Just in case it wasn't clear the first time, FLOTUS chose to wear the jacket again as she deplaned at Andrews Air Force base upon her return to Washington D.C. It was 82 degrees and muggy when she arrived.
"Her goals are to thank law enforcement and social services providers for their hard work, lend support and hear more on how the administration can build upon the already existing efforts to reunite children with their families", the White House's Office of the First Lady said in a statement.
Melania Trump, herself an immigrant from Slovenia, first weighed into the debate on Sunday with a public statement saying she hated to see children separated from their families and calling on the U.S. to govern "with heart".
Trump changed into a different jacket before her plane landed in McAllen, Texas.
Melania Trump met with staff looking after detained children in McAllen, Texas, and met with officials and employees at the facility, where 55 children aged 12 to 17 are housed.
He cited his daughter and his wife, saying: "Ivanka feels very strongly, my wife feels very strongly about it, I feel very strongly about it". One outraged user borrowed an image of the back of the jacket to promote groups working on behalf of immigrant children.
Melania Trump's surprise visit to a Texas facility housing migrant children sent there by the USA government drew more attention for her wardrobe than her actual visit.
The first lady could be seen modeling the unique ensemble, a military-style jacket from Zara that retails for $39, as she boarded a plane bound for the Lone Star State on Thursday during an unannounced visit to a child detention center.
President Trump's response came hours after Twitter reacted to Melania Trump's jacket. "Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!" he tweeted.
In a dramatic reversal of his previous stance, Mr Trump signed an executive order to keep families together at the border.
This is meant to get us talking about something else - anything other than the miserable way our country has been mistreating desperate immigrants seeking a new home.
Mrs. Trump said she is eager to meet with the children at the facility as well.
"She wanted to see everything for herself". "High Heels vs wearing a jacket that says "I really don't care, do u" at a time where the Trumps are being accused of not caring is a big f*cking mistake".
