  • Border Patrol bigotry is a crisis all its own

U.S. Branch of Homeland Security authorities knew in 2016 about a private Facebook bunch where outskirt operators posted bigot and sexist remarks, acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan said on Sunday.

McAleenan said Sunday he wasn't previously aware of the group, but that he was "made aware that we had an allegation in 2016 that was investigated, followed up on and discipline was metered out".

"We had an overflow situation with hundreds of children crossing every single day", he added.

"Every in chain of command is anxious about the situation for children", he said. Now that we have the supplemental from Congress, HHS has additional beds.

President Donald Trump recently signed off on a new funding measure, primarily for migrant detention and child care.

U.S. troops on the border typically do not interact with migrants.

Raddatz noted that McAleenan initially dismissed reports of bad conditions at the centers, playing a clip of an earlier press conference where he called an AP report "unsubstantiated".

For months, McAleenan has raised alarms about the potential for disastrous conditions on the southern border while maintaining his agency has upheld government standards for housing detainees, despite evidence to the contrary.

"Supplemental holding support is requested for CBP holding facilities located at Donna and Tornillo, Texas. these holding facilities will be owned, operated, and managed by CBP", Pentagon spokesman Maj.

"I'm not denying that there are challenging situations at the border, I've been the one talking about it the most", McAleenan said.

"On June 1 we have 2,500 children in our custody; 1,200 had been with us over three days. That's why I've been going down to Central America to work on the origins of this crisis and address the human smugglers that are incentivizing and inviting people into this risky cycle in the first place", McAleenan said.

Raddatz read directly from an Office of the Inspector General's report that detailed bad conditions at border detention centers, asking "When you read that, when you look at those images, what's your explanation?"

Government oversight authorities found that hundreds of children had been held in CBP custody well beyond the legal limit of 72 hours and majority did not have access to showers or a change of clothes.
