Melania Trump Heads Back to Border, Without Her Jacket Distraction This Time

Melania Trump Heads Back to Border, Without Her Jacket Distraction This Time

This time, however, she's apparently traveling without a controversial wardrobe item.

Melania Trump is due to go back to the southern border on Thursday, to visit immigration centers housing apprehended migrants. Last week, her critics blasted her trip to visit immigrant children that the government had separated from their parents. However, it's not clear what will happen to the 2,000-plus children who have already been taken from their parents.

According to her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham, Melania was fully vetted during her immigration process.

She said border agents worked with compassion, removing them from the unsafe parts of the border and giving the children food, water, clothing, and toys to help comfort them.

For her second trip to the border to visit the border since the family separation crisis, Melania Trump has gone back to basics.

The trip follows a visit last week to the border town of McAllen, Texas to a shelter for children separated from their parents.

The choice baffled the Internet and spawned a slew of memes about what the first lady, a former model, may have meant. Her spokeswoman said it was just a jacket, with no hidden message.

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.

She is then expected to tour the Tucson Coordinating Center, a short-term holding facility for migrants, before touring an intelligence center, the dispatch said.

The children, meanwhile, remain separated from their parents.

The first lady arrived today in Tucson, Ariz., where she held a roundtable discussion with officials from Border Patrol, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the U.S. Marshals Service and a local rancher.

Protesters spent Thursday morning outside a facility for detained children in Tucson that's operated by the nonprofit Southwest Key.

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