Pence praised the efforts of Mexico who recently deployed 15,000 troops to the border
Vice President Mike Pence said on Tuesday that Mexican authorities had done more to secure the U.S.-Mexico border than the Democrats in Congress have in 10 years.
Pence praised the efforts of Mexico who on Tuesday deployed 15,000 troops to the US border to stop illegal immigrants from entering the United States.
“Mexico is keeping its promise & now sending 15,000 troops to the border to help with crisis,” Pence tweeted.
“Meanwhile Dems won’t fund beds for migrant children. Mexico continues to do more than Congressional Dems to secure our border and its time for them to STEP UP!”
Pence said something similar on the Sunday morning appearance on “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper, again saying, “Mexico has done more to secure our border in 10 days than Democrats in Congress have in 10 YEARS.”
President Donald Trump blasted Democrats last week for failing to help solve the migrant crisis at the US Southern Border.
“Mexico doing more for the United States now than Congress — specifically the Democrats,” President Trump said from the White House.
“We have a tremendous problem at the border.”
Trump commented on the issue while recognizing the winner of the Indy 500 race.

According to The Daily Caller: Democrats have repeatedly refused to fund for additional beds in migrant detention centers, all while blaming President Donald Trump for the overcrowded conditions.
Freshman Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for the detention centers to be closed and no additional funding but offered no solutions as to what should be done about the influx of illegal immigrants.
Ocasio-Cortez even threw her support behind Wayfair employees who planned a walkout for Wednesday upon learning that the company was supplying beds to detention centers.
