Can your citizenship be revoked? - Part II

If you became a citizen through naturalization, it is possible that your citizenship can be revoked, but only a couple of circumstances will trigger that possibility. One example is if that naturalized US citizen obtained their citizenship by knowingly performing fraud or knowingly making a misrepresentation to USCIS in order to obtain their citizenship. If USCIS determines that a person obtained their citizenship through fraud or misrepresentation that person may be criminally prosecuted.

If this scenario has happened to you or someone you know, you should consult with an immigration attorney.
