Comment: Exiling US Citizens - Outdoing ICE agents who wantonly detain US citizens, CBP agents are now exiling US citizens (see an op-ed about the sad story of 4-year old Emily from the San Francisco Chronicle). This is what happens when too much discretion is given government employees on issues as serious as a claim of US citizenship. Such claims and issues related thereto should be examined by a more rigorous process, such as before a District Court Judge. Ruben Navarette, the award-winning journalist who wrote the op-ed referred to above, has a long and distinguished record writing about immigration issues. He refers to the travails of little Emily as a deportation. The proper legal term, in our opinion, is exile. A citizen cannot be deported, only exiled. It is the power and process of "expedited removal" that makes such exiles possible, and CBP has exiled dozens of US citizens since receiving the expedited removal power. It is important to realize that CBP did not abuse the power, abuse is inherent merely in possessing the power since this is too much power to leave to the Executive Branch's discretion to exercise. Congress should strip CBP of expedited removal authority, to restore a small dose of sanity to our immigration system.
