Melania Trump returns to border amid family separation outcry

She arrived at Tucson, Ariz., where she will visit a Customs and Border Protection facility and participate in a roundtable discussion with Border Patrol, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the U.S. Marshals Service and a local rancher.

With the world watching as she gets ready for her second visit, we wonder how she will carry herself, especially given the situation she is now checking-in on was created in the aftermath of her husband's "zero tolerance" immigration policy.

The visit drew more attention for a jacket Mrs. Trump wore that read, "I really don't care, do u?" on the back. Her staff says she has good intentions, but that message was muddied last week when she visited the border in Texas.

The agency would continue to refer single adults for prosecution for illegally crossing the border, said the CBP chief, adding that border agents would also separate children from adults if the child was in danger or if the adult had a criminal record.

The decision provoked a storm of criticism and speculation as to whether it was directed at anyone from her husband, to the media to the children to no one at all, and spawned copy-cat jackets from people saying they did care. The first lady will also have a private briefing at an intelligence operation center at the facility.
