A recent case has shown the importance to all naturalized citizens to know their rights, and to know them well. Wilsonis Ayala-Villanueva was born in El Salvador in 1973, and became a U.S Citizen in 1987. He has been detained multiple times over the years equaling nearly three years of jail time, and Ayela claims the U.S government has attempted to deport him four times.
The complaint filed by Ayela claims that on three separate occasions, the judge would order the proceedings terminated based on the findings that the plaintiff was a United States citizen. Though a naturalized citizen may be deported, his citizenship must first be revoked, and there is no evidence that this has ever been attempted against Ayela.
Ayela is now suing the U.S government for damages for constitutional violations, false arrest, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. He is currently incarcerated in Texas, for reasons that are not included in the complaint.
With the rapid changes in immigration laws and regulations, it is vital that individuals stay abreast of new information and their rights so they can receive the treatment that they deserve,whatever the situation. If you are looking to become a citizen, or were recently naturalized, it is important to speak with an experienced legal professional, someone who can help guide you through this somewhat confusing process.
