100 thoughts on “Migrant Children Describe Sex Assault, Retaliation By Border Agents | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC

  1. AOC and the Dems are encouraging CHILD ABUSE by promoting the parents to drag their own children into this dangerous journey. When a parent abuses their children, the Child Protective Services will knock on their doors and pull the children away from the parents. This is the same as CBP have to pull the children away from the parents because the parents abused them. Instead of stopping the parents, AOC and the Dems are encouraging them to abuse the children. AOC's crocodile tears and her sentiment laws are for her votes and publicity.
    The more AOC and her pirates fight for these illegals by encouraging them to come to the border, the deeper they commit the killing of the children and that is a human crime and it should be condemned by the UN.

  2. Sounds like the conditions on ships during trans-atlantic crossings…… In the SLAVE trade! Brown is the new black. The continued permission of acts of hate and abuse, committed by our (government), by a free (sic.) electorate, is a growing stain on history. The U.S.A. has become so large that protest is inconsequential because of the sheer size of our population, the whitewash of the 24hr. news cycle, and the immense size of our continent. In European countries enough of a like minded portion of the people can assemble to make a statement.
    Remember the pink hats all those ladies knitted? Maybe they should be brown this time, and minus the anatomical association that excluded men and the timid, and~or, socially conservative, from participation. 'Suffer the children' and 'Let the children suffer' do NOT mean the same thing in the eyes of God. Or the eyes of the world!
    -Ashamed

  3. Have you men no honour?!
    What more do you need to stand for chivalry?
    For all the sacrifice, you choose failure?!

  4. This is crazy with good leadership they are not so comfortable and quick to do all this bullsh*t smh simply Deplorables!!!

  5. Incarcerate rich child molesters destroying innocence, not asylum seekers seeking a future for their children.

  6. Trump is Hitler doing these terrible things to the Latin immigrants, nobody does not do anything. This is terrible

  7. Will Rachel round up her family and unlawfully cross a sovereign nations border?Naw, she won’t. If she’s imprisoned is it’s trumps fault? Naw it’s not.
    Democrats are unbelievably confused.
    It’s an invasion. Duhhhhhhhhhh

  8. This was so depressing, I had to stop it. Ok 1399 other commenters please please please become courageously undoubting in your political activity. We must – It is on us to stop this. It is on all of us !!! Otherwise we will be the blind masses who did nothing.

  9. This is SICK! Should put the TRUMP children through that and see if they'd keep quiet about this appalling treatment of the children. Melania is a disappointment. She SHOULD be going to see the kids being held in these detention centres. DO THE RIGHT THING!

  10. LMAO MY GOD this girl/boy is so desperate for ratings that she keeps yapping about how exclusive the news is lmap Flame

  11. How about Trump, his family, the Trump supporters and the entire Republican party live in those filthy conditions and being treated like these children. Bet they will see the light quick. Shame on America.

  12. INHUMANE, and the GOP is insulted that these places are called Concentration Camps. And the Evangelists and the Trump followers called this detention places Summer Camps? Nazis tactics, heartless, Godless, EVIL.

  13. Are we surprised? No. I am again reminded of the pre-adolescent girls who were taken away in the night when this first started. Some reporters followed the car, and I wonder what happened to the girls.

  14. BREAKING NEWS : 4TH CIRCUIT FEDERAL APPEALS COURT RULES FOR TRUMP IN EMOLUMENTS CASE! THIS IS YET ANOTHER VICTORY FOR OUR GREAT POTUS DONALD J TRUMP! MAGA 2020!

  15. Where do you people want the border patrol to put these trouble makers in hotels. Send them back to their president let him take care of them

  16. proving it gonna be hard due what happened aka AOC not signing a spending bill that would give funding for boarders to get more supplies such as beds. It also the timing doesn’t help,after she been called by Holocaust survivor out on her concentration camp comment and the fact people are bit ticked off after Steele confession, so most people will think the report has been forged.

  17. The whole world is being roped into Trump's delusional fantasy world. This is Nazziism. Every one knows this horrendous treatment is happening and no one in all of America seems to have the ability to stop it. The whole world looks on and does nothing. Everyone condemned Nazi Germany, said that could never happen here. I say just watch, it is happening! And – no one is doing anything. Trump could get voted in again. Then what?? Democrats must impeach.

  18. I'm curious if you or anyone at msnbc has reached out to the White House to find out if they have been made aware of these situations especially with the teenage girl and ask why the clinician is not reporting or investigating , there is protocol that they in Yuma are supposed to handle but aren't doing so how do we know even that the reports are actually forwarded? I'm not a Republican or a Democrat but I think these are logical questions that you should be asking. Assuming knowledge without asking pertinent questions is not being completely informative to your audience. As for overcrowding I would ask those questions as well , I can saying living in the country on well water if it's not potable it has to be treated with chlorine a possibility the same thing in the Yuma desert and I would question the water source

  19. Thanks
    Love your show you are so awesome
    All this Kids. One of this days will be Americans future
    You never know what god will bless

  20. Fake news. Our border agents are not assaulting anyone.
    No evidence of anything.
    These illegal aliens are free to leave. We didn't bring them here and we don't want them.
    Turn around and you're free. Go home.
    Any harm coming to any illegal alien child or adult is not our fault. Blame the parents.

  21. What they dont know is that every square inch of facility is covered in cameras. STOP LYING MADCOW DISEASE.

  22. The treatment of these children is absolutely inexcusable and alarming. Convicted people serving time get better treatment than this. People need to be held accountable for this and the children need to be placed with family or at least in foster care where they can get the care they need.

  23. Listen to Giraffe, your idol and coward lier Obama was the first administration to separate families from children and to put them in cages inhumane conditions. His administration D.H.S Director has repeatedly confirmed that on news network.

  24. Why did 129 Democrats vote against funding to help these children via staffing, beds, food and space? Why did. @AOC promote a boycott against Wayfair because they were supplying beds to these children? Why did DEMOCRATS claim there was no crisis? SHAME ON YOU

  25. Rumor has it that Rachel wears black to mourn the loss of her 3rd favorite lesbian and favorite presidential candidate. .. HRC.

  26. Do you think trump, who is accused of raping a young girl, will care at all if a young girl is groped by his border patrol gestapo?

  27. Please help plan a Protest March against trump and his supporters.
    Please remember silence is consent!
    If we do nothing we are tacitly agreeing with his sexual assaults on women; his racism; his allowing children to be ripped from their parents arms and imprisoned, violated and abused in multiple ways. Please help plan, or March, or draw posters, Anything you do is better than doing nothing.

  28. This is far worse than internment camps ever were in WWII. Many of these people are legally seeking asylum, not illegally trying to cross the border. This is disgusting for border patrol and HHS to completely dismiss from children and not investigated. I can’t believe they aren’t investigating sexual assault! I myself have been assaulted and for her to come forward in her position takes a huge amount of courage! They covered this up so this person could abuse more people.

  29. First it's drinking out of toilets….total lie. They are sink/ toilet combination like at other detention centers….now it's child molestation/diaper changing lol

  30. Republican Party… defender of pedophiles and rapists. If you’re an out and proud republican, you need to ask yourself why and how you can still defend any of this. This is disgusting.

  31. Why in God's name is ICE picking up all these children when they EVIDENTLY have nowhere to place them? It makes no sense!! And how much money is it taking to feed all theses folk who have done nothing wrong except to be w/o papers? As of now, we have heard only one allegation of sexual abuse. Can you imagine how many of these young girls and/or boys are being sexually abused even now?

  32. Ignorants! A long time ago someone asked me, why do they call us ignorants?. Well , we knew back then and now now they know too. It was a very well kept secret, but some people just f&*$k themselves.
    And God forgive them.

  33. Make sure this story gets back to Honduras-Guatemala-El Salvador so they stop bringing their kids here.

  34. Hopefully the rest of Americans have had enough of this and are ready to send a message to the EC states that pretty much got duped by the con party. I am 100% sure my father's motives were not to serve in the armed forces for this travesty.

  35. 30% of the so called parents aren't even related to the children they've smuggled into the country. These children are paying a heavy price for Democrats imported votes.

  36. Why don't you do stories about the rapes, murders and uranium sales of the Clintons? The Clintons had Epstein to Chelsea's wedding. Typical abusers.

  37. Republicans truly are a pack of scum worthy only of live cremation. They are evil, evil evil.

  38. America should be ashamed that so many still plan to vote for Trump even after these Trump-caused horrors against children.

  39. heartbreaking. Is this the America defender of freedom? these things don't happen even in the third world. Americans were tolerant in the past, were human. What's happening to you guys? These are children, they do not deserve what you"re doing to them, crossing a border or no crossing, legally staying or otherwise. These are human beings. Send them back or keep them but don't do to them these dishonorable acts. What if they were your children instead? what goes around comes around. I lost hope in your principles and don't believe in your values anymore.

  40. Is Trump and Co. aware that all laws that apply to citizens applies to immigrants, and all immigrants legal or illegal get an legal visa while thier lawsuits are being processed?

  41. People have gone to these facilities that Obama initially set up. People have come back saying it is clean and nobody is drinking toilet water. There is clean water and supplies for people. Rachel Maddow clearly has Trump Derangement Syndrome and by reading these comments so do a lot of other people. Ever notice that old Rachel never has any verifiable sources? It is always anonymous. Come on… Get a grip on all these lies she is constantly spewing.

  42. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN
    LOL LOL 🤣😂🤣😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂🤣🤣😂🤣🤣🤣😂🤣🤣😊🤣

  43. Compassionate people don't encourage people to enter the USA illegally. Leftist have blood on their hands for promising desperate people what they can't deliver. Leftists are cruel, selfish people who only want power. Leftists use poor people as pawns in their little game against conservitives. Leftists are evil. This isn't compassion, it's HATE!

  44. If female gets pulled over by a male cop and needs to be searched, they call in a female officer. Are there no female CBP officers… especially with children.

  45. Shame on America, what about legal US children being beaten tonight and ignored by the authorities. US children who will not eat today, who suffer daily from emotional and physical neglect. I don't think any child should endure any abuse, but please think for yourself. These children are awaiting deportation, due to their parents negligence. Is is comfortable, No, can we do better, yes. but they are not being beaten, they are fed. Why don't we put the blame on their parents/caregivers. Yes the US is a kind nation, but we aren't kind to our own citizens. I encourage everyone, regardless of where they receive their news, to think for themselves, strategically. MSNBC doesn't like Trump, nor do I; are their bad ICE agents, yes – is it pervasive – I doubt it. When did we become a society of sheep?

  46. Their going to sale those children on line because they all are sick people Lord I pray theirs a God who will save those children or let them go back home my GOD where are you .

  47. Dig deeper. Sexual Assaults is happening. The immigrants in custody do not speak out of fear of what the guards (Gestapo) would do to them.

  48. As true as Jesus Christ is in heaven I tried to find the footage of Rachael maddow freaking out about Irish people but could not it was not allowed but if you want to view it go to zeducation a you tube channel

  49. Whoa I was shocked to find Bill Clinton talk on immigration in 1995 State of the Union using words like illegal aliens..our gov't leaders both on left & right disgraceful. History will reveal many truths.

  50. This is how white Americans act.This is not a reflection of black Americans.We would free the children if we could m
