If you want to read the whole law or article just copy and paste the title and google it.
obtaining naturalization in a foreign state (Sec. 349 (a) (1) INA);
In September, 1990, the Department of State ("DOS") issued a policy statement which dealth with loss of nationality. The policy statement indicated that DOS would presume a person intended to retain U.S. citizenship where:
- the person was naturalized in a foreign country
- took a routine oath of allegiance, or
- accepted non-policy level employment with a foreign government.
According to the policy statement, the presumption that a person intends to retain U.S. citizenship is not applicable when the individual:
- formally renounces U.S. citizenship before a consular officer;
- takes a policy level position in a foreign state;
- is convicted of treason; or
- performs an act made potentially expatriating by statute accompanied by conduct which is so inconsistent with retention of U.S. citizenship that it compels a conclusion that the individual intended to relinquish U.S. citizenship.
In order to ensure retention of U.S. citizenship, U.S. citizens may wish to assert their citizenship status by actions confirming a continuing intent to retain U.S. citizenship. These could involve a contemporaneous written statement confirming the citizen's desire to retain U.S. citizenship, submitted to a U.S. consulate or the DOS. The U.S. citizen should also continue paying U.S. income taxes, obtaining U.S. passports, and maintaining retaining property and other ties to the United States after the expatriating act takes place to evidence an intention not to relinquish citizenship. However, as stated in the DOS policy statement, such action is not necessary where the presumption applies.
Let me tell you I dont plan to be any of the numbered cases above.
As to the other section that was posted
I only have to show you the first paragraph and Im not putting the italics in it they were already there.
Section 349 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 148), as amended, states that U.S. citizens are subject to loss of citizenship if they perform certain specified acts voluntarily and with the intention to relinquish U.S. citizenship.
If you googled the first article this law is shown as the second listing.
I will not ever renounce my citizenship nor will I take any oaths with tthe intention to relinquish my U.S. citizenship.
I hope this helped some of you who had questions. I know this not only spoke to the anon comment that was not signed but also to the otheres.
Jennifer I will post later today about how we got paper from D.F.
