I am heart sick and have no words left that are not obscene. We must stand up against this.

Sobbing Children Mocked By Border Patrol Agent As They Cry For Their Parents At Texas Detention Facility

The New York Times reports:

“Mami!” the children’s voices cry out, between sobs. “Papá!” A recording of immigrant children calling out desperately for their parents after being separated from them by United States immigration authorities was released on Monday by the investigative news site ProPublica. The recording, nearly eight minutes in length, added disturbing and intimate notes to the debate over the Trump administration’s policy of separating children from their parents when families are detained at the border.

At one point, a child identified in the article as a 6-year-old Salvadoran girl is heard asking someone to call her aunt. “My mommy says that I’ll go with my aunt,” she says in Spanish. “And that she’ll come to pick me up there as quickly as possible.” At another point, a voice belonging to a man identified by ProPublica as a Border Patrol agent speaks over the crying children. “Well, we have an orchestra here,” the man says. “What’s missing is a conductor.”


  1. THIS COULD PSYCHOLOGICALLY DAMAGE THESE CHILDREN FOR YEARS.i’m convinced this is illegal and Trump and cohorts should be arrested. Trump and Sessions being the main two though Sessions will be the man who sent out the paperwork on what to do so The Rump will try for deniability.

    • Hello David. As long as his base loves him for being a jerk, and republicans in congress protect him, there is little anyone can do about this. All we really can do is show how horrible it is and keep the pressure up. tRump is using these kids as extortion to get what he wants, his big expensive useless wall along the mexican border. Hugs

  2. It really is mind boggling what your government is doing. The supposed bastion of human rights.
    Maybe this will be a lesson for us all.
    Trump will eventually be out of office and perhaps this episode will cast a long shadow and enough shame to induce a massive push-back and a serious review of your current electoral system that allowed for something like this to happen.

    It truly beggars belief.

    • I have trouble believing it is really happening, but it is. I did not sleep well last night. I heard on NPR this morning that tRump’s popularity went up with his base. Yes the more of an asshole / jerk he is to brown people and their brown kids the more they love him. I did not live during the late 1930’s but from what I know of history this seems to be like that. Hugs
