Why should this be any surprise coming from our government who rounded up anyone who even appeared to be Japanese and sent them to concentration camps at the beginning of the US involvement in World War II or even more recently when "enemy combattants" are stored at Guantanamo, Cuba without benefit of being charged with committing any crime or let them have any access to an attorney. The US is very selective about applying protections and only applies them when it's "convenient" for them to do so.
