    Trump is enforcing Obama programs, these aren’t trumps.

    LOL, sadly not surprising you didn’t know that. Then again, the media doesn’t report it, so

    Obama separated families. Whether or not he had a program designed to do so is irrelevant. Also, Obama placed kids with human traffickers.

    Per 'Snopes':


    Did Obama Admin Build Cages That House Immigrant Children at U.S.-Mexico Border?
    While under scrutiny for treatment of migrants, the Trump administration has been shifting blame to its predecessor.


    The Obama administration, not the Trump administration, built the cages that hold many immigrant children at the U.S.-Mexico border.

    True

    So, there's that.

    That's for each individual to decide for themselves. I'm simply pointing out what they concluded...Whether you choose to believe it or not is your business.

    can you read even a little bit. yeah, of course there were cages built to house UNACCOMMANIED MINORS CAUGHT IN THIS COUNTRY before they could be vetted and something decided on what to do with them....would you have this country just let them wander around unaccompanied? did you even read the article in context where it shows every attempt was made by obama and bush to not separate KIDS WHO WERE WITH THEIR PARENTS...that has nothing to do with detaining unaccompanied minors! READ...LEARN TO FREAKING READ...quit being such a gullible senseless sheep. FROM THE ARTICLE YOU POSTED-

    As the well-being of immigrant children in U.S. detention remained a focal point of controversy surrounding the Trump administration in early summer 2019, so did attempts to deflect blame to Trump’s predecessor amid accusations of neglect and mistreatment.

    During the previous summer, the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy of separating immigrant parents from their children was so widely rejected by both political parties that even First Lady Melania Trump took the unusual step of repudiating it. In response to the backlash, U.S. President Donald Trump (falsely) pinned the blame for the child-separation policy on his predecessor, Barack Obama.

    One year later, amid an ongoing national crisis of conscience over immigrant children incarcerated in detention facilities at the U.S.-Mexico border, President Trump again attempted to pin the blame on his predecessor. During a contentious interview with Spanish-language network Telemundo, Trump wrongly stated that he had reunited families after they were separated by the Obama administration. (In fact, thousands of children were taken from their parents under the Trump administration’s 2018 zero-tolerance policy.)

    But then Trump also attempted to deflect outrage over photographs of immigrant children being kept in “cages” by asserting, “Obama built the cages. I didn’t build them. Obama built them”:

    That portion of Trump’s commentary was true. Pictures of children behind chain-link fencing were captured at a site in McAllen, Texas, that had been converted from a warehouse to an immigrant-detention facility in 2014. Social media users who defended Trump’s immigration policies also shared a 2014 photograph of Obama’s Homeland Security Secretary, Jeh Johnson, touring a facility in Nogales, Arizona, in 2014, in which the fencing could be seen surrounding migrants there as well. That picture was taken during a spike in the number of unaccompanied children fleeing violence in Central American countries.

    Non-sequitur. I'm pointing out that, according to Snopes (and others), the Obama administration kept immigrant children in cages. That's just a fact, at least according to the source. Whether you feel it was justified or not is up to you, but it doesn't alter the fact.

    I did read it. If your point is that the Obama administration locked up immigrant children in cages, then, yes, it most certainly support your point.

    bullshit. now you are deflecting like a little kid caught with his hand in the cookie jar. the post was about trump changing obama's policy about keeping kids with their parents, whenever possible. that has nothing to do with unaccompanied minors...surely even a trump voter can see the difference if he concentrates for a few days. keep us posted.

    no, lying trump voter, the point i made was that trump changed obama's policy of keeping kids and parents together whenever possible, had nothing to do with unaccompanied minors. you cannot keep an unaccompanied minor together with his parents...get it? how slow should i type that?
