Melania Trump Was Likely An Undocumented Worker

Highlights From the 2016 Campaign Trail

Melania Trump's former modeling agent says the wife of the GOP presidential nominee obtained a work visa before she modelled professionally in the U.S.in the mid-1990s.

MELANIA Trump has taken to Twitter to slam claims that she flouted immigration laws in her effort to become an American citizen.

Trump's campaign has not answered any questions on the matter.

One of Donald Trump's biggest campaign issues has been immigration, and his threat to build a wall and keep illegal Mexican immigrants out of the U.S. Did her visas authorize her to work as a model? "She had enough tear sheets to qualify". "How ironic would it be if Mr. Trump, who has largely based his presidential run on his ridiculously extreme proposals related to illegal immigration, had actually married an illegal immigrant", Cooper continued. Appearing on Morning Joe in February, Trump said, "I never thought to stay here without papers". I had [a] visa.

As far as Melania's story goes, she had to go back to her home country of Slovenia to "stamp the visa" every so often, until she eventually applied for a green card "after a few visas".

The evidence of Mrs. Trump's presence in the U.S.in 1995 conflicts with the official biography distributed at the Republican Convention, as well as with a bio that had been posted on the Trump Organization website until the revelation she had falsely claimed to have earned a college degree at a Slovenian university. But there's also a question over what type of visaTrump actually had when she came to the country.

The wannabe first lady was quick to deny she broke the law Thursday, but the photoshoot seems to place her working in the USA in 1995-despite her having previously suggested she arrived a year later.

"Let me set the record straight: I have at all times been in full compliance with the immigration laws of this country. Period. Any allegation to the contrary is simple untrue".

To make matters worse, visa fraud can call into question subsequent green card and citizenship applications, "thus raising questions about Melania Trump's legal status, even today, despite her marriage to a US citizen".

"I came here for my career", Melania Trump told Harper's Bazaar in January.

Immigration lawyers have said that if Melania Trump is found to have violated her visa, this may cause problems for her in the present.

He said he was not aware whether she ever held a different visa.

Her reference to 1996 is notable because it implies she first came to the USA that year. "We don't know the exact dates of those before she officially settled in NY but her visits prior to that were temporary business opportunities that she had as a model".
