She seemed averse to any distractions as she toured an intake facility in Tucson. She changed into sneakers en route. "So this is something that our people encounter on a daily basis, is seeing children that are put in, and families, in very unsafe situations". "She told her staff she wanted to go, and we made that happen", Grisham said.

U.S. president Donald Trump has made an about-turn on a policy that was a step too far - even for a presidency that has probed the outer limits of civility - by signing an order to stop the separation of children from parents who enter the United States illegally.
