Melania Trump Travels To Arizona To Visit Migrant Detention Facilities

The center was set up to house unaccompanied child migrants who had crossed the border over the previous months

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.

The first lady boarded her plane wearing a black shirt and white slacks for the flight.

"She cares about children deeply", Grisham told USA TODAY aboard the first lady's plane. "She's learning that these people at HHS facilities are providing some outstanding care under hard circumstances".

Congresswoman for Nevada, Dina Titus tweeted a picture of a piece of paper on her back with "I care" written on it to the First Lady.

On Thursday, the first lady set off from Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland for Arizona wearing a black shirt and white trousers, which she paired with black flats.

It is understood Mr Trump's visit could last until July 15, although the exact date will be dependent on his planned summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. A total of 121 kids are being held there, including 81 separated from their parents.

Most of those children crossed the border by themselves, but more than 2,000 were separated from their parents under the administration's "zero tolerance" policy for undocumented border crossers.

Melania Trump is headed back to Texas - and it's safe to guess which item won't make it on her packing list this time.

"We come here as a peaceful protest", said Vannia Moreno.

She traveled to Tucson, Ariz., where she visited a Customs and Border Protection facility and participated in a roundtable discussion with Border Patrol, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the U.S. Marshals Service and a local rancher.

Amid the backlash against the policy, the first lady offered public expressions of sympathy for immigrant children.

EU's Juncker says backing of Irish Brexit position will not change
This week the European Union warned that more work was needed on how to deal with the 300-mile frontier post-Brexit. They also call for "further clarity from the United Kingdom as regards its position on the future relationship".

Mr Trump last week signed an executive order to halt the separation of families at the border, at least for a few weeks, but the order did not address the reunification of families already separated.

Tucson is about two hours from the US-Mexico border.

East Wing communications director Stephanie Grisham said the first lady's goal is to "learn and educate herself" about issues at the border, first hand, from those on the front lines and thank them for the sometimes unsafe work they do.

There she visited a center now housing 121 children, including 33 aged five or under and four babies with their mothers.

Launched in May, the first lady's "Be Best" campaign is created to teach children about "the importance of social, emotional, and physical health".

"It's great to be here", Trump said to the group.

A staffer at the facility said the children had been there, on average, 48 days.

One Border Patrol agent told the first lady that "as a mother it hurts to see the children".

However, Melania could visit a school in the United Kingdom as part of her "Be Best" campaign and talk about the danger of cyberbullying, a source familiar with the talks said. The girl then gave the first lady a high five, and the pair fist-bumped.
