Trump tells federal agencies to reunite families at border; Melania visits region

Detainees are seen inside a facility where tent shelters are being used to house separated family members at the Port of Entry Thursday

She didn't appear to be wearing the jacket when she arrived in Texas.

The first lady, 48, made headlines when she sported a Zara jacket with the message, "I Really Don't Care, Do U?' written on the back in bold white letters while en route to meet with the children in Texas on Thursday, June 21".

The legislative drama marked a major embarrassment for President Donald Trump's party in Congress. President Donald Trump twisted the media's attacks back on them. In public appearances, the first lady has worn designs by Dolce & Gabbana (remember her $51,500 D&G jacket at the G-7 summit in Italy?), Del Pozo, Christian Dior, Emilio Pucci, Givenchy and Valentino, often with daringly high Christian Louboutin heels.

Known for her wardrobe of top end designer fashionwear, the First Lady picked a 35 euro coat from Zara to travel to the airport. While the visit shows Trump is making an effort to be involved with the care of the children, her jacket choice sent a confusing message.

First lady Melania Trump wore a jacket with a surprising message on it when flying to a migrant children's shelter in Texas on Thursday. The facility, operated by Lutheran Social Services of the South and contracted by the Department of Health and Human Services, is a former nursing home-turned-shelter that now houses almost 60 children between the ages of 12 and 17. "No matter how you cut it, it leads to separation ultimately".

Melania Trump flew to Texas on today to tour a child detention facility.

Mrs Trump asked many questions, seeking assurances that they are being properly cared for. "She thinks that it's important that children stay with their families".

At the facility the first lady talked with staff about how the children were being treated and asked how she could help. She was told that children are allowed to make two calls, with officials noting there is a process to verify they are in fact speaking to family. "Nice to meet you".

President Donald Trump ordered an end to the separation of migrant children from their parents on the USA border on Wednesday, reversing a tough policy under heavy pressure from his fellow Republicans, Democrats and the worldwide community.

Ivanka Trump, a White House adviser who is an advocate in the White House for women and families, has not spoken out publicly on the zero tolerance policy at the border which has separated hundreds of children from their parents or adult guardians. I feel very strongly about it.

U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee in Los Angeles, who oversees the Flores settlement, rejected a similar argument by President Barack Obama's administration in 2015 to extend detentions of families.

Trump's administration continues to battle the crisis prompted by his decision to arrest every illegal border crosser. "We're looking to keep families together", he told journalists earlier this week. Video footage of children sitting in cages and an audiotape of wailing children had sparked anger as the images were broadcast worldwide.

World leaders, senior Democrats and Republicans, the United Nations and religious leaders have united to speak out against the damaging policy.
