Melania Trump visits Boston Medical Center amid employee protests

Protesters demand Melania Trump CANCEL Boston hospital visit

Protesters demand Melania Trump CANCEL Boston hospital visit

The hospital also works with expectant mothers who misuse drugs or alcohol. "It is my hope that what we discuss today will encourage others to replicate similar programs within their own communities".

On Wednesday, after the first lady left, Walsh sent another e-mail thanking those who disagreed with BMC for hosting Trump for their conduct.

The reception was far warmer when the first lady entered a basement conference room, not far away, to meet with BMC administrators, top doctors, and the first lady of Massachusetts, Lauren Baker.

Some wore white lab coats with the words, "We really do care, do you?" - a reference to a jacket Mrs. Trump once wore that read, "I really don't care, do you?"

"We believe that children will thrive if their parents, especially their mothers, are well", she said.

First lady Melania Trump, left, speaks with pediatrician Eileen Costello, front right, as U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar, behind center, looks on during a visit to Boston Medical Center in Boston on November 6.

She will also receive a briefing on the programs and tour the BMC's pediatric unit to see the treatment in action. The intention of her trip was not immigration, but "Be Best", her multi-pronged platform addressing the health and wellness of children.

"I hope today's visit helps shine a light on programs like yours", said the first lady, who was visiting as part of her "Be Best" initiative.

"I am grateful for the thoughtful ways people have expressed both their disagreement and support for the visit", she said.

But Grisham tweeted Wednesday afternoon that the first lady had just finished talking with BMC leaders and staff and that NAS is "a topic she's devoted to raising awareness to through #BeBest".

First Lady Melania Trump's visit to Boston Medical Center on Wednesday sparked a sharp rebuke of President Donald Trump's administration as more than 100 sign-toting staff members marched out of the building to argue the president's policies on immigration and health care stood in stark contrast to the hospital's core values of empathy and diversity.

Outside Boston Medical Center in the city's South End, as many as 200 workers protested the visit, saying the first lady represented an administration who they say has discouraged immigrants from seeking health care with tough immigration policies. She said staffers "are here to be a voice for them, to let them know that is a place where they can receive exceptional care without exception, and where you can come and be your true self".

"I hope that she can come here and learn about all of the wonderful work and the programs that are happening here, and that she can take that information back up to Capitol Hill with her and get this administration to think about policies and practices that are actually going to help people heal", she said.

Dianna Ploss, the founder of MA 4 Trump, brought a cutout of President Donald Trump to the protest.

BMC treats a large number of low-income patients on Medicaid and many immigrants. It includes parental presence at the infant's bedside, skin-to-skin contact and breastfeeding.

"Neonatal abstinence syndrome is one of the most heartbreaking parts of the opioid crisis", Azar said.
