Billy Lawless has been a very prominent agitator for overturning the immigration laws of the US, to the extent that he was trotted out by Obama here in Chicago in conjunction with Obama’s executive action relating to non-enforcement of immigration law. As reported in the Irish Times, he was very involved in having the State of Illinois  grant driving licenses to illegals. He became a US citizen, and has now been appointed a member of the Irish Senate.

This appears to directly and publicly contradict his oath of naturalization.

“I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and  fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty, of whom or which I have  heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws  of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true  faith and allegiance to the same “
Do you know of any legal advocacy group that can pursue stripping Lawless of his US citizenship?
