Republicans Falsely Pin Mexican Border Child-Parent Separation on Obama Administration

Social Media and overall online news outlets are hot with pictures of children being detained after being separated from their accompanying parents. Republicans have been quick to deflect the issue by (falsely) pinning this on the Obama administration.

While the separation of children from their parents was not unheard of during Obama’s time in office, they didn’t reach anywhere near this level of insanity. What changed? It’s Jeff Session’s ‘zero tolerance’ policy.

Not surprisingly, Politifact rated this claim false.
