Gisele was central to her husband’s campaign

When Democratic politician John Fetterman was elected lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania, USA, in 2018, his wife, Gisele Barreto Fetterman, pinned a post on her Twitter profile: “Pennsylvania, your deputy first lady is a former immigrant. illegal. Thank you.”

Brazilian born in Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro, Gisele never hid that she lived for 15 years as an illegal immigrant in the US until she obtained her green card (residence visa) in 2005 and her citizenship in 2009.

But in 2018, the claim was remarkable because she had been called “illegal” by a rival of her husband.

Gisele’s response, however, showed that she is not ashamed of her story and that she would not let it be used as an offense.
