  • Melania Trump's parents are sworn in as U.S. citizens

Melania Trump became a US citizen in 2006 after marrying Trump the year before. When Mrs Trump began her modeling career, while still a teenager, the whole family sensed opportunity, according to those who knew them in Slovenia.

"They had gotten sponsored by their daughter and then once they had the green card, they then applied for citizenship when they were eligible", he said.

"I can confirm they are green card holders and legal permanent residents of the United States", he said.

He went on: "It stands for a bedrock of our immigration process when it comes to family reunification".

The Knavs were sworn in as USA citizens on Thursday in Lower Manhattan, The New York Times reported.

Their lawyer Michael Wildes - who attended the ceremony with them - told reporters outside they had met the five year condition but refused to give more details, according to the New York Times.

Melania grew up in a two bedroom apartment in Sevnica, a small city formerly under communist control. The Slovenian immigrants, a former vehicle dealer and textile factory worker, had been living in the U.S.as permanent residents.

The couple was escorted to and from the Manhattan ceremony by Homeland Security police.

He did not specify how long it had taken the Knavs to complete the citizenship process, nor whether the 48-year-old First Lady had sponsored their permanent residency. Ms Knavs is 73.

She settled in NY in 1996, met the future president two years later and became his third wife in 2005.
