In a recent interview with the media following a meeting at the White House with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, President Donald Trump finally, thankfully, pushed back against the “mainstream” media lie that his administration and, in particular, his outgoing DHS secretary, Kirstjen Nielsen, were responsible for “caging” migrant children.
POTUS told assembled media as the subject wavered, expectedly, into his immigration policies and Nielsen’s departure:
Obama separated the children, by the way. Just so you understand, President Obama separated the children. Those cages that were shown? I think they were very inappropriate. They were built by President Obama’s administration, not by Trump. President Obama had child separation. Take a look.
The press knows it, you know it, we all know it. I’m the one that stopped it. President Obama had child separation. Now, I’ll tell you something. Once you don’t have it, that’s why you see many more people coming. They’re coming like it’s a picnic because let’s go to Disneyland. We are not looking to do it. But President Obama had the law. We changed the law.
That’s absolutely true.
And what’s also true, absolutely, is that the media all know it. CNN even did a piece in 2014 showing migrant children being housed in literal cages, as the following screenshot above proves.
Now, to be fair, Obama’s administration didn’t have much choice, either. The ‘caging’ of children came in response to an influx of illegal aliens at our southwest border much like the migrant invasion POTUS Trump’s administration is now dealing with. Children were put in separate facilities as required by law thanks to a Ninth Circuit court decision in the late 1990s known as the “Flores settlement,” which was also supported by that bastion of Left-wing legal groups, the ACLU.
