"Why would we make Children decided to go with that shouldn't be a kid's decision, and it's wrong and unfair to ask them to make it on Ly parents can make that decision. It will harm the kids even more to ask him to do that. Another trauma for them to carry Gladys. Million. All you mentioned that they do sometimes asked the kids in this situation. How often does that happen in at what age You have. It happens fairly. In fact, in our work when we William and best interest. We also asked Children for their wishes. And you know, we look at is the child. There isn't like a magic age. We look at the child's maturity and an expression to weigh that into our best interest recommendations. But the reason why parents have to even Talk to kids about that choices. Going back to the situations that parents maybe end. They may not be safe themselves in their country of origin and Perhaps it's the parent's way off. Making peace with the child being away from them. But safe because the parent doesn't want to make that decision unilaterally by bringing the child back to a situation where the parent knows They're not going to be safe. Mandria rights did no one ever think to use wristband, such as those used in hospitals to identify parents and Children. The wrist bands could have had names and matching ID numbers. It wouldn't have been 100% effective. But it certainly would have given some help in identifying in reuniting families. Kathleen Karen, Can you talk about how the pandemic has affected justice? Emotions? Efforts to find parents? So we headed to suspend the on the ground searches in Central America and March due to the panda Mac. We didn't restart them until late in the summer, when defenders felt although Cove it is still very strong in Central America, that they still wanted to do the work because every day that a child has an uncertain future, they're damaged by that. So there's this this incredible commitment to the work dedication. And urgency to the work to find those parents and to help the parents figure out where their kids are and make the right decisions for their Children. Michelle Wily, Do you want to add to that a little bit about just the effect that the pandemic has had? As I know, you've also done reporting on this as well. Chair. I spoke to one of the justice in motion defenders. Dora Mae Lara, who's in Honduras, and she talked to me about you know some of the public health restrictions that are in place there has really limited and you know, Kathleen could speak more to this has really limited the amount of time that defenders Khun go out, just based on The way that people are restrictive on movement because of the public health order, you know, it's difficult to travel far because they can't really stay overnight in a place that's not their home. On DH. I mean, also just building on that The trust issues that already would have existed are now in the context of a pandemic. So I think that you know the defenders like Kathleen spoke to, You know, they're very seasoned professionals, and they are working diligently to To get people reunified, but it's just a crazy, even more difficult situation. Bill asks, Is the federal government helping to fund the organization's trying to remedy the situation? Gladys Molina. Also I know that the young center for Immigrant Children's Rights works with the Office of Refugee Resettlement, How much of your budget is government support his federal support. It's about a third of 40% of all over your budget, but it's not funding that is given to us for the purpose of I'm doing this harm for the purpose of being appointed to Children, a CZ child advocates and that includes Children that that that have not been separated from family. Yeah, That was my next question whether or not OK of the budget, right? Are they actually putting monies towards specifically your efforts to try to advocate for the Children who are separated and re? Yeah, but to echo Kathleen, I do agree that The consideration of providing families with three sources. And assistance and support because of the trauma that we caused due to this policy. Is key A color had asked earlier. Why was kept a secret and it was kept a secret. I believe, because it is such an awful thing to do. To a child to separate a child from their parents that They knew the public outcry would be good allowed as it wass. And again, Gloria Molina, Gladys Molina. Ault is with the young center and a child advocate and a program director there the young Center for Immigrant Children's Rights Michelle while he's a reporter for Kathleen Karen, founder and executive director. Ofjustice in motion. We're talking about how the parents of 545 Children separated as long as three years ago still have not been found. You're listening to forum. I mean, Achim. Robin writes. There was a report a couple months ago about housing Children of refugees. The reporter noted that there were dirty diapers in the hallways and no one seemed to be in charge. Can you say more about this situation? Gladys Molina, although I know that there have been reports about some continuing very unsanitary situations, potentially in different detention centers, But I think also what Robin's point brings up is what do we know about what's happening at the Southern border now, especially with The way that the Trump Administration has essentially sealed it and isn't taking any more refugees. Well, what we do know about the Southern border is that Asylum seekers aren't being processed there being sent back to Mexico. We do know that thie government is illegally removing or expelling. Unaccompanied Children that should be allowed to enter the care of the officer, refugee resettlement, and we do know that the government continues to find ways to separate families through through means, like MPP. That is, if the government isn't doing it. Actively there doing it by default by putting this policies in place that then forced families to two separate and we do know that they continue. Despite federal district court orders, too. Prevent people from accessing the asylum system, whether the V adult or being unaccompanied minors. That's what we do you know about what's going on in the southern border. With these Children when they're expelled. Gladys million ald. I mean, is the government tracking them at all? Is the U. S tracking them at all? Well, they had their baby. They don't track them the way they don't track him there. We've heard of Of Children being In some sense, kids that are not even Mexican nationals being turned over to Mexico. We've also heard of cases where the government Takes unaccompanied minors and puts them on charter flights and deport them back to Central America. But in terms of tracking them nothing. I don't know for what means that the government where the government is looking at it is we're going to expel them. They're not going to enter there. Not going Teo be put into the care of the officer, refugee resettlement or have access to the immigration chords or the asylum office. So they're tracking their expulsions. But beyond that, I don't know that they're tracking anything else. This is no rights. What are the ages of the kids? I heard summer. Actually, babies. This is so sad. And disturbing me, Michelle. While I'm not sure she's referring to the 545 Children who still for whom their parents have still not been located,.

"On breaking news. It's 9 50 on Wall Street time to check him a Bloomberg opinion and we're joined by opinion columnist Ranjha Papa who's running, but the feds not so secret weapon to replace stimulus. So, Brian, this is a very eyecatching headline and an interesting analysis. I, you know, one of big, actually, the big sticking point now. Or was between the Democrats and Republicans was about $600 billion, right just about how much the aid to cities and states would cost right. So you're talking about the Fed using its municipal lending facility to in effect, step in and help the states and localities out. By bolstering their supporting their their bond sales explained the whole premise because it is quite is creative and very interesting. Yeah, exactly. So, I mean, ideally for states and cities because they're facing big tax revenue shortfalls, given the fact that the Corona virus pandemic has On the one hand caused the large search out appointments and additionally, there also, you know, having to cut workers trying to make it because because, after balance their budgets, so the ideal scenario Obviously to make up for that shortfall is that the federal government just grant money. But if that's not gonna happen, then the Fed has lending powers but not spending powers. As J. Paolo likes to say. So the Fed could make more affordable loans to states and cities because right now there's only been two issuers that have used a $500 billion facility Illinois and New York's which run the subways. So very few have taken advantage of the facility because the loans are just too expensive. The interest rates are just too high. And so they just cut the prices cut the interest rates. I mean, I'd be really helpful and more borrowers might be able to bridge their shortfalls that way, rather than take more permanent actions, like short changed their pension funds or lay off workers or cut back on public services. Well, the pension fund thing I don't think they have a lot of wiggle room on. I think that's it being a defined benefit program. That they've got to maintain a certain level of assets within that portfolio to be able to meet the benefit obligations. And I think this may have been one of the things that the Fed learned after the financial crisis because if you remember and maybe my memory needs a little bit of WD 40 here But I'm wondering whether or not the situation was that What the Congress approved and what was labeled shovel ready projects and distributed two states. One of the reasons that money didn't trickle down to a lot of the shovel ready projects was because the state's given the fact that asset prices had moved lower. They had to use that money to fortify those public pension funds, right? Right? I mean, that's partially true. On the other hand, there were many states that still simply had a short changed their pension funds in order to balance their budget. So I mean, you look, you don't know I wanted this one of the states that had to borrow through the effects facility because it was actually cheaper to do so that try to tap the public markets. I mean, they have the worst funded state pension plans in the country. Kentucky's are also pretty weak Connecticut New Jersey's I mean, a lot of states are struggling to make these promises that they that they that they pledged. And as a result, they have to face a lot of tough decisions, and we saw this strike the last downturn, they had to cut the number of employees on their payrolls and cut back on public services. And it really hampers the economic recovery. You hear about the slowest, most gradual economic recovery out of the out of a recession, and that's part of it. That's what Jay Paul's trying to avoid this time. But it's tough without fiscal stimulus, so he may have to get creative well, in the whole question of reforming the pension systems in these states could you know we've all seen the stories about you know someone who worked for the Long Island Railroad and he's got a $150,000 your pension or, you know and higher, right? And that's what happened in one of the states. But that's not really we're talking about. We're really talking about how the Fed, you know, forget about that part. Let's just say State state help regardless now, one thing when Powell was speaking at the virtual National Association for Business Economics event a couple of days ago, a speech that made a lot of ways because that's when he was almost begging for stimulus to come through. He was asked about this facility. And you said only two only two entities have used it. But he said, Well, what happened as with corporate bonds once we got in the market and said, We're backing it up yields came down. We didn't actually have to do all I think that that's been a very important part of this because what's everybody waiting for, or is he right? There's been enough change that they don't need to use the facility. Yeah. I mean, I hear that point, but I think ultimately when there's a difference between seeing yields in the market and actually getting those fields and feeling comfortable coming to the market, knowing that you'll get that yield, right? So the good thing about the Federal Reserve is its price, insensitive buyer, it says. This is the price at which we will buy your bonds. And that's really comforting. I think for a lot of states and cities that That might want to borrow to try to bridge the shortfall. And but our maybe nervous that if they if they come to the come to the public markets that they might not actually get those interest rates, I think you think about New Jersey. They're floating $4 billion or more in bond sales. I mean, it's really anyone's guess what the actual market appetite for four billion plus of New Jersey general obligation bonds is Whereas if you know you have the Fed facility there at an attractive interest rate. You know, they'll buy your bonds at that price. And I think that that's a big that's a big difference. And I understand the point that J. Paul makes and the others make that. Markets are settled down, so just let him be. But if they're not going to get stimulus funds from the physical side, then maybe the Fed has too strong on the market a little harder. Interesting because tonight, Kathleen spoke with Rob Kaplan, head of the Dallas Fed bank, and he's a little skeptical on this idea of increasing the level of of bond buying. Do you think that we could slowly begin to see development at the Fed of a consensus that Resists doing Mork Yui. That would be interesting because I think one of the things that the Federal Reserve hasn't really has kind of shied away from this idea of what kind of financing the government programs because that kind of makes people nervous, they think monetizing the debt, but I mean, ultimately, that's exactly what the Fed's doing for months now, So I asked him about that I was once a really quickly Brian because I said, is this money, modern monetary theory that you could have been pushed into And he said, Well, you know, the difference is it's a crisis and we have to do this now. But yes, I'll be in favor of pulling these things back once this is done. Yeah, exactly. And I mean, I think the general consensus from the Federal Reserve from J. Paulus down is that we are in crisis and we're going to remain in crisis for some time until the unemployment rate is not nearly as high and it gets back to me. J. Paul inherited The Federal Reserve at a time when the unemployment rate was much lower than it is now. And I think he's very uncomfortable with the fact especially after doing the Fed listens tours that The unemployment rate and joblessness is really affecting, you.

"Seven to nine three seven seven six. Let's go to Jesse alive receiving they talked me. Thank you very much for taking the call longtime listener absolutely love what you doing. What you stand for keep it up man thing. My question for you is about Antonio Brown. Is this gruden's way trying to make up for the giant black guy? He got for dealing away Khalil Mack. I mean, it gets Tonio ground for steel. The numbers are great as far as the contract and everything is this his way to try to make a flash to make up for long. What kind of questions that? I mean think about it. What do you mean? Is it his way trying to make is it a good deal? Not a good deal gives a damn with the intent was is it a good deal is not good deal. Why do we worry so much about agendas? What's the outcome? If the outcome is that it's a good deal for you was the problem you trying to tell me of your rate is fan. You don't care about the fact that drew trying to make himself. Look good. What does that matter? No. It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. The fact is that they will listen this. And I gotta give credit to Mike may as well because I've been on this radio show and decried the fact that he was a general manager, and I still do because it's not about his competency level. I know it's there I know he can do the job. But the fact is he had no resume he bypassed leapfrog over a lot of people why because he had a good relationship with Jon Gruden while he's worked for the NFL network in being a draft of in a Scott valuate in all of this other stuff. The fact is that a lot of other folks will get a chance to be in that kind of position. But it doesn't a gate. The fact that he did a damn good job. Here. You got two first round picks. She's got to next year. You got another one at twenty twenty you keep all your first round picks. You didn't even give a second. You gave up a third round pick. For Antonio Brown. A third round in fifth round pick. They got three first round picks this year three this year to next year one and twenty twenty they got six first round picks in the next week drafts. And then give one first round didn't give up a second round. You gave up a third round up and a fifth round for audibly the best wide receiver in all football. I gotta give Jon Gruden Mike Mayock credit. They deserve it. Stephen. I'm going to be fair. Now fair is fair. And by the way, speaking of fair, Charley Casserly, suddenly reverse this position on calorie suddenly column Ariz, a better prospect, Patrick bones was coming out of college. Suddenly column could be a started quarterback of the NFL suddenly duty things in fairness to Charley Casserly, bring it up. A man max Kellerman point today on first take which is every weekday morning from ten AM to noon eastern time seven to nine AM Pacific. Max Kellerman pointed out how Charley Casserly was simply answering the question when he went off in that diatribe last week about column did I call them on the carpet for. And how is not really about a three sixty was answering one question talking about what the scouts told him yesterday was giving it evaluation. Not so fast. I disagreed with that the fact of the matter is Charley Casserly last week. Could've said exactly what he just said about Columbine. He could have set up the instead, listen, ladies and gentlemen. This is what I saw from him coming out of college. But this is what the scouts at the NFL scouting. Combine NFL officials at NFL scouting. Combine had to say about which were very shocking to me because there's nothing in this collegiate career that would indicate such harsh things to be said he could have done that. But take Yuli when Lincoln Riley, the coach Oklahoma came out and said, Charlie Kathleen spoke to us to anybody on his staff. I don't know what the hell's going on. He could have done that. But he didn't. Instead, he spoke as if the folks at the scouting combines word will Gus boil. And put out this stuff about Canterbury..
