ACLJ Calls on Congress to Protect US


(Washington, DC) – The American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ), which focuses on constitutional law, said today Congress should introduce and pass legislation that President Obama must sign that’s designed to protect the homeland from radical Islamist terrorists – by preventing U.S. citizens who leave this country to take up arms with jihadists against America from returning to the United States.

“One thing that is very apparent from the tragic terrorist attacks in France is the mobility of these jihadists – able to move freely – in and out of France,” said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law & Justice. “This should send a powerful message to the U.S. and the need to take legislative action to protect our homeland. If U.S. citizens leave this country to take up arms with radical jihadists abroad - if they join the fight with ISIS - the Islamic State - or Al Qaeda - those Americans should pay the price. They should have their passports revoked and lose their citizenship. We urge the House and Senate to introduce and pass legislation without delay to do just that.”

The ACLJ has launched a national petition with more than 115,000 people urging Congress to take action.
