These people helped elect Trump. He wants to expand coal mining and its use to create electricity, neither of which is safe. Had Obama had the guts he would have regulated coal mining out of business. Now Trump is eliminating regulations so the incidence of disease will increase.
They vote for Trump and beg for more jobs in the coal industry. They cheer for Trump and want him to abolish Obamacare. Then they are stricken with Black Lung and wonder why they can't get any healthcare...or can't afford healthcare. Just like that old Eagles tune..."And Jesus, people bought 'em."
Yeah, Keep pumping out that Coal. Dumb Ass, now permits them to dump their coal waste into their water system.
The truly insane part is, when they do begin to suffer the inevitable effects of black lung, they apply for Medicaid, because they and their families cannot possibly afford the horrendous costs of treatment. So Trump and the Republicans are continuing to urge them to keep getting the disease, and continuing to make it harder and harder to get the medical treatment they need once they have it. Catch 22!
Cough cough cough ya gotta love trump spit
they got what they voted for!
‘Clean’ coal. Yeah, right
To read this article in the 21st century is mind boggling. So sorry for these workers and their plight.
Knuckle draggers are delusional, VOTE BLUE!
Coal mining and ignorant people killing themselfs following Trump over a cliff.
Yes immigration policies started with Trump, no one else including the laws that were started before trump...
Meet in the middle. Nothing is black or white...let's try some gray.!!!!
My God. These people came from terrible situations, trusting us to give them asylum, and they were treated as badly as what they were escaping from. I am ashamed that we treated them like this. Trump and his cohorts will answer to a higher power for this atrocity.
Trump regime must be charged with child abuse and neglect
Welcome and bienvenido to the State of Blithe!
Wow just sad
I am tired of these people
Horrible. This treatment of these refugees sounds so similar to books I have read about how the Nazi’s treated people they rounded up & incarcerated (eg, The Nightingale, Sarah’s Key, All the Light We Cannot See). It is not much different at all, including treating people like they are subhuman. Appalling and completely unacceptable!
This is disgusting to read and embarrassing that our country treats others, especially children like this.
