Chain Migration At Work? Immigration Attorney Revealed Melania Trump's Parents Became US Citizens
Melania Trump’s parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs, have been residing in the United States for almost as long as their daughter. But what is their actual immigration status?
Some people suggested that they are illegal residents with expired visas. Others said that they are living with green cards. But now, all the speculation is finally over as Viktor and Amalija can be officially called Americans.
The US citizens
President Trump’s in-laws can now walk the American land like they belong there. The First Lady’s parents received their citizenship through her sponsorship. This category of family visas has sought to end by the President’s administration.
Viktor and Amalija’s immigration lawyer, Michael Wildes, announced the news on Thursday, saying to CNN:
It went well, and they are very grateful and appreciative of this wonderful day for their family.
Melania Trump hasn’t released any comments on her parent’s immigration victory.

Amazing! Let’s make the Elite parents of his wife Citizens, but ban, deny & treat the rest of the hard working people out !! Racism at its best— Davar (@Dazarbeygui) August 9, 2018
The process takes years and years to be reviewed/approve/denied. Privilege and exceptions for the rich and White.— VitaminC (@IblockTrolls) August 9, 2018
Funny how that chain migration is okay when it benefits Trump.— Becca (@Becca428) August 9, 2018
I'm guessing they know someone. 🤪— Florence of Arabia (@ArabiaFlorence) August 9, 2018
The Knavs arrived in the US from Slovenia. The 73-year-old Viktor and his 71-year-old wife are retired and have been often spotted with Donald and Melania Trump since the presidential couple moved to Washington.
