  • The amount of respect I have lost for your work after finding out you’re associated with the next for autism event is astronomical. If you can’t do the one google search it takes to listen to autistic voices on this matter, then I dont trust you to properly research your stories. Nothing about us, without us!

  • I’m sorry John, but under Biden it’s only gotten worse and that’s undeniable, just looks at the videos of the over crowding of all the people we are keeping in camps at the border and all the children being taken from parents and you’re not allowed to even try to record it they don’t want you to see how bad it is, it’s been this way since Obama and of course Biden wouldn’t fix it, he helped create this mess.

  • There needs to be a video on how the asylum system has changed since the new administration has come in, especially since Joe Biden went against his “no deportations for the first 100 days” promise, and has continued to use Title 42 to deport asylum seekers. The news coverage of the border has changed, but the reality of it hasn’t.

  • I hope that everyone who was concerned with these issues during the Trump administration are aware that barely anything has changed since Joe Biden has taken office...hopefully he does something other than just moving them to slightly bigger cells or adding more makeshift prisons to hold these people. I wish candidates who don’t have billionaires and the equally corrupt RNC or DNC backing them which then get the media on board with lifting their choice up as the only candidate their viewers should consider and scare them away from considering candidates who would probably have their backs more than the candidates who are being manipulated by billionaires, corporations, pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies, etc. I think money needs to get the hell out of politics because it is destroying our country and it’s morals! Those who claim to care about morals and the American family actually don’t give a f*ck! They only care about power and getting themselves, their family members, and their buddies richer and keeping the working class and poor down where they belong. They see us as burdens or better yet opportunities to make themselves richer.

    S WS WMåned siden
  • We need to consider that their is a cause to the mass immigration at the US southern border and ask ourselves exactly what that is . Why are these countries failing to protect their own people from gangs and other predators and what makes the victim's more susceptible to victimization from criminals then other citizens in these countries. The answer may be that their own governments can not or do not protect them and we may have a vested interest in helping to protect them in their native counties . The UK sent many German Jewish workers back to Germany , knowing that it was unsafe to do so but it was Germany not England that was responsible for the atrocities committed against them. If people are being abused by their own governments like the Muslim minority in China then we have a responsibility to protect them if we can. Otherwise it is the responsibility of their own government. Saving someone who is Drowning in a swimming pool is clearly the right thing to do but if a hundred people are in the pool at the same time and are all Drowning you may need to think about draining the pool and building a wall around it. We should consider the possibility of ulterior motivation on both sides of the border. When we enable people to live here with out documentation we creating a class of people who will work at their own risk for little money with no rights and no protection. Who will as we sometimes say do the jobs that American's don't want to do. We need to be careful not to allow the American standard for human rights and workers rights to be lowered not to trade OSHA for OH SHUSH . If we have an open border then we should properly protect these immigrants from opportunistic predators . We could offer something like citizenship after five years of probation with all other civil right intact and over that time the requirement of learning and knowing the bill of rights by heart and having no felonies.

They've fled their home country . he conveniently doesn't explain that the "remain in Mexico" policy is for people who fled their home country and passed to Mexico already . It just forces them to apply for asylum in Mexico. Because Why would they need to apply for asylum in the US ?

  • 14:00 Wait a minute, I just realized. So he spends literally hundreds of millions of dollars on a re-election campaign that is just the words "the pandemic is fake" in burning neon letters, then he invokes Title 24 under the grounds that the pandemic is real. His hypocrisy doesn't surprise me anymore, I just want to make sure it's properly documented

I'm convinced that we foreigners have a better, non bias overview of things happening in the US. So refreshing. Thank you John Oliver.

  • Just thinking over it all, I'm just disappointed that many of the adults here in the U.S. could be classified as braindead compared to the intelligence and open mindedness of people even in middle school, and of the many amazing people in my life. I'm surprised I've never met any of these types, but I am grateful that I was raised the way I was. The fact that even a little compassion or sympathy is lost to so many is a shame, as well as revealing. I remember hearing that special phrase at a young age, treat others as you want to be treated. Though I more prefer, imagine yourself in someone else's shoes. It really would give perspective on things. Too bad a lot of people don't have the cognitive thinking to imagine such a thing.
