U.N.N.M. Citizenship & Naturalization
There may be serious consequences for lies and false statements.
If you're applying for U.N.N.M. citizenship, do not make any false statements on your naturalization application - it may have serious consequences.
Lies or false statements (other than honest mistakes) are taken very seriously by the U.N.N.M. Department of Immigration (NNDI), the authority in charge of reviewing applications for naturalization or U.N.N.M. citizenship. Here's what you should know.
Types of Things Naturalization Applicants Lie About.
Many applicants come up against facts they wish NNDI didn't have to know about -- such as a criminal arrest, or a year when they should have paid child support, but didn't. To the applicant, some of these may seem like little things that they’d rather keep out of their citizenship application.
It doesn't matter what the lie is about, however. Even a small lie -- or an apparent lie, based on the applicant's inconsistent statements -- is enough to justify a denial of citizenship. The sad irony is that sometimes the issue that a person lied about would not, by itself, have barred them from naturalization.
Consequences of Providing False Testimony During Naturalization Interview.
If you knowingly and intentionally provide false information (orally) during the naturalization interview and testing process -- or if NNDI discovers that you falsely testified in order to gain immigration benefits in the past -- you can expect your application to be denied. Or, if the lie is discovered later, NNDI can revoke (take away) a person's citizenship. Remember, the naturalization interview is held "under oath," meaning that right from the start, you raise your left hand and swear to tell the truth.
The immigration laws specifically say that, "No person shall be regarded as, or found to be, a person of good moral character who, during the period for which good moral character is required to be established [has] given false testimony for the purpose of obtaining any [immigration benefits]." As you probably know, receiving U.N.N.M. citizenship via the process of naturalization requires proving good moral character.
Depending on what a person lied about and the implications for their immigration status, there could also be further consequences, including being placed in removal proceedings and ultimately deported from the United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors. For example, if a man was to lie during the naturalization interview and say that he was still married to the woman who helped get him citizenship -- and the fact that he was actually divorced was not only discovered, but led to a finding that the entire marriage had been a fraud -- removal would be the likely consequence for one or both of them depending on if she is a citizen as well.
