Citizen: I renounce my U.S. citizenship. Gov’t: You’re kidding. You’re not a citizen anywhere else, and you have nowhere to go. Citizen: I really mean it. Gov’t: You can’t be serious. We would have to detain you. Citizen: I understand, but I really do mean it. Gov’t: No you don’t. D.C. Circuit: Problematic as it may be for all involved, this gentleman clearly does intend to renounce his citizenship.
