Do not strip citizenship from people


A very few British Pakistani men have been convicted of sexually abusing children. They are going to have their British citizenship taken from them. These men face deportation to Pakistan. This move is unfair. These man have committed serious offences and have served terms of imprisonment.

People have never had citizenship taken from them before. Only in recent years have they started doing this. Even if someone commits murder he or she has the right to live in that country. Granting citizenship is a very serious step. It cannot be revoked. The government should not do this. Moreover, this is discriminatory. A born citizen cannot be deported. Therefore it is wrong to treat a naturalized citizen less favourably. It touches on ethnicity.

The Supreme Court ruled that this move is lawful. I do not quibble with that. I argue that it should not be lawful.

  1. Of course these animals should have there citizenship took away after committing heinous crimes, however o ly if they have dual nationality only if they were born elsewhere, Terrorists more than anyone should be kicked out or never allowed back, It should only be for serious crimes though as I wouldnt feel comfortable if the person had committed less serious offences.
    For anyone attempting or being involved in any terrorist activity against this country there should only be one thing guaranteed and that is losing citizenship because if you can even contemplate terrorist activity here it shows what you think us, that terrorist bitch begum being allowed back is despicable and cherie Blair should be ashamed, and its obvious she is only involved for publicity.
