Is Melania hiding a first marriage like Dakota Meyer?


The questions surrounding Melania Trump's immigration status continued on Friday as the Democratic Coalition Against Trump filed a Freedom of Information Act request, seeking to make the potential first lady's immigration papers public. 

The move by the anti-Trump political action committee came just a day after the 46-year-old Slovenian native responded to reports suggesting she came to the United States illegally. 

"Let me set the record straight: I have at all times been in full compliance with the immigration laws of this country. Period," she said in a statement on Twitter. "Any allegation to the contrary is simply untrue. In July 2006, I proudly became a U.S. citizen. Over the past 20 years, I have been fortunate to live, work and raise a family in this great nation and I share my husband's love for our country." 

Her husband – Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump – has used much of his campaign preaching immigration reform and railing against illegal immigrants. He's repeatedly pushed for a controversial plan to build a wall on the Mexican border and force that country to pay for it. 

The Democratic Coalition Against Trump said their request to see Melania's immigration status was inspired by a report by Politico, which found gaps in her immigration story. 

The Trumps had previously claimed Melania came to the U.S. legally in 1996 on a modeling contract. Politico spoke with her original U.S. modeling agent who confirmed he brought her to New York on a H1-B visa. That left the question of how Melania arrived in the U.S. when she modeled for a series of nude photographs, uncovered by The New York Post last week. 

"The nude photo shoot places her in the United States in 1995, as does a biography published in February by Slovenian journalists," Politico wrote. 

"The question, of course, is whether – to use her husband’s wording – this anti-immigration presidential candidate married an illegal immigrant," the Democratic Coalition Against Trump pointed out on Facebook. 

The anti-Trump group and Politico aren't the only ones questioning Melania's status. Although she has previously said that Trump is her first husband, Univision reported a claim on Friday that she was wed for four years before her 2005 Palm Beach nuptials to the 70-year-old businessman. 

Immigration attorney Michael Wildes, who worked for the Trump Organization, told Univision that Melania has obtained a green card "based on marriage" in 2001. 

"Ms. Trump received citizenship in 2006 and prior to that she had a green card based on marriage," he said. "Before that, she had a work visa and was in full compliance on her visas and never disrespected any of them. That has been made clear to me." 

When asked to explain the marriage discrepancy, Wildes told Univision he would seek clarification – presumably from the Trump Organization, they speculate. He later emailed his response: "I didn't hear back, sorry." 

When speaking with PEOPLE for a previous cover story, Melania said she never thought about coming to the United States illegally. 

"You need to go through the process and that's what I did because if not, I didn't even think about it, I would just stay [in Europe]," she explained. "It didn’t even cross my mind." 

"I needed to be legal and I need to follow the law and obey the law and that's it," she continued. "I didn't even think about it. 'Okay if I don't do it, oh let me just stay – I would just be [in Europe]." 

Melania told PEOPLE she came to the United States to model in 1996 on a visa. She explained the process: 

"You come on visa and you have a few times you need to fly back to Europe to stamp the visa and you come back and have another visa," she said. "I apply for the visa after two years when I was here. I went through long process through the lawyers – you need to show all your work, why you're coming here, [etc]. I went from five years when I had the green card you apply for citizenship – you cannot even apply before." 

She also said future immigrants who come to the U.S. show should do so legally. "We have a country of law, so I think people should follow the law," she said. 

Look I don't give a rats ass if Melania had a first husband or not.  What I care about is if she is telling the truth and if she is actually legal.  If she is illegal and Donald is elected, she would be the first First Lady to be an illegal.


  1. There's something else very odd about her: HE claims she speaks several languages but after 20 years in the US she isn't even fluent in English. Who speaks that way after 20 years in New York society?

  2. So . . . looks as though The Donald bought himself a used Yugo that had been through several rear-end collisions?!?!?!?!?

  3. If Michelle Obama shows her upper arms she's called terrible names; this bimbo shows EVERYTHING and get a pass. IOCIYAD

  4. When Donald and Melania made that triumphant descent a la escalator in the Trump Tower, Trump started his presidential campaign by attacking immigrants. They are coming across the border. They are rapists and drug dealers. Then there are 11 million illegals who Trump wants to round up and deport. He insulted a judge for being a Mexican in spite of his being born in Indiana. He attacked Mr. and Mrs. Khan. The irony here is that Melania just might be one of those people who entered the US on a tourist visa, worked when she was not allowed to. Did she over-stay her visa? Work visa is for 3 years. And, then she met Donald Trump.

    It's not just the fact that Trump insulted millions of immigrants, legal and illegal, he insulted President Obama's citizenship. He continued going Full Birther long after Obama showed his birth certificate. His surrogates, Lewandowski on CNN and Carl Paladino in NY are still talking like birthers, claiming that Obama got into Harvard as a foreign student from Kenya. If there is something wrong with Melana's papers, it would be poetic justice for the Chief Trump, head of the Immigration Police and Gossip. Yes, I would like to see her papers because of Trump's insults to immigrants and his attacks on President Obama.

    If some people want to see Melania's papers, it is just fine with me. Melania had a few other problems that make her less than 100% truthful. Melania claimed to have a college degree in architecture and design from a university in Slovenia. That information was posted on her website, until reporters checked universities in Slovenia. Melania dropped out during her first year. Then there was that business with a couple of paragraphs from Michelle Obama's speech showing up in Melania's convention speech. That's stealing. And lying. Trump will say and do anything to protect his image, and by extension, his wife's image.

  5. If she has been lying about her status since the get-go in order to stay here, which is looking more and more probable, she could be the first First Lady to be deported. Not that she's going to be any kind of First Lady, since her husband will be in a padded room by November.

  6. Well, I came here first on a visitors visa. It was first for three months, and I had to get out. I went to Canada and when I came back, the border guards almost didn't let me back in. I told them I needed at least to get my suitcase and my belongings, as well as my ticket to back home. So, he reluctantly gave me an extension of just one month. During that month, I applied for a student visa, because my host family wanted me to be a student and help them in their household. I had to leave the country while waiting for the student visa. I chose to go to Mexico and wait. After six weeks, I finally got my student visa, and was able to come back, one day before Christmas, with a grand total of $10 to my name.
    The reason I told this is: it is not that easy to get a visitors visa extended. Melanoma says she did so several times. I call bullsh*t on that. Also, those nude pics... She for sure did not work those for free. Her then- room mate actually said that she got $1,500/shooting.
    Also, one does NOT get a Green Card willy-nilly. Unless you have TONS of $ and can invest it, and employ x # of people. (I forgot the exact stipulations - did not apply to me anyway since I had no money.) Also do not think that at that time she had that much money.
    So, either she was married (could have been a sham marriage, where you pay anywhere between $1000-$10,000 or more for the marriage certificate, pr a real marriage to who-knows-who), or spponsored. She did say that she was not sponsored.
    DonTheCon did have some immigration lawyers working for his business. Maybe something fishy going on in that regard. Because he is getting all those foreign models here on some type of visa, and then stiffs them by not paying them once they are here. Same with his Polish construction workers, who he stiffs and who will not say anything because they are afraid that they would be punished (when, in fact, HE would be the one punished for hiring illegal workers.)

  7. I can't stand that illegal immigrant anyway. Not surprised she's a liar. There's something icky about her - aside from the fact she's married to the loser with tiny hands - she's a liar - and probably worked as a highly paid escort while hiding from the immigration authorities.

    I simply can't stand the sight of her and that's even before tiny hands decided to run - wish they both could be deported.
