Brown advocates radical expansion of Obama executive order power
On Friday afternoon, after getting hit with criticism on his plan to strip citizenship from accused American terrorists, Scott Brown doubled-down. In a recent report by John DiStaso of NH Journal, "Brown suggested that in the meantime, Obama should consider issuing an executive order revoking the citizenship of the American terrorists. 'He likes executive orders,' Brown said. 'This is one executive order that I’d agree with.'"
Jim Rubens, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, issued the following statement:
"I don't believe that there is a single Republican in the nation who favors giving President Obama more power to remove Constitutional rights by simply putting pen to paper. Our nominee must demand a check on executive branch overreach, not someone who advocates giving Obama more power.
"According to FindLaw.com, 'Natural-born U.S. citizens may not have their citizenship revoked against their will'.
"I am sickened by the atrocities of ISIS. As prescribed by Article III of the Constitution, any U.S. citizen who has materially aided ISIS should be tried for treason and sentenced to death.
"Scott Brown's advocacy of unconstitutionally expanded executive branch powers parallels his vote to extend the Patriot Act which strips innocent citizens of privacy and due process protections.
"It is the solemn responsibility of a U.S. Senator to exercise sober and mature judgment in matters of war and peace. I encourage Scott Brown to reflect upon and retract his intemperate statement."
