A citizen of the United States who willfully and knowingly uses a United States passport which was secured by a false statement, is guilty of an offense under § 2 of the Passport Title of the Act of June 15, 1917, when the use was for the purpose of establishing his identity and citizenship and consequent right to reenter this country from abroad.
