"She's learning that these people at HHS facilities are providing some outstanding care under hard circumstances".

This time, Melania chose less controversial apparel, making the trip in a risk-averse ensemble of a black sweater and white slacks.

"She'll continue to give her husband her opinion on what her thoughts are on family reunification", her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told reporters travelling on her plane.

"She wants to talk to people on the frontlines and she wants to thank them for their oftentimes unsafe work".

Her first visit - to a centre in McAllen, Texas - was overshadowed by the coat she wore.

But Mr Trump undercut the no-message message by tweeting that his wife was saying she really does not care about the "fake news" media.

The first lady landed at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson just after 10 a.m.

It is understood Mr Trump's visit could last until July 15, although the exact date will be dependent on his planned summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Their visit comes despite fears of mass protests from United Kingdom critics of the US President.

This time, Trump travels amid upheaval over her husband's hardline approach to immigration. "We think it's important for her to really care for the children here that are detained".

Twenty-five protesters were taken into custody Tuesday in downtown Los Angeles in the US state of California for denouncing Washington's immigration policy and separation practices.

"If this is an issue of importance to the first lady, the field is vast for engagement and follow-up and her voice", she said.

She held meetings with border patrol officers, immigration agents, United States marshals and a local ranger.

Sessions said that refusing to prosecute adults crossing illegally into the U.S. would be a disservice to the children they bring with them.

In Arizona, she again turned the discussion with officials, who talked about the importance of enforcement, to the topic her staff says is her primary focus: "How many children?" she asked. The first lady's spokeswoman said there had been no hidden message.

The first lady on Thursday will be visiting the Southwest Key Campbell, a Health and Human Services facility where immigrant children are being housed.
