(justine) president trump has signed a bill to reopen the government for three weeks. (jrs) backing down from his demand that congress give him money for his border wall before federal agencies get back to work.standing alone in the rose garden friday, the president said he would sign legislation to fund government agencies until feb. 15 and try again to persuade lawmakers to finance his long-sought wall. the deal he reached with congressional leaders contains no new money for the wall but ends the longest shutdown in u- s history.first the senate, then the house swiftly and unanimously approved the deal.

remembered this week for what he gave and what he was deprived of because of the government shutdown. although frank esposito died off duty, life-long service like his is usually honored with a formal uniformed funeral procession but the request was denied by the u.s forest service in washington due to the furlough. grace blair, family friend: "they denied his super being brought down. they denied any of the buggies to be able to be brought down which was a little hard because he spent 28 years with forest service." while other fire departments in the area came to pay their respects in uniform, members of the us forest service weren't allowed to wear theirs and instead they could only wear their crew polos. his family says it was disheartening. jessica rogers, daughter: "he dedicated a lot of his young life for the forest seice. there were many summers i remember we rarely seen each other because he was out there fighting those fires doing what he loved to do."grace blair whose husband worked with esposito says he was like a father to them and loved by the community and so she says it
hurt to see him not get the full honoring grace blair, family friend: "you look back and you expect to see a sea of green pants and tan shirts and it wasn't there."

(justine) queen elizabeth sent a coded message to britain's politicians-- urging them to set aside their differences and forge a way forward through the brexit impasse. this is seen as unusual.. because the british monarch has consistently remained above politics. but her call to see "the bigger picture" in a speech thursday -- comes amid new warnings about the potential fallout if there's no-deal. cnn went out to the streets of london to get reaction to en "there parliament arguing over other, i think the queen should stay out of it as well." gabrielle from southampton, england: "if the queen got political and she got more into it? i mean, i don't really see that as her role." michelle from lake district,
england "it is probably about time that the queen did say something, obviously her opinion probably matters for the whole of the uk."alex from essex, england "whatever i see in the papers doesn't look good, so maybe it's time for someone else to take the reins on it." >(justine) britain's parliament is set to debate brexit "plan b" next week. (justine) now there is some concern in england about the meat people are eating because of brexit. more than 90-percent of the veterinarians certifying livestock for human consumption in the u-k come from the e-u. (jrs) a majority of livestock vaccines designed to keep the animals healthy and safe for consumption also come from the e-u. c-n-n's nina dos santos reports on the latest about brexit and its potential impact on food safety in the u- k. simon maiklin welcoming this veterinarian to his dairy farm for a house call to certify the health and condition of the 300 cattle here. he's a big part of the food chain,
bringing meat and dairy products to kitchen tables and brexit uncertainty is now part of this food chain as well. the uk has a shortage of vets this one from portugal. rui d'orey branco, westpoint farm vets: "we currently, we're looking for a veterinarian in my practice and we were, all the applicants that we had were non-uk. we had italians, spanish, portuguese, german, but we didn't have one single uk veterinarian are apply for the job."the uk's leading veterinary body estimates that 95 percent of vets in the meat industry come from the eu. the group is also warning that a no-deal brexit would make matters worse, affecting public health and animal welfare. jason aldiss, man. dir., eville & jones: "ninety eight percent of my staff are non-uk european origin. if, in the outcome of a no-deal brexit we will not have access to such individuals, then immediately we wo crisis, and within two months of individuals not be able to
come into the country." marianna, who's also portuguese, is a vet who certifies meat in abattoirs, an eu law, for that crucial last stage before human consumption. john awoyemi, agro foods: "this is where it matters because this is where the finished product. what you see on your table comes up at this exact point, and without the vet being there i can't guarantee the quality of your product."the government says the rules about having vets in abattoirs will not change after brexit. but there are still other concerns. mariana santos, eville & jones: "the cost of living might increase which will obviously make it harder to live here."any disruption in the food chain would delay the supply of mecon dos santos, cnn: "and this is the end of the food chain here on this butcher's counter in london. all of these meats from the lamb cutlets, to the calves liver, have been through a rigorous inspection process from the farm, to the abattoir and from here they'll be supplied to fine restaurants and of course family dinner tables, all in compliance with the eu rules that could change after brexit."the health of livestock also depends on the supply of vaccines, and the majority of vaccines needed for livestock come from the eu. animal health officials
say that this is also a public health issue, and guaranteeing supply is a must. simon is already worried about medicines and vaccines for next winter. simon maiklin, mynthurst farms: "whether or not that will be available for next winter?"he is looking forward though to the english summer when his pastures are filled with grazing cattle. a summer that hopefully will also be one without any more brexit uncertainty. nina dos santos, cnn london.
