The Expatriate Terrorist Act (S. 247) would change federal law to strip of their U.S. citizenship any adult American who takes an oath pledging allegiance to a foreign terrorist organization, or joins an overseas terrorist force to take up arms against the United States.
How can anyone, even the progressive democrats, think this legislation is bad? Are they preventing it because they think an American fighting as a terrorist against other Americans should remain an American citizen themselves, or simply because they are the ones who refuse to work together with the other side, an unsubstantiated claim the leftists have always leveled toward the Republicans . . .
