the enormous financial burdens of the of the pandemic, whether it's lowering drug prices and other issues facing the country. It's only one way to happen on one way, and that's true bipartisan cooperation, and I do think I think it's a small chance. But I think Joe Biden expect 36 years in the Senate. I think that's an advantage. I don't think that's a discipline. I think, having been part of the Senate for so long, having had relationships with Republicans across the aisle, Understanding that compromise is a noble idea, not a Uh, not a curse word. And by the way, he's going to get a lot of pressure from the left wing of this party not to compromise, either. Yes, that's a very Yeah, Absolutely. But I think there's a term of a possibility here that he could start building a sense of trust with that least some Republicans across the aisle and that I think it's a good thing. And if he restores that The American public in the American people who could benefit from it. Dave Roberts ever. The optimist are Buddy ABC News Point, Judge. Take care of yourself Stable talking.

"Then, I actually think on the whole that level of commitment to the issue of immigration. It really didn't didn't abate at any point in the last four years. I mean, if one thing, Khun B said Of the Trump administration is that this administration on the issue of immigration came in with a laser like focus and didn't really deviate at all. I mean the president. Sure he's been ranting and raving. But there were people in key positions at the Justice Department in the White House, the department Homeland security who were really advancing the agenda, sometimes without the broader public, even fully understanding the extent of it, John, can you just walk me through the highlights of what Trump has achieved? When it comes to immigration. It's been huge, and it's been a resounding success for the nativists. The White House has passed over the last four years over 400 executive actions on immigration. On pretty much every level of immigration policy. So you know the kind of big ticket stuff the administration has decimated the refugee resettlement program. I mean, decimated it brought it from, you know, a country that used to settle, you know about 80,000 people a year in the U. S to less than 7000. So far in the current fiscal year, they've completely Undone the asylum system at the border through a combination of measures, but most notably in the form of shunting 60,000 people into Mexico, where they're just stuck waiting. For asylum hearings that now because the pandemic will never happen. They have cut deals with governments in the region to try to actually outsource the responsibility of providing asylum to Central American governments rather than the US itself. They've chipped away at legal immigration in the form of green cards and visas. I mean, the list goes on and on, and it's going to be extremely hard to undo and to reconfigure. Why's that? Let's say, Let's say Joe Biden winds. Why is it hard to reconfigure and reverse that? For one thing, Just the sheer volume of things the Trump administration has done has made it difficult. They're just gonna be a lot of stuff for a new administration to undertake, but most specifically The Trump Administration got smarter over the last four years. You know, it began with all of the pageantry and high drama of executive orders. Those are relatively easy to undo. But over time the White House got more sophisticated and how it unveiled certain policies. So, for example, they started to move to rule changes. Regulations kind of layered rule changes across different government departments kind of CLA. Huge policy for this White House has been a thing called the public Charge Rule, which pretty much isn't just an assault on legal legal immigration in the U. S. It is actually a wholesale re imagining. Who is allowed to become a legal immigrant in the US, The public charge rule would use immigrants financial status to determine whether or not they qualify for green cars and eventually citizenship in 2017. How would Trump of wanted to do this? He would have wanted to pass an executive order signed it with a Sharpie kind of made a big show of it. But in fact, by the time this thing came out in 2019, in the form of Ah, regulation basically proposed by the department, Homeland Security, there were also three or four other Forms of this policy being pushed around different levels at the State Department, the Social Security Administration, housing and Urban Development, various presidential proclamation that also layered in different aspects of this policy. But why can't they be reversed? I think all of them, you know, rules and regulations are harder to undo, especially if they've been set in motion in the right way. Some of these things require notice and comment period. You know, things have to be taken under advisement. And what's also happened simultaneous to all of this is, of course, the president has named a vast number of judges to the appellate bench. So in the past in the early years of the Trump administration, you have federal judges at least putting the brakes on some of these policies. Now you don't even have that. And they've actually decimated the department's themselves that are supposed to be carrying out this work. One of the talking points I see all the time on social media in particular. Is that deportations were remained much higher during the Obama administration during the Trump administration is that simply because they're just far fewer people getting into the country in the first place? Yeah, to combat. It's a combination of things, and it's a complex and interesting question. I mean, for one thing because the Obama administration had priorities for who it went after who was going to arrest Why I was going to rest those people people with criminal records. People had recently arrived in the country as opposed to people who spent many years here on that families. There was more efficiency and built into the system. This has been by comparison, a kind of chaos. One of the first things the Trump Administration did. In 2017 wasn't eliminated priorities for who I was supposed to go after. And so if no one's a priority than everyone's a priority, which leads to a kind of chaos, and so what you saw in the early years of the Trump administration was arrests, Sword. Mom and specifically arrests of people who did not have criminal backgrounds. The number of people in ice detention shot up but the deportations themselves didn't you also had A major border boy major border crisis, and that meant that ice officers who ordinarily would be policing the interior suddenly had to go to the border on were tasked with dealing with families arriving in sickness island so that set them back a bit. You've also had more of an organized resistance to the Trump administration. Can you ever really did under Obama? So, for example, sanctuary jurisdictions, cities, municipalities, localities, states have banded together and refused to cooperate with federal immigration authorities. You didn't have that level of coordination during the Obama years. And actually, that accounts for a significant number of deportations. Because in effect, you know if, if a if a city or state is cooperating with federal immigration authorities, it makes it much easier for ice to arrest people. They just go tojail. These people are already in detention, and they just take them in to cut into ice custody. So there are all of these different things that have led to the deportation numbers being lower under Trump. So, John, how significant of a loss For Trump was the fight on DACA. Of course, it's hugely embarrassing to the administration, especially because they came into office. These guys, this is Jeff Sessions, who then was the attorney general, and Stephen Miller, the top White House counselor. All with the fantasy of ending Dhaka. And so here you have them. Basically, you know, starting in on one of the signature policies they wanted to undo and you know, they basically whiff after three years of it. I do think that the fate of dreamers remains very much in the balance. And so the reason why I hesitate to say it's a total loss for Trump is if if the intention was to inflict pain, and I think people in his administration who wanted to end AKA wanted to end doctor to send a message and to put this population back in legal limbo. And in that sense, they succeeded because this population is now very much waiting on pins and needles to see to see what happens with the new administration whether Congress can actually codify protections in law for them. You know. Importantly, after that Supreme Court ruling, DHHS came around and said, Look, we will continue to process the applications that had already been filed, but we will not accept new applications. The language of the Supreme Court ruling makes pretty clear that the government has to accept new applications. So even after that Supreme Court ruling, it was quite shocking. And I think pretty typical of where the department Homeland Security is now that the response from the administration.

"J. are always nice spending time with our friend congresswoman Debbie Dingell lots to talk about with the Congress woman she joins us now hello Steve how are you I'm wonderful thank you how're you congressman Hey what's going on out here the roads are icy K. it's thirty five right now little bit slushy out there but everything's fine what about this coronavirus you know we are being told state side still not a whole lot to worry about however it continues to be a major story worldwide I think that what I would say is we need to continue to be alert and aware it does have the possibility of becoming a pandemic aren't we meet regularly with the head of the FDA the head of the CDC Tony fatty who's head of infectious disease at the national institutes of health state department homeland security and quite frankly even now they need a White House chief of staff and the secretary of HHS and the number two at St for wearing a one the last briefing to have that sweet before we came home for this week it is very clear that the United States taking this seriously the China I have to check today our delegation was when I last report speaking with you are you know one of the provinces that the World Health Organization has yet to have access to turn we heard that two weeks ago they would lead a delegation in it as of Sunday the delegation had not been allowed in they were hoping to get there last night and there were still questions about whether the United States is going to be able to be part of that delegation they believed yesterday morning that they were going to allow it to be but I have to find out today if that indeed did happen I think when that the World Health Organization delegation gets to Turner is able to meet with their doctors is able to see things earned him more we will have a better sense about some of the questions about this virus one of the things that we don't know is we now of people who are since the manic in right now it appears that the death rate is about two percent but we know that a lot of children are not getting it does that mean they don't have it we don't know they could be getting it and they're totally asymptomatic and the virus isn't impacting them we don't know the number of people that have gotten a virus scanner a symptomatic so we don't have a good understanding of what the bass is but I think that the World Health Organization is working with our health institutes of every country trying to quarantine it where it is in trying to keep it from spreading well small numbers here congressman the corona virus has infected more than seventy three thousand people around the world mostly of course in mainland China death toll is one thousand eight hundred seventy three including five people outside mainland China several countries are sending flights for their citizens on board the diamond princess cruise ship quarantine in Japan the US has evacuated more than three hundred Americans from the ship fourteen of which have tested positive for the virus the bottom line Congress woman is this when the corona virus first became a story if you will there was not a whole lot of panic whatsoever however I think the numbers that were just discussing here have surpassed those awhile ago that were originally thought to come into play and that's the scary part no one is it last week and preteens everybody said it's very important that if it does come to the United States right now the people that have it for the money well everybody that's been identified as having it is in quarantine some place the largest they've identified five military installations around the country where you for instance the two planes that came from the passenger ship one's going to California whence gone to Texas that people not panic and I said Tony I think you're beyond that he said that people I forget exactly how he said that in the one thing that way but I said Tony is already beyond panic you the fear that's being spread by what everybody is saying is really serious you all need to go out and really talk to people about this virus but they don't what sort of scary how much they still don't know quite frankly the director of the hospital it was treating most of the patients in Europe we're here Sir can I believe our neurologist he was also the director died last night which people may not may or may not have seen five health care providers have died we really need to make sure everyone is thinking I'm very worried about his spiky which actually is in three parts one do we have what we need to take care of people here in the United States if it does if you do have a pandemic two one of the provinces in this is something we're going to have to fix long term ninety percent of our generic drugs are now meeting charming we have to bring that manufacturing back to this country so we are not dependent on a country like that that supply is gonna get interrupted report so are we going to have a shortage of medicine and we also know that we've got a shortage of medical supplies mascots and sterile sterile down to touch her one is saying that the doctors did say is that if you are a symptomatic and you're not on the plane were you worried about getting something you don't need to wear a mask it doesn't help and that you should keep the masses for if we know that the pandemic is here so we don't have the shortage of that could come down there but we're also seeing the economic impact in our in auto industry is very dependent on apart from that region and you've already seen Chrysler you have to interrupt its protection in your senior connect the Namik impact of all of this this is a scary thing though I want to say this to Steve the doctors still make this point and it's true the flu this year is still killing far more people and fifty percent of the people that should have gotten a flu shot haven't gotten all right well we have the on Congress woman on the political front Michael Bloomberg met the Democratic National Committee mandated polling threshold yesterday he will be participating in the debate tomorrow night in Las Vegas your expectations congresswoman you know I'm somebody I am not endorsing a candidate in the primary I remember how ugly it was four years ago people name never came together after the primary and I have the sole goal which is to bring everybody together once we have a Canada because for me it's very important it happened in November I think that Mike Bloomberg has certainly been under attack intense deep attack the last week I think it's important to see him on the debate stage he's going to have to answer a number of the questions that have been raised about him and I just hope if you're bad I mean I know the Republicans are loving what they're watching and I just hope that all Democrats remember that people have to come together it's been pretty ugly out there among not everybody lately which bothers me again get your thoughts on how speaking Sir house speaker Nancy Pelosi issuing the warning to the Democratic Party that listen if we are going to defeat president trump in twenty twenty we have to become

"The cbp custom's and border protection sent out a statement yesterday to the AP about this. They said the extra security was following that breach of the border wall that happened in San Diego back in November. Remember that when when tear gas was used in all that between caravan members and border agents, caravan members say, hey, we're just trying to we're just trying to get in. So we can get some asylum and some members of the border patrol and say, no, we're actually at attacked by some of these people and ended up closing the busiest border crossing for five hours on thanksgiving weekend, the the border customs border protection said that such quote criminal events involving assaults in law enforcement and Aristo public safety are routinely monitored investigated by authorities. So really what they they say. They want to do is they want to talk to journalists who actually witnessed what was going. Some I don't know if there's anything more insidious than that going on. But you know, there are people that have accused President Trump of manufacturing the crisis at the border. So he can get money for the wall yesterday on Capitol Hill yet homeland security chief Houston Nielsen saying the threats real capacity is already severely restrained. But these increases will overwhelm the system entirely. This is not a manufactured crisis. This is truly an emergency. And she says the protect projections. The stats are dire agency is now on track to apprehend more migrants crossing illegally in the first six months of this fiscal year. Then the entirety of FYI seventeen. All right. So I don't know if congress needs to investigate border patrol CB, the D H S department homeland security to see if their if their projections are scientifically accurate or or what? But they do say there lies damn lies. And then there's statistics, right? But I don't know. This is what? The reports are that are coming in from the border sixty six thousand migrants crossed into the US just last month, including eleven thousand in Arizona. So while the president continues to make his case for his border wall. Well, one guy says, hey, let me Bill that sucker we do steel. We do the page road. We make our own concrete. So there's a lot of synergies that make our company a little more competitive. That's Tommy Fisher with Fisher industries, which is based in Tempe. When I first heard about this. I'm like somebody said, yeah, this this Fisher. And I thought to myself Fisher Price wants to build the border. That's good. It's gonna be plastic and there'll be a little built in kitchen fake. President saying eight billion dollars and he says he can save. He can he could spend a lot more money. If if he gets a chance his company gets a chance to build the wall, and it comes with a warranty by using all weathering steel instead of just regular carbon steel take the life of the barrier to seventy five years. What is this guy thinking, by the way, the government's going to save money doesn't this guy know that the government's job is to waste money? And he says he can build it for a lot less and it comes with a warranty. There's no way the government's ever going to go for that. The Trump administration course calculated eight billion and did not ask for this Fisher companies bid. But if someone needs an idea, and we have it you would almost be unpatriotic not to at least speak up and show. You can do. I think it is patriotic, you know, it's such an American tradition to just waste money. I think it's almost patriotic at this point, right? Yeah. They make their own steel and make their own concrete, and he says he can build anywhere that he's told to build. So we almost to guarantee the government will not get in contact with them.
