Melania Trump Spokeswoman Responds to 'I Really Don't Care' Jacket Report

U.S. first lady Melania Trump boards an Air Force plane before traveling to Texas to visit facilities that house and care for children taken from their parents at the U.S. -Mexico border June 21, 2018, at Joint Base Andrews, Maryland. Trump's surprise trip to Texas was an opportunity for her to get a first-hand glimpse at the conditions where immigrant children are held as a result of President Donald Trump's "zero tolerance" immigration policy, which has resulted in the separation of thousands of children from their parents.

"It's a jacket", her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, said in a statement to Business Insider. She supports family reunification.

It's not clear how this was allowed to slip through the careful WH protocols but it's a mistake on the part of her staff.

"Trump asked several questions including how many times the children speak with their families".

As for this visit, Trump was guided around by the Upbring CEO, Dr. Kirk Senske, who told the First Lady: "We're honored to show you our shelter".

Melania Trump is visiting two Texas facilities housing some of the more than 2,300 migrant children sent by the United States government after their families entered the country illegally.

When Mrs. Trump visited, the kids were in the middle of classes.

"Be kind and nice to other, OK?" In May, Trump unveiled her "Be Best" platform, which outlined three predominant avenues of focus: health and well being; kindness and safety online; and highlighting the effects of the opioid crisis on children and families.

Her second scheduled stop was to the Ursula Border Patrol Processing Center, a Customs and Border Patrol intake center.

Facility officials said that there were 55 children at the facility, most within the 12-17 age range although they are licensed to care for children as young as six. Migrants typically spend a few days in these types of intake facilities, before being transferred.

Grisham told reporters on the trip that the visit was the first lady's idea, and she planned on visiting before the president signed his executive order.
