Over 800 immigrants who reside all across the country -- possibly even in California -- were supposedly granted U.S. citizenship by accident. Now, after successfully achieving citizenship and naturalization, many of these individuals are facing accusations of immigration fraud. Those facing such accusations can seek legal assistance in the effort to maintain their citizenship status and avoid deportation.
According to a recent report, a fingerprinting error resulted in approximately 858 immigrants being granted citizenship. Many of these individuals are believed to have had pending deportation orders or have come from countries with which the United States has concerns and questions regarding national security. The inspector general of the Homeland Security Department claims that the lack of fingerprints and discrepancies over names and birth dates led to the granting of citizenship.
