Lawyers: We Can’t Find Parents Of 545 Migrant Children Separated By Trump Admin | All In | MSNBC


  1. Who sees this and thinks “Yeah that’s my guy!” America was BUILT on immigration for them to say immigrants aren’t welcome is a disgrace!

    1. Super Slash it’s not just that, these ppl were seeking ASYLUM and for the States to turn around and kidnap their kids and god knows what they did to the parents not to mention the stories recently where they had the sick psychotic doctor lying to some of the woman and taking out their ovaries so they couldn’t bare anymore kids , all of it is a crime against humanity!!! It’s incredible. We grew up believing when you see an American flag on a person you can trust them, I’m a Canadian and after all the insanity in that country I no longer look at them this way sadly.

    2. @SeanKimStyle no one came to America legally. Invasion and theft isn’t legal by any stretch. That argument by ppl who even breathe the word “illegal” are done and need to give it a rest with their racism

    1. Same group, they’ve been there 3 years. Trump and Steve Miller decided to do this to deter any more immigrants from coming

    1. No. No, it’s not. The biggest nightmare is going to be the one where we come after you once the war gets hot. Good luck.

    1. @Willie B Crossing the border and at an official border crossing point is not a crime.
      Seeking asylum is not a crime.

    2. How do we know if they were kidnapped to be used as a tool to get in the USA? Let’s not play make believe and deny that isn’t happening in a lot of cases………

    3. @Willie B When you break the law and go to jail, does your kids not kmow where you are? Are you completely inaccessible to your loved ones? Are they not even allowed to visit you?

  2. Trump and Trump fans must be cheering about this…. ONLY THEM can be happy and be OK with this… It’s revolting!

    1. America should be better than this. If some other country had done this to human beings too, those same hypocrites would be calling them savage countries.

    1. I see it as a blessing… Over 500 kids have a chance to reunite with their families… If they didn’t DNA test, those kids would of been released to whoever claimed them.

  3. Steven Miller should be arrested. Systematic Child Abuse/Torture of 1500+ kids, 540 of whom are now orphaned. This sounds like a charge you hear made by a War Crimes Tribunal, not an example of US Gov’t Policy.

    1. They are going to be traumatized for the rest of their lives how is this monster allowed to run for president again. He has so many investigations going on and accusations the things he has done is inhumane. I’d like to know how they can let an impeached president run for president again

    2. Plus the US is signed up to international treaties that put the needs and welfare of these children above any other considerations or government-policy-we-want-to-use.

      Amazingly, keeping children with their parents and families is **pretty high up there** as a fundamental human right for these children.

    1. @Walter Lichtenberg Life should be defended at all stages: fetal, newborn, child, adult, elderly. We can support humane treatment of illegal aliens in detention centers while also defending the unborn; it’s a false dichotomy to suggest pro-lifers lack empathy for the born.

    2. @CyeOutsider UN peacekeeping missions exist for exactly these scenarios of human rights abuses. They have the authority to set up local offices (so to speak) and assist with situations like this one. Lebanon, Bangladesh, Haiti, etc. have had peacekeeping missions to support the locals.

    3. @juan Rodriguez Yes but its not the government who is being cruel, they didn’t bring the kids over and abandoned them. They are just dealing with someone else’s cruelty. The fact that you can’t see that reflects more on your soul than mine. The fact that even when pointed you can’t accept that speaks more about your moral compass and not mine.

    1. @pc if anything you guys claimed on hunter biden was true, how come NONE of it has been used in official investigations? after all, these investigations are ultimately controlled by trump.

    2. I’m pro-life but I’m also pro-law-and-order and pro-legal immigration. These people can go back home and get off our backs.

    1. Some of the children were infants.

      No matter how many times I try to rationalize it, I cannot understand how the officers involved could do that.
      Some people, some american people, took infants away from their mothers.

      I just cant.

  4. *I am ashamed to be an American…* *Who deliberately separates children for political points AND keeps children away from their family for 3 plus years?!?*

    1. @American Patriot Immature cruel Trumpthink whataboutism won’t do for this atrocity…kids alone in cages, within concentration camps, no beds blankets on concrete floors then shipped off to other states unable to talk with parents effectively kidnapped. Tax payer money at work.

    2. @Kar Walker
      Those people have fresh water clean rooms and are well-fed.
      Those illegal alien people were only coming to get welfare and Social security which is a burden on our taxpayers.
      Are you a US citizen?

    3. @Kar Walker I’m replying to the “I’m ashamed to be American” comment. Those who hate America really should move out and live elsewhere.

  5. “Immigrant Children in the US Are Still In Cages. Not in the headlines, but this travesty continues.”
    – Tom Arie Donch- The Nation 8/28/2020
    If children have remained in cages during this pandemic , then how many dead children are the Trump Admin hiding ?

  6. I’m tired….all I can think of is to vote, vote,vote. Somehow We as a nation will have to come together. Please.
