Applying for citizenship but entered as asylee under false passport


Registered Users (C)
So I am finally putting in my N400 application and of course I hope it doesn't take a year to get adjudicated...

In filling it out, I came across this question:
have you ever lied to any US government officials to gain entry or admission in the united states

I entered with a false passport from a visa waiver country and went through the asylum process and green card process. All well, no issues.
But N400 asks for this and I am unsure what to say. Thoughts, experiences?

Obviously the answer is yes. That's the truth. Since they already knew about it all through the asylum and permanent residency process, it's not going to affect your naturalization.
