3:31 pm
families in limbo and contributing to chaos and our nation's southern border and again this isn't simply a republican immigration nationalism or america 1st idiology problem for their part haitian migrants refugees and those actively seeking legal status in america have been fighting since the ninety's when then president clinton and leading democrats failed to provide equity in protecting them some of that just might be changing the department of homeland security announced this week that the agency is reviewing temporary protected status t.p.s. for haitians cameroonians in mauritania. but getting to this point wasn't easy douglas rivlin director of communications for america's voice had just the union message for president biden saying quote despite haiti's fragile conditions the biden administration has been actively deporting people back to haiti since they took office the administration needs to act and act fast in reviewing country
3:32 pm
conditions and used t.p.s. what it was created to do protect immigrates from deport ation and help stabilize economies ruminants nearly 500 advocates non-profits they sent letters to the white house asking biden to read designate t.p.s. living in the us and population growth in america well it's on a downswing economists believe that population growth fuels will be countries but with the u.s. growing by just 7.4 percent over the last decade things aren't looking too good shrinking tax bases make it harder to support services like schools and bio infrastructure but there is a silver lining immigration it can serve as a buffer for us population decline in over the next decade is believed to be the primary driver of population growth in the us america needs immigrants as much or even more so than immigrants need america it's time we start watching the hawks . he wants one
3:33 pm
a city. or so you. see this is the only state. race plays this sleaze systemic deception is please show. some real. welcome everybody to watch in the hawks i mean i really was on vacation joining me now is al gore jr attorney with the american immigration lawyers association good to see you again alan. thank you so much for having me. well alan i know anybody who watches your social media knows you've been a strong voice in advocacy for haitian migrants and you're trying to help american lawmakers understand the dire circumstances they face just last week 4000 haitian migrants arrived in mexico to shelters or pool and they're being forced to sleep in the streets here in the u.s. haitian migrants continue to be deported despite the ship and presidential
3:34 pm
administrations and they aren't receiving the media attention central and south american migrants are even though their situations are no less dire can you can sexualize for our audience what d.h. s. considering to be protected status for haiti actually means and what the next step for agot advocates actually is. so it's really just about equity because we've already done t.v.'s for many of the southern states in south america and we also should think of haiti as part of that south america region basically because they're actually closer and other the mexico they're closer than some other countries and they've had many of the same conditions that have led to this t.p.s. and right now the government there's a politically unstable and that's the main issue that we're talking about an unstable government where they're not exactly sure who the leadership is in there has been little or no coherent that seems available to that out and you've got the current government turned down u.s. aid which kind of shows you the direction in which the current leadership of that out is going and so what it would mean for individual that the u.s. would stop deporting people to
3:35 pm
a place where they're sure we're going to die either because of coke it or because the instability of the government if you can search any day on twitter and see the number of people who are dying in the streets they are either from or dying actually at the hands of the current government and so there's until the stability that's exactly what c.p.s. was there for in haiti out of the group of people who are currently in g.p.s. at the smallest number small class of people actually d.p.s. is the newest group to be assigned t.p.s. and it was the one that was given away shortly and the issue is this isn't something that takes congress this isn't something that even take the white house. secretary markets could do this tomorrow and just designate the t.p.s. which will give a reprieve to people to say right now we're just not the port of you doesn't give you or legalising stabilize your status but it means right now if you don't have the patience you can apply for work permit which many of these individuals need and we have jobs that you will be so sure his number cannot grow this week and we can
3:36 pm
start addressing humanely but across the board no matter where you're talking about people who are from africa from the caribbean or from from africa to continent you're treated worse than immigration proceedings anyone else consistently meeting the hardships that we're having with the diversity visa right now the number of deportations that you have seen all the crimes that you see in deportation centers there really hasn't been a clear class on exactly which of those children were separated and exactly which countries are prone that you've heard so far from central america but we don't know the other class their actual very 1st class of separation was a black and so those issues are part of the racial equality this country must face and made immigration part of the conversation about how we're going to do this justly process and some of our regard to someone's race or color or ethnicity and alan is you so eloquently pointed out it seems like the equity land is failing and multiple areas including on the immigration front we know that the media leaves out migrants like those from haiti cameroon and other nations why do you think that is
3:37 pm
and we've seen movement from haitian celebrities civil rights groups and activists on this front particularly lobbying the biden administration what is on the horizon and can these haitian migrants be hopeful. yeah so i don't know what i mean other than just i mean i thank you the 2nd national network has actually covered a story with this level of death so i don't know what is turning people in the story because it's a minute here issue and it's about the united states and our continent and right now it's actually haitian heritage month so that's another reason that we just sort of miss it i don't know why the news doesn't cover it because every day the only planes that are leaving are those are going to african nations. so that should send a message to say why are we just supporting black people or people who are of african descent and just a touch of the link we're deporting people who are we to the people who actually work in this country and help build this country for free and here if you can link their way back so i think there is a stronger equity argument based on the foundation of this country why we should be
3:38 pm
more considerate of people from the african continent or people about the caribbean . that we were having this conversation in general about just racial reform in this country but when they're the only ones that are being deported that's a problem and when you look at numbers as you see that are being deported in their children that are being deported right now it's unconstitutional because you're deporting them to a place that doesn't have a stable government so they can receive them and as soon i think yesterday there was a white 32 people that were supposed to be deported to haiti might have i don't have confirmation yet but that should stop enough people should you know or so i don't know part of what congress is doing now is this you know until the midterm. republicans have been clear that they don't want to work with democratic party and they just want to talk about immigration and it's time to stop talking about immigration as if it's one thing and realize that these are people and push these policies through that we've been talking about 10 years and really quickly alan because we have to let you go what do you think or what do you think is going to
3:39 pm
come out of we seen the reports we've seen the census data on the declining population for americans huge part of that is also looking towards immigration to actually funnel some some population growth across this country what do you think that means for public policy. i've been used to struggle i think there is a concern about the time comes and also the browning of america and that some people will say you choose to just go relation and repopulate ourselves with these different ethnicities you know it's also asian american heritage month so also have the same local stress. as we always have based on skin color as far as purchasing immigration so you know the time to realize there are many people were american we all are and it's nothing to be a strong nation we need to start thinking of our currency because we have the lowest level of income immigrants in europe nations because they compare ourselves to thank you so much for coming on and once again informing our audience alan or jr it's going to be great to have you again once
3:40 pm
a little more thank you so much. the olympics bring together the most talented athletes from across the globe it's a true showcase of achievement ability and love of country the 2020 summer olympics were postponed due to cope at 19 but now we're just 80 days out from the event in tokyo though there won't be any international fans and athletes are required to take and pass a series of public $1000.00 nasal test there is one a technical change the international olympic committee is banning black lives matter here the slogan cannot be worn on any athlete apparel according to the i.o.c. 70 percent of athletes polled don't think it's appropriate to demonstrate during competition here to tell us more is our team sports producer regina hamm. glad to have you again regina for having me so i'm going to need you to break this all down for us we're just 80 days away from the postponed 2020 tokie tokie tokie olympics and we've already heard the i.o.c.
3:41 pm
is making changes in addition to upholding rule 50 so can you explain to us a little bit about what will 50 means and some of the changes that we're seeing on the olympic sport this year sure so we'll see essentially there it prohibits any demonstration of political religious or racial propaganda in a limbic area so podio arena is etc so we already knew the i.o.c. was going to have some rules in place against protesting of any nature at the olympics that have been widely regarded for a while now it's been very it's been brought to the sports attention especially after you have purchased the tri 16 olympics in the pan american games when barry was seriously raise her fist during her gold medal podium ceremony so we've been aware that this was going to happen we knew it now saying that black lives matter apparel with the slogan on it is not to be allowed you are now asking the question ok obviously you're throwing that to the racial propaganda so why are you calling a propaganda there is a deeper question here that the it is posing we get it supposed to be a political just a coming together of nations to celebrate sport however by taking
3:42 pm
a stand against black guys matters of hair which to me there is not hurting anybody you can wear it to support it you're not supporting necessarily on a podium like blaring it out there making a stance that is almost political in nature may she would you say there's definitely saying this is a problem we will not allow it but hey what if you had someone who put oh i don't know all eyes matter stuff if anything and that has to be the issue exactly and i think there is a cab a yacht on and you can wear peace signs and these other things that are kind of alluding to politics but not really it's a very interesting struggle they find themselves in the i.o.c. is trying to remain politically neutral. they say 70 percent of their athletes that they polled were ok with this what does what does that mean do you think that people are actually going to exert the. right showcase what they believe their rights to politically take action or do you think that there is going to be some pushback from the i.o.c. going into this well so going there is a great example for the parity games here see the 12 months probation from the u.s.
3:43 pm
olympic committee they notified really after they are to me that decision not prior to so i think athletes will be discouraged now the i.o.c. and said what consequences people will face for protesting in olympic areas they have not specified like hey say you take a knee on your podium you receive an x. amount of banned from the sport no one's made that decision it's very vague it sounds like there will be consequences but we can't tell you what they are and so that i think will maybe keep some people from doing like we saw thomas with the john carlson 1968 mexico city games raising their fist of the podium if that was like those were my comic photos we hope their athletes will maybe just this is their platform will use it i think it's. i think the i.o.c. should expect it to happen now in what form no one can know because it's like it's their crystal balls are broken but i think that they should expect it however as you know american athletes i think are aware of the consequences from their own olympic committee now they may not choose to partake in any purchase but you have to see what comes you know in july in that sense well we've already seen that
3:44 pm
nonprofit organizations are stepping up to try to create a buffer protect some of these athletes should they decide to exhibit any any form of protest why do you think that's important and why have nonprofits actually tried to mitigate this ahead of time by announcing that they are basically here for these athletes in anticipation of what could happen i think they are into speeding that there will be people who will try to bring things to the to the forefront and you know racial inequality. things that we have seen in the united states and across the globe that exists that is still going to that is always underneath the subsurface the olympics you can say that a political we want we can say that they are just a show of support a show of sportsmanship there are still political issues lying underneath we can't ignore that so i think that those athletes who choose to voice his opinion these nonprofits are at least given that backbone that you know they're only the committees don't seem to be giving them that backbone you know saying this is this you could say is us is he this is this person's views this is their stance us does
3:45 pm
not support this stance but we support them in their choice to make that statement so the numbers are settling into the vacuum of where the own olympic committees are not taking that stance and you may see athletes knowing that be more willing to protest and stand up for whatever moral beliefs are and i think that really does show at the end of the day that they just want to keep they want to keep the peace and at any cost even if it's cost to banning someone for $5.00 or 10 years in a sport which is ridiculous absolutely and we have to also remember that these athletes represent their country and there are some at least in america cross the globe there are some questionable things going on in terms of human rights violations and race based issues absolutely and i think that's something you know we need to be aware of as watchers of the sport you know it's great to watch bobsledding it's great to watch diving it's great to watch all these sports remember these are still people and it comes back to athletes you know it's how we say they shouldn't they just shut up and play sports they're still people with opinions of the of the day absolutely thanks for joining me once again. and as we go to break remember that you can also start washing the hogs on demand the brand

3:53 pm
is well tolerated the f.d.a. now reviewing that data if it's approved the centers for disease control and prevention would hold an emergency meeting and issue recommendations the announcement comes as health officials are worried vaccine hesitancy could make reaching herd immunity in the u.s. difficult if not impossible there are concerns now amplified as new data indicates children in this country represent 22 percent of new cases reported in this past week alone according to the c.d.c. the average number of covert 1000 vaccines given per day in the us the 27 percent from a high of 3260000 on april 11th to 2370000 last tuesday a shocking report by the washington post found that the number of police officers getting vaccinated is lower or about the same as the general public in las vegas 39 percent of the employed police officers in the metropolitan police department have received at least one dose compared to the more than 50 percent of eligible adults nationwide meantime in atlanta 36 percent of sworn officers have been vaccinated
3:54 pm
while ohio's largest police force the columbus division a mere 28 percent of those employed reported receiving a shot and despite a massive effort by the pentagon to promote safety and efficacy of covert $1000.00 vaccines the u.s. military's opt out rate is about 33 percent while nearly 40 percent of u.s. marines are. declining vaccinations reporting in new york trying to teach others are to. an elementary school principal is under investigation in florida after spanking it fix year old child the incident raises questions about why such punishment continues in a country that prides itself in being a beacon of democracy parties came up and reports. now you would think the teachers beating their students in order to keep them in line is a thing of the past and certainly doesn't happen nowadays well if you think that you are wrong a recent incident in florida caught on video sparked outrage here's what happened
3:55 pm
to a 6 year old girl who allegedly damaged a school computer and there is disturbing video this morning of a school principal hitting a 6 year old student with a wooden paddle now the video was recorded by her mother she came to the school in order to pay a fine for the damage to property now the mother did not speak english and feared for her immigration status so rather than intervene she discreetly took out her phone and recorded how the principal spanked her daughter with the help of another staff member nobody would have believed me i stick to my doing so old parents can realize what's happening in the school now the official rules of county school don't permit for students to be hit but apparently it does happen however many counties throughout florida do have official policies permitting the use of corporal punishment elementary school principals are now able to paddle misbehaving students in marion county and many people at our morning news meeting wondered could they area schools the next piece of video showing 2 adults at an elementary
3:56 pm
school in georgia prepared to paddle a 5 year old child it's perfectly legal in that state and 18 other states 19 u.s. states maintain laws allowing corporal punishment in public schools and almost every state keeps it legal in private schools now some say this is just part of the religious and traditional cultures of some regions throughout the united states. but others say this is an outdated authoritarian practice pretty much child abuse has no place in modern education if our point isn't giving its occasion to our children the would employed reduces the amount of education and. mindset that a child could have while learning so i would say since the point of going to school been. what we're dealing with a wooden board is counterproductive to all children having the possibility to excel in schools where they so poor school or very well preschool children do better when they feel safe people across the country have very strong opinions about this
3:57 pm
disciplinary practice i feel like that's a something that a parent should do like that kind of discipline should come from parents and teachers should. just shouldn't be allowed to do that it's on their jobs i will definitely make sure that those people go to jail because. they can tell you this is the answer for honest man i think that he said a lot of ways to. make sure that the kids that are in the fact that beating children as a routine form of punishment in schools across the country certainly flies in the face of the image the united states has constructed for itself around the world. and that is our show for you today remember everyone in this world we're not told we're loved enough so i tell you i love you. i am keep on watching those off and have a great day and night everyone. something
