    So stupid, ANY person arrested is separated from their children and yes they are criminals that need to be arrested and deported as quickly as possible. I don't get a pass to break the law and neither should they. If people don't like how they are treated when they break into our country illegally maybe they should consider doing it the right way.

    what is upsetting about this video - is that so many fools who scream in outrage - when they have NO IDEA what caused the kid to cry. 10 seconds before this clip - the mother beat the kid's bare ass with a leather belt - when he cried because she gave his dog away. Did you know that? Did ya?
    this kid is hungry and misses sunday dinner with his friends at the border's holding center. did you know that? his rickets are hurting his bones again and he misses dinner at the border. Did you know THAT?
    maybe instead of leaving their own country - they should take their energy to join forces and build a decent education system and government of their own, the above stories are not true - but do serve to highlight - you have no freaking idea why this kid is crying. I wonder why, dear commentator - has john oliver made you cry and yet you sit there in front of your computer rather than purchasing airfare to go there to volunteer your services for their country.
    and for all the demonrats - CLINTON's NAFTA crippled these countries financially by excluding them in fair trade negotiations with larger countries. CLINTON - yes - HILLARY's husband delivered MS13 to el salvador on a silver plate. HE created the gangs and f-ed them financially. The democratic congress ALSO created the laws which separates the families. TRUMP - did not say "separate families" - you retards - he SAID "enforce the law" Sessions said "0 TOLERANCE" - enforce what ever laws we have - because "0 enforcement' was occurring. Its great policy if it works to deter people from breaking the law - or kidnapping someone's kid to gain entry into the USA - or human trafficking. OBVIOUSLY these kids are well treated by the folks housing them - or this kid would not want to go back. You crybabies see everything as an OFFENSE - I am so blessed sick of it - take your victimhood crybaby pansy assed selves to central america and help the people there by volunteering if it matters so much to you. go see suffering. Go to New Delhi, and people watch. Itd be good for ya to make a real contribution rather than whine on the gd internet.
    no wonder 20% of americans are on antidepressants - ya depress me when i realize the level of actual commitment out there versus the level of stupidity and the incessant freaking whinning.
    whinning should not be PC -
    TOUGHEN the freak up - like a bunch of cry babies your own selves. a bunch of pussyassed cry babies crying victim over and over - ignore this shit -life can be HARD - ya fall off your bike - you don't scream and holer at the bike and cry victim of bicycling -

    Love how stuck up in their asses Amercians are, yeah i know not all of them though it ceritanly feel like most, but it's incredible to see them beliving how great they are and they don't relize that most of the rest of the world hate them. People don't migrate there beacuase it's a great country... they do su because is better than they current situation, and their current situation is reallly bad. It's just like Venezuelans entering my country, not because my country is doing great, but because it is better than theirs, and that makes me just wonder. How fucking bad are things in Venezuela....
    I have always thought that USA it's not a first world country.. its just that poor lonely ignorant cousin nobody loves who just managed to win the lottery and become rich. They have money, houses, etc. but are still as ignorant and stupid as always, only now arrogant because of the money.

    John, why you don't make a search about why Trump keeps insisting to build a wall knowing that it will not stop illegal immigrants to cross the border of the USA? It's too obvious that Trump will get a lot of money to his own account bringing a lot of profit to his companies. Let's say the over cost $21.6 billion, his companies should be involved in this and he will own extra billions out of nothing just by marketing the idea to the Amercian public. What I mean is can't you uncover the missing pictures of the idea of the wall which is corruption? In some countries, they make new roads for example with an actual cost of let's say 1 billion, but they publish the total cost at 6 billion, so 5 billion in pockets as Trump's case against immigrants.

    The GOP doesn't want immigrants bc they immediately become part of a group that, statistically, mostly votes for Democrats, and also, they're racists, and don't want more POC in general, but especially now that America is on the cusp of being a minority majority country. Hispanics have more Native American blood than Euro blood, so really, they were here first. There's plenty of money is this country, it's just that the greedy 1% are taking far more than they need. I think asylum seekers should be allowed in this country, if they're running from persecution and violence, ESPECIALLY ppl running from MS-13 considering it was Reagan's failed Central American policies that CREATED MS-13. It's ironic, really, that ppl who are descended from the most violent appalling rapey germ war faring invaders in history, are afraid of being invaded by ppl whose ancestors were here first. The people in the caravan deserve asylum, they prob have more claim to being Americans than any of the ppl in the Trump admin, or most of his supporters, and they're impoverished, persecuted ppl who NEED our help. Americans used to hve compassion, but now, so many whites are afraid of being a majority minority country. Actually, America is starting to look like more how it looked before white settlers committed genocide. If our country truly regrets the violence of our past, we can start by really thinking of the US as a melting pot, and the typical American as someone who can be any color, not just white.

    Yes, completely ignore what has been going on for the last 3-4 decades and blame everything on the current administration. Too bad the LEFT seem to be too ignorant to see this for what it is, a propaganda piece. It is clear that people like Oliver relies on the LEFT being ignorant of history and the nuances of this whole immigration problem and purposely spinning the narrative to simply: "Trump is a racist". All I see here is complaints about a situation that have been a problem for decades but not ONE TALK about a realistic solution and only wanting to vilify Trump. This is not some story book fairy tale with a bad villain name Trump, this is real life and like REAL LIFE there are NO PERFECT solutions, just crappy ones that you HAVE TO choose from. How naive these LEFTist are in eating up this twisted narrative is ridiculous. Not thinking for yourself, just blindly following their political narrative like sheep and being manipulated by their emotions. The worst part here is that a wall WILL limit this problem and prevent more family separation from happening not to mention solve a whole bunch of other problems like drug smuggling and human trafficking. It will be expensive and maybe not the most ideal situation, but it is a reasonable solution considering the alternatives. But no... we can't even talk about a REASONABLE solutions because any solutions that prevents illegal immigration is perceived to be RACIST by the LEFT. SAD!

    Missing children and no trace of them is no accident. They may have ended up an human trafficking or a pediaphilia ring. Why else would they separate children unless there was a guarantee that a percentage of innocent migrant children slip through the cracks with no records from an incompetent system. With no records no one knows who they are, and their parents are unable to fight to look for them.

    What I don't understand is probably pretty basic, and maybe it's because I'm not from the US, nor cared to learn much about law. But here if you are a parent and commit a crime, the kid goes to their closest relative, and if they don't want it or simply there are no relatives around, they become a ward of the state, which means living in state run facilities or foster homes. Illegal immigration is a crime in the US, hence the word illegal in the title. So why should they be treated differently than other criminals awaiting trial? Where I live, if it's a misdemeanor, you simply get deported back to your country, and if it's a crime you're tried under local law, or so I understand.
    Granted we practically have no borders, so we're flooded with migrants, which is ruining the economy, since they're mostly educated migrants, doing skilled labor at reduced costs, which basically screws the college educated middle class because corporations, or even little entrepreneurs like me can hire professionals cheaper than ever. But it's because we have no legislation against it. You guys have laws. I'd be pissed off if someone could not only go into my country and also break the law by virtue of doing so illegally, and get different treatment than I would for commiting a crime.
    I'm not really condoning anything. I'm honestly just trying to understand how laws work. Because so far, to my understanding, they're following exactly what they'd do to a criminal awaiting trial, and I don't see how that is wrong.

      Trump was able to break out of his inherited social position, climb up the social ladder and create a new identity for himself.
      The importance is the success of the individual, if he/she is realized, they can consider themselves "self made".
      The origin doesn't matter. What matters is to be prepared for obstacles on the way to your own future and to be self made to get to this objective. It's not about money, it's about your own personal goal.

    i am shocked to listen what some people are saying in favour to what trump did,,,and this is what i have to say: you can be a nazi or an angel, but there is no one that wants to be separated from their kids,,,i mean,,,no one,,,is that so difficult to believe.
    its amazing that Americans are always saying they live in the best country in the world,,,but when they go to europe they love it more,,,so its europe better or america? who is more environmental better? who provides a better national social security and better democracy? i am confused on why there is so much love for america when in fact america changes day by day from the constant fuck ups in politics.
    one day i can see Americans that i call, the trumping role models, killing people just because some of them are not patriotic enough,,is america that great or being american is? and for who?
    just like the Taliban or the Islamic state, patriotism and fanaticism will kill people at the end of the day or in the near future.
    i am capable to place another question for them: is there any real Americans who are protesting against immigration right now? real people or people for real? not sure.
    arent Americans a mere combination of various DNA from immigration?
    arent the real native Americans abandoned by the new Americans now-a-days?
    why more often modern Americans resemble the cowboy figure made by john Wayne,,a true patriotic immigrant, a man in his middle life crises and also a occupier who invaded a country, forcing with blood their own laws? especially the to natives one to run away(the true real Americans)?
    arent the republicans doing the same think now, just like a cowboy movie?
    also,,why conservatives are so prone of Christianity and church? and why in hell they think god should support children being taken away from their parents?,crazy Americans , i think.
    one think i notice quite often about trump; he talks what he thinks, rather than thinking what he should talk,,,that is an amazing combination of stupid laws enforcement made by stupid american people working inside a stupid White house.
    trump has been placed by stupid voters inside a divided stupid country where half of them are really clever and the other half dont have a proper education.
    to all assassins coming form Honduras, do you know america did kill more foreigners in their home land than the other way around? and that is a fact.

      What do you mean, *"what did we do???"?* It's that so called mother's fault for entering the country illegally in the first place. Hence, having her child removed and then placed in already overly crowded child services agencies, due to the high influx of immigrants illegally entering this country with children, therefore being separated for an extended period of time, and then resulting in his traumatized behavior.
      The same can be said for you too. Because *you* inhaled screw, it's somehow everyone else's fault that you were separated from your mother? And because of *your* own actions and the obvious bad supervision by your mother, that it's somehow everyone else's fault that you are now traumatized? WTF OVER!?!?

      You mean the truth that Oliver conveniently left out that *there never is and there never was 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 PEOPLE!?!?
      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.
      This is her fault that her child was traumatized like that. Not the government's and not Trump's.

      +007kingifritThat was Ted Cruz's misleading point because children are separated at the border.
      And more to this...
      "Gilman said Cruz’s claim misleads in part by suggesting parents are getting shuttled into criminal jails and then children, newly unaccompanied, quickly must be handed off to the refugee resettlement office.

      What actually happens, Gilman wrote, is that parents and children are detained in a border facility and children are taken from parents while the family is at the facility, before criminal charges are brought. Next, Gilman wrote, children are taken into custody and away from the facility by refugee resettlement staff. Only then, Gilman said, are the parents criminally prosecuted before being given a sentence of time served, "which really is just the time spent at the border facility," Gilman said.

      Next, Gilman said, parents are returned to the border facility "but the child is already gone." At that point, the parents are typically sent to an adult immigration detention facility to spend several months--even if they’re successful in passing an asylum screening interview and getting released on bond, Gilman wrote.

      Su called Cruz’s claim technically correct but misleading in that it leaves the inaccurate impression that the government, by policy and law, has no choice but to separate children from parents.
      "The Trump administration’s hands were not forced," Su wrote. "There are multiple ways that separation could be avoided and the nation's interest in immigration adjudication and removal could still be maintained. But the ‘zero tolerance’ policy of detaining and criminally prosecuting all immigrants, even those who arrived with children, is what has led to this."
      "So yes," Su said, "Cruz is right that once you have make the decision to send the parents to jail, separation may be necessary because Flores generally forbids the government from detaining children in jail," Su wrote."
      This is from politifact...
      But hold on... I want to add my own 2 cent, which is that many parents with kids are seeking asylum and that's 100% legal and doesn't make them criminals. To place them in jail is just making a dick move by unfit, pathological liar administration.

    America is not responsible for every country that has made poor choices. The children aren't separated just to be cruel. The kids are taken care of until they sort things out. This is the worst kind of propaganda. I swear I'm this close to just voting republican because lately they are the only party that seems to have their shit together.

      *There never is and there never was 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 PEOPLE!?!?
      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.
      This is all on these so called "parents" who illegally enter into this country to begin with. It's not the government's fault nor any administration's fault either. This is all on those illegal immigrants.

      The President recently postulated that an amendment to the constitution is itself unconstitutional, and campaigned on eliminating the national debt in 8 years while also increasing spending and cutting taxes (which is mathematically impossible), and THAT is the party you think has it's shit in order? You have a weird sense of what "in order" looks like.
      OF COURSE the children are being separated just to be cruel, because that's absolutely in Trumps wheelhouse. He campaigned on General Pershing killing Muslims with ammo dipped in the blood of pigs to send a message (even though that never actually happened), he supported blocking a quarter of the worlds population from entering the country based simply on how they pray, he's talked about completely eliminating foreign aid and cutting treaties with countries like Japan and South Korea that desperately need our help and protection solely because "we're not getting a good deal". When the President of Mexico said there is no way they are going to pay for Trumps proposed border wall, at a campaign speech he said he's going to make ten feet taller now just out of spite. The idea of making the process of deportation intentionally cruel and emotionally painful as a means to deter people from wanting to risk entering the country is completely how Donald Trump thinks.

      While countries are allowed to set their own conditions for granting asylum (such as not considering economic situation proper grounds for an asylum claim), dissuading legitimate asylum seekers, penalizing them for illegal entry (if they present themselves as asylum seekers), or refouling asylum seekers (sending them back to places they are fleeing) all violate the 1951 Refugee Convention.

      +TigerLiLLy ThatOneGirl Secondly, I'm not afraid of helping anyone because it doesn't take anything from me.
      I want to help these people. But breaking the law, scaring children for life, and becoming a pimple on the ass of progress in a society, is not a good start in convincing me to wanting to offer any kind of help.
      And thirdly, YES and YES. How many times do I have to tell you this!?
      We have to *first* ascertain on whether or not these children do in fact belong to these so called "parents". Because nobody knows anything about anyone who comes across the border illegally. That's why they are temporarily separated.
      *This is not torture.* And because the immigration system and child services departments are so poorly manned, poorly funded, and poorly equipped to handle this overwhelming influx of aliens coming into the country, it's no wonder why these kids get separated longer than they should be. Which is why I'm in favor of strengthening our borders, fyi building a wall and pumping the necessary funds and resources into the immigration departments and programs. Not to mention the child services departments and programs too.
      Can you honestly sit there and tell me, with a straight face, that these children do in fact, beyond any reasonable doubt, belong to these so called "parents"? If the safety and welfare of a child is that important to you, then what necessary steps are you going to have to take in order to insure that?

    I can't even imagine. I'm a single dad and I couldn't imagine even having to go through one day after my kids were forcibly removed from my custody. And I'm a reasonably well adjusted adult. Doing this to defenseless children is a crime against humanity. I think the main problem is that Trump is so desperate to be separated from his own children that he's once again projecting, like all right wingers seem to be doing these days. Snideness aside, Donald Trump and anyone else in his administration who had a hand in this, every ICE agent who participated, every contractor hired by the government to make this possible and anyone else who in any way had anything to do with tearing vulnerable children away from their parents and locking them up should be prosecuted for crimes against humanity. This isn't even one of those scenarios where you have to be a parent to feel the disgust and outrage any decent person would have as a result of hearing about separating families like this. Family separation was what became the litmus test for whether Trump supporters had any decency, morality or humanity left. Anyone who can support Donald Trump and his regime after separating innocent children from their parents because their parents tried to make a better life for them is no longer a human being. They chose to shed their humanity, morality and any decency they might have once possessed when the decided to continue supporting Trump after this. It sickens and saddens me that there are people I feel I can no longer associate with (some family members included) due to their complete lack of any of the ideals that allow us to be called civilized human beings. It's no longer about political differences. It's so far beyond politics that I strongly believe there's no coming back to humanity for people who still support the Trump regime.

    What the fuck, my parents were taken away when I was 13 bc of a mis-filed visa. I was lucky to have family to support me. God where you at we need some intervention here, I can't stop thinking about it

    Hasn't this separation of families been going on for longer than 10 years? That is what i heard atleast.
    And if so, why was it no problem under Obama?

      SilentToe Because it wasn’t the same? Literally a clip of Trump talking about how the old system worked albeit with him fear mongering it. They were processed and released awaiting trial.

      The presence or absence of a wall does not change what is or is not acceptable or even logical behavior for how we treat suspected or confirmed illegals who are already here.

    Republican: Mexico is a shithole. Liberal: That's offensive, it's a great country! Republican: Okay, so people are safe there. Liberal: We can't make people wait weeks there, they are persecuted asylum seekers! ... Get that straight pls. Either Mexico is fine to stay in for a while or it's a shithole everyone needs to leave immedeately. Hint - A shithole is a shithole because of the people living there.

      fascist? Wake the fuck up. Fascist is telling me I can't say what I want because it hurts your feelings. Fascist is hitting me, scratching up my car, tearing up my sign or throwing urine on me for my opinions. What is the first thing fascists do when they take over a cuntry? They take the weapons. In feudal japan it was swords. Stalin and hitler both took guns. With 3d printing, there is no way to keep people from making guns, so we might as well have as many trained, responsible citizens owning guns as we can. Organized crime cannot exist without the permission of the police forces, local and federal. The police forces cannot become corrupt with an attentive and responsible government. No government will be responsible to its people if it does not fear its people. If a government removes all guns out of the population's hands, it has zero reason to fear those people. Our founding fathers knew this, and wrote it down so we would know our responsibility against tyranny. We were founded on the fourth amendment, the one against unwarranted search and seizure. Now we have the patriot act, which takes it away. Now we have secret fisa courts. April 19 1775.

    To be clear : I completely oppose the concept of family seperation.
    However, the video with the little kid is not a valid argument. We as a people may find this clip sad because of the things tis kid said to his mother. But if you change the context the whole story changes. For instance : try telling a kid they can't join a friend to go to disneyworld. You might get the exact same reaction.
    I'm just trying to say that this clip (however sad it may be and it is) is no proof of psychological damage.

      +64PINK256 The other solution is not separate them unless it is absolutely necessary, which it isn't. Your "solution" is completely tone-deaf : how and why would someone risk crossing the border illegally, hoping for a better life on the other side, and leave their child(ren), in most cases the entire reason for seeking a better life in the first place. Plus, that aside, you are still creating a separation of families and the potential for trauma is still there, so you haven't fixed anything, other than it being a self-inflicted would rather than it being an easily preventable wound inflicted by President Orange Is The New Black.

      +c0nd0rd4myt solution? Don't bring your kid if you are going to do something illegal.

      Except a kid eventually isn't going to be emotionally damaged about not going to Disneyland months after the fact. The kid is clearly emotionally devastated even months after being reunited.
