  1. This is as spiraled out of control as Trump’s dastardly mind.

    • @Scott M Yep. One need only use search terms like Obama cages children YouTube 2014 and so on at Google and the videos are there. But Dems gave Barry a pasb but won’t give Trump one because they are hypocrites.

    • @Kip McEwen you do realize the number of children has increased exponentially under your master and last i checked obama is not president your master is

    • @Bruce Boring his policy? Trump doesn’t make the laws, he’s enforcing existing law.

    • @Shawn Smith educate yourself you will be better informed

    Let’s put trump and his minions in a cage.

  3. Children suffering PTSD & mental trauma cause of socio/psychopath tRump. America, what have we become & how low can we go?

    Keep in mind, these are just the ones they were actually able to reunite, it’s such a sh*t show there are who knows how many who got shoved into the adoption system.

  5. Trump cries daily for these kids

    • @vsboy 25 I agree.

    • @vsboy 25 most illegals over stay visas. Like the Democrats was saying, more judges, border patrol, and technology is what we need. There have been over 1000 tunnels found under the wall we have now so how is another wall going to help?

    • Jovon R. The tunnels need to be loaded with c4

    • @vsboy 25 how can you say trump care about children when his administration went to court to argue the kids didn’t need toothbrushes or beds and blankets while in over crowded cages all while they suffer ptsd from him separating them from their parents? Now he want to detain them indefinitely. It shows he really care

  6. Republicans seem bent to destroy American values, they hate American laws so much.

    • You do know that Obama started the kids in cages and there are still videos from 2014 here at YouTube on this?

    • @Kip McEwen actually he only sent ppl to jail who broke a actual law not just cus they mexican n didn’t have paoerwork, Republicans wer the ones who made up the condition to cage ppl. Look no further then bush 2.0. He hated Mexicans. I just wish the gop voters would call out hatred. But they never will, they hate America soo much why?

    • adam latham ,
      It’s our values to have open borders and put the 2nd and 3rd invading illegals before Americans who are suffering?
      Since when?

  7. But the Republicans compared the detention centers to summer camps.

      People walk a thousand miles to get into the “concentration camps”
      Btw…they can leave anytime they want so gfy traitor trash.

    I don’t understand why they need to be locked up in cages so tightly…
    Can’t they take an old/disused building, and create a few acres of land around it, put up fences to keep them in the compound,
    and then leave them to roam freely inside… they can go inside, outside, walk, run around and play soccer etc…
    it’s not perfect but way better than having 80 kids locked in a cage the size of a tenniscourt…

  9. It will be important to watch the inspectors…….Trump is the kind of guy to reach out and hurt the people who criticize him…..joe

    When will this monster be stopped?! Will he EVER be held accountable for his cruel, inhumane and sadistic acts against, not just adults, but also countless young children?! Isn’t there someone, ANYONE, in the entire world that can be courageous and decent enough, to call this man out, and have him charged with Acts Against Humanity?

      Awww…your tds is so cute. You poor thing. 5 more years.

    • Looks like another Chump Troll just got triggered. The comment was not intended to stimulate your degenerative, diminutive cerebral cortex, to send a nerve impulse down your arm and into your hand, and cause you to type out a standard, Stockholm response, characteristic of trumpanzees. Hope you are feeling better…now that you got that off your chest!

    i suppose that trump is begetting his failed childhood onto a new generation of children, abit like a failed father figure …….abit like a failed messiah “Cry little children and come onto me , i shall show you the way , to the biggest , the best , way of unreality , where black is white and down is up” 🙁

  13. PTSD . . . A perfectly NORMAL reaction. And, the damage will be a burden on America: financially, politically, historically; and it will form the character, nature and face of America, for generations . . . This is NOT us, America? It MUST be stopped . . .

    There’s another byproduct that will come from these children being interned by our corrupt government and Trump and the American people better start waking up and looking at this because they are sowing the seeds for our future. These children will grow up to become adults and they will have such hatred for the United States and democracy resulting in them possibly becoming the new terrorist of our planet and will attack us and others for not helping them during their childhood. America this is not a laughing matter or something you could just push aside we are sowing the seeds of our future and our destruction because of it. We are trying to defend our country against terrorism and this is not how you defend a country against terrorism this is how you turn the country into something that Nazi Germany was in the past and that is exactly what we are doing. Trump is the modern-day Hitler and our border security is slowly becoming the new SS of America. This cannot go on anymore and we must put a stop to it before it is too late.

  15. America should be hanging it’s head in shame. This is mass cruelty plain and simple. I wish Trump and his henchmen nothing but heartache and personal pain.

  16. Child abuse

  17. And still, the US electorate lets it all happen.

  18. Child abuse, neglect & kidnapping at the federal level.

  19. The coup of 1963 brought this outcome.
    Nothing new here folks, move along, it’s business as usual here.

  20. PTSD is often a life-long serious and painful disability that no victim deserves. In many cases, victims contemplate suicide. I speak from painful experience of it.
