The election of Indian immigrant Kshama Sawant as the first elected Socialist (she actually calls herself one) has many people outraged that a person would come from a country of poverty recovering from actual socialism to the free market capitalist capital of the world, only to run for office to spread socialism. So some are saying that she should have any citizenship revoked and be deported back to India.
Sawant only become a citizen of the US in 2010, and moved here about ten years ago or so. Her family is still in India.
Should Kshama Sawant have her citizenship stripped and be deported from the United States? We say yes.
