For the second time in a week, First lady Melania Trump has traveled to Tucson, Arizona. This will be her second visit to a border detention facility holding undocumented immigrants who have been arrested at the southern border.

The First Lady drew criticism for the jacket that she wore to board the plane on her way to her last visit. On the back, her jacket said "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?"

Her communications director issued a statement, explaining that the jacket didn't have any special meaning. However, people widely ignored the statement.

Her communications director issued a statement leading up to this visit. She explained why the First Lady chose this specific center, which isn't located directly on the border.

"This facility is about two hours away from the actual U.S. border, but is the first place individuals (parents and children together) are brought immediately after detention at the border," the first lady's communications director Stephanie Grisham said Thursday, according to a pool report.

Melania was photographed boarding her plane and arriving at the center. This time there was nothing controversial about her outfit—although it's not unlikely that the media will find a reason to fault her. 

Grisham shared what the FLOTUS will be doing at the center: "At the facility, she will participate in a roundtable with U.S. Marshalls, U.S. Border Patrol Agents, and local ranchers who will share their stories about what they have seen across the border, like the story of a 6-year-old boy who was found alone in the desert in Arizona."

People are waiting at detention centers in Arizona to protest the FLOTUS' visit to the center. They are both protesting separating families and the FLOTUS' presence given her controversial jacket last week.
