  1. Trump doesn’t care and neither do any of his supporters. Why? Because its not anyone they know and love..

    • Annie Please try to remain on task. This article is about an amazing young woman who happens to not have been born in this country. This article is about the heartlessness of the blob of orange meat and it’s cronies. Please try to stay on task

    • Where’s the VP, Mike Pence. He’s supposedly a deeply religious person ??

    • Listen up people. We Trump supporters do care. We are not heartless demons but we are practical.

      How much do u think her “rare” condition would cost the taxpayer? Most cities are already in debt, I kno mine is. America can’t pay 4 healthcare 4 every sick kid that makes it 2 our country ILLEGALLY, jst can’t do it.

      Why don’t these rich talking heads & actors like Lawrence O’Donnell & Hollywood Celebs pay for it, then there would b no problem? But they won’t so u want me & my community & other poor ppl’s taxes to go to this. F’** that.

      How many of u on here typing trash about Trump are willing to give up half your savings for this poor girl? I bet none. So stop it. You’re all just looking 4 reasons to hate Trump.

    Let the moral outrage begin now…… This is just another example of the trump administrations complete lack of American compassion.

  3. How do you watch Trump tear down the foundations of America and still support him?

      @Louie Berg Immigrants work, obey the laws, and contribute. Think for a minute.
      Illegal immigrants contribute to Social Security And they can’t collect. For the most part they fly under the radar. They obey the laws for the most part.

      @ღSwnsasyღ _ And neither does the other alt right media outlets I would bet. I wonder what many of them would really think if they knew. I imagine some would be appalled and that’s why they aren’t hearing it from their favorite news outlets. If the Trumpsters were truly monsters, there would be no need to hide it from them.

    • @daveapplemotors Which is why the fearmongering is silly and un-American

    If trump administration decides to put death sentence, they’re the new Nazis that can exterminate many innocent immigrants. Come on! Let’s not let the US become an axis power, trump isn’t Hitler.

    • @NI SeI am so so sorry to say this to am so sorry for you because of your lack of knowledge nd understanding of the God that Created u, nd every thing u er enjoying both the Air that u breathe in nd our every day of ur life. What gives you the right to outer this kind of stupid and foolishness thing out of ur useless mouth. If you know about God or dosen’t believe in Him keep ur mouth shut. Nd don’t say anything about what u don’t know or be understanding of. The God u said that is not there He is the only one that can take ur breath from u when it pleases Him the that ve ur life in His Almighty Hands. So please keep ur foolishness to urself ok . Ne may the Almighty God forgive you for lackadaisical behavior. Please do not reply. Nunes fool just like so Trump that is going destroy u nd ur Country, that time u will be begging for food the world will be witching. Fool

    • @Doris George ok even if God exists should we risk Trump to get away with just saying God will judge him oneday or should we make sure he pays for it now and maybe even later just to be sure. Why would we need jails if God just regulates everything oneday 🤪

    • @NI Se Surely Trump na the wicked Republican na that’s working nd his Children too nd believe me or not it will better for him not to involve him selves with this wickedness that Trump is doing to innocent Children and people. he will get his punishment nd judgmentm and reward of what he has sons he will Shall surely ripe it nd God will surely bring it to pass!!!!

    • No that’s not what am saying I thought u will understand where am coming from. That’s why we have justice department but the person that is sitting there do u think he will not do what Trump ask him to do? he has been helping Trump I just pray that their eyes will be opened so that they will wold him Responsible with his Children nd all that er involved

    • Worst of all, those sick immigrants are LEGALLY in the United States, they have not broken any laws.

    This administration should be held accountable for multiple human rights violations/crimes against humanity at the same level as the nazis were held accountable.

  6. I see this as kind of euthanasia by deportation and it is despicable!

  7. Elisabeth Sherman | August 31, 2019 at 1:00 AM | Reply

    Please let us know who we can call & to whom we can donate to help Isabel & other children in her situation, thanks.

    • @Javier Perwz Well you certainly cannot expect that trump’s administration or any other republican administration would ever do anything to help the less fortunate in Portland or anywhere else. Only help those people can hope for will come from a Democratic administration that actually cares about the people over enriching the wealthy. BTW it was the republicans that removed the public option from the ACA (aka Obamacare) which would have made it possible for those Portland people to have care at no cost to them.

    • David Thévenon | August 31, 2019 at 8:42 AM | Reply

      Your taxes should have taken care of it; but instead the US gov will send her God knows where. The best solution would be to support the heathcare systems of mexico / salvador / guatemala etc.
      The real solution is not borders but prosperity without borders.

    • @Javier Perwz
      The USA government on every level SHOULD be helping. To do so, the system as it is and has been for decades needs to change.

      I’m tired and disgusted at Democrats and Republicans for bending to the will of Corporate America and Wall Street. Is why I’m voting for Bernie Sanders. He’s not beholden to them and will change the Anti Trust laws among many other things that bends to the will of we the people.

      However, these children and adults that are on life saving measures will die long before the election.

    • Excellent question, Elizabeth. I’m interested in the answer too.

      @Javier Perwz ask the Republican run purse strings

    Where are all the so call CHURCHES, BIBLE TUMPERS at now??? they are just you typical HYPOCRITE!!!! Where are all the so call Christians at now?

    • Kathleen Blachere | August 31, 2019 at 12:11 PM | Reply

      Correction….they are called HYPOCHRISTIANS…God’s worst sales people. God sent message for them….please cease and decist.

    • Martin Bolantin The Christians are in the same place when it was announced that children and adults are being mistreated at the border. Their love for one another is conditional it would seem.😐

    • Kathleen Blachere | August 31, 2019 at 12:19 PM | Reply

      You know when a preacher said the chickens have come home to roost and God dann America….they wanted to tar and feather him. This is what the underbelly of America looked like all along….waiting. It crawled out from under a rock when a black man dared to run for president. The face of hate and bigotry got permission to show itself…….how we like us Now?

    • They are all at their “Pro-Life” boot camps! SMDH, and Alt right rallies!

  9. I hope she is allowed to stay. It would be sensless and a real tragedy to kick her out. Thanks for taking on this story MSNBC.

    • Thanks to Rachael Maddow💜👍@ MSNBC. She was first to report on this as she usually is way ahead of stories before anyone else👍

  10. Country wide moral outrage stopped the Trump family separation policy last year. But it needs to be the whole country, including the GOP and those “pro-life” evangelicals too.

    But I appreciate the journalist keeping it professional and based on the hope of persuasion. Lawrence is right, if it upsets the “liberal media” Trump’s administration will consider it a win.

    • Nancy Beveridge Taylor | August 31, 2019 at 12:25 PM | Reply

      Pro-lifers are only pro life for 9 months, after that you’re on your own, not only that, but they will happily, delightedly participate in your death. I know, I am related to several of them.

  11. Don’t bring stupid religion into this, stupid people. This is a humanity call, not a religious one. Marie Isabel has helped the US and a real friend, like her, should always be treated with hospitality and gratitude. For life!

    • Stop fighting each other…this is Trump’s Administration who will pay for their evil deeds. What goes around certainly will come around again. Ugly is ugly. Trump will repaid for his evil doings and his family will pay as well.

      @Ruth Amui It puts you as being a Spiritual Person who can see through the man’s nasty, racist, self serving attitudes.. Of course there are many many Spiritual Folks of many different Religions who do not condone Trump’s actions.. He has latched on to a specific Religious Group and tells them what they want to hear..and he does it all for self glorification. The man has no shame..

    • @Ruth Amui you are a decent human being.

    • for a lot of people compassion is very tight with religious values, so is ok. the problem is for people that are religious and then say that the rule of law shall be followed without thinking about the real moral desitions inside applying the law and not seeing the entire picture.

  12. The first victims of the Nazi regime, were sick, disabled, and debilitated people in hospitals and asylums. People deemed unfit and a burden on society. Doctors and nurses sometimes risked their own lives to save these patients by any means necessary. Will we do less? Does that make us the Nazis?

    • Just when you think America can’t shame itself any worse, it starts murdering children. That’s what this is, state sanctioned murder of sick children.

      And the first thousands of deaths in the camps by deseases, because of the bad treatment…

      @Margaret Merton Exactly Miss…. Trump Supporters do not like the Comparisons to Hitler but the realities are so obvious..

    • Vera von Weltin | August 31, 2019 at 11:45 AM | Reply

      Under Hitler’s regime, individuals deemed ‘inferior’ were killed by the regimw. Trump and Miller are crueler: they force the parents to object their children to certain death and stand helpless by when they die! How far will the American people let this go? STAND UP!!!

  13. I am saddened by this and cant watch or take anymore of this .

    I don’t know much about MPS-6. But, what I do know is that if Trump’s youngest child were to get that same disease after Maria has been deported back to Guatemala, he would WASTE NO TIME “bribing” Maria to come back to the US so she can continue with the study to help find a cure, mainly for his son, NOT for Maria or other young people who may already have the disease. Therefore, Trump IS ONLY sympathetic to the safety or well-being his own.

  16. This is not the first time a seriously ill person was sent from USA to a country where they had no medical support and who died within 3 months. I fear Lawrence you might be speaking against the thunder of a White House which cares nothing for people who need care.

    • I remember watching a video a couple of days ago about a guy who had lived his whole life in the US but was born to Iraqi immigrants.He was put on a commercial flight and deported back to Iraq where he knew no one , didn’t even know the language.He was diabetic and died a few days later because he couldn’t get his insulin dose.

  17. Before the war began in Europe in 1939, they began rounding up and killing those with deformities and disabilities…. Stephen Miller and Sebastien Gorka originated this, but Trump and Pence and Homeland Security own this. Homeland might as well start wearing brown shirts.

    We are the keepers of our brothers and sisters, meaning we are responsible what happens to them, especially when they are weak and helpless — for each of us is weak and helpless in our turn. For those follow the Bible, Matthew 25:40. The concentration camps on the border? This is deliberate decision is simply a progression of evil. How can you support this legal cruelty? America is about honor, integrity, standing up to bullies, defending liberty. What’s next? Arbeit macht frei?

  18. The Trump administration has taken away medical deferments for immigrants with life threatening conditions. That says it all, doesn’t it. MAGA!

  19. Unfortunately, Trump and his administration are cruel and have no humanity.

  20. Trump the GOP, and their brainless followers are NAZIS. It’s really no more complicated than that
