11:18 am
the increase in the discreet but heavy showers not so much of the philippines but for the south and through malays even touching bits of indonesia now you see is a good scattering and sunshine between but that's where the port is like to be from sort of icy back towards southern sumatra but also including singapore and kuala lumpur the next day or so would be a big surprise to see witness there because the stock quotes nothing throwing itself into the monsoon trough it's not making headway we still got a few big showers in the heaviest rain still down the western ghats with only occasional because showers in north and by gosh the northeast and india so for many places just chill suffering the pretty monsoon heat forty two in new delhi is a bit higher than it ought to be. the weather sponsored by qatar airways. i mean this was different not just whether someone's going for someone's favorite

11:20 am
welcome back to the al-jazeera news hour i'm so robin a reminder of our top stories some of the migrant children separated from their parents the u.s. mexican border in recent weeks have been reunited with their families but there's growing concern over whether u.s. authorities have the proper raechel to reunite the remaining one thousand eight hundred children with their parents also united nations report says the rule of law in venezuela is now virtually absent with the government linked to more than five hundred killings in two years the report says extra judicial killings are being carried out with impunity. also hundreds of civilians in yemen are continuing to flee the port city of data. u.s. officials have urged the saudi abroad to coalition to halt its bombing campaign
11:21 am
against the city they're calling on the coalition to allow the u.n. to manage the port instead. model top story where the u.s. president's been defending his immigration policy he had this to say at a gathering in washington with victims of crime by illegal immigrants these are the stories that democrats and people that are weak on immigration they don't want to discuss they don't want to hear they don't want to see they don't want to talk about. no major networks and cameras to their homes would display the images of their incredible loved ones across the nightly news it don't do that they don't talk about the death and destruction caused by people that shouldn't be here a little is an immigration lawyer and a member of the executive committee of the american immigration lawyers association
11:22 am
he says the think is trouble refers to accurate people who are either first generation immigrants are first generation americans from members or immigrants themselves have a lower crime rates of those statistics just aren't true based on history and all of the studies that are out there from a conservative liberal group all the way to you know pretty progressive groups those numbers just don't bear out but more so what's important about sort of having these families there are they probably did get some news stories but wasn't what was wasn't part of the story was that these factors of the immigrants involved in the accident because it wasn't fair to the crime and there are cracks that every day people are shot and robbed every day there's nothing intrinsic to any of these crimes that is specific to someone who's from a foreign country so therefore why should that be part of the story is no different than if it was a man or a woman that create created the crime so i think that's a little bit over glossing what the issue is but in the story today that you're sort of covering and they were looking for a solution for the many undocumented individuals that are here the dhaka population those students in order for them to qualify for dhaka they have to have had no
11:23 am
criminal record at all so why are we not talking about that class of individuals that are here that deserve a remedy under due process of our laws. well civil rights groups in the us are celebrating after the supreme court ruled police must obtain a search warrant before they can access location data from a mobile phone the verdict warned of infringing the fourth amendment which guarantees a person's reasonable expectation of privacy but the ruling focused on historical call and text information and does not apply to a phones real time location several individual states including california massachusetts in utah already have similar laws to prevent abuse of the practice however the latest ruling will affect all states equally and could allow for members to improve phone user privacy the decision does allow for exceptions and times as to cases warrantless searches related to bomb threats active shootings and child abductions can still be undertaken let's bring in rachel levinson was in
11:24 am
washington d.c. she's a senior counsel at new york's university brennan center for liberty and national security it's very good to have you with us on the program how significant is the adjudication when it comes to how the law stands right now and how it will change in the future this is a really important decision you know what the court said is when you're talking about this kind of information so historical information about where somebody has been over a period of time that people actually do have a reasonable expectation of privacy and that the court recognize that and it means that any time police are looking for seven days or more of his stored this what's called historical cell site location information they have to get a warrant because people have sort of you know an expectation or a reasonable expectation that that information won't just be freely available it's seven days worth of the summation is that sort of the ideal time limit as far as you might say
11:25 am
a person's civil liberties is concerned. i mean if we're talking about ideal time what i would have loved to see the court say that really anything over twenty four hours would require a warrant you know a week's worth of information depending on how much is available you know people carry cell phones with them everywhere this is one of the things that the court recognize are almost like sort of an appendage of the body you carry it you know inside your own house to meet other people to appointments right so you can build up a lot of information about somebody so it would have been great i think of the court had drawn the line at twenty four hours or more even so trying it at seven days it's not a huge amount of time there are questions about whether the court was going to say maybe thirty days worth of information or sixty days worth of information so seven days is it a horrible sort of compromise as these things but the really really doesn't stop the police sort of getting to your phone does it i mean they can still get a warrant for it for its disclosure i mean what does this ruling tell us about the
11:26 am
way the courts want to protect civil rights make sure the individual complies with the legal investigation when requested to do so. sure i mean that's almost always the case right even information that's protected by the fourth amendment there is generally going to be some mechanism for the police to access it if they go through sort of the right procedure so what a warrant does that requires the police to go to a court and say we're looking for information we believe that we know where it can be found they have to identify where it can be found who it's related to and say that they have basically reasonable belief that it's evidence of a crime at that point a court can look at it and sign off and say yes we're granting the warrant but but even so it puts parameters around it so warrants define where police can search how much information they can take there are sometimes procedures to challenge even if it's after the fact so it's true that it's not kind of an absolute bar to allowing
11:27 am
police to access this information but that's almost never the case in our criminal justice system what we expect is that information that we have reason to believe will be kept private will be in less the government makes a certain showing and here a relatively high showing and then under those circumstances then the court with some oversight and the ability to do consent continued oversight will then give approval for for the police to access it to see how this plays out in the coming weeks the moment rachel levinson woman thanks so much for joining us from washington d.c. thank you. shows in european car makers have taken a hit to the u.s. president threaten to impose a twenty percent tariff on e.u. car imports donald trump's threats was in response to retaliate retire of spite of the e.u. or american products the began when the u.s. imposed steel and i mean the entire us there is the e.u. canada and mexico in june we've barca has more. tit for tat tariffs

11:29 am
goes against it in fact it goes against the logic at least. 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 us rules in the e.u. favor the european union is pitifully 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

point eight million barrels a day to address a predicted shortfall in supply iran and its allies were keen to keep the oil price up by sticking to the production limits agreed in twenty sixteen the main gathering was delayed by an hour as a last ditch diplomacy try to bridge the gap by the time the ministers sat down around the table a compromise was taking shape. as a one point one point on that one which was the proposal from russia coming into this week as well as doing a lot of numbers were eliminated yesterday so we're in the one million. nominal figure to be distributed. amongst the country poor countries the final communique when it came four hours later deliberately avoided specific quotas for the number of barrels and focused instead on saying that the extra output would simply restore full compliance with that original twenty sixteen production limit. the president
11:32 am
of the opec conference was asked again and again about allocation which countries would be allowed to increase their oil production to bring opec to one hundred percent compliance with a declaration of cooperation and again and again he refused to put specific figures on it and he also hinted candidly about the tensions that still remain within the group how is it there looking at it i think that is not that has not yet yet decided to do toward the fact that there are differences between the two in certain countries and we would not make sense if we are looking at the production to a country that cannot cannot produce it so we are voided i think having at locations from that prospect that the minister invited analysts and journalists to do the arithmetic for themselves till we know the specific is kind of a mystery increase it's an increase but we don't know how much and you know the minister today said you know you do the math but it's hard to do the math unless
