First lady Melania Trump visits migrant children at Texas detention center

Melania wore the jacket as she boarded a plane en route to Texas, where she visited an immigrant children detention facility.

According to the Daily Mail, the jacket is from Spain-based outfitter Zara and costs upwards of $39. The children responded, sometimes in English, other times in Spanish, many of them wearing gray T-shirts with the red, white and blue words "We Are One".

The First Lady wore the jacket while boarding her airplane in Maryland, but emerged wearing another after landing in Texas.

In the extraordinary visit, shown live on television, the first lady addressed some of the staff and workers at the center.

"She believes we need to be a country that follows all laws, but also a country that governs with heart", Stephanie Grisham, a spokeswoman for Mrs. Trump, said earlier this week.


"I'd also like to ask you how I can help these children to reunite with their families as quickly as possible", she said.

"It's a jacket. There was no hidden message".

Count me among the Jacket Truthers: it was no accident. Instead, Trump's mission has been to demonstrate - through her fashion or her disappearance from the public eye - that she refuses to do what is expected of her. The first lady signed it as well. Trump had come under pressure to stop the practice, including from GOP allies and the first lady herself, following a public outcry sparked by widespread images of children held in fence-like structures.

Reporters, TV crews, and photographers secretly traveled with the First Lady and released photos of her visit after the president announced the news. While she may not troll the media in the same way as her husband does, she knows how to dress to get a reaction.
