Good morning. I'm Ayshah with Sunday's Newsround.

0:00:120:00:13

Prime Minister Theresa May says she does not agree

0:00:130:00:15

with Donald Trump's controversial changes to who is

0:00:150:00:17

allowed into America.

0:00:170:00:18

Yesterday President Trump said people from seven mostly Muslim

0:00:180:00:21

countries would not be allowed into the US for at

0:00:210:00:23

least three months.

0:00:230:00:24

Mrs May was criticised for not speaking out against it yesterday,

0:00:240:00:26

but has now said although America should be free to make its own rules

0:00:260:00:30

she doesn't agree with the ban.

0:00:300:00:31

There are also worries about how it could affect British people

0:00:310:00:34

who were born in those seven countries.

0:00:340:00:44

Prince William and Prince Harry have announced plans to create

0:00:460:00:49

a statue of their mum, Diana, Princess of Wales, on the

0:00:490:00:51

20th anniversary of her death.

0:00:510:00:52

The statue will be built at Kensignton Palace,

0:00:520:00:54

where the royal brothers both live.

0:00:540:00:56

The princes say they hope the statue will recognise Diana's positive

0:00:560:00:58

impact in the UK and around the world because they say

0:00:580:01:01

she touched so many lives.

0:01:010:01:07

This is Alice.

0:01:070:01:09

She is 15 and has trouble seeing, but now her life has been

0:01:090:01:13

transformed by Billy, her very own guide dog.

0:01:130:01:15

Alice is one of the youngest people in the country

0:01:150:01:18

to be given a guide dog.

0:01:180:01:19

The pair go everywhere together, including school.

0:01:190:01:21

Take a look at this.

0:01:210:01:24

It is a new term

0:01:240:01:25

and there is a new face at this high school in Nottinghamshire.

0:01:250:01:28

A very furry one.

0:01:280:01:31

Billy the Labrador is just one of around 50 expert pups

0:01:310:01:34

helping to guide blind children

0:01:340:01:37

or those who have problems with their sight in England.

0:01:370:01:42

I think it's good because I don't have to constantly have

0:01:420:01:46

to have people watching me.

0:01:460:01:48

It gives me a little bit more freedom.

0:01:480:01:51

In the past, guide dogs were not paired with children

0:01:510:01:54

because they were thought to be too much of responsibility

0:01:540:01:56

for a young person.

0:01:560:01:57

But now the rules have changed.

0:01:570:02:01

The amount of work that you have to do with him and

0:02:010:02:04

the responsibility is overwhelming.

0:02:040:02:07

But, if you put the work in, you get a good result out of it.

0:02:070:02:11

These two have been together since October

0:02:110:02:14

and are getting on just fine.

0:02:140:02:19

Having Billy in school just allows her to gain that

0:02:190:02:22

independence and resilience, confidence, and go

0:02:220:02:23

through her school life as every other child would.

0:02:230:02:25

The school have had to create a quiet area for Billy to rest

0:02:250:02:29

in and somewhere for him to walk.

0:02:290:02:31

And he has been a big hit with the rest of the pupils, too.

0:02:310:02:34

He is a bit of a poser.

0:02:340:02:36

They did see the novelty would wear off, but everybody still love seven.

0:02:360:02:40

They did see the novelty would wear off, but everybody still loves him.

0:02:400:02:43

That's it for now.

0:02:430:02:44

stories of the week.

My favourite is the firefighters in Dubai using jetpacks.

0:02:500:02:53

Have a look for yourself. Bye.
