Mike Pence Slams Dishonest CNN After Touring Detention Centers At Border

Vice President Mike Pence toured some detention facilities at the border this week with reporters.

He acknowledged that the situation isn’t perfect, but noted the problems presented by obstructionist Democrats.

FOX 59 reported:

“To be honest with you, I was not surprised by what we saw,” Pence told reporters Friday, citing the humanitarian crisis and congestion. “This crisis is real, the time for action is now.”

‘Time for Congress to act’

Asked by CNN whether the conditions for the detained single adult immigrants were acceptable, Pence said no.

“No, it’s not. That’s the reason why we demanded that Congress provide $4.6 billion in additional support to Customs and Border Protection,” the vice president said in an interview following both tours and a roundtable with Border Patrol officials.

“The McAllen station, where our cells are overflowing … ought to be a very clear message to every American that the time for action is now and the time for Congress to act to end the flow of families that are coming north from Central America to our border is now.”

Pence’s visit comes ahead of Sunday’s scheduled ICE raids targeting migrant families with court-ordered removals that had previously been called off by President Donald Trump.

The upcoming ICE operation is expected to target approximately 2,000 people and take place over several days in major cities across the nation.

Pence later took to Twitter and slammed CNN for their dishonesty:

For the media, this is all about politics and narrative.
