Fortune: “Some U.S. citizens are being stripped of their passports, with their citizenship called into question, according to a startling new report.
The Washington Post reported Wednesday that a growing number of individuals with birth certificates showing they were born in the U.S. are being denied passports, accused of using fraudulent birth certificates. In some cases, these individuals are sent to immigration detention centers and entered into deportation proceedings, while others are blocked from re-entering the U.S. after their passports have been suddenly revoked.
The common thread amongst those facing such accusations? They are Hispanic, and were largely born near the Texas-Mexico border.”
