But the scene the vice-president witnessed is sure to spark new criticism of the conditions facing migrants in US government facilities. Lindsey Graham said he doesn't want to see migrant families being released from Border Patrol custody.
"CBP anticipates populating the facility in late July or early August", Maier said. Trump earlier Friday called recent media reports and comments from Democrats about poor conditions "phony".
"I was not surprised by what I saw", Pence said later at a news conference.
Vice President Pence visited a migrant detention facility in McAllen, Tex., on July 12.
Pence asked the children if they had food and were being taken care of. A short time later, a large surge of Central American children began arriving at the border, and the administration expanded a temporary child facility in Homestead, Fla., and opened a new one recently in Carrizo Springs, Tex. But he conceded that numerous men had not showered for 10 or 20 days because the facility previously didn't have showers.

Thousands in Maui evacuated after brush fire rages in Hawaii
It was able to quickly spread after "feeding" on large areas of fallow, former sugar cane fields, and dry brush, officials said. No injuries or damage to structures were reported, but some farm equipment had burned, HawaiiNewsNow reported.
Such CBP facilities in the past have been used to house migrants for less than 72 hours, but that has changed in recent months as the number of families crossing the border grew. 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.
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".
The names of three current chief patrol agents, nine current or former patrol agents in charge and multiple border patrol union officials still featured in the group, The Intercept said in its report on Friday. "No longer do you come here", Graham said.
The Trump administration has agreed to allow a Stanford University pediatrician to conduct an independent investigation into health conditions for migrant children at US Customs and Border Protection facilities. She said they're gathered here to remember the lives that have been lost inside immigration detention facilities and on the border. She said residents had not been notified that the facility was under construction and was staffing up.
"They're crowded because we have a lot of people, but they're in good shape", Trump said. It is unclear whether that decline will be part of a trend, and with construction of new facilities, it appears the USA government is preparing for the influx to continue.
