  1. Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania are beautiful in the fall. Hopefully, the eventual Democratic nominee plans to take a trip this time.

  2. It is heartbreaking to see children crying after learning their parents were arrested. The question many of us have is why wasn’t the owner and employers of the company dragged out in hancuffs?

  4. Aside from that one chick from Hawaii, the dims don’t have one nominee who stands a chance beating Trump (if he runs).

      • If it wasn’t for Hitler you’d be speaking Russian.

      • And, of course, if it wasn’t for Stalin you’d be speaking Russian.

      • And your hostess would be speaking Cantonese if it wasn’t for Vietnam veterans

        • And if it wasn’t for the complete failure of your parents and educators, you wouldn’t be speaking idiot on blogs!

  6. It’s sad. Almost as sad as Kate Steinle’s death while walking arm and arm with her father in SF, or the hundreds of other Americans killed by people here illegally, or the deaths of US servicemen and women in Middle East wars- many of them leaving children behind. Those American children missing deceased parents cry, too. It’s also incredibly sad that we have tried to modernize and rebuild Iraq, only to have it destroyed by terrorists or have money siphoned off by corrupt officials thus depriving people of proper medical facilities. If only we would just enforce the immigration laws or change them….

    • Being orphaned is F’ed up, doesn’t matter where the kid comes from. There are plenty of Iraqi children that have been orphaned at the hands of US “defense forces”. There are plenty of children that have starved to death in Yemen because the US has enabled Saudi Arabia. I guess it isn’t all that surprising that our government continues to treat children this way. It is sad to think of what becomes of these kids, will they hate the government that took their parents? Will they be kept in boarding schools like the Native American kids were many years ago?
      YOU do Know that the US destroyed Iraq right? Keep blaming the brown people? Is that what your comment is about?

  7. This is a school official from the affected county speaking in a southern accent with sympathy on the subject. The contrast with Trump is dramatic.
