Melania Trump released a letter from her lawyer on Wednesday in response to media questions about when and how the potential first lady arrived in the United States and received her green card.

“I am pleased to enclose a letter from my immigration attorney which states that, with 100% certainty, I correctly went through the legal process when arriving in the USA,” Trump, who was born in what is now Slovenia, said in a statement on Twitter.

The wife of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump had faced scrutiny about her timeline of when she came to the United States when the New York Post republished last month photos that seemed to indicate she had once worked as a model without a visa.

In the letter, Melania Trump’s lawyer said such reports were “not supported by the facts.”

“Because Mrs. Trump did not enter the United States until August 27, 1996, the allegation that she participated in a photo shoot in 1995 in not only untrue, it is impossible,” Michael J. Wildes wrote.
