« Google, Apple Blasted as No-Shows at Children's Online Privacy Hearing | Main | DISCLOSE Act Introduced To Respond To Citizens United Ruling »

Apart from the can-he-do-it question is the issue of whether any other country worth moving to would grant citizenship to an ex-con (any ex-con, let alone a sex offender), ex-patriot from America?

Harry Franks

This denial of a citizen to renounce his citizenship domestically with a denial that we are at War (so much for the Patriot Act), and the imminent passage of the International Megan's Law restricting foreign travel where he could denounce at a consulate, will effectively falsely imprison a sex offender for the rest of his natural life in a country he does not want to be in anymore. Where is the UN's High Commissioner on Human Rights when you need him? It is much better to be a citizen of the EU.
