Melania Trump to Border Agents: ‘I Am Here to Support You’

More than 2,300 migrant children were separated from their parents after US President Donald Trump's administration began a "zero tolerance" policy last month, seeking to prosecute all adults who crossed the border illegally, including those travelling with children.

"I'm here to support you and give my help, whatever I can" on "behalf of children and the families", Mrs. Trump said as she sat down with officials at a U.S. Border Patrol facility in Tucson, Arizona- her first stop.

Melania Trump has returned to the Mexico-US border after her fashion faux pas last week when her jacket screamed 'I Really Don't Care, Do U?' Her fashion choice this time around was much more tasteful.

"And if you try to scale the fence, believe me, they'd be even too happy to have you arrested and separated from your children", he said, as the crowd clapped. She cares about children deeply.

The visit comes a week after Mrs. Trump travelled to the border town of McAllen, Texas, to meet with officials there dealing with detained families.

The first lady wore a controversial jacket on June 21 as she traveled to Texas. Then, according to the White House press pool, she will tour the Tucson Coordinating Center, a short-term holding facilities.

Sales tax invasion: Retailers drafted as tax collecters
The Trump administration backed South Dakota in the case, urging that Quill be overturned or at least limited to catalog sales. That decision had shielded retailers from tax-collection duties if they didn't have a physical presence in a state.

Judge: Separated families must be reunited within 30 days
The first lady also saw the photos from the border and heard the recordings of children being separated from their families. The warm reception that met Sessions inside the Millennium Biltmore Hotel marked a contrast to the scene outside.

This time, she was wearing simple white pants with a thin black track stripe running halfway up the side, a black boat neck top with a 3/4 sleeve (how Audrey Hepburn of her), and black flats. She is expected to visit centers housing immigrants apprehended at the border.

"She's anxious to learn how they're implementing the new process", Stephanie said, also revealing that Melania has spoken to her husband about the situation.

Customs and Border Protection commissioner Kevin K. McAleenan said he ordered border agents not to refer families to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution until the two agencies can reach an agreement on a policy that allows parents to be prosecuted without being separated from their children.

Melania took the jacket off before she arrived to her destination, but had it back on when she got back to D.C.

Within hours of these remarks, a Federal Judge in California ruled that the Trump administration must reunite all children separated from their families within 30 days, and all children under the age of five, within 14 days.
