Kids in cages: House Dems scrub tweet with photo of Obama-era detention center used to attack Trump

Kids in cages: House Dems scrub tweet with photo of Obama-era detention center used to attack Trump | 10 July 2019 | House Democrats have erased a tweet promoting a hearing on the effects of President Trump's border policies on children after finding out they used a photo depicting a migrant detention center under President Obama's watch. The tweet was posted in anticipation of a hearing scheduled for Wednesday afternoon, dubbed 'Kids in Cages: Inhumane Treatment at the Border,' and included a dramatic photo backdrop displaying the dismal conditions at US migrant detention facilities -- but it was soon deleted after conservative critics pointed out the origins of the image. The congressional Democrats then had another go at it, but their alternative photo choice, much to the lawmakers' immediate embarrassment, was also taken while President Obama was still in office. The second tweet was deleted in record time and replaced with nothing, as apparently the many thousands of up-to-date photos of the detention centers fail to convey the same sense of horror as the Obama-era images.
