the u.s. action state holds meetings across asia trying to clarify exactly what the u.s. and north korea agree to in singapore. have been rallies across the u.s. against the trump administration separation of migrant children from families seeking asylum in the united states thousands of children have been forcibly removed from their parents and placed into tention facilities along the border with mexico many families say they were told the children being taken to be washed and interviewed but did not know they would be separated think of the stress of these children they take a baby away from a nursing mother they tell someone you're going to going to give the baby a shower bath and then they take the baby. from a car seat and drive them away this is not. normal and fat it's barbaric it has to stop now what they're saying is well we'll find
6:02 am
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 piece up your no don't stick the stick in your ear what is it that they don't get about how stupid and wrong. speaking to reporters that a briefing white house press actually does address the comments made by u.s. attorney general jeff sessions who quoted the bible in defense of the board of policy she shifted the blame on the democrats for not coming up with better legislation to deal with undocumented migrants 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
6:03 am
a number of times throughout the bible however this is a hold on jim if you let me i guess i'm not going to comment on attorney specific comments that i haven't see why not 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 well meanwhile the republican party in the u.s. house of representatives has outlined its immigration bill to be considered next week it would prohibit the separation of undocumented children from their parents at u.s. borders it would also look to include a pathway to citizenship for the so-called dream of young immigrants brought to the u.s. illegally as children and media reports that would also authorize some twenty five billion dollars for the construction of

a border wall brunell's has more now from los angeles. they're a wonder people have gathered here in macarthur park in los angeles outraged by the drug administration's new zero tolerance policy which allows the government to separate families of migrants at the border there are now one hundred detention facilities around the country that the government is contracted with and eleven thousand migrant children are being held there people here say that many of the migrants who come from central america face harassment injury or even death if they are sent home this is one of several dozen such rallies that are being held around the country and it comes at a time when the religious authorities in this country both the conservative protestant organizations and churches of the catholic conference of bishops and others are denouncing the trump administration policy calling it in you may and say
6:05 am
that it needs to be stopped even things way to as republican strategist and new york he says the top administration is enforcing a bush 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 trump administration by enforcing this policy it's actually not a law as sara could be sanders claims it is this was a policy instituted 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 if anything no matter what he does be it north korea or
6:06 am
shooting somebody on fifth avenue with your family set 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 the law 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 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 hasn't addressed that instead he separating children from their parents. immigration is causing a major splits in germany between angela merkel's christian democrats and the
6:07 am
variances the poncy the question social union c.s.a. wants to refuse entry to people have already made asylum claims elsewhere in europe that something that tells a medical projects to mccain has more from bad then. 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 bavarian allies of angela merkel the christian social union is putting its foot down its leader it's the minister the 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 angle americal 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 the should be no return to that status
6:08 am
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 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 a ship where hundreds of refugees rescued off libya over the weekend is due to arrive in spain on sunday morning aquarius has six hundred twenty nine refugees on board it had to spain after a few years to let the ship docked at their ports have

6:10 am
a town south of the data as fierce fighting and as strikes pound the area the u.n. security council has had to closed door meetings this week both concluding that the only solution to the crisis is a political and not a military one the u.s. ambassador says there are ships on standby to supply her data once the military operation and even our ships just see waiting so we have a fright we have a very we're very well organized and we are ready to send every assistance for a good. the council will meet for further discussions on monday but many analysts agree that a basket of her data would not draw yemen's three year war closer to an end. supposing that there will be a successful sort of military takeover there are many questions remain what will happen to other parts of the country you know what will happen to who will run how
6:11 am
they do or what will happen to you know the deep divides among among yemenis i think that you know it's important to recognize that who sees as as a political actor as they were back in two thousand and thirteen fourteen. as the saudi led coalition forces a military victory over the strategic port the formerly exiled president abu drago months a hardy has arrived in the southern city of aden for the first time since february two thousand and seventeen to oversee the operations but the u.n. wants the attack on how data could kill up to a quarter of a million people and shut down the main route for food and humanitarian aid to the rest of the country this would have a devastating impact on survival of a population already teetering on the brink of famine. in mali algis there are fears telecoms giant eighty and he has completed its eighty five billion dollar

6:13 am
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 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 will be 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
6:14 am
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 of north korea not to ship. 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 minister's 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 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 singapore is the first step

6:19 am
story. it was a bombshell announcement during a heated presidential contest we did not sign 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 sixth teen 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 still used 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
6:20 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 we 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
6:21 am
