I’m trying to figure out why they changed that 1986 law?? I think if anything, it gave US citizenship some “value”. Nowadays, if you are American and live overseas, US Citizenship = the plague that is expensive to get the cure for.
*I received a similar, but different letter, when I applied for Canadian citizenship in 1984. It advised me if I became Canadian, the US would consider that I had relinquished my US citizenship, but that there was a case before the US Supreme Court to challenge this. Therefore, if I proceeded with my Canadian citizenship I needed to understand the consequence. I did, and became Canadian, by choice. I have searched high and low, but can’t find, and don’t think I kept the letter I received. I don’t know if the letter was from the US or Canadian government, but would like to get a copy, did anyone else get this letter? And, does anyone have a link or reference to what the US law was before and after the change in 1986? Thanks!
