Breaking news employees will explain what it means you informed. Now mass no longer acquire pending this better will you bow your home. This is again important as you become election of consequences and symbols consequences last longer than how long someone is in office, especially when it comes to present United States because they make judicial appointments that are lifetime appointments and this is a district court judge out of Florida.

The Tampa area Catherine Mizelle who put this ruling in the place.

I read the conclusion for you, quote it's indisputable that the public is a strong interest in combating sporadic over 19 in pursuit of that in the CDC issued the mass mandate I want to remind everybody right now mass mandate on these places of travel not put in place until January 31 of 2021 so during the beginning of covert. This was done mass mandates were decided by individual businesses.

So are the airports themselves would decide that the the actual airlines would decide in this resource done a more localized level. And, of course, to this day you can you can still decide if you want to wear a mask.

Of course you can. When you are on an airplane. No one is forcing you to take your mask off but what we saw was widespread support from all of the airlock major airlines. People were, they were literally going through the halls of airplanes that while the airplane last night and taking people's mess throw away at me. This is of the. The major airlines have asked. They wanted to return to normalcy. They were battered during the first couple years of coping when there was so little travel. Now they're coming back. This elicited the safest places to be his airlines. It affects more than that to.

It affects again trains sub sub modes of transportation on water as well, but I will continue on with the conclusion from this case.

So in pursuit of that in the CDC issued the mass mandate but the mandate exceeded the CDC statutory authority will talk about that a little bit what this judge found there, which was interesting improperly evoked a good cause exception to notice and comment rulemaking that's get the administrator procedures act and failed to adequately adequately explained his decisions because our system does not permit agencies to act unlawfully even in the pursuit of desirable ends. The court declares unlawful and vacates the mass mandate we saw immediate reaction only your calls about this 1-800-684-3110. That's 100-6431 10 euros as a parent of young children of the, the, that whole idea of how to keep those mask on them. You know how to do that and then you're getting thrown off lights.

If you can't do it. There were consequences here and it was not so a lot of times that was a people people had medical conditions that should wear a mask in the first place.

This whole idea that again no one can force you not to take a mass that date of this world. Facebook is this real no more mask on airplanes really yes it is real down airline could still come back and say were going to require that the private business.

So far all the major airlines big names.

They ended the mandate like while the flights were in error and you see maybe the videos of the flight attendants walking down the aisle of the plane crash in people's mess, so you also saw was almost universally super sub liberals crying out online which you get they can wear their mask. They want universally people saying thank you off the mass came off the corporate America was also in line with the average American everyday America. All of us that the normal folks out there and I get will take your calls on a 100-684-3110. The beginning of the end of these mandates the American Center for Law and were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad defending religious freedom to those for their faith without your support for that. We are grateful to others an opportunity for you to help in the way was $20, $50 gift becomes 100 constitutional and religious freedoms are most important to you when you forgive today online 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 created three powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission will show you how you are personally sealed secure means to serve in many ways your membership powering the right question for you/you hear the case was titled, health, freedom, defense fund versus Joseph R by his official capacity as President of the United States. This vacated the mask mandate immediately, and we saw the reactions to this immediately as well, and I asked this question as well.

Do you not just about the airlines is not just about travel, but you believe this is the beginning of the end of these mandates that because worse even when we see these in a new variance now and occasionally people get it seems like it's a much more mild and that's a good thing.

There were, learning to live with this and it's time to move on and I think these kind of steps referred to as the Biden administration didn't immediately come out and say were going to take this appeal, emergency appeal to the appellate court, they still could go early the morning next morning. That's why think this is still news you got a cover carefully because they still could decide to appeal this on an emergency basis. They can be writing it right now as we speak, but then they get into a mess because they're also trying to drop the title 42 protection board, you see how this all ties together regular supported numbers.

Later the broadcast. They are staggering want to share this broadcast difference in family so people are informed and they understand what the dropping of this mass mandate needs it.

You know, and the airlines were were begging the administration for this, but also it it it involves the airports themselves and other other methods of of travel so I get I places like Amtrak. These other decisions now.

Businesses could still decide they want to have it.

I don't think there's many left it that will outside of the medical world in hospitals and doctors offices. To some extent but outside of that, you had these industries saying first baldly regulated themselves. It was the Biden administration came in in January 2021 and forced this this guidance on people and what we say, in the opinion where it says that the of that CDC does have this authority really seizes upon this idea that the CDC want to expand his authority needed to explain but if you were to give it deference. It's not there.

There really more about sanitation and keeping property items clean. How do you keep a your business place clean. What kind of filter systems should you use, not a mask itself doesn't is in a cleaning device so that's part of where rest on then it also rests on the fact that they try to do this in emergency way, which an invite and go around the administrative procedures act, which requires certain dates and times and comment periods and that they said they'd have the authority to do that. So ultimately they're losing on all accounts and the question is, who do they fight back the phone number talk to us on heirs 100-684-3110 at 2064 310 Gary W-2 possesses a political decision election-year dims the good things happen. Keeping power. This is not a political decision. This was the judicial branch telling the Biden administration. You don't have the authority to require these mask on this federal court where you got federal oversight of travel. So that's airlines sub sub sub travel ball on on waterways and also of course you know some of the railways. It's not everything, because sub is controlled by your state like the subway systems and things like that are controlled differently, a 100-684-3110 if you were to talk to us on air Cisco tablets are to get people's questions from California online one, a tip like all so thankful of the judgment, the right decision to wear the mask mandate to mandate unconstitutional. Now what do I have to do to thyroid paratransit and they required to wear a mask done constitutional order have to do it could let them know a market where mask if that's controlled by state under the authority of your state or under sortie like a city municipality that this is not just this ruling does not apply to them. This applies to the CDC and federal where the federal government had control so if you're living in a in a state or a city that is still requiring this you will you will not get relief from this or not. So you cannot file a lawsuit.

This particular you could doubt you got some some more pressing here but also this, that the second part of that is remember nothing that this judge did forced Delta Air Lines took her tubes to announce you know on its flights.

Take a mask off that business could still say we we think it's in our best interest to have these mascot if you wanted travel with us, you need to you need to where it hears the limits. Here's the age here's the requirements so that think they could've done that.

What is astonishing here is that when we usually talk about the big corporate world, especially the big public facing companies. We see a lot of woke culture lately and not on this issue not of this issue. They were they were ready to go. In fact, I would take Crystal skull at a Nevada online to a crystal welcome to secular yearly air. All were good or little or no high-ranking fellow parlor and will maintain own, or coming up with. No matter what navel I had just heard about it with our neighbor talk to for second here because this and this happened immediately and releases quickly is because as soon as it was announced and it was kind of clear that the mass to come off the mask came off overwhelmingly. Most people said I don't want to see more and so did the corporations like that the company work for Crystal a little lock on one Eric it's always good actually report their people from other countries were that's more common and see people airport pretty regularly, specially airport to get a lot of international travel.

People who decide to do that.

That's a personal decision. I've no problem with that. If peoples are immunocompromised, they need to continue our mass. They feel like they do if they feel better, but great. Go ahead. That's it again give the corporations the flexibility like if there is some real issue with this down the road or a note get. I don't think you know with covert it seemed like these right now even with his new parents are not as intense but let's say they do get more intense. These companies did the right thing. Well before Job. I was present and now they're asked to do the right thing here after the Biden nutrition possibly say we want to keep Americans mask father traveling but were not going to worry about illegal border crossing was by the way the numbers are just that they release the numbers get this at the same time. All the mass mandate info is coming up so you were getting as much coverage on how insane it is our southern border right now and out of control of these numbers are working to get into all those numbers we could back in excitement. The broadcast were you to take your phone calls on the mass mandate also on the immigration issue week we get to that, but I do think it's important that you know that you all understand that with the mass mandate specifically specifically did not come in place under like the Trump administration was answers been around for three years at this federal level is of the Biden administration did which the.

The airlines themselves had been good but started to oppose a couple months ago and would testify before Congress Lillian Paul in North Carolina online, for he Paul is a dog model. Reframing a privately held, go back to North America mandate but airlines technically are not because they are arbitrated and they do receive funding from the federal government. They still are not government entities. So I think that the NAR elicits while they are publicly traded their companies to get to make decisions themselves, so there is a difference between the government saying okay you don't have to do this anymore, but the company say what we want you to and that's the that is a very big legal difference.

So again whether companies publicly traded, whether private company they get to make decisions on that so would again the non-government out there is what were talking about here. You don't even have to get into the specifics of other publicly traded. It's the company could set rules that it feels our best practice for them.

They didn't have to immediately say everybody for your escort. They could said we had to take some time on this gets more legal and an analysis on this figure out where the Biden ministrations going before we start, I get asked to do that instead to what we saw, and I think was a good thing for the countryside in mass people say it's time you are ready to throw the mask away, but it is explaining to everybody, hope out there that the balance between where the federal government does have control where the states and municipalities have control. So like a subway system in New York. This is not affect New York. This case would not affect New York or the reasoning behind it because it was bouts of federal federal act, but also again is not forcing companies to take on or not use a policy they decided you know what were not in force.

We don't want it when I can foresee more.

They were here to Paul's point. They were doing this on their own.

They didn't have to have the federal government telling them they could do it.

They were already doing their single part of the requirement to flatter airlines you follow our rules.

Here's one of the rules they were doing that well before the Biden administration tried to mandate this viewer talk to us on our questions.

100-684-3110 at 2000 684-3110 remains the immigration issue as well. If you haven't seen these numbers. Most people probably have not yet because it came at the same time as this mask issue. They are staggering and putting us on what just a very dangerous path. Our southern border drugs with human trafficking, a migrant crisis of humanitarian crisis towns and cities that are being overrun and were right on that track was to know what you're paying attention to that support orcaaclj@aclj.org double the impact your donation if you can donate right now if you financially able to ACLJ.org building today 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 three powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission will show you how you are personally sealed actions of secure means to serve the many ways your membership powering the right/the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those face covering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life reports and in Congress ACLJ for that.

We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help in the way. $20, $50 gift becomes 100 constitutional and religious freedoms most to you when you forgive today to secular. We are to your phone calls to 100 684 31 Tim and begin reef judge's opinion before it's the immigration issue will take your calls on on this when the mass mandate questions to your questions about what this means, give us a call in most your hypotheticals right after we give you pretty clear answer even though this case is came out last night when he hundred 684-3110. Remember the ACLJ we were on the front and center representing the heritage foundation on the business vaccine mandate. In those cases, number hundred or more employees and you had to check your employees Juergen have to keep a register of each week of all these different employees and and who is this and who was that an and that we want in in federal court all the way to the US Supreme Court accepting the idea here folks.

I I think your Circe at nation turn the tide doesn't mean the rest of the world to be with us and it can certainly be different depending on where you live in the country. That's what federalism is all about your state very different than my home home state, 1-800-684-3110 if you got questions about what this judicial decision means for mask mandates, one 864 3110 but if you read from the opinion hears. It was clear the CDC issued a mass mandate because it has the public has it has a strong interest in combating the sporadic over 19. The mandate exceeded the CDC's statutory authority improperly evoked a good cause exception to notice and comment rulemaking that the ministry of procedures act and failed to adequately explain its decisions that also decided this wasn't some gray area with the CDC discipline Chevron deference as this wasn't just a gray area where then you favor the government's interpretation that when you really look at what the CDC has authority to do it's like surface cleaning. You know if you're if something or touch or what kind of cleaning solutions you need in certain areas or air filtration systems bio airplanes have some of the most there. Some of the safest places to be. It was hard. I think for people to keep wrap their head around that the science there but because of the air filtration system that are inside airplanes.

It was the entire time during this pandemic. One of the safest place to be with a group of people because of the filtration system that's in the system goes on to say because our system does not prevent agencies CDC to act unlawfully even in pursuit of desirable if the court declares unlawful and vacates the mass mandate. Let me go to Marie's question into the sea online to Avery. Welcome to secular you're on the air all all personal delay but add not like they can and another in the light direction tape finally getting rid of game that they will mandate even though the Supreme Court ruled for big investment over 100 people in working rate to let cattle 40 K bar. He still had private business. In the clinic today who are requiring that thing mandate drop everything else private businesses and and you see the legal challenge that their very different challenges at the state level. Now that is interesting. Supreme Court becomes the military threat. Another case yesterday at the US Supreme Court did not get to consider it about a vaccine mandate for people in the military so that's where he goes kind of federally now when you try to private businesses. Again they get to make decisions. Now most of them have exceptions within almost all of them do it because they have exceptions for people who either are immuno compromise can take a vaccine or have some religious objection to it have procedures in place if they are still going to mandate this. I do think this does though into the bigger picture.

It does as a country is important, like mentally how you look at things as a country up and pushes us, for we can suite we now know have the technology we have that medicine with the medical capability with vaccine. We have all these things to combat covert and we can move forward as an and get this return to normalcy types of folks if depending on where you live, you party, had a return to normalcy, and it was kind of obeyed when you at the airport.

It was like you do this again, but you had a return to normalcy us. If you are in red states you're deeply blue states. You still have a return there in the federal courts aren't the ones there to force that that's can be have to be decisions, state and local level and that's the way our government is supposed to work.

I love you for a minute in Washington DC.DC rightly within existing report of her friction and bring in Fox News. They were at DCA, which is that airport right inside right across from the District of Columbia is the closest airport to the nation's capital is right there in Virginia and I that she study about 90% of people there still still had mascot. They weren't being forced to do it, but they did it and I think that's could be a lot you can cut us pick where you are in the country and it's gonna be different based off that I think there's a lot of virtue singly going on with the Washington DC crowd. What I more to see is what happens in places like LA or New York and those codices where if most people on those flights and in those airports are tossing it to one is perfectly appropriate. Read your name and if you we are all about freedom. So if you want to wear a mask in certain situations, or you are immuno compromised.

Absolutely you should be able to do that same thing with a vaccine should be able to take it, you should build and not take it. The Jordan II will tell you, even in a place like Washington DC where maybe a higher percentage will continue to wear the mask. It was still very interesting to me that the DC transit authority did almost immediately drop their mat there mandate for mask wearing on the Metro on DC buses are really the same as the airlines did so I think it comes back to the fact that so many of them were actually relying on the CDC and they had said for so long that the reason they have this mandate in place is because the CDC was requiring us when it got thrown out. They really did have to bend to the will of their consumers look look. Consumers may choose to wear it. But even here Jordan. Even in Washington DC, consumers were ready for the forced wearing at the end. And so that has happened today that that's interesting to because you got a federal local mix there Washington DC but they must've felt like because that because of that mix. This head of further the bigger requirement on them. They would like the New York that the MTA and met Metro transit authority there.

Things like that. But what is important here to note what Dan said is you start to see the shift.and the worry of immigration in second-half hours have time to get to the center, but let me just take these numbers are shocking. So keep them with us having just absolutely shocking and then I will tied to this real quick.

I think the toughest thing about administrations got here to explain, is there dropping title 42, which was the pandemic rule for our board which allowed for quicker expulsions and empowered our border patrol agents and I say just to get things done quickly how you drop that and then also fight to keep Americans mask on airline to be very interesting in the Jordan because even at yesterday's press conference Jen Saki said that the ruling was disappointing.

Well it is disappointing or they can appeal that everything appeal that because the pandemic is still raging, and so they need this mandate. If they do that Jordan. How in the world are they gonna turn around and say were also going to continue to abandon title 42, because there is no pandemic. There is no problem.

There's just not a consistency in this policy drag. I'll tell you this is not about the pandemic anymore. This is about a narrative. This is about appealing to certain demographics within their voter base. It's not based on the science they're going to ask you have to be both one direction or the other but right now Jordan that's not where they're at right folks again.

What is the by administration to do and they set themselves up for these disasters said the whole time to put these pandemic mandates on people and drop it for the southern border. We back this break when you hear the numbers of the southern border, which by the way they released right with his case started breaking last night right with a new start coming out about all they they released border numbers are concentrated very off this in the bad news away, but were getting out there and that is part of what we do for this broadcast is get you the truth get you the the actual information and explain it so that you take away something broadcast portal work@aclj.org. The American civil injustice 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 $10 gift becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 checking the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you and your family.

You forgive today online keeping you informed and now Jordan secular to secular to your phone calls to if you choose about this mass mandate case that does is it what it would federal court rules.

This way it does open up a lot of questions people have. We saw interestingly enough with TSA and the airlines quickly drop these mandates and in some cities like like there was talk about the Washington DC transportations as systems. They are like the Metro. I then buses in an transit so there you have one issue, then you've got what happens in New York with the subway or out LA with with a met a Masters with any kind of transportation in this.

This does not directly affect those they still you know you still have a locality that has control in states that have control. See if you had to go and look at each one and see if they they might still take a decision like this and say well because of this decision where I could do this anymore. There are some places where it it it actually has a requirement to drop in other places where Xers can.

I think encourage people to drop. Now what were also getting into the second half of the broadcast. Hope you if you watch the broadcast share with your friends and family. Whether you're watching on rumble on Facebook or YouTube.

Again, I encourage you to click that chair, but because the news on immigration is also just staggering and family gives us more. The next segment of the broadcast overseeing the highest number last month since Joe Biden took office of of the actual people encountered at the southern border that does not include an estimate of how many people got through without being encountered by federal agents during this is unbelievable listening these numbers in the much of the month of March. The customs and border protection's a border patrol so that they encounter 221,303 migrants.

Jordan that's 28% higher than last March and get this. This is what I think of the most telling comparison is it's 6 1/2 times what it was in March 2022 years ago so not to say that there is still a record number surging at the border and that there is still a crisis on our border, I think would be an understatement. Jordan look it's just get a compound if the track that were on right now continues because we we touched on this just a bit in the last segment of the broadcast.

But the current plan is to walk away from title 42 removals which which accounted for almost 100,000 over that stretch their Jordan. I mean you're talking about numbers that we've never ever seen before we for talking about intentionally not enforcing intentionally not removing and they were gonna layer on top of that laying down an authority that is existing in statute for removals at the border. So we have a mounting crisis and it is heading in only one direction. If anyone thinks that this is going away without a change in policy. These numbers should should really concern you. Gabby folks we go through this.

I think your be shocked but also I you know what to expect at the this administration, but you know it's getting to a point. I think Texas by doing what Texas is doing is setting up a potential court challenge against the Supreme Court and since we had that Arizona case where the Supreme Court decided that deal because the Constitution base of article 1 of the Constitution, the legislative powers. This is immigration and borders control is up to the federal government.

States do not play a role unless the federal government really deputize as a brings them in to the process but we have a different court now. We also have even a longer record of just the crisis is that this is a this is happening. I sensed a border crisis but it's a crisis for the states who are taking in the vast majority of the of these individuals who are coming into the southern border and its again the pandemic there was with title 42 are at least our agents were able to act more quickly now by this administration.

They been demonized, hampered, and that the last remaining power they had really canceled all the other trumpet ministration policies were over that even policies on human trafficking, but they also they also removed title 42 protection they want to keep. They were in court fighting to keep you mask on an airplane while at the same time saying illegal migrants at the southern border should not be explained or snapping expulsion program because of a pandemic in our country and the world to your phone calls of 160, or 31 tin house immigration. These issues affecting you in your community. Love to hear those reports of people understand and support the work of ACLJ were in a matching challenge month, double the impact your donation ACLJ.org the American Center for Law and were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those who face covering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy and fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress ACLJ to support for that. We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help in the way.

$20, $50 gift becomes 100 constitutional and religious freedoms most to you when you forgive today 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 three powerful publication offering a panoramic view of ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission life will show you how you are personally sealed secure means to serve in many ways your membership powering the right/questions about this. 164, 31, two, 312. That's 100-684-3110. So Margaret encounters in March southern border top 221,000. The highest number since Joe Biden took office just put these in perspective the customs and border protection's. They said the court filing on Friday at 221,303 migrants were encountered at the southern border in March so statistically that's approximately 28% higher than March 2020, 21, when there were 173,000 migrants encounter.

Then you go back to March 2020 trumpet years, 34,000 34,000.

That's a lot of encounters. That's not 221,000 mL the policies by the trumpet ministration. The tone the idea that we are not we were going to send you back remain in Mexico operation town. All those issues didn't stop all illegal migration. Of course not that that's why the wall was being built to assist in that I to stop more of the illegal migrant immigration but also but you can see in the numbers itself how your tone how your policies how supporting border patrol and ice. Instead of demonizing them does turn the numbers around doesn't mean it's per I met still a very high number but it's nothing like 221,000 and that's the people actually have encountered it's engaged with.

That does not mean that Sun estimate happy people got through without being encountered. But the numbers they think it worst that it bigger than any of the numbers last year, even when you got to the summer months where you see the highest amount of border crossing illegal border crossing, especially under this administration. It peaked at 213,000 so still again, this is over. This is the first one of the first months of the year where it's warm enough where you start seeing these caravans and the human smugglers.

The traffickers coyotes actually try to utilize the process and so that's what they're doing here and to search see the numbers that stick up.

So if you're already in March, higher than where you were. In July of last year and are dropping one of the key protections. Title 42, was a regular thing but in a Baptist, I think there's a lot of question about is that going to be dropped or not, because there is some push some serious pushback only if they been right now unwashed receipt. Then there that we would talk, but that little bit today. We talked about previous broadcast.

There is mounting opposition to removing the title 42 cool that enabled our border agents to more quickly expel people that are sure is Jordan into happening on a bipartisan basis in the United States Senate. Look, I have no doubt that the Biden administration is planning to walk away from title 42 enforcement.

I think they will do it unless someone stops them in and how do you stop in Jordan. You would you would have to statutorily seat up to pass a law that says you can't do it well.

James Langford and Kiersten Cinema and a number of others. By the way, actually I think it's worth leaning reading this list or this is the list of senators who introduced us in this legislation and actually lived there. Building on support since then. Here's the list James Langford Kiersten Cinema John Cornyn, Mark Kelly, of course, he's up for election in Arizona John Thune Joe mansion Shelley Moore O John tester, Rob Portman, Maggie Hassan and Tom Tillis have introduced a piece of legislation Jordan that this makes perfect sense right. It would require that all covert, 19 related national states of emergency, be lifted before title 42 is officially terminated said this goes back to the conversation that you and I just had about did the CDC mask mandate Jordan. If it makes sense that that they are going to appeal that ruling and they say that there should still be a mask mandate on American citizens then how in the world can they say that there is no pandemic.

No emergency at the border and they're gonna walk away from title to 42 enforcement and yet that is exactly what they're saying now. Can this past Jordan.

I think if it came up in the United States Senate. I do think it would clear the 60 votes needed to pass in the United States and then of course you got the question of the United States house. I don't think that Speaker Pelosi would schedule a vote. However, if 218 members of the United States house were to sign a discharge petition. She had no choice.

She would have to put the legislation on the floor of the house and Jordan. I think if this piece of legislation actually came to a vote. United States house. I think it would pass them in. This is because in the house yet everybody's up for reelection.

The city at about 1/3 of people up for electricity.

Open seats mixed in there as well. Certainly the house received about 30 Democrats a retire but III did agree with that.

I think that that the the there's agreement that this is the wrong time to remove this program without a backstop that you know if it if were really truly coming on the pandemic and that's what the ministration believes one stop fighting in court over the mass mandate you put in place a year ago that airlines were already dealing with and had come to the conclusion and told the federal government. We think this needs to end by the ministration ignored that up, but then on on this issue where they want to remove title 42 that I would see this if you were so sick let's get this pandemic mindset before you remove title 42, you have okay what are we to replace this with where we can do what you with all the policies and the trumpet ministration had the policies in place like remain in Mexico in these agreements with other countries. They had ago they had policies empowered our border patrol in our agents when Scout lettered fan from a Congressman Jim Jordan to Sec. Merrill kiss of homeland security. He's finally agreed to testify before the committee and this is what they want basically is what is the plan here.

A. What about when what programs are you running to actually protect the border and conversely, what programs are you running to make the border more ports you he's right on to be asking us questions that testimonies can happen in April 28. The House Judiciary Committee and look this is the man that has to have a plan. He's the Sec. of Homeland security.

He's the one that's got have it and look. Title 42, Jordan, as you know it it's a tool. It is a tool available for the Department of Homeland Security to handle a pandemic situation and to remove people crossing at the border in the month of March we read this before but I just want to give people what's at stake here in the month of March. There were 109,549 removals expulsions under title 42, so when Sec. my work is comes before the House Judiciary Committee, Jordan, that is the very first question I would ask him okay you can walk away from title 42 enforcement we know by the very numbers that one of your agency said, as reported, you have about 110,000 every single month that up until now you were removing under title 42, Mr. Sec., what is your plan for handling those hundred and 10,000 migrants every single month Jordan.

As of now, we haven't seen a plan for that he should answer that question. On April 28 we talked yesterday on the broadcast. But the 23 people were apprehended last year there were on the terawatts was they were actually apprehended. So you begin with all these yet to then asked the question.

Happy people aren't being apprehended because they're so overwhelmed at the southern boredom. If you get 220,000 people you're encountering in a month. How many people could you not have the resources to encounter them to put that in quotes because that that can mean a lot of different things. This appeared to see Aston Saki about the terror issue and the people who were getting away with them according to claim three evil apprehended is four 2021 are on a pair of lifeless think this is the terawatts was like get into the United States. Well, I can't make an assessment that the what I can tell you is that your data you're saying here means the border patrol was doing her job anyway so the people at the border in 2000 illegal and the rest of the day got away their resentment. A few dozen annual encounters that most at most Chinese encounters represent significantly less than the .01% of total encounters per fiscal year. In recent years, but I know these individuals. The 23 people at the border patrol they stop them they prevented them from getting to the country there protecting our homeland.

Keeping a safe that's wonderful talking points if they don't give them that the backing to really do their job. We we see that from reports from border patrol agents and ice ages. But think about that other number. The 2000 a day fan that just get through and so yeah that they're not all terrorists most the people are looking for a better economic situation, but it doesn't mean again that they should be cutting people online who waiting in line for that purpose and either come from all over the world was to research that more and more the southern border would you get 2000+ today who you know that's their estimate of their not being encountered are not being stopped and she tries to say I don't know why the tears want to get here, but these two absurd statement your numbers together and you realize we have no idea who's in our country, but we do know their people in our country who want to do us harm. Weaving a 2000 numbers incredibly low Jordan because God always mean they were on their radar. Maybe they saw. Then they picked them up on surveillance.

They pursued them but they weren't able to catch them. What about the people to cross the never got on your radar. What if you never pick them up on surveillance with they never cross the path of the border patrol agent Jordan. None of those figures are in these numbers. I also think it's incredibly nave probably intentionally nave Jordan to talk about how there aren't any terrorists that invaded these numbers.

Jordan, when you when you're on the terror watch list. You are skilled, proficient and actually practiced at trying to evade law enforcement soak in the got a ways in and the ones that never make it onto the radar's during the percentage of those who are to be on the terror watch list. Virtually guarantee you the percentage of them can be higher on that list than on the ones that were detained folks were fighting on this issue are fighting federal court on this issue to secure our borders to get information that you need. Why is it ministration drop policies that will work our sense is that it really just because what we were down from the policy stating care if you're working or not or secrete a better humanitarian situation support the work. The ACLJ were to match encountering out donate@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 three powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission will show you how you are personally sealed here means to serve the many ways your membership powering the right/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 in the way. $20, $50 gift becomes 100 constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you when you forgive today we pit. Of course the mask issue and to give you an example to what came out like an airport. This is Nashville's airport be in a listed leadership at Nashville's came out in the evening yesterday around 5 o'clock Eastern time leadership at Nashville national Airport's mantra developments this this morning's federal court ruling overturning facemask requirements for travelers being a understated TSA is not currently appealing the security of that the court's ruling their forts and being A's understanding that there is no longer mass requirement check in with your carriers regarding the airline specific requirements.

There's a difference tween again where the federal role is where the management of the airport's role is enforced in the airline it sells role so you got is complicating factors. But what is clear is that the major airlines. The mass came off so I did that with gratitude that we have. He's just staggering immigration numbers. I mean we talk about retirement. Second, what an update on what's happened Ukraine you think about the Russian invasion. There, the amount of people there encountering at the southern border are more than the Russian soldiers who of incident Ukraine a month. So think about what the what our country is having to deal with people ice the strains on your infrastructure, the strains on your gender justice system, which are already there. The courts strays on your policing. Your local communities. This is not a number that just quietly disperses.

So I get when we talk about these issues. I think it's always important to keep those numbers in perspective as well. I wanted to look to Wes Smith every west of first we continue to see violence in Israel suite we saw a rash of of most gun attacks that we haven't seen in years. There is skill just a matter of a few weeks with with I think of 60 people got killed there.

Now we see more of a rocket fire as out of the Hamas -controlled Gaza Strip and Israel having to respond. These aren't big the number one news right now because we got war in in in Europe right now is still a very volatile part of the world and Israel remains under under threat. Your 24 seven 365.

What happened this past weekend, the Jewish celebration of Passover, the Christian celebration of Easter coincided and is ready please were escorting your religion to religious tourists into the Temple Mount area Palestinian youth begin throwing stones at the police and that Doris please respond with rubber bullets and tear gas. Hamas and Islamic Jihad began to issue threats and, of course, fired the rocket into Israeli airspace usual responded by attacking some Hamas targets where there were no people just to send a message to knock it off and stop. Here's the thing. Here's the broader picture.

A ran is still a threat to Israel into the peace in the region. They support and train both Hezbollah and Hamas, and on Monday while all this was going on, Jordan, and this rocket is fired.

The Iranian President President E. Brahim, Tracy Rossi said that Ayn Rand will strike at the heart of Israel. That's his quote if if Israel does anything to interfere with what's going on and ran what is going on and ran there in negotiations in Vienna. There are what they are really really moving rapidly towards acquiring a nuclear weapon.

Pres. Biden is is really considering lifting sanctions on a ramp and meanwhile Israel has vowed they will not allow Iran to to acquire a nuclear weapon. So this is this volatile background and and what's interesting about this is Israel under threat trying to defend itself around trying to get a nuclear weapon, Israel actually has improved relations with all the Arab countries in the region something the Biden administration ignores Ayn Rand they resent the day improved relations situation because the truck administration did it. It's like they don't want to capitalize on.

They could be Like they could be beating their own victories at those Abraham records economically for US when it came to the oil issue they want to get the sallies took to pop more. Instead of leveraging that they just cut they've been a big shot. The sallies in a position where they they were saying no I were not going to do that and that's because they don't trust of the minister.

This administration is going to make good on those Abraham records the security requirements that came with those records well but what you are seeing is the Gulf states that were part of that and Israel continue to build on those records so they're not waiting for the Biden administration do something about it.

It's good for their people.

So there doing that and to turn to the 54th day of the war in Ukraine. Most people didn't think we would get to the 54th day. If Russia decided to invade at the way they did, but we are there now. We talked about and what people he. Is that Russia has as kind of put their assets of they've they've kind of reset up to an attack on Eastern Ukraine are looking towards a key date in May. There their victory day from World War II that they celebrate with the marches down my debt that Red Square in the military sword start, we appear to be on the edge of seeing a new Russian offensive yeah as metric. Actually yesterday the Russian forces launched a brand-new campaign in Eastern Ukraine in the Don best region. They have new 76 of what they call their Battalion tactical groups into the area translates to about 60,000 soldiers that they moved from the northern part of Ukraine into Eastern Ukraine. They have lost a new offensive and what is interesting is that while there doing this in Eastern Ukraine.

They have continued to bombard cities all over Ukraine including cities that are 40 miles from the Polish border in Western Ukraine. They it is like a softening up campaign. Russia is trying to deplete Ukraine's air defense systems, and so they are they are launching attacks all over Ukraine. But meanwhile, on the ground and used Eastern Ukraine. They've launched this brand-new offensive. One interesting development about the Russia trying to to diminish Ukraine's air defenses it was reported yesterday by our Pentagon that we have started issuing howitzers and training to Ukrainian soldiers, not just regular artillery rounds the Army has developed what they call a high velocity for projectile HBP. This is a round fired from a traditional canon, a howitzer, but it can take down cruise missiles. It can take down aircraft and we are now providing those two Ukraine trying to give them some air defense systems so level of the weaponry. The fish I received because the city was a big point yesterday was an we had been kind of putting together for them in these weapon ships and we were part of and maybe spending money on, but they were there they were a lot of Soviet air weapons that they were more used that that they were trained on. They knew how to use so we are going to the former Soviet bloc countries, and say it will fund you. This will replenish your weapon supply now exceeding answer the criminal called an escalation date and in this is going to be an interesting way to see the response to the US because the now weaponry it's American-made weaponry that is not going to be going into Ukraine. Yet, this is this is new is a new development were providing them with with US weapons and the training to fire those weapons and that is that is not happened thus far. Until now, in our support of Ukraine final question on this website now were in the 54th day we see Russia repositioning relaunching attacks yesterday focusing on Eastern Ukraine but also wish to receive the missile text like like you said all over and places where they were even. But every time people say that they hit somewhere far off just like Levine. I think it was your site, which is been kind of a sanctuary city within Ukraine and and that seven people got killed with the missile attack every time you think they're moving the one area they'd still remind you they can hit anywhere they want with their air capabilities in the in there their ammunitions capabilities. Also, they double down now. I think by saying okay were to reorganize and restart this conflict.

They're not going anywhere and know the Russian way of war is still to target hospitals, churches, civilian population centers.

They're continuing to do that and obviously violating the laws of war, committing more crimes as we speak to him if his foes in the arts. That situation you take all the politics out of it should be a lot more be done at the international level. In the conflict. It just seems like internationally.

The powers just aren't there. Either they can coalesce and come together. The US is certainly not leading leading the way under the Biden ministration support the work of ACLJade ACLJ.org of your impact matching challenge month the entire month of April.
