Acosta expressed outraged at the Trump administration's policy of separating families at the border.

The audio was recorded by an unnamed source last week at a US Customs and Border Patrol detention facility, where the children had apparently been held for less than a day after being separated from their parents. "Not on my watch".

The almost eight-minute recording is of 10 Central American children who were separated from their parents last week by immigration authorities at the border, according to ProPublica.

The White House's hard-line posture comes as a growing number of Republicans are joining Democrats to urge the administration to change its policy on family separations.

The President also continued to blame the opposition, asking, "Why don't the Democrats give us the votes to fix the world's worst immigration laws?"

But the Department of Homeland Security does separate children from their parents at the border, and it just put out a press release about it on Friday, explaining its new "zero tolerance" policy for border crossers.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions speaks at the National Sheriffs' Association convention in New Orleans, June 18, 2018.

"Well, we have an orchestra here", the agent says.

First lady Melania Trump "hates" to see families separated at the border and hopes "both sides of the aisle" can reform the nation's immigration laws, according to a statement from her office Sunday about the controversy.

Almost 2,000 children have been separated from their parents in the six week following the administration's announcement of a "zero-tolerance policy" against illegal border crossings. Children are not detained with their parents when those parents are facing a criminal charge, as per USA protocol.

"Does the president feel like Democrats are controlling the message right now?"

Trump has repeatedly called for the merit-based system to reduce overall immigration to the US. GOP Congressional members, follow her lead", a voter tweeted, with Sara Spector, a criminal defense attorney in Bush's home state of Texas, sharing this touching anecdote: "When I was the Attorney for child protection services Laura Bush the first lady of Texas at the time came personally tosupply the rainbow room with supplies for kids in foster care.

Trump again blamed Democrats for the family separations on Monday, tweeting, "It is the Democrats (sic) fault for being weak and ineffective with Boarder (sic) Security and Crime".

President Trump himself said he hates the policy. He said Democrats should come to the table to come to an agreement on immigration legislation.

Sessions added, "The law requires that children who can not be with their parents be placed within the custody of DHS [Department of Homeland Security] within 72 hours, something entirely different than the criminal justice system".

A Honduran mother with her daughter shortly before the two were separated at the US-Mexico border. "It is immoral. And it breaks my heart", she wrote in the publication.

She said, "What the administration has chose to do is to separate children from their parents to try to send a message that if you cross the border with children, your children are going to be ripped away from you".
