Thomas Homan, the executive associate director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) under Barack Obama, says it was the previous administration that is responsible for building cages to house illegal immigrants.
The statement is a startling blow to the fabricated notion that President Trump is personally responsible for putting kids brought across the southern border in pens.
There When It Was Built
“I’ve been to that facility, where they talk about cages. That facility was built under President Obama under Secretary Jeh Johnson,” Homan told participants at a conference hosted by the Center for Immigration Studies. “I was there because I was there when it was built.”
Homan, of course, is correct. Despite the leftist narrative that these ‘inhumane’ conditions are a product of the Trump administration, it is his predecessor that initiated these facilities.
Barack’s ICE chief: Cages were Obama’s idea. Tom Homan says at @CIS_org confab, ‘I’ve been to that facility, where they talk about cages.

Message For Democrats
Homan, according to the Washington Examiner, said a Trump official had been confronted by a Democratic Chairman who demanded to know, “You still keeping kids in cages?”
“I would answer the question, ‘The kids are being housed in the same facility built under the Obama administration,’ Homan explained.

“If you want to call them cages, call them cages. But if the left wants to call them cages and the Democrats want to call them cages then they have to accept the fact that they were built and funded in FY 2015.”
Why They Use Them
The current acting Director for ICE notes that the ‘cages’ are actually “chain link dividers that keep children separate from unrelated adults.”
In other words, they exist to keep the kids safe.
Over the last couple of years, liberals have been exposed numerous times sharing images of illegal immigrant children and claiming they show disdain for their lives by this administration.
Often times, the images turn out to have been taken when Obama was President.
Photos of children at a migrant holding facility have gone viral on social media. The pictures are from 2014. They were originally posted with this azcentral article about unaccompanied migrant children who were transported to a facility in Arizona. https://t.co/2DXdszR0SU

Regardless, both administrations recognize their value, but only one is being accused of war crimes.
Media Will Ignore
Wondering if Homan’s comments will be reported by that same media? He doesn’t.
“I give facts about what’s happening on the border,” Homan said in a previous interview about why the media isn’t requesting his presence on their shows.
“I don’t think that aligns with the stories they are trying to tell.”
They lie by posting Obama-era images and claiming they’re recent. They lie by saying the cages were built by Trump. And they cover it up when someone admits the truth.

So we ALL knew this who were awake during Obama's tenure, except Joe. Sounds about right.
MY REACTION IS DISGUST,,,,, PURE DISGUST WITH THOSE WHO ARE OF THE DEMOCRAT PERSUASION.
I think they’re what the left calls “Inconvenient facts”.. if they notice them at all. Second thought… if they call them anything at all, they’d have to acknowledge they exist so… they’re just going on without them, like usual, decreeing they have all the facts they need to rule the world.. their way, with free junk and immense debt and a lack of freedom for all
Who really cares…you come here ILLEGALLY you BELONG in a cage…..PERIOD…..
To the media, since Trump was alive when they were built, that makes him guilty of building them and he should be impeached for it. Well, that’s what the MSM thinks.
i think these cages should be filled with the demon-rats, or use prison cages, either one will do.
Can’t tell Democrats the truth. They can’t figure it out. EVER.
Deport them all back to mexico regardless of age and let them wait there for their phony asylum cases to be heard!!!! I am sick to death of paying taxes I work hard for being used to make illegal aliens more comfortable while we have homeless citizens living in the streets!!!
I kinda figured we would hear something like this. That lying dirty rat is behind a lot of stuff. What a coward.
Did any of these adults or children have any safe place to sleep or eat when they were traveling across their country and Mexico to get to the US? According to what has been reported some of them had enough money to pay for smugglers to get them into our country and it was thousands of dollars. Where is this money coming from? These illegal migrant caravans seem to be a very organized movement. They had to be given water along the way and there clothes aren’t tattered and they have shoes. All of this doesn’t fit an impoverished society needing asylum.
I don’t think the media tells the truth on anything
Democrats seem to have no boundaries in cheating and lying.
The truth will always win.
If we have to have open borders would that mean Texas would expand to include everything down to Ecuador? lol
If Hillary had won we would have had wide open borders from day one and ICE disbanded. God is good.
Hamtramck, Michigan is officially the only city in America where Muslims form a majority after immigration from Bangladesh, Yemen and Bosnia. It is now welcoming Syrian refugees despite the Michigan governor wanting none in his state.
Look out! It’s coming and Europe has already learned the hard way. Try and put a Church or Synagogue in their country. Bet you won’t be able to do it! So, why are we allowing Muslims to put their Mosques in every state in our country?
Here are some actual facts about Mosques in the United States:
As of 2010, the number of mosques in the United States stood at 2,106, up 74 percent from 1,209 mosques in 2000. The states with the most mosques include New York with 257, California with 246 and Texas with 166.
Now, how many Christian churches are in the Middle East?
I dunno Detroit, Chicago, NY, LA… ain’t much american language around any of them anymore lol
European countries??? Try Michigan. Last I heard it was still in the U.S.
The European countries are finding out the hard way after allowing millions of Muslims into their countries. They will NOT assimilate into the society and will not learn the countries language. All go on welfare and the woman have a baby every year. They do nothing to help the country they are living in. Finally, they create a Muslim neighborhood and do not allow the locals to enter.
Obama and Hillary predicted that the USA would be under Sharia Law by 2024 if Hillary would have won the election. BTW Huma Abedin Hillary’s secretary, her father started the Muslim Brotherhood whom Obama is a Member of. VOTE RED and PRAY!
The best way for obama to “own” it is six ft under ! Treason is a capitol crime !
So this is Obamas legacy he wants… Then he needs to own it!!!!! Coward til the end!
How does this happen? I’ve tried to unsubscribe from many sites and it just isn’t allowed.
I have been trying to unsubscribe and it’s not possible. There is no way to contact them. They have crammed this site down our throats whether we want it or not. Reminds me of how democrats behave.
For 8 years we had a “manwoman” as 1st lady and now we have another candidate who is married to a man wanting to be POTUS.
When you have a Palestinian Congress woman who calls the POTUS a MF on TV and NOTHING is done about the remark, this country is in trouble!
Now, AOS is so stupid she doesn’t realize her total misunderstanding of world affairs and politics will get Trump re-elected in 2020. Keep it up girl! Oh, by the way, scotch on the rocks IS NOT on rocks but ice!
Built in 2015 that’s all on Obama

THESE CLOWNS GO HOME AT NIGHT AND ARE ABLE TO SLEEP – DOING WHAT THEY ARE TO THIS COUNTRY. IN A SHORT WHILE THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BREW UP A STORY -BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO MORE STUPID TOPICS LEFT- THEY HAVE ALREADY COVERED THEM AND THEY BLEW UP IN THEIR FACES. HOW CAN ANYBODY WITH ONE OUNCE OF COMMON SENSE AND RESPECTABILITY EVEN LISTEN TO EITHER OF THEM. THEY ARE LIKE A SOAP OPERA THAT OUR WIVES LISTEN TO DURING THE DAY WHEN WE ARE AT WORK. THE CRUX OF THE ENTIRE IDEA OR TOPIC CHANGES WHEN SOMEONE FIGURES IT OUT- THAT IS CALLED THE TWIST- THATS MEANT TO KEEP OUR HOUSEWIVES FROM THEIR HOME WORK AND TO MAKE OUR LIVES MISERABLE – BECAUSE THEY ARE BELIEVING THAT TOTAL BS. SHALL I USE THE NAME CNN AND MSNBC TO DESCRIBE ANY FARTHER? THE NEED THE LICENSE TAKEN AND BURNT TO ASHES!!!
Obummer was a do nothing, slick talking, pretty boy black who wowed the media with his BS! He accomplished NOTHING doing his 8 years in office, except spend millions of tax payers money for his enjoyment. Unfortunately, he and the Hildabeast’s ego is so large, they will never leave the media spotlight!
I was in 19(MP)BDE/TXSG/TARNG for a while. I keep having this urge to just grab my a-bag and go down there – (tho I’m probably old now ggg) Still, there’s got to be something the average joe can do to help… the more eyes the better… take turns standing watch and calling crap in to the closest guard mount, something… why can’t TX and AZ build their own border inside the FED border and let us man that?
Be a 5%er… we are proud and thankful for all you guys we just need to know what we can do to help (screw DC they are full of excrement )
