1:01 am
that being overwhelmed as hundreds of people of arrive from north africa. and fierce fighting around had data at port despite the saudi m. rashi coalition saying it's taken it from yemen to see rebels. the pressure keeps growing on u.s. president donald trump over his administration's policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the border of mexico and american business leaders are the latest to join the chorus of condemnation following criticism by former first lady laura bush and even his own wife but trump is refusing to back down and has actually responded by ramping up the rhetoric we want to solve this problem we want to solve family separation i don't want children taken away from parents. and when you prosecute the parents for coming in illegally which should happen you have
1:02 am
to take the children away now we don't have to prosecute them but then we're not prosecuting them for coming in illegally that's not. we want to end the border crisis by finally giving us the legal authorities and the resources to detain and remove illegal immigrant families altogether and bring them back to their country we have to bring them back well in mexico's foreign minister added his voice to those condemning the policy. i would like to express in the name of the people and government of mexico our most categorical and energetic condemnation of what is a cruel and inhuman policy mexico fully recognizes the united states sovereignty and its capacity to decide its own way of dealing with immigration the mexican government does not in any way promote illegal immigration however we cannot be
1:03 am
indifferent to what clearly represents a violation of human rights and can put children including disabled children in situations of danger and vulnerability. adding to the outrage of distressed children inside detention centers which was recorded by propose investigative journalism organization. there are four. people. i think of. from every. thing that i call. or u.s. president on all has arrived on capitol hill to discuss his immigration policy with
1:04 am
republican lawmakers alan fischer is monitoring this for us and so is there the condemnation of the recent policy of separating migrant families continues what seeking to do today at capitol hill. while he's over on the house side of me speaking to lawmakers over there there are two bills in the works the fine details are still being worked on one is fairly conservative and gives a lot of what donald trump wants but doesn't the widespread support want to slightly more widespread support and talks about things like funding for the border wall also giving the dreamers the young children who are brought here illegally by their parents a pathway to citizenship is a problem with the right these bills are being watched through and we think the more moderate one also considers the idea of stopping the separation of families here's the problem with that donald trump on friday the white house said whatever bill comes out of the house and then is approved by the senate we will sign he's
1:05 am
now saying whatever we see from the house we will take it away we will amend the and then we will send it back that will slow the whole process there in the senate meanwhile is walking on a deal to try and just limit some sort of legislation towards stopping the separation of children from their their their parents and that is being pushed through by the republicans to difficulties with that one if it goes through here in the senate then don't trump might know a sign. but the bigger problem for them is that that is not getting any traction with the democrats it's not that they don't want to address the situation but this is there's no legislative need for a change if you go back and they're actually saying look if you go back to the republican convention two years ago when donald trump accepted the nomination for president remember he stood on the stage and said we have problems with immigration and i alone can solve all the saying that's absolutely true we don't need a legislative fix you can solve this by picking up the food making a call and seeing that policy which separates children from the parents has to stop
1:06 am
and has to stop no but what we're seeing is a lot of talk about immigration here on the hill the concern among many is that yet again will be a lot of talk about immigration here on the hill and by the time we get to the end of the week this situation wouldn't have moved and there is pressure on donald trump to do something in the next twenty four forty eight hours because we're hearing more and more voices seeing what is happening in the border is simply un-american and unacceptable all right thank you very much and all the latest from capitol hill alan fischer. united states has a hold out of the united nations human rights council the first country to ever withdraw its ambassador to the u.n. nikki haley maybe announcement alongside the secretary of state might on in washington haley has accused the council of chronic bias against israel and
1:07 am
announced last year that the u.s. was reviewing its membership she says the u.s. is leaving because the council did not make any effort to change its ways the united states is officially withdrawing from the un human rights council. in doing so i want to make it crystal clear that this step is not a retreat from human rights commitments on the contrary we take this step because our commitment does not allow us to remain a part of a hypocritical and self-serving organization that makes a mockery of human rights we did not make this decision lightly the human rights council is a poor defender of human rights. worse than that the human rights council has become an exercise in shameless hypocrisy with many of the world's worst human rights abuses going ignored and some of the world's most serious offenders sitting on the council itself. the only thing worse than
1:08 am
a council that does almost nothing to protect human rights is a council that covers for human rights abuses uses and is therefore an obstacle to progress and an impediment to change. let's now speak to louis united nations direct to the human rights watch thank you very much for speaking to us and so we just listening to some of the comments made there from secretary of state might pompei a very strong criticism of the u.n. human rights council saying that they the body had failed in its objectives that it was. accusing the body of shameless hypocrisy is there a serious need for this body to reform from within. the human rights council has done some very good work highlighting human rights abuses around the world scrutinizing then bringing facts to light which enable
1:09 am
us to work on holding these countries to account in syria they set up a commission of inquiry that has been working for the last seven years uncovering ghastly abuses reporting publicly on them they set up a fact finding mission for myanmar where we've seen ethnic cleansing on a scale that is mind boggling they have looked at the problems in south sudan burundi congo north korea so many issues that the human rights council has looked at and it's done very good work this is not to say that the council doesn't have its shortcomings the council should be spending more time looking at issues like the human rights abuses in venezuela in egypt turkey the united states has complained that that israel is being treated unfairly israel
1:10 am
deserves criticism the problem isn't that israel is being criticized but some of these other issues that i mentioned like venezuela turkey egypt are not getting enough attention so the united states to as a member of the human rights council gets scrutinized an all countries are going to be subjected to periodic reviews this is normal but to say that this is a reason to walk away from it that that's like throwing the baby out with the bathwater this isn't doing anything for the victims of human rights abuses around the world and it tells us that america first means ignoring the victims that the minority has and none more or the vic. doesn't like you and i do you understand how it's somewhat unprecedented for the united states to be walking away does it undermine the u.n. human rights council in some way how might it impact that work and their efforts
1:11 am
well i hope it doesn't what is one thing that i'm worried about is that a country as powerful as the united states is and the united states has led the way in bringing the human rights council around to look at north korea sri lanka and other abusive situations bit by walking away we don't want the keys to basically be handed over to countries like china which has a very poor record on human rights and would like to use the council as a tool to shield itself from criticism saudi arabia could do the same or some of the other some other powerful countries that might try to turn the human rights council into a playground for them we certainly don't want that so we hope that the u.s. will remain engaged in some level after what walking away from it this is certainly
1:12 am
possible but we don't know and they didn't make much indeed they didn't give much indication that they would be coming back to help the council on some of the issues that they care about like north korea syria and some of the others unfortunately the u.s. is placing protection protecting israel from criticism for its abuses over all else thank you for taking time to speak to us live the shop and united nations director for human rights watch thank you. now police immigration and rescue teams in southern spain say they are being overwhelmed by hundreds of people arriving from north africa that landing on spanish beaches after sailing across the mediterranean sea in flimsy boats called panel reports now and the spanish port on mera back out to sea and on high alert for refugee boats in distress lives in peril. up in the
