  1. So Mexico and the whole South American continent is run by drug lords, cartels, and smugglers? What have each country president done with $550M PER YEAR sent to them from the USA since President Jimmy Carter administration? USA have been paying them for 4 decades now.

  2. instead of fleeing, it's time for the Mexican people to step up, end the corruption, and fix there country! only the Mexican people can fix Mexico! outside influence or funding isn't helping and never has helped.. America can't solve the world's problems. Mexicans need to fix Mexico! America is far from perfect but watching this reminds me how blessed and grateful I am to have been born in the USA. as tough as it is here… at least it's not Mexico.

  3. When an airplane decompresses suddenly and the oxygen masks drop, what do they tell you? Put it on yourself FIRST, then worry about the person next to you (even if it's your own child) SECOND. You are of no use to anyone unless you take care of you FIRST. America needs to follow that example.

  4. Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
    Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.
    “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted".
    Matt 23 NIV

    You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything, in Heaven above or in the Earth beneath, or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents up to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

    "If my people who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land."

    And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

    This, then, is how you should pray:

    Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.

    For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

    These are the teachings,
    The Righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ our God.
    REPENT, and start doing what is right.
    If you abide my teachings, you are really my disciples; then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

    A time is coming and has now come, that the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth. God is Spirit, so his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and Truth; they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

    In the New Heaven and New Earth,
    only Righteousness dwells.
    May the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ our God be with you all.

  5. They’re not chasing the “American Dream” but trying to survive. Two massive hurricanes, a government who has done nothing to help them, no jobs, their homes and meager belongings literally buried in mud or under water, gang violence, hunger and a pandemic. I would say they are fleeing for their and their children’s lives

  6. I know of a woman , who has been in the United States for 13 years . She refuses to take her citizenship. She worked off the books for years . She collects State Benefits and taught her children the same .. They love it here .. our government, loves their smack in the face they keep paying for her salvation! How she keeps getting away it ??.. Is beyond me !

  7. Sympathizing with immigrant families, maybe ABC has forgotten that this is illegal, why try to make people feel sorry for them? Just like saying it was nothing but children making the trip over here to get away from a bad life, ALL LIES just so us Americans can float the immigrant tab. This country and its news corporations are being ran into the ground.

  8. We have to start taking care of ourselves not other people the government needs to get it that through their head help us first then help others

  9. Wake up! This is a nightmare ! Educate yourself, love thy neighbor and fight for all of humanity. Their are evil evil forces at play. Open your eyes and tune into the global wavelength. What’s really going on under the cloak and dagger?
