Audio has been smuggled out of a detention center where small children can be heard screaming and crying for their parents, and White House reporters are ready to confront Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Here is the audio via ProPublica:
Reporters are playing it in the briefing room; you can hear it through the live feed as they wait for Sanders to come in.

The White House briefing has now been delayed by an hour. The audio of the crying children in that detention center brings home the level of abuse, cruelty, and trauma being inflicted on innocent children who were seeking asylum.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders and every member of this barbaric administration should have to look the American people in the eye and defend what they are doing. Falsely blaming Democrats is not a defense.
Listen to the cries of those children, if you can stomach it, and realize that Donald Trump should be impeached for the crimes and violations that he is committing along US border. The problem is that Republicans don’t have the guts to stand up to him.
