shelters run by private companies like this one behind me but they are overseen by the health and human services department which is the u.s. government listen i mean they've let some people inside some congressmen have toured inside these facilities of children and they do this and they they've released some video that it was shot by the government because what the government's trying to say is listen these are not detention facilities they say that they are just shelters where the kids have beds they have hot meals warm showers and in some cases play rooms and video games and sometimes even getting books and getting a teacher to teach them to study ok that's what the government saying so they're saying and there's some commentators here in the u.s. on cable news that actually made comments so it's almost like a summer camp well i guess it's all how you see it but the bottom line is these are kids no matter what help they're getting inside these shelters these children they are still away from their parents don't know what has happened to their parents in
8:01 am
most cases haven't spoken to their parents and they can't leave their essentially in shelters but shelters that are really detention centers so the government likes to put out this video only that they shot showing the best of the situation but it's very telling that they will not allow journalists to go inside and speak to the children ourselves and gather our own images to get a better sense of what it really is like in there only government is filming in there right now and that's really telling i think we'll leave it there for though of course that continue to follow the situation with you gabriel in texas as the days for this thank you. will we be also talking to dr colleen kraft she's the president of the american academy of pediatrics she warns that children full so be separated from their parents as a young age can develop serious medical problems in later low life. when what we call toxic stress which is this unbuffered rise in your stress hormones what we
8:02 am
know is that the younger you are when you develop this or you have this inflicted upon you the more likely you are dead develop long term brain damage and many of these kids will remember this many of the will remember it not be able to tell us about what happened or what they were thinking during that time and that makes it much more difficult when they are back with their parents and we are looking at trauma and forms type of therapies for them because some of these kids are going to need to really pull out and some of these kids are really going to help to calm down because of externalised behavior. much of the media coverage of this issue has centered around one photo of a home during child crying at the border now olu she was not actually separated from her mother her image has hit home with people around the world the photo was taken by a pulitzer prize winning photographer for getty images he tells us the story behind the picture. i've been photographing along the border and immigration issues now

8:09 am
the plan is for the united nations to take over the management of the port for its workers to walk alongside yemeni port workers inspect any goods coming in through the port and then channel any revenue from the port to the central bank of yemen it's unclear whether this would lead to an immediate cease fire so that it be on the united arab emirates will forces are fighting the truth it want look they want the immediate and unconditional withdrawal of all the fighters from where they then but they may be a priority for the united nations of the united states. so there will be and the u.a.e. to accept the deal is for there to be more disruption to the vital services for the port it's a lifeline for millions of yemen is would depend on eight. residents of the southern syrian province of half leaning towards the border with jordan as government forces step up their offensive thousands of people are trying to move to safety syrian forces target rebel held areas and force planes dropped leaflets

8:11 am
continue to do this they say until there is something tangible to show for it so far that remains elusive things remain very tense here especially this week after what we saw just a few days ago with around of some forty five rockets and mortars fired out of gaza territory into israel and the response from the israeli air force with some twenty five targets struck there is a sense of tension here as these protests continue now well into the third month up the military and situation in gaza was a key discussion point for top u.s. advisers who met with israel's prime minister on friday benyamin netanyahu spoke with trump son in law and senior adviser jared cushion as well as u.s. middle east special envoy jason green blatt at the u.s. embassy in jerusalem in addition to gaza they discussed the u.s. as proposed middle east peace plan and green blood did not meet palestinian leaders who cut off communication with the u.s.

8:13 am
isn't an honest broker anymore that it's on the side of the israelis because it recognizes jerusalem as the capital of israel so the palestinians on involved in any way shape or form with this peace plan so what does that mean well it means the likelihood of the peace plan going through is quite slim considering the palestinians aren't involved but let's see what happens when they try and present the u.s. try to present the peace plan to the world what sort of reaction they'll get and this is really what we're hearing is this being discussed when is the right time to reveal this so-called deal of the century this proposed peace plan for israel and palestine shares in european comedy because of taking a hit on the us president threatened to impose a twenty percent tariff on e.u. car imports doldrums threats was in response to retaliatory tariff spawn of the e.u. on american products the move came after the u.s. imposed steel an alum in the entire so against the e.u. canada and mexico in june the fall council. tit for tat tariffs

8:15 am
goes against it in fact it goes against the logic of. the e.u. says it's also identified another four billion dollars in u.s. products for further tariffs if the world trade organization court where it's lodged a complaint against the u.s. rules in the e.u. favor the european union is carefully steering clear of the expression trade war largely over fears about where these tit for tat measures could end up instead the e.u. is referring to it as a rebalancing measure still this is about making as much noise as possible about sending a symbolic message to the white house by targeting some of america's most iconic brands. donald trump said he's now considering introducing twenty percent tariffs on european cars but analysts say any further measures against the e.u. could harm the u.s. produces in the long run. it's not something smart enough not to go too far he
