Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was confronted face-to-face with an actual image proving the Obama administration put immigrant kids in “cages” at the U.S.-Mexico border and he was not happy about it.
During an interview Friday night with Univision News, anchor Jorge Ramos cited a September 2019 quote from Biden, where he said “we didn’t lock people in cages.”
Ramos then showed Biden, former President Barack Obama’s vice president, that a photo of young boy being held in a cage in 2014.
You actually did,” Ramos said of Biden’s claim. “We found a picture of an 8-year-old boy from Honduras.”
Biden was visibly caught off guard and tried claiming the children they detained were unaccompanied and were held in cages for their own safety.
“Yes, and what happened was all the unaccompanied children were coming across the border,” Biden said. “We tried to get them out, we kept them safe, and get them out of the detention center … and get them into communities as quickly as we can.”
Biden then accused Ramos of lying by comparing Obama’s treatment of migrants to President Donald Trump’s administration.
“You know you’re not telling the truth here,” Biden said. “Look how quickly we got them out and got them back to families … we sought to get them into safe communities. We sought to get them out of the control of the [Department of ] Homeland Security.”
