Questions over Melania Trump's 'Einstein' visa

But Axl saved his best shade for First Lady Melania Trump.

The EB-1 program is reserved for people such as academics, global business executives, Olympic athletes and award-winning actors who have shown "sustained national and worldwide acclaim, "the Washington Post reports".

Melania Trump's ability to secure her green card not only set her on the path to United States citizenship, but put her in the position to sponsor the legal residency of her parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs.

This photo of Donald and Melania is from 2001, the same year she got her green card to the United States for "extraordinary ability".

Melania Trump came to the US from Slovenia in 1996.

The U.S. government issued over one million green cards in 2001.

Michael Wildes, an attorney for Melania Trump and her family, declined to comment on whether she sponsored her parents for green cards.

How Exactly Did Melania Trump Get a Visa for “Extraordinary Abilities”?

"CHAIN MIGRATION must end now!" Axl has tweeted condescending things at the President before, and at a 2016 Guns N Roses show in Mexico, he even brought out a piñata shaped like Donald Trump for the Mexican GNR fans to beat up.

He said he was not surprised that so few immigrants from Slovenia obtained EB-1 green cards in 2001 because the criteria is stringent.

A White House spokeswoman for the first lady referred questions about her immigration process to Wildes. "There is no reason to adjudicate her petition publicly when her privacy is so important to her".

Aside from the fact that not many models have appeared in "Sports Illustrated" hugging a giant inflatable whale, immigration experts are questioning how the first lady qualified for an EB-1. While these were certainly high-profile accomplishments, Knauss was not well-known in the fashion industry, according to the Post article.

Melania reportedly dropped out of college during her freshman year before becoming a model, so Rose (and many others) question how she was awarded an Einstein Visa.

She stressed that she has "at all times been in full compliance with immigration laws of this country". But her husband's consistent focus on immigration policy and altering what he regards as lenient immigration restrictions has kept many aspects of the immigration debate in the spotlight.
