Trump Dragged After Disgusting Border Patrol Video Shows Immigrant Children Living In Cages

"If seeing people in cages doesn’t haunt you, it’s because you don’t see them as people."

Amid accusations of improperly detaining children who crossed the border with undocumented adults, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) released a video on Monday which seems to prove the rumors were true.

Government released footage of an immigration detention center in McAllen, Texas, showed children, who have been separated from their parents as part of the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy, corralled in cages and sleeping on the floor.

The footage was released a day after several reporters and Democratic lawmakers given a tour of the processing facility near the U.S.-Mexico border, reported the Associated Press.

  • In the video, dozens of children are seen standing, sitting, or lying on the floor inside a metal fenced area

  • Also pictured are large foil sheets the children use as blankets

  • During Monday's press briefing, dept. of Homeland Security Secretary Nielsen said she hadn't seen the images and denied it was as bad as the media describes

  • The images of children kept from their parental guardians sickened most Americans

  • Trump and his "zero tolerance" policy were eviscerated by people on Twitter
