Following the nude photos featuring the aspiring First Lady of the United States, stories of Melania Trump migrating to the United States have been circulating.

With US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s negative views on refugee influx, it is expected from his campaign to provide answers to questions on the matter. However, the potential president is not trying to give any justification to the stories.

Trump’s third wife admitted that she came to the United States from Slovenia in the mid-1990s. According to the latest update on her migration story, she settled in New York to become a model. Bloomberg View’s Frank Wilkinson is leading a group of reporters who are attempting to dig into the actual story. It is believed that the former model may have violated the terms of her visa to get a chance to enter the US at the time of her migration to the nation.

All these speculations, if confirmed, will give a twist to Trump’s run to win the US elections 2016. He has been showing his stricter take on immigration policies. If the claims are found to be true, it would exhibit the “hypocrisy” of the potential president of the nation.

Trump and his wife met in 1998 for the first time and got married in 2005. Trump’s beloved, according to The Washington Post, admitted that she came to the nation on a legal visa in 1996, though the nude photos were taken in 1995 in New York. She added that she got a green card in 2001 and became an official citizen of the States in 2006.  “I came here for my career,” she told Harper’s Bazaar in early 2016.

“I did so well. I moved here. It never crossed my mind to stay here without papers. That is just the person you are. You follow the rules. You follow the law. Every few months you need to fly back to Europe and stamp your visa. After a few visas, I applied for a green card and got it in 2001. After the green card, I applied for citizenship. It was a long process.”
