GOP Backs Alternative to Terrorist Deportation

Congress Works On 2 Versions of Intelligence Bill. House Republican leaders yesterday backed off a controversial proposal to allow deportation of foreign terrorism suspects to countries that practice torture, as lawmakers struggled to complete legislation to restructure the nation’s intelligence operations. Instead of the deportation proposal, GOP aides said the leadership was supporting an alternative to allow indefinite detention of such suspects in this country, without recourse to federal courts, at the discretion of the secretary of homeland security. The idea, the aides said, was to keep potentially dangerous noncitizens who are suspected of having links to terrorist groups from returning to American society at large just because they could not be deported as a result of torture practices in their home countries.
