Melania Visits The Border
First Lady Melania Trump has been following the terrible situation at the border closely. She took that to the next level Thursday when she visited the border to assess the situation.

According to Fox News:

First lady Melania Trump on Thursday visited a child detention center in Texas that houses minors who entered the country illegally -- in the wake of her husband’s executive order that ended the practice of separating families.

Mrs. Trump visited the Upbring New Hope Children’s Center, after she was reported to have been a force in getting the president to act in the wake of a days-long controversy surrounding the effects of the Department of Justice’s “zero tolerance” policy.

The first lady said earlier through her spokeswoman that she "hates" to see families separated at the border.

A White House official followed up Wednesday, saying Mrs. Trump had been making her opinion known to the president that he needed to act to keep migrant families together.

Melania thanked the workers who are caring for the children while at a roundtable at the facility. The First Lady is taking a stand on this issue. This is a new move for FLOTUS who usually doesn't discuss political issues publicly.
