Pence punts to Congress for action on border facility conditions for children

(CNN)Vice President Mike Pence on Sunday acknowledged “a heartbreaking scene” for children held at US detention facilities on the southern border, but punted to Congress to “provide additional support” when pressed on the Trump administration’s inaction on the issue.

“This is the wealthiest nation in the world,” Tapper said. “We have the money to give toothpaste and soap and blankets to these kids in this facility in El Paso County. Right now, we do.”
“Well, of course — of course we do,” Pence responded.
    “So why aren’t we?” Tapper asked.
    “My point is it is all a part of the appropriations,” Pence said. “Congress needs to provide additional support to deal with the crisis at the southern border but we have to get to the root causes and close the loopholes that human traffickers as we speak are using to entice vulnerable families to take the long and dangerous journey north.”
    Pence broke with lawyers from the Trump administration in stating “of course” toothbrushes, blankets and medicine were basic conditions for kids, adding that his visit to a border facility in Nogales, Arizona, in April was “a heartbreaking scene” but still dismissed action from the Trump administration without Congress.
    “President Trump has said we could fix this in 15 minutes if the Democrats will sit down with us,” he said.
      As CNN reported earlier this week, a group of doctors, advocates and lawyers are warning of what they say are major health and hygiene problems at several US Customs and Border Protection facilities in Texas.
      “There was just a pervasive health crisis,” attorney Toby Gialluca said in describing what she said were the conditions at the Ursula Processing Center in McAllen, Texas. “Virtually everyone we saw was ill.”
