Melania Trump’s parents Viktor and Amalija Knavs become United States citizens

US President Donald Trump's Slovenian in-laws became US citizens yesterday through "chain migration", a program he has repeatedly denounced, in which adult American citizens can obtain citizenship for their relatives.

Viktor and Amalija Knavs have been living in the U.S. as permanent residents on green cards sponsored by their daughter, Melania Trump, and completed the naturalisation process by taking a citizenship oath on Thursday in New York City.

I know it sounds extreme, but I'm 100-percent certain it's what President Trump would want us, as patriots, to do. Citizenship for Melania Trump's parents have set tongues wagging. "NOT ACCEPTABLE!" Wildes told The New York Times "I suppose" the Knavses obtained citizenship through chain migration, and called it a "dirtier" way of describing family-based immigration, "a bedrock of our immigration process when it comes to family reunification".

Hindustan Times, owned by HT Media Ltd, is one of India's largest publications that provides unbiased news, analysis and features on politics, sports, entertainment, lifestyle and more. "It's the current system", he said. "This is an example of it going right", he said.

"They had gotten sponsored by their daughter and then once they had the green card, they then applied for citizenship when they were eligible", he said.

The AP writes that arriving at the ceremony, the Knavses "slipped in and out of a side entrance at a Manhattan federal building flanked by Department of Homeland Security police". Viktor was a vehicle dealer while Amalija worked in a textile factory. "The question is what is the policy, and if a different policy is better, I'm all for it, but it doesn't mean people working within the current policy are doing anything morally wrong".

A united, cross-platform front-and a way of saying, in the midst of the Thomas Markle drama , they remain firmly behind Meghan. Meghan and Harry started talking about their next big milestone - children - in the months leading up to their wedding.


The first lady, born Melanija, attended high school in the Slovenian capital, Ljubljana, and changed her name to Melania Knauss when she started modelling.

Melania Trump became a USA citizen in 2006 after marrying Trump the year before.

It is not infrequently the site of protests, but on Thursday, things were quiet as the First Lady's parents came and went.

She settled in NY in 1996 and met Mr Trump two years later. Curious about the cameras, bystanders wandered over.

The Knavses' lawyer said they had "travailed a wonderful journey".

Back in December, a tweet from the White House Twitter account read: "This system of Chain Migration de-skills the labor force, puts downward pressure on wages, increases the deficit, and undermines national security". Now, we're certain his shameless hypocrisy sees no boundaries.
