Melania Trump’s parents sworn in as US citizens

Melania Trump's parents sworn in as US citizens report

Melania Trump's parents were sworn in as U.S. citizens on Thursday, completing a legal path to citizenship that their son-in-law has suggested eliminating.

First lady Melania Trump's parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs, were sworn in as United States citizens on Thursday.

They came and went from the ceremony at a federal building flanked by Homeland Security police.

President Donald Trump's parents-in-law have become United States citizens in a private ceremony.

According to experts, there are two main ways the First Lady's parents could have achieved citizenship status - either through sponsorship from their daughter or an employer. Viktor was a auto dealer. Both are now believed to be retired.

He maintains there should instead be a merit-based system, which prioritises professionals over relatives, and has drawn censure for his strident attacks on immigration laws and immigrants.

He said: "It's a dirty - a dirtier word", but added: "It stands for a bedrock of our immigration process when it comes to family reunification". "Once they had the green card, they then applied for citizenship when they were eligible", he said.

Verizon's Samsung Galaxy Note 9 BOGO deal leaks out
The company attributed the sluggish performance to the weak sales of the Galaxy S9, along with increased marketing expenditures. A recent photo leaked from Samsung's Russian retail store shows a retail box for upcoming Note 9 with spec sheet written on it.

Their lawyer Michael Wildes - who attended the ceremony with them - told reporters outside they had met the five year condition but refused to give more details, according to the New York Times. In November, he tweeted, "CHAIN MIGRATION must end now!"

While the Knavs now live in Mar-a-Lago and Trump Tower in New York City, they didn't always live in luxury.

Typically, naturalisation ceremonies at 26 Federal Plaza are large events, where groups of immigrants are sworn in as citizens en masse, after reciting an oath and the Pledge of Allegiance.

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.

Melania Trump was born in 1970 and during her childhood Slovenia, then part of Yugoslavia, was ruled by Josip Broz Tito, a communist dictator who nonetheless allowed more freedoms than other Eastern bloc leaders.

Melania Trump's parents have been sworn in as U.S. citizens.

Around the same time the Knavses were completing the ceremony, he was tweeting his rage about the ongoing Russian Federation probe ("an illegally brought Rigged Witch Hunt") and his excitement about plans for a sixth branch of the military ("Space Force all the way!").
