    This administration should be charged with breaking HUMANITARIAN laws and charges should be leveled.

  • DokktorDeth Post author

    it's glaringly evident that Trump is a sociopath with little or no regard for his fellow human beings, outside of his relatively small circle of family and lickspittle sycophants.

  • Rory Gay Post author

    Trump already declared an emergency at the border. There's the money

  • Bill Howden Post author

    Why has not anyone rescued these kids? Are you telling me we would free Jews from ghettos, but not babies from jail?

  • Rory Gay Post author

    Trump needs to blame Hillary here. After all, those 33,000 missing emails were to people south of the border inviting them to invade the USA. Everybody knows that.

  • Susan McEwen Post author

    The apathy of this administration is incredibly difficult to witness. These children are truly innocent. This from those that oppose abortion.. call in the UN.

  • Diane Czir Post author

    What year are these picture from? I know when Barry was President I seen picture of children in cages on the ground sleeping….This is why MSNBC is call Fake News…..

  • John Dwyer Post author

    The disconnect from reality is just shocking. To actually argue in front of a judge that children who have been stolen from their parents don't need blankets, soap, toothbrushes and other essentials of life like SOME sort of mattress, is inhuman. Jesus would spit on Mike Pence and I'd sure like to be there if God ever passed judgement on Trump, except, I think I'd have to wear a fire proof suit to watch, what would be the most entertaining Trump moment, ever.

  • John Dwyer Post author

    I think the judge should have held that lawyer in contempt and had her sent to jail and order that she be put into a chain link dog kennel out in the middle of the floor so that she has no privacy and no; bed, no mattress, no blanket, no soap, no toothpaste or tooth brush and wait for the administration to complain about her treatment.

  • Max Ray Post author

    Lying democunt.

  • Jeffrey Binder Post author

    Oh come on , you all (MSNBC, CNN and the Democrats) said there is no crisis at the border, when did it change ? Maybe growing up in the 60's made me nuts but does anyone remember taking responsibility for your actions or inaction ? Don't break into a country illegally, don't drag small children on a long dangerous trip and if you want to welcome them with open arms, fund the people that have to care for them.

    Hey MSNBC .. this is the border crisis which you said was MANUFACTURED and you then supported the Dems to BLOCK BORDER FUNDING BILLS. You have BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS and so do your political hack pundits. Shame on you all, you are disgusting.

  • Helen ❤️ Post author

    The fact that they went to court to deprive a toothbrush, soap and a blanket from a child is deplorable.

    trump believes his own bull… the conman has conned himself…

  • john kindon Post author

    I feel sorry if that woman at court has kids of her own i wonder if they wonder around covered in crap and mucus and have no tooth brushes the way she said MAYBE means she does not value Children's rights or anybody's right's for that matter,
    She is treating those poor kids like criminals like trump said there murders and rapists and gang members my god i didn't know you could join a gang at 6 months old and be a murderer but they obviously believe all of trump's hype,
    Its disgraceful and it shows even the guards dont give a toss about these kids or else they would help those poor children they are just as guilty as trump for following his sick orders just like the Nazis in the 2nd world war followed hitler and did his bidding so are these guards, And what happened to them? They got hung or life in prison.
    People in the republican party need to learn to say the words NO MORE MR TRUMP i will not follow your crazy orders.

  • golfo909 Post author

    We on the outside of the USA, who are from countries which are your closest allies, are appalled at what you are letting Trump get away with and what he is turning your great country into!!! Its mind boggling why you have not Impeached him yet!!!

    Don't know if anyone else noticed but trump tweeted: "Boring" after the candidates talked about the death of the 24 year old father and his 23 month old daughter. This is the leader of the free world… young people dying is boring and doesn't provide enough entertainment for the reality tv star.

  • Cosmo Kwong Post author

    They need more than toothbrushes, soap and blankets, this ridiculous. Healthcare ( including the basics) is important for the wellbeing of any human & children especially.

  • bluegold21 Post author

    How did a young father and his daughter drown crossing 20meters of a river that thousands had crossed safely before? How did it take so long for them to be seen considering you have all those confederate speaking gun toting red necks constantly patrolling. Sounds like someone either watched them die or helped the process along!?

  • bluegold21 Post author

    This is climate change and the actions of petrochemical companies ravaging South American culture and environment. And Trump is never going to admit to that thus the issue will never be resolved. Trump and his lackeys must be liquidated or things will become more horrific.

  • Lucky Sport Post author

    Hahahaha, ya’ll worried about those illegals while black people begging for clean water in Flint and better housing, schools in their neighborhood. Black people, you are now a 3rd class citizen in America.

  • Christopher Wharton Post author

    This is what the third world is like. It's chaotic and dirty. Everyone is sick and everyone is violent and stupid and prone to crime and violence. Get used to it America, this is the future. When you invite central America into the US the US becomes central America. Get your sombreros amigos!

    Don't say it doesn't work as a deterrent, the situation in the US is getting dangerously close to what they're fleeing from. If it gets any worse people will flee the US to get to those countries.

    If Trump skips one golf trip there is enough money saved to support housing, clothing, feeding, and medical care for ALL migrants at the border.

  • Rosalina Ayala Post author

    They moved them to another place that was just as bad.Meanwhile the american taxpayer is paying 750 dollars a day per kid to run these camps. The people running the camps are friends of Trump and are making bank on these kids by not feeding them and not allowing them to bathe.

    1) Current conditions are better than any other situation in any of their lives for 6 generations back
    2) Mexican children have to be beaten to take a bath and brush their teeth , there is no chance of volunteers or cooperation.
    3) If you do not like it, go back to where you came from.

    The face of America. Talking heads discussing whose to blame and where the money will come from as children still locked in cages with no beds or basic necessities. Even citizens who bought toothpaste and soap and dropped it off at the facilities, see it sitting there outside a week later. Americans have gotten to the point where not even the simplest problems can be resolved. Torturing children for months on end shows the true America.

    Where are the Trump supporters on this inhumane treatment. See the clip on the courtroom. HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT THIS. Think!!! If this administration had it's way it would be second to N. Korea towards anyone who questioned it. My GOD.

  • DEAF CHIHUAHUA Post author

    The Democrats cut the funding and beds and then they blame Trump and Republicans and spread lies and propaganda. So typical of the Dems!!!!

  • DEAF CHIHUAHUA Post author

    I love how they edit the video to make it look like the Trump administration is at fault!!! In a bill 6 months ago; the Democrats restricted extra funding and beds for the illegals!!! They created this problem and then blame Trump for it. Just more lies and propaganda from MSNBC!!!!

  • DEAF CHIHUAHUA Post author

    First of all; we have to separate trafficked children from people that are NOT their parents. These children are trafficked by the thousands. That's how many children that are being trafficked! Secondly; YES….he did inherit separation from Obama!! That was the LAW before Trump. This guy is such a LIAR!!!!

  • DEAF CHIHUAHUA Post author

    The numbers of families coming are caused by the Democrats who have dangled a carrot telling them : Risk your life and come to America where we will give you free this and free that!!! All you have to do is to have a child with you and our doors are OPEN!!! Any death of an immigrant is on the hands of the Democrats!!

    This nation, and the whole world is being judged! Times up for baby killers. "Whoever harms one of these little ones, it would be better that they have a stone put around their neck, and be thrown into the sea" (Jesus Christ). Russia is the instrument of Gods punishment. If we do not pray every day(ROSARY) for its conversion, Russia will continue to spread its errors throughout the world, as Our Lady of Fatima has said. Satan is the father of lies, and the father of all liars(Trump). The Son Of Man is coming again, and His banner will say "Faithful And True". Lift your head , for your salvation(or destruction) is at hand! Love, Wisdom

    I was pleased to hear several Dems at the debate bring up the fact of USA's responsibility for creating chaos in Central America. The doctrine of Manifest Destiny by itself is a White supremacist declaration. Don the con is just the latest symptom of the deadly disease of imperialism.

    More outrageous lies from Democrats and their media supporters. Immigration attorneys are biased. They are the ones victimizing children and adults illegally entering the U.S. They thrive on exaggeration, discomfort and extending discomfort. Democrats have repeatedly refused to fund any response to the border crisis. Only until Trump embarrassed them, did they finally fund. All the Democrats have funded from various sources is encouraging, helping and trafficking hundreds of thousands of illegals.

    Morning, I'm done with these settlers disregard of normal conditions enflicked upon the children and families attempt to enter USA just like when network said yes during Italian, Irish, Polish, plus many more had even money to restart their lives in USA, shame to this trump guy, he is just a carnival Barker. jt

    The argument that people are not fleing due to crime seem stupid. The 12 first cities on the list of higehest murder rates is found in Latin America. If you list the 50 cities with the highest murder rate 43 is from Latin America.

    So these children,some as young as two,are being kept in cages, without adult care, with out beds, pillows ,blankets, soap towells tooth brushes. These children have commited no crime, but are treated worse than prisoners. They are housed in camps, that are being run for profit. Was it over 700 dollars ,per child per week? And they don't want to provide anything? It beggars belief that this is allowed in a so-called civilized country. If it happened any where else, the u.s.a. would be protesting at the u.n.
