Some of our readers may have seen the recent media reports that First Lady Melania Trump was granted what's commonly referred to as an "Einstein visa" years ago. The official name of the visa is EB-1. It's purpose is to allow immigrants who "have an extraordinary ability, are an outstanding professor or researcher or are a multinational executive or manager" to live and work in the country legally.
Immigrants to this country have been concerned and sometimes frightened by the actions of our current president. So have those who are seeking asylum here to escape violence and persecution in their countries -- and sometimes in their own homes.
While you want to avoid committing any crimes at any point in your life in the United States, it's particularly wise to do so when you're either visiting the country on a visa or are merely a permanent resident.
