2:06 am
but he express for hope the news of omicron will mean will not just the maintenance even getting a 1st vaccine shop, but very much the emphasis with the white house now is getting booster shots into the 100000000 eligible americans who have not yet got them, they will be contacted by various means, text females in order to get them and then they will be more results in family clinics, more mobile clinics, and so on. so people can get their shots as easily as possible goals. so testing, this is a bit of confusion little bit actually because by denounced that the home testing kits that are freely available in some parts of europe, for example, you have to pay for them in the u. s. he says that now that the health insurance companies will cover the cost of those, but still not clear whether people have to shell out initially to buy them, which isn't exactly that great of the cost, like 30 bucks, some confusion that and as i mentioned as far as international travel is concerned in the past, you needed a test within 72 hours arriving in the us. now that will be within one day of arriving in the u. s. and he promised as well to speed up efforts to vaccinate the
2:07 am
world, didn't he? how's he going to do that? yes, joe biden. keep saying, i mean, the, the u. s. has pledged more vaccines and any other, any other country in the world war than all of the other countries put together. but i haven't questions about how speedily those vaccines are getting to other countries. there. he has now pledged a speeding up of 200000000 shots being distributed within a 100 days. he said to developing countries, but it should also be remembered that this entire plan goes completely again, is what the world health organization recommended just on wednesday, which was for developed countries with 70 percent or more off eligible adults vaccinated not to give them booster shots, but to completely concentrate on getting as many doses of vaccine to the rest of the world. busy as possible, it's pretty clear that the u. s. is going in a different direction. they all taken care of their own. but as always, claiming to be mindful about if you really want to stop new variables from

developing, you do need to get the vaccine into underserved areas of the world. she have. thank you. she ever tansy in washington for us. now the us secretary of state antony blinking has met russia's foreign minister. saggy le rovers, the divide between moscow and washington widens of ukraine. lincoln says he remains concerned about what he called russia's aggressive policy towards kia lever of his adamant russia will protect its interests by a smith reports from moscow. this was the 1st face to face meeting between antony, blanket and surg, lovegrove. since joe biden became us president, the us secretary of state use the encounter to warn russia of the serious consequences, including sanctions, if it invades ukraine. it's now on russia to deescalate the current tensions by reversing the recent troop filled up. returning forces to normal peace time positions, and refraining from further intimidation and attempts to destabilize ukraine were
2:09 am
watching the situation very closely, were in close contact and coordination with our allies, russian back separatists in eastern ukraine had been patrolling these trenches for more than 7 years after russia next crimea, now a build up of russian troops along the border. more than $90000.00 says the government in kiev is fueling fears of a russian invasion. across the field, ukrainian force is a holding exercises. russia says ukraine is being provocative, deploying more than half its army, 125000 people to the east. russia dismisses as inflammatory, any suggestions, its preparing to attack? the kremlin is also floating the idea of a new, your appeal security packed to try to stop nato from expanding further east. we, as president preaching stated, do not want any conflicts. but if nato partner has stated at no one has a right to dictate to a country that would like to join nato,
2:10 am
whatever it can do or not, we can say to every country is able to define its own interest to guarantee dare security. in the spring, there was a similar show of russian strength along the ukraine border tension eased. after a 1st summit meeting between the russian and us presidents. russia's deputy foreign minister says he's hoping for confirmation that there'll be some sort of contact between vladimir putin on joe biden, in the coming days could be a phone call or a virtual meeting if it does happen, then just as in earlier this year, that could go a long way to calming tensions on the ukraine. russia border, bernard smith, al jazeera, moscow, and the united states government will restart a trump era border program. the forces asylum seekers to wait in mexico for us immigration hearings. the biden administration had originally scrap the controversial remain in mexico program, but a court order in august for them to reinstated migrants are expected to be sent
2:11 am
back as early as next week. i'm. i kind of has more from washington. well, that texas court ruling was upheld by the supreme court, which agreed that the vital had ministration had not investigated fully enough before removing this particular law. biden had described the low interviews by president trump as in humane and his administration got rid of it immediately. however, now, in the light of the supreme court judgment, the administration is we introducing this remain in mexico protocol. it has been the last few months a discussing with the mexican government ways in which this could be imposed in a far more humane manner than it was in the past. this includes, for example, providing transport for individuals to encampments within mexico, where they can stay while they are waiting the court cases to proceed with the united states. a significant matter as well was that the us agreed to make because
2:12 am
demand for a time limit on the legal process, a maximum of 6 months to be taken to decide the case of each particular individual . but this is, of course, going to have a massive impact on tens of thousands of people, the bite and administration. one understands is looking at its immigration protocols to see how it can rewrite its immigration policies in a way that would satisfy the courts and conservative politicians. now leon, fresco is an immigration attorney who was us deputy assistant attorney general in charge of immigration during the obama administration. he joins us live now via skype from washington to talk more was thanks very much for being with us. so just remind us on what legal grounds did that federal court earlier this year justify their ruling to force the biden administration to, to reinstate this, remain in mexico policy from, from when trump was present. so what they said was,
2:13 am
they used a law in the, in the united states called the administrative per fee direct. and what the administrative procedure act says is that no administration can change a policy of a prior administration if it is doing it for arbitrary and breach. of 3, and so what the court concluded, and it went all the way up to bring carter, and they agreed that the biden administration, the reason for discontinuing the remain in mexico program were in sufficiently persuasive. so the level they claimed that he was arbitrary and capricious as such that the revocation could not occur. and the remain in mexico policy had to continue. and why is this program seen by many as controversial? is it because of the humanitarian concerns over what might happen to the, to the migrants while they're waiting in mexico for their hearings to come up in the us? correct. traditionally,
2:14 am
when people have come to the united states for asylum, the understanding was that we would protect people seeking asylum in our shores until it was proven that they were not people were valid asylum seekers. this turns that on it. and so the only way you ever get but come in to the united states is to finish your asylum plane and when, and so from that perspective, even forgetting about whatever conditions you can make to make this program more palatable. just flipping that narrative on that upside, for a lot of people, there are those who will argue that many of the people who are trying to get into the u. s. from mexico. not really asylum seekers, but essentially economic migrants and that they are using the asylum, the u. s. asylum policy as a way to get in rather than to other legal means. what do you say to
2:15 am
that? well yeah, i think there are certainly a number of people because i live in the united states that are not legitimate asylum seeker, there is no doubt about that. and the question is, where do you make the error? you make the error in letting someone in who might not be supposed to be here and then removing them or do you make the error and making everyone wait? and then someone baby was the legitimate a violent speaker might be harmed or something bad might happen to them while they're waiting at mexico. ready waiting for come to the united states. and so the question is, where do you mitigate the error and the, by the ministration want to mitigate error in the united states. whereas the drop administration wanted to mitigate the error in mexico and for the moment that's where the policy is that, that any error is going to be on the fight up making people way to mexico. who might otherwise be legitimate, a violent speaker, as opposed to letting people wait in the united states,
2:16 am
