Here is the question as originally posed: Would it be reasonable for the United States to protect its sovereignty by denying citizenship to immigrants that hold beliefs that are directly antithetical to the values and ideals protected by our constitution?
For example: Would it be reasonable to deny citizenship to a member of a fundamentalist religion that sincerely believes that all governments should be run by the dictates of his/her religion, rather than the will of the people?
A corollary: would it be OK to withdraw citizenship from a native-born person who adopts anti-American views?
After the discussion some of us go to the El Arroyo on Wood Hollow to have something to eat and drink while the discussion continues and veers off into strange territory.
El Arroyo is across the parking lot in the strip mall behind the library, next to the HEB.
