CALIFORNIA, (KMOV.COM) -- State Senator Nancy Skinner of Berkeley, California is calling on the Trump administration to release First Lady Melania Trump's immigration documents.

State Sen Skinner and Senate Pro Tem Kevin de Leon made the demand as part of a protest against the recent executive orders regarding "sanctuary cities." That executive order calls for funds to be halted to cities defying immigration laws and those declaring themselves to be "sanctuary cities."

In a recent POLITICO interview, Sen. Skinner said,

"No one in the Trump operation has released any of the documentation to indicate what was the circumstance, or whether she had full legal status. We only know they had a lawyer look at whatever papers she chose to give."

Those senators have faced backlash from the opposing party. 

Harmeet Dhillon, a member of the Republican National Committee, said the calls for the First Lady to release her immigration papers was "below the belt" and "a cheap trolling tactic."

The White House has not yet responded to requests for Mrs. Trump to release her immigration documents.
