An anti-Trump super PAC has filed a Freedom Of Information Act request to get Melania Trump’s immigration records released to the public.
The Democratic Coalition Against Trump said in a statement:
The Democratic Coalition Against Trump’s legal team announced on Thursday afternoon that they are filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for Melania Trump’s immigration records. The Coalition stated that they are requesting “any document that indicates the type of visa applied for or issued to Melania Trump from January 1, 1995 until she received her green card in 2001.” This request comes after today’s widespread reports that she might have been working in this country illegally, under the wrong visa.
“After learning that Mrs. Trump might not have followed the law on her path to U.S. citizenship, the Coalition decided to take action,” stated Jon Cooper, chairman of the organization. “How ironic would it be if Mr. Trump, who has largely based his presidential run on his ridiculously extreme proposals related to illegal immigration, had actually married an illegal immigrant,” Cooper continued. “That would just go to show that Mr. Trump has been and always will be one thing: a hypocrite.”
There are growing questions surrounding Mrs. Trump’s immigration status and whether or not she worked in the country illegally in the 1990s.
Melania Trump released a statement that didn’t address any of the questions about her immigration status in 1995:

If it turns out that Mr. Tough on Immigrants Build The Wall’s wife was an illegal immigrant, it will kill what is left of Trump’s wilting presidential campaign. It was telling that Trump rambled on for nearly an hour in Maine today, but he did not utter a single word about his wife’s immigration status.
Just like Donald Trump’s tax returns, it Melania Trump’s immigration records are made public; the world will see that Donald Trump is a hypocrite and a fraud.
