Fox News Sunday’s host Chris Wallace had Jeh Johnson on their show. Jeh is the former DHS Secretary under the Obama administration. When asked about the pictures from 2014 of children in cages by themselves he admits they expanded family detention and in some cases they jailed children by themselves.
And so we expanded family detention. We had then 34,000 beds for family detention. Only 95 of 34,000 equipped to deal with families. And so we expanded it. I freely admit it was controversial. We believed it was necessary at the time. I still believe it is necessary to remain a certain capability for families
This is now a problem that the mainstream media and Hollywood doesn’t wan’t to admit that happened prior to the Trump administration taking office. Of course, we seen the Time magazine cover, the crying of journalists that continue to blame Donald Trump and the Republicans only.
Imagine being a conservative who has legitimate reservations about America and Europe’s immigration policies. Because of Trump’s racism, it now becomes impossible to make those conservative arguments in the public square without being smeared by his xenophobic rants. https://t.co/M7RoavX8jm

When Trump claimed that Dems are making him separate families at the border, a reporter responded, “That’s your own policy. Why do you keep lying about it, sir?” Later, another reporter said “that’s not true, sir. That’s not true…” https://t.co/ixZsXUNVUx
