Trump's DOJ Creates Task Force To Strip Americans Of Citizenship

Rights advocates expressed outrage and severe concerns after the U.S. Department of Justice announced Wednesday it is creating an official task force devoted to "denaturalization"—the process by which the government strips citizenship from foreign-born Americans, or naturalized citizens.

"Of all the dystopian shit—a department of denaturalization at DOJ might take the biscuit," tweeted activist Joel Braunold. "Means immigrant Americans (such as myself) will always have a threat to displace us if we step out of line."


The Justice Department claimed in its announcement that the motivation for the new unit stems from a desire to strip citizenship from terrorists or sex offenders whose citizenship was "illegally procured" by lying about past crimes.

"When a terrorist or sex offender becomes a U.S. citizen under false pretenses, it is an affront to our system—and it is especially offensive to those who fall victim to these criminals," Assistant Attorney General Jody Hunt said in a statement.

Officially termed the "The Denaturalization Section," Hunt said the unit "will further the Department's efforts to pursue those who unlawfully obtained citizenship status and ensure that they are held accountable for their fraudulent conduct."

Rep. Chuy Garcia (D-Ill.) expressed dismay over the new policy, tweeting that it evoked historical U.S. mistreatments of ethnic minorities.

"This is a nightmare," said Garcia.

2. Oh, yeah, uh uh, I don't see any likelihood of abuse there, whatsoever.

I wonder if Melania will be their first target?

3. "Have you EVER committed a crime or offense for which you were NOT arrested?"

They're basically matching convictions with people who said "no" to this question on their naturalization application

4. Melania should be the first to go, since she was here under fraudulent

circumstances before she became "legit". Likewise 45's first wife
Ivana, who had Canadian citizenship via a sham marriage which had since been dissolved when she met rapistDonald. Since Melania's presence here is fraudulent, she needs to take her chain migration parents and sister with her, since they have no
legitimate claim. Young Barron can stay if he wants, since he is a birthright citizen.
