house Bill H.R. 237

Revoking the Passports of Foreign Terrorist Organization Members and Affiliates

Argument in favor

Revoking the U.S. passport of someone who has joined or supported a terrorist group will keep America safe, and making their passport only valid for travel back into the U.S. will bring them right into the hands of law enforcement.

This seems like a very obvious thing to do for national security.

Terrorists shouldn't get passports. This doesn't seem complicated.

It should be common sense to revoke terrorist passports.

Argument opposed

Potential terrorists will try to workaround having their passports revoked by obtaining falsified passports. And, if the would-be terrorists have second thoughts, revoking their passports may cut off their only way to escape.

There is no definition of 'terrorist'. If you've noticed people that are clearly not terrorists are being charged under anti-terrorism laws. This gives the government undue power to use a nebulous term and further abuse it.

So now that Congress has passed a budget, they feel they can return to meddling in the business of the Executive branch? Enough already! How about focusing on a real jobs bill?

The government has not been very successful at keeping innocent children off the no fly list.
