MSNBC pundit Rachel Maddow used Obama-era photos of migrant children in cages to attack President Donald Trump for the practice—which began during the Obama administration.
On her show Tuesday night, Maddow showed Associated Press photos taken in 2014 of children in cages, separated from their parents, in an attempt to slam the president. A 2018 AP fact-check confirmed the year the photos were taken.
Maddow attempted to pin the "damage done to humans" caused by the Obama-era practice of holding migrant children in detention facilities on the Trump administration, failing to note the year the photos were taken.
"In terms of permanent damage done to humans, in terms of the severity of the damage deliberately done to humans, the Trump administration, no matter what else they do, they will never get out of the shadow of the fact that they really did as a policy and as a deliberate practice, they really did take kids away from their moms and dads," Maddow said. "It will never not be true."
In an interview in 2019, Barack Obama’s Department of Homeland Security secretary Jeh Johnson confirmed that the cages used to detain migrant children "were not built on January 20, 2017."
