Melania Trump’s Parents Become U.S. Citizens, Using Chain Migration

President Trump has repeatedly and vehemently denounced what he calls “chain migration,” in which adult American citizens can obtain residency for their relatives.

On Thursday, his Slovenian in-laws, Viktor and Amalija Knavs, became United States citizens in a private ceremony in Manhattan by taking advantage of that same family-based immigration program.

Asked if the Knavses had obtained citizenship through “chain migration,” their lawyer, Michael Wildes, said, “I suppose.”

He said chain migration is a “dirtier” way of characterizing what he called “a bedrock of our immigration process when it comes to family reunification.”

Melania Trump had sponsored her parents for their green cards, Mr. Wildes said in describing the process by which the Knavses had become United States citizens. “Once they had the green card, they then applied for citizenship when they were eligible,” he said.

Even as his in-laws were going through the process, Mr. Trump was denouncing it. In November, he tweeted, “CHAIN MIGRATION must end now! Some people come in, and they bring their whole family with them, who can be truly evil. NOT ACCEPTABLE!”

Lesseee - is this the same as a 9-month prego chica stepping over the border, dropping her baby as a "US citizen", and then importing half her village of illiterates that she's distantly related to?

As much as some people want to criticize anything Trump, his in-laws came here legally.  Chain migration needs to be gotten rid of because it's beeb terribly misused.  Possibly a good idea gone wrong by being used by some criminals.  Get rid of it.

If there is anything illegal that was done by the "in-laws" or by Melania or by Candidate/PrivateCitizen/President/Trump, then show us and there could be an interesting conversation (what a concept).

Trump says the practice is terrible and then his immediate family uses it. Trump supporters say the practice is terrible and then Trump's family uses it. Trump supporters then say "show me something illegal that was done!" because they are low IQ hypocrites.

The stupidity and sheep on the left is staggering. This is NOT what chain migration is. Chain migration is a broad social definition of people familybir not that migrate to a place due to “knowing” others who have done same. It could be legal or illegal. It’s simply mvt of people to a common place because they knew each other

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chain_migration

There is a big difference between chain migration where illegals are following legal of illegals before them vs legal people here being followed by people family or not following the legal process.

That's not how Trump calls it you idiot:

President Donald Trump in his State of the Union address called for tighter control of legal immigration and for an end to "chain migration."

"Under the current broken system, a single immigrant can bring in virtually unlimited numbers of distant relatives," Trump said Jan. 30. "Under our plan, we focus on the immediate family by limiting sponsorships to spouses and minor children."

The White House did not respond on the record for this fact-check, but it appears that Trump meant a distant relative is anyone who is not a spouse or minor child (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services defines "child" as being unmarried and under 21 years old).
