While watching the Democrat media complex's coverage of the ongoing crisis at the southern border with Mexico, one is likely get the perception that the problem started under President Trump and the way he's handling it is unprecedented, racist and fueled by xenophobia.
But the truth is, this crisis started in 2014 when President Barack Obama ran the White House. At Townhall, we've been reporting on it for years.
"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."
To prove this point, Campus Reform's Cabot Phillips caught up with students to ask about President Obama's statements on the issue. A number of them called his comments "white nationalist" speech and then admitted they thought the statements were made by President Trump.
Meanwhile, Democrats on Capitol Hill have repeatedly used photos from the Obama era to falsely go after President Trump.
Democrats on the House Oversight Committee tweeted a photo of children in cages in an attempt politicize the border crisis, but there was only one problem: the photo was taken during the Obama-Biden administration! pic.twitter.com/gq0qcAbSwt— Trump War Room (@TrumpWarRoom) July 11, 2019
After Dems denied the #BorderCrisis for months, Nadler today claims there's "child abuse" & "negligent homicide & systematic torture of children at the border.” It's incredible Dems oppose efforts to end the crisis, then misrepresent it & blame shift when @POTUS offers solutions. pic.twitter.com/jWU4l8kSkj— Rep.
