No doubt you have seen the pictures of kids in cages. They are usually accompanied by accusations against President Trump for keeping kids in cages.
The truth is those cages were built by the Obama/Biden administration in Carrizo Springs, Texas.
They were used throughout the rest of the Obama/Biden administration. But Trump kept operating it didn’t he? Actually, he did but just for one month, and then he shut it down. Biden criticized Trump over the facility even though he was one of the originators of the facility.

Just a month after Trump left office, guess what happened? Joe Biden brought back the cages he helped build. Anyone who thinks Biden is doing anything for them is either Chinese, Russian, Iranian or a fool. Biden is clinging to his globalist roots. Will the media blame Biden for locking kids in cages? Are you serious? He has Democratic privilege.

USA Today has more on the facility:
The facility in Carrizo Springs, Texas, will house up to 700 migrant children within the next two weeks, according to a statement Tuesday from the Office of Refugee Resettlement, the agency within the Department of Health and Human Services that is responsible for migrant children. The temporary Influx Care Facility will be used for children ages 13 and older who have been medically cleared of COVID-19, the statement said.
The move came after President Joe Biden signed a raft of executive orders aimed at unwinding the Trump administration’s hardline immigration policies, including establishing a task force to reunify children separated from their parents or guardians at the border under former President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy.
As he seeks to fulfill his campaign promise to swiftly undo Trump’s immigration actions, Biden is facing hurdles because of the rise in migrant apprehensions at the Southwest border and reduced capacity at facilities over COVID-19 concerns.
AOC claimed that Trump kept kids in cages and injected them with drugs.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says in a new video that U.S. border agents are putting children in cages and injecting them with drugs because they’re not Americans.
The really weird short video shows the New York Democratic socialist crouching down in a hallway holding a pair of scissors as she does a live stream on Instagram.
“At least I’m not trying to cage children the border and inject them with drugs,” Ocasio-Cortez says angrily. “That’s not a mistake, that is a deliberate policy to attack people based on their national origin. That’s not a mistake, that’s just hatred, that’s just cruelty, that’s just wrong.”
