Melania Trump's parents get U.S. citizenship

Melania Trump's parents get U.S. citizenship

Mr Knavs, 74, was a auto dealer, while his wife, who is 73, worked in a textile factory. I've had the privilege of coming to this building for more than 30 years working with some of the finest families and individuals [.] This golden experiment, these doors that are in America, remain hinged open to lovely people as they have today.

Melania Trump became a citizen in 2006 after obtaining a green card.

He said the pair had been living in the U.S. on green cards sponsored by Mrs Trump.

Asked about President Trump's heavy rebuke of family-based migration, Wildes said: "I can't comment on the President's politics when it comes to my clients but I have stood up against the President's immigration policies personally". Wildes told the newspaper that the Knavs fulfilled the five-year requirement, but declined to give further comment.

Advocates for restricting legal immigration have pointed to the imbalance in favor of family connections as evidence of the need for reform, calling for a "merit-based" system that would choose immigrants based on need in the US. Under the law, permanent residents must live in the country for at least five years before applying for citizenship.

Melania Trump - who has been vacationing with her husband U.S. President Donald Trump in Bedminster, N.J. - did not accompany her parents. Trump has advocated a "merit-based" system, but has not proposed any method of admitting immigrants to the United States to replace those categories.

The US allows a number of ways for US citizens and legal permanent residents to sponsor family members to come to the US permanently, including categories for parents, adult siblings and adult children, married and unmarried. While the president never names Saipov, who obtained his green card through the equally maligned diversity lottery, which grants visas to people from countries that have had fewer immigrants, he has been known to detail the attack.

Experts estimate those measures would cut legal immigration into the USA almost in half. While they reside for the most part in New York, AP notes that they've also spent an ample amount of time in the nation's capital helping to take care of their grandson, 12-year-old Barron Trump.

The Knavses' citizenship ceremony was kept hush-hush around the Jacob K Javits Federal Building.

Wildes wouldn't say how long the Knavses have lived in the US.

The Knavses, both in their 70s, raised Melania Trump in Sevnica, a Slovenian town of around 4,500 people.
