Dear Ms. or Mr. Myth of Germany,

A fundamental principle of diplomatic relations is the treatment of one anther's nationals. What you raise is an issue for bilateral relations among sovereign states.

In the United States, it is the law of the land that when a naturalized American citizen has been found in a court of law to have lied on his or her immigration application, the USA may institute proceedings for deportation.
