The boy, whose name had not been released, had been transported to a Tucson center for further processing, and is reportedly in good condition.

During her visit to the Tucson facility, Mrs Trump held a roundtable discussion with Border Patrol, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the U.S. Marshals Service and a local rancher.

‘I want to thank you for all your hard work. I know how difficult and dangerous your daily jobs are,’ Melania Trump told agents. ‘I am here to support you and help any way I can.’
