Double Standard: Media Refuses to Show Photos of Obama’s Facilities for Illegal Aliens

5

The media and political class become more and more outraged over the Trump administration’s decision to detain and prosecute immigrants illegally crossing the border, the Daily Caller reports.

Lost in the debate is any acknowledgement that President Obama’s administration also used detention facilities. Current U.S. immigration laws, when enforced, have the consequence of temporarily separating families that arrive with children into separate detention facilities in order to prosecute the adults. The policy of prosecuting immigrants for crossing the border illegally has been in place for multiple administrations. The Obama administration prosecuted half a million illegal immigrants and similarly separated families in the process. So did the Bush administration. Personal accounts from immigration lawyers tell a tale of Obama being equally concerned about unaccompanied minors traveling to the border and wanting to create a deterrent.

Photos of border detention facilities from the Obama-era, taken during 2014, look nearly identical to the ones taken during the Trump era.

  1. Matzav- What difference does it make if Obama did the same thing? If it’s wrong – it’s wrong.
    If the Editors agree with the current polices, say it straight – We agree with President Trump’s current policy regarding immigrant children and we applaud Obama for doing it first and Pres Trump for continuing it.
    If you disagree and think that it is wrong then say that it was wrong when Pres Obama did it and it is wrong now that Pres Trump is doing it. Then ask the readership to work to change it.
