  • First Lady Melania Trump's Mom & Dad Become US Citizens

While the Knavs now live in Mar-a-Lago and Trump Tower in New York City, they didn't always live in luxury.

Beyond the additional security present at the ceremony, the Knavs followed the same process of tests, interviews, and paperwork that every other citizenship candidate has to complete.

Viktor and Amalija Knavs, Melania Trump's Slovenian-born parents, took the oath of citizenship in NY on Thursday, their lawyer confirmed.

It's unclear when they obtained their green cards, but usually, permanent residents have to hold green cards for five years before applying for citizenship. Stephanie Grisham, a spokeswoman for the first lady, declined to comment on the Knavses' citizenship proceedings or whether the first lady supports her husband's efforts to limit family-based sponsorship.

Viktor and Amalija Knavs took their oaths in NY, the Associated Press reports. Wildes said the first lady sponsored her parents for their green cards, and once eligible, they applied for citizenship.

They had been living in the U.S.as permanent residents. Green cards can also be obtained through employment, receiving asylum or refugee status, or in other special circumstances.

There has been speculation that the President Donald Trump's in-laws may have benefited from the "chain migration" process that he has claimed endangers Americans and vowed to restrict. "I've been a very staunch advocate against the president's policies myself as an immigration lawyer", Wildes said.

Their daughter, Melania, was raised under Communist rule in the town of Sevnica where her father worked as a auto dealer and her mom in a textile factory.

Although Melania started from humble roots, she launched a successful modeling career prior to her marriage to the president.
