poses a greater or more immediate threat than the regime of saddam hussein this is a regime that has something to hide they have here a significant propaganda for sure and guess what not one w m d shite was found in iraq since the one nine hundred ninety one iraq a deadly deception on al jazeera. it's a daunting climb to one of the holiest sites in bhutan. seems to defy gravity every few cities is expected to complete the pilgrimage to ensure peace and happiness what it became a democracy in two thousand and eight the time put happiness at the center of all political policy inspiring the un to pass a resolution urging other nations to follow bhutan example but how do you measure it many brits unease happiness is what we ensure it's if it is quantifiable but by

border wall enters a third week. you're watching al-jazeera live from our headquarters here in doha also coming up a new female u.s. congresswoman places criticism for using an expletive when calling for the impeachment of president trump. members of the minority busy community say they see a for their safety and for us with force troops from northern syria. thousands are left homeless in thailand after a powerful tropical storm bashes the country's southern coast. the u.s. president on the trump says give him his wall or he's prepared to keep more than eight hundred thousand public employees off work for a year the president is also threatening to use
7:50 pm
a much as your powers to get it built meanwhile negotiators are vowing to work through the weekend in washington to try and break the deadlock has the latest from washington. the two sides emerged from both sides of the white house with very different impressions of how their meeting went and we had a very very productive meeting lengthy and sometimes a contentious conversation with the president. with democrats now in charge of one chamber of congress they came to the white house to try and find a compromise to reopen the government the president says he won't sign a bill that doesn't spend five billion dollars on a wall the democrats say they simply will not spend a penny to build it they only seem to agree on one thing in fact he said he'd keep the government closed for a very long period of time months or even years absolutely i said that i don't think it will but i am prepared and i think i can speak for republicans in the house and republicans in the senate they feel very strongly about having
7:51 pm
a safe country but that is the key question can he keep senate republicans on his side if enough vote to fund the government it could override any potential veto reopening the government with out of all without that it could go on it for much longer both sides refusing to budge the president threatened to declare a national emergency to build his wall on his own but it seems unlikely he actually has the power to do that under the constitution an open question about who will win the political fight hundreds of thousands of government workers and contractors are not being paid and for many not paying their bills for them it is a question of how much more they'll have to lose before this political fight is over political hane al-jazeera washington live to washington correspondent gabriel elizondo gape who do you think might blink first here. well that's the million dollar question and quite frankly nobody knows the answer to that peter this is
7:52 pm
really a stalemate like we've never really quite seen before in washington d.c. you know we've seen. government shutdowns in the past but there was always some sort of negotiation going back and forth the real urgency to in these shutdowns we're really not seeing that and that's what makes this government shutdown so much different you rarely have both sides both the white house and donald trump and on the other side the democrats led by nancy pelosi that really have no motivation for say to really negotiate nancy pelosi is position is very clear on the democratic side and trump is really dug in his side saying that he will not go forward in unless he gets this money for this border wall that he wants so how you see any sort of conclusion to this is really anybody's guess i can tell you on saturday that there will be staff level meetings between. congressional leaders their staff members and staff from the white house meeting at about eleven am local time here
7:53 pm
in washington to try to negotiate more but really a lot of pessimism that anything will come out of that those staff level meetings will the pressure increase on both sides both donald trump's white house and also the democrats mrs pelosi when those government work because don't get paid towards the end of the month. yes without a doubt there's going to be a lot of pressure that's building particularly because two reasons the people that are really affected by this are every day working americans middle class americans and there's two things we're got going on here number one the eight hundred thousand government employees that are either not working and or working and not getting paid those are people from that such as park rangers from the national park service t.s.a. workers transportation security administration workers that do security and screening at the airports that are not getting paid but asked to work as well as coast guard officials as well so you have really working class government
7:54 pm
employees. that are not going to get be getting paid and there's a lot of pressure there that government officials are going to be feeling from from these eight hundred thousand or so employees but then you also have millions of other americans that will not be getting benefits potentially because of the partial government shutdown such things such as the food stamp recipients there are about thirty eight million americans low income americans that receive government state ins every month to assist them in buying food well these government stipends now are at risk of not being paid out to these millions of americans because of the government shutdown as well so the ramifications of this are far and wide and they go far beyond even the eight hundred thousand or so government employees that are directly affected tens of millions of other americans now could be directly affected as well gabriel thanks very much. the u.s.

justice and homeland security departments admit to using a report that was both inaccurate and misleading to link immigration to so-called terrorism as information was then used by the white house in the push for immigration reform the document claims that seventy three percent of people convicted of international terrorism related charges since the nine eleven attacks were foreign born but it fails to detail how many individuals committed so-called terrorist acts abroad and were only later brought to the u.s. for prosecution critics say by focusing on foreign born fighters the report admits statistics on home grown fighters including point supremacists and far right groups several civil liberty groups of brought about lawsuits saying the two government agencies misused their power to advance a political agenda officials have admitted to the errors but have declined to retract or to correct the report eric ham is an author and political analyst he says the report has compromised the u.s.
7:56 pm
justice department. i think we've already seen a blurring of the lines between both the justice department and the white house since the president was inaugurated and i think that's one of the reasons why i think there's so much concern particularly among both political parties here in washington that you're seeing a president that is hat has his hands on the scales of justice which is one of the reasons why you're seeing rising cause that there is a constitutional crisis that's coursing through the u.s. government here right at this time this was being done at the time that the administration was trying to bolster its reasoning for a band of the muslim countries and one of the reasons that they were attempting to use that was to say that if there was a security risk in of course and they were using this idea that they were this terrorism was linked to immigration but of course now we see that the justice
7:57 pm
department was was was was erroneous and that idea and so now we're seeing the justice department actually retract this report which is virtually unheard of here in the united states that you would have the justice department actually do something like that but unfortunately what we're not seeing from the justice department is the department actually going further than that and saying that this was in fact a political tool not a policy tool nor was it actually a legal tool as well one of the first muslim female members of the u.s. congress is facing condemnation for using an explosive against president trump when calling for his impeachment democratic congresswoman rushing to to labor made those comments just as often she was sworn in the president called her language to scrape but to leave is standing by her remarks is on account of. newly sworn in but already courting controversy detroit congresswoman rashida to lead concluded to
7:58 pm
celebrate three speech on thursday with a comment that's attracted widespread attention bullies don't play and the baby gets out because we're going to go in there really the mother. i believe is part of a new generation of democratic lawmakers many of them women coming to power for the first time most are seen as progressive and keen to hold president trump to account i don't like their language we use our language i don't like it again establish any language standards for my colleagues and i don't think it's anything worse than the president when the president said some in the democratic party are said to be angry to leave comments fearful that it could be seen as playing politics rather than pursuing oversight we had a very very productive meeting his part the president claims impeachment is not on the democrats' agenda so i think it's very hard to a peach on but he has done a great job that's number one and. and we've been talked about that today i said
7:59 pm
why don't you use this for impeachment and then she said we're not looking to impeach you i said that's good that's good to leave comments so widely seen as premature but the new generation of lawmakers in the house may present the party's leadership with challenges huge number of new members who are quite bold if you will. have their own mark and may say we don't care what he says we got the vote we're not going along with what she says impeachment is a risky move for the democratic party and many are telling new members to be more cautious special counsel robert muller's probe is still underway and senior democrats are said to be more focused on the twenty twenty election either way most agree the language used by the congresswoman was not helpful to gallacher al-jazeera washington. members of the religious minority the z.t. community appealing with the u.s. not to withdraw troops from northern syria a report by the free years e.d. foundation is warning if washington leave syria before i solicit defeated the young
