Good morning. I'm Ayshah with Sunday's Newsround.
Prime Minister Theresa May says she does not agree
with Donald Trump's controversial changes to who is
allowed into America.
Yesterday President Trump said people from seven mostly Muslim
countries would not be allowed into the US for at
least three months.
Mrs May was criticised for not speaking out against it yesterday,
but has now said although America should be free to make its own rules
she doesn't agree with the ban.
There are also worries about how it could affect British people
who were born in those seven countries.
Prince William and Prince Harry have announced plans to create
a statue of their mum, Diana, Princess of Wales, on the
20th anniversary of her death.
The statue will be built at Kensignton Palace,
where the royal brothers both live.
The princes say they hope the statue will recognise Diana's positive
impact in the UK and around the world because they say
she touched so many lives.
This is Alice.
She is 15 and has trouble seeing, but now her life has been
transformed by Billy, her very own guide dog.
Alice is one of the youngest people in the country
to be given a guide dog.
The pair go everywhere together, including school.
Take a look at this.
It is a new term
and there is a new face at this high school in Nottinghamshire.
A very furry one.
Billy the Labrador is just one of around 50 expert pups
helping to guide blind children
or those who have problems with their sight in England.
I think it's good because I don't have to constantly have
to have people watching me.
It gives me a little bit more freedom.
In the past, guide dogs were not paired with children
because they were thought to be too much of responsibility
for a young person.
But now the rules have changed.
The amount of work that you have to do with him and
the responsibility is overwhelming.
But, if you put the work in, you get a good result out of it.
These two have been together since October
and are getting on just fine.
Having Billy in school just allows her to gain that
independence and resilience, confidence, and go
through her school life as every other child would.
The school have had to create a quiet area for Billy to rest
in and somewhere for him to walk.
And he has been a big hit with the rest of the pupils, too.
He is a bit of a poser.
They did see the novelty would wear off, but everybody still love seven.
They did see the novelty would wear off, but everybody still loves him.
That's it for now.
