"I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" written on the back of Melania's jacket, refers to the Fake News Media.

Her spokeswoman told Business Insider that "there was no hidden message".

Mrs. Trump was going to visit the facilities herself, her spokeswoman said, because "she wants to see what's real".

First lady Melania Trump touched down in McAllen, Texas, Thursday making a publicly unannounced and hastily planned trip to get a first-hand look at the crisis affecting immigrant families at the U.S. border.

The first lady said in a written statement after she returned to the White House that the visit had "impacted me greatly".

In the past, the First Lady has worn designs by Christian Dior, Givenchy and Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, often paired with Christian Louboutin shoes.

The trip comes a day after President Trump signed an executive order ending his controversial policy of family separation for migrant families detained as they're crossing into the USA illegally at the southern border. On Wednesday, Trump signed an executive order calling for an end to the separation of families, but it is unclear what will happen to the children who already have been split apart from their families and, in some cases, sent to facilities around the country. "She thinks that it's important that children stay with their families", she said.

Mr Grieve also admitted that the amendment that will be debated this week had been watered down from its original version. He told the BBC: "I can't save the Government from getting into a situation where Parliament might disagree with it".

The images of Melania Trump sporting the olive green khaki jacket as she boarded a flight to Texas - which immediately went viral - surfaced as the White House struggles to calm global anger over the practice of splitting migrant children from their parents.

Melania Trump visited with migrant children Thursday during a brief stop at a Texas facility housing some of the youth separated from their parents as her husband's administration prosecutes adults who enter the US illegally from Mexico.

Yep, she seriously did that, and the world can't quite handle what they're seeing.

The reporters in the press pool that accompanied her apparently didn't see it; photographers did notice it and brought it up with Grisham later during the surprise visit to McAllen, Texas, to meet children separated from their parents at the Texas border with Mexico.

"I would also like to ask you how I can help these children to reunite with their families as quickly as possible". She told children to "be kind and nice to each other" as she left another classroom. However, his policy of criminally prosecuting illegal border-crossers remains.

"We all know they're here without their families, and I want to thank you for your hard work". There was her distance from Trump in the wake of the stories her husband had an affair with a porn star.
