Melania Trump expected to visit west Phoenix shelter for migrant children Thursday

The center was set up to house unaccompanied child migrants who had crossed the border over the previous months

This time, Trump travels amid upheaval over her husband's hardline approach to immigration. This time, she chose less controversial apparel than her last trip, which was overshadowed by a jacket.

More than 2,000 children remain in the custody of the Office of Refugee Resettlement, an agency within the Department of Health and Human Services.

Mrs. Trump will tour a "short-term holding facility" and will take a private tour of an intelligence center, her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, told reporters.

She said border agents worked with compassion, removing them from the risky parts of the border and giving the children food, water, clothing, and toys to help comfort them.

First lady Melania Trump wore a jacket that read "I really don't care, do u?" as she boarded a flight Thursday to a facility housing migrant children separated from their parents.

The choice baffled the Internet and spawned a slew of memes about what the first lady, a former model, may have meant. Her spokeswoman said it was simply "a jacket" with "no hidden message".

The Trump administration's policy of separating children from immigrant parents caught crossing the border illegally has triggered enormous political pressure and public outrage across the country and the world.

A Seattle-based immigrant rights group sued on Monday on behalf of detained asylum-seekers in Washington state who have been separated from their children. Another classroom had five cribs lined up against a wall. Adding to the confusion: a court ruling says that children can not be detained for more than 20 days, which means they would still have to be removed from their parents even if they stay together initially.

Since the ruling, Grisham said Thursday, the first lady is "anxious to learn how they're implementing the new process".

He said that while USA officials might have been characterized as "cruel" or "heartless", he hoped to show her "the amount of care that goes in to the families, the children of the people we encounter here".

Anticipating a possible trip to Phoenix, protesters also gathered outside a Southwest Key facility in the city's west side.

While most of the focus has been on President Trump over the course of the last three weeks, as Americans fight back against what they believe is an unjust policy of separating children from their parents along our southern border, Attorney General Jeff Sessions was actually the one who announced this policy. A federal judge in San Diego has ordered the government to act quickly to reunite children with their families. It's not clear yet how the administration will meet the deadline.
