Following reports that nearly 300 Americans are fighting alongside ISIS, Scott Brown, the Senator from New Hampshire, is calling on Congress to strip homegrown terrorists of their American citizenship.
“One of the greatest threats facing the homeland today is the mayhem that will happen when hundreds of American ISIS fighters return to the United States to spread their terror here,” Brown said Friday.
He added, “Their goal is to march down Pennsylvania Avenue and plant a flag at the White House, and mass killing is their means for achieving that goal. That’s why Congress needs to pass legislation that would strip the citizenship of any American who joins a foreign terrorist organization. We need to keep our country safe by stopping these American ISIS fighters from re-entering the country.”
Concomitant with his statements, Brown today released a new video ad calling out the dangers America faces against ISIS.
