Echoes Of Gitmo? Trump Seizing 'Indefinite Detention' Powers | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC 1


The Trump administration is attempting to roll out new policy that would detain immigrant families ‘indefinitely.’ The last time calls for indefinite detention were brought before the Supreme Court, the Court ruled to limit government’s power to hold suspected terrorists and enemies at Guantanamo Bay. VICE’s Paulo Ramos says the new rule ‘goes way beyond immigration policy,’ instead it is an attempt to ‘deliberately and strategically’ reframe ‘who in this country is entitled to basic human rights.’

  1. Trump will not be satisfied until he is American Dictator. You think “It Can’t Happen Here”? Think again.

  2. He doesnt want them un the USA but he is happy jailing them indefinitely. That makes NO sense. This president makes NO sense. Unless he is doing a solid for his old pal Jim Kelly who has been raking in money with these privately owned detention centers.

    • jaime delgado he doesn’t know where their parents are, so can’t send them anywhere. So he changed the laws to cove4 his stupidity

    • @Dee Jeff “Duh Jeff” He can keep them ALL together by giving them safe haven at Gitmo. Just a hint President TRUMP 2020 MAGA WWG1 WGA KAG !!!

      It’s taxpayer money, which means those of us who pay taxes, Trump, corporations & the 1% don’t pay taxes, so, it’s us. And the billions are going to cronies, not to care for the immigrants, not even enough for toothbrushes. That’s why The Squad voted against the bill, because the cronies get this money with no oversight. More money from us going to his cronies & used to indefinite detainment for immigrants in horrendous conditions.

      J Diguls Have you ever been to Gitmo. In the summer of 1980 I was at the Naval base. It was one most depressing place I have ever been, it is so unbelievably hot and the Mosquitos are vicious, No one should be sent to Gitmo. Period.


    • MrBananaCheeks | August 22, 2019 at 6:18 PM | Reply he at least reduced the population from 250, to 41, while Trump signed an executive order to keep it open indefinitely in 2018. Blame Obama all you want, but your boy has made negative progress there.

    • McConnell and his traitorous cronies stop him at whatever he tired to do.

    • buh buh buh buh but Obama! 😭😭😪😥🤡🍄🤥😭😭🐃💩😭<

    • @MrBananaCheeks Trump promised to fill it if necessary. What on earth are you thinking about? Negative progress, whatttt?
      Jailing terrorists = negative?

      Obama promised to close it. Any chump can reduce the population. Barry promised it would be shuttered.
      The fake news media is robbing you democrats of logic. You are quick to insult and slow to realize what your arguments reveal. Sad really.

      Next typical leftist response, “I can’t understand this (makes me soil myself).”

  4. Wait until he cancels the 2020 election.

    • He can’t. The US is not a parliamentary system. If it were, Trump would have been out a long time ago. There’s no provision in the US Constitution to stop an election. None of the branches have a power to stop an election.

    • @Terry Hawkins ALL you Demonrats are spineless.Y’all better stock up on your size “82XTRA DUMPY DEPENDS”……………..and SOON!

    • @GreenIdLady 1 : Wrong Liar. Do you have any way to prove your Suppositions? Well? If the NRA Laundered money from the Russians, that would be high crimes against America. If you had the proof, how long would you be alive to expose it? I was serious, when i said the RNC, outed the NRA for paying for Russian interference in 2016 elections. Putin admitted to Russian interference in 2016 elections. Google it? Your Deflection is noted. Trump Deplorables..

    • @Dj Sugarbear Same, and i think that would be the end of democracy in this country

    Yup GITMO GALLOWS & INCINERATOR… I’m pretty sure Treason is punishable this way

    We need paper ballots to protect are votes to get rid of all those who want to distory are democracy

    • @Tattletale RED Perhaps you haven’t heard how “Goofle” sways 16 MILLION votes(Judicial Watch) in favor of Killary,that wasn’t the electoral college

    • @Georgia Roney These last couple of years they’ve stayed n “grazed” off the American taxpayer. “Come on people” they don’t skedaddle over our borders at night to come and seasonal watermelons. The ones that work here either have a green card or go back and forth daily. Which turnip truck did you fall off of……………………….MORON !

    • @Eyehayt Apricots PREACH!!!!

    • Gregory Williams | August 23, 2019 at 12:26 PM | Reply

      Eyehayt Apricots Who was the Governor of the great state of Florida during the hanging Chad incident, and who was the the Republican candidate. And who decide the outcome of the election. Bush, Bush, Supreme Court.

  7. While all presidents have nicks and scrapes in their immigration policies. Look at the major incidents we have had. 1985 was pointed out in this video and that was Reagan. The formation of Gitmo was Bush and now permanent detainment with Trump. A pattern seems to be forming.

    • You are way off with your history but nice try. Gitmo has nothing in common with illegal aliens or bogus asylum seekers. It was the Dems who promised to stop all illegal crossing of the southern border in exchange for 2 million illegal aliens getting a pathway to citizenship. The Dems can not be trusted and never tried to stop illegal aliens so now we have 20 million.

    • All republicans.

  8. THIS is the ROT THEY voted for…’s MORE like NAZI Germany than Gitmo !! THIS is HOW it starts…. giving this MONSTER four MORE Yrs will lead to a ” Final Solution” !! NO doubt in MY mind !!

  9. Well here it comes tRUMP has meetings with Russia, N.K and others we
    know who they are but WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS SAID tRUMP wants to STAY
    IN-OFFICE! one way, if a world war presidents stay in office in that
    case Here is another like I said we do not know what he has said he
    now has put out in wants to stay 8/10 years the only way this can happen
    is if Russia, N.K. and others face nukes at the USA in 2020 and say if
    USA does not let tRUMP RUN the USA than they will nuke/bomb The USA
    has set up this kind of stuff for years on other counties so this would
    not be the first time this kind of stuff went down Just THINK of what
    is going on in how tRUMP is talking today and how he has talked and what
    is going on in the USA The countries that have tested nukes WITH tRUMP
    JUST WHAT IS tRUMP UP TO (the chosen ONE the KING he calls himself)
    on, on, and on the man is sick THINK PEOPLE EYES WIDE This man is

    This dirty man ! God will give him a long slow painful death!! He will be bed ridden for years !!

    • You concept can’t do anything, I just want him gone and never heard of again I don’t care what happens to him or the fools that supported him.

  11. Trump is doing the exact thing Republicans fought against and warned us about for years. Yet they are eerily silent right now. They should be the loudest given their track record on this subject.

  12. Oh, if you speak the word recession…look out for black shirts ice

  13. We should make presidential nominees take a test and prove they can do math before letting them run for office.

      Full psych evaluation would help, too.

    • I agree. I can’t understand why someone without any political experience be allowed to even run. Actors and reality TV goof balls.

    • Thanks everyone! The election of Trump proves that our constitution is horribly flawed.
      It is the constitution that allowed Americans to put an unintelligent and brutal bully into the Oval Office.

    • @Denyze Hilary won the popular vote. It was Russian interference with the election that put Trump in office not the constitution.

  14. I don’t mind saying it Trump is insane.

    • The last thing I want him to do is anymore catch and release. We have 20 million illegal aliens squatting and working illegally in America, taking good construction jobs and many more. They work with stolen or fake IDs. which is fraud. Deport all illegal aliens without exceptions and the bogus asylum seekers with stop

      He’s 73 years old. Think a family history of Alzheimer’s, his multimillionaire father, he built NYC City Housing Complexes and passed away from it in 1999 might have something to do with it?

    • @Noise Latrine Do not know what a Q cult is but i know that you are in the cult of Marx

    • @brian gardner Arrest and fine the people who hire them and create programs for farm workers instead of concentrating on visas for high paid jobs like the tech industry.

  15. Anyone who defends Trump now is as guilty as he is of destroying what America once stood for.

  16. privatizing human containment led us to this road.the mentally ill,and homeless will be next.then anyone who speaks against it.then….

    No echoes of…actually SHOUTS of, pure undeniable FASCISM. 45*/GOP Concentration Camps. Full stop.

    Remember the good old days when Amnesty International didn’t have to sound alarms about and sue the White House over crimes against humanity? When such horrors were the province of the worst undeveloped 3rd world “shitholes” and unimaginable in the civilized world? Not the case any longer, and Amnesty International was actually recently denied access to tour any of the US Concentration Camps and are suing for access…meanwhile, they usually are granted access to such places in 3rd world “shitholes”. The US is now worse than some of the worst countries in the world by this measure. Appalling, and per the course for countries descending into fascism and genocide.

  19. The obvious reason for doing this is the $775/person/day for Empty Barrel Kelly and his fellow concentration camp operators with a cut for Don the Con.

  20. And his voters fear Sharia Law LMFAO! 😂
    When you think it can’t get worse, America keeps surprising the world and itself.
    Well played, it’s almost time to run for the hills.
