Melania Trump returns to border state amid separation outcry

25 arrested in Los Angeles for protest against US Attorney General - Xinhua | English.news.cn

First lady Melania Trump talks with Rodolfo Karisch, chief patrol agent of the Tucson Sector Border Patrol, as she visits a U.S. Customs border and protection facility. During this trip, she will also tour Tucson Coordinating Center, a short-term holding facility, as well as the Department Of Homeland Security Facility.

In an effort to dampen the outcry over the detained children, first lady Melania Trump visited a detention centre in Texas. But the first lady's husband, President Donald Trump, undercut the no-message message by tweeting that his wife was saying she really doesn't care about the "fake news" media.

On Thursday, her spokeswoman said the first lady wanted to "learn" from those on the ground.

The visit is her second in a week to see the conditions where people, including children, are kept after entering the USA illegally.

During her visit to Tucson on Thursday, she said her interest in the roiling immigration issue centers on the children caught up in the system.

This time, Mrs Trump made a risk-averse fashion choice of a plain black sweater, white slacks and flat shoes when she boarded her jet at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. "So this is something that our people encounter on a daily basis, is seeing children that are put in, and families, in very risky situations".

Trump stirred an worldwide furor with a policy called "zero tolerance" that resulted in the government taking immigrant children from parents caught unlawfully crossing the USA border with Mexico. "She's advocating for quality care for these children under hard circumstances", Stephanie Grisham told reporters.

Southwest Key is a nonprofit that runs 26 immigrant shelter facilities for children across Texas, Arizona and California.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that while there had been no official change in the zero-tolerance policy, the reality was that the government does not have the ability to detain all of the families crossing the border illegally, the New York Times reported.

Protesters denounced Washington's immigration policy and separation practices at the US-Mexico border and chanted "Shame on Sessions" and "reunite", while others waved signs that bore slogans such as "Stop caging families" and "Stop separating families".

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. It's not clear yet how the administration will meet the deadline.
