"Psychological trauma": Ex-employee describes facilities for separated immigrant children

For the first time, we're hearing from someone who worked inside one of the facilities caring for undocumented children separated from their parents. On Wednesday, "CBS This Morning" showed videos from inside the Cayuga Centers in New York, where groups of children can be seen in what look like classrooms. Pamela Baez is the former Cayuga Centers employee who recorded those videos and said she quit because of what she calls "injustice." Baez and attorney Michael Avenatti, who provided the videos to CBS News, join "CBS This Morning" to discuss the conditions inside those facilities, the toll it takes on children and the timeline of reuniting families.
