  1. SECRET SERVICE IF YOUR LISTENING…. … your oath is to the constitution…not the man!

    • @senne17 there is law and there is lawlessness. Trump has followed the constitution and all laws in U.S. if u jympthe border, no paperwork for proper entry, YOU ARE ILLEGAL. THOUSANDSare on waiting lists LEGALLY waiting. Border jumpers are invaders and aught to be shot. Imguessing you are one of those.

    • @E Redmond you democrat do gress is holding him back. You need to spend much more time watching g Pelosi and company and let Trump do his job.. The DNC said all Trump supporters are racist. I’m not a Republican, I, like Trump were Democrats for far too long. John Kennedy was a real Democrat Hillary and Pelosi are crooks. I’m conservative not Republican .

    • @walter hankins I know exactly how it works, $20,000 is cheap. I was looking to move to Costa Rica during Obama, I needed $350,000 to get citizenship. They said I could buy a house or have cash in bank. I know exactly how it works.

    • @Frank Smith Actually I am a dutch citizen and would never want to live in the U.S . and that is because of psychopaths like you who think just shooting people is is somehow ok

  2. Katie Porter is a power house,  she is for all Americans  I love this woman,  go get them Katie

  3. Listening to this and how the children are  being treated makes me vomit.  Trump is Hitler Reincarnated

  4. I’ll bet ya the officials & guards at these childrens concentration camps are busy cleaning & spiffing up the cages before Katie Porters inspection. She should arrive unannounced!

      P J True, but consider what she found even though they did have prior knowledge of her visit. The problems are being caused by the enforcement agencies and how they are choosing to act toward these immigrants. We need some legislation that will bring some consistency to how immigrants will be treated, and some consistent enforcement of existing laws.

  5. Thank you Mrs. Porter!!
    You are awesome.

    And Lawrence, thank you for keeping this in the spotlight.👏

    When is the U.N. going to step in and charge Agolf Tweetler with crimes against humanity?


    • Der Aua you are very stupid to think this killer of children and so corrupt is doing good about anything. Most of the jobs these immigrants are doing you wouldn’t do and certainly not for the pay they get. Wise up and quit talking about what a great president he is. He’s an illegal, and brought more corruption to the White House than any president in history. So sticking up for such a terrible person isn’t saying much for you. ☹️

    • Der Aua Besides that why do you think you’re so much better than them. Most are just trying to get a better life for their families. They’re being treated unjustly in their own countries. You need to go where they came from and find out what a terrible life they have and you think sending them back to the terrible life they came from is good? Shame on you and anybody that thinks what Trump is doing to them is good. You probably are against abortion too, but killing children at the border is ok? How stupid that is! You all need to be arrested and treated like they are ! SICK!

    • Der Aua ,,,,didn’t make many friends hey buddy . You should take a drive and who knows you might get lucky ant roll over a poodle Lol. 🐩 VROOM. VROOM. SQUISSSSSSH 🚗

    • @Der Aua Let me guess. You got expelled from high school after compulsively jerking off in science class and now live in an RV with your sister and your kids and your guns. Correct?

    • @neosapien247
      Loved your response to Der.

  6. I’m a simple girl. I see Kathie Porter and I click.

    Good job Representative Porter and Mr. Lawrence.
    You are true, patriotic American heros!
    Thank you.

      America needs a hero right now

      Sh!t rolls downhill.
      The intent of the current administration’s fascist immigration policy is to terrorize immigrants as a deterrent against all immigration. The lying orange puppet is encouraging government employees and contractors to break the law for his benefit.
      “I was only following orders” is not a legitimate defense. Illegal is illegal.

      We are a nation of laws. The orange one is circumventing the legal system to inflict suffering on immigrants so he can line his pockets. He has no respect for the rule of law unless it benefits him.

      @brian gardner I guess you dont like immigrants because they took your job at the senen eleven. Now you cant find another job because you have too much intelligence. Your proud that you passed grsde six after ten years of trying.

  8. She’s awesome and straight forward. I like her a lot.

    • I loved when she schooled the CEO of Chase Bank on economics. She offered to supply the book she wrote on the subject. Lol

    • It is a awful sign of the times when you find yourself hanging on to words of intelligence and reason just to feel there is hope still in the govt of America. This lady Ms. Porter, is one of them . So is Mr. L. O’Donnell. His intelligent questions with equally precise lucid answers from Ms. Porter. .

    • Go hump the dog then lolololllol

  9. I was shocked when she said some of those women were there over a yr. This is not normal not even for a 3rd world country. Not even in WW1 or WW2 did this happen, only in America.

    • Infested _INFESTED_ *Infested-Infested* ….oh shut up!!!!! Don’t talk to her that way!

    • quietman356 123455 | August 29, 2019 at 10:48 AM | Reply

      Guess you missed Democrat Franklin Roosevelt s internment of Japanese Americans and to a lesser extent German and ltalian citizens.

    • @brian gardner You are so stupid that you did not CAPITALIZE your name.
      Third world people have more brains than you brian..

  10. Katie Porter is a bright spot thank you So. Cal for gifting her to all of us. Those who put her in office should be proud!

  11. I love the freshmen Democrats. They actually answer questions, effective, and very easy to understand.

    • @A T It is Trump thinking. His supporters would love a dictatorship. But they forget the first to go in the Reich were the ones who brought him to power.

    • @Infested _INFESTED_ *Infested-Infested* 💊💊💊💊💊 Med time

    • @Infested _INFESTED_ *Infested-Infested* What’s matter cockaroach, no money where ya big fat mouth is? Ante up mofo.

  12. We Love Congresswoman, Katie Porter! 💕💟💕

    • @Infested _INFESTED_ *Infested-Infested* only that your hide will only get two bit’s, full of holes like your arguments.

    • @Infested _INFESTED_ *Infested-Infested* I’ll take that bet – what ya got – what do you want to bet – name your mutal agency while your at it.

    Trump committing crimes in broad daylight now, without care of any investigation of his crimes. Telling your staff to violate laws and promising a pardon is a crime .

    • you’ll believe anything

    • U r a liar,if he co.mitted a crime Pelosi would have him in court, she does this frequently,he’s had 4 investigations and he’s clean. You need to pay attention.
      TRUMP 2020

    • @Power corrupts 2 years ago the Dems said the constitution didn’t apply, now all the Dems talk constitution. Have ya seen B Clinton in the dress and Pelosi with el chappo and the wall around HER house. Watch your own party, they’re stealing blind.. Biden talking millions from Chia, Obama/Kerry/Clinton trying to sell uraniumto Iran. Pay attention.

    • @quietman356 123455 isn’t it amazing what they believe?

  14. Great Role Model for her Children by demonstrating Humanity and Decency. She is also honoring her OATH of Office which others should follow. This is unconscionable for any decent human being to accept only to flex their muscle of Authoritative Powers. Much 💗 Ms. Katie.

  15. Really a shame it’s taking freshman Congressmen do to this.

  16. They are heartless & cruel because……$700 per person per day goes to PRIVATE COMPANIES who ex Cheif of Staff Job Kelly….is on the board of directors for!! Hhmmm 🤔😶🤐

    • Disgusting doesn’t even to describe my thoughts on how these migrants are being treated. The only thing missing are the gas chambers. I dont know exactly what the solutions are but to make profit out of human misery is not what I would expect America to be doing. Now, nothing surprises me and THAT is even more alarming. I Dont Want to wake up and think to myself, “this is how things are now from America”. I could cry for you Lady Liberty.

    • and just how does it cost $700 a DAY? and where is this $$$ coming from and going to? something is VERY fishy here……

  17. Why are employers of illegals NEVER arrested?

    • goodgulf13 because Trump hires them for his own benefit. But don’t you do it that’s un-American

    • The last factory I worked for. Did a massive replacement of their employees with low-wage workers. But first the fundamentalists that ran the place had to hire a bi-lingual worker to translate operating instructions.

    • @joe Domjan the hiring of undocumented workers has been happening for a long time. The employers haven’t been prosecuted for hiring undocumented workers for a long time. This practice predates trump, and it will be here after trump.

  18. I love this woman. I hope she runs for higher offices and finds support.
