Wednesday on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) detailed a private classified meeting she had with the FBI to ask if any citizens from Minnesota were fighting with ISIS.
Bachmann said she was told there are two, which has since been reported, but the congresswoman stressed when she asked if they would be allowed to return the agents said after extra scrutiny they would.
In response the Minnesota lawmaker has proposed in the House, “The Terrorist Denaturalization and Passport Revocation Act,” which would strip the citizenship of Americans who join the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) to fight.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has introduced similar legislation in the Senate.
