Ms May described images of children in cages as "deeply disturbing".

U.S. president Donald Trump will meet Queen Elizabeth II during his first official United Kingdom visit next month.

May, the leader of the U.K.'s Conservative Party, has occasionally criticized Trump and his policies, even as she's worked to maintain her country's steadfast alliance with the United States.

She was challenged on the issue at Prime Minister's Questions by the SNP's Ian Blackford and a host of Labour MPs, including former leader Ed Miliband.

Earlier this week, Kirstjen Nielsen, America's Homeland Security Secretary, insisted her country had "compassion" but stressed: "Parents who entered illegally are by definition criminals.By entering our country illegally often in risky circumstances, illegal immigrants have put their children at risk".

Downing Street, Buckingham Palace and the USA embassy have all been approached for a comment.

May said Britain and the United States had a "special, long and enduring relationship", and she had "a range of issues" to discuss with Trump.

"Is the prime minister still intending to roll out a red carpet for Donald Trump?".

A state visit by Trump is planned for July 13.

Trump told Republican lawmakers Tuesday he backed their efforts to craft an immigration solution that ends the politically toxic practice of separating families on the US-Mexico border.

"What does this man have to do to have the invitation she [May] has extended revoked?"

The Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy refers all undocumented adults for criminal prosecution, a break with past administrations who limited criminal referral for most adults who illegally cross into the USA with their juvenile family members.

Children are being kept in cages after being taken from their parents.

The children, who are not charged with a crime, are separated as a result of their parents' criminal cases. It is traumatic and cruel to separate children from their parents.

Originally, Trump was invited for a full state visit but after an outcry, it was downgraded to a working visit.

One group of activists have started a petition and a crowdfunding campaign to fly a giant "Trump Baby" blimp above Parliament House in protest.
