Daniel Greenfield: Yes, Citizenship is Conditional…….


Damn straight it is…



Daniel Greenfield

“Stop Chanting ‘Send Her Back.’ Citizenship Isn’t Conditional,” Jim Geraghty writes at the National Review.


Of course it is. If citizenship weren’t conditional, there would be no mechanism for removing it.


We’ve removed citizenship from Nazis and assorted people who committed assorted crimes before coming to this country.


Why shouldn’t that apply to people with obvious Islamist sympathies? A category that Geraghty rehashes Omar’s case for belonging to.


Instead of a smorgasbord of accusations and allegations, her critics would probably be wise to focus upon the worst and most consequential ones. Since entering Congress, Omar appeared at a closed-door fundraiser for Islamic Relief. The Middle East Forum contends Islamic Relief funds organizations that work closely with Hamas and hosted extremist clerics. Islamic Relief contends they are “a purely humanitarian organization, which categorically has no ties to any political group.”
In the Minnesota House of Representatives, she was one of only two lawmakers who voted against barring life insurance payments to beneficiaries of suspected terrorists.
She’s urged compassion and lenient sentencing for Minnesota men who tried to join ISIS. She has argued that the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Database is “dangerous.”
