Donald Trump's relationship with his family has always been a talking point, with the president known to have a soft spot for his oldest daughter, Ivanka Trump. "Congress must now act + find a lasting solution that is consistent with our shared values; the same values that so many come here seeking as they endeavor to create a better life for their families", the first daughter tweeted.
Ivanka Trump has sought to promote a family-friendly agenda under a president whose comments on race, gender and inclusivity have drawn bipartisan rebukes.
She also stayed quiet when her father unleashed a brutal attack on MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski, questioning her intelligence and saying she was "bleeding badly from a face-lift" in a December encounter.

Ivanka Trump was targeted recently by late-night comedian Samantha Bee over immigration policy, though Bee apologized for using a crude epithet to describe her.
CNN ran a column called "Ivanka's Deafening Silence", and the liberal site Vox featured a piece titled "Ivanka Trump, Children's Advocate, Has Nothing to Say About Family Separation". She told the AP at the time: "There's a special place in hell for people who prey on children". "That's what she said she wanted to do, and that is the mark she wanted to leave in her role in the West Wing, and that has not been the case". They yelled at her until she walked out.
The crisis at the border has upended the White House, even as the president has told confidants he thinks being tough on immigration will be a winning issue for Republicans in this fall's midterm elections.
