9:11 pm
perhaps a human. could be enough of a relationship has been established so that i can say oh that was a kid who's been threatened with deportation i'm officials and i would chance does he hurt you feel for him and start thinking about his plight was one of the mothers in the tree or on the other hand if i'm honest he's a very difficult pupil who needs a lot of attention and takes up a lot of my thoughts. and energy on you. immediate. kill by telling john i feels the same way we do sad that he can't be with us right now and that we can't see him. if a mess so i think he probably misses as friends. you.
9:12 pm

9:13 pm
my you want to is kind of my mother has been very sad since the police came and i don't know what's going to happen he was supposed to get. he didn't get so much no i think that when i'm at school the police will come and get me in the home i would run away if. he could not. go to sleep. you know good note. i'm a real nice girl must. be . good. all right.
9:14 pm
and i gain. more than i have. thoughts are just how. i have lived. here a blooming leaf.
9:15 pm
they haven't retired. hello i'm looking for an apartment in hamburg. i've got a large family six people. six people meaning two adults and four children. four children my wife and me big family. this big family. and you want to know what the chances are of getting an apartment . for six people it's never easy in hamburg because more and more people are moving here a large apartments are getting increasingly harder to find. and you'll have to be patient. yes of course things. but i need an apartment in hamburg. for five rooms bedrooms and
9:16 pm
a living room. that's going to be tough but if we don't have an apartment for you we can always put you on a waiting list. because you're there to excuse me something could come up later but that may take some time. he how long. it always depends on whether someone else moves out that could take years under one. oh ok ok you need patience and a bit of luck. was the. result somebody. else wanted to try the will i've been looking for an apartment every day for six months to live as my hopefully i'll get lucky today.
9:17 pm
and the fact the listing said it had four rooms but there are no pictures of the interior. the remote location is great. is that we should take it. from one of. its. one of its. many of them are feeling about the people you can never get back to you
9:18 pm
or they turn you down because they don't want the refugees. cause we never want more than three or four people. with us so it's difficult it's very difficult and i have often enough i love my sense so many e-mails to real estate agents and housing exchanges essentially committed no i'm not the problem is that i can't communicate very well with a landlord who just doesn't know what i did you must ha and then. my german model isn't good enough that he should fill in a mystery come on top of a fish way a lot of this is of on with us is of us on the chateau not nec. let's see that was ninety percent of the landlords reject us how to load and i mean same believe in utah because the unemployment office pays a ransom the full. one little wish i was on in atlanta but i'll manage it so the machine i must are going to somehow will manage. hyson but your name shall i say you say. i'm not the high some do not miss the

9:24 pm
a man and that asked out of the family now lives at the other end of the city and in the long run it's not really practical for him to make the trip to school by himself or have his mother bring times i like that. but we'd all like to see john there rejoin the class he wants to in the other kids do two things earlier parents decided we would take turns picking him up and taking him back home so that he can rejoin the class them a janitor and have his. more of a normal life it's an excess of the income and some position. and i don't. know what's inside it such as that's and i was in the short time since we last saw each other a lot has happened. i filed an application for your children with the federal office unfortunately it was very quickly rejected because the phone for months if an application is rejected it doesn't have the effect of pushing back the deadlines
9:25 pm
she. just i'm in good mood it means is the immigration authority is allowed to deport people before the court even decides on their appeals could lift will help. to prevent that we had to apply for an injunction and. we wrote that the children would be in grave danger if they were deported. no we can only hope someone reads our appeal at least. once a month i druther move back to where we used to live in the us in the district the school is so far away over an hour janet doesn't want to change schools. i can understand that he needs to build a t. he wants to know that he'll be able to see his friends and not be taken somewhere else next month. that's terrible for a child of course and he. was

9:41 pm
this is g.w. news my vote from berlin the british prime minister theresa may suffer as a blow to her breaks it bill a group of rebel lawmakers from within her party sway a key vote now parliament has the final say on any exit agreement with the european union what does this mean for moving forward and from a future we'll ask our london correspondent also coming up leaders of islamic countries and meet in turkey and declare east jerusalem the capital of palestine
9:42 pm
turkey's president urges the rest of the world to do the say will go live to its temple and jerusalem for reactions plus a stunning victory for u.s. democrats doug jones claims victory in alabama's u.s. senate race a major setback for the republican party that could alter the balance of power in the u.s. congress. i'm bringing off it's good to have you with us tonight shock result from britain's house of commons members of parliament gift giving themselves the authority to veto the government's final breck's it deal in a defeat for prime minister to resign may about ten members of her conservative party who sided with opposition lawmakers to pass an amendment that may's government had opposed now this amendment gives the house final say on whether or
9:43 pm
not they can approve the e.u. with withdrawal bill that converts thousands of e.u. laws into british law on the day that the u.k. leaves europe in march twenty ninth. for more on this now we want to go to london our correspondent is on the story for us good evening to you begin so walk us through the vote that just took place. well it was something that was highly contested and there was debate about it for days probably even weeks and the government really tried until the last moment to persuade their own m.p.'s of their own good intentions the e.u. withdrawal that as you said it's all about transferring e.u. law into british law and how is the government going to go about it parliament is saying we want to have a say we don't want the government to have too much power we want to have a say in how bracks it basically is shaped and how the whole process
9:44 pm
a said it was all about taking back control this was the slogan of the breaks it is so we want to have that control we don't want this just to be decided by parliament the government tried to get their way they tried to persuade people from their own parties m.p.'s from their own parties to go with them but they did not succeed and this amendment got through where basically parliamentarians are saying we have to show the way not just the government and so what does this mean then for going forward with bricks or. well first of all it's something that's internal it doesn't mean anything for example for the council that is happening tomorrow and friday in brussels but of course it's symbolic it's political it's something that's an internal u.k. process but the e.u. has a strong interest in having a strong british government they want to negotiate with the british government that is stable and that gets there everything that they promise that gets it through so
9:45 pm
it makes everything more tricky then again to resign may only has a very very thin majority in parliament she has she has the support of the north northern irish unionists but it shows that the majority is so thin so if some rebels go with the opposition she is on thin ice yeah and what does this mean for her and her government moving forward it's a show you situation at best it's a tricky situation at best and the reason may and that was also showed in the run up to this crucial vote really try to get her people on board because she knows that she is vulnerable and that she doesn't have the support of several members also of her party there are quite a few rebels in the conservative party that don't want to go ahead with a hard brick said with leaving the single market leaving the customs union and
9:46 pm
they're really trying to influence everything that is done in brussels and they do everything they can and this just shows that reason may is vulnerable and that her bricks of the cause for the bricks that she has set is not just determined by her is determined by the cabinet but also by the members of parliament or corresponded bigamous on the story for us tonight with that breaking news from london because thank you very much. well more than fifty muslim countries have agreed to recognize east jerusalem as the capital of palestine now it came during an emergency summit of the organization of islamic cooperation convened in stamboul by turkey's president. he has urged the rest of the world to follow suit he says that u.s. president donald trump's decision last week to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital is a quote red line for muslims. the aim to
9:47 pm
present a united front against the decision that's roiled muslims worldwide herron a stumble donald trump's move to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital has been condemned turkish president retch up tie up at one host at the summit. as islamic countries we will never give up on our demand of a sovereign and independent palestine with jerusalem as its capital. jerusalem status is at the core of the decades long as really palestinian conflict israel sees the eastern half of the city in the one nine hundred sixty seven war it controls the city's west before the palestinians hope east jerusalem will be the capital of their future state now the summit has backed best chance donald trump pair on a visit to the city in may has been seen as siding with israelis and the conflict through his recognition of jerusalem as that capital palestinian president mahmoud
9:48 pm
abbas has vowed to take the matter to the u.n. council to try and block washington's decision. but israeli leaders believe they too have international backing. all of these declarations do not impress us. in the end the truth will prevail and many countries will recognize drusilla as the capital of israel and move their embassies there too. meanwhile violent clashes continued between palestinians and israeli troops and the west bank protests that the second week with no end in sight. our correspondent dorian jones has been covering the summit for worse he joins me along with our jerusalem correspondent tanya kramer she is monitoring developments from there to both of you good evening to you let me begin with you why hasn't
9:49 pm
israel reacted more strongly to this declaration. that the statement of the summit would really shake up israeli politics over here we just heard the statement by this very prime minister netanyahu saying that the statements they don't to really impress israel and i think israeli officials from their point of view they're not seeing the our. as so united as you could say from that statement all the arab states to have their own strategic interests and also there are a lot of other problems here in the region so i think dave all the take here in israel the attitude of wait and see and see how this will unfold in the next coming days and weeks and dorian how our muslim leaders how are they planning to turn their words today into actions in the future. well i think we will see
9:50 pm
a question if it has diplomatic offensive to achieve these goals it will be confined to the muslim world but also beyond that particularly europe is seen as a key target and one can imagine that the turkish president will be playing a very much leading role in this and they feel very much. infused them boys by the fact that they see trump very isolated over his move ever jerusalem even from his key allies and they believe that the reason momentum that that can sustain and help to achieve these goals of securing the recognition of east jerusalem for the palestinians and mahmoud abbas the palestinian leader also went further he's looking for possible economic sanctions against israel. more impetus to the boy called to be israel they very much believe that there is momentum now following the controversial move by trump and how or has today's summit has it done anything to bridge the divisions in the muslim world that you know that tanya was talking about
9:51 pm
. well very much not the fact the the heads of state from saudi arabia and egypt did not attend ball seen as a major snow up to this summit there is this growing feeling that and you hear this increasingly from turkish officials. saudi arabia impossibly. tacit approval to trump's move over jerusalem there is this belief that saudi arabia and egypt all forming some kind of access with these rail and the united states against they're wrong and the latest actions by these countries what many took four minutes to describe is a week voices from source in arab countries referring to saudi arabia is further evidence in the belief and fear is that this will further of polarize the region already deeply divided between the blocs back in saudi arabia and those backing iran and this present a controversy will only fuel and further deepen the divide within the region and
9:52 pm
this declaration that we saw today is it going to be enough for palestinian leaders . well i think it's what dorian said i mean that is just momentum and i think it was very important for a palestinian leader mahmoud abbas there but the question is we don't know what will follow out of all of this and you have to know that president abbas is very much under domestic pressure as well to find an answer to deliver something i mean i've been talking to palestinian officials in the past days a lot of meetings going on there and a lot of ideas floating and beyond you know more king away from the u.s. as the main sponsor for peace talks they're talking about maybe joining more international organizations rethinking the role of the post you know authority a calling again on the u.n. but the question is will this be enough for the palestinian people and when you talk to people here they're saying you know enough of all those meetings enough of all those statements and red lines being crossed you want to see what kind of response are you going to have but they're also quite realistic they know that the
9:53 pm
decision taken by the trumpet ministration will not be reversed anytime soon. our correspondents tanya kramer on the story in jerusalem and dorian jones reporting tonight from istanbul to both of you you thank. here are some of the other stories now that are making headlines around the world a head on collision inside switzerland road tunnel forced authorities to close the seventeen kilometer alpine link earlier today two people were killed and several injured after a truck collided with a car authorities have since reopened the tunnel after clearing wreckage and checking the tunnels structural condition in france will completely ban smartphones from public schools beginning next september the education minister today said an existing ban on the devices during classes will be expanded to include the school's . parent groups have boy skepticism saying that the ban will be impossible to
9:54 pm
enforce. firefighters have contained only twenty percent of a massive blaze that has reached california santa barbara county the wildfire has been raging across the los angeles region for two weeks burning down more than nine hundred homes and other buildings tens of thousands of people have been forced to evacuate. staying in the u.s. in what's being seen as a major setback for u.s. president donald trump the democratic candidate doug jones won a u.s. senate seat in the deeply conservative republican state of alabama the result has a significant knock on effect in washington shrinking the republican senate majority from two votes to just one. of all the states in which the democratic fight should take shape alabama was an unlikely starting point the poxy has not won a senate seat here in a quarter of
9:55 pm
a century. rehab just around the state of alabama though we have shown the country the way their real of was and the celebrations here on much to the control they say surrounding his opponent barely or in the day the republican crusader roy moore had hoped his horse named sassy would carry him to victory. it was the final bed to cast him as a thorough bred conservative in a campaign marred by multiple allegations from women claiming he had molested them decades ago when they were teenagers even for high ranking republicans moore's actions and policies were beyond the pale he believes homosexuality should be illegal and that moved them shouldn't serve in congress.
9:56 pm
for donald trump the only thing that mattered was moore's loyalty to his vision the president has congratulated doug jones on a hard fought victory but said votes cast for a third candidate harmed the right ten vote played a very big factor he tweeted bought a win is a win not so. he has refused to concede. but the votes are still coming in and we're looking at then by god bless you as you go along may give the safe journey and thank you for coming tonight we are not over it's going to take some time i'm. but it is democrats who are smiling having narrowed the republicans majority in the senate to just one day say as they say a sign of success is to come in crucial elections next year. that is the hope let's go now to washington our correspondent course in phenomenas on
9:57 pm
the story force good evening to you carson so we've got the day after the election are we looking at a new political reality for u.s. president donald trump. so this election in a bamma has definitely tanishq donald trump's image as someone who knows his base better than anyone and as someone who can deliver wins for the republican party clearly that will make republicans in the country starts to think whether they need an endorsement from donald trump if it will help them or if they can't distance themselves from him to some extent at least of course donald trump remains very popular among the republican base and so therefore. he has a lot of power over the republican party and its representatives in congress but
9:58 pm
clearly the all of invincibility has goal and the democrats have smelled blood and they would be on the attack from now on and how much of a blow is this then for the republican party particularly when we're looking at the legislation that they planned and that they would like to see passed. it will get more complicated for them they can only lose one votes now even on those issues where they need only a simple majority and in many cases they can't even agree among themselves what they want plus there are a number of senators that have been deeply alienated by it on the trump people like bob corker john mccain jeff flake susan collins and they might vote against donald trump gender at any given time and do this all over the question here are democrats celebrating their comeback did they win this election or did the republicans choose
9:59 pm
a flawed candidate i think it's mostly due to roy moore who has very extreme political views even for alabama standards and clearly the republican establishment in washington didn't want him in the first place he was forced on them by the populist nationalist wing of the party and has been this civil war within the republican party going on and that continues to weaken the republican party and what about this victory for the democrats me what does it mean and i'm thinking about you know next year's congressional midterm elections. it clearly the democrats have some reason for hope now because their base not only was energized but it actually turned out to vote even many independents voted for the democratic party in alabama so they have hope now that they can actually win
10:00 pm
both chambers of congress next year having said that for that they still have to work oh it's their own issues there's also a battle within the democratic party for the right way forward and they need a positive message just saying we are against trump will not be enough or at a corresponding course in phenomenon the story for us tonight in washington carson thank you very much. you're watching t.w. news coming up he's a british cycling icon and he failed a drug test there he is we'll talk about what this could mean for chris from. the bike and now onto the road to money the federal reserve has raised interest rates for a third time this year crystal that's right brant and it is a vote of confidence that the u.s. economy remains on solid footing more than eight years after the great recession the fed pushed the benchmark rate to between one point two five and one and
10:01 pm
a half percent that is the third time that the fed raises interest rates this year now after years of holding rates near zero to combat the effects of the financial crisis the fed raised rates for the first time in twenty fifteen and since then they have been gentle lifts to ease the economy back into rates driven monetary policy the central bank said it expects the job market and the economy to strengthen further and predicts three more rate rises next year not despite the increase in the cost of borrowing firms seem confident a strong economy will make up for that for more let's bring in our wall street correspondent sophie she a month ski so if the u.s. economy seems to be in robust shape does the federal reserve see any risks to this economic upswing. well i think it's safe to say that there is just not that much downside that the federal reserve bank is seeing em and they were pretty happy with the development in the labor market they were pretty happy with g.d.p.
10:02 pm
growth so definitely two important factors that also have a big impact on monetary policy so i think there's one point that the fed is probably going to monitor closely as a potential risk and it's inflation because it's still not the at the two percent level where the federal reserve bank wants it to see it and let me say one more thing techs reform of course is going to have a huge impact on the american economy that's on the monetary policy though so this is probably going to be another factor that they're going to monitor really closely and sophie janet yellen stir missouri said the chairwoman will come to close next year there won't be another as by decree of donald trump how do people in the financial world look back at her time in office. well given was never really popular on wall street but i think you can say that she was always
10:03 pm
respected and of course many people accused her of being too darvish of not moving or not moving quickly enough in terms of monetary policy but i think her record speaks for itself and everyone here has knowledge this at the same time she was the first one to raise interest rates in a decade after the financial crisis and we just talked about the low unemployment rate we talked about strong g.d.p. growth of course these are all things that people consider as a success for yellen as well and on top of that the fact that trump nominated someone who's pretty much in line with the monetary policy approach that yellen always had drawn power as told also that it's been considered as a successful way of kind of interaction between the markets and the fed. so few months giving us the view from wall street sophie thank you so much and there's a trade war brewing between the united states and canada they are reports canada's
10:04 pm
dropped plans to buy eight hundred fighter jets from boeing over disputes with the neighbor in the south now the deal would have been worth well over five billion dollars and was part of an upgrade of the entire canadian fleet but it collapsed after the u.s. imposed duties of three hundred percent on c. series jets made by canada's biggest plane maker bot earlier this year the company accused of dumping airliners on the american market both countries are locked in increasingly difficult talks over the north american free trade agreement. germany's chancellor is launching a second attempt to form a new government following september's elections brant has the story that's right christoph previous bid collapsed after the free democrats pulled out of talks with the conservatives and the green party a social democrat conference recently gave party leaders the go ahead to begin coalition talks with americans conservatives initial discussions are taking place
10:05 pm
