Campaign Press Release - FACT CHECK: Joe Biden is the King of Putting Kids in Cages

October 22, 2020

Joe Biden started and defended the policy he is now attacking President Trump for.

While Joe Biden was Vice President, the Obama Administration put thousands upon thousands of migrant children in "cages."

As Obama-Biden DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson said last year, "Chain link barriers, partitions, fences, cages, whatever you want to call them, were not invented on January 20, 2017, OK?"

Two days after these photos were taken in 2014, Joe Biden said he was "proud" of the conditions at border facilities. "If they're good enough for our military," Biden said then, "they're good enough for these young people."
