But immigrants' advocates say this does not solve the problem and have accused the administration of not caring about the immigrants it is detaining.

The jacket cost $39 and is a product of Zara, a Spanish fashion retailer, from a previous season.

The "Outnumbered" panel reacted Friday to the media outcry, with Abby Huntsman questioning why Mrs. Trump wore the jacket in the first place after striking a compassionate note by visiting the detention center.

The price of the jacket also came into the spotlight as one user claimed the whole event was planned to distract the world from Donald Trump's policy.

Colbert responded to the comments from Grisham about there being "no hidden message".

Media personality Toure wondered in a Tweet whether Melania Trump or those around her gave much thought to the message on the jacket. "Do U?" on the back as she returns to Washington from a visit to the U.S. -Mexico border area in Texas, at Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, U.S., June 21, 2018. The reaction to the family separations prompted Trump to reverse course and sign an executive order to end the practice, although questions about its effectiveness remain.

If you've been lucky enough to avoid the internet entirely these past 24 hours, it said "I really don't care, do U?" on it.

And even Dictionary.com made a decision to publish a pointed tweet defining the word "indifference" and explaining its definition matched what it saw as the First Lady's message.

"It's a jacket", the First Lady's communications director, Stephanie Grisham, said Thursday in a statement to reporters. As she boarded a plane to Texas, she appeared to be wearing a Zara jacket with the astonishing caption: "I really don't care. She thinks that it's important that children stay with their families".

Mrs Trump donned the controversial jacket on Thursday, emblazoned with the words: "I really don't care, do u?"

It is not the first time Melania Trump's fashion choices have been criticized.

'Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!' Other messages shouted on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram: "Rise up" and "I have no idea what I'm doing".
