Hillary Clinton is behind it: United States citizenship is a privilege [...] It is not a right. People who are serving foreign powers — or in this case, foreign terrorists — are clearly in violation, in my personal opinion, of that oath which they swore when they became citizens. The White House has not issued a statement on it yet. I can definitely say I'm not a fan of this bill. It reminds me far too much of the Bush era. This was the sort of crap I hoped we had put behind us, but apparently not, Democrats can be just as guilty of this authoritarian crap. Where in the Constitution is the federal government granted the authority to revoke people's citizenship? If they're doing something illegal, arrest them. Why do we need to grant the federal government he power to take away people's citizenship?
