Lee statue removed from US Capitol MORE (D-Va.) on Monday shared photos of a child detention facility in Texas that he called “the real Trump Hotel.”

The photos shared by the former Democratic vice presidential nominee show young undocumented immigrants in cages on Sunday at a Customs and Border Protection facility in McAllen, Texas.


Kaine’s tweet came shortly after President Trump doubled down on his "zero tolerance" immigration policy and called on Congress to change laws to end family separation.

The Trump administration has seen considerable backlash from both sides of the aisle since implementing the controversial immigration policy earlier this year, which seeks prosecution for any adult crossing the Southern border illegally. The measure has resulted in the separations of hundreds of migrant families.   

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the policy last month, claiming that the changes would help deter future immigrants from attempting the journey to the United States.
