Program Director Roy De La Cerda told the first lady that the mostly Guatemalan children typically stay at the center for an average of 42 to 45 days.

I think we were undervaluing pictures when we said they were worth 1000 words. "We don't like to see families separated", Trump said.
Melania's trip to Texas was cut short by heavy rain and flash flooding.
