Melania Trump Visits Second Child Detention Site Without Controversy

First Lady Melania Trump is spotlighting the plight of immigrant families detained at the border with a second visit to a detention center.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions joked about family separations during a speaking event in Los Angeles on Tuesday, just days after the Trump administration retreated from its policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the us border.

First lady Melania Trump wore a jacket that read "I really don't care, do u?" as she boarded a flight Thursday to a facility housing migrant children separated from their parents. Like so much about the extremely private first lady, it's a bit of an enigma: Some see her message on these trips as counter to her husband's hard-line approach.

At Arizona's Tucson sector, which is responsible for covering 421 kilometres of the border, Melania participated in a roundtable discussion. Early Thursday morning, there was already a police presence outside the shelter.

It was opposed by all Democrats but also by conservatives who argued it did not do enough against illegal immigrants.

More than 2,000 children have been taken away from their parents at the USA border with Mexico, under the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy.


Activists said that Melania Trump was not welcome. She again kept it simple, wearing an ensemble-a white blouse and navy pencil skirt-whose only defining feature was a slightly popped collar.

Grisham confirmed on Tuesday that a second trip was being planned, but details were kept under wraps.

Once in Texas, Trump asked how she could "help these children to reunite with their families as quickly as possible".

Melania Trump visits the Upbring New Hope Children Center run by the Lutheran Social Services of the South in McAllen, Texas. "Do u?" the first lady is also said to have pressured her husband to change his hardline approach after images of distressed children attracted negative attention from the USA and around the world. "I know how hard and unsafe your daily jobs are", she said.

"And if you try to scale the fence, believe me, they'd be even too happy to have you arrested and separated from your children", he said.

Later, Sessions defended the President's immigration policy, saying Donald Trump had made it clear to avoid separating families, but the authority "is going to work to prosecute all of those adults who come here unlawfully".
