Did Melanie Trump Come to the U.S. Legally?

Nude photos of Melania Trump that were published this week in the New York Post contradict the GOP presidential nominee's wife's version of how she came to America, according to Politico.

The Post published two-decade-old photos of Melania that place her in the United States in 1995, but she has repeatedly stated she came to New York in 1996, Politico reported.

Citing immigration experts, Politico wrote, "There's even a slim chance that any years-old misrepresentations to immigration authorities could pose legal problems for her today."

Donald Trump famously wants to crack down on illegal immigrants, so it's clearly an issue if his wife has been lying about how she wound up in the country. Melania has told versions of her story to Harper's Bazaar and MSNBC that are inconsistent with how visas actually work, according to Politico.

Immigration legal expert Andrew Greenfield told Politico that it "could constitute visa fraud" if she entered the country on a temporary visa with the intention of working. And according to Politico, Melania's version of how she obtained visas are more consistent with the temporary B-1 or B-2 versions, as opposed to the H-1B visa that would have allowed her to legally work.

The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to TheWrap's request for comment.
