himself to the bbc in 2010. yes. we're a publisher. this totally surprise decision, we accept information while popular with some republican supporters, immediately brought from whistle—blowers. legal challenges from human rights campaigners. we vet it, we analyse it and we publish it and that's but a us supreme court vote decided what we do. injanuary that a version of it should be put in place. but the american charge sheet now in 15 seconds, here is how the ban applies. against him suggests he did more you can'tjoin if you've than just accept and publish. transitioned or want to transition, which effectively bans trans people from joining. it accuses him of requesting no—one serving will be allowed to come forward to transition information from chelsea manning, unless they started the process before the ban. the us intelligence analyst, they will now only be allowed and of trying to crack a password himself. to serve in their gender assigned at birth. the department of defense says the new policy doesn't ban transgender people from serving, he's not accused of spying but some campaign groups say or treason, and the maximum sentence in these charges is less the new rules will systematically push transgender people than the time he spent in the embassy. out of the military. but labour believes he's they'll have to choose between being themselves and serving being pursued for political reasons. their country. i think there may be human rights issues in relation to assange. now president trump has said one he is, at the very least, a whistle—blower and much of the main reasons for this ban of the information that he brought is the "tremendous medical costs." into the public domain, it could be argued, was very much in the public interest. but as you will see, but wikilea ks leaked the cost might not be hillary clinton's emails the whole story.
and she wants him charged. here come the numbers. according to the pentagon, it's not about punishing journalism. over the past three years it's about assisting the hacking the us military has spent about $8 of the military computer to steal million on transgender care. information from the united states the military‘s annual government, but the bottom line is, healthcare budget he has to answer for what he has tops $50 billion. in 2017, the total cost of care related to transitioning was just done, at least as it's been charged. over $2 million. which was far less than 1% he has nine weeks to prepare his of the military‘s annual case against extradition. healthcare budget. and that's around one 20th tom symonds, bbc news. of what the military spent on viagra in a single year. forgetting about the cost of healthca re, hundreds of transgender troops have deployed to combat zones, and top military let's get some of bosses have unanimously stated that the day's other news. having transgender the world health organisation says it fears outbreaks of infectious people service people diseases in libya as thousands flee having tra nsgender service people has had no impact on cohesion, fighting around tripoli. and the american medical association has also said there is no valid the un healthy agency says it's medical reason for the ban. concerned about tuberculosis, president trump's change measles and diarrhoea on transgender rights due to poor sanitation, is very different to policies especially among those who are displaced. in other countries. the libyan national army tra nsgender troops can serve of khalifa haftar advanced in at least 18 other nations, on the coastal city a week ago including the uk. in the latest conflict since the 2011 overthrow i transitioned about five of dictator muammar gaddafi. years ago i was greeted

rain started coming in. that is why everything looks like cement, and we "racist rhetoric." are not lucky enough to salvage through ourselves. my son said "rip the remarks made on twitter followed a speech mr trump gave earlier in the day, in which he first ?_- through ourselves. my son said "rip ? —— paradise. " it says rest in peace paradise. i think he discussed the plan. understands that we will have to start over. it is really tough. bring the illegal... whatever you call them, i call them illegals, they came across the border illegally. we will bring them to my sanctuary city areas and less that my plan? it is to finish school, particular area take care of it, whether it is a state or whatever it stay in this trailer, i bought it might be, california certainly is a lwa ys might be, california certainly is always saying, we want more people. and, you know, i'm going to learn and they want more people in the from it. and it's going to make me sanctuary cities. well, we will give them more people. we can give them a stronger. i bought the shop back in loss. we can give them an unlimited supply. and let's see if they are so happy. they say they have open arms, 1989, they said if you can make it they are always saying if they have in paradise you can make it open arms, let's see if they have anywhere. so we have made it so far. open arms, let's see if they have open arms. i'm joined now by our washington correspondent chris buckler.
chris, the president's declaration on this seems to have undermined i felt like i could still keep the statements to the contrary by his own white house? are we any clear as to what the flames and the embers at bay. you are saying the embers were the size policy of the administration actually is? yeah, so this idea of of... the size of dinner plates. it really pushing immigrants into sanctuary cities and moving them just never entered my mind that i away from some of the border areas and other places where they are, was in dangeror that has been thought about and just never entered my mind that i was in danger or anything like this. just one of those things you do i talked about inside the guess. we were able to reopen once administration, we understand, for months. it was first talked about in november, when there would —— there we got water and electricity. as we had people coming in i kind of we re november, when there would —— there were these groups of migrants, polled them a bit to find out, will so—called caravans, making their way to the border between mexico and you be coming back? where are you america, and talked about again in february when there was a battle between president trump and the democrats over budgets and, for now? the annoying people that are example, how many detention beds the driving on the street that are immigration and customs enforcement teams would be given. it is now back clogging your town, we would love to on the table. it was first reported go home if we could, and we arejust by the washington post yesterday, but actually, at that stage, the department of homeland security doing the best that we can. under the white house was saying, it is not being considered at the
moment. the president says, there were little miracles that actually, you know what? it is on the table and it is something that happened just finding this house as he wants to push. this all comes about as he continues to make immigration a huge focus and a huge well, with the sellers who sold us this house at a pre— camp fire divide between his republican party under the democrats. and also as he price, not the crazyjacked up looks at a big shakeup within the prices people are paying now. department of homeland security. as you know, the department of homeland security secretary, kristin nelson, you know, we just left herjob you know, wejust feel so blessed, security secretary, kristin nelson, left her job last security secretary, kristin nelson, it is overwhelming. but it is not left herjob last week, and in what seems to be quite a considerable shakeup, in fact, what's inside the administration have been privately over. there are still people, my describing as a purge. given that sanctuary cities tend to be on pa rents a re over. there are still people, my parents are still in trailers. people still need help. democrats control, this seems like a political move rather than one that don't forget you can find more on will actually deal with the issue. the stories we have covered in this is it? i don't think there is any bulletin and plenty of others as well on our website. just go to bbc doubt about it. in terms of the practicalities of this, actually, .com/ news or you can download the there are some within the department of homeland security who are already app. you can also reach us on social worrying about what this could mean. for example, the practicalities of media. moving people to sanctuary cities is something that they don't really
know how they are going to do. would they use buses, which they fly people? where is the money for that coming from? and just how exactly do you choose people to go anywhere? that is a practical consideration of i know all eyes are on the weekend this, but there is also the weather, but you may recognise this forecast more in political, and that comes down to reference to next week. get to that in a moment, the fact that it seems president but first let's take a look at the big trump is trying to use this to weather pattern for the weekend. attack the democrats. for example, you heard him talking about low pressure battling with high california as being potentially one of the destinations for some of pressure, for dominance of the uk's these immigrants. could it, for weather — it is high pressure that wind but keeps us in the blue with a stronger, colder example, be san francisco, which is east south—easterly wind the district represented by the over the weekend. speaker of the house, nancy pelosi, it is high pressure, one of the leading democrats? it is certainly on his mind. she is meaning most of us will stay dry, suggesting that he is definitely bar the odd shower. using people in a —— as a political there will be some decent sunshine around but it is going to be cold pawn in this wider game of for the time of year, particularly in that stronger immigration. thank you, chris wind. gardeners take note, buckler. stay with us on bbc news. still to frosty nights as well. many of us will start come, angerfrom with frost again on saturday stay with us on bbc news. still to come, anger from campaigners stay with us on bbc news. still to come, angerfrom campaigners as stay with us on bbc news. still to come, anger from campaigners as the ban on transgender people in the us military comes into effect. morning, away from the north sea coast and away from most westernmost
