Visit by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions Sparks Downtown Protest

Under Obama if children crossed the border with their parents they were only separated if officials suspected the adult of human trafficking smuggling posing a national security risk or when their parenthood could not be verified

Visit by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions Sparks Downtown Protest

The first lady arrived today in Tucson, Ariz., where she held a roundtable discussion with officials from Border Patrol, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the U.S. Marshals Service and a local rancher.

The inappropriate clothing choice has sparked outrage and inspired other statement clothing, and is at odds with the first lady's insistence that she "hates to see children separated from their families".

So, when she showed up to Southwest Key facility (a non-profit that runs 26 immigrant shelters) in Phoenix, she was greeted by protesters and a very pointed burn of her husband.

The first lady's first trip to the region had been overshadowed by a jacket she wore on the way to and from the border town of McAllen, Texas, that had a baffling message on the back: "I really don't care, do u?". The first was on the Friday evening following her trip to Texas, when she attended a Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) event in Virginia.

Needless to say, many people concerned about the livelihood of detained immigrants aren't viewing Melania's trips as anything more than a PR stunt to cover up the blood on her hands.

"She wasn't able to visit a DHS facility, and she wants to learn from the people on the front lines at the border", Grisham told reporters. But the first lady's husband undercut the no-message message by tweeting that she was saying she really doesn't care about the "fake news" media. Her jacket said in white letters on the back: "I really don't care, do u?"

While one might have expected Sessions to try and deflate and deflect the current turmoil surrounding the administration's child separation policy, especially given the fact that protests were underway outside the venue, he did the exact opposite.

Defense Secretary James Mattis said Monday the Department of Defense will build tent camps at two US military bases in Texas to house people who attempt to cross the border illegally.

Seventeen states, including Washington, New York and California, are suing President Donald Trump's administration in an effort to force officials to reunite migrant families who have been separated at the US-Mexico border. On Tuesday, a federal judge ordered that thousands of migrant chilren and their parents be re-united within 30 days-or less if the child is under 5.
