6:02 pm
day in the future most of those coming from the south won't be able to enter mexico at all the government has pledged to deploy up to 6000 troops in the area to stop the flow of north bound migrants despair spreads fast among those being turned away . more do we going to go back to our country and suffer we have no choice like killing us back home. an agreement on illegal migration between mexico and the us could see an overhaul of asylum rules across the region with central american migrants having to seek refuge in the 1st country they enter after leaving their homeland it's thought that would drastically reduce the number of migrants reaching the u.s. border. mexico has repeatedly rejected the so-called safe 3rd country agreement but the increasing pressure could make the country buckle is. where i hope we reach an agreement. i'm confident that we will reach
6:03 pm
a deal. put in place the unilateral measures expected to start on monday but. a loon is. due to its strategic location free trade agreements and low wages mexico has become an attractive destination for international companies companies that would all be hit hard by the tariffs. according to donald trump they would start at 5 percent and steadily rise to $25.00. minutes and you go this is bad because the decision makers they don't have a red line that the united states is violating the rules of the free trade agreement. that the. struggling to a piece u.s. decision makers mexico has broadened its migration crackdown in recent days not only turning back but also detaining hundreds of migrants and freezing the bank
6:04 pm
accounts of suspected human traffickers. but there is a risk none of the measures will be enough for donald trump despite mexico's efforts many in washington still expect the tariffs to go into effect on monday. for more of the story let's talk to luis. she is a research fellow at the giga institute for lot of american studies in hamburg thanks for being with us thanks so much is planning to deploy an extra $6000.00 troops to try to stem the flow of refugees coming up through its country what impact do you think that's going to. 1st of all that's going to have an impact in the lives of so many people that that make a living out of trans border. that's going to make life very difficult for them and that's going to of course make migrants very wary of trying to cross the border to mexico do you think it will actually solve the problem no.
6:05 pm
border it's a problem. of the country triangle and central america if we don't address those costs is the problem with. what is driving migration from central america up through mexico into the u.s. because if we don't address those problems or the sources the drivers of course will be very difficult to stop what is driving a political crisis we have a government that has been posting. a big driver of. us. for so many migrants. that is especially threatening for young men. that's why. people are. working with mexico and other countries in the region to address those
6:06 pm
fundamental causes of migration it is not that is mexico to stop the flow and that's the president plan to stop migration flow would be to address those causes more fundamentally by investing in the economy so these 3 countries that the u.s. is ready to join such a plan what options does mexico and its efforts to. address the flow itself getting away from the causes now but to avoid the sanctions or the tariffs that are that the u.s. is threatening and it looks like when the. well very few options if we just look at the economies of mexico and the us the huge power imbalance the huge power symmetry between the 2 countries it's obvious that makes eco has very few options also because it's very powerless on the economic side because we have the mexican economy is very dependent on exports to the united states but the only option that
6:07 pm
mexico has is to try to separate these issues and to they him and lee reject the connection of migration to economic policies migration is a social issue and that's what the current government government is trying to to portray it as as a certain social and economic issue but not an issue that should be addressed with terrorists and we see thank you very much for talking with us today louisa pedro's a research pro at the institute for a lot of american studies in hamburg thank you. here in germany people have been both shocked and puzzled by the death of a popular politician in the state of. walter was found dead from a single bullet in his head last week he was a leading advocate periphery g.'s and migrants a stance that had brought him death threats over the past few days disturbing comments gloating over his death have surfaced online
6:08 pm
a reporter traveled to look his hometown to find out. it was a shock to the had a very close friend here in front of his house c.d.u. politician by to look was found by a family member early sunday morning since his death no clues had a much talk about the perpetrator or the perpetrators and habitants of his home village easter has shocked the world. it's a very difficult situation for the town and for me too he had his own views views that you could run up against that you could debate with him. at a community meeting in 2015 look because stood up for refugees telling those who disagree that. you have to stand up for these values whoever doesn't represent them can leave the country at any point. or d.n.c. members from the far right where i would very much by his words look even received
6:09 pm
death threats afterwards now in the days after the killing disturbing commons appeared online you don't have to be sad it's a reason to be happy. you get what you deserve he was a traitor of the people. many people now shocked by the commons and president. condemns the hateful speech the monk shocked through in the way that some individuals on social media have a chance of going to michael's conservatives and it's emerged as the number one party in the nation if elections were held now this would be the outcome the 1st time the greens would get the most votes 26 percent on the limb ackles conservative seaview c.s.u. bloc would be right behind with 25 percent then comes the far right populist alternative for germany party with 13 percent miracles 30 current coalition partner of the center left social democrats would drop to 4th place with just 12 percent
6:10 pm
business friendly f.t.p. would get 8 percent followed by the left party with 7 percent. so those are the polling numbers let's take a closer look now at what's driving this boost in support for germany's environmentalists are we asked climate protesters at today's friday for a future rally here in berlin what they think about this green surge for. demonstrators have been protesting for weeks to get the politicians to act on climate change many think the green party has at least some of the answers does that explain the support for the grains. green v i i would vote green i think the greens have the best golds the best thing. you think of my life i think many people see them as an alternative to feeling that but also as the lesser evil that's. meanness tightly and they have fresh ideas if they stand up for the environment and
6:11 pm
they don't block everything in advance the only political force who are doing anything or at least say they're going to do something. in the recent year opinion elections green parties more than doubled their seats in brussels in germany they took one in 5 votes giving them the 2nd highest support of any party greens leader robert hartwig thinks he knows why these. changes its young people are involved immediately you don't have to climb a long ladder before you get hurt instead you can prove yourself quickly that makes us accessible and open to so show changes shifts new forms of communication issues and fresh views. of current as one poll shows 27 percent of germans think the greens have the best chances for the future far ahead of the other main parties is it time for them to start building up the personality who
6:12 pm
might lead the next german government. for now they're reticent. at the next formal election in germany or into one of 3 years away so we're definitely too early to talk to such such a thing like the chancellor of the green party especially because we have a couple of very very complicated like since coming in the east of the country so i wouldn't rule anything out but it's definitely too early to talk. for now the anger about climate changes lead to a blossoming in the greens popular support only a national election will show if we can take them back into government. well let's hear from ricardo she's a spokeswoman for the german green party's youth organization welcome to the program many people trust us to have a future and trust us to be able to put change into political reality on the other hand a huge responsibility because distrust also means that people are going to look very
6:13 pm
closely what we're going to do in the next year is what we are going to put forward so it feels like both at the same time trust raises expectations shall we say given these poll numbers with your party now at the very top in germany for the 1st time your party could profit most if the current government under chancellor merkel were to collapse some say this might happen would you like to see pressure elections in germany right now but i think 1st of all the pox the died the moment of the government have to decide if they work together questions of our future and i at the moment really doubt those especially if i look at the asylum politics today to put trudeau poly amend. laws to die going to make it way way harder for refugees so i have my doubts but i think it would be really wrong to say we are in a good position now so dead through reason what you actually to i think people having the feeling that politics is mainly focused on what is going to come out from my party what is like my benefit i get out of it i think this has been
6:14 pm
something that has really diminished a traffic politics we need to see. differently all right let's talk issues then climate change the number one concern of many if not most voters in germany tackling it the tory asli difficult if you really think your party could make an impact where other parties in this country have not. that's not only because i think we see that speech today to meet the reality you have to be radical i've been told many times oh you're going to grow up and you're going to see that radicalism work i think radical to decline to have this fight sample to ending co will and she we can't wait until 2038 we can't wait until 2040 we have to get out of coal europe wide and 2030 and the creams and about one a few only parties to that really saying well we have to do what's necessary to stop climate change if we look around europe when you look at the european elections we have seen
6:15 pm
a surge on the left and the right what do you think your party can achieve in the e.u. parliament for which you were a candidate i know do you think you're going to be able to change the european union with respect to climate policy i think we have to i think we have to try on the one hand i think if you look at the surge of the ride we also have to be kind of the empty freshest pot in the european parliament like showing them that they won't get through if data human rights violations but on the other hand also trying to find other parties i think what's really exciting and also interesting about. it's way more open to collaboration stand on this talk for example is so i think we need to find partners on every spectrum except for the right spectrum of the poly amend and try to make them work with us the pressure is on the streets right now in the whole of europe for friday's future is really going to help them along spokes person for the youth wing of germany's grange thanks for being with us thank you for the invitation. now to some of the other stories making headlines around the

6:19 pm
your kid your hearts bursting with pride and you want to share it widely so you posted on you too that after you hear this you may want to think twice about doing that for you to better turtill bowler is here to explain why till what's the issue here so as you may know kids videos are insanely popular on you tube. and this is what i mean a single video can get how drifts of millions of views like this one point to have is as close to 220000000 views and we're not talking about high quality video production it's just a simple homemade video no fancy editing noise facts so the problem now is of course you don't know who's watching unfortunately videos like this attract paedophiles and this has always been the case but with you tube there's a whole new dimension of problems at a to it so for once this you tube recommendation ag rhythm so let's say you
6:20 pm
a paedophile and i'm looking for a video of a go in the bikini you only need to find one video like this and then the recommendation system keeps feeding you more and more and more of the same videos and one of those might be with you if your child and then secondly there's the comment section which enable its users to put like innocent videos in a sexualized context and also to interact which is which each other and to to build like a community. ok well mission algorithms as being 11 part of the problem or isms are programmed by people right. what is you tube doing about this yes in fact you. just announced that they are taking actions so for once.
6:21 pm
they are not allowing minors to lifestream anymore unless they out accompanied by an adult but this raises lots of questions so this may also be controlled by an artificial intelligence but how will it tell the difference between a 17 year old minor and an 18 year old young adult and what does it mean to be accompanied i don't always have to be in front of the camera so i'm very skeptical about this because. it has shown time after time that it's not true reliable then secondly youtube says it's disabling comments on videos featuring minors and we took a look but then what we saw was that there were lots of problematic videos featuring minus with the comment sections that are open so you tube does not seem smart enough to correctly identify all the videos that would require protection
6:22 pm
just we only have a little time left what's the solution and how do we deal with this yeah. this is a move in the right direction but unless the platform would completely block videos featuring minors this won't go away so ultimately it would be the adults and the teenagers who have to decide do i want my video online and available for the whole world to see which just may include child abusers till thank you very much a very difficult problem and an important problem needs to be tackled there till bill or are you 2 better to hear it. the women's world cup is about to get underway in leone the defending champions united states are among the favorites once again but they're not the only former champion seeking to reclaim the trophy and as the popularity of the women's game explodes across the globe they face more competition than ever to retain their
