Where is the outrage! We have thousands of American children that have no place to live. They go hungry night and night. Don’t tell me how bad I should feel about a child that was brought here illegally and is given food and shelter. Sick of the fake outrage.

Some of them aren’t “families”. Where do criminals keep kids? Back up to Clinton, Bush and Obama and learn the facts. Stop distorting the truth. It’s old.

My thoughts are we can’t even take care of our own kids so let’s bring more in illegally just to add to the mess we already got come on ! Common sense want to come to America do it the right way

Can you please report it correctly? This is NOT a Trump policy. CLINTON signed this into law. His liberal judges upheld it. Every president since has to uphold the law. Rather tired of the spin.

It's illegal plain and simple follow the laws we have in place they are in place for a reason.

Where was the outcry when Obama did this from 2009-2017 oh but now IG Report is out? Now trying to cover their butts. Blame it on Congress and Democrats

He's doing what the every President since Reagan has not done...forcing Congress to create comprehensive reform and fund his wall...keep the pressure on those Democrats in Congress KHOU...Excellent Job...another 10 articles today should help the President get his way, he's the Masta...and you his pawn...

Where is the outrage for the infantcide of abortion separating missions of children from a right to life at all?

Not “Trumps” practice... he’s following the law signed by Clinton in 97, just like Clinton, W, and Obama did. But NOW it’s BAD?

Clinton Bush and Obama did exactly the same thing that’s going on now and actually put them in cages. This is a political out rage against Trump and from the rhinos.

Why does the news stations believe anyone cares what these women have to say?? They each had their opportunity to do something about this subject when their husbands were in office and didnt...

CRAZY WOMEN.....Y'ALLS HUBBYS SUPPORTED THIS!!!! OBAMA, CLINTON AND BUSH.....GET A GRIP!!!

All four former First Ladies’ husbands did the same crap if not worse. Hypocritical!

Hillary Clinton is a humanitarian crisis all by herself.

Remember this picture the media tried spinning

Gross.

I disagree.

Yeah, right.

WE ❤️ TILLY! Newborn elephant at the Houston Zoo -- "35-year-old Asian elephant, Tess, gave birth to a 345-pound female without complication, and the calf began learning how to nurse within the first few hours. The calf has been named Tilly by the team who have dedicated their lives to the care, well-being, and conservation of these incredible animals. Baby elephants are quite wobbly when they're first born, so Tilly will wear a harness for a few days so the zoo’s elephant team can help her stand steady while she's nursing." ...

If Texas plays this season with the same attitude it played Missouri with, they’re in for at least a 9 win season.

Who cares

What type of bag?

Saw it in Houston
