Why Melania Trump Is Facing Criticism for Her Latest Fashion Statement

U.S. Border Patrol agents take Central American asylum seekers into custody

At an immigration detention center, Trump made brief comments about her goals on the trip.

"It's a jacket. There was no hidden message", Stephan Grisham told reporters.

'There was no hidden message.

"I hope the media isn't going to choose to focus on her wardrobe".

As the temperature climbed to 80 degrees at Joint Base Andrews near Washington, Trump boarded her plane wearing an olive green coat that read, in white capital letters, "I really don't care". While the visit itself may have shown that she cares about what's taking place, following her husband's missteps (perhaps this is too lenient of a word), it was the jacket she wore in transit which will undoubtedly get most of the attention.

The first lady's visit comes as President Donald Trump's administration has separated members of families that cross USA borders illegally, sending thousands of children to holding camps around the country.

Trump's spokeswoman denied that the jacket had any special significance.

The settlement the DOJ addressed on Thursday, in the 1997 case of Flores vs. Reno, also states that children can not be detained longer than 20 days.




The first lady's appearance, which was kept secret until she touched down, came as the administration, facing questions over the well-being and whereabouts of thousands of children, sought to put a more humane lens on its policies.

A person familiar with the situation who did not want to be identified said he could clearly see lettering on the front of Trump's jacket that matches that of the Zara jacket seen in the blogger's images. They were transferred to a residential center near Dilley, Texas, where she was told that she and her family had a credible asylum claim, but that her sons would be taken to a shelter in NY while she remained in Texas.

Heather Reynolds, the nonprofit's director, says the three are among 12 immigrant children at the shelter who were separated from their parents under a Trump administration "zero tolerance" policy.

The Trump administration, meanwhile, has asked the Defense Department to provide space at military facilities by the end of the year to house 20,000 children who have arrived in the US without any adults.

She thanked the workers for their compassion, and said that she was looking forward to seeing the children.

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

Melania Trump was unable to escape controversy on the trip.
