Trump Says RGV Sector ‘Doing a Great Job with Facilities’

News

From NBC News:President Donald Trump responds to the Department of Homeland Security Inspector General publishing a management alert, containing photos of overcrowding in Rio Grande Valley facilities.

“I think they do a great job with those facilities,” Trump told a group of reporters.

“But you know how it could be taken care of, number one tell them not to come because it’s illegal, very unfair that people that have been waiting for seven or eight years and they’re about to be admitted and they study and they know the country and the history and then a person comes in walks in, and all of a sudden they become a citizen,” he said.

This week, government investigators identified poor conditions in the southern border, publishing graphic photos showing extreme overcrowding in Rio Grande Valley migrant facilities and finding that children there did not have access to showers and had to sleep on concrete.
