  • an undocumented employee is a slave and america is against slavery therefore it is impossible to employ undocumented workers. thats why tere are no illiegal emigrants in america

  • More propaganda. .. There were no drug dealers, there were no terrorists plotting to blow the country up. People wanted to work and pull their weight. A fact that is cleverly forgotten by the holier than thou. The huddled masses are yearning for food stamps, government sponsored housing and health care, And SSI, supplemental security income. The good life.

  • Mr. Cuccinelli, being that this administration and yourself are willing to rewrite the words on the Statue of Liberty, then Trumps' spiritual leaders and the evangelical community should rewrite the Bible to fit the re-publican beliefs; starting with Matthew 25:31-46 [KJV].
    The Sheep and the Goats

    31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32 And before him shall be gathered all >>>nations:<<< and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth [his] sheep from the goats: 33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

    34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed [thee]? or thirsty, and gave [thee] drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took [thee] in? or naked, and clothed [thee]? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done [it] unto one of the least of these >>>my brethren,<<< ye have done [it] unto me.

    41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did [it] not to one of the least of these, ye did [it] not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

    According to this administration, it's okay to be called a goat as long as you fall in line with their point of view, myself, I'd rather this country be called "my brethren" rather than go into everlasting punishment.

  • The Cooch! So “MAGA” actually means regressing back to before 1881, when we received the Statue of Liberty? I always suspected that they wanted to go back that far and this confirms it. They ADMIT to being deplorable, believe them.

  • "False" social security numbers are social security numbers issued to American citizens and stolen (identity theft) by illegal aliens to get employment. How much does that identity theft cost innocent American citizens? This commentator forgot to mention that stolen social security cards are also used to get credit in someone else's name and literally ruin people's lives.
    The poem on the statue of liberty called "The new colossus" has Nothing to do with US immigration laws and does not affect our asylum laws either. What' s wrong with asking legal immigrants to be able to support themselves instead of living of government assistance as soon as they immigrate to our country? (it has been in our immigration laws for a long time).
    MSNBC is really trying to change the narrative, clouding the issue and confusing people about our immigration laws and policies.

  • Cuccinelli gaslights us while peddling a vile, filthy, immoral, and anti-American ideology. His family benefited from the welcome that America gave them… now he turns on similar people to spew his hate and treason. He is garbage that doesn't deserve to live in America, and all real Americans know it.

  • That's not possible for poor Americans to not be on public charge at some point&time In their lives why there are not enough jobs to sustain poor families&those on low income wages….

  • The faster we get Donald Trump out of office the faster we can start healing and start undoing all the horrible things he's done to our country and become a country that we used to be

  • Can I just segway for a sec … I've watched that "Inspiring America" promo clip likely thousands of times over the last several years. I've never seen the show and likely never will. I don't have cable or satellite television and never will. The flying crotch shot is interesting but certainly not inspiring me to go out and subscribe to a service that has no appeal for me. Enough already!

  • This is such an outrage!! I'll be so glad when this administration is voted out of office & we can put our country back together…

  • More grotesque racism, bigotry and bastardry from this abomination of a regime. Great point Lawrence made: Immigrants are a net GAIN for the economy.

  • Hey Cuccinelli – go back to where you came from! How does that feel, you hypocrite treasonous, loser? You sold your soul to Lucifer (trump). Good luck with that!

  • The writing later added to the Statue of Liberty is a nice sentimental bit of prose but ultimately has nothing to do with fair immigration policy. Idiots like you offer nothing to the issue beyond the hopes for open borders and offering citizenship to future Democrat voters.

  • So trump doesn’t pay taxes or very little considering his income. Cost tax payers millions with his golf trips. What about those so called charges. Hardly an immigrate can compare to that kind of waste

  • When you read the whole poem you really understand what Emma Lazarus was saying, Sadly most USA people won't do that

  • how can any of you take this guy odonnell seriously. everynight he hates on trump. he is no believer in God…. he believes in satan. "thou shalt not slander your neighbor" an original commandment. in addition, scripture tells us that we should pray for our leaders. but, everynight this guy hates on trump. but, look at the majority of your posts….. who do you serve? seems like a lot of hate here.

  • Peopel are saying that trump wants to get rid of the statue of liberty, replacing it with a statue of trump, bigly big…paid for by nambia

  • American citizens have now become so deranged that they are mad about no longer getting to pay for immigrants who only come to get welfare. Trump derangement syndrom!

  • He said drain the swamp, it's time to flush the toilet. There is over flow of sewage in this white house.VOTE HIM OUT

  • Fine… rewrite what's on the Statue of Liberty. If that can be done, then the 2nd amendment can be changed, too.

    He says the phrase on Liberty was written during a certain time period and meant something for that time. The same can be said of the 2nd amendment. It was written for a certain time that has nothing to do with today.

  • Marco Rubio’s family got A LOT of subsidies when they immigrated from Cuba, including his tuition. They immigrated as 'REFUGEES" and certainly DID NOT use a LEGAL port of entry.

  • This video speaks alot of truth im surprised they said this on mainstream media! Well in the upcoming elections Trump and the Republican party are finished!!!!! Good people will rise up and vote for people who actually mean what they say and want to help the aversge american citizen

  • The Immigrants contribute millions to the social care fund and removing them will cause that fund to collapse. That is not a bug, its the feature.. THAT is the ultimate goal. The republicans don't want a social care network they want slaves that work for pitiful wages until they drop dead. While they in their gilded towers look down upon the rest of the country counting the money that they make.

  • Enough with these buffoons
    We need to put the clown in his place… nowhere near public office… go back to ducking over the people who are dumb enough to do “business” with him… or basically helping Russian funds enter the country, his only financial backer

  • That is not what he's wanting he's wanting people that won't come over here and automatically get loans for businesses that a regular Americans can't get he's not wanting people to come over here and on welfare and food stamps and housing immediately he said stand on their own two feet like all the people that came over before we're able to work not get on government programs that's what he's wanting and it's not just Spanish people as Russian people Somali people people from all over the world so get your facts straight and quit spreading fake news are you trying to do Spread spread hate between the races like all the rest of the New World Order you satanic Illuminati fake

  • As an ex business owner that had several employees over the years…I was never able to use a fake ss# for any employee. We had to make a copy of it and keep it in their files. Then we had to report the new employee to the IRS ,with their documentation, with in the first month of them working for us. To clam that they have fake ss numbers is an embarrassment to this country. They have, what is called a green cards, that allow them to work here legally and that is in place of the ss cards. When u work there is a portion of money that is taken out or ur check for the SS fund no matter if u have a ss card or not. so ur right about the part where they pay in but they dont get to clam it. But if they all have fake ss cards then we have a way bigger problem in this country!

  • I used to admire the USA. Looking up Lady Liberty really once meant something to me. Now I think my home in the EU provides more freedom and civility to her citizens than the US. We enjoy more paid (!) days off (25 up to 40!) than Americans. Our health care system provides for everyone. You know healthy citizens are more productive employees also! We invest in future clean energy instead of digging yesterday's coal. I used to admire America's diversity and openness. But obviously there are no United States anymore. There are only the Divided States of Trumperica left. A country praising Russia's Putin and North Korea's Kim. I used to learn and believe America stands for democracy and freedom. But all that has changed. And I feel a lot more comfortable anywhere in the EU now. Bye bye USA. A country with red MAGA hats yet crumbling of world record deficit (financed by China!), mass shootings and a Statue that welcomes the rich, the weathy and billionaire few, instead of "huddled masses". America is in decline and it soon will show. The opposite of MAGA occurs and toothless crowds cheer of joy to their Dear Leader Kim il Trump who takes away health care and provides guns!

  • It seems that these republican Stooges have either never heard about the Laws of Cause and Effect, (Karma), or don't believe it. Be Assured, they soon will!

  • Here are some INDISPUTABLE
    republican socialist truths, trillions of your tax dollars to the rich &
    corporations for their tax give away, trillions of your tax dollars to bail out
    corporate American wall street banks, billions of your tax dollars to subsidize
    the fossil fuel & chemical industries, billions to possibly trillions of
    your tax dollars to subsidize "Private" for profit prisons, millions
    of your tax dollars to help Trump enrich his corrupt family at his resorts,
    hotels & golf courses. Trillions of your tax dollars that go to military
    contractors & not actually to the men & women serving. Now tell me
    again how you can't afford to help the tax payer with less costly social
    programs? I dare you to argue these truths that you the tax payer socialize for
    the rich!

  • "Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame, with conquering limbs astride from land to land; Here at our sea-washed sunset gates shall stand, a mighty woman with a torch, whose flame is the imprisoned lightning, and her name, Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command the air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame. "Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she with silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door." Donald Trump needs his @$$ kicked HARD Nov 3 2020.

  • I have been saying this for years !!!!! Illegal immigrants who work pay tax's and the government stays with the Tax's because they are illegals and can't claim them , they also pay Merchant tax when they buy products !!!

  • They prey on immagrants in many ways. They make'em pay 20% of their wages to 401k's. Not telling them they have to show proof of citizenship to get the money out!

  • Commentator makes good point re social sec. He must be unaware, though, immigrants from S. Europe, 1920s, passing thru Ellis Isle, most all had to have sponser. No bennies, welfare, social sec. Worked 6/7 day week, 12 hrs, before 40 hr wrk wk passed yrs. to bring him up to date. Illegal unrelenting invasion, yes, unarmed invasion crowding limited border facilities these days. These illegals just happen to be Hispanic, so commentator can accuse Pres of racism. Commentator makes no mention of Hispanics, legally waiting in line. Is that racism, also? Or, is he just jumping on the wagon like other libs?

  • We Virginians have known for years that Cuccinelli was awful. He was one of the last of the “old Dixie” guard. Now we are true blue and never going back!

  • Public church is also known as Donald Trump he has put such a burden on our United States government with all his vacations and all his tariff fights and causing nothing but friction between so many different people he needs to leave

  • Several times in message board conversations, Trump supporters have asked why so many people say bad things about Trump, when he's done nothing but good.

    At first I thought they were being funny, but soon realized they weren't even aware of Trump's wrongdoings.

    It turns out that most of them get all their "news" from Fox News, which never mentions the bad things Trump does.

    So as a public service I'm posting this link, which lists all of Trump's evil deeds, starting with the viciously racist birther movement, for which Trump gets full credit.

  • If these illegals are contributing to social welfare but not able to receive anything back sounds like a major injustice! But don't worry, President Bernie Sanders is on the case! Health care is a human right!

  • Well I’m rewriting the bible then… I’m not happy with the ending.. it needs more of a Hollywood twist somewhere.. and too many religious people..

  • Everyone who wants to get rid of Trump please know that the best and ONLY way to get rid of him is to REPLACE THE REPUBLICAN PARTY because they're the ones that control the ELECTORAL COLLEGE and that's the only reason why Trump is President.We can't afford to rely on the Majority votes in 2020.if we don't replace the Republican Electoral College Trump WILL win again.

  • The statue of liberty has nothing to do with immigration. It was given as a gift by the French to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the U.S. The poem titled “The New Colossus” by Emma Lazarus was added 17 years later in 1903 and is just that – a poem

    The poem on the Statue of Liberty monument does not mandate endless immigration to the United States, former Kansas Secretary of State and U.S. Senate candidate Kris Kobach says.

    This week, President Trump’s administration announced the upcoming implementation of the “Public Charge” rule whereby welfare-dependent foreign nationals will be less likely to be allowed to permanently resettle in the U.S. as they burden American taxpayers with billions in annual costs.

    Elected Democrats and media pundits have routinely claimed that the U.S. can not implement immigration controls because of a poem emblazoned on the Statue of Liberty.

    In an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Daily, Kobach detailed how the poem does not dictate or mandate national immigration law and how the political left has falsely claimed that the exclusion of foreign welfare-seekers in immigration is unprecedented.
    CLICK ON LINK TO LISTEN:

    “The left has used this poem … to try to argue for open borders and its not that at all. The poem is coming from the 1880s, 1890s. The ‘tired, the poor, the hungry yearning to breathe free,’ they’re coming to a United State, that was very different,” Kobach said. “They were not coming to a welfare state and they were coming legally … there were very strict laws in place in the 1880s, actually at about the same time, that put restrictions on people coming in, including the public charge doctrine — that is you were likely to become … someone the state had to support rather, you were told to leave, you were excluded at the entry point.”

    “The other thing is that they were not coming into a welfare state, that is the biggest difference,” Kobach continued. “Right now, we have a system … are coming illegally to a welfare state and that is causing a huge burden on the taxpayer. There was no welfare state in the 1880s, 1890s, and so this notion that ‘This is applicable today, everyone should come right in if you’re tired, hungry, or poor.’ They’re coming into a welfare state. As Milton Friedman said, you can’t have open immigration and a welfare state.”

    Kobach told the story of a U.S. Border Patrol official who was recently asked by a migrant arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border where she could obtain an EBT card, otherwise known as food stamps.

    “This lady says, ‘Where do I get my free food card? Where do I get my paper to get the free food card?'” Kobach said. “Word had gotten around among the incoming illegal aliens that you come to America and they give you a free food stamps card.”

    “National policy by poetry by the Democrats. It’s ridiculous,” Kobach said. “In every immigration regulation, every immigration law should be based in the national interest of the U.S. citizens and those interests are economic and security and a whole host other things. It’s just ridiculous … Just like your home needs a door and walls, a nation needs a door and walls.”

    The Public Charge rule is set to serve as a billion-dollar tax cut for American taxpayers to the sum of nearly $60 billion a year, as Breitbart News has noted. This is the amount taxpayers spend every year on paying for the welfare, crime, and schooling costs of the country’s mass importation of 1.5 million new, mostly low-skilled legal immigrants.

    The most recent study by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) notes that about 63 percent of noncitizen households in the U.S. use at least one form of taxpayer-funded welfare, while only about 35 percent of native-born American households are on welfare. This means that noncitizen households use nearly twice as much welfare as native-born American households.

    Currently, there is an estimated record high of 44.5 million foreign-born residents living in the U.S. This is nearly quadruple the immigrant population in 2000. The vast majority of those arriving in the country every year are low-skilled legal immigrants who compete against working and middle-class Americans for jobs.

    The poem on the Statue of Liberty monument does not mandate endless immigration to the United States, former Kansas Secretary of State and U.S. Senate candidate Kris Kobach says.

    This week, President Trump’s administration announced the upcoming implementation of the “Public Charge” rule whereby welfare-dependent foreign nationals will be less likely to be allowed to permanently resettle in the U.S. as they burden American taxpayers with billions in annual costs.

    Elected Democrats and media pundits have routinely claimed that the U.S. can not implement immigration controls because of a poem emblazoned on the Statue of Liberty.

    In an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Daily, Kobach detailed how the poem does not dictate or mandate national immigration law and how the political left has falsely claimed that the exclusion of foreign welfare-seekers in immigration is unprecedented.

    “The left has used this poem … to try to argue for open borders and its not that at all. The poem is coming from the 1880s, 1890s. The ‘tired, the poor, the hungry yearning to breathe free,’ they’re coming to a United State, that was very different,” Kobach said. “They were not coming to a welfare state and they were coming legally … there were very strict laws in place in the 1880s, actually at about the same time, that put restrictions on people coming in, including the public charge doctrine — that is you were likely to become … someone the state had to support rather, you were told to leave, you were excluded at the entry point.”

    “The other thing is that they were not coming into a welfare state, that is the biggest difference,” Kobach continued. “Right now, we have a system … are coming illegally to a welfare state and that is causing a huge burden on the taxpayer. There was no welfare state in the 1880s, 1890s, and so this notion that ‘This is applicable today, everyone should come right in if you’re tired, hungry, or poor.’ They’re coming into a welfare state. As Milton Friedman said, you can’t have open immigration and a welfare state.”

    Kobach told the story of a U.S. Border Patrol official who was recently asked by a migrant arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border where she could obtain an EBT card, otherwise known as food stamps.

    “This lady says, ‘Where do I get my free food card? Where do I get my paper to get the free food card?'” Kobach said. “Word had gotten around among the incoming illegal aliens that you come to America and they give you a free food stamps card.”

    “National policy by poetry by the Democrats. It’s ridiculous,” Kobach said. “In every immigration regulation, every immigration law should be based in the national interest of the U.S. citizens and those interests are economic and security and a whole host other things. It’s just ridiculous … Just like your home needs a door and walls, a nation needs a door and walls.”

    The Public Charge rule is set to serve as a billion-dollar tax cut for American taxpayers to the sum of nearly $60 billion a year, as Breitbart News has noted. This is the amount taxpayers spend every year on paying for the welfare, crime, and schooling costs of the country’s mass importation of 1.5 million new, mostly low-skilled legal immigrants.

    The most recent study by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) notes that about 63 percent of noncitizen households in the U.S. use at least one form of taxpayer-funded welfare, while only about 35 percent of native-born American households are on welfare. This means that noncitizen households use nearly twice as much welfare as native-born American households.

    Currently, there is an estimated record high of 44.5 million foreign-born residents living in the U.S. This is nearly quadruple the immigrant population in 2000. The vast majority of those arriving in the country every year are low-skilled legal immigrants who compete against working and middle-class Americans for jobs.

  • They are attempting to turn America into some extension of Putin's pseudo-democratic Czarist Russia. And, for Cuccinelli, he can't seem to understand that his Mussolini-Fascist ideas that even under the umbrella of the Tea Party could not win him Virginia Governorship amounts to total rejection of him and his racist values by the good People of America.

  • They called me a dago and wop when I was a kid, Same as it ever was! Why can we not learn from history??? And why can we not try to make America a more perfect union???

  • Couch is an embarrassment to Italians send the fuc#er back to Italy where the Italians could take care of him wink wink.

  • He was going great until he said social security would fall off a cliff if it wasn't for undocumented workers.
    Social security would have money from here to eternity if they took the cap off. Right now the top earners only pay social security taxes on the first $133,000.00 of their income. After that they pay zero in social security taxes. People who make their money off of dividends and rental income pay zero into social security.

    Here is a link showing the cap of $133,000.00.

    In other words rich people don't pay into social security at the same rate as average Americans, if the rich pay at all. If the rich paid their fair share the program would be solvent, and average Americans would be paying a smaller percentage of their income. Another example of the wealthy not paying their fair share of taxes.

  • there is nothing saying we have to let any one into this country who want to abuse our system or destroy this country

  • Immigrants of the statue era were only likely to be public charges if they couldn't or wouldn't work. People came into communities that helped people out a little, and an economy that had lots of jobs. Today with wage suppression, lots of good workers do not have good jobs.

  • Maybe Trump will replace the plaque below the statue with: "Give me your white, your rich, your entitled masses yearning to live tax free, the superior treasure of your teeming shore. Send these, the fortunate, suntanned to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden Tower door!"
