Anti-Trump Super PAC Filing U.S. Customs and Border Protection Complaint Against Melania Trump
The Democratic Coalition Against Trump announced today that it is filing paperwork requesting an immediate and thorough investigation by U.S. Customs and Border Protection to determine whether Melania Trump, wife of the Republican nominee for President of the United States, violated U.S. immigration laws. The move comes after numerous media stories have called into question whether Mrs. Trump entered the United States legally and whether she illegally held employment while in the United States on a visa for non-working visitors.
Last week, the Coalition announced that it would file a request for documents under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to bring the truth about Mrs. Trump’s immigration status into public view. This latest move is intended to ensure that the public can find out, before the November election, whether Mr. Trump and his wife have violated our nation’s immigration laws.
“Donald Trump has been very vocal about his proposal to forcefully deport more than 12 million undocumented immigrants from our country,” said Scott Dworkin, Senior Advisor to the super PAC. “But ever since serious questions first arose about whether his own wife may have been an illegal immigrant, the reality TV star has been uncharacteristically tight-lipped. We’re filing this complaint because we believe that the public has the right to know if the Republican presidential nominee is a complete hypocrite.”
