LOL WUT?! Melania Trump Might Have Actually Been An Undocumented Immigrant

It’s no secret that Donald Trump is extremely anti-immigrant and wants to deport upwards of 11 million undocumented people.

Which is strange because Melania Trump, his third and current wife, might have actually been one at some point. Yuuup, you read that right.

Let me explain: Remember those photos of Melania Trump that were published recently? Those were allegedly taken in 1995 in New York City.

Melania Trump has repeatedly said that she did things the “right” way when she came to the United States, which she claims happened in 1996. On multiple occasions, she told reporters that she always went back to Slovenia, her birth country, to renew her visa before returning to the United States.

“I came here for my career, and I did so well, I moved here,” Melania Trump told Harper’s Bazaar back in January.  “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. And it was a long process.”

This is an important fact because there are two types of visas: One that lets you work in the United States, and one that doesn’t.

The visa that lets you work in this country legally usually lasts up to three years, which means that there’s no need to leave the U.S. on the reg. The visa that DOESN’T let you work in the United States usually lasts for six months, which means that you have to leave the country and get another visa.

What Melania Trump says she was doing sounds a lot more like the second scenario, which means that if she was entering the United States with a non-working visa, and she still participated in a photo shoot that she got paid for, she broke immigration law.

This of course is all circumstantial evidence, but hey, Trump has made wilder accusations on less. (Like Obama’s birth certificate nonsense.) So if he can do it to others, it can be done to him.

So, Melania, until you show us your papers, until you release the documents pertaining to your visa, we are just going to assume that your bigot, anti-immigrant husband is married to someone who at one point in her life was an undocumented immigrant.

Nope, sorry, that doesn’t count. And while I’m at it, until he releases his tax returns, I’m just going to assume that Donald Trump is not as rich as he says he is.

At Least 17 Dead And Hundreds Injured Following Massive Protests Across Colombia

At Least 17 Dead And Hundreds Injured Following Massive Protests Across Colombia

A massive protest movement that swept across Colombia seems to have paid off – at least in the short term – as President Ivan Duque says that he will withdrawal the controversial tax plan that sent angry protesters into the streets. However, the protests claimed at least 17 victims who died during the unrest and hundreds more were injured.

Now that the president has withdrawn the controverial bill, many are wondering what’s next and will they have to take to the streets once again.

Massive protests claimed the lives of at least 17 people and hundreds more were injured across Colombia.

Unions and other groups kicked off marches on Wednesday to demand the government of President Ivan Duque withdraw a controversial tax plan that they say unfairly targets the most vulnerable Colombians.

Isolated vandalism, clashes between police and protesters and road blockades occurred in several cities on Saturday, and riot police were deployed in the capital.

Rights organization Human Rights Watch said it had received reports of possible police abuse in Cali, and local human rights groups alleged up to 17 deaths occurred.

After a week of protests, the government has shelved the controversial plan.

Faced with the unrest, the government of President Ivan Duque on Sunday ordered the proposal be withdrawn from Congress where it was being debated. In a televised statement, he said his government would work to produce new proposals and seek consensus with other parties and organizations.

President Duque, in his statement, acknowledged “it is a moment for the protection of the most vulnerable, an invitation to build and not to hate and destroy”.

“It is a moment for all of us to work together without paltriness,” he added. “A path of consensus, of clear perceptions. And it gives us the opportunity to say clearly that there will be no increase in VAT for goods and services.”

The tax reform had been heavily criticized for punishing the middle classes at a time of economic crisis brought on by the coronavirus pandemic. The government introduced the bill on April 15 as a means of financing public spending. The aim was to generate $6.3 billion between 2022 and 2031 to reignite the fourth largest economy in Latin America.

Federal Investigators Executed A Search Warrant On Rudy Giuliani’s N.Y.C. Home And This Is Just The Beginning

Federal Investigators Executed A Search Warrant On Rudy Giuliani’s N.Y.C. Home And This Is Just The Beginning

Months of investigations on Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani officially came to a head Wednesday morning.

The former New York City mayor’s dealings with Ukraine officials in 2019 have been under scrutiny for months by authorities who have been investigating allegations Giuliani lobbied for powerful Ukrainian interests. The investigations have also looked into claims that Giuliani also solicited the Ukrainian government for damaging information on President Joe Biden when he was running against Trump in the 2020 election.

There is also the matter of allegations that Giuliani attempted to find information on Biden’s son Hunter, who was part of the board of an energy company in Ukraine.

Federal investigators executed a search warrant on Rudy Giuliani’s Manhattan home on Wednesday morning.

The search was part of a criminal investigation into Giuliani‘s activities with Ukraine. According to The New York Times, “Prosecutors obtained the search warrants as part of an investigation into whether Mr. Giuliani broke lobbying laws as President Trump’s personal lawyer.”

Federal agents seized cellphones and other electronic devices as part of the investigation. The search warrant took place around 6 a.m. at Mr. Giuliani’s apartment on Madison Avenue and his Park Avenue office in Manhattan.

The execution of a search warrant against the former president’s lawyer is particularly shocking.

The warrant comes as a major development in the investigation that has been ongoing for some time and examines the former- mayor’s conduct during Mr. Trump’s first impeachment trial.

“It was also a remarkable moment in Mr. Giuliani’s long arc as a public figure,” noted New York Times. “As mayor, Mr. Giuliani won national recognition for steering New York through the dark days after the Sept. 11 attacks, and earlier in his career, he led the same U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan that is investigating him now, earning a reputation as a hard-charging prosecutor who took on organized crime and corrupt politicians.”
