Republican candidate for US Senate Scott Brown called on President Obama and Congress last week to acquire the ability to strip United States residents of their citizenship as a method of fighting terrorism.
“One of the greatest threats facing the homeland today is the mayhem that will happen when hundreds of American ISIS fighters return to the United States to spread their terror here. Their goal is to march down Pennsylvania Avenue and plant a flag at the White House, and mass killing is their means for achieving that goal. That’s why Congress needs to pass legislation that would strip the citizenship of any American who joins a foreign terrorist organization,” said Brown.
Brown said that passing such a bill is “common sense”.
This is not the first time Brown has attempted to pass such a law. In 2010, Brown and Senator Joe Lieberman introduced a bill, called the Terrorist Expatriation Act: “To add joining a foreign terrorist organization or engaging in or supporting hostilities against the United States or its allies to the list of acts for which United States nationals would lose their nationality.”
