An audio recording that appears to capture the heartbreaking voices of small Spanish-speaking children crying out for their parents at a us immigration facility took centre stage in the growing uproar over the Trump administration's policy of separating immigrant children from their parents.

Mr Trump plans to meet with House Republicans on Tuesday to discuss pending immigration legislation amid an election-season debate over an issue that helped vault the NY real estate mogul into the Oval Office in 2016.

Mayor Martin J. Walsh blasted the separations as "disgusting" and called on Congress to act. Republicans are increasingly joining Democrats in that call. "It's time for this ugly and inhumane practice to end".

In it, several Central American children separated from their parents and thought to be aged between four and 10 can be heard sobbing and wailing, and calling for their mother or father. Melania Trump's statement, she said, "was stunning and raised eyebrows".

Mrs. Clinton, who often opposes President Donald Trump, sent out a stream of tweets blasting the White House: "What's happening to families at the border right now is a humanitarian crisis".

Mr. Trump will visit with House Republicans later Tuesday, where he said he'll get briefed on the bill and then will demand alterations.

The compromise bill shifts away from the nation's longtime preference for family immigration to a new system that prioritizes entry based on merits and skills.

The White House has said it would reject a narrow fix to address children separated from their parents at the U.S. -Mexico border, saying it wants Congress to "fix the whole thing".
