I am asking this because president Trump is calling for sending immigrants who approach the border from Mexico to be sent back without due process. I strongly suspect that it is illegal but a lot of googling and watching cable TV has not pinned down a possible loophole.
While it is completely uncontroversial that any person on US soil has the right to due process, I have not seen anything that gives these rights to people who approach the border but are prevented from crossing it. Specifically, what allows them to be granted admission, activating their right to due process.
The fourteenth amendment does explicitly protect “...life, liberty, or property, without due process...within its jurisdiction...”.
questions: - does interaction with a US border guard, even if one isn’t yet in the country, count as “within its(USA) jurisdiction”? - does refusal of admittance violate any of life, liberty or property? - is the proposal of the president legal?
I had expected that this question would be answered here alreadynbut I was unable to find anything.
