Immigration Courts: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)

America’s dysfunctional immigration court system forces many children to appear in court alone. That’s as ridiculous in real life as it would be on a courtroom television show.

    What ya'll think about his Johnny Depp abuse comments? I've read just about everything I can find related to the whole Depp-Heard abuse issue and subsequent divorce and from what I can tell, she cut off his finger, requiring it to be surgically reattached. There is tons of evidence through texts, hospital visits and witnesses that Heard was incredibly abusive and that Depp was scared of her very early on. It seems very obvious to me that Heard is an incredibly manipulative and aggressive person, someone who is very violent herself while being completely willing to lie and manipulate in order to falsify and then cash in on her false identity as a victim. What ya'll think?

    Again I will remind the world. John oliver is fine with the mothers of the kids at the end of this show, killing their kids in the womb if they had chosen to. Satan must be soo damned proud of his hero oliver.

    How is domestic violence a reason for asylum? They are right. Instead of moving countries try another city. That snipet says she was assaulted at gunpoint in her home town! She went back to where the threat was! Moving countries by passing through at least one other country to get to america = totally doable. Moving even one city over to escape the people you are afraid of = too hard

    Yeah those percentages of deportation in various cites is troubling... all of those should be 100%. And the horrible things that happened to those people after they got sent away weren't our doing or our fault. They shouldn't have come here in the first place. And its good that they got horrible things happened to them. They broke the law by illegally entering the US and that was their punishment. Its good when bad things happen to bad people. The whole world's problems aren't our problems and there is no excuse for illegally entering a country without it's permission. The law is the law. Why can't you libtards get this?

    Ah, Covfefe we hardly knew you. Remember when we got two solid years of jokes out of one misspelling by a VICE president? Incidently COV means confirmation of victory and means you "sealed the deal" sexually with whoever you were seen leaving with by your dbag friends who want to high five with you about your sex life and then smell their own fingers afterwards... and Fefe (or fifi... it's not in the dictionary so we'll never know) is a rolled up gym sock you have sex with when you are in prison but are not busy having sex with a stronger more dangerous inmate. So... yeah, confirmation of victory with a rolled up gymsock... despite the consant negative press, Donald Trump made it with his gold toed socks... that was the true meaning of covfefe.

    I think to solve this illegal immigration problem we should demand a safe zone (town) be put just inside the border of any country we do any business with, offer aid too, or outright let survive to house all their immigrants sneaking out of their country to come here that these countries pay for out of our aid package. There should be stiff penalties for anyone we send back who is harmed and I am talking American soldiers guarding those towns after one death. We cannot handle the brunt of the world's problems, or the entire citizenry of the world, but we shouldn't leave these people to be butchered either. Not to mention once there is a town inside these corrupt countries that actually works democratically it will show the rest of the country how much better the living is inside a democratic nation and maybe the idea will grow helping stave off many problems in other countries. We get rid of the illegals here, they get asylum there, and democracy spreads. Its a win win win if you ask me. Oh and one final thing those children in court should have their parents there with them even though as citizens of another country they do not have the same rights as an American citizen there still should be some checks and balances to this mess. Its not like as Americans we can go to any country in the world and expect the same set of rights we receive here or even the same rights that a citizen of that country is afforded. Just go to another country and sign up for healthcare anywhere in Europe.

    Heres Something to think on. Neither the Left nor the Right will want to reform Immigration Courts. This is because the Backlog will likely basically mean a case will never actually get dealt with and the delays make it seem like you've done something. Delays slow and somewhat prevents people from being deported.
