Melania Trump Makes Surprise Trip to Texas Border Detention Center

Explanation Officials from the Upbring New Hope Children's Center spoke to the First Lady before she toured the facility to meet children

The jacket worn by the first lady is made by Zara and is worth $39, according to the Daily Mail. She was told the children there, most of whom are between the ages of 12 and 17, are usually "distraught" when they first enter. Their physical and mental states are immediately assessed, and they are given orientation. The first lady signed it as well. He says staff have "a tremendous passion for working with these children" and the center is "their home".

Melania Trump made a surprise trip to the US-Mexican border on Thursday, visiting a migrant children's shelter as her husband's administration seeks to quell a firestorm over family separations.

'I don't know what she knew.

Melania's visit comes just one day after her husband signed an executive order created to end the family-separation policy.

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, a Democrat, said countless children who have already been separated from their families are being "parceled out like commodities in the dead of night" to places thousands of miles away from their detained parents.

For weeks, Trump had insisted he was bound by law to split children from their parents and that only Congress could resolve the problem - before he radically shifted gears.

"We all know they are here without their families and I want to thank you for your hard work, your compassion and your kindness you're giving them in these difficult times", she said. She hoped she could help them reunite the kids with their loved ones as soon as possible.

The trip came together within the past 48 hours, Grisham said.

Speaking to reporters, Grisham echoed those sentiments but emphasized that the first lady believes all immigration to the US should be done legally. She added, "After today's important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn't going to choose to focus on her wardrobe".

"I'm glad I'm here and I'm looking forward to seeing and meeting children", the first lady told the facility's workers as she sat down for a brief Q&A, followed by a tour.

In a statement issued Wednesday announcing her participation in the trip, Mihalik criticized the policy of separating families at the border.

"My wife feels very strongly about it", the President said Wednesday afternoon from the Oval Office, immediately after signing the order.

While the spokeswoman pointed out that the images of children behind a chain-link fence were from an intake facility where they were only held briefly, she noted that the first lady still had an emotional reaction to those photos. She had been expected to travel to promote the campaign but was sidelined a week after the announcement following surgery to treat a benign kidney condition.
