First lady makes surprise visit to Texas detention centers

Wow. It's really come to this, huh? The words are spelled out in white, graffiti-style lettering across the back of the jacket, which retailed for $39 at Zara. Someone must have pulled her aside to talk some sense into her while she was on the plane, because she appeared to remove the tone-deaf garment by the time she landed.

By the time Melania Trump was in front of the children, she had taken off the jacket. During her visit, Mrs. Trump toured a children's shelter and attended a briefing on the status of immigrant children.

Many have praised Trump for seeming to diverge from Donald Trump's attitude on separating children from their families.

In a dramatic reversal of his previous stance, Mr Trump signed an executive order to keep families together at the border.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio says that separated immigrant children still don't know when they will see their parents again. Trump's executive order did not resolve that issue, Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson said in a news conference.

Mrs. Trump visited the Upbring New Hope Children's Center, after she was reported to have been a force in getting the president to act in the wake of a days-long controversy surrounding the effects of the Department of Justice's "zero tolerance" policy.

"Thank you @POTUS for taking critical action ending family separation at our border", Ivanka wrote, referring to the acronym for president of the United States.

More than 2,300 children, some as young as 8 months, have been detained by the government in recent weeks as part of the president's "zero-tolerance" policy on illegal immigration.

When asked what message the jacket meant to send, spokesperson Stephanie Grisham said: "It's a jacket".

President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday titled "Affording Congress an Opportunity to Address Family Separation", meant to end the practice of separating children from their parents at the us border, while maintaining the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" policy regarding illegal entry into the United States.

Now, let's dispense with the fact that it seems like a slogan which might come emblazoned on a pencilcase in 2005 alongside a picture of Emily the odd, and consider the fact that she's wearing it en route to a place where children are being incarcerated. She had on the same shoes when she visited hurricane flood zones in Texas past year.

Mrs Trump was on her way to meet migrant children separated from their parents in Texas at the border when she was first spotted in the jacket.

And one wonderful person turned the social media frenzy around the jacket into an opportunity to raise awareness for people in need.
