esquire.com – Donald Trump’s No Good, Very Bad Week continued this morning when Politico published an exhaustive report on whether or not his wife, Melania, was actually an illegal immigrant when she first came to the United States. The conclusion? That the potential future First Lady may well have come to work Stateside as a model under a tourist visa—something that could have constituted “visa fraud,” according to an immigration law expert, and could even call her current citizenship into question.
Both Melania Trump and her husband have always contended that she entered the country legally, and most reports indicate she used what’s called an H-1B work visa. But Politico’s report found a number of instances where her own statements make that unlikely. In interviews with Harper’s Bazaar and MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Trump repeatedly said she had to travel back to her home country of Slovenia “every few months” to renew her U.S. visa.
