First lady visits kids at Texas detention center

Melania Trump touched down in McAllen, Texas, on Thursday, June 21, in an unannounced trip to the border area to meet with immigrant children who have been separated from their families.

She says Present Donald Trump's executive order allowing immigrant kids to remain with their parents mentions how future illegal border crossing will be handled, but it doesn't address the more than 2,000 children who have already been separated since May. "Indefinitely detaining children with their families in camps is inhumane and will not make us safe", said Sen.

The White House has made a last-minute push to pass legislation amid the brewing border crisis prompted by the family separations that resulted on the US-Mexico border from Trump's "zero tolerance" immigration policy.

In a sign of the broadening scope of the crisis, the Department of Health and Human Services asked the Pentagon to prepare to house up to 20,000 unaccompanied migrant children on military bases, a U.S. official said.

In fact, airlines operating in America, including United and Frontier airlines, have protested against the Trump administration's family separation policy by deciding not to fly the separated immigrant children at the border. In a makeshift conference room, Mrs. Trump met with staff from New Hope, HHS and border patrol, asking several questions about the children's welfare and asking that the children be reunited with their families "as quickly as possible".

The political compromise the first lady had sought so far has not materialized.

"What is the objective of the House doing good immigration bills when you need 9 votes by Democrats in the Senate, and the Dems are only looking to Obstruct (which they feel is good for them in the Mid-Terms)", Trump said.

"She wants to see what's real", the first lady's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told CNN en route to Texas.

She said: "Mrs Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform".

"There is still some work to be done as we grapple with the immigration issues", Meadows said.

"We see them as if they were our own", said Roy De La Cerda, the program director.

When asked if the first lady supported the executive order, Grisham said Trump supports family reunification and will continue to "give her husband opinions on what she's thinking should happen".

But on Wednesday, Trump signed an executive order, putting an end to any more families being separated.

Lawyers filed a memorandum to a settlement in California that governs how children are handled when they are caught crossing the U.S. border illegally.
