Melania Trump released a letter from her lawyer saying she immigrated to the US legally



Amidst questions concerning her immigration, Donald Trump's third wife Melania Trump released a letter from her lawyer on Wednesday that addressed questions concerning her employment as a model in the 1990s. 

Michael J. Wildes, a Trump lawyer who discloses in the letter that he's worked for a few of the family's companies, writes that questions suggesting that Trump modeled illegally in the U.S. are "not supported by the record, and therefore completely without merit." 

Melania Trump tweeted the document out Wednesday night. 

Making sense of the timelines

News organizations began to question Mrs. Trump after some claimed the timeline of her arrival in the United States in the mid '90s didn't make sense. 

Politico and the Washington Post showed interest after the New York Post released <b>modeling photos of Trump supposedly taken in 1995</b>, which was before Mrs. Trump said she was legally allowed to work in the United States.

Wildes wrote that the timeline constructed by the media was incorrect, and that their understanding of how Trump's visa was issued was flawed.

Some online are asking for the Melania's visa, referencing the birther controversy. 

Many are also pointing out there's some irony in Melania's immigration history.
