  • Why wasn't her Mom taking her across the border?

  • BIDEN's BORDER CATASTROPHE or The Biden-Harris Coronavirus Concentration Camps.

  • Send them to Russia and China. They'll surely help them. Or maybe the muslims can help them. Or go to Canada. Such nice people. Surely they will help them.

  • Worst parents ever... and worst usa government ever to even make them "think" it's ok to come here and break our "laws"

  • Biden spend War money on collaboration and cooperation between US, Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras. Biden and Deb Haaland set up trade and tourism routes. A hospital was built in 10 days so add more accommodation it's not LA's skid row. Follow China's Poverty Alleviation 5 pronged strategy: develop local industry, relocate, ecological restoration, education and social security. Thank goodness migrants are not having forced sterilisations since Traitor Trump's landslide loss to Biden.

  • Thanks biden!! We want trump back!

  • According to the official statistics, South Africa has turned into one of the greatest epicenters of Covid-19 in the world. Since the beginning of April to the 12th July, the cumulative number of infections in South Africa has doubled about every 14 days. On 12 July 2020, 264,184 cumulative cases have been recorded, slightly more than double the 131,800 on 28 June, 14 days before. South Africa was firmly on track to record half a million cumulative infections by 25 July. Community spread appeared unstoppable. At that rate of increase, 1 million would have been infected by 8 August, 2 million by 22 August, 4 million by 5 September, 8 million by 19 September, 16 million by 3 October and some 32 million by 17 October 2020. That would represent 53% of the population of over 59 million people. The daily number of new infections should then have dropped off steeply. On that trend, over the first two weeks of October, between one and two million new infections were likely to occur daily. The growth of new cases in adjoining areas, such as Zimbabwe, Namibia, Eswatini, Botswana and Lesotho was much, much slower - less than one-half to one-third the rate in South Africa. But now, with the current wave in progress, the numbers in these countries are growing in proportion with numbers in SA. On 13 July, the number of new cases in South Africa dropped significantly by about 1,440, or about 11%. The day before, the 12 July 2020, sales of alcoholic beverages were prohibited in South Africa, creating a false impression that the ban was the cause of the drop in numbers. However, this is false, because the normal lag period of some 5 to 10 days between the introduction of a new measure that is effective, and a reduction in case numbers, was completely absent, clearly identifying it as fake. This trend of a reduction of new cases continued daily and became progressively stronger. Today, 8 April, 2021, with a second (or third?) wave tapering down, the official cumulative number of cases in South Africa stands at 1,553,609 instead of well over 50% of the population, had the 'trend' of doubling every 13 or 14 days continued. It had taken some 132 days to double to this latest number. There is no rational reason for a ban on liquor sales to cause such a sudden, steep drop in new cases, and nowhere else has a ban on retail sales of alcoholic beverages been deemed an important measure. Hence the conclusion is that, over the three-and-a-half months before 12 July, the numbers have been manipulated up, as were the numbers on recoveries. Death numbers, on the other hand, were manipulated down: www.businesslive.co.za/bd/national/2020-07-29-excess-deaths-soar-to-more-than-four-times-official-covid-19-toll-mrc-data-shows/ The question is, why have the case numbers been manipulated up? Early this year, South Africa applied for an IMF loan of US$4.3 billion at a very low interest rate. On 27 July 2020, the IMF publicly announced that the loan was granted - www.imf.org/en/News/Articles/2020/07/27/pr20271-south-africa-imf-executive-board-approves-us-billion-emergency-support-covid-19-pandemic Most likely, South Africa was informed of the grant earlier than the public announcement, perhaps around 12 July? Clearly, the numbers in South Africa have been manipulated up to impress on the IMF an urgent need for funds to fight the epidemic in the country. Most of the funds are likely to disappear into the pockets of corrupt people in positions of power and their family. A further question is, what is the real motive for the ban on liquor sales - back in July 2020 and again in early 2021, and once again now around Easter? The answer is that the ban on liquor sales will most likely drive many liquor stores out of business. The liquor trade is seen as lucrative, easy business. White owners of such businesses are exempt on a racist basis of financial assistance to weather the covid storm, including the IMF funds. Many of these businesses are likely to go bankrupt and be bought up at bargain prices by black politicians, their family members www.dailymaverick.co.za/article/2020-07-31-ace-magashules-sons-each-bag-a-free-state-covid-19-contract/amp/?__twitter_impression=true and other black business people, perhaps using some of the IMF funds paid for other contracts where contract prices have been loaded - www.news24.com/news24/southafrica/news/covid-19-sahrc-set-to-probe-gauteng-health-spending-amid-corruption-claims-20200730 And www.dailymaverick.co.za/article/2020-07-30-province-to-disclose-ppe-procurement-details-to-avoid-corruption/ And mg.co.za/coronavirus-essentials/2020-08-06-the-ppe-scandal-that-the-treasury-hasnt-touched/ Fraud and corruption assume many a guise. The South African government is rotten through from top to bottom and the people in power are out on the loot. They saw an opportunity and they jumped on it. But at the same time, they are doing the South African population a grave disservice, endangering peoples' lives and livelihoods - subsequent waves of infections in South Africa are being masked by the huge false first wave. The statistics are being adjusted according to ulterior motives. Such as the opportunities a good crisis offers for personal enrichment. This time, however, the South African black elite defrauded and made fools of the international community, their co-members of the IMF, in addition to their own citizens - perhaps strategically a grave error? Only 5 months after South Africa was granted the USD 4.3 billion IMF loan (which comes to USD 71 per person in South Africa), the South African government cannot find the USD 4 per dose for the Astra Zeneca vaccine to vaccinate the population!

But the cherry on top?? - South Africans like this one: "Samuel Makhetha 23 hours ago @Jan Viljoen no sir, a lot of Africans used their forefathers best method of killing all kinds of flu viruses, steaming using different natural herbs and I'm one of them. No need to pay billions to sons and daughters of Colonialists who still have their own agendas of depopulation of black African people." Not an isolated opinion either! And it takes just one half-civilised saboteur with similar views to leave a freezer door open or flick a switch and thousands of doses of vaccine are lost - as recently happened in South Africa.

  • It's a complicated issue and we need to do keep improving the system and do better, but if the mother of this child were in the states she should be arrested for child endangerment.

  • What happened liberals? Suddenly you are talking about The Wall being a good thing.

  • Just tell Biden that 1000's of future republican voters are storming the border . The wall would be built in days !

  • Abbot needs to stop finger pointing and work WITH federal government set up humane facilities in ALL THESE VACANTS WALMARTS AND OTHER BUILDINGS AVAILABLE. Yes Abbott this means you will have to use state funds too. 🙄 WORK ON A FEDERAL SOLUTION PLEASE BECAUSE IN A RACIST STATE LIKE TEXAS, ABBOTT REFUSES TO HELP.

  • Seem that Biden gonna return to the border wall construction. Don't be surprise is some Democrats now supports the border wall.

  • Joe and Kamala are nowhere to be found near the border. Pathetic incompetency

  • Send them back. Not our kids, not our problem.

  • President Biden, bringing new mutated strains of covid across the border to a town near you.

  • It’s so sad these kids have to flee their countries because of violence and poverty. I wish we can do more for these kids who are just looking for a better life.

    • ischats.info/fun/fNRtiHOAnHaEpXw/v-deo

    • @RogerM With good intentions obviously, and we all know what they say about good intentions don't we.

    • How you gonna help all these children...if you don't take care of all the children in your own country?

  • One way to stop this sort of thing from happening, is not to have a President who invited the illegals up in the first place. He created the mess that TRUMP had controlled, so what happens on the border is a direct result of his actions.

  • Dementia Joe recently told migrants thanks for choosing the USA! Then he says I just dont understand why everyone is crossing our open borders? DERP DERP DERP DERP!!!!!

  • But na there's no crisis...

  • Send them back to their country! Is her mother illegal also, what a travesty. Not sympathetic, we have a crisis get real!

  • They speak in Spanish

  • End the war on drugs.
