    How the facade of America being a “christian nation”…
    remains intact is a clear indication as to how far…
    it actually is from being a christian nation…
    Jesus is not pleased…

    • @John Preston you were trying to guilt trip the right into letting these losers in and stop detaining them. You are a Democrat and there is no Christian’s left in the democratic party. The age of white guilt is over now also. I bet your still calling people racist too. None of that will work anymore. So please convince everyone why we should not deport every illegal in our nation and stop anymore from coming.

    • @John Preston “thanks for playing” we are no longer playing around with the future of the USA. This isn’t a game.

    • @Your friend, Death, what would Christ think about the way our government is treating his children. Matthew 18:1-5 “At that time the disciple came to Jesus and asked, ” who then is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven?” He called a little child to him and placed the child among them. And he said ” Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.'”

    • @Your friend, Death , it’s very easy to call yourself a Christian, it’s a lot easier being a hypocrite.

    “They are human beings”… I love this man

    • @Power corrupts How many more accounts do you use? Do you get paid? What country are you from? Russia?

    • Power corrupts Obama was sued by the American council of immigration in 2015…did Trump make them do that ? And a valid reason for separating children from their “families” is because many people grab children that aren’t theirs and bring them across the border hoping it’ll help the process. Also many children are being human trafficked across the border so separating them to find out if they were actually with their real families is a good thing.

      Obama is gone shav.
      Your fearless orange leader is terrorizing immigrants and holding them hostage to get more money for his fascist immigration policy.

  3. THIS is the kind of conversation we need to be having. Thank you.

    • Yes it is, the other trash is just distraction. I dont know how anyone can think that Trump is fit to run our country

    Mcaleenan looks embarrassed and ashamed. He’s knows a legitimate answer does *NOT* exist.

    • No it does not.
      Like to see them in cages, no access to showers, clothes, etc.
      Now that, would be the ultimate Karma.

      @Daisy Elmir America and its people, are doomed to repeat the history of crimes against humanity until we acknowledge AND atone. Why would someone change a behavior they don’t deem problematic?

    • @Alexis Mitchell
      Until there’s no one left to speak for them some people just don’t get it. They never will, until it happens to them.

      McAleenan was just appointed. This was going on for months before he took over after Kristjen Nelson got fired. He shouldn’t have to take the blame or be embarassed.

      Kelly Tredway He accepted the position and willingly took on that responsibility. However, I think he actually does care (00:14), unlike his predecessor. But, his cowardice and unwillingness to call out this administration’s policies is shameful and disgusting. I feel utter contempt for ALL of them.

    I bet Kristin Neilson is happy she’s no longer in the firing line!

  6. I am disgusted by how certain Americans treat each other.

    This is the level of reporting needed in order to fix things

  8. DHS dude was thinking: When did we start treating brown people like human beings?

    Elijah is a true human being and a real American. Trumpturd, McConnell and the rest of those reprehensible Republikkkans MAGA Maggots are evil piles of 💩

    • @Ellen Anderson hate is the problem. Hate is blinding. Created in the ego. They feed you hate to hide the truth.

    • @Gabe Dudley I agree about the hate, and I agree the hate is strong in Anti Trumper, but sometimes it’s so frustrating dealing with the current America people lash out, I certainly have. So I can see where he’s coming. Or he’s a bot, it’s getting harder to tell all the time. Or maybe just another troll, who knows.

    I love Elijah Cummings, he’s the real deal for American Justice!!! And we need him now more than ever, to ensure Justice is served!

  12. Democrats DO NOT HAVE to come to the table when the Republicans do nothing to compromise and stonewall every ounce of legislation that is not super right wing.

    • Bird Man Sure, but your cherrypicked take on things is instantly muddied when you understand that standard border/immigration enforcement is now described as “far right” or “fascist” by MANY on the left.

    • What is keeping the Republicans form making the first move?

    Trump is bathing in hate and loving it. Like the clan behind him at his rallys. Get him
    out of our house this POS.

  14. “The cruelty is the point,” but it isn’t American.

    North Carolina will be known as a racist state.

  16. 2/3 of these people are legal asylum seekers who didn’t have a pre-approved visa. They can’t leave anytime they want, it takes a judge with a 2-4 month backup. They sit in thier own filth, no showers, no clean clothes, no soap, no toothpaste or brushes, sometimes even are forced to drink from the toilet when the water faucet was broken. Yet taxpayers pay $775 per head per day – its theft on top of inhuman punishment. It literally meets the Webster definition for prison camps.

  17. “Trumps mind is a scary and dark place.” How is it that a portion of this country cant see that?

    Thank you Elijah Cummins! They are all human beings they deserved to be treated with dignity!

    Please don`t send Trump home.
    Greetings from Germany.

  20. Elijah Cummings is the soul of this nation. May God bless him.
