Pence makes surprise visit to Chabad of Poway, Calif.

CBP Border Patrol agents from the Mc Allen station horse patrol unit on patrol on horseback in South Texas

The House will soon vote on one bill by Representative Veronica Escobar of Texas tightening oversight of the Homeland Security Department and another by Representative Raul Ruiz of California establishing care standards for seized migrants.

The pediatrician, Dr. Paul Wise, toured detention centers at the border last summer and was critical of the conditions there, according to a Stanford publication.

The group toured a processing center and met with border officials.

Rep. Debbie Lesko, R-Ariz., disputed charges that some of those being held at a Border Patrol facility in Texas were forced to drink water from toilets.

He said they were given three hot meals a day from local restaurants, as well as juice and crackers.

Ocasio-Cortez said there were American flags hanging at all of these facilities. "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. "We can not allow for this".

This comes after a report from the Office of the Inspector General detailing unsafe overcrowding at Border Patrol facilities in the Rio Grande Valley.

And earlier this month, the president downplayed concerns about how migrants are being treated at the facilities. Numerous families there were to be released within 72 hours.

"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 time to address this humanitarian crisis and secure our border is NOW".

Appeals court dismisses Trump emoluments case
The Trump International Hotel is located on Pennsylvania Avenue, just four streets from the White House. The panel of three judges decided that D.C. and Maryland "lack standing" to continue with their case.

"CBP anticipates populating the facility in late July or early August", Maier said.

The hearing came as the number of families, children and other migrants entering the United States 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.

When Homan tried to respond to Connolly, the two shouted over each other.

Vice President Pence visited such a facility in McAllen, Tex., on Friday, seeing hundreds of migrants crammed behind caged fences, some who said they were hungry, thirsty or were in need of a shower. According to a pool report, he told reporters he "couldn't be more proud of the CBP agents at the facility, and that every American would be proud". Pence said the overcrowding demonstrates why immigration laws needed to be changed. The reporters saw the migrants for all of 90 seconds before they were escorted away, and the vice president "briefly" went into the room.

The conditions were described by a pool reporter from the Washington Post, who said the fenced cages were so crowded that it was impossible for all the men to lie on the concrete. They said they hadn't showered in weeks, wanted toothbrushes, food.

"To be honest with you, I was not surprised by what I saw", Pence said afterward.

US Vice President Mike Pence visited an overcrowded migrant camp in Texas on Friday, coming face to face with detainees held in horrific conditions and deploring an immigration crisis that he said was "overwhelming our system".

"Look, this is tough stuff", Pence later acknowledged at a news conference.
