Everything Kamala Harris Said at the Democratic Debate, From Food Fights to Busing | NBC New York



do you think that Democrats have a responsibility to explain how they will pay for every proposal they make along those lines well let me tell you something I hear that question but where was that question when the Republicans and Donald Trump passed a tax bill bit that benefits the top one contributing at least a one trillion dollars to the debt of America which middle-class families will pay for one way or another working families need support and need to be lifted up and frankly this economy is not working for working people for too long the rules have been written in the favor of the people who have the most and not in favor of the people who work the most which is why I am proposing that we change the tax code so for every family that is making less than $100,000 a year they will receive a tax credit that they can collect up to $500 a month which will make all the difference between those families being able to get through the end of the month with dignity and with support or not and on day one I will repeal that tax bill that benefits the top one percent and the biggest corporations of America hey guys you know what America does not want to witness a food fight they want to know how we're going to put food on their table on that point part of the issue that is at play in America today and we've all been traveling around the country I certainly have I'm meeting people who are working two and three jobs you know this president walks around talking about and flouting his great economy right my great economy my great economy you ask him well how are you measuring this greatness of this economy of yours and he talks about the stock market well that's fine if your own stocks so many families in America do not you ask them how are you measuring the greatness of this economy of yours and they point to the jobless numbers and the unemployment numbers well you have people in America are working they're working two and three jobs so when we talk about jobs let's be really clear in our America no one should have to work more than one job to have a roof over their head and food of how this affects real people is captured in a story that many of us heard and I will paraphrase there is any night in America a parent who's seeing that their child has a temperature that is out of control calls 911 I do and they say take the child to the emergency room and so they give up their car and they drive and they're sitting in the parking lot outside of the emergency room looking at those sliding glass doors while they have the hand on the floor head of their child knowing that if they walk through those sliding glass doors even though they have insurance they will be out of 5,000 deductible $5,000 deductible when they walk through those doors senator Harris last month more than 130,000 migrants were apprehended as the southern border many of them are being detained including small children in private detention centers in Florida and throughout our country most of the candidates on this stage say the conditions of these facilities are important On January 20th 2021 if you are president what specifically would you do with the thousands of people who try to reach the United States every day and want a better life through asylum immediately On January 20th of 2021 I will first of all we cannot forget that our daca recipients and so I'm going to start there I will immediately by executive action reinstate daca status and daca protection to those young people I will further extend protection for deferral of deportation for their parents and for veterans who we have so many who are undocumented and have served our country and fought for our democracy I will also immediately put in place a meaningful process for reviewing the cases for asylum I will release children from cages I will get rid of the private detention centers and I will ensure that the this microphone that the President of the United States holds in her hand is used in a way and not about locking children up separating them from their parents and I have to just say that we have to think about this issue in terms of real people a mother who pays a coyote to transport her trial through their country of origin through the entire country of Mexico facing unknown peril to come here why would that mother do that I will tell you because she has decided for that child to remain where they are is worse but what does Donald Trump do he says go back to where you came from that is not reflective of our America and our values and it's got to end well thank you I will say no absolutely not they should not be deported and I actually this was one of the very few issues with which I disagreed with the administration with whom I otherwise had a great relationship and a great deal of respect but on the Secure Communities issue I was Attorney General of California I led the second largest department of justice in the United States second only to the United States Department of Justice in a state of 40 million people and on this issue I disagreed with my president because the policy was to allow deportation of people who by Isis own definition were non criminals so as Attorney General and the chief law officer of the state of California I issued a directive to the sheriffs of my state that they did not have to comply with detainers and instead should make decisions based on the best interest of Public Safety of their community because what I saw and I was tracking it every day I was tracking it and saw that parent debt parents people who had not committed a crime even by Isis own definition were being deported and but I have to add a point here the problem with this kind of policy and I know it as a prosecutor man I want a rape victim to be able to run in the middle of it but to run in the middle of the street and wave down a police officer and report the crime against her I want anybody who has been the victim of any crime to be able to do them and not be afraid that if they do that they will be deported because the observed like to speak on the [Applause] we'll give you 30 seconds we're going to come back to you on this again in just a moment go for 30 seconds okay so on the issue of race I couldn't agree more that this is an issue that is still not being talked about truthfully and honestly I there is not a black man I know be he a relative a friend or a co-worker who has not been the subject of some form of profiling or discrimination growing up my sister and I had to deal with the neighbor who told us her parents couldn't play with us because she because we were black and I will say also that that in this campaign we have also heard and I'm gonna now direct this at Vice President Biden I do not believe you are a racist and I agree with you when you commit yourself to the importance of finding common ground but I also believe and it's personal and I was actually very it was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country and it was not only that but you also worked with them to oppose busing and you know there was a little girl in California who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools and she was bused to school every day and that little girl was me so I will tell you that on this subject it cannot be an intellectual debate among Democrats we have to take it seriously we have to act swiftly as Attorney General of California I was very proud to put in place a requirement that all my special agents would wear body cameras and keep those cameras on but so the bottom line here is look everything I have done in my career I ran because of civil rights I continue to think we have to make fundamental changes in civil rights and those civil rights by the way include not just only African Americans but the LGBT community present biting do you agree today do you agree today that you were wrong to oppose busing in America though do you agree I did not oppose busing in America what I opposed is busing ordered by the Department of Education that's what I oppose not a failure of states to endure public schools in America I was part of the second class to integrate Berkeley California public schools almost two days to brown v board of education because your City Council made that decision that's why we need to pass the e ra because there are moments in history where states fail to preserve the civil rights of rfg fortitude she live in a state that has been hit by droughts wildfires flooding climate change is a major concern for voters in your state and it's pretty obvious obviously this state as well last night voters heard many of the candidates weigh in on their proposals explain specifically what yours is well first of all I don't even call it climate change it's the climate crisis it represents an existential threat to us as a species and the fact that we have a president of the United States who is embraced science fiction over science fact will be to our collective peril I visited while the embers were smoldering the wildfires in California I spoke with firefighters who were in the midst of fighting a fire while their own home

  7. Couldn’t even watch this ridiculous woman speak for long. She couldn’t do a damn thing to fix CA, but she’s going to solve America’s problems… b please…

  8. I clicked on this video so badly wanting to believe. I painfully voted for Trump in Los Angeles county and all I've asked from the Democrats since is to shut up and give me someone better. I'll keep an eye on the rest of the candidates, but all I've gotten here is "everything is bad and wouldn't it be nice if things were better" Sure, there are lots of things I want to see improve, but how are you going to do it? How are you going to spend your cut of my pay to do the things you romanticize?

  9. I'm just imagining Andrew Yang saying very discretely "1,000 dollars" every time struggling families get brought up XD. I'm sorry but that would've been hilarious XD

  10. Kamala the yuganda lady giant, and warren will be the top 2 for dem. Seriously people, this is all a work and scripted. It's all fixed, she is in there as a ploy, Trump is getting re elected he signed the papers. I don't vote anymore, however, what a disgrace in our country.

  11. How do you have the guts to talk about the economy when we Arizona residents just keep seeing Californians moving in.
