HERE WE GO AGAIN: Blue checks are sharing MSNBC video of CBP agents pouring out water, don’t mention it happened under Obama

We’re starting to see this video from January from Chris Hayes’ show on MSNBC making the rounds, but yet again, the blue checks sharing it aren’t telling the entire story.

The clip shows how CBP agents routinely destroy water and other supplies left by aid groups for illegal immigrants crossing the desert. If you click the link, Hayes is crystal clear that the videos he’s showing are from 2010 – 2017, but in light of the recent tragedy where a young girl died in ICE custody, it’s, of course, being used as a cudgel against the Trump administration. You can clearly see the timestamp in this frame is from 2011:

For example, Jorge Silva, who was an aide to Harry Reid and on Hillary Clinton’s election staff, shared the video without including that this was common practice under the Obama administration:

Please re-watch this video shows border agents dumping water left for migrants. The water that was left in the desert by aid groups was left there so that people don't die of dehydration. CBP destroys the water jugs. |d0168108856af3282bd1e34393ea0483| via @msnbc

Actress Morgan Fairchild shared it as well:

This is par for the course, however, and libs will not wait before choosing the narrative:

This is getting tiring. The clear implication here is that DHS did something wrong, but there is ZERO evidence of that so far. This is a real tragedy, but the little girl hadn’t eaten or drank anything for several days before she was taken into CBP custody. https://t.co/EQPzKP26oY

You can argue that her dad had legit reasons for taking her on the dangerous journey from Guatemala and having her cross the border illegally, but that doesn’t change that it’s clear the journey is what caused her death.

She was having seizures and had a 105 degree fever within a few hours of being in custody. She was taken into custody in a remote area. As soon as they got her to a border station w medical personnel, they got her medical treatment and airlifted her to a hospital.

You can either blame the father for taking her on this journey or blame no one, but it’s despicable that the media is going out of their way to blame CBP when there is 0 evidence they did anything other than their jobs and try to save her life.
