A former employee of Cayuga Center in East Harlem, the agency organizing NY foster home placements for migrant children separated from their parents, has shared video from inside a facility. The video, first aired on the Rachel Maddow Show last night, shows many children inside a room as well as one bereft little girl named Jessica, who cries for her mother.

When the ex-employee asks her where her mother is, the girl says, "Over in the States," and adds, "Virginia." The ex-employee then finds out that the girl most recently spoke to her mother "last week" and tells her that she'll send a message that another call between mother and daughter should be organized soon.

Maddow emphasized that the Cayuga Center is not separating children—they are taking care of children who have already been separated—and that children are not staying over night there. "They come there every day for day program services, and they sleep at foster homes at night," she said. "But [the children] are back there every day."

She explained that the former staffer who took this video "is critical of the amount of staffing at this facility, since the number of kids has spiked, especially the number of little kids... she says that the case management and medical staffing, and the number of teachers and trainers, has not kept up with the increasingly crowded conditions and the increasingly needy and increasingly younger population that they are now handling." Mayor Bill de Blasio said while many children are around ages 5-10, he saw a 9-month-old baby last week.

The ex-employee brought the video to Michael Avenatti, the attorney who is representing adult film star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit against President Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen. Avenatti told Maddow that many migrant parents as well as other groups have reached out to him for help in getting their children back.

Last week, Governor Andrew Cuomo said around 700 children are in NY.
