A secret recording captures the sounds of crying children separated from parents at the border


The audio includes children sobbing and asking for their parents, some in what sounds like significant levels of distress. They call out "Daddy!" and "Mommy!" — in Spanish — repeatedly. Others sob so hard it seems they are gasping for air.

An audio recording that appears to capture the heartbreaking voices of small children crying out for their parents at a U.S. immigration facility took center stage Monday in the growing uproar over the Trump administration's policy of separating immigrant families.
