Trumps Violated Immigration Laws

There is strong evidence that both Donald Trump and his wife Melania Trump violated immigration laws.

Let’s start with Melania. There are lots of holes in her story of how she came to the US. She says she arrived in 1996 on a short-term visa, which would have made it illegal for her to work here. But a recently published set of nude photos of the would-be first lady were shot in the US in 1995. That would make her an undocumented worker and an illegal alien. You know, the kind that Trump is campaigning against. Or does the law not apply to his wife?

Trump has said “These are temporary foreign workers, imported from abroad, for the explicit purpose of substituting for American workers at lower pay. I remain totally committed to eliminating rampant, widespread H-1B abuse.” And yet, Trump himself abused this program at one of his companies, and he even ripped off the workers he brought into the country by refusing to pay them the salary they were promised in their contract. It is clear that the whole reason he was bringing in foreign workers was so that he could pay them less, which is illegal. In some cases he paid them pennies on the dollar.

His whole business career is filled with examples of him violating the law and cheating people. Why would anyone think he would be any different as president?

    Also for those who say that Trump is his own man, of his 13 economic advisers 5 are major donors. What’s the bet his policies evolve to match the agenda of those advisers/donors?

    And all but a couple of “advisors” are in it for themselves, very few jobs created with their occupations.

    But just so you understand, they’re all tremendously amazing and only the very best Steves…
