Yeah, because if not then those who bear grudge against that country will eventually terrorize and destroy that particular country and no matter how good the reinforcement is if there's strong determination there is a way.

Note: All of my sources will be at the bottom of my argument.

Argument: I will assume you are referring to the United States Government when you said, "Should we let citizens who want to join ISIS? (It doesn't mean we support ISIS)". First you state that anyone who would bear a grudge against our country would still terrorize and eventually destroy it if we don't allow them to join group. ISIS does not want to destroy America due to us not allowing Americans to join it, they want to destroy it due to conflicting belief systems.(Source 1) Also In your argument you state that any country would eventually be destroyed no matter what, yet in similar case with Al Qaeda efforts to prevent terrorism were in the most part successful. In documents seized from Osama bin Laden's house after his death, it was shown that Al Qaeda was having trouble requiting more members.(Source 2) This shows that efforts to reduce extremist membership are successful.

Conclusion: Allowing membership to ISIS will not stop their terrorist actions against us and we are capable of stopping the majority of people who try to join. For these reasons we should not allow people to join ISIS.
