and the u.s. president donald trump has attacked germany's migrant policy despite criticism over his own zero tolerance approach anger is growing over a policy that separated almost two thousand children from their parents after they entered the united states illegally from mexico trump says he will not allow america to become a migrant camp says u.s. immigration problems are the fault of what he called obstructionist democrats a white house correspondent kimberly hellcat reports. growing outrage in the united states over this children appearing to be detained along the southern border of the united states separated from their parents who wake court appearances accused of entering the united states illegally it's a practice the trumpet ministration is defending this in ministration has a simple message if you cross the border illegally we will prosecute you if you
make a false immigration claim we will prosecute you if you smuggle illegal aliens across an extraordinarily dangerous journey we will prosecute you the policy of separating children has been. in place for more than a decade but until recently was always considered an action of last resort for smith has surged under president donald trump who's not backing down from his hardline policy the united states will not be a migrant camp. and it will not be a refugee holding facility won't be you look at what's happening in europe you look at what's happening in other places we can't allow that to happen to the united states not on my watch zero humanity and it makes zero sense the president's comments have provoked growing outrage among democrats and even members of his own republican party trumps admitted separating children from their parents is horrible but is trying to once again pressure congress into passing immigration reform laws
it's been promising on monday he tweeted change the laws and later he blamed his democratic opponents for not reforming immigration legislation even though republicans currently control congress and he even pointed the finger at germany accusing it of failed immigration policy contributing to what he says is a high crime rate an example of what the united states does not want to become and until there are new laws in place or trans infamous border wall is funded the attorney general says the zero tolerance policy will continue we cannot and will not encourage people to bring their children or the children to the country unlawfully by giving them immunity. in the process trouble is expected to travel to capitol hill to speak with republican lawmakers on tuesday but a series of immigration proposals but none is expected to pass setting up emotional
debate that is unlikely to be resolved until voters go to the polls for congressional elections in november kimberley health at al-jazeera washington. despite what trump said in his tweet crime has actually fallen in germany but i'm going back oh is currently in the midst of a political crisis at home over home aggression policy she temporarily averted the collapse of her government by promising to negotiate a deal later this month to reduce immigration numbers right wing christian social union one of three parties in merkel's go governing coalition has given her two weeks to find a solution john mccain reports and then in the german police squad mounts checks close to the bavarian border with austria trying to establish the identities of the people making the journey to germany for months interior minister horst zeal for there's been calling for more of this sort of thing across the country monday the chancellor angela merkel seemed to move in his direction conceding that in some
instances a wider group of people can now be denied entry. citizen that's why i did us because if you mean that we are of the opinion the c.d.u. and c.s.u. has the choice all to better direct migration into our country and we do some number of people are driving in the country so that we do not have a situation like we had two thousand if he didn't know what these concession is not is an immediate repudiation of merkel's twenty fifteen policy that germany accepts asylum seekers who've already tried to claim asylum in another e.u. country in accepting this compromise zero offer suggested it wasn't a complete solution. we do not yet have the whole issue of migration under control there have been some improvements but i cannot say that the issue is under control to the extent that i can tell the german people we have a system in place to control migration and guarantee legal certainty in line with the constitution we still have a lot of work to do here. this rare has placed historical allies in an unfamiliar
position seemingly in a war of words and with some suggesting the fate of the coalition is at stake it is a serious crisis will happen it's just postponed for the next two weeks america now got her a compromise that she can work hard for the next two weeks to call and meet with leaders of other european countries to find a compromise on crisis would europe are suffering from for the last three years merkel has stressed the need for bilateral agreements with other countries making her meeting with italian prime minister. on monday the perfect opportunity to lobby for change when israeli leaders meet in brussels at the end of next week they'll be trying to find a deal that all member states can accept the question for angle america will be is it a deal varian allies can accept dominic kane al-jazeera berlin. more than one

israel's army in recent years the reason the existence of this video showing soldier. shoot our shareef in the head as he lay on the ground which military court said happened more than ten minutes after the palestinian was first shot and disarmed while attempting a knife attack as our it was released last month after spending nine months in jail a new bill awaiting consideration by israel's parliament the knesset proposes a maximum ten years sentence for anyone recording similar videos the defense minister avigdor lieberman tweeted his support saying i.d.f. soldiers are subjected to attacks from those who act against the israeli people and tara supporters who try to humiliate the shame and harm them we will put an end to this. the proposed law comes in response to a series of videos recently seen as harmful to the israeli military's image the bills wording though has been questioned it refers to the intent of the person recording a soldier's behavior being to injure their spirit or harm national security
israel's attorney general has called the bill in its current form illegal if and when the bill does become lords understood it would be in a very different form the maximum sentence reduced from ten to three years the offense changed from filming or distributing images of soldiers to impeding them from carrying out their duty the head of the human rights group that circulated the hebron video says that doesn't mean the bill is being watered down rather that it's being incorporated into existing law now that can actually shift the norm and create this gray area in which it would be under the capacity of you know random soldiers or commanders to just claim that almost any photography struction of soldiers ability to carry out their duties. at selham says the eventual or could be used against media organizations as well as activists and send a message to soldiers that they can treat those recording them more. it wouldn't however apply in the case of this video of an israeli sniper shooting unarmed man

a former high commissioner for the peace deal here who said it's going to be very hard for iran do k. to do anything with those peace accords because they are in the supreme court they are in the constitution it will be very hard for him to change them a tall so despite the promises he has made with the court is about possibly modifying those are the words he used the peace accord it may end up that he can't do much at all and really as he said ministrations starts this is a very untested politician and he has the things out the question does he want to spend all this time trying to deal with the peace accords or trying to make his mark as colombia's new president so at the moment if you ask experts here if you ask people in the street no one really knows the answer as to what do cable do with that fragile peace accord. but he's in munich of arrests of the chief executive of car manufacturer audi in relation to germany's emissions cheating scandal prosecutors say robert sadler has been detained on suspicion of fraud and his
