In an appearance on CNN Wednesday, Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) suggested that she did not care enough about family separation that occurred under President Obama.

CNN’s Brooke Baldwin asked the senator if she spoke out against the practice when Obama was president.

The Democrat spent the rest of her answer dodging the question, and talking about the need to push forward on immigration reform. “We all need to continue to be focused on it and press it through,” she said, calling the immigration system “broken.”

The CNN host pressed again, asking if she spoke up under Obama.

Baldwin responded by recounting one instance where she helped a constituent get out of an immigration center. The senator then claimed she spoke out on “many other” instances of immigration abuse. But she never confirmed that she ever spoke up on the specific issue of family separation.
