    Beyond barbaric.

  2. Dumpster needs to go in tooooooooo many ways.

  3. bless her heart! praying for this brave young lady and for all of those affected by the monstrous trumputin decision! come on congress, do the right and decent thing! ty ms maddow for keeping us updated!

  4. Do these people have any humanity at all?

    • remember when obama stole a lot of peoples healthcare.

    • @joe blow
      Obama only destroyed healthcare for hardworking Americans. Democrats don’t care about them. They only care about the rich and their invaders as a voter base.

    • @Thomas Armsworthy Jr Armsworthy is a name of ancient Norman origin. It arrived in England with the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Armsworthy family lived in the town of Hemsworth in Yorkshire. The place-name was recorded in the Domesday Book as Hilmeuurod and Hamelsuurde. It was originally derived from the Old English personal name Hymel and the Old English word word, which means enclosure. The personal name Hymel is a short form of names such as Hunbeald, which means bear-cub bold, and Hunbeorht, which means bear-cub bright. Thus, the name Armsworthy changed dramatically over time. Surnames rarely appeared in their modern form in ancient chronicles. In the 11th and 12th centuries, it was common practice to Latinize names in official records. The modern spelling of a surname is usually related to the phonetic spelling of that name that was developed during the 17th or 18th century.

    • @Thomas Armsworthy Jr everyone comes from someplace. You obviously fell off the turnip wagon sometime ago

  5. Hurt the poor and powerless support the rich and powerful, the trump administration’s ideals

      How come u have a fake account like all the scum from the devil’s legion?

      @Arashi Mokuzai
      I don’t care if you reported me cuz you’re the enemy to the people with a fake devil’s legion account, in fact what I should do is have this whole issue busted wide open where serpent demon people designed to look human are using YouTube to destroy humanity with textbook mind control brainwashing tactics and YouTube is in on it. So here in the future I will remember this little Oriental bimbo and make sure his name goes on there as the single one and why I’m busting it wide open .

    • @Arashi Mokuzai grow up dorothy

  6. A longer and more in-depth interview would had been great.

  7. What breaks my heart is that she’s only 24 years old on the news talking about a life and death situation.. Come on America!!

    • @Snoop Catt
      Yes, we are not responsible for every sick person in the world. We have our own people and their needs. Why is that hard to understand?

    • @Albert Green Let’s say it quite simply: The young lady was brought into your country by your doctors because they had the chance to research this rare disease with her. Nobody expects the USA to provide medical care worldwide.
      To do research on this person, but then expose her to the danger of death, is as moral as putting your car with warning signs next to a traffic accident, but then not to help, while other volunteers continue to drive in the belief that help is done.
      After all, there is a simple consideration of self-interest: since the first half of the 20th century, the USA has benefited from the immigration of scientists who cannot be produced by your own country’s schools and universities.
      Of course you can let the young lady fly out to Western Europe. But please put the scientifically top-class doctors on the plane at the same time.
      If you’d rather cultivate the stupid nationalism we’ve gotten rid of here, thank God, over the last 70 years, you don’t deserve those clever minds.

      I hope that was not too complex an argument. My highest qualification is s. th. like vocational training.

    • @koelnkorrekt
      She was exposed to death by her condition which was not created by the doctors, researchers or any one in the United States.

      If you pull someone out of the street who was almost hit by a car, are you then required to feed them if they don’t have food?

  8. America is surreptitiously fast slithering down into 3rd world Banana Republic status & stature under SpankyPants tRump. First it begins with flagrant corruption followed by ultra nationalistic nazi policies & behaviour. Whenever I travel abroad to Central America, Europe, South East Asia or pretty well anywhere outside America today I’m ashamed to say “I’m American” anymore & usually now try to pass myself off as a nice Canadian Canuck.

  9. What a tough young woman! There are people living fuller lives because of Isabel!

  10. Thanks for the courage you’ve shown in fighting for your own and other people’s lives. Your contribution to medical advances will probably never be fully appreciated until you are no longer with us. Bless you

  11. Impeach President PAB, ASAP! That’ll MAGA, quickly!

  12. Didn’t the Nazis want to get rid of the disabled? America is toast under Trump.

    • Tessmage Tessera | September 12, 2019 at 10:30 AM | Reply

      @Thomas Armsworthy Jr Why would any American use the word “symphany” in place of “sympathy..?” A five-year-old child knows the difference between those two words. Another foreign troll — NAILED.

    • @Tessmage Tessera
      Why do you believe someone who has more sympathy for their own people is a foreigner. Can Americans not care about Americans first?

    • Tessmage Tessera | September 12, 2019 at 11:34 AM | Reply

      @Albert Green I have already said why I think he’s a foreigner.

    • @Tessmage Tessera
      I don’t think you understand. I think it is strange that you immediately jump to a person being a “foreign troll” because they disagree with your stupid ideas.

      It’s like you can’t imagine that an American disagrees with you and your stupid ideas.

  13. Until today, I was not sure of the source of this monstrous decision to murder deathly ill young people. Today, however, a current White House lawyer and Trump judicial nominee refused to answer the question if he had worked on the legal decision to slaughter these deathly ill young people. Trump’s reign of cruelty marches on.

    Keeping with the cruelty theme, of course, Trump is denying temporary immigration status to each and everyone of the 70,000 people left homeless and destitute by the hurricane we shared this past month.

      These people are not citizens….
      But yet liberal democrats have no problem with late term abortion…
      Give her a taco and boot her across the border. I have no symphany

    • i Be The Band U.A. Morrison | September 12, 2019 at 11:31 AM | Reply

      Better still, lets give you a Drano enema and boot you down a toilet

    • @i Be The Band U.A. Morrison and your cohort Thomas, I know anti American when I see it. The richest nation on earth has nothing but hatred and cruelty for most of the inhabitants of the planet with whom they share space. Your pro life stance seem to end once a fetus becomes a human being, then all they brown ones should conveniently die.
      Once I accidentally walked into a “pro life” rally and have never seen parents so abuse their children on a mass scale. Your so-called pro life position is just another excuse to be hateful, which you have just demonstrated with your homicidal Drano enema. You are pro death and you know it.

    • @Thomas Armsworthy Jr the Boston Pediatric Hospital brought her to the U.S. you moron. Gene therapy is the next breakthrough in medical science. It might even help you !!

    MSNBC, Hello America!!!
    My perspective is that…
    Anyone who’s attempting to single out, discriminate, cause the cruelest form of hurt, harm, and disrespectful heartless danger
    to the human lives of Isabel and others whose receiving life saving medical treatments within our nation’s……
    “Medical Deferred Action Program,” should be absolutely ashamed of themselves.
    Some of the heartless medical health care insurance lobbyist
    and Republicans whose received backroom payments to politically peddle deportation of these medically fragile beautiful people,
    should be fired and voted out.

  15. I hope you make it girl

    I’m curious about the participants in the study Ms Bueso is part of. Are there children from other countries than Central America taking part in the study? And if so, have all of them recieved the same letters?
    Or is it only persons of color they are trying to kick out of the country?
    If Canadian or European kids are in the study, and haven’t had any such letters,….well, then we know exactly what this is about.

  17. Jacqueline Leubin | September 12, 2019 at 6:07 AM | Reply

    If i was her, I would stay in the USA, and have protection from the hospital people and lets see who would dare to drag her out of there!! I bet these people who would get that job to deport her would quit or never have a clear conscience again!!!! And Trump himself wouldn’t dare to do the job himself, the coward he is! God, I wish that young lady fights the fight and wins all the way and beyond! xx

    Trump has done more to feed the world hate, than any man since hitler.

  19. Always remember, Trump’s bottomless pit is a BOTTOMLESS PIT. There is no “it can’t get any worse than this”… it always gets worse tomorrow under the Trump admin.

  20. Please deport Trump back to Russia.
