Viral “First Look” Photo Of Caged Children At ICE Detention Center Sets Off Liberal Fire-Storm… Only It Happened Under Obama
Sunday, liberal Twitter users including prominent far-left figures such as Linda Sarsour, hack writer Jon Favreau, and journalists such as CNN’s Hadas Gold set off on an outrage campaign over a photo of two illegal immigrant children sleeping in a cage at an ICE detention center… there’s only one problem…
The “First Look” article published by AZ Central was published back in 2014… when Obama was president. It took awhile for the liberals who were pushing the image to realize this, with some tweets now deleted but others still up after having been retweeted tens of thousands of times.
Shaun King wasted no time in militarizing the Obama-era photo against the Trump administration, tweeting “I saw this photo floating around and didn’t know if it was real. It is. Children of immigrants are being held in cages, like dogs, at ICE detention centers, sleeping on the floor. It’s an abomination.”

Linda Sarsour kept her remarks a little simpler:

Hadas Gold deleted her previous tweet where she used the photo against the Trump administration before being corrected, pretending that she merely “gave the impression” the photos were recent:

The US Govt is holding migrant children in small cages like they are animals–just as 45 describes them.
