I guess Donald Trump better think twice before leaking nude photos of his wife to the NY Post!
Those nude photos in question, featuring Melania Trump, raised questions about her immigration status and the visa she was staying in the country on. She dismissed those reports and said, “I have at all times been in full compliance with the immigration laws of this country. Period.”
But now there’s a whole new angle to this story: the nature of the green card she received in 2001. Trump has previously said that is when she applied for a green card. Well, according to Univision, there’s a little more to this story:
Michael Wildes, an immigration attorney who worked for the Trump Organization, told Univision’s investigative unit that she obtained a green card four years earlier in 2001, “based on marriage.”
Melania and Donald Trump were not married until Jan. 22, 2005 at Bethesda-by-the Sea Episcopal Church in Palm Beach, Florida.
Wildes said he acted “on behalf of Trump models” and handled legal work to obtian visas and green cards for Miss Universe when Trump owned the pageant. He told Univision that he had been authorized by the Trump Organization “to speak on the matters concerning Melania.”
He said he could not comment on how Melania Trump became a U.S. permanent resident.
Paulo Zampolli was her agent at the time, and he told Univision that she got a work visa prior to working at his agency.
