In America, Naturalized Citizens No Longer Have an Assumption of Permanence

ImmigrationProf previously reported on the Trump administration's signal that it would be considering a denaturalization campaign.  Masha Gessen in The New Yorker writes in depth about the possibilities: 

"Last week, it emerged that the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (U.S.C.I.S.) had formed a task force in order to identify people who lied on their citizenship applications and to denaturalize them. Amid the overwhelming flow of reports of families being separated at the border and children being warehoused, this bit of bureaucratic news went largely unnoticed. But it adds an important piece to our understanding of how American politics and culture are changing."
