The White House policy prosecuting all adults who enter the United States illegally remains in place even if they arrive with children, President Donald Trump said as his wife defiantly toured a southern border detention center. Melania said she was there to help reunite children with their families.
Melania was not wearing the jacket when she landed in McAllen, Texas.
Melany Trump is a former model is intentional about her wardrobe choices and is careful to choose outfits for worldwide visits.

Trump's decision came after sustained bipartisan criticism, including from former first ladies who spoke out Monday. Other protesters, who included other parents, children and activists, waved signs as the mothers nursed.
Melania spent an hour-plus at the shelter, talking directly to children who spoke to her either in English or in Spanish, through a translator.
Third-graders welcomed Melania with a large paper American flag they'd signed taped to a wall.
Mrs. Trump asked her staff on Tuesday to plan a trip as soon as possible - before President Trump signed the executive order, although Grisham wasn't sure if Mrs. Trump knew that the order was coming.
Stipulating that fashion is a form of expression, and someone like the First Lady has an entire sartorial team at her disposal (to say nothing of her fashion designer step-daughter), the answer, of course, is that her $39 fuckboi-in-the-suburbs jacket was a deliberate move.
Trump wore the jacket as she boarded a flight en route to visit a group of migrant children in Texas.
The objective of the visit was "to take part in briefings and tours at a nonprofit social services center for children who have entered the United States illegally", a statement from Grisham says.
'Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!' he added. "We don't want to have people - we don't want to have children separated from their parents", the President said.
The photos show the children all smiles while meeting Melania, who wore tight white jeans and white trainers with the changed jacket.
