Government Could Strip Citizenship From Americans Under Enemy Expatriation Act
Published: 13 January, 2012, 21:35
When Barack Obama inked the National Defense Authorization Act on New Year’s Eve, the president insisted that he wouldn’t use the terrifying
legislation against American citizens. Another new law, however, could easily change all of that.
If the Enemy Expatriation Act passes in its current form, the legislation will let the government strike away citizenship for anyone engaged in
hostilities, or supporting hostilities, against the United States. The law itself is rather brief, but in just a few words it warrants the US
government to strip nationality status from anyone they identify as a threat.
What’s more, the government can decide to do so without bringing the suspected troublemaker before a court of law.
Under the legislation, “hostilities” are defined as “any conflict subject to the laws of war” and does not explicitly state that charges
against suspects go to court.
The bill, currently being passed through Congress, is sponsored by Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Charles Dent (R-PA).
Just thought I'd post this for inforational purposes.
What can the U.S. do to an individual when his or her U.S. citizenship is revoked?
