The same day groups across the country scheduled vigils to protest the conditions of detention facilities.

Democrats have meanwhile demanded the Inspector General's office at the US Department of Homeland Security look into whether she or Kevin McAleenan, acting secretary of the agency, knew about officials sharing "violent, racist, misogynistic comments and pictures" in the group that was previously known as "I'm 10-15".

"From there, they get moved to a different processing center, which is kind of cage-like, and labeled the 'perrera, ' the dog pound", he said in the September 17, 2018 article.

The hearing came as the number of families, children and other migrants entering the U.S. from Mexico has surged above 100,000 monthly since March, overwhelming federal agencies' ability to detain them in sanitary conditions or move them quickly to better housing. Lindsey Graham said he doesn't want to see migrant families being released from Border Patrol custody. "What was worst about this was the fact that there were American flags hanging all over these facilities, that children were being separated from their parents in front of the American flag, " she said.

He rebutted the term "manufactured crisis" to say that conditions along the southwest border constitute a real crisis that necessitates immediate action.

"I was and I remain shaken to my core by what I witnessed at Clint", said Mukherjee, who has been working with detained families and children on the southern border for 12 years. The bill would be counter to the 1997 Flores Settlement Agreement, which mandates that people seeking asylum not be held in detention longer than 20 days. "It's about [an] open borders agenda, resisting our president - more interest in that than securing our border", he said.

"Every family I spoke to said they were being well cared for, " Pence said, criticizing Democrats' "harsh rhetoric".

Later in the evening, the vice president and pool reporters with him went to a section of the McAllen Border station with nearly 400 men stood in caged fences. Lindsey Graham that would radically change US immigration law.

Dawsey writes that it was not only "sweltering hot" but that "the stench was horrendous".

After visiting the facility, Pence said at a news conference that he was not surprised by what he saw. When I went in there, one of them said to me - I'm talking about the second facility, this isn't human, the way we're treated.

He added: "This is tough stuff".
