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. i hope we reach an agreement. i'm confident that we will reach 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 what all be hit hard by the tariffs. according to donald trump they would start at 5 percent and steadily rise to $25.00.
5:04 pm

5:06 pm
it's the lack of economic opportunities for so many migrants is the widespread criminality. that is especially for young men young boys that's why. people. working with mexico and other countries in the region to address those fundamental causes of migration it is not that is mexico to stop migration flow and that's the precedent. 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 not 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
5:07 pm
tariffs that are that the u.s. is threatening and looks like will now. imposed 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 these 2 countries it's obvious that mexico 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 mexico has is to try to separate these issues and to they him and 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 portrayed as a 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 luis your pedroza research probably at the institute for latin american studies in hamburg
5:08 pm
thank you. well here in germany the environmentalist green party is enjoying a big surge in support for the 1st time it's pulling ahead chancellor angela merkel's conservatives and it's emerged as the number one party in the nation if elections were held today this would be the outcome for the 1st time the greens would get the most votes 26 per cent going to michael's conservative c.d.u. c.s.u. bloc would be right behind with 25 percent then comes the far right all turned populist alternative for germany party with 13 percent michael's current coalition partner the center left social democrats would drop to 4th place with just 12 percent of the market friendly if the p. would get 8 percent followed by the left party with 7 percent. take a closer look now at what's driving this boost in support for germany's environmentalist we ask climate protesters today is friday is for
5:09 pm
a future rally here in berlin what they think about this green search 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 greens. green v i would vote green i think the greens have the best goals the best. think of my life i think many people see them as an alternative to feeling that but also as the lesser evil that's to minister at least they have fresh ideas they stand up for the environment and they don't block everything in advance they're 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
5:10 pm
greens leader robert thinks he knows why. these. changes its young people are involved immediately you don't have to climb a long ladder before you get heard instead you can prove yourself quickly that makes us accessible and open to social changes shifts new forms of communication issues sound 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 might lead the next german government for now they're reticent. at the next form of elections in germany or into a few years away so. such such a thing like the chancellor of the green party especially because we have
5:11 pm
a couple of very very complicated to like since coming in the east of the country so i wouldn't rule anything out but it's definitely. 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 alarcon now she's a spokeswoman for the german green party's youth organisation welcome to the program hi so from party to the top how does this new popularity feel. well it does feel good but i think on the one hand it's a huge opportunity because 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 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
5:12 pm
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 fresh elections in germany right now but i think 1st of all the pox the died the moment the government have to decide if they were to get an absolute questions of our future i at the moment when you doubt this is best for me if i look at asylum politics today to put through to them polly 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 had a good position so dead through reason when you elections 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 something that has really diminished a trust in politics we need to see how they had to folks differently or at let's
5:13 pm
talk issues than 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's today to meet the reality you have to be radical but i have been told many times oh you're going to try and you're going to see that radicals innocent i think radical to decline to have this for example if the 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 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've seen a surge on the left and the right what do you think your party can achieve in the e.u. parliament for which you are 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 search of the right parties we also have to be kind of the n.t. fascist part in the european parliament like showing them that they won't get through rift human rights violations but on the other hand also trying to find out a party's i think what is really exciting and also interesting about them and it's way more open to collaboration stand. for example is so i think we need to find partners and i respect them except for the right spectrum of the party amend and try to make them work with us the pressure does 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 greens thanks for being with us thank you for the imitation. of some of the other stories making news around the world today germany's lower house of parliament has approved controversial new asylum legislation the bill would make it easier to place asylum seekers in detention
