Define American statement on new revelations about Melania Trump

Our immigration system is outdated, inhumane and unrealistic, as Melania Trump herself can attest to in light of the new evidence that she violated the law by working without a visa. Like all immigrants who struggle with this broken system, we sympathize with Melania. When she is ready, we urge her to share her full immigration story, as many have done on defineamerican.com. We offer her the kind of compassion lacking in her own husband’s draconian, un-American policies that label people as “illegal”–policies that she herself has supported and defended. But on behalf of millions of undocumented immigrants and our families and friends, we ask: given what we know now, does Melania Trump stand by her husband’s immigration policies? And if so, will she be abiding by them herself? If not, why should anyone else?
