they say there are not enough officers there and they simply do not have enough accommodation for the numbers that are coming across this obviously playing on president trump's mind eating to his angry outbursts in the course of the day. president trump arrives to view a rehabilitation project at a lake in florida but it's not the wind blowing water level or this dam wall that's our foremost on his mind rather his fury with what he describes as mexico's reluctance to prevent immigration across the southern border so mexico is tough they can stop them but they chose not to now they're going to stop them and if they don't stop them with closing the border they will close their work we'll keep a close for a long time i'm not playing games mexico has to stuff it this repeating what he said in earlier tweets if mexico doesn't immediately stop all illegal immigration coming into the united states through our southern border emitting the h.
in his anger i will be closing the border or large sections of the border next week it's a threat the president made 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 fuelling president 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 mexico's president has
responded saying he's not going to get into a war of words with trump no well you're. full of essentialist i'm not going to start an argument over this i'm going to be very cautious due to a series of circumstances a long time because we want to lead a very good relationship with the government of the united states well there's also been swift reaction from people on the mexican side of the border and here is a man the queues are very large one has to trust to be able to work the migrants came to make things more difficult for us mexicans. that statement by trump is very elemental we are a binational region and we depend on friendship family ties i don't think it will affect us but it's lamentable for the president of the united states to break those statements the reports into possible russian interference in the twenty sixteen us election instead to be released to the public in mid april attorney general william
barr has already summarized its findings in a letter to congress the report found no conspiracy between the trump campaign and russia but reached no judgment on obstruction of justice allegations against the president democrats are demanding the full report be released some parts are expected to remain classified. hundreds of thousands of people have crowded into algeria's capital in the biggest anti-government protests or saw demonstrators are demanding an overhaul of the entire political system there as victoria reports the for the past six weeks they've been demanding change it every level of the political establishment. and they're determined to keep up the pressure on president abdelaziz bouteflika and his backus was the route for actually dran because they see governors have dropped us off everything we are tired and fed up with them they have to leave. all the protests have been almost entirely
peaceful in at least one location police used water cannon to break up the crowned . the. earlier this week the army backed protests to schools will be to flicker to step down the ruling party its coalition partner and algeria its biggest union have also joined the cools the him to go the national louis union reemphasized is demand that the eighty two year old president must leave office. 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 that respects the southern tier of the people and the principle of the law of the union calls for a positive response to the demands of the people within whom 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 it was a similar scene in his ghonim in the west. was we want to move to a real democratic country for a transitional period and to set a new algerian government which will be elected by the people and not by this. governments we are against this government the but even if beautifully does that will be enough for the protesters they want the resignation of the ruling elite that is settling side beautifully with the twenty year is there anything like that to happen the powerful military would have to agree and it's very sensitive to signs of instability and then the end everyone is waiting for the constitutional council to rule beautifully conspicuous but office based on health reasons it's given no indication when it will make a decision if it rules the president unfit for office parliament must induced the decision by
a two thirds majority even if that happens it will only just begin to fulfill the demands of hundreds of thousands of algerians who've spoken out in protest victoria gate and be there. sudan has freed a newspaper editor who spent weeks in jail for criticizing the president also ghani opposed the she has 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 a government crackdown on dissent and media freedom. during my detention which felt like a long time i was not able to know why i was detained and this is because i did not face any question.
