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.

Houston Zoo

The sweetest little Father’s Day present is here! Less than a year after Houston welcomed Asian elephant calf, Joy, a new kid is on the block. This morning at 2:38 a.m., 35-year-old Asian elephant, Tess, gave birth to a 345-pound female without complication, and the calf began learning how to nurse within the first few hours. The calf has been named Tilly by the team who have dedicated their lives to the care, well-being, and conservation of these incredible animals. Baby elephants are quite wobbly when they're first born, so Tilly will wear a harness for a few days so the zoo’s elephant team can help her stand steady while she's nursing. ... See MoreSee Less

They are being mutilated in the wild for their ivory. Look up the Houston endangered species project. Furthur they have acres to roam at zoos. Water holes. Things to play with plus excellent nutrition and veterinary care. And they aren't separated from their family's. People have become cruel to animals in the wild for financial gain.

Nothing good to say about Zoos. And to have them breeding is worst of all. They have no life, no where to do what nature meant. They need their herds, can't survive on packed dirt. They die decades early, just so people are entertained. SANCTUARY IS THEIR ONLY HOPE.

Poor baby elephant doomed to live a life of misery locked behind bars and walking on cement!! Elephants belong in the wild!!! They love to roam miles..

Elefants born in the Wilderness, there are happy and FREE ..can you say the same in a Zoo ? I think the answer is NO ..

She doesn’t need a harness, she will learn on her own! Sad she will be raised in a Zoo and probably be sold to another Zoo in a few years! BOYCOTT ZOOS!☮️❤️🐘

Why are there ropes tied tightly around this innocent baby?!

When will we get to see little Miss Tilly!!!! Sooooo exciting....great job Tess!!!!! 🐘❤️🐘❤️🐘❤️

Best Father’s Day gift ever...said the Dad of one of the elephant keepers!

misery. sure the zoo keepers do the best they can but really elephants standing on concrete!! wild animals in the wild or sanctuarys if they have to b..😯

So Awesome. Congratulations to everyone that takes care of the Elephants at the Houston Zoo. So happy Tess and Tiiy are healthy. Can't wait to go visit.

Congratulations Houston Zoo! Your elephant team sets the bar for Endangered Asian Elephant care!

Congratulations on the birth of your new elephant! Awesome job by Mom and her caregivers!

Calf #3 for Tess (and it's a night birth as well!) And a sister for Tucker and Tupelo!!!!

Congratulations to the elephant staff at the Houston Zoo! Welcome Miss Tilly.

Glad you explained the harness. Beautiful!

Wonderful news also another baby girl just born in Taronga Western plains zoo in Australia.

So what is the solution to protect endangered animals in the wild?? Until we can increase the population, are they safer in the wild?

Congratulations! Well done Tess and our fantastic elephant team.

Congrats, Tess! Welcome to the world, Tilly! Happy Father's Day, Thai!

Boy these elephants must really like their new habitat!

Leah Aubert wtf this elephant is going to be in captivity for the rest of its life 🤬

Oh my gosh, she is so adorably hairy!! I love her already!!!

Congratulations!! We have such an amazing zoo here. Thank you for all you do for these amazing animals. ❤️

Two baby Elephants?! Congratulations, Houston Zoo!!!

Stephanie we need to make a Trip back to Houston zoo soon to see the babyyyy
