There is a record migrant surge at the border after President Biden began allowing unaccompanied migrant children and many families to remain in the U.S. Nearly 170,000 migrants were taken into custody at the border last month and officials estimate a record-breaking 160,000 unaccompanied children could cross the border this year.» Subscribe to NBC News: nbcnews.to/SubscribeToNBC

  • No media asked Democrats "Why are you not enforcing existing immigration law?" "Why do you make citizens follow Covid rules, and push non tested and known positive all around the country?" "Why aren't local officials told where you are dropping the illegal aliens?"

  • So if everyone flee there country amd come here, who would be left in there country? If they're fleeing from harm and danger, when there's no-one else to terrorize in their homeland, wouldn't there terrorizers come over here as well if they see how eaay it is to do so? I feel for ANYONE looking to come here but at what point do these people think, they can do it easy peasy? I work for welfare and before the pandemic, the audacity of illegal immigrants to tell me to my face that they been here for 5 years and by law they demand benefits? Most talk to you with no respect and bad attitude all the while as a state employee, i must keep my composure and respect them in return? I explain that it's still a process but they argue me down meanwhile to be employeed i still struggle from time to time with 3 children and barely get help😩 actually i don't to be honest. These people spend thousands to come over. Where are they getting this money from? How about the officials do something of where they coming from. I never hear from their government about how they feel about this. A world with no firm law creates chaos.

  • According to the US Census Bureau, the Black population in America is 13.4%. How do you explain that the USA is systematically racist when the White majority elected a Black President twice? What about the millions of Blacks holding leadership positions, including Obama and Congress members? Are they considered Black Supremacists? Are interracial couples racist? Are all White people privileged? Instead of being grateful, many of those successful individuals vilify the country that has made them wealthy, famous and powerful. Biden should be the last person to talk about racism given his extensive record of denigrating Blacks with his derogatory comments and actions. Ironically, he now pretends to be the savior of the minorities by lecturing Americans with his rhetoric on systemic racism, White privilege and Black victimhood. He is destroying the USA with radical policies. Shameful! Don't cave in to the woke mob! WAKE UP AMERICANS BEFORE THE COUNTRY IS DESTROYED BY THE RADICAL LEFT. Where will woke politicians, corporate elites, Hollywood celebrities, media anchors, athletes and religious leaders who hate the USA live if their own country falls?

  • USA 🇺🇸 prays for UBI ( Anti - Poverty Bill ) Of $3,000/Month tax free for life to all poor citizens! The first $36,000/Year is tax free to lift everyone out of poverty and eradicate homelessness and labor exploitation! Flat tax of 3% after $36,001 and up to $100,000. Flat tax of 7% of $100,001 and up to $400,000. Flat tax of 11% of $400,001 and up to $1 million. Flat tax of 15% of $1 million and up to $11 million. Then to eradicate and punish greed; a massive tax of 55% anything over $11 million! Goal is to purge extreme greed and greed will increase UBI structure 🥰

  • Miss Harris is loving it and the more she watches the news the more she can’t sit still. I’m not being disrespectful but doesn’t she see everything she’s doing is coming back to her nationalities. She knows people are suffering especially children because some are being snatched up from wolves and she’s hurting our country during a time of a pandemic. I’m not being cruel because I don’t think that way but isn’t it something to think about? She doesn’t care about anyone but herself. Why don’t any black activists speak up and tell her to listen and act right? They won’t. So I gotta tell her. I don’t hate her I don’t hate anyone and god’s my witness but I will question and scold for the best. This administration is off their rocker

Useless VP will not even go to see the abuse, filth, and mess. If it were her children would she care? Evil witch letting this continue.😝

  • So when it is "ped oh file" Biden the fake news state media refers to it as a challenge (even though the brain dead 78 year old told illegals to surge the border). When The real president was in charge the fake news state media referred to it as a disaster and a crisis *( despite the numbers currently are far, far exceeding the numbers experienced when Trump was in charge). But the brain dead liberal zombies will accept whatever story the state media tells them.

Having the ability to walk into another country without permission, disrupting a component of their national security effort, be given a ride to your intended destination, receive financial gain from the citizen taxpayers, and having the citizen government look upon you with higher regard than those taxpayers that footed the bill.

  • The CCP has begun to supervise the management of passports for going abroad, so it is now very difficult for Chinese people to go abroad, that is, they are locked in disguise and prohibit people from going abroad. However, Chinese people who go abroad have to prepare a lot of documents before they are allowed to go abroad, so all countries in the world should pay attention. People who can easily travel from China to foreign countries are generally the CCP’s special agents.

Follow China's Poverty Alleviation 5 pronged strategy: develop local industry, relocate, ecological restoration, education and social security. Migrants not receiving forced sterilisations since Traitor Trump's landslide loss to Biden. Kamala arranged visits to Mexico and Guatemala.
