Becerra: 'Immigrant basher' Trump won't explain how wife became citizen [View all]

Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.) on Sunday slammed Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for not revealing how his wife became a United States citizen.

"The immigrant basher is unwilling to explain how his wife, an immigrant, gained her status," Becerra, a supporter of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, said on "Fox News Sunday."
"It's great for Mrs. Trump to have her status and her citizenship, I have no problems with that. I'm the son of immigrants. But what does concern me, is some guy who goes out and bashes immigrants...and won't explain how his wife gained her legal status."

A report last week raised questions about whether Melania Trump had a visa allowing her to legally work in the United States when racy photos republished last weekend by the New York Post were originally shot. It also called into question when she came to the United States.

Melania Trump pushed back against the questions, saying she has always been in "full compliance" with the immigration laws.
