Trump revives century-old debate over revoking citizenship

Trump revives century-old debate over revoking citizenshipDonald Trump revived a century-old legal debate Tuesday morning when he Tweeted that anyone who burns the United States flag should face “loss of citizenship” or a year in jail. The Supreme Court held in 1989 that flag burning is a protected exercise of free speech, striking down 48 states’ laws prohibiting the act. Trump’s casual mention of stripping people of their U.S. citizenship as punishment, however, has an older and more tangled legal history—one that critics fear may get a fresh look under his presidency.
