to hurt u.s. businesses but it is creating a hostile environment for these businesses to operate within and they want to try to curtail the trouble ministrations efforts to use tariffs to deal with all sorts of policy issues not just the economic ones well for more let's speak to stand the guy who is a resident scholar at the american enterprise institute and he joins us now live from washington d.c. stan the mexican foreign minister is already in d.c. in talks set for wednesday but mexico has already said it won't impose retaliatory sanctions or what options does it actually have in terms of trying to take the u.s. arm well mexico could obviously change its mind on terror but for now it seems like it's simply trying to give in to u.s. demands and hope that these tears will go away it's already stepped up immigration enforcement within mexico a little bit over the past few months. which you know is
a reversal for president lopez over there who is in part aleck that on a platform of treating central american migrants much more humanely i don't know why what the mexican government expects because clearly the this u.s. government is not a government that you can reach agreements with or you can then rely on they just renewed the free trade agreement with the u.s. and canada. and that is supposed to you know eliminate all there is between the 3 countries so i don't know what they're hoping for but i don't know they've put themselves in a weak spot start at me ask you about these potential types of migration controls are they a realistic possibility for mexico i mean it's a huge border do they have the resources to manage this presumably it'll have to be divestiture from elsewhere. well i mean obviously at the margin there is there are things they could do they can try to enforce the their their own southern border but ultimately what the u.s.
is asking them to do is to turn themselves into some sort of east germany where they they build walls and whatever else the make it impossible to leave mexico and that seems like a completely reasonable the band to make and stand well we just had a short while ago the mexican president mentioning international option took us what to what he could possibly do that well mexico can go through due to w t o and say hey look at the u.s. has in both of these ridiculous tariffs on. presumably what the u.s. will do and say is we're doing this for national security reasons which is what they have said about terror was imposed on canada and on the european union as well but obviously that process would not come to any kind of rapid conclusion and meanwhile the u.s. would presumably continue to ratchet up. the terror of the mexico could ultimately
get permission to to retaliate but that doesn't really help the situation either i mean i'll to muddly i think they need to try and come up with some sort of symbolic concession that can sell as a win which he likes to do like they did with nafta i read where nothing substantive changed in the in the trade agreement that the u.s. administration got to claim that it negotiated a much better deal than it previously ad i think that's the best way out for mexico i don't know to international legal procedures are going to get him very far stan think of that from the american enterprise institute speaking to us from washington d.c. thank you feel inside from al-jazeera. well let's also take a closer look at the escalating trade war between the u.s. and china beijing is imposing tariffs ranging from 5 to 25 percent on $60000000000.00 worth of american imports it's also planning to unveil a list of foreign companies that it considers unreliable that seen as
a response to u.s. attempts to block the global expansion of chinese tech giant huawei and china is threatening to restrict exports of rare earth minerals that many u.s. companies rely on an attendant as a china analyst and economist he says china is responding carefully in order to avoid hurting its own people. for china they see this is a multi front case of the united states taking security and trade and politics and combining them in and all kind of pressure front donald trump seems to be taking a blunderbuss or a shotgun to these particular issues not only in china but around the world for china it's much more of a issue of a rifle what they're doing is they're being instituted new tariffs today but those are very carefully calibrated to make sure that this is not going to rebound or there will be very little effect on chinese consumers there are no winners in a trade war and in this particular case it's not only the u.s.
and china involved it will be the whole world because what you're starting to see is this kind of contagion which is going to affect not only companies in the u.s. but other places if china goes ahead with any kind of reduction in the numbers of in the amounts of rare earths that are going to the united states that could be very very damaging specially over the short term it's very difficult to see how this is going to end if this kind of tit for tat thing goes on but beneath all of this it seems to be a tremendous amount of anger and concern in the united states i think mostly driven by the fact that over the last 30 years 90 percent of the american public has experienced 8.4 percent decrease in their real income meanwhile during that same period the u.s. was the lion's share of 2 thirds of the world's profits which are flowing to the developed world it just seems that this is that china's feels that it's being
singled out. well there's plenty more ahead for you this news hour including a disgruntled employee is named as the suspected gunman in the west masters in this year in the united states and a ringing endorsement from across the atlantic donald trump throws his weight behind bars johnson's campaign to be britain's next prime minister. victims of a canadian genocide that's how a landmark government inquiry has described canada's missing all matted indigenous women the report leaked to the media looked into the deaths and disappearances of 1200 indigenous women since 1980 but the exact number is the ought to be much higher it found the disproportionate level of violence faced by indigenous women due to deep rooted colonialism and state and action indigenous women make up 4 percent of canada's population but account for up to 24 percent of homicide victims
more than 2000 witnesses took part in the inquiry and clearing survivors and relatives of the missing women she had her tansey joins us now from gotta know in quebec she had some very strong language being used to has there been any official reaction to the leak of this report. no and we are all going on what was a a leak the commissioners who actually ran the inquiry say that don't go in to actually discuss the findings of this report the implications of this report until monday when that report is officially released in this building behind me the national museum of history in canada the use of the word genocide there is being welcomed in some quarters by indigenous leaders who a calling long calling for a specific inquiry in to the missing and murdered indigenous women and girls of canada however we have a major problem in that if this leak is correct and it's just another inquiry which
once again pinpoints the problems as being the history of social and economic exclusion for indigenous communities in canada the history of brutality of indifference of violence of racism institutionally in officially here in canada and also the all out cultural war that was declared by the canadian government over the over the river that is the canadian parliament it also a it was an official war to kind of destroy indigenous communities removes any vestiges of indigenous culture and once again we have a report that says this is why these are these are the circumstances in which in which contribute to the missing indigenous women and girls of canada we've heard it all before and in fact just straight off years ago we had a truth and reconciliation commission lots of lots of recommendations the same sort of reasons being being put as to why there are so many problems just untrue to the canadian prime minister who will be here on monday saying we will implement that will those recommendations he's barely implemented any of them 3 and
a half years later once again he'll be he'll be here on monday he's pledged to implement the recommendations we've got different figures as to how many at least under 25 maybe as many many as 300 recommendations pertaining to all aspects of canadian society we didn't do a very good job with the last report 3 and a half years ago so there's a great deal of skepticism now will be very interesting to see how how they put to rest that skepticism here on monday and she had this inquiry itself was controversial. right because even though again there was these calls for a very long time you got to look specifically at this particular issue the the thousands it's tools of missing indigenous women and girls. missing in canada the house to be a spotlight on this in particular but once you go girl and it was a very slow start it seemed a rather rather incompetent start perhaps at the beginning then once witnesses testify there were complaints about a lack of communication a lack of transparency there are also a lot of people who are very happy to testify i communicate very glad this is being
looked at so going to have to look at what's what comes out on monday from the commissioners again but there were those probably at least you know there were so resignations one commission it was a relief run by 5 commissioners other again before on monday and that will that commission has said was really revealing she said look the reason she resigned she said was because of the whole structure of the commission. was tell us your sad story will figure out what to do with you is just another attempt to top down the thames based on western law or and things like that which clearly indicates to be does have a lot of reason to be very wary of so there was a lot of suspicion we wait snow until monday when this is released and we start hearing what exactly is going to be done though out is there a shadow tansey across that story for us in cast and crew back thanks you have well kelly cottonelle is the executive director of the national indigenous survivors of child welfare network and also she shared some of her personal experience of the treatment of indigenous women. my sisters and i were a part of the 60s scoop which is
a term that's used to describe an era in canada where thousands and thousands of indigenous children were removed from their homes and communities and adopted into non-indigenous homes across canada overseas and until united states it was a mass trafficking of us and a lot of us ended up in really awful households not everybody but a lot of us did some of those homes are they violent and we ended up fleeing those homes to escape and ended up in you know really precarious vulnerable states as young adults which is what happened to my sisters and i we fled our adoptive home and ended up back in edmonton trying to find i'm biological family. a year after we found our biological family my older sister was murdered in a park downtown. and you know i was 16 at the time so i didn't realize
how insidious the media wise and there were all of they play and you know how they talk about s. and you know how they they almost make it seem that you know it's our fault that we've been murdered for the places that we you know we gravitate towards so. you know that was a really painful time for me. and then my sister in law she was also hound in a park not a park i'm sorry a field just outside of a task and in 2004 her case is unsolved but at that time there was over i don't know up to 20 indigenous women found in trials in ditches in and around and and and then many of those are still unsolved. now police in the u.s. state of virginia say the suspected gunman in friday's mass shooting appeared to have bought his weapons legally to weigh in cradock was an engineer for the city of the genea beach police say he shot and killed 12 of his coworkers in the worst mass
shooting in the u.s. this year how these are custer has more. the community of virginia beach remembers the 12 killed in friday's attack the military veteran who worked for 28 years as a city engineer the contractor visiting the government building to file a permit to their. to their friends and to their. they leave a void that we will never be able to feel police say the shooter was doing craddick he'd been working in the public utilities department for 15 years and had no criminal record police declined to give a possible motive officers killed craddock at the scene although they didn't have. engaged. once they are identified. and fire we immediately returned fire the weapon was a $45.00 caliber handgun with
a silencer and magazine extenders such extenders were once banned in the us but became legal again in 2004 democratic presidential hopefuls expressed outrage on twitter calling for more gun control but as images of the newest mass shooting played out on american television screens the public remains divided on what to do next. guns don't kill people people kill people. such attitudes still dominate washington where republicans swayed by the powerful n.r.a. gun lobby have consistently fought to preserve gun ownership rights i'm just going through a lot of emotion because it's way too much killing going on and i'm just glad that they alert. enough time the thoughts and prayers continue to pour in adding drops to a sea of grief in a nation where the pace of these mass shootings has dramatically accelerated but
the political will to stop them has not. castro al-jazeera virginia beach virginia . now still ahead on al-jazeera missing and mexico we speak to the families of victims and those behind the violence. and getting slapped around one fattened up the west of a cyclist after causing him to crash more with clear and it's course. hello the story of the spring and summer in the us hasn't necessarily been the tornadoes that have been many of them it's the persistent flooding on all the major rivers in central states really running out from new orleans or must towards the mountain states in the west is the main 3 major river systems missouri the ark and so on the
mississippi of course the rain it's falling into them just exacerbates that flooding there's not much more rain to come in the immediate future showers a bill they get in new mexico west texas this sort of area and they will tend to spread this general direction but mostly it's a sunny picture that's even true in toronto at 15 degrees probably feels beautiful on the pacific coast quite looking weather relatively warm and sunshine in the sky very nice now throughout the caribbean it has been particularly cloudy and quite wet reason there plenty of in the lesser antilles running up towards well almost a great chance he's just looking drier in haiti than of late cuba's das it was shot but i think the massive rain is probably on the potential for tropical circulation so around the yucatan so throughout mexico guatemala san salvador the potential for a very big dam pause exists just on sunday but also on monday think you better watch this area.

hello again i'm. reminded of the news this hour one person has been killed and 10 others injured in sudan's capital after security forces opened fire on protesters they've been camped outside the military headquarters for weeks to months and a civilian government. mexico's president has hinted that his country could tighten migration controls to diffuse u.s. president don't trump threats to impose tariffs on mexican goods meanwhile american ports have started collecting 25 percent tariffs on several goods coming from china . and
a national inquiry into missing or mudded indigenous women and canada has described them as victims of a genocide the government investigation looked into more than 1000 deaths or disappearances since the 1980 s. . now it's been 6 months since mexican president on the us manual look has obrador came to power one of his main challenges attacking the violence that's plagued his country for more than a decade has also made the issue of missing people a priority 40000 people have disappeared in mexico. since 2006 that means each year more than 3000 people are reported missing 26000 bodies remain unidentified in morgues and other locations and well over 300 bodies have been found and more than $200.00 hidden graves and the last 6 months alone as part of our special series marking 6 months of our battles government john holeman travel to santa lower to talk to the victims and perpetrators of mexico's violence. loose movie is sifting
through mud from the bottom of the can now trying to find the remains of her son he's been missing since armed men burst into his house and took him away that was 5 years ago finding pieces of his body is probably the closest to closure. i think about. my life gone through a 360 degree spin i don't have peace i can't sleep here waiting for someone to come and tell you he's there he was dumped here but 1000 questions were no answers. those questions are being asked by groups of relatives who are scouring the country looking for the 40000 missing for the 1st time we had the chance to put those questions to a man who admits disappearing people he works for the signal lower cartel i asked him why they hide their victims the answer he says is simple we're more than without a body there's no crime there it's war nobody knows. it's
a common belief in mexico's criminal world it's not completely accurate but the lack of a body doesn't make any murder investigation much harder but that's not the only reason gangsters disappear people it's also meant as a warning to kruger we have a saying it's a dodgy business but we play straight so when someone's given a chance to work in a zone to sell the product they don't pay their dues we make an example of them and say the other's work rate well the same is going to happen to you oh no but of course many of those who disappear in mexico as simply innocent bystanders that hasn't stopped the gangs from inflicting on thousands of families and then ending punishment. afterwards when you when you seen the results for the family how was that made you feel when they're still looking for their lost their lost relative and you know where they are when you know that at least they're dead but you don't tell them i mean how does it feel remorse. it's something that we know was painful
for the families sometimes they come and ask us and i know where the relative is but i can't tell them because i'll probably end up just like the victims maybe you feel bad because they could be your friends or people you know but there's nothing you can do. now the government has a new plan to find the disappeared it said unlimited funds will be made available to searching the forensic facilities to identify bodies. but that won't take away the motivation for criminal groups and certain authorities to hide their victims well that remains so too will these desperate search is lost loved ones john home and i would visit a similar. and on sunday we'll have more in our special series on the 6 months of the lopez obrador presidency well look at the steps the mexican government is taking to stem the soaring moderate $2800.00 was the most violent here since records began in mexico with 30000 killings a u.s.

the declining number of students attending the school some parents say instead of losing their children to these attacks they protect them from harm and send them to the labor market and said to make money. students here would have acted at least 14 times since the beginning of the school year the legal settlements are so close to me is that this school is exposed to regular attacks yet this is not the only risk palestinian students have to face. children's rights organizations say students are being traumatized by school demolitions checkpoints and harassment this video shows 9 year old isn't it is being detained during a lesson this really army told the children threw stones at israeli vehicles and the west bank and it says it has no choice but to interrogate an address children believed may be involved in violence but you are an organization say attacks on schools by stock those are increasing sometimes backed by israeli forces the
