First Lady Melania Trump made yet another visit to a migrant center on Thursday, during which protesters greeted her with a giant balloon depicting President Trump as a Klansmen.
According to The Hill, "a group of protesters waited for the first lady to arrive at the facility with a balloon depicting President Trump in a Ku Klux Klan outfit across the street from the Southwest Key migrant holding facility."
The Southwest Key is a nonprofit that operates 26 immigrant shelters for children in Texas, Arizona, and California. Melania Trump had visited the Tuscon shelter earlier this week before heading over to the Phoenix shelter on Thursday.
Protestors were apparently triggered by reports from the mainstream media that President Trump had put in place the policy separating illegal immigrant families. According to NBC News, the policy began under former President Barack Obama in October 2016.
"Numbers provided to NBC News by the Department of Homeland Security show that another 1,768 were separated from their parents between October 2016 and February 2018, bringing the total number of separated kids to more than 4,100," reports NBC News.
Trump recently signed an executive order allowing children to be detained alongside their families.
