    • Yes, their citizenship can be revoke once convicted, time served and then deported. I know in some countries accorded to the crime committed by a non-national they can be deported once convicted and prison time served. I know of an Antiguan who had committed a crime in American and he was convicted and served jail time. His American citizenship was revoked and he was deported after he completed his prison time. I don’t know the Antigua & Barbuda constitution criminal act law for non-national citizenship that violated the criminal law act.

      • Mary-gene, a Naturalized citizen cannot be deported for actions taken, including criminal activity, after naturalizing. Now, sometimes if the U.S. government discovers that a naturalized citizen committed a crime BEFORE naturalizing that would have barred that person from getting U.S. citizenship. In those cases, the government can deport the individual but only after taking away their U.S. citizenship, during a process called denaturalization.
