Viktor and Amalija Knavs, the parents of First Lady Melania Trump, became US citizens today in a ceremony at 26 Federal Plaza in New York City. Their immigration lawyer, Michael Wildes, told reporters in front of the building that his clients had “traveled a wonderful journey” to become US citizens. But he insisted that the first in-laws, who are originally from Slovenia, were treated just like any other applicants for US citizenship. He said, “They have traveled a wonderful journey like most have, millions have in getting citizenship and waiting the appropriate amount of time. The application, the process, the interview was no different than anybody else’s other than security arrangements to facilitate today.”
