Melania Trump is planning to make another trip to visit additional immigration facilities where children are being housed after being separated from their parents who have crossed the border illegally.

“Mrs. Trump plans to visit additional facilities sometime this week,” the first lady’s communication director Stephanie Grisham explained to the Washington Examiner Tuesday.

Trump “wants to continue to check on children,” Grisham added to CNN. “The first lady is moved by what she is hearing, and what she saw in Texas, and she wants to again see and listen for herself what is happening in these places.”

The details of the trip are not yet known, but the article suggested the visit will most likely include a stop in McAllen, Texas, at an immigration processing detention center. The first lady had planned to go there last week during her surprise trip to the state, but flooding prevented her from being able to go.

Last Thursday, Trump visited with the children and officials at the Upbring New Hope Children’s Shelter in McAllen. However, the event appeared to be overshadowed by a wardrobe decision — she wore a jacket with a message across the back that read, “I really don’t care. Do U?”

The first lady’s spokesperson said that it was just a jacket and there was “no hidden message.”

“It’s a jacket. There was no hidden message. After today’s important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn’t going to choose to focus on her wardrobe,” a statement from Grisham read.
