leader has wrapped up his two day trip to china kim jong un was in china to brief president paying on his historic meeting with the u.s. president earlier this month this is came as the third visit the china since march edger and brown has more now from beijing. well this is an unusual visit when kim jong un came here in march and again in may details of the visit were only released after he left china this time the details were released on the morning that he arrived he received a full welcoming ceremony at the great hall of the people with full military honors slowly the north korean leader is being eased into the international fold no longer treated as the leader of a pariah state but as a bona fide leader of his country now i think that kim jong un and president xi jinping would have discussed perhaps what has so far not been made public about kim jong un's discussions in singapore with president donald trump this of course is
6:35 am
where the two leaders committed themselves to the denuclearization of the korean peninsula of course north korea and the united states have very different definitions of what denuclearization is and indeed what timescale it should take place in nevertheless kim jong un has really been at the center of world diplomacy now for the past three months he's met not just the leader of china but also the president of the united states the president of south korea and of course the prime minister of singapore and he's due to meet president vladimir putin of russia in september and i think that kim jong un and president xi jinping would also have been discussing sheeting pings immanent visit to the north korean capital there was also something else that came out of this meeting both kim and she jingping committed themselves to maintaining strong bilateral relations whatever happens

internationally and reading between the lines i think that means that even if you know the deal between kim jong un and president donald trump doesn't work out china is essentially saying we will still be your friend. canada has become only the second country to legalize the use of. re creational model hannah the prime minister announced a move after the country's cannabis act cleared its final potential hurdle that was a vote in the senate the new legislation will allow marijuana possession growing and sales for adults. that sport is up next on the news hour another game another gold for portugal star man. and the british government agrees to return rare bronze statues of stolen from nigeria more than a century. business updates brought to you by qatar airways going places together.

6:49 am
former detainees from u.a.e. run prisons in yemen speak out about alleged systematic sexual torture by guards a grim milestone on world refugee day the u.n. says a record sixty eight point five million people have been forced from their homes and the british government agrees to return rare bronze statues the stolen from nigeria more than a century ago. donald trump has signed an executive order to keep parents send their children together when they enter the country illegally but the u.s. president said his administration's zero tolerance policy on immigration will stay in place trump has been under mounting pressure to act after it emerged more than two thousand children had been separated from their parents and were being kept in so-called tender age shelters if they were still told those babies are white house
6:50 am
correspondent kimberly how kidnapped reports. could have a lot of happy people faced with escalating outrage president trump has reversed his policy of separating families who enter the united states illegally we're going to have strong very strong borders but we're going to keep the families together i didn't like the site but the feeling of families being separated that means those who enter the u.s. illegally will still be prosecuted could. you ation of trump's zero tolerance border policy but while they await a hearing before an immigration judge parents will no longer be separated from their children. than pressure on the administration had been mounting centered around trump and his homeland security secretary kirsten nielsen demonstrators interrupted her dinner at a washington restaurant on tuesday night in protest of the child separations if you're really really really weak the country is going to be overruled with millions
6:51 am
of people trumps executive order is only a temporary solution to the broader problem of immigration reform that stymied lawmakers for decades meeting at the white house republicans argued for measures to stop migrants entering the united states then disappearing without a hearing before an immigration judge but as president you're going to rule by if you. take. all requires the children to be separated if you let the adults in the country they never show. seems to me that we want to keep the family together and have the perisher over there. but democrats dispute claim that he was simply enforcing the law when it comes to separating children from their parents democrats argue it was a choice b. uses what amounts to government sponsored child abuse as political leverage a bargaining chip in his effort to force through an extremist immigration agenda we can enforce our immigration laws without breaking families apart the administration
6:52 am
says it wants congress to act and we are feeling the pressure congress is poised to act on thursday the u.s. house of representatives will vote on legislation to stop family separations but the broader issue of immigration reform is yet to be resolved kimberly health at al-jazeera the white house well toned javits says the vice president of immigration policy at the center for american progress he says the executive order doesn't actually reunite families. yeah i want to be crystal clear the administration today didn't do anything that will end family separation the executive order that the administration announced today is going to set up family incarceration camps on department of defense facilities around the country but the executive order itself acknowledges that that is not a long term solution and kids will not be allowed to remain in those facilities for the duration of their proceedings the court that the executive order specifically
6:53 am
says are going to go back to a court to request that a court allow them to do what they fully acknowledge and recognize this point is not lawful so all this does really is delay a future family separations for a few weeks but we're going to bring me back where we are again right now in probably just a few weeks old saying the executive order says nothing about the nearly twenty five hundred kids who've been taken we know that some of those parents already have been deported to their countries and have no idea where their kids are or when or whether they'll ever see them again we know that the government is not communicating effectively internally and not even you know everyone in the government knows where these kids are and who they need to be reunited with and that makes sense of course right because some of those kids are pre-verbal they're two years old eighteen months old they can't tell the parents the foster family that their women who their parents are so they've really created a humanitarian crisis here and the idea that we're going to be incarcerating tens of thousands of families together indefinitely which is their vision is no more

6:56 am
themselves and what they describe is a kafka esque experience conditions inside these detention centers are often more on any given day here in the u.s. there are more than forty thousand migrants being held in government detention facilities in a new report the watchdog group human rights watch says poor medical care and the glick have led to a number of deaths among those people in detention and sixteen of the eighteen cases that were analyzing this report that led to death sixteen of them were. thing that really they could have been prevented kevin seems resigned to the fact that his father will almost certainly be deported the father is like the base of everything you take out the base everything comes crashing down without him which is i thought last one of a chain of broken families across the country as the crackdown on migrants intensifies robert oulds al-jazeera los angeles.
