It Can Happen LikeThis: Discovering You Are Not A USA Citizen

December 11, 2013, The following link, albeit about a woman from Mexico, is exactly how the discovery of ‘did you know you are not a USA Citizen‘ unfolded for the 1st USA Placed Victim-Survivor of Canadian Scoops when he was told – at the age of 42 – that he was not a USA Citizen as he believed, as he was told, and as he had – every time he was asked – confirmed to courts, on federal documents, when applying to vote, every time he was arrested, marriage licenses, legal name changes, etc.
Different from this woman, however, because he was declared a victim of a genocide by a truth & reconciliation commission recognized by the particular USCIS office assigned his case, he was granted USA Citizenship on an expedited basis and all violations of federal law that he committed as per his status as a victim of genocide were ‘dismissed’.
As I had expressed to him at the time he both discovered he was not a USA Citizen and that he was known to USCIS by a name other than that which he was using, it’s a good thing he didn’t travel to his vacation home in Arizona again before clearing this up; had any of his arrests happened in Arizona at the same time his ‘not-USA Citizenship Status’ was discovered in NY metro area, he would not likely have been shown the same consideration as per his status as victim of genocide.
So that all USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops can expect the same consideration, legislation and regulations need to be passed in USA recognizing USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops as a group of victims of genocide recognized by USCIS.
