The left’s latest fundraising outrage love-affair is caged children at the border (again). They are organizing rallies (fundraising) and yelling to anyone who will listen about “concentration camps.” But a former ICE agent says they were built by the Obama Administration
Keep in mind; we’re using the language of the left, so if these are concentration camps, Obama built them.
“I’ve been to that facility, where they talk about cages. That facility was built under President Obama under (Homeland Security) Secretary Jeh Johnson. I was there because I was there when it was built,” said Thomas Homan, who was Obama’s executive associate director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement for nearly four years.
If you missed it, circa 2014/2015 Mr. Obama was doing two things. First, he was advocating border policy nearly identical to what has outraged Democrats during the Trump administration. Second, he “phone and penned” DACA rules changes that encouraged the problem for which the cages were probably constructed.
So, the only reason children are being detained at the border “in cages Obama built” is because Democrat policy catalyzed the use of children by potential terrorists, drug cartel’s and human traffickers to try and sneak into the country.
Kids who arrive with adults who are their legitimate family members are no longer separated from them – they used to be under Obama. Kids that are trafficked as decoys by criminals are identified and separated from them.
Those kids end up in Obama’s “concentration camps.”
The alternative is to leave the child in the custody and control of their gang member/drug trafficking kidnapper. Individuals who never would have tried to get through if not for Obama and Democrat border policy.
When someone asks you about them, remember that no matter what the left calls them, they are detention facilities. Obama built them. And he then enacted policies to ensure they are filled with kids who had been abducted and trafficked by criminals.
A problem about which you’d have never heard a cross word Donald Trump was not the president.
Human traffickers, drug cartels, gang members, and even terrorists wouldn’t be stealing kids to cross the border, and all you would hear about is the generous aid and open embrace of the United States to gangs and killers using other people’s kids to spread drugs and violence into our neighborhoods.
