The gitmo episode is bad enough. In my opinion, anyone who threatens the life of even one American does not deserve American fair trials. Why do we insist on fair trials for people that want us dead?

Did Timothy McVeigh deserve a trial?

My understanding is that the bill of rights applies to anyone in the USA. Immigration laws don't trump the bill of rights
