Democratic Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar apparently didn’t get the memo that he wasn’t supposed to be talking about the Obama administration when the Democrats have been trying to blame President Donald Trump for ‘separating children’ and keeping them in centers until they can be reunited with parents.
Cuellar appeared on CNN for an interview with Fredericka Whitfield.
But he went off script and ended up spilling that the Obama administration had tried to cover up the child migrant crisis that they themselves had created.
When Whitfield asked him about the problem of holding children under Obama, he didn’t hold back.
“It was kept very quiet under the Obama Administration. There were large numbers of people coming in. The Obama administration was trying to keep this quiet,” Cuellar said.
Whitfield showed a picture of two little boys held in what looks like a dog kennel-like cage that went viral earlier in the month because liberals thought it was Trump, but it was from the Obama administration in 2014, when Central Americans were flooding the border.
As Cuellar noted, they were flooding the border with children because of the Obama administration policy that led them to believe that it would enhance their ability to stay in the country. Cuellar said he was behind releasing photos at the time of the problem.
He said that while they still see the number not all of the children media believes to be “separated from parents” actually are, that a lot of them coming alone.
“Keep in mind that under the law, you can separate a child if that person, the adult, is not the real parent or the custodian because sometimes we see situations where they’ll bring a child because they know of the policy that we have over here with children.”
He also noted that children can be separated from the parents when the adults are being prosecuted, a point that is often the case, yet media leaves out. Do they want them to keep the kids locked up? What do they suppose the options to be?
Cuellar also suggested that criminal adult illegal aliens immigrants have previously taken advantage of the Obama policies.
Cuellar is definitely going to be on the liberals’ bad list for finking this all out.
And to add to all that, not only did Obama separate kids and keep them in cages, but he also turned them over to human traffickers.
It’s actually gotten better under Trump without the cages that existed by the overflow in 2014 and with scrutinizing more carefully to whom the children are ultimately released.
