8:04 pm
members of their immediate families. now only a small percentage of these people have been able to apply for the special immigrant visa and have been able to work through some of the process for getting permission to come to the united states. but obviously because of the pan demik, that process really has ground to a halt. there has been a lot of concern, as you pointed out here in washington, not just from politicians, but also from the afghan war veterans who say that these people basically helped them stay alive while they were deployed in afghanistan to make certain that these people can be evacuated as quickly as possible. there is a documented fear among many of the interpreters and their families, that the tall about or some other group might try to kill them. because the tall a bond has called these interpreters traders in the past. now we don't know exactly
8:05 pm
how this process is going to work out because perhaps as many as 2 thirds of the people who worked as interpreters don't live in cobble. and there's also the question of how the us government is actually going to move people out of the country. because most of the us military, except for those acting as security personnel for the us embassy, have loved the country. they don't have control of afghan military bases anymore. so all of these logistics still have to be worked out. and it is worth pointing out that the u. s. government doesn't really want to get into those kinds of details anyway. for security reasons, they don't want anything to happen to these people during the upcoming evacuation process. thanks very much, ross jordan, they're talking to live out of washington. well thing in that region, china, on to investigate a blast on board above the killed at least 13 people including 9 chinese national

8:16 pm
vote on the bill. it's called the quorum color harris praise the move, comparing them to civil rights activists, while texas republicans, according to their arrest republican state politicians around the country have imposed, are or are trying to impose a variety of restrictions on voting rights. in the 1st 6 months of this year, 17 states, most of them republican lead inactive new laws, restricting access to the vote. those include changes to the rules for mailing voting and 12 states, making it harder for people to cast ballots that way and at least 8 state 70 use laws, making it harder to vote in person of those 3 brought in new or harsher voter id requirements. and that could be more around 60, more bills are still in process in 18, state legislatures, republican say, all this is needed to fight election fraud, but there's almost no evidence that fraud actually exists. and democrats say the
8:17 pm
real purpose is to keep people who usually vote for them away from the polls. a sweeping election reform bill that would have blocked many state level restrictions pass. the u. s. has in march senate republicans blocked it with a filibuster. let's talk out to royce west. he's a democrat state senator from the us state of texas, who along with dozens of his colleagues, met the vice president on tuesday. he joins us from washington. welcome to al jazeera. so you've had good words from the likes of chuck schumer and the vice president commer harris. but beyond that, what, what else can you get? well, we have a president that is committed to make certain that elections voting is accessible to every american. he understands. exactly what's going on in this country, as you said, the 17 states that have passed harsh laws to suppress the vote. and there's another
8:18 pm
team that's attempting to do so. so that's a national issue. i'm glad to have a president that's committed to doing everything in his power in order to get something. yes, but mister west, what can you realistically achieve? you are also there talking to your political colleagues in congress. congress had, does not have the power to do anything. the congress does have a power right now. they don't have the means in order to get it done. we're going to have to prevail upon and make certain that democrats and the senate understand that we're on bar time in texas right now. okay. and if they fail to act, then obviously they may very well end up with age or county and voting bills. that is acceptable and repressive and suppressive to persons in the state of texas . be they ever met already be may disable be they elderly persons. okay. what is draconian about when somebody goes to cast a vote either at
8:19 pm
a general election or just at a congressional election? what is draconian about asking someone to show documentary evidence that tallies up who they say they are with who they actually are on paper e, they've got to show the last 4 digits of their social security numbers, because surely that protect the democratic process, it doesn't impinge on it or damage it. okay, let me say this 2 things and i'm, i want, i want to respond to your question. so let me give you a predicate for the reality is, is that we've had a attorney general for trump basically say that was most secure election that we've ever had. history, that simple one at the federal level. and at the state level, we had a secretary of state who was nominated by the current governor to be secretary state, be cheap administrator of the elections. she said the same thing. ironically,
8:20 pm
her nomination was ever called up by republicans and the state of texas. using that as the predicate, there is no issue of fraud or false identification of persons coming to the polling places in order to vote. therefore, if there is no issues based on the current id laws that we have in the state of texas, why do we need additional ones? your own legislature has just voted by a massive majority of republicans in your legislature. have just voted to actually arrest you. when and or if, when i assume you go back, not the time lining of this is significant, isn't it? because you've got to stay away from austin, texas for 30 days. you've got another 26 days. you've got to stay away for in effect. what happens if you go back and you are arrested?
8:21 pm
let me make certain that i explained to your listening audience. you have a state house, you have a state senate, i'm in the state senate. the state senate is not under a court issue. we don't have a crime issue right now, so i'm just absent from the center today. you are correct that if our members go back, they can be a rest of them to take him to the state capital. and i wanted to help assure a, a corner outside of the state of texas. there is no power to arrest members of the state house. just there's just no go. so again, this is just a hollow p r. stand. that obviously must be followed, must must be gabbled through by the speaker of the house, just in case someone is going to be stupid enough to go back to the thing that's, that's to be arrested. but i can assure you that we have very intelligent house
8:22 pm
members that are working their butts off excuse expression in order to try to make certain that we have free, inaccessible opportunities to vote and in this country. very brief, very, very briefly, mr. west, what do you say to your fellow texans who say, usa being on texan, you are now going to be known as the runaway politicians, and you're being untaxed. and because you've run away from a fight, you've taken the fight someplace else. well, let me say this to those that would say that i would say to you that you should make certain of the persons that you support a persons that are willing to sit down and try to come to a resolution of this issue as opposed to try to make certain that democrats have to just kind of buckle down and count down and not use the parliament refills at our disposal in order to make certain we represent people in the state of texas. mister royce, west, the democratic state, senator from the state of texas. great to talk to you. so thank you so much for
8:23 pm
coming on. we do appreciate it. take care. thank you. racism bye football fans in the u. k. could soon be punishable by law. the u. k prime minister bar is johnson told the parliament today, fans who make races, comments online, could be issued match bands while social media companies would be fine if they don't from the hate speech. it follows the racist abuse towards 3 england players in the euro. 2020 final the trio had missed penalties in the shootout defeat to italy right after the condemn and of all the i race the start pouring that we saw on sunday night. and so what we do is today taking practical steps to ensure that the football batting order regime is changed so that if you are guilty to speak of racist abuse on line, was that you will not be going to the match. know if you say, well i london correspondence that involved with more on the prime minister's
8:24 pm
comments today. he was asked by the leader of the opposition care stomach about the online abuse. following the final, you just heard him suggesting the football binding orders, stopping people from going to matches could be extended to individuals who commit online abuse. these orders can last for up to 10 years. but before that, he said that he'd been meeting in the last few days, representatives of social media companies like twitter, facebook, and take talk and so on, making it clear to them that they had to do more to get rid of abuse on their platforms and saying that the government was bringing in legislation looking to bring in legislation under a new bill, which could find those companies 10 percent of their profits if they don't do enough care. stone, the opposition leader said, well, you are taking your time. it's too slow. that legislation, he also been brought up the subject of the england team taking the knee. and he
8:25 pm
mentioned comments by boris johnson through his spokesman before the tournament saying that funds defending the right of funds to be the team and comments by pretty battelle, the home secretary, where she actually criticized the bullying, saying it should, sorry, criticized. taking the knee, saying that that shouldn't be happening because it was a political gesture. why is this important? because tyra means an england player came out on monday and said those comments by the prime minister in the home secretary feuds, racism. they encouraged people who are likely to go online and give racist abuse to black players. to do that, the government is firmly pushing back against this idea. but case dom and knows that seemingly public opinion is quite strongly behind the players, particularly following the abuse that they've received. minima is reporting a record number of cobit 19 deaths. 145 people have died in 24 hours with more than
8:26 pm
7000 new infections. experts say testing rates are low and the true figure is likely to be much, much higher. the countries facing a serious shortage of oxygen people have been queueing overnight for refills risking arrests for staying out past the curfew. imposed by the military gentle jonathan. there is no way my sister would have died if we had enough oxygen. we were trying to buy oxygen with double prices, but we couldn't get any. even though we have oxygen cylinders, we could manage to get them refilled in time. to move the military governments health care system response and handling of covered 19 is so wrong, it's getting worse and there's no hope. it's 4 to 5 times the number of deaths during the 1st. and 2nd, waves have covered 19 well, in our last we were joined by san ramon from the center for public health and human rights, johns hopkins university. she explained how mistrust in the junker is worsening. the crisis. the medical picture is very bleak. currently, there is
8:27 pm
a lot of panic within society, and while the military hunter is accusing a lot of civilians for hoarding oxygen amidst shortage and inciting, more panic, we have to come to terms with the fact that this panic in this environment was sewed by the military and if you have a ramification of the mistrust that they established over the last few months since the coo, a lot of people, even if they are not afraid of going to going to affiliated facilities, health facilities, there is still an unfortunate sort of lack of faith in the fact that they would be able to receive timely and like what care their so that's compounding upon the panic and the desperation that's widespread in in miramar right now for the think us not fear mongering. and this is whereas some of my human right. it's comes in this, well, i do not want to incite more fear within society. so i will fall short of seeing the military of what the navy cove it. but certainly the situation of, you know,
8:28 pm
the medical community being at the forefront of anti hunter activities. and now this added layer of the lack of health personnel to adequately treat cases is certainly working to the military's advantage. and we must be vigilant about propaganda that's being circulated within society to incite more fear and more panic in our emergency crews in the united states are battling to contain nearly 60 wildfires burning across 10 western states. thousands of people have been moved from their homes, country lopez for the gun, hasn't more. this wildfire season as breaking records in the us, dozens of fires are raging in western states with more than 340000 hector's burned in recent days. in california, a state known for its many wild wires,
8:29 pm
the amount of land burned has more than tripled since last year. the fire was moving so fast and so hot it was exploding spot fires ahead of it. way ahead of it. like a gunshot. this fire near the arizona utah border is one of the many that's close highways and roads. scientists say severe droughts and the climate crisis are fueling extreme temperatures. the bootleg choir in oregon is the largest blaze, an area twice the size. the city of portland is in flames and is disrupting power transmission lines to california. thousands of people across many states have been evacuated. we got out in time. i looked in my rear view mirror, and the flames passed over the road and headed down my driveway. and burned both sides of my property in oregon, he related deaths are also on the rise. many have died alone in their homes,
8:30 pm
with temperatures reaching $46.00 degrees over the last year. we have prepared for a search and just because it could be 19 and a year ago we were just emerging from restrictions. and honestly, it never crossed my mind than that we would be a wave of dust from heat as we have these last few weeks. the extreme conditions pose yet another challenge for emergency crews. we have to be very careful about we where we insert cruise to make sure they don't get trapped and would fires burning across several states. concerns are growing as the fire season isn't over yet. katia lopez was a young al jazeera ah recapping itself. so i so thought today the afghan taliban says it sees control that the spin bolduc border crossing with pakistan. but the african government is denying the groups claims. it says his forces were.
