Melania Trump’s parents Viktor and Amalija have become citizens of the United States. People who were involved in the process say they didn’t get any special treatment, which is amazing.
The Daily Mail reports:
Melania Trump’s parents make first appearance as freshly-minted U.S. citizens but their attorney says they got NO special treatment
First lady Melania Trump’s parents were sworn in as U.S. citizens in New York City on Thursday and obtained their citizenship through the ‘chain migration’ process that President Donald Trump wants to end.
‘They had gotten sponsored by their daughter and then once they had the green card, they then applied for citizenship when they were eligible,’ their attorney Michael Wildes told The New York Times…
Viktor and Amalija Knavs arrived at a Manhattan federal building Thursday afternoon escorted by security. He wore a dark suit and blue tie. She wore a light pink pants suit and a white shirt.
Wildes said they were sworn-in during a private ceremony for security reasons.
The two, as is custom, held their hands over their hearts and recited the Pledge of Allegiance.
Wildes called the ceremony ‘inspiring’ and ‘heartwarming.’
They got no special treatment during the citizenship process, Wildes said.
‘The application, the process, the interview was no different from anyone else’s other than the security arrangements,’ Wildes said on Thursday.
Congratulations to them, they look very happy!
