(WFLA) - WASHINGTON (AP) - The Latest on President Donald Trump and immigration (all times local):
A newly released audio recording that depicts screaming children being taken away from their parents has added to the outrage over the Trump administration policy of separating families at the U.S.-Mexico border.
The recording captures the cries of Spanish-speaking children being processed by U.S. officials.
The recording, first reported by ProPublica, was later obtained by The Associated Press. Attorney Jennifer Hardury said she received the tape from a whistleblower and told ProPublica it was recorded in the last week. She did not provide details about where it was recorded.
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen says she hasn't heard the audio but says the children are not being treated inhumanely.
