VP Pence Visits Detained Migrant Facility In Texas

Vice President Mike Pence viewed an overcrowded, foul-smelling facility in Texas for detained migrants.

Nearly 400 men are currently detained at the McAllen, TX facility after being accused of crossing the U.S. border illegally.

According to Reuters, the men did not have mats or pillows and some were sleeping on concrete.

Some of the men said they'd been there for 40 days or longer, were hungry, and wanted to brush their teeth.

Pence said he wasn't surprised by what he saw and said the center was a β€œprime example” of why the United States must secure its borders.
