June 21st, 2018

Melania Trump visits a children’s center near the US-Mexico border in McAllen, Texas Thursday.

Melania Trump has made an unannounced visit to the US-Mexico border a day after the president retreated on immigration policy and signed an executive order to end his policy of family separations amid enormous political pressure.

The first lady was taking part in briefings and attending a tour of a “nonprofit social services center for children who have entered the United States illegally and a customs and border patrol processing center”, according to a statement from her office.
