Melania and Bill Clinton with Donald Trump at the U.S. Open in 2000, Flushing, New York. Does anyone really believe that there wasn’t already an American woman as good-lucking as Melania was that aspired to be a model? And America doesn’t already have artists like her sister? Once they were in, of course their former Communist Party member father and their mother would come!

As can be seen, below, the high numbers of people becoming US citizens is both new and unsustainable.

The first unneeded immigrants of this immigration chain were on-the-make/draft-dodging Grandpa Trump and his wife. Then, Trump’s mother came in 1930, at the start of the Great Depression, when US unemployment was already at 10%. She was an unneeded worker and came because her sister had been let in, before the 1929 crash. This saved the UK from having to support one more hungry mouth, while adding to hungry mouths in America. And, look what a mess it has produced? If you don’t think immigration impacts the future of a country, for better or worse, look straight at the White House.

For decades, the US has let in increasing numbers of unneeded immigrants, Melania and her sister are but two. They were neither needed nor needy. With both children in America, of course Melania’s parents would eventually come. Will her half sibling come with his family, and his wife’s family, too? Imagine if she was one of a half dozen or dozen children, as is the case for many immigrants.

One million people is greater than the population of some US states. Wyoming has a population of 585,501 for instance. During the seven years of the Irish potato famine only a total of one million left Ireland and they went to multiple countries. This recent migratory flood is not comparable to historical immigration, as can be seen in the graphs above. Furthermore, new citizens from Asia, Latin America, and Africa get affirmative action, including business help and minority set aside contracts – all intended for people whose ancestors were persecuted in the past, especially former slaves.

Melania Trump shows how people have been working the system. First she reportedly came as a visitor under B1/B2 visa. Apparently that can now be converted to an H1B. What happened to having to leave the country and then apply for a job, etc.? According to research done by AP news, Melania started working illegally before she obtained the H1B. [1] Apparently after reaching her limit of H1B visas, she obtained an EB1 visa, in March 2001. [2] H1Bs are allowed to compete directly with American workers for jobs, and they do. Americans have even been forced to train their H1B replacements, as has been reported widely in the media.

Melania is lovely, but among hundreds of millions of Americans, there was another aspiring model who was at least that lovely. And, however talented an artist her sister might be, there is a talented American artist who could do whatever she is doing, besides reportedly hanging out in a $2 million Trump apartment. At the time that Melania and her sister immigrated, Slovenia was a prosperous European country. This blogger sat down for a chat with a Slovenian in the same year that Melania migrated. It wasn’t war-torn Sarajevo. It had gone through much hardship in the past, which they had survived. And, Slovenia itself is even more lovely than Melania. The only thing wrong with Slovenia is its nuclear power station – but the US has many more!

During the seven years of the Irish potato famine only one million left Ireland and they went to multiple countries. Thus, this recent migratory wave is not comparable to historical immigration. Furthermore, the earlier US immigrants were able to sprawl across the continent through theft of American Indian lands. The US has been taking increasing numbers of new inhabitants per year legally for decades with no apparent thought of planning for the future, and with no thought for multi-generational Americans with no other country to return to who also had dreams. These dreams didn’t include losing employment to less qualified or equally qualified immigrants or better qualified immigrants. Immigration policy needs to start balancing those who arrive (immigration) with those who depart (emigration).

This is a chart showing new permanent residents, who can then apply to be naturalized as Americans.

For the 8.8 million people they apparently mean total between 1900 to 1910.
The United States admitted more legal immigrants from 1991 to 2000, between ten and eleven million, than in any previous decade… By comparison, the highest previous decade was the 1900s, when 8.8 million people arrived,…. Legal immigration to the U.S. increased from 250,000 in the 1930s, to 2.5 million in the 1950s, to 4.5 million in the 1970s, and to 7.3 million in the 1980s, before resting at about 10 million in the 1990s. Since 2000, legal immigrants to the United States number approximately 1,000,000 per year, of whom about 600,000 are Change of Status who already are in the U.S. Legal immigrants to the United States now are at their highest level ever, at just over 37,000,000 legal immigrants. Illegal immigration may be as high as 1,500,000 per year with a net of at least 700,000 illegal immigrants arriving every year.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immigration_to_the_United_States

According to the AP, Melania Trump stated through a lawyer that she first came on a visitor visa (B1/B2) on August 27, 1996, and got an H1B visa on October 18, 1996. AP reported that they have documents showing that Melania was paid for modeling ten times between September 10, 1996 and October 15, 1996, in violation of her visa. obtained an H-1B work visa on Oct. 18, 1996.

A Putin spy in the White House? Melania’s father was a member of the Communist Party, under Yugoslav dictator, Tito. It was “an exclusive club whose members sometimes joined because of career ambitions as much as ideology… under Tito, there were clear benefits to being a member of the Communist Party, to which only a tiny percentage of Slovenians belonged… it is not clear how Ms. Trump’s father, Viktor, joined — available records in Ljubljana simply list him as a member…” Read : “Melania Trump: From Small-Town Slovenia to Doorstep of White House“, The New York Times Jul 18, 2016 https://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/19/us/politics/melania-trump-slovenia.html

Slovenia today is a developed country that enjoys prosperity and stability…
Slovenia has a highly educated workforce, well-developed infrastructure, and is situated at a major transport crossroad… Although it comprised only about one-eleventh of Yugoslavia’s total population, it was the most productive of the Yugoslav republics, accounting for one-fifth of its GDP and one-third of its exports. Slovenia thus gained independence in 1991 with an already relatively prosperous economy and strong market ties to the West…

Melania Trump’s Parents Become US Citizens
August 09, 2018 3:53 PM VOA News
The parents of U.S. first lady Melania Trump have been sworn in as U.S. citizens, an upgrade from their previous status as permanent residents.

Viktor and Amalija Knavs took the citizenship oath Thursday in New York City, according to an attorney for the Slovenian couple. The attorney, Michael Wildes, told reporters the couple applied for citizenship “on their own.” He did not specify whether this meant the Knavses had been sponsored by their daughter.

U.S. President Donald Trump has spoken out against family-based immigration, the process by which a family member living legally in the United States may sponsor another family member who wishes to move to the U.S.

Trump has said the process, which he has called “chain migration,” allows potential terrorists to enter the United States.

In response to a terror attack in New York City on October 31, 2017, Trump tweeted:

In January, in the president’s annual State of the Union address, Trump said, “In recent weeks, two terrorist attacks in New York were made possible by the visa lottery and chain migration. In the age of terrorism, these programs present risks we can no longer afford.”

Wildes told ABC News on Thursday that the Knavses had engaged in “a wonderful journey like most have — millions have — in getting citizenship and waiting the requisite period of time. … The application, the process, the interview was no different than anybody else’s, other than security arrangements to facilitate today.”

The Knavses took their oath of citizenship at a federal building guarded by police from the Department of Homeland Security.

The Knavses raised daughter Melania in the city of Sevnica, while Slovenia was under communist rule. Viktor was a car dealer; Amalija worked in a factory.

Melania changed her name to Knauss when she began modeling. She met Donald Trump in New York City in 1998.https://www.voanews.com/a/melania-trump-parents-become-us-citizens/4521882.html

In Sevnica, friends of Melania Trump’s family say her father Viktor Knavs was a lot like Donald Trump. Zdravko Mastnak says Knavs was ambitious and a good businessman. He says he always looked for a way to improve his life beyond the money he could earn selling cars at a state-owned company.” Excerpted from
