First lady Melania Trump's 'I don't care' jacket causes a stir

First lady Melania Trump's 'I don't care' jacket causes a stir

"It's a jacket", Stephanie Grisham, Melania Trump's spokeswoman, told reporters.

Third-graders at the facility welcomed the first lady with a large paper American flag they'd signed taped to a wall. With the words, "Welcome!" The practice set off an outcry from all corners of the world, with the images and sounds of crying children dominating the news. It provides $25 billion for Trump's wall, restrictions on legal immigration and language requiring the Homeland Security Department to keep migrant families together while they're being processed for illegal entry to the U.S.

Children were allegedly made to take psychiatric drugs while being told the pills were vitamins.

The first lady thanked the staff for their "heroic work" and asked them to reunite the children with their families as quickly as possible.

Even if a bill clears the House, it would face an uncertain future in the Senate, where lawmakers are considering different measures and where Republicans would need at least nine senators from the Democratic caucus to join them to ensure any bill could overcome procedural hurdles.

Jewish Action, a campaign group that attended the protests, posted a video of a group of around four children "as young as five" being led into a auto outside the airport.

"We're going to have to release (families) under what's called the catch-and-release program", Judd said.

Although family separation is over, Sixth Presbyterian Reverend Vince Kolb said the fight is just beginning.

Plans for her to visit a second facility where children housed in cages were seen by The Associated Press last week were canceled because of flooding there.

According to another lawsuit, migrant children say they were forcibly administered drugs at the Shiloh Treatment Center near Houston, Texas.


"We're suspending prosecutions of adults who are members of family units until ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) can accelerate resource capability to allow us to maintain custody", the official said.

"We're not there yet but we're working on it", she said.

Arbulu said it's unclear whether that age will continue to drop as more children come to MI.

Earlier in the day, though, the first lady's attire sent a different message. "We're all bothered by it". "She supports family reunification".

The rejected compromise bill would have granted no pathway to citizenship for young "Dreamers" who arrived in the country illegally as children, curbed legal immigration and bolstered border security.

Melania Trump says her visit with migrant children has "impacted me greatly". The official refused to be identified discussing Trump's private conversations with his wife. Some of the children are younger than 1 year old. "I signed a very good executive order yesterday, but that's only limited".

The trip to Texas was the most high-profile public appearance Melania Trump had made since undergoing a surgical procedure for a kidney condition on May 14.

Photos taken as she boarded the plane at Andrews airbase didn't capture the jacket's full text, but it seems to be the same as the one that costs $39 and is available from the Zara website.

Another Republican, Representative Joe Wilson, announced he would support the legislation after meeting with Trump, who he said was persuasive.
