Listen to immigrant children separated from their parents scream and wail and cry for “Mami” and “Papá” over and over again. Meanwhile, a border patrol agent cracks a joke: “Well, we have an orchestra here. What’s missing is a conductor.” From ProPublica: trib.it/hKProPublica has obtained audio from inside a U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility, in which children can be heard wailing as an agent jokes, “We have a... ...

There's a special place in hell for those imposing this act of terrorism, and those who condone it too. Send YOUR kids if you think this is ok.

Jeffrey Langham, they were reporting the parents with their children until the new zero tolerance policy required them to he criminally charged, jailed, and separated. The new policy is a bargaining chip to get the wall built.

You could walk in to any daycare and record this every day as parents drop their children off.

Post his name. Post his picture. Make him famous.

I wouldn’t take the patrol agent’s comments too seriously. It may be his defense mechanism to the overwhelming sight of all these poor kids, and there’s nothing he can really do because he’s bound by orders.

maybe we should put them in jail with their parents, im sure that would work and make the screaming liberals happy

Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me; but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea. -Jesus

Don't come here illegally and this won't happen. Don't break the law and you won't be detained and separated from your kids.

Anyone who supports this atrocity is on the side of evil. Check your soul.

That guard needs to be Identified/fired. If he is the kind of person who is looking after those kids, they are definitely in harm’s way.

Sadly, Mami and Papi put their kids n this predicament by breaking our laws to come here ILLEGALLY. I cannot feel sorry for the consequences that naturally ensue when a parent breaks the laws and goes to jail. It's time to tighten the borders and get this issue under control again. Kids cry at Applebee's, kids will cry and wail under different circumstances. Trump did not create these immigration laws, he is only enforcing them as a President is employed to do. Congress needs to come together and find real solutions and STOP politicizing these children to try to make President Trump look like the bad guy. Barack Hussein Obama did much worse and if you do your research you will be perplexed with what you will find. The Democrats could not care less about these children or these families, they're simply trying to use "feelings" to manipulate us into thinking that this current administration is causing all this to happen when clearly if we instead look at the FACTS (THAT WHICH DEMOCRATS LOVE TO AVOID) you will see how the immigration issues have increased exponentially since the 8 years of Obama. Of course, back then the Democrats were too busy worshipping their President while he was "FUNDAMENTALLY" destroying our nation in many more ways than one. If you open your eyes and see objectively you will realize how this is all part the Democrats' game plan along with their complicit MEDIA to move us into SOCIALISM. They want total control. They will continue encroaching our FREEDOMS and our Constitution. They will disarm us and then destroy us. These are the basic strategies of SOCIALISM/COMMUNISM 101.

Fake situation created by the fake media. You people are so gullible it boggles the mind. Can't wait for them to tell you we are being invaded by space aliens, and it's Pres Trump's fault. 😂😂😂😂😂. I need to make some more popcorn.

This regime's immigration witch hunt is just beginning. "Last week, it emerged that the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (U.S.C.I.S.) had formed a task force in order to identify people who lied on their citizenship applications and to denaturalize them." www.newyorker.com/news/our-columnists/in-america-naturalized-citizens-no-longer-have-an-assumptio...

History will not be kind here.

When people from other countries think of America, they think of America Classic: The New Colossus BY EMMA LAZARUS Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame, With conquering limbs astride from land to land; Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame. “Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” The human beings trying to get here to escape hardship don’t necessarily know they are breaking law that will get them separated and locked up. They don’t know this America of monthly school shootings. Where is the outrage for politicians and big business who routinely break laws or use loopholes to skirt them. Where is the outrage for the 1% who lobby for legislation to increase their own income but send jobs and production overseas and get tax breaks. How much is this “catch and release” of human beings costing taxpayers? The cost is not only a financial loss. There is also a spiritual loss.

Don’t care. This story has been beaten to death. Get a job and stop enabling the liberal media

He's enforcing the law. Sorry but there's no sympathy for it. Every other country's immigration laws are more strict than ours, so why do we have to be the nice ones? Do I get out of a ticket with a sympathy sob story? No. Either enforce ALL our laws, or don't enforce ANY of them. Take your pick...

Shame on Texas Tribune for its partisanship and misrepresentation of the facts. Shame on TT for its naked politics and theatrical offering. Shame on you!

No law passed in 1997 to justify this. Just another lie. www.snopes.com/fact-check/was-law-separate-families-passed-1997/

The new Alt-America is an evil empire, with an idiotic man-baby as its leader

Their parents are to blame.

Deport the children WITH the parents. Close the Obama~era facilities and send in those buses bound for Mexico.

Why does he need to put out new legislation for this? Why not just join in and support the legislation that Democrats have already put forth to do this?

Ted Cruz is a vile spineless Trump lapdog. He’s only feigning opposition now bc Beto O'Rourke visited the children in Trump’s camps this weekend. Prior to this weekend, Cruz supported Trump’s child separation policy. Ain’t nobody fooled by Ted!! Cruz is just terrified he may actually lose in Nov.!

An election year ploy. He's trying to get votes so he can keep is free loading, do nothing job.

Ted Cruz and the GOP were fine with this not a week ago. Vote them out, or expect more of this.

BO THE BULLDOZER: The extent of care that our animal and vet teams take to ensure our residents remain healthy and happy is oftentimes jaw-dropping. You may have seen a cast on our greater kudu Bo’s horn recently in the Giants of the Savanna. Bo LOVES to spar with logs, root balls, and trees scattered in his habitat, and after an intense sparring session with his favorite opponent – a large pecan tree root ball – a tip of Bo’s antler broke off (and he didn’t even notice!). Because antelope’s horns are permanent and don’t shed seasonally, our staff stepped in to prevent further cracking damage to his gorgeous horns. Our vets covered the tip with epoxy molding and a cast. The cast needs to be refreshed periodically, so keepers have trained Bo to voluntarily present his horns to the vets for treatments while he gets all the snacks. The cast doesn’t bother Bo from doing any of his normal activities. (Yes, he’s still sparring with his cutthroat opponents.) ... See MoreSee Less
