Speaker Pelosi calls a new plan punishing low-income immigrants bigoted and demonizing.

  1. 2020… save us all, including our environment

      Brian Smith voting for POTUS 45 would be turning our back to any immigrant who just wants to support their family by honest labor.

    • James Hutchins | August 14, 2019 at 4:45 AM | Reply

      Thom Gorman and you think GOP supporters are all college educated, brilliant people who are concerned caring people? That GOP supporters all live to the best in mankind and Democrats are ill-educated, satan loving and war mongers?

    • James Hutchins would that be legal or illegal? 👍👍

    • T Boned how is the climate changing naturally? Please explain?

    • James Hutchins | August 14, 2019 at 7:35 AM | Reply

      Brian Smith honest labor is working for an honest wage. I would advocate the businesses that hire the supposed “illegal” workers should face stiff fines and loss of property. Just like those convicted for RICO violations. First time a fine for each illegal hired, second time a fine times five times fine for each illegal and third time – obviously they are a criminal racket. Thus, loss of property, bank accounts and jail time.

  2. Trillions in handouts are given to billionaires.

    • RAT RepublicansAgainstTrump : Love your name, but I’m more of a CAT, since I left the Republicans, when Trump got the nomination: Conservatives Against Trump ✌️👍

      @Folk Aart which parasites, sir?
      Would you like to elaborate on this bold statement or should we take it as it is?
      Well, at least you got a laugh out of it.
      That makes me kinda happy. ♫♪

    • @Adolph_ Brancardier The socialist liberal ones.

    • theodore roberts | August 14, 2019 at 12:25 PM | Reply

      Yeah, they call it CORPORATE WELFARE. Just like banks, they give money to those who least need it. Trickle down does not work and never has. Don’t drink it, that’s not yellow rain. And the layoffs have already started. How’s your stocks? Falling! Wow, who would have expected that to happen when you have a president who can’t read the word economics?

    • theodore roberts | August 14, 2019 at 12:28 PM | Reply

      @Brian Smith You seem to have a problem with thinking, Brian. Is that why it rained? Sad, so sad.

    Imagine if instead the money and resources targeting hardworking fathers and mothers went to finding actual criminal elements from foreign nations, or better yet, into dismantling Far Right White Supremacist/Nationalist hate groups that are responsible for most of the terrorism in the US.

  4. I imagine Trump’s ICE chief believes he is a good Christian!

  5. Rural farmers in red states should be able to stand up on their feet. No more handouts to them. After all, they support 45 and his trade war that’s ruining their livelihood.

    • @daveapplemotors If you could rephrase that in a legible way I’d respond to it.

    • daveapplemotors | August 14, 2019 at 7:40 AM | Reply

      @Lol No I edited my comment to read better. What is your rejoinder?

    • english steve | August 14, 2019 at 9:21 AM | Reply

      @Lol No – Nope. If I’m super rich and in the kind of business that employs hundreds in assembly line type work, the vast bulk of those jobs are done in third world countries with low wages. Only a few managerial or product design jobs are in the US. But hey, we should be on our knees in gratitude to the 1% for the low wage McJobs that they can’t ship overseas huh?

    • Carley Brown – Smart comment! Ditto for banks that get propped up by government money.

    • Toni Sanoe Dela Cruz | August 14, 2019 at 12:18 PM | Reply

      Its ruining all of our livelihoods.

  6. So, what is t’rump doing to stop illegal immigration from Europe?🤔
    **crickets** 🦗🦗

      Don’t forget the illegal Canadians. Uhm something tells me they are holding many jobs Americans would actually do. Weird.

    • Rhonda Goodrum | August 14, 2019 at 5:20 AM | Reply

      @Ro G they have zero interest in knowledge. As plainly stupid they are. They don’t see it. There just here to attack fellow Americans to make sure none of us will ever vote Trump. They are turning people off from Trump better then any Liberal or CNN could ever do.

      Exactly. When I lived in Boston, it was an open secret that there were tons of illegal Irish and Polish people there.

    • @T Boned Where is the proof that there are murderers , drug dealers and MS13 coming into the country? Because SOMEBODY told you that. Be sure to tell the people in El Paso or Dayton or Virginia Beach to be wary of illegal immigrants. What if we asked people in Kentucky and Ohio where they’re getting their drugs from? And what if I told you MS13 started in this country? SMH

  7. We have the wretched, the chump family, Bill Barr, Steven Miller, and all the lobbyist cabinet members, and the senate.

    • BeachBum it’s like…feeding strawberries to a donkey , you can’t appreciate what’s going on. Step outside Plato’s cave and find out what’s really going on in the outside world, away from strictly controlled MSM and PERMITTED speech platforms like Farcebook, twatter, GoebbelsTube owned by google the doctored CIA / deep state communist search engine !!👍😃

    • At least this President has a REAL birth certificate and not a FAKE one like the last traitor.

  8. Jeeez these people are the definition of self sufficient they got taken away at work right???????

    • @Rougé Moonchild they weren’t picking fruit. Most illegals work in the construction industry. And yes Americans will work in the construction industry Americans will work in plants. And few Americans need to work in fields because tractors and combines do all of that anymore.

    • Honey Keeper yeah!!! Thank you!

    • @Honey Keeper illegal immigrants are mostly in the construction field. combines and tractors have replaced common man out in the field.

    According to an IMF study ,The US subsidized the fossil fuel industry to the tune of 649 billion dollars in 2015.

    • According to scientists, climate change is a natural occurring phenomenon and has nothing to do with carbon emissions. According to economists, the lifeblood of an economy is oil and gas production. According to the fake news as dictated by their handlers, the end of the world is coming if we don’t stop using oil and gas. Do the math.

    • Under the worst president history OBAMA.

  10. “Who sows the wind reaps the whirlwind”!

  11. Most rich people truly believe that everyone can be like them if they just work harder.
    And the super rich get BIGGER handouts than the upper/middle/lower classes by the way.


    • No, poor people are generally destined to be poor because they have low IQ and make poor choices. What is a single women who can’t afford children to expect when she goes and gets pregnant and has a baby she can’t afford to raise? Poverty is the lifestyle choice of stupid people who freely make stupid choices.

    To Have Poor People’s is Because the 5% and 15% Of the Population Have the Big Money 💰 Controlling The Wold …When The 80 % Of Population Lives Poor Living To Work Been the Slave Modern With No Benefits …. All the Bad Things We Do Will Come Back You …. Remember That ….. Thanks .

    • We have poor people because poor quality people make poor quality choices – live having children they can’t afford to raise and then taking them into another country illegally. Stupid has consequences.

      @Folk Aart Judging by the level of your comments, you’re married to your sister, so what’s your point?

    • @Richard Barber Feeling a bit insecure are you? How many illegitimate kids have you produced, you imbecile?

  13. Ok then what about your own people? Most come here with nothing and build a life your CITIZENS start with something and just throw it away you have CITIZENS who have waisted what they had and all you can do is blame those who came to build something true

      That’s the beauty of freedom, isn’t it? You can do with your life whatever you choose. This is a free country, not a free for all country. You are not entitled to anything just because your feelings…

    Wow, I never had a law professor as sharp, perceptive, and easy on the eye. Wonderful guests, Ari.

  15. So you can break the laws of the Geneva convention and torture your own citizens. HA! This is modern Apartheid!

    Can we go to war with our government already, how much more do we have to endure before people start fighting them. We voted them in, let’s literally drag them out

    • Richie Tattersall | August 14, 2019 at 1:57 AM | Reply

      Google Article V in Constitution: Amendments. 2/3rds of the House of Representatives + 2/3rds of the Senate, OR 2/3rds of the States have the right to propose an Amendment, EITHER way, at least 3/4ths of the States have to ratify it before the Constitution can be amended. The founders of this country KNEW that Goverments can, and do get totally out of control, they guarenteed us a way to reign them in, we just have never done it.

    • Sam McCormack | August 14, 2019 at 7:19 AM | Reply

      Quit believing what the lame media is saying and your nerves will settle down. Making you anxious is how they control you.

    • LostinSpace TK – that is a troll comment. you sound just like a Russian troll trying to incite violence and violent overthrow in America. We know who you are and we know what you are trying to do. Shame on you.

    These same folks come on CNN and spins for Trump then he gives them high powerful jobs they don’t no nothing about this is the worst administration I’ve seen in my 62 yrs

    • @pascal bxl American white guys shoot up Chicago every single week? 60 this past weekend? Black liberal terrorists are the scourge, destroying our urban areas.

    • @pascal bxl good luck. Republican ideals are compromised. They now rationalize the opposite of what they used to champion.

  18. So, what dem candidate can best clean up after this mess without paving the way for a new Trump fascist?

  19. I would like an immigrant as my neighbor before I would ever pick a wealthy shark like Trump

  20. When a man does something thoroughly dishonourable, he will often claim it was his duty… 😠
