work in the fields of love along to help her family get by. i'm brian thomas a very warm welcome to the show a judge in the united states has barred president trump from denying asylum to migrants who entered the country illegally through mexico the judge said the order represented quote an extreme departure from normal practice in the u.s. the ruling comes as the u.s. steps up security at its border with mexico to prevent what the trumpet administration calls large groups of people from running across the border it's installed more barbed wire and concrete barrier gate caves to prevent any uncontrolled crossings. thousands of migrants from central america are currently waiting in the mexican city of tijuana to apply for asylum in the u.s.
10:02 am
some locals are unhappy about their presence there. we don't want you here that's the message of around two hundred residents protesting the arrival of thousands of central american migrants the demonstration underlines the growing tension here the protesters accuse the migrants of forcing their way into mexico and of being ungrateful for the help they're offered no kerry must pay what we have not return our government to support this farce or oh no the most when we all know it's a sham. when in africa they're just bringing their problems here but only mucky. they're here to use us the government is spending a lot of money on them already although there are many poor people here. the protest march targeted the city sports stadium which has been turned into a makeshift shelter for the migrants a police barrier kept them out but the people inside were trapped in the stadium
10:03 am
all day. and also not leaving the stadium because we don't want to instigate any violence we fled violence and don't want to cause more of it in the. locals threw stones at the migrants twice in the last week the people who arrived with a caravan are frightened. because. we're in great danger they come from areas of mexico that don't want to hear their disguises garbagemen they're armed and want to attack us. they hit a child on the head when they threw stones at us. the army appeared imo the flare up of xenophobia and mexican towns along the migrants route is unprecedented and wanna locals are angry because the city is ill equipped to deal with the influx of people who sleep on the streets and rely on aid organizations for food they depend on you know when someone is handing out chocolate everyone
10:04 am
crowds around people are desperate they've had to torture is journey and do it to survive there's no food in the shelters. but again during our eyes and in the end there's no get out there racially charged comments from local politicians have heightened tensions a prominent example is tier one as mayor juan manuel augusta lume who called the migrants lazy a deputy of the state governor drove home his law and order message at the protest . with also receive utils at the middle of all governments and society will welcome them and help them not only in keeping with the law residents here are very generous but they want rules to be upheld. a lot of the. previous such rhetoric has done nothing to cool the hot heads on the streets. with more and more migrants crowding into the city there is plenty of scope for the
10:05 am
protests to grow. ok let's get the very latest from our correspondent stuff and simon standing by for us in wana stuff and what are you hearing are these protests going to continue very likely that they are continue to happen in the next few days maybe in the next few weeks or even months because that's actually how officials into juana as well as people on the street foresee things to be happening here more influx from migrants and caravan migrants the so-called caravan migrants into to juana and of course this takes a toll on the city of tijuana as we heard in the report there have limited resources here and some people to really put this in perspective are really concerned and hostile against those migrants but you wanted a city of one point six million people and two hundred protesters over the weekend and maybe a few more down the line in the next few weeks i just want to make sure that this
10:06 am
is because past perspective the city has just won a in general and the people here are not the hall still per se against the caravan migrants which are now in the shelter. ok now us stuff and thanks for that perspective american authorities closed their border crossing with masks co yesterday for part of the day i can you tell us what triggered that. well yeah actually you can see it right behind me here this is needed off the busiest border crossing between mexico and the u.s. at the border between mexico and the u.s. . the u.s. officials said that they had to close lanes which are now open again and quite busy as you can see but that's a day and night event here in quanah because they were afraid of a rush attempts of some migrants or caravan migrants. across the border that's why they put a bob wire up and more concrete barriers i asked to also tell you that there's a lot of people into quanah if you speak to them they tell you that this was no way
10:07 am
anywhere close to a rush of migrants making it towards the border because those caring migrants which are now in the shelter are exactly there in the shelter they're not even closer to the border those are mexicans or other people who have the appropriate papers you can go up to california right across the border right there and then come back tomorrow or whenever they want to stuff and symes bring us up to date from tijuana well where he'll continue to be posting the very latest from there thanks so much for that stuff. now for a look at some of the other stories making the news today nissan and mitsubishi shares climbing following the rest of their chairman carlos going for alleged financial misconduct the automakers are preparing to oust koen who also chairs renault all owing allegations that include misuse of company assets. a commuter train has derailed outside the spanish city of barcelona killing one person and

10:09 am
joined by tamera carollo from the charity save the children in sana'a yemen thanks so much for being with us tamera there's been renewed fighting at the key port of who died what does that mean for the millions of yemenis totally reliant on on food aid that comes through that port city. well as you said this could result in millions more people becoming crewdson secure meaning that they don't know where their next meal is coming from already we have eight and a half million people on from a date under six pack to see if the fighting were to continue that millions more will rely on that but also there is a tragic impact on those three hundred thousand people still inside the data we've seen hospitals destroyed we've seen a huge increase in number of civilian casualties in the last ten days we have to support at least thirty children that have been injured because of the bullets
10:10 am
stray bullets or of shrapnel. recently yesterday suppliers within the city have started out what stocks they have a food so it's not just a toy situation in the country but really urgent issue cruel to civilians and children stuck inside for they don't know and it's also an urgent issue for many politicians around the world un brokered peace talks are going to convene over the next few weeks tamera how hopeful are yemenis that that these talks will produce some kind of results. well i think i think there is a sense of hope and precisely because there is no other solution i mean the conflicts puttered about four years ago and korea half since the saudi america or that coalition intervened in the fighting and. very resilient people and we can see that you know as we work with them but what we've seen over the last few months especially with the increase of prices of fuel and food and making more difficult people to be able to to get to living that that resilience is starting to to to
10:11 am
wither so no definitely we're hopeful and believe that the international community is doing the right thing fitting as much political pressure on all the parties to fold up peace process so absolutely critical not a trap that's ok what will happen if the fighting that's resumed in the data continues will you be able to do your work if this important port continues to do seem more fighting. well it will make to extremely extremely difficult now remember for almost a year now the u.n. and mentoring committees been calling yemen the worst humanitarian crisis in the world so you can imagine the scale of already twenty two million people are in need of support that's three quarters of the population if today the port becomes operable and the supplies of fuel both humanitarian and commercial which country relies on we can see a situation where millions more people will be food insecurity and will need
10:12 am
support and potentially. push or shamming into an arm and so. the worst humanitarian crisis in the world would become and we're ok well we hope you can continue to alleviate the situation as much as you can tomic are all us from save the child the children joining us from sana thanks very much. it's to level on now where refugee families who've escaped the harvests in syria are now being forced to hire out their children as day laborers to make ends meet some one hundred eighty thousand refugee children lebanon are working long hours for little pay no place as a higher concentration of syrian refugees than lebanon's bekaa valley to bring him travel to a u.n. camp there has been looking at the plight of one family a shared by many others it is six in the morning and lebanon's bekaa valley
10:13 am
eight year old so my i just woke up a splash of cold water in the face and she is ready for work. her family fled syria to escape i asked her now they're in lebanon where they can't always afford breakfast so my assures this tiny makeshift bed with three of her six siblings. and she doesn't go to school there are no schools in the camp where would she go to school so why is mother is sick and cannot go to work her older siblings also work the summa still needs to pitch in to help the family make ends meet so instead of getting on a school bus some a gets on the strike every morning where she is the only child among many adults. for two dollars a day collects whatever crop is ready for harvest in the bekaa valley.
10:14 am
today it is onions and her hands are too little for the gloves the adults around her wear. when i came here from home today can collect the onions but i would rather have toys to play with. three quarters of syrian refugees in lebanon live under the poverty line according to unicef an estimated one hundred eighty thousand syrian refugee children like soumaya have been forced into child labor in the country so a lot more through i don't get mad when she goes to work and i stay at home of course i'm not happy with that she's just a small child and has to carry so much weight it could break her back it's hard for her that she should be at least thirteen or fourteen to do walk like that. so many refugee families in lebanon rely on their children to pay the bills and the resources of aid agencies are overstretched it's unlikely that some i will be able
10:15 am
to stop working and the time soon don't forget there's war on these and other stories are website up you dot com for now though for me bryan thomas an entire team thanks so much for being with us we have to see you again at the top of the hour but. what if we were wrong when do we want it now eighty percent of americans at some point in our lives will experience hardship. it's.
