Posted on 11/27/2023 5:54:09 AM PST by george76
North Virginia doctor Siavash Sobhani stated he was in “shock” after a State Department official allegedly told him his U.S. citizenship was stripped over a bureaucratic reason, according to The Washington Post.
Sobhani, 61, who specializes in internal medicine, received a letter from a State Department official after applying for a new passport in February, according to the outlet. What the north Virginia doctor received, however, was not what he expected as he had gone through the passport renewal process several times previously without any issues.
Sobhani was informed he should have never been granted citizenship in the first place since his father was a diplomat with the Embassy of Iran.
“As a member of your parent’s household at the time of your birth, you also enjoyed full diplomatic immunity from the jurisdiction of the United States,” the letter obtained by The Washington Post stated. “As such, you were born not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. Therefore, you did not acquire U.S. citizenship at birth.”
Sobhani was then directed to visit a website where he could apply for a lawful permanent residence, per the letter. Since his discovery, Sobhani has reportedly applied for permanent residence, already spending more than $40,000 in legal fees which may never be resolved,
This was a shock to me,” Sobhani told the outlet, “I’m a doctor. I’ve been here all my life. I’ve paid my taxes. I’ve voted for presidents. I’ve served my community in Northern Virginia. During COVID, I was at work, putting myself at risk, putting my family at risk. So when you’re told after 61 years, ‘Oh there was a mistake, you’re no longer a U.S. citizen,’ it’s really, really shocking.”
Sobhani has written letters to Democrat Virginia Sen. Mark Warner and Democrat Virginia Rep. Gerald Connolly seeking their help in the matter. He noted he cannot live safely in Iran due to previously speaking out against the government, as well as having family involved in U.S. politics.
“I can only hope that the impact I’ve made in caring for our community of Virginians, your constituents, for the past 30 years will hold some weight in swaying your decision to intervene on my behalf,” Sobhani wrote
Connolly has since written back to Sobhani stating his office is “requesting all possible consideration in expediting” his case. It remains unclear how long the north Virginia doctor’s case could take; however, Sobhani stated he hopes to have it restored within six months
But he can be President......................
So he is a J6er in spirit. Cancel him.
He was within 50 miles of the Capitol that very day, so, GUILTY!...............
Things which could never be put together before are being cross-referenced in the enormous databases being assembled.
The Doctor’s Social Media posts must be leaning toward the MAGA side of politics.
Otherwise, the State Dept would have never even done this level of checking that he was the son of an Iranian Diplomat when he was born in the USA.
I have heard too many stories like this where someone who is the type of *immigrant* we want is kicked out of the country, while illegals, gang members, cartel members, and outright terrorists are pouring across the border and being treated like royalty.
There isn’t a thing this government does that is right or good for its citizens or it can’t screw up.
He must have voted for Trump.
Interesting that they can track this one guy’s history and location, but they don’t have a clue about where Biden’s 10 million illegals are.
Oh, the region is called Northern Virginia, not north Virginia.
Another example of the ignorance of reporters these days.
…there is one area of solid agreement among advocates on all sides of the debate: In the least, children born to foreign diplomats are not “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States and are therefore not to be granted U.S. citizenship.
But even that low standard is not being met.
A lack of direction from Congress has resulted in children born to foreign diplomats on U.S. soil receiving U.S. birth certificates and Social Security numbers (SSNs) — effectively becoming U.S. citizens — despite the limiting language within the Citizenship Clause of the 14th Amendment…
SIAVASH SOBHANI (SIAVASH SOBHANI MD PC/PHYSICIAN), (Zip code: 22182) $1000 to DEMOCRACY ENGINE, INC., PAC on 11/01/2012
I see that the doctor contributed to a Democrat PAC in 2012.
Maybe he left the Democrat Plantation and this is the retaliation?
That is the law.
After all this time he can apply for naturalization.

Do Obama next!
He was within 50 miles of the Capitol on Jan 6 so that makes him GUILTY..............
No doubt, intended as a joke but the truth is even stranger. Read on.
Even more astonishing: Every air passenger who flew into the DC area on or about Jan 6 is being subjected to Biden’s govt surveillance.
“On Fox News, Sonya LaBosco, Biden’s Director of the Air Marshals National Council said Air Marshals are surreptitously following Americans who flew into the DC area around Jan 6, 2021.
Vengeful Biden’s TSA has now ordered Air Marshals (who are DOT employes w/ no L/E duties):
<><>to follow J6 people who are not under any type of criminal investigation –
<><>they haven’t committed a crime,
<><>they have not been accused of wrongdoing,
<><>there is no evidence their J6 attendance was illegal,
<><>now years later Biden is using govt power to secretly surveil them;
<><>Biden’s govt is spying on innocents citizens merely flying to DC around J6.
The Fox News host weighed in, “You’re saying Air Marshals aren’t…tracking terrorists at all?”
HAMAS is laughing so hard they’re rolling on the floor while planning their next moves in the US...
Welcome to our experience with government. More incompetence cannot be manufactured.
Interesting that he was granted in the first place. I wonder if he knew he got “lucky” at the time, or if he genuinely believed he had been rightfully granted, having been entirely truthful in the application.
The Left is terrified of Trump, and will do absolutely everything in their power to intimidate and instill fear into his supporters, to prevent them from voting for him in 2024......................
Might as well do Kamala Harris too.
