First Lady Melania Trump arrived in McAllen, Texas, on Thursday, June 21, to get a first-hand account of what it鈥檚 like inside a child detention center. In a meeting with various immigration officials and social service workers, Mrs. Trump asked several questions concerning the kids, including how they鈥檙e being taken care of, how many times the children are being permitted to speak to their families (the answer: twice a week), and what she can do to help them.

鈥淗ow I can help to these children reunite with their families as quickly as possible?鈥 she asked one of the officials at the meeting.

The First Lady鈥檚 visit was not announced prior to her arrival and comes at the same time that her husband, President Donald Trump, issued a reversal to the practice of referring migrant parents to face prosecution in federal courthouses when entering the country illegally. The president also said Wednesday that children will no longer be separated from their families when crossing the US-Mexico border.

鈥淗er 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,鈥 the White House鈥檚 Office of the First Lady said in a statement to CBS News.

The facility Mrs. Trump visited is called Upbring New Hope Children鈥檚 Center and shelters 55 immigrant children. They range between 12 and 17 years of age, but the center has a permit to house kids as young as six years old, according to CBS News.

鈥淲e鈥檙e honored to show you our shelter,鈥 Upbring CEO Director Kirk Senske told the First Lady, CNN reports. 鈥淲e treat them like our own children.鈥

Mrs. Trump鈥檚 visit comes just days after every living First Lady, including Mrs. Trump, proclaimed their disapproval of separating children from their families as they attempt to enter the country.
