IS teen Shamima Begum’s baby ‘can be British citizen’, suggests Sajid Javid | Politics News



Islamic State recruit Shamima Begum’s baby son can be British despite her citizenship being removed, Home Secretary Sajid Javid has suggested.

Speaking in the House of Commons on Wednesday, Mr Javid signalled the 19-year-old’s child could be allowed into the UK, despite his mother being barred.

He told MPs: “Children should not suffer, so if a parent does lose their British citizenship, it does not affect the rights of their child.

“Deprivation is a powerful tool that can only be used to keep the most dangerous individuals our of this country and we do not lose it lightly.

“But when someone turns their back on the fundamental values and supports terror, they don’t have an automatic right to return to the UK.

“We must put the safety and the security of our country first and I will not hesitate to act to protect it.”
