This is shameful! If this is what makes America great again, I am, for the first time in my life, ashamed to be an American.

Ok, then why are the parents of these children not providing them with the necessities of life? Many of these travelers certainly seem to be equipped with smartphones. Can you hear me now?

On the escaping violence question, if violent gangs are so bad, why do so many in these countries raise their children to become gang members? It seems to be a homegrown problem for these countries made entirely by choice.

Uh maybe because most of them are fleeing deplorable and dangerous conditions.

Lord Jesus. Have mercy - please educate yourself ! Gang membership is not like joining the country club! They they take a young boy, beat him up, n threaten that if he doesnt come with them, they will kill his parents and and make his little 8 yr old sister the prostitute if the entire gang ! Where on earth do you hide not to know these things are every day threats in the real world!! Dang !

I suffered major second-hand embarrassment watching this. It’s shameful, absolutely shameful.

Also, this thread emphasizes how Trump fans will say anything—anything—to defend the incompetence of Trump and his administration.
