  1. He's been talking to Scomo.
    Please just send them straight back. Get out of your treaties and send them straight back. Don't torture them in camps when you've no intention of letting them in anyway.

  2. Listening to all this shockingly cruel information, just ruined my lunch!. How can one enjoy peace and quiet when others are suffering horribly? What happened to "do unto others…"? Americans are so good at rallying round to cope with a catastrophe, surely they will organise succour for these unfortunate folk, as they so uniquely do?

  3. the color 'brown', is related to the immigration issue, only because most people, perchance, are of latin origin. the genetics of such, permit 'brown' ethnicity. we dont want any color ILLEGAL immigration and illegal entitlements…. make illegal immigration a racist issue hypocritical you

  4. As it is written " he opened NOT the house of hiss prison …" Isiah 14 :
    All that POTUS 45 says and does is the Mockery of the spirit and word
    of The King of Glory, !!! Be NOT deceived the Lord Jesus Christ is
    being Mocked by the OFFICE of the presidency, POTUS 45 and
    A-bad – Don – allturd Trump the UBER- Mocker the Destroyer and
    The Tongue of darkness ( USA needs tongue control not gun control)
    The voice of Satan, Trump is the Absolute Reprobate…..

  5. Republicans and NRA and Trump brings up "slippery-slope " saying if background checks, then later guns will be confiscated. So they argue "indefinitely" doesn't lead to years or no limit, no guarantee. Can't have both conflicting possibilities, will lead vs won't happen.

  6. You all know that Adolf Hitler got to power democratically, right? You are witnessing an antisemitic dictatorship rising from a pretty reasonable democratic state. Germany also was a pretty reasonable state. We had a problem with Russia in the war, so being friends with Putin is a good strategy for ruling the world.

  7. I have never clicked on one single msnbc video in my life yet the algorithm keeps on playing your content. Nice to know you’ve got the system rigged in your favour. Again I have never clicked on one single msnbc video.

  8. This is WRONG THEY SHOULD BE FREE. THEY CAME FOR FREEDOM. TRUMP HAS KILLED THE RIGHTS OF IMMIGRANT S.WE ARE ALL IMMIGRANTS. I AM AN IMMIGRANT. TRAITOR TRUMPS POLICIES OF THIS TRAITOR IA APPALLING.JAIL THIS MOBSTER.

  9. Dang, inmates who've committed crimes 100 times worst than entering a country illegally, has soap and a toothbrush/toothpaste to use. I don't want my tax dollars used for this. I work too dang hard! Send them back or allow them to stay.

  10. In the flores case it took over 10 years pto be settled. That would have been a 10 year detention of a minor under what trump is trying to pass.

  11. Pfftt, who is the he-she chic pushing the 'white supremacy' palaver?
    Be interesting to see if the freak is Soros funded.

  12. Sounds like Trump and friends want the money train of migrant detention to be a permanent bank acct. That can not stand.l!

  13. i was watching you tube about these "closed" walmarts and their plans were to lock up anyone and everyone so you may be next. oh wait he just said any american point and case. get rid of these idiots scary

  14. Just put the government in prison and let the migrants be free. This country holds the LARGEST prison population in the world already.

  15. Gang members should be considered terrorists…just saying. Until the people we voted to protect us from a tyranny act, there is really no point in arguing much about it I guess. Donal Trump is a tyrant on the making.

  16. Why won't Congress fund the 500 judges to process the asylum case back log? Perhaps Congress members are vested in the private companies that run the detention centers. Perhaps a reporter can investigate who in Congress is vested in this private run system. Would it not be best for citizens to know how Congress makes their side money?

  17. There is a David Pakman video – showing LOTS of signs & symptoms (Is Trump Suffering From Dementia) of cognitive decline. Well spoken, well documented, short but showing many examples of serious symptoms. Trump should resign before being impeached because that might be on the table.

  20. The reason for the detention camps is to exercise blatant cruelty on 'illegal aliens'.
    The GOP endorses cruelty, by those who receive the contracts to commit human rights abuses, on behalf of american citizens. The GOP benefits politically from the accumulation of human rights abuses, because their base cheers for it. Their base would also cheer for and participate in lynchings, and a significant number of them are ready and equipped to martyr themselves for the white nationalist cause.

  24. Deportation prelude Democratic presidential hopefuls swooning over open borders might want to reconsider in light of the latest Harvard/Harris poll. If they want to be elected, that is.

    According to a poll released last weekend, the majority of Americans want Congress and the president to close loopholes in the nation's asylum system that allow mass flows of foreign nationals to pour through the U.S.-Mexico border. If that doesn't happen, they want "mass deportations" of illegal aliens.

    The Harvard/Harris poll finds that 51 percent of American voters say they support deportations of the 11 million to 22 million illegal aliens living in the U.S.

    Congressional inaction appears to be the driver in this poll result. More than 8 in 10 Republican voters, more than 5 in 10 swing voters and nearly 9 in 10 Trump supporters told Harvard/Harris the president shouldn't wait much longer for Congress to straighten out the system before he embarks on a major deportation program.

    By a majority of 53 percent, working and middle-class Americans, those earning $75,000 a year or less, support mass deportations if Congress fails to act. A majority of Americans 35 to 49 years old also support mass deportations following inaction from Congress.

  25. Trump: "Every child is a children of God". As God is white, his children are white too. Therefore the brown Hispanic children do not count. These are the thoughts of our President, the Stable Genius and the Chosen One. Cannot understand why Denmark refuses to sell him Greenland.

    I envision dumbty to be arrested between the porch of the Whitehouse and the helicopter on the White "black?" house lawn! It's just a matter of time. God will wait until his wickedness is full. As all evil men in power or kings who declared themselves gods were brought to their ruin in time! Think, Pharoah, Think, Stalin, Lenin, Hitler, Nebbucanezzer, Some Caesars!

Also to try and protect themselves should they find themselves being prosecuted for all the crimes they are now busy covering up. Their objective is to overtake the country and make it White again. This is the truth.

  41. Where is the United Nations Commission on Human Rights?  It is their job to condemn these things.  Or are they just sitting around on their fat a$$ and collecting a pay check.
