Melania Trump makes surprise visit to child detention center in Texas

Seeing images of'Tender Child detention centers reportedly played a role in President Trump signing an Executive Order reversing his migrant family separation policy

Her second scheduled stop was to the Ursula Border Patrol Processing Center, a Customs and Border Patrol intake center.

"I'm here to learn about your facility, to which I know you house children on a long-term basis".

Grisham also stated that the first lady believes that "the law should be followed" and "feels that everybody should enter the country legally".

"Now that an EO has been signed ending family separation at the border, it is time to focus on swiftly and safely reuniting the families that have been separated", she tweeted.

The Trump administration still faces legal challenges because of a court order that put a 20-day cap on how long immigration authorities may detain minors, and trigger fresh criticism of Trump's hardline immigration policies, which were central to his 2016 election campaign and now his presidency.

Trump also said that first lady Melania Trump visited detention centers at the border today because 'it really bothered her to be looking at this and seeing it'.

"We're going to have strong, very strong borders but we are going to keep the families together", Trump said Wednesday, according to the New York Times.

She told children to "be kind and nice to each other" as she left one classroom and said she wanted to lend her support to the children, and asked staff to reunite them with their families as quickly as possible. The words, "Welcome! First Lady" were written in black marker across the red and white bars.

"I didn't want my name attached to that", he said of the bill he decried as an amnesty for immigrants who are in the United States illegally.

"The Democrats are saying they care about the kids, they care about the DACA kids, they care about family separation, but when they're asked to vote and work together on a compromise, they're nowhere to be found", said Rep. Dave Brat, R-Va.

"We're essentially hiding behind the system and gridlock and using it as an excuse to dehumanize people and literally tear apart parents and children", he said. Children can not follow their family members or guardians into custody, so USA guidelines mandate that those children be separated - often from their parents.

The surprise trip "was 100 percent her idea", Melania Trump's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told reporters travelling with her to Texas.

The Trump administration's so-called "zero tolerance" policy has resulted in many people being taken into federal custody immediately after crossing the border.

The bill would provide President Donald Trump with $25 billion in border security including wall funding in exchange for a path to citizenship for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which Trump ended but has been held up in legal limbo.

The failure dealt an embarrassing blow to Republicans under intense pressure by Trump's administration to take the first legislative steps to address the issue.
