1:08 am
a very strong and independent. press scene and today is a devastating blow to that small community as president donald trump has again reaffirmed his belief in a border war with mexico one of the key policies of his election campaign it comes as a group of hundreds of refugees and migrants from central america stuck just across the southwest in order a so-called migrant caravan has been making its way north across mexico for more than a month trump assaulted border security just stop him from entering the u.s. but says more permanent measures are needed. but we have to have changes in congress and we have to have it quickly we need a wall number one and you see that right now you know where they are even though it's not a particularly good will it even though a small percentage can climb to the top they have to be the extremely good shape but a small percentage can climb that particular wall we have a wall that's much more difficult but if you didn't have that you'd have thousands of people just pouring into our country you've got to have
1:09 am
a wall. annular apollo's on the mexican side of the border in taiwan a so we know this is a group of about one hundred fifty to two hundred immigrants making a very difficult journey from central america across mexico now to the u.s. border they finally reached tell us what's happened to them now. margaret activists told us that around fifty individuals were allowed by mexican officials to cross over to the u.s. border inspection facility yesterday but were unable to be processed by border officials another one hundred fifty of those those are the ones that you see behind me have been saying here for what is now the second day in a row they were expecting to be granted the opportunity to turn themselves into border authorities well over twenty four hours ago but were they were unable to do so overnight a group of around fifty individuals reportedly stayed here camped out. a cold couple of days and you want to a lot of them braving the elements others went back to a nearby shelter again regrouping in the daylight hours and once again waiting here
1:10 am
trying to figure out whether or not today would be the day that they would have that opportunity to turn themselves into border authorities it's worth noting that today is children's day it's a sort of the reason why you're seeing a lot of a lot of kids behind me some of them are playing soccer some of them seem like they're in good spirits there have been lots of charity organizers and other volunteers that have brought them food they brought them clothes and toys a much needed distraction from an otherwise confusing and stressful scene that's played out as a lot of people here still don't know what's going on they don't know when they're going to have that opportunity to cross over and plead their case to border officials so for for most of them for all of them here today it's still a waiting game it is and we can see that the group of fifty migrants that remain they've camptown out but they are nonetheless stuck in this sort of no man's land between the two countries the entry point between mexico and the u.s. how long are they going to be able to stay there for will the mexican authorities
1:11 am
dismantle these makeshift camps at some point. that appears to be anybody's guess we have to keep in mind that these are individuals that have been travelling for a month now across mexico most of them are from central america most of them are are from honduras other ones others are from both a mile and inside of either one so for many of them they've been travelling for well over a month what they've said to us is that they've been through so much their journey has been so long what's another couple of days we really get the sense that they're willing to stay here as long as it takes it was raining earlier today which is why you're seeing several tarps that have been set up behind us they're sort of preempting more rain this afternoon and they're saying that even if it rains even if even if it gets cold it won't dissuade them from staying here as long as it takes to be given that opportunity to go to the u.s. border inspection facility to plead their case to authorities what we're hearing overwhelmingly from individuals is that they don't want to do anything illegal they're not trying to storm the born or there were individuals that climbed atop the border fence they did not cross over at that demonstration that took place
1:12 am
yesterday they don't want to do anything illegal they want to use the existing asylum laws in the united states to plead their case for asylum by u.s. border authorities and under an international law these individuals do have the the right to do so. well thank you very much money or apollo giving us the picture of the of the migrants are doing now on their they aren't their tail on the mexican side of the border. present comedy has become the first sub-saharan african leader to meet donald trump at the white house on the agenda was security trade and the economy but one infamous topic wasn't discussed as alan fischer explains a new sign of tension instead warm hunch it's for the first sub-saharan african leader to visit the trump white house the president of nigeria made no mention of my comments attributed to donald trump several months ago when he questioned letting nigerians visit america it's claimed that president donald trump made

1:14 am
certain barriers that don't allow that to happen so for the good of our farmers u.s. farmers and for the good of nigeria and all of africa it's very important that we are able to sell our great agricultural produce products. the nigerian president thank the u.s. for its military support i'm pleased to surgeons in the u.s. economy and asked for their help in recovering funds siphoned out of nigerian government accounts hard to governments if with the machinery in place forgot a script to go to new generals to collaborate in. return to nigeria over five hundred million now to save their lives over looted funds the two presidents walked out of the rose garden and back to the white house partly the warmth of the sun also warming relations between the two men alan fischer al jazeera at the white house still ahead for you on the program sending a message to the world that they are not defeated the palestinian national council meets for the first time in twenty two years and a u.n.
