Trump-haters quickly backpedal following Obama-era photo confusion
Liberals shared a photo over the weekend of illegal immigrant children sleeping inside a detention facility – evidence, they claimed, of President Trump’s cruel separation of families.
The problem was the photo was taken during President Obama’s rein, amid the immigrant influx that dominated a majority of his second term.
Following a USA Today report claiming 1,475 migrant children were “lost” by the federal government, numerous leftists, including journalists, tweeted out the picture claiming it showed the “first photos of separated migrant children.”
Black Lives Matter leader Shaun King was among the first to be fooled by the 2014 photo, even tweeting a link that contained “2014” in the URL.
I saw this photo floating around and didn’t know if it was real.
