Melania Trump to Border Agents: ‘I Am Here to Support You’

While all the information on the First Lady's plans is not yet confirmed, we have learned that Arizona facilities are holding 1,654 immigrant children, including 328 kids separated from their parents, according to Gov. Doug Ducey.

The speech came at the height of the controversy over the policy to take immigrant children from parents who cross the USA border. She got the chance to see the conditions of detained children at the border.

The first lady's office revealed Tuesday that she would be making another visit to a detention facility as the administration continues to face questions over the status of the more than 2,000 children separated from their parents due to the president's "zero tolerance" policy.

On June 21, she was castigated for boarding her aircraft en route to meet children at the US-Mexico border in Texas in the $39 Zara jacket.

There was no discussion of the thousands of children the Trump administration has forcibly separated from their parents and families.

Jeff Sessions was already under fire for his policy separating immigrant children from their parents when he was filmed joking about the children's plight at a speech to a conservative foundation this week, igniting widespread protest.

The just-below-the-knee dress was not particularly exciting, save for the leather material, which helped FLOTUS melt back into the background while the headlines about her jacket choice-which was dubbed apathetic-continued to splash across the news.

After falsely blaming Democrats for the separations and insisting that only Congress could fix the issue, the president last week issued an executive order created to end the practice under his "zero tolerance" policy, which prosecutes adults who come to the United States illegally. Melania Trump donned sneakers, white trousers and a black sweater.

President Trump signed an executive order that halted the separation of migrant families last week.

"I think the underlying reality is they should be with families", she said.

A federal judge ruled Tuesday that separated families must be reunited within 30 days; 14 days if children are younger than 5.
