Marielena Hincapié: Immigrants Need A Pathway To Citizenship | Craig Melvin | MSNBC


  1. There are people who have paid thousands of dollars and have waited years to come here legally. Unbelievable.

  2. My wife and her family waited in line for 7 years to enter this country legally… There IS a path to citizenship, you just have to wait in line with everyone else

    1. @Grampa Genuity Not letting me link CATO institute article proving my point because Youtube deletes the comment but you should be able to find that pretty easy, illegal immigration is about the same, legal immigration is down

    2. @J M Your media lies about everything, especially all things Trump.
      Your side claims our 30 foot steel wall doesn’t work but they work everywhere else on Earth. Funny how prisons have successfully used walls for hundreds of years. They work on your house.
      We know for a fact illegal entry was down under Trump. He also made Mexico help. Potato Biden is doing the bidding of people trying to destroy this country. Not one Democrat policy or position is for the good of most Americans and the country.
      MSNBC is cancer.

    3. @Grampa Genuity Walls don’t work anywhere but to an extent. The US mexico border is massive, the wall provides infrastructure for easier traffic of illegals through the new roads needed to build the wall, they cut through the wall with cheap tools, the wall blows over, they climb over, they go around. It only succeeds in cutting american territory off, cutting of wildlife, and breaking up native communities. And I just gave you my source, you can see for youself. Israel is a much smaller area, and it’s also still filled with many migrants. Also no, mexico didn’t help us build the wall, lmao

    4. @Spider Taylor I know. What is your point? He did this with the understanding that we would allow no more illegals in ever again. Democrats didn’t keep their word.

    1. @CHIEF TAHCHAWWICKAH Stop with the Indigenous already
      Indian s are from Asia You people are so Annoying and Wrong .You were Not First
      Your Not Natives either
      PC And Attack on Founders of America Is Just Wrong on All Levels
      Your Indian s ..Indian Reservations,INDIAN Casinos
      And America has a Constitution and US CITIZENS Requirement s on How to Become a US CITIZENS ..
      You Have to APPLY
      You cannot be a Felon
      You have to be an Individual of Worthy Standing
      you cannot be a Criminal
      you must
      Speak ENGLISH
      Must have Sustainable Income ( you cannot come here to be on Welfare)
      You Also Have to have Knowledge of INDIAN TRIBES
      You Have to Know Branch s of Our Govmnt
      There Is A Very Sufficient way to Become a US CITIZEN

  3. I DON’T THINK SO, GET IN LINE. Laws have changed now and if everyone has to jump through hoops, you guys need to also. Someone please tell Biden that immediately!!!

    1. @BrillStrat your a joke. Our current system is slow so bad people or drug people can’t just come here legally

    2. What kind of country do we have when you allow immigrants to flood in, then give them housing and our American jobs, while our own are living out on the streets?

    1. Lol once they get $$$ they will just leave back to their own countries they won’t stay once they see the culture here.

    2. The American people made it massively clear. They support strong borders. We need a quota of new legal immigrants. And now with so many tens of millions out of work and in need of public assistance this is not the time to increase the flood of “Undocumented Democrats”.
      This is all about the next election for Democrats and nothing to do with what is best for this country.

  4. Americans are suffering and virtue-signaling Leftists want us to help other people that’ve left their own homes (instead of cleaning up their own messes).

  5. Send them back people have been waiting for years to become American citizens do it the right way or not at all!

  6. A pathway to citizenship don’t that sounds so sweet! This has nothing to do with helping aliens have a better life it’s all about votes!

  7. First, they must enter the country legally like every other migrant did…I will never hire a migrant; they do not speak enough English and I refuse to speak Spanish. Maybe, if they speak German..I might.

  8. Here some truth language… You broke our laws, you are not Americans!
    Pay back due on that green card, pay fines for breaking the law and get in line.

  9. Maybe, after all real Americans have been hired..we can let a few migrants in if they have some skills; otherwise, we have enough unskilled workers to work in the fields or other jobs no one else will do.

  10. Come in legally like everyone else, follow the law like everyone else, I don’t support illegal immigration, Rewarding bad behavior is the worst approach to illegal immigration

  11. How about obeying the laws of The United States. Executive direcgtor of The National Immigration Law Center may know something about lawful entry into The United States. DRS / RVN Vet.
