migration challenge to the next here in europe the german chancellor is maneuvering to seal a deal soon on a new e.u. approach to migration if she fails her government could collapse and her time as chancellor could quickly be over and on this day seven of the soccer world cup in russia spain joined the first teams to go through to the lock out round when they beat iran in a tight battle we'll have that and the rest of the world cup action. u.s. president donald trump has signed an executive order to stop immigrant families from being separated at the country's border with mexico his move means that families entering the u.s. illegally will now be detained together on the practice of taking children away from their parents and the images of those crying children have. drawn
11:02 pm
international condemnation. protests like this one in new york have been taking place in cities nationwide. how does the government defend this by framing it as defending the borders. people who have crossed into the u.s. illegally are not criminals the trump administration says and a child cannot say with a criminal. so goes the logic. after a massive public outcry a president from signed a new executive order that would keep families together when they are detained in the processing and usually. we are very strong at the border we're very strong on security we want security for our country the republicans want security and it's a stored security for our country and we will have that at the same time we have compassion we want to keep families together it's very important over signing something a little while that's going to do that and the people in this room want to do that
11:03 pm
and they're working on various pieces of legislation to get it done but i'll be doing something that's somewhat preemptive but ultimately will be matched by legislation i'm sure. trump also continued to blame the democrats for the crisis democratic leaders pointed out that it was trump's policy that separated families in the first place and here we are bringing our concerns to the steps of the capitol once again once again to say to the president of the united states how low can you go. what is the measure of your character your compassion and your commitment to a better america that you would advocate a policy that rates children from the arms of their parents their mothers and or their fathers. an estimated two thousand children were separated from their parents at the us mexico border before trump decided to sign the new executive order.
11:04 pm
want to pull in our correspondent course of the nominees on the story for us in washington good evening to you karsten the u.s. president has been saying for days now that he could not and that he would not do anything to change this policy he said that an act of congress would have to change but today he used a pen and he did change it so how do we understand this move. well it seems that the public pressure and pressure from within his own republican party simply became too strong with their demands to end this policy of separating kids from families that immigrated illegally and quite clearly donald trump did something here that he didn't want to do he never needed the democrats or congress to end this he introduced this practice and he could also have ended it but clearly
11:05 pm
he wanted to use these children as a bargaining chip to force congress to give him more comprehensive immigration reform and also to give him money for the border wall that he promised but even members of his own party had been critical over the past few days about that some governors republican governors had withdrawn their national guard troops from the ball because they didn't want to be associated with this policy even a few christian evangelical leaders have voiced concern and so basically has been convinced that these pictures of children crying in cages could hurt the republicans big time at the upcoming midterm elections so the president wants to see this in political terms most of the country does not see it that way at least for now and so when we talk about this being a defeat for the u.s. president. i think i absolutely would never admit that but once again clearly he had to do something that he didn't want to do the
11:06 pm
democrats of course for him need it not for ending this policy but for getting reforms getting money for the border wall but the democrats always said they would not be blackmailed and they think now as we heard from nancy pelosi that donald trump made a big mistake that he presented himself as crude and without a hearts and so they think this will now help them in the november midterm elections so if we're honest there is some kind of a political play here to be seen on both sides of the aisle on the back of those in the polls that have been coming out of cars to sure that a majority of americans have always been against this zero tolerance policy of separating children from their parents but i'm wondering tonight how is this playing with trump's base. when according to the latest polls that we have between fifty five and sixty percent of republicans actually supports
11:07 pm
these policies let's not forget that immigration or a crackdown on immigration was one of the key issues for them and trump in his election campaign was one of the main reasons why people voted for trump so it seems clear that even though moderate republicans didn't like this and they fear that it might hurt them at the ballot boxes the core base of supporters they want to correct on illegal immigration they want more restrictions on gender on immigration in general and they want on the trump all kirsan pronominal the storyboards in washington carson thank you. well the german chancellor angela merkel is meeting with a group of e.u. leaders this weekend hoping to hammer out a solution to migration it is a divisive subject and it threatens the chancellor's coalition government americal is at odds with her interior minister he has given her a two week deadline to secure a unified e.u.

refugees without first having made agreements with neighboring countries. be months later and then whichever way you look at it migration is a european challenge perhaps the greatest challenge at the moment the cohesion of the european union is at stake. it is the role of peace in u. . a former refugee said an emotional highpoint a tamil who as a thirteen year old fled to germany without his parents and then grew up and started an impressive career here. it's been a tried list i didn't become a refugee voluntarily but i did come to germany voluntarily because it's so wonderful to live in a country where democracy reigns where we respect the constitution we must never allow our fundamental values to be threatened if it. and see who seem to be moved by the story of a man who went from refugee to heart surgery. to two conservative leaders or at
