seekers have throughout the course of the last eight years or so been called illegal in traitors by authorities here not my purpose not seekers and that's one of the points which today was interesting that the prime minister actually started calling migrants in starting to now move forward and not do this mass deportation plan which had come under such criticism it was hailed as in success by the n.g.o.s by the civil society to in argue against this however they did say it will be see how this will unfold one now in a dramatic each and i think it's safe to say it's been put on hold because of his right wing not happy about this saying that you know they need to discuss this further it will need to be consult in the needs to vote on it in the cabinet. the number of people killed by israeli troops during protests on girls as border on friday has now risen to seventeen more than fourteen hundred others were injured friday was the first day of

7:17 am
time for to take a look at the top stories here it out is there a tribute to being paid to south africa's former first lady winnie medical. has died at the age of eighty one she played a leading role in the anti-apartheid movement and was married to the nation's first black president nelson mandela throughout his twenty seven years in prison. twelve members of one family have been killed in a saudi led coalition air strike in yemen seven of them were children the missiles hit a housing complex in the hootie held city of data israel's prime minister has suspended a deal with the u.n. to resettle more than sixteen thousand african asylum seekers in europe and north america benjamin netanyahu made a u. turn within hours of announcing the agreement under pressure from members of his own government. and the new crossing by more than a thousand central american migrants into mexico has prompted
7:18 am
a storm of criticism from the u.s. the so-called east caravan is all the lies by activists who aim to highlight the plight of people escaping crime and poverty donald trump has accused mexico of failing to do enough to prevent them from entering the united states john home and reports from mexico city. become every which way they can put in buses and trucks central american migrants crossing into mexico looking for sanctuary here or in the united states they usually go in small groups with every act to be sold. to bring awareness to the plight of poverty or criminal gangs in their homelands particularly salvador and honduras. it started with threats and i'm a woman and while men can do more than me we couldn't pick. any solution except to come here and that's it i think a lot of the caravan organizers hope that the sheer numbers will keep them safe
7:19 am
from the cartels which often kill and extort migrants and mean the authorities let them stay or pass through so far they've been granted free passage that's infuriated u.s. president donald trump who tweeted mexico is doing very little if not nothing stopping people from flowing into mexico through their southern border and then into the u.s. that on the whole is not true over the last four years mexico has drastically tightened up its southern border with the help of funding from the u.s. usually migrants accord in a web of patrols and checkpoints there have been many accusations of human rights abuses the tolerance for caravans like this one is the exception not the rule something mexican foreign minister luis fee that i highlighted on trump's preferred battleground he tweeted every day mexico and the u.s. work together on migration throughout the region the facts clearly reflect this the government here would hope that its efforts to stop migrants heading through mexico
7:20 am
to the u.s. would help the relationship with the northern neighbor but president trump doesn't appear to see it that way after learning about the caravan even threaten to cool off a trade deal between the countries it's impossible to know how many of the tweeted threats will turn into policy but it's another headache for the mexican government and an unhappy signal for those who say going home is not an option john home and how does it or mexico city. i mean the u.s. department of justice is announcing it will evaluate immigration judges on how efficiently they deal with cases it's in an effort to clear up a backlog of court cases an official has more from washington. it's estimated there own six hundred eighty thousand cases to be dealt with by the immigration courts the department of justice wants to see that number significantly reduced they want to see the number of people hanging around waiting for their court dates essentially to go away because they can apply for work or they're waiting for the
7:21 am
case to be hammered you know what the department of justice would like to see is a judge's processing somewhere in the region of seven hundred cases a year at the moment the average is just under about six hundred eighty so the department of justice says this isn't a huge leap this is just probably dealing with three cases a day for every judge and they point to the fact that some judges deal with more than a thousand cases in the year but the difficulty is some immigration cases are a lot more complicated than others know immigration judges when they signed a new collective agreement with the government there greed to the introduction of some quarters and so the department of justice is saying from the beginning of the new financial year and tobar we want to see this going forward it could be open to challenge in the courts particularly from people who would be concerned the judges are more interested in processing the number of cases rather than jus a process in their courtrooms so although the department of justice issued this
7:22 am
statement to all immigration judges on friday before the easter holiday in the united states it's clearly something that could well play out over the coming months as we see likely illegal challenges to this idea from donald trump's the partment of justice. and staying in the u.s. the trump administration says it plans to reverse high a fuel efficiency standards for vehicles the santas were set in twenty twelve and they would have required also to make as to their lead double the average fuel economy of new cars and trucks by the at twenty twenty five to one hundred reports from washington. with the obama administration gives the trumpet ministration is proving again it can take away the head of the u.s. environmental protection agency says he plans to weaken plan fuel efficiency standards in a statement e.p.a. administrators got pruitt says the obama administration's determination was wrong saying obama's e.p.a.
