The DNC used the story of an illegal immigrant mother to criticize President Trump but the person in question was first deported from the U.S. under the Clinton administration and later flagged for deportation while Barack Obama was in office.
The story: The DNC on Wednesday showed a video that featured 11-year-old Estela Juarez who read from a letter that accused President Trump of orphaning immigrant children and spoke about being separated from her mother, Alejandra Juarez, who was purportedly deported by the Trump administration.
“My mom is my best friend. She came to America as a teenager over 20 years ago without papers in search of a better life. She married my dad, who served our country as a Marine in South America, Africa, and Iraq. My mom worked hard and paid taxes, and the Obama administration told her she could stay,” Juarez said.
