President Trump and his administration have recently been blamed by liberals for thousands of immigrant children being separated from their families at the border. Conservatives appreciate Trump’s promise of being tougher on border security to help prevent drug runs and higher crime rates associated with illegal immigration; liberals hold the mentality that “everyone should be welcomed into our country.”
Given the obvious disagreements, the two political parties have failed to reach a consensus on immigration reform in recent days. Although liberals have shifted the blame of the separated families on to the Trump administration, President Trump previously stated that Democrats are needed for successful immigration reform to be possible and prevent the “family breakups.”
Protests against Trump’s immigration policies have circulated the nation. However, the Trump administration has boldly stuck to upholding the law on immigrants only being allowed to enter America legally.
First Lady Melania Trump has stayed silent on the controversial issue since it erupted. Amidst her recovery from a recent surgery, the First Lady’s office released a statement regarding the massive controversy on Sunday, June 17th.
“Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform," a spokesperson stated on behalf of Melania. "She believes we need to be a country that follows all laws, but also a country that governs with heart.”
As CNN pointed out, the First Lady rarely comments on policy issues. However, it is well-known that children of all walks of life hold a place near and dear to Melania’s heart. The majority of her work as the First Lady typically revolves around kids including visiting children's’ hospitals on a regular basis and creating a “Be Best” platform that solely focuses on children’s over well-being.
