Protect Due Process: Amend The Enemy Expatriation Act

      Kearney, NE

Americans' rights have been under attack. Many of us have been aware of the provisions in the recent NDAA that allow for indefinite detention. My congressmen have assured me that this does not apply to American citizens. The Enemy Expatriation Act, as proposed, would allow for Americans to lose their citizenship without due process. The Enemy Expatriation Act amends the Immigration and Nationalization Act to so that citizenship may be stripped for " engaging in, or purposefully and materially supporting, hostilities against the United States.’;"
As worded however, this amendment would allow citizenship to be stripped without due process.

We must demand that congress amend HR 3166 and S1698, to include language protecting our Sixth Amendment right to due process, otherwise we will have no defense against being stripped of citizenship. At which point there is no due process to stop us from being detained indefinitely under the NDAA.

      This is America and Obama and this Senate and House (Republicans too, even some I considered tea party patriots) are turning this country into something I do not recognize and I do not want my children to grow up in.

      Stripping Americans of their citizenship is immoral, unethical and illegal without due process.

      What is the purpose of this legislation other than to provide ever more power to the executive branch? It does naught but further unbalance power in America.

      Check out on this website..a petition for congressman Ron Paul's amendments on this. Also Montana's citizens are recalling their elected representatives that voted for S1867(NDAA).We all must do the same with ours that have not followed their vow to uphold the U.S.Constitution!

      Yet another gross violation of those natural, unalienable rights defined by that seemingly irrelevant piece of paper which just so happened to form this nation in the first place. The terms "overthrow" and "put down" are so ambiguous that this bill suggests we citizens could be stripped of our citizenship simply by attempting to remove those individuals from office who we, by way of the Constitution, have the right to remove and replace, should we find them not fulfilling their Constitutional obligations. As if there are any public officers left (aside from the Pauls) who even understand what those obligations are.

      Is there no end to Congress' attack on the American People?

      First, The Patriot Act. Next the NDAA. Now this...

      The U.S. Government is completely disconnected from the people it claims to represent. With approval ratings in the single digits, several secession and recall movements unfolding, I say it's time for our politicians to start paying attention!

      Do you hear me Congress? Do you hear me? STOP YOUR SHENANIGANS!

      Repeal the NDAA and The Patriot Act.! The War on Terror has become the war against Americans!

      KILL THIS BILL!
