Enemy Expatriation Act Strips Citizenship

To add insult to constitutional injury, along comes S. 1698, the Enemy Expatriation Act introduced by lame-duck Independent Senator Joe Lieberman (Conn.) and Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.). A companion bill, H.R. 3166, has been introduced in the House by Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.). The EEA is a blatant facilitator for new authority that would grant the president the ability to arbitrarily strip citizenship from Americans for “engaging in or supporting hostilities against the United States.” The term “hostilities””means, according to the text of the legislation, “any conflict subject to the laws of war.” http://www.themoralliberal.com/2012/01/24/enemy-expatriation-act-strips-citizenship/
