The Trump administration has announced that they will be working to strip citizenship for foreign born criminals and those who gain entrance into the United States by lying and committing fraud. I wonder if that would include Ilhan Omar. She allegedly immigrated to the United States using a fake name to hide her father’s involvement in the previous harsh Somali government.
The president is starting a new section of the DOJ that will concentrate on revoking citizenship for people who enter the country by means of fraud. You can have your citizenship revoked if it is discovered that you are hiding a past life as a terrorist or criminal affiliations. Do you suppose Democrats will seek an exemption? I say don’t give it to them and deport Hillary and Adam Schiff on day one.
Assistant Attorney General Jody Hunt said:
“When a terrorist or sex offender becomes a U.S. citizen under false pretenses, it is an affront to our system — and it is especially offensive to those who fall victim to these criminals. The new Denaturalization Section will further the Department’s efforts to pursue those who unlawfully obtained citizenship status and ensure that they are held accountable for their fraudulent conduct.”
The need for the team comes primarily from a marked increase in such cases due to the efforts of fraud investigations by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the Obama-era “Operation Janus,” which uncovered hundreds of thousands of immigration cases in which paper fingerprint information was not entered in the central database.
Recent cases that would now fall under this section’s purview include an Egyptian al-Qaeda recruiter, an Osama Bin Laden collaborator, a Bosnian soldier convicted of war crimes, and a serial sexual abuser. The team will focus exclusively on those who both committed such crimes before coming to the U.S., and then lied about their past during the immigration process.
