Right now, I am green card holder. I just want to know how to get back to my home country if I applied the asylum from there? After I become a us citizen, can I go back and return to US without any legal problems? thank you so much!
Citizenship can be revoked if it is discovered that it was obtained by fraud or misrepresentation however it is very unlikely you will have a problem once you are a USC. i do not suggest you return to the country from which you were granted asylum while you are a greencard holder.
The problem with going back to your home country after getting your green card through asylum is it suggests to the US government that you do not fear persecution, the very reason why you were given a green card in the first place. It is true that conditions in a country can change such that you legitimately no longer fear persecution, but going back definitely still could raise eyebrows, especially at a naturalization interview.
