Melania Trump Heads Back to Border, Without Her Jacket Distraction This Time

Director of communications to first lady, Stephanie Grisham, said that the policy towards migrants has changed, so the first lady wants to see change and talk with those whom they affect.

This visit comes just a week after the first lady traveled to McAllen, Texas, for a tour of Upbring New Hope Children's Shelter, a housing facility for migrant children ages 12 to 17.

She also asked who liked soccer.

Mrs. Trump stepped onto the carpet in her sneakered feet and squatted down to get closer to the children, still sleepy from recent naps. Her spokeswoman said it was simply "a jacket" with "no hidden message". We will remind, closet Melania became the reason of indignation in the network: the first lady wore a jacket with the controversial inscription "I don't care, do you?" But the first lady's husband undercut the no-message message by tweeting that she was saying she really doesn't care about the "fake news" media.

There may be no better story than this one to illustrate the challenges our country faces as illegal immigrants or smugglers (or both) try anything they can to penetrate the USA border unlawfully - and cruelly use children in the process.

Chief patrol agent Rodolfo Karisch showed Trump a photo of a six-year-old boy crossing the desert with a coke bottle and a note. A day care for children under 2 and a few mothers - also minors.

Her spokeswoman declined to immediately release details, citing security concerns.

For her second trip, the first lady wore white flowing trousers with thin black piping along the legs and a plain, fitted black T-shirt with three-quarter length sleeves. An official traveling with Mrs. Trump said there were 121 children there and their average stay was 48 days.

WASHINGTON, DC - JUNE 29: U.S. President Donald Trump (R), first lady Melania Trump (2nd L), their son Barron Trump (L), and mother-in-law Amalija Knavs (3rd L) walk on the South Lawn of the White House prior to a Marine One departure June 29, 2018 in Washington, DC.

In Phoenix, her motorcade swept past a protest of several dozen and a large, inflatable depiction of the president in a Ku Klux Klan robe.

The first lady was able to avoid an awkward confrontation by entering the building through the back, Casey wrote for KJZZ's Fronteras.

Melania Trump toured several classrooms at Southwest Key Campbell, a facility partly funded by the Department of Health and Human Services where children are being held.
