Abstract:     
The essay discusses foreigners and citizens' status as a matter of national security concern. It firstly deals with immigration law and policy in the U.S. in the aftermath of 9/11. It then addresses citizens' status focusing on the phenomenon of foreign fighters. The Author argues that terrorism alters the link between citizens and the State, questioning the bond of allegiance and consequently the State responsibility to protect its citizens.
