During Tuesday’s Democratic presidential debate, candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren said she would decriminalize illegal immigration, adding that there are “cages of babies” at the U.S.-Mexico border, something she claims to have witnessed with her own eyes.
“What we can’t do is not live our values,” Warren said. “I’ve been down to the border, I have seen the mothers, I have seen the cages of babies. We must be a country that every day lives our values. And that means we cannot make it a crime when somebody comes here.”
Illegal immigration at the Southern border has shot up a great deal in recent months, leaving border agents with increasingly less room to detain migrants. The Trump administration last year enforced its zero-tolerance policy to stop illegal adults from crossing the border with minor children.
But this doesn’t remotely tell the whole story.

Child Detainment Under Obama and Prior
Breitbart reports, “The separation of adult border crossers from the children they arrive with, though, has occurred since before 2001, court records have shown, and the Obama administration used the same detention centers that are currently being used.”
“Detaining child border crossers was a policy during the Obama administration, where Breitbart Texas exclusively reported on the conditions in which unaccompanied minors were being packed into crowded cells and holding facilities,” Breitbart noted Tuesday. “Health and Human Services (HHS) centers where unaccompanied minors are often sent feature comfortable living conditions.”

Warren’s Twitter account tweeted out during Tuesday’s debate, “Rules matter. And it matters if we say our rule is to put people in cages. What we need to do is have a sane immigration system that keeps us safe, but does not criminalize mothers and babies fleeing violence and seeking refuge in America.”

Where the Proof?
Despite her claims, Warren has not been able to show any photo proof of “babies” at the border being held in cages together.
If this is happening, if there are young children and infants being housed in cages alongside each other, and Warren has seen them, where are the pics? Does she not have a smart phone capable of taking photos?
If this is happening, does not anyone in the vicinity of such a tragedy have a phone with photo capabilities to show the world?
The Democrats will go to any length to win in 2020, including lying. Expect the Democrats to get worse.
And expect the lies to get even bigger.
