Pence Thinks Toothbrushes, Blankets And Medicine Are Basic Necessities For Migrant Children
Vice President Mike Pence said toothbrushes, blankets and medicine are necessary basic for children.
The Trump administration recently argued detained children at the border don’t need those items. A group of doctors, advocates and lawyers say border facilities face major health and hygiene problems. According to CNN, Pence said the conditions were why they asked for more bed space in negotiations.
He blamed Democrats for the conditions because of failed negotiations during the federal shutdown.
