if someone lied to get a Citizenship can they be deported? what happens to their beneficiaries who are already in the US?
State/Country relating to question: New Hampshire
It will be very fact specific as to the nature of the lie and whether there are any waivers available, but the short answer is yes, the person could be placed in removal proceedings, and the person's beneficiaries may be impacted.
if the lie was he was married here and his country of origin and he had a child who he pretended to adopt what happens to that child
I am not sure I understand. Did he lie on his N-400 Naturalization application that he was married when he was not, lie about his country of origin, AND lie that he had adopted a child he had not? I find it hard to believe that the application was approved with all of those inconsistencies, but if it was, and he is later caught,and he has no other Immigration options, the child will be without a status.
