Here's a first batch of debate fact checks (more coming). Biden wrong that Obama put protection for DREAMers in actual "law"; Yang exaggerated in attributing mall closures to Amazon alone; Harris actually understated pharma/insurer profits:…
While arguing with each other, Biden and Booker both omitted important context:

1) Biden touted his 2007-onward push to kill the 100-to-1 crack/cocaine sentencing disparity...while not mentioning he was a leading figure behind the 1986 law that created the disparity.
2) Booker touted praise he got from the ACLU, late in his mayoral term, over Newark police reform...while not mentioning that this was after the ACLU filed a long complaint about policing in Newark, which was followed by a DOJ investigation that found major Booker-era violations.
Asked about this on CNN, Booker says he was taking over a city with big problems that couldn’t be fixed immediately; says ACLU thought he was going too slow, but it was a reform “partnership” even when ACLU tried to speed it by filing the complaint that ticked him off at first.
