She continued: "The Trump administration has been sending babies and other young children. oh, hold on".

Maddow was reading the opening lines from a widely read Associated Press report detailing three "tender age" facilities where children under the age of 13 are being sent after being separated from their parents at the border.

This is Rachel Maddow upon getting the breaking news that Trump has established detention centers for babies who've been forcefully taken from their parents.

According to the report, medical professionals and lawyers have visited the shelters and reported "play rooms of crying preschool-age children in crisis".
