Melania Trump Holds Roundtable at Border Detention Facility in Arizona.

First Lady Melania Trump flew to Tucson, Arizona Thursday to hold a roundtable at a U.S. Customs and Border Protection detention facility with local officials.

“I know how dangerous and difficult your daily jobs are so I really appreciate all you do on behalf of the country,” the first lady told the Border Patrol officials.

“I’m here to help and support you and give my help, whatever I can, on behalf of children and the families,” she added.

TCA Border Patrol Chief Patrol Agent Rodolfo Karisch told Mrs. Trump “there’s been a lot of misinformation that’s been put out to the general public about the conditions of the facilities and how our people and how our people care for the immigrants that we do encounter.”

Mike Humphries, who runs the Office of Field Operations, pointed out that agents act to prevent human trafficking.

“We’ve really prevented instances of human trafficking where someone show up claiming to be a family unit and then we find out that the children are in no way,” he said, “not even a close relation to the adult in custody.”

The first lady asked Humphries how often they see children crossing without an adult.
