tension so war between india and pakistan. and with nigeria's presidential election postponed the country's politicians blame each other. sixteen u.s. states including california and new york challenging president donald trump's declaration of a national emergency they're accusing the u.s. president of violating the constitution to secure funding for his mexico border wall made the move on friday after congress refused to grant him the five point seven billion dollars he demanded the lawsuit argues that trump doesn't have the power to divert the funds because congress is in charge of spending the coalition of state says it's taking legal action to protect its residents natural resources and economic interests john hendren has more from washington d.c. . president donald trump faces his biggest challenge yet in the effort to build
6:02 am
a wall along the u.s. border with mexico that is because sixteen states on monday filed a suit in the u.s. federal court asking the court to stop the president from moving forward with spending money based on his declaration of an emergency on the southern border they have a couple of reasons for that challenge the first they say is that the president does not control spending congress does under the u.s. constitution the argument that is likely to meet the maid on the president's side is that congress delegated some of that authority to the president under an one nine hundred seventy six law called the national emergencies act but those states also say that they will be using the president's word against him he said i didn't need to do this but i just wanted to do it faster and those states say that they are hurt because they are losing money for law enforcement military and drug interdiction and military construction the case is likely to go to the u.s.
6:03 am
supreme court the u.s. district court in california where it will first be heard has often overturned president trump's arguments including on such things as immigration it is possible he will be blocked from this spending but it is unclear whether this case will take weeks months or possibly even longer john fredericks is a syndicated radio talk show host and a member of the top twenty twenty campaign advisory board and he joins us now via skype from the genea beats john thanks for being with us again on al-jazeera how confident are you that this in the eyes of that will actually constitutes an imagined. well this is an emergency and the prison is ultimately going to be successful it's securing about eight billion additional dollars towards the barrier in the wall that he's advocated for along the southern border of the united states this is a frivolous lawsuit brought by the six democratic states that basically want an
6:04 am
open border situation so they can have additional people commit to the united states documented illegal and eventually turn it to democratic voters that's what this argument is about everybody sees through it it might get a stay in the ninth district which is a very liberal set of judges out of san francisco but it makes its way up to the supreme court of the united states which is inevitable i think it will get fast tracked this stuff the president is going to be successful and he's going to be able to take those funds and continue to build the wall and this is going to go right into the twenty twenty campaign that's going to be the number one issue on everyone's minds when as you say this is kaley an issue for the president tonight belies his base around is that what this is about no it's about securing the southern border right now because we have an emergency we are we've we've already
6:05 am
got this stuff a four thousand troops on the border right now military personnel the the amount of illegal immigration crossings with these caravans coming up is increased dramatically we have gangs on time we have want let me stop you there because that the majority of people arriving are asylum seekers is the numbers have gone down and most do come through official points of entry as well as the drugs and that president assad concerned about so if things are going through official points of entry what would be the purpose of the wall. well they're not going through the official points of edge because when you look at the drugs you're only looking at the number of drugs that has been confiscated at the point of entry because we have surveillance there the majority are coming through areas of the united states that have zero surveillance zero walls zero barrier we have no idea what is coming
6:06 am
through that's one of the problems and as far as the asylum seekers the asylum laws in the united states have been twisted by by liberal activist judges and to such an extent that you can basically claim asylum for anything people that are coming up the test in these caravans every day which are funded by the drug cartels basically they're funded by them they have a script to read. that they're provided to do by lawyers telling the ages exactly what to say in order to seek asylum and then once they're in the united states we have so many laws protecting them they can't get them out that's one of the issues and this president is determined to do what it takes in order to keep the country safe stop the gangs stop the violence and stop the influx of illegals from the last time and i didn't see pat as like this we used with the nine eleven and there
6:07 am
a consensus among republicans too about the use of power is like this and something like this setting some dangerous precedent and ten suspending. well congress gave the executive branch of the united states the president the authorization to do this in one thousand nine hundred eighty six and tell us when they passed the when they passed the national emergency so this is been invoked by a number of presidents a number of times were different issues including president barack obama and so. president trump believes that that he has to do something in order to. in order to stop the influx of wilds and drugs and sex traffickers coming in the southern border and so he invoked that growing crowd word any president has the right to do this in the future as they have in the past john fredericks
6:08 am
a member of the trump twenty twenty campaign advisory board speaking to us from virginia thank you for being with us john thank you it's us well meanwhile a forty five year old mexican migrant has died in u.s. border patrol custody and texas reports show the passenger who hasn't yet been identified was admitted to hospital on february said suffering liver and hot problems it's the third day in u.s. border patrol custody at in as many months to guatemala and children died in hospital in december to illegally crossing into the united states those cases drew widespread condemnation. while trump is also continuing to ramp up the pressure on embattled venezuelan president nicolas maduro in a speech to the venezuelan community in florida he called on the country's military to throw its weight behind opposition leader one quite oh and you got to reports from miami. the crowd at florida international university was invite only and
6:09 am
most were venezuelans eager for a change in a country many have fled in a wide ranging speech president trump said venezuela's path to democracy was irreversible and he had a simple message for the country's military leaders the eyes of the entire world are upon you today every day and every day in the future you cannot hide from the choice that now confronts you you can choose to accept president writers jenner's or for of amnesty to live your life in peace with your families and your countrymen. president ryder does not seek retribution against you and neither do we outside students gathered to watch the show their support or protests what some see as unnecessary interference but for those who have a close affiliation with venezuela trumps message resonated there's no food there's people eating dogs and there's even cases where like people go to the zoo and like
6:10 am
eat animals and there is all so they need to be something done especially since the recent elections this the potential of people deciding that like they don't want to mean they want change it's a lot of countries around the world are saying hey this is an elf it's a dictatorship there's nothing democratic about what happened in venezuela in the past twenty years and it should be called out and so instrumental in trying to push to remove nicolas maduro is florida senator marco rubio who just returned from a trip to the colombian border where humanitarian aid is being blocked by the venezuelan authorities what is happening here today what is happening in venezuela is a manmade crisis of epic proportions not caused by a natural disaster but by manmade one of a criminal regime that is willing to starve and kill its own people before it gets a power. it's clear that the trumpet ministration is ramping up pressure on nicolas maduro but the president also railed against an ideology he sees as an evil force across the americas socialism by its very nature does not respect
6:11 am
borders it does not respect boundaries or the sovereign rights of its citizens or its neighbors the president's speech here is being seen in two distinct ways to exile venezuelans desperate for change it's a genuine effort to end what many see as a brutal dictatorship for others this was trump on the campaign trail keen to win over florida's latin voters and label his democratic opponents as socialists by the way there's a lot at stake for the people of venezuela and gallacher al-jazeera miami florida. well just off the president spoke in miami president nicolas maduro hit back accusing trump of trying to give orders to a foreign nation's military. they want to enslave us that's the truth today trump was giving orders attention generals listen to trump is giving orders again to our armed forces who does he think he is the
6:12 am
commander in chief. well among the many institutions struggling in today's venezuela is the education system many classrooms are now empty with stuff on strike and no money for supplies last in america and as well you see a new man reports from caracas. venezuela and teachers chants their new mantra no no we don't want to leave we want to dignified salary so that we can live. a physical education teacher genia about al is one of hundreds who are on a go slow strike her sign reads three university titles fourteen years of service and an empty refrigerator. our children a rake in the teachers pass out in class from hunger not to mention the messick siddhis of teachers have left our country our education system is in a state of emergency. we went to see for ourselves in this working class

6:22 am
had been made so we are i think at a stage where china is beginning to accept that the negotiating strategy that had served it so well in the past simply isn't working i think china wants a deal but it's not prepared for sort of total capitulation china has said that it's prepared to address the deficit in other words buying more stuff from the united states in particular agriculture and dairy products but the stumbling block remains you know the demands from the united states are to make big changes to the way that it manages its economy in particular the the vast subsidies that the government gives to domestic companies here in china the united states says that means it's very difficult for u.s. companies to compete but of course you know high noon is approaching we have what nine to ten days left before president trump carries out his threat to raise by ten to twenty five percent tariffs on some two hundred billion dollars worth of chinese
6:23 am
goods if that were to happen of course that's going to exacerbate china's already complicated economic problems right now slowing economic growth and of course the fact that consumer spending is continuing to to flatline edge and as you say that deadline is approaching just how desperate is beijing to do it. well i think you know without a doubt president xi jinping doesn't need one more financial risk right now but also you know you could argue the president donald trump needs a deal right now he's had setbacks over his plans to build out war he said a whole slew of bad economic news so the united states and china would both on paper appear to need a deal but there is still it's quite clear a vast gap between what the united states is demanding and what china is prepared
6:24 am
to yield i think what we're looking at the end of the day is possibly a partial superficial deal a deal to make sure that no more tariffs are applied by either side but it's going to take a lot longer to sort out the sort of structural reforms that the united states is demanding that china is going to make it's going to be a bit like the you know negotiations between britain and the european union over brics it this is going to go on for for months if not years out azaria's adrian brown in beijing watching all of those developments for us from there thank you adrian nigeria's electoral commission says political campaigning can resume after its controversial decision to delay the general elections by a week president bush hari is calling for an investigation into why the vote was put off his ruling party's held an emergency meeting in a breach or once the reasons behind the delay to be made public but only off the polling takes place on saturday definitively. where i

sit in print which is military. has its little deletion after the election we have to know exactly what happened to. our employees to. make sure that this is still willing to really accept. is that making progress which is the use exemption from putin's to brawl to has dismissed actions by a spanish naval ship as a childish attempt to bully the territory the crew of the spanish warship has been accused of ordering commercial vessels to leave disputed waters near gibraltar before being challenged by the british navy it's the latest in a string of diplomatic disputes over the tiny mediterranean peninsula challenge has this update from london so the government of gibraltar says that a spanish warship radioed commercial vessels anchored at gibraltar and told them
6:26 am
to leave spanish waters now according to the governments of gibraltar these are foolish games only of nuisance value played by those who don't accept unimpeachable british sovereignty over the waters around abroad as recognized by the whole world in the united nations convention on the law of the sea now gibraltar is a british overseas territory and it was ceded by the spanish to the united kingdom in seventeen thirteen in perpetuity so the british say it's ours now and it will be forever more but of course with the u.k. trying to leave the european union at the moment relations with spain are important and gibraltar becomes a pressure point essentially that the british fear the spanish are going to use because they've always wanted gibraltar back against the u.k.
6:27 am
in its negotiations with the european union and century what it becomes is another example like northern ireland of britain's complicated colonial history and its territorial legacy coming back to bite it basically in the here and now and making things very complicated as brics it unfolds and the u.k. tries to leave the european union. seven members of britain's opposition labor party have resigned in protest against jeremy corbin's leadership the politicians say his failure isn't related in relation to break says and he semitism and a culture of bullying left them no choice the group has split into an independent group that has no plans to form a new party called and says he's disappointed by the decision millions of people in china have been banned from travelling on planes and trains as the government expands its social credit program that ranks people stressed worthiness in twenty eight thousand more than seventeen million people with low schools were barred from
6:28 am
buying plane tickets and another five million weren't allowed to get on high speed trains nearly four million companies have also been blacklisted rights activists have raised concerns about the scoring system which relies on mass data. is the china list for the economist intelligence unit and she says the social credit system will end up hurting the most vulnerable people. so the social credit system a works actually by principle very much similar to those in europe and america it's just the chinese government is collecting data from a much broader type of indicators like whether people pay their loans on time what they say on the internet whether day visit their parents on time all sorts of those petty behaviors that we don't think normally would be including to about that about the world it just seems that the arm of china's government is really reaching too
6:29 am
long. and for myself i really feel uncomfortable for to see all those millions of people are affected already by being denied of their access to flights and high speed rail because a lot of those people are actually all part of the most disadvantaged a group in china they're very much in need of bigger help if they did do something wrong on the key thing to help them is actually threaten cation to cheat teach them the consequences of their behavior and try to help them instead of just taking scores and i can see the system probably maybe by out of good intention but hurt the very much the group of people that it should help. this really fundamentally it's a social justice problem it's also about how they draw the line because i know that many of the top leadership and their families are not including the system and then eventually who is being being monitored and a which group are actually being helped
