  1. Keep in mind, these are just the ones they were actually able to reunite, it's such a sh*t show there are who knows how many who got shoved into the adoption system.

  2. I don't understand why they need to be locked up in cages so tightly…
    Can't they take an old/disused building, and create a few acres of land around it, put up fences to keep them in the compound,
    and then leave them to roam freely inside… they can go inside, outside, walk, run around and play soccer etc…
    it's not perfect but way better than having 80 kids locked in a cage the size of a tenniscourt…

  3. MSNBCannibals want them children with their fake parents for some reason.. Could it have something to do with CHILD SACRIFICE rituals?? I think so!! Trump aint letting MSNBCannibals have iT! Trump is the best president EVER!! #DownWithMSNBCannibalNews !

  4. Fake Lying news MSNBC made about 10 videos of the Same Lying videos. I guess when CHILDREN from America get SEPARATED FROM THERE PARENTS AFTER THEY GET ARRESTED BECAUSE THEY CANT GO TO JAIL WITH THEM SO THERE SEPARATED FROM THERE REAL PARENTS, I'LLEGAL KIDS ARE SEPARATED FROM THERE TRAFFICKERS BOUGHT AND PAID FOR.LYING FAKE NEWS MSNBC THE TRUE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE

  5. THERE FREE TO LEAVE ANYTIME THEY WANT IF ITS SO BAD WHY ARE THEY ALL STAYING HAH LYING LAWRENCE BECAUSE THEY HAVE IT MADE,TV, VIDEOS,PLENTY OF FOOD CLOTHING,SHOWERS, NINTENDO 64, BASKETBALL SOCCER AIRCONDITION MOVIES MAN IF ONLY THE THOUSANDS OF HOMELESS AMERICAN CITIZENS AND FAMILIES COULD LIVE WHERE THE I'LLEGALS LIVE AND HAVE IT MADE IN THE SHADE. DISGRACEFUL OUR HOMELESS AMERICAN CITIZENS AND FAMILIES ARE FORGOTTEN .

  6. It will be important to watch the inspectors…….Trump is the kind of guy to reach out and hurt the people who criticize him…..joe

  7. NICE CAGES THE OBAMA ADMINSTRATION BUILT AND I BET THE THOUSANDS OF HOMELESS AMERICAN CITIZENS AND FAMILIES LIVING IN THE STREETS AND SIDEWALKS IN DEMOCRAT RUN DISTRICTS WOULD LOVE TO BE IN THOSE DETENTION CENTERS WITH AIR CONDITION TV,SHOWERS,PLENTY OF FOOD, CLOTHING,SNACKS,TV, MOVIES NINTENDO 64 BASKETBALL SOCCER NICE WARM COMFORTABLE BEDS,THE I'LLEGALS HERE ILLEGALLY ARE NOT SLEEPING ON THE SIDEWALKS AND STREETS NO THEY HAVE IT MADE IN THE SHADE AND THERE NOT LEAVING ANYTIME SOON WHY WOULD THEY WHEN WE THE AMERICAN CITIZENS ARE PAYING FOR THEM AND MILLIONS MORE THRUOUT AMERICA.

  8. When will this monster be stopped?! Will he EVER be held accountable for his cruel, inhumane and sadistic acts against, not just adults, but also countless young children?! Isn’t there someone, ANYONE, in the entire world that can be courageous and decent enough, to call this man out, and have him charged with Acts Against Humanity?

  9. Evangelic Christians support Trump and his policies. Those brown people on our border are Christian.
    American Evangelical Christians support an adulterer, that bears false witness with every breath. But ignore or persecute Christians fleeing oppression. I am not Christian, but know the text well.

    “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, "I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

    “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

    “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”

  10. i suppose that trump is begetting his failed childhood onto a new generation of children, abit like a failed father figure …….abit like a failed messiah "Cry little children and come onto me , i shall show you the way , to the biggest , the best , way of unreality , where black is white and down is up" 🙁

  11. PTSD . . . A perfectly NORMAL reaction. And, the damage will be a burden on America: financially, politically, historically; and it will form the character, nature and face of America, for generations . . . This is NOT us, America? It MUST be stopped . . .

  12. There's another byproduct that will come from these children being interned by our corrupt government and Trump and the American people better start waking up and looking at this because they are sowing the seeds for our future. These children will grow up to become adults and they will have such hatred for the United States and democracy resulting in them possibly becoming the new terrorist of our planet and will attack us and others for not helping them during their childhood. America this is not a laughing matter or something you could just push aside we are sowing the seeds of our future and our destruction because of it. We are trying to defend our country against terrorism and this is not how you defend a country against terrorism this is how you turn the country into something that Nazi Germany was in the past and that is exactly what we are doing. Trump is the modern-day Hitler and our border security is slowly becoming the new SS of America. This cannot go on anymore and we must put a stop to it before it is too late.

  13. America should be hanging it's head in shame. This is mass cruelty plain and simple. I wish Trump and his henchmen nothing but heartache and personal pain.

  14. D.D.T., Demagogue DEATH tRump, Pesticide of America…does NOT care, has NO empathy or compassion…AND is Creating future terrorists if all of these children do not receive NEEDED Care & EVEN THEN, may not work.

  15. Good Job Race-Baiter O'Donnell. Your cameras must have been broke during the Obama administration- you know, when Obama was putting children in cages. You low life POS

  16. PTSD is often a life-long serious and painful disability that no victim deserves. In many cases, victims contemplate suicide. I speak from painful experience of it.

  17. OMG! I just listen to a report a few minutes ago from this channel saying that Trump is still separating families. Now you're telling me the gov't struggle trying to unite families.

    So which is it? Which report should I trust?

  18. As soon as the money runs out, as soon as nobody is looking, they are going to lock the doors and walk away. They are going to let them all die of thirst in cages if we don’t force them to free these captive people.

    Death is more convenient for them, more convenient than dealing with lifetimes of lawsuits from the living aggrieved.

  19. trump needs to be held accountable!!!! This is clearly mental child abuse! We need to get ALL of these children reunited with their families!!!

  20. The World: Trump, Sessions, Miller and Nielsen did this "Zero Tolerance" kidnapping and abuse secretly without the knowledge or approval of the American Congress or the people. We are as horrified as you. Help!!!

  21. forget about getting care, give them back to their parents.  what kind of people are you, you should be locked up.

  22. WHERE IS THE F**KING CHURCH?
    Just like $5 Dollar Whores, just taking money every Sunday.
    STOP GIVING MONEY TO THE DISGUSTING CHURCH!!!

  23. Committing a crime gets you separated from your kids. Your kids are terrified if you commit a crime in the united states because they are separated from YOU.

  24. This is a direct quote from a book by John Grisham published in 2014 called “The Rooster Bar”. Democratic leadership wants the American people to believe that the Trump Administration has caused the immigration problem. If you read this, the Obama Administration had a very big part in it.
    “According to the Post, Immigration and Customs Enforcement maintains fifteen detention centers around the country and on any given day there are 35,000 people in custody. Last year ICE detained over 400,000 undocumented workers and deported about the same number, at a cost of over $20,000 per deportee. The entire detention system eats over $2 billion a year. It’s the largest immigrant detention system in the world. In addition to the fifteen ICE facilities, the Feds contract with hundreds of county jails, juvenile detention centers, and state prisons to house their detainees, at a cost of about 150 bucks a day per person, 350 for a family. Two-thirds of all facilities are run by private companies. The more bodies they have, the more money they make. Homeland Security, which ICE answers to, has a quota, one mandated by Congress. No other law enforcement agency operates on a quota system.”
    Where was this Watchdog then?

  25. 2,700, 000 kids have a parent in prison. 400,000 kids are in foster care, 765,000 kids are separated from their military parents, not knowing if they will ever see them again, but the media focuses on the 2000 kids who are temporarily separated from their illegal immigrant parents who chose to put them in this situation. 1900 children have been separated from their parents under Trump, and the media is in a frenzy. 89,000 were separated at the border from their parents under obama and the media was dead silent. What a double standard, it is all about making all of you HATE our president. Russia was all a bunch of lies, but they successfully brainwashed most of you here to hate trump based on nothing but lies and they are doing it again.

  26. Nancy, have you done anything for these Family's? No! Would you like to be CAGED? Yet again no Statement from you! How can you Sleep? 😧
