  1. Nobody cries for the families of Americans who are arrested for crimes when they are separated from their families and they don’t get to leave to another country, like the children of illegals, who are free to go with their parents . The illegals are also guilty of fraud in order to be hired by these companies.

    • New job opening at the cow processing plant for you. Don’t commit fraud to get this amazing job!

    • That was my first reaction as well. And then I realized that their offense was akin to a traffic violation.

      I’d bet that we agree that our goal should be 100% removal of these folks from our country. But I think we also have to be realistic and accept a number far below 100%.

      And…. we certainly do not want any type of repeat of the _Trail of Tears_ . I’m not asserting that what happened this week was wrong. I am suggesting that we should examine it from a position of balance and not a position of absolutism.

    Does this mean CNN USED to be racist because of the lack of reporting on this issue 5 years ago?

    • Google. “Illegal imigrant policies during clinton” bet you wont.

      Bagrilla Jenkins These brown folks were working for these companies for twelve years… as trump hires them also… not CNN

    • @ARJUNA BROOKLYN Obama admin was the ones who built the cages you have been shedding your crocodile tears for. Kids in cages started with Obama.

      It means that CNN knows They are promoting a narrative that their viewers are too ignorant to question

    If this happened in Jersey, half of my city would be gone.

    • Stop giving them ideas 😂

    • I shut up Ville, MagicDolphine, and LillyMarie. Your welcome America. Leftist rhetoric is simple to destroy, just point out the hypocrisies, dont succumb to the race card and dont let them side step facts.

    • Ayinde Butler congratulations your using the Slave holder/sympathizers argument for keeping slavery going but applying it to Illegal Immigrants. If half the city disappears because they are all illegal than legal residence will fill the void even if new legal citizens have to move out there to get jobs and housing

    • {// WTF! //} local businesses would get wiped out by Walmart…..that’s why

    • Ville 100% agreed. These aren’t air conditioned office jobs. It’s Hard 12 hour days doing manual labor with little benefits and health care coverage. Trolls complaining about “stolen jobs” will never apply for these roles

  4. So many commercials and ads on YouTube anymore , it’s gotten worse than television

    • You could just pay for ad free…..its the best.

    • @Steven Lynch Idk. I watch a lot of British Youtubers and comedians and they have often mentioned that when visiting the US they were surprised and disgusted by the amount of pharmaceutical ads on US TV. I started try to notice it when visiting mom because haha I havent had cable in 15 years and they are so right. Its really ridiculous the pharmaceutical ads. “Have stiffly nose? Try deathtrapazol. Deathtrapazol causing cramps, bloating, anal bleeding, liver cancer, hearth attack stroke, and sometimes death but you won’t have a sniffy nose. Ask your doctor about Deathtrapazol.”

    • @Mz Nurú I’m too cheap to pay but thanks anyway

    • @New Beginnings damn right I’m cheap

    • @Asha LOL

    Let’s protest in front of these businesses until they’re punished. They need to be held accountable.

    • I’ll protest right alongside you, I’ll carry a sign that says “No jobs for ILLEGAL immigrants!”

      Now do you realize the irony in your comment?

  6. When’s the last time CNN showed the children who lose their fathers daily on Baltimore? Father are leaving family due to either violent black on black crime or drug related arrest.

    Also let’s not forget the cultural norms that don’t shame people who just wanna make kids and run, those kids don’t have fathers either.

    • Nonsense. Do you want CNN to run a clip for every random murder in the US?

    • Patrick Star021 | August 10, 2019 at 11:10 AM | Reply

      Trump already talked about that & was labeled a racist by Baltimore’s mayor & government which makes no sense since for a decade it’s been black officials in charge of Baltimore. Just like you said it’s bad in Baltimore & the statistics shows as well.

    • dont forget about the welfare rich hoochie mama’s, if the “women” want to act like whores thats what they are.

    • @Lincoln257 Hmm…so…what would be characterized as a “random” murder, and one that should be televised? Please enlighten us, liberal genius…

  7. So why aren’t the people who hired these people getting fired

    • M Mayo that is such an absurd thing to say

    • Charlie Briones | August 10, 2019 at 11:39 AM | Reply

      Because like trump they are getting rich off the exploitation of the deffensles. Trump himself hires illeagales and when asked about it said ” Apperently that is how buisness is done”. I guess it’s ok as long as you are getting rich. Some say there are close to 30 million illeagales in this country. Since the streets are not filled with homeless and starving immigrants someone must be hireing them, charging them rent and getting ever richer while crying for ever more tax cuts for the elite class. Then they convince those living in fear to vote for a rixh man to deport them. They would not be here at all if people like trump were not hiring them, but instead paying a living wage to leagle citizens already here. But you see, that would cost the elite class to lose what they covet above all else: money.
      We flood American dollars into thses countries as the lrgest purchasers of illegal drugs in the world, funding criminal organizations, implicitly offer them a ray of hope for the future in the form of underground jobs, and then blame them for this situation.

      @Asha No but you can do as you sugest and fine them into the dust. And unless one has formed a limited liability, the owner can be sued.
      This is why I have always said that limited liability laws are immoral and simply a way for the rich to prptect themselves while they are screwing everyone around them. Trump has hired illeagals in all of his resorts for decades.
      You trump supporters have been played hard.

      @John Mendoza Oh.
      So now you like the law when it serves your interests. When trump ignores the law by refusing to obay federal court orders is that the same law you speak of. What about when trump hires illeagals for decades, is that the law you speak of.
      I agree, we are a nation of laws, and many crossing the border are seaking asylum which is legal; do you also mean that law. When you complain about anchor babies, do you mean that law because that one is the 14th amendment and would take a constitutional convention to rescind.
      Like so many trump supporters law and religion are great when they can be used to abuse those you fear.

    • @Charlie Briones lol I have no political affiliation. I learned long ago that both wings are on the same bird. I just care about both American citizens jobs and the wellbeing of people all over the world and feel like these company owners and CEOs whether they be outsourcing or shipping in immigrants are doing it to keep from paying fair wages and complying with safety regulations. Child slavery bothers me most of all and that’s where our outscored jobs go much of the time.

    Maybe it’s just my region, but why are they starting school a full month before Labor Day? That’s odd to me.

    • The Milhouse Experience its not consistent thru out the US. In California all districts will start every week thru August. My district started this week. The next nearby district starts at the end of the month.

    • bcuz it’s all Demoncrat CNN propaganda….

    It’s their fault for illegally coming over here, and don’t get me wrong I feel bad for the kids but the parents are in the wrong here, not the legal system.

  12. CNN = Propaganda machine. It seems like CNN is banking on America becoming a communist country in hopes that they become the Government sponsored and controlled network.

    • @tip pullthemnow It’s too bad that the further left a person leans the more ignorant and hate filled they seem to become. Calling people Russian bots hurts your cause because you base it off people not agreeing with you, not them actually being the insult you lob at them.

      I’m not a Republican or a Trump supporter… But after seeing how far dems have fallen I can’t see myself ever supporting such hate filled agenda based off name calling and self glorification.

    • By having them be empathetic? I would be anything if it meant kids were safe, no matter their race

    • @david abe
      You do not have to believe me. Try doing your own homework
      Google “Koch discrimination lawsuit”
      It is that easy
      1+1= Another smoke & mirrors SCAM on the public

    Don’t say Latinos were targeted in the raid but illegals are targeted

  14. And CNN blames the laws of The United States of America, rather than the criminal parents of these children who entered this Country illegally. CNN should lose its broadcasting license.

    • Yeah but you got to understand something man! Those illegal Latinos think that living here in the US ILLEGALLY AT RISK is so much better than living normally back in their home nation. Ain’t that CRAZY!!

    They can avoid this by immigrating legally….

  16. This is the results of democrats explaining to illegals what to do , what to say coming to America . They forgot to tell them how to come here legally !

  17. All criminals are sad when they get caught.

    • t1tacal they are talking about the children tho.

    • @Ananda F. My gym buddies kids were sad when their Dad got busted for dealing drugs too. I feel for the kids, but it is the parents that made them sad not the law that the parents broke.

  18. These people put their kids in this situation. When a parent breaks the law, they get arrested and seperated from their kids. This isnt anything new. Nice try though CNN.

    Hey CNN, did you air this when Deporter and Chief Obama started all this?

  20. Jeffrey Epstein just “killed” himself.

    Good thing there’s “shootings” happening and “mass deportations”. 😑
