you know this is exactly the right point in the right question to be asking the net migration from mexico to the united states is about 0 the migration issues with the united states right now are coming from central america but the terrorists as you correctly indicate are targeted against mexico so you always have to ask the question is the united states shooting at the right target now the obvious response is well if we punish mexico quote unquote maybe they'll take greater steps to prevent central americans from using their territory to transit into the united states and stop these migrant caravans stump of migrants before they can get to the united states but you know you really have to wonder if this is the right tool to be employing to try to get to that result we're hearing 2 words from the trumpet ministration done enough when you've done enough we might revisit this but what does that actually mean. nobody knows that's the problem i mean you can say we're going to institute these tariffs 5 percent are going to escalate to 25 perhaps but
12:01 pm
when is enough and that that's truly one of the issues how if you're the president of mexico who's trying to calm things down trying to send his foreign minister to meet with senior u.s. officials ready asking for calm asking for you know peaceful quick resolution but if you don't know what fundamentally being asked of you how can you know if you've met the standard and how much is enough i think that's part of the problem at the same time you know people who are trying to invest people who are trying to do business how will they know how to plan if they if they don't know if the tariffs are going to be on in the future and then and they don't know what level they're going to be at either this is a real problem and we're going to find out real quick how the business community and others respond and eric when you talk about investments and chatter of some international business community everyone in the north america's canada the u.s. and mexico they've already taken a step into the maze of recipe cation when it comes to recipe cation or exe indeed existing. trade agreements as far as mr trump is concerned does this now in your
12:02 pm
mind clearly mean that those those dynamics are in effect worth 0 because what's the point and russified what's the point in having an agreement if when you see fit you can in effect rip it all up well i think that's the question that legislators in all 3 countries are going to have to ask or at the very beginning of the process in all 3 countries and you know this fundamentally really requires trust and faith and goodwill among all 3 parties if you don't believe you can trust your counterparty to uphold the terms of the agreement that you are entering into at some domestic political cost you have to ask yourselves if indeed it's worth the cost to pay at the front end and i think you know the timing on this is perfect because and i think that ironically because with mexico looking to ratify this agreement right now and with the u.s. vice president penned in canada right now talking about these issues and the u.s. having just sent some language up to the u.s. congress about ratification that the gears are in motion the wheels are moving
12:03 pm
forward the question have to be asked will they be halted now or will that momentum i rather think that people are going to evaluate and this is going to make the ratification of the u.s. embassy a much more complicated very great structure as ever many thanks thank you plentiful ground still to cover for you here on al-jazeera including we'll have the latest on the investigation into the sinking of the budapest tourist boat in which at least 7 people died. also at the government's survival scenario faces one of his biggest challenges to date we'll tell you why these demonstrators are so angry. well many records have been broken in the number of consecutive days of tornadoes touching the ground the number of tornadoes during the month of may but it's almost overnight this is the strong line still with the potential for thunderstorms in its

12:22 pm
in. delhi. a vibrant bustling metropolis with over 20000000 inhabitants the capital of a rapidly growing india expected to be the most populous city on the planet in the next decades. it's also my home i was born in delhi and i've lived most of my life but i've been away
12:23 pm
for a few years and in that time delhi has been making the headlines for an alarming reason it's become the most polluted capital city in the world and its residents say there's snow leaving bison by the air they breathe air pollution is estimated to be the hard highest cause of death in india killing over a 1000000 people every year nearly 12000 people died in that lead 2017 because of the city's bad air some doctors are calling this a public health emergency. so i've come back to find out why like many big cities around the world this pollution from too much traffic and from industry but there are also specific local causes delis geographies one is another what i'm keen to know is why can't more be done to stop this i also want to hear from those worst affected the sick and dying and those on the frontline the
12:24 pm
levels of pollution that i it's a it's a very dangerous situation dr ivan kumar has been a lung cancer surgeon in delhi for over 30 years most of his patients used to be male smokers in their fifty's and sixty's but that's all changed when we analyzed the last year we follow. and the price of $5050.00 distribution between more goods and so-called nonsmokers from hardly any lady 40 percent female then age group from fifty's and sixty's we were now seeing patients in thirty's and forty's and nearly 8 percent of my patients were under 40 years of age i have rarely see along with just think even when i'm operating one teenagers we are fighting big black black deposits and much of this dr kumar believes is down to the city's dirty air in delhi the only requirement
12:25 pm
for you to be affected by the ill effects of air pollution is that you should be breathing. to get a better sense of what that means i had back out to the streets it's early summer and the city is gearing up for national elections pollution levels are generally lower at this time of the year than in the winter. but things are still pretty bad . i've met up with ron aqsa taria who has developed an equity wanted to ring network with piety con for and duke university to my surprise he just my attention 1st to something quite mundane the road speed thing almost like 50 micrograms off of dust which was picking up just when that activity was happening ron extra vice monitors fine particles in the air including something
12:26 pm
called pm $2.00 which is smaller than the wit of human hair this tiny particle is a mighty killer it has been linked to nearly 3000000 deaths around the world in 2017 with more than half of them occurring in china and india. although the indian government disputes mortality figures to. recchi linked to absolution b m 4.5 are the most harmful pollutants to humans you know it goes deeper than the body it settles in the lungs and over an extended eurasian you know it definitely caused all the respiratory problems while many disorders people like i was fostered by the people who are actually doing the work they're exposed to this on an extended duration day after day. there's more to the east apple using than just a good dust bowl. and so we set off to take measurements around the 6 x. 7 right now we have quite a bit larger the field $2.00 level here is higher than 60 in the last 24 hours
12:27 pm
standing how much of the problem is taking over the rate of actually called about 30 to 35 percent of belief where you should wake up going in a very costly unless it is regulated to keep going. with around $10000000.00 vehicles fighting for space in delhi's crowded streets it's unavoidable and sadly ironic that among those in the news them are some of the victims of the city's police in crisis. i'm a 26 year old new delhi resident about 6 months ago i got diagnosed with stage 4 made a static lung cancer. priyanka jan is a digital marketing consultant an only child she lives with her mother in south delhi the right lung is completely damaged the cancer has spread so much that it's just not visible on the extreme it's less than
12:28 pm
a year ago she used to drive for an hour and a half one way to get to her office nearly 25 kilometers away. now many of her journeys to and from the hospital the city's evolution has been a significant contribution to my health issue it was very very difficult because i was you know working i was living my daily life i was happy and then all of a sudden i started experiencing these breathing issues i would go breathless and then one day i was hospitalized i still feel that. i'm not sure if i would even make it for the new year and i don't know how many how many days do i have. an ear of think about it is pretty evident that she's too young to
12:29 pm
have any cancer at all and then to have a longer answer which is classically related to smoking is almost impossible to with priyanka as dr need to gain has been on colleges in delhi for the past 7 years he's noticed a rise in the lung cancer among his patients we used to talk about smoking go back every day for 25 years causes cancer say 46 so it's quite obvious that that may not be able to use their gums to chemical industries somebody who's exposed well she's not exposed to dark either then you start thinking of family history and she doesn't have the idea that you have to stop and. pollution actually be your reasons for a cancer somebody dark young there's enough evidence in the world that pollution can go dark and i really wonder if that was the main chord to be
12:30 pm
a true fact of if so then it could be in accord with the latest state of global air report on air quality and health it states that 33 percent of lung cancer deaths in india can be attributed. pollution. living in a city like delhi your directly but do you think in handing. when all look and serve warming chemicals not for one day off for daughter or do you been doing this for years together i can not see or stop it and say that's katie. and ron a kids means some more disturbing news in the past 6 months has put monitors in 15 of. the city he's noticed high levels of pollution even young hospitals in a neighborhood where i grew up. this is bad news for patients to risk of having respiratory ailments from the air that they breathe is very high for you know
12:31 pm
places like these it is particularly more important to make sure that the air is far more cleaner. it also helps explain why we could see a lot of nebulized and mosques being sold around us people used to buy headache. pain killers buying breathing about it is which is becoming a medical equipment you know requiring still the unfortunate reality you know what is happening to the i don't doubt. it's been shown by studies that men of lung capacity in generation born and brought up in the new cities like they really is much less than their counterparts in polluted cities. children are missed because some of the most exposed to the cities and pollution i meet them just a few kilometers away from where i live a poor community that helps clean up danny but is he clearly vulnerable to its
12:32 pm
dirty and. covered up go of her. name. but actually. it's a learning center run by an n.g.o.s children surprise me other than knowledge of how full eating their daily chores are but they see they have no other choice. but to. file must hire leading cause of household and the indian government has made a commitment to replace the. with gas and windows and a $50000000.00 homes according to official figures almost $71000000.00 have
12:33 pm
benefited from this so far but many of the poorest communities like these have yet to be reached that. being here has made me realize that denny's absolution comes from many sources big and small. it's all made worse by the city's unique job regime and atmospheric conditions but from other areas gets blown here and then gets trapped. what is surprising is that the fight for clean air was 1st spotted decades ago and partially won but experts say the gains have now been last week cleaned out the public transport sector we cleaned up the auto rickshaws the grass polluting sector but then.
