But that assertion leaves out the fact that "zero tolerance", the decision to prosecute 100% of illegal border crossings, presented the Trump administration with a policy choice: keep families together, releasing them into the U.S. on electronic monitoring, or split them apart. The practice, and accompanying images of children crammed into cages, sparked widespread condemnation from activists, Democrats and several Republicans.

But President Donald Trump offered his own interpretation, tweeting that it "refers to the Fake News Media".

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

It seemed a contradictory message for Trump's mission to Texas, where she hoped to demonstrate how much she cares about the children separated from their parents and housed in shelters there. A White House official followed up Wednesday, saying Melania had been making her opinion known to the president that he needed to act to keep migrant families together.

Grisham told reporters on the trip that the visit was the first lady's idea, and she planned the visit before the president signed his executive order.

Melania Trump was photographed boarding a plane in the offending coat, but had taken it off before she visited detention facilities in Texas where children of illegal immigrants are being held as the feds prosecute their parents.

First Lady Melania Trump participates in a round table discussion with doctors and social workers at the Upbring New Hope Childrens Center operated by Lutheran Social Services of the South and contracted with the Department of Health and Human Services June 21, 2018 in McAllen, Texas. "I think we're going to see hundreds of cases where the children are permanently separated from their parents, becoming wards of the United States", he said in an interview with Global News. The lack of a reunification protocol could lead to "permanent separation" of parent and child, he said.

"Because, in the middle of the worst moral scandal in recent memory - so bad that her husband backed down for the first time in memory - people who were supposedly on her side let her get on a plane with a jacket that said, 'I really don't care, do you?"

The deal focuses on the withdrawal of the PKK-affiliated YPG terror group from the northern Syrian city in order to stabilise in the region.

At the facility the first lady talked with staff about how the children were being treated and asked how she could help.

It's not clear whether this jacket is a nod to those concerned that she is being too soft on immigration, or was simply a major wardrobe malfunction.

Some 2,300 migrant children have been separated from their families since May, according to the government.

Grisham underscored that message in a tweet with the hashtags #SheCares and #ItsJustAJacket. Before becoming Mrs Trump and First Lady, Melania found fame as a model in an industry where ordinary garments are not seen as just incidental, let alone ones emblazoned with slogans. Trump's latest executive order did not address that concern, either, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.
