10:02 pm
hello there. good to have your company. we begin in the u. s. warehouse committee has been hearing harrowing accounts from the survivors of recent mass shootings and parents, victims, calling for gun reforms. the committee is examining what it's called the urgent need for congress to pass common sense legislation, including a ban on assault weapons and tougher background checks. and 11 year old girl who survived the you've all day shooting and texas 2 weeks ago was among those testifying. he shaw assume i thought you didn't come back to route for go learn the own is what it is you guys can you put a longer so you see a teacher he follow with
10:03 pm
a song i whoa, whoa, whoa. she soon please. the mother of lexie rubio, one of the 10 you old victims at rud elementary school described searching for her daughter and demanded action. we focused on finding lexie bus after bus arrived, but she wasn't on board. we heard there were children at the local hospital, so we drove over to provide her description. she wasn't there soon after we received the news that our daughter was among the 19 students and 2 teachers that died as a result of gun. but we don't want you to think of. lexi is just a number. she was intelligent, compassionate and athletic. she was quiet shy unless she had a point to make which you she was right. she so often was,
10:04 pm
stood her grandmother. she was firm direct voice unwavering. so today we stand for lexi and as her voice we demand action. well, mike, hannah is lie for us from capitol hill. hi there mike. what's being made of this very moving testimony? well, lawmakers got to see the human face of the violence that has played american cities and towns. so a long period of time listening to testimony from the parents of those killed of those injured and also listening as well to tiffany from expert discussing ways in which to approach legislation to come. but they also heard full from a pediatrician, a man in new bobby who has lived there most of its life and who's treated many of those children who have known since infancy. he talked about treating those
10:05 pm
children and also seeing the dead i had heard from some of the nurses that there were 2 dead children who had been moved to the surgical area of the hospital. as i made my word there, i pray that i wouldn't find her. i didn't find a line. but what i did find was something no prayer. whatever relief to children whose bodies have been pulverized by bullets fired at them. the capitated whose flesh had been ripped apart, but the only clue at their identities was a blood spider and cartoon close to clean to them. now the committee also her tangible measures from some about what should be contained in the gun legislation. the suggestion that the age at which a gun can be bought to be raised from $18.00 to $21.00. they should be a ban on assault weapons and a band on high capacity magazines. red flag procedures need to be improved now.
10:06 pm
many of these details are in the legislation that may be passed in the house later on in the evening. mike, there's a lot going on, isn't there behind the scenes as democrats seek to, to tighten these gun controls? tell us a bit more about that. well, it's a little bit shocking that even on an occasion like this, given the heart wrenching testimony that one heard the bi partisan, the partisan divide was all too clear. you had democrats within the committee saying that the suggestions by those giving evidence should be accepted. they should be tangible and strong. can control measures institute. yet, on the republican side, you still had to push back against that. you had republicans insisting that gun control was a left wing attempt. is one member put it on the 2nd amendment on the right to bear arms and calling instead of meaningful gun reform for added security in schools. so
10:07 pm
that is the massive partisan divide. now the house is going to promise that legislation because there is a democrat majority in the house. however, it's very different in the senate. senators have been talking behind close days in a way to try and hack out a bipartisan deal that everybody can agree to. it would never pass the legislation that's being envisaged by democrats in the house because there are 9 republican votes needed in the senate to pass any legislation. that's not going to happen on the title ideas that the democrats won. so instead, what you may get in the senate is some kind of watered down, tepid thing with, for example, maybe increase the age of buying a gun from 18 to 21. many members pointing out that in the us it's illegal to buy alcohol until you're $21.00, but not to buy a gun. so these are the type of meshes that are being discussed in the senate, but this would fall far, far short from those who shared their testimony with the american public and

10:19 pm
in southern mexico. some have been here for weeks. so have been here for months, but to really highlight a larger migrant crisis that's playing out across all of latin america. i want to show you just very quickly where we are right now. this is a, a central pause in the city of weeks la, about 60 kilometers north of mexico's border. with guatemala, you can see the conditions that many of these people are, and there's rain in the forecast is bad weather coming. there are quite a bit of children units up the u. n. agency that looks over the human rights of children. estimate that would be around $3000.00 children that are part of several different migrant groups scattered throughout the south of mexico. one thing that, that the caravans leaders are asking and warning migrants is to not get frustrated, not to get desperate to, to try to break away from the larger care of and because of the many risks that they run. but nevertheless, many of them have broken away many of them jumping on the back of freight cars where they also run the risk of losing their lives. if they fall off, have
10:20 pm
a look a dangerous attempt on the highway in southern mexico to try to make this long trip slightly easier. it's a deadly risk that's already claimed the life of at least one member of the group. rafael, a migrant from the dominican republic says he feels lucky to be alive after falling from a freight trailer. joe alcorda and though it was when i am gone by me, i was running as a truck was passing. i climbed aboard the back and tried to grab aunt, but i lost consciousness and i felt the vast majority of people in this group traveling in woods, referred to as a caravan or from venezuela. despite coming all the way from south america and crossing the infamous jungles of the darien gap, many se mexico has presented the greatest dangers. not roaming around,

10:22 pm
may be the largest group of migrants to leave southern mexico so far this year, but it's only a small fraction of those who make their way toward the u. s. southern border every year. manuel, i know that this caravan was specifically timed to coincide with the summit, but normally, how are these caravans organize? how the people join them? julie, there are a number of reasons why we keep seeing these mass mobilizations of migrants from southern mexico year after year. on the one hand, the reasoning is because there's a sense that there's safety in numbers. so they come together when things, when migrant start to pile up in southern mexico and then they move together as a group. the other reason is because of a policy that's being enforced by mexico in the south, which is a policy of containment, which creates this pilot. it's actually created one of the largest bottlenecks for migrants on the american continent when resources are stretched thin,
10:23 pm
when migrants are left with no other place to sleep, they're left sleeping out on the street. the similar to what we're seeing play out here in the, in the town of weeks. well, they have no other option than to, than to hit the road and continue to make their way north, which is what we're hearing from the vast majority of migrants here who are from many different countries. overwhelmingly there from venezuela and just about everyone that we've spoken to says that it doesn't matter what sort of barriers are obstacles or police in their way. they are committed to reaching the u. s. southern border manuel report. they're joining us with the latest manuel. fine, q u s. secretary of state has called for an independent investigation into the killing of al jesse return, assuring. actually, it was challenged about america's response to the killing during the question and answer session ahead of the summit of the americas. deplore the loss of serene. she was a remarkable journalist, an american citizen,
