First lady Melania Trump arrived in Arizona on Thursday for a visit to an immigration center, her second trip to a border state to see such facilities. Then, according to the White House press pool, she will tour the Tucson Coordinating Center, a short-term holding facilities.

"She cares about children deeply and when the news started to hit I think she was very concerned and wanted to make sure the kids are being well taken-care of", Grisham said during the trip to Tucson.

She did not wear the jacket Thursday.

By the time First Lady Melania Trump rolled up to a child-migrant shelter as part of a swarm of SUVs, police cruisers, and cops on motorcycles, the Phoenix activists were ready to meet her.

The decision provoked a storm of criticism and speculation as to whether it was directed at anyone from her husband, to the media to the children to no one at all, and spawned copy-cat jackets from people saying they did care.

On Thursday, the first lady set off from Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland for Arizona wearing a black shirt and white trousers, which she paired with black flats. Sarat said that if Melania Trump really cared about the children, she would listen to their families to learn why they are fleeing their homes to the U.S.

Agents said that children more frequently were apprehended unaccompanied at the border. She blamed Democrats in Congress for not changing immigration laws in ways that would keep migrant families out of the country in the first place.

The first lady's visit to Phoenix stemmed from the crisis surrounding President Trump's "zero-tolerance" prosecution policy of migrant families who cross the U.S. -Mexico border.

Anticipating a trip to Phoenix, protesters also gathered outside the Southwest Key facility in the city's west side.

Even though the policy has ended, there remain more than 2,000 immigrant children in government-contracted shelters that were separated from their parents at the border.

President Trump signed an executive order that halted the separation of migrant families last week.

Within hours of these remarks, a Federal Judge in California ruled that the Trump administration must reunite all children separated from their families within 30 days, and all children under the age of five, within 14 days. The order poses logistical problems for the administration, and it was unclear how it would meet the deadline.
