Senator Cruz to File Amendment to Expatriate Legislation and Ferguson Justice Still on Hold

On September 8, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), introduced legislation that would revoke US citizenship who is found guilty of joining ISIS. He explained on the Senate floor why the legislation was necessary …
ISIS is a study in oppression and brutality that is conducting ethnic cleansing against religious minorities in the region, that is targeting and persecuting Christians, and that is attempting to subject the local population to the strictest forms of Sharia Law. And ISIS has gruesomely murdered US civilians and, indeed, journalists on the public stage. It is beyond time for us to secure our borders. Representing the state of Texas, which has a border nearly 2,000 miles long, I know firsthand just how unsecured the border is right now. This week of all weeks with the anniversary of the September 11th attacks upon us, we can have no illusions that terrorists won't try to make good on their specific threats to attack America. And as long as our border isn't secure, we're making it far too easy for the terrorists to carry through on those promises. … That is why I have today filed legislation which would amend the existing statute governing renunciation of United States citizenship.
The proposed legislation is called the Expatriate Terrorist Act. It will be filed next week. Senator Cruz urged his colleagues to support the bill. Currently, it is believed that more than twelve Americans may be fighting with ISIS, some sources claim it to be as high as 115.
The amendment provides certain actions by which a US citizen renounces citizenship to include becoming a member of, fighting for, or providing material assistance to a designated foreign terrorist organization that is working to attack the United States or its citizens. That punishment, after required due process, prevents any American who joins a terrorist organization, is to forfeit the right of a US citizen and ever return to the United States.
Judicial law should also be amended to read that anyone who is found guilty of supporting, becoming a member of a terrorist organization that enacts acts of murder and terrorism be given the death penalty – like the international law of Geneva Convention provides for anyone who is caught spying or committing acts of sabotage; who do not fall under the protection of and designated as a prisoner of war. Acts of crimes against humanity must never be tolerated.

Continued investigation revealed and found that Ahmad Abousamra, top propagandist for ISIS is attending worship services at the Islamic Society Mosque. His father stepped down from the board of directors of the Muslim organization that operates the mosque when he discovered his son was being investigated by the FBI. The propaganda campaign in English through Internet websites have attracted at least 300 Americans to their jihadist cause in the Western world.

It has been over a month since Michael Brown was shot and killed in Ferguson, Mo., and we have yet to hear the police officer's version of events. … None of these answers has been forthcoming, which is odd and, frankly, suspicious. …the news that Eric Holder's Justice Department is undertaking an investigation hardly instills confidence that the truth will ever be known. … Police misconduct must always be taken seriously and be vigilantly corrected, but these numbers do not come close to proving police wrongdoing … A neutral investigation into the events in Ferguson is obviously needed. Holder's Justice Department, locked as it is in a space/time warp where all American cops are presumed Bull Connors, is not likely to produce it.
