8:09 am
into what's already a saturated area here so flooding is definitely going to be an issue you know new orleans below sea level it's a bowl and once that water gets in the bowl getting it out is very difficult as well as a preparation is that people themselves are making j what is stated the local government what are the authorities trying to do there. and some of the low lying parishes there are mandatory evacuations in place and really they've been continuing today there are some other places where they've added evacuations during the day as the storm moved the end limit of it and knew all and proper there is no evacuation order in place what they're telling people is to shelter in place and that's an order that takes effect for the 2nd night in a row at 8 o'clock this evening so while there are a few people out on the streets not what you would normally see but a few people out it should clear out dramatically once we get to that time in a few hours here they're also telling people make sure you have plenty of food the

8:14 am
parts of somalia but in recent years it's been rare in the town of kids. but it's widely believed to be connected to an upcoming election which is meant to take place there in august the time of the attack it was a political gathering going on inside the hotel elders plan representatives and legislators were meeting in preparation for that election and the armed group al shabaab have taken responsibility for the attack what's not clear is if it was an attempt to disrupt the electoral process generally or specific candidates who are politicians were being targeted turkey has received a 2nd shipment of s. $400.00 missiles from russia more shipments are expected over the next few days in defiance of a warning from the united states turkish pilots are no longer being trained to fly america's f. 35 warplanes and the pentagon is threatening to cancel turkey's orders for the fighter jets so of course we all know has the latest from istanbul. the delivery of

8:16 am
based on the meetings the of presidents are done and president donald trump buy back in last month and during the g 20 summit it turkey believes that it has promised not to impose sanctions but of course time will show whether trump will be able to persuade his congress in order to stop these sanctions still ahead and how does it or immigration raids planned in cities across the u.s. but is announcing them in advance the best way to find and deport people there illegally. i'm so far so we poor thing from what used to be the i will see in cattle top box down in the bakery stand where the government is trying to bring life back into the desert. and things could be closer between the more cities drivers at silverstone free to stop the action from qualifying.
8:17 am
hello again well tropical storm barry has made landfall here in louisiana and it's going to be bring still some very heavy rain across much of the region we're going to be seeing louisiana mississippi arkansas into parts of tennessee as well under flood risk over the next few days now the satellite you can see it when the system made landfall but take a look at the rain here across the region i just mentioned so the flood warnings are going to be affecting millions in this area and if you remember much of this area is still saturated and the flooding is going to come very easily across many regions so for sunday rain here across much of the southeast as we go towards monday the storm actually begins to dissipate but the rain with it will continue across much of this area and slowly make its way towards the north out here towards the northeast so looking quite nice for boston in new york with the temps there about 29 degrees where heavy rain is going to be a big problem here across parts of central america over the next few days and that rain is going to lead to some localized flooding anywhere from panama up here
8:18 am
towards course trick as well we do think it's going to be expanding as we go towards monday really here across parts of nicaragua as well as into guatemala mexico city expect to see a partly cloudy day with a temper there of $22.00 degrees and then rain here is going to be a problem across much of southern brazil with a temper for rio at about 29. information indicates that you have or associates or again that is the least of our data has the potential to be biased in a number of different ways there are too many opportunities for the computer to get or all who's checking those offices who commit those data entry is wrong to be saying that your son the shinai is wrong to. kill of becoming a suspect before the actual crime and in-depth examination into preventative policing pre-crime on al-jazeera water an essential resource for all
8:19 am
humankind across europe pressure to recognise water as a human right and put its management back into public hands is increasing i think that the european commission would be very very shameful this was a problem with us is should anybody say anything. those people who see every 2 years something to invest a profit of a $1.00. to the last drop on al-jazeera. a large amount is it a reminder of our top stories this hour tens of thousands of protesters have demonstrated across the down to mark 40 days since
8:20 am
a crackdown by security forces calling for an independent investigation into the killing of more than 100 protesters on june the 3rd there been scuffles in hong kong between police and protesters angry over the presence of traitors and shoppers from mainland china are accused of driving up prices by bulk buying taxpaying products to take home and sell. tropical storm barry has made landfall in the u.s. state of louisiana the storms caused major power outages as it hit enter coastal city officials have warned of disastrous flooding across the gulf coast. an operation to raid the homes of hundreds of undocumented migrants is due to begin across time that u.s. cities on sunday protests against the mass raids have been held in philadelphia and other cities the operation is expected to target families who've recently been told to leave the u.s. but haven't left president donald trump announced plans for the raids on twitter last month but they were delayed partly because of disagreements within the
8:21 am
administration. there was. every time the laws become stricter it makes it all the more difficult it causes a path it's more repression with the law but as human beings we go on coming up with ways to survive in this country and i say survive in this country because we a persecution that imagine how we are in our home countries. for us as the children of migrants we're scared to. hear a knock on the door because we think that it can be we can take our parents. for example when going to hear someone not going to door i tell my sister be quiet we can't make noise because then don't think that somebody is inside house and we don't we don't want anything to happen and we live with this fear day by day and we just we just wanted to stop. spawn's us from the san francisco immigrant and
8:22 am
legal education that work and she says people need to be aware of their rights. today i says operations are a lot more covert they conduct extensive surveillance and we outside of people's homes and wait for them to come out or to let people open the door and let them inside and then conduct collateral arrests. and that is why people need to be prepared and know that they do not have to open the door they do not have to let ice officers inside they do not. have to give any information other than their name if they are arrested and stephen hodge as an advisor to the donald trump for president joining the 2016 presidential campaigns joining us live from nutley in new jersey thank you very much indeed for your time so thank you for being with us . given the fact that one would assume as an outsider that the effectiveness of raids like this would actually be increased if you didn't really tell anybody that
8:23 am
they were going to happen until a very short time before they were due to happen why do you think donald trump made the announcement so far in advance. there were 2 reasons reason number one is he made this announcement 4 in advance to give those on their court order to leave the country to turn themselves in to turn themselves into ice and for ice to enforce that court order keep in mind that these are not random raids in fact they're not raids at all nobody's going to be banging doors down and dragon people out of their homes these are apprehensions of individuals who are under court order if they wait they went through a legal process for the importation secondly he gave the congress of the united states advance notice he was going to do this so that they would finally get on the ball and do their job and start real good honest immigration reform proudly they are not doing that so these apprehensions will begin on sunday and let's see what
8:24 am
happens where we go from there we had the representative from the san francisco immigrant and legal education network that is saying that people don't have to open the door they don't have to let ice officers inside they don't have to give any information except the name if they were arrested how much of a hindrance is that going to be to the ice teams that are going in there trying to carry out this operation. well it's going to be a hinderance and as i said nobody's going to break doors down to drag people out if they don't answer doors tomorrow or sunday or whatever they're going to go and they'll be back so it's best that people obey the law and that's what this is all about we have laws in this country that need to be obeyed there will be no collateral arrest by the way as was mentioned earlier and one of your segments the fact that a matter is that these are targeted not random apprehensions so if people on answered or i'm sure ice will walk away and come back another day in terms of
8:25 am
processing the individuals who are arrested during these operations. has enough time do you think been allowed to that process to to be carried out effectively and also transparently because of course we have to remember that in the past ice is reputation has suffered. and it would be in its interests to make sure that these made these operations i should say carried out as effectively but as openly as possible well i'm sure that these individuals will once again before a judge it will be done quickly because there is a court order in effect they are in violation of the law in violation of the court order but as i said no one is going to be herded off into a camp or put on a plane or a bus mediately i'm sure that there's going to be a an orderly process to make sure they have the right individuals and then they'll
8:26 am
be deported president tom made and made it a key element of his campaign that the immigration issue at the border was should be a focus do you think that this is a distraction from that should he not be focusing on the situation at the border as opposed to carrying out operations like this. well he is focused on the border very very focused as i'm sure you're well aware that the mexican government actually deployed thousands of troops on their southern border to keep the immigrants from southern countries from from mexico to immigrate into their country and eventually into the united states secondly he has proposed before congress to get the money he needs in order to secure the border and that would be the border wall and the other entries into the united states so he's been focused on that this is not a distraction this is part of his entire plan to take control of the problems that
8:27 am
