hello, i'm ros atkins, this is outside source. the trumpet meditation has done as it said it would. it's announced plans to stop a scheme that allowed young immigrants not to be to go to. the open—ended circumvention of immigration laws was an unconstitutional exercise of authority by the executive branch. russia warns the world that a military stand off with north korea threatens a global catastrophe. we will explain vladimir putin's position. hurricane irma strengthens to a category five storm as it heads to the northern caribbean. we are alive in the bbc newsroom, so we have questions on any stories we are covering. #bbcos is the hashtag. let's begin in washington.
the day started with this tweet @realdonaldtrump. .. congress, get ready to do yourjob — daca! that's a reference to mr trump's desire to scrap the deferred action for childhood arrivals. doing so could impact almost a million young immigrants. this system was brought in under president obama in 2012 and it allows people brought to the us illegally as children the temporary right to live, study and work legally in america. the plan is to wind the programme down over six months and to draw up a replacement at the same time. here's attorney generaljeff sessions making the announcement. i'm here today to announce that the programme known as daca that was effectuated under the obama administration is being rescinded. to have a lawful system of immigration that serves the national interest, we cannot admit everyone who would like to come here. it's just that simple. that would be an open borders policy and the american people have rightly rejected that.
therefore, the nation must set and enforce a limit on how many immigrants we admit each year and that means all cannot be accepted. this does not mean they are bad people or that our nation disrespects or demeans them in any way. it means we are properly enforcing laws as congress has passed on. barack obama ba rack obama has barack obama has posted it, and on facebook on this issue. he says... to give you the precise figure on this story, 790,000 have permanent. most of them come from four
countries, honduras, guatemala, el salvador and mexico. was live in california, texas, florida and new york. this is the senator of new york... similarsentiment from york. this is the senator of new york... similar sentiment from one of california balls senators. let's go to anthony zurcher, covering this in washington. although they may wa nt to in washington. although they may want to stop it, can these people stop it? congress can certainly stop it, they can pass legislation that effectively codifies the daca protections. they've been trying to do so for about 15 years. the courses they have come was 2010, when democrats controlled congress,
da ca when democrats controlled congress, daca protections passed through the house of representatives and were stymied in the senate, they couldn't get the 60 votes necessary to break every republican filibuster. this is something that american political establishment has seen as a problem for quite some time. these —— things we re for quite some time. these —— things were moving towards reform but then donald trump came in, running against immigration, condemning what he calls barack 0bama's unilateral action. he has the voters and done so. action. he has the voters and done so. congress is controlled by republicans. this is about whether the republican party will line up behind donald trump. that's a good question. since barack obama instituted daca and what a lot of these people out of a 2 million immigrants out of the shadows and
they have jobs and have gone to school, served in the us military, rescinding it is going to be a challenge and the reality is that there are more republican supporters for the daca protections than there we re for the daca protections than there were six years for the daca protections than there were six years ago, for the daca protections than there were six years ago, when they tried to pass it before. there is still a lot of support for... we might not be able to get 60 votes in senate. there are valid reasons why the republicans object to this. they see it as donald trump and jeff sessions, as giving an amnesty to people who came into this country illegally, even if they did so as children. tell me if i've understood this correctly. you bought a phrase from health care stories. is this a valid repealing and replacing. —— is this about repealing and replacing. do they have to come up with a new
system 7 do they have to come up with a new system? they could pass a straight up system? they could pass a straight up daca all that would say that people who have come under the age of16, people who have come under the age of 16, who have served in the nation for ten years, gone to college, served in the military, they could have normalised immigration staters, effectively given green card. that would be within the law. —— immigration status. we heard today about combat of immigration reform, where there is potentially daca in order to make democrats happy but also the wall. perhaps a merit based system would be an idea. it's going to be hard to find consensus. as we've seen, it's hard to find consensus within republican ranks let alone within democrats and
republicans together. we can hear from florida on the practical consequences later on in the show. president putin has blasted the idea of using tougher sanctions against north korea. translation: the use of sanctions of any kind in this case is already useless and inefficient. as i told my colleagues yesterday, they will eat grass but they will not give up this programme if they do not feel safe. that's the us ambassador — this is the us president. the rethink my sanchez will work on north korea? not necessarily but it cuts off the revenue that allows them to build ballistic missile.
that's the us ambassador — this is the us president. i am allowing japan and south korea to buy a substantially increased amount of highly sophisticated military equipment from the united states. this came in the around this time yesterday. that may be what president putin was referring to when he criticised military hysteria. the north koreans certainly aren't toning anything down. this ambassador to the un in geneva said this earlier. the recent self—defence images by my country, dprk, are gift packages addressed to none other than the us. the us will receive more gift packages from my country as long as it relies on reckless provocations and futile attempts to put pressure on the dprk. let's talk to barbara, live from
washington. the americans want these tougher sanctions. how will they get those through given the reservations of the chinese and russians? those through given the reservations of the chinese and russian57m looks of the chinese and russians7m looks as if they will have a battle doing that, especially after president putin's remarks today they wa nted president putin's remarks today they wanted to spend the next week discussing a resolution with the un. aside from mr putin's comments, the russian ambassador has said it is unrealistic to get it done so quickly. you see a different view of how things should proceed. the americans would agree that sanctions haven't worked but they say this is because they'd been incremental and have targeted the military infrastructure. now they should target the economy and could become intense so we need to have time to work. they need to be applied more intensely and there is the bloody pressure on that. they want to move
forward on that. —— there is a bit more pressure. the ultimate call is to get north korea to the table to discuss. china is worried about the north koreans but they will only go so north koreans but they will only go so far with sanctions. i think these divisions have always been there but they are becoming more pronounced as they are becoming more pronounced as the stakes get higher and as military rhetoric escalates and as north koreans show increasing sophistication with weapons and continue to save a woman for denuclearise. —— continue to say they will never denuclearise.” spoke to somebody that was with vikki childs with the state department in the 905. —— wa5 vikki childs with the state department in the 905. —— was with the state department. is there a sense that there is little they can do now? i think it's always been
that the options are not authentic. it has now come to a degree where we are focusing mind5. thi5 it has now come to a degree where we are focusing mind5. this is because the north koreans are correctly setting the us with credible threats. they now have mi55ile5 that could reach the us, they have nuclear warheads that, it seems, are assumed going to be able to be applied to those missiles, so that when the focus is much stronger. the question is if it's coming to a cri5i5 point, it will either call... its containment 5till cri5i5 point, it will either call... its containment still an option? will it go to military action? that i5 will it go to military action? that is no more appealing than when he spoke to this man in the 19905. if it goes to negotiations, will there bea it goes to negotiations, will there be a pod for its agreed that the general assumption of those negotiations will not be demilitarisation? will there be a cce pta nce demilitarisation? will there be acceptance of a freeze in the
programme? that is the point where a decision will need to be made. what a moment that would be where we got a moment that would be where we got a forgot that point. —— if we got to that point. that's the us side — for more on the russian reaction, i spoke to 0lga ivshina. the russian position hasn't changed for a while. they have always favoured a diplomatic solution. mr putin wants to underline that sanctions don't work and it echoes sanctions don't work and it echoes sanctions introduced against ru55ia. he mentioned that these sanctions didn't work as well. today he said that probably north koreans would eat gra55 but they won't give up their nuclear programme. he wants to underline that the diplomatic solution is preferable and that the influence that russia might have with the north korean leader.m also enjoying disagreeing with the
americans again. absolutely. there was the recent row over the weekend. the americans closed russian consulate in san francisco and two other premises. there was a huge row, russians are very angry, they say that it's a violation of diplomatic rules and, of course, mr putin uses this attempt to play on those contradictions and wants to show that he is important in the international arena and there are certain que5tion5 which he can influence and he tries to tie up those questions. for instance, north korea, with other5. such as syria and ukraine. although be attempts to close the gap? it depends. russia will try to close hold its ground and will try to tie tho5e close hold its ground and will try to tie those topics, which are important to the us at the moment, with the topics that russia wants to solve. two stories dominate our
attention in the recent days. that's one, this is the other, the plight of the rohingya mu5lim5. just in the last 2a was, the un has said that 35,000 people across the border from me and more into bangladesh. that takes the total for the last 11 days well over 100,000. that places a huge strain on bangladesh. he is the latest report from one of the refugee camps. the5e these are the latest batch of refugees that have come in. lots of woman and georgia as you can see. they are exhausted. whatever food they had to eat along the way has run out. some are dehydrated. the biggest thing is they have made it to relative safety. 0n
biggest thing is they have made it to relative safety. on that side is myanmay‘s rakhine state. —— myanmar. the5e myanmay‘s rakhine state. —— myanmar. these people are fleeing for their live5. these people are fleeing for their lives. they will now head to any kind of temporary soldier they can find. by the side of a hill, in5ide a building. it's starting to rain. —— temporary shelter. what will happen to them next? they have to be fed and will eventually need to find some place to live, some place to build the lives again. more background on rohingya on the bbc news website. in a few seconds, we will update you on hurricane irma. it's in the atlantic but heading towards the caribbean and florida. publisher and social services have
accepted the findings of... she was murdered by her mother catherine, 110w murdered by her mother catherine, now serving a 19 yearjail sentence. it was... health professionals say they didn't look into the circumstances enough, they didn't have that professional curiosity level they should have done. there i5 level they should have done. there is also a line saying that the professional system look at this and have enough focu5 professional system look at this and have enough focus on the period of the truck. for me, that's there to defend children and ensure that children get the help they need. that's absolutely britain. at the end of the day, this is a very fundable trials in a difficult situation with parents exhibiting high risk habits. it should be something which everyone should be on high alert for. —— this is a very fundable mac child.
we are like in the bbc newsroom. the trumpet initiation has announced that a scheme to protect young undocumented... the trump administration announces that a scheme to protected young undocumented immigrants in the united states from deportation is to be scrapped. russia warns the world that a military stand off with north korea threatens a global catastrophe. we will explain vladimir putin's po5ition. hurricane irma 5trengthen5 to a category five storm as it heads to the northern caribbean. saving government troops have been assisted by russian air strikes. the danish inventor and accused of killing a swedish traverse last month has told a court that she died when she got hit on behalf of by a heavy hatch cover. peter mad5en says he accidentally lost his footing, while holding the cover open for kim wall. many of you are reading this story on the news app. na5a are helping to
create the world's deepest colophon in an effort to tackle the decline of coral reefs. —— coralfarm. another hurricane is heading across the caribbean towards the us. its name is irma — and it's potentially catastrophic. the bbc‘s james cook is covering this. it's been called potentially catastrophic. the strongest ever recorded in the atlantic basin outside of the caribbean sea and gulf of mexico. you can understand by people are worried, looking at the pictures. —— why people. the screen is giving up the ghost slightly. some of the pictures are frightening and we know already that in florida people are stocking up on supplies, making preparations for the arrival. i've been speaking to bbc weather, just behind the outside
source screen, getting the help of them. this is the latest satellite picture we have of irma. before it —— we've heard that the wind inside the storm are 135 miles per, gusting over 200 miles an. there was one of the strongest atlantic hurricanes recorded. —— rob taylor with. it is middling westerleigh. it looks as though it is going to make landfall in antigua, early wickets to. after that, a westward journey, potentially towards the dominican republic and haiti. it will continue westward, always remaining ove rwate r, westward, always remaining overwater, continuing to fuel itself. when the systems which find they often we can because they lose their source of hot air from the
sea. this is calling on the northern coastal line of these islands, it will remain category five. torrential flooding will remain category five. torrentialflooding rain will remain category five. torrential flooding rain and significant storm surge. florida is on your map. can we be certain it will reach this far? models are agreeing it will reach towards the florida keys. some uncertainty as to where it will go, the gulf of mexico 01’ where it will go, the gulf of mexico or eastwards. it doesn't venture. in the atlantic, there is another tropical storm, jose, expected to become a hurricane again in the next 24 become a hurricane again in the next 2a overs. it might not follow the same path as minack, cut curving east. —— as irma, curving east. we've fixed the screen, let's talk about kenyan politics. yesterday we
heard that the presidential election will be run in october. today, this man, regulating gun scratch, said that he wouldn't take part without guarantees. he claimed the initial election result had been tampered with. the supreme court agreed, and not the result the original winner had been incompetent, uhuru kenyatta, he must now fight another election. he is the latest report. the national alliance or nasa has submitted a list of demands to be met before they participate in elections. they include the removal of top election official, including the ceo and an audit of the technology. greater openness when it
comes to organising the next election. he also ran for president, he is heading for court to contest the decision to only have two people on the ballot paper. all the other people are not be on the ballot. it's unconstitutional. it seems that they have learned from this problem. although they have been told they must have the next election in line with the law. a full report promised in 21 days. following the report, it was said that possible changes would be made as we prepare for the elections. it is not clear whether these changes will be affected before or after the elections. the electoral commission maybe ready to
hold a new election but the question remains whether the process will be credible, free and fair this time. back to the us, president trump's tax reform plans along with debt ceiling are among items on the agenda as congress returns. —— sealing. can you describe exactly what debt sealing is and why it on the agenda. congress has to approved any increase to the debt ceiling. it allows the government to continue function. it's running on a deficit and they have to say, yes, you can borrow more money in order to keep funding of debt. that closely relates to the second piece of business that is certainly going to be on the legislative agenda for congress, approving the government budget. there allow the government to continue functioning. these two
end up being somewhat related, although they are at two separate bills. they are coming to a head in about 25 days. it's after congress to try to make list to get an agreement. this should pass with no problems when it comes to government. they will probably use the stopgap measure to fund the government for the next six months. the debt ceiling issue is more complicated. there is a contingency in government that doesn't believe there the government should take on what it. with regards to tax cuts. we know what mr trump wants to do but where does congress fit into this? no doubt that tax reform is to happen in this country but come into some sort of happen in this country but come into some sort of consensus happen in this country but come into some sort of consensus in congress is the big difficulty. the last time there was a real overhaul of the us
tax code was in 1986, since then there has been no real coming together in terms of what needs to be done. that is going to be really difficult, despite the fact that we have seen that the republicans own both horses. there are some real stark differences in terms of what lawmakers want. — — stark differences in terms of what lawmakers want. —— holeable pulses. we have just had a tweet from the hill. debt ceiling may cause gop to struggle to pass tax reform. we will keep you up—to—date on all of that. i'll be back with another half hour ina i'll be back with another half hour in a moment. thank you very much forjoining me. welcome to the latest update on a
number weather stories we are tracking. let's go to the heart of the atlantic to bring you up—to—date with the progress of irma. whilst in the mid—atla ntic, with the progress of irma. whilst in the mid—atlantic, no great problem but it's going westward and is ever closer to all of these countries in the eastern end of the caribbean. this is a powerful storm indeed. they don't get much stronger than that. the central pressure has plummeted 200 magic name millibars. wednesday, it will be close to puerto rico, by thursday it will be further west and will be very close to both haiti and the dominican republic. thereafter, as a parrot., we suspect chris froome live close to cuba and the banners. —— we suspect it will mirror. i assure you
not an expanding storm is just that the uncertainty is greater. what is certain is that this is a powerful storm and will deliver extraordinarily amount of rain. the storm surge could amount to three meters. that storm structured life backin meters. that storm structured life back in the heart of africa. it's these thunderstorms that have caused not only hurricanes in the atlantic but extraordinary consequences in the rainy season in africa. ms mudslides and over 1000 casualties recorded. —— amendment applies. the disruption to normal life has been extensive. on britain's debt, a quiet a quiet affair on the atlas matters. these west african states would we might see the potential for some heavy downpours. all that we could drag some of that when further
south, then you're off the southern states in africa are experiencing crushing doubt. egypt, temperature in cairo pushing towards 35 degrees. across the mediterranean into europe, things are on the warm and pleasa nt europe, things are on the warm and pleasant sight across many of the southern states. for the north, as we have seen in the british isles, fronts are moving in from the atlantic, splitting a combination of wet and windy fear. further east, low— pressure wet and windy fear. further east, low—pressure giving unsubtle weather in russia. we'll just low—pressure giving unsubtle weather in russia. we'lljust have to wait a human rights for the forecast. —— wa key few minutes human rights for the forecast. —— wakey few minutes for the forecast. hello, this is outside source. the lead story, the trump administration told it was good to scrap the scheme told it was good to scrap the scheme to protect young undocumented
immigrant in the us from deportation. an open-ended circumvention of immigration law that was an unconstitutional exercise of authority by the executive branch. vladimir putin is warning the world that a military stand—off with north korea threatened a global catastrophe. the australian high court is hearing a legal challenge to a proposed postal vote on the legalisation of same—sex marriage. a report coming up. as russia continues to battle the islamic state group in syria, we will have the extraordinary story of the mountainous province of dagestan which has become a key
