Kids in cages: US politicians hear from migrants in Congress – Politics Video



US lawmakers in Congress have listened to the testimony of a Guatemalan mother whose toddler died of a viral lung infection while in an immigration detention site in the United States.
Several children have already died while in custody at these detention centres.
Democrats who accuse the immigration officials of treating the migrant children poorly were visibly moved at her story. But one Republican representative defended their behaviour.
Al Jazeera’s John Hendren reports from Washington, DC.

  4. Ignorant garbage Latin Americans expect the US to take care of them and their useless children. Their fake tears have literally zero effect. Go home.

  5. If you can't afford to raise a child then get an abortion . Do not try to illegally migrate to the USA in order to give your kid a "better life". It's not fair to the people who are waiting to come legally

  7. Don’t you know what is going on in the American south-west desert ? This beach white-man sheriff and his jews don’t like Jesus and Christians. They want to play cowboys and Indians with this Harley biker junk American military veterans and the church. They want to divide up the America’s and church by race.

  10. Cry all you want it wont fix anything. US cant handle so many people with no means to even care for their own children. How about we sue you for dumping your kids on us.

  11. People are trying to sneak into the country illegally, knowingly breaking the law, and not expecting any type of punishment? The child dieing is sickening and terrible and should have never happened. But this mother forced her child into the country the wrong way.

  12. These people are fleeing their countries due to horrible conditions caused by decades of U.S. imperialistic interference in their countries. Ten years ago the U.S. overthrew the democratically elected President of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya. The results has been ten years of what we see in Libya due to U.S. interference. Many of these people are coming from Honduras. Many are Indigenous and not migrants, illegally here or alien.

    Congress and this administration funds $700 plus per day per detainee of taxpayer dollars to private for profit companies to house these people. That is why we see these horrid conditions. It is all about the Benjamins as profit for these businesses. To cover it up, we are told to hate, blame these victims.

  14. Well i have no doubt the taxpayer saved over 1 milllion over 3 generations here. The mother made the decision to bring the kid here and now wants to pass blame. She does not even speak english. She is complaining about our laws and does not even know the language? We need a FINAL SOLUTION to the illegal immigrant question
