Only the fit and healthy people who believe in Jesus, the son of God, should be allowed into the usa.
Why should Americans bear the responsibility of unhealthy, unfit, and, unuseful people who don't even believe in Jesus, our Lord savior?

Actually we need to stop treating others with such racist hate. It needs to stop and it needs to start at the top. We can do so much, but so far we get dropped like a bad habit by a person that should do his job, not bend the rules.

Republicans are immoral and have no humanity, yet they brand themselves as the religious 'Jesus Christ Party.'

This is why The Onion has fallen on such hard times of late. Because satire just can't compete with this kind of reality.

There is NO concept of HUMANITY in Stephen Miller and it has not been in him since at least grade school! Some of his elementary teachers were frightened OF or FOR him as a child! This became more evident as he moved through junior high and high school…. and during university, it was worse. I've NO CLUE what was done to him, but it must have been horrific in extreme? (His family is not known to carry these feelings or acts, apparently…) At any rate, it has been proven to be impossible to instill Humanity in this zombie!

This is unforgivable.
Steven Miller is the millstone in Trump's "Wicked Windmill", grinding the immigrants like grain every day to bake the bread for his base while they attend the circus that's this precidency.

Let's tear it down.

Thinking outside the box… Are not Catholic Churches (or other buildings and vehicles they own) considered sanctuaries, where these medically fragile Immigrants could be protected? Would the Catholic church be able to bring in the medical equipment to support these people. I don't know much about Catholicism, but they could redeem their reputation a bit if they helped out. Other than that, maybe there could be a class action suit, against the Trump administration and the Federal Government?

How about mounting a national "Wanted" poster campaign of Donald Trump, Murderer? Wonder if someplace like the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children could pull off something like that? They have experience in things like that, and even a "Justice" television network now. Seems appropriate the president should be America's Most Wanted.

Gimme a break they know full well what they're doing- they simply do not care! They want to instill the fear of death in anyone who would ever consider coming here.

You can't appeal to the humanity of the inhumane. This administration doesn't see these people as human beings, period. They are taught and fed a ideology than gives way to these monstrous acts. It's innate for us to recoil at the very idea of such acts. Any innate goodness, humanity in them was stamped out before it could take root.
