    Echo chambers are so tranquil. Grab your purple Kool- aid and try one today. Also, denying droves of refugees(which requires almost unfathomable amount of federal tax to dollars legally provide based on UN regulations. ) is the worst atrocity since we "denied entry to Jews after WW2" because denying refugees is way worse than killing the most unifying, forward thinking civil rights leader that should face EVER been president and literally revolutionized the way all people behave and think . And, did it with peace, non- violent resistance, and love. ! Wow!

    You people are stoopid for believing all this crap. Elijah Cummings in an honorable man of integrity? Please! The president is putting children in cages by themselves? Yeah, right! If only liberals had a speck of his decency.

    Elijah Cummings
    Is a racist and belongs to Black Supremacist groups. NCAAP and The Black Caucus. The Black Cacus and NCAAP promotes one race, black, over others. It is also divisive and excludes other races. Black Supremacy will not be tolerated nor his Racist views and attacks on DHS,ICE, and our Border Patrol Agents. Stop The Hate.

    Hey liberals! Obama started catch and release so he didn’t have to deal with looking bad for enforcing the laws. It’s the very reason that the crisis has gotten so bad. And here’s just 2 articles from your very own liberal sources that show the result of his stupid ideas.

    Why this DHS guy can't or won't honestly answer? Because the US system is one of hire or fire from one day to the next. Nóbody has the balls to say or confirm that this is an outrageous situation. Why? Caus' they'll be fired the next day. There's no protection for honesty.

    Pretty transparent and idiotic when you see these panels of MSM invite a republican and 3 or 4 libs to debate and screaming about nazi behavior and republicans are rasists etc. Dont see the point in jioning these debates at all. If you are coming to a country illegal you should be detained, libs want them to be granted citizentship and full rights, they even want illegal immigrants to have the right to vote. Libs are crazy.

    Butt heads. This has got to be some of the deepest bull crap of all. When are you demorats going to pass funding for immigration? Don't you racists remember when Pelosi took off to Hawaii rather than vote on immigration? Why do you racists keep letting people suffer at the border, than say it's Trump's fault. Why don't you lying racists get a job?

    Elijah Cummins outrage is how Trump should be reacting. Instead the draft dodger shows no empathy, as a matter of fact, he seems to like what is happening to those people. Mike Pence, what can I say? He's even a bigger monster than Trump the dodger. The reason Pencedejo is a bigger monster than Trump is because he thinks God is on his side. No different than isis. They both claim they do God's work. When in reality they do the complete opposite.

    Rather than using the border crisis for Propagana MSNBC should do a show on the HUMANITARIAN CRISIS with all the homeless scattered all over the streets of Seattle, Portland, L.A. San. Francisco..and other cities run by Democrats. along with the garbage and feces all over the streets. Democratic run cities going down the toilet because of failed liberal policies...Libs have no problem stepping over them to get to the BMW...they are a joke

    Dont' believe the Fake Liberal Compassion!! They could careless about the border it's nothing but Pandering for votes...THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT MORAL GOOD PEOPLE....The Democrats have turned the city of Seattle into a drug, crime, and violence cesspool of filth. Theres homeless sleeping in the streets, human feces and garbage spread everywhere. The Democrats created this by their own failed policies. It's amazing the Liberals have no problem stepping over the homeless closing their eyes to these problems. Democrats are running cities and states into the ground. Democrats are creating a Humanitarian crisis in our own country but scream about the border...

    Trump Supporters should be separated from their kids!! Crossing the border to Mexico, Canada, anywhere -- Americans should be separated from their kids and partners at the borders!! Indefinitely. Then only reunited after paying ALL expenses of the separation!!!!!! At least pull aside all Americans and find out what Party they vote for - then ..

    "migrants" the politically correct term is illegal. and very perturbed that dems and reps continue to leverage illegals over citizenry. where is the inquiry as to why there are citizens sleeping on the streets. where is the inquiry as to why targeted individuals that are citizens, such as myself continue being vilified for utilizing our right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. Where is the outrage for US?Why I'm running for President as an Independent, not jewpendent.join my campaign: Restructuring America For A Better Tomorrowcashapp: $RugarMM

    The dems could have fixed this issue months ago but the denied it was a crisis and grandstanded. Dems, work with our duly elected President to fix the immigration law loopholes, build the wall and send these criminal invaders back to their country of origin. The path to citizenship/asylum does not involve climbing fences, swimming across rivers or breaking the laws of a sovereign nation.

    He's only ending asylum for & targeting black & brown people. You don't hear any of this illegal alien, refugee crap about white people. You don't hear anything about ICE rounding up any white people. You NEVER hear of white ppl being told to go back to their country. This is all about black and brown. AmeriKKKa at its best. Doing what its always done best. Hate

    I wish -- I really, really wish -- I could believe that there will be consequences *before* we follow in the footsteps of Nazi Germany all the way to places like Sachsenhausen, Bergen-Belsen, Dachau, Buchenwald, Treblinka, and all the rest... but until I see some goddamned action taken by our Congress, until I see repercussions for the vile human filth that chanted such completely un-American garbage at that rally (and others), until I see enough people come out in resistance to this idea that treating human beings in this fashion as a matter of course, NO MATTER THE CIRCUMSTANCES, is not only acceptable but preferable to decent human behavior (see enough come out in resistance to such an idea that those who hold it are ashamed/afraid to show their faces in public)... I am very much afraid I can't. More and more such claims as the Republicans are going to pay a political price, etc., sound very much like whistling past the graveyard to me. Growing up, I thought our country had hit bottom during the Nixon years with the hateful divisiveness of those who simply could not get it through their heads that flag-waving superpatriotic persiflage does NOT translate into genuine love for country, and who therefore attacked, condemned, and often drove into exile those who simply wanted for this country to be the very best it can be. I really did. I was wrong. Compared to what I'm seeing now, that time was a walk through the park; a Sunday School picnic. Please, please, please, people: PROVE ME WRONG!
