Melania’s Parents Just Got U.S. Citizenship Without Facing Any Hardship

    First Lady Melania Trump’s parents became naturalized U.S. citizens, with apparent ease through a process that Donald Trump has strived to end. Just days after internal documents revealed that the Trump administration is devising a method to deny citizenship to documented immigrants, Melania’s parents attain the U.S. citizenship; as it is for the benefit of his own family, thus laws implemented by him for other citizens don’t work here.

    As reported by Politico, Melania’s parents — Viktor and Amalija Knavs, who are Slovenian citizens and have been living in the U.S. as legal permanent residents — took oaths of citizenship in New York City earlier today. It is still unclear how exactly the Knavs became naturalized, though their lawyer suggested to the New York Times that they obtained citizenship through family-based immigration, a legal process that allows citizens and legal permanent residents to sponsor family members.

    Trump has always been anti-family based immigration. In the past also, he has firmly criticized this process and labelled it as “chain migration”; in November 2017, he declared on Twitter that it “must end now”. “Some people come in, and they bring their whole family with them, who can be truly evil,” he further wrote. “NOT ACCEPTABLE!”

    Immigration attorney David Leopold, in a statement to the Washington Post, slammed the discernible ease with which Melania’s parents were able to gain citizenship, while the Trump administration won’t even let victims of domestic and gang violence seek asylum in the country.

    “This is the most anti-immigration administration probably in history of the country, except when it comes to this family, and the hypocrisy is just stunning,” he told the Post. “He and his administration are on a crusade to rid the country of immigrants, particularly immigrants of color. What can you say when the First Lady and her family have such an easy time?”
