Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin (Wis.) on Wednesday dodged a question on whether she spoke out against migrant family separation at the U.S. southern border during the Obama administration.
Baldwin has been a vocal critic of the Trump administration's zero-tolerance immigration policy, which has led many children to be, in accordance with federal law, separated from their parents who are prosecuted for entering the U.S. illegally. CNN host Brooke Baldwin asked the senator about any steps she may have taken back in 2014 to criticize then-President Barack Obama for similar immigration actions.
"But here's a question for Democrats, because you hear the president now, on a lot of topics and this one included, looking back to previous administrations, ‘Well, they should have done more,' right?" Brooke Baldwin said. "So as so many people in this country are certainly outraged by the cages and the thermal blankets and the facilities housing these kids, they were all there in 2014 under President Obama, and my question to you, Senator Baldwin, is, did you speak up against them then?"
Senator Baldwin did not answer the question.
