Department of Justice Creates “Denaturalization Section” to Strip Naturalized Immigrants of Citizenship

On February 26, the DOJ announced the creation of an official section focused on taking away citizenship from naturalized citizens who allegedly obtained citizenship illegally.

Previous administrations had only focused on revoking citizenship from people who were convicted of terrorism, war crimes, human rights violations or sexual offenses.  Denaturalization was a very rarely used mechanism until now.

The Trump administration had already been giving extra scrutiny to new citizenship applications and now with the creation of this new section, likely will be giving previous applications similar scrutiny in an attempt to take away citizenship from naturalized immigrants.  This is the latest step in Trump’s ongoing attacks on immigrants and may have serious consequences for those who thought they were protected from deportation and other potential consequences of not being a United States citizen.
