FDA panel recommends authorization of Johnson & Johnson single-shot vaccine
"Panel. But advisers, the Food and Drug Administration unanimously says go for it authorized the Johnson and Johnson covert 19 vaccine for emergency use. An FDA analysis has found it to be 66%, effective overall in to have a quote, favorable safety profile. Doctor pull off. It has advised the FDA during the vaccine approval process, he's director, the Vaccine Education Center at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Dr Offer. Thanks so much for being with us. Thank you. The Madonna and and Fizer. Vaccines have a much higher effective, right, Don't they in the mid nineties? So what makes the Johnson and Johnson version a good idea? Just 66%. The return in five for vaccines were tested in the U. S. Only. The Johnson Johnson vaccine was also tested in several countries and South America as well as Mexico and South Africa. So it's not exactly the same population, so it's sort of comparing Apple. Sarge is also the strange that were circulating in South Africa is primarily the South African variant in this strange circulating in Brazil is primarily the Brazilian variant. So there were different strains really that this vaccine was tested against I gather from reports of senior fellow Panelists asked whether Johnson and Johnson's vaccine might be more effective if it were given his two shots, not just one. And that the company is studying this. What's your view on that? So if you look at the studies, they did the pre clinical studies they did in nonhuman primates, as well as the phase one to a studies. They didn't people. What they found was that second dose did increase the tighter or quantity. Virus specific, neutralizing Anna by suggesting that it might be more effective. It's very effective, though it preventing severe disease after a single dose, And it induces the kind of response so called sailor immune response that looks like it's going to have a fairly long that memory, which is all good. But that second off, maybe more effective. I think we'll probably know that by the second half of this year in which case then one could get a booster does. But this certainly provides protection against what you care about, which is hospitalization. I see you admission and death. It's it's virtually 100% effective at doing that. And if authorization follows soon, when one might the vaccine come to pharmacies, another vaccination sites and and how much right so it was follows the pattern of what we saw with the visor and then Madonna vaccines. Usually the FDA advisory committee, in which I said makes the recommendation. The FDA usually follows that recommendation within a day or two, And then it goes to the CDC, which then makes their recommendations about which group or groups might best benefit from this vaccine. That all happens within about a five day period. And then the vaccine can sort of roll off the assembly line into the arms of the American public. Doctor. Often you're a pediatrician. What do you tell parents who are concerned about vaccine for their Children, Andreas tely getting it and also concerned, for example, about what seems to be an increase in multi system, inflammatory syndrome and Children. Were rare but serious disease that's connected to covet. Truthful. I think the Children can suffer from this disease and with that multi system inflammatories is and they can occasionally dime. It's rare, but about as many Children have died of this infection is died of influenza a couple years ago and as typically dive influence every year, so I think we do need of actually, but we can't give that vaccine so we've tested in Children. And I think you're now seeing studies done for in the 12 18 year old. I think when those studies As we lost Dr off it. I think, I think, Doc. I think Dr effect. Well, Dr Paul off it. Remember the FDA vaccine advisory panel? We thank him for being with us if he can still hear us and our regret that apparently, the line

U.S. processes asylum seekers from Mexico migrant camp
"The Biden administration is allowing some asylum seekers who have been waiting at a camp in Mexico to cross into the U. S to have their asylum request processed. It comes as border crossings are the largest. They've been in a January in the past decade. See, this is Maria video went to the border to find out what is happening. These are the faces of some of the first asylum seekers in South Texas. Dozens who were living in limbo in this Mexican border camp under with the Trump administration called the migrant Protection protocols now one step closer to having their cases heard some waiting years. The Trump Administration's policy set more than 70,000 people back to Mexico, creating a bottleneck of cases now people in the camper remaining in place because they're currently being registered. Sam Bishop is a former Army veteran who says these migrants deserve a fair shot. There's a lot of fear fear in the U. S about migration that these are not the people need to be worried about. You know what they're trying to do it the right way. They're trying to do it responsibly and in a manner that's a consistent with our with our laws. Illegal crossings are also on the rise. With 3000 arrests on average per day in January on the southwest border. You have to go. It's okay. Some of the families we spoke with, say they cross the border with a smuggler. Your kids are telling these families the border is open. Under this administration. Those illegal crossings further complicate the asylum process. It seems very unfair to the people that are still in the encampment because they have waited to go through. Very legal process, and they've been there more than a year and a half now, but but we don't recommend that. Is this a byproduct of just a system that has had a ton of band AIDS but no true solution? Notre fix That's true. In Mexico said that they would not accept families back with young Children anymore. Tonight. We've also learned that border crossings by unaccompanied minors kids who come here alone and without their parents is on the rise as well.

Would you let your face be your passport?
"I'm jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story hillary. Beaumont is a freelance investigative reporter based in toronto. Hello hillary hey are you doing. I'm doing well. I'm a little creeped out. About the next time i traveled. Thanks to this piece. No problem just happy to make you aware will listen. Let's start with the actual process. You had your irises scanned as part of reporting this. What is that like. tell me about it. yeah i thought it was. It would be really interesting to go into a jail in texas as part of this story because there was a sheriff there. this guy named omar lucio who had been lake pretty open about the fact that he was using this iris scanner in his jail. His jail is very close to the texas mexico border and this iris scanner was helping basically deport people at the us border And i wanted to go inside the jail and see what this was like. I went in saw how they were using it in jail. They were scanning inmates in an not telling them what this technology was. I volunteer to use it as well as essentially like a little camera. You get your is scanned. It checks your is against database and tells you who the person is and if they have a criminal history and i'm assuming years came up negative. They came up negative. Yes do you know what happened to the scan after you were done well for my is deleted it but for inmates in the jail they keep them indefinitely they basically ended up in government database that is shared with law enforcement agencies across the us like the fbi and also immigration and customs enforcement and essentially they they allow agencies to deport people more quickly or identify people who are not using their real names. And that's really how it works. Is there anything in. we're going to get beyond This one texas jail this one technology In just a second but is there anything preventing that jail or any other place That does this from giving those to anyone else like i. I understand it being used in a law enforcement context though we can certainly debate that. But i mean how private is it wants. Your eyes are out there. Yeah i mean for a lot of these technologies whether it's in a jail context or when you're crossing an international border. What i think people should know is that you're you're in a space of reduced privacy expectation. So it's really hard to say no to these technologies than once your irises or your face or any. Biometric identification is scanned. It can be indefinitely stored in a database an shared with all of these different agencies. Know whether or not you're a criminal. Can you explain a little bit about What a place with a reduced expectation of privacy is an and what does that let the government do yeah So spaces of reduced privacy expectation include borders prisons detention facilities and essentially these areas. Where legally you cannot retain your rights to privacy as well as you wouldn't other context so One example is a back in twenty sixteen. I believe i was flying from toronto pearson. To north dakota and to to report on the standing rock protest and i was flagged for secondary screening and The actually confiscated my phone only about ten minutes But it made me nervous hell You know. I had a pass password on my phone of course but it just made me lake feel so violated that they could take my phone like that even just for a few minutes. I was wondering like things were rushing through my head of like. What are they gonna do with my phone. How long are i going to be kept here. What's going on. And this is just an example of what you can and can't do at borders like you. You have a really hard time retaining your privacy your data your phone in these spaces because what are you supposed to do under those circumstances

State Trends In Employer Premiums And Deductibles
"Recently. The commonwealth fund examined the extent to which people with moderate incomes in employer health plans face high premium and deductible costs relative to their income to discuss the results of the study and the implications for policy holders going forward. I'm joined by sarah collins vice president of healthcare coverage and access at the commonwealth fund. Sarah welcome to the show. Thank you so much. Mike so sarah watches. Start out by telling us why you initiated this study and what you're looking for well employer health coverage is really the backbone of the us health insurance system more than half the population of the united states about one hundred sixty million people get their coverage through an employer so the purpose of this study was to look at trends over the last decade and the amount that workers and their families are paying for their employer health insurance and the size of their deductibles in all fifty states and the district of columbia and we compare these worker cost to median income in each state in order to get a sense of the economic burden of these costs on middle income families. And how did you go about conducting the research. We've been conducting the study nearly every year since twenty ten Using the latest data From what's known as the insurance components. Federal medical medical expenditure panel survey This survey is the most comprehensive national survey of use employer. health plans In twenty nineteen Which is the latest year of data. That's available This survey interviewed more than forty thousand business. Establishments With an overall response rate of fifty nine percent we computed from the survey reported statewide average premiums so we take the premiums reported by business establishments and average them across the state and we do the same deductibles and then we compared those averages to the median income in each state so this provides a rough measure of the affordability protectiveness of employer coverage and allows us to track changes over time. And what did you find after you conducted this study. We found that premium contributions and deductibles in employer plans took up a growing share of workers incomes over the past decade those costs together so premium contributions and deductibles accounted for eleven point five percent of meeting median household income and twenty nineteen. This is up from about nine point one percent a decade earlier the this cost burden in employer. Health plans has increased over the past decade because cumulative growth in median income has been slower growth in premium contributions deductibles. We also find that these contributions premium contributions deductibles as well as needing income vary considerably across the country the total cost of premiums and deductibles across single and family policies ranged from a low of about fifty. Five hundred dollars in hawaii. Too high of more than eighty five hundred dollars in nine states. Meet an income ranged from a low of about forty nine thousand and mississippi in mexico too highs around ninety thousand or more in massachusetts minnesota new hampshire new jersey what workers pay towards their premiums and deductibles comprised about ten percent or more of median income in thirty seven states in two thousand ten and twenty nineteen. This is up from about ten states Twenty ten in nine states workers combined costs were fourteen percent or more of meeting income workers in new mexico and louisiana face the highest potential cost relative to their income more than seventeen percent and we actually also find that people living in states that have lower meeting incomes like new mexico are doubly burdened on average workers in states where the median income is lower than the national median income face higher premiums and deductibles compared to people in states with higher median incomes. Also find that. Many people employer plans across. The country are insured Because their deductibles are high. Relative to their incomes tacoma fund has found that insured people who have high out of pocket costs and deductibles relative to their income are more likely to face problems accessing care or paying medical bills Than people who are not under insured. We've we've defined someone with insurance as under insert at their health plans. Deductibles deductible equals about five percent or more of income or if they're out of pocket costs reached similar thresholds in this study across the country. Many people employer plans are underinsured by this measure average deductibles relative median income or five percent or more in twenty states and ranged as high as seven percent in mexico.
Republicans Push Back On Historic Nomination Of Deb Haaland For Interior Secretary
"And Natural Resource is committee today held confirmation hearings for New Mexico representative Deb Holland to be the next secretary of interior. A confirmation would be historic. She would be the first Native American Cabinet member in the nation's history. Her nomination by President Biden has also been criticized by oil State Republicans because of her stated opposition issues such as to fracking in the Dakota access pipeline. Ecuadorian reports from Fresno. The history being made by Deb Holland's nomination was hailed by all on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, even those who are skeptical of her policy views The special nature of the moment was evident as the New Mexico congresswoman introduced herself to the committee and the nation. I spent summers in the Sita, or small village on Laguna Pueblo, the location of my grandparent's traditional home. It was there that I learned about my culture from my grandmother by watching her cook and by participating in traditional feast days and ceremonies, it was in the cornfields with my grandfather, where I learned the importance of water. And protecting our resource is where I gained a deep respect for the Earth Committee chair, Joe Manchin outlined the immensity of the task. The Interior Department manages 500 million acres of land. 1/5 of the entire country. The 70,000 employees oversee Parks Monuments Wildlife refuge because dams, reservoirs and canals. It also supervisors mineral resource lands that produced 20% of the nation's energy. Citing previous statements Deb Holland had made about fossil fuel production. Wyoming Senator John Barrasso, the committee's ranking member, set the theme which Republican members came back to repeatedly. Oil production in federal lands and oil pipelines, especially the Dakota access pipeline. By signing an executive order to ban all new oil coal gas leases on federal lands. The president is taking a sledgehammer to Western states economies. Ban on federal leasing could result in 33,000 workers losing their jobs in Wyoming. Representative Hollins home state of Wyoming, 62,000 workers stand to lose their jobs. Holland also faced questions over her appearance at protests of the Dakota access pipeline in North Dakota before she was elected to Congress in 2018. Holland said she went there in solidarity with Native American tribes and other water protectors, who felt they were not consulted adequately before the multi state pipeline was approved. President Joe Biden has sense next the project. Conservative

The Floor, not the Ceiling: The Supreme Court in 2021
"Welcome back background boroughs. Ashanti here and we have another episode for today. I'm so excited to talk to. Bagnoli gilmore the state media campaigns director for planned parenthood federation of america onion. How're you doing today and doing. Well thank you so much for having me very excited to. Have you very excited to talk about the important work that you do today at planned. Parenthood really diving into the attacks that we've been seeing on reproductive justice reproductive freedom abortion rights and educating our listeners on how they can help fight back before we dive in intrude fashion. We have to know what brought you to this work awesome. Well i am a huge fan of your work and this podcast. I'm really excited to be here a little bit about me. I am in asian american woman. Born and bred in white middle america foreign raised in kansas city missouri. Where i still live today doing this work before coming into reproductive rights work. I was a journalist for ten years. And i think my work is a reporter. Gave me a front row seat to the every day. Impact that policies have on our lives. I was a healthcare reporter and solve the direct line between what happens in our state legislatures. What happens in our city. Councils and how that impacts our daily lives in how we go about it. And in the midwest that also means a very white dominant culture that sets the tone and the conversation and passes policies in that lens and i spent ten years covering those issues and decided to transition into media work for an advocacy organization that i have long admired and loved for the work that we do at our health centers across the country though now i focused on state policies state fights as we call it here at planned. Parenthood and the intersection. Those policies have on our ability to access reproductive healthcare went you said about how white men dominate policy. It's so true. And i want us to talk about what. We're seeing happening at state houses across the country. Most our listeners. Know the bg is one thing that i do my full time. Job is on the president of merge we focus on recruiting and training democratic women to run for office and we've had a huge focus on state houses in making sure that we're getting democratic women in there. I love talking abou nevada. Colorado new mexico all of those states are majority women and their state houses due to emerge alums and we see the impact that women have on the policies that come out and in a lot of the houses though where unfortunately seeing policy that is not the best when it's coming to abortion access so only two months into twenty twenty one were seeing these attacks on reproductive freedom in state houses and this statistic is crazy more than one hundred bills have been introduced in state houses in the past few weeks that target abortion access. There are so many reasons why state legislators are important. But this is one of the main ones hang you tell us about some of the things that are happening. Yeah impact that number continues to grow today when we're talking. That number is up to more than one hundred and eighty anti-abortion bills that have been filed or are pending an in early february. And that's why all. Because i only saw that hundred number last week. Yep we've seen almost another hundred a week. Yup absolutely And over forty. Five percent of those bills are some form of an abortion ban. And so you know. I think we're sitting at a moment where we are staring at an immense amount of opportunity and hope and change because of new presidential administration because of pro reproductive healthcare majority in congress yet our state legislatures do not reflect this reality where policies are made. I believe it is twenty nine states right now where anti-abortion politicians hold majorities twenty nine states over half And we are seeing a targeted attack on reproductive freedom our ability to control our bodies in lives because again this is about power and control. This conversation is rooted in white supremacy and has nothing to do with the health and wellbeing of any person who needs access to health care with really clear about that because that is what you will hear these politicians wax on about right and they'll even coop racial justice movements to talk about you know black babies and abortion end it is all rooted in white supremacy and the real question that we need to answer is who gets power and control of our bodies and our lives and our future right it be the politician predominantly white men or should it be being able to control that and so these are the policies that are getting past at the state level. And they're not just. Abortion bans a lot of these. The majority of these bills are incremental restrictions. That make it harder. Particularly on people with low incomes women people of color emigrants to access reproductive healthcare basic healthcare birth control annual exams cancer screening and of course abortion.
There is a Surge Of Coronavirus Deaths in Mexico
"New data reveal a surge of cova deaths in mexico. The country has officially confirmed more than two million cases. An almost one hundred eighty thousand deaths from the corona virus but mortality rates. Tell an even more grim tale over the past year deaths were fifty two percent higher than in previous years. According to the financial times that puts mexico's rate of excess deaths much higher than that of countries such as america and brazil assembled woman to stay lot yet earlier this month. Mexico's president andres manuel. Lopez obrador widely known as anglo said. We are living in a stellar moment. The kovic spike is far from the country's only problem poverty. Corruption and crime are all on the rise but polls indicate that two years into amyloid term. Most mexicans are willing to give him more time. Mexico's president is incredibly popular. Sir burke is our mexico bureau chief he wanted on slide in two thousand eighteen and he still has approval ratings that most other leaders would be extremely jealous off at sixty two percent as it stands and that's all in spite of what looks like a very good handling of most things most obviously at the moment the pandemic. What do you mean by that. Mexico is a terrible record for covert hospitals are full and oxygen tanks in short supply. It's done very few tests for covid. It hasn't provided very much financial support tool for people who are suffering or being asked to stay home not to work the vaccination which is one sort of bright spot potentially insofar as mexico has lined up enough vaccines to cover its population. But it's a very very slow start. That might be picking up now. But otherwise there talks of ten years to get to seventy five percent of the population being vaccinated. I'm currently this has been a problem again from the top. So i'm low has completely downplayed the importance of the pandemic. He has refused to wear a face mask apart from wants when he flew in an airplane to go to the united states and he got covid himself the stars of this year and he reappeared and everyone thought well. Maybe he'll have changed his mind after this. But he reiterated again that he wouldn't be wearing a face mask so in the face of that pandemic response on wires his popularity still so high so he had this amazing vision for mexico in eighteen. Which is why he won with a landslide. He said. I'm going to do a fourth transformation. These big bold plan to make the country fairer and more equitable ending corruption and crime. And making sure there was economic growth where the gains were fairly distributed so that poor people go rich. The reality is slightly different from the vision so far in the two and a bit years. He's been in power. He's been undoing. The reforms of previous presidents and dismantling that system throwing out the baby with the bath water you could say. And then his new initiatives mainly they seem to fail to solve the problems that they put two and then a of third element is that he's really concentrated power in the presidency and some people say that they get things done and other people think they're more evil intentions behind that well. Let's come back to the throwing the baby out with the bathwater part. What's he'd been doing. In terms of reform he abolished prosper. Which was a very sort of lauded conditional cash transfer program for the poor he also reversed education. Reform was much more meritocratic assessment of teachers. A big one at the moment is he's trying to reverse bit by bit and opening of the energy market. That happened in two thousand thirteen so it was open to private and foreign enterprises which make electricity cheaper and greener on current. Neither congress is debating a bill which would favor cfe which is state owned electricity provider. So they're actually go first into the grid. As opposed to the cheaper electric which is often green provided by private companies. This would obviously raise prices and deti energy but it could also breach the. Us mexico canada agreement. Which is the north american free trade pact to replace after another sort of big thing has been getting rid of or proposing get rid of a lot of the autonomous agencies such as the freedom of information agency all these ones keep checks on the government and what it's doing so well he's been tearing all that down. What's he been building up. Will you say his own initiatives. Don't do what they should. He's very dedicated to fiscal discipline. That's a good thing especially in a so-called left leaning president it's also become very counter productive during the pandemic. The imf is telling mexico to spend more so far it's only spent nine point seven percents of gdp on extra efforts during the pandemic and more needs to be done and some people think this is going to need to scarring that there's going to be permanent drop in output caused by loss of jobs and businesses so the recovery is going to be much much slower in mexico than elsewhere. He's also splashed out on bizarre old-economy projects such as pouring money. Pex the world's most indebted oil company. And then he's putting eight billion dollars into a refinery at the time when no other country is building refineries and it's not clear what economic return that will be from that and you mentioned the big transformative plan was in part about ending endemic corruption and crime. How's that been going. Well either jason. That was point. Four percent dip in murders last year and he proclaimed this dip as a very significant success. But that's after a rise the before and frankly during the pandemic you'd expect it to have dropped them. In in other countries across latin america that also suffer high levels of violence that has been the case he also rejected the previous government's tactic of killing and capturing crime kingpins because led to a splintering of gangs. And you might be worth rejecting that. But there's no alternative puts in place. So i think his vision is that you alleviate poverty and crime goes down. That might happen in the long term but it does nothing to sort out the short term problem the problem of the current chapel as opposed to the ones who are still only three years old on corruption. As you could say he's set a good example so has been good political rhetoric. The stiffer penalties on bribe-taking for bureaucrats. But he's unless strengthen the institutions to carry that ford again it's more rhetoric than actual institutional change or heft. The national anticorruption prosecutors overwhelmed with cases and one government agency suggests that the number of acts of corruption actually rose by nineteen percent between two thousand seventeen and two thousand nineteen. It is as you say not a big list of happy news here. I mean when will that's ring down to the electorate. I mean how long we'll mexicans continue to support him for his failures because he really has persuaded a lot of people that he's like them and cares about the he's very popular because of who he is and his message rather than necessarily what he does. The opposition is seen as corrupt on what came before him was horrifically corrupt. And so he's seen the best of a bad bunch by a loss of people. But you know here's a classic populace and a lot of elite azam Against him they see him as a mexican version of hugo chavez. Which i think is a little bit of an exaggeration. But there's this big divides on the mix of policy failure. I'm power grabbing is is worrying.

I had some really great teachers who were like. This is what you should do. This is really really good. I thought about it from they're like well. Maybe it's something. nba can do this. I could be a writer writers. I love Invented just kind of unfolded. When i got to college And there were so many people that were so supportive of my writing and poetry and just teaching me how to be in that space En- just happened to what i wanted to say authentically in kind of tune out. What a lot of the other influences are other writers. I think growing up in the nineties. I wanted to talk about identity a lot. I mean it wasn't until the late nineties until we even had something in the census that allowed you to be biracial. So i would always get the questions what are you. What are you You know just very rude. Comments often feeling not enough of one of the other affiliate black enough not mexican enough. So i wrote about my identity and how i felt. Your dad is black. His new orleans. Your mom born in mexico immigrated here when she was fifteen had it those cultures. How were they playing out at home. It's lovely. I love my kids. Identify appalachian in that that even have that term to identify with my oldest daughter who is brown and we talk about how we are mirror images of each other's experience where i fought a lot to inform people of my identity as a black woman. She does the opposite to inform people of dot and so we talk about that a lot and she really pushes me to see how the world sees me had well. She's her an how they see her as black. I and how they typically see as the enough i in. What does that mean about how we move in spaces. It's a salvatori household. I think i get that. From both of my cultures. We do often that for the announcement. Those in then we have gumbo. For new year's we are very lucky to be able to tap into so many different parts of us. How would didn't play. Though when you were growing up oh my pearson talk about race. It was not a forward conversation properly until the rodney king riots. Now sophomore in high school and my father at the time was working for the lapd and so we. We did not have a conversation. The way i have with my kids about race ethnicity identity how the world sees you ought to be prepared for and then maybe around my sophomore year in high school right before the rise of doing a lot of reading and read the biography malcolm x. I say that radicalized much split on my activism button that has never been turned off since then it's pretty much in succession than the riots happened. An stuff was bubbling in. La before ride became there was a lot of tension between black and korean communities in los angeles and stuff. It wasn't something that happened out of nowhere. It it definitely was arise that shifted allots. That shifted a conversation. I never knew. My dad was locked in his apartment during the watts riots. We had never had that conversation before.

"I imagine there are plenty of challenges to especially. If you've gotta with sixty five dogs in it at one point do you. For instance he. You've been bitten much all. I've been bitten quite often. But it's always my fault if i get bitten i'm not paying attention or i'm not handling an animal properly one time. I got bitten because there was a mother and her puppies in a kennel that we were spaying and she was not happy to be in that kennel. And i put my fingers in to move the kennel and she bit my fingers and so it was my fault. I i wasn't paying attention. I've never been attacked by an dog. I've never been bitten as an act of just sort of surprising aggression. I wonder too. I mean it's so sweet when you tell the stories about the individual dogs and i can imagine how rewarding it is hearing stories like taffy but there must be other challenges and probably very sad side to this. Occasionally you deal with as well all. There's lots of sad sides. I mean some of the dogs. We get our like nothing you've ever seen. They are skin and bones. Their skin as a mass. They're covered with take some fleas out. There is are infected. Their ears or bitten have wounds at my favorite thing in on the planet is determined one of those dogs in to a healthy happy dog. And we've done it over and over again and it's like nothing you can imagine it's fabulous so it's it's very rewarding but it's very challenging to it. Sounds like an. I wonder the dog lady of mexico becoming the dog lady of mexico. Do you think the cost of that has been for you financially. The cost has been huge because when we started we didn't have any support so we supported the rescue as far as emotionally. There's been times when it was hard to keep going when you know you could save a certain dog or you saw cruelty. That broke your heart. How much longer you think you're going to keep doing this for well. I have a wonderful woman. Named trina mancini wants to take over the rescue for me but at the moment were working together. I'm sixty seven years old to this forever but for right now you're still ready to be the dog lady of mexico for the foreseeable future all over again and by the dog lady of mexico i really referring to all the people that i've met over the years that are also saving animals and doing their part to help. I still love it. And i when i'm not there. I mix my dogs. Because they're all lined dogs Listen alison it was very nice to meet you over the radio. Thank you very much for your time.

"mexico" Discussed on Policy Matters
"Mexico perhaps legal perhaps illegally. And so I think in that sense the The item high on the agenda for twenty twenty any is essentially going to be to tackle drug's a drug trafficking in violence in Mexico ambassador. Christopher Landau the American ambassador in Mexico has already made needed very clear. That's on the top of the agenda along with immigration now that the USCCA's done and and I think it's going to be a kind of a rocky road ahead this year. Now we've talked a lot about these various issues that are shaping the the binational relationship looking beyond the specific. Civic issues has been a change in the way how our bilateral relationship is being conducted. I I would say yes. Yes the one thing that I believe has fundamentally changed is that during the Clinton and the and the Bush and the Obama Administration's there was an attempt at building institutions and strengthening the institutions that there existed At the the center here at the Baker Institute the Center for the United States and Mexico were about to finish two books that I think are important to mention one is The future of US Mexico relations nations strategic foresight and the other one is called Binational Commons Institution Building and governance in the US. Mexico border. The idea is that these two who countries half to administer and manage a binational competence that borderline and the borderlands and all the issues that lie in between And the best way to do it on a permanent basis with certainty and And and I guess considering the interests of both both countries is to build institutions all the institutions that were inherited from the twentieth century. Most of them. are now being questioned or or dismantled or essentially starved. But he's seen a shift to a more personalized approach to the bilateral relations. That is the one thing that I think we have observed. And that is that these two men. MR TRUMP AND MR l Pez rather prefer to centralize almost a management of all these different Complex issues in in their hands and then use them as kind of a political cards that they can trade exchange and threatened with So far though there hasn't been a clash between the two primarily because Mr Lopes rather has been unwilling to engage in a spat with Mr trump and Mr bar the attorney attorney general of the United States has been down to Mexico City Twice in the last few months to convey the wishes of the trump administration on immigration on trade on on security and and I think Mexico so far has complied In a piece to Washington. We don't know what can happen in the future. But as of right now The relationship is essentially being managed by specific individuals. Like bar. Like Jared Kushner in the White House who has also been given in his portfolio the relationship with Mexico to some extent But what is missing. Here is the more formal agreements and of course the institutions uh-huh and many of them that exist our at At risk so there's definitely a change the style of these two men is quite different than Than that of their predecessors I will. US Mexican Relationship Change if Democrats elected president in November and specifically almost all the Democratic candidates Taking a far more What I would call generous line on migration questions could we see a sudden surge of Central American migrants appearance should a Democrat be elected. Well I think the very first question to address his what would happen. It depends on on on the Democrat. Right what would happen if Joe Biden or closure or footage or somebody more moderate more sort of in the middle were to be elected in November. Twenty twenty I think that they would probably try to restore the status quo. ONTA- perhaps more formal channels more diplomatic channels more political negotiations on dealing with his The issue of Central American would be very complex. But it has to be put on the table perhaps managed regionally we saw how President Obama managed the search in two thousand fourteen in two thousand fifteen. This is not new. This is not something that has happened. Under the trump administration. These searches of immigrants from Central America. Already ready happened under the Obama Administration and they were handled multi-laterally with what Amal and Salvador Honduras with Mexico and trying to manage the process of asylum seekers and trying to stop programs Within Central American so on I think we would see some of that That doesn't mean that these are just will not continue you but but what the trump administration is not necessarily saying you Mexico. You handle them in your southern border they should not get to the. US Mexico border and and that's essentially the way it's been handled in the last two two and a half years. The greatest uncertainty would be under somebody like Sanders or Warren Then under The other candidates potential candidates In the Democratic Party. Thank you so much. We're going to have you back on again. A because does this bi-national relationship is simply so important that it bears constant study and constant discussion. Thank you so much. Thank you Joe. And the only thing I want to close with this to say I don't think there's any other country Then Mexico which has a deeper and broader impact on the lives of so many millions of Americans than Mexico so Mexico?

"mexico" Discussed on The New Influence Podcast
"It's been a while twenty twenty next ten years ahead of us. Think it's going to be a good one it's going to be an exciting excite one. Certainly Le Change happening. I think it's for the better a few a few pin. Shall we say few easing into this new dimension that we're coming into now few pens along the way but I think long term. It's going to be good so I'm as I said coming at you from Mexico Zico so it's January. It's winter back home at call to wet. It's raining everyone's down in the dumps. No one's got money. You've got at the Post Christmas and New Year Blues. So where am I at. I'm in thirty degrees heat on the east coast of Mexico so so I hit the winter no winter person. Despite being born in the north east of England the winter is not my forte. I all I love sunshine. The hotter the better if it's twenty five degrees a more than happy in that four eight degrees in even as well but a hit the called despite Vajpayee northerner so. I'm in Mexico just avoiding the winter Z.. They're going to go to Thailand or Mexico but being to Thailand five times so I thought screw it a come to Mexico of only been here once before and it was only for like two and a half weeks so I thought I'd see a bit more of the country spent a bit more time here. Absorbing country country learning more about it and so on and trying to Learn a bit more Spanish. I am learning book Ito but I'm no very conversational national. I know the basics and know the swear words and so on but I couldn't have fallen conversation with someone that's for sure but he still got a little bit time left so by the time I fly back back to the UK in March. Maybe I will be more conversational in Spanish. The reason why I'm doing a podcast one. I haven't done one in a while. saw a day one to. I've had some horrendous kind of flu. It's just had me holed up in bed for being ill for about ten days but like being really for like three or four those those days and that was like when you hold up in bed. You've got the shivers. It was twenty five degrees and I was wearing a hoodie shivering myself. I had had terrible stomach pains all the horrible things that come with having the flu hallucinations sweating but freezing. Everything thing and just felt horrible. Both teach word after a visit to the pharmacy. I'm over the worst of it now. Still got a bit of a cough. Still call an eight a few do things but I think touch wood fingers crossed. I'm on the mend. which is good so I thought I'd do a podcast while I'm stuck in the apartment and while I can't go out and enjoy the beautiful beach and the beautiful weather? I thought I did a podcast on Mexico and for people who who may have not been here before they want to know a bit more about us maybe for people who you know might have been here. But they haven't been to the places I've been so Mexico is quite a big country. I think the population is it. Your million Spanish as a first language. Obviously whether it's in North America or Central America. I'M NOT A to Shula. Some people says Central America. Some people said North America. Personally I thought it was always North Surrey. Central America and I thought North America was Canada Eh in the US air. And then I thought went down into Central America like Mexico and Belize and then into South America where you have Brazil Argentina Argentina and Paraguay and so on but hey. I'm not sure whether it's North America Central America so I started off in Mexico City which is the capital and it's a huge city so even coming from London which is a big city very big city. Mexico is a huge city. I think in in total population. It's like twenty million. I think London in total population is like eight point five million so substantially bigger very busy having come from a a big city. Then I'm going to another big city like Mexico City. DidN'T WANNA stare too long like I. I wasn't in that big city mood so I only stayed there a week It's nice but I often find that every big city I go to. I've lived in London for thirteen years and every big city. I go to attend to compare era to London and to be honest. My personal preference is that London is the best city in the world. So once you've experienced London and and you go to other cities including New York in the as well like for me. There's no comparison so it depends what you're after but went to Mexico. City city spent a week. There had a friend who recently moved out because he met a girl and he'd been there for about two months so met with him and he kinda showed me around the best is governed again and yet he seems to be enjoying it. He was in the nice parts there are dodgy. Gee Parts and the nice parts like any really. I didn't feel particularly unsafe. I have my wits about me like I'm not stupid like you go to any city even when I was in London came about me when I'm walking around at night and so on getting ready to ruin if anyone's going to pull a knife out me or something like that But it's a good city. We good people. The weather's or care I mean for this time. The it's like twenty two degrees tops. which is good? It's Nice not too hot for the people who don't like the heat Certainly better than Europe this time of year as well So yeah spent spent a week them some cool people l. but again it was just like get me to the beach. My intention was always to go to the beach. So Mexico's of beaches. Actually I've got to costs or might have well. It's like the East Coast and the West Coast and then it's got like seven tips as well and on the West Coast. That's where you have like the likes of Acapulco as you probably heard of by the famous song from the air. Is I think it was the four tops. Wasn't going loco down in Acapulco so you have that side and then on the other side you have the likes of Cancun you have the likes of play del Carmen. Which is where where I currently am? And then you have to as well so I opted to go to the east coast so the Cancun pay del Carmen into side of things because one it's hotter so this side of the country taught at this time the so I knew I'd be getting to thirty degrees whereas on the other side it's only like twenty I five degrees and two. I'd been here before briefly. So it's been a couple of weeks in Playa del Carmen. So I knew what I was expecting and I really enjoyed it last time as here. Too Nice people had some good memories from its screw it. I'm here not to seek new places and go for adventure. I'm here. Hey to chill in the sun the gym do a little bit work rest. Some bear that get a Tan lose a bit fat that have put on of the winter into and just generally chill or and of course Lynn Spanish as well which I am doing very very slowly so spent a week in Mexico City but then decided decided to fly to cocoon Tony bowers. I think it's about two always flight if I remember correctly. So it's a two hour flight so Mexico is quite a big city in terms of geographical space So you can get flight all around the country so I flew out here at the at the end of November. So being here ever since and I've just recently just being chilling just being having fun down by the beach. Just she's been getting up to watch the sunset because we're at the side of the country where you see the sunset not the sunrise so I'm normally sunset person and of written about this before like I loosened sunsets. I love to watch a sunset love to see the single down. Then hey the cricket's come out and you see the the change in the clothes in the sky and across the water and just kind of puts you in a reflective mood and people change like I go through some kind of I guess you could say like spiritual kind of Falen as the sun's going down and that you hear that kind of a said the crickets coming up and I think people get a bit reflective like one more day over the finite number of days is that we all have and I've never really been a morning person so I've never really gotten a for sunset but because I'm on this side of the country this is what have to do so it was getting up at like six o'clock and while staying the beach was like a five minute walk. I love the fact that you know you can get up the morning. Put your shorts on put a vest on grab a coffee and just walk to the beach in while it's still dark takes you five minutes together and just watch soon rise some the sunrises pretty epic as well and again it's kind of a spiritual movement and you get a lot of people who down for the sunrise to and they go to watch churn I think. Yeah it's just something nice to watch and Kinda sets up the dare you look at their head in a more positive mood. Will I do so I I was doing that for quite some time yet. What Sunrise and then just chilling down the beach Dune like some cardio work signed up to a local gym eating good foods unhealthy foods? And of course when it's hot your body doesn't tend to want to eat too many calories but when you're in the cold light you are back home in the European eighteen winter. Your body just wants to see ten eight thousand fifteen hundred more calories per day than more e would in the sunshine just because he wants wants to go into that stavish put on a bit where to you know keep keep the cold out and so on so yeah. I've found that you know even being here like six weeks probably dropped eight nine pounds consciously as well because of his have been on the Jim too so this is my second time here first. Time was last year and I was quite apprehensive because like you I probably watch the news and saw the report heard about the gang violence and the murders and so on. And let's be honest honest. That does happen. It does happen in this country but thankfully like in the tourist areas depressive. Very safe actually. Like would I say say this with trepidation. That where I'm staying very safe. It's probably safe of London in terms of like if you look at the data in terms of crime and so on and So it depends on where you are in Mexico how dangerous it is and a lot of the murders are gang related gang on gallon so you have the cartels are generally not in this part of the country. They're up in the north need the. US border so the cartels a fighting of fighting. I know of a obviously drugs. Define over land the fighting over the rights to be able to you know get the jokes over to the the the. US border And it is pretty horrendous like in terms of the cartels. Hey they run the country. Almost there was an incident a couple of months ago where they tried to capture one cartel member and it ended up just being obsolete war between the military the Mexican military and the cartels tells unknown behold the cartels one so the cartels had more military power than the official military of the Mexican government which is quite scary in a wins quite shocking..
"mexico" Discussed on What Next | Daily News and Analysis
"So the story it tells so much. First of all just about the sanitary conditions on the border which is people are bathing in a river and another. You also wrote that this river are it's just not clean like dead animals will float in it too. Yeah so that's one issue and then there's the issue of there's so many people that the city Mexico isn't properly able to care for them so even though this girl was saved from drowning she didn't get maybe the full treatment that she might have gotten if the resources were available. Yeah yeah and it's something that happens. It doesn't just happen to that. Other people will tell me the same thing with the next government says we give them state health insurance. They're covered but when you talk to people who are using it and who need More than you know the basics down you actually realize I know there there are some gaps here And you know no one's really talking about them. So how had brainy and her father ended up in this camp. They traveled from on Ludicrous and they had arrived to the border in mid-july but yeah I mean. They had their first court date in October late October around there. You know that that kind of gives you a sense of how long they waited and how long you know people have three four five hearing sometimes. So they're gonNA be there for a while I know they have an asylum case but the data was very like. I don't WanNa talk about why we fled. Why don't they WANNA talk about? What led them to the border? One thing that the media attention has sort of top people as they don't need to tell the whole story sometimes they don't want to. It's painful you know. They're they're also oh worried that if it gets back to wherever they're from there could be consequences and they don't have a lot of trust 'em people so it sounds like Brennan or DADS Salvador. They really settled in. You said Salvador had a job even in the camp. Yeah I The job has now the last time I saw him like two weeks ago. He was a parking attendant. And that's I mean that's the thing one of the in my experience covering immigration. I covered the caravans last year. And you know life goes on regardless of what is happening people get jobs people fall in love. New Friendships are made people become more politicised in some cases so salvador is working now as a parking attendant and are they living in a tent. Yeah yeah they're living tent on the street in the plaza. That's right at the foot of the bridge that connects Brownsville and the models. And it's you know on this plaza on concrete and they're just surrounded founded by tents. Just like squished together. There's no official number. I've heard yet. Twenty six hundred twenty four hundred fifteen hundred sit back to back tents year but the cold fronts coming in and when you have that many people you know basically stacked up on top of each other and people get sick it spreads and you have vulnerable people you have pregnant women in these camps of kids and so there is concern about so the health implications of Mexico with the camps conditions so squalid an so visible Mexican officials tools have been trying to make migrants moved to a shelter run by the Mexican government rules in this happened back in November one asylum seeker Acre filmed a Mexican official holding clipboard announcing that adults who didn't move would be separated from their children. A voice off camera Asks the man with a clipboard. How he would like it if his kids were taken away? Then the voice asks. What are you hoping? What article of the law? Let's take kids away by force that you you gotta think so. The Mexican government is basically set up like a separate area where it's more contained. Yeah so Tom. On the banks of the river see can't really see them over there. They had built these big white tents that you that it is what you imagine when you think of refugee camps and they were trying to put a move in there but but the people in the camp are just so distrustful of the government at this point They don't WanNa go over there. Yeah you talk to a hundred man Dan who is actually refusing to leave. The tent city is currently operates and I was surprised because he was really seeing. That move is a a political act. He was saying I don't WanNa be moved out of sight. Were not holding protests signs but being out here creates social pressure for for Mexico and the US. Do you think a lot of the migrants themselves that way more than you think I was. I was truly surprised when he said that. Because I wasn't thinking about it that way either But there is a lot of people who have this protests in pressure awareness. Yes a few months ago. A group of them shut down a bridge DUB Ridge for fifteen hours a very popular bridge for for commerce and people coming back and forth the United States dates. Yeah and I was really surprised. People think of of immigrants in this situation as these helpless victims sometimes just sort of like the idea that we have but the far from it and more recently when I was talking to Alexandra this man. He's well aware of what. Looks like when people crossover and they look at this camp he knows that local residents see it as an eyesore. He he knows that it's gonNA attract US reporters. Because I think one of the reasons that the ruin in Mexico has been able to expand and continue in part is because it has largely played out away from. US is in most people in the US. Don't understand how it's working versus something like family separation before vary upset. This is something that they don't see. So how does all this social pressure sure and political pressure. How does it impact a family like Brennan Salvador? I mean they went through this awful almost drowning and then they returned to the camp and they had to keep on top of their asylum claim. What happens to that? What kind of family now Britney crossed into the US as an unaccompanied minor? The Dad you know let go I. It's something that's been happening at. The camp increasingly where parents are sending their kids alone and and because they go alone considered unaccompanied minors by the US and they can't send them back under MP doesn't they can apply that to them and so the kids go into government custody and either with a sponsor or or they stay in like some sort of foster care programme Mo- most most go to a sponsor brothers aunts uncles if they're lucky and other parents whose over their cousins but also family friends. Let's who are willing to take responsibility for for these kids so this father and daughter the neither way up from Honduras They've been together in this camp. The daughters almost drowned and then eventually the solution is for the dad to basically push his daughter across the border and hope for the best to them. It's it's a better option to better choice than what they're Darren during the camp here. Here's the question that I kept asking myself reading all of your reporting from the last few months which is when this remain in Mexico policy was announced. The idea was that we'll create a situation that people don't want to be in. We have so many families children coming to the border and and we want them to stop coming so we'll make this as uncomfortable as possible. Have you seen any evidence that people have stopped coming. Yeah the numbers have gone down Border Patrol. They'll go say like this is Success I wanted to do I'll give you an example just four short months ago. Our daily apprehensions were close to five thousand. And today I just looked at it all my screen before left. My office is below seventeen hundred. We have essentially ended catch and release if you come to our order now with the child is no longer an immediate.

"Don't don't getting a seven the big debate in mexico right now and it looks like that the martino won't play with kind of to out and out striker. This is it the historical score four or is not meant as the guy should now be the top number night between those two even everything you know about how mexico likes to play. Would you really i think would he many because i think right now in his career he's coming into his prime. You're seeing the very best of him and he gives you flexibility. He gives you something different from the mexican national. It does give you hold play which they don't usually look for. Him is okay well so he's just going to hold on. We're going to run them but it's that they mentioned on the game that teach us inqui- why give you and so you may be using. Maybe you don't but it gives you flexibility in the attack and he's a guy that is not he is willing to run from into out. He's willing to run in behind he he can get up for headers he can he can win the physical battle to jedi the load good things and has done a lot of great things for mexico and dan you can see his movement inside eighteen bucks how he frees himself up for that finish of the cross by take over on the right now if we consider where they are in their careers his role humaneness seems to be the guy that should be given the opportunity to be the number one striker good problem to have. I got some good news for you by the way let me tell you. Berhalter coulter doesn't have that problem. Here's another problem. He has another growth but not that problem you see we're whereas who pig pig pig. He doesn't have that he's israeli. Josie don't know what i'm doing. That's scary to absolutely the good news for us.

"You're in that locker urine the preparation for this game you are by definition if not certainly by age but by definition because of your stature as a player. You are one of the leaders in this team. You are reference point so maybe don't leave it until after the game to tell me how you guys play with fear but do something before it happens and address it before it happens because then it's too late. It's too late it's too. It's too late for the gold cup. It's too late for this game and it'll be too late as a distaste. Come by between u._s. and mexico. I just find that it's a reaction that it's is probably one that you would expect if you think of looking for reasons as to why didn't go well and maybe he doesn't see us an excuse. Maybe he's issue simply stayed in the fact that he senses that the team has fear playing mexico and if that's the case if that's indeed the truth then never remind the town this party never mind not play out of the bath. You have a bigger issue at bigger hurdle that you have to get over before you start thinking about playing in the back and and before you start thinking about the talent disparity. I'm very careful to let social media. Tell us where to go in a show but it's overwhelming when you see jesse's artists pop up in the starting lineup the reaction and do you understand why he continues to be called up and not just call up but starting success that he had for gregg berhalter with the columbus ombu screw and but that's a different scenario as a different case. If you're going to be under pressure by mexico then you have to have a player that at the very least is willing to play with his back to goal and hold up play as looks to clear their lines. I'm not sure that justice out of this is that we can say. He's not back right this being run at this point. He's more of a guide that will look to stretch it. A guy that gets the end of things inside eighteen yearbook so if he's not the guy and obviously it's not there then you start looking for options and my guess is that people are not so upset about jesse side of this being in the lineup as much as they are just oh sergeant not being in the lineup. I think you're right and it's not it's not so much a reflection on yes. It's out of this. Hey if this is indeed about developments which is something that gregg berhalter mentioned that they're developing players well what better development for a guy like joe sergeant dan to play against mexico in this scenario so i think the rhetoric and the message that we're getting a one and is different than what we're seeing on the other. The decisions out on the field are not quite matching the rhetoric that we're hearing the press conference. Let's keep it to a striker debate but switched sides to mexico as we check out their player ratings for the match against the united states..

Add what take a detour did to genius desk who outside of christian pulisic has that ability no one well. You go and that's exactly my point. They got they can do that to you and guess what he's not. The only because irregular santa comes off the bench and he destroys morale is out of the midfield goes listen. An individual ron has the ability to deliver a real and do now who comes off the bench finishes the chance so when when i say that there's a talent disparity i'm saying individually individually take a detail on heating and you now you talk about the players that weren't even there for mexico a guy who's consistently consistently scoring goals in the premier early so we're talking about a different level of player across the board so when you compare one four one men men for men outside of christian pulisic who out of that united state team can do some of the things i was doing some of the things that they got they got on. I was doing the the movement off the ball inside eating bugs by teddy. Turn on this who does that.

"The financial times. I'm getting Rochman today, we're looking at US Mexican relations, and the broader context of international trade. The reason for this is President Trump and sudden announcement that he'll impose steadily increasing tariffs on Mexican goods, unless Mexico stops the flow of refugees through its country towards America's southern border. Joining me on the line from Mexico City is our correspondent, Nejib Weber and on the line from Brussels are economics and trade commentator. Alan Beatie, Jude, first of all, how much of a bolt from the blue did this come from Mexico? Did they foresee this now it was a complete surprise? In fact, only foot ninety four the US administration had removed tariffs on steel in aluminium, which has been one of the hurdles to ratifying the new NAFTA pack, the US MCA packs, Mexico had done what it said it was going to do in terms of preparing for ratification by passing some new labor laws. So it was all looking like tariffs were going to be thinking of the past. Then all of a sudden this comes from nowhere. So they were completely blindsided by it. And how are they responding? I'm and ease there, anything they can do they're going to try to piece Donald Trump. They say that they're going to make some proposals. They haven't meeting at the White House chedda by Mike Pence, Pompeo, the foreign secretaries also going to be there. I'm Bob light Heiser, the US trade Representative Mexico as taken a slightly different tack on immigration to pass Mexican government's under president under is Monroe Lopez over they've decided they want to put development. I and to invest in development in the northern triangle, countries Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador so that people who at the moment, the fleeing from poverty, and from crime, basically and dysfunctional government's repression with sort of thing so that they can stay at home, and they don't have to flee, but unfortunately, that's a very, very long term solution. It's not immediate so Mexico once the US to invest in that. But the US wants a much. More immediate solution in terms of more people being turned away at the borders, so we don't get. No, what is going to propose. They have said to me that they willing to work with the US to apply Mexican lose more effectively. But what they don't want is to become a third safe country. That's the sort of jargon from being the country, where migrants have to apply for Silom the first safe country that migrants have to apply for sinema Matt north. So Mexico's drawing the line at that said, there's no way LX at that. And they also won't accept having US border agents on its territory. What am Allah has reportedly said it wouldn't mind beefing up US border personnel on its side of the southern border, but Mexico's said, no. So what's your guests? Do you think this is going to be a long-standing dispute or something, where Mexico can find some kind of compromise? Of course, Donald Trump's on predictable. It's hard to say. But what's currently feel like Bon when negotiating NAFTA? The, the success to after there were, there were several times when Donald Trump was on the brink of writing a letter to withdraw from the agreements, and he was told back from the brink a couple of times, once by his agriculture secretary, for example, who pointed on it just how much damage that would do to states that rely very heavily on agriculture and trade with Mexico. So this foam, and him climbing down from the precipice. There's also for him going ahead with things that people say, there's no justification for, for example, the women still tarps, Mexico and Canada who partners in NAFTA was served with these twenty-five percent tariffs, and Mexico, retaliated. So my guess, at the moment is that, you know, since he's traveling at the moment since the talks today, a going on with other members of the administration, but not the members of the administration who make the decision, the decisions, Roma sleeping made by Donald Trump directly and without too much negotiation with other members of his cabinet money suspicion. Is that at least the? First one will go ahead, and then we'll see. I mean, that's what Donald Trump said in London yesterday. I mean he seems to be leaning towards applying the first one and keeping talking. And then perhaps we'd see a slowdown and not being -cremento tariffs every month through to October on how potentially disruptive this. And how important is the US Mexican economic relationship? The trae between the US and Mexico in itself, isn't going to destroy the economy. The issue here is that you simply contrast, Donald Trump, that, even when you have signed a deal even when you're going through the, the boys purchase a negotiating NAFTA to come up with US MCA nonetheless, he can simply turn tail say, we're going to have completely different unrelated issue, such as migration, you know, there different strains of thought within the Trump administration central gravity like the media is, but lighthizer who's the US TR, who's extremely hard nosed, and has some very strong views about trade. But, you know, it's not sort of eccentric and doesn't randomly suggested slumping on terrorists. Just because something has annoyed him that day. Now when Bob light highs was in charge, or something out. He was the indication of NAFTA, it might be unpleasant, and it might be competent, but Germany gets done. And that is signed, and sealed and legal with something like this, when something like Trump, you all over the place that you have no idea. So essentially everyone has been reminded how much vegetables around US trade policy because everyone has been reminded just wasn't degree of randomness can come from at the top. And of course, this has to be seen in the context of the broader trade wars, that Trump has embarking upon the increase in tariffs to China, and he really is living up to his name of tariff man or self chosen Monica. Yeah. I mean, it does genuinely appear to be the case that he enjoyed tires for their own sake. He apparently genuinely believes cannot be shaken from the belief that's tariff is they fact to eight tax on the trading partner. And the fact that you have imposed on the trading partner means the fact that you have one, now, of course, this has huge implications for those other countries or trading powers at the moment, the EU in Japan who are trying to negotiate bilateral deals with US in order to avoid more times in this case cons being right on the next balls. And they must be thinking, what's the point? What's the point of spending months years, and even to go having to get all on domestic constituencies? Onside having to get the laborious deal of needs to see it overturned on the women. The president and to I mean what is the impact say of the five percent on the Mexican economy and potentially also on American consumers, and then what's the impact of terrorists, do indeed rise steadily? Mexico eighty percent of its exports. Go to the US mostly manufactured goods. And there are very integrated supply chain. So one of the first impacts will be saved the car industry. It's in massive industry in Mexico. So a lot of the car parts crossed the border, multiple times seatbelts example of made and they go to Canada to be died. And then they go somewhere else to become tired, and they come back to Mexico to be stitched. So the crossing the border and back and forth, the Thai food minute, they have to be toxin every crossing. So maybe there would be some convents for those sorts of things, but it could hit the car industry. There are some estimates that suggests that if the tariffs are imposed immediately five percent time, the cost of a car that settled in Mexico, Lexcen, Nissan, Sentra, would go up by fifteen hundred dollars immediately and that could rise to seven thousand five hundred dollars. If the full twenty five percent were applied doesn't the school of thought which suggests that a five percent tariff might. Don't be into the world because actually the exchange rate has adjusted. So the pixel has weakened some exit goes, sort of regaining competitiveness. But I think the general consensus is NAFTA was put in place to provide security in terms of investment predictability insecurity, in this does not completely. So even if the five percent is imposed and then maybe ten percent isn't imposed or five and ten percent of impose, but maybe fifteen cents isn't she still don't know. You've got that sort of sold hunting of you that you don't know what's gonna happen next. So I think it's very, very damaging to the trade relationship, and it could be extremely damaging for both countries economy's in recession, and lack of growth, none of this will help Mexico, which is already struggling in the first quarter economy. Contracted. Jude says potentially this has real deleterious effects on the real economy, but I suppose, maybe Trump has been emboldened by the fact that for the moment, the American economy is growing quite strongly the markets on doing that badly. Kenny take that for granted, there is this likely do you think in the end to feed through reasonably falls into those metrics? He will be paying attention to growth in the stock exchange Well, thinking. the thing is, I mean, if you look at the global economy can take these shock to actual cost border trade without plunging the whole world into recession. More of a concern is the idea that policies completes even them there's a lunatic, and charged with the us economy, and anything could happen in the markets will suddenly started pointing any huge amount, more one of the things, so the markets seem to be taken by surprise each time. Something like this happened quite a big selloff inequities. We suggest that they haven't yet priced in that much risk. So that's a potential channel to which could happen. Uncertainty Jay Powell on the fed Chan said recently that the prospects of a trade dispute could weaken the economy. But you know that's what we've seen so far. We haven't seen a huge amount comes through on the real economy because these things take time to come through. So you see a lot more sort of movement on the markets and short-term things. Dan, you do see a slowing of growth. So it depends what Donald Trump is looking at, you know, supposedly, he's obsessed with the market, supposedly, he's obsessed with the S and P. But it does. Doesn't stop him doing things like this, which damaging to the S and P. So it may be that one day he looks at the and in one day, he doesn't one of the things I think we've learned over the last two years, is that it's very hard. In fact, is impossible to discern a constant reaction, folks knew a constant way, Donald Trump responds to things, you know, he seems to care about different things at different times. So I think if the US went into a really serious recession. Yes, he might ease off on the trade from to bid. But it's one of the things that send you compared to any other administration. No. In many parents in history is extremely Huntington know. Okay, so we'll expect the unexpected. But for now, we'll have to leave it there, sir. Thank you very much detail, and BC and to do Weber. That's it for this week until next week. Goodbye..

"But he does not expect like the full Emo vision to come like next week. So he's doing things. And so they talk about you know, how when he was mayor Mexico City. He led this huge revitalization of the central city. And is basically the reason why Mexico City has become a big tourist destination in the way that Cancun and other places had had long been now lots of. Visit Mexico City and that a ton of the money for this was put up by Carlos slim, ultimately, you know, not like a long-term ideological ally of his, but a businessman who could benefit from this thing that he wanted to do and he needed money four and he worked with the central government. That was run by conservatives of the time that he brought in Rudy Giuliani to be like his security consultant while this was happening. Not because they really wanted Rudy Giuliani's advice to the Mexico City police, but because they wanted to make Americans feel like something was happening that was making Mexico City safe wanted to invest in building hotels and come visit. And that. I think it's not a crazy idea. Right. Like what what do white people in America think will make a city safe Rudy Giuliani? Right. And so like, that's what you do. Right. He wasn't like really hung up on the peculiarities of it. It wasn't even it wasn't an ideological thing for him either way. Right. It was something. He was perfectly willing to do to get to what he actually want. And so that very much suggests that if he can get some giant check to deliver development assistance to southern Mexico. Like, yeah. Like he would do a lot right to get a giant check of money. Right. That like every Mexican politician promises that they will do something, but the systematic underdevelopment of southern Mexico, and they don't know they don't have any ideas for how to do this like a ton of American money like that that would help right. And so if you can get that by instead of Mexico paying for a border wall like Mexico puts people intensity indefinitely in the United States pays for an unrelated economic development project. Great, right. Of course, the questions are there. Lots of questions about this on the US side..
