Melania Trump has just made a surprise appearance at the Souther Border in a visit to the child detention centers.
First lady Melania Trump on Thursday visited a child detention center in Texas that houses minors who entered the country illegally -- in the wake of her husband’s executive order that ended the practice of separating families.
Mrs. Trump visited the Upbring New Hope Children’s Center, after she was reported to have been a force in getting the president to act in the wake of a days-long controversy surrounding the effects of the Department of Justice’s “zero tolerance” policy.
The first lady said earlier through her spokeswoman that she "hates" to see families separated at the border.
“We all know they are here without their families and I want to thank you for your hard work compassion and kindness you are giving them in these difficult times,” Mrs. Trump told a roundtable of workers at the Texas center.
President Trump, meanwhile, said at a Cabinet meeting in Washington that his wife was at the border "because it really bothered her to look at this and be seeing it, as it bothered me and it bothered everyone at this table."
The president continued, however, to stress the importance of border security. "They walk through Mexico like it's Central Park. It's ridiculous," he said. "Mexico is doing nothing except taking our money and sending us drugs."
