  1. If all lives matter why didn’t this one?

  2. Stomach-churning stuff. Things like this aren’t supposed to happen.

    Dogs are treated better than this. Who puts kids in cells with concrete beds, let alone sick kids? Disgusting.

    • Jeff Smith well no the US has to recognize refugees any of them who ask for it haft to be looked at not persecuted they should deport Trump supporters because they are low intelligence and not an asset to the US,

    • Republicans pro-life and Catholics who vote for them claiming that democrats are pro-abortion. Irony

    • long nose if Obama started, why trump enforce it??

    • @long nose Trump enacted the no tolerance policy which is what’s keeping most of these folks detained. Also what’s deporting the wives of military and military personnel themselves.

    • @long nose The whole “But, sir, the other guy started it” argument didn’t work in elementary school, and won’t get you far here either.

  4. Who is going to pay for this? Doesn’t matter if they broke the law. We have murderers rapists pedophiles and everything in between in our jails and corrections facilities and they are treated better than those coming here looking for help via sanctuary laws.

  5. More murder by Trump.

    • This is just the tip of the iceberg…..Trump and Kushner have so much blood on their hands……complicit in genocide even.

    • Trump’s wall would have kept sick people out. The blood is on the DEMOCRATS hands. They should warn them not to come if they had any compassion.

      @Dave Schultz .. if you had any compassion you would not be a Trump supporter, he’s a murderer Eff him

    • @Dave Schultz Are you saying that people fleeing tyranny and persecution to the US and what they perceive as a safe haven, and then find that they are just as badly off because of inhumane treatment by this government is down to the dems? Get real you moron, try telling the truth for a change and come clean with your corrupted GOP.

    This is what evangelicals support..

    • They also support the kidnapping of 2000 children taken from their parents and farmed out all over America with no way to trace where they went or to who.

    • @Dave Schultz Sure thing, Rev. Dr. Dave Schultz, Th.D.

      Make them WATCH THIS! Start by telling them that it’s an American youngster.

      Then tell them that it’s a young person, attempting something that pretty much none of our 16 year olds would have the nerve to do; stuggle for a better life, and no doubt to help their families. Compare these young people to the average spoiled American teen.
      And he died. On a cold concrete floor. Horrible.

  7. A fever & the flu is not hard to detect & easily treated. This should never happen. Hold these people at these places accountable up to the very top – trump.

    • This is so inhumane. Steven Miller is responsible for this and should be held accountable, along with djt and the repulsive gop.

    • Kind of ironic that homeless people are dying in the streets in DEMOCRAT cities and crickets. Hypocrisy.

    • Alex Ocasio-Gomez | December 6, 2019 at 8:39 PM | Reply

      @Dave Schultz Those are Americans. Democrats don’t consider Americans or babies to be human.

    • @Alex Ocasio-Gomez find one single abortion that was paid for by tax dollars. They don’t exist. In fact in the last eight years only one took place and it was to save the life of the mother. For you if you think that something bad has happened that justifies let a kid in custody die. What you are saying is if there is other wrongs in this country then letting this kid die is fine. You people are beyond belief.

    • @Dave Schultz just like Nunes’ district of Fresno which has been controlled by Republicans forever?

  8. Trump and anyone who follow his insane rulings are as criminals as he is ….. CRIMINALS, THIS IS CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY !!!

    • Alex Ocasio-Gomez | December 6, 2019 at 8:41 PM | Reply

      People in democrat California are dying from leprosy, bubonic plague and flesh-eating bacteria.

    • vince kelly How many children did Obama murder? We know its zero. Trump and Miller have the blood of children on their hands.

    • Explain to the readers what criminal acts he did differently than Hillary, Bill, Obama etc etc etc

    • @jsombf You know, it is an infamy of cowards and uneducated people, to make a defense while trying to make rhetorical references to other cases, people or events, and use it to justify their bad acts …. I cannot think, that Trump is good, nor his behavior proper, because his wrongdoings are (somehow) less harmful than Hitler’s atrocities.

    • Alex Ocasio-Gomez | December 6, 2019 at 9:57 PM | Reply

      @Lara Jones Obama murdered American children so democrats don’t care.

  9. ALL of these children, their deaths, are Murder by the President, Miller and any other involved. The Incarceration for PROFIT is disgusting.

    • @Chook no it’s pretty much the same. Mexico is in no way a failed state. If you’re in danger in one area, you cam freely move to another area and be safe. They clearly did that into America

    • @robearl1983 “seeking” and “demanding” are very different, for a start.

    • @Chook sure i realize truth and facts are always disturbing to left wing maniacs like your self
      so i know the only play you have left is to insult , smear , and demean that source

    • @vince kelly The “only play” that “left wing maniacs” … have is “to insult , smear , and demean that source”. Can you see the irony in your comment, Vince? What do you say about my more substantive comment that Trump is not morally exonerated by the alleged moral wrongs of others?

  10. The world is watching Trumps America

    • Thomas Armsworthy Jr | December 6, 2019 at 5:17 PM | Reply

      Trump 2020

    • GOD is also watching…

    • They are probably discussing taking Trump and his cohorts in crime to the Hague. The evidence is mounting. Torturing and murdering children is not acceptable anywhere, any time, by anyone. Name the guards, name their suprvisors, name the owners of the company overseeing the detention centre. Pictures in newspapers

  11. This is murder. Everyone involved in the planning, execution and profiteering are complicit and deserve more than derision.

    • Henri Jean Baptiste | December 6, 2019 at 10:24 PM | Reply

      @robearl1983 What did I say that was even remotely racist, all I said was that treating an individual as some amalgamation of all their countries issues was stupid.

    • @Henri Jean Baptiste you’ve probably never even been to Canada.

    • Henri Jean Baptiste | December 6, 2019 at 10:28 PM | Reply

      @robearl1983 So if I’m understanding you right your issue is that BROWN people emigrate to WHITE dominated countries????? I’m sorry if I’m getting this wrong you framed that argument very weirdly.

    • Henri Jean Baptiste | December 6, 2019 at 10:34 PM | Reply

      @David Hale I didn’t see your comment about being black. But either way black people can in fact be racist to other minorities. There are tons of Black Israelites that are heavily anti-semitic, just as an example. So no I don’t owe you an apology.

    • @Henri Jean Baptiste yeah.. Why would They if whites treated thrm so badly?

  12. I’m enraged that tRump and company got away with murder, literally

    • save the rhetoric. This kid died because the people in charge of the facility weren’t doing their jobs. Your ridiculous comment makes as much sense as saying J Epstein died because of Trump and company.

    • @Kent Salsby I believe you are looking for FOX

    • Are Trump’s ICE facilities being used for organ harvesting and slave trafficking? 1475 children still missing.

    • He said he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue, and still got elected!!! Nobody else would have gotten elected making that comment

    • @Marla Hill He definitely has a superiority complex, it’s despicable

  13. Jesus, look at the cells they are forced to live in! They don’t have beds or pillows?

  14. Remember to be “pro-life” while you agree with people dying in cages.

    • Kathleen Martin | December 6, 2019 at 5:22 PM | Reply

      Agreed and they simply can not see that Pro Life does NOT just mean Life before Birth..They will be in favor of these proposed reductions in Food Stamp Funding..that is UNTIL they realize that will affect them or Folks they know as well as those they deem to be Undesirables.. Pathetic Attitude.

    • Landon’s Chanel | December 6, 2019 at 6:01 PM | Reply

      Yes, saving embryos is more about saving their own sensibilities than saving an actual life. If they actually cared about a life, they might spend some time on people who are already born.

    • @Landon’s Chanel They’re more interested in parading their fake piety that caring about actual human beings.

    • Remember to be pro abortion when your moralizing about death.

    • Kathleen Martin | December 6, 2019 at 10:32 PM | Reply

      @Dawn Adriana They most assuredly have shown that in regards to the Family Separations at the Borders ..and Social Programs in general.. They are the same Folks who turn out in droves to Protest Abortion, they Protest against Dying with Dignity, and they are vehemently against the Death Penalty..yet remained Silent over ICE dumping the Water Containers in the Desert that people put out..for the Families that are attempting to get to safety.. They have no sympathy for Families fleeing situations in their Homelands that are unlike anything most of us will ever encounter.. I have sent countless Trump Supporters data re the Asylum Seekers and Trump’s insistence that they are convicts, drug dealers, rapists and would be murderers..and in particular the percentage of Folks applying for Asylum, TPS, H1A H1B L1A l1B permits as I work in that field.. I use the DOJ Executive Branch Migration and Asylum Reviews since Trump is head of the DOJ (supposedly) but they are indifferent for the most part to the fact that our Government’s own data contradicts Trump drastically.. They tend to get their information from Ultra Right wing web sources which are a polar opposite to reality..

    The USA can no longer pretend to care about other countries human rights activities

    • @Alex Ocasio-Gomez Huh? Which planet did you fly in from. Maybe planet North Korea or China.

    • Alex Ocasio-Gomez | December 6, 2019 at 8:46 PM | Reply

      @Dennis O’Neill Then why don’t democrats whine and cry every time an American dies? Why is dying only a big deal when a sick mexican crawls over the border? Americans have ben dying for hundreds of years.

    • @Alex Ocasio-Gomez The biggest reason US citizens are dying is at the wrong end of a gun. You can thank Trump and co. for not addressing that issue.

    • Alex Ocasio-Gomez | December 6, 2019 at 9:23 PM | Reply

      @Dennis O’Neill Fake news.

      Alaska XMR …sure …I’ll give you that… that is the flip side of the coin. But you don’t get to claim that you are pro-life. You are pro your opinion…

  16. It burns your heart over this. Those who are responsible for this are damned.

  17. The administration should be held accountable and charged with murder.

    • Now go moralize about abortion.

    • @Tom Jones Numbers 5:11-31 “may the Lord cause you to become a curse[b] among your people when he makes your womb miscarry and your abdomen swell. 22 May this water that brings a curse enter your body so that your abdomen swells or your womb miscarries.”

  18. Look at what Trump is doing to these children and he’s trying to get mad about The Law Professor teasing his son Baron ….

  19. “you may find this video disturbing”, there is something God awful wrong with you if you don’t.
