  1. This is disgusting! Theyโ€™re bringing diseases and we canโ€™t sustain this financially. If we didnโ€™t have to support people that have no business to be here we could focus on the mental health crisis in this country no we have to support people draining all the resources

  2. Close the border we need the jobs the economy has produced we Americans shouldnโ€™t have to compete wilts illegal aliens enough is enougj

  3. Securing the borders? LMAO they aren't securing the border. Border patrol has become nothing more than illegal immigrants slave escorts

  4. Oh, cry me a river. Past poor management is on you. Dems have been colluding with the cartels for decades. Complain to them.
    Congress must build the wall first. Then address immigration issues that should have been fixed decades ago. Border towns and cities should not have included illegal trade in their commerce plan. If you don't have enough employees, hire more. Who is working on your business strategy?? It needs to stay current to the times.
    And how are these invaders able to travel all over our country? They are pretty clean, well dressed, with unlimited finances. Isn't that nice from them? They are scamming America, folks.
    PROTECT AMERICAN CITIZENS, VETERANS, SENIORS, HOMELESS, POOR FIRST!!

  5. Close the Marine base on Okinawa and them down in Yuma to help sbut the border down North Korean style. By the way, there's 7000 military personnel in Guam that could be used also.

  6. YOU SHOULD MAKE CHER. AND FRIENDS COVER BOARDER PATROL AT SHELTERS . CHER WANTS TO CHANGE DIAPERS AND HAND OUT JUICE !!! SHE'S SO GLOBAL AND COOL. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  7. Make Mexican illegals great again? Do something Trump. Send armed troops like the armed smugglers. Defend America!!๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

  8. ………… WHERE'S OUR 1.2 MILLION MILITARY? ENOUGH STORIES ! GET IT DONE SO WE CAN MOVE ON !

  9. Border patrol agents are more likely to confront a terrorist on his day off than at the border.
    Fake border crisis

  10. Close the border, charge a toll of $20 to cross. MAKE THEM PAY!!!!!! Mexico is not doing enough to stop this, and are profiteering from it. Boycott Mexican labor, and Manufactured goods. DO not hire Mexican workers, and there there will be no reason to be here. If they are sick, let Mexico take care of them, it is not our responsibility.

  11. Clandestine American involvement in Central America is driving the current invasion at the southern border. The meddling is clandestine because, the american media choose not to report on it. Research the Obama administration program called, fast & Furious. Why did Obama's AG choose to supply crime cartels south of the border with weaponry? Is the result of Fast & Furious, this invasion?

  12. It is Mexico that bus these people right up to our border riding on top of trains. Cut off all Aid to Mexico and it will stop.

  13. Congress will allow trade/commerce loss to USA?
    Congress of the House must work together foe USA and stop ignoring with their foolishness.

    Now evaluate the trade/commerce loss of this crisis and Speaker Pelosi will shut the mic to bear the loss?

    Migrants going to Miami? Rich migrants!

  14. Always about money, always about profits and revenue. NEVER about the costs to American workers and taxpayers. So done with this invasion already.

  15. If the system so overwhelmed why do you keep taking them and keep saying your system is breaking apparently you want them to keep coming have you no sense to cap it off say no more entry. I bet you more American people have more guts than you do they'll put a stop to it let us run the show will show you how to put a stop to it.

  16. WHEN are the demoRATS going to Quit fighting Trump and go back to work and settle this crisis? Build the damned WALL !!!

  17. Any political party that defends an action that goes against the safety of its citizens does not deserve support. The dems don't get it. Their anti-American ideology is counter to America's ideals, safety, prosperity, security, etc..,
    And what also concerns me, @Fox Business is that the Dem party is being allowed to act as TWO parties. One side the Democrats, the other Socialist. Is this allowed under US political party guidelines/rules?
    @Fox News Please do a report on this. Thanks. ๐Ÿ˜€

  18. do what the democrats want stop apprehending them, let them wander around with no food, water, etc by the boarder, once they find that out they will think twice about it, they know if picked up they are all set, let them figure it out without our help

  19. Bus ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL of them to Washington DC & let them stay there till their court date. It will quickly bring that city to a standstill included traffic, food, housing & hospitals. I understand the is a really nice pond there that they can swim, bath & fish in, called the reflection pool. Lots of green grass for tents where they can even have their anchor baby born there while waiting on their court date.

  20. Why aren't fingerprints taken of those families entering and put on file? Then when new arrivals come in cross match for fingerprints, if they are matched from another entry we need to find a serious holding place to keep them until real parents get involved. I'm sure you get the idea here.

    Unclaimed children could then go into the adoption circle. Many people would welcome them in their family as their adopted child. Win, Win both ways.

  21. Our tax dollars are paying the bus fees to bring them into the United States. Border patrol is assisting illegals to travel to cities.

  22. stop this All out invasion of the us now stop all of these criminals invaders free loaders from entering into the us at all cost

  23. THIS IS WHAT YOU GET! Don't back the Border Wall! The Only thing that he wants is to pay the Border Patrol to work extra shifts( like they already do!) To shuffle more people across the border!_Then he has Sun Metro ship them to s Catholic girls school to house them! He and Yuma AZ's Mayor want FEDERAL FUNDS for this crisis( they said we didn't have last year, to BUS And FLY these ILLEGALS TO ANY ONE ELSES CITY! The city of the Illegals CHOOSING!!! YOUR CITY AMERICA!
    I know! THEY ARE FLOODING INTO MY MIDWEST CITY!!! My family is from Yuma AZ!!! They left the Border!!! For good reason! A lot of these people are ill! They are carrying DISEASES, FROM MEASELS TO AIDS & LEPROSY!!! So I say let them face the beast they created! Then they can see what everyone else is dealing with!!! Like he said, " They only stay here for 10 DAYS!!!" SO IT'S OK TO PUSH HIS PROBLEMS ON THE REST OF AMERICA AS LONG SS HIS COMMERCE IS GROWING!!!
    And I found out from YUMA'S Mayor, IF THEY HAVE KIDS WITH THEM THEY ARE RELEASED WITH MINIMAL PROCESSING PROCEDURES!!! A quick few questions and a quick picture! They they wait to be released! SCREW THEM! THEY SHOULD BE TURNED AROUND AND SENT TO STAY IN MEXICO UNTIL THEY CAN BE PROCESSED AND FACE A JUDGE!
    MEXICO'S PRESIDENT ISN'T STOPPING THEM! Yeah, a few hundred so it looks like some sort of effort. But they half of them broke out. MX NEEDS TO STOP THEM AT THEIR BORDER! OTHERWISE BY INTERNATIONAL LAW THE FIRST SAFE COUNTRY HAS TO TAKE THEM IN! THAT WOULD BE MEXICO!!!

  24. SENDEM TO CALIFORNIA ASK PELOSI TO BE ESPPONSOR TAKE THEM TO HER HOUSE ALSO TO GOVERNOR HOUSE IN SACRAMENTO SEE WHAT A DEMOCRAT WILL DO.

  25. We have an illegal immigration crisis. We are not collecting the illegals with any seriousness here in California. Time to get serious and make it happen. Being here illegally is a crime. Lets enforce the law and deport them.

  26. Convince me Democrats are not the Anti-American Enemy. Shut that NGO down. We should not be aiding these Illegal Aliens in any way. Processed doesn't mean Legal. It means they broke the law and have a court date. Screw every politician that makes any claim that these people are not ILLEGAL.

  27. Congress will allow trade/commerce loss to the U.S.A
    Congress of the House must work together for the U.S.A and stop ignoring with their foolishness. Close the border we need the jobs the economy has produced we Americans shouldnโ€™t have to compete wilts illegal aliens enough is enough.

    stop this All out invasion of U.S. now stop all of these criminals invaders freeloaders from entering into the U.S. at all cost

  28. How many Republicans have the contracts to build more detention centers?
    There are already 200 detention centers. Illegal Entry is a Class C Trespass in
    Texas, $500 fine, and drive them right back to Mexico. Sheriffs need to get
    some posse deputized. Volunteer with the sheriffs, men and women!

  29. Why would you even consider helping $1on these people? We owe these people nothing. Especially none of our money and resources. Log them in and send them BACK across the border with a court date. Reform immigration laws and welfare laws,voting laws. It will quit happening.

  30. Like we are really worried about avacados, cali., grows that and many of our fruit and vegetables,,so why are we worried,,,needless worry, this is just fake crap,,we dont have to get from mexico, their are other countries,,hell we have states here that grows these same things, so, maybe you wont have 50 fruits or vegetables or fruits,,be thankful for what you have, their are dems and gop who refuse to deal with immigration,,,but the people will vote them out, if they tey to give amnesty, or keep these millions of illegals in this country,

  31. Time to get tough on illegals crossing our border, we have been to soft on illegals and the rest of us are tired of all the illegals coming here. If you dont stop them we can vote you out next election. NO MORE CATCH AND RELEASE.

  32. Either we have a Border or we do not ? At this point we do not . All who cross are given Bus rides into the Country as safe passage . Churches and other groups who should be more concerned with their own Flocks are spending most , if not all of their time & money on those that should Not be here . Quite simply , we are being flooded with Illegals and it's all by design . How much more of this Americans are willing to take and support is beyond me . Just remember . It's your Taxes that are paying for all of this BS .

  33. Texas republicans are hypocrites ,there are just as many illegals living the good life in Texas as there are in California, and Texas has been a red state for 60 years .Hell, you pretty much have to speak Spanish here to get any job even with a freaking degree ,Greg Abbot married his Mexican maid ,these posers don't care about illegal immigration at all .

  34. Build the wall, Hire 2 big trucking co.one from mexico for their side,one for our side exchange trailers at exchange station so border control can check everything out and trucks can be on the way to where they need to go ,that Border is closed other then this would allow trade/commerce going and no illegal immigrants, and nothing impacts overall economy for Mexico or the U.S.
    see how hard was that to come up with

  35. THERE IS A BORDER CRISIS ONLY BECAUSE THERE IS A BORDER.
    WELCOME FELLOW IMMIGRANTS. THE U.S. NEEDS YOU.

  36. The only crisis is letting those hogs come in and suck tit at the government trough while American work and pay taxes to support those bums.

  37. Don't let them in.๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ 

  38. The Inca, the Mayan's and the Aztec's are rolling over in their sacred graves. They accomplished more centuries ago than you miserable disease ridden coward beggars could do in the modern age! You should build a beautiful country on your own land instead of invading our borders to beg for scraps like a dog. No worse than a dog. We don't even respect you as human beings. Look at you, filthy, riddled with disease, can't even feed your children? You come here with your uneducated low IQ family and can do nothing but beg and pick freaking fruit? Seriously, before you get to the border, have enough self respect to take your own lives. We have enough trash already…

  39. Congress has to get their act together and get the illegal immigration problem ficed. It's going to affect trade, hospitals, our precious children in school, businesses especially with diseases. then it will affect each and every American citizen !
