United States judge orders migrant families to be reunited

Trump's spokeswoman declined to immediately release details about her planned stops.

She did not wear the jacket Thursday.

The first lady's office revealed Tuesday that she would be making another visit to a detention facility as the administration continues to face questions over the status of the more than 2,000 children separated from their parents due to the president's "zero tolerance" policy. Her husband, U.S. President Donald Trump, undercut the no-message message by tweeting that the white letters meant that Mrs. Trump doesn't care about the "fake news" media.

Demonstrators protested outside of a Southwest Key shelter for migrant kids in Phoenix as First Lady Melania Trump visited the shelter on Thursday.

In McAllen, Tex., where she first stopped on the border last week, she told the people running the Upbring New Hope Children's Shelter - where more than 50 children were being housed at the time - that she wanted to ensure that families were reunified. And while we don't condone her insensitive parka pick from last week, we do have to say we miss her bolder sartorial choices-who didn't love theorizing about that hat?


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

A spokeswoman said the jacket had no hidden message but it confused the public and distracted from the apparent aim of her trip-bringing awareness to the needs of immigrant children suffering under the family separation policy.

"We've really prevented instances of human trafficking where someone show up claiming to be a family unit and then we find out that the children are in no way", he said, "not even a close relation to the adult in custody". But Mrs. Trump instead met with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the agency that oversees the Border Patrol and customs officers.

Trump signed an executive order last week allowing children to be detained alongside their parents or guardians after visuals and audio went viral showing crying migrant children being separated from their parents along the southern border, which sparked outrage across the U.S. A judge has ruled that the youngest children must be returned to their parents within the next 15 days and all children reunited within a month, but some reports indicate that there is widespread confusion about where children are being held and what processes are in place to return them to their parents. The order poses logistical problems for the administration, and it was unclear how it would meet the deadline.
