back in december but never carried it through however his latest comments follow warnings from the department of homeland security that its resources have become strained and border officials say more people are expected to be apprehended at the border this march than in any month in more than a decade the consequences of closure would be severe impacting on two way trade that is worth more than six hundred billion dollars a year and fueling president trumps fire his homeland secretary kirsten nielsen issued a press statement later on in the day saying that the situation at the border was in freefall very strong words from the homeland secretary and words that the president is likely to seize on in the days ahead well none of our republic joins us live from tijuana a city in mexico close to the u.s. border manuel just how are people reacting to this news in mexico.
one of the first reactions that we heard was from he's the foreign minister from mexico who took to twitter saying that mexico does not act on threats he added that mexico is a good neighbor to the united states and for the most part people in mexico don't tend to hang on to every statement or to every tweet published by president trump what we can say is that mexico has been proactive has been acting at the directive of the united states on several policies related to the border including policies that contradict mexico's own policies that are designed to protect and guarantee rights for migrants policies that include containment of migrants and migrant children and another policy the so-called remain in mexico program that requires central american asylum seekers to remain in mexico to come back to mexico and wait for their asylum process to be to be completed in the united states this of course is a departure from decades of asylum policy in the united states that would otherwise
allow central american asylum seekers to wait in the united states while their court cases are called upon so when we're hearing this rhetoric from the president of the united states calling on mexico to stop the flow of migrants with this is lacking is specificity because what we're hearing overwhelmingly from immigration experts is that without addressing the root cause of migration in the northern triangle of central america honduras and guatemala which are you know levels of poverty that are extreme levels of violence that are extreme as well as instability and political corruption without addressing those issues there is no stemming the flow of migrants there is no curbing back the phenomenon of migrant caravans that we've seen played out over the last year so it would be interesting to hear what exactly the trumpet ministration is proposing for mexico to do to truly stem the flow of migration through mexico and in the united states might about apologizing us there from tijuana thanks very much for bringing us up to date

prepare for a city darby a star player lean on messi takes aim at his critics in argentina. where hundreds of thousands of people have crowded into all jarius capital in the biggest antigovernment protests so far demonstrators are demanding an overhaul of the entire political system more from charles stratford. the six week of peaceful protests in algeria of so far no change in government but many algerians feel they have never been closer look twenty years is enough so get out oh dearie as many candidates who are competent to take the job so why would the regime stifle them in their own country are you this there's a breath of fresh air algeria doesn't deserve this we deserve to live in peace. i'm
here to confirm the people's demands they have to listen to us. earlier this week the army back to the coolest the president abdulaziz with a flicker to step down. the ruling party its coalition partner and algeria's biggest union have joined the calls for beautifully could to go the national lawyers union reemphasize its demand that the eighty two year old president must leave office. he has been my wife and we reiterate our support for the peaceful popular movement which calls for a change in the system of governance the creation of a new republic the. respect to supper and to the people and the principle of the law the union calls for a positive response to the demands of the people within whom as sovereign power resides. local media reported millions of people came out to demonstrate in towns and cities across the country this is the town of g. jail in the east. and it was
a similar scene in misc running in the west. we want to move to a real democratic country a transitional created to set a new algerian government which will be elected by the people and not by this government we are against this government oh but even if beautifully could does go that won't be enough for the protesters they want a complete overhaul of an establishment that has been entrenched in power since algeria's independence from france in one thousand nine hundred sixty two they want the resignation of the ruling elite it is such a long sign to flee for twenty years for anything like that to happen the powerful military would have to agree and it's very sensitive to signs of instability. everyone is waiting for the constitutional council to rule beautifully because fitness for office based on health reasons it's given no indication when it will make a decision if it rules the president on foot fall face parliament must indorsed the
decision by a two thirds majority even if that happens it will only just begin to fulfill the demands of the hundreds of thousands of algerians who have spoken out and protest. al-jazeera. so let's look out soldier is reeling elites and their connection to president specifically first the military rituals a loss of power behind the scenes and the postes top officers will replace if they posed any challenge to boots if the protesters are also not in favor of the. position that's because they're seen to be part of the same system that's helped pacifica stay in power for twenty years business leaders are closely aligned to the people in power as well many are routinely awards at large contracts and government loans for public am private projects in return the government gets campaign donations on favorable media coverage well cloyd stephen is
a research chair of the european council on foreign relations she says the protesters are still figuring out what they want for old syria after which if they could goes it's clear that the protesters week after week as they've come out have felt that they've they've they've felt a sense of unity in a power that they've never felt before and it is this has led to increasingly ambitious demands as the weeks passed but it isn't yet clear that they can achieve the knee and the demands that are no on the table in terms of really oversight over training the whole system than just president putin. so it seems increasingly likely the president would typically will go whether there will be a real transition and
a real change in terms of the power structures in the country is much more questionable i think that whilst not everybody who is that protesting has a strong idea of what the institutional framework would look like there are there are certainly people who are who are organizing meetings and conferences in universities in public. in issues across the country to discuss walk the future should look like. cyd urn hers freed a newspaper editor who spent weeks in jail for criticizing the president also on a gun in the polls tomorrow bashir is decision to declare a state of emergency during ongoing demonstrations rights groups say more than fifty people have been killed since protests began in december over the price of bread they escalated into calls for the president to step down sparking

that the arabs refuse the occupation to be given names other than occupation nor the occupation force be given legitimacy we say it loud and clear that the golan is an occupied arab syrian territory as per the international law and the un s.c. resolutions any unilateral declaration of sovereignty over the golan by any state is in conflict with this fact and will not change the true reality well is al-jazeera senior political analyst he says lack of unity means the arab league will take little action on the many issues facing the middle east the arab league any original or international organizations like the united nations like the european community or the european union union. when its members are committed to its charter when they are truly representative of the people and and truly loyal to
this group being then the group it works the arab league's continues to fail because its member states continue to fail because out of regimes today care only about one thing their survival's they don't get about anything they don't care about most i mean most of the arab regimes cared about their survival they don't get it by their people's interest they don't care about the collective political and strategic work at the arab league headquarters in cairo there are some magnificent documents about joint defense about a road map to economic common market about cultural this and that and the other thing but none of them see the light why because there's so much division among that up so much weakness and of course so much chaos because of the way out abrasion teams have responded to popular uprisings in various countries still to come on al-jazeera. suffering from the legacy of war we'll have more on the war
