Barack Obama still has a lot of power within the Democrat Party.
His support is among the most coveted from Democrat candidates.
But now Obama might go to war with a top Democrat over something you won’t believe.
The 2020 election is creeping ever closer by the day.
There is a top tier of candidates, but there is no telling how that will look by the time of early primary states.
But as it stands, Sen. Elizabeth Warren is near the top of the pack, alongside Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders.
Warren is leveraging the fact that she is a woman, and further to the left than Biden, but closer to the center than Sanders in order to bring in a wide range of support.
But whenever she begins to surge in support, something happens that brings her back down.
And what she said at the recent Democrat debate may prove why.
While speaking about illegal immigration, she brought up the Democrat talking point of “children in cages” to talk about a 2018 trip she took to an immigration detention center in McAllen, Texas.
“I went down there immediately, I was in McAllen, Texas,” Warren said. “And I just hope everyone remembers what this looks like, there’s like a giant Amazon warehouse filled with cages of women, cages of men, and cages of little girls and little boys.”
After the 2018 trip, she falsely claimed Trump was holding “cages of babies” in the facility.
In reality, this center has been around since 2014.
According to CNN, it was a former Gmark warehouse that was converted into a detention center to help Border Patrol detain up to 1,000 unaccompanied children who arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border alone.
Pictures from 2014 show the facility filled with children.
But Warren was silent about it in 2014, when Obama was in office.
Now she is standing on the debate stage and essentially attacking former President Obama, considering that this detention center was built while he was President.
Of course, these detention centers are not the evil “concentration camps” that Democrats claim they are.
The McAllen center in particular is used for children who come unaccompanied.
Would Warren rather Border Patrol allows these children to continue the extremely dangerous trek into the United States?
Even if the children were accompanied by an adult, holding them in facilities separately is important to ensure their safety.
Drug cartels often send people they are smuggling across the border along with children, as they will have a better chance of avoiding deportation because of left-wing regulations.
Oftentimes, those children are on their way towards a life of being forced into sex trafficking.
If they can be separated from the adult accompanying them during the processing phase, authorities can prove whether or not they are with their parents.
Even Barack Obama followed this policy when he was in office.
But the Democrat Party has moved so far left that many of Obama’s policies on illegal immigration are considered too extreme.
Do you think Democrats have shifted too far to the left?
