1:15 Immigration 'Chaos'

There is growing international backlash to immigration curbs imposed by Donald Trump on Friday. The executive order puts a 120-day hold on allowing refugees into the country, an indefinite ban on refugees from Syria and a 90-day bar on citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. This would include any New Zealand resident who is also a citizen of one of those seven countries. Josh Gerstein is the Senior White House Reporter for Politico in Washington.

1:35 Non-Browning Apple

An apple, that doesn't brown, could change the way we think of genetically modified food. The non-browning apple has taken years of development, and been met with red-tape and protests from critics. But the Arctic Apple is about to hit the shelves of American supermarkets. And some say the convenience of the product, could 'lift the cloud' of how we view modified foods. McKay Jenkins has been writing about people and the natural world for more than 30 years. He's the author of the book, Food Fight: GMOs and the Future of the American Diet, and he's with us from Baltimore.
