Lena Dunham, Sia, Amber Heard & More Protested Family Detention This Weekend

The back of Melania Trump’s jacket read “I really don’t care do u?” The first lady wore the jacket while boarding a plane in Maryland bound for Texas where she visited the US-Mexico border

The first lady wore a green jacket with the words "I really don't care".

She changed into a pale yellow jacket before the plane landed in McAllen, Texas, for a visit to the Upbring New Hope Children's Center, which houses 55 migrant children.

The text on the back of the jacket - "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" - was an odd choice for a visit to a Texas detention center housing immigrant children.

What does she not care about and who is she asking whether they care?

Melania Trump's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham lambasted United States media on Twitter for focusing on her fashion choice.

Melania's tour comes on the heels of Trump's reversal of policy on the immigrants, asking the authorities to reunite the distressed children with their families.

"What was her first choice, a jacket that says 'womp, womp?'"

US President Donald Trump canceled his controversial immigration policy on Wednesday after his wife's and the world opposed in his decison.

"She supports family reunification", Ms Grisham added.

The reversal left a host of unanswered questions, including where the government will house newly detained migrants in an already overcrowded system, and how parents and children will be kept together. The jacket caused backlash online, with many people interpreting that the first lady doesn't care about immigrant children being separated from their parents.

'One interesting note here, even after this controversy erupted.Melania Trump put the jacket back on, just in time for the cameras, when she returned to Washington DC'.

Rep. Jackie Speier (D) on Saturday called the Border Patrol a "criminal law enforcement agency" and compared the detention facility she visited to a prison.

The first lady met with the facility's executive director, a case manager, a medical care coordinator and others as she began a tour of the facility.

"These are the American victims permanently separated from their loved ones", Trump said at the event, mimicking the "separated" language of migrant children taken from their undocumented parents. She thanked the staff for their compassion and kindness and said she wanted to hear more about how her husband's administration could build on efforts to reunite children with their families.
