Today on Sekulow , we discuss the news that the Biden Administration is resuming aid to the Palestinian Authority despite their “Pay for Slay” program in direct violation of the Taylor Force Act. We are also joined by former Secretary of State and ACLJ Senior Counsel for Global Affairs Mike Pompeo to discuss this disturbing news with us.

Israel was trained by administration is resuming aid to Palestinians spying paper sleigh and talk about that and more with Secretary of State and ACLJ team member line from Washington DC. Your questions right now 100-684-3110. Something was coming the State Department on funding to Palestinians. And yes, last night the State Department announced to Secretary of State blinking that on April 7. So just so you sleeping that's the State Department, the United States government under the by the ministry's are playing to quote restart US economic development and humanitarian assistance for the Palestinian people, stating that include 75 million in economic and development assistance in the West Bank and Gaza. 10 million for peace building programs to USAID and 150 million in humanitarian assistance for the UN relief Works agency that is a total of $235 million now that comes in spite of the fact the Taylor force act bipartisan law enacted in 2018 expressly prohibits economic support funds being provided to the Palestinian government. Their work around here is that they're not directly giving the funds the government first or giving it to another agency is giving it to the government was which I'm not sure if that's enough of a work around the Taylor force act if that money is in knowingly going to the Palestinian government.

Once they receive it. These relief and Works agency's and other part of you could get around the law by simply having an intermediary shell and immediate company that then gives the aide to the various organizations that violates my view that would constitute a violation of the law now that's not been litigated so no one knows for sure but it was clear what Congress had intended what Congress intended that is until the Palestinian Authority changed its methods and programs to discourage pay to sleigh that this would not happen on top of that, Wes.

You pointed this out.

Carl was myth that there is money going to the education programs and the curriculums in these schools till still teach about that. It's very graphic and they talk about the blood of Israel running in the streets of Jerusalem absolutely sector blinking in the official State Department statement mentioned the fact that he was particular proud of the fact that some of these funds will go to help educate he said over 500,000 Palestinian boys and girls. And yet there is no stipulation with these funds that they change their curriculum J and that curriculum still calls for the hatred of Jews and for the destruction of Israel and I'm sorry and it doesn't matter how they get the funds you channel funds through a UN agency, Arthur USAID, but it is still going to the Palestinians. I'm not an attorney but seems to me that still a violation of the Taylor force enough then you talk about this thing at least violates the spirit of the act, but to me this is another shell game bite by the administration is clearly a violation of the act, and here's why. The act does provide a path for resumption of funding. It doesn't say if you give it to another account and then they give it to the prohibited use.

It's okay.

It specifically says jaded to resume resumption of this funding the Secretary of State the state. In this case Tony blinking has to certify a number of things into of the things are that the Palestinian government is taking credible asked in the violence and that they have terminated payments for acts of terrorism. J the State Department specifically acknowledges that they cannot certify. According to those things. A look and give it to any account that they want.

They have not satisfied the merits of the Taylor force act and this funding will be in it when violation of that act yummy.

I think when you look at all this folksy put it all together.

This is another action we got was taken action on this. The ACLJ Thriftway worker talk talk credit with Mike Pompeo.

I leave the project. We will talk to you about it as well.

When 100 684 31 two that's 1-800-684-3110.

This willingness to get out, get involved with Iran as quickly as possible to get hundreds of millions of dollars to the Palestinians as quickly as possible. They have not changed their policies on pay to sleigh that it is bad policy being just repeated again were fighting back now support the work ACLJ matching challenge month this month of April, so March and April so important for the American civil injustice. Double your impact of your donation ACLJ.org we are back at the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom detecting those who are persecuted for their faith. Uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy and fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress. ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that. We are grateful.

Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift comes 20 oh $50 gift becomes 100. This is a critical time for the ACLJ the work we simply would not occur without your generous take our matching challenge and make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you beautiful gift today online LJ only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive.

And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission will show you how you are personally and the publication includes all major ACLJ cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the abortion industry and what Obama care means to discover the many ways your membership in the ACLJ is powering the right question free copy of mission life today online/back to secular so you get 75 million economic and development assistance to million for peace building hundred 50 million in humanitarian assistance. This is what the Biden administration has announced new Secretary of State Lincoln that they are going to start restoring assistance for the Palestinians there proud of this. They are excited about this. They been looking at doing it. The problem is there is a law on the books it makes it more difficult for them.

I mean, some of you asked Sec. Boykin well do you believe that as the Taylor force act requires that, would you certify right of the passing governments terminated payments for acts of terrorism pay for sleigh is taking credible steps to in acts of violence against Israeli and US citizens but I don't think he would want to certify that right now he wouldn't. So instead they are trying a workaround approach typical. The question is we have a law on the books you're trying a workaround is the workaround violating the law, or is it just bad policy of allotment or baby a lot needs to be updated when you find out before the law. Specifically yet, so if there is a loophole we need to look at what that loophole might be if there's a number stand up there utilizing a funding mechanism to invalidate a duly enacted law that says that the Secretary of State has to certify that the Palestinian Authority's leadership as certify that they are no longer engaged in these kind of back sex activities that promote terrorism against Israelis. If there is a now a circumvention of that bison by just same old give it to USAID. Mel give it to this group and then they'll get there.

Well then, they'll never certify changes defeats the entire purpose of bipartisan legislation to protect our interests, including the United States and by the way they'll fourth was the was a US citizen soldier student at Vanderbilt so you know this is a US interest that's involved here and if it's that easy to just get around it that's a problem yeah violates the entire intent of the law and look they haven't told us exactly what they're gonna do yet, but J, I really strongly suspect this is the Planned Parenthood strategy where you give dollars for a prohibited use by sending it through a permitted account. But look, but let's put this in all in a slightly different light.

J if you can't certify that a certain government, any government is not using dollars to kill your own citizens take what why in the world would you even want to find workaround. I think that's the question I need.

If they technically think they can comply if they are using money to kill your own citizens.

Why should you try to find workaround shouldn't they don't want to comply were we kidding here. This is where living in in in fantasy Island. The idea is so, since they're not going to comply were not getting give them the money that was the idea behind the blessed is the idea you know as the chief executive of the United States. He he's has taken an oath to enforce the law, and rather than enforce this law, it appears his administration is trying to get around the law. We talked about the curriculum that teaches young Palestinian boys and girls to hate Jews to kill Jews and that's in the curriculum were not stipulating that it changes work on your part of this education. No wonder that these children grow up as young men and women to attack Jews and Americans because the pay display program. We talked about note, we are actually in an indirect way. But in a very real way, we will continue to help pay for that program. And yet, Sec. Lincoln. I kid you not. With a straight face said, I quote these dollars will help support Israeli-Palestinian understanding and it is in accord with US values in US inch. This is just to try and undo what the trumpet ministration successfully did, which is reshaping on the lease with partnerships and peace arrangements and trees including the Abraham accords between major Muslim got Muslim majority countries in the state of Israel, including economic cooperation, military cooperation, athletic, trying to do here in no and they were collected prisoners facing the front ministration to not let that recalcitrance of the about the Palestinians, or inability to negotiate and will unwillingness to negotiate to stop it now limited what we did on March 29. We sent a letter a foil letter to the United States department state regarding US aid to the Palestinian Authority and the Taylor force act. Here's what we requested records pertaining to US Department states knowledge and efforts surrounding the story that the bond administration is pursuing increasing USAID to the Palestinian Authority authority in spite of the limitations imposed by the Taylor force act.

That's what were asking for pureblood to go to court over it. But that process is currently not got a response yet now and then we got at this is the State Department spokesperson midprice. He's asked about it directly, and-ites that says you know to become consistent with US law. Take a listen by 24 you asked about how we ensure that this aid is consistent with applicable US law, including the Taylor's workforce act. I just want to underscore that all is one underscore that all of this aid is absolutely consistent with relevant US law in court, including those to it's they believe that they can use this workaround that they believe if they're not directly having the money to the Palestinian Authority soft USAID money goes to some other group and then goes directly to the Palestinian Authority that's okay today and I think that's where they could get into some trouble is that if they know if they knowingly give this money over to an agency or group that is going to give the money to the policy authority directly. That's what we have to find out what of this money is going to policy authority directly because if any of it is, it does violate very clearly the Taylor force act, and thus it's illegal you're not not sure midprice intoning. Lincoln had actually read the statute because within their excuse, or at least a purported excuse for what makes this compliant is literally nothing to do with the text of the Taylor force act rarely talked about this, but it if that funding J even if it are Jordan, even if it indirectly ends up with the Palestinian Authority if it is not accompanied by that certification from Tony Lincoln that pay for sleigh is over and Jordan that the Palestinian government is taking credible steps to end the got violence and it is in violation. That's the follow-up that needs to happen, and I'll just tell you this Jordan, that is one of the very reasons that we filed this FOIA request. We want to know who inside the State Department had this conversation when they looked at the Taylor force act and somehow came up with the conclusion that this was in compliance with the law, because quite clearly Dorothy I got it is read the statute. It doesn't comply. So our office got compiled a brief memorandum on this this morning and let me just read two paragraphs because I think it's relative irrelevant. It seems that the bond ministration is attempting to circumvent the Taylor force act through indirectly providing economic support funds and assistance. The Palestinian Authority similar to using these various entities to get around.

However, even if these funds are funneled through what are called humanitarian accounts. They remain in violation of US law unless accompanied by the certification we been talking about from the Secretary of State that the Palestinian Authority has in fact ended its paper slight program which they have not, and have no intent on doing is is my gather its they also have to take real steps to condemn and reverse violence. Sen. Tom cotton said resumption of any US foreign aid in part assistance that indirectly funds a Palestinian Authority's paper slight terrorist program would violate US law betray our Israeli partners and put Americans living in or visiting Israel in arms like the truth of the matter is Col. Smith. That there is no desire on behalf of the Palestinian Authority to do away with the this pay display program. They still find that they been funding it while we cut their funding out, they still funded yeah couple years ago when Pres. Trump withdrew $300 million worth of aid to the Palestinians unless they would renounce it. They immediately issued a statement the next day and they were very clear. We will not stop this program and they basically told us that we can keep our money.

I think we should still keep it. The Palestinians also J they do not want a two state solution they have rejected numerous times.

This is why the Arab states in the area have grown tired of this and they are aligning with Israel and and what I wonder now it is some of the same Gulf states and Arab nations. If there also aligning with Israel because they see the United States as an unreliable ally because every four years.

We change political leadership so they still appear to be aligning with usual in spite of the vacillation on our own State Department immature and there's a lot here at this district transcended ministration as it law in place to bar this funding and it I'd I don't. I'm not sure that by giving it to one agency that agency than handing it over to the Palestinian Authority, even if one dime goes to policy authority, then that law is violated, and if they know that's going to happen.

I think you're violating the law, because you know that the money is going to end up in the Palestinian Authority's answer some of it will hundreds of millions of dollars here then you know that you're violating the law. Your you are intentionally violating the law, because you know that the money is getting. It is a workaround. So there you have to explain you know is this money all going to be distributed by the UN directly to what's Palestinian Authority run schools when they go for law violated so I think that's we have to look at is that secondary action which here is it hard to figure out. It's not as like it's not like there's hundreds of different things going on here. There's a massive chunk going to the UN. The UN is good to be distributing those funds, which is scary enough to think about and then many of those funds I think will get to the policy authority directly. That's where the laws violated. That's where action could be taken by Congress and and I'm waiting to see out Republicans in Congress and those who work bipartisan support of the Taylor force act if they actually wanted it to mean anything. This is the time for them to start standing up in a bipartisan way and say no you can't do this because you're violating the purpose of this law you're doing so in an intentional way to know how you're violating it because you know this money eventually gets the Palestinian authority and I don't think that many hands think it's one hand given to the UN you, it's good to give a significant portion over to the Palestinian authority directly at some point some it's a 1 of connection. I support our work and Mike Pompeo come up next on secular matching challenge month of April, double the impact your donation to ACLJ.org only one.

A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life.

We created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission will show you how you are personally publication includes a look at all major ACLJ cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists. The ramifications of 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the abortion industry and what Obama care means to discover the many ways your membership in the ACLJ is empowering the right to question a free copy of mission life today online ACLJ/the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad.

Whether it's defending religious freedom.

Protecting those who are persecuted for their faith.

Uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress.

ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that.

We are grateful.

Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift becomes 20 oh $50 gift becomes 100. This is a critical time for the ACLJ. The work we simply would not occur without your generous heart wrenching challenge make a difference in the protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you. You forgive today online ACLJ secular 06 senior counsel for global affairs during his now force interstate Mike Pompeo Mike it's Jay I want to start with something. We were just talking about if we could and that is the binder ministration has decided to reinstate the economic support to the Palestinian Authority ignoring basically the Taylor force act, which will require your predecessor to your success.

Rather, to certify that these funds are not can be used for the pay display programs or violence and terrorism.

Some of this money is going to the West Bank and Gaza. Gaza course controlled by a mosque. What's your reaction to that mood by the administration fundamental met understanding of the work that likely Abraham courts will be very difficult. I think certify that funds going to the top of the ark and had bad actors in violation of the Taylor force act, and more than illegal, immoral to underwrite what the Palestinian Authority doing to support everything that continues to pay people to commit the fact all across the Middle East is outrageous. The American people are rightly disturbed by this and I'm glad that the judge at work are now kind of think I think will happen and we need to put pressure on the by administration to stop underwriting the cost in the 30 will upset the central dealings that we deliver the peaceful court that we delivered throughout the Middle East.

That's all that success in the in the midyear administration on reshaping the Middle East and all the new relationships that have been formalized. I still think those will continue to fight to make sure they continue but it's kind tells you where the new administration is one switch to the ICC's international criminal court not you know, I bet one of the one on one of few American lawyers actually appeared before the IC seemed to have done it twice and let most recently in the grand chamber and that was over the United States try to be hauled before the ICC will now the ICC is going after Israel, the Israelis, interestingly, Sec. Pompeo said yesterday that they have decided that their response is going to be. You have no jurisdiction over us. Which is correct. They had thought about not responding at all, but I think her to send a formal letter. We have already sent that legal documents and same technologies are no jurisdiction but that the Israeli military justice system is a complementary system. It's a sufficient system. If there was to be any kind of wrongdoing by in the military. They had the capabilities of examining that themselves what you think, you know, I know in your view of the ICC is that I think is important for our audience to understand that this tribunal is trying to get there hands around individuals including American soldiers and Israeli soldiers. It's the individual not just the states that the states actually will be limited to the Israeli nation undone now that work that we did to sanction this woman you know her well that the correct actor. He has behaved in ways that are inconsistent with her obligations under the rules of the try. The ITC that she should be in charge of the prosecution that she's planning gift that only Israeli young American soldiers who were serving in Afghanistan in the aftermath of 9/11. She is determined to go after the people be kid is wonderful American soldier to work in the Lord's work to create the appropriate deterrence against Al Qaeda and she wants to pursue the American system is really not both complementary is outrageous.

I regret that the Israelis are having to do that. I know that you been central to helping defend all of these individuals against the threat that this will courts. I hate to hesitate to call this broken body in the Hague Valley, it's very personal to us because we got team members and are off our international offices in less you notice that could be subject to this absolutely happy that this puts American soldiers literally around the world at risk of predicting Afghanistan and Iraq and of course does the same thing first release of an unsung realtor one another. But this, this ties into that that what we seeing a Pompeo with the new shuttle diplomacy that the binder ministration is so excited about with Iran there. Excited that in the end of the day.

Rhonda will even send messages back and forth between our European countries and the United States, and that there there praising. This is a big step forward and this is again to me it seems like they will just do anything and the Iranians are catlike at Skynet were kind of doing this, but that there certainly not. It's the but it's weird to me.

So to Pompeo this abide administration seem so excited about it, not the Iranians you think they'd be the ones who are excited about maybe getting sanctions lifted, but it's the binder ministration rushing back.

They know that the longer they wait the more the map of the other. But almost nothing about the pallets attached to them. I suspect it'll be worse.

It'll be billions of dollars in wealth creation of the Arabian machine in exchange for going back into it. Outdated the agreement was flawed from its inception it was predicated on the fact that they declared other nuclear materials which we know that not Dr. there were two secret ideals that are kind and I found Israelis uncovered at that archive the entire predicate of the agreement was based upon a lie and is remarkable to see this article of faith almost from the bite initiation to just desperately cling to go back into the field to guarantee faith patient pathway for nuclear program pretty rainy and we have the Chinese government become his party there deciding that they are in kind of engage the Middle East and the way they haven't before $400 billion deal with Iran and China is clearly kind of trying to triangulate the United States in that region but client generally does represent a multilevel threat here.

I mean, it's not just a threat to destabilize the Middle East region by propping up the Iranians, but also has direct involvement in our engagement in in the Middle East because we can find ourselves in the least policy opposition strongly.

We will against the Chinese government applaud abide administration caving to be rainy and don't forget one of the central provisions of the JCP away with that prevented conventional arms sales to promote, rotten, and leading ourselves from around as well that expired already know the five-year deal.

It's over. Started in 2016 and 20 2100 expired Pembroke last year that attorneys can now sell weapons and they will not sell weapons to the rate the ratings will transport oil to them in exchange for that is not good for the mentally fixed terrible for friend and ally Israel.

It creates real risk for the United States of America as well. Quick question, and that is this situation which China is not just of course in the Middle East. There's other engagement points and really got a minute left here is this Chinese threat.

The way things least handled so far by the abide administration creating more difficulties for the United States and for citizens before the rhetoric has been okay that talked about being tough on China, but every action that they have taken the data suggest that there that I could do that this threat from the Chinese Communist Party Israel gone so many fronts we could spend a lot of time talking about it we encounter in every one of them, whether that's in space satellite certain information warfare technology. Although strength we have to counter them. I hope goodbye the mixed-race will follow through on the promises he made during the campaign actually protect the United States and secure our freedoms from the Chinese, this part like you know you maybe see drafts of the sin we are working on a comprehensive piece on China right now that dumpster we will look forward to your input on that work done by our senior T policy team. So glad that we appreciate you being with us.

As always, thank you, George, Delilah hi folks, we are to be take your phone call second half hours coming up. What are your thoughts on this move by the State Department to find the Palestinian Authority again to reopen those funds begging the Iranians that get with your taxpayer dollars. So we want your thoughts to your questions, 1-800-684-3110 is 100-684-3110.

Remember our matching challenge why we have people like Mike Pompeo McDowell on our team because your support for ACLJW impact your donation early today ACL is the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ matching challenge for every dollar you donate will be now $10 gift becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 you can make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms are most important to you and your family. Give a gift today online ACLJ live from Washington DC back to secular second half hour coming up now.

I want to encourage you call it 164, 31 to because of what your thoughts to those you may observe the military to that the fact that the binder ministration just puts out basically press statement from Sec. Blake and say were to resume aid to the Palestinians were to comply with all the existing US law and they basically lay out how they think and amenable to putting words or methods how they think they're working around the Taylor force act, which prohibits funding to the Palestinian Authority and if that if they believe what they believe, which was that these workarounds were available because you go through other agencies. I don't know why they had to make such a big deal about this why do they feel like they need to start defending it immediately if this is something they they wanted to do. They don't like their supporters are going to be upset about.

I think they had to pro actively under their bid on this right away but then I think they felt data proactively kind of respond to the question in that. That's what had to do the statement in the first place because people say wait, I thought we passed a law count members of Congress on both sides. The outside you can't do this until you come to us and tell us that everything is okay and that is certainly not happened yet. I totally agree with you Jordan. If at this comply with US law, they would've made any statement about it all the luck saying that the funding is consistent with US law does not make it so Jordan you know that we we can argue about this all all all all day long and I think it probably will be litigated. I think there clearly on the wrong side of the issue, but I come back to the motive. I mean I want people to really think about this. Take take the names off of the nations or the states or the people involved and just imagine that US taxpayers are funding an entity or a government that has a program that pays hundreds of millions of dollars to slaughter Israeli citizens and American citizens, Jordan, no matter what the US law said II think the US laws on our side here. But even if it wasn't, why in the world would you want to fund that entity. Why in the world would you even want to find a workaround. That's the question that I don't think they can answer They think it's highly technical. This is Ned price again. State Department spokesperson kept getting pressed on the Taylor force act. Take a listen by 26 you asked about this fairly technical issue as to how we ensure that this aid is consistent with the Taylor force act, but I would not say that that's fairly well I'm getting time blaming the law or your following well it is okay you're right, it is very clear. We are following the law, everything we are doing here is quite consistent with it scrupulously so okay so I don't know how he got from say that was highly technical to know no proper very clearly were not everything is good here in the United States, says it issues an announcement, Harry says, is pleased to announce that working with Congress working with Congress really really working with Congress.

We plan to restart US economic development, humanitarian assistance for the Palestinian people know certification from the Secretary of State of compliance, absolutely not settled. The United States State Department is committed to global elitism. The State Department is filled with individuals who are skilled as what they are skilled in duplicity.

They're not skilled in telling the truth or not skilled in complying with the law. So I think the questioner in that clip that you played. Jordan was precisely on point is the United States in compliance or are they not in compliance, I think the answer is clear. If you look at the Taylor force act, which requires that the State Department certify that the Palestinian Authority has terminated its patent sleigh policy and its support for terror. Neither of those things are true and they haven't been true since the Taylor force act was passed.

Nonetheless, we have an administration which lives in the land of make-believe. They continue to defy the facts that are on the ground and save quickly. He said they told Congress they can't certify compliance according to the Washington Free beacon. They told Congress behind-the-scenes that they know the Palestinians are in compliance in either way, Jordan certified it right you do this, I think it's just this is part of their agenda.

They want to go back to the Iranian nuclear deal. They want to start again sipping tea with the UN members and to safety with UN members ratify the Palestinians and tear rescue will be right back on secular American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those for their faith. Uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress. ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that.

We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift comes 20 oh $50 gift becomes 100. This is a critical time for the ACLJ. The work we simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge today make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you gift today online LJ only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice.

Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn mission will show you how you personally.

Publication includes a look at all major ACLJ fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the ministry and what Obama care means to sever the many ways your membership in the right question for you copy mission life today online/back to secular. We are to your photos at one 800 684 31 two that's what hundred 684-3110 would get to the first call of the day if you talk to us in 2064 3110 Jim in Michigan online. One agent. Thank you.

Jordan forget me and my call through. I do a monthly donation to you guys matching and I believe yeah night. I just appreciate your content, but basically I'm calling because it's so so frustrating that a lot of the things that the Biden administration in others, or have been doing since before the election with the election changes that they did is totally going against what you guys are saying is, is obviously legal issues breaking laws in obvious ways. So for me, you know I'm I'm disappointed that the that someone isn't actually bringing them accountability. Don't be disappointed because we are. It's a process itself. So we have filed with the United States want the state holding my hand. The first FOIA request freedom of information act request on exactly this which is a FOIA request to the US Department of State regarding US aid to the Palestinian Authority and the implications of the Taylor force act now would have to litigate that. I suspect monogamy was that information once that information becomes public, then if there's a violation of the law. There are ways to challenge what has happened. So first we had to find out what exactly happened. So we are on that already are government oversight project is the largest it is ever been in the ACLJ's history because you sound like you listen is broadcast regularly.

Pretty much every day or so were adding a new case a new file so that's ongoing right now so I just want to let you know that.

Let me let me change gears for second here because I want to hit this immigration issue because this is Harry.

These numbers are staggering.

I want to read this to everybody.

The number of migrants encountered at the US border in March just March was almost was the most in 15 years, the US customs and border protection apprehended hundred and 72,000 people. This, by the way, the record from the Biden administration included 19,000 children and teenagers traveling without apparent that double the level from February and most every single month. The overall surgeon. March 8 71% spike over February's figures illustrates the scope of the challenge that the Biden administration is facing but yet the person in charge of this. The vice President has had time to travel to Chicago to visit a vaccine site and to go to California but not to the border that she's in charge of the policy up absolutely show in 19 are sorry 1838. Abraham Lincoln said if destruction be our lot.

We must ourselves be its author and finisher.

As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time or die by suicide. I think it is clear beyond question that there are officials within the Biden administration that prefer suicide to enforcement of the law to enforcement of national security and to ensuring that the United States remains a Republic, if you look at the numbers. The number of migrants is exploding child sex abuse is rising, and we are incentivizing drug trafficking and drug cartels. Yet Biden officials starting with VP Harris and including other DHS Sec. prefer to ignore the real problem real problem at the end of the day is Biden administration has reversed trump arrow policies that were working and then the Biden administration not only reverse these policies.

They didn't have a plan to deal with the flood of migrants who were coming across or planning to come across the border. So this is a very intelligent policy by an increasingly unintelligent administration. I'm holding in her hand a another legal document dated April 7, 2021 the US Department of Homeland Security to the United States customs and border protection United States immigration and customs enforcement into the United States state citizenship and immigration services from your American Center for Law and Justice. This is what it's regarding.

Pursuant to the document. This is the boy a document where letter FOIA request to the US Department of Homeland security, customs, immigration and citizenship and immigration services regarding records of the handling of the border crisis related to threats or crime the cancellation or postponement of operation talent in the arrest of persons on the FBI's terrorism watchlist in the do not fly list that is already been sent. I said already, just two days ago by the American Center for Law and Justice to Jordan to those government agencies where taking action on this immediately.

Gary, this is a massive crisis and we just put this in perspective. 15 days ago VP Harris was put in charge of the border. She supposed be handling of the diplomatic activities is the phone with the present nexus is made trips, cross-country trips back home to her home in an account in northern California.

She's also made trips to the Midwest on coven, but she's made no trips to the border, not even to look at the facilities where you got this massive rise 19,000 children a month hundred and 72,000 people in a month. These are the biggest numbers ever before in history and yet the person running this for the federal government has not yet even seen these facilities has not been to the border as vice President. Take a listen because Jen Saki got pushed on a very aggressively she got time to stop for snacks in Chicago just not time to take the vice President laid in and had to the board see what's going on. Take a listen to Scotland. This is wondering, is she still working on this and you address the perception that she's quietly backing off while sec. this is pursuing policies that is potentially prosecuting people packed and so let me just see what first, I would say the vice President was visiting Chicago actually to talk about co-pay and the importance of communities getting the vaccine when it's available and accessible to them and so she was there. Many Americans, she got a snack. I think she's allowed to do that. What you think about what this woman's decision. Saki just while there she was glad to get a snack.

Everything is a joke. Everything is a comedy. Everything is is hypothetical, and there's no policy but the real policy here is that there's a crisis on our border that's expanding by the hour. There flying kids and others to Newark today with no ID, no identification, except the letter from DHS.

That's what they're doing, you know, sometimes J when people act like they don't care is not an act, and this is this is a grave serious situation on the border and yet just yesterday. This was on the media today.

Nancy Pelosi, when questioned about the border crisis said we are in a good place on the border under the leadership of Joe Biden.

They either seriously are delusional, are they absolutely don't care and I hate to be jaded, but more and more I'm thinking they don't care I just it's the ramifications Harry are so significant on this. Every different and not just the border states to find them all over absolutely certain of the Biden administration is failing to take the border crisis seriously. They refuse twig met. What is open and obvious to every single American that there is indeed a border crisis that there's a search of migrants and so while Jen Saki is joking about going to the bakery.

Children are apparently being sexually molested in San Antonio detention facility and guess what the Biden administration is refusing permission to the state of Texas to investigate these allegations.

So at the end of the day. What are we elevating we're elevating VP Harris's ability to go shopping in a bakery while Rome burns your well I just think it's it's listen. It's she had passed for this assignment.

First thing you would usually do fan is you would go down in history, presence, and you see what was actually happening so you can report back to say week. This is good this is bad. We need to do this we need to do that. I don't think she wants to see the kids in cages and on that site think she's that stay away from that as long as possible. Jordan children are being trafficked in their being trafficked in and then there being recycled. That's what they call a call. Recycling sent back over the border and brought in again is a free ticket to the United States. This is not Republican, Democrat, or an independent Jordan. It's a humanitarian crisis and there's a solution to it. By the way there's a bill that would require DNA testing at the border when a minor is involved. Not a single Democrat is on that you don't get Democrats on that bill and get it enacted the vice President, the United States needs to do it by sick folks again. We got another site become an applicant to take her phone calls get to you Richard right out we come back from the break 100-684-3110. Go to talk to us on air about the proration situation to why you believe vice President Harris so afraid of just going to the border to be there to see it for herself as vice President as the person tasked with leading this effort. Give us a call. Why is she afraid is obviously very what hundred 64 3110. Remember matching child support worker ACLJ double impact your donation ACLJ.org only one.

This is a critical time for the ACLJ. The work we simply would not occur without your generous heart wrenching challenge to make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you today online ACLJ secular intake of phone calls that way hundred 684 31 said Richard California first hey Richard, you're on the air and I love your program. I just wanted thank you for doing what you're doing. What I will thing is driving me crazy. I'm an older gentleman.

I'm a Vietnam vet and all that stuff and and I love this country and I hate seeing this country self-destruct with the people that we have been there. I don't think any of them know what they're doing. There is no common sense. I believe that Biden is a prophet and he's got you. There's been soundbites where they caught him asking asking what he signing. He doesn't even know what he signing so how can we expect this person to run this country. We got teachers in San Diego volunteering to teach these illegals and they're not even being tested for coping. Our kids can't go back to school and and and this is just is driving me crazy to think of your service or the country is nothing you said that he was the disagreement. The whole situation is the fact that she doesn't go down there. Number one, number two, that the talk about filling in the gaps i.e. building the wall. Number three flying people all over the country now to get them into communities without knowing who these people are number 14 spring drop 14 feet over walls. This is a policy Harry of chaos absolutely and so at the apex. At the very top of the pyramid in leading this effort to stop the search we have the vice President of the United States who is engaged in what Marie Antoinette or she is essentially saying to the American people and to the migrants who are in these terrible facilities. Please have some more cake. This is an absurd policy is a policy which is created in my judgment by individuals who need to spend less time in the loony bin that we at we asked you to why you think that VP Harris does what he does it because she doesn't want us be seen with the kids of the cages for political purposes, but Diana has a different idea to an Indiana online Charlie there's a wrong answer here by the way I feel if you got it if you got thoughts on this 100-684-3110.

It's a head scratcher. They can figure out how to do an event down there I Diana, but welcome the show. You're on the air call will really why you are there, which I think is reflective of the entire duration and to see our way cute and competent situation. I think it was. We don't care. It's a political issue to them.

There is some aspect of that.

I do think though it's it's it's that so she doesn't want to be bothered with it even though she was tasked with the job. The second thing is it's ring this because it goes against the narrative that the imagery will be that one owner now because the images are done one on now and I think that Biden passed after she has a longer force political career likely than him and and she that she wants nothing to do with the reporters are actually asking if she even still big plans for this something and what is the sense on Capitol Hill. I know the reason is not what what citizens on capital elements, you know, J.

Honestly, the sense is not that it's incompetence. I think the sense is that it's deliberate. I mean, I think these are smart people generally that actually this is their policy to policy his nonenforcement and I think honestly Jay I think the evidence of that is what we talked about earlier in the week where they scrubbed the website of that announcement.

The two terrorists across the border. I mean I JI think they know what they're doing.

I think they're doing, and intentionally, but they're just trying to hide it from the American people. So I honestly set tell you I think in DC. I think giving them the passive incompetence.

I think that's going to EasyJet think they're doing it with eyes wide open, but I don't understand how you evaluate a situation and you show command-and-control military talk when you're not there that you can't.

You absolutely cannot and lay politics aside, lay there, there.

Your hatred of Donald Trump is that what what would help ameliorate the situation.

There are some things they could do, but because they were Trump policies. They refuse to do them they could reinstate the remaining Mexico policy which would help they are talking about building the wall, which I think is wonderfully ironic. They could also stop catch and release and do what the Trump ministry. All these children come to Jake what the truck administration did they endeavor to fly them back to Central America and reunite them with their families.

Even that would help right now it is getting worse and worse and it is a moral and humanitarian issue.

By the way West Smith is got a brand-new article up on ACLJ.org. It should be up by now, and it's on the Iran nuclear deal is called the Iran nuclear deal is not a deal wide distrust is necessary. Everybody working at that all of our platforms need to do it. We got another call, let's go ahead and try to grab a cup of those toward yeah action actually insert a bill allowing first hey Bill number one.

I think thereafter. Just position so they can do whatever they want to without having to face any consequences. There is an upside to this, but I got some of the stimulus money from Biden.

I went and decided to stimulate your work. Again, this is the situation with the is a great idea. The unit is rated they get there that you could pick and choose issues but that's what happens in your present VP Sen. Sometimes you can. Yes you want to weigh in on a lot. You don't own everything they can decide that's what she's used to. That's what brides used to as VP Obama.

He was certainly taking a backseat role to someone was much more prominent now that he's the front seat delete.

The buck stops with them on everything on every issue that includes the stop the sovereignty of the United States, and what's happening our border. That's the biggest promise ballistic try to call the day Gloria in Ohio online to hey Gloria hello, thank you for my call and I wanted to make a comment and I believe Pres. right out of the border become calm. Then she had made about the border patrol look.

I think you're right about the border patrol and you write about the comments about the security.

This is cutting totally against Harry there narrative on how to handle this immigration crisis and she is.

Jordan said she just doesn't want to own absolutely. So I think VP Harris has said many critical things about the comp administration. Now it's on her law and then the question becomes what can she do to reverse it.

Well, there's an old saying that says that when you rent a whole stop digging the Biden administration prefers at the moment. Keep digging and try to ignore the problem.

When the migrant crisis is actually being fueled by incentives and one of the incentives are one of the sources of incentives is simply the fact that the Biden administration has generally speaking, reverse virtually every single Trump era policy that was working not only with respect to the border but also with respect to, for instance, the Palestinians and the Romanians they just hate President Trump so much they actually have blinded themselves to a solution to the problem and it's time for them to open their own eyes. Continue this fight, a connection yeah exactly what I could just stand by and talk about this we take action on these issues take action on the issues involving the funding to the Palestinian Authority retirement earlier broadcast of the Taylor force act.
