DHS Directing FEMA To Southern Border Amid Influx Of Unaccompanied Migrant Children | MSNBC 1


Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is directing FEMA to assist with the increase of unaccompanied migrant children at the border for the next 90 days. NBC News correspondent and author of “Separated” Jacob Soboroff joins MSNBC’s host of "American Voices" Alicia Menendez to discuss the move by DHS. And in Soboroff’s visit to Mexico, he reports that despite Republican leaders accusing the Biden Administration of opening borders, it’s still a difficult process for adult asylum seekers to get into the country.» Subscribe to MSNBC:

  1. Democrats like to use the term migrants. As if they are birds or butterflies that migrate every year for mating. If you’re going to allow entry for “humanitarian” reasons, do it right. Not based on your virtue signaling.

      @zu0832 if we got rid of all the illegals, american companies would be forced to pay american workers. News flash, Americans used to do these jobs but then the companies discovered they could pay illegals less money. I don’t know your age, but I’m in my 60s and I remember a time when landscaping was done by children. American children. Illegal immigration hurts american workers and helps corporations. What’s really sad is the people it hurts the most are low income families… you know, the ones the democrats swear they care so much about… Every 4 years anyway.

    • @Whats MyName you’re not getting the point. Instead, you’re using these poor people to justify more of your virtue signaling while democrat policies encourages trekking thousands of miles for relief. Do it right. I’m not arguing against immigration. Im.arguing against incompetence.

    • @Whats MyName meanwhile republican business owners continue to hire these illegals at the same time that they donate to their handpicked politicians who rail against illegal immigrants!

    • @Whats MyName why does noone talk about punishing those who hire illegals? Make it illegal to hire illegals and problem solved…no jobs to encourage illegals to cross the border

  2. Biden Administration and those who voted for him should have to open up their property and let these families live with them. They are the ones who told them to come here.

    • @Mike Cowles that was not the time to come but the doors are open. immigrants getting interviewed saying Biden gave us 100 days to get to the USA. You’re blind allegiance to a party shows how ignorant you are

    • Daniel Platten | March 14, 2021 at 9:38 AM | Reply

      No one voted for him, the election was stolen.

    • @Mike Cowles I agree with you but sadly the people here are the same type that believe Biden didn’t actually win. I could explain how Trump’s policies were a waste of money since most illegal immigrants get in on visas and overstay, that Mexico already has enough problems so extorting them to handle this is pointless, or that the U.S. creates alot of the problems for why they’re moving by sponsoring anti-Communist dictatorships throughout the Cold War, but they’re likely to call it fake news or me a Biden apologist since I dared not to agree with them and His Holiness Donald Trump.

      Why all the fuss? Remember Trump built the Wall and even got Mexico to pay for it, as promised. Trump took care of the problem just as thoroughly as he took care of the pandemic. No worries!

      @Mike Cowles they are listening to his failed policy, not his words, moron. No one listens to him bumble.

    so instead of “children in cages”, its just gonna be children in a Plexiglas boxes?

    • Mark Simpson | March 14, 2021 at 2:33 PM | Reply

      @ruth depew It’s kids in cages. It was Biden’s/Obama’s policy anyway y’all might as well own it

    • @Larry Nottingham Sure, and keep telling yourself Trump won because Fox News and Ben Shapiro said it’s the truth. Even the Republican party jumped off that Trump train before it ran off the track.

    • Anthony Hogan | March 14, 2021 at 5:17 PM | Reply

      They gonna get it together the man just got in office and listen what they saying nothing really has change seen they was separating kids from their parents. what 2 months in office 🏢. that funny 😄

    • Mark Simpson | March 14, 2021 at 5:25 PM | Reply

      @Anthony Hogan I mean, there is 30% more separated kids in cages then at any point in Trumps presidency and this is the off season so there’s that.

    • So i am here | March 15, 2021 at 4:29 PM | Reply

      @Alice Mcclain no it’s just funny how they spent 4 years shamming trump for having kids in migrant containment facilities and then when Biden continues it it’s all fun and peachy

  5. We can’t even take care our homeless populations, now we have to house, feed, care, and educated them…

      Don’t forget legal costs. We get to pay for their lawyers too.

      @mike Tyson That is not the definition of racist stupid as*!

    • Daniel Platten | March 14, 2021 at 9:37 AM | Reply

      @Patrick McGraw True, but they are misusing the term. What they are calling racist is not racist. It’s them being stupid.

    • @mike Tyson lmao imagine being so stupid that you think homeless is a race

    • Ethereal Energy | March 23, 2021 at 12:19 PM | Reply

      @big guy That is not true the services are not there. You can not sign up for section 8 here anymore. Than you are lucky to even get doctors appointments because you have to wait months to get in there on medicaid if they are backed up. It sounds like you never even talk to these people. Some have lost everything due to high medical costs they could not pay, or natural disasters, and didn’t have money to fall back on. Not to mention we are in a plandemic now, and people do lose jobs. If you become homeless you will see what little help you get.

    The people are coming because they think Biden is going to take them all, madness…

      @American Made Democrats in the past were not so pro illegal immigration. They were, dont get me wrong, but it’s like an 11/10 atm

    • But did you vote for Biden tho?

    • @American Made that was back when they didn’t need to import voters for support. The democrats are beyond corrupt at this point

    • @Thom Colmer exactly. They have to go as far back as FDR to find a democrat president that wasnt pro immigration

    • They think we will provide for them….Seriously, I provided for my own kids and we are paying off college with my retirement. Make your own way and quit looking for someone else to provide for you!!

    There was a guy that warned us about this I forgot his name

  8. Oh so Biden has more kids in cages 😂😂😂

  9. All those kids voted for Biden, so technically he has to let them in

    But if an American parent leaves any child under 14 at home alone, the child is taken away by the child protection agency.

    • @tinknal you have your views I have mines Trump pos President😒

    • Tatasheh Tosheh | March 16, 2021 at 12:09 AM | Reply

      Trump and his followers are adertising in Central America, telling these people to come to America, so they can blame Biden… They created the first Carvan to find excuse to build the wall, now they have created the second wave to blame Biden.. The same people who brought the insurection on Jan 6th.. Same tactic.. Same Fools fall for it..

    • @PB & J in SC kids can’t stay home alone under the age of 12, I believe.

    • @PB & J Sorry, I looked it up and they changed the law in SC. Now they only recommend not leaving kids under 8 at home alone.

    • Ethereal Energy | March 23, 2021 at 12:11 PM | Reply

      Reality is it is naive to think that children are not staying home alone especially older children coming home from the school bus. That is if the parents don’t want to be stuck in poverty trying to keep high paying jobs. Some if not most bosses will not like you just leaving your job to attend to them, and not everyone makes enough to pay for daycare which can cost two hundred or more a week.

  11. So send fema in to babysit lmao these politicians are a joke

    • @Evan if 20mill ppl saw an opportunity a few miles down the street they’d be doing the same thing. Imagine the devastation of poorer countries. I hope they tear all the borders down. One world govt 💌

    • @InVert Your Cross GROSS WITH HUMAN LIFE?!!??!? HAAAAAAHAHAH!! I see why your cross is inverted you hypocrite!!! Lol You lefties are freaking whacko!!! Lmao What a POS!

    • InVert Your Cross | March 15, 2021 at 12:29 AM | Reply

      @USN Corpsman an inverted cross is irrelevant bc religion is irrelevant, we are talking about government policy. Let’s keep those separate.

    • USN Corpsman | March 15, 2021 at 1:16 AM | Reply

      @InVert Your Cross You speak lies!!! If it’s soooooo important to you what they do with “the children”, why don’t you take your liberal a$$ to the border and help them. In fact, YOU can drive them back, since you’re so concerned! Lol 😆 Pos, you never did ANYTHING for this country!!!

      @USN Corpsman you assume a lot, that can only work out well for you…

    Trump’s “Stay In Mexico Policy” was genius.

    Biden’s biggest mistake was canceling it.

    • @GEORGE BRINSON Many have stayed in Mexico and have a job. Many returned back to their country. Many have been there just waiting for processing which because there were so many they’ve waited but now these people who waited patiently for their chance, there turn have been kicked aside by the new illegals crashing in ahead of them. Not to mention all the people who go the legal route , sometimes taking years and the illegals are just getting Bidens keys to the cities ahead of all. Unfair, reckless and dangerous. This is all on Biden

    • @Susan Teeter We can do that but it won’t solve the problem in central America. If the problem is not solved cartels will keep milking these poor mirangats and it will keep dividing America.

    • Erroneous Monk | March 14, 2021 at 2:10 PM | Reply

      @Josh Diaz Basically saying, “These are our laws. You have been warned.” Is it an abuse of an American parent’s rights to have their children taken away from them if they send their kids out into a desert on their own??? Idiots. You can’t see past your bulging hearts so full of love and compassion.

    • Erroneous Monk | March 14, 2021 at 2:11 PM | Reply

      @FactsarenotdirtyFwords How much did you hear about immigration problems the last two years of Trump’s term? I’d say he definitely had the immigration issue under control.

    • Erroneous Monk | March 14, 2021 at 2:13 PM | Reply

      @I A Not allowing people to come into the US – that’s not racist, evil and wicked??? Isn’t that exactly what the Republicans were trying to do? But it’s okay for Dems to do it?

  13. When is AOC gonna fly to the border and do another photoshoot of her crying

  14. Alright, we’re finally getting what we voted for.

    • we did not vote for it! do you have a turd in your pocket

    • @James F I have several turds in my pocket, actually. And you may not have voted for it. I certainly didn’t vote for it. But as a country, we most certainly did vote for this. We’re getting what we deserve because not enough of us aren’t idiots.

    • we didnt vote him!!! Fraud votes at 2AM voted him!!!

  15. Tent sales must be skyrocketing with this issue and homelessness.

  17. American Patriot | March 14, 2021 at 9:39 AM | Reply

    Joe has kids in cages, Joe has kids in his basement, Joe has kids in beach house closets.

  18. You know what that means: Biden is evil because he has children caged. Maybe they have to say “Open Biden!”.

    I think the word you’re looking for is CRISIS.
