First Lady of the United States Melania Trump's parents were sworn in as American citizens on August 9. In a statement to CNN, Viktor and Amalija Knavs' parents' attorney Michael Wildes said:
It went well and they are very grateful and appreciative of this wonderful day for their family.
Viktor and Amalija Knavs were reportedly living in the United States on green cards, according to the Daily Mail. Wilde said in a statement:
The application, the process, the interview was no different from anyone else's other than the security arrangements.
Wilde called the couple an “example” for following the steps to become a legal citizen:
'They would appreciate their privacy and we just thank everybody for their attention for this very important dialogue we're having on immigration. This is an example of it going right."
The couple's attorney would not admit is how the Knavs' received their green card initially.
The Knavs reportedly live in Maryland, close to their grandson's school, according to the Daily Mail.
