3:00 am
so who can make things up in people can make things change you know thank you football to embrace on al-jazeera world. 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. are not mothers and this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up at the u.s. isn't the only place where there's a political rift over immigration we're reports from germany where the issue is causing trouble for chancellor angela merkel. fears that fighting near yemen's port city of hadera will cut food supplies for people already on the
3:01 am
verge of starvation. and the u.s. secretary of state works to explain what actually happened in singapore to both america's allies and its adversaries. 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 border with mexico many families say they were told their children were being taken to be watched and interviewed but didn't know they would be separated last week the u.n. human rights office called on the administration to immediately end 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 a shower bath and then they take the baby. permit
3:02 am
a 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. but 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 is necessary while speaking to reporters at a briefing white house press secretary sarah saunders addressed comments made by
3:03 am
u.s. attorney general jeff sessions who quote 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 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 robin is joining us now from one of those rallies in los angeles what's the mood there like. outrage
3:04 am
rob the people that i've spoken to here in macarthur park in the center of los angeles are. attending one of dozens of rallies around the country say that they wept when they saw pictures of children being taken away from parents they're very angry and i spoke to a gentleman from guatemala who came to this country many years ago he said that these people are now faced the possibility of being sent home sent back to the countries they fled from because of excessive gang violence in fear of their lives that pall of the policy of the administration now is that gang violence or domestic abuse is not any good reason to ask for asylum so this gentleman told me that the essentially the u.s. is. applying a death sentence on people that it's sending back to places like wot amal el salvador and honduras rob sarah sound as we heard there was saying that this is just a continuation of a policy that existed under the bush administration and also the obama
3:05 am
administration are people there explaining what it is that's motivated them to come out at this specific time. well the law that you were speaking about in that sarah sanders was discussing in that exchange with reporters at the white house was not. implemented in the same way as the trumpet ministrations so-called zero tolerance policy in the past children were not taken away from their parents in the past. entering the country without documentation was subject to administrative proceedings now people who are brought in who come in either alone or with their kids are charged with either felonies or misdemeanors and put in the detention system and their cases go before a federal court so it's completely and in disingenuous to say that this is a continuation of past policies nothing like this has ever been done before robert
3:06 am
the people at the rally concentrating predominantly in protesting on the situation as it is or are you getting a sense that some people have an alternative solution. well i don't think that many people have you know come up with a with a fourteen point plan or anything like that rob but people here are saying that if if refugees or if the migrants are coming from places that are war torn that are gang ravaged where they have a particular a well founded fear that their lives are in danger than they should be allowed to seek asylum and should get a proper hearing that is the law not only of the united states but international law so people here would hear to that and just one other thing we heard from sarah sanders in that exchange talking about turning general jeff sessions quoting from the bible or i'm referring at least in the bible to a verse that says that essentially people should obey the authorities because the
3:07 am
authorities are put in place by by god. there have been strident protests from the number of conservative protestant ministers as well as the entire u.s. catholic bishops conference strongly condemning this new zero tolerance policy so the religious right and left have all weighed in on this and they're all. to say the least not in favor of tearing children out of their mother's arms program is live for us and los angeles thank you very much indeed. even saying for he does have republican strategist in new york he says the trumpet ministration is in forcing a bush era policy that was only ever used in extreme cases. 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 it is this was
3:08 am
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 i think that trumps base itself will stick by him it anything no matter what he does be it north korea or shooting somebody on fifth avenue with your family set but when it comes to independence and voters who could swing an election toward democrats in november or toward the democratic nominee and two thousand and twenty they are very turned off by this so the president callousness and cold hearted ness is not helping he said and making the excuse well it's the law and paul ryan saying well let's have
3:09 am
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 could actually be a political win for his entire immigration policy is a jumble of mess where as he's been focused on building a wall on the southern border when forty two percent of illegal immigrants in the united states enter the country illegally and just overstayed their visa he has an address that is steady separating children from their parents well there's fear of immigration is causing a major split in germany between angela merkel's christian democrats and their bavarian the sister party the christian social union the c.r.c. who wants to refuse entry to people who've already made asylum claims elsewhere in europe that's something chancellor merkel rejects going to cave 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
3:10 am
the issue has been one that has dogged the the formation of a grand coalition government and now the prevarication 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 engler machall open the borders to people with that famous phrase version does germany can do it i'm going to merkel disagrees very considerably she says no there that should be no return to that status immediately that it should be there should be some sort of compromise 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
3:11 am
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 that will actually 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 a ship with hundreds of refugees rescued off libya's coast over the weekend is expected to arrive in spain on sunday morning the aquarius has six hundred twenty nine refugees on board it headed to spain after italy and malta refused to let the ship dock at its ports however bad weather forced to take a detour aid workers on board say the long journey is proving a big challenge for the exhausted passengers. and a u.s. navy vessel involved with rescuing dozens of migrants of libya's coast is waiting to hear where they could be taken to the trying to and rescued forty survivors after their boat capsized on tuesday a private rescue boat offered to take the refugees but so far italy has not
3:12 am
assigned it a safe harbor italy's new government is demanding other countries take rescued migrants the satellite coalition fighting to oust who three rebels in yemen has captured a town south of the strategic port of hard data after intense fighting. it's the second day of the coalition's campaign to take hard data saudi arabia and the u.a.e. accuse the shia who the rebels of using the port to smuggle weapons from iran they launched several airstrikes against rebel positions in the city high data lies on yemen's red sea coast and it's the port through which seventy percent of the country's food supply enters eight point four million people are already on the verge of starvation international aid groups appealed to the saudi led coalition not to attack the city fearing it would exacerbate yemen's humanitarian crisis but the u.a.e. insists aid will be delivered as soon as the city is captured and this comes after
3:13 am
the united nations how the two hour closed door meeting at britain's request on the ongoing offensive the u.a.e. ambassador to the u.n. in geneva says that our ships on standby to supply her data once the military operation ends. we have this image plan did it in when we liberate the addon and then is more population belated then then the data. everything went very well and even our ships it just hit c. we think. so we have it we have larry we're ready will organize and we are ready to do. every assistance from. the united nations security council has called for the port to be kept open despite the fighting at a closed door session in new york it also reiterated that only
3:14 am
a political solution could end the conflict in yemen mike hanna has more this was a second closed door consultation held this week and ended in a similar fashion to the last one a brief statement saying that the council was united in its concern over the crisis calling on all parties to ensure that the port of the data in particular was kept open and stressing that the only solution to this crisis is a political one the council will meet once again for further discussions on monday where once again the special envoy martin gryphus will report back he is continuing with this efforts to broker a truce between the warring parties some members of the council apparently insistent on declaring a three in the ongoing military engagement but clearly not enough agreement within the council to go public with this particular demand at this point the u.s. secretary of state says sanctions against north korea will not be lifted until it
3:15 am
has completely denuclearized mike from paleness on a diplomatic tour briefing asian allies on the singapore summit between donald trump and kim jong un but pompei as comments appear to contradict north korea's view that the process would be phased in and reciprocal and as far as live 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 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 in the important issue and
3:16 am
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 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 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 fall denuclearization the complete denuclearization they are to ship. what china's position has always been that we
3:17 am
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 minister said 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 koreans want to access the international financial system but both countries acknowledge that what happened what took place in finger port is the first step towards denuclearization on the korean peninsula still ahead and al jazeera the un's bleakest warning yet about the risks climate change poses to the planet. and passionate scenes outside argentina's congress building after a revolt on legalizing abortion.

3:22 am
a wide ranging report by the inspector general seventeen months in the making it walks through the key moments in that investigation and the handling by the former f.b.i. director james comey into the use of a private e-mail server by hillary clinton the democratic presidential nominee when she was the secretary of state in the obama administration the report expected to be highly politicized even though this is a nonpartisan review it's likely to be just the opposite given the contentious nature of the election and the divided american electorate it does conclude that james komi as f.b.i. director deviated from protocols harm the reputation of institutions but that he was not politically biased or motivated in any way while conducting that investigation this is a point that is likely to be disputed by many of donald trump's supporters and even the president himself given he has repeatedly had led the investigation in the handling by james komi was rigged in clinton's favor despite the fact that donald

3:25 am
demanding that we do whatever it takes because we face an existential crisis we face an emergency donald trump is obviously a huge disappointment in terms of what the world is trying to do but there are many many americans that he doesn't speak for we've got the mayor of new york at the moment suing fossil fuel companies for the costs of putting a wall around wall street to keep the floodwaters a day we just got to find a coalition of the willing. but impassioned scenes outside argentina's congress building after politicians narrowly voted in favor of legalizing abortion the bill must now pass in the senate before it becomes law there is a book reports from one of. the national anthem to celebrate a historic vote emotion was high among those who wanted to legalize abortion in argentina. i can't stop crying because we are together this is

3:27 am
the real problems poor women face today. released the country is not ready for them but i think i wonder there are a lot of steps that should be taken prior to passing this law a lot of education needs to happen people have to know that if you do something there are consequences and one of those is getting pregnant a consequence. the opposition as well as allies of precedent were divided on the issue. has encouraged his party members to vote as they see feet even though he's personally oppose. the proposal. has been campaigning to change the law for years she says that the most difficult part is yet to come in the senate is quite quite difficult to sleep there and he said he's not received here in the campaign a little bit they put his time there in the senate down there is going to be most difficult the numbers tire i really really bad at the moment but when we are we're doing these like step by step a green revolution has taken over large sectors of argentina society they have
