In the past monthsб since the beginning of the year, American President Donald Trump has faced global criticism for his immigration policies, particularly his family separation policy that he recently rescinded.

Amnesty International in a June publication stated that acts carried out by the government and border agents constitute torture and maintained that there were better ways to handle illegal immigration than separating families.

However, some immigrants say they are unaffected by the drama caused by Trump’s immigration policies. Ironically, Ivanka Trump’s long-time make-up artist is one of these immigrants. Alexa Rodulfo grew up in Juárez, Mexico but moved to America in 2005.

By 2009 she had made a name for herself styling celebrities and began working with Ivanka Trump. Speaking of her relationship with the Trumps in a Refinery29 interview, Rodulfo says the immigration drama has not affected her relationship or work in any way.

Nothing has changed. While I set up [in her home], she is waking up her kids and spending time with them. Then they all come to the kitchen table where I’m ready for her. It’s really nice to spend family time with them.

Some people on social media have called out Rodulfo for working with Melania, mainly because the First Daughter did not speak out against her father’s harsh policies. Others suggest she is indifferent because of her legal status.

Rodulfo has not responded to any of her critics and continues to work with Ivanka, commuting from her abode in New York to Washington DC whenever her services are needed.
