    First Melania Trump, with the help of Donald Trump, gains an American citizenship illegally, and then she brings her parents to this country. Now they have "green cards", and are son to seek citizenship. Meanwhile, Trump seeks to end "chain migration".


    "Wildes would not say how the Knavses received green cards to live and work in the U.S.

    a process the president has referred to as "chain migration"." data-reactid="37">Immigration experts say the most likely way the Knavses could have become permanent residents is through their daughter’s citizenship — a process the president has referred to as "chain migration".

    “The most obvious way that they would have become green card holders is by being the parents of a U.S. citizen – i.e. Melania Trump,” said Stephen Yale-Loehr, an immigration professor at Cornell Law School.

    The Knavses theoretically could have applied for green cards through the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program or through an employee sponsorship, but that is unlikely Yale-Loehr says, as they are retired and 65 percent of green cards are given out through various family programs.

    According to public records, Melania's sister Ines Knauss lives in New York City, but it's not clear whether she was sponsored by her sister and Wildes declined to comment on the matter."
