2:37 pm
house. that i'm ninety it's about well living in germany speaking a little bit but not through injury so it's not a problem when you make some mistakes we have an examination. at the end of this course and some basic the most important thing is that they can speak and we can understand their language lessons are funded by the state and free for refugees from the five countries given party status by the german government but the oversubscribed with two hundred thousand people nationally still in need of a place it means that not all the refugees and detmold have received the same treatment. our children were not amused to see you have to get a friend market bubbles in the us but there is a invest. in bed in the us a shelf of proof is true too much of it i'm sure you talked off the shelf or does
2:38 pm
she ok she. says yeah sure there is because he is from sudan which isn't on the government's priority list emanuel doesn't have access to as much support as other refugees it's something of a sore point for me i don't have the time to love to make a general calls for free it felt to me that you know how to give us a. why not me and let me use a soft like i would if you started other people. the language problem is still a common stumbling block to full integration there's plenty of work here in theory in two thousand and fourteen germany opened its doors to refugees promising gainful employment. with an aging population and a falling birth rate to countries and die in need of manpower but like many thousands of others emanuel will only really benefit when he can speak german competently. saying in the recent in the meantime he's restricted to unskilled was
2:39 pm
only three hundred fifty euros a month reasons for coming here. for now emmanuel works for a charitable organization it collects unwanted funicello to distribute free of charge to low income households. it's really just to get to our place and if and. if i need someone is in need to come in our place. and if you see that something's got to take it. this is like shopping but without money. i understand the cereals need and someone use something so when i go dad and some people coming to don't have anything and to get something it's making me also feel good. how much you want it i think you saw the need in the communal us i assure you none of us and i don't think of the president of egypt i
2:40 pm
know i came over to the depths of the heart of been if. the so had a little bit think you know if there's a ship i said you just know what they're for don't want to go out there you know back in sudan emmanuel had a senior position at a five star hotel. but here in germany he must make do with work as a removal man number less he considers himself to china for now. he said we need a physical mind things i visit to do some things not looking at the things i saw i meet new people that is i have some celebrity every day i have to work morning. to do my job as a human being so it's helping a lot it's not only about money it's having need to be healthy but even with a steady job under his belt emanuel fears that he will be allowed to stay in germany. to try to get. the stolen emissions have mission.
2:41 pm
here you know it's a complete one up you know doesn't you know is there something in there but here is his german friend who really has been helping him with his residency application he loves his warehouse she's why i'm here and she's my best friend and sister and family and she's my everything they did with so many refugees to deal with the state is swamped with asylum requests and sometimes it can take years before an application is processed. emanuel has been on the waiting list for eighteen months for humanitarian reasons we ask for complete stopping off him being rejected and these things said from germany. i think we would be successful also in this because we we believe in him and that's enough proof that a man has been well integrated this working here so it's a good chance as i think. away from the
2:42 pm
complex paperwork and concerns about employment and language skills the theater performance is finally coming together. as a section i'm guessing is activating the nine some kalash. is that she had just finished. the song collage and this in noir two months but as i knew me i just feel if i see it is love. this is just the theme for today's expulsion for fear of which still haunts some of the refugees. actually mr shims in my belly my lip to. the highest us has only one. man off until a full on past unfreeze the. defun not tying. playing ten.
2:43 pm
is a yard of mention. it's. an event to unleash doubt. and then all too quickly the big day arrives in debt most town square project theater could pass for that performance. entitled a meeting in paradise it's to be a possible reflection on what sanctuary in germany has given to the refugees on. and i found. that out and if i am a god that i am not going like this and he would say give those things i think ok to feel i feel the show begins with the story of the refugees as flight from home fees.
2:44 pm
fees. as you did here to get this into this is just absolutely in this is bad just to listen to. the but if you do get. in the second top of the performance the audience is invited to get involved. so. they can taste the traditional soup listen to recitals from the migrants or sign up for some charity what. we believe to be in the ninety's is food is
2:45 pm
a big thank you. thank you and. told you can go there and tweak something altogether if there's a big deal with the good and the good and see if i help out with and then to really add fuel relative to the old so like that was unsuccessful in the name just as an interesting is the end of its name and stuff she sacrifices by money by no means it would be wrong to conclude from this brief glimpse into germany's assimilation process no matter how successful it has been in detmold that refugee is a universally welcomed there is growing intolerance and frustration to be found here as elsewhere in europe and whether they do is remain open to migrants remains to be seen. for now though the one hundred plus million euros that is costing the german state seem to be being well satisfied. thanks is just the beginning of next so when i tried to understand this i don't need to get

2:49 pm
president barack obama who defeated mccain for the presidency has also released a statement that reads in part john mccain and i were members of different generations came from completely different backgrounds and competed at the highest level of politics but we shared for all our differences a fidelity to something higher the ideals for which generations of americans and immigrants alike have fought marched and sacrificed few of us have been tested the way john once was all required to show the kind of courage that he did we understand as a political analyst and he says john mccain is admired by people on both sides of the political divide and. he's a beloved figure not primarily for his ideology or his partisanship which are overvalued these days but because of his personal qualities i remember covering the twenty eight republican primaries and we wondered how did john mccain do so well among republicans when he departed from conservative orthodoxy on a lot of issues and the answer was his votes came from republicans who admired him
2:50 pm
as a person as a heroic figure as a person of great moral leadership they admired his records his experience his values it was very very personal for most voters not just republicans who supported john mccain and some democrats who supported him as well when he was captured in vietnam he refused to be released the north vietnamese offered to release him because of his personal stature and his father was a navy naval officer and he refused to be released unless other officers were released at the same time and so he actually extended his captivity on the basis of principle and that established his image forever as a man of high principle in fact i would argue that donald trump's the lowest moment came during the campaign when he insulted john mccain and said he was captured i don't like people who were captured that was an unforgettable statement and joe and it was i think donald trump's the lowest moment in politics pope francis has
