Government could strip citizenship from Americans under Enemy Expatriation Act — RT USA

Detainee at Guantanamo Bay

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.
