What the fuck, my parents were taken away when I was 13 bc of a mis-filed visa. I was lucky to have family to support me. God where you at we need some intervention here, I can't stop thinking about it

Hasn't this separation of families been going on for longer than 10 years? That is what i heard atleast. And if so, why was it no problem under Obama?

Republican: Mexico is a shithole. Liberal: That's offensive, it's a great country! Republican: Okay, so people are safe there. Liberal: We can't make people wait weeks there, they are persecuted asylum seekers! ... Get that straight pls. Either Mexico is fine to stay in for a while or it's a shithole everyone needs to leave immedeately. Hint - A shithole is a shithole because of the people living there.

To be clear : I completely oppose the concept of family seperation. However, the video with the little kid is not a valid argument. We as a people may find this clip sad because of the things tis kid said to his mother. But if you change the context the whole story changes. For instance : try telling a kid they can't join a friend to go to disneyworld. You might get the exact same reaction. I'm just trying to say that this clip (however sad it may be and it is) is no proof of psychological damage.

u know exactly taht 99% + of them dont are real asylum people - they are just looking for a better life... whats absolutly ok... but its also absolutly ok if usa citizens dont wanna pay that.. i am also looking for a better life and to have a house like john oliver - and john? when u will show me my rooms ? ;) oh never.. surprise surprise... sry bout my english - i m from EU and i dont ever been to US.. but i quite sure u understand - eaven when its no perfect english ;) and PS: dont act like a 12 year old oliver. u know exactly what all this is about.. u are to clever to dont understand the problem with all this... and PPS: like i told u - i am from EU - my english is quite ok and i have over 100 000 dollar on my bank account. i would like to move to USA :) but guess what - i am not allowed ;) check u r migration laws ;) it would no problem to let one in like me.. cause i have money and i dont make any problems.. profit for USA. but USA migration law says - eaven I am not much enough profit ;) sad - in my case wrong i think but i accept it - ITS YOUR country and YOU make the rules.. world and people are egostic - and thats OK! but be fucking true! why u allways try to play the super nice guy!??? u arent john? you would never sahre your house with me so why u fuxx think its the most normal thing in the world your naigbours HAVE to share THEIR country?

In a country where someone can successfully sue millions of compensation from a big corporation over a spillt hot coffee, how much damage should an illegaly seperated family, which caused so much trauma to the child, be awarded? The standing of the US has become rock-bottom.

Kids here are forced into family separation. It's normal in our society. Look up divorced. Look up abandoned children. Worry about your front yard before slinging mud about stuff in your neighbors yard. The reality is, is that life is being cruel and titty babies like the man in this show never experienced it. Quite whining about not your life and mind your business. They will survive just like me. Bunch of cry babies.

Coming from an American...this is a disgrace. We don't deserve to be called the greatest country in the world. We're not. No nation that forcefully traumatizes children is eligible for that title. And I hate it. Because the thing is....there are so many good people in this country who accept people no matter their race, sexuality, gender identity, or birthplace. There are so many amazing people who work to build a better future for this country...and the administration we get ends up being...THIS. I'm an optimist at heart. I can't believe that this is it. Things are going to change. But the thing is...we have to MAKE them change. Because until then...THIS is what America stands for

The FACTS and HISTORY of this policy - Trump did not make this law. He chose to enforce immigration laws. Here is the history of the policy - which is NOT NEW. Trump released 100,000 immigrants - including 37,000 minors when he first took office from Obama. The families being deported can take their kids back with them. Its THEIR decision. Read this.....

"family separation is the law" So were the Nuremberg Laws. So was Japanese internment. Being law doesn't automatically mean it's okay.
007kingifrit Vor 15 Stunden
you can start by realizing that this is propaganda and not true; it doesn't cover both sides of the argument fairly family separation is the law, as laid out by the 9th district court of appeals 2016 ruling, no politician put this law intoe ffecdt

Trump is right it is an invasion. Hitler sent spies into other countries to find people who could be sympathetic tot the cause. Also give him places where the military bases were and other important information. An invasion either done by a military or just by people is still an invasion.

we need hot shots in california - badly. Perhaps we should go to the border - and offer citizenship to anyone who can speak english and wants to be a hot shot - sign a contract for work for the next 10 years - and grant citizenship in exchange. its a win win. (in a dangerous job such as fire fighting - english needs to be spoken ) There are other careers that have desparate shortages - hot shots are one. ANYONE WANT TO BE A HOTSHOT and CAN SPEAK ENGLISH?? - they should be offered citizenship and admitted promptly.

I thought we shoved most of these British snobs out eons ago with bayonets up their asses. Evidently we missed this obnoxious prick. You would be of use yammering in Britain. You could help with the Brexit with your pompous yap flapping across the pond. Stay where you belong if you don't want your kids in US custody. They complain about being separated from your kids. Your kids are your responsibility, you dump them on US we'll do as we please. You don't like it? Take a hike. Pay for your own Big Macs.
