Trump Admin. Tries To Reshape Immigration - The Day That Was | MSNBC 1


President Trump and his administration are trying to reshape the American immigration system, as Ken Cuccinelli, the acting head of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, offered his tweak to the famous poem etched on the Statue of Liberty. “Give me your tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet and who will not become a public charge,” he said on NPR’s Morning Edition. The administration rolled out a new policy that is set to reject green cards for immigrants likely to use public services.

    Maybe you should talk with the BUSINESS OWNER!!!! Arrrrrrr!

      So these people employing Illegal workers are also not paying the proper taxes and benefits. I say get the IRS after them. We are basically being told that we are pro-business but not pro-worker.

    • @Luna Saito I said I doubt all employers who have been raides are doing that maybe you can’t read…

    • @debra young You obviously have poor reading comprehension skills or a severely low IQ. I read what you wrote, and then I responded with essentially (and, I’ll rewrite it here because you’re too dense to comprehend it the first time) , yes most of these employers are self reporting their own illegal employees because they are provided benefits to do without consideration of how long they had employed illegal labor. And, THAT is why last year, even though raids were happening at the same rate, only 11 employers were not covered by self reporting protection. ALL WORKPLACE RAIDS OF 2018… only 11 didn’t self report in those raids.

      Do YoU nEeD sOmEoNe To ReAd It ReAl SlOw & OuTLoUd FoR yA???

    • Andy Peraino No, it’s the only job these folks could get without proper papers. And employers – like t’rump – know this so they can offer lower wages, no benefits, and in the case of that food plant in MS, abuse them.

    • yumri4 I agree but employers would rather exploit the easily exploitable than offer them a fair shake. Sadly.

    • Jeremy Backup you do know that MSNBC, CNN, ABC, ect. is left wing propaganda right? You do know that left wing propaganda is shoved into TV, movies and curriculum right? Lol and you leftists call us on the right brainwashed.

      Even Fredo the Paid Actor at CNN Agrees With That..😃🤣😀👍

    • @Face2wake I agree with you on CNN. It’s the Fox News equivalent but leaning towards the Left instead of the Right. But the rest that you listed, are closer to middle ground than any others.

      In fact, ABC tends to lean a bit Right, but still closer to the middle than most.

    • Jeremy Backup these are according to ABC News- left center, CNN- left, Fox News- right, MSNBC- left (further than CNN). Mediabiasfactcheck also uses snopes for fact checking so they inherently lean slightly to the left.

    • Jeremy Backup Dude……. MSNBC tends to be a far left conspiracy network. They had two people on the other day saying that Trump was sending secret messages to Nazis because he had the flag reset to normal on 8/8. They said that the number 8 correlates with H and therefore 8/8 was heil Hitler.

  4. wow ,rick Wilson, the legend

      You Forgot to Insert “” Illegal “

      Roberta Gheller calm down there Roberta you look one cig away from your casket

    • @whhnnnsa Hehehqiiaj say’s the person hiding behind fake name!! They did cross the border illegally you break the law you get arrested. The same thing would happen if you broke into a house you get arrested or shot if it was mine!

  6. Has anyone seen Fredo?

  7. Hmmm Tired people who can stand on their two feet. Lyrics that defeat themselves.

  8. Enforcing current law is now considered reshaping?

    • @california w agreed that’s what happens with mass immigration. They move into a specific area and the people there before leave because of it. Then they form gangs and have very tribal tendencies. It takes a long time for them to assimilate to the surrounding culture, if they ever do at all. It’s not really a good thing because naturally people have problems with each other and violently clash

    • They got 2 stories inter mixed. The reshaping part is how Trump is redefining what the phrase “public charge” means. The other story is about a illegal worker raid that would have been illegal immigrates either way.

    • @ipoopexelence The only people ever to get FREE STUFF are CORPORATIONS !!
      Don’t believe me ? Look up their effective tax rates and withholdings !!

    • @joe mazamutto He didn’t say anything about “brown people”.

  9. I think we need to reopen Ellis Island and convert Alcatraz as the west coast version and if you want to enter here legally you need to go through these two points.

    • We don’t need anymore immigrants in mass. It’s simple supply and demand. The more potential workers businesses have to choose from, the lower they can pay us because we all have to compete harder for the jobs. Especially when you consider where these immigrants are mostly coming from, which the third world, they can exploit them and pay them really low wages and we americans have to complete with that

    • @ipoopexelenceYou are right but it is useless talkimg sense to these people.

  10. Rrwrite..bring me all of the people in the world.

  11. MSDNC – ‘ We know dog whistles ‘

    MSNBC when are you going to do real journalism? You obviously don’t do any real research.

    • America Reigns | August 14, 2019 at 10:55 AM | Reply


    • If You Can Dream It – It is a propaganda outlet. Nothing more. They aren’t accidentally doing insufficient research, they are intentionally pushing an agenda.

  13. I’m happy he doing this

  14. The definitive news source. MSNBC.
    Sell me something else.

  16. Well they already voted down a bill to help fix it. A bill to add 800 more judges to the positions for immigration to speed up the processing of immigrates. That will in turn get the number of them in the holding places the USA has to pay for and is both under funded and most likely illegal by our own laws to do.Make the process quicker by putting more people on it. The requirements are not the problem right now the lack of people who are able to be in the processing part is the problem. ICE is just an enforcement arm they do not make nor judge. So the problem is not with ICE as much as it falls on the department of justice and/or the branch of the government called the judicial system to not be able to find a way to process them all. Most likely needing more people to process them all. The lawyers to represent them are there it is just a question of setting a court date which someone them already have to wait until 2020 in effectively a illegally kept prison because of the lack of immigration judges to hear their cases. The judge will hear their case then decide weather they go back to where they came from or get a path to be here legally.
    I am unsure who is truly to blame for the effective stop in the system: the spike in immigrates, the president not wanting to increase how much man power is used on processing them instead of removing them, or congress as they also have the power to require more judges to be hired for the immigrates to be heard then decided weather or not they get to stay here or not.

    Why the government keeps giving applications for asylum ?

    Are they that ignorant and don’t realize by doing so they give hope to those willing to come and apply ?

    Who’s going to pay for the many that already applied and stayed ?
    Trump is complaining for the ones living already in the States and yet , still giving asylum.

    The people coming mostly from Central america were told back in their countries that as long as they come to the border with a child they will be granted entry to the States and eventually a permanent residence.

  19. I went out of business on purpose. I WONT HIRE FUKIN ILLEGALS !!! profit is not that important. Keeping ILLEGALS OUT of the US “IS”

  20. MSNBC accusing anyone of “stoking racial division” is hilarious.

    Can you get any more hypocritical?
