MANY OF THOSE FAMILIES SEPARATED. PARENTS CRIMINALLY CHARGED, THEIR CHILDREN TAKEN FROM THEM, ALL IN THE NAME OF ZERO TOLERANCE. A POLICY TONIGHT THAT IS THE OBJECT OF A GROWING BIPARTISAN OUTCRY. TONIGHT THESE HEARTBREAKING IMAGES FROM THE SOUTHERN BORDER ARE SPARKING GROWING OUTRAGE. THOUSANDS OF MIGRANT CHILDREN BEING SEPARATED FROM THEIR PARENTS. AND NOW, NEWLY RELEASED AUDIO — RELEASED BUT NOT VERIFIED BY NBC NEWS. IN IT, YOU CAN HEAR 6-YEAR-OLD ALLISON FROM EL SALVADOR BEGGING TO TALK TO HER AUNT. THE SEPARATIONS THE RESULT OF A TRUMP ADMINISTRATION POLICY ANNOUNCED IN APRIL — ZERO TOLERANCE FOR ANYONE CAUGHT CROSSING THE BORDER ILLEGALLY. WHEN PARENTS FACING PROSECUTION ARE TAKEN INTO FEDERAL CUSTODY, THEY’RE TAKEN TO ADULT DETENTION CENTERS AND SEPARATED FROM THEIR KIDS WHO GO TO DIFFERENT FACILITIES. TONIGHT THE ADMINISTRATION IS ON THE DEFENSIVE.>>THE UNITED STATES WILL NOT BE A MIGRANT CAMP, AND IT WILL NOT BE A REFUGEE HOLDING FACILITY.>>THE SECRETARY OF HOMELAND SECURITY SAYING THEY’RE JUST DOING THEIR JOB.>>WE ARE ENFORCING THE LAWS PASSED BY CONGRESS. WE HAVE TO DO OUR JOB. WE WILL NOT APOLOGIZE FOR DOING OUR JOB.>>THIS IS THE EPICENTER OF A BORDER BATTLE. A 77,000 SQUARE-FOOT PROCESSING CENTER HERE IN McCALLEN TONIGHT, THERE ARE NEW IMAGES FROM INSIDE. OUR CAMERAS WEREN’T ALLOWED IN, BUT VIDEO FILMED BY CUSTOMS AND BORDER PROTECTION SHOW MIGRANTS HELD IN CHAIN FENCE WALLS, SLEEPING ON MATTRESSES ON THE FLOOR, COVERED BY THE MYLAR BLANKETS OFTEN USED BY MARATHON RUNNERS. CHRISTINA AND HER KIDS SPENT SEVERAL DAYS THERE HOPING TO ESCAPE GANG VIOLENCE IN EL SALVADOR. THEY CROSSED THE BORDER ILLEGALLY BUT WERE DETAINED AND SEPARATED. CHRISTINA SAYS, “YOU DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT YOUR KIDS, HOW THEY ARE, IF THEY’VE EATEN, IF THEY’RE SICK.” NOW REUNITED, CHRISTINA MUST WEAR AN ANKLE BRACELET SO I.C.E. CAN TRACK HER MOVEMENTS.>>YOU SEE THE TRACKS THAT IS REPRESENTATIVE OF THE LEVEL OF TRAFFIC –>>MANUEL PADILLA JR. IS THE REGION’S PATROL CHIEF AND OVERSEES THE FACILITY. WE MET ONE HIM ON THE BORDER. DO YOU FEEL LIKE THE BAD GUY IN THIS TO SOME EXTENT? YOU ARE THE INSTRUMENT OF A POLICY THAT IS OBVIOUSLY VERY CONTROVERSIAL RIGHT NOW.>>I FEEL THAT THE OPTION OF NOT DOING ANYTHING IS GOING TO WORSEN THE SITUATION. SO I THINK WE HAVE TO WORK WITH WHAT WE HAVE RIGHT NOW AND HOPEFULLY GET THE IMMIGRATION LAWS REDONE.>>THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES CURRENTLY HAS NEARLY 12,000 KIDS IN ITS CARE. A NUMBER EXPECTED TO JUMP TO MORE THAN 20,000 BY AUGUST 1st. IN A RARE MOVE, FIRST LADY MELANIA TRUMP SAID SHE HATES TO SEE CHILDREN SEPARATED FROM THEIR FAMILIES, AND THERE WAS A CHORUS OF CRITICISM FROM ALL FORMER FIRST LADIES INCLUDING LAURA BUSH WRITING A BLISTERING OP-ED CALLING THE POLICY CRUEL AND IMMORAL, AND WRITING THAT THE IMAGES FROM THE BORDER ARE EERILY REMINISCENT OF THE JAPANESE AMERICAN INTERNMENT CAMPS OF WORLD WAR II.>>THESE WORKERS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO PICK UP CHILDREN, AND THEY’RE NOT ALLOWED TO CONSOLE OR COMFORT THEM.>>Reporter: DR. COLLEEN KRAFT IS A PEDIATRICIAN AND RECENTLY TOURED ONE OF THE SHELTERS HERE. IS IT HYPERBOLE TO CALL THIS A FORM OF CHILD ABUSE?>>I WOULD NOT CALL THAT HYPERBOLE AT ALL. I MEAN, THIS IS GOVERNMENT-SANCTIONED CHILD ABUSE. WE ARE PUTTING THESE CHILDREN IN A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION BECAUSE WE’RE REMOVING THE ONE MOST-IMPORTANT BUFFER IN THEIR LIFE, AND THAT IS THEIR PARENTS.>>JUST TO REITERATE, OUR CAMERAS ARE BEING BARRED FROM SHOWING YOU WHAT’S HAPPENING INSIDE THESE FACILITIES WHERE CHILDREN ARE BEING HELD. THE ONLY VIDEO YOU’RE SEEING IS WHAT WE GET FROM THE GOVERNMENT AND WHAT THEY HAVE ALLOWED US TO SEE. OUR COLLEAGUE HAS BEEN INSIDE, ONE OF THE FEW ALLOWED IN. JACOB, TAKE US INSIDE. WHAT WERE THE THINGS THAT IMMEDIATELY STOOD OUT TO YOU?>>THERE’S SO MUCH DEBATE, LESTER, OVER WHETHER OR NOT THERE ARE CAGES IN THERE. BEFORE I WENT IN, THAT’S WHAT EVERYBODY WAS TALKING ABOUT. THE FIRST THING THAT YOU NOTICED. THEY LOOK LIKE DOG KENNELS. TO SEE HUMAN BEINGS INSIDE THERE IS NOT JUST ADULTS, NOT JUST FAMILIES, BUT IT’S AN INCREASING AMOUNT OF CHILDREN EVERY SINGLE DAY BECAUSE OF THIS SEPARATION POLICY. AND THERE ARE THOSE MYLAR BLANKETS YOU MENTIONED, MATTRESSES ON THE FLOOR. IT’S NOT JUST THEM — THE STRESS IS ON THE BORDER PATROL AGENTS, ON THE FOUR SOCIAL WORKERS RESPONSIBLE FOR HUNDREDS OF CHILDREN, AND IT’S ONLY GETTING MORE CROWDED EVERY SINGLE DAY.>>HERE’S THE THING I KEEP WONDERING — HOW DO THEY MATCH THEM UP AGAIN? MY UNDERSTANDING, ONCE THEY LIVE THEY’RE ON SEPARATE TRACKS. >>THE PARENTS ARE GIVEN A PIECE OF PAPER, THEY CALL IT A TEAR SHEET. IT’S UP TO THE PARENTS TO CALL A 1-800 NUMBER AND PRESS ONE FOR ENGLISH, TWO FOR SPANISH AND ULTIMATELY HOPE THAT IT WORKS OUT.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>>TONIGHT A GROWING CHORUS OF LAWMAKERS IS CALLING FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP TO END THE POLICY OF SEPARATING CHILDREN FROM THEIR PARENTS. THE CALLS COMING FROM HIGH-PROFILE DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS, INCLUDING LATE WORD FROM GOP SENATOR TED CRUZ OF TEXAS. OUR WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT, KRISTEN WELKER, HAS THOSE LATE DETAILS.>>Reporter: TONIGHT ESCALATING CALLS FOR THE PRESIDENT TO END HIS ZERO-TOLERANCE POLICY NOW.>>THE PRESIDENT HAS THE ABILITY TO STOP THIS IF HE’D LIKE. I UNDERSTAND THAT HE WANTS TO GET A COMPREHENSIVE FIX OF IMMIGRATION, SO WOULD I.>>Reporter: SO CAN THE PRESIDENT END THIS CRISIS WITH A PHONE CALL? THE ANSWER — YES. HIS ATTORNEY GENERAL, JEFF SESSIONS, ANNOUNCED THE ZERO-TOLERANCE POLICY IN APRIL. THE ADMINISTRATION COULD REVERSE IT JUST AS QUICKLY. BUT FOR HIS PART, THE PRESIDENT IS TRYING TO PUT THE BLAME ON DEMOCRATS.>>I SAY IT’S VERY STRONGLY THE DEMOCRATS’ FAULT. THEY’RE OBSTRUCTIONISTS.>>Reporter: THE PRESIDENT SAYING CHANGE THE LAW, BUT THERE IS NO LAW REQUIRING FAMILIES TO BE SEPARATED, ONLY THE ZERO-TOLERANCE POLICY THAT’S PROMPTING IT. WHAT’S THE PRESIDENT TALKING ABOUT? THERE IS A LAW AGAINST CROSSING THE BORDER ILLEGALLY. THE ADMINISTRATION ARGUES THAT OPENS A LOOPHOLE TO LET ADULTS WITH KIDS BE RELEASED AFTER A FEW DAYS. IT’S BEEN A PROBLEM DATING BACK MULTIPLE ADMINISTRATIONS. BUT FORMER PRESIDENTS BUSH AND OBAMA DIDN’T SEPARATE FAMILIES IN SIMILAR SITUATIONS.>>I WILL LOOK INTO THAT. I’M NOT AWARE –>>Reporter: SECRETARY NIELSEN DEFENDING THE ADMINISTRATION IN A FIERY BRIEFING.>>WHY DOESN’T THE PRESIDENT PICK UP THE PHONE AND CHANGE THE POLICY? HE SAID HE HATES IT.>>I THINK WHAT THE PRESIDENT IS TRYING TO DO IS FIND A LONG-TERM FIX. SO WHY DON’T WE HAVE CONGRESS CHANGE THE LAWS TO CHANGE –>>YOU –>>WE CAN’T –>>Reporter: THE REPUBLICANS PROPOSING NEW IMMIGRATION LEGISLATION THIS WEEK TO ADDRESS LOOPHOLES AND SEPARATION, BUT IT’S FACING STEEP ODDS AS THE CRISIS INCREASINGLY ENGULFS THE PRESIDENT.>>THIS POLICY OF FAMILY SEPARATION REMINDS US OF THE CATTLE CARS OF NAZI GERMANY WHEN CHILDREN WERE SEPARATED FROM THEIR PARENTS. REMINDS US OF THE JAPANESE INTERNMENT CAMPS.>>Reporter: LESTER, LATE TONIGHT, REPUBLICAN SENATOR TED CRUZ FROM TEXAS INTRODUCED EMERGENCY LEGISLATION THAT WOULD KEEP IMMIGRANT FAMILIES TOGETHER. NO INDICATION WHETHER IT WOULD PASS, BUT IT ALL RAISES THE POSSIBILITY THAT THIS COULD BE A TIPPING POINT. PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL MEET WITH HOUSE REPUBLICANS TOMORROW. LESTER?>>ALL RIGHT, KRISTEN WELKER, THANK YOU. WE’LL HAVE MUCH MORE FROM THIS END.>>>FIRST, A CHECK OF SOME OTHER HEADLINES TONIGHT INCLUDING THE SCORCHING HEAT ACROSS THE COUNTRY, SOME PLACES BREAKING RECORDS.

WE WENT LIKE FROM HAVING 50-DEGREE WEATHER TO ALL OF A SUDDEN TO 90-DEGREE WEATHER.>>Reporter: TODAY IT’S ALL ABOUT THE SIZZLE. 90-DEGREE READINGS ALL AROUND THE HEAT ZONE, BUT AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT PROMISES RELIEF OVERNIGHT. UNTIL THEN, 80 MILLION AMERICANS DOING WHAT THEY CAN TO BEAT THE HEAT. IN ALBANY, A WALK IN THE PARK NOT SO EASY TODAY.>>TRY TO CHOOSE THE SHADED PATHS FOR BIKE RIDES AND WALKS TO GET THE EXERCISE THAT WE NEED, BUT WE STAY SAFE AT THE SAME TIME.>>Reporter: SCHOOLS CLOSED EARLY IN JERSEY CITY, NEW JERSEY.>>I’M VERY HAPPY BECAUSE IT’S LIKE SO HOT.

VIRAL VIDEO SHOWING ONE OF ITS POPULAR ELECTRIC CARS GOING UP IN FLAMES IN CALIFORNIA. THE VIDEO NOW VIEWED OVER A MILLION TIMES APPEARS TO SHOW FLAMES SHOOTING FROM BENEATH THE CARRIAGE WHERE HIGH-VOLTAGE BATTERIES ARE STORED. AS MIGUEL ALMAGUER TELLS US, THE FEDS ARE NOW GETTING INVOLVED.>>Reporter: TONIGHT, TESLA IS UNDER FIRE AFTER ONE OF THEIR CARS CAUGHT FIRE ON L.A.’S FAMED SANTA MONICA BOULEVARD.

  1. Trumpy is a Known Liar !! — This situation is not law but Trump policy. — Sessions' interpretation of this policy has lead to a "zero tolerance" policy — Check on Sunwest Key as a contractor making Money off of incarcerating Children.

  2. Yet every day in America gas and diesel cars by the hundreds catch fire as well. This is just only one Tesla.😜

  3. Lol is this child abuse lol but hey chance kids life crossing deserts and drug trafficers but hey we are abbusinv them though they rather come get paid here send it back to Mexico while America gets worse. Wake up

  4. Weren't those migrants escaping from gang violence in Central America? Those kids are safe from gangs in our detainment center.

  5. Gosh as an Expat living in SE Asia for many years, USA is too good to illegals; the rest of the world would has no pity on this Jewish/Black/Rich to feel good about there entitled life, I say let all the world under 18 just get into USA, anything less is hypocrisy, then they can bring in all from those countries. I have no dog in the fight; just watching and laughing, doing good Karma not phony in a world that needs it.

  6. I met Richard Valeriani in Erie, Pennsylvania. I wasn't watching where I was going and walked right into him. He was a very nice man, and he even apologized to me for the very "collision" for lack of a better word that was clearly my fault. May he forever rest in peace.

  7. These poor women and children.

    https://www.thebureauinvestigates.com/stories/2017-01-17/obamas-covert-drone-war-in-numbers-ten-times-more-strikes-than-bush

  8. No, Trump would prefer that his camps be called "Trump Concertration Camps." Ya know how he wants absolute authority. And sadly the media helped him intentionally or not.

  9. These people need to stop acting like they are in Nazi concentration camps they are not starved they are not shot they are not gassed and they are not left to the elements. The dems are munipulating the situation

  10. Fake News… the only "abuse" is by the parents that chose to come here knowing their children will be separated. Yes, NBC / Lester… good try!!!! WE NEED better laws; not fake news…

  11. March and free the children . The sacrifice would be beneficial . I think trump would fall because of this.

  12. Just drop them off on the other side of the border, problem solved. If you break the law, your a criminal, thou shalt be treated accordingly.

  13. Why are we making this such an issue? Try to return as many children back with these parents who brought them to the border. Did the majority come alone? This has gotten out of hand. Hello obviously it's a new day and perhaps people across the border need to get the message.

  14. Wait, "government released images" only? What nation are we living in??? And then there is TESLA, the car that is "fortified to prevent fire from going into the interior." Ummm, owners take notice, the car co is saying this baby will burn, but not inside. And what does that sound like? Ah??? You are driving in an Easy Bake Oven!!!

  15. Let’s stop beating around the bush . Clearly it has been a good 200 years that American democracy /capitalism has proven to be such a superior system that rest of the world has tried to copy it or is trying to come here . The third world socialism has been a disaster than has lead it this mass migration from people around the world , especially our neighbors to come here . We can debate policy of immigration but let’s stop kidding ourselves that American has to fold to multi culture is wrong.
    Our culture is superior and we should not be ashamed . No one is running to immigrate the third world . We should asked these countries why they are so horrible people are leaving in droves and not repeat their mistakes here

  16. Gee. Does the take down of those towers remind you of something? Towers and their neighbors don"t drop straight down unless there are professionally set charges. As testimony from the designer/engineers and the police, and the firemen on 911 pointed out. Citizen-sheep will believe anything they are fed.

  17. it was a caravan that came to enter illegally. now how are we suppose to accommodate them all. we are feeding them clothing them and taking good care of them. someone has to take care of children while mother is processed. they should let child go with mother then send both back on bus.

  18. they complain so much ungrateful send them all back together with children. get buses send them and children back together.. gov can bus them out in gov buses. they are being treated good. it was a caravan that made all this. now they are saying bad treatment. they feed them clothe them. yes bus ed can get them out with children back to where they came from with there children. bye them out now.

  19. he's a nut. they came in a caravan to cross border in mass ed. the border patrol did best they could. to house them. they are treated good fed clothed washed bathroom priv.the fence is best could do with caravan that came at once. with so many trying to get in illegally. .

  20. The USA removes abusive parents from their children bc we care for human rights if you think taking your kids illegally across borders through many countries and criminal enterprises and deadly obstacles in order to falsely claim political asylum you are wrong. Where is Mexico’s human rights allowing these people to travel to the US border,

  21. registered democrats should give up their social security benefits for illegal immigrants and let republicans and others be able to claim retirement benefits at 55…

  22. why cant mexico help them out? why cant they get their countries together? instead of trying to fix their own issues they have to run to someone else like little babies help us and then they are groomed by socialist democrats to hate America and white people…

  23. There has to be some personal accountability here where the parents are concerned trying to cross illegally. What did those kids go through on their journey? I bet the conditions were worse on the way to the border. Also where is Mexico and other southern countries going to take accountability for their people fleeing because their countries corrupt and horrible treatment of their people.

  24. If I break the law with my child with me then I get locked up and separated. Charge illegal, s with child endangerment

  25. Typical card carrying communist propaganda news networks!!!……….They protect CRIMINALS yet support the MURDER of millions of babies!!!!!!

  26. Nothing But Caricature
    NBC is an active role in propaganda for profiteering as a commercial brainwash company

  27. Illicit conduct and education degenerated into a separate tier socially unacceptable for constituents informed outside of the executive CEO auspice of alliances

  28. I feel that they should at least put children in nicer and comfortable areas rether then throwing them in cadges. The workers should be able to comfort them and parents should be able to visit. This is cruel. I like Trump but this is beginning to push me away from him and his administration.
