LAURA INGRAHAM: Meanwhile, the French president is about to amend the constitution, stripping citizenship of the would-be jihadists, those French citizens who have sworn allegiance to ISIS. Well I should hope we're -- doesn't this all seem obvious to you? Of course we should be stripping citizenship. Why do they retain French passports, which are now EU passports? We shouldn't allow any of these people in our country to have U.S. passports. They should have their citizenship revoked.
INGRAHAM: Apparently we can't close our doors to anybody. Just can't do it. So we're supposed to compromise our security and go further into debt to help people in other countries, many of whom dislike us intensely, and that's putting it nicely. Think we're an evil, horrible country and more often than not they celebrate attacks against us. So we're supposed to lower our standard of living here in the United States, for what, exactly? You explain that to me. For a purely humanitarian reason? Well if that's the case we should have brought in the Christians before they were being slaughtered in the Middle East. And the ones that we can bring in, I think Jeb Bush is right on that. The Christians who we can verifiably say are Christians, who are in the threat of being slaughtered, I'm happy to bring in some of them. I think most people would. But all these other people, they've got to stay in the Middle East. We cannot be the warehouse of all these, you know, Muslim people coming from these far-flung lands where - we're just not going to be able to control who becomes radicalized, who doesn't because of technology, it's impossible.
