During her speech at the virtual Democratic National Convention, former first lady Michelle Obama called out and berated President Trump for the widely used accusation of separating children from their parents at the Southern Border and locking them in “cages.” What Michelle Obama seems to have forgotten, is that the policy was created under her husband’s presidency and halted during the Trump Administration.
As reported by the AP, Michelle slammed the President for locking children in cages but forgot to mention that they were constructed during Barack Obama’s presidency and used for the exact same purpose. The chain link block facilities were used to hold migrant children until U.S. Customs and Border Protection, along with Health and Human Services, could verify the children’s ‘parents.’ Many times, migrant children were discovered to be trafficked into the United States by criminals or persons with nefarious purposes.
The former first lady said Americans “watch in horror as children are torn from their families and thrown into cages.”
These cages, however, were created and utilized as early as 2014. In fact, Sara Carter covered the story extensively in 2014 when she worked for The Blaze.
This was the year several pictures were taken of the cages that began circuiting in past years to criticize Trump’s immigration polices. Many who posted the pictures deleted them after discovering they were actually taken in Obama’s tenure.
This shunned practice was eventually stopped by Trump as a result of the fierce uproar. This same outcry was not heard when Obama initiated the same practice.

Videotapes from Jan. 6 Committee Witness Interviews Vanish
Videotapes containing witness interviews conducted by the Democrat-led January 6 congressional committee have disappeared. The chairman of the House Administration oversight subcommittee, Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.), expressed his apprehension on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show.
According to Loudermilk, all videotapes of depositions have vanished, raising questions about the preservation of crucial evidence. He argued that, under House rules, these tapes qualified as congressional evidence, especially since some clips were aired during hearings. Loudermilk contended that the tapes should have been preserved by the now-defunct Jan. 6 committee and its chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.).
Loudermilk’s revelation has broader implications, potentially impacting criminal trials in both state court in Georgia and federal court in Washington, where individuals, including former President Donald Trump, face charges related to the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021. Notably, Trump’s legal team had recently requested evidence from the Jan. 6 committee but was denied by a judge.
The situation takes a further twist as Loudermilk disclosed that the J6 committee had sent certain evidence, such as transcripts, to the Biden White House and the Homeland Security Department. Shockingly, these transcripts have now been returned to Loudermilk’s GOP-led subcommittee almost entirely redacted, preventing the disclosure of their contents.
The lack of records regarding witnesses, their statements, and the extensive redactions have raised concerns among House Republicans. Loudermilk emphasized that these documents belong to the House and should not have been sent in such a heavily redacted form. The chairman questioned the motives behind the redactions, asking why a Democrat-run House was allowed to have unredacted documents while a Republican committee’s efforts were obstructed. This development adds another layer of complexity to the ongoing investigations into the events surrounding January 6, 2021.
