    U.S. Supreme Court Hears Arguments in Denaturalization Case

    This is going to be interesting to see Supreme Court's take on it.

    https://www.murthy.com/2017/05/22/u-...lization-case/

    During oral arguments, the Supreme Court justices repeatedly expressed skepticism at the government’s position: that any knowingly false statement is sufficient to denaturalize a U.S. citizen. They pointed out that the N-400 includes very broad questions. One, for example, asks whether an applicant has ever committed any “offense” for which she has not been arrested. Chief Justice John Roberts pointed out that nearly every person has committed some minor offense that has gone undetected, such as speeding. He inquired whether anyone who sped and answered “no” to this question could be stripped of citizenship. When the government attorney answered “yes,” Justice Roberts stated incredulously, “Oh, come on.”

    The offence one always amused me, I assumed that anybody much older than a toddler could never answer that question.
    Nothing in life is guaranteed, especially anything to do with Immigration.
