Grounds for Denial of Citizenship
There are several reasons why an international citizen, visa holder, or permanent resident may be denied citizenship. Some of the most common reasons are:
- Anyone who is deemed a risk to engage in terrorist or espionage against the United States.
- Anyone who has committed an aggravated felony (Removal & Deportation Link).
- Anyone who has a communicable disease such as AIDS, tuberculosis, typhoid fever, and other serious transmittable ailments that could pose a severe health crisis.
- Individuals who have certain physical or mental disorders. With the exception of those who can prove they have been cured of the condition or have the condition under control.
