Rachel Maddow breaks down in tears reporting on 'tender age' shelters

Rachel Maddow chokes up on air while trying to read story about 'tender age' shelters

But she was overcome with emotion at what she was hearing, and had to cut away to a different segment. Maddow chokes back tears while trying to read the report live on air, stopping several times to compose herself.

As she delivered Tuesday night's bulletin, Rachel Maddow appeared visibly distressed as she read details of the young children who are being sent to immigration shelters after being separated from their parents. In the latest news from inside the children's shelters, the Associated Press has reported that there are many crying babies and young children who are scared and missing their parents. Unable to complete her next sentence, she passed the news to the hour's next host, noting, "I think I'm going to have to hand this off".

Decades after the nation's child welfare system ended the use of orphanages over concerns about the lasting trauma to children, the administration is standing up new institutions to hold Central American toddlers that the government separated from their parents.

Lawyers and medical providers who have visited the Rio Grande Valley shelters described play rooms of crying preschool-age children in crisis. "Again, I apologize for losing it there for a moment", she wrote alongside the article.

Since the White House announced its zero tolerance policy in early May, more than 2,300 children have been taken from their parents at the US-Mexico border, resulting in a new influx of young children requiring government care. Apart from the three facilities - in Combes, Raymondville and Brownsville - the government plans to open a fourth shelter in Houston.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow went off the rails on Tuesday night when it came time for her to read a new report of "tender age" children being detained away form their families at the USA border.

Photos and images captured at the detention facilities in southern Texas show young children in chain-link cages, areas typically meant to house immigrants for no more than three days.
