Pence Visits Trump Suites

Message 1 of 1

In case anyone missed it, on Friday, Pence and members of the Senate Judiciary Committee visited two holding facilities on the border.  The first one was at Donna, TX and was a fairly new, air-conditioned center holding women and children.

 

Then they went to McAllen where the "stench was horrendous" and Pence called it "rough stuff".  He didn't stick around long, instead immediately retreating to a room called the Bubble that provides a bird's-eye view (but I assume, sans the smell).

 

Michael Banks, the patrol agent in charge of the McAllen facility, said the men there are allowed to brush their teeth once a day and are given deodorant after showering. But he conceded that many of the men had not showered for 10 or 20 days because the facility previously didn’t have showers.

There were no cots for them to sleep on because there wasn’t room, Banks said. Instead, they are each given a Mylar blanket. He said they are also given three hot meals a day, along with juice and crackers.
