Melania Trump's parents become citizens through "chain migration".

Viktor and Amalija made an appearance with their attorney, Michael Wildes, outside the federal building in Manhattan where they took the citizenship oath.

It is believed that Melania Trump, who is a U.S. citizen, has sponsored her parents for permanent residency.

Wildes said the term was a "dirtier" way of describing "a bedrock of our immigration process when it comes to family reunification", the Times reported.

President Donald Trump should have been moved this week when our nation of immigrants accepted two new Americans: first lady Melania Trump's parents, Amalia and Viktor Knavs.

The president in January proposed ending most family-based immigration and replacing it with a skills-based system.

President Trump has railed against family-based or "chain" immigration in the past.

The couple's lawyer said they had "travailed a wonderful journey". "Once they had the green card, they then applied for citizenship when they were eligible", he said.

Viktor and Amalija Knavs, who are from Slovenia, had previously been living in the U.S.as legal permanent residents with green cards.

Usually naturalization ceremonies at the Jacob J. Javits Federal Building in the city are large events in which several immigrants are sworn in as citizens after reciting an oath and the Pledge of Allegiance. She said the first lady's parents "are not part of the administration and deserve privacy". The Slovenian immigrants, a former auto dealer and textile factory worker, had been living in the U.S.as permanent residents.

Amalija is 73. The first lady, born Melanija, changed her name to Melania Knauss when she started modeling.

When asked if the couple became citizens through chain migration, Wildes replied, "I suppose".

The First Lady became a USA citizen in 2006, after she entered the United States in 2001 on a coveted Einstein visa for people with "extraordinary ability" when she was working as a model.

Their daughter, Melania, was raised under Communist rule in the town of Sevnica where her father worked as a auto dealer and her mom in a textile factory.
