On June 21, she was castigated for boarding her aircraft en route to meet children at the US-Mexico border in Texas in the $39 Zara jacket. "She recognizes that", Grisham told reporters, according to the White House press pool.

Trump planned to hold a roundtable discussion with Border Patrol, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and US Marshals Service officials, as well as a local rancher.

This time, Mrs. Trump seemed averse to distractions as she attended a round table and toured an intake facility in Tucson.

The first was on the Friday evening following her trip to Texas, when she attended a Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) event in Virginia.

She did not wear the jacket Thursday.

When it comes from you, Melania, the unspoken message is the same as it would be for any hip young fashion fan who chose to wear that jacket.

It was removed before she disembarked in Texas and was not seen again.

On Tuesday, the first lady's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, confirmed to CNN that Trump would be returning to the border to visit migrant detention centers.

Since April, more than 2,300 immigrant children have reportedly been separated from their parents after the Trump administration implemented a "zero tolerance" policy for illegal immigrants.

Melania Trump is heading back toward the southern border of the United States but this time without her controversial jacket.

Protesters say they are demanding that all children separated from their parents at the border be reunited.

She landed at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson around 1 p.m. EST in the same look - however, she traded her slip-on shoes for white sneakers before heading to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility holding undocumented immigrant families suspected of crossing the border illegally.

President Trump signed an executive order that halted the separation of migrant families last week.

Beginning last month, federal prosecutors began treating all border crossings outside a US port of entry as a criminal offense - even if the immigrants sought asylum.

She also visited what officials described as a short-term holding centre for migrant minors.

"How are you?" she said, smiling. "We think it's important for her to really care for the children here that are detained".

When she visited the shelter in Phoenix, Trump greeted a group of children in Spanish and English, saying "Hola".

"Sessions, you're not welcome in our communities and your hatred is not welcome in our communities", said Jose Montez of Children Over Politics at the rally. The first lady's spokeswoman said there had been no hidden message.
