nationalsecuritylaw United States v. Faris (S.D. Ill. Mar. 20, 2017) (DENATURALIZATION SUIT AGAINST CONVICTED AQ SUPPORTER)

March 20, 2017

Buckle up, folks, DOJ just filed a civil suit to revoke the citizenship of Iyman Faris (currently serving a 20 year sentence for providing material support to al Qaeda). See 8 USC 1451 for the operative statute. I have no idea how accurate this is, but there is a Wikipedia page here addressing past instances of revocation (107 since 1979, it says).

The complaint is attached, the press release is below:
