Melania Trump hit by protests during second detention facility visit

Melania Trump has been hit by ugly protests after making her second visit to a detention facility holding undocumented immigrants.

The US First Lady caused controversy during her first visits after wearing a green, hooded military jacket from the fast-fashion brand Zara that read "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" as she departed and returned to Washington.

There was no sign of the jacket during her latest visit, to a migrant facility in Phoenix. However there was a large group of hecklers lying in wait.

Protestors greeted her with a giant balloon-like figure of President Donald Trump wearing a Ku Klux Klan robe, along with signs with obscenities and messages calling for the President to be impeached.

They chanted "Melania Trump is guilty, guilty", and demanded that all children separated from their parents at the border be reunited.

As Ms Trump left the facility, they attempted to chase her motorcade on foot but were held back by police.

More than 2300 migrant children have been separated from their parents after US President Donald Trump's administration began a "zero tolerance" policy in early May, seeking to prosecute all adults who crossed the border either illegally or seeking asylum, including those travelling with children.

However the policy has come under heavy criticism and legal scrutiny.

Mr Trump backed down on June 20 and issued an executive order to end the family separations.

This week a US federal judge ruled that immigration agents can no longer separate immigrant parents and children caught crossing the border from Mexico, and must work to reunite those families that had been split up in custody.
