'One interesting note here, even after this controversy erupted.Melania Trump put the jacket back on, just in time for the cameras, when she returned to Washington DC'. 'I did not like the sight of families being separated, ' he added.

The document was an executive order ending the practice of separating families at the USA border. "Congress must now act + find a lasting solution that is consistent with our shared values;the same values that so many come here seeking as they endeavor to create a better life for their families". She told facility directors that she wants to "ask you how I can help these children be reunited with their families as quickly as possible". But HHS has assessed four as prospective housing for children: Fort Bliss, Goodfellow Air Force Base and Dyess Air Force Base in Texas, and Little Rock Air Force Base in Arkansas.

Melania Trump sparked backlash by wearing a $39 jacket that says "I really don't care, do u?" on the way to her surprise visit to Texas to visit immigrant children.

President Donald Trump addressed wife Melania Trump's controversial wardrobe choice while visiting migrant children separated from their families at the U.S. -Mexico border.

The first lady landed in McAllen, Texas under a heavy downpour, her motorcade driving through deep water as it headed for the Upbring New Hope Children's Shelter, a federally-funded facility that houses around 60 children from Honduras and El Salvador, ages five to 17. "After today's important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn't going to choose to focus on her wardrobe", Grisham said.

Meanwhile, the mayors of about 20 USA cities gathered at a holding facility for immigrant children in the border city of El Paso.

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.

Stephanie Grisham, Melania's spokesperson, said the First Lady was keen to thank staff and have a look at the facilities for herself.

"It's important to recognize there's an injury and a trauma that you inflict on these children from separating them from their parents that can not be made up for by allowing them to play on a soccer field or making sure someone is there to read them a book", Omar Jadwat, the director of the ACLU's Immigrants Rights Project, told the PBS NewsHour. "She told him "I am headed down to Texas" and he was supportive".

The president tweeted that it was a message to the "fake news media".

But Grisham's statement posed more questions than it answered.

Shortly before Trump signed the executive order, a White House official revealed that Mrs. Trump had been voicing her opinion to the president for some time.
