Obama’s Child Detention Photos You Have Not Seen

In 2014, journalists were given a media tour of two Obama administration detention facilities.

In 2014, journalists were given a media tour of two Barack Obama administration detention facilities in Brownsville, Texas, and Nogales, Arizona. During that tour, pool photographers Eric Gay and Ross Franklin documented images of minors in holding facilities.

One of those photographs was used to create a viral social media firestorm claiming it was “children ripped from the arms of their parents by Donald Trump,” and comparing Trump to Hitler — even though the photo in question was taken when Obama was in charge.

There were no outrageous claims of “children ripped from the arms of their parents by Barack Obama!”

Clearly, Democrat leaders don’t care about “the children” unless they can be used as fodder to advance their statist political agenda — in this case, establishing open borders to ensure future voters.
