Immigration Issues/after getting citizen


i have read some article about two year probation after getting citizenship about how if u are charge with any crime(as felony charge or misdemeanor) within two years it could face deportation is that true?

Hello John:

The revocation of US citizenship follows specific rules of the State Department and USCIS

1. Convicted for an Act Of Treason against the United States
2. Holding A policy level position in a foreign Country
3. Serving in your native Country’s Armed Forces if that Country is engaged in hostilities or at war with the United States
4. Serving in your native Country’s Armed Forces as an Officer or  non-Commissioned Officer
5. Lying to The USCIS during The Naturalization Process
6. Refusal to testify before Congress about your subversive activities

You can only face removal proceedings if you are not a US citizen, however a permanent resident with a criminal conviction may face deportation from the United States.
