Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, November 24, 2017

But recent news out of the Department of Justice would seem to belie that claim, as several immigrants naturalized as citizens who had been convicted of sexual crimes against minors were permitted to retain their citizenship and remain in the country during former President Barack Obama's term in office.

They can't strip citizenship from naturalized citizens. Only federal courts can but under very limited reasons.

Grounds for Denaturalization

Falsification or Concealment of Relevant Facts: You must be absolutely truthful when filling out paperwork and answering interview questions related to the naturalization application process. Even if the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) fails to recognize any lies or ommissions at first, the agency may file a denaturalization action against you after citizenship has been granted. Examples include failure to disclose criminal activities or lying about one's real name or identity.
Refusal to Testify Before Congress: You may not refuse to testify before a U.S. congressional committee whose job it is to investigate your alleged involvement in subversive acts, such as those intended to harm U.S. officials or overthrow the U.S. government. This requirement to testify in order to maintain citizenship status expires after 10 years.
Membership in Subversive Groups: Your citizenship may be revoked if the U.S. government can prove that you joined a subversive organization within five years of becoming a naturalized citizen. Membership in such organizations is considered a violation of the oath of U.S. allegiance. Examples include the Nazi Party and Al Qaeda.
Dishonorable Military Discharge: Since you may become a naturalized U.S. citizen by virtue of serving in the U.S. military, your citizenship may be revoked if you are dishonorably discharged before serving five years. Reasons for dishonorable discharge, which must follow a general court-martial, include desertion and sexual assault.

FTA:

Democrats attempt to portray themselves as the party that stands up for the well-being and safety of children -- aside from their support of unlimited abortion, of course.

Oh joy, the author is a nut job.

#2,

Laura, I tire of having to educate you.

Fox News first reported on lawsuits filed by the DOJ against five individuals to revoke their citizenship due to their having pleaded guilty to sex crimes against minors that occurred prior to being naturalized.

According to the Immigration and Nationality Act, individuals who obtain citizenship through the fraudulent concealment of disqualifying information can have their naturalized citizenship revoked -- a common sense statute if there ever was one.

Does it hurt being that stupid, Laura?

Hey BOAZ, Bush also didn't revoke citizenship from some immigrant child molesters. You don't lose citizenship for child molestation. They have to prove fraud in the naturalization process.

Could it be that fraud cases in immigration cases are ridiculously difficult to prove and sometimes these cases don't get filed because winning would be impossible? Is it possible that this is all for show and the DOJ will get its butt kicked in court? Should Boaz maybe try a source that isn't a Conservative rag pushing a party line rather than the facts? Yes, Yes and definitely Yes.

Does it hurt being that stupid, Boaz?
