A photo is making the rounds on social media of a little boy stuck inside a cage and which many immigration advocates say is a depiction of how the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy is separating kids from their families. However, many people sharing the photo are unaware of its original context.
This is what happens when a government believes people are “illegal.”

The photo gained traction on Twitter last week after journalist and filmmaker Jose Antonio Vargas tweeted the photo with the caption: “This is what happens when a government believes people are ‘illegal.’ Kids in cages.”
Many others shared the photo with a few words torching the Trump administration’s immigration policies and encouraged others to share the picture.
Although many social media users claimed the boy in the photo was an illegal immigrant trapped in a cage by immigration authorities, the photo is actually from a June 10 protest staged outside of Dallas City Hall, according to the fact-checking website Snopes.

The democrats will do any thing to get back in power. Beware of there lies cause that is just what it is LIES.
It should be exposed to the citizens of this nation that this play on “illegal children” being brought in to the U S are the same weapon used in previous wars. The greatest percentages of these children are NOT coming in with their biological parents. They have been given over to the “movement” by their parents, some are kidnapped, and others are bought and sold for the purpose you see now. They come with no papers (birth certificates) so they cannot be identified as to who they “belong” . The North Vietnamese, Viet Cong, used kids , sending them into the mine fields and into the firing lines. North Korea used the same method, and so has the Taliban and Hamas. What really ticks me is the long time democrat politicians know this. But they are using the same ploy for their political purposes. I guarantee that at least 50% of these kids DO NOT belong to any of the illegals that have crossed the border.
What kind of parents bring their children to a protest or another country illegally where they can be arrested? I’ll tell you. BAD PARENTS! They are to blame, not US laws! Wake up citizen!
The corrupt MSM works in collusion with the Democrat political machine. Neither the Press nor the Democrats are interested in facts, truth, laws, which must be legislated by Congress to change the law. The issue of the children of illegals was bound to happen, the Democrats wanted it to happen as it has, while Senator Schumer, more of a snake than human, wanted the dilemma of children brought by illegals to insulate the parents, if all of those adults are truly parents of the kids.
The Democrats refuse to vote with the Republicans to change the laws, for fear that Trump,who must sign the bill to be legal, would be credited by the people for signing the bill change to make it legal. This has become a very ugly situation for the nation, but thus far, the Leftists thought that the federal government, under duress, would just allow illegals to walk right in. It amounts to the smuggling of illegals into our country, in daylight and full view despite our nation’s laws.
I have a Trump bumper sticker on my car,come mess with it and see what happens,punk liberal.
Funny that this situation existed during terms of two other President’s and I never heard a word. WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT NOW THAT PEOPLE ARE WAKING UP AND JUST LEARNING ABOUT SOMETHING THAT WENT ON FOR 16 YEARS PRIOR TO TRUMP?
