program angela merkel was instrumental in mobilizing european financial assistance to help the country restructure its debts and stay within the euro zone but this is a trip is about more than the greek economy that's john seraphina's reports from athens. the timing of angular merkel's trip leaves little doubt that it is largely to support the name changing deal between greece and the former yugoslav macedonia greece's neighbor is finalizing constitutional changes this week to rename the country north macedonia macedonia is also a region of northern greece and pressure is on greek leaders to ratify the agreement and that's a. good i can only say that this step that greek prime minister separate took was a decisive step from which not only greece and north macedonia prophet but also europe as well as our common values prime minister alexis tsipras says he has the parliamentary votes he needs even though his junior right wing coalition partner independent greeks won't support the name change deal the very issue for me on the

a partial government shutdown that's lasted nearly three weeks committee hellcat has more from maccallum texas. this is one of the places u.s. president donald trump wants to build his border wall mccallan texas the busiest stretch for illegal crossings from mexico into the united states i want to thank everybody trying to make sure all the progs run display like drugs and weapons seized at the border as he met with officials macallan for a photo op designed to convince skeptical americans additional money for his border wall is necessary trying to argue that those organizing the illegal crossings are the real criminals victimising the migrants they have women tied up they have tape over their mouths electrical tape usually blue tape they call it. it's powerful stuff not good truck has been criticized for calling the latest influx of migrants into the u.s.
a crisis at the border on thursday truck tweeted the speech of president obama also calling the situation a crisis in twenty four teeth as waves of children arrived in the united states we now have an actual humanitarian crisis on the border that only underscores the need to drop the politics and fix our immigration system once and for all it's certainly not impossible to enter the united states illegally especially here in macallan texas while this fence is very very tall this one right beside it is not if you're physically fit if you can swim across a river through this thick brush scale a four metre concrete wall over the razor wire you're in it should be happening in our country that's what trump says he wants to stop but his push for five point seven billion from congress to reopen the government and direct a steel border wall has become a dueling narrative for or against the president. along the streets of macallan there were signs of protest but there was plenty of support for the
