On Thursday morning, Fox News again displayed the kind of good journalism that is so often lacking on the more liberal networks, as Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade asked former Barack Obama administration DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson about the cage-like structures that his administration built to hold illegal immigrants, including children.
The former Obama administration official recalled the construction of the cage-like facilities and defended their use for the safety of the detainees, especially children:
JEH JOHNSON, FORMER OBAMA ADMINISTRATION DHS SECRETARY: Well, look, any time you have a surge in the number of people crossing our Southern border — men, women children — the existing infrastructure can’t handle it, and so the solutions are not pretty. And so very often when we have a surge of kids, we’d have to go out and find a very large space like a warehouse, and you have to partition the young men from the young women — the kids from the unrelated adults with chain-linked partitions which some people would call cages.
Fox News contributor Tom Homan — who has decades of experience enforcing immigration laws — has also previously recalled that it was the Obama administration that built the cage-like facilities that liberals often blame on President Trump.
