Recording of crying children at U.S. border adds to outrage

Fear of separation shadows immigrant families crossing US border

Several Central American children separated from parents at the southern USA border are heard desperately sobbing and wailing in a recording released Monday by transparency group ProPublica, some so hard they nearly can not breathe.

The visit comes as debates continue about the Trump administration's new policy of sending adults who illegal cross the border into criminal proceedings along with immigration proceedings.

Video footage released by the U.S. Border Patrol Monday shows dozens of people being led into the cages and people laying side-by-side underneath foil sheets in the facility, located in an old warehouse in McAllen, Texas.

Border Patrol agents taking into custody a father and a son from Honduras near the US-Mexico border on Tuesday near Mission, Texas. "What's missing is a conductor". The facility houses 1,100 adults and children, but hundreds of children are reportedly kept apart from their parents or other family members.

The incident is under investigation by the US Border Patrol, Texas Department of Public Safety, Dimmit County Sheriff's Office, Homeland Security Investigations, and Customs and Border Protection's Office of Professional Responsibility, Border Patrol said in a statement. "It appeared that they had been at the detention center for less than 24 hours, so their distress at having been separated from their parents was still raw", the ProPublica report said.




"It was the hardest moment in my life", she said. She insists on talking to her aunt. So no, I got no indication from this source.

One utterly distressed Salvadoran girl, which ProPublica said was all of six, can be heard begging authorities to call her aunt.

Authorities previously encountered the driver of the SUV last week, and believe he was in the area to pick up or scout unauthorized immigrants, Boyd said.

"She says 'I promise I will be really good. She's a child. How can they treat her this way?" ProPublica said it spoke with the girl's aunt, who said she was able to talk to the child. People may recall that, in that famous case about the Utah nurse who was arrested for refusing to draw a comatose patient, that comatose man was in the hospital because he was struck by a vehicle fleeing police. She also said smugglers and traffickers were using children to illegally enter the country and insisted that the only thing this administration is doing differently is enforcing the letter of the law.
