The "broken link" seems to show that it wants me to login to the site, and that insisting I do so when I am using a mobile device is confusing the server and/or my phone.

For Mr. Hernandez, the consequences are worrisome. Deportation is not something he would face as a Cuban refugee and military veteran. But he can no longer vote, and he cannot leave the country. And he could face prison and fines for having falsely claimed citizenship and for voting.
In fact he could face removal proceedings couldn't he? False claim of citizenship. Not sure how it works for people from that far back. He may have started work at the Bureau of Prisons prior to the introduction of I-9. They're quite keen on deporting people who claim to be a US citizen on I-9. From the sounds of it USCIS are a bit non-plussed as well.

scrubbedexpat099 is an unknown quantity at this point

He could commit murder and not be deported, he is Cuban.

Reminds me of a guy on STEM OPT who wanted to apply for the extension, Employer needs to be signed up for E Verify.

No go, because he worked for the Government.... Did not do E Verify.

Would not do E Verify.

One of the many reasons there can never be CIR sic.

To head off topic a bit, this reminds me of a sad situation. I worked in a US federal prison for 2.5 years (it's actually just down the road from where I live) and a number of the inmates were Mariel Cubans... most had been picked up for various drug offenses. What's sad is that under US law, when an inmate serves his time and is released from a federal prison, he must be returned to his home country - he can't be set free in the US. With Mariels, of course, had they been returned to Cuba, they would have been executed. So this left those inmates in a horrid legal limbo. They had served their time, but couldn't be returned to Cuba - so their only option was to remain in prison... essentially for the rest of their lives! And so they remain today.

This article has been making the rounds on the immigration lawyer chat boards of late. My good "genius" friend Maggie Stock has been involved in those discussions. The situation noted in the article is more common than one might think.

The guy is definitely eligible for section 329 naturalization. Section 329 trumps many immigration violations. When I argued Bona v Gonzales I was asked if the former INS had ever attempted to revoke Chief Bona's naturalization because of his fraud. I noted that in addition to not having done so, INS would have re-naturalized him due to the military service of having served in two wars.
