UPDATE: The briefing has been pushed to 5:00 p.m. EST!!! Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be joined by DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, who will talk about the administration’s migrant policy.
Here’s a sneak peak inside the briefing room, where reporters have been listening to audio from a new ProPublica story in which Border Patrol agents mocked crying children at a U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility:

UPDATE: The briefing has been pushed to 3:30 p.m. EST.
Starting at 1:30 p.m. today, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is holding a White House press briefing.
Sanders will likely be questioned by the press corps over the Trump administration’s policy on breaking apart undocumented migrant families at the border, as the issue has led much of the news cycle for the past few days. Reporters will also be able to, yet again, address the administration falsely blaming Democrats for border officials taking children from their parents.
Perhaps viewers will see a repeat of last week, in which Brian Kareem of CNN and Sentinel Papers called out Sanders’ lack of “empathy” for the migrant children in the middle of the press briefing.
