Under Trump’s New Immigration Rules Melania Trump Would Have Been Deported

According to the immigration attorneys, Melania Trump could have been deported from the US if President Trump’s policies been in effect back in the 1990s. According to documents obtained Associated Press, Melania Trump (then Knauss) violated the terms of entry, as she was paid for modeling work undertaken in the US while traveling on a visitor (or tourist) visa in 1996.

She reportedly earned more than $20,000 in the seven weeks before she actually acquired legal permission to work in the US. Moreover, without disclosing any past imprudence, she went on to apply for a green card in 2001 and became a US citizen in 2006.

A pair of immigration lawyers told the Slate website that Ms. Trump put herself into this category when she violated her visa. Hasan Shafiqullah, deputy attorney in charge of the immigration law unit at the Legal Aid Society, said:

“If the current executive order on interior enforcement and the related Homeland Security memoranda on interior enforcement had been in effect at that time [1996], then she would have certainly been an enforcement priority,”

Interestingly, a lawyer representing Ms. Trump said the documents obtained by the AP were not familiar to him but did not otherwise challenge their accuracy.
