Melania Trump obtained US citizenship on a visa reserved for immigrants with "extraordinary ability" and "sustained national and international acclaim", according to a report in the Washington Post.

Nicknamed the "Einstein Visa", the EB-1 is in theory reserved for people who are highly acclaimed in their field - the government cites Pulitzer, Oscar, and Olympic winners as examples - as well as respected academic researchers and multinational executives.

Mrs Trump began applying for the visa in 2000, when she was Melania Knauss, a Slovenian model working in New York and dating Donald Trump. She was approved in 2001, one of just five people from Slovenia to win the coveted visa that year, according to the Post.

Becoming a citizen in 2006 gave her the right to sponsor her parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs, who are now in the US and in the process of applying for citizenship.

Well that's not exactly kosher, is it? For sure, DJT pulled strings on that somehow. I would like to know the fields of the other 4 people to try to see if there were any others whose approval were in anyway comparable to this. Is this common practice? Doesn't seem like it would be.

Any other fashion models who received the same visa? Is this normal?

Fun Fact: John Lennon and Yoko Ono were recipients of EB-1 visas.

Far more deserving ones.

I thought this thread might be related to the recent reporting that Einstein was a racist.

You are forgetting the visa exception fine print that includes girlfriends of VIPs.

That puts a different spin on why Trump is opposed to so-called chain migration...
