Dear Editor:
How is the DOJ and DHS enforcing the Foreign Support Act? It is my understanding that people from other countries are coming to America to escape their child support, court ordered obligations to their children left behind in their homeland. What is happening to those people that gain residency here in America to avoid their child support obligations? Why is it that the Naturalization Application Form N-400 specifically asks the question "have you ever failed to support your dependents or pay alimony? This is a specific question asked of someone that is applying for US citizenship. It's used to determine if this person applying for US citizenship has "Good Moral Character", as outlined in the General Naturalization Requirements which states "A person also cannot be found to be a person of good moral character if during the last five years (of applying for citizenship), he or she has willfully failed or refused to support dependents, has given false testimony, under oath, in order to receive a benefit under the INA.
