7:09 am
part of our immigration system has is through the lottery system and so to try to argue that this is a system that thoroughly vets people it's just shows a total lack of understanding and public support does not appear to support the president in spite of the political atmosphere a majority of americans according to most polls believe that legal immigration benefits the united states can really help get al jazeera washington mammals leda soon she's making her first visit to rakhine states off the international criticism of her response to the range of crisis that's where. the muslims say they've been subjected to a brutal crackdown by mean mars military more than six hundred thousand people have fled what the u.s. called ethnic cleansing since august another two thousand have just crossed the border into bangladesh florence levy joins us live now from yangon florence and she will be visiting rakhine state for the first time what more can you tell us. that's right this is her first trip to recall in state since she took office in two

thousand and sixteen now and we've spoken to the spokesman for the government spokesman and he said she's accompanied by two other ministers the minister for home affairs as well as the minister from the state counselors office it's a day trip she's visiting she's going to be visiting more indoor township the place that's been worst hit by the military crackdown which the u.n. has termed a textbook example of ethnic cleansing now we don't really know yet much more details about this visit other sources tell us that she is going to be visiting a place called home pure let way this is a village where there was a refugee camp for internally displaced brokaw and villages as well as hindu villages but not muslim villages we don't yet know whether she's going to be visiting and he moves live villages or whether she'll be visiting places that have been burned down by a range of villagers saying they've been burned out by young mom military or kind which is mobs now of the state spokesman for rakhine state told us that her visit
7:11 am
will prove and show that there is stability in the state and certainly that is the message that the myanmar government has been trying to push in recent days they had an economic they had a meeting of business men and local politicians in situ a trying to encourage investment in recovering state saying that because stability has been regained in the area it is now time to think about economic development although what we're hearing on the ground is something that is extremely different villages tell us that they are still planning to leave the country many are already making their way to the border area with by saying they no longer feel it's safe to live in the country they've watched properties being looted right in front of their eyes for hours meanwhile thousands of russian german trapped on the border between me and mon bangladesh in no man's land what's the latest on the ground them. that's right now a report say that some of them that they're waiting for permission by bangladeshi
7:12 am
border guards for them to enter the country now i have to stress that this is not uncommon no on usual this is happened before but whether she authorities have the right to vet people before they allow them to enter the country and of course this will make life a lot more difficult than for the real hinge of villagers many of whom would have tried for several days with very little food and water just to get to the border area and this also serves to highlight and underscore just how difficult conditions must be for people in for a village is still in northern rakhine many of them would have heard from their friends and relatives who've made it into bangladesh about how difficult conditions are in the camps and they would have known about the difficult journeys they would have to undertake tracking for days or waiting by the beach for boats to bring them across yet many are still making that journey and what we've been hearing from villagers is that. they see their homes are still being burned now are they still

being threatened the this time not by and myanmar military but by rakhine but it's not so much so that they've made the difficult decision that they're going to leave their homes and their country behind to start a new life florence thank you of the u.s. congress is beginning to examine the official response to hurricane maria six weeks after the storm devastated the territory of puerto rico but there are accusations they only want to hear from those who give trump's administration a positive review the u.n. says the situation on the island remains alarming shopper chancy reports from washington d.c. . six weeks to the day after hurricane maria devastated puerto rico the mayor of san juan was scheduled to be giving testimony at a congressional hearing on the u.s. government's response not holding this press conference in a corridor on capitol hill thank you very much but the hearing was scrapped by republicans once they heard that a democratic congressman had invited the outspoken man to testify why do you think the republicans canceled today's hearings. i don't know the fact is that they did
7:14 am
not the fact is that with that they tried to silence the voices. and the voices that i represent and they did not accomplish i think they know it's very difficult . have a dialogue look good. actions look really bad so they know they haven't done. governor rick how to resale received a very different reception in washington d.c. he was invited to the white house where he thanked donald trump for his leadership the president appeared satisfied. how would you grade the white house. i too was a temp however it was clear that when the president. wouldn't have agreed in her testimony to congress president trump again lives in a reality that is just of his own doing well i was. water with human excrement and sleeping in
7:15 am
a cart. in san juan he was playing in mar-a lago so when you're live from that perspective it's not that you don't get it said you don't want to get the congressman who invited mccready's is disappointed. in the witness could tell the story like someone. involved in it so. we offer. but should we draw any conclusions from the fact that when they heard about the invitation they cancel the entire hearing well if they heard about it on friday. and also. leads me to believe they didn't want to hear. but both the congressman and the mayor are adamant that this is not over. washington also to come here not just taking a stand for women. contestants staged
