demonstrations have spread to other cities jacob breaks name is now added to the long list of victims of police violence in america. and let's bring in our correspondent now stefan simons who is joining us from can no show wisconsin where jacob lay was shot i mean watching that video is is really difficult of the public they're angry we know the authorities they have deployed the national guard to patrol the protest what is the situation where you are. right there right behind me here you see a national guard and local police protecting the court house here in konoha from protesters not many promises around here anymore this iteration is significant calm down but in the last hour or 2 you see this fire there in the back there were dozens of those fires car fire as many cars on fire as exploding gas things even
trucks on fire and now also buildings are torched and were torched 'd the fire department had a really really busy night we think we also saw an event a fight law enforcement officers black no insignia no names no indifferent identification is it bresso that led to believe that also federal law enforcement officers are here and can or should not just state troopers and not just national guard and local police anyhow as i said people here are really really angry still again angry about what they think is and what happened 2 days ago another example of structural and systemic racism on display in police departments here and can osha now but across the united states what is the condition of jacob black right now. yes he was in critical condition is now in stable condition that doesn't mean that he's out of the woods but the doctors reportedly are hopeful that he will. cover stable condition from now remember 7 times shot 7 times in the back and if
you ask people around here protesters matter protesters but anybody who is on the streets during this night and was on the streets during the day and will probably come back tomorrow to assess this is a miracle that mr blake survived this if you saw the video and we all saw the video that is it probably is a miracle that mr blake is now in stable condition that is the latest on mr blake's condition and what we hear the protesters chanting behind you is black lives matter it has been 3 months stefan since another black man george floyd was killed in police custody we've seen these protests out on the streets of a changed anything. is a really good question and i wish i would have a simple and quick answer on this i don't. at the moment here this feels like
a mini minneapolis. a low scale minneapolis as of now there's days and nights to come probably but has it changed in america a little bit there are police departments across the country are trying to make really change a structural change in recruiting and who are they hiring as police officers in training in instruction of a police department 6 are we there yet as america as a country and you can or should probably not at least people here think no where near of a real change stuff and simon is joining us from good notion of wisconsin thanks jeff. and the black lives matter movement just one of the major factors that voters will consider when they go to the polls in november u.s. republicans have formally back to donald trump as their candidate for november's presidential election he'll face the democrats candidate joe biden secured the nomination on the 1st day of the republican national convention in charlotte north carolina in

5 years ago in the summer of 2015 europe face its biggest migration crisis since the 2nd world war hundreds of thousands of desperate people fleeing war and economic hardship trying to reach the continent or the largest group of migrants making the perilous journey came from syria where 4 years of civil war had forced them to flee president bashar al assad's forces had increased their attacks on opposition strongholds and the so-called islamic state was gaining strength but people from many other countries including afghanistan iraq pakistan eritrea they also left their home in search of a better future in europe faced with an unprecedented wave chancellor angela merkel's government decided to open germany's borders and almost a 1000000 migrants claimed asylum here as part of our series looking back on that summer 5 years ago we met up with 2 of those micro. look into how.
to live my name is burkholder. i was born in 1980 sure and. i fled eritrea because i could no longer stand the never ending military service at the us about how much. you know my name and i'm 31 years old. i arrived in germany in 2015 and i don't think i had to leave syria. and then after 2 years of military service i came home for the 1st time i had only seen my daughter once at birth and never again after that when i got home i walked right past her i just didn't recognize her nothing in life could be any sadder than that and yeah you can only. hope that i was arrested by the secret service. when i got out of prison i couldn't
stay in syria. i wasn't afraid to flee my you're often hungry your toilet. you want to sleep in a real bed not on the ground it's often just over the media that. yeah i never would have thought to see what's in the book i went off on my own at 1st. i didn't want the whole family to flee together. if something were to happen i wanted it to happen only to me and. i came to germany on may 2nd 2015 at 1st i was in munich then i was sent to berlin. in syria i was a doctor. and i wanted to get professional training and continue that he. was not doctors here in germany i'm not allowed to work without a license so i thought ok what can i do. i could work as an interpreter as
a volunteer. people were nice and told me some german words you have been all. over the phone up d.n.a. said it to me during the asylum procedure and i was told that i could apply for a family reunification. but i would then have to show documents that do not exist in eritrea. marriage certificates birth certificates to behave. in 2017 my wife finally had a hearing at the german embassy. right after that i wanted to call her to see how it went. then i found out that she died suddenly that. i didn't understand it at all i lost my will to live. tried 1000. and 2017 i passed the professional language exam at the medical association of
early in my mind then the knowledge exam that they're not got my license to practice medicine says he's 10000 dollars and i got my 1st job as a resident in your mind out of my work is my life it's my whole life i was just completely leveled. motherhood to business or no to well. i can never be well without my 4 children the sub is enough to say that i cannot sleep and i'm powerless. i can't say whether i want to go back to syria and leave all stay here forever. live and. die just maybe. be possible or 13 if all goes well in the us i was asked. to some high school and my hope is that my children can come to me. after all that's
what i'm fighting for as well because i can't go back. and let's get more on the situation for migrants in germany we are joined now by catarina she is the head of the department for education and family at the german institute for economic research and berlin the institute has published several studies assessing migration to germany welcome to the program and thank you so much for joining us in our report there we just heard about the very different experiences of 2 migrants who came to germany do they tie in with what you have learned from other migrants. well. look perception of migrants is very different and therefore in our reports we usually got different aspects some of the experience which we heard from the 2 who are refugees who came to germany or think what we find in particular well the well being which is really
. increasing if chilled if the children are still a broch this is something what we find in the areas you step family you really think asian is a very important thing for the well being of refugees on the other hand we also find if we look on this example of this map from syria who is a doctor that refugees once they come to germany. rather typically high expectations concerning game planning in china mean and what we find is that not all of these expectations could be really mad. yet there in particular women and. refugees were. mentally health problems they usually can't meet their expectations really for cation meeting the
expectations when it when it comes to employment what are the other issues that you know migrants refugees still encounter in the country. well we are looked on children and adolescents as one example so one thing well i think it's very positive this that children and to let the lessons who are at school actually have a very strong belonging to their school this belonging is even stronger than what we find for other. students in germany on the other hand what we also find that there are under represented represented in sport clubs or in other extracurricular activities. activity is switch would help them actually to be better integrated into the john society we have to mention that adds up. yes arik apologies back in 2015 we know the german chancellor angela merkel told
the country we can do this looking back was she right i think we sorrow all are off the 'd field back to where i would say we are on a good way i could say after 3 years and this is what our reports are looking at 3 years after you watch immigration into germany it's we love 'd at the end of the integration process so we have reached a lot there are still areas where we still have to do more accurate stick integrate in pretty girl or female refugee east jaw to really get a good education for children and adolescents and also for our other adult refugees so i would say. partly yes
we should. we should could team you always all our efforts because it's still too early to say well we. thank you so much for joining us to share that assessment catarina head of the department for education and family at the german institute for economic research we appreciate it. and there is more information on the fallout from the migration crisis 5 years on on our web site t w dot com in other news european football's newly crowned champions byron munich are back in the bavarian capital after a historic night in lisbon the red carpet was rolled out for the players who beat parsonage amaan in the champions league final they arrived with european club football's greatest prize the champions league trophy. a small number of fans were on hand to greet them later when their bosses arrived at the alley on survivor
