2:00 am
you and for you. this is al jazeera. hello i'm rob matheson and this is the news our live from doha coming up in the next sixty minutes and these laws are the same that have been on the books for over a decade and the president is simply enforcing them the white house defends the practice of separating undocumented immigrants from their children. and resoundingly win for the host country in the opening match of the world cup russia beat saudi arabia five nil details coming up.
2:01 am
fears that fighting near the yemeni port city of how data will cut food supplies for people already on the verge of starvation the u.s. frees up a fraction of the mamiya money it's promised to syrian human rights group the white helmets. rallies are taking place across the u.s. against the trumpet ministrations separation of migrant children from families seeking asylum in the united states thousands of children have been forcibly removed from their parents and placed in detention facilities along the us mexico border many families say they were told their children were being taken to be washed and interviewed but did not know they were going to be separated last week the u.n. human rights office called on the administration to immediately halt the policy. think of the stress of these children they take a baby away from a nursing mother they tell someone you're going to we're going to give the baby
2:02 am
a shower a bath and then they take the baby. permanent car seat and drive them away this is not normal and fact it's barbaric it has to stop now what they're saying is well we'll find a way not to separate them one of their ways not to separate the children is not to let them even seek asylum which is a right that people have in the world to seek asylum so that's not a solution the solution is not to tear children from their parents don't get peas up your nose don't stick a stick in your ear or what is it that they don't get about how stupid and wrong. this is because of a court ruling and so this i do think ought to be addressed we believe it should be addressed in an immigration legislation so what's happening at the border in the separation of parents in their children is because of a court ruling that's why i think what it's like is necessary while speaking to
2:03 am
reporters at a briefing on friday white house press secretary sara sondos addressed comments made by u.s. attorney general jeff sessions who quoted the bible in defense of the border policy i'm not aware of the attorney general's comments or what he would be referencing i can say that it is very biblical to enforce the law that is actually repeated a number of times throughout the bible however this time i hold on jim if you let me i guess i'm not going to comment on attorney specific comments that i haven't seen my god what i said and i know it's hard for you to understand even short sentences i guess but please don't take my words out of context but the separation of the legal family and families is the product of the same legal loopholes that democrats refused to close and these laws are the same that have been on the books for over a decade and the president is simply enforcing them i mean safer he's a republican strategist and he's joining us now from new york via skype thank you
2:04 am
very much indeed for your time so how much of a political risk do you think the tump administration is taking in continuing to enforce the law in this way. well it's a bit of a political risk because it shows the lack of morality and compassion of the trumpet ministration by enforcing this policy it's actually not a lot of the sanders claims that is this was a policy institute in the bush administration and continued in the obama administration however both of those administrations did not enforce it that often they would only do so in the case of extreme situations in this instance the trumpet ministrations since the spring has been forcing it at every opportunity that can now we're punishing the children of illegal immigrants for the sins of their parents and it's no fault of their own and immoral what is the rest to think that the trumpet ministration is going to start losing the support of some core
2:05 am
voters for example there are religious groups who have formed a basic part of of support for the trump administration who are coming out against this before precisely the reasons that you've just mentioned. well i think that trump's base itself will stick by him it anything no matter what he does be it north korea or shooting somebody on fifth avenue it's you famously said but when it comes to independents and voters who could swing an election toward democrats in november or toward the democratic nominee in two thousand and twenty they are very turned off by this so the president's callousness and cold hearted ness is not helping he said and making the excuse well it's a lot and paul ryan saying well let's have a legislative fix but it's not going to be fixed legislatively the president canopy wants not enforce this particular law and i don't think many people would be terribly upset it would actually be a political win for his entire immigration policy is a jumble of mess and where as he's been focused on building
2:06 am
a wall on the southern border when forty two percent of illegal immigrants in the united states entered the country illegally and just overstayed their visa he hasn't addressed that instead he separated children from their parents sarah sanders did has made the point as again you've pointed out that this is a continuation of a policy that has that from the obama era and the boob bush era prior to that the president has been sending or shied away from undoing some of the work that president obama and his administration is on why do you think he is so determined why do you think the trumpet administration not just the president is so determined to maintain this particular policy when it clearly is very unpopular. well you're basically accusing the trump administration of being competent in the first place they did run on an anti illegal immigration platform in two thousand and sixteen but as i said earlier it's a mess they are talking about building a border wall which will never be built due to eminent domain concerns and the fact they still have to acquire almost twelve hundred miles of public or private land
2:07 am
for public use and that would take decades in the federal court system the trumpet ministration is doing this to try and say look we're being tough on illegal immigration but at the same time jump in the president truck himself has said that illegal immigration is down on the southern border seventy some percent since he took office but just last few weeks ago the republican national committee sent out talking points saying that there's a border crisis going on in the southern border and then the following week they sent out something saying president trying to secure the southern border so the republican party and president trump they can't even walk straight into bubble gum at the same time really interesting to get your point of view on this as always evan said very thank you very much indeed thank you for having me rob the issue of immigration is causing a major split in germany between the angle of macos christian democrats and their bavarian sister party the christian the socialist union of the c.s.u.
2:08 am
wants to refuse entry to people who've already made asylum claims elsewhere in europe something chancellor merkel rejects doesn't it kate has more from berlin. the row over what to do with people who come to germany claiming refugee status who had already done so initially in the first e.u. country in which they made landfall has really blown up in the course of thursday the issue has been one that has dogged the the formation of a grand coalition government and now the various allies of angela merkel the christian social union is putting its foot down its leader it's the minister federal interior minister says the horse is in a hole for who is affectively the leader of the party on a national level federally anyway has said he wants to go back to the conditions that prevailed in twenty fifteen before anglo-american open the borders to people with that famous phrase version of and us germany can do it i'm going to merkel disagrees very considerably she says no there there should be no return to that status immediately that it should be there should be some sort of compromise
2:09 am
solution her partners the social democrats will they agree they do not want to see germany go back to those those scenes of the summer of twenty fifteen the point here is that the coalition that exists right now has a smallish majority if there were a real problem between the bavarian party and angela merkel's party that could spell real trouble but the point also to make is that it's as if the main parties have marched up to the edge of a precipice in the course of today looked over the side of the precipice and the actually let's stand back from that the next step here will be what the leadership of the c.s.u. decides and we'll know that in munich on monday according angry has sentenced for mon to twenty five years in prison for human trafficking the group an afghan and three bulgarians were found responsible for the deaths of seventy one refugees who suffocated in a truck in twenty fifteen paul brennan reports. the ringleaders were brought into

2:11 am
days the gang leader was an afghan national named sam salon who charged with aggravated murder the gang said they weren't aware that the refugees were dying the police telephone intercepts showed that when the driver had raised concerns law who had ordered him not to open the doors let them die instead that's an order he was recorded as saying. the deaths became a tipping point in the twenty fifteen refugee crisis it's believed to have led directly to angola medical's announcement the germany would welcome migrants eventually allowing in more than a million mainly syrian refugees. the prosecutor accused la who of endless greet and frightening indifference to the suffering of the seventy one who died the men's defense lawyers say they'll appeal the prosecutor is also appealing to try to have the twenty five year jail term increased. paul brennan al-jazeera. a ship with hundreds of refugees rescued off libya over the weekend is expected to arrive in

spain on sunday morning after italy and malta refused to let the ship with six hundred twenty nine refugees on board docked at its ports the aquarius headed towards spain however bad weather forced it to take a detour aid workers on board say the long journey is proving a big challenge for the exhausted passengers and the u.s. navy vessel involved with rescuing dozens of migrants off libya's coast is waiting to hear for they can be taken to the trenton rescued forty survivors after their four boat subside on tuesday a private rescue boat offered to take the refugees but so far italy has not assigned it a safe harbor italy's new government is demanding other countries take rescued migrants. plenty more ahead on the news hour including a triumphant homecoming for north korea's leader but there are still differing views on his summit with donald trump. the

children and their charitable foundation for allegedly violating state charity law a two point eight million dollar lawsuit alleges the trump foundation engaged in extensive and unlawful coordination with trump's twenty sixteen presidential campaign as well as self dealing for trump's personal benefit from dismissed the case over twitter calling it politically motivated. has more from new york. the new york attorney general accuses the trump foundation of persistent illegal conduct and relates to the donald trump foundation which was started in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven by donald trump and it's a charitable organization that's tax exempt because of that there are certain laws that it has to abide by and one of those key laws is that none of the money that goes to the charitable organization can be used by any personal means in any way shape or form however the new york attorney general said that is exactly what the donald trump foundation did and they said that they used money from the foundation
2:18 am
to among other things pay off trump legal bills also to decorate one of his golf course properties and also they say to use some money that went to his presidential campaign and they point to an event in two thousand and sixteen it was a trump event in iowa where it was billed as a fundraiser for military veterans they raised about six million dollars at that event the new york attorney general says only about three million of that went to the charitable cause the other three million was diverted away and used by the trump campaign and that according to the new york attorney general is highly illegal now why are trump's three oldest children also named in this and that's because all of them served on the trump foundation board of directors now the attorney general is asking that the trump foundation be dissolved the trump pay back about two point eight million dollars in restitution and that trump can no
2:19 am
longer open a charitable organization or foundation for at least another ten years important to point out that this is a civil lawsuit not criminal so the worst that could happen to trump and his children is that they would have to pay restitution there's nothing beyond that now donald trump himself tweeted out a response to this he calls the accusations completely ridiculous and he says that he will fight this case indicating that he will take this to court also insinuating his tweets that this is nothing more than politically motivated. a new report on the former f.b.i. director james comey accuses him of mishandling the investigation into hillary clinton's use of a private e-mail server the findings are already giving fuel to white house tends to prove the f.b.i. is corrupt and out to destroy us president donald trump committee hawk it has that story. it was a bombshell announcement during

a heated presidential contest we did not find clear evidence that secretary clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information former f.b.i. director james comey concluded in july twenty six team that u.s. presidential candidate hillary clinton did nothing wrong when she used a private e-mail server well secretary of state this is the biggest political scandal since watergate as a candidate us president donald trump to use those conclusions to bash his opponent arguing she was corrupt. and after he became president he took it a step further saying call me himself was corrupt trump says he fired his f.b.i. director chris handling of a separate investigation into allegations the president's campaign colluded with the russian government now a new report by the department of justice inspector general says the komi team made
2:21 am
errors while investigating clinton for weeks the president has suggested the findings will vindicate him and his decision to fire colby and prove the f.b.i. is out to get him in it the justice department argues some employees showed a clear bias against the campaign one employee peter struck even texting he'd like to stop trump the conduct by these employees cast a cloud over the entire investigation the i.g. report causes a great deal of concern and i think points out the political bias that the president's been talking about but the report also concludes. he did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that improper considerations including political bias directly affected the specific investigative decisions the current f.b.i. director argues the employees named in the report have been removed from any investigation involving the president and may face disciplinary action nothing in this report
2:22 am
impugns the integrity of our workforce as a whole or the f.b.i. as an institution calmly reacted to the report calling it reasonable even if he disagrees with some of its findings and as the russian investigation continues the president may now use this report as proof of why that probe should end kimberlee help get al-jazeera at the white house. russia have roared to a perfect start of football's world cup steamrolling a saudi arabia five nil in mosco president vladimir putin watched the match flanked by saudi crown prince mohammed bin son and feed president gianni infantino thanks very much of the host nation was a surprise russia and saudi are the two lowest ranked sides of the tournament fans

department of justice investigation has found access b. i directed james called me dramatically broken norms in his handling of the hillary clinton e-mail probe but that he was not biased highly anticipated report examines the actions taken by the top f.b.i. and justice department officials before the twenty sixteen presidential election the u.s. secretary of state says sanctions against north korea will not be lifted until it has completely denuclearized my pump aoe is on a diplomatic to a briefing asian allies in the singapore summit between donald trump and kim jong un pompei those comments appear to contradict north korea's view that the process would be phased and reciprocal and as far as the reports from beijing they could also differ from china. the last stop on u.s. secretary of state might prompt payors asian to following the summit in singapore it's here in beijing he met chinese president xi jinping where he told him how
2:29 am
important it was for him and u.s. president donald trump that from peo is here to spur snarly speak to him about what had been achieved in singapore as well as what the parties hope to achieve in the weeks and months ahead so this is visit to china underscoring china's role and how the u.s. sees china playing a role when it comes to denuclearization of the korean peninsula but my prayers visit to beijing is likely also to highlight and address an important issue and that is the issue of sanctions the chinese foreign ministry had said two days ago and this is just a couple of hours after the meeting between trump and kim took place that perhaps it was time to consider the sanctions we need for north korea because the sanctions are written in such a way that they may be adjusted depending on how north korea implements our polls the u.n. resolutions take a listen to how differently the two men on said the same question on sanctions and china's role in enforcing those sanctions china has reaffirmed its commitment to
2:30 am
honoring the u.n. security council resolutions. those have mechanisms for relief contained in them and we agreed that at the appropriate time that those would be considered. but we have made very clear that the sanctions and the economic relief that north korea will receive only happen after the denuclearization complete denuclearization of north korea were to be shipped. china's position has always been that we are firmly committed to denuclearize ation as to how it will proceed that will be worked out through more detailed consultations going forward and china stands ready to play its constructive role in that process. the chinese foreign ministers answer they're a lot more nuanced a lot less direct and china plays a key role in enforcing sanctions against north korea ninety percent of north korea's trade is with china and china also happens to be the main point where north
2:31 am
koreans want to access the international financial system but both countries acknowledge that what happened what took place in singapore is the first step towards denuclearization on the korean peninsula north korea's state media has released a forty two minute video of kim jong un's trip to singapore and it kim is shown sightseeing before meeting u.s. president don't trump they received a rapturous welcome this return to pyongyang a large crowd turning out to greet their leader. the un human rights chief has called for an international inquiry into the region of kashmir over alleged violations over the last two years kashmir is divided between india and pakistan but both countries claim it in full victoria gave me reports. in indian administrate kashmiris soldier is a combing the area for separatist fighters who they say shot and killed that colleague last week. it's the latest military operation in
2:32 am
a dispute that's lasted more than seventy years. during the last two years the un has investigated allegations of human rights abuses in kashmir and found fault on both sides. of the un human rights chief ziad rad how hussein says india has used excessive force in response to anti india protests and accuses pakistan of misusing its anti terror legislation to quash dissent now he's calling for an investigation into allegations mass graves have been found in the kashmir valley this report is the first ever issued by the un on the human rights situation in. pakistan administered kashmir details rights violations and abuses on both sides of the line of control and it highlights a situation of chronic impunity for violations committed by security forces.
2:33 am
pakistan says it welcomes the un's proposal for an international inquiry into human rights abuses passed a spokesman for the indian ministry of external affairs said in a statement india rejects the report it is fallacious tendentious and motivated would question the intent in bringing out such a report. the un human rights chief says he met with representatives of both governments when there was an increase in violence in july twenty sixth that was triggered by the death of a. rebel leader. neither government agreed to the un's request for unconditional access to kashmir so the un began remote monitoring of the region that ended a few months ago and the final report makes uncomfortable reading for both india and pakistan. victoria gating be out there. two people are being killed at a mosque in south africa there was stabbed by a suspect who was then shot dead by police has this report from the scene of the
2:34 am
attack. police have cordoned off some parts of the mosque with this yellow tape while they carry on their investigations they say that so far it's unclear why the attack happened but people who live in this area say they are shocked it's a small farming community and they still can't believe what happened people who were inside the mosque in the attack happened on thursday say that a man who is believed to be in his thirty's came to the mosque they felt that he was a foreigner not from the area because his accent was different he claimed he wanted someone to sleep for the night because they had nowhere else to go they said they couldn't turn him away to the little men they slip for a few hours and then they say that around three am local time on thursday he woke up and stabbed and killed two people when the police got to the scene the police said the man refused to drop his knife and they say the man started to attack them that's why they had to shoot and kill him it's a situation that has caused
2:35 am
a lot of concern the muslim community in durban about a month ago another mosque was attacked the police say that in that incident they think it was a case linked to extremism the muslim community the leaders than was the community asking people not to rush to speculate they say leave the police to do investigations and asking people to stay calm right now they're talking to various people in the community trying to find out what is going on trying to find out why the attack happened and also trying to find out how to secure the mosque for people who are coming to do prayers from now on to make sure that they are safe the drug administration has released over six and a half million dollars in aid for organizations in syria including the white helmets rescue group but as was stored in explains it's a fraction of what washington initially promised. on thursday the trumpet ministration announced that it would be dispersing six point six million dollars to
2:36 am
the syrian white helmets those are the volunteers who have been trying to provide emergency medical care to the people caught in the cross-fire of the little seven year old syrian civil war this money is going to be just burst legally to accounts that the white helmets can access so that they can buy emergency medical equipment and supplies however this is a far cry from the two hundred million dollars which the u.s. had pledged to provide to emergency relief groups earlier this year just before he was fired as secretary of state rex tillerson made the two hundred million dollar pledge at the funding conference for the syrian people however the trumpet ministration shortly thereafter said that as part of its strategy to not be as involved in syria as it has been in the past that it was going to freeze that two
2:37 am
hundred million dollars pledge the six point six million announced on thursday is less than three percent of that figure on thursday as it happens the u.n. special envoy for syria stefan dema stora indicated that he would soon be meeting with officials from a number of countries including the us in order to talk about the way to try to resolve the civil war through peace talks he did not however talk about the emergency funding going to the white helmets but one point that to mr a did make to reporters in geneva on thursday is that he's not optimistic that a peaceful solution can be found quickly but that he said that after four years of being in the job he feels a compulsion to try to make peace possible for the syrian people. until i see is the president of the syrian american medical society he's joining us via skype from fresno in california thank you very much indeed for being with us on al-jazeera this isn't anywhere near the amount of money that the white house that's and other
2:38 am
organizations had been hoping for how do you think this is going to affect their operations in syria i think the dan asked me to do by the use of mistreatment is one small step in the right direction it will help in the provision of needed emergency services and say syria and also the support. to get a mechanism a mechanism is also will be helping establishing accountability both of those mechanisms will help deter further attacks on civilians and he said that as has been announced this amount of resources is not stable enough and is not sufficient to provide services for people and without syria as we know that the furnace continues to escalate in the us and syria and southwest and more sources are needed to stabilize the civil society why do you think the u.s. has cut the money. as you know there's there's been very heavy debate about this
2:39 am
topic there's there's one opinion that saying that the u.s. administration is trying to gauge from syria completely there's the other opinion that the u.s. administration sent gates from northwestern syria. sources to the northeast. a few from. river and there's just a few other not that came around us trying to get fairly soon gauging support to the stabilization efforts for syria. i think there's truth to all of those three factors here. and there's significant debate right now and suicide using incision officials in the congress about what would be the most appropriate next etting disengagement speed dangerous it will collapse a civil society and set syria we know that congress is resupport of the civil society. operation in the north north and southern syria as we all believe in the
2:40 am
sunni to values so we'll see what you know you reveal at the end of this debate the white helmets in the past have been accused mainly by the asaad government and its supporters of being spies and activists rather than aid workers in fact russia accused the white helmets of staging some of the scenes of chemical attacks how do you think the assad government and russia are going to react to the fact that they're being given less money. i think of it don't be thrilled about this as you know going back to the chemical attacks for example the c.w. . released a report three days ago confirming the utilization of searing nerve gas and chlorine in it live in the time last year this attack for example was reported by our colleagues at what comments and sams and many of our other students at your
2:41 am
companies dish something for which you are pursuing a great not syria is target teams off core constituents or talking with us a consistent five member states point syria russia that's dangerous that we haven't seen the state of texas want me to structures that way and that adds to the risk that already exist in the war torn syria where dissimilar societies the most vulnerable structure there we are and where they will be and those told the people it was didn't say syria which used to be when people were getting on the bus and even to you know their shoes to be they are the people who are not involved in the negotiation as you know the negotiations the between warring sides and this will set is not protected not supported yet they believe in serving the people and they will continue to do that but then you know that it was formidable and supporting them and message that will be even continuing so dr ahmed tarts a president of the syrian american medical society we appreciate your time thank
