Audio of immigrant children wailing for their parents at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility

This is horrendous. Trump, Kirstjen Nielsen and Jeff Sessions need to be taken to the World Court for this. March them to the ICJ for human rights abuse. Listening to those babies crying for their mommy & daddy is soul crushing. Rotten mofos in that White House are abusing little kids, little babies. RABID RACIST DOGS! People fleeing danger and despair are met with even more from the good old home of the brave, land of the free. GOT DAMMIT!

The desperate sobbing of 10 Central American children, separated from their parents one day last week by immigration authorities at the border, makes for excruciating listening. Many of them sound like they’re crying so hard, they can barely breathe. They scream “Mami” and “Papá” over and over again, as if those are the only words they know.

The baritone voice of a Border Patrol agent booms above the crying. “Well, we have an orchestra here,” he jokes. “What’s missing is a conductor.”

Then a distraught but determined 6-year-old Salvadoran girl pleads repeatedly for someone to call her aunt. Just one call, she begs anyone who will listen. She says she’s memorized the phone number, and at one point, rattles it off to a consular representative. “My mommy says that I’ll go with my aunt,” she whimpers, “and that she’ll come to pick me up there as quickly as possible.”

An audio recording obtained by ProPublica adds real-life sounds of suffering to a contentious policy debate that has so far been short on input from those with the most at stake: immigrant children. More than 2,300 of them have been separated from their parents since April, when the Trump administration launched its “zero tolerance” immigration policy, which calls for prosecuting all people who attempt to illegally enter the country and taking away the children they brought with them. More than 100 of those children are under the age of 4. The children are initially held in warehouses, tents or big box stores that have been converted into Border Patrol detention facilities.

  2. We’re living a hellish nightmare with this thug posing as a president. He’s a white supremacist who has taken over our government. Just think, it will get even worse as long as he’s in office. He’s the enemy within. Impeach this despicable trash from our sacred Oval Office.

  3. Oh dear Jesus! Infants need their mothers. WTFF? The US media helped enable Trump with “he speaks his mind”, “Trump being Trump” & giving him free airtime to spread his hate and showing his klan rallies in their entirety to help put this disgusting thug in our sacred White House.

    Peanut walked in on me crying after I watched Maddow. I had to explain why. She asked if she could be taken away, because she looks Mexican. I couldn’t stop crying as I held her.

  5. You have a good heart, Rachel. I’m glad it happened to show the world how separating little babies from their mothers cuts to the soul and break our hearts. I wept with you.

  6. That’s what she gets……🙌🏽

    The GALL of her to even go to a Mexican restaurant after separating immigrant children from their parents. BISH PLEASE!

    Well, the DUMPSTER is in hot DOO DOO, when 11 GOPers demand AG KKKEEBLER & NEM halt their dastardly, dirty, ugly deeds.

    Watch & wait folks, because the GOP did nothing but side with the NRA when that white male killer/domestic terrorist murdered those 20 kids in Sandy Hook, CT.

    My prayers is that Trump, Sessions, Miller reap what they’ve sown.

  9. We’re going see little children dying from the heat if this madness doesn’t stop now. Do you realize what the temps will be in mid July in Texas? Are they trying to kill these kids?

  10. OMG! He’s a BRAZEN THUG. Holding little children hostage for ransom. Where is @UNHumanRights?
