On renouncing your citizenship

Natural Nationality of Puerto Rico

Readers may be interested to know that the High Court of Australia has recently recognized a "natural" nationality category that is separate from citizenship and precludes deportation.

It's a majority decision, with no agreement about the basis, which makes it difficult to predict exactly what the courts will decide that the law means next.

I don't want to talk about what I think this means, because we aren't in GD.
