3:02 am
resolutions in march against a single country israel it is essential that this council address it's chronic anti israel bias if it is to have any credibility it is correct to criticize the state of israel for its actions as said by rabbi law you can you can challenge the israeli government's policies we thought being a mighty comet such as this a permanent agenda item investigating israel's treatment of palestinians and the us is recent failure to prevent the un general assembly from condemning israel's use of force in gaza finally made the trumpet ministration say enough on tuesday but when organizations undermine our national interests and our allies we will not be complicit when they seek to infringe on our national sovereignty we will not be silent we take this step because our commitment does not allow us to remain a part of a hypocritical and self-serving organization that makes
3:03 am
a mockery of human rights we could have withdrawn immediately we did not do that instead we made a good faith effort to resolve the problems the us has had a troubled relationship with the council when it was set up in two thousand and six president george bush refused to join because he feared countries with poor human rights records would be able to sit on a panel intended to punish human rights violators key in bush's decision making the us ambassador to the u.n. at the time john bolton he's now president trumps national security advisor to president barack obama then joined the council in two thousand and nine argued the u.s. would have more influence and give israel more protection from negative resolutions in the process now the u.s. is leaving the council again and that has human rights groups around the world very concerned they fear that without the press american. since on the council it will
3:04 am
be much less able to hold countries such as russia syria or north korea accountable for the mistreatment of their citizens it's also not clear how long washington plans to stay away from the human rights council rosalyn jordan al-jazeera the state department and u.s. president trump has been meeting republicans on capitol hill to discuss passing legislation to of the whole the immigration system trump says he's willing to back up one of two bills one proposes a crackdown on the side of sikhism funding for the border wall a more moderate second bill provides a path to citizenship for young people known as dreamers who came to the u.s. illegally as children trump has been on the fierce criticism for its policy of separating migrant families at the mexico border which he continues to defend. when you prosecute the parents for coming in illegally which should happen you have to take the children away now we don't have to prosecute them but then when not
3:05 am
prosecuting them for coming in illegally that's not good we want to end the border crisis by finally giving us the legal authorities and the resources to detain and remove illegal immigrant families altogether and bring them back to their country. lived out of washington i was there as alan fisher is on capitol hill allan the president came to the capitol. and left what happened. but he spent an hour with fellow republicans he was talking about immigration but don't trumping donald trump also wandered off script and started talking about his tax cuts from at the end of last year and also went on to see surprise surprise that the russian investigation is a witch hunt at the end of the meeting he was only in there for an hour some republican said it was a good meeting donald trump says he's going to saying anything that comes out of
3:06 am
the house and the senate needs to go through both chambers of course but there's a difficulty there here's the difficulty that there's a couple of bills that are floating around here but there's no consensus on the best way forward that would manage to get through the house and the senate and because of that those in the senate republicans in the senate are what he wanted very narrow legislative fix to see that children would be separated from the parents on the southern border but the democrats aren't keen to help on that because they think it doesn't need a legislative fix this is something that donald trump has introduced through his justice department and he could fix by calling picking up the phone calling the justice department saying stop that and stop it now so they're not very keen to get involved in a legislative fix here is another problem as well donald trump said last week that if there's a good immigration bill that comes out of the house in the senate if addresses things that the border wall and legal immigration i know also deals with the issue of separating children from their families he will sign it but he said that last
3:07 am
week and then he changed his mind on friday and said no no i want to look at the bill will make any changes and then send it back this was everything down there very keen to get this done this week but this is american twenty teen and so because of the divisions the political divisions and the lack of goodwill on both sides there's no real sign the be able to come up with a. i'm sort of plan that will get through the house in the senate and get it all done by friday you say they came to get it done this week the chorus of controversy the chorus of condemnation rather growing over roe donald trump's zero tolerance immigration policy how much damage could this do to the republican party's in november's midterm. well a number of republican senators are very aware of that because they've actually sent a letter in the last few hours to the justice department in same please stop the separation of children from their parents until we can come up with some sort of legislative fix to do that donald trump would have to give the ok and we know that
3:08 am
donald trump as it greta reversing positions he tends to double don't push forward with it so that sunlight with the up and the other weight of the optics and they really want to get this fixed because they don't want this dragging on through the summer because that looks really bad and then as you get closer to the midterms in november people will remember all of this and the me will change their vote because of it so that is why the republicans are very keen to get this sorted as you see voices of condemnation continue to build there are many many people know who are saying look what is happening on the southern border is cruel it is unacceptable and it is un-american and it needs to be fixed and needs to be fixed no and on many things i was there is an official there live on capitol hill as i was saying trump has repeatedly and falsely blame democrats for his family separation policy he says it can only be fixed with a law change but there is no law requiring families to be split up as kimberly how could reports. as the crisis on the u.s.
3:09 am
border with mexico ask allayed donald trump is defined lamie his political opponents for a problem he says can only be fixed through legislation as a result of democrat supported loopholes in our federal laws most illegal immigrant families and minors from central america. who arrived on a lawfully at the border cannot be detained together or removed together only released these are crippling loopholes that cause family separation which we don't want speaking at a meeting of independent business owners trump also blamed mexico for encouraging illegal crossings into the united states they come up through mexico mexico does nothing for us you hear it here they do nothing for us they could stop it democrats say the president has the power to stop separating children from parents being
3:10 am
prosecuted for entering the u.s. illegally they accuse him of putting children into internment camps there is nothing moral or even acceptable of hearing children crying and screaming for their daddies and their mommies in the land that calls itself the land of the free and the home of the brain trump is meeting with republican lawmakers lobbying for broad immigration changes to end separations and provide billions to erect his promised border wall the bills are unlikely to pass instead senators are considering narrower legislation to keep families together or parents immigration status is determined congress can step in and pass this this week i'm a urging congress we can fix this problem we can fix this and i've been speaking with both republicans and democrats we can come together we are all be united and say of course kids should be with their parents the images of weeping children and

3:19 am
determination that we believe very strongly in the european response to the migration challenge we have not just discovered this challenge we did not discover it last week but we have very clearly determined together to act and the european coordinated why such friendly sentiments from the french president are exactly what angle america would have been wanting to hear from this meeting because in the past few days she's had to concede on immigration policy to her to mystic c.s.u. allies promising a european solution the price for not seeing her coalition toppled in this document which purports to be a draft of what e.u. leaders will deliberate over in brussels next week much of the policies the c.s.u. have been speaking about are discussed so what are the prospects for an e.u. wide solution this is the school is the team over the topic which currently concerns us or is the topic of migration we understand to as a common challenge we first have to make sure that the cause for migration is
