Jay Sekulow Barnes agenda. I ran first at Israel's expense line Washington DC line 1 questions right now. 1-800-684-3110 ML chief counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice secular everybody will broadcast.

We got a lot to discuss today.

My company, our senior counsel for former Secretary of State and rejoining us in the third segment were discussed both Iran and Cuba, and there's a similarity and I want to talk about that right at the top of the broadcast of the similarity is the way in which the administration is responding to remember 2009 2009. The green revolution in Iran. Millions of students took to the streets of Iran to overthrow the ayatollahs and it could have happened. It happened in other parts of the skull.

The Arabs right it happened in other parts of the world, but the Obama and Gratian by doing nothing. Encourage a standout. In other words, we were not doing anything to encourage the protesters or require a desire for democracy. Cuba has tens of thousands of people in the streets right now and the response from the White House is At best. Now Logan said this on radio yesterday and is very true.

Cuba is 90 miles from Miami, a 26 minute flight. You can get there by boat in a couple hours. I mean, it is our neighbor, yet were doing little to nothing to protect the protesters to encourage democracy and some on the left have even praised these regimes, which is ironic indeed.

Socialism, communism has not served mankind well but yet the desire seems to still be there. You talk about that yesterday Logan what was the response from those that were listening to the broadcast and we have a lot of comments, to calls commit us to share their thoughts and views to be educated on what's happening. Also a big part of this is not necessarily a full grasp of what's going on. Special.

There's so much happening within her own country and these topics notice early, make the top headlight as we see this morning. It's all Jeff Baeza's going to space. It's all it which is great. Joe could get a problem with it in their pockets, positive things happening in the world and have a positive things happening in our country, but I think you want to be educated on what's going on. It's about looking just get out of the new cycle Cuba. I'm see last week with a big deal this week barely covered Odyssey things of change are those babies not as strong of an uprising that I spoke about the beer but there are things still happening. We make sure we we keep up with it. That's why we have on yes yes they recruit now. Later on by Pompeo to bring people on part of her team to keep these things going for you. Watch the show in your apartment. I'm encouraged by this.

I'm encouraged by the people in these countries that are protesting. I'm not encouraged by our government's response to those protests. Iran it is Iran first United States is you were acting as if Iran is a superpower. They called off negotiations with the United States pending their installation of the new, even more radical President were to get into that coming up to take your comments about this is a serious issue and offer the ACLJ is serious to and fan. I don't know what I would doing timewise here but fan what's reacting in Washington on you just met a man left Jaden. I would tell you I think some of the strongest reactions are coming from elected officials who are actually Cuban-Americans.

I mean I would I would quote you Congressman Maria Salazar who said we see the American flag waving on the streets of Havana because they yearn for what we have freedom. I know this well because I am the daughter of political refugees who fled the evil Castro regime J I'd like to see that tone coming from down the street at the White House that right will work in a matching salad was also over Logan encourage you to participate.

Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge every dollar you donate will be managed $10 gift comes 20 oh $50 gift becomes 100.

The work we do.

Simply would not occur without your generous as a coordinator matching challenge today make a difference in the protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms you forgive today online ACLJ only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is certainly protect.

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, called mission life will show you how you are personally pro-life battle supports and the publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists.

The ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the and what Obama care means to the pro-life of the many ways your membership of the ACLJ is empowering the right to life question free copy of mission life today online ACLJ/below we are talking about a few different topics really about getting around to rejoining the excitement by by Pompeo without Jay Sekulow starting his boat leaving Wes Smith here and will hate and studios list continues. Discussion going on if you want to give the call love to hear from you what hundred 684-3110, 100 684 31 Ted Ehrlich their bid offices in DC so you hold panel people good dad first to say where you think people should start to learn.

Start be educated on what's going on. I think it relates to Iran. We have to look at the fact that a hard-line administration is put in power they call an election, but it's not elections that the Ayatollah picks these individuals and their puppets of the Ayatollah in this idea that working to negotiate in good faith by Pompeo because I ran the senior partner in this project I think is even more than that to me is it some America acting as I said earlier, as if Iran is some kind superpower.

So I think we have to realize that what we have to do it. The American Center for Law and Justice are international affiliates is recognize the harm that can come into place when the Iranians if there is ever this deal struck and that is going to be that you will get a nuclear Iran, which is very dangerous for Israel, but very dangerous for the entire region and dangerous for the United States and brings instability. Remember I ran and blessed with good addresses is the largest exporter of terrorism in the world.

We did a movie on that a decade ago and is proved to be more true now that even was then but Wes. They are the exporters of terrorism and US policy is is not helping that diminished and they are terrorism writ large in one of the things that I found alarming about the binding ministrations response in a number of areas is that they seem to be very soft and nave. On the whole issue of terracing. For example, the idea that he still wants to close down Guantnamo Bay released a printer yesterday one of the terrorist who is responsible for plotting attacks on America. Our southern border is porous. We have had people cross the border that we caught we don't know how many we did not catch who were on the terrorist watch list and get the Biden administration seems totally nonplussed by that I in March. He took the hoodie rebels off the terrorism list been on there for a long time. They were on the terrorism list under Pres. Obama's will is present Trop, but he took them off of that and then you get to a Rand there is this this delusional idea. I think by Pres. Biden and his his team that somehow if we will lift sanctions and we will help quote unquote Iran that they will become more like us and that they're going to be active good partners in that is that is not only nave J that is dangerously nave to say that about Logan that that the problem with all this is Wes is exactly right is the navet of the eminent.

This is the same people remember this. This is the Obama team just been promoted now from the agencies to the White House this the same teams leading the charge in August.

It's the same teams that are desiring. This this impact, which is this suppose a nuclear deal, which does nothing but give Iran a pathway to a nuclear weapon that's the problem with all of it and it's the same problem of messaging that we have in the situation in Cuba.

Tens of thousands of people in the streets in Cuba and the Biden administration is basically tepid at best silent. At worse so we don't know where to pick this in this patient does not know where to pick its allies that's the problem in that I think is creating a lot of problem there is mixed feelings, probably amongst the ministrations people. Probably it's just like the pictures we have Joe by glancing we know communism bad socialism, not much better than you people of his own party and probably within his own staff and White House the don't feel that way.

So there's probably a a old school in NH.

Sadly, more progressive new school. They probably have an internal battle on where to go that were they going to look at the policies Obama administration issue for a lot of it's just been rolled over into this ministration is not necessarily where the party is the party. Is it where they were with Obama just six years ago. A lot has progressed a lot has changed opposite the world has changed and I did these situations. These issues Iran, Cuba, human rights in general are broadcast in a completely different way and we have to make sure that there hopefully is a unified voice released our side of what we should be doing.

I think that's right. And I think one of the things that we got a point out, it will is our director of our broadcast was also on on air with us today. And it's interesting to me. Will that the media has been so pretty silent on Cuba.

I did shocking to me and you got basically potential revolution taking place there and it's silence and that's because the hard left actually supports these regimes. That's what's so scary about all this while in the concern is in what we saw with the green revolution is when it wasn't fully supported in the world didn't come alongside of the protesters in the street what you ended up with is a revolution that fizzled out any stronger Iranian regime. So now you look at what's going on in Cuba and are wondering is this replaying is history repeating itself same people in the administration of the Obama administration now in the Biden administration and the same media players as well. Are we going to see a what is now for the first time in 60 years the people of Cuba standing up in the streets demanding freedom, are they going to end up falling apart and because of lack of organization or lack of support internationally and then the regime in Cuba actually benefiting from a failed revolution in their streets that that's what I think the grape is exactly what happened in Iran.

That's why withdrawing the parallel. This broadcast a lot of things we did with the ACLJ on up all our policy side, which is what were talking about today is look at the ramifications repercussions of how issues interplay and you're exactly right. The concern has to be that if the regime in Cuba survives after you have tens of thousands of people in the street and by the way, they would not survive.

The United States supported the efforts of the people. Let's be clear, there's no way that if the United States properly, legally, with under international law supported the efforts of the people in Cuba that the regime would survive. Having said that, you have to have the willingness to take the risk. The willingness to take the challenge.

The willingness to engage the enemy so to speak, and they are the enemy near an enemy. That's 90 miles off of our border. So that's the problem with all this was the same with Iran when that revolution failed because Pres. Obama did nothing to support back to the contrary when they did nothing to supported and really hurt those millions of students on the street. Millions of students in the entire run on the streets and then the ayatollahs scripts become stronger, so are we going to support we should be exporting something it's called freedom and liberty which we believe is a God-given inalienable right and that's what we should be exporting at the as the United States land and I am concerned that there are some so hard left in Congress right now that they actually support. I'm not saying it is what the ayatollah but they support these human regimes you're correct to be concerned.

I think that same mentality exist in the White House as well. Looking around, there's no doubt there was a missed moment there was a missed opportunity in time and I think that is exit that exists in Cuba is indwelling look I would tell you two things day. First of all, we see lots of agitating on the left for ideas of communism and socialism will. I think they would do well to look at the people who actually neatly living under these regimes to see how they work. Those are the people that are trying to escape them in a J on the policy point I was really concerned this week when the secretary of homeland security may work as he finally found a group of people that he doesn't want to let into the country.

It's the Cuban refugees who are coming by boat and J. Of course, rule of law still applies there. But if there is one group that would have a legitimate claim to asylum ports that would be them, and yet that was the single group that the secretary decided to single ounce.

They were to turn you back.

So were letting illegal aliens coming through our southern border with basically no interference and were letting people that actually have legitimate asylum issues under are fleeing regimes that not only suppress but kill the people that disagree with them and were not supporting those people without letting them in a way that's happened before in our history, Republican and Democrat at the site Republicans a bit better about it that they've been moments to but I think what we have to be clear here is what is the message we are trying to send out West as the United States, it should be and where to export something it should be you repeat the cuts are constitutional Republican form of government everywhere in the world, but freedom and liberty and fundamental human rights. What the United States should be exporting yeah and that is our tradition, then it's our history her past practice when things like this happen and face it, opportunities like this don't come along very often but when they do America has been a needs to be now the unequivocal champion of freedom. We need to have unequivocal support of the demonstrators in Cuba. There are things we can do it. It starts with is really giving them support unlike what we did with the, the demonstrators and ran. We can also use a Guantnamo Bay, which is on the island of Cuba to bolster their Internet which the Cuban regime is not cut off in order to stop communication on the people longing for freedom and there are other things we can do practically we can use our intelligence services to covertly support the people there in Cuba JI was moved to. As I watch the demonstrators of the last few days. They're not down there you know protesting about covert vaccines or things like that are the embargo. The US has on them. They were holding American flags and they were crying, freedom, freedom, over and over again that should move if everyone in the administration to champion their cause that's why we do this broadcast absolutely would love to hear from you right now if you would give us a call tells what we think about how we can help like my dad said export that some of these other countries that needed entire they need the opportunity gives a call right now what your thoughts are general of this really get about 100-684-3110, 100-684-3110 course donations also to ACLJ are doubled by the July so if you give during July, $10 from 20 console in the very back 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've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission life will show you how you are personally pro-life support and publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life Jesus were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist the ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the end what Obama care means to the pro-life in many ways your membership in the ACLJ is empowering the right to life question free copy of mission life today online ACLJ/the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad.

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 do. Simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge today make a difference in the protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms you forgive today online ACLJ secularist Logan Sekulow but my dad is joining us remotely. Right now Jay Sekulow. We also have less myth here will things.

We also have DC scuffle panel and gets calls, and if you will be part of that conversation. What 100 684 30 with and we are joined now by our one of our senior counsel here at the ACLJ you know him as well. Mike Pepin, who is joining us live right now I were talking about. You are currently the new piece right will. It's available@aclj.org. That's right, you have a new article of the American people must stand with the people of Cuba as they demand freedom in thus far we have seen a tepid at best support from the administration for the Cuban protesters. What should the American response be to the situation in Cuba or your point well taken.

I think It's actually pretty generous that it really went into any significant level of attention that the uprising to keep the Cuban people demand for freedom should be met with real America back in their app doesn't think we could do. I went out with that yet director of secular state. We knew how to turn on the Internet like like allotted North Korea that we could help them communicate with each other.

We could do that.

That usually piled on top of our short, we could conduct exercises and international waterways throughout make. They needed backup power was not far offshore help the Cuban people regain courage and strength when they are being oppressed no way we know clearly that Regina is doing today inside of Cuba. We could begin to build out a set of diplomatic strategies that work articulate your private, I delete will make sure you get back get you to a place where the Cuban people could have the freedom they richly deserved, and then we should be well lightless talking about communism and eight people at all the forwarded upon the Cuban people and we should be doing that not only the American outages body all across the world building a coalition to support freedom for these people who want nothing more than to live their lives back at their fate and live outside of the tyranny that they cast that class Castro follow-up 23rd delivering to them today. They were going to reconnect with your sound difficulties and will.

This is something we talked about will get you back on just a second here. We've talked about this that new blog.

It's available@aclj.org to encourage everyone you haven't spent time on our website to do that is not just really promoted to go in donate support and keep us indelicate shows going to happen, but more importantly, there is great content front of our team including a 68 Mike Pompeo and it's a it's a great experience to go and see all its Brady website.

Also, for a lot of you are getting are brand-new websites you take a look at that ACLJ had an art that one of things I want to encourage people also visited today is a really heavy focus for us on policy issues and you may think of us as the courtroom people and of course we do a lot of that in the legislative affairs but you got a deal with policy and what might secretary Pompeo was discussing what were discussing earlier is what is the American policy, the United States, a pop policy debate as a relates either. I ran with were unfortunately seen that unfold Cuba, which as the secretary just said there a lot of things the United States can do like getting the Internet back on not located for our CIA supporting those on the streets giving diplomatic measures so that the Cuban leadership understands that there is no option other than freedom and liberty.

So that's the one thing I wanted to go back on that bike with you because there was talk about Iran is the great exporter of terrorism.

The United States tries to export freedom and liberty. But this is 90 million miles away from our border. We have this situation and I what are the next best plans that should be put in place as it relates to Cuba. Your viewpoint very well taken.

We made very clear to the reading that we would impose enormous cost on them. We declared them terrorist bomb state-sponsored terror, something I didn't secretary of state. They are declaring that they might be radiant are there narco terrorist status while they are transmitting drugs and transferring transient drugs all across the Caribbean.

We have real implicitly it will cost. We can impose on the Cuban leadership that we can give them at SK patch and we have the web make absolutely clear that this game is our after all these years after the revolution. The game is over that country get a move to freedom of the United States imposed an enormous cost on them not go to baseball games that have hotdogs with them, but impose enormous cost them until the time they get that right so what is the theory.

I mean, you were you were running this CIA you were the Secretary of State. What is the possible thought process that the Biden administration could be doing right now as they implement this nonengagement strategy.

This is not no common strategy with regard to Cuba thinking could happen here that would be beneficial to the Cuban people or the United States by doing nothing is a long-held view, the Biden Obama view that if you and if you sell them stop the European is what befell them to stop.

That will get to the people, their lives will get better and then the country will somehow magically become free is foolish.

It is dangerous. It's bad for the Cuban people expect for the region in our national security as well as the youth as you set this is just that less than 100 miles off our shore. The Russians are operating there all the bad guys are operating there. We have to get this right, it is not as hard as they described that their logic somehow suggests much like with Iran and China that if you sell them some trinkets to give them some money and magically things will get better. It is foolish for me.

I see this we abandoned the Obama ministration abandoned the green revolution when you had millions of Iranian students and streets time trying to overthrow the ayatollahs was during the Arab spring and it could happen, but the Obama ministration stood silent, you have the same parallel taking place right now as a relates to Cuba you got this mass resolute revolution on the street terms mass protest, not the numbers that you had enqueue because the population about the size but proportionality probably very similar, yet nothing is happening and what is the message that were sending globally to our allies to those that are seeking freedom and liberty within tyrannical regimes when we do nothing. I so wish that that happened in Cuba a year ago when Pres. drop but I work running American foreign policy. We understood that the world was watching how America reacts freedom loving people simply demand to get their lives back your point well taken.

I promise you that great freedom fighters part the country and are part of the walk and see this and they are discouraged from doing precisely what the Cuban people that because the American leadership wouldn't rally alongside them well and I appreciate your work and when you work for the CIA director and of course the secretary stated more just world that your senior counsel with the ACL take a minister inside Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo thanks for being with us.

Thanks for the insight. Loving this again is another reason why supporting the work of the ACLJS.

Today we talk about policy wherever broadcast policy on social media platforms on on on websites on course on radio stations around the country and satellite radio anybody in the world can get this broadcast is because people are standing with the ACLJ, especially during our matching challenge anywhere in the world. If your country allows the Internet so that is had ACLJ.org as you said, that's one of the blue things were fighting for ACLJ.org go there.

Give a gift today online ACLJ.live from Washington DC secular line from morning justice Jay Sekulow everybody will broadcast. Picking up with this letter is to be a little bit of a recap of what's happened is that on our senior counsel, former Secretary of State and Dir. of the CIA. Mike Pompeo talking about both Iran and Cuba, and there is similarity and were talking about this from a policy perspective today and the reason I think it's important for you to understand why that is an issue for us is in addition to going to court. In addition to dealing with legislation, we issue policy position papers to members of Congress to others and then been on this because people were and I was texting you last night on another piece of legislation drives getting some questions from reporters and what was interesting to me is that people need understand that our policy positions that we advocate, we don't have the cave just over the airways, we advocate them directly to members that both on various bills or take policy positions you face-to-face J from from our staff to the membership from you to the members to the Senators also to the staff people are preparing recommendations for those who cast the votes and jamming. I think about it. On this particular day there. There are policy questions on the table for Congress right now on both of these issues that were talking about. I mean Anna Ron you just had today government spokesman for the Iranian regime admit that it is off the table for them. Restricting nuclear capacity will wasn't that in the very basis by which the United States was supposed to be engaging in a deal with them. So when we go to members of Congress, we remind them that that was what the administration told them NJ. The second piece of that is we don't just say this is the view of the ACLJ or this is this is our view.

We say this is the view of the people who put you into office and on the issue that you and I were discussing last night. There were literally thousands of members inside that state of that particular senator who wanted to make their voice heard. We were able to make that connection and show than it was actually his voters and wanted him to take this position and at the same time that were dealing with these issues of policy and and of course international issues policy were also I looked at our contacts.

What kind came in yesterday. Loving you did to their learning dozens every day of people calling in for legal assistance. Situations like I give you an example of a couple was having the Bible study in your house and the church on a Friday night they get excited no Bible studies the logic of a football party at a Super Bowl party became a Bible study and then I could go on and on and almost seemed there not the issue of the magnitude of Iran or Cuba.

They are big issues for freedom and liberty here in the United States and those get handled every day you don't hear about a lot. Maybe we need to be talking about that some or even saying that that's every single day.

So whether it's dealing with an issue as complicated as I read in Cuba or couple in Florida trend in their Bible study in their home. The ACLJ's.

There is very important for us to continue to have those conversations could truly to represent people and we do that each and every day getting your hear about it right in the goodness of the meeting be bringing aboard talking about more when there are big global issues actually want to make sure that your well-informed you understand how you can get involved in all those things are are very important to the work of the ACLJ are also working on a very granular level working on a very localized level for a lot of people. There's lawyers you did you know there's lawyers you don't know hundreds of people who are who are out there in the field working for you that's an ACLJ.org you can find out you read all out there but if you don't know that you could see the lot right from the website you could find that watch and listen to their blogs and read everything that come to the point. Now you find all the accounts on social media as well were going to go to that were also going to be taking calls in the next segment of the broadcast of you want to be.

So what we did buy Facebook, I think that's a great question and you just hit we have an fan is following up on this point.

Asylums being denied those coming over acute from Cuba right now. Today United States is denying asylum to people fleeing communist Cuba today so I'm going to Wes on this because it from a military your former or current United States Army but also from a policy standpoint we have to address this policy and one thing we can do affirmatively is to immediately communicate with the White House, and it may be that we draft the letter to the White House, but certainly the members of Congress to say, this policy has to change. Now the American people need to stand up and with one full voice make you bring this issue to the forefront and let the White House and our representatives in Congress know this is completely completely unacceptable is one thing to have the chaos in the disorder that we do on the southern border with people coming across literally by the thousands will be over a million people. By the end of the fiscal year September 30 and yet these are people that are 90 miles away under an oppressive regime who simply long for freedom. They are, they are our cousins. In many ways when it comes to to their longing for freedom and being so close to us.

They had the American people needed to let our representatives know this has to stop.

It has to stop now and Logan high cannabis because they are practical. If this was a critical question is what can we do and we need to engage.

So what is the next best thing we can do. What is the best thing we could do at this point with Congress.

Yet he really is on that asylum point is why we come back to it multiple times. J this is exactly why we have asylum laws in the United States is why the ACLJ in the ACLJ have engaged on asylum cases in the passenger J in order to get asylum in the United States, and I think it's important for Colleen to understand this, someone coming to the United States has to be able to demonstrate that they have credible fear for their lives or for their well-being. J. That is the exact definition of the people who are fleeing Cuba right now. Now one of the things you need to do to have an effective asylum process to have operational control of the border and that goes to Wes's point, but this is why what Sec. Majorca said to the Cuban refugees that if you arrive in a boat, you will be immediately returned, is exactly wrong. J what he should be saying.

He finally allowed to claim asylum and you will go through the process of where we get a new organ to communicate to Congress and to the White House what the current lies J we don't need a change in law we have a loss for this process and those refugees are to be able to utilize it.

Logan okay this also and I know you and will attractiveness that the media and the lack of coverage on this with the major media has been unbelievable and the fact is where work on the assignment matter immediately.

That's the legal side of working on that our government affairs office but there's also the media side of that one and fortunately we have a large platform, but this is the quietness that shut down if you will, on this has been breathtaking. Absolutely it's it's something that quickly came in with a few new cycle and see more people this posting live from events that I have this and sometimes it feels with the last few years. Maybe it is the protest in the demonstration of the week because there's always something going on.

There's always some reason if you go to your downtown metropolitan area. There is always a reason that there is a group of people out there protesting. But when you're with your right is why I was downtown a few weeks ago you had your young free Palestine movement happening downtown that got a lot of coverage a lot of people talking. That's as much as it is very important obsoletes Israel. It's it's the Palestinian people.

The Israeli people that August 7 report trust organization that is across the ocean to the Middle East. This is 90 miles away innocently get the car before you're practically done with the show, you could be there if this was the way we drive. So much so that people feel a little helpless and we saw that even last week that the Coast Guard had to put out a statement saying hey Americans quit taking your boats to Cuba is people just loading up their boats in Florida with supplies Cuba drop off supplies of get them to sleep that we don't condone that that's not legal, but the Coast Guard had passed, they would say hey you planning to go to Cuba don't go to jail for 10 years and $25,000 fine baby. If the target are the government. When asked to step up and not leave it to people who have just boats in Florida would have to be a lot of people who are willing to to go in support freedom of maybe they would need that. Let me think about the people you know it'll 30 kn an hour 35 kn an hour like you said your human no time. So why isn't the United States turning on the Internet. A real basic turn on the Internet to set up we converted on work in Guantnamo Bay. We have to do it remotely from from southern Florida. We are in Guantnamo Bay on the island that that that would be a simple thing to do. The President said the other day he was going to study that and see if there were anything that we could do that. That's just crazy. It is tepid is lame. That administration needs to step up to the plate, they really did this it will address this. I want our audience. Our members understand this web address this a stand said at the governmental level that is working to communicate with the house and the Senate and what the and let them know will put this in writing and within our team on it and put out an assignment letter what the asylum laws are the United States so that the secretary of homeland security to get an education is what the law actually is the legal part in the governmental affairs part of the same time, but we are also going to cover this and that's why we had our senior counsel Secretary of State for senators like Mike Pompeo on the broadcast today to let you know that we are addressing this from a policy perspective, a legal perspective in a governmental perspective because this is a Biden administration failure.

It's a failure in Iran were there saying they're not to sit back at the table, looking back is to be a nuclear capability limitation which was all point of why they were mostly doing this negotiation and then Cuba say nothing policy because some of your left members of your own party are in paper this points to the problem and that's why were taking action. But again, we got see media coverage on this.

I think it's it's vital media coverage covered you people sharing the people talking.

That's a really good spread the word will disappoint effectively got a couple phone calls today exactly you got engaged.

This is important to you or you don't. I feel he asked questions because you don't have this kind of show we talking about Cuba. We talked about big issues like Iran and how you can get involved in nodes give you another bit difficult engaged in what's happening globally I was that I said work we are engaged what's happening locally. The ACLJ is at work we have hundreds of lawyers in the field working on cases after case. We saw exhibit from yesterday from big to small. Doesn't matter with those in pro bono. We do it for free with these people know legal fees when you work with a suite when you come and get Rhapsody by the ACLJ but we can't do that again without the support of members of the ACLJ goes both ways.

It works works that you that way since ACLJ.org. You cannot only donate you get all of the great content that RT puts out we put out amazing content will come up on writing.

I appreciate everyone's right now on hold because right now you know that this is important. This is something that we should be talking about, you know that that as Christians, as concern is not just a strict American social conservative, you, it's what we do that we talk of humanitarian efforts, the governor of the around the world. That's why we're here as well so look at a religious freedom issue that so denied that the key of other characters is been unbelievable that it was against Christian community and Cuba there is a large Jewish community in Cuba and the suppression of these regimes on religious liberty are telling I think what Mike Pompeo said is when you see a regime or government florist. Usually that means going with that is religious liberty religious freedom that doesn't happen in Cuba we can change that. So we got.

This is a critical time for the ACLJ the work we simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge make a difference in the protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you. You forgive today online ACLJ secular go ahead and lead off with some of those let's go to kid telling a lie to kid there will thank you for taking my call this morning you needed more college so I called you appreciate okay well my I'm a little freighted with. Sometimes the Republicans in Congress. I'm a lifelong conservative groups are looking and I look at this situation going on in Cuba and I look at what's going on board okay with all the immigrants coming in and I go. Why can't the Republicans put forward some kind of resolution in either the Senate or the House that would allow these Cubans that might come over here to receive asylum and erase it erase it erase a very interesting question, and the fact is an end and then just alluded to this. It doesn't require change of law to do that to me that's the irony here.

It doesn't require a change of law thing and for that to happen asylum could be asylum proceeds could be implemented for those coming over from Cuba right now without changing the law at all, absolutely.

And that's what makes it so suspicious to secretary male workers would proactively J tell people that if they come by.

Both are to be turned away when he knows good and well that the asylum process was created for refugees like this and I think it's particularly rich that this is the first group of people J that suddenly he doesn't want to lead and I may look, I don't think it's necessarily unfair to characterize the Biden administration policy is one of essentially letting everyone in so why would it be that a group of refugees that would be naturally applicable for the asylum process as is written in current law doesn't take a new resolution date. Why is that the one that the secretary doesn't want tenant and look made.

Maybe I'm a cynic, but I think the political implications might be part of that Cuban-Americans do typically vote Republican. But lets you vote Republican, Democrat or independent. If you have credible fear for your life.

That's why the United States of America offers an asylum process and they ought to be afforded. It, like I said, going to the caller's question.

This doesn't require change in the law to do this. This is the law now just has to be enforced with organ work on this continuing takes more calls go to Roy in Utah right here in their backdrop. Will America they come over. They get so that's really what it is but I've nothing surprising in varsity we give the other issue to which is you got members of the Democratic Party that had our call itself socialist, so we may have a clip you will look good if we could let's play it as a clock is good for Bernie Sanders, this is just talking about the protesters and how your hopes are treated in Cuba. I personally hope that the government that will tolerate respect people's right to protest that he hopes will tolerate the respect that they regime would be regarding democracy and freedom and liberty would be coming in its place. Sanders is a socialist/if you think that connectable and every was in the debates was like to be around the debates we need to consider what will and that's part of the problem that were seen with the media focuses that some of the loudest voices that the media loves to get comment from our people like Bernie Sanders, AOC, who is blaming the United States for the condition of Cuba because of the embargo.

So part of the problem of not getting the media attention on this is that the people they're going to for comment are a little bit sympathetic to the regime itself, which is another reason why it's very good that we at the American Center for Law and Justice are on, you know, almost a thousand radio stations on multiple social media platforms and broadcast five days a week because as I said part of what we do is the policy you notate with a heavy emphasis on policy seen on this program the merging of policy and action. We have a policy we have a position asylum should be utilized for those coming in from Cuba. It's not that is now the official Department of Homeland Security position asylum will not be utilized. So what we do, we immediately activate twofold what is we activate as a relates to the White House and then on to Congress and to the Department of Homeland Security and I'd like to know I'm not saying we should do a FOIA on this but maybe why is it that the decision was made that when it came to Cuba to draw the line human refugees company that states that Florida say no.

Asylum explained that to me. I like to know the rationale that went into that discussion was continuing to kill her calls go to live in California like what Linda Mankiw, I own mind and psyche about this whole thing of course.

I think humans in their country and their persecution) trip that I felt I am overwhelmed by That I thought yesterday they beating Gates to get entire country and threatening like me and let me. I deserve to be in there and there, and now we are taking favor lighting hundred 10 people and these people are from Haiti and gone and they were here they were interviewed activate when is young single men and they were deciding more on land and said they were still crossing the river and a headline hundreds of people cry. You have to realize in kind have to start moving what's justifiable asylum was not that's a discussion we had discussed were having currently which is when does it become more than just someone try to cross the border illegally. I know that it is kind of you here maybe you don't quite fully understand the difference is that a cellular that which is everyone in general, because you hear odious particular people that were on the other side saying hey when you protect our borders.

So how do we reconcile that and I would add is a from something because the wall does reconcile it. I mean the law is in place in the United States we have in this asylum process. So if someone is fleeing their country of origin because of oppression to them because of their government. We have a process for asylum. Now Wes is legally trained as well, and that process should be implemented. The problem is West homeland security director decided he was in the draw the line in the sand as it relates to Cuban refugees coming in were seeking asylum. We have an asylum law that would actually protect them yeah exactly and it is so so crazy but sometimes when the Biden ministration in their officials like sick. Secretary male workers when they should say something they don't, and when they really need to keep quiet. They make a statement like that is just as if the cave system of policies by this administration and we really, really neat.

We need changes we need for them to rethink where they are on this but we need to do is take action and that's what were doing at the American Center for Law and Justice at the ACLJ whether it's through this broadcaster. Whether it's for a government affairs outreach will demand the asylum must be followed in the United States is working to demand your support of the ACLJ makes that happen where the matching challenge month and you see all of the coming together here very nicely welded policy action legal and also governmental all at the same time, you find more information on this make your donation during our matching challenge right now.
