Being a naturalized US citizen, am appalled by people going through this long, hard, and expensive process just to turn out bad Americians. And with this I don't mean that you may fail in life and end up on welfare, or anything like that.
No, I mean people who don't like their new home country and/or still keep their first priorities elsewhere, like this one:[foxnews.com]
"Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar is facing backlash after her speech at a Muslim rights group’s event in which she described the September 11, 2001 terror attacks as “some people did something.”
Omar spoke at a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraiser last month, where she called upon other Muslim Americans to “make people uncomfortable” with their activism and presence in the society and criticized the Jewish state."
Now, as an immigrant to the US, you can be denaturalized. The rules for this are listed here [immigration.findlaw.com] , but they are very tough. In this case, I guess we could get rid of Omar in accordance with rule #3 by tying her to some Islamist group, but, I say that's not enough.
There should be a 5th, more general clause saying that you lose your US citizenship "in obvious cases of misguided loyalties" (or something like that -- am not a lawyer, so I leave it to other to come up with a good formulation here).
Or what do you think!
Once we agree to bring someone on board we also agree to take responsibility for that person. We don't want to create an underclass of citizens (which is why our southern border needs to be corrected).
I think Omar's voice needs to be heard and I wish we had a press that was interested in broadcasting it. Our main stream media probably still thinks Charlie Hebdo was just a misunderstanding.
I feel the disconnect occurs from the distinct differences in culture. Previously, most people who immigrated the the U.S. were from similarly influenced cultures (Western Europe). The Islamic belief system, where government and religion is closely linked, is incompatible with our principles.
