I cried when I saw that video of the mother trying to console her child by his bedside. I cried for the kid who genuinely thought that his mother had abandoned him. I cried for the mother who, when finally reunited with her child after he had been torn from her by force, was rejected by him. I cried for our country who's values are tumbling down to the floor like that child's tears. But most of all I cried because I don't know what I can do to help. Even when I vote in 2020 I can't vote to lift the trauma inflicted on their family. I can't campaign door to door to heal the emotional scars forever gouged into their lives. I can't protest or march to help reconnect the two of them. I beg and plead with the universe to provide me a clear path forward, a way to lend a helping hand and put into action the ideas our country was founded on, but in response all there is silence. A sad, disappointed silence. And so I take the only course of action left to me and cry tears I never thought I'd have to, but that I will not forget until the day die.

Scientists and top military officials told soldiers and other scientists that they had to do these acts on POW’s, interment camp civilians and many other inhuman acts on people. They all also led with the idea statement of they were just following orders! Military tribunals under the Geneva convention thought otherwise and call these acts war crimes to which death to the people who thought they had to follow that order was their final sentence! In medical psychology departments, certain experiments that were created to test human response including the shock test, are considered inhumane and are not authorized to be conducted do to mental implications long term of those involved. Yet why do we feel as a civilized country who know these issues and ramifications allow this bullshit to happen and continue to carry out these experiments on everyday people! Where’s the war crime charges being brought up to the individuals treating border issues as an active war zone? Where are the prison sentences given to the doctors and people behind these separation camps? You have to ask, we as Americans...how did we become so self absorbed to suddenly become the very thing our grandmothers and fathers have bled and died on fields on foreign soil to fight against? If you can’t answer this question without putting your own feelings into, then...this is the problem i am Talking about. If you day its to prevent drugs smuggling, it’s not! It either enters in through florida on boat, or through Texas by vehicle. Marijuana is the biggest supply that even chances the border crossing and the more states that legalize, means more taxes for the state....and less money in cartel hands! Second largest supplier of illegal drugs are meth which is home cooked by many Americans! They would prefer a wall thinking it will make drugs harder to get raising the price of homemade drugs over transported goods. Lastly is synthetics coming in through the mail from China and Indonesia mostly. It’s harder to detect and unless your package is actually scanned at a port of entry, you will most likely have it delivered by Usps within a few days. So again we talk about criminals and in this list...most Americans are criminalizing themselves either by production or order drugs....or by the inhuman ways we are treating others seeking asylum. But remember karma is a bitch, and one day it might be you trying to get away, and the very thing you support will become your downfall due to other nations closing up to Americans as well. So I guess you might say, Americans truly never learned from their past and are doomed to repeat the mistakes of the world.....so give yourself a round of applause and put your hand over your heart and cheer proudly! Because just as Rome fell, we have followed to the point of financial collapse. If not we wouldn’t need to keep borrowing money from other nations that were cutting trade deals with to pay tomorrow’s food, hardship, or wall financial issue. Quick question, Trump did promise that we would all be filthy rich when he was in office just as Mexico would pay for the wall. Anyone who did their research would have realized he was full of shit! So can we as a nation say fuck impeachment and just file a class action lawsuit against trump failing to act in Americans best interest so that maybe he will come clean on one promise when he’s done paying each American he lied too? Are you rich? Did he deliver financial success to you personally? Instead this year many people who struggled with the many jobs to stay afloat as prices rise even in stores, are getting shit for nothing back on taxes or are actually owing this time when you never have before. So I say we sue his ass and make trump organization a shared commodity of all Americans!

The reason I say this, is we elect officials yet never truly hold them accountable! And I say we change that! If these officials hold more regards to organizations that funded their support or pay them off to sign on a bill, then respect their constituents wishes! Well it’s time we take back our government and put people who have no political ties in office that might actually care about their communities.

Do these people even realize how long it takes to be able to become a citizen of this country? A person who wants to acquire a green card can expect to be on a waiting list for years. Heck, it could be up to a DECADE, not to mention the hundreds of papers that one must fill out to get from one step to the next. It’s insane. If we can give good, hard-working people better lives, then why wouldn’t we? It kills me to see conservatives act this way because they don’t practice what they preach. Many of them probably think “what would Jesus do?” but instead, they turn away anyone and everyone who isn’t like them. We need to come together and overcome this. No child should be ripped from their parents just because their parents wanted them to live pleasant lives. How fair is that to those kids?

The illegals are using their children as human shields, and stage props, to gain liberal media attention. Of course, as it has always been, the separation happens. The illegals are just taking advantage of the liberalism in America to cash in and force their illegal entrance.

John Oliver is only pointing out the obvious here, yet I am so moved by this story I am weeping alone. This is absolutely horrific. Poor little Jenrry just gave us all a brief glimpse into what seems to be his experience as a 6 year old in a criminal concentration camp. Children don't naturally say things like that. My opinion is that was planted in his head by cruel men, unfit to console children in general, especially not children who they keeping in cages and separated from their family... This deeply broke my heart. However, thank you, Mr. Oliver, for explaining to the public what is going on as we mindlessly use Facebook and ride the hover round grocery carts waste our money on fried chicken from Walmart. What they hell is wrong with society???

*There never is and there never was a "policy", let alone even a law* telling the Border Patrol, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), or even the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS); that after catching and detaining illegal alien parents with children, to then separate these children from their parents. There isn't even a blanket policy or procedure either. WTF OVER!?!? The FACT of the matter is, is that these agencies do have a responsibility to *protect minors who are in their custody.* This means that the Border Patrol, CBP, ICE, and even DHS will only separate adults and minors under *certain circumstances.* These circumstances include: 1) When the agency is unable to determine the familial relationship 2) When the agency determines that a child may be at risk with the parent or legal guardian, or 3) When the parent or legal guardian is referred for criminal prosecution. Familial Relationship - If there is reason to question the claimed familial relationship between an adult and child, it is not appropriate to detain adults and children together. Human Trafficking and Smuggling - If there is reason to suspect the purported parent or legal guardian of human trafficking or smuggling, the agency detains the adult in an appropriate, secure detection facility, separate from the minor. The agency continues to see instances and intelligence reports indicating minors are trafficked by unrelated adults, posing as a “family” in an effort to avoid detention. Safety Risk - If there is reason to suspect the purported parent or legal guardian poses a safety risk to the child (e.g. suspected child abuse), it is not appropriate to maintain the adult and child together. Criminal Prosecution - If an adult is referred for criminal prosecution, the adult will be transferred to U.S. Marshals Service custody and any children will be classified as an unaccompanied alien child and transferred to the Department of Health and Human Services custody.

If they did then none of them would want to leave in the first place. And can you honestly sit there and tell me with a straight face that these children do in fact, beyond any reasonable doubt, actually belong to these so called parents?

Hi, American woman here. I want to ask why exactly Trump thinks I don't want my country to be filled with "young, strong men". Why would I have an aversion to young, strong men? I mean, as opposed to what, old, weak men? Flabby, orange men? I'm confused as to what the nature of my objection is supposed to be to strong young latino gentlemen. I think he's just scared his wife is going to fuck the pool boy, honestly.

I dont support Trump but its just ridiculous how ideological the american left supports more and more migration. On the other side they refuse to talk about the problems of migration.

At her credible-fear interview, Anita had told the immigration officer the story of her life back in a rural Honduran town distinguished by its Mayan ruins. She sold fruit and cut hair on the side. She got around town by ATV, and took pride in her self-sufficiency and grit. Last year, after a severe car accident, one of her brother’s arms was amputated, and Anita slept on the ground outside of the hospital to ensure he received care. But there was gang violence that made her fear for Jenri’s safety. “I was threatened at gunpoint,” Anita told me. Yeah she fell into some tuff times, but that is not a legitimate reason to just up and leave your entire country, sneak into another one, and then claim asylum. It's obvious that the only reason she brought him with her is because she already knew that she can use him to exploit a loop-hole in the system. She knew that she didn't have a legitimate excuse to claim asylum, therefore she brought her son along to use as a scapegoat to get into this country. (illegally bty). Yeah my son is traumatized for the rest of his life because I knew my piss-poor excuse to claim asylum wasn't going to work so I used him as a fall guy. But as long as the means justify the ends. Right? WTF OVER!?!? The only one here, who I see, abused and made that child suffer is *her.* Leftwing SJW liberals like you, seriously need to start pumping the breaks on your god damn emotions. And instead start focusing more on taking that time and energy in gathering the facts and evidence, of a given situation, before you start opening your friggin emotionally charged mouths. Seriously! Calm the fuck down already will yeah!

+Amanda Zayas I can confidently say "no" and provide an actual solution to the problem. fyi a solution that we have been utilizing since before you were born. Instead of not giving an answer and not providing a solution by bureaucratically dodging the question like you just did. Since *anybody* (including thieves, murders, rapists, drug traffickers, child traffickers, lazy, uneducated, leaches, ect, ect) can claim asylum and/or refugee status; the Border Patrol, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), or even the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS); that after catching and detaining illegal aliens with children, do have a moral, ethical, principle, and logical responsibility to *protect minors who are in their custody.* This means that the Border Patrol, CBP, ICE, and even DHS will only separate adults and minors under *certain circumstances.* These circumstances include: 1) When the agency is unable to determine the familial relationship 2) When the agency determines that a child may be at risk with the parent or legal guardian, or 3) When the parent or legal guardian is referred for criminal prosecution. Familial Relationship - If there is reason to question the claimed familial relationship between an adult and child, it is not appropriate to detain adults and children together. Human Trafficking and Smuggling - If there is reason to suspect the purported parent or legal guardian of human trafficking or smuggling, the agency detains the adult in an appropriate, secure detection facility, separate from the minor. The agency continues to see instances and intelligence reports indicating minors are trafficked by unrelated adults, posing as a “family” in an effort to avoid detention.

Criminal Prosecution - If an adult is referred for criminal prosecution, the adult will be transferred to U.S. Marshals Service custody and any children will be classified as an unaccompanied alien child and transferred to the Department of Health and Human Services custody. Without going through the proper due process of becoming a citizen of this country, which can easily prove beyond any reasonable doubt that these children do in fact belong to them, these agencie have no other choice to do what needs to be done for the safety and wellbeing of the child. Breaking the law, scaring children for life, and becoming a pimple on the ass of progress in a western society is not exactly sending the right kind of message for wanting to become a citizen of this country. If you got a better solution, I'm all ears. If you can't handle a little suffering then you bring on bottomless suffering.

Nobody is saying that you can't claim asylum or refugee status. There is no law that says you can't. *Anybody* can claim all the asylum and/or refugee status they want. However, where the law draws the line is in WHY and HOW you claim your asylum or refugee status. Because since *anybody* ( that includes thieves, murderers, rapists, drug dealers, child traffickers, lazy, uneducated, leaches of society) can claim asylum and/or refugee status, the safety and wellbeing of children is of the utmost importance. Especially when these people are already breaking the law to get here instead of going through the due process of what the laws of this country requires you to do if you want to become a citizen of this country. Breaking the law, scaring children for life, and becoming a pimple on the ass of progress in a western society is not exactly sending the right kind of message for wanting to claim asylum and/or refugee status.

Weird that these conservatives are so bent on making these stupid choices as a way to make the “numbers go down” in terms of who’s entering the country, but they do so under the assumption that foreigners are all dangerous criminals, and will never actually fucking admit that that’s the real reason they’re concerned (because they’re afraid of “young strong foreigners coming for our women and our jobs”) 😑

The damage is already done before refugees ever reach or try to illegally cross the Mexican-US boundary. Are we really that stupid to think that these people have never seen wealthy neighborhoods live or paradisian places of the US in the internet. Anger,anxiety,grief mingles with despair of what has been withheld. Being still with a last spark of hope to escape the old fate... What would you do for it? if you could put worries and fears behind yourself because a newly populated planet with advanced technology and inexhaustible energy supply will promise you your new fortune, won't you like to go to there? Oh sorry, maybe you won't; because you could not make use of your money anymore there, and you also could not build a wall because there would be no more refugees.

Can you honestly sit there and tell me with a straight face that these children do in fact, beyond any reasonable doubt, actually belong to these so called "parents"? Because since anybody (that includes thieves, murders, rapists, drug traffickers, child traffickers, lazy, uneducated, leaches, ect, ect) can simply claim asylum and/or refugee status, the safety and wellbeing of children, who are with these people, is of the utmost importance. If they claimed asylum and/or refugee status the legal way, instead of the illegal way, we would easily know that these children belong to them. But no. They don't want to do it the right way. That obviously says a lot right there. Breaking the law, scaring children for life, becoming a pimple on the ass of progress in a western society is not exactly sending the right kind of message for wanting to claim asylum and/or refugee status.

There isn't even a blanket policy or procedure either. WTF OVER!?!? The FACT of the matter is, is that these agencies do have a responsibility to *protect minors who are in their custody.* This means that the Border Patrol, CBP, ICE, and even DHS will only separate adults and minors under *certain circumstances.* These circumstances include: 1) When the agency is unable to determine the familial relationship 2) When the agency determines that a child may be at risk with the parent or legal guardian, or 3) When the parent or legal guardian is referred for criminal prosecution. Familial Relationship - If there is reason to question the claimed familial relationship between an adult and child, it is not appropriate to detain adults and children together. Human Trafficking and Smuggling - If there is reason to suspect the purported parent or legal guardian of human trafficking or smuggling, the agency detains the adult in an appropriate, secure detection facility, separate from the minor. The agency continues to see instances and intelligence reports indicating minors are trafficked by unrelated adults, posing as a “family” in an effort to avoid detention. Safety Risk - If there is reason to suspect the purported parent or legal guardian poses a safety risk to the child (e.g. suspected child abuse), it is not appropriate to maintain the adult and child together. Criminal Prosecution - If an adult is referred for criminal prosecution, the adult will be transferred to U.S. Marshals Service custody and any children will be classified as an unaccompanied alien child and transferred to the Department of Health and Human Services custody. *"Journalism at its best!"* PLEEEEEASE!

+Stephen2462 How many times do I have to tell you. Nobody is saying that it is illegal to claim asylum. Anybody can claim all the asylum they want. There's no law that says you can't. Since *anybody* can claim asylum or refugee status, where the law draws line to establish eligibility for asylum or refugee status, you must prove you are either the victim of past persecution or you have a well-founded fear of future persecution. In the case of past persecution, you must prove that you were persecuted in your home country or last country of residence. The persecution must have been based on at least one of five grounds, either your: •race •religion •nationality •political opinion, or •membership in a particular social group. Illegally crossing the border and then making a piss-poor excuse like "I'm here to work." or "I was mugged by gangs." or "I have children." in order to claim asylum or refugee status is not gonna cut it. www.alllaw.com/articles/nolo/us-immigration/who-eligible-asylum-refugee-protection.html (asylum eligibility)

They're not. I asked you if you can prove, beyond any reasonable doubt, that these children actually do in fact belong to these so called "parents"? You said no. Which is why they need to be separated until this has been confirmed. If you got a better idea then I'm all ears. If you can't handle a little suffering then you bring on bottomless suffering. Obama separated children too. They still separated children from their parents, *under certain circumstances,* ( www.dhs.gov/news/2018/06/18/myth-vs-fact-dhs-zero-tolerance-policy ) The border patrol, CBP, ICE, & DHS still did this under Obama.

+BenJamin Croft No, I don't think that this happens on a regular basis. I never heard any evidence about such a situation. I don't know how much asylum seekers are checked on a regular basis in the long run in the USA. If they are confronted with social workers and the youth welfare office on a regular basis they won't be able to give the children away which would contradict the whole point of child trafficking. Also child prostitution wouldn't be easy to hide. If you're really afraid of immigrants pretending to be parents of kidnapped children, there are many better ways to hinder them from doing this than seperating blindly all children from their parents: - ask for formulars - if they don't have any (also if they have) interrogate the parents and speak with the children - attend the family on a regular basis - speak with teachers and other persons of trust for the children I really never heard about child trafficking masked as immigration, neither in Europe nor in the USA. Before one takes action against such a rare thing one should think about a plan that doesnt hurt any other innocent people.
BenJamin Croft
BenJamin Croft Month ago
+Klaus Heiszt A child trafficker can easily manipulate the child. After being with them for so long they become dependent upon them. Which makes it easy for them to teach the child what to say. Just tell them I am your mother, you're from here, your father's name is this, this is our last name, ect. ect, or they'll take you away from me and I'll never see you again. Ok? You don't think this kind of stuff doesn't happen on a regular basis? Especially at the border? When they know for a fact that if you bring children with you you'll get a free ride? If you can't handle a little suffering then you bring on bottomless suffering.

+BenJamin Croft Of course. And I'm saying: The likeliness of causing damage to the children's life is way higher when you seperate them from their parents than going for the phantasized risk of yours that some parents could pretend to be the parents of some children. The pragmatic question would be: how do you prove wether the parents are actually the parents or not? I don't know how this works for most asylum seekers' home countries - they probably have the papers? But if not: do you just seperate them because of a wild guess? Nah, ask the children, keep contact to the families, in order to see if there are any bad cases but jesus christ, just don't take children away from their parents. This is just pure cruelty.

This is somewhat ridiculous. Sure, requesting asylum is fine, but there're two things that need to be understood. Requesting asylum is REQUESTING it. It does NOT grant you immigration rights. Second, the request can be and SHOULD be denied in some instances. I'm from South America, Colombia and I guarantee you, 99% of the people "Persecuted" are just using it as a scapegoat to a better country. They're not TRULY in danger. Now keep in mind these criminals (Those who illegally cross) take their children with them on their own accord and it is THEIR decision, and as the children parents, THEIR fault. If the parents are treated as criminals and sent back, and until that happens the children get separated, that is fully on the PARENTS responsibility, NOT the law enforcement. So why don't you make a show instead, aimed AT the parents to NOT bring their children illegally to another country? - If the person requesting asylum goes through the process and it is found that the person TRULY is escaping persecution (Which they most often than not, aren't because guess... people lie) Then there is no need to separate parents from children. If the parent is found to have committed a criminal act, the law should be applied, regardless of whether or not we feel sorry for the poor families.
