  • Melania Trump's parents sworn in as US citizens report

First lady Melania Trump's parents have been sworn in as United States citizens.

The couple's lawyer said they had "travailed a wonderful journey".

Melania Trump, who has been vacationing with her husband in Bedminster, New Jersey, did not accompany her parents.

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.

Melania Trump became a USA citizen in 2006, after entering the U.S. on a coveted Einstein visa for people of "extraordinary ability" in 2001 when she was working as a model. He also called for eliminating a visa lottery program for people from countries under-represented in the U.S.

The idea that family-based immigration could be labeled as "dirty" might have a lot to do with the Knavs' son-in-law.

Experts estimate those measures would cut legal immigration into the USA almost in half.

Tribune Media terminates deal to be bought by Sinclair
Complicating matters is that Pai is under investigation for relaxing FCC rules to allow groups like Sinclair to add more stations. Sinclair is the nation's largest local broadcaster, reaching about 4 in 10 USA households through TV stations.

The US allows a number of ways for US citizens and legal permanent residents to sponsor family members to come to the US permanently, including categories for parents, adult siblings and adult children, married and unmarried.

New citizens are normally minted on Fridays, they said, and often the ceremonies are held at the federal courthouse across the street.

The Knavses raised Mrs Trump in the rural industrial town of Sevnica while Slovenia was under Communist rule.

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

President Trump, first lady Melania Trump, son Barron Trump and Melania's mother, Amalija Knavs, walk to board the Marine One helicopter on the South Lawn of the White House on June 29.

Trump hasn't commented or tweeted about his in-laws' newfound citizenship.
