Haters Attack Melania’s Parents For Becoming US Citizens, Her Response Is PERFECT


Haters Attack Melania’s Parents For Becoming
US Citizens, Her Response Is PERFECT I wrote earlier today on the terrific news
that First Lady Melania Trump’s parents became citizens yesterday. But what wasn’t covered was how Melania
celebrated the event herself privately. It must have been a very personal and wonderful
moment for the family and I’m sure there was a big celebration over it after the media
departed. But while the family was toasting the happy
event the media and the left were still attacking Melania’s parents, claiming they used chain
migration and special treatment to obtain their citizenship. I don’t believe that is true. Allegedly, when Melania became a citizen in
2006 she used her visa to sponsor her parents. It took them five years to get a green card
and twelve years to obtain citizenship. That doesn’t sound like preferential treatment
to me… it sounds like they did it the right and legal way. Viktor and Amalija Knavs, who are 74 and 73
years old, were happy and all smiles as they were sworn in yesterday. There was stepped up security because they
are the first lady’s parents, but other than that it was a normal citizenship ceremony
and very moving. They took their oath to “support and defend
the Constitution and laws of the United States of America.” Cue the left to absolutely have a meltdown
over the event. But Melania had the perfect response… silence. As Viktor and Amalija Knavs left the New York
City courthouse Thursday morning, they could not have been happier as new U.S. citizens. They lived the majority of their lives under
communist rule in Yugoslavia – today called Slovenia – and now they are part of the
freest country on the planet. Can you imagine being free of communist suppression
forever? The feeling must be incredible. The Daily Mail reported, “Viktor and Amalija
Knavs have been living in the United States on as permanent residents on green cards. They arrived and departed from a Manhattan
federal building escorted by Homeland Security police.” As I stated before, their attorney Michael
Wildes firmly stated that there was no special treatment for the couple. “The application, the process, the interview
was no different from anyone else’s other than the security arrangements,” he said
on Thursday. “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,” he
stated. The Knavs have a home in Maryland. They stay near Melania and Barron to help
out with their grandson. Their home is near his school. They just want to enjoy being Americans and
be with their family, but the left is making it into something it is not and politicizing
their wonderful swearing-in as U.S. citizens. New York Times political reporter Astead Wesley
tweeted, “Melania’s Trump’s (sic) parents are now US citizens and it might be thanks
to the same ‘chain migration’ Trump has said brings ‘truly evil’ people.” His attack does not surprise me or anyone
else in America I would wager. The hate on the left on Twitter was off the
charts. I won’t even bother writing about it here. There is nothing threatening about Melania’s
parents. They are not a national security threat and
they are not criminals. They are ordinary immigrants coming to America
and we should welcome them with open arms and hearts. They are doing it legally and they are not
sponging off the system as they do it. They won’t cost taxpayers a dime and we
don’t have to wonder if they will commit crimes because of their background. I don’t view this as chain migration. Chain migration is when an immigrant, who
is either a citizen or a green card holder, brings over their entire family to the United
States. They aren’t vetted and don’t undergo a
background check. That is not the case for Melania’s parents
so the argument is moot. President Trump is right to oppose chain migration. Many of those immigrants are not vetted and
they end up taking jobs away from hard-working Americans. They are national security threats. Melania’s parents don’t even come close
to that scenario. And chain migration happens immediately when
an immigrant enters the U.S. Twelve years is a massive stretch for that claim. Trump wants the same system that Canada and
Australia have where you can immigrate to the U.S. if you have something to offer our
country – it’s a merit-based system. He doesn’t want them to immediately qualify
for welfare and government assistance, so they would need enough money to support themselves. My son-in-law did, why shouldn’t other immigrants? Melania was right to not even bother to respond
to this form of attack against her parents and her family. Sometimes silence is the best response. It’s not worthy of one. It used to be that the family of a president
was off-limits. But the left threw that excuse out the window
when Trump was elected. That’s extremely hypocritical. Melania is not easily provoked and she is
instead celebrating with her parents and her family as she should. It’s private and emotional. Her parents are not political fodder. Every American should congratulate her parents
on becoming citizens. It’s not an easy thing to do and it is no
small matter. We are a nation of legal immigrants supposedly
and we are lucky to have Melania’s parents join us. This is the home of the free and the land
of the brave and they are welcome here.
