    Why wouldn’t we just ship them back!!! Why pay to detain them INDEFINITELY!!!! I thought Republicans were conservative with government money. This is morally wrong and financially stupid.

    Isn’t it weird how the same people that defend the Constitution on gun control as ‘unalterable’…

    … they’re the same people willing to break the Constitution to jail innocent children indefinitely in inhumane conditions, in cages.

  14. If you think trump is not personally profiting from the nearly 800.00 dollars per day per person that tax payers are paying these for profit prisons. WAKE UP.

  15. prison owner’s get richer and tax payers pay billions, while immigrants suffer.

    Trump is Pure Satanic Evil.
    Un Christian and Un American.

  17. One of the reasons for Guantamino (sp?) is that it’s outside of the United States and therefore, the constitution does not apply to those prisoners. It’s apparent to me, this president wants to apply that same philosophy to immigrants. But, if I’m not mistaken, they are not citizens, therefore, are not covered by our constitution. If that is indeed the case, then mercy will only come from those who care, which disallows our government leaders. They hate almost everyone.

  18. Concentration camps

  19. He is so evil and corrupt. Anyone supporting this president, no matter what they say, condone this kind of Nazi ruling. They are just a guilty.

  20. WTF!!? This IS despicable and doesn’t represent how the U.S. should be….racist!!! Miller and tRUMP are insane!!!!
