Melania's parents' lawyer says they obtained citizenship through chain migration

Mr Knavs, who at 74, is two years older than Mr Trump, is thought to have worked as a vehicle dealer while Mrs Knavs, 73, worked in a textile factory.

When asked if the couple became citizens through chain migration, Wildes replied, "I suppose". "Some people come in, and they bring their whole family with them, who can be truly evil".

It is believed that Melania Trump, who is a U.S. citizen, has sponsored her parents for permanent residency.

A source familiar with the situation told Yahoo News that the Knavses received their green cards before Trump was elected and that they were sponsored by their daughter.

"It went well and they are very grateful and appreciative of this wonderful day for their family", he said in a statement to CNN.

Saudi Arabia's diplomatic dispute with Canada: An explainer

The first lady's office declined to comment.

Melania Trump - who has been vacationing with her husband U.S. President Donald Trump in Bedminster, N.J. - did not accompany her parents.

Ms Grisham directed further questions concerning the president's views on immigration - and the immigration status of his in-laws - to the West Wing, which did not immediately respond to emails and phone calls requesting comment. Trump has advocated a "merit-based" system, but has not proposed any method of admitting immigrants to the USA to replace those categories.

The president often rails against family-based immigration at his rallies, and has called it a pathway for terrorists to enter the country.

The plan, which Trump reiterated last week at a Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania rally, would limit immigrants like his wife to sponsoring only their spouses and underage children to join them in the USA - not their parents, adult children or siblings.

Melania Trump became a U.S. citizen after entering the country on an Einstein visa for "individuals of extraordinary ability" in 2001 as a model.

Experts estimate those measures, so far resisted by Congress, would cut legal immigration into the U.S. almost in half.

The Knavses' citizenship ceremony was kept hush-hush at the Jacob K. Javits Federal Building.

Wildes wouldn't say how long the Knavses have lived in the US.

She settled in NY in 1996 and met Mr Trump two years later.
