Melania Trump's parents get USA citizenship

Amalija and Viktor Knavs parents of First Lady Melania Trump arrive with their lawyer Michael Wildes at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services at the Jacob K. Javits Federal Building Melania Trump's parents get US citizenship

Lawyer Michael Wildes said the Knavses applied for citizenship on their own and didn't get any special treatment.

They arrived and departed from a Manhattan federal building escorted by Homeland Security police.

Currently, the majority of green card recipients receive them via family sponsorship.

"It went well and they are very grateful and appreciative of this wonderful day for their family", he said in a statement to CNN.

White House adviser Bolton urges North Korea to act on denuclearization
When the officials meet, the main agenda will be preparations for another summit between the leaders of Seoul and Pyongyang. North Korea appears to continue dismantling a rocket launching site, a US think tank said, based on satellite images.

Pressed on the fact that the President has harshly criticized family-based migration and regularly refers to it as "chain migration", Wildes responded: "I can't comment on the President's politics when it comes to my clients but I have stood up against the President's immigration policies personally".

Her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, declined to comment.

Trump has railed against what he calls "chain migration", which the president contends has resulted in fiercer competition for blue-collar jobs for native-born Americans and introduces increased national security concerns.

Experts estimate those measures, so far resisted by Congress, would cut legal immigration into the USA almost in half.

Ruby Rose wants Batwoman to be someone kids can look up to
Kate Kane is the second Batwoman in DC Comics' history, with the first being Kathy Kane, Bruce's aunt and Kate's mother. She's even served as the primary featured hero for Gotham City in Detective Comics while Batman wasn't in the picture.

Wildes wouldn't say how long the Knavses have lived in the U.S. Under the law, permanent residents must live in the country for at least five years before applying for citizenship.

The couple are natives of Slovenia, where they raised Melania, but have been in the United States for more than a decade, says their immigration lawyer, per CNBC.

She attended high school in the Slovenian capital, Ljubljana, and changed her name to Melania Knauss when she started modelling.

She settled in NY in 1996, met the future president two years later and became his third wife in 2005. They married in 2005.

Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino happy with squad despite no signings

Viktor and Amalija Knavs, 73 and 71 years old, respectively, are retired, and they maintain regular contact with the Trump family, often traveling with the first family on trips to Mar-a-Lago and Bedminster, New Jersey.
