I just saw this on tv.
Melanie is in Texas visiting a detention center. Right now she's with some teens.

Wonder if trump will too.

here's one article.....

Melania Trump makes surprise visit to child center in Texas in wake of uproar

WASHINGTON – First lady Melania Trump is visiting a migrant child shelter in Texas on Thursday making the surprise visit to Texas the day after President Donald Trump reversed his policy of separating children from parents crossing the border either illegally or seeking asylum.

A statement from Mrs. Trump’s communications director, issued after Mrs. Trump was already in McAllen, Texas, said she made the trip “to take part in briefings and tours at a nonprofit social services center for children who have entered the United States illegally and a customs and border patrol processing center. Her goals are to thank law enforcement and social services providers for their hard work, lend support and hear more on how the administration can build upon the already existing efforts to reunite children with their families.”


note you should place the source in the OP

Interesting topic.

😎

I really figured it was only a matter of time before she got involved. And good on her as she too is an immigrant as well as a mother. She needed her movement and her platform and maybe this is it.

I don't think anyone including Donald Trump wants to see people who attempt to enter this country legally treated as criminals. I don't think Trump who is a father himself and husband to an immigrant wants to see their families broken up.

Fact is this is a political football being tossed back and forth while real changes need to be made to immigration. Fact is there are A LOT of people taking advantage of America's milk and honey and lawmakers need to correct this and make changes.

While the law has been in place for a while Trump and his family are showing their compassion and maybe will get a break they so deserve in the eyes of the MSM. Although I don't like him attempting to use an EO to cover for the job law makers on both sides should be doing.

This is a very good thing. But if they knew ahead of time everyone knows that that place will be in tip top order. What I would like to see is her or Trump go live and make a surprise visit with no one knowing ahead of time. But I doubt something like has ever happened. But still good for her.

Good for her to go check things out for herself and make up her own mind.

I really have respect for her. The amount of underserved abuse she and her child have had to endure is unbelievable. I expected her to visit the detention centers at some point, good for her.

I agree with you, but I doubt this is possible due to the security arrangements that must be made ahead of time.

Part of the EO stated money would be allocated to build or improve facilities. Hopefully she will spend enough time there to make sure these immigrants know that regardless of whether we can grant them legal entry or not that we care about their wellbeing.

You're assuming it's not a "surprise visit".

That would be an amazing thing for a first lady to take on. I hope she does to.

While she is a polyglot, Spanish is not one of the languages in which she is fluent:


While Melania was not the focal point of this election cycle, it is interesting to note that she speaks five languages including Slovenian, English, French, Serbian, and German. Being that her husband will be spending time with dignitaries from across the globe, Melania’s linguistic abilities may come in handy at White House functions and events. This makes her also the first First Lady whose first language was not English and also mark the first First Lady who was fluent in more than two languages


Melania Trump Makes History As First Immigrant First Lady, Fluent In Five Languages

Now that being said, I would not be surprised at all to learn that she has picked up some Spanish since the election.

Good on you for giving props to the first lady!

I didn’t even think about the security aspect. But yes hopefully and I am sure she will show the children that we do care. I also really hope they have an education program that can help the kids and parents to know how to do what they did but in a legal way. And I also hope that they spread that info to friends and family as to not see them end up making the journey only to be detained. It is sad but the law is the law.

Read the post above yours and it makes perfect sense that such a thing is not possible.

I already did and it's not proof of anything. These detention centres are extremely high security to begin with.

I'm not saying that it was a surprise visit or not but the possibility is not that far fetched.

Again, assumptions are just assumptions.

Remember that Senator who recently went to have a look? He got turned away by security. Maybe Melania wanted to see what would happen if she turned up unannounced. Just a thought.

Charm offensive ?
I'm sure pictures of his wife at a refugee centre are preferable to him to pictures and video of crying kids in cages.

It is not out of the realm of possibility but extremely unlikely especially in these times. And ya I did see that whole ordeal, but he is not the First Lady.
