During the Democrat debates Wednesday, many whoppers were told by the candidates. However, one by Joe Biden takes the cake. When asked by Jorge Ramos, an anchor for Univision and a moderator of Wednesday’s Democratic debate in Houston about Obama’s deportation record, Biden told so many lies in his response that it was hard to count them all.
Biden claimed that Obama didn’t lock kids in cages or separate kids from their families. With all the evidence debunking his claim, you would have thought that Jorge Ramos would have called Biden out, but he didn’t.
Instead, the lie was told and the moderators moved on.
FACT CHECK: If you saw the featured image of this article, know that it was taken in 2015 during Obama’s second term in office. As horrific as the image is, it wasn’t under Trump. Over 90,000 immigrant kids were detained in cages under the Barack Obama administration, Trump’s 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale has discovered.
In fact, Obama holds the current record in the number of deportations to date. However, according to Biden, the numbers are zero.
In a tweet that has gone largely ignored by the mainstream media, Parscale said, “Over 90,000 kids were detained under Obama. And no one cared.”

Zerohedge.com reports: What followed was a barrage of angry tweets and an attempt by AP prove the claim false by conflating two narratives; the first being that Trump is putting separated migrant children in prison-like conditions – which the left quickly abandoned after it was revealed that viral photographs depicting the caged migrant children actually happened under Obama.
That claim then morphed into outrage over the Trump administration separating 20% of minors who enter the country from their parents – around 2,000 kids, while ignoring the fact that the Obama administration was also separating children from their parents, while widespread abuse of detained migrants under previous administrations was reported by the ACLU and the University of Arizona. One woman interviewed was detained for nearly a month in CADC while she was six months pregnant. She was shackled during transport to and from the facility. At the facility, she was denied monitoring or treatment for an ovarian cyst that posed a risk to herself and the fetus, and received no response to her requests for prenatal vitamins or extra padding for her bed.68 (Her case is described more fully in the box below.) Another woman interviewed was separated from her breastfeeding baby daughter, who was less than two months old, while she was detained in Eloy for two weeks. –University of Arizona
At first, the images of children in cages angered the left until they found out that the photos were from Obama’s era, not President Donald Trump‘s.
The self-righteous outrage died down overnight when that became known and they focussed instead on Mr. Trump’s detainment procedures, as the Daily Caller has reported. Obama’s detention centers for children are outrageous, children in keel like cages with foil blankets.
Like any other criminal, illegal border crossers arrested and their children are detained while their parents are prosecuted for breaking the law.
President Obama prosecuted half a million illegal immigrants, for instance, and also was forced to part families for a bit in the process. Former President George W. Bush had these same issues, but it was Obama’s America that produced the images seen today of kids in cages that he wants no one to see.
These atrocities are being largely hidden from the population as they are lied to by Democrats. In fact, under Trump, the housing situation has been radically altered.
The Caller also wrote that the “Obama administration prosecuted nearly 500,000 illegal immigrants between FY 2010-FY2016. They referred 1/5 of illegals for prosecution, which often resulted in family separations,” a fact lost on many American liberals today.
This is why so many leftist believe that child separation is unique to the Trump administration. What else would they believe when all they watch is CNN and MSNBC? These outlets refuse to fact check their own left-wing candidates when they make outrageous claims.
This is why the DNC refused to allow Fox News to host any of the Democratic debates. They didn’t want to allow their candidates to be fact-checked when they lied.
