First Lady Melania Trump Makes Trip To Visit Border Detention Facilities

First Lady Melania Trump Makes Trip To Visit Border Detention Facilities

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

Mayors of major US cities who gathered Thursday at a holding facility for immigrant children at Texas' border with Mexico said President Trump has failed to address a humanitarian crisis of his own making with an executive order to halt the separation of minors as families are detained crossing the USA border illegally. The Trump order, an unusual reversal by him, moves parents with children to the front of the line for immigration proceedings but it does not end a 10-week-old "zero tolerance" policy that calls for prosecution of immigrants crossing the border illegally under the country's criminal entry statute. "She supports family reunification". A fraction of them were separated from their parents under the Trump administration's crackdown on illegal immigration into the US from Mexico.

New Hope staff reassured Mrs. Trump, who was accompanied by Health and Human Services secretary Alex Azar, that the children are assessed for physical and mental health issues when they enter the facility and are often distraught.

United States President Donald Trump signed an executive order Wednesday after an global outcry over his immigrant family separation policy at the southern border.

"I'd also like to ask you how I can help these children to reunite with their families as quickly as possible", she said. The words, "Welcome! First Lady" were written in black marker across the red and white bars.

Thank you for your heroic work that you do every day and what you do for those children.

"She wanted to see everything for herself", Grisham said.

Troubled Germany Look To Make A Statement Against Experienced Mexico
Loew probably had said a lot to his team at half-time and it showed with Germany pushing hard against Mexico in the second half. Germany hadn't been beaten in their opening World Cup match since 1982, which made Mexico's victory all the more impressive.


However, his policy of criminally prosecuting illegal border-crossers remains.

A Department of Homeland Security official told NBC News that the Ursula facility was the "epicenter" of the Trump administration's policy that separated more than 2,000 kids from their parents over the past few months.

Trump's solution is to imprison parents and children together.

"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", according to a statement from her spokeswoman.

"Doesn't feel great", Rep. Tom Cole, a member of the whip team and an ally of GOP leadership said about the prospects for passage. A Justice Department official was unable to clarify whether family separations would end immediately or when and how families now separated would be reunited.

"I was pleased the president took action yesterday to ensure families can remain together while we enforce our immigration laws", the Wisconsin Republican said at his weekly press conference.
