Democratic lawmakers want plan to reunite immigrant families

By the time Mrs Trump met with staff and children at the Upbring New Hope Children's Center, the jacket was nowhere to be seen.

'Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!'

The jacket cost $39 and is a product of Zara, a Spanish fashion retailer, from a previous season.

After sporting a not so subtle message on her jacket yesterday on the way to meet immigrant children that read, "I Really Don't Care, Do U?". "I can't stand this, I think it's insane, I don't care what message she's trying to send to the president or anyone else, it's inappropriate".

"Womp, womp" is a reference to former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, who-in a segment aired by Fox News-said that phrase in response to hearing the story of a 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome who was reportedly separated from her mother.

Since April, over 2000 children have been separated from her parents at the U.S. -Mexico border and put in facilities like the one Trump visited.

Wildfang had its version of the jacket for sale online the same day as the First Lady's visit.


Sensing the heat, Trump's spokesperson Stephanie Grisham tried to deflect the media attention and said there was no hidden message behind the jacket using SheCares hashtag in the tweet.

Wednesday's move marked a rare instance since Trump took office in January 2017 in which he has changed course on a controversial policy, rather than digging in.

"We came to Tornillo, Texas, to show our solidarity with the families who have been separated, the children who are alone and the parents who are grieving and the undocumented Americans who are losing more than I can fathom", Dunham wrote. The brand said on Instagram that it would donate $100 from the sale of each sweater to a charity of the buyer's choice.

Later Thursday afternoon, Grisham tweeted: Today's visit w the children in Texas impacted [the first lady] greatly. Donald Trump is facing criticism from all corners for his immigration policy, which caused separation of children from their parents.

"I'd also like to ask you how I can help these children to reunite with their families as quickly as possible".

As of June 20, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) had 2,053 separated minors being cared for in HHS-funded facilities, and it was "working with relevant agency partners to foster communications and work towards reuniting every minor and every parent or guardian via well-established reunification processes". She said she started crying when the two were reunited and that she's never going to be away from him again.
