  1. Why would a group helping immigrants need “special” approval for a hot line?

  2. You know Trump ordered this , the loser.

    Sounds Fascist to shut it down.

    Really? And they say they’re not concentration camps. What are they then? Relocation centers? The ICE or the new SS has really stepped up the misery game this month. I guess everyone has to have goals, even total pieces of filth. Petition to Fire Stephen Miller for misprision (of felony child abuse) and other crimes.

      @Troy Stocker ** you’re. Yankee education?

      @Troy Stocker *You’re pretty ignorant of the fact that concentration camps existed for centuries before the Nazis. They don’t have to be exactly the same as Nazi concentration camps to actually BE concentration camps.

    • @Troy Stocker You’re pretty ignorant for supporting Trump and Miller’s barbaric immigration policies.

  5. That’s unconstitutional, it impedes freedom of speech and ICE should be sued.

    • You should have access to a lawyer. If you don’t then they are violating the constitution for that too.

    • @Troy Stocker They are detainees.

    • @john smith IT DOSENT MATTER

    • ICE should be burned to the ground

      We the People would do well to e mail/call our reps, along with our, “reps,” objecting and calling for the re-instatement of this helpline! Suing, yes, but it does not help the detainees now. We could speed things up! PS This sort of unconstitutional and inhumane intrusion and hindrance can only lead to more violations of our Civil Rights. Who’s next? Could be any one, everyone…

  6. The american experiment is over. Get ready for civil war. White is the new enemy.

    • You idiots would be foolish if you did that ; most regressives live in urban areas , which can be cut off from being resupplied

    What authority do they have?

  8. Whoa that’s freaking diabolical and really does expose this administration to where they truly stand on civil rights of all peoples

    • Troy Stocker losing focus again there I see. The report is stating all people are important meaning you and other people are important therefore your rights must be protected.

    • Troy Stocker One persons rights denied means all persons rights can be denied

    • @Bono Budju the report is based on emotion , not the law

    • Troy Stocker no you are basing your responses on emotion.

    • GreenIdLady 1 | August 24, 2019 at 3:49 AM | Reply

      @Bono Budju Actually, it was first Natives, then Blacks, then Hispanics, then all three of those continuing while adding the nativism hatred towards each wave of immigrants from Europe and elsewhere. Don’t forget that Hispanics populated Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California long before the white American invaders showed up.

    So A.O.C. is right!!!!!!
    They need to be shut down!!!!

    • People act like ICE is an organization with a deep foundation. They aren’t even 20 years old. Of course we can shut them down. We existed for a long time without them and they haven’t accomplished anything significant since their inception.

    • @Semi Actually ICE has been around since 1933, it just used a different acronym INS.

  10. And yes there are Trump supporting fascists here loving and supporting this freedom of speech violation, as long as it doesn’t violate their freedom they’re Ok with it. They are the real problem not Trump.

      I’d say they are different components of one massive problem for the US and anyone who has to deal with us.

  11. * * *  The following is my response to a foreigner named Gort, who wrote a very kind comment about the MSNBC video concerning the U.S.A. 
    * Hello to my foreign friend Gort,   As an American citizen I thank you for complimenting the United States of America. It is very reassuring to know that anyone from another country has anything kind to write after the apalling schmendrick Trump  has contaminated our Whitehouse. No American voter possessing an IQ above 50 can be held responsible. Trump actually lost what is known as the popular vote (meaning the majority of voters,) but sadly we utilize an archaic system known as the electoral college that supercedes what most voters desire. I expect  that due to the horror of electing a mentally disturbed, narcissistic, bombastic, unscrupulous,  “kadokhes” (yiddish,) our voting system will demand a complete overhall. Americans utilizing a normal thought process feel as we are enduring a 4 year root canal, or  we are being led by “Dreadhead” the crazy shrunkenhead on the ‘Knight bus” in the Harry Potter movie (though the head was much better looking than Donny) “Prisoners of Azkabar.” The tradgedy for us is that many foreigners perceive Americans as mean, uncaring, hateful wealthy people, even more so as the result of Trump’s racism, evil, hatred, bigotry, bullying, indifference, ect. towards the rest of the world with the exception of Putin’s Russia. In reality most Americans must work diligently to survive while feeling helpless as our present selfish  corrupt leaders plunder, deceive, and cheat us.                
    With Very Kind Regards,  Earl Gray Pennsylvania, USA

  12. The last thing ICE wants is for detained immigrants to know their rights and their legal options. Knowledge is dangerous. ICE has run its course. Time to abolish it.

  13. #iceicestormtroopers

  14. the new gitmo

  15. Most concentration camps cut the contact to the outside world to hide the atrocities. We know this ends in piles of corpses.

    • You hit it right one, cover-up for what is really going on!!!!!

    • angela bluebird60 | August 24, 2019 at 10:43 AM | Reply

      We need to e mail/call and say this to our reps, along with any, “reps,” to make our stance clear-and relentless by sheer number. Anyone, not just immigration folks, can be targeted by this indefensible, destructive, ridiculous, “Administration,”. Babies and children in these, “detention centers,” have died, they are denied proper food, water, bedding, medical care and rest. We cannot condone by our silence the irreparable, un-American harms being committed by Trump and his gang. We can google organizations working to aid these children, Save the Children is one, and find ways to help.

    So we’re officially a police state !

  17. And a million stories about Trump’s properties using immigrants and zero inspections.

  18. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,………

  19. Every human has rights, this is America.

  20. Jesus! We have a Gestapo, behind our Concentration Camps. Is anyone surprised?
