    The most ridiculous and ironic thing about immigration right now is that the reason so many more migrants are coming to the US is because of Trump. Because of everything he has been saying they think it is their last chance before he blocks all immigration.

    Would you consider a subtle message on your show ( or not so subtle)to your viewers to box up toothpaste, toothbrushes and soap to send to to the children detainees. After all a full size tube of toothpaste is only a dollar at the dollar store. We could flood the detention centers with American citizen’s generosity, and send a message that many of us don’t agree with the president’s inhumane policies

    politifact found that they existed under bush and Obama...but called them "rare"...which is a spin word to hide the fact that they existed and Trump did not start separations ... also..why are democrats and liberals pushing so hard for the rights of non citizens illegally entering the country?? there are crisis issues affecting REAL citizens and voters that need to be addressed.

If Trump ever returns to Scotland we may have to detain him under our Mental Health Act Laws which I think would be for the best !!!!!!

    Though global warming naysayers outwardly and angrily deny ‘artificially induced climate change’, that’s just the fear talking thru a “very small hole”. They know as well as the rest of us that a deluge of climate change refugees is inevitable. Indeed, a goodly number of the current group of those stopped at the border are in this category.
    So, those who feel morally righteous now need to ask themselves what’s to been done in the future when our lack of intelligence and weak resolve to combat global warming sends millions and millions more refugees our way?

    Last great hope for mankind? What? Adventurism in the Middle East has wrecked the entire Muslim world and made many of them our enemies but your country is the best hope? America caused many of the issues from which Latin Americans are running with their decades of interfence for oil and you are doing the exact same thing to Venezuela right now! Your entire country is corrupted as all hell and now you are torturing refugees. Not a good look Murica.

    Only people who have nvr been to jail. Seem to think its much worse. Having looked at all the pictures and listening to all the coverage. And having myself been in several jails. Atleast 8 over 20 years, maybe more. I know for a fact that jails are worse. An the way innocent americans are housed with rapists & murders. Sleeping on floors because of severe overcrowding. I've slept next to toilets with people who had open sores from staff infections lying just feet away from me. With no blankets pillows tooth paste soap. Very little to eat. Surrounded by gangs. Those people got it easy compared to some of the places I've been.
    And if yall arent careful that dudes going to win a 2nd term. Cause my fellow democrats put to much focus on the wrong issues. And just about every1 thats running sucks. Thier either to far left for the country, or to old.

    Do we want open borders or not in this country? Every nation in the world defends their borders, and that includes Mexico and Honduras -- with their own military on their borders. People in South America have been repeatedly warned not to come here illegally, and to use the legal process.

      @Mary Hunter You're right -- it is insane. You do the math 100K a month are coming when we actually have some deportations going on. You tell me how many will come if we just erase all enforcement of our immigration laws? Eliminate ICE etc...

      @gmkbelanger They never acknowledge that there are other countries out there that have the same stuff that the United States has. We get all the stories about everything being awful everywhere else. I think that they know that they could lose all of the population that are currently in debt up to their balls in student loans, if those people saw how easy it was just to move out of the U.S. and never return.

      @walkingdeadman19 I heard that the same way you did. I don't ever disagree with Colbert, but that's too much to swallow. Why does the USA think they are the only democratic nation with free speech and compassionate ideals??? The rest of the Western World and many many countries elsewhere as well have free and fair elections (without gerrymandering and the Electoral College), freedom of speech (without catering to hate speech), universal health care (without astronomical deductibles and obscene prices for drugs) law and order (without tanks for the police, more guns than people. and absurd rates of incarceration), freedom of the press (with the understanding that the press is the safeguard of freedom and transparency), free public education (without private schools siphoning resources and crippling public education), growing economies (without the hideously lopsided gulf between the top 1% and everyone else), healthy, peaceful societies (with human rights for ALL, without entrenched systemic racism, without punishing desperate refugees for their desperation, with access to reproductive health care, and without spending trillions on the world's most bloated military), and advancement in Science and Technology (without suppressing climate change data and ignoring evidence). The USA could benefit from looking around at the rest of us a little more. *rant mode off*

    • Mary Hunter

      @yaimavol - Okay, perhaps you are not lying but just very dumb. No one paid 'the russians' for info on trump. An American firm was hired. Their employee collected information and reported his findings.
      You've been lied to. No one paid 'the russians'. That would be illegal.
      Mr. Steele just did a job and collected info on Trump while working for a US firm. Why do defenders of Trump always twist the truth? Conspiracy theories usually aren't true. Do some fact checking for a change. It might broaden your horizon.
