The way immigrants are treated in detention centers is absolutely shameful. It's like having Abu-Ghraib or Gitmo on U.S. soil. Disgraceful!

The way native-born and legal immigrant American citizens are treated in this country is what's "absolutely shameful." Our children are murdered every day by illegals, many of whom have been deported multiple times. Where's your pity for parents of this little girl?

Her life could have been saved if our "government" had put her murderer into one of the detention centers you decry.

Also they are not "immigrants," they are illegal immigrants or illegal aliens. Stop the dishonest terminology please!

Good cartoon, the finger is clearly aimed at the native-born law-abiding tax-paying American citizens who pick up the tab for the masses of poor people that Mexico doesn't care about or want.

Isn't it time Carlos Slim Helou, THE RICHEST MAN IN THE WORLD, found out what it was like to fill out a tax form?
