a mission for america. it's about the idea that you had. raised. it's about it's about the believing in your dreams it's about them. as a filmmaker i would want my audience to support that when men begin first as a unit i would definitely want my audience today jumble with it and say yes this is what i want and. i have tried to be very honest with them the story isn't mine yes i did rip it off from my sister was a childhood incident she was the one who planted chocolate all of them so i have to put in the lumens of my childhood off but i suppose in my influences that i've had . the little incidents that used to take place in my own backyard i have cried a little bit of everything to stay honest to the point being but still big the hole even from my point of view. i'm trying to create that language where this kid is
4:18 pm
a shy kid and it doesn't speak to that is how i ended up not giving him more. than ever the need to be i wanted him to express through i just didn't want anything to shout and scream and cry just assure that his discipline i wondered something which is very subtle that he expresses but it's barely an expression is a shy kid although he doesn't speak he would still stand for his dreams for his believe. the nation will give you a lot of difficulty because you know the truth but when it when it comes down to flipping those pages and understanding animation or everything goes for cost at least my first five line drawings follow and for the whole because i don't know what they were like i did and they were not working on though there was this one man that i started playing and i said yes i'm going to go it's really ok.

4:22 pm
hello and welcome to the program i'm elizabeth piron i'm more than two million afghan refugees in pakistan now living in uncertainty as a deadline for them to leave the country expired on saturday the government in islamabad announced last year that all afghan refugees must return to their homeland a proof of registration cards have been extended a number of times but the government says eventually they will all have to leave for many of these refugees pakistan is and always has been home afghan families first began seeking asylum in pakistan in one nine hundred seventy nine when all broke out so many of them were born and raised there they also say conditions are not safe enough for them to return but the pakistani government says its economy cannot afford what it calls the burden of the refugees any longer come our high the has more from the capital islamabad. ever since the russian and raise you know
4:23 pm
vanished on nineteen seventies the van refugees have corp august on their home the government of pakistan has been exerting pressure on these refugees to go back because they say they say you will die sanctity by militant outfits which are targeting father son however the relationship between kabul and islamabad has become. several rounds of talks between the civil and military leadership august on and as far as dealing with the fund refugees as concerns the country is also due to hold an election on the green the fifth of july. new government will be in place in islamabad to take decisions on the future relationship with afghanistan and the plight of the afghan refugees residing in this country the united nations high commission for refugees is optimistic that despite the fact that it was indeed
4:24 pm
their day to nine the government of pakistan was likely to increase that deadline. and to ease the suffering of the of one refugees in a dieting across this country this is some of the higher the reporting for insight story from islamabad. well almost one point four million registered afghan refugees were living in pakistan at the beginning of this year the un's refugee agency estimates up to one million registered but also there since then only twenty one thousand that's fewer than one percent have returned to afghanistan that's according to the un's humanitarian office around one hundred fifty thousand left last year when pakistan first announced its repatriation plans but fewer than half the registered refugees helped by the u.n. h.c.r. the others either went back of their own accord or were deported by pakistan. but let's bring in our guest now joining us from kabul is riaz some other former
4:25 pm
afghan refugee in pakistan who returned to afghanistan in two thousand and three here in the heart of either an investigative journalist from pakistan and also from kabul as william carter head of the program at the norwegian refugee council a very warm welcome to all of you must to say that let me start with you. should the deadline for afghan refugees to leave pakistan be extended once again what is at stake here for them. thank you very much for having me here. i believe it should be extended there is a need for extension and the government of pakistan shouldn't be using the refugees as a political pressure at the moment evelyn government doesn't have that capacity of the moment to absorb those huge number of refugees and the government can prioritize government of afghanistan can prioritize different categories of for refugees which can be observed for example those who have some established
4:26 pm
businesses or those who are related in family members abroad but those who are living with very limited means in pakistan will be very difficult for them to to absorb and to adjust to the environment of afghanistan so the government of pakistan should comply to the reform in principle and extend this deadline. of why off to hosting afghan refugees for nearly forty decades has pakistan somewhat of a pattern in them and made such a priority of it in the last two here is why at this time. well the on say is very clear since because a government in the falling government of afghanistan has been doing is has been ruled by its own people and there has been no plan as such as to how the refugees are going to go back there is no public pressure as such on the flounder if it is to be returned to be repatriated there is
4:27 pm
a sympathy there is that brotherhood that was there in nine hundred seventy nine to a great degree but when there are incidents of terrorism and somehow of one day if it is are found involved in them or in political protests like pushed through in the first movement the recent political upsurge then it raises some concerns more so because of economic reasons as kamaal deported from istanbul but. has been in distress for various you know the reason for various reasons internal issues corruption mismanagement and now. have these all of them snowball and create a scenario for his down to a plan from afghanistan and forty eight people at creation and understanding generally is that of what is done is not serious about taking the responsibility of the refugees as much as that if he does want to stay and pakistan and a stand there were liberal it be the same feeling of ownership is not there in
4:28 pm
kabul mr william kata do you think of gunfire is in a position to take these refugees back given the number of violent attacks and the instability that continues in the country i mean just last year to three thousand five hundred thirty eight people were killed in attacks more than seven thousand engine. yes we would agree that now would not be the best time for people to be encouraged to return back to afghanistan security instance of going up control over parts of the country has really gone down and the situation is very very fragile and uncertain with the elections coming we saw a large wave of people of refugees feeling forced to return in two thousand and sixteen from pakistan to eastern afghanistan. it's a very tenuous position province on the border with pakistan. as seen in
4:29 pm
the islamic states aligned groups fight with the taliban fight with the governments and international military forces it's a province where the mother of all bombs was dropped last year a province where just a few months ago our colleagues at save the children in eastern afghanistan were unfortunately attacks it's really a unsafe situation right now we also say that in our own studies and research which rates released earlier in this year and generally pointed out of those hundreds and thousands of people that come back in two thousand and sixteen many of them had been forced to flee again or leave their homes because of insecurity or because they haven't found a basic services available to them really there's not a solution here just yet we really hope that the government of pakistan remains patients and that the incest community can support refugee staying in pakistan who have been very on the whole generous host over for decades. hosting sting afghan
4:30 pm
refugees but now really is not the right time for people to feel forced or encouraged to come back and that's another that well what do you make of that because you know u.s. citing the security and economic reasons that pakistan is considering and sending these refugees back but as mr carter has been saying there is a real security problem where there is a lack of it in afghanistan so how much how high is that a factor in the pakistani government's consideration here well that's a very well of point insecurity enough quantised and has risen and this is a sign that the government in kabul is not effective which does is the concern in the there's the harwood these refugees eventually go back if it's if gobble cleaves who is in control and militants whether they are days. taliban or other factions they continue to go and gain more space and operate in larger areas than they were like five years ago or two years ago or that concerned very much exists or what is
4:31 pm
it what is more important is the commitment that gobbles showed or lacks to show on the table and in its plans as my friend sadat said in kabul that did this should be a priority this should be a serious and and discussion about how in phased manner all these refugees can go there is little progress on that account and his stomach feels that these this political politicize ation of the issue which is being said and termed helps. washington and other stakeholders realize that this is not obliged to continue this hospital a t for a very long time on the other hand i would just give you any separate example there is this movement called open the border in southern syria. and jordan for jordan to open the border but at the same time jordan is saying that we need support for
4:32 pm
buggiest on the same has been not there for a for a long time and instead there is a recent list at issue of pakistan for in f. eighty s. financial action task force all these things did not co-exist and pakistan continues to take the responsibility that is due to it on the name of neighborhood and humanity but then washington which needs support continues to press islamabad against the wall yet so pakistan you know has taken and great number of afghan refugees obviously more than anyone else and you're saying that it has not received the international support that it needed to do so this to say that let me come back to you because you were actually an afghan refugee in pakistan so what was your experience of that but also of returning to afghanistan did you have the support you needed when you returned. thank you well i lived in pakistan as
4:33 pm
a refugee camp for about fourteen years and i grew up there i had my primary and secondary schooling there. we lived in a mad house and in a difficult situation but we thought that how life was we didn't know how difficult life our situation was that now we knew we were in difficult but at the time we thought that wasn't normal life for everyone the time we were returning after the fall of taliban in two thousand and three. we thought in pakistan but we are taking a very difficult decision and we are going to a place specially for me that i had never been before to a couple so when we came in the beginning it was a bit difficult to adjust but soon soon after we realized that our parents had taken a very positive decision and when i asked that's about all of the thing is saying that school parent then it was their decision then it was voluntary.
4:34 pm
it was a it was a voluntary decision that we left because i got it camp in pakistan which sure as soon was build those later but our immigration to pakistan was forced then and there was but the returning was of course of voluntary the time comparing a plan is of two thousand and three with two thousand and eighteen it's quite different in an situation has improved in terms of infrastructure or economy or job in and other terms and at the time we thought it was the sort of the life was difficult in the beginning in the few months but later on we were very happy with our decision and right now we're going to look to look back at the past years that have lived in afghanistan and of their progeny of these that we have grabbed and used i think we couldn't do that in pakistan so there are such opportunities for
4:35 pm
the refugees in their attorneys who are coming back they're not available in pakistan for them but if they come here. they can utilize them in using for great mr katter how many of the refugees who return have an experience that similar to this to say that switch was positive because the un says that. returns have to be voluntary safe and dignified but is that often the case. those first ernst's to be good and well managed yes they do need to be safe voluntary and dignified and every every refugee registered or not in pakistan has a right to it out of their own free will and we are it's support that along with other agencies but. what it was unclear or clear in two thousand and sixteen when we saw six hundred thousand refugees come back very suddenly. the course of
4:36 pm
four or five months. many hadn't been prepared many were not very well informed about the conditions they were returning to so it's these are standards which we have to to uphold and encourage the governments of pakistan to make sure happens and it's as the voluntary or patch ration process is a very sensitive one that needs to be done with enough time for people to make informed decisions some of those people who return many years ago this was. a process which they've been very happy with but we have to make sure that when tempers run high and patients runs thin that we can still support refugees to make an informed decision to come back and ideally to an area where it's safe and where they have access to basic services but that is the opposite of what i saw and what we saw when we were in eastern afghanistan two years ago it's in thousands of
4:37 pm
families living in open shelter or no shelter conditions overcrowding and unfinished buildings i saw. children sleeping in the mud next to livestock heavily pregnant women feeling suddenly forced to return at this point some of them giving birth. in the few days of having returned so there have been instances in the past which we hope are not repeated in which this was a less than ideal scenario but we are hopeful that back in. the nick of minutes will continue to show its its mercy and reprieve for afghan refugees to stay as long as they need to particularly whilst still it says have not ceased in afghanistan mr ahmed the time in the incidents that mr carter is talking about two years ago was when tensions and tempers were running high following deadly attacks in pakistan and both you and mr so that have spoken about how afghan refugees have
4:38 pm
been used as a political tool between these two countries how can you make sure that this doesn't happen again. there is a roadmap there could be this is not a new situation if you have been the better at it from various parts of the world and that is that there is a method to do it the issue is that how do you can take it as it is that a roadmap on the afghanistan stable and how it managed one wants to get it implemented on its site if one government gives losing security of its districts and districts keep falling today short taliban every now and then in a month like three to four how would that framework be implemented so the primary question is is safe enough for any refused to come back and the second to question is that whether pakistan is financially is strong enough to deal with the presence of so many people who are not paying taxes who are burden on resources who have
4:39 pm
contributed to economy as well but not to the extent as they would have had they been citizens and well equipped so there is there is a minute of questions that need to be addressed it's not just as simple that they are being politicized there are genuine concerns which are remanent from security economy and of course humanitarian concern that they will be killed or recruited by delhi barn and they should once they cross the border line so all and above all whole of government reacts to it by this time is it is it speaking the language of india which it has been. sons intelligence agency has been using of on the pakistani side for political purposes by launching a movement against the military or. political parties there are these delicate issues that need to be understood and confidence level what the past six months or so has really it isn't there is a track active track to diplomacy going on and i hope there will be a way out and
4:40 pm
a framework that could be debated publicly and also within the government and this is about what do you make of all of those concerns coming from the pakistani side are they being addressed adequately by the government of honest. well let me make a comment here that first if we look at the security situation in afghanistan it's not ideal but that does not mean that of the didn't should stop because of the security situation if the security situation is so workers fan the people who are currently living in evanston should also go somewhere else what we are more concerned in afghanistan about returns is the economic situation and the integration in the society here. security would be the same for all and we have hope and peace wilkinson in and there is life in afghanistan the business sense and kind of so much is going on so security shouldn't be the main or the major
4:41 pm
reason for them of not returning there is another economic problems and we should be focusing on that so the government of afghanistan or not on the government of afghanistan but all stakeholders in the refugee situation have their own responsibilities when they have to perform them. starting from atlanta stand they have to look into different categories of refugees in afghanistan for example those who have established businesses in pakistan and in the good life that they can come easily in a just one son's life or they have they should have a smooth transition for their companies in factories into afghanistan or those skilled laborers that we have in pakistan governor futures in packs and they can come to afghanistan and they can have decent lives in afghanistan too or could be exported as a labor skilled laborers to the middle east countries apart from that those afghans living in pakistan who have their family members abroad in wiston countries or in
4:42 pm
the middle east can have decent lives in afghanistan without any problem similarly that of afghans who are working in afghanistan but their families still live in pakistan afghanistan should promote in and ask them to bring their families back to when it's. now the remains the people who. have a difficult life living in pakistan they have very limited means of life there then that's difficult for ivan government to adjust yeah so our government should think about policies implementing policies for their housing and for their placement in afghanistan mr carter everything that we've spoken about requires a lot of support and a lot of finance as well international organizations of the international community doing everything it can to support these millions of people. in afghanistan there is quite a well established humanitarian and developments community here which is working on
4:43 pm
this issue. really it's up to us to supports in this respect the government to be able to increase the absorptive capacity of service delivery so that health facilities educational facilities don't get overwhelmed with this but also some of the the longer term issues that would help people not just come back and survive but hopefully thrive so for example looking at who where people can live and looking at access to jobs from this side of the border the incest currency is present it is difficult to work but we are committed to. we're working with the governments to help increase this capacity for longer term solution but the government really needs more more time we need to be more patient with it it's got . elections coming up it's got. his friends rebuilds
4:44 pm
a lot of it states institutions and there's multiple emergencies internally affecting that afghanistan has it is an emerging droughts so it is internal displacement in the don't have very long left of the program and i just like to pick up on something that you mentioned which is a long term solution and put that to both of our guests quickly before we end how do you find a long term solution because these sort of ad hoc extensions and unpredictability extending their stay for one to three to six months is not sustainable mr sutton start with you before going to mr ackerman. and so so because of course the current situation of refugees effects and shouldn't be dealt as an emergency situation a long term solutions that are very important and then how do we do that so as i mentioned before the categorization of different refugees in return is that how do you just easily later on there should be policies in programs for example that to
4:45 pm

is gone. donald trump wasn't home to hear them the people in the park didn't care. they are outraged by the video and photos of some twenty three hundred children including babies caged like animals in detention centers and by the fact the government doesn't know where their parents are being held to a lot of data. that we don't know that we need from the top administration but they've got a list of parents apparently they've got a list of children they've got to be reconciled we need to know where every parent is that matches up with every child and they've got to tell us that in a publicly accountable manner and i don't think they're going to feel compelled to do that unless there's public pressure even though the trumpet ministration vocal to public pressure and stop the forced separation of children from parents at the us mexico border it's now going to detain entire families perhaps indefinitely

perhaps and military reservations across the us that has rarely go as here in washington fed up and that's the sentiment being repeated at rallies across the united states the signs in the messages were the same across the country obey international asylum law protect children stop the government's racist policies honestly the only reason our president is doing this is because of his ego he has no excuse these people are bad people they are running away from their homes and take a lot in must be big to make them do that will be accomplished some sort of change in the policy that we have. really need our legislators to actually get something accomplished the challenge is taking the white hot anger on a hot summer's day and turning it into political action there's no guarantee people will do more than this even though they say they will rosalynn jordan al-jazeera washington. g. is a professor of social work at the university of michigan and intended to keep families

together march she says the president has altered course once before as a result of public pressure the protests that have been taking place all over the country for the past few weeks have already begun to have an impact in the sense that president trump did sign an executive order to stop separating families at the border now with this order he has not stopped detention so the current zero enforcement policy required that separate parents and children and they were detained in separate places their current executive order says we're still going to keep doing what we're doing we're still going to have the zero tolerance policy but now we're going to detain them together and so i don't think that you'll see the protests stopping because of this particular change in the policy

a school that collapsed during last september's earthquake here in mexico city and these little angels represent the nineteen children who were crushed to death when a structure that was built illegally by the school's owner fell on top of them as he had apparently paid off local officials to turn a blind eye to the building code the victim's parents say that they died not because of the earthquake but because of corruption a phenomenon that is spreading like a disease throughout mexico impacting almost every aspect of life. which is why confronting crime violence and the widespread corruption that makes those things possible are the main issues for tens of millions of mexicans as they choose a new president. one has to pay the criminal so they'd let you work in peace sometimes it's the police that bribes corruption is everywhere. against corruption and impunity says the corruption costs the poorest thirty five
