“Chain link barriers, partitions, fences, cages, whatever you want to call them, were not invented on January 20, 2017, OK?” – OBAMA’S DHS SECRETARY JEH JOHNSON
The Obama-Biden Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson just dropped a bomb on Democrats.
While speaking at the Aspen Institute, Johnson just defended putting children in cages. Oops!
Johnson was shown the photo below from 2014 where there were the so-called ‘cages’ that the left continues to try and claim are Trump’s fault.
He explained why they needed ‘cages’ destroying the left’s narrative that suddenly Trump decided to cage children:
“The photograph you’re referring to was a facility in Arizona. I recognize the photo because Governor Brewer was with me and it was during the spike. We had a lot of unaccompanied kids, we had a lot of family units and under the law, once they’re apprehended by the Border Patrol, within 72-hours we have to transfer unaccompanied children to HHS and HHS then puts them in a shelter and find placement for them somewhere in the United States. But during that 72 hour period, when you have something that is a multiple, like four times of what you’re accustomed to in the existing infrastructure, you’ve got to find places quickly to put kids.”
“You can’t just dump seven-year-old kids on the streets of McAllen or El Paso. And so these facilities were erected and that one I think was a large warehouse and they put those chain link partitions up so you could segregate young women from young men, kids from adults until they were either released or transferred to HHS.”
Trump supporters need to push back on this false narrative.
