deferred action for childhood arrivals program provides legal status to around eight hundred thousand young adults the judge said they would suffer serious irreparable harm dacca ended abruptly decided to stop the policy in march but congress has remained deadlocked on the issue despite this blow to trump's immigration reforms one thing he's not backing down on is the border wall with mexico to get more from cuba to help kids in washington d.c. . well certainly there has been repeated speculation about the president's mental fitness when it comes to his presidency those accusations intensifying in the past week but that may have been countered by a spontaneous press conference by the president a bipartisan appearance of both democratic and republican lawmakers here at the white house that appeared to run in front of the press real time negotiations on a thorny issue that has been under resolvable in the united states for years and
12:19 pm
that is the issue of illegal immigration as well as border security the president showing that he not only despite accusations to the contrary was engaged in new the issues but he also seemed to signal that there was a willingness to work with his critics particularly when it comes to issues like border security and something known as doc our deferred action on childhood arrivals essentially what to do about thousands of illegal immigrants brought to the united states living here for years but brought here as children many now adults we don't have six months from the start but i think you're going to negotiate i mean well agreement we won't i mean you know it's possible we're not going to agree with you when it's possible but there should be no reason for us not to get this done that joke i will say when this group comes back hopefully with that agreement this group and others from the senate from the house comes back with an agreement i'm trying to get i mean i will be signing now the issue of immigration is key to a looming deadline and that is funding the u.s.
12:20 pm
government that deadline a little more than a week away may have something to do with the fact that republicans democrats along with the president working together in a bipartisan fashion the president is still insisting that he wants funding for his border wall along with southern u.s. border with mexico but seems to be striking a more conciliatory tone with his political opponents that may have something to do with the fact that this is an election year congressional elections are set to be held in november. donald trump's former advisors steve bannan has resigned from his role as executive chairman of the right wing news website a break but this comes just days after bannon's remarks about charm and his son and new book bannon called a twenty sixteen meeting between donald trump jr and a group of russians treasonous bill schneider is a professor of public policy at george mason university he thinks chum's forty odd was steve bannon maybe temporary donald trump is very critical he calls him what do
12:21 pm
you call him sloppy steve and he denounced him he said that he thought he had lost his mind but trump has this history of attacking people and then eventually reconciling with them if trouble needs bannan particularly as we get closer to twenty twenty banning could be resurrected everything depends on how donald trump regards the ban and how we use him how he treats him most republican members of congress critically in the senate especially the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell they're doing a little happy dance tonight because they're very pleased with the downfall of the band and he was threatening to oppose them with insurgent candidates the insurgent candidates are still there look before there was the man and there was a tea party movement which ran insurgents against republican incumbents so the threat is still there but battle really a pit in my eyes than personalized that threat so for the moment the republican establishment is relieved casaus foreign ministry is considering more legal moves

you might expect it to be reassured that it's safe in a changing world but apparently not the border between northern ireland and the republic is fifteen kilometers down the road and cross border trade is crucial yet there has been no agriculture minister in northern ireland for nearly a year brics it is knocking on the door the farmers have come to look at politicians like these sheep leaderless and quite stupid it is hugely frustrating with that minister and players to make the final decision to be sitting round the table. getting the point across about the importance of northern ireland are great culture. it is frustrating to recap the former leader of the irish nationalists shin fein party collapse the government shared with the pro british unionists a year ago when their problems became too difficult to resolve since then the two sides have refused to compromise. it means in the government buildings in belfast

fact that there is a constitutional vacuum. there only. considered conclusion from bob is there is a risk to the peace process. caused by bribes that but as with everything here the same argument cuts both ways union this argument a violent is helping the nationalists when they lead london to support them it is very unnerving for unionists and i think that there is an irony in this a very deep irony that the d.p. with the largest voice in northern ireland calling for breaks that they are not the party which faces deep uncertainty as a result of breaks it and what was once an absolutely and cast down guarantee it seemed for at least a generation in northern ireland would remain british is no longer quite as certain as it seemed the good friday agreement is twenty years old in april the treaty which officially ended the sectarian war here has guaranteed the peace since then but brecht's it as throw it into doubt london and dublin between them it's
