  • The immigration lawyer who represented first lady Melania Trump and her parents told CNN on Friday that President Donald Trump’s attacks on “chain migration” are “unconscionable.”
  • Michael Wildes confirmed that the first lady sponsored her parents for green cards in a process known as family reunification, which critics have assailed as “chain migration.”
  • Wildes said the process is actually “a beautiful bedrock of immigration law” that inspires Americans to  do more for their country, knowing that their loved ones can join them.

First lady Melania Trump’s immigration lawyer lambasted President Donald Trump on Friday for his attacks on so-called “chain migration,” a derisive term used to describe the same process that his wife used to help her parents immigrate to the United States.

The first lady’s parents, Amalija and Viktor Knavs, were sworn in as American citizens on Thursday after years residing in the country on green cards. The family’s lawyer, Michael Wildes, confirmed to media that Melania Trump had originally sponsored them through a process called family reunification.
