Your passport is property of the State Department and can be revoked at any time. But under current US law, an American citizen or permanent resident can not lawfully be denied entry to the United States, whether or not they have a passport in hand.

OTOH, the entrant bears the burden of proof regarding their citizenship. That can be potentially difficult depending on one's circumstances.
