Denaturalization proceedings are serious because the person in facing them is at risk, as well as anyone who was naturalized through them.
A naturalized citizen can be denaturalized if convicted for having obtained naturalization illegally, through concealment of a material fact or by willful misrepresentation.
DHS cannot revoke citizenship themselves but they can recommend denaturalization proceedings in court. Anyone who had become a citizen through the person who was convicted and denaturalized can also be denaturalized. The Attorney General can cancel a certificate of citizenship or naturalization, but that is not the same as denaturalization.
Contact an attorney experienced in denaturalization proceedings immediately if faced with these circumstances.
U.S. citizens by birth cannot be denaturalized through this process.
