Melania Trump arrives in Arizona to visit migrants-system

The First Lady, Melania Trump met with members of the U.S. customs and border protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement Thursday morning during her second visit in recent days at the border to Mexico in the midst of a mounting immigration crisis.
At a round table with representatives of the vicinity of Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona, Mrs Trump, expressed their concern for the children and families who came to the U.S. southern border from Central America, but also added their support for the CBP and ICE agents along the border.

“I know how dangerous it is, and it is difficult,” she said. “I Appreciate Your Work.”
She added: “I’m here to support you and my help, what can I”, on “behalf of the children and the families.”
During the round table, asked the first lady, the officials on the number of children coming across the border alone, your age and how you maintained before you head out on tour in an immigration facility in Arizona.
This was the first lady’s second visit to the border to cross as many weeks as part of the White House’s response to the ongoing humanitarian crisis, with thousands of migrants trying, and in the United States illegally.
Ms. Trump previously traveled to the border town of McAllen, Texas, with the officials there deal with detained families. She also met with children at one of the facilities.
But this trip was overshadowed by a coat the first lady wore, and from Texas, said on the back: “I don’t know really don’t care, do u?”
The first lady’s spokeswoman said it was only a jacket, no hidden message, but interest in her fashion choice was a distraction from Ms. Trump’s journey. Her husband, President Donald Trump, undercut the non-message message, via Twitter, that his wife was, and said they don’t really care about the “fake news” media.
This time, the first woman boarded her plane wearing a black T-shirt and white pants for the flight.
Mrs Trump traveled in the midst of the turmoil about her husband’s hard-line approach to immigration, and evidence of the increasing urgency to play as is.
More than 2,300 children were separated from their parents at the border in recent weeks, and some were commissioned by the government, women’s shelters, hundreds of miles away from their parents.
The President last week, under an executive order signed to stop the separation of families on the border, at least for a few weeks, but the order are separated on the reunification of families.
A Federal judge on Tuesday ordered that thousands of children to be reunited with a migrant background, and parents, within 30 days-and earlier, when the youngster is younger than five years. The order provides logistical problems for the administration, and it was unclear how it would be to meet the deadline.
