Here is the conclusion to our three-part blog 4 Grounds for Denaturalization & Appealing Citizenship Revocation.

Defenses against Denaturalization

The best defense to the possibility of denaturalization will generally depend on:

  • The specific reasons that USCIS has initiated these proceedings.
  • The stage in which the case is at (i.e., whether it’s in early stages or in the appeals process).

In general, however, some possible defense arguments against denaturalization can include (and are by no means limited to):

  • A person did provide truthful information about himself when applying for citizenship. Allegations of lying on citizenship applications are false and misinformed.
  • A person has been mistakenly identified as being affiliated with a subversive or terrorist organization. This may be because his name is similar to someone else’s who may have been affiliated with such a group or that a person is friends with someone affiliated with a subversive group and, yet, is not part of that group.
  • A person did not commit the crime he is alleged to have committed (and/or that may have led to an improper dishonorable discharge).
  • There is insufficient evidence for grounds for denaturalization, and therefore, a person should have the right to maintain his status as a U.S. citizenship.
  • Evidence the USCIS has against a person is based on misinformation, mistaken identity, etc.

The bottom line is that, if you or a loved one is facing the possibility of denaturalization, it will be critical that you work with the trusted Los Angeles immigration lawyers at the Hanlon Law Group for the best chances of retaining your citizenship and avoiding deportation.
