The consultants say they have seen a massive increase in interest in second country citizenship in recent years.

David Lesperance, an immigration attorney, told the Daily Beast that while ‘golden passports’ were once more popular with emerging tech titans trying to avoid IPO-related tax events, or conservatives wealthy educated in the art of tax evasion, it is the libs now seeking alternative citizenship to avoid an American future they won’t bet on.
