America’s dysfunctional immigration court system forces many children to appear in court alone. That’s as ridiculous in real life as it would be on a courtroom television show.

And now there are thousands more criminal and immigration cases thrown onto this dumpster fire.
Google or Facebook RAICES, a not for profit that gives legal aid to asylum seekers. They have raised over 15 million and are attempting to provide bail and legal support to the parents of the 2,500 parents who have recently been separated from their children by Trump's monstrous Zero Tolerance Policy.
This is my friend, Sara Oliveira's solution to immigration:
"Here’s my immigration solution.
Anybody without a criminal record and a 5 year plan can come into the country legally. They would be given a a social security number for work authorization only. They would be put on a 7 year benefit hold meaning that after 7 years of paying taxes in the United States, they would be eligible for federal benefits. Those who refuse to pay taxes would be considered illegal and then be at risk for deportation.
Basically the United States would receive free taxes from millions of people. We would not be spending millions on deportations. The wall would be obsolete (even more than it already is) because crossing a border illegally would become unnecessary.
See, that’s called a solution. Mass incarceration and deportation is called a waste of money."
And mind you, she's not just talking out her a** without any research or knowledge on what she's saying, she's majoring in politics because she wants to help make a difference for immigrants all over the country.
Johhny, I just want to thank you so much. I used to be so stupid. I used actually think about stuff (I know, totally gay). Thanks to you I can just sit back and let you forcefeed me your totally objective facts that looks at both sides. It feels great to have my views told to me through bad comedy. lol drumpffftt xd
Why are we not talking about the children who get taken away from legalized Americans who break the law? The same thing happens at the Mexican border as it does when adults that have children in the US lose their rights to have their children as well when they break the law. Breaking the law is breaking the law no matter who you are US citizen or not!
And now Jeff Sessions is trying to separate children without even the need for an immigration court by basically kidnapping children to deter mothers from the US and Sessions using the Bible to justify it. Because conservatives always go that, they could dip their dicks in pudding and come up with a Bible verse
Why are all the illegal immigrants going to get killed if they go back? Who is going to kill them and why? Also, I REALLY don't think the US government should pay for lawyers who are representing citizens of other countries and have KNOWINGLY broken the law. If they did, could you imagine the decades long backlog of cases? Children should be represented by their PARENTS.
You complete idiot Oliver. Take a lesson in basic law. Those who have committed a transgression against the state and illegally invaded it have no right to any privilege or benefit including legal defense.
Liberals these days don't understand that illegal immigration is... illegal. There's nothing that should be controversial about it, hence "illegal." We are a nation of freedom, but we are still a nation of laws.
Of course not! Let me explain: half of my family are immigrants, being on my dad's side. They came to the U.S.A from Latin America and their stories always remind me of how hard it was to live here. They were never illegal immigrants nor did they ever received assistance directly from the government. When my dad first met my mom, they became the most successful people being on the same level already. On behalf of me, it's not fair that there are people out there that think it's ok to welcome yourself into this country and say that you're here to stay WHEN there are people that truly fought their own hardships and actually worked their way into the country lawfully. That's simply not fair and I know that most illegals had their own hardships from home (even though everyone knows that you can't simply escape their own problems anyway), but look: asylums are meant for persecution protection temporarily, and that's reasonable on a small scale of things and yet the real problem here is that the U.S. fails to recognize that part of the illegal immigration which is something worth supporting. That's really the only flaw here because in most cases, that's what it comes down to really. Other than that, illegals shouldn't be welcomed in our country just because it's on anyone's accord of inspiration.
Thank you John. Humanitarian values must be defended... you rock - with a laugh no less. We NYC musicians made this video to share our view as well. NO HUMAN IS ILLEGAL. KEEP IT UP JOHN!! -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnc9_kxyguk
Republicans need to realize that MS-13 was created in US prions and then allowed to grow to its cancerous size after all those weaponized criminals were deported to countries with little to no internal security.
More than 700 children have been separated from their parents since October, more than 100 of them below the age of four, the New York Times reports. Another report found that the Department of Health and Human services lost track of more than 1,500 children after placing them with U.S. sponsors.
13:30 now after that man's message this pigsty of a law brings me to Transformers the Movie with the part of the 2 robots who escaped Unicron's onslaught only to be imprisoned on another planet and like this i myself say and shout: "SPARE ME THIS MOCKERY OF JUSTICE!!" and then to have him killed later. This is basically a rerunning scenario from that movie behind all stupidity in this sad excuse of a court, and i really wish that Hotrod would come out of the blue and yell "I have nothing but contempt for this court!" it's deplorable
BTW i don't know the names those 2 robots that were fed to the sharkticons
I weep for America if a lawyer has to not only point out, but provide evidence for the fact that a 4 year old cannot represent itself in court. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK, AMERICA!?!
This is just beyond any .. Just.. What the hell. IT'S A 4 YEAR OLD. You were always a bit of an odd people, but this shit is just off the rails hanging upsidedown from an overpass while eating your own faeces level crazy.
You know, I love how a lot of people make fun of Jeff Dunham, but I have yet to meet someone in person that doesn't enjoy his humor.
Especially in this day and age, where being PC can frankly stick it.
This is really terrifying! How could anyone with a little common sense even consider a person lying about such motives of fleeing to the US?! If I get deported, I will get killed. Is this so hard to believe, even if the person comes from a country with consistent drug war and violence like mexico?? Who would lie about this? Maybe like 1% of the people, but those judges think it's like 99%... how can they ever be happy again, knowing that they've put hundreds to death? I don't get it. Are there even consequences if a judge were to let (almost) all the people stay in America? Don't even get me started on how stupid it is to let 3 year old children who don't even speak English defend themselves in court..
Let’s not even mention that most of these people can’t speak fluent English. Even if they were adults that could inform themselves good luck finding it in a decent translation.
This is so sad to see and that these people have to go through this and be treated as criminals when they’re just trying to be safe.
This "Elena" woman did not even first try to move to another town to escape the supposedly dangerous gang member, yet she decided to move to America! The judge's decision to decline her application was totally reasonable! If all people like that were granted residence under such conditions, it would be granted to everyone, including gang members themselves!
Cartoons are becoming less outlandish than reality. I guess the main point is that they never passed reality, though.
Anyway, here is that real people being impacted by the current political issues America has, the next time someone tries to claim there are none. Wow.
With everything that has recently happened with the recent Palestinian protest I do believe an episode on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict may be in order, I will post this on every video till I get a response or the requested video ;)
start deporting them faster!!! the backlog will clear up in no time!
"they are going to kill us" is just an excuse.
who are they?
where are they??
go to a different village or city.
you dont have to go home, just dont stay here.
