The notoriously private former model is intentional about her wardrobe choices: the instantly-iconic white hat for the French state visit, her white suit at the State of the Union speech and the pussy bow blouse she donned after the "Access Hollywood" tape surfaced all sent a clear message. The facility is home to about 55 migrant teenagers.
Trump´s 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.
Mrs. Trump says time spent with the children reinforces the fact that they're in the situation "as a direct result of adult actions". "Be kind and nice to each other, OK", she said as she left one classroom at Upbring New Hope Children's Center and headed for another. The House on Thursday defeated a conservative immigration measure and delayed until next week a final vote on a compromise immigration bill.
Jacket by Zara from the Spring-Summer 2016 collection, with 'I really don't care do U?' slogan, was worn by first lady Melania Trump on June 21, 2018 during a visit to Texas to meet children taken from their parents at the U.S. -Mexico border.
A teen who bought the $39 hooded rain jacket (which I could no longer find on the Zara website) in a fit of fashionable rebellion wouldn't raise an eyebrow.
President Trump personally fulfilled that theory in his preferred medium: " 'I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?' written on the back of Melania's jacket, refers to the Fake News Media.
People shared on Twitter how shocked they were at the jacket's message and said they wondered why Melania wore the jacket at all, given the temperature and humidity in both D.C. and Texas, as well as the jacket's insensitive message. "There was no hidden message".
Grisham underscored that message in a tweet with the hashtags #SheCares and #ItsJustAJacket.
As the first lady boarded her plane from Andrews Air Force Base, she wore an olive green jacket. "Do u?" written on the back.
The Daily Mail first reported the jacket, which was spotted by the press traveling with the first lady but impossible to read without a long-range camera lens.
Third-graders at a facility housing migrant children separated from their parents welcomed first lady Melania Trump with a large paper American flag they'd signed.
The students are among 58 at the Upbring New Hope Children's Center, where Mrs. Trump made a surprise visit Thursday. The first lady's visit came the morning after President Donald Trump signed an executive order halting the practice of separating families that entered the USA illegally. Staff said the children, who are mostly from Guatemala, typically spend between 42 and 45 days at the facility, which is operated by a Lutheran social services organization contracted by the government.
"What is the goal of the House doing good immigration bills when you need 9 votes by Democrats in the Senate, and the Dems are only looking to Obstruct", Trump said in a tweet on Thursday as he renewed his call for a change in Senate rules to allow legislation to move with a simple majority. She referenced the incident in a statement sent to reporters Thursday. She was told the children there, most of whom are between the ages of 12 and 17, are usually "distraught" when they first enter.
"We see them as if they were our own", said Roy De La Cerda, the program director. Remember back in August when she walked across the tarmac at Joint Base Andrews in sky-high Manolo stilettos during the Texas flood crisis?
Later, President Donald Trump said the jacket's message was a shot at the media. However, his policy of criminally prosecuting illegal border-crossers remains. "She supports family reunification". She also said the first lady's visit with the children in Texas "impacted @flotus greatly".
