Federal Agencies Revoke First Naturalized Citizenship, of Indian American Man

He did not appear for court hearings and was ordered to be deported in January 1992. "The digital records were not available because although USCIS procedures require checking applicants' fingerprints against both the Department of Homeland Security's and the Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) digital fingerprint repositories, neither contains all old fingerprint records".

Chesler, of U.S. District Court in New Jersey, wrote in a January 5 opinion that Baljinder Singh, also known as Davinder Singh, illegally obtained his naturalization and ordered Singh's certificate of naturalization cancelled and his citizenship revoked.

In 2006, Singh married a U.S. citizen and discarded the asylum application.

In a statement, the Justice Department said the case was the first to arise from Operation Janus, a Department of Homeland Security initiative that has identified about 315,000 immigrants whose fingerprints are missing from government databases.

"I hope this case, and those to follow, sends a loud message that attempting to fraudulently obtain US citizenship will not be tolerated", said US Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Francis Cissna, who was appointed by Trump.

"The Justice Department will continue to use every tool to protect the integrity of our nation's immigration system, including the use of civil denaturalization", Readler added.

Reportedly, the first Indian to face such an action, the authorities believe that the former Indian citizen Baljinder Singh alias Davinder Singh entered United States by marrying a U.S. citizen and then later, acquired American citizenship through fraudulent means.

USCIS dedicated a team to review these Operation Janus cases, and the agency has stated its intention to refer approximately an additional 1,600 for prosecution. "This opened the possibility of him being subject to removal proceedings". While that application was pending, he also married a USA citizen and submitted paperwork on that basis to become a permanent resident, according to court filings.

In 2006, he finally became a naturalised citizen in 2006 after he married an American woman.

He answered "no" to questions that asked whether he had ever used other names or given false or misleading information to US government officials "while applying for any immigration benefit or to prevent deportation, exclusion, or removal", court papers allege.

According to court documents, the Justice Department and USCIS allege Singh, Parvez Manzoor Khan in Florida, and Rashid Mahmood in CT obtained their naturalized citizenship "by fraud". He has been living in Carteret, New Jersey. He said his name was Davinder Singh.

The report concluded that the fingerprints were a match and belonged to the same person, a finding whose scientific credibility Singh did not challenge, according to the judge's ruling.
