U.S. Vice President Mike Pence on Friday toured a migrant holding facility in Texas, in an effort to counter criticisms from Democrats about conditions in those facilities.
As Pence emerged from the first of two facilities he visited, he said, "This is very tough stuff." He defended the treatment of migrants saying, "Every family that I spoke to told me that they were being well cared for, and different than some of the harsh rhetoric that we hear from Democrats on Capitol Hill." The Trump administration has increased pressure on the governments of Mexico and several Central American countries to stem the flow of migrants reaching the U.S. border.
