    Trump says detention facilities ‘beautifully run’ after report describes dangerous conditions (USA TODAY 7/5/19) https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2019/07/05/immigration-trump-defends-beautifully-run-detention-facilities/1660455001/ Trump’s praise comes just days after a government report found that migrants were being held in overcrowded facilities in the Rio Grande Valley, where dangerous conditions were described as “a ticking time bomb” during June.
    Asked about the report on Friday, Trump blamed Democrats in Congress for overcrowding in the facilities, saying “they will not give us any relief” from loopholes in the nation’s asylum laws.

  2. Ignorance is Strength says:

    President Trump on Sunday accused the media of reporting “phony and exaggerated accounts” of conditions at migrant detention centers along the border in the wake of two bombshell reports from the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) watchdog.
    “The Fake News Media, in particular the Failing @nytimes, is writing phony and exaggerated accounts of the Border Detention Centers,” Trump tweeted. https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/451906-trump-accuses-media-of-phony-reporting-on-migrant-detention-centers
    Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan earlier Sunday called the allegations of mistreatment, specifically of children, “unsubstantiated.” https://thehill.com/homenews/sunday-talk-shows/451876-mcaleenan-denies-unsubstantiated-allegations-inadequate-food-water
