In their efforts to ‘make America Great’?
The Trump admin is planning to go after people who have ALREADY completed the process of completing the process of getting citizenship….
Under the pretext of double checking old paperwork and cases?
A government that can’t handle the current workload is gonna add more and go after people who are legally in America….(Only six people have lost their naturalization status in checking back so far….653,000 where granted in 2014)
The director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) — an office established in 2003 to process immigrant applications for visas, work permits, green cards and citizenship — told The Associated Press recently that the agency is hiring dozens of lawyers and immigration officers to review cases of immigrants who are suspected of having lied to officials during the naturalization process.

Experts say that policy change, coupled with what came next, could vastly expand the number of individuals being referred for removal.
The agency said last week that starting Sept. 11 its adjudicators will have the ability to outright deny applications that are missing information. That’s a departure from an Obama-era policy of sending requests for more evidence or issuing a warning of their intent to deny the application.
