    If done for profit (tax evasion or similar), all of the above.

    If done with full settlement, treat them like any other possibly hostile foreigner.

    Americans who renounce their citizenship should be banned from working or living in the USA for 5 years.

    Then lets get all the people living here, who are immigrants from other countries, and aren't citizens, to get the hell out.

    Why would you bar a former US citizen, while allowing citizens of other countries. That makes no sense whatsoever.

    Re: What should happen to those who renounce their US citizenship?

    I completely and totally support the right of any American to renounce their citizenship and move to any nation which will take them. The US Government should collect all that is owed to them by that person and the doors should be shut after they pass through.

    Yes it does. The immigrant was NOT an American who decided to take a dump on the nation and its people.

    Well, Tigger, at least you are honest..
    And, I would imagine that I am on this "ignore list" and with good company and plenty of it....
