Selena Gomez Slams Trump's 'Inhumane' 'Kids in Cages' Policy That Obama Started
Former Disney pushes left's political agenda to her 152 million followers
Liberal pop star Selena Gomez slammed the Trump administration for what she described as "inhumane" immigration policies, not realizing they were launched under the Obama administration.
Gomez made an angry post to her 152 million Instagram followers decrying Trump's policies on 'kid in cages' but forgetting to mention basic information on the policies.
The former Disney star made a rallying cry for the political left in which she spoke about “human rights issues” of the Southern border and telling her massive social media following it was Trump's fault.
“Kids in cages! Sleeping on concrete floors with aluminum blankets! No access to simple dignities! How is this still happening???” the actress asked her massive social media following.
“It’s absolutely inhumane to treat anyone like this let alone children. I can’t even imagine what they are going through. We need to get this to finally stop!” Gomez continued before demanding her followers to contact their representatives.
“Don’t stay silent on this human rights issue- please call your reps 202.224.3121 #CloseTheCamps#FamilesBelongTogether," she added.
But these “camps” and so-called “cages” were active during the Obama administration, and weren't set up by Trump.
The mainstream narrative has referred to the detention facilities where federal immigration officials are holding child border crossers as “cages.”
Trump reiterated that point in April:
“Take a look. The press knows it. You know it. We all know it.”
“Those cages that were shown, I think they were very inappropriate, they were built by President Obama’s administration,” he said.
“Not by Trump. I’m the one that stopped it. President Obama had child separation.”

But unsurprisingly, very few 'liberal' celebrities spoke about the “kids in cages” during Obama’s administration.
Trump even signed an executive order to end family separation on the southern border.
“We’re going to have strong, very strong borders, but we’re going to keep the families together,” Trump told reporters last June.
“I didn’t like the sight or the feeling of families being separated.”
Obama's former ICE chief, tasked with handling illegal aliens, said it was Obama who came up with the idea of putting illegal immigrant children in the “cages,” not President Donald Trump.
Despite this fact, the Democrats are using the 'children in the cages' narrative to ignite outrage mobs against Trump as crucial aspects of their 2020 campaigns.
Thomas Homan, who was Obama’s executive associate director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement between May 2013 and 2017, was responsible for “promoting public safety and national security by maintaining direct oversight of critical ICE programs and operations to identify, locate, arrest, detain and remove illegal aliens from the United States."
