"They're not coming back to the United States to buy a house with a white picket fence. They're coming back to hurt and kill us and change our way of life."

MEGYN KELLY: Scott Brown is the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire. He's a former Senator from Massachusetts, and while he was in congress he introduced a bill to revoke the American citizenship of terrorists, which didn't go anywhere. Senator, you think well this seems pretty noncontroversial, and yet it was, why?
SCOTT BROWN: Well, politics always plays a role in the United States Senate, unfortunately. When you have a good idea, there are those who want to kill those ideas. It's something actually I was very thankful to see after I spoke to Ted Cruz, that he in fact filed to make sure that we have and we know that there are maybe 300 plus people fighting for ISIS, and what they've done is they've, I think, given up their citizenship and left it at the door, and if they go back and forth, they're not coming back to the united states to buy a house with a white picket fence. They're coming back to hurt and kill us and change our way of life. So they can't hide behind the Constitution and the rights provided by our Constitution, and taking away that passport, let's keep them with there with their new friends.
KELLY: It seems like they say, look, the reason the bill didn't go anywhere and the reason Ted Cruz's proposal has similar push back is you can't just ‘willy nilly' revoke the citizenship of somebody suspected to be a terrorist without giving them due process.
BROWN: Well, with due respect, it's not ‘willy nilly’. I can see how people would like to belittle and demonize this opportunity to really make sure we can protect our citizens. These are people who are online that we've identified who have said we are going to go to the United States, to march down Pennsylvania Avenue and plant a flag in the white house that we know are U.S. citizens who have taken up arms. We’re not talking about, you know, maybe, we sort of, kind of, think. We know who they are. We’ve identified them through reliable sources beyond a reasonable doubt. At that point they should not be given and given the protections of the United States because they have left them at the door. They have taken up arms to kill us and change our way of life, and if they want to stay in their country, their new country, then let's keep them there so they don't come back here to hurt our citizens.
