one of some most impoverished areas the u.n. says her living conditions have become unbearable now appointed by me to manage how can someone live like this look at the doors unhinged i asked god to let me live in a decent home and not live here anymore. but i've met bella says rats are eating away at her bed and she struggles to feed her young children she says she's planning to do with thousands of other honduran nationals have done migrate to the united states ok i. think. the situation in this country is awful that's why people are migrating i'd like to migrate to i tell my two daughters were going to leave they say yes mom let's leave. across the street runs a small motorcycle repair shop but he says business is bad and people are out of work several of his neighbors have already left the country but don't think many
8:02 am
people from this area have migrated friends of mine have left too and for the same reason because there's no work. for us we're told a c.p. can't make ends meet soon he may also leave the country ponderous ranks among the poorest nations in the world were six in ten homes are subject to extreme poverty a majority of families that live in this shanty town in the city of. don't have access to medical attention or clean water or even electricity one of the biggest obstacles to addressing this level of under development is. islands. many of the thousands of hundred migrants making their way to the u.s. southern border say they're fleeing violence from gangs in criminal groups with forty four homicides per one hundred thousand people under a supper's one of the highest murder rates anywhere in the world. but most hundreds looking to leave the country blame poverty and a lack of opportunity for wanting to fleet. the bonaparte field the decision to leave honduras comes down to doing what's best for her youngest children and
8:03 am
breaking the cycle of poverty let it happen and dizzy down some pivotal. president trump has seized on the migrant caravan as a key issue ahead of sunday's midterm elections the u.s. soldiers are expected to stay at the border until mid december. we no wonder security is national security and the u.s. military will advance capability to harden the border department that has already and will continue to provide support to c.b.p. to secure the borders our message to the organizers and participants of this caravan is simple as the president and secretary neilson have made clear we will not allow a large group to enter the united states in an unsafe and unlawful manner that's going on and mike hanna has joining us live from washington d.c. so why is it mike the ministration feel that they need to the very large number of extra forces at the border now. well indeed yes the numbers that are
8:04 am
now adding up at the border far outnumber the group of immigrants who are on their way still hundreds of kilometers away the administration contends that these extra troops are needed for mainly logistical purposes there are engineering battalions involved who could lay extra wire there are medical units there are helicopter units with night vision capability the administration contends all of this is needed to bolster the efforts of the national guardsmen already in place and the customs and border protection officers who have been deployed along that border for a long period of time so on one level it could be overkill on another level the administration and the community the c.b.p. insists that they need as much support as they can get and they have been very keen to emphasize that this five thousand number is made up of people like engineers and pilots and not just soldiers why the urgency well the
8:05 am
urgency would appear not to be linked directly to the immigrants on their way they are still as i said hundreds of kilometers away it could take weeks before they get to the border but it does appear and it is stated explicitly by the trumpet ministration that immigration is going to be a central feature of its campaign in the midterm elections we've heard president trump week after week rally after rally rail about the whole issue of what he calls illegal immigration and certainly this move now particularly labeling the immigration coming towards the u.s. as an invasion is certainly going to go to the trump support base and viguerie them as the president would hope. mike thank you very much for that for now that is mike hanna live in washington d.c. but we are going to get more on this we're joined by bill schneider political
8:06 am
analyst and professor of public policy at george mason university and he's also joining us live from washington d.c. mr snyder always a pleasure to have you with us on al-jazeera so what did you make of what we heard from mike there is this deployment five thousand troops a week before the midterm elections is it about the elections it's all political the president wants to make in immigration the central theme of this election and president trump is hopping mad that in the last week or two he has lost control of the agenda he expects to control the whole political agenda first came the tragedy then we had the pipe bombs that were sent by a nurse american terrorist then we had the murders in pittsburgh and the president was not really in control of any of those events had very little to do with them so the president wants to control the message and he wants the message to be about immigration that's what rallies his base he believes with some justification that
8:07 am
the immigration issue was what got him elected in the first place in two thousand and sixteen and is this regardless of the fact you know that there are genuine asylum seekers amongst you know the people that are making their way in this caravan yes that's right but he says that he's on an issue an executive order banning any immigration from anyone in central america he's going to close off the border to central americans all together at least for the time being and he can do that by executive order which means the migrants will show up at the border they'll be no legal process for them to go through because the president says anyone from central america is not allowed to come into the united states and will does work for the republican party is it enough to have won them the midterm elections what if there are clashes at the border. well the military are not supposed to detain or deploy or deport anyone they are there to give support to the customs and border
8:08 am
protection agents who have that legal responsibility they provide logistical support they provide lots of supplies they are able to spot people who are illegally crossing the border and report that to the border patrol so it's probably not probable that will see armed clashes i don't think many of these migrants are actually armed but they they will be there and they will be kept footage of them probably in the president's reelection campaign two years from now of armed soldiers standing at the border protecting the security of americans and that could be a very strong powerful campaign theme this is not a thank you very much for your time your analysis on this that is joining us live from washington d.c. thank you. more headline news hour including the group of jewish leaders in pittsburgh tell president trump that he isn't welcome there after the senate unless he stops targeting minorities. more than a dozen people injured after

8:15 am
a right wing white extremism that has proven to be the greatest source of domestic terror attacks in the united states shihab rattansi reports. the mailing of pipe bombs to the democratic party establishment the killing of two african-americans at a supermarket in kentucky the murder of worshipers at a pittsburgh synagogue all of last week's attacks were committed by right wing extremists and that isn't a surprise given the statistics the have been several studies in recent years examining the source of extremist violence in the u.s. and their results differ depending on their methodology the conclusion is always the same the american right wing is responsible for most extremist violence in the us the government accountability office found seventy three percent of domestic attacks since nine eleven were carried out by right wing extremists university of maryland found islamic extremists killed fifty one people in that same period the far right one hundred thirty one and
8:16 am
a historical anomaly appears to be occurring experts say that usually the right wing extremist groups increased during democratic administrations but declined under republican administrations that does not appear to be happening under donald trump if the people in power are using narratives about victimhood to justify their political platform and because they're in power that political platform has they've got then the bully pulpit they've got the megaphone and everybody's listening. in elected political leader can still magnify those narratives about victimhood of that identity group none the less the trumpet ministration has been attempting to make the main focus of law enforcement islamic extremism while cutting back funding to combat far right extremists last week's attacks differ in motivation the pipe bomb was found was planted in slogans supporting donald trump the pittsburgh synagogue attack was not a donald trump supporter dismissing him as a globalist rightwing shorthand for a person involved with
8:17 am
a jewish conspiracy to control the world but that is the term trump himself has been using as he pursues his election winning narrative of an existential struggle between real america. and of the democratic party mob every citizen benefits when we stop foreign countries from cheating our workers that's what they've been doing you know they called globalists they like they like the blow i like to do low to doldrum supporters are quick to point out that both his daughter and son in law are jewish so there's no way the president could be anti-semitic but it is clear that he's normalizing extreme right wing rhetoric ahead of the november midterm elections to fire up his base and that helps explain why a group of progressive jewish leaders here have made it clear the president isn't welcome in pittsburgh until he denounces white nationalists. pittsburgh. still ahead on the news out of the changing tide of politics away take a look at how brazil's choice for a fog violated could be part of
