  • Trump is not your average piece of sh t,he's a ripe foul smelling piece of sh t that doesnt value human beings.Racist and unhinged,he cant win,he will fall short of his wicked goals.When you set traps for others you unintentionally snare yourself.

  • Elisabeth Arana says:

    Long term strategy. Cutting off the heads of Latinos & Africans whom never will become supporters of the tyrannical power and receiving with open arms to the wealthy Russians needed for USA to become a dictatorial country. That's what really means make America great again. That's the real purpose. Pay attention!

  • TheBlazersfan22 says:

    well. I guess we should start deporting the trump supporters first cause they're mostly on welfare and living in trailer parks in Mississippi and Alabama.

  • Richard Johnson says:

    So to make America great we must destroy what it is that makes America? If you can't get home, job, money or food what is left is to become a homeless criminal. Hunger has no other feelings or needs but one. So now we make more criminals. They will take notice once someone starts deporting all the white people that are in America illegally.

  • Trump administration going to use taxe's money to build houses and financial assistance for immigrants (as long they are from Eastern Europe, same immigration scheme used by Australia after ww2, and all that paid by the taxe's payers money.)

  • I'm simply tired of the daily assault on decency by Trump. When will enough be enough, for those who have him some of the votes that put him in office. Any rational human being that can think critically should recognise the Russains gave him the lift over the electoral college, it should be clear he isn't up to the job in any way, morally, skill sets, intelligence, bravery, commitment, love of others and country, for ALL THE CITIZENS.

    Organise, March, vote, register others, donate, show up and speak out. It's your country, demand the return to our common values and demand your voice is heard. CONTACT YOUR CONGRESSMAN AND SENATORS, BURN THEIR PHONES OFF THE HOOK.

  • How many raids, arrests, imprisonment, separation of children and placing them in cages has ICE made on white immigrants from Europe?  They are pouring in from Canada and they aren't building a wall there; WHY?  Little donnie wa, wa doesn't talk about it and we don't hear anything about that from all the various news agencies; Why?

  • How is it nothing can be done about this man. The way things are seems to me Americans are living under a dictatorship already. No one seems to be able to stop the madness of what this man is doing. All these news reports day after day things worse and worse.

  • Joe for a conservative your family used a lot of socialist benefits. So if the socialist benefits weren't there, ur family and you wouldn't be where you are now. Says a lot about your beliefs systems.
    Maybe you should be a Democrat.
    I think Joes Dunning Kruger effect is showing.

  • Marcella Logwood says:

    So sad republicans are changing rules that was put in place by our forefathers for the security of our country. Just because somethings is President, shouldn’t mean rules and regulation should be change for one person fulfillment. I really hope since Republicans are giving the dunce a rope, that somehow 45 trips get stuck and go through, what happen to thousands of Black ppl that didn’t ask to be here, hang himself. Just awful he would do this to us.

  • careaboutmychildren craig says:

    ultimate plan is to crush wages for our college grads and benefit billionaires. bring in drs IT engineers and smash middle class wages of our kids who have gone through college. He will use the free college system of other countries and eliminate the last of our middle class. And his base will blindly follow.

  • First, they came for the Mexicans, and I did not speak out—

    Because I watched Fox News.

    Then they came for the Lower class, and I did not speak out—

    Because I had a great paying job.

    Then they came for the media, and I did not speak out—

    Because I didn't like the left anyway.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

  • Demonize Asylum Seekers (check), Demonize Undocumented workers (check), Demonize legal immigrants (checks), Demonize American Born citizens who LOOK like immigrants (pending…)

  • People of America listen… This guy has gone TOO FAR. Time to set the country back on track. IT IS TIME. LISTEN: Those that are here, LEGALLY IMMIGRANTS that can VOTE, please get out as ONe PERSON and VOTE MASSIVELY to save your fellow immigrants that "STOOD IN LINE" and that are following in your footsteps and help deliver AMERICA from what we have in office. VOTE AND LET'S KICK DON DONALD TRUMP OUT. Enough is ENOUGH. He has crossed the line. … Like they say, he should start with his own wife. He wants to destroy families, DONT LET THAT HAPPEN.. VOTE. VOTE.. VOTE

  • The long term permanent residents (green card holders) thaat I have met only apply for government assistance for their children. These children are US citizens. So does Trump want to throw the parents out and leave the children without parents?

  • We watch as one by one this administration flicks and chips away our democracy. When Trump's base realizes he will turn on them that is when the Republican Party will be put into the history books. I wonder sometimes if this was his plan all along. Take out the Republican Party and just have the party of Trump.

  • These days, if you're not already rich then you are not welcome. This will eventually include poor Americans who were born here.

  • Does not needing government assistance include Republican tax cuts to show any profits on your 5 star Mario Batalli book cooking like most Trump businesses? Again just next level hipocracy.

  • i want to see those rich buggers (white) that Donnie dementia allows in
    go pick those crops that are rotting in 'murikas fields, and orchards
    bettcha they will be demanding a trifle more than starvation wages
    oh wait
    all the Donnie dementia minions will be out there doing the back breaking work
    …good for you guys
    take one for the team

  • Antony Bellingham says:

    Why would anybody from, Norway for example, want to leave a good life to live in the shithole called The United States.

  • Inappropriate Mushroom says:

    They will never get an impeachment, Pelosi knows this, it will only back fire and house seats will be lost.

    First President to be impeached for a nothing Burger it's also retribution for beating Hillary,

  • Inappropriate Mushroom says:

    Mr. Trump gave up a Billionaire life style , spent his own money to get elected ! is doinating his salary to charity ,, to try and preserve this great country from being taken over by a bunch of Washington Bereaucrats ,,,better know as the Swamp ,,, who are trying to turn America into a socialist country with the result America turning into Venezuela or Argentina . Thank You Mr. Trump !!!!!!!!

  • Inappropriate Mushroom says:

    Americans will vote for Trump is bigger this time around , Democratic party is beyond repair at this point

  • Blinkin Winkin And Nod says:

    This is not about migrants MSNBC wants us to believe this, this is about coming to America and not sitting on Welfare paid for by the Tax Payers the only people that get up and go to work every day like we’re supposed to. You must understand the countries they’re coming from do not have welfare benefits and free housing and free medical.

  • Frank ten Horn says:

    Forget about immigrants from Europe! Specially from the Northern 'socialist' countries.
    For us the American 'dream', looks more like a nightmare.

  • Immigration Laws and the idea of Legal vs Illegal has always been a RACIST ideology.

    The Chinese and other Asians were labeled as invaders. They were considered threatening and degenerate rapists and criminals pre-1940. They were the "Brown Horde" and the "Yellow Peril". "The Chinese Must GO" was a rally cry for the Workingmen's Party.

    They made the Page Act, Angell Treaty of 1880 and the Chinese Exclusion Act to keep Asians out.

    Then came the racist opus de resistance.

    The Immigration Act of 1924, was FUELED by racism. Albert Johnson, a racist who lead congress and was Chair of the committee on Immigration and Naturalization, He hired an EXPERT EUGENICS AGENT, Harry Laughlin, who helped craft the Act. They used the Act to retain the American RACIAL makeup of the country from the 1890 – 35 years prior to the Act. There was NO secret that the Act was to PRESERVE the racial composition of the country.

    Senator Ellison DuRant Smith, stated: "we have sufficient stock in America now for us to shut the door" "we now have sufficient population in our country for us to shut the door and to breed up a pure, unadulterated American citizenship. " " I would like for the Members of the Senate to read that book just recently published by Madison Grant, The Passing of a Great Race. Thank God we have in America perhaps the largest percentage of any country in the world of the pure, unadulterated Anglo-Saxon stock; certainly the greatest of any nation in the Nordic breed. It is for the preservation of that splendid stock that has characterized us that I would make this not an asylum for the oppressed of all countries, but a country to assimilate and perfect that splendid type of manhood that has made America the foremost Nation in her progress and in her power, and yet the youngest of all the nations."

  • The thing people dont seem to get is Trumps changes to immigration policy are designed to help corporate America and hurt workers who want good jobs. Cutting back on low or unskilled immigrants who take low paying jobs Americans dont want and increasing immigrants who will take the higher pay jobs away from Americans.

  • Thank you, Joe, for admitting that your parent(s) used government assistance. I wonder how many other Republicans/former Republicans could do that.

  • Trump administration is ruthless! Why do you hate legal immigrants so much when they do the jobs which white americans can’t do! United states is a country of immigrants come on …you yourselves are immigrants too! This legal immigrants work too in this country dont they deserve to use one of these public benefits when sometimes some of them experience hard times and they are eligible to use some of this benefits .

  • The arrogance of this administration: it's uncanny! Snakes. They are killing the American Citizens as well with these kind of policies. WTH!

    The best Parody News Show on TV
    Joe Scarborough is the funniest comedian in recent memory. His deadpan delivery of absurd content has us in stitches. A few people even think it's serious. Lol

  • Look all those kids left behind are gonna be adopted and who ever adopted them are going to get a Check for each Child, now the illegal people couldn't get assistance no way,so they go do jobs like picking Watermelon's,Veggies,but the first thing they holl'a (White folks)they stealing our jobs,Mississippi people knew about them jobs but they weren't gonna do it.

  • So, just where do you deport the Americans who do not meet the same criteria? They pay taxes as you and I do. They pay into the system. We are talking about LEGAL immigrants.

  • Richard Murray says:

    How can you prove you won't need these things in the future? How can you prove the future? Those programs are intended to be a safety net IN CASE OF NEED ARISING FROM CIRCUMSTANCES. If you have a recession, do you let certain categories of people starve?

  • Is this going to include the Cuban community? They have had special asylum with federal benefits for decades….hmm.

  • Means test? Anyone care to take a guess on the percentage of Trump supporter's that survive on ~79 government sponsored "socialistic" programs such as SS, SSD, military benefits, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, rent and health care insurance subsides, unemployment compensation, etc.? Why? The government spends ~851 billion a year on these programs. That's a lot of money that could be going to Trump's friends in the GOP. Note to Trump supporters: If Trump is reelected, you best prepare for deep cuts in these "socialistic" programs. Until then, he needs your vote-again!

  • 101perspective says:

    The crazy part is that this policy goes against one of the things Republican's fear the most. One of their biggest complaints is that immigrants are taking their jobs. Well, someone picking fruit and possibly getting financial assistance because the job pays so little isn't going to be taking your job. However, if you only let in people that can show they are well qualified to get good paying jobs… well, those folks will definitely be in the same job market fighting for your job. And they will be willing to do it at reduced wages also since they will be required to get said job in order to stay in the country. All they will be required to do is stay above the poverty line. So, instead of getting maybe $40,000 a year they would gladly accept $30,000. Are you willing to accept a $10k cut in wages?

  • Legal immigrants already have to sign a form, stating that they will not depend upon the US government for financial assistance.

  • Native American says:

    An illegal alien, repeatedly freed into the United States by federal immigration officials, has been convicted of murdering 20-year-old Jared Vargas in San Antonio, Texas, last year.

    A jury convicted 20-year-old Ernesto Esquivel-Garcia, an illegal alien from Mexico, of brutally murdering Vargas in June 2018 and then leaving his body in an apartment complex before setting it on fire.

  • I'm an American taxpayer and I love having my tax dollars go to these immigrants and their social support.

  • Île-de- France says:

    Donald Trump has repeatedly bashed undocumented immigrants are “rapists” and criminals. A new analysis debunks this claim.

    The study was conducted by The Marshall Project using 2007-2016 data from the FBI and the Pew Research Center. The journalism nonprofit, which focuses on the criminal justice system, compared local crime rates and Pew’s estimates of undocumented populations in metro areas.

    The Marshall Project, in a collaboration with the Times, wrote: 

    A large majority of the areas recorded decreases in both violent and property crime between 2007 and 2016, consistent with a quarter-century decline in crime across the United States. The analysis found that crime went down at similar rates regardless of whether the undocumented population rose or fell.

  • You know the farm bail outs… that’s socialism.

    Immigrants built this county. Immigrants have pay more of their fair share in taxes, yet Jeff bezels paid zero in federal taxes. Heck, I paid $700 in federal taxes extra to the IRS when I did my taxes and I barley make $26000 a year

    He has never been against illegal immigrants. He was against diversity

  • Leave it to the well-off to make the less fortunate suffer every humiliation and literary torture them. For reasons hard to fathom , that is the current state of affairs.

  • Mongz Motlhabi says:

    Joe cites corporate welfare but will never acknowledge that Bernie shone a light on that during one of his most important speeches earlier this year. And they wonder why Bernie says he's bias against him….

  • I am tired of hearing about how Republicans are the "party of Lincoln" and how they were champions of immigration. They are now the party of xenophobic racists. Anything good they may have ever done is long past.

  • KesselRunner606 says:

    The facts are more white, native born Americans are on welfare and foodstamps than Legal immigrants.

    For all you MAGA that cry they're only after illegal immigrants, you are now officially in Bullsh# territory.

  • Western rider 100 says:

    Slippery slope – seeking asylum! Our country has better government benefits than Central or South American countries. They are here for handouts. Asylum seekers and migrants do not deserve any / or absolute minimum government benefits. First, they should assimilate – ] adopt our customs, learn our language [ English ] and coply with our laws.

  • Honestly this guy is ruening the country. Building walls, and now this c'mon. If there are no poor people coming into this country that are coming here for opportunities many start in factories. But if People looking for work stop coming into this country legally who is going to work those factories? Those factories might end up moving to other countries and have slave kids working those factory jobs. What's going to happen to "made in America" products?. And I honestly think that these factories could end up changing to other countries and I don't want to say this because it's horrible but they might end up doing child slave labor. Honestly idk anymore,
