Administration plans to open a temporary shelter for migrants. Children in texas The very practice the media blasted The Trump administration over.

Let’s bring in former acting Commissioner of u.S customs and border Protection mark morgan To discuss that dichotomy and all of President Biden’s executive orders now. Undoing Trump immigration policies mark good too. The white house press secretary said, I Believe it was yesterday kind of sending This message.

They don’t come yet, we’re Not ready for you. Um but you’ve noted the numbers are Surging. Did you expect there would be This many this soon Absolutely and so did every expert who Have spent their lives Upholding the rule of law? making Sure that our borders were secure saying.

We’ve been sounding this alarm during. The entire uh Biden campaign that. If he did, what he Promised he was gonna do. We would see a crisis that would make 2019 Pale in comparison and that’s exactly What we’re seeing what? I’ve said with The stroke of the pen just a couple of hours after, Biden took office he has made our Borders less secure Our country, less safe, and has endangered.

The men and women on the front lines of Our borders. Trying to protect our country, Shannon. We’re in a new era here with Era. Where the united states now is Absolutely encouraging Incentivizing and they’re facilitating Migrants to enter the border illegally. That’s where we’re at right now it’s Unbelievable And those people are often exploited by The coyotes and the human smugglers who Put them in terrible dangerous Situations.

Not fair to them either along that Process. I want to read something from Axios that says, Biden’s brewing child Migrant crisis now word. that they’re Going to open up these temporary Facilities for unaccompanied kids. Says, the trump administration was Lambasted for its extended use of the Temporary shelters in so-called tent Cities.

When holding facilities were overwhelmed During the migrant crisis in 2019. Biden’s rhetoric and intentions differ But that doesn’t change his challenge. When apprehensions rise And space runs out the options are Limited Shannon that’s exactly right again. We Anticipated now these are Hhs facilities for unaccompanied minors Once. Cbp has apprehended them trying to Illegally enter.

Then we give them to has But look those same tent cities. They’re already starting to be constructed for Cbp Because we’re anticipating The increase in numbers. They’re going to be needed look it’s not complicated. If your border strategies consist of if You get here. We’re going to release you Into the interior united states.

We’re going to protect you from lawful Deportation and once you get here and Remain here illegally. We’re going to Reward you with the expansion of data Amnesty and free health care, of course, They’re coming and Shannon that’s what We’re seeing right now. The 21-day average is 3 000 a day Just a couple of days ago.

We reached 3 500 in a single day Trying to illegally enter this country. We haven’t seen those numbers since the Crisis In 2019 and this is a direct result Of president Biden‘s open border Strategies Period.

Well, his own administration is Telling those folks. Don’t come yet. But we know that there Are other messages out there that Serve very much as a magnet for people.

Who are looking desperately for hope And for a different place to be. So, we’ll track this and we know that. There’s talk of what they’re trying to Do on capitol hill.

It doesn’t seem like A lot of bipartisanship Right now. But they’re going to give it a try.

We now know how house Impeachment managers plan to Make the case to convict the Former president and what his Own attorneys plan to offer as a Defense. This morning those house Managers filed a sweeping,

80-page pretrial brief that lays Out in rather stark terms the Events leading up to that riot That day, noting quote, trump’s Singular responsibility for that Tragedy.

President Trump announced a save America rally on January 6th, Promised it would be wild. Summoned a mob to Washington, Exhorted them into a frenzy, and Aimed them like a loaded cannon Down Pennsylvania avenue.

Hours later, trump‘s defense Attorneys filed a 14-page Response of their own to the House article of impeachment, Which by the way, included a Typo on the cover page, Addressed to the u.S.

Senate and Misspelling the united states. Trump’s lawyers asserted the Constitution quote requires that A person actually hold office Be impeached, and that trump exercised his first amendment right to express he believes That the election results were Suspect.

He Therefore denies they were False. Denied that the Phrase. Insufficient evidence exists to Conclude that the 45th President’s statements were accurate or not. . if you don’t fight like Hell.

The majority of Senate Republicans agree with at least one part of this argument, that The trial is somehow Unconstitutional because trump Is no longer in office. Last week indeed they voted to Toss out the trial on those Grounds despite the fact that Their chamber,

Some of their own Desks were ransacked. Today their leaders signaled That issue could be deciding Factor again convicting trump. do you go into the Impeachment trial still having an Open mind? look I want to listen to the Arguments, the issue upon which we Voted is an interesting Constitutional question.

Who The Heck Is In Charge Of The Border? GOP Senator Slams VP Kamala Harris Over Migrant Surge

The vice president is traveling to Mexico and Guatemala. We’re told this week to try and figure it out. What are the root causes of the immigration crisis, unfortunately? the place she’s not going is a southern border. Which is where the burden is being felt by people on the border on a daily basis.

the news today tnt

We put an enormous amount or an enormous amount of pressure. I should say on our border patrol agents at the border. the vice president’s staff says, that she is not responsible for the border. The president says he is not responsible for the border. Which begs the question. I think that should concern the American people and that is, who the heck is in charge of the border.

We see on a daily basis what’s happening down there and I think. If they want to get at the root cause of what’s happening at the border. All they have to do is look at their reversal of all the policies. That was in place prior to when they came to the office. That is why we have a crisis at the border today and to the leader’s point one of the things.

What the senate could address is legislation bipartisan legislation to deal with the border crisis. But senator Schumer has determined that. He wants to make a political point rather than to resolve problems for this country and so, this next month is going to be dedicated to his.

Destined designed to fail agenda which includes a bunch of bills. That he knows are not going to get across. The finish line but it’s all about partisanship. It’s all about playing political games. Which is unfortunate I think the American people expect better of us.

they expect more of us there are things. That we could sit down and do as the leader pointed out. We’ve already done this year on a bipartisan basis. I would hope that the members of his caucus will come to the conclusion.

that they would rather legislate than score political points. But we’ll see what happens over the course of the next several weeks.

That could bring the world closer to a definitive conclusion on the origin of the virus and deliver a report to him again in 90 days. It will be another whole government effort. As I mentioned including work by our national labs and other agencies importantly. We will continue to push for a stronger multi multilateral investigation into the origins of the virus in China and we will continue to press China. To participate in a fully transparent evidence-based international investigation with the needed access.

Hello and welcome, how best to share Limited vaccine supplies is due to be Discussed. Here in London by foreign Ministers from the wealthy g7 nations. There is growing pressure to Redistribute stockpiles and know-how With poor countries, that are struggling.

Indian delegates in the UK for G7 talks self-isolate

So, far we’ve seen more than 49 million Vaccines. Doses Delivered through covid. Now that’s the International program set up to ensure Fair access to vaccines. But the leader said back in April That only 0.3 percent of vaccines Administered.

Around the world Had gone to people in low-income countries. So far it’s the us that has Promised more than four billion dollars. To covid Far more than any other country. But it Is sidestep calls to relax international Property rules to allow cheaper vaccines. The UK well has pledged 500 million Dollars. But along with other rich nations, There’s a question about what happens to Vaccines. That is surplus To domestic needs and aside from the Challenges faced by the g7 meeting.

It’s Emerged the Indian delegation Is now self-isolating. After two of its Members tested positive. They will now take part in the meeting Virtually Courtney Bembridge reports. Our wealthy nations doing enough to help Poorer countries tackle covert 19.

 

Indian delegates in UK for G7 talks self-isolate
Indian delegates in the UK for G7 talks self-isolate

That’s the question being put to g7 Foreign ministers. Who are meeting to consider new ways to Ensure fairer access to vaccine Stockpiles. The g7 countries are the world’s economic and political leaders. They’re also home to many of the world’s Vaccine producers. We will only solve the vaccine crisis With the leadership of these countries. Six months into the global vaccine Rollout and only 0.3 percent of the Doses administered around the world.

Have gone to people in low-income Countries contrast. That with the figures. We’re hearing from us Our goal by July 4th is to have 70 Of adults. Americans at least one shot and 160 million Americans fully vaccinated. That means giving close to 100 million Shots Some first shots others. Second shots over The next 60 days In India. Where coronavirus infections Are spiraling out of control.

Less than 10 percent of the population Has had their first jab. It doesn’t make moral sense for the Majority of people. To be in the queue Dying waiting for a vaccine. But was Still New variants keep coming the longer the Virus remains. Anywhere in the world, more variants Come.

That is resistant To the technology which exists and then, We are back to where we were Winnie b Unema founded the people’s Vaccine campaign to remove. Patent restrictions on covert 19 Vaccines and medicines To allow more countries to manufacture Doses. The world health organization supports The plan along with a hundred countries. Led by South Africa and India that are petitioning the world.

Trade organization To waive protections on intellectual Property the EU And UK say! they’ll oppose the move Critics say the proposal. Wouldn’t solve Supply chain delays Take Pfizer’s jab for example. The Company says it needs 280 components from 86 suppliers In 19 countries.

So even, if you waived The patent it would take months. If not Years to replicate Pfizer’s complex Supply chain. It may actually disincentivize  Any entity any commercial. The entity from Getting involved in vaccines and much in All as. We Love them or load them the commercial Entities have. The Professional resources to get a vaccine Into the Final use the top. Coronavirus advisor in The U.S.

Dr. Anthony Fauci has warned the Plan Risks backfiring. If it leads to long Legal disputes The Biden administration is expected to Set out its position. At a world trade Organisation meeting on Wednesday Courtney Bembridge THE NEWS TODAY TNT news. So much to talk about with our global Health correspondent Naomi Grimley.

Who Joins me now G7 foreign ministers meeting lots of Talk. But is any one country putting Forward A proper proposal? That would work to Start? sort of Narrowing the gap on vaccines the answer. To that is no So far in terms of redistributing excess Doses.

You’ve had America give some four Million to Mexico a neighbor and to Canada a Neighbor. But of course, they are sitting on large Supplies including 60 million doses of that oxford AstraZeneca. Which hasn’t actually been Approved In us at the moment and when it Comes to A country like the UK. The UK has got in The pipeline Access to 517 million doses Of vaccine. Now obviously that is many more times than it needs to vaccinate. Its entire population.The only country that has actually sort Of put some proposals to Kovacs.

So far Is France it’s volunteered to give some To west Africa. But again a tiny amount, We’re talking about 500 000 doses. So not very much it wouldn’t really go very far in west Africa And overall Naomi the world does need more vaccines. We need to produce more What’s happening with the supply Chains at the moment.

Well, they’re Severely disrupted and this is a big problem because. The serum institute the biggest Vaccine maker in the world. Is obviously situated in India And they now need to keep those vaccine Doses for themselves And that means that the Kovac supply. So A big global project to get Vaccines to low and middle-income countries.

That Tap has essentially been turned off so Even a country like ghana. That was doing quite well getting Vaccines into arms Is now finding. That there just isn’t any Vaccine left And the other key issue that’s being discussed. As well and people have been Mentioning for Months what is going to happen in terms Of waiving. The patents for some of these Vaccines any progress there. So that has obviously gained momentum. You’ve got the who Backing also got you to know big Hitters like Gordon brown.

The former UK prime minister backing it. The big problem There is uh big western countries don’t Like the idea of you, know IP being watered down. IP Protection’s been watered down. They fear it would be a slippery slope And that’s why that proposal Just doesn’t seem to be breaking through And you heard in that piece there. That even dr Anthony Fathi. Who likes to Take a global view of things. Thinks that it could actually cause more problems. Then it would solve Particularly with Legal battles over vaccines.
