WASHINGTON (Circa) -- Sen. Elizabeth Warren visited a processing center for migrants in McAllen, Texas on Sunday saying, "it's a disturbing picture."
Warren's visit comes after thousands of children were separated from their parents at the U.S./Mexico border as they crossed illegally. President Trump eventually signed an executive order ending his zero tolerance policy to keep families together. A zero tolerance prosecution process will still continue, according to Trump.
“There are children by themselves. I saw a six-month-old baby, little girls, little boys. There are mothers with their babies and with small children," Warren said. "“And they’re all on the concrete floors in cages, there's just no other way to describe it."
The Senator continued saying, "they’re big, chain link cages on cold concrete floors and metal blankets handed out to people. People are all just waiting and frightened.”
Warren says she spoke to families from El Salvador and Honduras. One woman told Warren that she has no job, no money and no food for her children and that America was her last hope. Another woman said she had to sell everything she had and move because gang members thought she was associated with police and threatened harm.
