    The stone walling is a narcissistic manipulation tactic. I believe it's a projection of Trump's disordered mindset thinking onto the HHS who got instructions not to share information. Behind closed doors narcissists terrorize their own family by stone walling. The silent treatment to punish you for calling them out on their BS.

    And why doesn't this harm to children qualify as "high crimes and misdemeanors"? Certainly tearing healthy children from the arms of their parents is a crime against humanity. Sadly we are all getting used to the garbage that comes out of our White House. The bigger problem now as I see it is that there are so many Representatives and Senators who are by their silence complicit with these crimes from the Executive branch.

    Maybe its because you Democrats have a history of kidnapping , trafficking and raping children at your pedophile island….if you don't believe it people?.. Look up the Dr. Phil show about the international pedophile ring being run by the elite.. It involves your government officials, law enforcement, celebrities, etc… Its an open secret in their circle.. that's why Cuomo is blowing smoke!.. If the democrats really care about the migrant children?.. They would enforce the law and prevent them from crossing the border illegally .. The separating of the children started with Bill Clinton…when you fly them out of the state?.. Its easier to exploit them!

    This is horrid beyond belief. Foster Care tends to be a very abusive system. People tend to take in foster kids for a variety of sordid reasons — they want the money (and they don't spend it on the children) or they sordidly abuse the children — once i a while someone takes in a child to be of genuine assistance.

    This video is disturbing. Where are these girls in this video that were transported from one facility walked into another facility suspiciously late in the evening or early morning than escorted out of the building waring covers over their heads put into an unmarked car with unidentified individuals taken to where and why was it done this way?
    It looks suspiciously like trafficking. PLEASE verify the whereabouts of these girls, media, so we know they are safe and either back with family or safe at another destination.
    You can't show a video like this and leave an unknown outcome. We with a heart and compassion in America care what happens with ALL these children. We want and need to know they were either reunited with family or at the least safe and in good care until they are reunited!
    Keep vigilant! It is by your courageous efforts we are apprised of the truth and facts of things otherwise kept from the people. We are depending on you, do not fail us like this administration is. No more lies!

    Will you please remind HHS who pays their wages? We the taxpayer pays their salaries. If they are going to be so brutally against our representatives visiting the centers, they don't deserve to be in their jobs. These are OUR representatives, not Donald Trumps. Once they are elected to congress, they are to represent the best interest of our states and it's people in the light of day as per the sunshine laws.

    These poor babies are be sold into, slaver. Donald Trump has been know to be around sexual predator. This is so EVIL. God doesn't condone what is going on in this country. When all comes to light America will be holding it's head in shame.

    It's a low dark place in our society, when adults start hurting children, if regular ordinary ppl hurt children, they are usely prosecuted and put behind bars, but when government hurts children it's appears they are above the law. The Government needs to be accountable for carrying out this type of behavior. Hope to God every last one of those children are found and given back to their parents. It should not be politics that effect Children, Edlers, and Veterans.

    Those children are most likely, drugged up, with God only knows what? And, they are going thru so much trauma……… You could have cut this off sooner Trump, So back months ago, then the children could have joined up with their parents. Your Message, has traveled All over the World………Do not come to America, one message, plus, The Punishment of these children as well, and, Making $$$$$$$$$$$$ off of all of this, for that Wall…. Plus, Making our Country look Horrible, That we do not care At All About These Children……….And, plus, You do not look good as a leader as Well. Taking these poor Children away from their relatives……..God Have Mercy On Your Soul, All I can Say. Hope you and your family sleep Peaceful At Night!!

    With 10,000 children not counting parents coming over the border per month it's a little hard to process them overnight. Everything takes time. Who knows maybe they'll send the parents to NY to get their children.
