Democrats love to think President Obama was squeaky clean…
But that just makes them as big of a hypocrite as he is.
Since President Trump took office, one of his promises was to secure our borders, and perhaps just because he is Donald Trump, the Democrats have heavily criticized him and even stopped him from being able to get the job done.
But a recent development shows that Dems and even former President Obama and his administration shared the same sentiments when it came to immigration, only they tried to get rid of any of the proof they might actually agree with Trump.
As first reported by The Daily Caller, the Obama administration deleted hundreds of speeches and statements off the Immigration and Customs Enforcement website hours before Donald Trump took office.
According to the new research, a total of 190 transcripts of speeches were deleted from ICE’s website on January 18 and in the late evening of January 19, 2017.
This recent development was discovered by the Sunlight Foundation, a nonpartisan group that advocates for transparency within the government. Amongst the deleted files were statements made by top ICE officials concerning topics such as sanctuary cities, E-Verify, treatment of detainees and other issues.
The Sunlight Foundation reported that, “with a couple clicks of a mouse, access to a federal government web resource containing 12 years or primary source materials on ICE’s history was lost.”
Ironically, one of the deleted speeches reportedly came from former acting ICE Director Thomas Homan who has publicly supported Trump’s immigration policies.
Despite obtaining this information, it hasn’t been made clear exactly why the Obama administration decided to delete these specific documents.
“It is not inconceivable that an outgoing Democratic administration might want to avoid preserving these public stances for future scrutiny… The removal of the ICE speeches collection represents the loss of a primary source history of the early days of ICE, dating back to its creation during the George W. Bush administration in 2003,” stated the Foundation.
