Fresh "migration policy institute" from BBC World Service
"Past the hour. We go talk how to make money out of East sports. Okay, we'll start by telling you what the sports are. I didn't know. Andre. Also, we've got the sport on the business and the business of closing borders. How good borders are at tamping down on covert infections. If you close the borders is it automatically one of the strongest things you can use to fight the virus? But we're gonna talk about migration now and the thousands of migrants who are trying to walk thousands of miles north From Honduras to the U. S border with Mexico. It's the latest so called caravan hoping for more generous migration policy. When they arrived from a new Biden administration, the caravan has actually been stopped much, much earlier, much further south by Guatemalan soldiers. Using pretty strong tactics, teargas roadblocks. I've been speaking about the situation of the migrants with Ariel Ruiz, who was a policy analyst at the Migration Policy Institute in California. That's where he's based on together, asking if the timing of this caravan was in any way related to the change in U. S administration. Some of the members participate in the caravan know that the immigration is coming up in United States and see the bite administration as one that is more open to try to allow a cell implications to be heard and entered in the states, however, for the vast majority of the migrants that are in the part of the caravan, the circumstances have just gone to the level that has forced him to leave the country. You've heard about the hurricanes that occurred in the dress and Guatemala and you've heard about the On their very negative impacts of coveting and under is some poverty increasing that really have been propelling migrants to leave the country. So for many of them, it is a matter of the intersection of factors. But for some, surely they will leave and hope that the bite administration upon its immigration will be more welcoming of migrants than the previous administration of President Trump. How much hope can they be leaving in Because so, so much of the moment, the story is how they're being pushed back by Security forces. So every frontier is a challenge. But also is there a great deal of success in previous caravans to inspire them or not? They are relying on an idea that the governments of each of the region's we're going to see their rationale for coming to the country meaningful in poverty, violence, most cases But the latest example we saw the caravans was in October 2020 when a similar cabin from endures, tried to enter Guatemala and was abruptly the pain and returned in majority to Honduras. If this crane cabin were actually to succeed in making it to the water, my like Mexico border, I highly suspect that the Mexican authorities are going to prevent the vast majority in tow entreaty to enter the country and therefore very few of them actually will, in the end, make it to the US Mexico border. Where they can have a chance to seek asylum. Aerial Ruiz at the migration Policy Institute in California This is news day coming up to 17 minutes past the hour. We're talking East sports and big money in about 10, Minutes time, but first proper sports without Ross, How do you not know how East forces in 2021 kind of do? But I prefer to prioritize the proper support the one that plays in the real world. Well, yeah, but how Okay, I would say the East bolts and spools of both sports just different types. If dance is a sport, he sports is a sport. So don't start me on dance. Anyway. Gone, Start the sports, All right, that's not with football, which we agree. Is a sport Pierre Emerick, a balmy and scoring on his 4th and 5th Premier league goals off the season was Arsenal beat Newcastle three mil to move back into the top half off the table.

The Nairobi born British writer Going to ride for the Israel startup nation team this season, having recovered from multiple fractures he suffered in a horror crash two years ago thanks to help more sport throughout the program. Yes. On East sports on the way we will all be educated. Let's talk business news now. Andrew Wood is joining us live from the BBC's business desk in Hong Kong. Now, Andrew Shortages of key parts we're talking about this earlier mean carmakers are having problems in producing Vehicles. It's not wheels or steering wheels. Gearbox is in short supply its computer chips, and it's this down to the to the pandemic again. It is and actually partly because of a rise in things like well East sports because during the pandemic sails off mobile phones of pads on also especially of computer games have surged. Now they use silicon chips. There aren't that many companies that make silicon chips so there's enormous demand there. The silicon chip makers themselves have you know their own issues about production during coronavirus? And of course, cars now are here. They're not just mechanical things. They are increasingly computers on wheels. You need silicon chips to things like just something like operate the entertainment system. Increasingly is with cars have things like, you know, Radar lied are you know they need to monitor how the how the engine is performing, and so on. They have more and more computer chips. I think, as one statistic I read recently was that the average car now has so many computers in it that the software that's needed to run all those computers is about 100 million lines long. So it gives you an idea how complicated computers are cars are on so companies out the latest one. I think he's out. It's saying that is going to make to 10,000 fewer cars in the first three months of this year because it can't get enough of these computer chips. On. So we know why they can't get enough. What? Why their supply problems? Is it simply not enough people to make them because of the pandemic Has people are getting ill Or is it getting them into certain territories? What's going on? There is a problem that sometimes these chips are specialized, and so there are very few places that will make them on. I mean some of these companies, the chip makers are prioritizing Maura, lucrative and easier to easier to supply contracts now. So that's why and we're talking about probably 6 to 9 months before some people in the industry is saying before things return to normal against, that's an awful lot of cars that won't be made on won't be sold, and I'm a sex thing back to reality. There. They reckon that they're gonna have to put 10,000 workers on furlough. Because of this short your computer ships mean they can't make enough cars. Andrew for now, Thank you on our business desk in Hong Kong. Now let's talk more about covert the pandemic. We were talking earlier about Long Cove it let's talk about not so much the disease itself, but the measures to try to control it. Australia says it may not reopen its borders fully this year 2021. That's what the head of the health Department said in an interview out throughout the pandemic. And right now many countries have bean shutting borders or at least restricting entry to borders to prevent the spread of the virus. But does it actually have as big A nif effect is intuitively you think it might do? A professor Mark Object of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine has been looking at this issue specifically.
Biden Pledges To Dismantle Trump's Sweeping Immigration Changes — But Can He Do That?
"Joe Biden has pledged if he becomes president to dismantle the sweeping changes that President Trump has made to the US immigration system but could buy Don't do that. As NPR's John Burnett reports. It's easier said than done. People most closely watching to see if Biden defeats Trump and reverses. His immigration crackdown may be beyond our borders. Some 700 migrants languish in filthy tents pitched in a public park amid mud. Maps and clouds of mosquitoes. The encampment is in Matamoros, just across the Rio Grande from Brownsville, Texas. They're seeking asylum in the U. S. But stuck here under a Trump initiative known as remain in Mexico while they wait there closely following US presidential race, says Carlo Garcia, an asylum seeker from Honduras. They buy the place our hope in Joe Biden, who's the Democratic nominee because he would shoot the immigrants very differently than Trump has. We hope he will. And change is all of this Trump has created. This is discrimination and racism. Trump is touting that program's success here He is at a rally in Yuma, Arizona. Last tough. We don't want him here. We want him outside. We got sued all over the place. There. We won. So now they don't come into the United States taken Wait out. While the president claims to have restored a broken immigration system, human rights advocates are appalled that what they call the cruelty of his policies. Oh, Marge. Odd. Watt is director of the L Use Immigrants rights project. What the administration has sought to do is to simply turn off immigration and to do it unilaterally. By presidential edict without the approval of Congress. That project should be reversed. And that's exactly what Joe Biden pledges to do. His position paper on Immigration 51 bullet points over 22 pages seeks to roll back Trump's accomplishments and reenact Obama era policies. If I'm elected president, we're going to immediately and Trump's sold on dignity. Immigrant communities restore our moral state in the world are our historic rolls a safe haven for refugees and asylum seekers. Biden says no more border wall no more separating immigrant families, no more prolonged detentions or deportations of peaceable migrant workers. He would restore the asylum system and create a roadmap to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. It's a long to do list. I don't think it's realistic that Biden in four years could enroll everything that trump dead. Sarah Pierce and another analyst that the Migration Policy Institute, a nonpartisan thinktank recently catalog more than 400 executive actions Trump has taken on immigration. From heavier border and interior enforcement to restricting asylum to slashing refugee visas to creating remain in Mexico because of the intense volume and pace of change is the Trump administration enacted while in office. Even if we have a new administration, Trump will continue. Tio have had an impact on immigration for years to come. But Biden faces a host of obstacles that could slow his immigration counter revolution. First, there's the specter of renewed chaos at the southern border last year groups as large as 1000 Central Americans at a time. We're waiting across the Rio Grande into El Paso to request asylum. The Border Patrol was overwhelmed and ended up detaining families in primitive, unsanitary conditions. And no one wants a repeat of that. Ron Vitello, former deputy commissioner of customs and Border protection, worries that Biden will cancel bilateral agreements with Mexico that have dramatically slowed the migrant flow right now decided that they weren't going to continue to help us. You know, people would start coming through like we saw the caravans two springs ago. There's no reason that it wouldn't come back as fast as it Wass. NPR asked a senior advisor to the Biden campaign. What would happen if the new president gave migrants of Green light? The adviser said. They're cognizant of the pull factor. Then there's the issue of the enforcers. Immigration agents have enjoyed extraordinary support from the White House, the Trump administration has bragged about unshackling them to let them do their jobs more aggressively. What happens if Joe Biden tries to put the shackles back on? That isn't something that the lights which you can't change culture within an organization that best overnight. Angela Kelly is a senior advisor to the American Immigration Lawyers Association. So I agree that it's going to be a long long road. A Biden presidency would also find itself skirmishing with conservative lawyers over its reversals. The way Trump has been tied up in federal court fighting the R. J. Hamann is with the Federation for American Immigration Reform. If Biden is elected, and his administration starts rescinding executive actions that Trump had firm legal authority to Dio groups like us will sue. That is a fact. Finally, there's the Pandemic and NPR Ipsos poll showed a majority of Americans support Trump's decision to shut the borders to all types of immigrants to stop the spread of the Corona virus. Biden has not said if he would reverse that order. So it's anybody's guess when the virus will subside and the nation can welcome immigrants again. John Burnett NPR news

Inside the Cell Where a Sick 16-Year-Old Boy Died in Border Patrol Care
"It's hard to see the stated commitment of customs and border protection to the health and safety of locked up immigrants when you watch the video of a sixteen year old boys suffering through the final hours of his life before he slips to the ground and dies alone in his cell it's really important to address the needs for vaccinations for children and for others were arriving at the border what upsets the migration policy institute Martin Greenberg is that even though the CDC has urged customs and border protection to vaccinate these children who are locked together and cold crowded detention facility is the perfect breeding ground for communicable disease CBP has refused to even though doctors of offered free vaccines only to be arrested for protesting when their office to refute customs and border protection and say their job is just a holding facility and they don't have other responsibilities to the children beyond that but with the numbers of families and children are riding their mission has to be broader than that Rebecca chorale
Two Trump policies take aim at immigration
"The trump administration is taking another dramatic step this time focusing on legal immigration in the United States an immigrant who has used Medicaid or food stamps or other public benefits could soon be denied a chance at legal permanent residency or US citizenship and pure white house correspondent Franco or doing as reports the trump administration is making it harder for immigrants who want to obtain legal permanent residency Ken Cuccinelli the acting director for US citizenship and immigration services says it's time to update the long established rules to ensure those coming to United States are not a burden to the US taxpayer what we're looking for here are people who are going to live with us either their whole lives or ultimately become citizens who can stand on their own two feet with the same sort of requirements that we've had in the past for well over a century federal law has long required those seeking green cards and legal status to prove they will not be a burden to the U. S. but the new rules dramatically expand the reasons to potentially deny someone legal permanent residency such as if an immigrant use Medicaid or housing vouchers the administration will also consider applicants English skills income and health supporters see it as a smart more future looking approach to immigration they say will incentivize newcomers and save taxpayers billions of dollars this is RJ how men the government relations director affair which advocates for tightening immigration controls these people weren't objectively assessed on their self reliance but rather their bloodline against a lot of these people coming in without a an economic reason an employment opportunity the recipe for financial disaster they're gonna cost this absolute billions of dollars for an administration has focused much of its political capital on fighting illegal immigration this is one of the most aggressive crackdown on legal immigration immigration advocates say the rules are already having a chilling effect on immigrant and Latino communities and could lead to some not seeking medical care or other benefits including for the U. S. citizen children some Latinos are already feeling under attack by the president's heated rhetoric and cracked down on immigration those feelings have been heightened after the mass shooting in el Paso and subsequent immigration rates in Mississippi each of which targeted largely Latino an immigrant communities of Mexican and central American descent Cuccinelli said there's no reason for any group to feel like this is targeting them if we'd been having this conversation a hundred years ago it would have applied to more Italians but even before these events concerns were high a two thousand eighteen pew center poll found that two thirds of Latinos felt their situation had deteriorated under the trump administration the rule is expected to be challenged and legal experts like Leon fresco a former Deputy Assistant Attorney generally a bomb administration said it could end up in the U. S. Supreme Court I also expect lawsuits from individuals who say that at the end of the day if Congress provided certain benefits to be acceptable by certain groups of immigrants that meant that they did not want them banned banned under the public charge rule the rule does not apply to refugees assignees in trafficking victims it also excludes active duty servicemembers their spouses and children Franco or Dona as NPR news the White House all right we just heard a lot about changes to rules for which immigrants can qualify for legal residency or citizenship it hinges on an old term called public charge those are people who are considered at risk of becoming a burden on US taxpayers federal immigration law has taken that into account for a long time and now that the trump administration is expanding who gets counted as a public charge we're gonna spend the next few minutes digging into the impact of that change Randy caps is director of research at the migration policy institute welcome thank you so much for having me on no I understand you have crunched the numbers like on how many people are likely to be impacted by this policy how many more people do you think will now be considered a public charge compared to before well it all depends on how they use this new cast that they're implementing about who's likely to use public benefits in the future they list a bunch of different things that could be considered against people when they're applying for green cards and we looked at some of these things like not being able to speak English well not having a high school to three not working not having health insurance coverage and sixty nine percent of recent green card holders in the country we estimate had one of these negative things forty three percent have two negative things and seventeen percent had three negative things so it really depends on how many things basically have to count against someone before their disqualified from getting a green card so it sounds like it's still pretty squishy I mean that there's still a lot of room for discretion when a government official is trying to decide if someone is a public charge or not yes there's a lot of discretion in it the rule is very dense it's over a hundred pages is very detailed at the same time it's really vague because it's basically up to the individual officer is it they say in the rule to weigh the circumstances in totality so it does leave officers a lot of discretion now we've heard a lot about illegal immigration from this administration but this whole public charge topic is about legal immigration so how does this latest change it into the trump administration's broader efforts to reform legal immigration to the US the trump administration has repeatedly asked Congress to pass a law that would restrict legal immigration narrowing it to people who have a higher level of education certain skills English ability what they term merit having more merit would be the main thing that would get people into the country with a green card not family ties and some of the other things in current US immigration law this rule kind of accomplishes the same thing by back door it's using that same kind of merit definition that someone has to have a certain level of education a certain income or assets English proficiency in all these other factors in order to get into the country legally so it really is aimed at restricting legal immigration how do you see this new rule affecting how much people might be willing to apply for benefits going forward now and it's like food stamps or Medicaid well we've already seen evidence in surveys that haven't been done nationally and stories in some cities across the country that people have are stopping using benefits are not applying for that we've seen withdraws not just from programs like food stamps and Medicaid that are listed in the role but also other programs that aren't like women infants children benefits and free lunches in schools what people are finding is that immigrants are scared they're worried they don't understand what this rule is or what it's going to be and it's being implemented in a context of a lot of other attacks on immigrant population and already we're hearing stories as high as fifteen or twenty percent of immigrants may be withdrawing from the benefits that they are eligible for Randy caps of the migration policy institute thank you very much for joining us today thanks
"migration policy institute" Discussed on KQED Radio
"And by the listeners members and sustaining members of public radio. From NPR news. It's all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish. And Mary Louise Kelley here in Washington. Congressional Republicans and Democrats are seeing if they can rescue talks on border security, and maybe just maybe reach a bipartisan deal, President Trump is making his case for border wall directly to voters tonight at a rally in El Paso, Texas, a city where Trump got just over a quarter of the votes cast in the two thousand sixteen election to learn how people in El Paso, are viewing the president's. Visit. Let's bring in Dallas Morning News reporter, Alfreido Corrado. He's an El Paso and himself, and he joins us from there. Hey, they're afraid. Oh, hey, Mary. Great to have you with us. What's the vibe there in El Paso ahead of the rally tonight? Well, people are usually excited about a presidential is that I don't think excitement is the word that I will use for tonight's. Visit by President Trump people are still angry, and they're downright insulted that the president would use this community to try to make a point try to make his case at a wall is needed to keep a city safe. He said state of the union that was one of the most dangerous cities had been until they started building barriers that hasn't been the case that that's been the case historically Paso was and remains a safe city. Right. You're talking about the state of the union address last week he did refer to extremely high rates of violent crime. He said in El Paso before fencing went up a decade or so ago, and then he said after the fencing was put in place that crime came down. You said that's made people in El Paso mad. What what are the facts in terms of the crime rate and any related? That we can parse with with a barrier being put in place. According to FBI tracking data El Paso has ranked among the safest Vinci's of its size even before or after nine eleven that's when President Bush began these secure fence project along the border, in fact, after the fence went up beginning in two thousand six to two thousand eleven crime rates in the city actually increased by seventeen percent. Percent increase by seventeen percent that linked to the area or do. We know. And it's not clear yet. Doing that part of that period. We also some of the most biggest violence and on the Mexican side of the border and another Mexican border communities, but it's not clear. Whether there was there was a tie. There was a correlation between the two that's something that that we continue to explore bottom line. You're saying people in El Paso believe their city is safe and do not believe they need a big wall to make it safer is that correct? That's correct. Paso sees themselves as safe, and they they they hope to take back their narrative by demonstrating that the city is civil tolerant is safe. And it's a message that they hope that gets across. So what kind of crowd is expected for the rally tonight? Or are there signs that there may be any protests or counter protests coming together? Well, the El Paso county Coliseum holds up to about six thousand people and what we've been toes at all. Because I've been issues so they expect a good cry. Which is not really surprising me. I think there's gonna be a lot of supporters. There's a lot of curiosity foul passengers. I mean, it's not every day that a president comes to a Paso, but there's gonna be thousands of people expected for what they call eight March of truth a rally that's going to be led by El Paso native and former congressman Bechtol Rourke who will make as return to the national spotlight as a potential challenger to Trump and twenty twenty. I assume it's not a coincidence that this is timed, Freddie, very same evening as the president's. I don't think it's a coincidence. Split screen kind of evening unfolding tonight in El Paso, Alfredo course, shadow reporter for the Dallas Morning News. Thanks for for joining us. Thank you very much. Aside from the border wall. There's another sticking point in the negotiations between the Trump administration and Democrats to avoid another partial government shutdown a cap on the number of detention beds for immigrants picked up inside the US now Democrats want a limit of sixteen thousand five hundred beds, which they say was the number of interior detentions in the final months of the Obama administration now to help explain this idea we're joined in studio by Randy caps is with the migration policy institute. A nonpartisan think tank that's been monitoring the Trump administration's immigration policies. Welcome to the program. Thanks for having me on. So just to be clear. This proposal from Democrats would limit the number of beds for people arrested within the interior of the US. Right. Not those who have just crossed the border. That's right. I mean, as it is now, we know that there's a generally congressionally appropriate amount for total detention beds. But there's no limit on how much of that supposed to be for border arrests versus interior. So how many people right now? Now is the top administration holding you right now, the total number of people in detention is about forty nine thousand this is up almost fifty percent from an average day of thirty four thousand at the end of the Obama administration. This total of forty nine thousand includes people who are picked up at the border as well as those who were arrested by ice inside the United States, the latest number for those arrested inside the United States held in detention is twenty one thousand so what is the goal of putting a limited politically policy wise. Why would a Democrats be pushing for this? Well, politically, of course, it's a off that the Democrats want to have something in exchange for appropriating more money for the wall policy-wise, it's an attempt to go back to the end of the Obama administration. When there were clear priorities for who should be arrested detained and deported. It should be people with serious criminal convictions or people who recently entered the. United states. So what do you mean by priorities? What's happened now under the Trump administration? Well, the Trump administration really is one of their first acts in the first week of the new administration issued an executive order saying that anyone who's convicted of any crime charged with any crime even having committed a crime, but not vignette charged or perceived to be a public safety threat was a priority for deportation. And that was later interpreted to mean, everyone in the unauthorized immigrant population is subject to arrest and detention till it cast a much wider net and Democrats are now trying to to limit this. Right. Well with fewer detention beds available then it's incumbent on ice to make choices right? Is this person really the top priority for that detention bed or does need to be used at the border. Or is this a person that could be released because they're not a public safety threat. I mean, another thing that the Trump administration did was they also decided once they are. Arrest people that they will always keep them in detention or almost always if they have the capacity until they get deported, while Obama administration was more likely to release people with ankle monitoring bracelets are other devices. What are you going to be listening for next out of this debate? That will give us some signals about where it's going. Well, it'll be interesting to see whether or not they talk about the total number of detention beds as opposed to just those that are used for people arrested in the interior, and what they're gonna do about the fact that the Trump administration's now detaining nine thousand people more than they're authorized to do so that may become part of the negotiations as well. I'll also be listening to see whether there are other constraints imposed on ice by the Democratic Congress besides the detention beds. Randy caps is director of research for US programs at the migration policy institute. Thanks for coming in. Thanks for having me on. You're listening to.
"migration policy institute" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM
"A new for. But you know, there was about coming today. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell announced a short term funding deal without any of that money. Trump is demanding we need the government to remain open for the American people. We need to wrap up our work for this year. So what happens now NPR's congressional correspondent Scott true joins us from Capitol Hill. Hey there Scott. Hey there. So for context what exactly was gonna shut down. If there were shut down, which I guess it's now looking like, there won't be a shutdown more theoretical at this point is just a quarter of the federal government. But that included some important parts the department of Justice and homeland security. It did include the National Park Service, which of course, is always one of the most high profile casualties of shutdown even though probably not as much camping planned for late December. As if this were midsummer and help me get my head around what just unfolded because as we heard the president said he was gonna shut down the government unless he got his five billion dollars for a border wall. This deal does not include five billion dollars for a border wall. What happened? Well, it looks like President Trump back down. There was a real sense of frustration even apathy from lawmakers from both parties this week. Just a lot of standing around. Waiting for the White House to decide what it would or would not accept in a funding deal. Trump's press secretary Sarah Sanders, had laid the groundwork for softening some of President Trump's ultimatum earlier this week saying the White House could always use money from elsewhere in the government to build a wall, Democrats pointed out that's not how things work that congress is the one that appropriate. How money is spent and the bottom line here is neither side in congress wanted to shut down, and they have made a deal here. They've agreed to a Bill funding the government through early February. And it does not have that five billion dollars. It does not. So might the last laugh be the president says is he definitely going to sign this Bill while the White House is remaining a bit cryptic as of right now. White House counselor Kellyanne Conway talked NPR earlier today, and she sounded pretty frustrated the first former questions, why does congress always take the path at least resistance, and this is the Republican led congress that why are you just going for the short term funding through the CR not tackling the bigger issues immigration reform border security. The president is looking at this, and I will allow him to make announcements on whether he signing it or when he signs it so unclear there, but but the fact is that Mitch McConnell will not have introduced this and set the process of a vote on it unless he had got an indication for the White House, the president would sign this Bill still we know this is the president who likes to change his mind at the last minute and some hard-line conservatives like Mark meadows are urging him to veto this assuming all does go to plan to Mitch McConnell's plan and the president does sign that would push us into February. Right. When Democrats will control the house, so is the president ever going to see this five billion dollars that he wants. It's really hard to see how he ever gets it at this point. He has repeatedly not gotten it'd points that that government funding is run out when Republicans have controlled all branches of government with Democrats take charge in January of the house. It's really hard to see them giving him anything more than they have right now when it comes to funding for border security already. Thanks. He's got. Thank you NPR's, Scott detro-, well, as congress has worked toward a deal to keep the government open. President Trump has continued to make a hard sell for his border wall. He tweeted just last night that it will be beautiful and that it will save the country billions of dollars per month. Once it's completed that is on top of data. He presented during the explosive meeting. He had with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer last week San Diego illegal traffic dropped ninety two percent. Once the wall was up El Paso illegal traffic, dropped seventy two percent. And ultimately ninety five percent wants the wall was up in Tucson, Arizona. Illegal traffic drop ninety two percent. The democratic leaders contested those numbers on the spot and afterwards. Pelosi had this to say I didn't want to in front of those people say, you don't know what you're talking. Well, we have brought in an expert to help fact check the president's claims, Doris Meissner is a senior fellow with the migration policy institute. She was also Commissioner of the US immigration and Naturalization Service during the Clinton administration. Welcome. Thank you. Glad to be with you. So what do you make of the president's numbers that you just heard well, he's using very high numbers? But it's also the case that as border enforcement has increased and as investments have been made the numbers in those locations certainly went down, but they went down and the the pretensions went down because of abroad combination of enforcement measures that were put in place over time. The important thing about fencing and barriers is that fencing and barriers are the single most expensive investment in that menu of things. And so. It needs to be used sparingly, and it needs to be used in combination with people and all of the other technologies when you were heading INS you oversaw the installation of border fencing as expensive as it was what convinced you that. That would be a good use of resources. Let's talk about the merits of more fence. Yes. The merits are strong and the merits have proven to be valid where fencing is important is where there are heavily populated areas on both sides of the border that basically touch each other people go back and forth regularly for economic reasons shopping and so forth, but also to go to school also to work, however, that makes the border porous. And so what you wanna do with fencing is have fencing exist in a way that channels the movement across the border through legal ports of entry. And then. Redirects the crossings that would be unauthorized crossings to the outskirts where enforcement personnel have the upper hand because they can see what's happening, and they can then stop crossings that are not authorized. So you have mentioned that building more fencing building more walls, if you will would be expensive the president on the other hand is saying that it would bring cost savings billions of dollars a month. What do you think have parts of the wall that already exists now proven to be cost saving despite the initial high cost of building that fencing? I'm not sure that I would say cost saving. I think that it's been shown and that we know that fencing is a good investment where it makes sense to use it. But it's also true that fencing requires a lot of maintenance the maintenance for fencing is expensive ongoing carrying cost an across the board fencing plan. For the southwest border is overkill. It's not needed much of the border is very remote very rural. You can deal with those parts of the border with aircraft with sensors with lighting with tracking measures of one sort or another in a much more cost effective way. You think those measures would give more bang for the buck, then more fencing? That's exactly what I think. Yes. Doris Meissner is director of the US immigration policy program at the migration policy institute. Thank you very much. Thank you..
