MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Reveals Heartbreaking Video from Inside Facility for Kids Apprehended at the Border
MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on Monday revealed footage from inside one of the facilities where children are being kept because of President Donald Trump's "zero tolerance" policy on the border. This policy led to mass separations of parents and kids who were detained by the federal government.
"These images were shot surreptitiously by a woman who worked at the facility until last week," Maddow explained. "This footage was shot late last week. The worker who took these images and took the footage I'm about to show you has since quit her job at this facility."
The video shows a young girl crying for her mother and speaking in Spanish. She says she hasn't spoken to her mother since the previous week.
"I feel that it's time for everybody to stand up and to stop being afraid and actually help these children that are being separated from their parents," said the anonymous worker who took the footage in a statement to MSNBC.
She continued: "It's very heartbreaking to know that there's children, even if it were just one, but there's a lot of them in my program. and it's sad to knkow that these children are crying for their parents. They don't know where their parents are."
