PostSubject: Terror backers should lose US citizenship: lawmakers   Sat Oct 15, 2011 9:06 pm

Yahoo News wrote:
Americans who support or engage in acts of terror against the United States should have their citizenship revoked, said a group of lawmakers who on Thursday introduced legislation to that effect.

The bill submitted to both chambers of Congress by hawkish independent Senator Joe Lieberman, Republican Senator Scott Brown and Republican congressmen Charlie Dent and Jason Altmire come fresh on the heels of the killing of US-born radical cleric and Al-Qaeda militant Anwar al-Awlaqi in Yemen by a suspected CIA drone.

That killing was authorized by US authorities in a secret document, drawing fire from civil rights advocates who argued it permitted the execution of a US citizen without due legal process.

The so-called "Enemy Expatriation Act" is aimed at US nationals "engaging in or supporting hostilities against the United States."

Lieberman said in a statement that "the repeated attempts by the now-deceased Al-Qaeda leader Anwar al-Alwaqi to recruit other American citizens to strike our homeland demonstrates the necessity of updating our laws to account for an enemy who would subvert our freedoms to attack us."

Awlaqi's demise in an air strike in Yemen late last month rekindled an American debate over whether the federal government has legal authority to order the killing of a US national who is deemed a terror threat to the United States.

This is wrong on so many levels.

What happens to someone if they are solely a citizen of France and their citizenship is revoked?

It doesn't make any sense, which it is exile.

they do this to ppl who supposedly come from somewhere else, if they are not former citizen, even if they work they can be sent back, the roms they are legally on the territory, and france got a blam from europe for sending them back, if they are citizen, there is the principle of double condamnation, they are condamdned for their crime and then sent back to their supposed home

if only it was that easy from ppl of those country to send america or eurpean colon in their home when they kill thousand ppl it would be great Very Happy
