The First Lady toured an immigration detention facility in Texas Thursday, speaking with workers and reporters and thanking them for “their hard work and compassion” during “difficult times.”
Melania Trump visited the region to get a “first-hand look” at the escalating crisis taking place along the United States’ southern border with Mexico, saying she was there “to learn about the facilities.”

“We all know they are here without their families, and I want to thank you for your hard work, your compassion, and your kindness you’re giving them in these difficult times,” said the First Lady.
“I’m here to learn about your facility, which I know you have children on a long-term basis. I’d also like to ask how I can help these children reunite with their families. Thanks again for all that you do,” added Mrs. Trump.
