Immigrant Children: Week and Texas Shelter

immigrant children: The first lady's office offered no details about this week's planned trip, which was first reported by CNN. She may tour a migrant processing detention centre, which was slated to be part of her visit last week, according to Toronto Star. That leg of the trip was cancelled because of flood conditions, her office said. Trump last week made an unannounced trip to McAllen, Tex., where she visited a shelter for immigrant children, as her husband's zero-tolerance policy of separating the children of immigrants entering the country illegally was roiling the country. Last week, Trump spent time being briefed by the people running a Texas shelter and meeting some of the children being housed there. The trip, which was described a humanitarian one, was overshadowed by the controversy over a jacket the first lady wore while boarding her plane at Joint Base Andrews.
