Melania Trump Returns to U.S.-Mexico Border Following Jacket Uproar

25 arrested in Los Angeles for protest against US Attorney General - Xinhua | English.news.cn Jeff Sessions Jokes About Family Separations Amid Controversy Over U.S. Border Policy

She is expected to have a briefing with border officials and local ranchers before touring a short-term holding facility where families are being separated, CNN reported.

Castro said her group was pushing for the immediate reunification of separated families, for an end to Trump's immigration policies and for the abolishing of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the agency in charge of deportations. "There was so much anticipation about what she might wear - would she be sending another message?" fashion expert Brooke Jaffe told Inside Edition.

During last Thursday's visit to a detention centre in McAllen in Texas, Melania said she wanted to see the children reunited with their families quickly.

But Mr Trump undercut the no-message message by tweeting that his wife was saying she really does not care about the "fake news" media.

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.

For her second trip to the border to visit the border since the family separation crisis, Melania Trump has gone back to basics. She blamed Democrats in Congress for not changing immigration laws in ways that would keep migrant families out of the country in the first place.

With the world watching as she gets ready for her second visit, we wonder how she will carry herself, especially given the situation she is now checking-in on was created in the aftermath of her husband's "zero tolerance" immigration policy.

"She wasn't able to visit a DHS facility, and she wants to learn from the people on the front lines at the border", Grisham told reporters. "She's advocating for quality care for these children under hard circumstances", Stephanie Grisham told reporters.

After a round-table discussion, during which the first lady heard from officials who work along the border, the first lady was given a tour of the US Customs and Border Protection Facility in Tucson.

Southwest Key is a nonprofit that runs 26 immigrant shelter facilities for children across Texas, Arizona and California. On Tuesday, a federal judge ordered that thousands of migrant chilren and their parents be re-united within 30 days-or less if the child is under 5.

Immigration authorities have separated about 2,300 children from their parents in recent weeks, sparking global outrage as images and recordings of weeping children emerged. The order poses logistical problems for the administration, and it was unclear how it would meet the deadline.
