President Trump administration’s policy on immigration could see the US #First Lady #Melania Trump being deported. In a suit before the Supreme Court, the administration has argued that even an “immaterial mistake" on official paperwork is enough reason for deportation.

Allegation against the First Lady

Melania was alleged to have failed to report her earnings on an unauthorized work in the US on a visitor’s visa; she is also accused of a deliberate refusal of mentioning the illegal act on immigration records.

A woman from Serbia was deported recently for not disclosing her husband’s years of engagement in the military, hence setting a legal and technical precedence for the First Lady’s deportation.
