i was 3 and 16 years old. to go to college to get a full time job. stripped away had the court decided that. different for joining the celebrations was the senate minority leader chuck schumer this is just the beginning you are going to become american citizens and great american citizens. there was a vastly different reaction from a disgruntled president who lashed out on twitter do you get the impression that the supreme court doesn't like me he asked plaintively these horrible and politically charged decisions coming out of the supreme court or shotgun blast in the face of people that are proud to call themselves republicans or conservatives he continued we need more justices we will lose our 2nd amendment and everything else in writing the majority decision chief justice roberts made clear he affected
8:03 am
to administer to failures in the trump legislation not the policy itself this is similar to the trump travel ban that was rejected by the court for the same reasons but then approved when it was reintroduced in an amended form theoretically the administration's lawyers could read draft the repeal to address the court's concerns and then introduce it again the only long term guarantee of the dream has rights is immigration reform in congress we need real solutions you need real relief from congress and from all parties because that's the only way that we can. get our path to citizenship and actually can't fool acknowledgment of all our contributions to this country. this is a minimally acceptable program and congress can not feel good about themselves even
8:04 am
throughout this that throughout this entire period they have failed to produce comprehensive immigration reform so we are we are still going to continue to hold them accountable but that is all in the future of the earth day at this place it's a time to celebrate no matter how mero the court's decision mike hanna al-jazeera washington. former u.s. national security advisor john bolton has asked a federal court to dismiss the justice department's case against him over the coming release of his book in it he writes that trump tried to enlist the help of foreign leaders to win reelection bolton's now being targeted on social media secretary of state might pompei or has used unusually strong language in a series of tweets pompei wrote that from the excerpts he's seen bolton is spreading lies fully spun half truths and outright falsehoods he said it was a sad and dangerous then called bolton a traitor who damaged america well earlier the speaker of the u.s.

house of representatives nancy pelosi said allegations in bolton's book prove that trump is unfit to serve his elevation. from the white house a mixed reaction to the impending release of the john bolton book from the president a tweet bolton's book which is getting terrible reviews is a compilation of lies and made up stories all intended to make me look but from his press secretary a different approach the book is full of classified information he is. a misguided hawk on foreign policy and a weak government author and this is despicable that he chose to publish this book without fully going through the review process chromos top treated visor a personal attack by the it's the washington swamps equivalent of revenge porn he got fired because he did not obey the chain of command because his views were totally out of sync with the president down jay trump with respect to how to how to

handle international fairs john bolton's been working on the book for months the president's long serving handpicked national security adviser was present during key moments of the trump presidency the summit with north korea and singapore the meeting with russian president vladimir putin in finland g 7 g 20 and nato gatherings around the world bolton says trump is easily flattered by authoritarian leaders who try to manipulate him and america's strategic interests are less important than winning reelection in a longer interview to iran american t.v. this weekend he says donald trump isn't fit to be president i don't think he's fit for office i don't think he has the competence to carry out the job there really isn't any guiding principle that i was able to discern other than what's good for donald trump's reelection both in was called to give evidence from congress held impeachment hearings for donald trump he took legal steps to avoid doing that the democratic leader of the house of representatives says he's no hero telling his
8:07 am
stories no president trump is clearly ethically and fit and unprepared to be the president of the united states that doesn't seem to matter to . the republicans in the united states senate didn't fame to matter to john bolton he chose royalty over lot over patriotism the trump administration is taking legal action to stop publication of the book which is due to hit the shelves on tuesday but there are many copies already in circulation and it's rare for the court to issue such injunctions in the next few weeks another book on trump is expected to be published it's written by his niece who is also a psychologist and it's expected also to be highly critical of the president alan fischer al-jazeera at the white house the australian prime minister says the country is being targeted in a sophisticated cyber attack over scott morrison stopped short of saying exactly
8:08 am
who's behind it he wouldn't be drawn on whether the attacks are part of australia's increasingly hostile rift with china what i simply can confirm is there are not a large number of state by state actors that can engage in this type of activity and it is created by strongly advise that we have received that this has been done by i started by step with very very significant type abilities little gauge our correspondent is in canberra she says a cyber attacks that hit all levels of government. from health and education through to critical infrastructure organize ations and this is something that the prime minister says is happening more frequently and on a lot just scale he said that the reason why he was announcing it to the public wasn't to concern them but to say for all of those organizations they should be making sure that they have the critical infrastructure in place to thwart an attack
8:09 am
but of course the big question here is who is behind this and already many analysts are pointing to the potential of china being the watch source all these threats interesting leave much of the rhetoric from scott morrison's press conference seem to be more aimed at the international community rather than the astray in public he was saying that that needs to protect its soul for in its national interest and he stopped short of bringing china into this he said that he wouldn't be saying who the government thought was behind this but of course this comes at a time of heightened tensions between camera and beijing they have been trade issues in the agricultural sector where the beijing and chinese government have been know putting trade sanctions on bali imports so interesting way this
8:10 am
is really raising the focus on beijing and a strike relationship even though we don't know who was behind this attack. david vaile is a sign below and data protection specialist on the low faculty at the university of south wales and joins me now from sydney good talking with us on the program mr file without naming names as opposed scott morrison doesn't want to show you might not want to either but sort of what nations are which nations and what type of organizations would have the capability for such an attack and why pick on australia. very good questions i think the prime minister was probably right to say attribution is a very difficult thing here and the standard has to be very high on the other hand quite a number of commentators and analysts today have been pointing the finger at china the other contenders would be russia and north korea possibly iran though not at
8:11 am
the same level really the difficulty is that in this space it's a form of i submit trick warfare or information warfare and that. scouts around the usual declarations of hostilities and the a dedication of who's doing the attack and a lot of it is about denial sort of denial that it was was asked an oil that. pasta texts were attributed to a particular company or country and what that means is that if you get it wrong you might have actually been falling into the the hands of somebody else trying to. as one of the attackers that all being said i think most of the opinion today suggests that it does look like it's china ok so what straightly that is a soft target is it as you say is it sending a message that we mean business or what we can infiltrate your systems maybe even manipulate the way that you do business as a government. it's aimed at the moment to a bin prepare a tree a sort of
8:12 am
a pro being a tech trying to identify public facing web services there's a particular tool that it's been identified called tarryl teller rick at the front end of certain sorts of websites this is so it's not really designed to do anything in particular at the moment it's designed to get into to find where the chinks in the armor where the access points are particularly experimental or testing services or old ones things that nobody's really looking after too closely and once that's done they try to steal the credential so they can come in through the front door posing as someone legitimate and all of this looks like it's a preparation for something lighter on the other hand it is also sending a message that it's. while it's not easy to attribute. i'm sure the people in the intelligence services and government more confident about where it's coming from and he's in that sense potentially sending
8:13 am
a message we shall see what happens in the coming days david vaile joining us from the university of south wales thanks so much for joining us from sydney i think. still ahead here on al-jazeera we hear from current virus vive in the democratic republic of congo who say they've been ostracized and. some of the system could you know look at us as individuals and we do have lives you know. months before rashard brooks was shot by us police here pulled up about his struggles with the justice system those stories after the break. but. no sign of any rain in the forecast across the middle east large city hot and dry it's been a little dusty recently with lifted dust in the sands quite brisk winds but those

8:17 am
platforms that the ads violated its policy against organized hate they showed a red inverted triangle with text asking facebook users to sign a petition against and t. for a loosely organized anti fascist movement red triangles were used by nazis to identify their political victims in concentration camps. we don't allow symbols that represent hateful organizations or hateful ideologies and less they're put up with context or condemnation you obviously want to be careful to allow someone to put a symbol to condemn it or to discuss it but in a situation we don't see either of those we don't allow it on the platform. that's we saw in this case with this ad and anywhere that that symbol is used we would take the same action and twitter has lined yet another of the president's tweens the social media company put a manipulated media warning on one of his posts after he showed a video that was confirmed to be doctored and made to look like an official c.n.n.

8:19 am
could you know look at us as individuals we do have lives you know just a mistake we may you know and you know and that not just do us as if we're animals me going through their process. hearting me harden me at a ploy you know like hey you know i have to have my my guard up because the world is cruel you know it took me to saying different things you know in the system you know it is just makes you hardened to a point you just 'd made to be behind by here yet i'm trying you know i'm not personally. you know in. going into i make it to where i want to be a major deal franklin is executive director of law enforcement action partnership he's a veteran of the baltimore police department and he says the problem of racism is
8:20 am
deeply entrenched in american policing and the fine to overhaul the system is going to be a very long. we've been trying to effect positive change here within our criminal justice system mainly policing here in the united states for a very long time for decades many people still fail to realize that during my lifetime we can go back to the 1950 s. when i was a child in this country. black men who entered into policing couldn't even ride in a police car in many of the city so as a police officer a black police officer wearing the uniform couldn't even carry a firearm couldn't even police in white communities and they couldn't arrest white citizens it's not that very long ago internally within policing here in the united states we have a serious racial issue racism is prevalent we've been trying to deal with it we've
8:21 am
been trying to eradicate it for a very long time and if we cannot rid our own ranks of racism we're certainly not going to make any advances in our community relative to police and policing in our communities let me let me explain something to you. here in the united states we have many employer you groups of color we have the national black police association which came about in the 1970 s. we have a national organization of black law enforcement executives the national lead pino officers association hispanic officers association asian peace officers of those nations even associations for women in policing and the reason for that is the old guard which is the fraternal order of police is what i consider the reservoir or racism within policing today. the return order police have been around for a long time in these big organizations that i mention the one of the ones of color
8:22 am
came about because people police officers of color and women could not get proper representation from the established fraternal order of police the major police union here in the united states and it is that union that holds all into they're not going to publicize it but they hold on to the racism that we currently see within american policing today. until we do something about the unions until we do something about the political power and control that they have over our elected officials it's going to be very difficult to move forward in american policing in ridding it of racism. mexico has reported a record rise in the number of credit hours cases more than $5600.00 units actions but that brings the total to just under $166000.00 official say that figure is likely to be much higher due to a lack of testing despite that the government is gradually easing lockdown
