Calling on "both sides of the aisle" coming "together to achieve successful immigration reform," first lady Melania Trump issued a statement through her spokeswoman that she "hates to see" children of illegal immigrants separated from their family at the southern border.

"Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform," Melania's communications director Stephanie Grisham told CNN on Sunday. "She believes we need to be a country that follows all laws, but also a country that governs with heart."

The Trump administration has been taking criticism from many for enforcing a "zero tolerance policy" on immigration, which charges illegal immigrants with a federal crime for crossing the border and forcing children to be separated from their parents during the process.

Amid the partisan battle on immigration reform nearly 2,000 children have been separated from their guardians and held in facilities between April 19-May 31, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Health and Human Services has set up tent cities on military bases to house those children.
