Hundreds of kids reunited with families since May

Side by side The First lady traveled with Alex Azar Secretary of Health and Human Services for the trip which was also to a border processing center

"I Really Don't Care, Do U?", was written in bold, capitalized white letters and to say that Americans were appalled by Melania's poor choice of fashion, given the situation, would soon prove to be a complete understatement.

It's a ZARA jacket that retails for about $40.

The first lady's visit comes as President Donald Trump's administration has separated members of families that cross United States borders illegally, sending thousands of children to holding camps around the country.

"I'd also like to ask you how I can help these children to reunite with their families as quickly as possible", she said.

The first lady instructed her staff to make the trip happen on Tuesday, one day before her husband signed an executive order to keep family units intact.

While many critiqued her poor style choice that gave off a sign of apathy, Trump's communications director, Stephanie Grisham, said the parka did not hold a hidden message.

All the media could talk about, however, was Melania's jacket, a $40 olive green raincoat from Zara that had the odd message written on the back.

Post her visit to Texas immigration centre, Melania tweeted, "Today's visit to #Texas to spend time with children & thank the many hardworking individuals helping to care for them was very meaningful". There was no hidden message. "She was concerned about it".

Over the weekend, Mrs Trump's spokesman said she wanted to see the ongoing controversy surround the Trump administration's policy of separating refugee families handled "with heart", suggesting she was opposed to her husband on the matter.

Melania Trump has come under fire over the freaky outfit she chose to wear to visit immigrant children in detention on the US-Mexico border.

The Trump administration previously had not said whether any hundreds of children who were separated from their families had been reunited.

So he reimagined the first lady's jacket to reflect the public outrage about families being ripped apart at the border. She was told the children there, most of whom are between the ages of 12 and 17, are usually "distraught" when they first enter.

Grisham is referencing the backlash that exploded when the first lady was mocked for wearing sky-high stilettos as she headed to Texas after Hurricane Harvey in August. She only wore the jacket when she boarded the plane, and not when she got off.

Ms Trump visited the Upbring New Hope Children's Shelter on Thursday, which is home to some 55 migrant children placed in the care of US Department of Health and Human Services.
