good today. undocumented immigrants inside the detention facility are drawing intense reaction. our david begnaud is part of a select group of journalists that was allowed inside. he described what he saw as people in cages. the border patrol told us they don't like that characterization. they said they were uncomfortable with that. but they did not say it was inaccurate. for the first time, we may be hearing from children separated from their parents. investigative website obtained recording it claims aioud revealed canhildren crying out inside a detention facility. the civil rights attorney received an audio from a client who sayslast week. cbs news has not beend i adeblc independently confirm the authenticityis recording, which is mostly in spanish. here is a portion.th o

7:09 am
you really tell us, explain to us that this is an authentic tape? pngs i a tonne ohelath dmommy erand daddy. how can we tell it was recorded there at a facility? >> well, at the beginning of the tape, you can hear a heavy door changing shut and people saying, okay, you know, in spanish of course, it's, you know, sort of getting the children together and stuff. all that i can really say is that ginger thompson, of propublica did a great job. she's saying, tell her to come here right away, i'm all alone, i'm frightened. and she's begging and crying. ginger thompson, in fact, called that person and yes, the little girl exists, yes, the little girl is in detention, yes, she was frightened, yes, she was separate from her mother. >> what can you tell us about the children in the facility?
7:10 am
>> there is -- the place in the facility is where children have been brought after they were separated from their parents. those are the small children like age 12 down to 4 that you hear on the tape. there are also some teenagers that fled the cartels for example, ran for their lives and they're unaccompanied for that reason, and they're also in the back of that room. >> what do you say to the trump administration that says, listen, these parents are putting their children in danger. we're not putting their children in danger. parents are doing that. >> i'd like to give an example maybe of one client at one point. from a few years ago. he turned 15 in and that's prime time when the duras cartels arrive at h your door a say you're working for us or you're dead. they asked him the first time and he said no, i don't want to work for you. which is maybe not very diplomatic. they came the second time. and ran him over with a car. he woke up three days later with a head injury. his mother, a very poor woman,
7:11 am
had managed to round up 30 or $40, stuffed it into his hands and said run. >> the point you're making is these people are desperate, is that what you're saying? >> yes, parents are trying to save their kid's lives by getting them up here. >> as an attorney who works with children what is your take on all of this? what you're seeing and hearing? you've seen more than most of us. >> i'm astounded that america, of all places, my father having arrived at ellis island also frightened out of his wits at age 11, that of all places america would stoop to traumatizing and abusing children of refugees. how can we come to this? if we want to go after the cartels, 100%, wonderful. why are we punishing their victims? >> a lot of people are asking that. thank you very much for joining us. we do appreciate it. the administration is sending mixed signals about whether separating parents and children is intended to deter illegal immigration. cbs news radio correspondent
7:12 am
steven portnoy asked homeland security secretary kirstjen nielsen about that. >> are you intending to separate parents from their children, intending to send a message? >> i find that offensive. why would i ever create a policy that purposely does that? >> perhaps a deterrent. >> no. >> just last month, white house chief of staff john kelly said family separation could be a tough t.rrende r mireya villarael talked about that. >> despite the policy of separating children from their families, it has not led to a decrease of illegal border crossings. when we went into mexico just past this border wall in juarez, we spoke with a number of families who say the policy is deterring them. you don't have any more family here? we met this mexican grandmother
7:13 am
monday on the outskirts of ciudad juarez. she says she wants to cross the border to join her daughters in the u.s. but is scared she'll be separate from her granddaughter if she gets caught. you're asking that the president change his heart. she's been staying act a place in juarez known as casa migrante, a safe haven for immigrants trying to cross into the u.s. or who have been detorted. this is really interesting. this definitely stood out. these are the detention bracelets that are given to people when they're in the united states and illegally crossed and are being detained. as they come through this particular shelter, they leave this kind of as a memento and they go back to their home countries. >> i live in salt lake city, utah. >> reporter: geraldo soto has been deported twice. he says he's afraid of getting caught again. >> if i go now, they're going to, you know, i'm looking at 1 to 5 in jail and have another charge. >> reporter: but not everyone is deterred. according to the u.s. customs
7:14 am
and border poe directirotection the month of may, when the policy was implemented there was a nearly 2% increase in people who tried to unsuccessfully cross the border into the u.s. compared to april. for this woman from honduras, escaping cartel violence is worth the risk. she said if she can't cross legally, she will find another way. you're going to try and cross illegally? they can detain you. >> si. >> reporter: a number of families tried to cross this border here is up 400% last month. that's in comparison to the same time in 2017. i also spoke with a number of immigration officials in juarez who told me they have also seen an influx of people trying to cross into the u.s. legally but are also being turned away.an becae of a hbaum aca a s
7:15 am
leads the world in requests for asylum. more than 640,000 people had pending applications at the end of last year. and that is 44% more than 2016. but the u.s. had only made decisions on about 10% of those requests. david begnaud is at a port of entry in hidalgo texas. >> reporter: this is one of 11 land ports along the texas/mexico border. this is the entry point into mexico. you have at least four lanes. cars going in 24 hours a day. and there's a pedestrian track on the right-hand side. let me set the scene for you if you've never been to a border crossing. here where we are, it's quite busy. you've got people milling about. a shopping area. this is where the trump administration and other administrations for that matter have constantly told people you can come, ask for entry into the country, and avoid being detained or potentially being separated from your family. here's the flip side to that. there's a lot of people trying
7:16 am
to get in. there's a back-up in the application process. in some cases, it can take up to two years to see an immigration judge. that is one of the reasons why people crossed the border illegally, by themselves, with their children, and in some cases they send their kids alone. look, over the last 48 hours of covering this story, we know there are emotions on both sides, border patrol officials have come to us off camera and said we feel like we're being attacked unfairly. in fact, i had a high-ranking officer here in the texas area who is a mother who said, david, it devastates me to see the families being separated. but she said what makes me even angrier is knowing that these people were not only willingly committing a federal crime by walking across the border illegally, they brought their children, knowing that we would take them and that child into federal custody. >> david, thank you. as we know, people really want to be here based on how they're treated or mistreated at home. we wanted to hear how people living along the southern border view the crackdown on illegal
7:17 am
immigration. we spoke with one man named frank here in mcgowan. he told us he came here on a visa and became a u.s. citizen at 18. he's now 49, has children and tell us he's in the construction business. >> you know, i don't mean to sound insensitive, but we can't just open up the borders. a lot of times, we lose our jobs because a lot of these people come in and do the job for a portion of the pay. so we're left out. >> this is bigger though then opening up the borders. this is about children being separated from their parents. what do you say about that? >> i don't agree with that. >> you don't agree with that but? >> but my opinion is we can't just open up the borders. >> what's the solution? >> oh, my gosh. i don't know. >> as an immigrant yourself. >> well, work with the governments, with their countries, where they're from and try and get them to -- >> but you came here. >> yes. >> seeking a better life. >> yes. >> doesn't that seem like a contradiction as an immigrant
7:18 am
yourself? >> yes, it is. now that i'm here, i can see the point of view of the people that live here. >> and most of the people coming here are not -- they are law-abiding citizens. would you agree with that? >> yes, most of them are. but not all of them. >> when you hear those strong opinions from both sides, it really hits home that this is very complicated. this immigration debate is not easy to resolve. in our next hour, we'll hear from someone who spent time inside one of those detention centers. for now, let's send it back to norah in new york. >> gayle, thank you. to the whole team down there for that great reporting. ul morn 8 mlionpe texas today. thunderstorms are expected along the coast, along with some parts of louisiana. a flood warning is also in effect for parts of northern illinois where stranded drivers had to be rescued yesterday after heavy rain flooded roads. part of a nearby hospital also flooded, which led to evacuations. and in poughkeepsie, new york, a
