  1. So, were any of the White Owners arrested??? Comrade Trump had a great many undocumented workers working for his family from the beginning, and ofc they knew – they could pay them less as a result. This horrible event could be prevented if they allowed work permits.

  2. And the companies that hired undocumented people will just keep going with a "shame on you" and keep hiring undocumented people to pay them less. No punishment at all for these companies. Disgraceful. Inhumane. Disgusting.

  3. Why are they handcuffing people? Is that some weird stock-standard American thing? I thought your only cuff people who are possibly dangerous?

  4. Whoever hired them should be accountable. They had no paperwork why did y'all hire them. Cause they work for almost free.

  5. The plan is for the Prisoners to.work thoes jobs for FREE…pay attention the prison industry complex is working with the corruption politicians

  6. Why aren't you fighting this fascist in the White House Americans? Are you really this selfish and ignorant? I don't get it. There have been so many protests during the Vietnam war but today everyone is just too busy watching Netflix or go shopping on amazon. It's just absolutely pathetic.

  7. Just making sure I understand this correctly… Illegal immigrants were detained for being in this country illegally.  I’m outraged.

  8. The next time we vote for a president lets make a good decision and not vote for a HORRIBLE AND STUPID ANIMAL THAT IS SO HEARTLESS AND LEAVING CHILDREN TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES! THIS IS HONESTLY HORRIBLE YOU WHITE PEOPLE THINK YOUR SO RIGHT ABOUT US HISPANICS! YOUR SO STUPID AND ARE A DISGRACE! And thank you to all the Americans who agree with us Hispanics thank you!

  9. Well that's what Cheeto said when he brought 78 H2B visa undocumented immigrants to work at his clubs!!! He said they couldn't find Americans to do the jobs!!! Why not? This went on repeatedly!!! My guess is he didn't want to pay them a livable wage and he knew they wouldn't complain. This went on until he got busted!!!

  10. But what about tomorrow and tomorrow for these poor kids. Their lives are now filled with fear and without their parents in an instant. And first day back at school – how desperately sad.

  11. Come into country illegally, don't show up for court, bye. I wonder what happens if Americans don't show-up for court? What happens to their kids?

  12. Hmmm, foods gonna get very expensive. Illegal or not, we depend on them. Their employers should help them get citizenship. Don't make the children victims of Trump.

  13. Trump and his ICE go after the law-abiding, working illegals and ignore the real criminals because it is easy to catch these. Where are all the Americans who wanted those low paying jobs at food processing plants who did not get jobs because of the illegals? Where is the rush to fill this void? Between Trump laughing and bragging about the size of the crowds at his last rally in El Paso while at the hospital supposedly to visit the injured from the shooting to this. Oh yea, his words and actions are really bringing people together. How together he is going to find out in the next election.

  14. No human should be deported from USA , open border is the answer. I don't understand why USA does not want anyone to come , they should open the border and let everyone to come no manner if has money or not or visa .

  15. Why doesn't Trump direct ICE to raid Wall Street and arrest all migrants illegaly stealing American jobs there? No migrant stock brokers? Migrants don't want sleepy, high paying American jobs? They would rather keep Americans from good jobs picking produce and processing meat! C'mon, quit being so stupid! Soon we will be buying food from Russia. How is it Trump supporters are so freaking STUPID! Just a bunch of ignorant, self- rightous, entitled Republican's. It's time to eliminate that disease – it's time EVERYONE voted Demacrat and restore some civility , honor and at least a degree of honosty to our government! Trump's gotta go! Trump's gotta go now! What a. p.o.s.!

  16. Yet not a single business owner was arrested? Shocking! This country is pathetic! A true shithole country is one that has the means to change but chooses not to. A country that puts corporations above its humans is a disgrace. We are a shithole!

  17. What about the immigrants that work at Trump’s hotels, golf courses and resorts.
    The problem with Trump is that he always had everything laid out in front of him on a silver platter, and he used his rich father to help him dodge the draft…. 🤷🏻‍♂️ Trump does not understand the concept of running a country.

  18. Name and give addresses for the employers – and their kids!! Kidnap them, deport them to Guatemala and abandon their kids in a dangerous part of town!! Time for ACTION! OR ruin them by contaminating their poultry products so they go bankrupt!! AND humiliate their families on social media until their families step up and force their horrible parent to get woke!

  19. REMOVE the Electoral College Process – Every VOTE should count in a Presidential Election. This is not a State Issue, it is about Voters Rights and Representation. Boycott NRA who betrayed our country. #45* betrayed our country for money. Republicans and NRA are the new domestic terrorist. Russian Bought. Real Facts, Fake President, Fake Fear, Real Faith

  20. CATCH AND RELEASE WORKED. MIGRANTS WOULD GO THROUGH THE BORDER AND BP WOULD ASSIGN THEM COURT DATES AND 85% OF THEM APPEARED AT THEIR HEARINGS.WHEN RELEASED THEY WENT TO FAMILY OR FRIENDS, THAN TO WORK, PAID TAXES, STAYED OUT OF TROUBLE. NOW WE PAY $1,000 ADAY EACH TO HOLD THEM. DID WE NEED TO SPEND THE MONEY?

  21. Trump goes to el Paso to give "condolences" (sad excuse) to victims and there familys……next day largest mass raid. This guy is real scum at lowest level.

  22. It is just a matter of time before things like this happen. Stop breaking the law! I blame the people that encouraged these people to break into our country and told them they could get away with this. If these people expect the US to ignore our immigration laws then what about the laws put in place to protect our citizens? Maybe they will be ignored as well as long as there is a political gain.

  23. Soon the price of food will go up. Farmers don't have the labor pool they need and now food processing facilities don't have the workers. Supply levels will drop while demand remains high. Prices will go up.

  24. “No matter how noble the objectives of a government if it blurs decency and kindness, cheapens lives and stirs suspicions, it is an evil government” Eric Hoffer

  25. Dirty companies with bad, filthy & unsafe working conditions. Dirty companies afraid of lawsuits. Dirty companies say, “come on in ICE get these people that are complaining”.
    America is a sad place.

  26. How is it legal for ICE to KNOWINGLY leave small children without a guardian of any type, or even notifying CPS??? If a cop were to leave a WHITE person's small child all alone when he arrested a parent, the law suits would burn up the courts!

    This is Child Endangerment! (and many of those kids are US citizens in their own right!)

  27. Has any other president in our history ever caused so much pain to so many people ? This one seems to go after children and hurt them as much as he possibly can . I guess monsters are real after all.

  28. Dont blame the illegal workers blame the companies that are hiring them it's all about the bottom dollar cheap labor if they hire American residents they need to have better wages Plus benefits which affects the bottom line if you arrest the illegal immigrants you must arrest the companies that are hiring

  29. Why not give people the chance to be documented, why not offer them a possibility? It's been more than 30 years since we last offered undocumented immigrants a path to residency/citizenship. They have been waiting and contributing to this country for decades, time is overdue, they deserve to be treated like humans.

  30. Notice they're wearing khakis? The official uniform for hate. DOWN WITH THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE! DOWN WITH THE ORANGE QUEEN! DOWN WITH THE RACIST RONALD CHUMP!

  31. Those are not criminals trump those are working parents trying to feed their families. You said t
    Only the ones who have committed serious crimes??

  32. Those processing plants won't run without those workers.Might go outta business if they can't fill those labour gaps

  33. Awful days after shooting trump does the biggest raid in the latino/Hispanic community…also he goes to El Paso and does a campaign when he visit hospital patients and doesn't apologize for what he leaded omg this president needs to be removed from office

  34. Please stop torturing little children! We cannot have this happening now or ever! They are first innocent children not illegal immigrants!

  35. Thats because the Company that hires them will make a deal to get out of trouble by throwing those workers under the bus
    Then turn around and hire half as many americans that they lost workers for and pile on the work 3x as much

  36. I've heard back in the day that there were lots of lets just say stupid laws.like a ticket for spitting on the sidewalk,if u had your kid in the car and got pulled over and your kid didn't have on shoes(was barefooted)you could be charged with kidnapping.those were pretty stupid just like these raids for people who are here just working providing a life for there children.And im not saying all,but you white pilgrims make up these laws,put up these borders that say were here illegally.Really we've always been here and we should be able to freely roam this continent.but I know what your really afraid of is what if they try to take it back, to many of us huh.

  37. If undocumented immigrants are such monstrous, dangerous raping criminals, then why did ICE find nearly 700 of them at work? There are more law abiding Undocumented Immigrants than there are of natural born Americans in this country. The last thing an Undocumented Immigrant want to do is draw attention to his/herself.

    Even a greater point to this tragedy, is how peaceful and docile these people were. None of the news outlets reported any hostile physical aggression having to be used, no shootings or so much as a verbal disagreement between ICE and the Immigrants — be it someone who is natural born, here on a work Visa or undocumented – not a single episode of violence to report for 680 "raping, murdering, corrosive, toxic" men and women.

    They showed the world, even in the midst of a crisis, what A REAL AMERICAN looks AND acts like: Cool, Calm, Collected, Cooperative and Classy. Bravo!! Bravo People of South American descent, bravo and job well done indeed!!!

  38. Trump him self is doing the same thing in florida who u think is taking care of all his business in florida. Then turn on them like snake on them thats why he wont release his tax return to show how much money he's saving

  39. Ducked. Those children can be put on foster care n group home for a better education and safer tomorrow…

  40. I don't understand how the illegals pay 8- 10,000.00 to the Coyotes, but want pay to become a US. Citizens. As parents, we are responsible for our OWN kids. It is up to us as Parent not to put our kids at Risk. These Employers are the one who are turning these illegals over to the ICE Agents.
    There is no safe place here in America anymore.

  41. Odd how we never see ICE raiding and arresting any of those thousands of illegal and dangerous rapists and murderers that trump has exposed with his rallies. You would think with so many of them that they might find a few now and then. I call BS on Trump.

  42. ok people, follow the logic:

    1) illegal comes to this country knowing he/she could be deported, but takes the risk.
    2) illegal gets job/finds spouse knowing he/she could be deported, but takes the risk
    3) because of years of lax immigration law enforcement, illegal gets comfortable and think they will never be deported and then start to have a family, BUT they also are aware that they could be deported
    4) illegals have 2..3…4 kids knowing he/she could be deported, but takes the risk.
    5) One day, the illegals get deported and then cry how the government is breaking apart families and all the bleeding heart liberals cry and complain.
    The TRUTH is thought that the fault of breaking up families is solely on the illegals who came to this country and started a family KNOWING they could be deported.
    If I have a family and I decide to rob banks to support said family and 1 day, I get caught, can I tell the judge to release me becasue I have a family to support??????

  43. "Terrible things are happening outside. At any time of night and day, poor helpless people are being dragged out of their homes. Families are torn apart; men, women, and children are separated. Children come home from school to find their parents have disappeared." – Anne Frank

  44. Treating children this way is not what a civilized country should do. That also goes for the treatment of adult immigrants. People abroad will start despising the US society. In addition to laughing at your nutty president.

  45. AMERICA THE GREAT!
    Spread the chant:
    “WE OUR BETTER THAN THIS!”
    🤝 “YOU CANNOT DIVIDE US!”
    “WE ARE BETTER THAN THIS!”
    🤝 “YOU CANNOT DIVIDE US!”
    “WE ARE BETTER THAN THIS!”
    🤝 “YOU CANNOT DEVIDE US!”

  46. Great to see you can trust that school principal to do his purpose and protect and care for children any children, and most importantly to see them as children. People is New Zealand and friends around the planet are sicken by this BS

  47. OK SO NOT ALL IMMIGRANTS ARE CRIMINALS LIKE ALL AMERICANS ARE NOT WHITE SUPREMISTS BUT IF THEY KEEP THIS UP THE WORLD WILL DEFINITELY LABEL THEM AS SUCH

  48. These immigrants should have done their research before coming to a country that kills its own people and leaders for profit, a country that kills doesn’t care about separating families.

  49. Don't do the crime if you can't do the time. These were illegal aliens. If you want to blame anyone, blame the ones who broke the law, not those who enforce it. Both employers who knowingly hire them and those who are here illegally need to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

  50. They should make the Jeff Epstein estate pay to help out, and all Trump organizations should be forced to pay restitution to the whole country for his fraud and treason. All of this just to cover up his pedophilic desires which are killing the world.

  51. I dont see MS13 gangster arrested . Please dont tell me they're afraid. Other countries have to do the same against americans, make laws to persecute americans, even better been born american should be a crime!

  52. It’s not that they won’t go through the hoops but the system makes it impossible for you to even be a resident…. unless you have a boat load of money chances are zero but yet again American citizens ripping off the system on welfare…. welfare beneficiaries should be the ones performing public services such as trash cleaning in city of residence e.g.
