is the latest south american nations tighten regulations 1000000 venezuelans have left the country in the last few years to escape the political and economic crisis and latin america at its mercy and human joins us now from to con where they're preparing to clues the border to see what's happening there right now. peter the deadline has already lapsed and in fact now the border is going to be closed or has been closed for anyone who isn't already on the ecuadoran side we're on again colombia's just about 200 meters from where i'm standing right now which is by the immigration entrance into ecuador thousands and thousands of people have been coming in in the last 24 hours in fact the official tally is more than 10000 lots of children it's freezing cold here and at 3000 meters above sea level in fact and so and they're still so i can see from where i'm standing right now at least
another 500 people there are going to be processed to get in here they're already on inside ecuador so they're happy about that but most of these people have no where to go peter some are being taken or have been taken throughout the day to the border with fruit but there the border is also closed to anyone who does not have a visa which is a very vast majority of the people i've spoken to so it is a critical situation they have no money they have practically no food except what people can give to them and they're just wrapped in towels or little blankets that are being given out by n.g.o.s that are in the area but it's certainly not enough peter the dramatic situation indeed why has taken this decision in this way. i think that ecuador's understood the same reason that has done it and that is and chile as well but especially this country which is right next to colombia the only country that right now has an open border for the venezuelans this is
a poor country it's an economic crisis a lot of ecuadorans have no work there's a lot of pressure on the government now to start to start reducing the number of venezuelans that are here there are at least 300000 that have stayed here another 1000000 that have been. ecuador as a transit point into. and to go on to chile and perhaps argentina but now those countries are demanding visas as well and so they're getting stuck in this country and the locals are not happy about it they're not being as welcomed as they used to be peter the venezuelans because people are saying here that they just don't have enough for themselves and that the rest of the international community has to start to pitch in latin americans can't take the whole responsibility for this extraordinary immigration crisis from the venezuelans that you mentioned 4000000 but actually it's expected to reach 8000000 by the end of this year according to the united nations thanks very much the u.n.

treated as a place that. we want to tell the world. we're moving away from sanctions yeah issues of punishment and on to a sudan that is coming back to the form of more militias contributing to peace security you know it is you know number one and for that approach. we wanted to be seen as to conclude that the paulding human rights good governance peace security at ease with yourself and peace and its neighbors the u.s. state of oklahoma is awaiting a court ruling in its case against a major american company we're talking about johnson and johnson a multinational pharmaceutical firm is being sued by the state over its role in the u.s. opioids crisis and gallica has more now from norman oklahoma. over the last 2 decades officials in this state say that more than 6000 people have died of opioid
overdoses those statistics nationally make for even more startling reading in 2017 alone the center for disease control say that that figure was almost $50000.00 which race was when happening in this courthouse over the last few months extremely important oklahoma's attorney general is accusing johnson and johnson one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in the world are flooding the market with powerful painkillers and not warning people about their addictive nature but their part johnson and johnson say no laws were broken and they were simply bringing relief to people with chronic pain if the judge sides with the state of oklahoma that could mean that johnson and johnson is forced to pay out billions of dollars in fines money that will be used in treatment centers over the next few decades but a decision like that will also set a precedent not unlike the one in the late ninety's where big tobacco paid out almost all the states and it's also important to remember there are still 2000 pending court cases across the united states many pharmaceutical companies settling
before the cases even come to court so all eyes will be on the decision made by the judge here in norman oklahoma on monday. u.s. president donald trump will be facing a 2nd challenger in the republican primaries for the 2020 white house nomination but as heidi joe castro now reports it won't be an easy task to unseat a president was strong approval ratings within his own party. in the united states no one has successfully challenged an incumbent president for his own party's nomination in more than a century and a half and president trump with his approval rating among republicans that 80 to 90 percent has laughed off any suggestion his nomination is in jeopardy but on sunday former congressman joe walsh became the 2nd republican to announce a longshot bid to unseat trump in the primaries i'm running because he's unfair
somebody needs to step up and there needs to be an alternative the country is sick of this guy's tantrums he's he's a child intraparty challenges to a sitting president are rare but have happened before ronald reagan strongly challenge president gerald ford in 1976 ted kennedy came close to winning the nomination against jimmy carter in 1980 and pat buchanan challenged the 1st president bush in 1992 each incumbent went on to lose the general election. while she and fellow republican presidential challenger william weld a former governor are both considered long shots against trump to call it suicide would be pretty close to accurate at this point but a lot can happen in 6 months especially with potential economic downturn learned looming we know that the president's approval rating is very closely tied to the
health of the economy and any continued problems with trade and such could really doubt the president. trump has weathered a rough week escalating the u.s. china trade war labeling the chair of the u.s. federal reserve and enemy and ordering private businesses to not do business with china. but the republican national committee is right behind the president and he's raised a small fortune for his campaign which make it difficult for anyone to challenge him and when. castro al-jazeera washington. america is marking the arrival of the 1st enslaved africans to the english colony of the ginia 400 years ago the commemoration comes as the u.s. president is being accused of creating a culture where white nationalism and racism can flourish alan fischer reports now from hampton virginia. the bells rang for 4 minutes.

had i wanted my wife to know a little bit about the history of my people. even after the other. listen of slavery african-americans faced open hostility brutality murder efforts to block integration attempts to stop them voting is telling all of us to feel the loser pain in recent years they've seen the rise of white nationalism an overt racism there are those who believe that the legacy of what happened 400 years ago has never been fully addressed that there's still inequality still discrimination and until those are fixed and america will never truly be the united states of america still has a legal muscle memory towards racialism towards inequality and so after 400 years historians are now telling that truer story that more accurate story about the true origins of our nation about this original sin that people talk about
