Author Since: Mar 11, 2019

  1. Liberals have amnesia when their own leaders commit the same act. Notice not one liberal says " we need to change laws and loopholes"
    Obama-Jeb Johnson " we expanded the family separation. We had no choice. We can't catch and release"

  2. Hey Rachel the clam shmacker Maddow..majority of those pictures of immigrant children are from 2014..you imbecile!

  3. Serious question, I read that this has been going on for years, not just Trump. (Im not pro-Trump, at all) Is it true?

  4. Congressman Elijah Cummings marched with MLK, he is the most important person in congress along with warren and sanders

  5. Check at your own local county jails, and you will find kids separated from their parents all the time.
    This separation of kids from parents happens often when the parents are on drugs and put into a facility…. Are you all unaware of what is going on and has been going on in your communities for as long as this country has existed????

  6. Can't we deport Stephen Miller back to Transylvania or somewhere on those lines??? He can;t possibly be from here…

  7. WAIT A MINUTE, RACHEL. YOU (THE DEMOCRATS) GAVE BARACK OBAMA THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE FOR BOMBING SYRIA AND KILLING THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT CHILDREN, AFTER MADELINE ALBRIGHT SAID IT WAS "WORTH IT" TO SLAUGHTER 500,000 CHILDREN IN IRAQ, AND NOW YOUR CRITICIZING TRUMP FOR ACTUALLY DOING SOMETHING ABOUT OUR BROKEN POLICY ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION?? AM I MISSING SOMETHING HERE??

  8. If you don't want Open Borders then you are racist. Why should you have the right to discriminate against who comes here???? #OpenBorderDemocrats

  9. Good thing Trump fixed the problem Clinton, Bush, and Obama had. Funny nobody complained when the other presidents followed the law, only when Trump was obeying the law.

  10. THE REAL PROBLEM IS THAT THE MAJORITY OF THE MSM OUTLETS REPRESENTING THE MINORITY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
    IN A SLEEZY DECEIVING WAY.
    LETS NOT FORGET THE FIRST WHO HELD TO BE ACCOUNTABLE ARE THE PARENTS. THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE WHEN THEY BRING THEIR CHILDREN IN SUCH SITUATION. THEY CAN  EASILY AVOID THIS PROBLEM, LIKE MANY OTHER PEOPLE WHICH  SEEKS FOR ASYLUM. JUST TRAVEL TO A OFFICIAL PORT OF ENTRY. PROBLEM SOLVED SIMPLE. I JUST WONDER HOW MANY OF THESE FUGITIVES ASK IN MEXICO FOR ASYLUM INSTEAD TO TRAVEL ANOTHER 2000 MILES WITH ALL ADDITIONAL RISK FOR THEIR CHILDREN.

  11. So you want the kids to sit in jail with their criminal parents? Or be separated from their criminal parents and be taken care of by better people?

  12. Illegal immigration has nothing to do with Black Americans issues. This is not our fight they have been taking our kids out of our homes for years. Black people wake up they are fighting for more people to come into this country to keep you at the bottom of the the barrel. This kids may have some trauma and it's sad but they will recover.

  13. Your doing and thinking right under Gods blue sky but you dont go to him for light .. "Jesus lives" but this saying is a taking way to lightly

  14. Funny how no liberal or Democrat politician was upset when Obama did the same thing. You idiots, this has been going on since 2014 and not a peep from ya'll. What hypocracy !!

  15. As per my understanding, Trump is taking action on ILLEGAL immigrants which is totally fine. So what is the fuss in the media?

  16. When you blink a lot it means your lying (or on drugs). Should we count how many times Rachel blinks?

  17. OK maybe the Hussain immigration policy was marginally more humane viz child separation than Trumps – maybe less children separated but cages did exist. Even liberal spokespeople admit some adult immigrants used the Hussain more humane policy to join children with other non related families to avoid deportation at the border, then were released into the country, never to return to court to given asylum or not. CATCH & RELEASE: this has allowed not just children but violent gangs like MS13, drug runners and violent criminals to be released into society. Demonstrators forget this, THEY DEMONSTRATE THEY CARE NOTHING FOR CITIZENS WHO HAVE SUFFERED THE LOSS OF A LOVED ONE AT THE HANDS OF AN ILLEGAL. THEY CARE NOTHING THAT DANGEROUS DRUGS FLOOD THE COUNTRY>

  18. Please God forgive those who support criminal activities based on their political agendas and turn away from American citizens as Judas once turned his back on you….Amen!!!!

  19. Not even Trump's policy Obama separated kids from families as well liberals hate a republican in office and would run this huge hate campaign on anyone republican that won it just so happens to be Trump.

  20. These ladies are brave to stand up for what they believe in…these ladies give other's incentive to do something too. Thanks everyone for their bravery, and dedication. That's America!! Rep E. Cummings is emotional behind children being separated from their parents.

  21. usa judges china for human rights violtions, what kind of human rights is this policy? they dont even do this in China

  22. Grew up in immigrant and integrated neighborhood in Boston. Richest experience of my life. Knew survivors of Nazi concentration camps.

  23. But what do we do with the child while the deportation process proceeds? Put the child in jail as well? An ICE Holding Facility is not a day care center. It is a detention facility. It's not a very simple answer. It's messy.

  24. "THESE ARE THE TIMES THAT TRYS MEN SOUL"

    "THESE are the times that try men's souls…" words from the initial AMERICAN CRISIS by the first American Patriot, Mr. Thomas Paine, who essentially started this nation into being, and I believe, the first to uttered and penned the name: The United States of America. Consider this, then should not as,"we the people" of what almost all pundits are boasting "the greatest nation" be addressing this NOW AMERICAN CRISIS rightfully and morally before it too late?

    IT IS TIME NOW, "WE" AS A NATION, "THE PEOPLE," GET INVOLVE TO HELP WITH THE IMMEDIATE RESOLUTION TO GET THESE INHUMANE "SEPARATED" CHILDREN BACK TO THEIR RESPECTED FAMILIES! NOW!

    NOW MADAM Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, DID NOT OTHER PEOPLE OF NATIONS IN THE PAST FOLLOW AND DO THEIR "LAWFUL" DUTY OR THE LAW OF THEIR LEADER, I.E. THE FUROR'S, OVER THE RIGHTS OF OTHER PEOPLE?

    ENOUGH WITH THE PARTISAN DOUBLE SPEAK, WAS THE SEPARATION NOT EXECUTED BY OUR IMMORAL WANNABE FUROR AND IMPLEMENTED BY HIS HENCHMEN?

  25. We seriously need to stop calling this child separation, and call it what it really is KIDNAPPING. When you take someone's child without the intention of giving the child back its called KIDNAPPING. State sponsored kidnapping in America!!? The fact that any human being could support this let alone Congress, is disturbing. Evil is real and it's right in our face. Please call this what it is, and for the love of all that is good please vote!

  26. I was doing research on this and it seems they only seperate the children if they are caught coming over the border illegally. I don't think this man know this. He never mentions it at all.

  27. Rachel Madcow should try and get some real tears next time, it would make the "break down" feel more real. But great way to end the show HAHAHAHAHA

  28. Kim Jong Unabomber is developing and building a new ICBM that will be capable of carrying a miniturized nuclear weapon, and will reportedly be capable of reaching Washington, D.C. One can only hope. Its called IRONY.

  29. Donald Trump cruel to migrant children. Obama too. Clinton as well. Woah, this has been going on forever and it isn't new?

  30. You cupcakes do realize that when american parents commit federal offenses their children are separated from them right?
    Do you cry foul everytime a kid enters the system?
    Obama allowed people to do something illegal and Trump sucks because we are a country governed by the rule of law. Shame on Obama for usurping his authority and doing this to families.
    Do you monetarily sponsor immigrants or let them live with you? If not drink a tall glass of STFU!!!

  31. Then I am one proud panzy ! I didn't want open boarders before but if those are the choices, hurting innocent children or an open boarder than swing open the gates! I am in the process of adopting a central American child or adult so they can be allowed in. We have alternatives to use if we are just creative.

  32. My daughter went on a cruise with her aunt to Mexico, she is 15 and had no ID, SHE HAD A GREAT TIME and didn't spend a minute in a cage.

  33. You guys are lost and believe everything fake news tells you those pictures are from 2014….why dont you guys talk about that!!

  34. Trump, Miller and Sessions relish in other people's misery. They are repulsive and shouldn't be considered human. More like Neanderthals. Get out of my house!!! If Trump wants a big parade in his honor, all he needs to do is resign.

  35. Thank God the states are saying no. I would love to take water and food to the refugees. I was told I would be jailed. I can not vote from jail.

  36. Thousands of homeless Children sleep in cages, and boxes, and trunks, and tents, and worse in every major city on the West Coast of the USA. The Lefts primary focus IS DEFINITELY NOT on the lower middle class citizens or their children. It is importing new voters for the Democratic party.

  37. I am so sorry for all my Central American countrymen trying to cross the border. But actually I don't really blame Trump for this. I blame all the corrupt governments that we have and had had for a long time.

  38. a migrant is someone who moves from state to state, like dust bowl refugees in the 1930s who went to California. when you cross international borders illegally, you are a criminal. sorry msnbc.

  39. Sorry.. but Im with Trump on this one…  We have too many people moving in from all those countries above Mexico flooding in here  with no papers and expecting a WELCOME sigh to be here for them… no one has tried to keep this country from an VAST INVASTION… but Trump.. Obama didn't give a rip.. he was well protected … so why should he worry… Besides.. NOTHING was ever done to Obama or his MAN WIFE for STEALING their Social Security NUMBERS from two people in Ohio… he should be in PRISON now.. if that had of been me.. I assure you I wouldn't be typing this now..

  40. Why don't!cha just call Trump… de MAD GUY…. one who has no one on his side… one who has tried to do right by this country and improve it… YA were too used to LOSER OBAMA who was the THIEF OF BAGDAD…  and he got away with it too… Shame on U…

  41. Why don't they wait for an INVITATION before they start crossing the border???… I would hate to know I had jillions swarming my house expecting me to feed, cloth and school them and their 15 kids..

  42. Democrats want to change USA from a country into a open transit area, solely for democrat politicians indefinite domination, that is why Democrats want Open Border, by decriminalizing unauthorized border crossing, by using "children" as an excuse with nonsense rhetoric such as "ripping babies from mothers"!!! like that is legal !!!

  43. The reason we can't have Mass illegal immigration is because they won't " learn to be American". No we will learn there ways and then we become like them in a couple generations. There running from there own for a reason. Has nothing to do with race. It's about one Nation under God doing things his way. It's all over the Bible but people like Rachel here hate the Bible obviously

  44. Rachel Maddow is despicable. Using fake tears to trigger people's ignorance of the truth. She does not care about these children at all. If she did she would tell the truth about the story. She would have cried when Obama supported the same policy (Trump inherited it from Obama.) Maddow is a piece of garbage human being. The parents of these children are to blame, no one else!

  45. Where were you when Obama was “separating kids from their parents”. You are so transparent. Oh right, you’re all just hearing about this now? You have no credibility!

  46. THIS WOMAN and all take news are such LIARS !
    They should all beheld in prison for their down right lies !
    Go bankrupt too ! May ALL you came NEWS get a too does it
    Heartache from all these illegals see how you like it !

  47. Did anyone cry when Obama was separating babies from their mom's??? Did the media even cover that at all?? Does anyone care that babies are sold in South America for the purpose of being used to gain immigration status when crossing the US border??

  48. All clips below are from 2014:

  49. McClatchy: Yes, Obama separated families at the border, too
    https://www.gop.com/mcclatchy-yes-obama-separated-families-at-the-border-too/

  50. You know Donald Trump NEEDS to shut his mouth he is making it real hard for us and how is he going to say Democrats the proplem but look at yourslef for a moment he worry about other people he thinks that if you are the "President" you change laws no it does not because you got to put your foot down on the people!

  51. More fake news to buy into!!! What kind of parent's when leave their children at a border anyway !! American's can't even discipline there chilren or look at them crossed eye'd or they will go to jail….but they can drag their kid's through the wild and use them as shields. Look around American.. they seen to be doing better than alot of American's and the veteran's the fought for this country. ( homeless in their own back yard!!) You think they would let American's in their backyard without WAR!! The Demon (craps) are fishing for it!! It's by design ppl!!

  52. When the leader of the gov abuses his power and destroys the principle of the country, people rise up and get rid of him without waiting for the political machinery because it's corrupt. Do you have the guts to do what's right?

  53. August 21, 2019. Child separation still taking place .. moral outrage did not dissuade the immoral Trump Administration. It only made them more disgustingly resolute in their abject cruelty.

  54. We working class we working 4 to5jobs to support our family .now who's supporting the fund for these children that being hostage from our government.we work we can't even have good health care for our family.now we are so busy carcirated kids.keep them away from their family.we let these children in at the first place now we create a bigger problem mental psych and physical.I guess we the working poor will die working.
