Separating Immigrant Families With Lee Gelernt | Why Is This Happening – Ep 6 | MSNBC



The Trump administration is forcibly separating immigrant children from their parents, something they are hoping will deter immigrants from entering the country. It’s sparked widespread outrage, protests and lawsuits, with the White House now attempting to distance itself from its own policy. How did we get here? Lee Gelernt has worked on immigrants right’s issues with the ACLU since 1992 and is now the lead lawyer suing the Trump administration to stop taking kids away from their parents. In this episode, Gelernt explains how immigration and national security became so conflated, how it connects to 9/11, and describes the trauma these families are going through.» Subscribe to MSNBC: http://on.msnbc.com/SubscribeTomsnbc

Hearing you guys talk about this issue brings tears to my eyes. My heart aches at the insensitivity of the Trump Administration –this is reason enough why he should be impeached –removed from office. I pray that we can solve this humanitarian catastrophe –we are much better than this. Thank you guys for your good hard work. Thank you.

we all know this is Stephen Miller. The man is a soulless monster. This entire administration is disgusting and I can't wait for all of them to rot in jail.

Little children and babies who have been forcibly pulled from the arms of their mothers or caregivers, then sent to big cities like Chicago and Detroit, where they will die of exhaustion or pneumonia or typhus. This was Trump’s “idea”

'IMMIGRATION FOR DUMMIES' — by Activated Head of Fatherland Security, Kevin K. McAleenan "So…What I did was I worked really hard with Trump administration to make draconian changes to immigration policies that creates bottlenecks, backlogs, and a HUGE increase in detention rates. So…We did this despite knowing that our lack of capabilities could only lead to greatly overcrowded facilities (concentration camps, if you prefer); poor conditions; human rights abuses against children, refugees, and migrants of color; lasting traumatic damage done to the children; vastly increased costs to the American taxpayer; the demoralization, desensitization, destabilization, depletion and destruction of our vital… Read more »

But if this was the. Trumps & Republican & Other the wicked people children they would want mercy . .why can't they understand that there's a universal law. Blood sacrifice little children and stealing them from their parents it just was never God's plan human race. These are the same who I always want to put people in slavery because they think they are better in above the law. This evil curse will be reversed very soon. We going to pray and watch the salvation of the Lord

What of those who were with cousins or grandparents and were treated as unaccompanied. That was bad, but those children were transferred to other facilities with no record of where or when they entered. the same for those where the parents were immediately deported. No record where the parents entered only where they were deported from.

This whole immigration debate is a farce. I don't aspire to live in 3rd world country conditions. How can any nation take in half the population of the countries these people are fleeing and believe these new comers will make their host country great. If they don't wanna learn English when they arrive, it means "We are coming to take back the land that the European colonizers had stolen from our ancestors". It seems quite clear to me what's going on at our southern border. I'm just saying.
