    This is too real. I hate going to the ER. Been for anaphylaxis and asthma attacks, which are diagnosed by doctors and I have prescribed medications for, and they told me I might have anxiety. They literally told me my throat closed up after eating something I was allergic to because I was having a panic attack. They still gave me steroids. A bit later I was having problems with asthma and I didn't respond well to my rescue inhaler (my heart would race and I would get jittery when regularly taking it), so my doctor told me on a Saturday to go in and get steroids. The ER doc said I was having a panic attack and that it wasn't asthma, they didn't give me steroids. I went into the doctor on Monday to them being furious at the said ER and I had to go through a whole treatment thing. They had to push my insurance to get me the more expensive inhaler that wouldn't make my heart race. To be honest, it fucked with my head so bad sometimes I still don't think I have asthma and wonder if I made up the allergies.

    Finally someone talked about it. I'm a legal immigrants, came as a grad student, got a student visa, then a job an a work visa and finally a green card some years later. I was lucky to go through all these processes who are a black box and take much more time than they should to be processed. Every time I see an American talking about "get in line" it blows my mind how ignorant they are about their own immigration system. The discussion is always about legal vs illegal and it does even scratches the surface. I have many brilliant friends that had to go back to their countries after getting a job willing to sponsor a visa, but the visa was denied. Even if you have a path, there are no guarantees. Think about having a wife and kids while you work under a work visa that can literally end overnight if you are fired. You are building your life here. Honestly, looking back, I don't know how I survived the whole stress. Thanks for this video.

I am working on a short film that I am developing and I thought it would be great to leave it here and hope that someone sees and and possibly makes a tiny donation. Every little thing helps, even the 1$ ones as it helps us get traction with Indiegogo and then more people see it. The story is about three people who are being forced into a life of forensic cleaning. Have a look at the page and see if there's anything you like! Thank you everyone!

    This is all 100% true. Finding a legitimate treatment center that actually cares about helping patients is difficult. One place to start is finding a place the the FAA approves for pilots. Same for medical professionals.Those centers actually have to answer to government regulations and have a higher standard of care. You don't have to be a pilot or a doctor to be a patient.

    A new immigrant nation needs to be created. America has lost the plot. I'd love to see a new nation blossom out of these crises. Global warming will increase the need for places that welcome refugees. Also, for those who think that climate change is a hoax, a low lying tropical island paradise so they can put their money where their mouths are.

    Customs made a mistake on my i-94, (didn't even know that was that for me to know how important it is - I was focusing on my Visa and my work permit)....Only to find out that my work permit and my Visa were useless, i-94 is the big daddy. So since so many didn't know how the issue could be fix and derailing the process without knowing how to fix the 1-94, that affected my Visa and my work permit. So go figure now the money that I need to spend getting a lawyer and not to mention that life goes one while they system is broken!

    Donald Trump isn't xenophobic, you libtard. He's crime-o-phobic. How do you stop people from breaking the law by hopping the border? You build a wall and/or hire more security. While the legal system for immigration isn't perfect, It does not excuse jumping the border. We should definently make modifications to to the legal immigration system in order to make it more comprehensive for those looking to enter, but when someone circumvents that system by hopping over, hot button issues like detainment, family seperation and deportation will always be a necessary evil. Illegal immigrants knew the risk of attempting to enter the country with their kids in such a clandestine manner. It simply wouldn't be just for all those immigrants patiently waiting to come in legitimately at the southern border if we just gave a free pass to the ones who jumped over, so they must be either deported to the back of "the line" or detained. Now, in the case of detainment we can either not put the kids (who had no choice but to come with their parents) in jail with their parents who broke the law, thus seperating them, or we can allow them to stay with their parents in detainment thus imprisoning an innocent child. Pick your poison, there's no "good" option here - ICE is not to blame, though, that fault falls on the lap of those who decided to break the rules and come here in a covert, illegal fashion.

    02:36 "In essence we're doing death penalty cases in a traffic court setting" if those people just waited "in line" at the ports of entry to enter the country under the protection of border security than they wouldn't now be facing deportation back into their hostile homeland, which is why she reffered to them as "death penalty cases". While the legal system for immigration isn't perfect, It does not excuse jumping the border. We should definently make modifications to to the legal immigration system in order to make it more comprehensive for those looking to enter, but when someone circumvents that system by hopping over, hot button issues like deportation and family seperation will always be a necessary evil.

    Damnit John, ignorance is bliss and I can’t stop watching, damn you..... I came here to get a view of the left and walk away realizing how little I know about so much. Although it’s an impossible argument when you phrase it “as we view ourselves”, it can still be argued that for MOST of the “people” that are on death row, they are there for a reason. With all your hysterical references to mom in this video I’m pretty sure the people who’s mothers have had atrocities committed against them by people sitting in the chair will tell you they hope that bastard doesn’t go easy. It really is a scary thought of putting someone to death who is innocent, but is life in prison much better? Also, you strike me as a person who will respect another’s view in real life, and someone who is classy and smart enough to debate a subject without the convo descending into rants and rage, we need more people like you, the world would be a better place. P.S....I’m referring to both sides of the political spectrum, everyone loves to point the finger and no-one wants to listen anymore because they don’t want to, or care to, hear a different opinion.
