Pictures have emerged of migrant children being held in cages at a U.S. detention facility after they were separated from their parents at the border.

President Trump's 'zero tolerance' policy is being widely criticised - including by the First Lady Melania.

Reporters who toured the facility said one cage had 20 children inside.

Mr Trump's defended the policy - saying the only way is to get tough,

"The United States will not be a migrant camp, and it will not be a refugee holding facility - it won't be.

You look at what's happening in Europe, you look at what's happening in other places.

We can't allow that to happen to the United States not on my watch."
