Should illegal immigrants be given the right to due process before deportation from the US? No they should not, they are not citizens. US citizens have earned the right to due process or those that are visiting that are here legally.
Yes, especially considering the Supreme Court has consistently given rights to even illegal immigrants, especially in the case of Wong Wing v. U.S. Illegal immigrants should be guaranteed due process because otherwise the United States has the unconditional control over the fate of any illegal immigrants.
I do not agree with the US imprisoning anybody for being an illegal immigrant. My view is that if they can't prove right off the bat that they are legally in the US, they should be deported back to their country. When we are detaining aliens to have their due process, that is coming out of the taxpayers pocket. In FY 13 the budget for ICE was $5.9 million, the US Customs and Border Protection's budget was $11.9 billion. ICE has to keep approximately 34,000 beds nationwide that Congress has said it has to maintain the beds at full capacity. We as taxpayers are having to pay to feed the aliens, for medical attention if needed, and for the electricity they have in the detention centers.
The inherent problem of that argument is the ability given to the government to deport anyone they want if they can not prove they are a citizen, naturalized or not. This takes away rights even from the actual citizens themselves if the government wants to deport them. The other question is why the fact that someone is a citizen or not changes their person. Why should a murderer or rapist who happens to be a citizen be paid for, but a responsible but illegal immigrant not be granted the right to due process? They may be wrong, and then they re deported, but at least they were given a fair chance to argue their point?
To literally cite the Fourteenth Amendment of our own constitution- "...nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
The key word in the quote here is ANY. The article before this snippet specifically stated 'citizen' ("All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States..."), deliberately separating it from the section mentioning 'any person'. Your argument literally goes against what is stated in the Constitution, and what the Supreme Court has upheld for years; that even illegal immigrants are granted the right to due process.
Touch". I have my own personal ideas about our citizens in prison lol I am writing a argumentative paper stating that all illegal immigrants should be deported automatically. Other than the laws and constitution, what is your personal view or emotional view?
My personal view has nothing to do with the argument. I am arguing that illegal immigrants have a constitutional right to due process according to the fourteenth amendment. However, if the argument is emotional or personal I do believe illegal immigrants have the right to due process still. They are human beings, and they simply should not be deprived of such a simple right as the courts deciding whether they are deported whether they may stay. The courts are civilized; the government deporting without due process is not. Simple.
