"No shower, no shower!": Migrants shout as Pence visits Texas detention centers

'This is tough stuff': U.S. VP acknowledges hardships at border detention centre

Vice President Mike Pence, his wife Karen Pence, along with Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, arrived in the Rio Grande Valley on Friday to tour immigration detention centers and hold a roundtable discussion with border agents.

"We are working to expose and stop human rights violations at the border, but everyone needs to know that Pence and Trump are making these problems much worse on objective", Beyer said.

Central American families fleeing violence, poverty and drought have been coming to the U.S.in record numbers this year, peaking in May, when the Border Patrol made almost 133,000 apprehensions.

"And while we hear some Democrats in Washington DC referring to US Customs and Border facilities as "concentration camps", what we saw today was a facility that is providing care that every American would be proud of", Pence said.

In McAllen, it was a much different scene: Pence toured a swelteringly hot room called a sally port with hundreds of men, a strong smell of sweat and overcrowding so extreme there was no room for cots, the migrants left to sleep on concrete beneath mylar blankets.

Speaking in front of the crowd, one protester said, "And these children no longer have the opportunity to dream the American dream, which is the one that they had or their families had".

"The stench was horrendous", the pool report said.

"I knew we'd see a system that is overcrowded", Pence acknowledged at a later news conference on Friday. They love them and I've seen it.

. But he conceded that numerous men had not showered for 10 or 20 days because the facility previously didn't have showers.

Vice-President Mike Pence tours the Donna Soft-Sided Processing Facility in Donna, Texas, on Friday.

The children who gave the accounts to case managers about the mistreatment and also sexual assault allegations that happened in Yuma, Arizona had been held that the border station longer than the 72 hours permitted by law.

. To show this, we also visited an overcrowded facility for adult men, many of whom have been arrested multiple times.

"I'm the vice president", he said.

Pence said the rough conditions are why the administration recently requested and Congress approved $4.6 billion in aid for the border, and he accused Democrats of not supporting more funding for additional beds at facilities for migrants.

In a statement issued Thursday ahead of Pence's border visit, Texas Democratic Party Communications Director Abhi Rahman dismissed the VP's trip as a photo op. Children told him their journey to the United States by foot took two and three months.

Pence and second lady Karen Pence approached a couple of boys sitting on a bench.

Asked by a reporter about the conditions inside, Pence said, "I wouldn't take the word of people that are being detained here in McAllen for how they're being treated, but I'm very confident that they're being provided with shelter and water and food and access to health care and access to hygiene".
