Did Melania Trump deserve an 'Einstein visa'?

Melania Trump was reportedly awarded an 'Einstein visa,' which is typically reserved for "individuals with extraordinary ability" like scientists, Nobel laureates, and doctors, but many are questioning whether the First Lady actually deserved it. Most immigration lawyers agree that, as a high-profile model, Melania did, in fact, deserve the visa. But others argue "merit-based" immigration like the kind President Trump champions shouldn't include supermodels. What do you think? 🤷

First Lady and former supermodel Melania Trump reportedly received an 'Einstein visa' to come to the United Sates. The EB-1 immigration visa is typically reserved for “individuals with extraordinary ability” and many are questioning whether the former model really deserved it. But many immigration lawyers say Melania was indeed qualified to receive the visa.

Marshall Cohen, a lawyer in Atlanta who specializes in EB-1s for world-ranked track and field athletes, said that he would not have hesitated to represent Mrs. Trump. “I am assuming she made a lot of money, got a lot of press and was on the cover of magazines,” he said. “She was probably a pretty easy case.”
“Do we need more foreign fashion models? Some might say no... We might need more chemical engineers. But if there is a fashion model at the top of her field, she could qualify.”

Some argue Melania was not deserving of the prestigious visa. Does the U.S. really need more supermodels?

Others find it hypocritical given Trump's stance on merit-based immigration. What exactly is "merit-based" about a Slovenian model getting a visa meant for doctors, scientists and Nobel laureates?

But others say we should leave Melania alone. There are so many reasons to criticize the Trumps, but this isn't one of them.
