Trump Turns Away Hurricane Dorian Evacuees


>>Evacuees from the Bahamas have been stranded
by the, right now, it’s actually unclear who they’ve been stranded by, because they were
told by a ferry, that was supposed to bring them to Florida, that they would not be allowed
into the United States unless they had US visas. Now, the individuals who worked at this ferry,
said that they received this notice from US Border Patrol. However, US Border Patrol is saying, no, no,
no, no, no, we didn’t give them that kind of message. We didn’t give them that kind of note. Now, a local investigative reporter from Florida
spoke to these evacuees to get a sense of what’s going on, and I wanna go to this video,
which features, unfortunately, an evacuee with a young daughter, trying to get to Florida,
and he was told that he needed to disembark from the ferry, because he did not have a
US visa. Take a look.>>They just got a call from CBP, and CBP
told them that everyone that doesn’t have a US visa, and traveling on police record,
it has to come off.>>And normally, you can travel, right, with
the police record.>>Yeah, normally, you can use police record,
by way of airplane, at least, yeah.>>So you have to take your baby off?>>Yes, I have to take her off, yeah.>>And how do you feel?>>At the last minute like this, it’s kind
of disappointing, because I’m watching my daughter’s cry, but it is what it is.>>So the journalist who broke this story,
as I mentioned earlier, is a local reporter from Miami, and the man that you heard from,
is Renard Oliver, and he’s explaining what he went through. As many as a hundred evacuees were left stranded
in the Bahamas, as a result of this strange policy change, which again, the Trump Administration
is claiming. They didn’t change any policies, but we’ll
find out in just a second with the reality is, US Customs and Border Patrol officials
in Florida blamed the ferry company for ordering certain evacuees off the boat. A CBP official said, they would have processed
those evacuees in Florida just like they did with 1,500 Dorian survivors from a cruise
ship that arrived on Saturday. According to Customs and Border Patrol, or
I should say Customs and Border Protection guidelines, Bahamian citizens traveling from
the Bahamas do not usually require a US visa, as long as they have a clean police record,
and are only planing to visit for short time. But I actually wanna to skip ahead to some
of Donald Trump statements about these evacuees, because, apparently, Trump said that he is
concerned about very bad people, attempting to come into the United States through the
Bahamas, Trump added, further confusion by indicating that he believed evacuees fleeing
the humanitarian disaster, including very bad people. We have to be very careful, he says, everyone
needs totally proper documentation. I don’t want to allow people who weren’t supposed
to be in the Bahamas to come into the United States, including some very bad people. So it appears that this was an order from
the Trump Administration, but they’re not owning up to it, because of how terrible it
looks as these people are trying to find safety from this hurricane ravaged part of the Bahamas.>>Also, when you are in a time of peril,
or in a time of emergency, the last thing you’re thinking about is documentation, and
papers, and. I mean, Renaldo Oliver and his daughter was
very calm.>>Yeah.>>And in spite of a life threatening situation,
that to me, I, if I was in that situation, Anna and Alonzo, I don’t know how I would
have behaved. But I think it goes more over, same thing
would happen with Katrina. And we need to support people who need the
help with the United States, and we have the resources to give them that. Sure, there are possibly very bad people. They’re very bad people that are citizens
of our country.>>Definitely.>>So-
>>That people in government right now->>Exactly.>>Including the very bad person who claims
that other people are very bad people.>>So it’s in these moments that, I can be
more nuanced than that, we need to do what we can to help these people, because I think
that’s just what as humans is required of us.>>Well, nobody say that personally. I appreciate your nuance, because I don’t
have it. These are horrible people and they’re cowards.>>Yes.>>Okay, they’re cowards. If you’re gonna come up with this policy,
and say that you’re not gonna let these people of color in, and let’s be honest->>Mm-hm.>>These are people of color. He was so ready to throw money at Florida,
in Alabama, when they were gonna get hit by a hurricane. Now, granted, they’re American states, but
still, there were a lot of white people who voted for him there, and he was ready to just
open the wallet and pour out money. These people, what are you saying, you’re
a criminal, or you’re a terrorist. And you’re like, I’m gonna go to the Bahamas,
which got ravaged by a hurricane. Then, I’m gonna use that to sneak into the
United Sates. No, nobody’s thinking like that. You can’t plan ahead like that. And they said you have to have a clean police
record. That’s the other thing. So if you have your ID, whatever it may be,
passport, or whatever, and you have a clean police record, then, you’re welcome to come
into the country. And also, the cowardice part, is to say, it
was the the ferry operators, like the ferry’s just gonna say, hey, wait a minute, let’s
do some checking. No, you know it wasn’t the ferry operators. The captain of the ferry didn’t suddenly say,
hey, throw these people off. They had to have been told by some government
person or some government agency. So if you’re going to be that, if you’d like
you to describe, and if you’re gonna be that horrible person, own it.>>Own it, exactly.>>Don’t be a coward. Say, hey, I’m stopping these people. It was my decision. The buck stops here. Whatever clique you wanna use, but, no, I
have no respect for this. It’s horrible, and it’s a horrible thing to
do, like you said, people at their most vulnerable. This guy doesn’t have anything to go back
to. This guy’s not a criminal sneaking his daughters
into the country. Guy’s trying to Save his family.>>As many as 45 people have already been
reported dead in the Bahamas, but the death toll is definitely going to climb hundreds
of individuals are still missing. The damage from Hurricane Dorian was so severe,
that 70,000 people have been left homeless as a result, and so, to hear this kind of
response, and this kind of reaction from someone like Donald Trump, and it’s very similar to
what he says, about, let’s say, the migrant caravans. There are Muslim terrorists who are trying
to come into the country through this migrant caravans. Of course, there was no evidence of that. It was a completely unfounded claim. And he does it to stoke fear and tension toward
the others, right, be afraid, be afraid of people from other countries who happen to
have skin color that’s different than yours. Now, if there was a hurricane disaster in
Norway, as he likes to say, would he treat it differently? I would think so. So this is just, we should be embarrassed,
like this kind of stuff is embarrassing.>>Not only that, and it’s funny you mentioned
the migrant caravan, which mysteriously always goes away the day after the election.>>Right, right.>>Right, as soon as the elections are gone
to migrant caravan goes away. But the other thing about this, this is really
sad for the United States. Because we were the country that helped people. We were the country that saved people. And I don’t care what you say, whether it
was our job to do it, or whatever. But the world knew that the United States
had your back. And in numerous disasters like this, all around
the world, we had the technology, we had the people, we did whatever, we would send our
military, and we would save people, forget about the politics, and all that. They’re humans and rehab weirdest rich country. We had the resources, and people, we don’t,
yes, we do. We have the resources to help the people in
the Bahamas. Like they said, like the cruise ship, right
away, they were like, hey, we know how, and I work on cruise ships. Let me tell you, nobody can feed and move
people as fast as cruise ship. Honestly, this is the business they’re in. They get 3,000 people on and off a ship in
a few hours, like they know how to do it, and when as a disaster, they’re like, we’ll
do it. And all the government has to say, okay, go
do it, we’ll pay you, just go do it, let’s get it done. They could help these people. And again, it’s sad, as an American, cuz we’re
Americans, even though they don’t think we’re proper Americans, we are. And it’s sad that we’re not that country anymore,
because we’re supposed to be, and we’re capable of being that country.>>And as we know, when Trump wants funding
for something, like his border wall, he has no problem re-appropriating funds, even from
the military, for construction of the border wall. But when it comes to showing a little humanity,
and taking care of fellow human beings, he changes his tune. It’s all about me, me, me. Everything that he wants to do at the border,
is all about his reelection campaign. It’s not about helping anyone in America,
it’s not about saving resources, it’s all about his own selfish, greedy endeavors.

    America obviously hates the rest of the worldd, so why doesn't US skip all this bureaucracy and go straight to invading and bombing every other nation? We all know that's what America ultimately wants to do.

  • Klaus Menendez

    we were never the country of helping people. We are a country where the rich stay rich through any means necessary without being disemboweled by their fellow humans

  • High Desert Surface Prep

    OF COURSE its all about the color. He is the biggest racist of my lifetime. His good white christian base deserves exactly as they give, bunch of cowards, zero respect, hope his resorts blow away

  • Mark Gorenshtein

    LIES! FAKE NEWS TREASON! Wear nice panties on election night Ana.. I will be ripping them off when Trump wins AGAIN and you and the rest of your TYT co-host scum are officially labeled Enemies of the State! KAG!

  • FitTallGayBlond

    In 1973 the majority of people in Bahamas voted to separate from the British Monarchy & be a fully independent country. Part of being a fully independent country is that you are responsible for handling any notional emergency yourself.

  • Klaus Menendez

    nakaelena we only make social progress when the rich are afraid of the rest of the population or if it benefits them in some way

  • FitTallGayBlond

    Why should our tax dollars be spent on helping these people and rebuilding Bahamas? When these are not Americans and we have no obligation to do so. US tax dollars should be spent on America first!!!! Bahamas is NOT a US territory!!!!

  • Cynthia Hawkins

    This is a relatively small number of people, Bahamian civilians…with families…wearing the clothes they stood up in, carrying their children in their arms, after having their homes and lives torn out from under them by a natural disaster. They present no 'threats' to our national security. Hardly some kind of invasion. I am sickened and appalled by these hateful, racist comments. Never freaking mind it was a hurricane; a natural disaster these people did not 'plan' or 'plot'. BTW in Nazi Germany they loved asking 'vere are your paperss? Excuse me while I barf.

  • Cheryl

    And all the money Trump stole from FEMA 2 days before the hurricane was scheduled. God, what a lowlife. Human life be damned, money be God.

  • barbie99

    If they can document who they are; therefore prove that they are Bahamian people, and that they are not criminals, then they are allowed in; perfectly reasonable. Do you want Haiti to move in? Most of those people destroyed by the hurricane were Haitians. The Bahamians took in their own, within the other islands of the Bahamas; and are only sending us those which they themselves do not want. Even the people of the Bahamas said; that they did not like having to live with the Haitians! Pay attention or be deceived! Listen to what the Bahamian people are saying about the Haitian immigrants! When Haiti had their massive and destructive earthquake; did we go over and start bringing them to this nation? Absolutely not!! We went and helped them to recover! Trump knows what he is doing!

    Matthew 7 : 24 – 27 (KJV) 24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

    Jeremiah 25 : 31 – 35 (KJV) 31 A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth; for the Lord hath a controversy with the nations, he will plead with all flesh; {he will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the Lord}. 32 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and {{a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth}}. 33 {And the (slain of the Lord) shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth}: they (shall not) {be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground}. 34 Howl, ye shepherds, and cry; and wallow yourselves in the ashes, ye principal of the flock: for the days of your slaughter and of your dispersions are accomplished; and ye shall fall like a pleasant vessel. 35 And the shepherds shall have no way to flee, nor the principal of the flock to escape.

    Jeremiah 51 : 42 – 44 (KJV) 42 The {{sea is come up upon Babylon: she is covered with the multitude of the waves thereof}}. 43 Her cities are a desolation, a dry land, and a wilderness, a land wherein no man dwelleth, neither doth any son of man pass thereby. 44 And {I will punish Bel in Babylon}, and I will bring forth out of his mouth that which he hath swallowed up: and the nations shall not flow together any more unto him: yea, the wall of Babylon shall fall.

    I think we all know if they were from Norway there would be no issue. That is just disgusting, these people just lost everything. No one believes it was the ferry. What a POS Trump is. I'm just waiting for him to use the term "infested" for the Bahamas next if he hasn't already.

  • gb1701

    I've been saying this since the first day Trump started his Alabama obsession during and after the Bahamas got hit. What was the main factor for him to worry more about a place that never was hit and was never going to be versus one that actually was? Then when the pictures can out of the inhabitants of the Bahamas and you compared them to the typical white Alabamian Bumpity-Bump who is Trump's base the answer was obvious.

  • ElusvOptmst1

    Trump is a dirty bastard. Karma will get his ass one day. He is the devil. These people need help this is not a joke. If they were white Europeans they would be here asap. Disgusting racist pig #45 is. I hate his guts. Vote these GOP monsters out of the White House.

  • duanchamp1988

    Why do everyone wants to come here like we're there saviors or something….couldn't they go to one of the other islands around there? Sick of my tax money going to everyone else. Already taking more than half my check.

  • Kay Bergstrom

    When you see the total piles of broken homes and lives, you can imagine that many people can't find their homes, let alone their visa's. There is nothing there but disaster.

  • Harold Briggs

  • willie williams

    Trump is a coward and Putin's man in America and the Lord shall have his day and way with Trump, the repugs and some whites are just disgusting and nasty, totally sad and vile!!!!!!!!!

  • bundles1978

    While I deplore this incident, CBP is correct in this matter. police record holders can only travel by air when they pre clear customs in The Bahamas at a Bahamian based US customs processing terminal. because we pre clear US immigration in Nassau, we are allowed to use a police record. this has been the law since we had pre clearance available to us. that is not to say they couldn't have bent the rules for people who were going to stay with their US based family legally, with the right papers. this should have been common knowledge for the ferry operator. the only reason we are allowed to use a police record is because the immigration officer in Nassau will have the means to check your records on the spot if needed.

  • Janice Landers

    the deaths are on your hands trump.please vote him out.let the people know that it is not all american that people feel this way.

  • Serge Monfort

    Honestly, Trump had a political softball and is too blinded by his racism. He could have given shelter to refugees and gained so much support from independents and the African American community…but he couldn't do wrong by his white supremacists supporters.

  • F R

    I heard an army of 50 ft tall women are coming after Trump. I'm hoping there is live coverage. I heard these women are coming after him and his enablers and that they plan to rip their heads off and throw their bodies into the ocean. I'm so excited! I'm making popcorn now.

  • M grimble

    "America is the country that helps people" er when exactly?

    America literally sent a ship of Jewish people back to Germany in 1939. Your history is littered with examples of doing exactly the wrong thing. I'm not saying your alone many countrys have records just as bad, but don't believe the Bs.

  • Kelli Votel

    None of that documentation could have blown away, floated away, or been buried in the rubble. Sure! Ask them to bring their fairy godmothers too!

  • GX328382

    LEGAL US Citizens ONLY what part of that do you not get, sucks for what happened but the law is the law don't like it then change it otherwise STFU and get in line

  • Laura Stack

    There are parts of the Bahamas that were untouched. There are nasty gangs there and tourists are warned about crime. Should we take everyone in just bc there is a hurricane? Many Americans lost everything in these storms also. We should take care of our own. We can send supplies etc nut taking in people that will commit crimes is nuts. I won't bother listening to your tirade.

  • Commons II

    In other words, They are being vetted before they're allowed to enter? So what?
    The U.S is sending them money and all kinds of relief aid too.
    Do a video about it and title it "Trump pays the Bahamas to keep brown people away from U.S citizens"

  • Blake still in the game

    Who still shocked about Trump fat orange corrupt, coward, racist Ass. Nothing Mr Buffalo butt do ,that shocks me anymore

  • bong Scott

    What is the embarrassing part is the fact it only seems that America pays for all the disaster recovery around the world how come the world don't put in ???????watch the look.

  • VeryStableGenius

    Why USA ? is USA the only country in the world ? why not Mexico or Brasil ?
    All the broken people want to come to the USA, soon all you will have in the us are broken up uneducated brown people, this is ridiculous !

  • Gustavo Vega

    Man this channel is unhinged.. "someone must have given the order" "trump probably did it" " keep brown people away" "we should be ashamed" I feel like Im watching Alex Jones

  • DeepShadedGlassesGuy

    I'm disgusted but not surprised.
    Just when you think this administration can't go lower.
    And save your breath about "hurr you don't know it was the administration"
    Bro get outta my face. The ferry company had zero reason to suddenly kick off these passengers.
    If you support this, own the fact that you're a horrid piece of shit human being.

  • TYRONE JONES

    Shame on us Americans. I can not believe we turn our back on the destitutes that embark the ship. I am being told the Haitians that are there are in fear and are being traumatized by the Bahamian government. The Mudd and Peas settlements has many unclaimed bodies left by the Bahamian government to rot.

  • 4eva evolving

    This/these are the type of reaction(s) that should've BEEN inevitably anticipated by the hypocritical bigotry commited by the greedy meddling savagery OF WHITES who's ancestry dates back to THEM policing & trying to save the 🌎! But it didn't , OF course EVERYONE wants to come to amerikkka, ARE we NOT afterall the Champion of the NEW 🌎! WE'LL eventually become overwhelmed simply b/c the entire 🌎 👀's the U.S. as a refuge….. If we're closing our borders THEN we must MIND OUR OWN affairs @ 🏡, & STAY out of other peoples shit , NOT letting citizens of sovereign countries take refuge HERE esp when they've been traumatized speaks deafining volumes about our government/leaders ,let THIS video be proof ( along with the border crisis ) THAT " amerikkkan WHITES who CURRENTLY hold the reigns of power " dont give 2 fucccccs about YALL! But will pilfer your natural resources & enforce tariffs/sanctions on a country? 🤔🤦😘🤷

  • Brandon 203

    I don’t want anybody with a extensive criminal background setting foot in the US. If they were drug dealers or rapists in the Bahamas they will be drug dealers and rapists here. Sorry, but that’s a fact

  • Thomas Malloy

    Wow I thought that America’s government was better than this ? I don’t really blame 45 I blame Congress the law makers that sit by and let this stuff go on. They should all firer themselves such cowards 😡

  • Ryan Anderson

    Only a monster and coward would just send them back and let them die. Trump needs to go now. I'm beyond sick of him and his people.

  • Glen Johnson

    Just as we feared Trump's immigration policy has impacted one of the survivors in the most awful way. A 12yr old kid was separated from her godmother when she was being evacuated to Miami. She has a aunt there but of course the immigration officials said she was NOT traveling with her parents, who I think DIED during the damn storm and so she is now placed in some kids shelter by Home Land Social Services or whatever it's called. So I FINALLY get a close up of who these "bad people" Trump was trying to avoid not coming to the United States.
    Keep in mind, this 12yr old kid has no doubt traveled to the US a ton of times for vacation purposed.

  • Howard McTroy

    It's a fallacy to suggest that you must let refugees into your country simply because they're refugees or else you don't care about them and want them to die. The U.S. has already done so much in response to the emergency in the Bahamas and should continue to do more. Unfortunately things like this will still happen, and they're not without precedent.

    And if you think the possibility of dangerous individuals entering a society through refugee migration is an entirely illusory concern, then I advise you to look up the Mariel Boatlift.

  • Keith Wood

    I'm curious, do any Americans remember what happened on 9/11 to all those passengers that were in the air after terrorist attack & they all diverted to Newfoundland, Canada.
    I don't remember anyone being turned away, correct me if I'm wrong, shame on the US…
