Why The “Abject Silence” From The Left About Child Migrant Detentions Under Obama?

The media is now self-censoring when the numbers don’t align with their narrative. The thought manipulation of the public is on full display. Rather than issue a correction, several news agencies have instead opted to delete a story stating that 100,000 migrant children were detained in US border facilities. This decision to delete comes after the United Nations clarified that the number is years old, predating the age of Trump, according to RT.

Many Twitter users noticed that the story was scrubbed because the numbers reflect poorly on Obama, not their nemesis, Donald Trump.

Once responsibility for the vast number of detentions was passed from Trump to Obama, however, the author of the story decided to clarify further that the 100,000 figure referred to the “cumulative number of migrant children detained at any point in 2015”, rather than all at one time, another caveat he conveniently forgot to explain previously.

Despite frequent and vocal criticisms of President Trump’s border policies, his predecessor’s approach to immigration was not entirely different, even earning Obama the moniker of “Deporter in Chief.” During his first term, President Obama deported some 400,000 migrants each year, setting a record for himself in 2012 at over 409,000. President Trump, meanwhile, has deported fewer than 300,000 each year since taking office in 2017. –RT

But the story didn’t fit the narrative that the mainstream media is attempting to shove down the throats of Americans, so it was scrubbed – not edited to reflect Obama as the bad guy.

So much for an unbiased and factual press.
