Failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams gave the Democrat response to President Trump's State of the Union Address Tuesday night. She unsurprisingly focused on race, falsely proclaimed Republicans want to suppress the vote and oddly claimed President Trump's economic policies hurt the middle class.

During her remarks about immigration, Abrams conveniently gave credit to President Barack Obama for "humane" policies. 

But it was the Obama administration that put unaccompanied minors in cages while they were held in overcrowded detention centers. 

From 2014:

According to sources on the ground in Nogales, who have asked to remain anonymous for fear of losing their jobs, 1000 OTM (other than Mexican) unaccompanied juveniles from Central America are already being sheltered in a warehouse and Border Patrol agents are expecting 2000 children by the end of next week. Estimates show overall 60,000 unaccompanied juveniles will illegally cross into the United States this year.

"It's just chain-link cells so we have aliens sleeping all over the floor and they told us to probably expect another thousand over the next week, week and a half," another Border Patrol agent tells Townhall. "We have these huge chain link cages, 20-feet tall with razor wire around them, this is inside a warehouse. They are probably 50 by 100 [feet] and there's probably 10 or 11 of these big cages like that and so there's probably 100-200 aliens in each cell, or cage and there's just park benches right down the middle, two rows of park benches and then they give them these little rubber mats, a little foam pad to lay on. We don't have enough blankets so they're issuing out those foil blankets, it's like a piece of tin foil and that's all they get. There are so many people crammed. The smell is just horrendous, horrendous."

As a reminder, Abrams believes illegal aliens should be allowed to vote in U.S. elections.
