Melania Trump visits another border facility, leaves controversial jacket at home

Quoting a Drudge Report headline Trump wrote''OBAMA KEPT THEM IN CAGES WRAPPED THEM IN FOIL' We do a much better job while at the same time maintaining a MUCH stronger Border! Mainstream Fake Media hates this story

"I'm here to help and support you and give my help, whatever I can, on behalf of children and the families", she added. She was told 1,100 unaccompanied children had entered Arizona's ports of entry since October 2017.

"Thank you for all your hard work that you do, and I know how unsafe and difficult your daily jobs are", Trump said at a briefing with border patrol and immigration enforcement officials and local ranchers.

She seemed averse to any distractions as she toured an intake facility in Tucson.

However, that trip was overshadowed by her choice of fashion. The Washington Post found secondhand versions of the sold-out army-green parka reading "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" in faux spray paint being sold at auction online, with plenty of bids.

Mrs. Trump's plane landed at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson at about 10 a.m.to tour the border and facilities in Arizona.

Melania Trump seemingly left her controversial jacket at home for her latest trip.

Trump signed an executive order last week allowing children to be detained alongside their parents or guardians after visuals and audio went viral showing crying migrant children being separated from their parents along the southern border, which sparked outrage across the U.S.

Sessions and others in the Trump administration have defended the new border policy in recent weeks even as thousands of children were taken from their parents and placed in migrant shelters. " The first lady didn't wear the jacket when she was with the children, and although her spokesperson said there was no "hidden message", President Trump claimed the jacket was an attempt to hit back at the media".

The policy of forcible separations saw the first lady make a rare foray into politics, saying she hated to see families separated and calling for bipartisan immigration reform to fix the issue.

Beginning last month, federal prosecutors began treating all border crossings outside a US port of entry as a criminal offense - even if the immigrants sought asylum.

The first lady is likely to visit the Tucson Coordinating Center, a short-term holding facility for migrants, according to the pool report.

Sessions said that refusing to prosecute adults crossing illegally into the United States would be a disservice to the children they bring with them. Adding to the confusion: a court ruling says that children can not be detained for more than 20 days, which means they would still have to be removed from their parents even if they stay together initially.

There is a Phoenix police presence outside the shelter Thursday morning. "She's advocating for quality care for these children under hard circumstances", Stephanie Grisham, Melania's communications director, explained.
