seek asylum in the u.s. when one's friend comes. course in guatemala blocks president jim marlice from signing a separate deal with the u.s. that would have designated the nation as a safe 3rd country mexico has also rejected the new meshes model repel the has the reaction from mexico city. there was pushback in mexico in response to that change in policy announced by the united states the asylum laws and i'll give you what we need to talk about the context here if you are a migrant traveling from central america say hunter is sort of solved or making your way through guatemala and through mexico that automatically disqualifies you from being able to seek asylum in the united states under this new policy now there's a reason why there's so much pushback here in mexico on one end mexico in the united states have no agreement that would force mexico to house asylum seekers that's something that mexico would have to ratify via legislation it would be up to the mexican congress to determine that mexico is to be designated
7:07 am
a quote unquote safe 3rd country without approval from congress mexico is in no way obligated to adopt or accommodate to this new change in policy in the united states this is something that the foreign minister of mexico my sent abroad has said is not going to happen the foreign minister has also said that he does not agree with this decision by the united states and in no way will mexico be changing its own immigration policies or its own asylum policies to accommodate for this new change in the united states furthermore this is one aspect of the migrant crisis that keeps getting brought up in this stemming the flow of migrants it being up to mexico to stem the flow of migrants that's the pressure that the united states has on mexico yet these policies do nothing to address the root causes of migration in central america countries like honduras guatemala as well as a salvator which are rampant political corruption widespread poverty and of course the high levels of violence plaguing these countries. jack kingston is a former republican congressman from georgia he was

a senior advisor to trump's 2016 presidential campaign he says the white house plan will keep people safe because people traffickers exploits migrants making the journey north every country has the right that control its borders that's why countries have borders and yet there are many democrats in the united states congress who support open borders and they even promise free healthcare if you sneak in here illegally and that is not the way to run a country again if you want to. allow in the legal number and by the way america i think allows more legal immigration than any other country in the world might be wrong about that but it's about a 1000000 people a year who come here legally and become citizens if you want to change that and have the debate that maybe the numbers of the 5000000 then the democrats in congress need to be working for that but the chaos not know what news coming is is absurd and it wasn't in controversy you know we say that's dangerous in the country
7:09 am
but you have to remember a lot of these people are used and absolutely exploiting kids it's almost a. situation where many many of the quote families don't even have a d.n.a. connection to their alleged children so if you talk about abused kids this is bait for people to abuse kids and many of these young girls are right along the way and they became victims of sex trafficking in. the world is a hard place and again if the democrats in congress really care about these people they would be argument to say we need to increase immigration from 1000000 to 5000000 a year are they should say we be we need to send economic aid and assistance to guatemala and honduras. the lower house of the u.s. congress has passed 2 bills on saudi arabia condemning human rights abuses and seeking accountability for the murder of society journalist jamal khashoggi it's also criticized riyadh for detaining female human rights activists. received an

7:11 am
number one the bill asked that the director of national intelligence dan coats provide answers to a series of very simple questions who planned ordered executed and then covered up the murder of a that's number one it's important to note that already the central and terror teligent say agency or cia in the u.s. has already identified saudi crown prince mohammed bin solomon as the one that ordered the murder of khashoggi but number 2 the 2nd part of this bill is that anyone then identified by the director of national intelligence as being part of in any way the murder of the shoji would then be sanctioned by the u.s. have their visa or ability to travel to the u.s. then revoked again already 17 saudis directly associated with the show murder are already sanctioned and and that those are the key elements of this bill so it's come on al-jazeera the monsoon rains have put the death toll is rising on the
