The first lady, who arrived in Tucson, Ariz., earlier Tuesday morning for her second visit to an immigrant holding facility in a week, made the stop at the Phoenix shelter for migrant children shortly after.
"This facility is about two hours away from the actual USA border, but is the first place individuals (parents and children together) are brought immediately after detention at the border", the first lady's communications director Stephanie Grisham said Thursday, according to a pool report.
The first lady had pressured her husband to change his hardline approach after images of distraught immigrant children dominated headlines in the United States and overseas. When she actually met the children, she asked straightforward questions like "where are you from?" rather than "how are you feeling?"
According to Stephanie, this second trip to the border was planned shortly after her Melania's return from Texas, and is to hear from the agents at the border about what they're seeing. Her staff says she has good intentions, but that message was muddied last week when she visited the border in Texas.
This time, Mrs. Trump seemed averse to distractions as she attended a round table and toured an intake facility in Tucson.
The 48-year-old mother of one and former model, herself an immigrant from Slovenia, played her choice of clothes safe on Thursday, dressing monochrome in white trousers and a black top.

There were moments from Trump's visits that seemed to indicate she was there not to change the status quo, but to applaud it.
This time, Trump travels amid upheaval over her husband's hardline approach to immigration.
"She wasn't able to visit a DHS facility, and she wants to learn from the people on the front lines at the border", Grisham told reporters.
Seventeen states, including Washington, New York and California, are suing President Donald Trump's administration in an effort to force officials to reunite migrant families who have been separated at the US-Mexico border. Federal officials were struggling to reunite children with their parents, some of whom were already deported.
Even though the policy has ended, there remain more than 2,000 immigrant children in government-contracted shelters that were separated from their parents at the border.
