Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s immigration platform included numerous jabs at President Donald Trump, but the “horrifying scenes” he decried also took place under his own administration.

Biden, a former vice president and current frontrunner for his party’s presidential nomination, published an op-ed Monday that largely outlines his immigration agenda and stance on Latin American foreign policy. Biden, among other proposals, called for “Dreamers” — young migrants on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program — to be given U.S. citizenship.

Things weren’t that different under the Obama administration. Immigrants faced tear gas and family separation, as well as migrant housing camps.

The article goes on to state the following:

From 2012 to 2018, border agents used tear gas in 126 instances, according to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) information provided in a November 2018 Fact Check article. Of those 126 instances, 79 occurred under the Obama administration during a five-year time span — equating to about one tear gas episode per month between the 2012 to 2016 fiscal years.
