While a legitimate political debate is fine, lost in the left's regurgitated talking points is any mention that President Obama's administration used the same facilities for the very same purpose.
Benny Johnson, of The Daily Wire, reports:
Current U.S. immigration laws, when enforced, have the consequence of temporarily separating adults who arrive with children into separate detention facilities in order to prosecute the adults.
The policy of prosecuting immigrants for crossing the border illegally has been in place for multiple administrations. The Obama administration prosecuted half a million illegal immigrants and similarly separated families in the process. So did the Bush administration.
Personal accounts from immigration lawyers tell a tale of Obama being equally concerned about unaccompanied minors traveling to the border and wanting to create a deterrent.
Photos taken at such facilities during the Obama-era are indistinguishable to the ones taken since Trump took office.
The mainstream media – from CNN to The New York Times to NBC News – has yet to show them to their millions of viewers. However, The Daily Caller has acquired photographs from a media tour of Obama-era detention facilities back in 2014.

So far, congressional Republicans have proposed legislation to keep immigrant families together at the border – which was rejected out of hand by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) who appears more interested in short-term political gain.
Not content to wait idly by, President Trump said he will sign an "executive order" intended to end this controversial practice started decades ago.
