Pence Acknowledges Tough Stuff At Border Detention Center


11 minutes ago

WASHINGTON (AP) — Acknowledging “this is tough stuff,” Vice President Mike Pence says he was not surprised by what he saw Friday as he toured a Texas Border Patrol station, where hundreds of men were being kept in cages with no cots amid sweltering heat.

Pence said later, “I knew we’d see a system that was overwhelmed.”

The vice president visited the McAllen Border Patrol station Friday. When detainees saw reporters arrive, many began shouting, saying they had been there for 40 days or more and they were hungry and wanted to brush their teeth. Agents guarding the cages were wearing face masks.

The press pool covering the vice president was pulled out within 90 seconds.

Pence says he has pushed for more federal spending to deal with the situation.

1. I personally hope they are miserable. They broke the law, overwhelmed facilities,

and leech of our welfare system. Maybe they are having second thoughts about coming here.

2. The good news, RC is

that they can LEAVE anytime...just go home. I have NO sympathy for their plight. Their misery is a creation of their own doing.
