US FIRST Lady Melania Trump has hit back at her husband’s hard line approach to immigration as she called to end the policy of separating children from their parents.

Mrs Trump’s statement comes after nearly 2000 children were found to have been separated from their families at the US-Mexico border across a six week period.

Her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said the first lady believes “we need to be a country that follows all laws,” but also one “that governs with heart”.

Ms Grisham said 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”.

The tough approach means adults who try and cross the border face custody and even criminal prosecution for illegal entry.

The policy has seen minors locked up in detention centres and kept away from their parents, but the spokesman insisted minors were held in decent conditions.

“We have some of the highest detention standards in the world for children,” he said.

About 1500 boys are being held in a former Walmart supermarket in Texas, and the government is erecting tent structures near the border to house the increasing number of migrant children, including unaccompanied minors, in custody.

What is she doing besides mouthing soothing-sounding words?  Does she come out against Trump's cruel and inhumane treatment against children?  Or is she just a chatty kathy...pull the string and nice phrases come out: “we need to be a country that follows all laws.”

Laws against children?  I find Melania's comment about obeying laws re: immigration and illegal entry most curious, because that is the law that she broke when she came into the US illegally. She's from Slovenia. in eastern Europe...one of the shithole nations, her husband Donald Trump will tell you.

I'm sure her husband will get around to jailing her soon, as soon as he gets the border patrol to form a firing squad to rid us of the children.
