Un-fucking-acceptable. Trump is a criminal who deserves to be locked up for life, whatever is left of it.

Welp, America's just half a step from death camps now. Geneva-spitting baby detainment is about as cruel as you can get without getting violent.

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?

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.

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.

In a country where someone can successfully sue millions of compensation from a big corporation over a spillt hot coffee, how much damage should an illegaly seperated family, which caused so much trauma to the child, be awarded? The standing of the US has become rock-bottom.

"The greatest country in the world" until they heard about Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, Australia, Canada, Netherlands, Austria, etc., etc., etc.

Kids here are forced into family separation. It's normal in our society. Look up divorced. Look up abandoned children. Worry about your front yard before slinging mud about stuff in your neighbors yard.

The reality is, is that life is being cruel and titty babies like the man in this show never experienced it. Quite whining about not your life and mind your business. They will survive just like me.

Bunch of cry babies.

Coming from an American...this is a disgrace. We don't deserve to be called the greatest country in the world. We're not. No nation that forcefully traumatizes children is eligible for that title. And I hate it. Because the thing is....there are so many good people in this country who accept people no matter their race, sexuality, gender identity, or birthplace. There are so many amazing people who work to build a better future for this country...and the administration we get ends up being...THIS.

I'm an optimist at heart. I can't believe that this is it. Things are going to change. But the thing is...we have to MAKE them change. Because until then...THIS is what America stands for
