One day after President Trump signs executive order mandating families be kept together despite ‘zero tolerance policy’, First Lady Melania Trumps makes a surprise visit to a facility in McAllen, Texas housing children who’ve already been separated. Meanwhile, Mayor de Blasio is among mayors denied entry at facility in Tornillo, Texas, Governor Cuomo demands HHS give him info on 700 children sent to NYS, House lawmakers reject a hardline immigration bill and put off vote on so-called ‘compromise’… AND… Time Magazine unveils scathing cover featuring President Trump staring down a terrified child.
(Note: This report was done before we got a glimpse of the jacket the First Lady wore when she boarded the plane to Texas, which is why it is not mentioned. The back of the jacket read, “I really don’t care. Do U?)
