Pence: Reports of conditions in detention centers prove ‘Congress has to act’

Vice President Pence briefly sparred with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday over reports of unsanitary, dangerous conditions in migrant detention centers.

“No American should approve of this mass influx of people coming across our border,” Pence said on “State of the Union.” “I was at the detention center in Nogales, [Ariz.]. … It is a heartbreaking scene. These are people who are being exploited by human traffickers. … Congress has to act.”

Tapper played a clip of Justice Department lawyer Sarah Fabian suggesting detained migrant children did not need toothbrushes or soap, prompting Pence to respond, “I can’t speak to what that lawyer was saying.” He then insisted congressional Democrats had resisted expanding bed space in detention centers.

Pence, asked about additional reports of conditions inside the facilities, said that “we’ve got to get to the root causes” by improving border security.

    The conditions are based on American std not what these standards are in the country where they came from. The average $ across Latin America is $354/mo. Average income in America for 2017 was $61,372/yr. What we call sub standard in America is high on the hog in Latin America. Take a trip to Honduras and see just how the average person is living not the ones the Government shows you. people in America think they are destitute if they don’t have a cell phone, TV and Nike shoes

      Gee, anybody notice how these invaders are dressed? Why are they dressed in clean new clothing and most have IPhones? My Iphone is 6 years old and my clothes aren’t that good!!!!! Next question is why don’t these people fix their own damn country? These invaders are taking the easiest way to prosperity.
      As far as I am concerned why should they get a free pass when Americans obey the laws of our country and invaders don’t. We have laws regarding immigration which are ignored by these invaders!!!!!!
