Singh, a 43-year-old resident of Carteret, New Jersey, had married a USA citizen and received citizenship in 2006. But in February of that same year, the DOJ says Singh applied for asylum using the name Baljinder Singh.

Chesler, of U.S. District Court in New Jersey, wrote in a January 5 opinion that Baljinder Singh, also known as Davinder Singh, illegally obtained his naturalization and ordered Singh's certificate of naturalization cancelled and his citizenship revoked.

Singh's attorney could not be immediately reached.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice Jan. 5 announced they have revoked their first naturalized citizenship as part of a new collaborative immigration review effort, doing so to Indian American Baljinder Singh.

The Operation Janus has identified almost 3,15,000 cases where the fingerprints of the individuals are missing from the database, as per US Department of Homeland Security.

A naturalized citizen living in Carteret was stripped of his citizenship after authorities learned he used a false name around the time he entered the country a quarter-century ago, the Department of Justice said Tuesday.

The U.S. immigration agency plans to refer about 1,600 additional cases under Operation Janus for possible denaturalization.

"The Justice Department will continue to use every tool to protect the integrity of our nation's immigration system, including the use of civil denaturalization", he added.

The operation began after it was revealed that USCIS granted citizenship to "at least 858 individuals ordered deported or removed under another identity when, during the naturalization process, their digital fingerprint records were not available", according to a 2016 DHS memo cited by Rewire.

"I hope this case, and those to follow, send a loud message that attempting to fraudulently obtain US citizenship will not be tolerated", said US Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Francis Cissna, a Trump administration appointee. "Our nation's citizens deserve nothing less".

A security officer walks in front of the Martin Luther King Building and U.S. Courthouse in Newark, New Jersey on September 19, 2016. The inspector general recommended that immigration officials carefully evaluate the cases. While that application was pending, he also married a US citizen and submitted paperwork on that basis to become a permanent resident, according to court filings.

Once rare, denaturalization cases have been on the rise in recent years as the Justice Department has toughened immigration law enforcement.

Baljinder Singh, also known as David Singh, arrived in San Francisco in 1991 without any travel documents or poof of identity, the DOJ said.

But after Singh did not show up for a court hearing on January 7, 1992, a judge ordered him deported, court papers said.
