The Center for Immigration Studies has released a new study by WD Reasoner which says we are not stripping US citizenship from convicted immigrant citizens who pose a national security threat to the US.
Here is what CIS Director Mark Krikorian says in a press release today:
WASHINGTON, D.C. (January 24, 2013) – In light of the discussions of a “path to citizenship” for illegal immigrants, it’s important to note that in extraordinary cases, the path to citizenship can be run in reverse. Naturalized citizens who acquire their citizenship through fraud, especially those involved in terrorism or espionage, can and should be subject to denaturalization.
The Center for Immigration Studies today released a new report by, “Upholding the Value of our Citizenship: National Security Threats Should Be Denaturalized”, that discusses the danger of allowing naturalized U.S. citizens who have been charged with serious national security-related offenses to retain their citizenship. Even immigrants who fraudulently conceal material facts in order to be granted citizenship remain citizens and receive all the benefits, including sponsorship of family members for immigration and traveling abroad using a U.S. passport. The report also reveals that the Department of Homeland Security has no method in place for reviewing such cases, which ensures there will not be any future improvement of the vetting process.

The appendix lists two Somalis that should be stripped of citizenship. One is deceased because he blew himself up in Somalia. Remember him! In 2008, the US government brought his body parts back to give him a decent burial because he and his family are US citizens. The other is the Christmas Tree bomber whose trial began just last week, here.
How about all those we’ve sent to prison lately for either terror funding or who have gone back to Africa for Jihad training? I think they should be on the list!
