The visit is her second in a week to see the conditions where people, including children, are kept after entering the United States illegally.
First Lady Melania Trump is spotlighting the plight of immigrant families detained at the border with a second visit to a detention center.
The first lady herself chose to visit the facility, according to her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham.
The first lady had pressured her husband to change his hardline approach after images of distraught immigrant children dominated headlines in the United States and overseas. "I am here to support you and help any way I can".
Castro said her group was pushing for the immediate reunification of separated families, for an end to Trump's immigration policies and for the abolishing of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the agency in charge of deportations.
"It's a jacket. There was no hidden message", Grisham said at the time.
She was not wearing her green $39 Zara jacket and it's slogan on the back: "I really don't care, do u" that overshadowed her last trip to the border. She also met with children at one of the facilities. "She's advocating for quality care for these children under hard circumstances", Stephanie Grisham, Melania's communications director, explained.
There were moments from Trump's visits that seemed to indicate she was there not to change the status quo, but to applaud it. But the first lady's husband undercut the no-message message by tweeting that she was saying she really doesn't care about the "fake news" media. She nodded and said, "That's great", after being told that children remained at the Texas shelter from 42 to 45 days.
The first lady toured the facility following the roundtable. "She told her staff she wanted to go, and we made that happen", Grisham said.
The demonstration arrives after reports emerged of thousands of migrant children being separated from their families in recent months as a result of the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" policy implement last month.
