6:02 am
ship is relented. senate democrats will focus on passing, build back better agenda. so we can finally build up ladders of opportunity for people to climb up to the middle class. well, let's take a closer look at the political and economic significance of the circle debt ceiling . this is a limit imposed by congress on the amount of debt the federal government can accumulate. its been set at $28.00 trillion dollars since august. first, analysts say the debt ceiling is important because if the u. s. defaulted on its debts, it would damage the country's credit rating. they say it could also plans the global financial system at a turmoil and possibly lead to a recession. the agreement by senators to raise the debt ceiling until early december, now needs to be passed by the house of representatives. my county has more now from washington, dc. well, a desire to li, crucial. if the u. s. had defaulted on its debt, the economy would have been entail,

6:04 am
which is the deadline. another injection of capital is put in now, to put this into real terms, you are talking about the debt ceiling being at 28.4 trillion. what the senators voted on is to raise that debt ceiling to a $24.00 trillion, just for the government to be able to buy it, pay its debts until december. the 3rd, when the whole thing's going to start again. rescuers have been searching for survivors in southwest pakistan where an earthquake is killed at least 20 people in the strong but shallow tremor has left hundreds injured in baluchistan. hon. a city, the worst it region. it's feared many a buried under the rubble come, i'll hide, it has the latest on the hottest error in baluchistan province. we are in our nie a more district and baluchistan, situated about 5, i'll drive from the city of went up with the provincial capital, the authority that saying that,
6:05 am
did it damage i to 500. how did at least 20 people have been good. the military had to use helicopters to evacuate, the more seriously injured, most of the injured of god include women and children. the idea had received a number of off their shock. and this particular week was so strong that it would fade hundreds of miles away. and the provincial capital of credit and other major cities of baluchistan. the government, of course, responding in dime by dated the fear that the aftershocks could lead to more damage . as some of the structures have received considerable damage. as you can see, it is dark, but we can see the rubber from the how did that i mostly built out of mud and stone and therefore north side meekly. a solid enough to be able to withstand a strong earthquake. the people of god will be expecting relief from the government . they will be expecting danger so that those people who have lost their homes can

6:07 am
forcibly we patch, rating haitians back to the country at this point in time is counterproductive. let's listen to what the former us special envoy to haiti had to say. deportation back to haiti is not the answer right now. i am not saying that that the intending migrants who are in illegal status shouldn't be deported. but haiti is too dangerous. our own diplomats cannot leave our compound and gord branch without armed guard and the already failed. essential services delivery. the haitian government is really overwhelmed in places like city, so lead the biggest slum ma'am. the sphere i've seen pictures of, of waste and stuff. so deportation in the short term is not going to make a more stable. in fact, it's going to make it worse. daniel ford also talked extensively about the security
6:08 am
situation in haiti saying that essentially porter prince is now being run by gangs and he was aware. 3 that in one day alone, there were 20 abductions. that's the point he makes about haitians going back. the security situation is extremely darn. there really is no functioning government at the moment at now. of course, the biden administration's main policy is a free and fair elections that and as soon as possible, but that isn't going to happen until some time next year. meanwhile, the effect of daniel foot words, a lifelong diplomat on the by the administration's policies, remain to be seen parents up and down the united states are debating whether or not to get their children vaccinated comes after pfizer requested permission from the us food and drug administration to offered cobra 19 job to children, aged 5 to 11 on shore, castro has moved that the through the thought to do a walk to school in california. this week turn into a confrontation between anti vaccine protesters and parents. harassed for having

6:10 am
i am helping other kids get the vaccine in. like, honestly, if i had to get this child again, i with children now account for one in for new coven cases in the u. s. and more than $500.00 have died since the start of the pandemic. why are we losing any children to coven? if we have a very simple fixes of masking social distancing, and now a vaccine. but according to the kaiser family foundation, only one in 3 parents in the us plan to vaccinate their young child. as soon as the government allows, my son particular has some allergies that make me very concerned and you know, i just, i don't, i don't trust it. california was the 1st state to announce a covered vaccine mandate for public school children pending the f. da's full approval, doctor said that's no different from requiring kids to be vaccinated against other routine diseases. this is a vaccine like any others. and,
6:11 am
and i think our states and our school systems will have to think about how that fits into the broader, you know, their broader immunization fans. oh, the f. d, a will likely decide within weeks whether to authorize the pfizer vaccine for kids ages 5 to 11 who number about 28000000 in the u. s. health experts say that will bring the country another step closer to defeating the virus. but only if parents get their children the shots. heidi joe castro al jazeera time for shall break out as a rep when we come back. the oldest person to be tried for nazi era war crimes in germany is accused of helping murder, thousands of prisoners on times. any and all the other was not gonna is awarded the nobel prize for his uncompromising works on colonialism. and the fate of refugees wanna stay with
