Although I hate to admit it, Sabcat is correct. Some of the photos of children in cages were from Obama era 2014, so actually, THOSE PHOTOS should clear up any LIES about Obama's "welcome mat" and open borders.
The whole episode perfectly illustrates how immigration — or the government’s mistreatment of migrants, to be specific — has of late turned into a game of political hot potato, not helped by the fact that it’s an incredibly confusing issue. The nearly 1,500 missing children were widely conflated with Trump’s family-separation policy, for instance, but those kids were actually minors who crossed the border by themselves.

BUT...Obama never established a policy that specifically mandated that kids be separated from parents at the US-Mexico border. This a new, Trump-era innovation in cruelty.

Here are some things that Obama DID DO:
Arrested tens of thousands of undocumented parents whose kids were US citizens, causing them to lose contact with their children.

Those parents were deported to countries they hadn't lived in for decades.

Thousands of kids were left orphaned without a legal guardian.

Hundreds of families were separated--typically husbands and wives.

Trump simply took an Obama policy and made it worse.

It doesn’t matter who started it or when. Now is the time to do something about it. You can piss and moan all you like, but the fact remains that this treatment needs to stop. Or do you think this is Ok?

I blame you for supporting this vicious hateful policy.

Not that I'm surprised such a horrible nasty mean-spirited and vile heathen would support such an action - but blame, nonetheless.
Thanks from RNG

Not okay, but what? Maybe the photos should be postered at the border, and give parents or parents-to-be second thoughts about jumping illegally. Regardless, progressives will find a way to raise taxes because of this.

I'm crushed,,,,,,not! It's not mean spirited, it's the law, and it is being enforced, of course you shoulder none of the blame on the criminals you are one of the touchy feely people. Breaking the law has consequences. Hopefully this will curtail these people using their children as political fodder.

Kate, a lot of these people are seeking asylum, that's legal entry. And no, posting photos of this kind of thing at the border is not the answer, stopping this kind of treatment is.

The lesson to be learned is ours- we as a country should not be treating people this way. At the very least, we should not be separating people from their children. How you can not find that completely unacceptable is beyond me.
According to the DOJ and the Border Patrol, the vast majority of asylum requests are bogus. Special interest groups have been coaching illegal aliens on what to say.
