    Thanks for making it easier to get the passports. People don’t hate I hope those who tried to “give up” their citizenship will use the opportunity to drop off their passport since they will not be needing it any more. the privileges afforded to some, the US citizens. Make best use of it US citizens. Now do we still want to prosecute the PM and St,Jean?

      Or even you did not read the article, if you did you would not post such comment! And even at that involve politics etc. You need to grow up and read a lot and not once or twice even more so you will get a gist of what an article is saying.

      They have reports when ever they visit and every year they visit at least once. Again a simple Google search on the matter would avoid you asking a silly question.
