When Obama was president, somehow there was no national crisis on immigration, even though he was operating under the same policies. Cory Booker now wants us to believe he was just as outraged then as he is now.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Booker: ‘I Had a Lot of Problems With Obama Policies on Immigration and Family Detention’
Democratic Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.) said Thursday that he took issue with the Obama administration’s policy of detaining families at the U.S. border when Barack Obama was president.
MSNBC host Katy Tur asked Booker whether he should have done anything differently during the Obama years to prevent migrant families from being separated at the border. In response, the senator highlighted how he opposed some of Obama’s border-enforcement policies, noting that he wrote letters to try to stop family detention at the time.
“I had a lot of problems with Obama policies on immigration and family detention then,” he said. “Reached out to the administration, wrote letters directly to the president, wrote letters to [former Attorney General] Eric Holder that a lot of the things that we were doing even then to me were a violation of our values and our ideals.”
Booker said when families were separated under the Obama administration, that was in violation of American values. During the Obama years, Booker wrote various letters to Obama and administration officials about family detention.
