First Lady Melania Trump's parents were sworn in as United States citizens on Thursday. First lady Melania Trump's parents have been sworn in as US citizens.

Her spokesperson, Stephanie Grisham, declined to comment.

Melania Trump became a US citizen in 2006 after marrying Trump the year before.

It's unclear when they obtained their green cards, but usually, permanent residents have to hold green cards for five years before applying for citizenship.

Viktor and Amalija Knavs are retired, and they maintain regular contact with the Trump family, often traveling with the first family on trips to Mar-a-Lago and Bedminster, New Jersey.

The president in January proposed ending most family-based immigration and replacing it with a skills-based system.

Trump has taken a hardline on immigration policy, criticizing so-called main migration that allows naturalized U.S. citizens to sponsor close relatives for permanent residency.

"They would appreciate their privacy and we just thank everybody for their attention for this very important dialogue we're having on immigration". He wouldn't say who sponsored their green cards.

While they reside for the most part in New York, AP notes that they've also spent an ample amount of time in the nation's capital helping to take care of their grandson, 12-year-old Barron Trump.

Melania grew up in a two bedroom apartment in Sevnica, a small city formerly under communist control.

The first lady was named Melanija Knavs when she was born in Slovenia but later changed her name to Melania Knauss when she began her modeling career.

There has been speculation that the President Donald Trump's in-laws may have benefited from the "chain migration" process that he has claimed endangers Americans and vowed to restrict.
