Melania travels to Texas border to visit child detention center

Melania travels to Texas border to visit child detention center

Is Melania Trump sending a message with her fashion choice while visiting a children's detention center at the United States and Mexico border on Thursday (June 21)?

Here's the thing: The jacket decisions made by the first lady aren't as big or as important a story as the crisis along the border. Earlier this week, she said that she "hates to see children separated from their families", according to Grisham.

First lady Melania Trump visits the Upbring New Hope Children Center, run by the Lutheran Social Services of the South, in McAllen, Texas, June 21, 2018.

"I'm glad I'm here and I'm looking forward to seeing the children", Melania said at a roundtable discussion with social workers and government officials.

As if Melania Trump and her husband were not already in the media spotlight when it comes to the President's harsh policy to separate children from their parents on our southern border, the First Lady may have just made things quite a bit worse for herself.

"Star Wars" standalone spinoff movies reportedly put on hold by Lucasfilm
It was also recently announced that Logan director James Mangold had been tapped to helm a Boba Fett movie , but there's no word on that project's status.


Images and recordings of distressed children held in enclosures akin to cages have sparked global fury.

Remember the $70,000 Dolce & Gabbana jacket Mrs Trump wore to the G7 first ladies meeting in Sicily previous year, or the stilettos she wore last August to visit hurricane victims. She wanted to see as close to what she had been seeing on TV.

One leg of the trip - a visit to a border patrol processing centre - was scrapped due to flooding.

"We all know they are here without their families", the first lady said during a roundtable discussion at Upbring New Hope Children's Center.

Grisham is referencing the backlash that exploded when the first lady was mocked for wearing sky-high stilettos as she headed to Texas after Hurricane Harvey in August. Another told Trump they were learning how to celebrate the Fourth of July. The president says that "traffickers are making a fortune" and its all thanks to loopholes he says are the fault of Democrats that exist in the immigration system.

Where in the world is Melania Trump?

One thing that stood out during her visit was her jacket, which had the words "I Really Don't Care, Do You?" inscribed on it. "Do U?" - a cryptic message that sent the internet ablaze.

On the other side of the political aisle, former first lady Michelle Obama routinely caught grief from some critics for going sleeveless.

"Right, it's definitely not hidden", Colbert shot back.

Trump makes fashion choices deliberately and strategically.
