Images of caged children in U.S. ‘deeply disturbing’, says British PM May

British pm MayBritish Prime Minister Theresa May on Wednesday said images of children being held in cages in U.S. migrant detention facilities were deeply disturbing and that Britain did not approve of separating migrant families.
