US Customs and Border Protection decided to get into the Christmas spirit this week and people weren’t happy.

The official CBP Twitter account posted a picture of Santa Claus holding a "global entry" identification card, saying he’s been permitted to enter the country legally. This didn’t go unnoticed, prompting many to responded with a reminder of America’s brutal family separation policy.

People began responding with pictures of immigrant children in cages at the US southern border.

Because if you're going to use MAGA Santa to get people on side, then you better be prepared for backlash...
