News video: Melania Trump's Parents Are Now Naturalized U.S. Citizens

Melania Trump's Parents Are Now Naturalized U.S. Citizens On Thursday, Melania Trump's parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs, became naturalized U.S. citizens in a private ceremony in New York.

Melania’s parents, who are Slovenia-born but have been in the U.S. for over a decade, have gained permanent legal residency.

Michael Wildes, the couple’s immigration lawyer, said: The couple "have travailed a wonderful journey like millions have, in getting citizenship and waiting the requisite period of time."

Having the president of the United States as a son-in-law made no difference in their acquisition of citizenship, according to Wildes.

Wildes also stated that their road to citizenship "was no different than anybody else's."

The White House declined to comment.

The situation is a bit controversial considering it is not apparent how the Knavs' gained their green cards amid Trump's anti-immigration stance.

Trump has frequently rallied against chain migration, though experts say that is most likely how the Knavs' gained permanent residency.
