RUSH TRANSCRIPT You rolled ░░░░░░░░ a major plan to ░░░░░░░░ African Americans this week ░░░░░░░░ re calling it the ░░░░░░░░ Douglas plan and one ░░░░░░░░ plank is cutting the ░░░░░░░░ of incarcerated individuals in ░░░░░░░░ United States in half ░░░░░░░░ vast majority of prisoners ░░░░░░░░ the United States of ░░░░░░░░ are not under federal ░░░░░░░░ as I m sure ░░░░░░░░ know So how would ░░░░░░░░ make that happen It ░░░░░░░░ true that a lot ░░░░░░░░ this is playing out ░░░░░░░░ the state level So ░░░░░░░░ federal government can lead ░░░░░░░░ example with what we ░░░░░░░░ doing in the federal ░░░░░░░░ But we should be ░░░░░░░░ states and pressing them ░░░░░░░░ helping them get resources ░░░░░░░░ do this the right ░░░░░░░░ At the federal level ░░░░░░░░ will take a commission ░░░░░░░░ how to best use ░░░░░░░░ power to unwind incarceration ░░░░░░░░ is no longer not ░░░░░░░░ the intended goal and ░░░░░░░░ more harm than good ░░░░░░░░ s turn to the ░░░░░░░░ facility and dangerly overcrowded ░░░░░░░░ the White House proposed ░░░░░░░░ 4 5 billion spending ░░░░░░░░ and most TV goes ░░░░░░░░ humanitarian aid for new ░░░░░░░░ for the migrants some ░░░░░░░░ them are children and ░░░░░░░░ of them are not ░░░░░░░░ stay The New York ░░░░░░░░ editorial board said quote ░░░░░░░░ short it is time ░░░░░░░░ Congress to stop dithering ░░░░░░░░ pass emergency funding to ░░░░░░░░ with this nightmare Democrats ░░░░░░░░ standing in the way ░░░░░░░░ this They don t ░░░░░░░░ with it Is it ░░░░░░░░ that your party Democrats ░░░░░░░░ Congress are putting Politics ░░░░░░░░ what these migrants need ░░░░░░░░ now I think what ░░░░░░░░ most need is comprehensive ░░░░░░░░ immigration reform I understand ░░░░░░░░ I m talking about ░░░░░░░░ emergency right now I ░░░░░░░░ the bigger picture issue ░░░░░░░░ ve talked about that ░░░░░░░░ I m not against ░░░░░░░░ more funds in order ░░░░░░░░ help with the issue ░░░░░░░░ the border but part ░░░░░░░░ the reason there is ░░░░░░░░ frustration and concern and ░░░░░░░░ among congressional Democrats is ░░░░░░░░ it is not doing ░░░░░░░░ about the bigger problem ░░░░░░░░ have a president who ░░░░░░░░ elected on a promise ░░░░░░░░ fix immigration Whatever that ░░░░░░░░ to him And what ░░░░░░░░ ve seen is that ░░░░░░░░ of the issues that ░░░░░░░░ with us then are ░░░░░░░░ us now and issues ░░░░░░░░ the border including a ░░░░░░░░ crisis created by this ░░░░░░░░ through cruel policies like ░░░░░░░░ separation are getting worse ░░░░░░░░ the one thing that ░░░░░░░░ really help the issue ░░░░░░░░ increased migration flow from ░░░░░░░░ America and the words ░░░░░░░░ one migrant who said ░░░░░░░░ m not not here ░░░░░░░░ seek the American Dream ░░░░░░░░ m fleeing from Honduras ░░░░░░░░ we re seeing a ░░░░░░░░ to take funds away ░░░░░░░░ stabilizing the Central American ░░░░░░░░ We have this completely ░░░░░░░░ down and measures designed ░░░░░░░░ put out fires in ░░░░░░░░ near term would be ░░░░░░░░ lot more convincing if ░░░░░░░░ were set up in ░░░░░░░░ context of an actual ░░░░░░░░ reform Which by the ░░░░░░░░ if you talk about ░░░░░░░░ people on both parties ░░░░░░░░ to do it If ░░░░░░░░ talk about Congress not ░░░░░░░░ much And I think ░░░░░░░░ real dark fact behind ░░░░░░░░ of this is if ░░░░░░░░ were solved if we ░░░░░░░░ comprehensive re reform this ░░░░░░░░ could claim it as ░░░░░░░░ achievement but it is ░░░░░░░░ useful as a crisis ░░░░░░░░ than as an achievement.
