On Tuesday, Melania Trump hosted Queen Letizia of Spain for tea at the White House. The visit was part of King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia’s five-day trip to the U.S.
“Queen Letizia & I enjoyed tea & time together focusing on the ways we can positively impact children,” said a tweet her office posted later in the evening.

Unfortunately, critics were quick to slam her concern for children while thousands of kids are being taken away from their parents and locked in immigrant detention centers:

Like letting them out of cages?

Dear @FLOTUS: Your husband's policy of ripping babies away from parents is inconsistent with the #BeBest initiative you proudly announced. What are you going to do to stop tender age camps for babies? No one can take your initiative seriously until this evil policy is reversed. https://t.co/R5aohPA9DV

Notice that NONE of these hypocrites said ONE WORD when Obama “Caged these children” and SEPARATED them from their families, as he allowed MS13 Savages to enter our Republic?” DOUBLE STANDARD-HYPOCRITES.
Impact children??? How's the impact of putting a young child into a concentration camp?

You're kidding, right? You can start helping children by talking to your husband about changing his policy of separating children from their parents at the border.

Dear @IvankaTrump & @FLOTUS: please don’t ever talk abt children again. U r not champions of children. Rather, you are complicit in the worst child-abuse atrocity in this nation’s history. Just cash your checks & keep quiet. #Melania #Ivanka #Trump #FamilySeparation #BorderGate

So typical. Because this didn’t matter under Obama. Because even tho he deported more than any other president, nobody cared until Trump vowed to do something about immigration. Then it was all hands on deck. Hypocrisy is mind-numbing.
It is well-known that the Obama administration failed to protect thousands of Central American children who have flooded across the U.S. border since 2011, leaving them vulnerable to traffickers and to abuses at the hands of government-approved caretakers.
For the record, on Wednesday, President Trump has signed an executive order to allow children to stay with parents caught crossing the border illegally “while ensuring we have a powerful border.” The measure would allow children to stay in detention with parents for an extended period of time.
But, no matter what President Trump dows, the Left will not be satisfied. They will just find something else to whine about.
Hope the executive order to keep together includes a plane ride home.
