LA Mayor Eric Garcetti to visit Texas detention center, condemn family separation

The jacket is made by Zara and costs $39, according to the Daily Mail.

Her tour of a Border Patrol intake center and a facility holding about 60 migrant children ages 5 to 17 will put a spotlight on a crisis created by President Donald Trump's decision to press criminal charges against everyone caught crossing the border illegally.

Melania Trump's spokeswman Stephanie Grisham said in a statement: "It's a jacket".

"We all know they're here without their families, and I want to thank you for your hard work, your compassion and your kindness that you're giving them in these difficult times", she added.

Trump had come under pressure to stop the practice, including from GOP allies and the first lady herself, following a public outcry sparked by widespread images of children held in fence-like structures.

Mrs Trump's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham lambasted USA media on Twitter for focusing on her fashion choice.

President Trump supported this trip but he didn't send her.

Melania Trump went to Texas to visit a detention center for migrant children-not one of the converted Walmarts that houses children who were yanked away from their parents under the Trump administration's "zero tolerance policy", but a detention center nonetheless. "We are the community that is the poster child for immigration and bi-cultural relations and has been for over 400 years".

The students are among 58 at the Upbring New Hope Children's Center, where Mrs. Trump made a surprise visit Thursday.

The order specifies that migrants entering the USA with children will not be kept together if there's a fear for the child's welfare. Trump had said only Congress could fix the problem and he specifically pointed a finger at Democrats.

"I like to dream that Melania chooses her ensembles just to piss off liberals", reads one representative tweet following the stiletto backlash.

Mrs Trump met doctors, social workers and those providing medical and educational services to some of the 2,300 children split from their families on the US-Mexico border.

"And I also like to ask you how I can help these children to reunite with their families as quickly as possible", Trump, 48, said during a roundtable discussion with employees at the Upbring New Hope Children's Shelter.
