  • what is an American says:

    I just want to remind you what black men and women had to go through when their babies were being used as alligator bait right here in America….
    There was no tears shed for us

  • Donald Intlekofer says:

    Come in undocumented, and you can work for trump.   Loved the raid on Koch brothers food processing,  guess I missed the part where the good old boy republicants got arrested for bringing and employing the undocumented people.   What a joke this par

  • Mexicans don't need help from government we work hard for what we have with a fake or made up SSN AMERICA SHOULD TAKE SOME Notes most black on government assistance fare work for fare pay

  • That the rich employ undocumented workers is not new. The non- prosecution of people such as DJT for doing this shouldn't raise any eyebrows.

  • Let's see, who does stuff like this remind me of? Who? Who? Oh, I know. It reminds me of something Kim Jong Un would do. Yeah, the guy who Trump exchanges love letters with. No wonder.

  • 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
    Why don’t we just empty out the prisons? I’m sure those people have children who cried when they were taken away.
    Also, Trump didn’t do the hiring. He had an HR department for that. Hope those people got deported as well.

  • America is better than this!!!

    We should come together.

    I don't hate people for wanting a better life for their kids.

    Trump YOU could do better than this. Come on and really make America great. Not just for the majority but for the minorities as well…

    You can change this Donald…

  • William Bednarz says:

    I.C.E. said the raid was in the works for over a year – ARE YOU SAYING THESE PEOPLE WORKED THERE FOR A YEAR??…..BULLSH*T AND LIES FOLLOWING IN trump's footsteps

  • The day when judgement day comes i really hope we can explain why we treated each other the way we do …under the so call one God under one nation….the hypocrisy…..jesus have mercy on our soul because we all have some time of responsibility to the children of our future because we allowed this moron to devide us all😢😢..vote this S.O.B out

  • Richard Russell says:

    The Fourth Reich. Sad day America that has concentration camps and does what he won't allow others to do! They are Trump's slave labor! Ice Gestapo will not raid Trumps Golf Resorts that have this labor! Trump has concentration camps for children and you don't say a dame thing about this crime of humanity and it's because you are mega-corporation owned and report what the rich elite tell you to report! The only news that worse is Fox news! Depressions are caused by the rich elite to take wealth from the poor and middle class. Why don't the rich lose their wealth in a depression? 1929-1941 we had no money because of the Great Depression but soon as Japan bombed Pearl Harbor there was money everywhere! Hypocrisy is the name of the game in the US Empire! We need to bring our democracy back and be American again! We made mistakes in the past like genocide of Native Americans, slavery of the African people, and the wage slavery of the poor!

  • AMERICA IS A DISGRACE IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSE 👹 THEY SHOULD BACK OFF FROM FOREIGN INTERVENTIONS

  • my heart is breaking for those little kids. i will take one or two into my home til they get back with their parents

  • Veterans Today Network says:

    USA is a CRUEL COUNTRY! PERIOD! The world sees us. We are NOT in hiding. We used to be special. We used to be great. Now? Just another sad cruel country. Prove me wrong!

  • Since when is a "law enforcement agency" in these United States, not a social services agency. That big armoured man having no empathy for a child. Stand up to trump!

  • The American people should use their citizen arrest right to arrest Trump and his family, including Barron. Yes, Barron too. Why should only the other children suffer from his dad's cruelty. Let Barron has a taste if his dad's own medicine.

  • Daniella Gibbs Legar states here, "I feel like empathy is clearly missing from Donald Trump"…"but I worry that it is missing from a lot of Republicans…" This sums up the divide in politics as it stands today. Empathy is clearly missing in just about every decision, policy and platform that the "right' wing of politics makes. You can go through every debating point in every aspect of today's society and the conservative's view is clearly lacking empathy. Be it tax cuts, health, wages, women's rights, environment, refugees, social welfare, marriage equality, etc etc. All decisions and platforms of the Republicans and the right wing of politics in general, around the world, is based on what benefits them and their power, money, status and that of their associates.

  • Will E. Fisturgash says:

    This administration is the most heartless ever. Lyin’ Trump’s cult try to defend themselves by saying that they’re not anti-immigrant, they just think they should get their citizenship legally. I wholeheartedly agree with that sentiment but now Lyin’ Trump’s administration is making it difficult to become a citizen unless you come from money. That to me translates to not wanting immigration at all.

  • This is no difference to internment that Northern Ireland’s catholic’s could be lifted, and locked up without any crimes committed just because they wanted too. This is that type of racial discrimination which the United Nations has to take up as a crime against these children. This is torture illegal under the laws of the U.N.!

    China’s at it, Russia and UK now also. These nations are all in agreement that it’s ok to torture as permanent members, who can veto anything is brought to them. How can you make them accountable to world laws. The nations of the world need to say to them you’ll get no trade for harm your doing! The other nations have power to stop trading with them.

    This is wrong and evil to do harm to kids! No proper minded adult could do this. Only sick individuals who get a kick from it. Then go home and pretend everything is ok? Daddy or mom hasn’t been a good person today intentionally harming children you would let anyone do to you!

  • Hong Kong is protesting in the 100 thousands over an extradition bill..In America you just moan and watch the news moan..if you really cared you'd be at the gates of the detention centers in the millions..

  • It is infuriating. This President is just beyond words. And to think that he is considering re-election. Please vote to send him out.

  • Send Trump back I'm sure you'll find a port where his own family found a way into the United States unless he's an indigenous indian and that he's definitely not………

  • Why don't reporters ask him why he uses undocumentados workers, paying them miserable wages. Taking advantage of these people and now persecuting them

  • This is not America , it's not the America of 4 years ago. Trump is destroying everything America has stood for , for over 2 centuries . He has illegal immigrants working at Mar-A-Logo golf club and his other properties . Let's do a raid on Trumps properties and see what we find ??

  • republicans are why america will remain a third world shithole country. Normal people, you might as well leave because they've rigged the elections and you can't vote them out.

  • I feel for this little girl. But put the blame on her parents for coming here illegally. If they came the right way she would not be crying.

  • liberals blame everything on the president. But democratic where in the president spot 4 years ago . and Obama locked them in cages.

  • Fact check this. Mostly Lies! Run – don't walk away from the Democratic Brainwashing Propaganda Machine. Get the truth and Support Trump 2020!

  • Sooooo…..these people willingly came into the country illegally…you can't see the criminality in that???? They placed their loved ones at risk and in danger. They benefitted by working in a country that they knew was illegal! Stop defending these criminals! Your bleeding hearts need to be recalibrated! This is a country of laws, not emotion. Get over yourselves!

  • Well, if the Bezos Post says it's true, it must be. Because they would never lie or spin to try and make Trump look bad. MSNBC is pure scum.

  • MSNBC conveniently omits that most illegals use false documents and Social Security numbers so the employers don't always know they're undocumented. A lot do and should be prosecuted for it for sure.

  • Why doesn't Trump add really big fines – making them retroactive – and apply those fines to ALL businesses which cannot prove they used the methods in place for years to ensure they only hired legal immigrants? That fine would add a lot of weight to Trump's prized "deterrence" value, wouldn't it? The fines could be used to cover the cost of border installations that could handle more immigrants and refugees faster, thus making it easier for businesses to find economical labor for jobs Americans won't take.

    Trump might make our nation vulnerable to sanctions by other nations or legal entities, restricting him and his family in particular and many American businesses in general from participation in certain international banking privileges or use of ports in other countries or defaults in trade agreements that bar inhumane treatment of refugees.

    So far Trump is just picking on poor parents and abandoned children. He needs to inflict injury on the equally guilty employers, like himself, who hire illegal workers, or he will inevitably look like another Hitler and make us look like facists.

  • shadowcat 10110 says:

    Gop hypocrites dont want welfare dont want birth control but they leave a child with no loving working parent …..God knows their are many children who are abandoned by parents who are losers

  • Richie Tattersall says:

    Hiring illegal Immigrants? President Obama was SLAMMING the employers, MASSIVE fines, shutting them down and locking them up. They're ALLOT easier to track down, and it's ALLOT more effective. Donald Trump and his fools are "Claiming" they're investigating them. The laws don't work that way, charge only one of the 2 people involved in the exact same crime? NONE have been busted since Trump has been in the White House, reality? he has been doing it for decades.

  • My heart goes out to these people but living in the country 20 years and never learning the languages causes people to lose credibility. There is no way a U.S. citizen would survive in central or south america not speaking Spanish for 20 years.

  • Donald Trump… how could the greatest nation on earth elect such an utterly disgusting, mean and vicious person for president?

  • Correction Codes says:

    please tell me.. please… if 100 people came into YOUR house. Uninvited, ate all your food. Slep in your bed and sucked up all your electricity then left and went to the neighbors house to do the same after they took everything and did pay.. wtf would you do? you dumb fukin morons…

  • Meanwhile… It is estimated that between 65 to 75,000 Canadians are living in the US illegally. When are they going after Them Crazy Cannucks? ;o)

  • DT doesn't have any constructive skills as a good LEADERSHIP he's unfit for the Presidency……..he don't even know how to use the symphatic way, not only that but majority of the people they need more approaches are particularly attractive…..

  • Horses are cool says:

    Trump has no control over people who work for company’s that Trump hires to maintenance, it’s the same as you knowing weather the guy who’s changein your oil at the dealership is here legally you have no way of knowing that.

  • Dennis Anderson says:

    These undocumented workers took their children to work with them. You stupid forks these people are illegal, not undocumented. I personally have had enough of you cork sucking illegals. So what if you have only been here 5 minutes or skated our laws 25 years? You`re here illegally. Get out before Americans kick your hazzes out. You are criminals. We can show you some heart when you show us some documentation. We are a country of laws. Come into our country the right way. We can`t afford you. If I tried the same thing on the other side of the border I would be in jail. So f–k all of you. As for the children blame daddy. This is America and we have borders and a constitution.

  • Yet ,his daughter and so in law steal.. in the white house without a clearance hmmmm…. and where are those papers about that first lady of his remembered they were going to show .

  • Georganna Smaltz says:

    My God!!! Trump is a living IMP of the DEVIL!!!!!!!👹👺☠ COME ON REPUBLICANS, GET TRUMP OUT OF ALL OF OUR WHITE HOUSE!!!

  • IN OUR COUNTRY TODAY EVERYTHING IS LEGAL AND OKAY IF SOMEONE HAS BIG BUCKS. THE LEGAL SYSTEM, TOUGH LAWS, AND INCARCERATION ARE JUST FOR POOR PEOPLE WITH PROBLEMS. BEING RICH AND OWING MILLIONS IN UNPAID TAXES IS IGNORED (TOO MUCH EFFORT TO COLLECT) WHILE LOW TO MIDDLE INCOME PEOPLE ARE TERRORIZED BY IRS WITH PRIVATE COLLECTION AGENCIES FOR A FEW HUNDRED DOLLARS. VERY FAIR

  • MSNBC never reports rocket man is not at war with America. President Donald Trump is still working on a wall. President Donald Trump has a great economy. President Donald Trump has a great military.
    President Donald Trump is President Donald Trump does not have Russia collusion it was a hoax bought and paid for by nbc to get the fake news to the American people

  • its disgusting trump your a disgrace your immigration laws are a disgrace and the sooner the better off everyone will be rid of you
