USA judge orders migrant families to be reunited

Saturday, 30 Jun, 2018

Melania Trump boarded a plane in Washington, D.C, Thursday morning en route to Arizona where she met with Border Patrol officials and visited a Phoenix shelter for migrant children.

"I want to thank you for all your hard work", she told border and immigration officials at a Customs and Border Patrol facility in Tucson, Arizona.

Although the Trump administration has ended family separation at the border, there are still children who have yet to be reunited with their families.

Grisham told reporters that Mrs. Trump "shares her opinions and thoughts about family unification with the president directly and that he supported and urged her to make today's trip".

ABC's Lauren Pearle and Justin Doom contributed reporting to this article. But the first lady's husband, President Donald Trump, undercut the no-message message by tweeting that his wife was saying she really doesn't care about the "fake news" media.

The first lady had pressured her husband to change his hardline approach after images of distraught immigrant children dominated headlines in the United States and overseas.

A protest against the separation of children from immigrant parents is planned for Saturday in downtown Muskegon.

Thursday's trip is the second trip Melania Trump has made to a border state to meet face to face with those dealing with her husband's hard-line immigration policies. Her spokeswoman said it was simply "a jacket" with "no hidden message".

A staffer at the facility said the children had been there, on average, 48 days.

On June 20, Trump walked back the policy by issuing an executive order allowing families to remain together in detention.

Southwest Key is a nonprofit that runs 26 immigrant shelter facilities for children across Texas, Arizona and California. "They like a little security around themselves, and if you try to scale the fence, believe me, they'll be even too happy to have you arrested and separated from your children".

Over the past two months, about 2,300 children have been separated from their parents in Trump's "zero tolerance" policy on illegal crossing of the Mexican border.

It was reported that Mrs Trump had pushed her husband to end the practice of separating migrant families, amid outrage over footage showing the children crying and being kept in cages.

But the states say his order is riddled with caveats and fails to reunite parents and children who have already been torn apart.
