340.2 Revocation proceedings pursuant to section 340(a) of the Act.

(b) Recommendation for criminal prosecution. If it appears to USCIS that a case described in paragraph (a) of this section is amenable to criminal penalties under 18 U.S.C. 1425 for unlawful procurement of citizenship or naturalization, the facts will be reported to the appropriate United States Attorney for possible criminal prosecution.
