FALSE Claim by Mike Pence (R): “The family separation policy actually began under the Obama administration.”

PolitiFact rating: False (The Obama administration did not have a policy to separate families arriving illegally at the border.

After mounting public pressure and criticism, Trump signed an executive order to stop separating families.)
