9:16 pm
we've been seeing pretty much all morning is twice land here at the airport. foreign tourists account for over $250000000000.00 a year to the economy of the united states. a lot of that comes right here. the state of new york and new york city primarily where about 13000000 foreign tourists visit new york city every year, but not for the last 2 years during the pandemic. essentially when new york shut down. so this is the 1st time that foreign tours can come back to new york for non essential reasons. and we see people reuniting with loved ones. again, both tourists and people just coming to reunite with loved ones that they haven't been able to see for so. so long, this is also going to be a big boost for the new york city economy. that really is the life for the economy in new york city is tourist, primarily foreign tourists who account for about 50 percent of all the spending.
9:17 pm
and so this is going to be a big boost for as well. listen, there's a lot of bad news in the world, but certainly today at least here at airports and border crossings. certainly lot of good news as people, again re unite with loved ones after so long. net vision was really beautiful to watch. thank you very much, john. gabriel elizondo rather. alright, let's cross now to john hallman, who is on the us. mexico bought a in tijuana, hello there, john. this reopening will provide a much needed boost for small businesses on both sides of the border. yeah, you're absolutely right. especially actually those on the other side of the border in. 3 san diego, sunny sea to rural, those u. s. border communities that use to this cause of people heading over the buddha from tiquana and of a border towns. immense coat. to spend that money over there were for, it's going ahead, dresses out for food, and especially to go clothes, shopping, and shopping in general. right now, be christmas shopping. you'd say people have started to move here. this is the
9:18 pm
busiest border crossing in the western hemisphere. sandy seasonal in tiquana, and before the pandemic, this is what you would see every day, just people going across to do that. things in the united states, very cross border community that hasn't happened for a year and a half. now it started back up again. have a look at what people are saying about like pick one are in our pool. mm. a monday, sunday. see through the biggest lamb border crossing in the western hemisphere. went back to something like normal. the pandemic restrictions u. s. a placed on its southern border with mexico were finally east for international trade that weren't me much met, screws mighty board of factories. the michaela thought us had already been allowed to cross the good since the u. s. for the past year. but it's the so called non essential travelers, mits can locals and tourists who have now been cleared to visit, as long as they're fully vaccinated. in is,
9:19 pm
is one of many and tiquana counting down the days. the 1st thing i'm going to do is cross credit with my kids and they will pretend due to the vaccination for them. it makes the call. we don't have that opportunity. then many people in your family as well. the old friends that have been waiting for the opportunity to cross the border. whatever reason, as well, seeking glad. yes, of course. all of my friends want to go shopping and many people who have family. they want to see them again and have the life we had before. it's really exciting. a california is border businesses will be like to see them again to without limits . can customers hundreds close down during the pandemic. but in tiquana, it's been quite the opposite. restaurants have benefited from americans heading across the dine in the country where restrictions are not strict people. i think we're tired of eating home and they start coming over here to the
9:20 pm
one because they're free to see over here what the now so you and the restaurant twos are hoping the us visitors will keep coming and the locals won't abandon them. now they're free to head to the state. there will be a 50 percent increase in traffic heading across the border. tiquana authorities believe the many waiting on the streets or intent for the chance to cross won't be able to join. that rush is the camp of asylum seekers who want to get into the united states to be easing of the time demick restriction. i'm going to make any difference for them. and it's a reminder, the cove it isn't. the only issue is that there's also migration and it will continue to be so even when the pandemic is long gone, these people are stuck at the only crossing point. the us in p wanna which remains
9:21 pm
closed while the rest of the border gets moving. hey, so this is actually something interesting. what we see behind us is, are the people or the white shirts, or officials from mexico's migration institute, a bit here. wherever information is to chic, but my grants basically all driving cars over to the united states were being cause be driven in the united states mon, claiming of soil of when that go on the other side. so it's just, this is a usual, those amount of migration officials wouldn't usually be on this buddha. so it's just another sign that the complications are supposed of opening up. and as we sit in the piece, the, the, the fact, but even with the pie because long gone, this border is going to be complicated for a long time ahead. no, by migration, the big an issue here. people best brit from latin america and beyond. the want to get to what i see is the probably slab united states. thank you for breaking that down for us in john holman. that live in net towanna. it's bringing charity vance,
9:22 pm
who is on the border crossing in white rock of british columbia. hello, they jodie, how canadians feeling about the bordering company? you know what it is actually a little bit of a giddy experience here at the p search crossing. we are literally at the international boundary between canada and the united states. the p search represented here it's an iconic visual of this western most to mainland and canada land border crossing. and as you can see, there are people lining, there's actually a news crew interviewing a couple on the other side as it cars are headed south for the 1st time for non essential travel to the united states. and they have a sign that says welcome back. friends and people are driving by and, and honking their horns and, and there is a steady flow of traffic. canadians certainly looking forward to being able to head south again to the united states and enjoy that non essential visit to connect with loved ones and friends, or perhaps visit properties south of the border. now, as,
9:23 pm
as mentioned in the other reports today, here with the reopening of the us border crossings. there is that element of economics and the travel to and from and 90 percent of canadians live within a 150 kilometers of this. the longest international land border that is shared with the united states, many, many people travel to the us just for a day trip, just to do some shopping or perhaps fill up the car with inexpensive, inexpensive gasoline going to the united states now double vaccinated. that's all you need to be able to say i am double vaccinated and perhaps show the paperwork to prove it. not necessarily have that in hand going north. however, even returning canadians need to have a p, c, r test the test that can take a day or even to, to get results from that is the very specific scientific test. now that is proving to be worrisome and concerning. and in some instances, unaffordable for canadian,
9:24 pm
certainly those who might go down for a day stressful for travelers and it does hit the wallet, it is in and around $200.00 us to get a p c r test that then must be shown at the border proven to have been taken within 72 hours of arriving at the border crossing and then making it back into canada. so it is a bit of a process still in the canadian government is working on that is we'll see how those logistics unfold. thank you very much, jody vance. live for us at the board of a, in british columbia preliminary results shown nicaraguan president daniel ortega is on track to win a 4th consecutive term in office. the united states has called the election a pantomime. most of the opposition has been barred from running and some members even arrested. a latin america editor, listen human is live for us in costa rica with the latest. hello there, lucia. what's been the reaction to these early results given this election has been
9:25 pm
so widely criticized? absolutely. it has been criticized for on so many levels, including the fact that independent observers and foreign journalists such as ourselves, we're not allowed. we were barred from going into nicaragua to oversee and cover these elections. now the, the preliminary results from the government give president ortega something like 75 percent ah, of what we're having one with 75 percent of the votes. and the question really hasn't been whether he would win the election, but rather whether he had actually seized the election. and that is what we are hearing of from many, many governments around the world who have been quick and very harsh in their, in their, their observations. of these elections, for example, the united states has already not only said that it won't recognize these elections, but also that it will impose stronger sanctions on the ortega government of the
9:26 pm
european union, as said the same latin american countries from chile to here in costa rica have said they will not recognize that government either, but the real question is, what is going to happen next? and how would that impact what is already in increasing flow of migrants outside of nicaragua and increasing i shall lose save, lack of hope that things will change any time in the near future on the part of the nicaraguan people. who, according to the latest gallop poll, oppose daniel ortega, at least 80 percent of the population. and lucille has, have we heard from ortega himself? has he reacted to any of these criticism? yes, he has heated factors. shortly after he voted, he said that the election had been fair, clean democratic. he lashed out at the united states and others whom you say are,
9:27 pm
he says rather are supporting those whom he calls terrorists and that includes the 7, excuse me. we're going up to this gentleman to get out of the way that includes 7 of the most competitive presidential candidates who were imprisoned so that they could not run. now there has been one government that actually to that have been very quick to come. however, to president ortega defense, that is president nicholas my loot of venezuela, which you would have expected, but also the russian government, which earlier today issued a statement by the foreign minister saying that it rejects and condemns the claims by the united states government. that this was election was a hoax. it'll be interesting to see what happens in the coming days and weeks. thank you very much. lucy newman live for us in costa rica. still ahead on al jazeera former us president. barack obama warns of a dangerous lack of urgency in climate tools. we'll have the latest from the summit

9:29 pm
it's fairly fine back down to the 28 and it's still quite warm on 11 time coast as well. well, there is a change coming. watch what happens in the caspian still cold air coming out of western asia. this is really a winter front to get it's been going down going up. it's not really progressing. that's got a strong wind across the caspian, the lowest those likely on the caucasus mountains. and then you'll find snow falling for the cyrus in as by john iran. and there be some thunderstorms, probably of rain may be of hail on the coast, north of iran, and possibly in to run itself west. that all things are quiet as you've already seen. in africa and tropical africa does not that much in the way a shower ballast in, kenny, just a few nor u. d. r congress, but the republic of congo angola, it does look wet. ah . in the vietnam war, the u. s. army used to heidi toxic, had the side with catastrophic consequences. agent orange was the most destructive
9:30 pm
incident chemical warfare. a decade later, the same happened in the us state of oregon. these helicopters flying over the rigs, bringing something they didn't even see the case. the 2 women are still fighting for justice against some of the most powerful forces in the world. the people versus agent orange. one al jazeera who's going to win that is a tough one. to be honest, i'm happy if they're happy, what the drivers know them. and them and they get to make so everyone knows exactly what's happening live and exclusive. that's true. so we could just focus on the weight. ah, as hale sat space to deliver your vision. lou.
