In-laws of the American president, Donald John Trump are now officially United States Citizens. They obtained their citizenship through the sponsorship of their daughter and the first lady Melania Trump. The interesting part is that the sponsorship is on the basis of one of the categories of family visas that the administration was trying to end.
Michael Wildes announced on CNN that parents of Melania Trump, Viktor and Amalija Knavs has been granted the citizenship of the United States.
“It went well and they are very grateful and appreciative of this wonderful day for their family,” he said while addressing CNN.
Many questions have arose since then but the first lady’s office has declined to comment on this issue.
Viktor and Amalija Knavs are from Slovenia. They had been living in the United States holding green cards and also have been spotted multiple times in Washington after the day their son in-law have been made the president of the United States.
A source who is directly connected to Melania Trump’s parents and their immigration reported CNN that both of them were sponsored for the green cards by their daughter. The green cards will then allow them to live and work in the United States of America. This is exactly the type of visa that Donald John Trump and his allies have been trying to repeal, as he claimed it is dangerous for the country.
Michael Wildes did not want to comment anything about how and why Melania Trump’s parents got their green cards or citizenship Thursday. At the same time he chose to criticize the Donal John Trump administration’s immigration policies when he was talking to CNN.
Saying that “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.”
He further added, “I believe strongly in the principles of family reunification, which is a bedrock of immigration policy and law and has brought millions of people happily to our shores”.
There a lot of ways in which a person can get a green card, but the way that gets you the green card the easiest possible way is through family basis. Then there comes a small number of immigrants that get their green cards based on their employment.
