Her visit comes amid a political firestorm for the Trump administration.

The Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" approach resulted in the separation of about 2,500 children from their parents at the border through the end of May.

Her spokesperson said the First Lady will continue to be a vocal presence on the issue as administration officials try to work out ways to reunited children and their families after President Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday.

In a May appearance in San Diego, Sessions announced the new zero-tolerance policy, which relied on family separation to make visible the negative consequences of illegal entry. The government's top lawyer found a punchline in the circumstances of children separated from their parents.

Meanwhile, US Secretary of Defence Jim Mattis confirmed Monday that two military bases in Texas would be used to house migrants crossing over the southern border. Ted Cruz, R-Tex., and Thom Tillis, R-N.C., who both introduced bills to increase the number of immigration judges and require that families are kept together during their entire legal proceedings.

Sessions was in Los Angeles to deliver a talk at the Criminal Justice Legal Foundation's annual luncheon, held at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel.

The protesters gathered on the sidewalk to chant and sing around lunchtime.

Multiple clergy members were arrested during a rally outside a federal courthouse building in Los Angeles Tuesday morning, ahead of a visit by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. "They've seen it for decades and now they're supporting the president, who's on their side for a change". When pressed on whether he would support alternatives to family detention, such as expanding the use of ankle monitors among immigrants released from federal custody, Ryan didn't directly answer, and accused Democrats of supporting lax border security. "We've got to get the children connected to their parents", Waters said.

Juan Sanchez, chief executive of the nation's largest shelters for migrant children, said he fears a lack of urgency by the USA government could mean it will take months to reunite families. Government officials noted previously that they are unsure where numerous children have been placed.

Republican Representative Mark Meadows, leader of a conservative faction among House Republicans, said he expected that an immigration bill that will likely be offered for a potential vote in the House some time this week would fail.

The president of the American Academy of Pediatrics called family separation "government sanctioned child abuse" that may cause children irreparable harm with lifelong consequences.

"HHS, Homeland Security, and the Justice Department seem to be doing a lot more to add to the bedlam and deflect blame than they're doing to tell parents where their kids are", Oregon Sen.
