and how on how to deal with this whether the army actually will respond to the demands. the. removal of president i think that remains to be seen and there's plenty more still ahead this news hour including going nowhere at top american airline extends the grounding of the plane at the center of crash investigations. and lining up for just a little bit of fuel frustrate sions growing into haiti as a crisis deepened. and supported the race for the italian title by capturing the event has to look like mission impossible. so the u.s. secretary of homeland security kirsten nelson out donald trump announced that she'd be leaving her position over twitter and while nelson says she resigned it it's
11:01 am
clear that trumps been less than happy of late with how the southern border has bee the handled article again takes a look at her legacy. it's fair to say the cures to nielsen will go down in history as the most controversial secretary in the history of the young department of homeland security she put in place what many saw as draconian policies under her watch thousands of children were ripped from their parents trying to cross the southern border many housed in crowded camps until a federal judge stepped in and demanded the families be reunited she leaves office with potentially thousands of children misplaced separated from their families and the government now says it could take up to two years to reunite them all because for many they didn't keep appropriate paperwork her actions were met with scorn and widespread protests at her home. i don't restaurant with marches across the u.s. and pleas from overseas that has got me to beg and asked president donald trump to
11:02 am
please return my baby soon i don't want to keep waiting a long time two months is enough punishment for mothers to learn not to cross she responded with a tweet saying there is no formal policy of separating families and justified her order with this this is ministration did not create a policy of separating families at the border both of those statements were lies simply not true according to inspector general's report she also attempted to end the program that allowed hundreds of thousands of people from honduras and el salvador to stay in the u.s. legally some who had been here for twenty years. she was also known for going out of her way to try and publicly please her boss asked in congress about reports he referred to african countries with a curse word she deflected asked why he wanted more people to immigrate from countries like norway her response was widely criticized. predominately white

country. i actually do not know that serve but i imagine that is the case she made sure not to upset the president when asked about russian interference in the election i haven't seen any evidence that the attempts to interfere in our election infrastructure was to favor a particular political party but there is evidence the intelligence community has explicitly said the russians wanted to help president trump. in repeated trips to the border recently the president made it clear he's so security here as an important campaign issue he says he wants his officials to be tougher and even though she was repeatedly by his side and said she supported his policies in the end none of it was enough to please the president she tried so publicly to impress leaving her department more controversial there when she came and more concretely thousands of families with the permanent scars of separation. al-jazeera washington

. and bill schneider is a political analyst of the public policy and public policy professor at george mason university and joins us from washington d.c. thank you very much for coming on the program as we heard there in that report. she was homeland security secretary was an ardent supporter of many of trump's controversial contentious policies that seemed to back him on a lot of polarizing issues so why do you think she was removed or resigned. the president made a pledge to his supporters when he was first elected in two thousand and sixteen that he would do something about illegal immigration well the problem is getting worse and the president does not want to face the supporters again next year and have to answer for the fact that illegal immigration has become a more serious problem than when he took office he's embarrassed by that and he holds her partly responsible would you say this her departure signals a change in policy in any way perhaps becoming even more hard line against
11:05 am
immigration exactly he wants a tougher policy he nominated the candidate to be the director of the immigration and customs authority but then he withdrew their nomination because he said you need someone who's tougher and nielsen was a supporter of his initial nominee he wants a tougher policy he's trying to close the border much of which would be illegal he wanted her he was pushing her to refuse to accept any more applications for asylum which would have been illegal and there were clearly places where she drew the line and refused to do what the president wanted her to do there is much speculation has that parts of her departure has to do with how she managed the president or was on able to manage the president so what kind of a person do you think needs to be in that position for trump to be happy or at least to support. someone who will actually do something about the problem if
11:06 am
it means closing the border close the border he can't get the money for the wall that he promised out of congress he claims he can get it from emergency spending that's likely to be tied up in the courts and he now wants the homeland security department just to shut down the border and would be very difficult it might be illegal but he wants someone to take drastic action and some of the people in the white house are with him on this they want the problem resolved before he has to answer to the voters and most particularly to his supporters because it was a key issue that got him elected but the question still remains is regardless of who is in that position would they still be able to get the funding that he wants for the wall or even push harder against immigration that is is this just all cosmetic well he wants someone who will do whatever it takes and that could be some illegal steps like shutting down the ports of entry to the united states no the homeland security secretary could not get the money out of congress they made it very clear they're not going to authorize or allocate that money goes funds to
11:07 am
build a wall and it's probably going to go to court before it's resolved and may not be resolved before the election so it's not clear what the homeland security secretary can actually do but the president has made it very clear that he wants someone to be tougher and more aggressive than secretary nicholson was thank you so much bill schneider with george mason university great to get your insight. saudi arabia state television says two suspects who attacked a security checkpoint in the east of the kingdom have been killed a man carrying explosives are said to have targeted a checkpoint in abu hadria that's maybe a shia area it's about five hundred kilometers northeast of the capital riyadh the highway links the east providence to bahrain and kuwait to others linked to the attack have also been arrested. the nissan chief who is fighting financial misconduct charges is expected to be sacked from the carmaker's board and just in

11:28 am
the gas crisis they bring any container they can find even a small amount of fuel might poetess all a car or bike operate for a couple of days venezuela used to provide the island with cheap oil but it stopped a year ago because of its own internal issues now the country's government has to buy fuel supplies on the open market. the company which ships oil to haiti has had a tanker ready to dorchen port au prince since february but says there will be no delivery until a huge chunk of an outstanding sixty million dollar bill is paid. for the gas crisis is causing the people to suffer greatly especially those who share transport it's causing a lack of electricity in the country and there are plenty of places that spend days without electricity it's a serious crisis and the lower the production the country in the economy and will cause a considerable impact on all growth for this year some of those who fuel have been selling it but jacking up the price we say there is no government in the country
11:29 am
because people are spending the night in misery to get petrol the contract should have been respected and paid on time to deliver the oil those who are in elected positions should be ashamed of themselves. many have been told deliveries will resume tomorrow but in haiti to morrow is always another day away alan fischer al-jazeera. american airlines says it won't fly boeing seven three seven max planes for another two months they are crap for mains grounded by u.s. regulators and other countries following crashes in ethiopia and didn't american airlines has canceled about ninety flights a day since mid march. while aviation journalist seth kaplan says it will take time for boeing to win back passengers confidence. when those planes start flying there are going to be nervous flyers and i think it's true what plane has been more scrutinized then this one right and i personally would get on one using that logic but you can't blame people for being nervous and ultimately with everything that
11:30 am
this aircraft has been through yeah it's just going to take a lot of safe departures and landings over a period of weeks and months for people to really gain back that confidence that fixes that boeing is working on to address the issues that caused these crashes but obviously it never should have gotten to this point so you can see that boeing does have somewhat of a credibility crisis u.s. regulators the f.a.a. by some of being late to ground the plane to it's just going to take them some time and doing everything they can to restore. these two crashes of an aircraft type that makes up a tiny percentage of all the aircraft in the world plus the one percent a new aircraft that should have been the safest ever obviously something went badly wrong with the process the question is why did it you know was the f.a.a. the american regulator just under resourced and just sort of relying too much on boeing because they did it because the best engineers are in many cases at boeing and we just as they compete for the same talent pool or was it something more than
11:31 am
that was boeing sort of lobbying to to have things that way those are the questions that are still being answered but with every aviation disaster there always are lessons learned and things change the last sort of entry into service is called when they are craft crisis that boeing had was with the dreamliner oh about a half decade ago nobody died there but a whole series of problems and things did change in that case at boeing obviously in this case with a loss of life even greater pressure and i think you'll see changes that boeing and the way regulators approach boeing. civilian vehicles have been barred from using the main highway and the administered kashmir for two days every week until the end of may question shinawatra has this report. and heavy military presence and little else on this crucial highway. the only one connecting the kashmir valley in the himalayas to the indian plains authorities in indian administers kashmir have
