NASHVILLE - Deporting criminals who are citizens of other countries sounds like a no-brainer, but what happens when their home countries won't take them back?
Iranians, Cubans and many Palestinians who are ordered deported from the United States cannot be returned to their homelands, experts said, and the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled they cannot be held indefinitely.
"There are countries that will not provide travel documents for their citizens to be returned," said Temple Black of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Solution? Helicopter them in, kick them out and leave. Let their own country worry about them.
