“First lady Melania Trump’s parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs, became U.S. citizens on Thursday, taking advantage of a program that President Trump has long railed against.”

“Trump has decried ‘chain migration,’ where adult U.S. citizens can obtain residency for their relatives, and tweeted on Nov. 1, 2017, ‘CHAIN MIGRATION must end now! Some people come in, and they bring their whole family with them, who can be truly evil. NOT ACCEPTABLE!'”

“Melania Trump became a citizen in 2006, five years after she came to the U.S. to work as a model. She came to the country on a so-called ‘Einstein visa,’ for ‘individuals of extraordinary ability.'”
