Powerless, frustrated, and bankrupt, ARGU leaders issued a series of scathing letters in the fall of 1927 to TsIK Secretary Avel' Enukidze, the CPSU Central Committee, and the Nationalities Department of VTsIK.

The TsIK resolution reaffirmed the existing policy of extending "all political rights of Soviet citizens" to foreigners who resided on Soviet territory and were members of the working class.

According to one Soviet commentator, on 20 February 1932 "the presidium of TsIK SSSR passed a resolution that deprived people who lived abroad as emigrants, but still maintained their Soviet passport, of Soviet citizenship for their counterrevolutionary activities and barred them from entering the USSR on foreign passports.
In 1930-31, TsIK and Sovnarkom SSSR issued two joint resolutions concerning Soviet citizenship that replaced the 1924 TsIK resolution.
In addition, two ways of acquiring citizenship formally appeared in Stalin's first citizenship legislation: the basic method (obshchii poriadok) under the authority of TsIK SSSR and the central executive committees of the union republics, and the simplified method (uproshchennyi poriadok) under local control.
A few months later, a joint TsIK and Sovnarkom SSSR Resolution on USSR Citizenship of 22 April 1931 replaced the 1930 resolution.
For example, the 1931 law added the provision that individuals who were denied citizenship by their union republic central executive committee could file an appeal with TsIK SSSR and stipulated that local organs could decide certain cases involving the renunciation of citizenship.
Following publication of Stalin's 1936 constitution, the USSR Supreme Soviet (formerly TsIK SSSR) issued an important new citizenship law entitled "On USSR Citizenship." (132) Announced on 19 August 1938, this law was much shorter than the preceding three resolutions of 1924, 1930, and 1931 and basically represented a general legislative statement.
