  1. Trump excites his base by hurting the most vulnerable. Has anyone read the Bible in the White House????? I guess Steve Miller reads the Torah

  2. DemoKKKrats are literally abducting people in AFRICA giving them $300 in cash and sending them to work at factories all over the midwest.. You might of seen some of the busts lately.. The DemoKKKrats only care about SLAVE LABOR!

  3. My folks were immigrants who came to the States in March of 1980. Neither of them spoke English nor had any "skills" beyond that of labor. They absolutely HAD to depend on public assistance in all its forms from housing to food stamps. Oh, did I conveniently forget to mention that my Dad and our family were simple, peaceful farmers in Laos who had been recruited by the American government (CIA) in 1970 to fight the Communist regimes in that area? Yeah… My Pop was paid an AWESOME $2 a month to engage the Pathet Lao and the Viet Cong in guerrilla skirmishes, with the top priorities being to rescue American pilots when they were shot down, attack the enemy supply lines on the Ho Chi Minh trail, all while having to perform these crucial duties under absolute clandestinity since Laos was neutral territory that both sides had mutually agreed to not have combat engagement. My Dad and others like him were left in the dust to die in the most horrific ways by the ultra vengeful Communists when the US dipped out of Southeast Asia in 1975.
    The government was pretty much like, "well….every man for himself! Hopefully you and your families don't die and can somehow magically make it to the refugee camps in the next country over THEN maybe, JUST MAYBE, if you can make your way to the States, due to your sacrifices, you'll have earned your way to be able to live here…see ya!"
    To his last breath my Dad was STILL a staunch patriot… He was a staunch Republican who would be ashamed to see how the party has changed… Above all else, my dad believed in ALWAYS doing the right thing, the HONORABLE, MORAL AND HUMANE thing…to care about people who aren't just connected to you on a personal, political, or social level…to treat ppl not just the way you'd be if you were in the same shoes, but because we're ALL in the same boat and if it sinks, we all go down… It's the most simple concept yet there are those who want to separate themselves in order to make it easier to condemn those who don't have it as good…

  4. The Traitor Trump Terrorist Organization is now accepting applications for the tremendous opportunity to serve the Commander-in-Thief as head of this great nation's intelligence apparatus. TTTO applicants are not required to have much intellect or knowledge of the job. However, all applicants must be willing to betray their country to protect the vital interests of TTTO's titular titan of tantrums. For expedited consideration, please direct all CV's and resumes directly to the President via Twitter.

  5. If I was an immigrant looking for a country to migrate to today, I certainly WOULD NOT be looking into the USA. Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand would be far better choices. New Immigants should start thinking carefully before they choose the USA. The USA is not immigrant friendly anymore.

  6. Give me not your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breath free. Instead give me your rich greedy monsters who have so much money, they will never pay taxes, because in America the rich do not pay taxes, only the poor and the middle class have to pay taxes.

  7. That's really funny a man who has bankrupted numerous times and4200 lawsuits against him for non payment. A person receiving food stamps has more credibility than trump . trump is a sponge off the system

  8. Watch, “THE FAMILY” – brand new on NetFlix. You’ll be shocked to your socks to see the unveiling of an international, Washington D.C. based fascist Jesus cult.

  9. As a few of them said in 2015 and 2016….Republicans don't want any immigrants into United States.
    None.
    Zip.

    Waiting patiently for the rightwing imbeciles to be triggered about this comment. I'll not have to wait long.

  10. THE BIGGEST ECONOMIC PROBLEM IS THIS COUNTRY IS HIGH HOUSING COSTS IN DEMOCRAT AREAS BECAUSE OF SKYROCKETING PROPERTY TAXES, THAT DEMOCRATS USE TO BUY VOTES WITH WELFARE.

  11. What is the Einstein visa? And how did Melania Trump get one? Was it for the tightest Crack G-string?  Melania Trump obtained US citizenship on a visa reserved for immigrants with "extraordinary ability" and "sustained national and international acclaim", according to a report in the Washington Post.   Nicknamed the "Einstein Visa", the EB-1 is in theory reserved for people who are highly acclaimed in their field – the government cites Pulitzer, Oscar, and Olympic winners as examples – as well as respected academic researchers and multinational executives.
    Mrs Trump began applying for the visa in 2000, when she was Melania Knauss, a Slovenian model working in New York and dating Donald Trump. She was approved in 2001, one of just five people from Slovenia to win the coveted visa that year, according to the Post.
    Becoming a citizen in 2006 gave her the right to sponsor her parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs, who are now in the US and in the process of applying for citizenship. 
    The reports of how Mrs Trump obtained her EB-1 visa will rankle with some, at a time when her husband is railing against immigrants and attempting to scrap the right of new citizens to sponsor family members. And questions have been raised about her suitability for the extraordinary ability category.
    But just how hard is it to get an EB-1, and should she have made the cut?

  12. Cuccinelli is a liar and a thug. That much is no surprise; those are qualifications for any +rump appointment. However, the fact that he said, "People of any income (can) stand on their own two feet," should be seen as an admission that he is intellectually incompetent to hold his position, and he should be forced to step down immediately.

    If what he said were true, no one would need more than one job.

    If what he said were true, Walmart workers wouldn't be dependent on multiple forms of public assistance.

    Unless TheCooch wants to admit that he is lying, in furtherance of racist thuggery, he should be forced to step down immediately, for gross incompetence.

    If he DOES want to admit it, then he should be forced to step down immediately, for lying, in furtherance of racist thuggery.

  13. Just think international students! They cannot support their families while in school, but compensate above and beyond once they enter labor market. It would not be prudent to deny them green cards.

  14. Speaking of scary guy's, Cuccinelli delivers this like he's talking about the time of day. That analysis at the end says this will be decided by language and color … If you're Norwegian, food stamps will be cool. How do the Norwegians feel about being used by Trump as a regular trope? Cuccinelli has forgotten that 80 yrs ago HE would have been nothing but a greaseball WOP to a WASP. Guess he likes it on top.

  15. They can work and pay taxes but can't apply for government assistance? What about unemployment benefits if layed off from jobs.

  16. Why does panda express here in the bay area have so many Russian immigrants working for them now? I have gone to 4 different pandas and at all 4 the people working are Russian or from a eastern European country….and it wasn't like that until 2016….what happened?

  17. How many Americans are descended from people who came here unable to read and/or speak English? Not just Mexicans, but Chinese, Germans, Hungarians, etc.? Let's think about the Irish alone for a moment: There were a lot of Irish immigrants who couldn't read when they got here, who had no money or barely any money when they arrived, but they still made productive lives for themselves, in spite of treated as though they were less than animals in their day. There were newspaper cartoons that promoted horrific stereotypes of the Irish, and now we have Irish Day picnics and parades and whatnot. And now we're supposed to be scared of Mexicans, even though there are also large numbers of Europeans coming here legally and then overstaying their visas. I wonder why we're not seeing them get rounded up? 🤔

  18. Why would we give any public funds to foreigners? End all foreign aid and welfare to any immigrants (legal or illegal). How long has this craziness been going on?

  19. What's the problem? Trump says all the time to anyone who will listen that the American economy is the best in American history!! So then, who cares if they took welfare, America's doing great!!

  20. Wtf trump always hired illegals to wash his toilets clean his fn buildings .what a muther Fu POS lying double standard now😡😡😡😡

  21. trump 's new immigration policy. Must be white, very white. Males must run brothel like grandpa trump. Females must be at least a 9, and sign NDA with donal, ooops, John barron

  22. Most welfare states are red. Republicans that get elected cut taxes so Republicans that make millions of dollars don't have to pay anything. We are being leeched upon by both ends of the Republican spectrum. Address that and leave the struggling laborers alone.

  23. And here we go with the non sense of all immigrants get all things for free, first and foremost, not all legal and non legal people get anything for free, second, if the US wants to stop all immigrants from coming, please just say that openly and with out masking that with non factual information, and third, welcome to the way the third world countries start their way to be another one of many countries that hates all none white people, we love democracy but we hate racism, if America wants to close borders, please do so and make sure is because people wants it, and stop complaining if you're call racist for marginalizing others that doesn't look like you, if you want to become like a dictator country, please do so and stop making people believe you care about others, unless you want change, be a real democracy, vote for what you believe in and we will call it for what people stands for

  24. Lets begin with cutting off organizations who contract outside of everifi all government 💰 like trump inc. individuals are losing their positions

  25. Fifty Shades of Corporate Gray; "Neal to your Corporate Masters submissive democrats and republican politicians"

  26. The old Clemson agricultural hub on Southern Crest here in Loris is being ran by white supremacist Christians that police the neighborhood with satellites and EMF. They break Gods commandments, thou shalt not trespass. BEWARE! These home grown domestic terrorists are committing these acts in the name of God.

  27. This just in: millions of Immigrant families found alive and well, and living comfortably in America, together, because they immigrated leagally )

  28. Wow. They said all these things about my African American brothers 40 years ago down here in the south. New day new bogeyman same xenophobic racist creeps. Cuccinelli….. Where have I heard that name? Wasn’t he trumps lawyer defending him from Mueller a few months ago??

  29. Finally a real plan to keep the parasites away. If you want to live here, come legally and contribute to society. Thank you President Trump!

  30. After long and hard deliberation on the problem I've realized, almost with a blinding light, that tRump has no capacity for vision of the future, none at all. All his focus is on this moment only and with his greed to accumulate huge wealth and to be a corruption of the DEMOCRACY of America as 'the King' with total devotion from all the subjects. TRULY A BIZARRE MAN, although he is barely human in my opinion.

  31. DISRESPECTING THE FLAG MR PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP THE FLAG SHOULD NEVER BE USE AS WEARING APPAREL PLEASE STOP MAKING LOVE TO THE UNITED STATES FLAG ON TELEVISION GET A ROOM LAW BREAKER

  32. Research reviewed by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office indicates that between 50 percent and 75 percent of unauthorized immigrants pay federal, state, and local taxes. Illegal immigrants are estimated to pay in about $7 billion per year into Social Security.

  33. Nice Work President Trump. You're the BEST!!!!!! The racists mexicans just want to steal this country and They want to steal what rightfully belongs to the Anglo Saxons.

  34. I think we should bomb mexico. Then their government and thieving racist mexican citizens would get the Message.

  35. So if Millania is here in America "legally" and has occasional modeling gig, she would not qualify to be American citizen.

  36. Jesus! Enough is enough. Leave the Hispanic people alone dammit! There are way more important things in this country to do than make the lives of poor Mexican-American's even worse simply because this administration hates Mexicans,

  37. If these sort of things do go through, and stick, someone is going to have to either remove that plaque you Americans have on your Statue of Liberty, or make some SERIOUS adjustments to what it says.

  38. Nothing new here, all immig know this , one can be hard working, not rich and not be on welfare, who aims in life to be in welfare anyways? Exploiters

  39. 'We certainly expect people of any income to stand on their own two feet'. Seriously?! Is that why the top 1 percent is having tax breaks and corporate bailouts shoveled at them?

  40. To bad…we can't climb into our time machine…and eject his parents…for the same reason he's doing this…How soon we forget !!! Well…I guess if Melania was married to this "clown" they wouldn't have got in either… If we deport anyone…let's start at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave…oh…that's right…she doesn't live there !!!

  41. WOW! Trump really hates immigrants especially brown immigrants. Doesn't stop him from marrying two immigrants and bringing one of them's parents here to live in America though. VOTE TRUMP OUT IN 2020, THEN LOCK HIM UP FOR THE REST OF HIS MISERABLE LIFE!

  42. IN 2006 CA Gov Schwarzenegger kicked ALL illegals off welfare.

    They were not legal therefore they could not legally contract welfare services.

    Their American children are under the age of 18yr therefore they could not legally contract welfare services. This is one of the reasons they moved to red states.

    Schwarzenegger told red state governors to do this. Red states need the cheap illegal workers as seen in the Mississippi raids
