It is important that you rate me positively and not blame me for bad news. Because of the information that I have given you, you now know how to protect yourself from being deported. You have made a false claim to U.S. Citizenship even though it wasn't your fault or intention. USCIS doesn't care because I don't think you will be able to prove it. There are 4 things in U.S. immigration
law that have no forgiveness, that not even a U.S. Presidential pardon works, and those are fraud marriage, trafficking of a controlled substance, money laundering and false claim to U.S. Citizenship. A person who falsely represents or has falsely represented him- or herself to be USC to obtain benefit under INA, federal, or state law is removable. This section applies to representations made on or after Sept. 30, 1996. IIRIRA §344(c). Congress has provided an exception and a person will not be subject to deportation or removal if:
(1) parents were or are USCs; (2) the person permanently resided in the U.S. prior to 16; and (3) the person reasonably believed at the time of making such representations that he or she was a USC.
Here are a few links to cases so that you do not have to take my word for it. You can see if for yourself:
I ask that you please not blame me for the bad news. This is not my fault and I have given you information so that you can protect yourself. Please let me know if you have additional questions and please do not forget to rate my service to you (not the state of the law) as that is the only way that I can get credit for my assistance. Even after you rate the service, I can still answer additional questions for you without additional charge. And don't forget that bonuses are always appreciated! Thank you.
