Indian Man Loses US Citizenship, Becomes First Case of Denaturalization Under Trump

Indian Man Loses US Citizenship, Becomes First Case of Denaturalization Under Trump

A U.S. District Court has recently revoked an India native's naturalized U.S. citizenship as part of the Department of Homeland Security's Operation Janus.

Singh was granted citizenship and naturalized under the name Baljinder Singh on July 28, 2006, according to the Justice Department and court filings.

A naturalised American from India has been stripped of his United States citizenship, the first case under a government initiative created to clamp down on fraudulent immigration, widened under the Trump administration. Chesler's opinion noted that Singh had not responded to the complaint, filed September 19, 2017.

The initiative identified around 315,000 cases in which some fingerprint data was missing from the centralized digital fingerprint repository. Those cases include background checks that were used in the naturalization process, officials said. "The Justice Department will continue to use every tool to protect the integrity of our nations immigration system, including the use of civil denaturalization".

The U.S. immigration agency plans to refer about 1,600 additional cases under Operation Janus for possible denaturalization. His fingerprints were contained in a paper file, and investigators had checked only the electronic system, thereby failing to catch him, the US Justice Department said.

Singh, who arrived without a passport or any other travel documents or proof of identity, was placed in removal proceedings and sought asylum, claiming that his name was Davinder Singh, according to the complaint.

In support of its complaint against Singh, the Justice Department submitted a lab report from USCIS comparing a January 24, 1992, fingerprint card under the name "Baljinder Singh" to a September 25, 1991, card with the name "Davinder Singh", court documents said. He also dodged a subsequent court hearing and was ordered to be deported in January 1992. The following month, Singh filed an asylum application under the name Baljinder Singh, and he later married a USA citizen. There are around 7,50,000 Indians alone living in the United States on H-1B visas and this incident further threatens the residential status of these people. Singh abandoned that application after he married a US citizen, who filed a visa petition on his behalf.

Baljinder Singh, 43, from Carteret, New Jersey became a naturalized citizen in 2006 after marrying his American wife.

The case was prosecuted by Counsel for National Security Aaron Petty of OIL-DCS's National Security and Affirmative Litigation Unit, with support from Deputy Chief Patrice Rodman of USCIS's Office of the Chief Counsel, Northeast Law Division and Immigration Services Officer Caroline D'Angelo of USCIS's Field Operations Directorate.
