Closing Thought–25Jul18

I have pretty much stayed away from the immigration stories….basically because there is just too much bullshit circling around the subject (silly noise)……but the other day a friend sent my something in an email and asked if I had heard anything about this situation…..

L. Francis Cissna, director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), revealed to the Associated Press (AP) that his agency would be creating a task force to find and denaturalize immigrants who, in the agency’s view, should not have been naturalized in the first place.

According to the AP report, Cissna’s task force would be focused on “cases of immigrants who were ordered deported and are suspected of using fake identities to later get green cards and citizenship through naturalization.”

But the announcement raised immediate concerns that the agency may in fact begin targeting any naturalized citizens the administration deems undesirable, stripping them of their citizenship and expelling them from the country on whatever pretext the government might choose.

I had to admit that I had not heard or read of this situation at all……and I can see the danger here……this situation could become political at the drop of a hat.

Has anyone heard of this?  If so, please share with the readers of IST that may be interested…..

  1. We had a recent scandal where many West Indian immigrants were going to be denied citizenship. There was a huge outcry, and it is being overturned. Most had been here since the late 1950s, and risked losing their rights, and facing deportation in some cases. I wouldn’t put anything past either of our governments.
    Best wishes, Pete.
