Chatham Township Committee Resolution Urges Congress to Pass Expatriation of Terrorist Legislation


CHATHAM, NJ - Citing the murder of Brendan Tevlin by a self-admitted jihadist, the Chatham Township Committee unanimously passed a resolution urging Congress to pass "Expatriation of Terrorists Legislation," which would strip terrorists of their U.S. citizenship.

Tevlin, a 19-year-old from Livingston and a former Seton Hall Prep student, was allegedly shot to death by Ali Muhammed Brown on June 25.

Chatham Township Mayor Kevin Sullivan cited the Tevlin case as example for this legislation because it hits so close to home. A number of Chatham residents have attend or are enrolled at Seton Hall Prep.

The vote was unanimous, but Committee Member Bob Gallop noted that the committee should also add an amendment to the resolution, citing the failure of Congress to pass "gun-control" legislation after the killings at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Sullivan countered that it was a completely different situation.

"Gun control has to do with second-amendment rights," Sullivan said. "This is something everyone can agree on as common sense."

Committee member Kathy Abbott, before voting in the affirmative, wanted it known that "the resolution has nothing to do with prejudice against those who practice the religion of Islam?"
