Her second scheduled stop was to the Ursula Border Patrol Processing Center, a Customs and Border Patrol intake center.

The US president also added that his wife, Melania Trump, has traveled to McAllen, Texas to visit a border detention facility where children are being held, Reuters reported.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said separated immigrant children still don't know when they will see their parents again.

Her first visit, according to the White House pool reporters traveling with the first lady, was to Upbring New Hope Children's Shelter and lasted about 75 minutes.

"It is still very early and we are awaiting further guidance on the matter", the Health and Human Services Department said in a statement.

After remaining silent as calls mounted for her to weigh in on President Donald Trump's policy of separating migrant families at the border, Ivanka Trump finally congratulated the president for ending his own policy - and called for the government to "swiftly and safely" reunify the families who have been separated.

"She wants to see what's real", the first lady's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told CNN en route to Texas.

The Justice Department asked a federal judge to change the rules regarding the detention of immigrant children, seeking permission to detain them for longer than the permitted 20 days in an effort to keep them together with their parents.

A sweeping US House of Representatives immigration overhaul yesterday teetered on the brink of collapse as lawmakers struggled to move past an issue that has become politically fraught amid the dire images of families being separated at the border. The official said many of reunited families were back together after a few days of separation.

Amid worldwide outrage, Trump on Wednesday reversed a policy that has already separated more than 2,300 children from their parents.

When asked Thursday if the first lady supports the policy, Grisham said, "She supports that the law should be followed".

Mrs. Trump, whose focus as first lady is on child well-being, appears to have been among those pushing him to act.

"It really bothered her to see this", President Trump said.

In Texas, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti described uncertainty about access to legal representation for immigrant families and maximum holding periods for those accused of illegally crossing the border. Mr. Trump commended DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Wednesday at the order's signing, saying she did a "great job" with her vigorous defense of the administration policy the past few weeks in the face of a nationwide outcry.
