in his controversial border wall during a meeting on border security donald trump told reporters that he wants congress to do its job and approve more than five billion dollars for the wall he called on democrats many of whom have left washington for the weekend to come back and vote the standoff over the funding for the wall has led to a partial government shutdown which will become the longest in u.s. history on saturday heidi jocasta reports from washington. reports indicate that some of jonell trump's closest advisers including his son in law jared questioner have been cautioning him against declaring a national emergency to get funding for the border wall it is seen as possibly setting a bad precedent and critics say a step toward authoritarianism if he were to issue that declaration also if he does it there's still no real understanding of where the money would come from trump wants five point seven billion dollars to construct the border wall between the
u.s. and mexico and right now reporting indicates that that money may come from money set aside for disaster relief in the future which may be an idea that the american public is not so wild about trump himself has indicated that if he were to move forward with the declaration he'll likely immediately face court challenges that he says he would likely lose in the lower and appellate levels but all of that said this president who has wavered so much on whether or not to call a national emergency to build the border wall mais yet change his mind his latest indication to reporters at the white house was that if congress does not come together to fund the border wall and he indeed will still pull the trigger and declare a national emergency republicans are still squarely in the president's corner because of his popularity with the republican voting base and democrats don't have reason to relent on not giving trump the border wall citing polls that show the
majority of americans oppose the border wall construction so where that leaves everyone is there's very little incentive to meet in the middle even as this government shutdown drags into its third week a weather update next year on al-jazeera then we'll take a look at how briggs it could affect the rights of brits who want to live and work in europe but europeans who want to live and work in britain will look at one of the main issues of the plagues of the page. south africa's ruling african national congress prepares for elections as its popularity appears to be on the wane. hello again a welcome back we're here cross united states we are watching a developing system here across the central plains that's going to bring some rain across the gulf states but it's going to bring quite

to leave one in the back seat referendum take back all the money the u.k. gives to the european union and spend it on the british health service instead it proved a very powerful message but how to square that with alice sandra's story by the time he'd left italy for london he had a master's degree and four years specialist experience in mental health this is starting salary in britain was around twenty five thousand dollars a year under the government's new proposals he would never have been allowed into the u.k. because that salary would be too low for him to get a work permit after brick says i know who is going to pay for the visa for working visa in the future for obviously a lot of people decide. to don't apply. meanwhile even in this period of the thirty nine on the net a few. days they will find out before for example in the u.k. rather than the ten thousand and. two year cycle as it stands there are one hundred
thousand unfilled roles in the british health service and dire warnings about on the looming crisis as you. the nationals leave the country the royal college of nursing is so worried it has joined the campaign for a second referendum calling for a rethink about leaving the school there's something quite challenging about thinking that highly skilled always means highly and what we need to do is really think about how in the public sector what is the value that people bring in the life and minute. it's often in terms of the skills that i have so i think we need to think differently what's happening in the health service reflects a bigger question is immigration really the problem sees there are two entirely conflicting narratives that play in the u.k. at the moment the government's arguing that there is far too much european migrant labor and is taking away jobs from british people but at the same time the government congratulates itself on having read called low unemployment it does
rather raise the question if the government does what it says it wants to and reduce european immigration by eighty percent and who exactly is going to do all the work there is an argument in cabinet between people who really care far more about restricting immigration than about you care call me led by the prime minister and the rest of the cabinet and of course the business community who want to make preserving the interest of a priority and that hasn't been resolved like having argued that the u.k. was at breaking points because of uncontrolled immigration politicians are now presented with a chance of reducing is enormously if that happens the country will find out where the migrants are such a problem to rule lawrence lee al-jazeera london south africa's ruling party the a.n.c. has launched its campaign for this year's general election this year as polls to be held in may being seen as an important test of the popularity of the scandal filled

has the second highest number of voters but it's also where the ruling a.n.c. which is riddled by disunity faces one of its biggest challenges president jacob zuma resigned last year after a long running corruption scandal and was replaced by civil rights. but zuma despite the allegations continues to enjoy significant support in his home of course in a town adding to concerns of a split within the party the a.n.c. leadership had a message of unity touring the party's one hundred seventh birthday celebrations this week. we have this here we're dealing with all of this is. silly and yet at least you need to see that blow if this is. from a person his first general election as president of the a.n.c. is trying to solidify his position in the party we support appears to be split
between him and his pigasus a jacob zuma so that some of the biggest regions of the a.n.c. across the country in case that and so it's very important to understand that if your kid is a dennys we divide it has possibility to divide the entire nation or to cause massive rifts within the a.n.c. and of course this is the base will. cause it in a towel is form a stronghold of opposition the in-car to freedom party there are concerns that a lack of unity within the a.n.c. allegations of corruption and poor delivery of services could see the party lose some of its supports to its rival. for me to mete out his era was in a town. it is. going to hear in doha the headlines on al-jazeera the runner up in the democratic republic of congo's presidential election has vowed to challenge the

home security cameras captured gavin chasing the young men out the front but he couldn't stop them stealing both their cars. it's just it's too traumatizing for me to go back there and member. i don't know how they can say that. the crime rate is falling because everyone like everyone i know it doesn't nobody feel safe. the teenagers described as being of african appearance a still on the run what every time i see a black person on the street or. just anywhere it's like a trigger. before all of this happened i wasn't scared of black people or people of color or whatever but now it's psych. i can even
say someone in a store that's black because of what's happened to me and i think that's really unfair and it shouldn't be like that. and. it's not it's not them like that i haven't done anything wrong to me but i can't help but associate that entirely with them as and that's what's really unfair. i was pretty cool quantities of african gangs running riot terrorizing robbing breaking after bush did you get to return to the north pole because your thought on . the i know you want. to sit outside will.

numbered around one hundred thirty young men. but after an intense crackdown on apex police it's now been dismantled we just don't see them you know we're just not saying. that group. crimes anymore. victoria police are basing further criticism with claims they've lost control just street gang has my view there is a specific problem in victoria to do with people of african background. i don't see it it's a violent african gang crisis. certainly we have an issue we have an issue with our youth in the state but i believe that we can timing that issue. everybody welcome to you know tell me who worked before so i had detective acting inspector child is

crime. high impact crime the numbers are quite small when you look at youth crime in particular we have the second lowest crime rate in this trial productivity commission measures victoria now as the most fearful state in the nation why are people feeling so scared if crime is dropping yeah i think that's a really interesting one and certainly you know one of the one of the things the victoria police and the cumi really need to focus on. to people have to base scythe i have to feel saif so there's a lot of perception issues i think that we need to deal with as well. brought aboard a. nineteen year old a dean came to australia from south sudan with his.
