Trump's immigration order sparks confusion and deep concern - International

The White House said the first lady's goal was to thank law enforcement and social services providers. The facility is home to about 55 migrant teenagers.

"Spending time with them reinforces the fact that these kids are in this situation as a direct result of adult actions", she said.

Implementation of the family separation policy was put on hold after over 2,300 children have been separated from their guardians since May 5 due to the latter having crossed the US-Mexico border illegally.

Republicans will be considering two immigration bills, a conservative bill from Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and a more moderate proposal arranged by House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) which would offer DACA recipients a pathway to citizenship. She says half are boys and half are girls, and they range in age from age 5 to 12. "There was no hidden message".

Grisham underscored that message in a tweet with the hashtags #SheCares and #ItsJustAJacket.

Trump's order said the government would maintain a "zero tolerance" policy toward those who break the law, but the senior US official, asked to explain how the government would change enforcement practices, said Border Patrol agents were instructed Wednesday evening to stop sending parents with children to federal courthouses for prosecution.

She boarded her plane wearing a jacket which read "I really don't care". The first lady signed it as well.

The meeting comes as lawmakers on Capitol Hill are moving to vote on two immigration bills aiming to provide a legislative fix to the nation's existing issues at the US border.

At the same time, the Justice Department went to court in an attempt to overturn a decades-old settlement that limits to 20 days the amount of time migrant children can be locked up with their families.

Hitting back, Melania's spokeswoman told her husband to "govern with heart".

The first lady said she wanted to lend her support to the children, and asked staff to reunite them with their families as quickly as possible.

Elsewhere, Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam of Virginia ordered an investigation into claims by children at an immigration detention facility that they were beaten while handcuffed and locked up for long periods in solitary confinement, left nude and shivering in concrete cells. Their physical and mental states are immediately assessed, and they are given orientation.

Workers told the First Lady that the center deals primarily with unaccompanied minors. "She thinks that it's important that children stay with their families".

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump signed an order to stop the separations.

Lawyers filed a memorandum to a settlement in California that governs how children are handled when they are caught crossing the US border illegally. She learned the children are allowed a 10-minute phone call twice a week.

Customs and Border Protection is announcing a new practice aimed at keeping families apprehended at the border together following President Donald Trump's executive order.
