states millions more who support the president's attacks can really help at al-jazeera the white house jennifer perle see them as the cool friends are over republican women for progress she blamed the republican leadership for lesson donald trump go this far. this is no surprise republicans have been constantly tested under this administration and they consistently fail when it comes to leadership issues like this what's worse than their typical silence on trump's davis' defense of language is how they're trying to victim blame here and how they're trying to talk about how these women they don't agree with their political positions but you know this doesn't rise to racism or you know they're silent or like lindsey graham they're doubling down on this type of rhetoric you know as a republican it is despicable to me it is shameful and i am ashamed of our republican leaders and our republican leadership that they have let this go on for
8:06 am
so long and created this environment where donald trump continues to feel like he can create that he can treat american citizens like this so our hope is that we can get more elected officials who can actually serve the people why republicans like us and republicans for progress why we keep speaking out as we don't want to lose the party to racists like this we don't want to lose the party to donald trump and we want to take back that party and create a new party that can actually stand up for immigrant stand up for people of color and women and minorities and you know we just aren't seeing that with our current public and leadership and led by donald trump because they are owning all of the racism donald trump has brought to america. the u.s. has announced a few asylum rules which seem to stem the flow of migrants crossing the us mexico border the rule goes into effect so in choose stay bonuses expected to be
8:07 am
challenged in court the plan bloats migrants seeking asylum in the united states if they have traveled through another safe country 1st without applying for asylum there whatever those who have been trafficked will be excluded from the new rules are likely to affect central american family. he's in trouble through mexico to seek asylum in the united states the announcement comes as a court and guatemala bloke's president jim morales from signing a separate deal with the u.s. that would have designated the nation as a safe 3rd country mexico has also rejected the new u.s. measurements menorah polo has the reaction from mexico city there was pushback in mexico in response to that change in policy announced by the united states the asylum laws and i'll give you we need to talk about the context here if you were a migrant traveling from central america say hunter a sort of solved or making your way through guatemala and through mexico that automatically disqualifies you from being able to seek asylum in the united states
8:08 am
under this new policy now there's a reason why there's so much pushback here in mexico on one end mexico the united states have no agreement that would force mexico to house asylum seekers that's something that mexico would have to ratify via legislation it would be up to the mexican congress to determine that mexico is to be designated a quote unquote safe 3rd country without approval from congress mexico is in no way obligated to adopt or accommodate to this new change in policy in the united states this is something that the foreign minister of mexico my sent abroad has said is not going to happen the foreign minister has also said that he does not agree with this decision by the united states and and in no way will mexico be changing its own immigration policies or its own asylum policies to accommodate for this new change in the united states furthermore this is one aspect of the migrant crisis that keeps getting brought up in this stemming the flow of migrants it being up to mexico to stem the flow of migrants that's the pressure that the united states has
8:09 am
on mexico yet these policies do nothing to address the root causes of migration in central america countries like honduras guatemala as well as a salvator which are rampant political corruption. widespread poverty and of course the high levels of violence plaguing these countries. the lower price of the u.s. congress has passed see bills on saudi arabia condemning human rights abuses and seeking accountability for the murder of saudi journalist jamal khashoggi it's also criticized riyadh for detaining female human rights activists that has received an overwhelming $405.00 to $7.00 votes bonce despite a strong bipartisan backing the measures may be challenged in the republican dominated senates now is the time to make clear that reckless behavior whether the murder of an american resident or the kidnapping of the lebanese prime minister or the blockade of cutter carry a price that the men who rule saudi arabia need to take our interests and values
8:10 am
into account rather than always counting on us to cover up for them gabriel amazones who has more from washington d.c. . this was the saudi arabia human rights and accountability bill and it sought to do just that as you mention seek accountability for the murder of washington post journalist jamal khashoggi overwhelmingly passed monday night house of representatives 405 lawmakers 4 it only 7 against it it has 3 key components number one the bill asked that the director of national intelligence dan coats provide answers to a series of very simple questions who planned ordered executed and then covered up the murder of a that's number one it's important to note that already the central and terror teligent say agency or cia in the u.s. has already identified saudi crown prince mohammed bin solomon as the one that ordered the murder of khashoggi but number 2 the 2nd part of this bill is that
8:11 am
anyone then identified by the director of national intelligence as being part of in any way the murder of a show he would then be sanctioned by the u.s. have their visa or ability to travel to the u.s. then revoked again already 17 saudis directly associated with the show she's murder are already sanctioned and and that those are the key elements of this bill john jones is a former senate snuffle security threats around former senior congressional advisor he says overall the u.s. government is happy with citing arabia. right now this is basically a strike across the bow from the house of representatives to basically put them on record on where they stand in terms of u.s. saudi relations especially speaking and declaring their position as it pertains to the human rights situation and saudi arabia as well as the u.s. response at least from the legislator as it pertains to the murder of jamal
8:12 am
khashoggi but as we look ahead it is rather unlikely that the republican dominated senate is going to take up this issue in the near term some would say that again the administration is perfectly happy with the u.s. saudi relationship as it stands from economic point of view a security point of view or even as you look at the larger our relationship in terms of maintaining u.s. interest in the middle east region on the other hand you have those that will say look at the end of the day saudi arabia has opened up now there are steps that they have taken in terms of human rights have been incremental but they have been short and small positive steps so there are those that feel that it's better to continue to engage with saudi arabia rather than saying shit and push them away turkey

this is on to see a quick reminder of the top stories this hour for us democratic congress women say they will not species silenced by president donald trump in responding to his comments that they are anti american and his call for them to go back home. mexico and guatemala have rejected new u.s. measures aimed at stopping more immigrants seeking asylum the new rules require migrants to request safe haven in other countries on the way to the u.s. and a little higher is some of the u.s. congress has passed 2 bills on saudi arabia they condemn human rights abuses and seek accountability the murder of journalist tamara shoji but the measures could be challenged in the republican controlled senate. and the iranian foreign minister

8:18 am
still alive on a cane reports now from brussels. for more than a year the e.u. has trying to preserve the nuclear agreement with iran devising schemes to help the tech run government reduce the impact of u.s. sanctions but now that deal is in danger like never before we are looking to find a way to preserve the nuclear deal which we think is the best way of keeping the middle east as a whole nuclear weapon free. iran is still a good year away from developing a nuclear weapon we think there are still some closing thoughts more window to keep the deal alive one of the brokers of the original deal known as the j c peer a is clear about what must happen next we want to see iran going back to full compliance at is that has been in this in these years. but we notice that technically all the steps that have been taken and that we regret having taken are reversible so we
8:19 am
hope and we invite you to reverse the steps and go back to full compliance with the agreements but how much sway do european voices have although the strength of feeling here in brussels is pretty clear no amount of words from the e.u. alone can compel the u.s. and iranian government's to negotiate with each other for that to happen there has to be a willingness on both sides to give ground and on that the view from the government into is clear. when a big power that is a bully well then we have to stand up to it it must stop being a bully we have always believed in talks always right this hour right this moment if they stop the oppression they stop the belligerence if they lift sanctions return to the table return to logic we are ready so iran denounces the current us administration while maintaining its commitment to the nuclear deal it negotiated with the previous one and yet iran is also operating outside the terms of that deal in some areas for several weeks iranian your anian enrichment has exceeded agreed
8:20 am
limits. all of which has emboldened the trump administration with the u.s. president recently warning officials in tehran they were treading on very dangerous territory which means that on the face of it this meeting on its own risks achieving little and over while iran is technically in breach of its commitments under the nuclear agreement dominic a al-jazeera brussels. former south african president jacob zuma is expected back at say state commission hearing on government corruption in the coming few hours on monday zuma told the inquiry that enemies plotted against him he maintains he never broke the law of the group says while the indian family implicated in an influence peddling scandal has more from johannesburg. this doesn't happen often in africa a former leader appearing before a corruption inquiry more than
