a range of departments including passport and visa services immigration is at the heart of the dispute democrats want funding tied to protection of undocumented migrants who enter the u.s. as children republicans and democrats are blaming each other for the impasse castro has wore for washington d.c. . the shutdown of the u.s. government will stretch into a third day this is after the faint glimmer of hope to achieve an overnight compromise was dashed when senate democrats announced that yet there was still no deal now the next possible vote would come at noon monday but on an elusive compromise that has yet to be reached a group of bipartisan centrist senators have been working behind closed doors to reach that compromise so far what's been discussed is a temporary measure to reopen the government until february eighth and then to address immigration that may be a hard pill for democrats to swallow they see this as their opportunity to leverage

the budget in order to help the eight hundred thousand young undocumented immigrants hold dreamers were brought to this country illegally as children meanwhile u.s. president donald trump one time said he wish to help you legalize those young people has now in recent days turned back on that stance playing to his base and saying he wants a harder stance on immigration with these shifting stances and with the finger pointing coming from trump's account on twitter it remains to be seen when and if a compromise to reopen the federal government will occur g.s.a. though is a professor of political science at iona college she says the shutdown isn't in the president's hands. there's not much the president can do except use his bully pulpit to try to convince either the american people to convince their senators or the senators themselves to get the government open and the president i think is
7:04 am
feeling a bit of frustration because if you recall in two thousand and thirteen he roundly criticized president obama for not having the skills and the leadership to strike a deal to bring people together and strike a deal well it's easier said than done as he's finding out today the fact that we have a divided system with a huge division between the executive and the senate and in the house means that congress can absolutely hold the country hostage republicans did it over obamacare in two thousand and thirteen it had been done previously during the clinton administration and it's being done now and i think you know depending on where you sit you may think that dach is such an important issue that the democrats are right to do this other people thought obamacare was such an important issue and should be repealed that the republicans were right so it's really a question comes down to where you sit on the partisan spectrum as to whether you think this kind of tactic is worth it or not and democrats certainly feel that dhaka is such a key emotional issue and that there is so much support even amongst republicans
7:05 am
for making sure that these quote unquote dreamers who are brought here as children are protected that they feel that they're in the right to do this and they're unwilling to go along with republicans opening the government and then saying we'll deal with dhaka later. the u.s. says turkey to use restraint and its operation against kurdish fighters in northern syria turkish soldiers have entered the enclave of a frame part of an assault to drive out kurdish peoples protection units or wiping his presence is vowing to crush the group which he views as a terrorist organization seventy deca reports. the border echoes with the sounds of war turkey's offensive on africa is now well underway the ground operation started on sunday turkish soldiers supporting free syrian army fighters inside syria. turkish president brigitte type edging defiant as he addressed a large crowd in the situation. this is
7:06 am
a national struggle and then this national struggle we will crush anyone who stands against us let this be known. it's been a week of rhetoric politicians promising that turkey was going to attack a free to rid of the y.p. g. kurdish fighters that ankara considers terrorists but they're also the u.s. is best ally on the ground in fighting isis regardless of international complications turkey is fully committed to this offensive we're in turkey's border with africa and throughout the day we've heard the sound of jets in the sky also intense artillery and machine gun fire outgoing from a turkish base behind that mountain although why p.g. are extremely well trained they know the terrain in offering but turkey has superiority when it comes to the skies and that gives it a huge advantage. belligerence here heard the airstrikes late on saturday is turkey started its offensive and they are a little uneasy. although most. here we are right next to the
7:07 am
action with planes flying over our heads on the lot of shelling of course we are confident but at the end of the day anything can happen shells have already fallen in turkey so we are worried this could happen here. turkey says it will continue its operation until it's pushed the y. p.g. away from its borders no one knows how long that will take what the implications may be. stephanie differences you're on the turkey syria border. first max out is the atom faster of chill at george washington university he says the u.s. could turn a blind eye to the taxman has to help ration there's certainly a domestic component to all the rhetoric coming out of turkey and even here in washington there's an understanding of why president early one needs to conduct its military operation in fact i would go as far as saying and there there might be even a tacit acceptance that as long as circus troops remain on the west bank of the euphrates river but washington might decide to look the other way and not come to the
7:08 am
assistant of its kurdish allies on the ground now if turkey decides to cross the river to the east side that's a whole different story because that's where u.s. national interests are at stake i think washington after quite some time president trump coming into office articulated a syria policy one that aims to preserve u.s. gains in syria the u.s. had been involved in trying to push isis out and now that they have they want to hold on to the territory that they and their allies have and also to try and put some pressure on iran in syria financial pressure because they are rainy and spent up to fifteen billion dollars a year in supporting the assad regime and that territory that the u.s. is holding on to is very rich in natural resources including oil there's the euphrates dam and there's also a very agricultural agriculturally rich land in that area so this is part of a broader geo political calculus for washington why they want to remain in that part of syria u.s.

vice president mike pence is in israel as part of his middle east told that promise of benjamin netanyahu has called him as a great friend but palestinians in the west bank protest his rival from jordan it's the highest level u.s. visit since president tom's decision to recognize two islam as israel's capital in december in jordan he agreed to disagree with king abdullah says high falsetto put some occupied east jerusalem. on the second leg of his regional visit the u.s. vice president was keen to offer assurances to a major middle east an ally and by extension to the palestinians who refused to meet him on the issue of jerusalem we are committed to continue to respect jordan's role as the custodian of holy sites that we take no position on boundaries in final status those are subject to negotiation and and as i think clearly you are the president make clear the world you know the states of america remains committed if the parties agree to
7:10 am
a two state solution through the arab world's public outrage with a recognition by u.s. president donald trump objects to slim is israel's capital the jordanian king offered a conciliatory tone your visits here i'm sure is to rebuild the trust confidence in not only how we move forward two state solution on us drew forth like sixty seven lice and he's jewish as a capital opening up and a palestinian state but living side by side with a secure recognisance ready course for internationals he said that's far from the line being taken by the palestinian leadership its president mahmoud abbas declaring that the u.s. had given it the slap of the century reiterating his position that the u.s. could no longer be involved in the peace process the u.s. vice president isn't meeting the palestinians but he does have a message publicly apparently tailored towards them reiterating u.s. support for a two state solution if that's what both sides agreed to of course for the palestinians that message is entirely overshadowed by what donald trump said over
7:11 am
a month ago declaring that the u.s. view jerusalem as israel's capital. but many the messenger himself is part of the problem the shift in u.s. policy with which pence was closely associated was welcomed by his evangelical christian base many of whom believe the return of the jews to the holy land is a precursor to jesus' second coming there ben says and gender that is extremist fundamentalist looked. this absolutely is the geology which goes against all the beliefs and commitments of the arab and palestinian christians and particular and they feel that they have been betrayed by somebody who is. tremendous injustice using diligent as a justification for israelis it's a different picture hence represents a u.s. administration to recognize what they see as an uncontroversial reality jerusalem status is the capital of your view. a great friend of the state of israel arrives
7:12 am
here this evening a true friend united states vice president mike pence we welcome him here and i'm looking forward to our discussions we will discuss the trumpet ministrations efforts to hold iran's aggression the iranian nuclear program and ways to advance peace and security in the region. before leaving jordan for israel pence visited u.s. troops didn't undisclosed location on the syrian border telling the president had back that isis would be driven from the earth very soon his next speech would be to the israeli parliament the knesset on monday israeli palestinian representatives about to boycott the event. how does iraq occupied east jerusalem. israel. says chum stand is consistent with what many u.s. presidents want it. in jordan it was clear that king abdullah i did not agree with the united states position on this regard. like it was mentioned
7:13 am
in the program to agree to disagree and was left very much as such by the private by the king and rightfully so that the united states should pursue actively still the two state solution. as far as jordan go as far as israel is concerned i think we ought to remember that paints himself is a myth jellicoe. trump's base is in belgium a cult so to suggest that the tram could change is my that is not going to happen so in israel places be very very warmly obviously and nothing will change there as far as the recognizer of your resume is concerned in this regard you know tromso being rather consistent just also remember that many many presidents before him several have recognized said they would recognize israel the situation i mean jerusalem as israel's capital they did not go through because of
7:14 am
the political resistance and opposition that they expected to take place for the middle east my concern here is that what a bad position is i think he's focused on the on the. the concept rather than the content of the decoration if i were arbaaz i would focus on the second part of the declaration would say that the borders to find the borders are to be determined later that's where the palestinian authority is positioned focus should that be in rather than focusing on the concept itself. still ahead here on al-jazeera the economy struggles under israeli blockade find out why business leaders in gaza after called for strike. violence breaks out during anti-government protests in the democratic republic of congo.
7:15 am
through tranquil rave you can you. do not. and if it means going to live. hello there we've had a fair amount of unsettled weather across the middle east recently one weather system in the eastern part of our map spiraling its way through parts of iran gradually edging its way eastwards but this one is largely fizzling out now so just a few outbreaks of like to rain and snow with it makes its way across afghanistan there on monday instead we're seeing some wetter more active weather towards the west and look what's happening over turkey some strong winds and heavy rain and for some of us some snow at times as well in the systems still with us as we head through choose day vote on tuesday it's pushing further south so many of us through lebanon are likely to see some of the heavy rain as well high rather murky and cool conditions here before the towards the south of course we had a bit of a dust storm here in doha that's cleared away there and twenty three degrees will be the maximum on monday as we head through into tuesday doesn't look that they'll be a great deal of difference for us here in doha but you can see the next belt of cloud
7:16 am
is just edging its way southwards and that could squeeze out the old shower and kick up a fair amount of dust as well even further towards the south after some of us here it's pretty wet you can see that area of rain that stretches all the way from angola there all the way across towards madagascar lots of heavy rain here once more and we're also seeing for very wet weather in south africa as well particularly for the eastern parts of south africa looks very way. there with sponsored by qatar airways. news has never been more available it's a constant barrage the butler. every day but the message is simplistic you have this brain good logical rational person crazy monsters and misinformation is rife dismissal and does not hold well documented accusations and evidence is part of genocide the listening post provides a critical counterpoint challenging mainstream media narratives of this time on
7:17 am
al-jazeera. and again you know what god is there has a reminder of our top stories this hour a u.s. government several hours money for federal agencies was cut off after the bill failed to pass on saturday. the u.s. says. restraint in this operation against kurdish fighters in northern syria after soldiers event at the enclave of offering to drive out fighters from cutters people protection units known as the white peachy. and u.s. vice president mike pence as arrived in israel the latest stop on his tour of the region it's the highest level u.s. visit since president thompson to recognize true islam as israel's capital in
7:18 am
december and jordan great to agreeing to disagree with king abdullah over the two islam decision. on a few hours' time this isn't gaza will go on strike to protest about the failing economy economists have also since living abroad to send money to their families in the hope of reviving it that unemployment is still at a record high as israel's blockade continues for an eleventh here and one kong has more from gaza city. on monday this busy shopping district will fall silent as workers and businesses join the strike and it's not just here shops factories restaurants and hotels are all expected to take part across the gaza strip doors will close machines will be turned off and work will stop from eight in the morning to six hours the strips of main commercial organization called the strike. we wish through this strike send the message to our leaders arab leaders international leaders and to the united nations the gaza strip will collapse in and
7:19 am
we need immediate help if the economy collapses it will have impacts everywhere health education and also. businessmen to listening and they want to take part they say things are getting desperate and there's no money in the economy. all god's eye will be closed we will be on strike and we want the world to listen to know our suffering and help us to find a solution gaza is reaching breaking point. but any impact of the strike outside of gaza is likely to be small but whether the international community and the world are going to listen or not but i think this is a direct message to israel who is besieging getting the gaza strip to pay attention to what is happening in terms of the humanitarian crisis that is happening here in gaza for more than ten years the gaza strip has been under siege by israel it controls what gets in and out and restricts everything from consumer goods to
7:20 am
construction materials. israel says it won't lift the siege on gaza. up until recently but now it's under the control of the palestinian authority it won't disarm until the end of the occupation now the strike is likely to have an impact only have an impact on israel it's unlikely because of the hard line position like a man called algiers or. the united nations as long as the largest humanitarian a pail yemen is asking for almost three billion dollars in the nation's almost three years of saudi led airstrikes and fighting with his the rebels left forty five percent of the population in desperate need of lifesaving assistance. at least six people have been killed and several injured following clashes between police and protesters and democratic republic of congo the anti-government demonstrators were organized by leaders of the catholic church in the country are angry at the
7:21 am
delay in holding a presidential election after president joseph kabila final term expired and twenty sixteen catherine so i reports. after morning mass at the main catholic church in kinshasa washee pairs begin their latest protest march current tweaks their rosaries and by post they are angry that a charge broke a political deal between the ruling and opposition parties that could have seen a presidential election held last december has not been one that they did not go far police had blocked the route refusing to allow them to move forward and when the march is still there ground this happened. police and presidential guards against stone throwing protesters several people were killed others injured some with gunshot wounds healed obviously we have to much we were following the instructions. it was a piece of protest but the police would not let us. in the east of the country
7:22 am
police gas inside this chart. the service had just ended and the faithful are about to start their part has several people here also injured oh i do not want to go bottom i don't respect people's rights. he's even throwing tear gas into the church we will not accept he must go his mandate is over. a new year's eve there was similar violent confrontations during demonstrations. this incident beginning of the. remember the killed six people in december logically people should have been afraid but it's the country that is happening now so this pressure is going to increase. that the government says the protests are equal chachi does and opposition politicians and ceased they will not give up their demand for change. this road in the city has now been cleared by police but it's still very very tense
7:23 am
people here are very frustrated about the political situation and saying that they have lost confidence in the politicians in the political system and that's why they're looking more to the catholic church to provide guidance and leadership in this difficult political time. with a membership of close to half the eighty million congolese population the catholic church is hugely significant and many people hope it may be the catalyst that will finally see a free fair and credible election without president joseph kabila in the running catching saudi al-jazeera kinshasa. a motorcycle bomb as exposed as a market in southern thailand killing three people and injuring dozens more that happened in the southern province of yala no one has claimed responsibility it's the first attack of its kind in months in the region muslims have been fighting for ptolemy. a plan to repatriate hundreds of thousands of refugees two million march
7:24 am
two to begin on tuesday bangladesh and main margrave to send back around seven hundred fifty thousand refugees who fled ethnic violence in iraq and states since october twenty sixth ean the program is set to take to get is james gomes is the regional director for southeast asia pacific adamus international he says no one should be forced to return. we are not clear about the fundamental conditions to which the refugees returning to because they have fled que no property risk to life destruction at the hands of the time a door in the right kind state and. sending them back to the same conditions so this is why the issue of voluntariness. important to ascertain although the document you know framing the returns agreement and the physical agreement do make reference to the voluntary returns but we need effective oversight to determine if
7:25 am
indeed these returns are all in terry here i think the role of the un has important although the documentation you know that we have cited provides for the un h.r. to cite lists of attorney by then it's not good enough you know u.n.h.c.r. needs to be central to oversight the process to ensure that it is indeed voluntary and it should have the mandate to you know. ensure that you know that it's able to prevent or stop those returns that are not voluntary and this its role should not only be on the bangladesh side it also needs to play a part to determine the conditions on the me and my side so therefore you know in this situation i think the returns that are you know. that are planned for the twenty third of january are just simply too premature and to stage. francis has

a sour note when the pope just before leaving chile sided with the bishop. that. the pope said that there was no prove that he allegedly protected a paedophile priest on look at either. and of course that caused an uproar in chile there was the reaction has been very different the pope here has been cheered and greeted and wellcome throughout the country from the amazon to the northern city of to heal and the city of lima and the pope talked about many different things throughout the trip but what he didn't talk about here was the abuse cases that happened. but the majority of people said they did not expect the pope to talk about the sex scandals and rather to talk about peace which is what many peruvians
